Hair mineral analysis is one of the best kept secrets to attaining better health and it has been performed by laboratories for decades. Some laboratories are more accurate than others and certain technicians are more adept at interpreting the results than others. The majority of health challenges are associated with mineral imbalances or toxic metal excesses; hair mineral analysis is a way to learn of our underlying health challenges. I have recently learned of a lab that Dr. Zoltan Rona uses to help his clients. Dr. Rona wrote the Foreword for my first book. He is a medical doctor that implements natural solutions with incredible success; I have great respect for his knowledge and work, and recently for the lab with which he has partnered, called CanAlt Health Laboratories.
As hair grows, it forms a permanent record of the body’s nutritional deficiencies or excesses. Hair mineral analysis is a screening test to measure the levels of up to 60 essential minerals and heavy metals. With correct testing and interpretation, one can construct a complete metabolic profile of the human body. High levels of toxic metals, for example, can inhibit the body’s ability to process and assimilate specific nutritional elements that are essential to good health.
Here are some examples of health challenges that can be associated with mineral imbalances or toxic metal excesses:
- Alzheimer’s Disease
- Anxiety and depression
- Blood sugar imbalances
- Digestive disorders
- Headaches including migraines
- Hair loss
- Heart failure
- Inability to lose weight
- Infertility and miscarriage
- Learning disabilities
- Lethargy or weakness
- Muscle weakness
- Parkinson’s Disease
I recently had hair mineral analysis done by this lab and learned that it was my adrenal glands (stress) that was driving my minor health challenges. In all of these years, I never knew that my adrenals were so out of balance. I learned that excess heavy metals are not a problem for me. And I was able to see the exact minerals I was deficient in and, in some cases, had too much of! These are details that I had been unable to find through other natural health experts.
How a hair sample is taken:
- A sample is taken from clean, new hair growth closest to the scalp (hair can be coloured)
- A sample length of 1 – 1.5 inches is optimal
- A sample size of about one tablespoon is sufficient
- It is sealed in a plastic bag and mailed to the lab
I have always used symptoms to tell me what the body needs and will continue to do so, as this method is successful. But I know that many individuals prefer to see their health challenges in reports. Therefore, I am now offering this service to clients. The cost of the hair analysis is $100 and then we will meet to go over the results and recommendations; the cost of that appointment will be $75. Spring is a time of renewal; consider this option in taking charge of your health and turning things around for yourself or your child.
