Find out if you have toxic elements like Antimony, Aluminum, Arsenic, Beryllium, Cadmium, Lead, Nickel, Mercury, Strontium, Thallium, Tin and others in you system.
Do you get all the Vitamins and Nutrients your body needs?
Hair tissue mineral analysis is unique in that it inexpensively provides information directly about cellular activity, which is the main site of nutritional metabolism. As important as vitamins are, they can do nothing for the body without proper mineral intake. Vitamins cannot function and are unable to be assimilated without the aid of minerals. Though the body can synthesize some vitamins, it cannot manufacture a single mineral.
Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis is an analytical test that measures nutrient and toxic mineral content of hair. As the constituents of the hair are determined by the entry of substances from external sources and from substances that enter it from the blood stream, hair makes an ideal medium for analysis. Levels of particular toxic and nutrient minerals can be used to diagnose behavioral disorders. Hair is used as one of the tissues of choice by the United States Environmental Protection agency in determining toxic metal exposure with the following summary: “The milk, urine, saliva and sweat measure the component that is absorbed but excreted. The blood measures the component absorbed and temporarily in circulation before excretion and/or storage. The hair, nails and teeth are tissues in which trace minerals are sequestered and/or stored.” Since the structure of hair remains unchanged, the minerals are fixed in the hair and levels in hair do not significantly change once that portion of hair has grown. The analysis accurately provides concentrations of minerals that have accumulated in the hair tissue over the hair growth period, approximately one to three months. Human head hair is a recording filament that can reflect metabolic changes.

As important as vitamins are, they can do nothing for the body without proper mineral intake. Vitamins cannot function and are unable to be assimilated without the aid of minerals. In most cases, identification of the deficiency or excess can be corrected by diet changes, work practice changes, or by supplementation appropriate for our requirements.
From adolescence through adulthood the average person is continually exposed to a variety of toxic metal sources through contamination from soil and foods, the environment, and topical application such as hair dyes, paint, ingestion from burnt fuels (lead), cigarette smoke (cadmium), hydrogenated oils (nickel), antiperspirants, soft drink and beer cans (aluminium), dental amalgams (mercury and cadmium), copper and aluminium cookware, insect repellent, water, work environment and industrial exposure. These are just some of the sources which can contribute to toxic metal exposure. Factors include the dose, duration, the route or pathway by which you are exposed (breathing, eating, drinking or skin contact), the other chemicals to which you are exposed, and your individual characteristics such as age, sex, nutritional status, family traits, lifestyle and state of health.
After screening your hair for 40 elements, 26 nutrients and other elements and 14 toxic elements, an informative thirty page report is forwarded to you in an easy to read graph style format showing various levels of nutrient or toxin imbalance in parts per million (PPM). This will show how your value relates to the normal or ideal reference range.
16 Essential Elements: (B) Boron (Cr) Chromium (Mn) Manganese (Se) Selenium (Ca) Calcium (I) Iodine (Mo) Molybdenum (Na) Sodium (Co) Cobalt (Fe) Iron (P) Phosphorous (S) Sulphur (Cu) Copper (Mg) Magnesium (K) Potassium (Zn) Zinc
12 Non-essential Elements: (Al) Aluminium (Li) Lithium (Rb) Ribidium (Sn) Tin (Bi) Bismuth (Ni) Nickel (Si) Silica (Ti) Titanium (Au) Gold (Pt) Platinum (Sr) Strontium (V) Vanadium 12 Toxic Elements: (Sb) Antimony (Be) Beryllium (Pb) Lead (Tl) Thallium (As) Arsenic (Cd) Cadmium (Hg) Mercury (W) Tungsten (Ba) Barium (Ge) Germanium (Ag) Silver (U) Uranium
Note: When it comes to toxins and heavy metals there is really no ‘safe’ level. Ideally you want to have all of these values in the not detectable range
Stool test kits
The most commonly done test is a comprehensive digestive stool analysis.
We can also test just for problems like Helicobactor, giardia or cryptosperidiom
Microbial Profiles offers the ability to detect and identify parasites, as well as provide valuable assessment of gut microbiome
The fecal multiplex DNA-PCR profile is detecting bacterial and parasitic pathogens most commonly responsible for causing infectious gastroenteritis
Transglutaminase IgA is another stool analysis for antibodies against gluten-related antigens
The pancreatic elastase test is being used to test for pancreatic insufficiency which can be the cause for many digestive problems
FMA is a fecal microbial analysis.
Urine / Saliva / Breath Test Kits
