Hair analysis gives a long term reading of the mineral balances or excesses in your body that is unaffected by recent meals, activities such as exercise, or emotional states. Hair Mineral Analysis can be used to measure the levels of up to 60 essential minerals and toxic metals.
Minerals screened include electrolytes – calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium and phosphorus and trace minerals – copper, manganese, chromium, selenium, iron, molybdenum, lithium, cobalt and zinc. The results are useful for revealing long term stresses on the body, adrenal fatigue, thyroid function, blood sugar imbalances, protein synthesis, and more.
Food Intolerance Testing
Whilst simple elimination diets can be used to identify problem foods, this ‘trial and error’ approach is often imprecise and time consuming. It can take a long time to identify the offending foods and achieve long-term health improvements, even with help from a health professional.
Detection of food-specific IgG antibodies is recognized as a reliable method to identify foods that may be causing symptoms and to guide the design of elimination diets based on the IgG antibody results.
You’ll get a full report showing how tolerant or intolerant you are to each food tested and what dietary modifications you need to make, or what desensitization treatment would benefit you.
