Have you ever been to the doctor because you haven’t been feeling up-to par? The doctor checks your vitals, orders some blood tests, analyzes it, and then lets you know whats going on. Finally, they give you a treatment or medication to get you back to your healthy self. But what happens if you still don’t feel as good as you once did. You go back to the doctor to get more blood tests done. The result, perfect! Your blood panel reveals that your vitamin, cholesterol, hormones, etc are normal.
Then why don’t you feel good! Well there could be an underlying issue that the blood tests are missing. One thing that is not perfect with a blood test, is mineral analysis. Mineral levels are around 10 times more concentrated in you hair. So with that being known, test the hair.
How do minerals affect my body?
Best way to put it, minerals are the kick-start to putting life in to your body. They provide proper functions to your body’s organs and tissue. Imbalanced minerals can store and build up in organs and tissues and prevent healthy functions.
Balanced Minerals = Balanced Hormones = Healthy Body
Your body contains enzymes, which literally put life in to your blood, and enzyme activity is controlled by mineral balance. View your body as a machine, for it to work properly, you must have the correct elements working in sync. Balanced minerals allow for better communication between enzymes. The below video is a perfect example of the necessity of mineral balance. It shows how a light bulb can conduct electricity through balanced minerals.
What is a Hair Mineral Analysis?
Hair mineral analysis is a test where a sample of you hair is analyzed by a lab to give you an actual result of mineral balances in your body. It analyzes Nutritional, Toxic, and Other Mineral Elements. The test can show you what you need to change in your diet such as: eating less junk food or more healthy foods, or supplementing with specific minerals.
Here’s what you do…
Cut a few strands of hair and mail to the Liveto110 lab to analyze your hair!
You may notice that your mineral levels are out of whack or have higher traces of toxic minerals. This is primarily due to the lower contents of minerals in our food as well as environmental contamination.
Uh-Oh, I have high amounts of Toxic Elements! Now What?
Don’t worry, there are treatments. If they are too high, you would probably be in the hospital. These Toxic elements are classified as heavy metals, which are dangerous. Heavy metal toxicity can lead to many health ailments and conditions with cases that include:
diabetes, cancer, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, anorexia, fatigue, premenstrual syndrome, depression, anxiety, migraine headaches, allergies, childhood hyperactivity, learning disorders, adrenal gland dysfunction, thyroid dysfunction, anemia, colic, dental caries, dementia dialactica, hypoparathyroidism, alopecia, bipolar disorder, birth defects, blushing, depression, dermatitis, dizziness, fatigue, headaches, hearing loss, hyperactivity, immune system dysfunction, infections, insomnia, kidney damage, liver damage, memory loss, mood swings, nervousness, numbness and tingling, pain in limbs, schizophrenia, tremors, peripheral vision loss, muscle weakness, neuromuscular disorders, osteomalacia, hypoglycemia, feelings of anger and rage, etc
Heavy Metal Detox
A heavy metal detox consists of consuming special clay or even charcoal. There are many different ways to detox heavy metals that I will explain in depth in a future post. But right now, you can go purchase Edible Bentonite Clay or take a Clay Bath to remove these toxins.
We personally use Bentonite Clay from Now Foods as it is cheap and of decent quality.
