HAIR MINERAL ANALYSIS (test and report)
HAIR MINERAL ANALYSIS AND NUTRITIONAL CONSULT (test, report and consult)
Have you ever wondered if you were deficient in essential vitamins and minerals?
Did you know that even eating lots of fruits and vegetables does not mean you are getting enough minerals due to soil depletion?
Would you like to know what you are missing or in excess of?
Hair mineral analysis measures your hair for mineral content and if you have heavy metal exposure. Your hair is actually a soft body tissue and as it grows it forms a record and can be analyzed to detect nutritional deficiencies or excesses.
Minerals work together and not in isolation. There is a delicate balance so when one mineral is out of balance it can affect the balance of other minerals and in turn can cause problems resulting in symptoms. We are all biologically unique, can be challenged by our ability to absorb and imbalances can show up differently in each of us. Factors to consider are our diet, source of food, stress, pollution, medications, supplements and our own unique biology and genetics.
Hair mineral analysis is a screening tool and not intended to diagnosis.
It is a fast and easy to do. Sample hair is cut from the nape and set to the lab without special requirements.
HAIR ANALYSIS FOR CORTISOL (test and report)
HAIR ANALYSIS FOR CORTISOL AND NUTRITIONAL CONSULT (test, report and consult)
Cortisol is your stress hormone. It is released from your adrenal glands in response to stress.
The test shows cortisol level and because the measurement is in the hair it offers a long term (1 to 3 months) view of stress in the body rather than a day snapshot that would be seen in blood or salvia test. This will indicate if there is chronic stress in your body.
FOOD INTOLERANCE/SENSITIVITY IgG TEST (test and report)
IgG TEST AND NUTRITIONAL CONSULT (test, report and consult)
Food sensitivity is a delayed reaction meaning that symptoms occur hours or days after consuming a particular food making it difficult to pinpoint the cause. Delayed reactions from a certain food triggers an IgG antibody. An antibody is a response as a means to protect against bacteria, a virus or a foreign substance in the body.
Common reactions for example are headaches, diarrhea, alternating diarrhea and constipation, bloating, indigestion, fatigue, inability to lose or gain weight, skin irruptions like eczema, etc.
Understanding what food you are sensitive to means you can eliminate these foods from your diet to obtain relief from your symptoms. In some cases it does not mean that you can never eat those foods again. Reintroduction can occur at a later date to test you sensitivity.
