The most abundant metal on earth is aluminum and we are being exposed to large amounts of it everyday. In many of the hair testing analysis we run on people we see higher levels of aluminum over any other metal or toxin.
Sources of aluminum are everywhere! First, aluminum is used in cookware. It is also in aluminum foil which is used to wrap food such as bake potato and corn. Soda and beer cans are made from aluminum which can get into our body since these drinks are acidic. Aluminum is in many medications like antacids and it is also in antiperspirants. For women, aluminum can be found in many cosmetic products so you might be putting this metal on your face!.
Hair levels of aluminum seem to be the same as bone levels of aluminum. Aluminum levels may show up high in the first hair testing analysis and then even higher in the second one when there is detox support provided to the body. The body starts pulling the metal out so it is seen more abundantly.
Symptoms of aluminum toxicity include: amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, anemia, blood disorders, colic, dental problems, dementia in kidney failure clients, parathyroid, fatty liver, Parkinson’s, Osteomalacia, ADHD, brain fog, IBS, dizziness and more.
With each hair testing analysis result (except the Basic) you are provided with a protocol to support better elimination of metals and balance of nutrients.
