There is so much beneficial health information to learn from hair analysis testing!
Have you ever wondered about toxic metal build-up? Hair analysis testing is the best way to learn if there is a toxic metal overload in your tissues.
Some symptoms of metal toxicity are:
Fatigue, Muscle aches, Joint pain, Sinus congestion, Postnasal drip, Excessive sinus problems, Headaches, Bloating, Gas, Constipation, Diarrhea, Foul-smelling stools, Heartburn, Sleep problems, Difficulty concentrating, Food cravings, Water retention, Trouble losing weight, Rashes, Skin problems, Eczema, Psoriasis, Canker sores, Acne, Puffy, dark circles under the eyes, Premenstrual syndrome, Other menstrual disorders, Bad breath.
What a daunting list, right?
When hair analysis testing shows that our bodies are toxic, we can have some of the symptoms listed above, plus metal toxicity can cause our bodies to have trouble with the absorption of vital minerals. For metals and essential minerals to be absorbed, they must bind with transporters in the small intestines. Many toxic metals use the same binders as metals. This means toxic metals can be taken up in place of essential minerals, leading to a deficiency.
Hair analysis testing can help you find out if you have mineral deficiencies and toxic metals.
You can support detox with specific nutrients and help your body get its minerals back to optimum levels. Nutrient elements including magnesium, chromium, zinc, copper, and selenium are obligatory co-factors for hundreds of necessary enzymes and are essential for vitamins’ normal functions.
If your hair has healthy nutrients, so do the other tissues in your body—maybe there is an organ or part of your body that needs support, and you do not know it yet; this is another reason hair analysis testing is so necessary! “Heavy metals affect almost every organ and body system, which can lead to wide-ranging health problems. Some areas are more vulnerable to certain metals. For example, arsenic affects the skin, lungs, brain, kidneys, liver, metabolic system, cardiovascular system, immune system, and endocrine system. On the other hand, cadmium impacts the bones, kidneys, liver, lungs, testes, brain, immune system, and cardiovascular system.
Naturally, there is some cross-over, with most heavy metals affecting the liver and brain. Simply put, metal toxicity is serious business, and so is hair analysis testing.
