Metals and minerals in the body are necessary for health, but also need to remain in balance with each other. Minerals affect various parts of the body – ranging from digestive functions to neurological and nervous system functions. Heavy metals, on the other hand, require less of a balance with other metals and instead require that they do not exceed the appropriate ranges. When a metal in the body reaches too high of a level, it is considered toxic and can have drastic effects on the body. Symptoms of elevated metals can include poor focus, anxiety, nervous system distress, twitches, tics, brain fog and more. A hair toxin analysis is the best way to test for metal toxicity within the body. Hair is the second most metabolically active tissue in the body, and you will actually see around 200x more metals in the hair than you would from blood or urine testing. Blood is a transport system in the body, meaning that minerals and other substance are carried through the blood to the appropriate organs and tissues. During this travel, metals and minerals are also deposited in the hair follicles. This means that while a blood test would only show what is happening at a given moment, a hair analysis would show what is happening in the entire body and can even give a history of levels in the body.
