Did you know that your hair can tell a story about YOU? YES, your hair says a lot about YOU and your health, including if you have a mineral deficiency.
We do not all eat the way we should every day. That is just honest. We are busy with life, kids, social activities, work, church, friends, etc., etc., and etc. It is best for us to eat a healthy, home cooked meal every night but that does not always seem to happen in today’s world. And the food we do eat is not enriched with natural minerals or nutrients like our parents or grandparents food was.
So what happens? Our body starts to show signs of nutrient and mineral deficiency. What does a hair analysis test uncover to help you? Well, what shows up in your body WILL show up in your hair. Your hair really does tell a story of your health.
If your bones are low in calcium or magnesium for example, it will be uncovered in a hair analysis test. And you may have osteoporosis or osteopenia. Your skin may not heal as well as it used to when it is bruised, and your hair may be showing signs of damage. That sounds like the mineral zinc deficiency. And when the heart starts doing odd fluttering things, nerves or muscles start acting up, that is usually a sign of a deficiency in the mineral magnesium, which can also show up in a hair analysis test.
Feeling stressed, wired and tired? Have you checked your sodium to potassium ratio levels? They can tell so much! If sodium and potassium are both high, there may be a high blood pressure issue or a high-stress level causing adrenal overload. If sodium and potassium are both low, the opposite can occur. Then there may be an adrenal burnout, chronic fatigue, and low thyroid or low blood pressure. Did you know that a hair analysis test can uncover an adrenal or thyroid issue?
And if metals are high, did you know this can cause minerals to “fall out” from where they are needed to go? Yes, that is right! If there is high aluminum, for example, it may cause what seems to be a calcium mineral deficiency even though you may be taking calcium. The calcium will not work FOR you if there is an aluminum overload.
Your hair is an exciting part of your body! It can uncover so much about YOU and your health.
