The vast majority of biochemical functions take place in the body’s cells. Most cells cannot easily be accessed without invasive procedures, but the cells of the hair are readily available. Extensive research has shown a reliable relationship between the level of minerals in the hair and those of other tissues in the body. Analysis, therefore, of the mineral content of your hair can be used to provide a general blueprint of the mineral activity in the rest of your body.
We use the pioneers and leaders of the Hair Mineral Analysis industry, who provide the best technology, research and experience in interpreting the results. Our laboratory do not sell supplements, so are totally unbiased in their supplement recommendations, unlike most other laboratories.
Your hair needs to be washed thoroughly eight times for all of the chemicals and toxins in the hair dye to be eliminated. Once this is done the dyeing process will not affect your results.
As long as you make us fully aware of any medication you are taking this can be taken into account and usually will not affect your program. Our aim is for you to reduce, and finally eliminate, most pharmaceutical medication. However, this has to be done with the authorisation of your doctor or GP.
This really depends on how many supplements you decide to take – if any. The cost really varies on how critical your health situation is and how many supplements you are happy to take. A moderate program would usually cost around £40-£50 per month.
When your body is tired and run down it is not as effective at processing the food you eat and taking out the minerals you need. In order for the body to absorb minerals it needs them to be bound to amino-acids, a process called `chelation.’ Again, when your body is tired you are less able to carry out this process effectively. Taking a ready-chelated supplement, containing the correct mineral, can help ensure your body gets what it needs to heal and be healthy.
Also, due to many factors our food today is not as packed with nutrients as you might assume. Plus, it is very hard to measure how much of each mineral you are consuming within each part of your food.
Supplements can never replace food, but can really assist the body in a healing process and help maintain its healthy state when used as part of a healthy diet.
