Read about tests for allergies, intolerances, heavy metals and minerals. They can indeed be lifesavers.

Allergy, Intolerance, Mineral & Heavy Metal Testing


Allergy Testing. Why?

Allergy and intolerance reactions are symptoms, not the cause. Many other things need to be taken into consideration. It's somewhat like an iceberg where you see the tip, but there's much more underneath the surface.

Common allergic reactions include feeling tired, rundown, depression and headaches. Yet these forms of ill health are usually put down to stress or a busy lifestyle, and not necessarily an allergy. 

A good place to start is diet. There are foods that harm you and foods that heal - unfortunately no inbetween. If you eat foods your body doesnt like, then you add to the body's coping mechanisms workload.

How are allergies tested?

Allergies are tested by a private laboratory using a blood sample. Testing can be on IgG, IgA, or IgE depending on if you are checking for acute or chronic allergies.

Why have a Hair Mineral and Heavy Metal Test?

Every single mineral in the body has an effect on every other mineral in the body. The physical body is made up of minerals which are the basis of all life.

A hair analysis test is the best way to obtain a comprehensive and accurate mineral deficiency test and also test for potentially toxic heavy metals in the body.

Hair is the second most metabolically active tissue in the body. Hair tissue is affected by the blood, perspiration, environment, genetics, hormones and enzymes. The hair represents what is occurring inside the cells and the sub-molecular figures of the body.

A blood test shows what is happening outside the cell and the waste material being discarded. Hair gives a reading of what is being stored in the body. For example, if mercury is high in the hair, a higher concentration would also be found in organs like the kidney and liver.

A hair analysis gives a complete picture of your health history. A hair analysis test can indicate vitamin, mineral and nutritional deficiencies and heavy metal toxicity that has occurred over a long period.

All minerals need to be in balance for optimal health. For example, if calcium and magnesium levels are too low, you may have muscle twitches or trouble sleeping. If sodium and potassium are too high you may have hyperactivity.

If a hair analysis test indicates there is an elevated mineral toxicity, this means your minerals are getting stuck in connective tissues, instead of being utilized by your body. The key is that ALL your minerals need to be in balance with each other so they can nourish your body properly as they are meant to do.

Without a hair test, there is no scientific way to identify which vitamins and minerals you need for optimal physical and emotional health. Simply taking a general multi vitamin/mineral complex may not be what your body needs.
