No matter how healthy you eat or take care of yourself, you CANNOT achieve true health unless you purge heavy metals, environmental chemicals, and toxic forms of minerals from your system and replace them with bioavailable minerals. Everyone has toxic metals and chemicals embedded in their tissues and must actively purge them from their body. A nutritional balancing program based upon a hair mineral analysis reveals your body chemistry and provides a thorough program to detox from these carcinogens.
I highly recommend hair mineral analysis and nutritional balancing, based on my results, to improve your health and cure the underlying CAUSE of any illness you may have. This is the program I am using to heal my health. One day I realized I just didn’t feel good. I wanted to feel like I felt when I was younger — lean, full of energy, and optimistic. After experiencing very subtle health issues, for which my doctor didn’t provide realistic options to relieve their causes, I decided to try hair mineral analysis.
I was a bit skeptical at first. I’d heard from my naturopathic doctor and another health practitioner that hair mineral tests weren’t accurate. But a test’s accuracy, of course, depends on the company doing the test. I know the results of my hair mineral analysis are accurate because I had $4000 worth of testing from my doctor to figure out what was going on with my health. All the hair testing results matched exactly to what my medical tests revealed, but informed me of so much more! I’ve been on the program for ten months and feel incredible. I feel better and better everyday.
After being on the program for six months, subsequent tests from my doctor show my prior health issues are resolving — with no intervention other than the nutritional balancing program based on the hair mineral analysis. I am sleeping through the night, my adrenal gland health is improving, my hormone levels are slowly returning to normal, my thyroid is functioning better, my digestion is better, my mineral and vitamins levels have normalized, my inflammation levels have decreased, I’m losing weight, and my energy levels are better than they’ve been in years. Based on my results, I had to share this program with you!
Everyone is Toxic
The main reason everyone is toxic is due to contamination of our air, water, and food from industrialization, the use of plastics, pesticides, and hundreds of toxic chemicals and heavy metals that infest our environment. Even Inuit Indian mothers, who live in the most remote parts of the Arctic, have hundreds of chemicals and heavy metals in their breast milk. Smokestacks disseminate into the air manufacturing byproducts such as dioxins and PCBs. Clouds carry these potent triggers of cancer and disease to every continent and every body of water. No one can escape the plague our industrialized world has wrought on our health.
What makes this problem even worse is that our food is quite nutrient-deficient. The more nutrient-deficient we become, the more we accumulate toxins in our bodies and the harder it is for our bodies to remove them.
Heavy metals are deadly hidden toxins in our food and environment. Cadmium, aluminum, mercury, antimony, lead, arsenic and others are added to the food chain from upstream industrial dumping and pollution, pesticide runoff, incinerator emissions, smokestacks, aviation, and auto exhaust. Our bodies cannot metabolize these metals, which must be actively purged from the body on a continual basis before they cause disease.
Mercury is one of the most toxic metals known. Lowering the immune system, it is implicated in cancer, autoimmune diseases, allergies, Candida (yeast) overgrowth, and multiple sclerosis, to name only a few. It cuts the oxygen carrying capacity of the blood by half, accounting for many instances of chronic fatigue. Mercury has an affinity for brain tissue, attributing to widespread dementia and neurological problems. Primary sources of exposure include food (fish), dental fillings, and the burning of coal for electricity. Mercury accumulates in the tissue of fish that eat contaminated algae and other fish. The mercury travels straight up the food chain to the most prized fish — tuna, swordfish, shark, roughy, halibut, bass, and trout. Sushi anyone?
Aluminum contamination is contributing to the rising epidemic of Alzheimer’s disease. It accumulates in your brain, where it kills neurons, leading to memory loss. We absorb it from baking soda, underarm deodorant, toothpaste, drinking water, soda cans, aluminum foil, and aluminum kitchen appliances and utensils. Giant aluminum vats used to make processed foods leach it into the food. It’s also an anti-caking agent added to salt and sugar.
Lead toxicity at low levels is very common. Adults can suffer fertility issues, high blood pressure, nerve disorders, memory problems, and muscle and joint pain. Children can suffer damage to the brain and nervous system, leading to ADHD, slowed growth, etc. Coal burning plants spew lead into the atmosphere. Lead contaminates drinking water.
Many doctors test for heavy metals and perform heavy metal chelation and detoxification. One must be very careful to not chelate minerals from the body forcibly. Patients have died attempting to chelate metals too fast. Many people with heavy metal toxicity are also nutritionally depleted. Without adequate nutrients required to carry heavy metals out of the body, namely vitamin C, glutathione, and alpha lipoic acid, a person cannot eliminate heavy metals fast enough when they are purged too quickly with chelation. Heavy metals then build up in the body’s detoxification routes — the liver, kidneys, and intestines and can cause serious, if not fatal, health consequences. Nutritional balancing offers a gentle, slow program to rid the body of heavy metals safely because you remineralize your body while eating a healthy diet, allowing the body to slowly detoxify.
Due to depleted soils, almost everyone is mineral deficient. Even babies are extremely mineral deficient and toxic because their mothers, today, are nutritionally depleted and toxic, and the conditions are passed directly from mother to child. The answer is due to a combination of the following:
- A nutritionally bankrupt, genetically modified food supply. The soil is depleted in most of the world and hybrid crops are designed for depleted soil but do not contain nearly as many minerals. This is amply proven by USDA statistics.
- Pesticides like Roundup that are sprayed heavily on food crops work by chelating minerals from a weed, killing it. The pesticide also chelates minerals from the soil. The pesticide continues to do its job of chelating minerals in your body when you eat these residues from conventional produce.
- Refined and junk food diet. This is mainly eating white flour, white rice, white refined sugar and refined table salt. These unnatural foods rob minerals from your body in order to be processed by the body.
- Several thousand chemical food additives found in processed and prepared foods damage the absorption of nutrients.
- Eating a lot of wheat and other irritating foods damage the intestinal tract, reducing nutrient absorption.
- Eating raw food and vegetarian diets always makes nutrient deficiencies much, much worse. Vegetables must be cooked to obtain the minerals within the plant cell walls. We don’t have the digestive system to break down the cell walls in raw foods to benefit from their nutrition. Vegetarian diets, unless very carefully monitored and supplemented, lack vitamins and minerals we need that can only be found in meat.
- Stress reduces digestive ability in most people.
- Illness reduces digestive ability significantly.
- Fatigue reduces digestive ability in a vicious cycle that leads to more illness.
- Taking medical drugs usually irritates the intestinal tract and worsens digestion. Most drugs also interfere and use up nutrients, and contain toxins, making the situation much worse. Vaccines, including flu shots, are even worse, as they contain mercury and many other toxic substances.
Conventional Medicine Won’t Cure You
Conventional medicine almost completely ignores the problem of epidemic toxicity of the body. It does not recognize the direct connection between toxicity and the illnesses of our times. Thousands of environmental toxins permeate every aspect of our air, food, and water. These toxins invariably make their way into our bodies. For most of them, our body has no detoxification mechanism. Once these chemicals are stored in our fat, they can migrate through the body damaging our cellular chemistry. Eventually the poisoning reaches a point where the damage results in symptoms and disease labels. The only proven way to reverse disease and permanently get rid of the underlying causes is to correct nutritional deficiencies and reverse toxicity.
Most mainstream medical doctors, holistic doctors and even naturopaths do not understand that most disease is the result of heavy metal and environmental pollution in combination with mineral and vitamin deficiencies. If they did, they would not waste the people’s money on expensive tests and drugs that make things worse. Medications do nothing to get rid of the underlying cause of disease, much less bring a cure. In fact, by adding one more chemical to an already overwhelmed body, they usher in new symptoms and disease. Physicians are programmed to practice drug-driven medicine where every symptom dictates a drug or surgery. This lends itself to myopia — not seeing the most obvious cause of disease and using safer, natural methods to treat their patients. Medicated patients get sicker quicker. Don’t get me wrong. Modern medicine and medications absolutely save lives. However, our country is grossly overmedicated in a medical system largely controlled by Big Pharma.
Valuable treatment time is wasted in vain with needless medication, surgeries, herbs (especially Ayurvedic and Chinese herbs, which contain toxic metals), homeopathy, symptomatic vitamin and mineral therapy, all sorts of diets, and even chelation. People simply need help to gently and safely remove toxic metals and chemicals from their body. Nutritional balancing, with the help of infrared sauna therapy and coffee enemas, are one of the very few methods I am aware of that accomplishes this all the time, without fail.
Conditions Helped with Hair Mineral Analysis
Almost any condition can be helped with a properly performed and analyzed hair mineral analysis. Your body knows what’s wrong and what needs to be corrected. It’s just missing the tools to do the job. When one addresses the body chemistry as a whole with the correct combination of nutrients, the body then has the tools to heal itself, and all manner of unwanted conditions can then be addressed. For example, the program is very successful in healing adrenal and thyroid issues. Mental issues can be addressed, as well, such as depression and anxiety. Other areas often benefitted are: skin health, anti-aging, weight issues, hypoglycemia, fatigue, digestive problems, headaches, PMS, infertility, mood swings, insomnia, osteoporosis, and many others. If your disease or symptoms do not resolve, at the very least your symptoms and underlying health will improve by mineralizing your body and removing heavy metal toxicity.
Why Do Mineral Hair Testing?
A hair mineral analysis is an incredibly powerful tool in diagnosing and providing a comprehensive program to recover your health. The hair is tested because it is one of many places the body dumps excess minerals and heavy metals for storage away from vital organs. The amounts of minerals deposited in the hair reveal all kinds of things about your body chemistry. The hair test is done with a nutritionist trained in nutritional balancing, who can take your sample in person or you cut your own sample and mail it to the nutritionist.
There are many companies that do hair mineral analysis, but the Endomet program, described below, is quite unique. The research behind it is very extensive and involved hundreds of thousands of hair analyses. It is very different from other forms of hair analysis. This program entails a series of tests to continually monitor your heavy metal toxicity and mineral levels. Many tests over a period of one or more years are necessary because it takes time for your body to release its stores of heavy metals and toxic forms of minerals. Your toxicity level will not completely show or show at all on your first test. If you’ve done a test with another company or your doctor, please be aware that a glowing first test means nothing — heavy metals stored in your tissues may not show on the test. They must actively be purged for months or years and will only reveal themselves on subsequent hair tests as they are removed from the tissues and flushed out of the body.
Sample Hair Test Graph
The test shows mineral levels, heavy metals and important mineral ratios. For an interpretation and more information about a hair test, see my blog post series Dear Detox Diary where I post my own hair mineral tests and explain them in detail.
The Nutritional Balancing Program
Based on your hair test results, you will be given supplements to balance your minerals and detox heavy metals and chemicals, in addition to a detox plan and a diet tailored specifically to your mineral deficiencies and metabolic needs. Once you know and provide the exact nutrients your whole body needs, in the exact combinations to properly balance your body chemistry, your body starts to heal itself. Toxic metals and chemicals are removed naturally and safely; cells can make more energy and symptoms start disappearing.
The nutritional balancing program includes:
- Nutritional Assessment through hair mineral analysis.
- Recommendations for a wholesome diet of natural foods appropriate for your metabolism and digestive ability.
- Lifestyle modification recommendations to reduce harmful stressors.
- Supplements to enhance overall metabolism, eliminate toxic metals, and enhance absorption and digestion of food.
- Recommendations for detoxification
For the program to be effective, you will need to do hair mineral retests every 3-4 months and change your supplements and diet accordingly until you are in balance. This can take 2-3 years.
