Mineral Hair Analysis/Heavy Metals

Hair tissue analysis is a safe, specialised non intrusive health screening tool for measuring the body’s mineral status, highlighting potential health problems and helping to treat them through a nutritional program tailored to meet the individual’s health needs. Mineral concentrations in the hair can provide a reliable indicator of mineral and toxic element stores in the whole body. Research has shown the hair mineral levels reflect stored mineral levels in other body tissues.

Homocysteine levels

This test is used to determine B12 and folate deficiencies.

Homocysteine may be elevated before B12 and folate testing reveals this. This test may also be ordered as part of a cardiac risk assessment depending on age and other risk factors.

Urinary Iodine.

There is an epidemic of Iodine deficiency, one that affects every man woman and child. Over the last 30 years our Iodine intake has declined 50%, while the intake of toxic competing halogens (bromine, fluorine, chlorine, perchlorate) have dramatically increased in our food, water and the environment. At the same time there has been an increase in the rates of thyroid disease, breast cancer, fibrocystic breast disease, prostate cancer. In Japan, Iodine intake is up to 100 times higher and the incidence of these diseases is significantly lower.
