Test your Hair
Why test Hair instead of Blood?
“Urine is only useful for a 12 to 24 hour period. It is very inaccurate, especially with larger variations in diet. Urine basically reveals which minerals are pushed out of the body not what is absorbed for for cellular fuel. Urine is useful for amino acid, bacteria, pH measurement.
Saliva is not directly correlated with the body’s specific mineral content in the cells. It is useful for hormone testing.
Stool has no direct correlation with the body’s specific mineral content in cells but can be used as validation for digestive problems in other testing.
Blood is not scientifically viable for baseline nutrition measurement. There is continuing controversy among leading nutritional scientists concerning its exact nutritional indicators. Blood can give allergy indications and much pathology (disease) information but little benefit for nutrition.
Bioscanners have much greater general scientifically acceptable correlation with the body’s specific cellular mineral content.
Red Blood Cells only reflect an “approximate picture of an individual’s mineral status.”* Isolated immune cells give more precise results but analyzing them is prohibitively expensive for most. Also, neither type of blood specimen demonstrates actual cellular storage levels over a meaningful period of time (1 day to 1 week maximum). Blood does not clearly hold and show long term heavy metal toxic levels or provide a precise picture of toxins that are accumulating on the outside of the body.
Hair Follicle is “the best specimen for the base-line screening of natural minerals and toxic metals in the body.”** After 40 years of research, data and positive medical outcomes, hair has now emerged as the most practical method of testing mineral balance in your body. ** Hair tissue also provides the most long-term information (8 – 12 weeks) about the body’s actual retention rates of the most essential 37 minerals, including toxic ones.”
