Fibromyalgia can best be described as a condition involving pain in the muscles and fibrous tissues of the body. It is also often associated with general fatigue and tenderness. Fibromyalgia is becoming a fairly common pain diagnosis, especially when other chronic pain conditions become ruled out. A test that is gaining popularity when looking for fibromyalgia is a non-invasive test you can do at home called a hair analysis test.
A hair analysis test involves using a small sample of someone’s hair to assess their health. Hair is the second most metabolically active tissue in the body. It is influenced by genetics, hormones, and the environment. Proteins in the hair show us what a person has been exposed to, as well as what is within the body. The benefit of a hair test versus a blood test is that since the blood is a form of transport in the body, it will only show us what is currently being used. Hair, on the other hand, can show us what is stored within the body as well as how much of that is actually being used. As an example, older people generally have a lot of a lot of calcium in their arteries or joints, but this does not necessarily mean that it is able to be used in their bones.
Studies have shown that people with fibromyalgia have a high amount of calcium and magnesium in their hair. This actually points towards a deficiency of these within the body (since they are stored in an unusable form). Other results that point towards fibromyalgia are sodium/potassium imbalances or an abundance of toxic metals which lead to pain. At Nutritionally Yours, we recommend that those who struggle with pain take a hair analysis test to identify toxic buildups and extensive mineral deficiencies that are contributing to health challenges.
