The other day, I was counseling a new client. This person really wanted to feel better but stated they were unsure how a naturopathic (natural) clinic could help her. I asked her to keep an open mind.
Her story was one that I had heard many times. She had spent years dealing with the same poor health symptoms. She visited many traditional medical clinics and spent too much money with no solutions to her poor health and wellness. So, on the recommendation of friend she comes to me as her “last resort”.
After listening to her story, I decided that a hair analysis would be the proper testing to see if a toxic overload or mineral imbalance was at the root cause of her symptoms. She questioned me about a hair analysis test. I told her a story about a lady (age 55 ish) that did a hair analysis even though she was not a believer. The hair analysis showed high calcium, magnesium, sodium and potassium. I explained to her that she needed to adjust her diet or high blood pressure may be in line for her. She did not believe me. One year later she came in and said, “Ok, I don’t understand it, but you were right!” I have high blood pressure now and you need to teach me what to do.” So the new client in my office agreed to let me run a hair analysis on her too.
While cutting her hair I explained that for many years, hair analysis has been used to help identify the causes of poor health. This is because hair is one of the most metabolically active tissues of the body. As hair is growing the body deposits levels of minerals and metals into the hair and that level of those elements are reflective of what is being stored in the body. I then showed her a medical review of 77 women and how a woman’s dietary intake of certain minerals and metals can be reflected in a hair analysis.
I also told her that results from hair analysis are considered so reliable that they have been used as admissible evidence in court cases.
At this the client seemed more understanding of the idea of having her hair analyzed. I asked my assistant to take the sample of woman’s hair and send it off to the lab for analysis.
3 weeks later the lady returned to my office to review the results. She was shocked to see that her hair analysis compared almost identically to her symptoms! Based on her symptoms and hair analysis test results she was given some dietary changes and a few supplements. We also removed some supplements that she had been taking for quite a while because they hair analysis showed her to be high in those elements.
Four weeks later she returned to the office. She stated she was feeling wonderful and satisfied that we were able to find the root cause of her health symptoms! We suggested she return in 5 months to repeat the hair analysis to see the actual lab improvements.
The neatest thing about hair analysis is that you don’t have to come to our office to get one done! You can simply visit our website and go directly to our online store to ORDER. Once you order the analysis we will ship you the kit directly to your home. Then follow the directions to cut your hair sample and mail it to our lab. Once analysis is complete and the results are available we will email you results. (2-3 weeks)
