Are you lacking vital minerals that are needed for energy production?
Minerals such as magnesium, selenium, manganese, copper, zinc, and others are required in critical steps of the body’s energy cycles. Hair analysis can reveal low mineral levels years before they show up on other tests.
Are toxic metals causing fatigue and other health problems?
Toxic metals such as mercury, lead, arsenic, aluminum, and others interfere with thousands of enzyme reactions, many of which have to do with energy production. Toxic metals go under the radar because blood tests are not good at detecting them. However, everyone today has high levels of toxic metals in their bodies due to contamination of the food, air, and water. Although no test can detect the total amount of toxic metals in the body, hair analysis is known as a reliable test for toxic metal poisoning.
Why Are Your Hormone Levels Low?
Many people learn they are tired all the time because they have low hormone levels. But instead of looking for a cause, most conventional and natural doctors prescribe daily hormone replacement medication to manage the problem. Meanwhile, hair analysis can reveal several underlying causes of low hormones, including copper and mercury toxicity, and low levels of selenium, zinc, and chromium.
Metabolic Imbalances, such as Slow Metabolism
Even when hormone levels are normal, many people still suffer from fatigue and other signs of hypothyroidism. This is because other factors can prevent hormones from being utilized within the cells. Hair analysis can show you if your hormones are reaching the cells and having the desired effect.
Adrenal Insufficiency, Adrenal Fatigue, Adrenal Burnout
Adrenal insufficiency refers to the inadequate production of adrenal hormones (aldosterone, cortisol, etc.). When adrenal hormone production is low, chronic fatigue and exhaustion are common. Since the adrenal hormones have powerful effects on your mineral levels, hair analysis can assess the adrenal glands from several angles. It is probably the most reliable test for adrenal insufficiency, a common condition today.
Your Metabolic Type: Are You a Fast or Slow Oxidizer?
Your metabolic type and oxidation rate give you a big picture view of your energy system. Trying to correct fatigue without knowing your metabolic type is a major reason why most nutrition programs fail. Hair analysis can measure your metabolic type and rate with mathematical precision.
Why Anemia Does Not Respond to Iron Supplementation
Many cases of anemia have nothing to do with iron deficiency. For example, without bioavailable copper, iron is not incorporated into hemoglobin. In this case, iron supplementation is a bad idea and can make your health worse. Hair analysis can identify several biochemical imbalances associated with anemia, including copper imbalance, lead toxicity, and cadmium toxicity.
Excessive stress from stimulant use, fast-paced lifestyles, worry, lack of rest, nutritional depletion, and other factors activates the sympathetic nervous system, also known as the fight-or-flight response. Over-stimulation of the sympathetic nervous system prevents adequate regeneration of the body and eventually leads to burnout. Hair analysis can show you if you’re stuck in fight-or-flight, and the impact it is having on your health.
Your Nutritional Needs
Each person has unique nutritional needs depending on their metabolic type, mineral balance, and other factors. Taking random supplements can easily upset your body chemistry and make matters worse. Hair analysis and nutritional balancing is a scientifically-valid way to determine which foods and supplements you need the most.
Copper toxicity is a common problem today, especially among women. Copper is intimately related to female organs and hormones, such as estrogen. When copper accumulates in the body, or when a synergistic factor is missing for copper metabolism, it can cause a set of symptoms that include fatigue, anxiety, depression, emotional sensitivity, skin conditions, mood swings, insomnia or trouble sleeping, and more. Hair analysis can measure your copper level and several indicators for hidden copper toxicity.
