Wholistic Mineral Balancing

 

Not feeling well? Tired of trying other things that haven’t worked to get you well? If you’ve been treating symptoms with little to no results you’re not getting to the root cause.

You may have had a hormone test that shows low hormone levels. You say, “Aha! I don’t feel well because I have low hormone levels!”

But WHY are your hormone levels low? 

You may go a step further and find out you have weak adrenals. “Aha! My hormones are low and I don’t feel well because I have weak adrenals!” 

But WHY do you have weak adrenals? 

Your body should be correcting these things. It has an amazing ability to adapt to stress. So why isn’t it?

YOU NEED TO GET TO THE ROOT CAUSE

The problem here is looking at individual body parts as separate from other body parts. This is false. Every part of the body affects every other part. The body is a chemical organism THAT WORKS AS A COMPLEX SYSTEM. It’s all about chemistry – down to the level of each and every cell. To understand why you don’t feel well, you need a means of looking at the body as a whole, of looking at the body’s chemistry, so you can find the ROOT CAUSE. That way, you will know exactly what to do to fix it. Once you know what nutrients the WHOLE body needs, in the EXACT COMBINATIONS that are correct for YOU, your body will be able to heal, often in astounding ways.

GOING BEYOND SYMPTOMS

We are very toxic today, and we are very deficient in the correct nutrients. Combine these problems, and the proper chemical reactions in the body can’t happen the way they should.

Breakdowns start to occur and then we begin to get symptoms:

  • Fatigue
  • Sinus congestion
  • Hormone imbalances
  • Headaches
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Hair loss
  • Anemia
  • Acne
  • Arthritis 
  • Osteoporosis
  • PMS (premenstrual syndrome)
  • Dandruff, Eczema, psoriasis and other skin problems
  • Chronic or recurring infections
  • Blood sugar problems (hypoglycemia, hyperglycemia, insulin resistance, diabetes, etc.)
  • Brain fog (inability to think clearly)
  • Inflammation and pain
  • Weight gain
  • Multiple chemical sensitivities
  • Adrenal and Thyroid Imbalances
  • And so on…

 

If you try to address any one of these symptoms as separate from the whole body, you likely won’t get very far. Most of the people who come to us have struggled with the “symptom approach” for years, but with our whole-body program, they finally get the results they’ve been striving for.

Once you know and provide the exact nutrients your whole body needs in the exact combinations to properly balance your body chemistry, your body starts to heal itself! Toxic metals and chemicals are removed naturally and safely, organs repair, cells can make more energy and symptoms start disappearing.

WHAT’S INVOLVED?

SAMPLE graphTo assess body chemistry, I use a Hair Mineral Analysis. I just need a sample of your hair which is then analyzed for mineral content. The amounts of minerals deposited in the hair tell us all kinds of things about your body chemistry. 

I will then determine what your individual nutritional needs are (everyone is different) to get your body to start healing itself. I go over all of this with you. I’ll provide you with a full analysis, recommended diet, some very specific supplements targeted to your body chemistry, and any other recommendations to help your body begin its healing journey through my Wholistic Mineral Balancing Program. You also get access to additional handouts, resources, videos and mp3s to help assist you on your journey to better health.

It’s as simple as that.

Basic hTMA Package no longer available.

In order for me to better serve you, I no longer offer the option of the basic hTMA consult which included the lab report with general dietary and supplement recommendations during a 45-minute result consultation. In order for Mineral Balancing to truly work you need a structured, personalized game plan with my support over a 2-4 month period. 

Only offering one consultation with general dietary and supplement recommendations was a disservice to my clients. I want you to get the best results and I truly want to help you heal your body to become your healthiest self which is why I am only offering one program option from here on.

For those who have already purchased the basic program option contact me for information on how to upgrade your program to get the best results.

Hair tissue mineral analysis (HTMA), is an analytical test which measures the mineral content of the hair. The sampled hair, obtained by cutting the first inch and one-half of growth closest to the scalp at the nape of the neck, is prepared in a licensed clinical laboratory through a series of chemical and high-temperature digestive procedures. Testing is then performed using highly sophisticated detection equipment and methods to achieve the most accurate and precise results.

Hair is ideal tissue for sampling and testing. First, it can be cut easily and painlessly and can be sent to the lab without special handling requirements. Second, clinical results have shown that a properly obtained sample can give an indication of mineral status and toxic metal accumulation following long term or even acute exposure.

A HTMA reveals a unique metabolic world: intracellular activity, which cannot be seen through most other tests. This provides a blueprint of the biochemistry occurring during the period of hair growth and development. 
Examples:

  • Thirty to 40 days following an acute exposure, elevated serum levels of lead may be undetectable. This is due to the body removing the lead from the serum as a protective measure and depositing the metal into such tissues as the liver, bones, teeth and hair.
  • Nutrient loss from the body can become so advanced that severe health conditions can develop without any appreciable changes noted in those same nutrient levels in a blood test.
  • Symptoms of elemental deficiency can be present long before low levels can be detected in the serum.
  • Excess sodium is associated with hypertension, but adequate amounts are required for normal health.

Hair is used as one of the tissues of choice by the Environmental Protection Agency in determining toxic metal exposure. A 1980 report from the E.P.A. stated that human hair can be effectively used for biological monitoring of the highest priority toxic metals. This report confirmed the findings of other studies in the U.S. and abroad, which concluded that human hair may be a more appropriate tissue than blood or urine for studying community exposure to some trace elements

Trace minerals are essential in countless metabolic functions in all phases of the life process.

  • Zinc is involved in the production, storage and secretion of insulin and is necessary for growth hormones.
  • Magnesium is required for normal muscular function, especially the heart. A deficiency has been associated with an increased incidence of abnormal heart condi tions, anxiety and nervousness.
  • Potassium is critical for normal nutrient transport into the cell. A deficiency can result in muscular weakness, mild depression and lethargy.
  • Excess sodium is associated with hypertension, but adequate amounts are required for normal health.

In the words of the late author and noted researcher, Dr. Henry Schroeder, trace elements (minerals) are “…more important factors in human nutrition than vitamins. The body can manufacture many vitamins, but it cannot produce necessary trace minerals or get rid of many possible excesses.”

There are many factors to take into consideration, such as:
DIET – Improper diet through high intake of refined and processed foods, alcohol and fad diets can all lead to a chemical imbalance. Even the nutrient content of a “healthy” diet can be inadequate, depending upon the soil in which the food was grown or the method in which it was prepared.
STRESS – Physical or emotional stress can deplete the body of many nutrients while also reducing the capability to absorb and utilize many nutrients.
MEDICATIONS – Both prescription and over-the-counter medications can deplete the body stores of nutrient minerals and/or increase the levels of toxic metals. These medications include diuretics, antacids, aspirin and oral contraceptives.
POLLUTION – From adolescence through adulthood the average person is continually exposed to a variety of toxic metal sources such as cigarette smoke (cadmium), hair dyes (lead), hydrogenated oils (nickel), anti-perspirants (aluminum), dental amalgams (mercury and cadmium), copper and aluminum cookware and lead-based cosmetics. These are just a few of the hundreds of sources which can contribute to nutrient imbalances and adverse metabolic effects.
NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENTS – Taking incorrect supplements or improper amounts of supplements can produce many vitamin and mineral excesses and/or deficiencies, contributing to an overall biochemical imbalance.
INHERITED PATTERNS – A predisposition toward certain mineral imbalances, deficiencies and excesses can be inherited from parents.

Minerals interact not only with each other but also with vitamins, proteins, carbohydrates and fats. Minerals influence each of these factors, and they, in turn, influence mineral status. Minerals act as enzyme activators, and vitamins are synergistic to minerals as coenzymes. It is extremely rare that a mineral disturbance develops without a corresponding disturbance in the synergistic vitamin(s). It is also rare for a disturbance in the utilization or activity of a vitamin to occur without affecting a synergistic mineral(s). For example, vitamin C affects iron absorption and reduces copper retention. Boron and iron influence the status of vitamin B2. Vitamin B2 affects the relationship between calcium and magnesium. Vitamin B1 enhances sodium retention, B12 enhances iron and cobalt absorption, and vitamin A enhances the utilization of zinc, while antagonizing vitamins D and E. Protein intake will affect zinc status, etc. Therefore, evaluating mineral status provides good clues of vitamin status and requirements. Continuing research at Trace Elements involves the recognition of many synergistic and antagonistic interrelationships between minerals and vitamins.

Hair tissue mineral analysis is supported by an impressive body of literature in a variety of respected national and international scientific publications. Over the past twenty-five years hair mineral testing has been extensive. Each year in the United States alone, federally licensed clinical laboratories perform over 150,000 hair mineral assays for health care professionals interested in an additional screening aid for a comprehensive patient evaluation. This does not take into consideration the thousands of subjects used in numerous continuing research studies conducted by private and government research agencies.
