Hair Analysis Testing

I am excited to offer Hair Analysis Testing, having found it invaluable to determining nutritional causes of loss of wellbeing and disease.

Vitamin and mineral levels are assessed, ensuring that any supplements are the ones needed and not a waste of money! Taking the wrong supplements can really put the kibosh on your overall health unbalancing the rest of the vitamin and mineral levels, and potentially causing toxicity.  While some vitamins, like vitamin C can just be excreted if too much is ingested (usually through increased nasal secretions and diarrhea), other vitamins like B6 can lead to nerve injury if too much is ingested as the body can not dump the excess. Getting the levels right is crucial, as too much is as bad as too little.  The report tells you if you are likely to be able to increase any deficient levels using just normal foods, or if it is very low, if a supplement may be helpful.  You may be surprised by how few supplements you actually need, and how easy it is to boost yourself by eating the right foods. Lets face it, who likes taking pills?

Food sensitivities can be identified. A sensitivity is very similar to an allergy, but does not cause anaphylactic shock, so is not considered life threatening.  However, sensitivity causes inflammation and can cause debilitating diseases such as IBS, arthritis, headaches, muscular aches and pains, unexplained stubbon excess weight gain and poor memory are amongst commonly reported symptoms - that can be cured or alleviated by avoiding troublesome foods. Over 150 commonly eaten foods are tested, and advice given to what needs avoiding and what needs cutting out. A retest is recommended to ascertain if the intolerance persists following actions suggested. By addressing the nutritional status of your body and organs, supporting correct gut flora and avoiding troublesome foods for between 3 to 6 months is often enough to heal an intolerance.

The test also highlights the health of your gut flora, identifying which probiotics and or foods may be needed to ensure your digestion works properly. The area of  Gut Health and probiotics has grown massively in the last 10 years or so, but many of the commercially available products in your supermarket have unproven results on your digestion process. They are often also mixed with dairy products (a common intolerance), and contain sugars which feed the unhelpful bacteria like candida, so may even be detrimental to your gut health.  Don't give up hope tho!! There are products available that have been scientifically studied, and a range of budgets can accommodate the products.  My favourite is Symprove, a liquid formulation that you take for 12 weeks. Symprove are currently working with the NHS in clinical trials to show the effectiveness of this therapy - and they are going well. For more information about Symprove, clich here   Another great range is created by a local Alton based company, Optibac.  Their products are very highly rated in the industry, and for more information on them, click here. The report will also offer dietary options and other brands of probiotic for you to consider.

The analysis indicates the acidity/alkalinity of your system, a hot topic in recent years for the argument that disease, and specifically cancers can not survive in an alkaline system for example. A nice explanation can be found here

The energetic health of your organs is assessed, and suggestions made as to if special care may help your system improve, and what you can do to make sure your organs are tip top happy healthy.

The benefits of using Hair analysis compared to blood testing are broad and many. Cost is an easy one - its far cheaper!  It is also better at recording what actually happens within your cells - your blood could have low or high levels of nutrients one day, but another day they could be very different. The long term effect can not be gauged.  With testing hair, we can see if the overall effect is note worthy or not. Taking a small sample of hair is non-invasive unlike a blood test, so naturally carries no risk unlike blood sampling. There are many articles on the web that both campion and try to discredit this kind of testing. You have to make up your own mind about it, but I have been using the system for some time, and have seen the results speak for themselves, as well as believing in the scientific research that has gone into developing the test.

I will take a small lock of hair from the back of your head, cut close to your scalp. I take an area less than the width of a pencil.  It really won't notice, but if you are worried we can discuss this further. we need hair that has just grown to that we can see where your body is at right now - and also hair that has not had 7 years of washing and atmospheric pollutants.  It doesn't matter if your hair has been dyed.

We use a Certified Class 11 Medical Device which  is said to be the most advanced system available in its field. It has the largest frequency software package in the world and is capable of assessing underlying imbalances, measuring 55 different electrical factors of the body. 

A small lock of hair is all that is required for the non-invasive test procedure. The test scans and analyses the energy field contained in a lock of your hair, which contains an energetic pattern of the body, indicating issues which require attention.

This specialised system combines quantum physics, biofeedback and bioresonance technology, providing a leading system for body analysis.
This unique test is an energy therapy based on the principle that every material structure in the universe radiates a unique energy signature or frequency. As individuals we are in fact frequency receivers, transducers and transmitters. This unique technology, through frequency patterns, conducts a ‘conversation’ with the body and is able to identify, through the process of resonance, the body’s response. It seeks out hidden stressors or imbalances which are putting stress on the system.

Science now recognizes that we are electrical bodies; each organ, tissue, cell and emotion has its own unique energetic signature. Each person has their own unique fingerprint identity and similarly, our bodies each have their own energy patterns with different electromagnetic oscillations. Scientific research has proved that the human body's electrical fields can be measured - this advanced computerised system has the ability to use these natural frequencies to provide a complete wellness check.
