What is the Elemental Hair Analysis – Health programme?
Elemental Hair Analysis – Health programme assesses the nutrition status of the organism basing on the quantity and ratio of elements in your hair. This modern diagnostic method tests the level of the most important elements in the human body – 24 bioelements and 5 toxic elements. Hair reflects the biochemical status of your organism. Unlike in blood tests, it can be precisely determined for the period of few weeks, not just few hours.
What elements do we check?
We mark 24 bioelements: calcium, sodium, potassium, phosphorus, zinc, magnesium, iron, copper, molybdenum, cobalt, chromium, lithium, strontium, nickel, manganese, selenium, vanadium, boron, bar, sulfur, silver, silicon, iodine, tin and 5 toxic elements: arsenic, mercury, aluminum, cadmium, lead.
Difference between Elemental Hair Analysis and blood testing?
Hair is an ideal material for testing, as its chemical content does not change, which makes storage and transport much easier.
Blood is the basic material for medical tests. Its tests are used for identifying diseases and tracing their progress. It is the most important tissue which maintains the continuity of life processes, so there are many buffer mechanisms which protect its best possible composition. Moreover, blood composition changes quickly, depending on the physiological condition and diet, so it is impossible to assess the nutrition status of the organism on the basis of blood mineral analysis.
Hair grows at a constant rate of 1 cm per month, and temporary health changes do not affect Elemental Hair Analysis results. Hair accumulates all the elements that are present in a human body and it reflects the nutrition status of a given person for the period of the last few weeks. In this way, temporary diversions of a physiological condition of the tested individual are leveled.
What are the Benefits?
Diet which lacks sufficient amounts of vitamins and microelements, stress, no physical exercise, fast life – all these influence the balance of elements in our organisms. In the long run, deficiencies or surpluses of elements lead to metabolic disorders, which in turn may contribute to chronic diseases. Such tendencies my be prevented with the use of a proper diet and supplementation of vitamins and minerals. You need to learn in detail about the needs of your organism in order to provide it with relevant nutrients and balance the ratio of elements.
Various kinds of dietary supplements, both natural and synthetic ones, are widely available nowadays, but not all of them are appropriate for everyone.
Using a standard dose of a given substance is not always a good solution. Its quantity should be adjusted to an individual and his/her needs. A lean physical worker with fast metabolism needs a different dose than an obese office clerk. Depending on the dose and time of the day, dietary supplements may prompt different reactions in different individuals, e.g. energize, sedate, strengthen, quieten etc.
Degree of absorption is also important here, as it is often low despite a high dose of a supplement. It can be improved by using synergistic substances, whose chemical composition facilitates absorption and distribution of the supplement inside the body.
All that key information is usually neglected. Although they provide detailed data and dosage, producers of medicines and supplements are not able to specify the way of administering them in combination with all other substances used by an individual. Then, the results of using a supplement are hardly perceptible, or even opposite to what is expected.
That is why it is so important to become familiar with your own organism and its individual needs, and combine this wisdom with knowledge about food and nutrition.
All these significant factors are taken into consideration when designing an individual supplementation programme based on Elemental Hair Analysis – Health programme. The recommended individual supplementation programme specifies a detailed dose, time of the day for using it, and the time for using vitamins, minerals and plant preparations, in other words dietary supplements.
Who is it for?
Elemental Hair Analysis – Health programme is especially recommended to individuals who have problems with maintaining mental and physical fitness, in particular to those with low immunity. Elemental Hair Analysis – Health programme is used in preventive medicine for adults and children (from 3 years old), as well as in supporting medical treatment and recovery. It is most often performed in the cases of gastrological, hormonal, neurological, dermatological, cardiologic and bone and joint disorders.
Elemental Hair Analysis – Health programme is very effective in supporting treatment of various kinds of disorders: psycho-emotional (e.g. depression, bad response to stress), neurological (e.g. MS, Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy, autism), dermatological (e.g. psoriasis, albinism, hair loss, acne), cardiologic (e.g. atherosclerosis, heart attack), and diseases of bones and joints (e.g. RA, osteoporosis).
Elemental Hair Analysis – Health programme is recommended to people who are exposed to increased effort (physical or mental work, amateur sports), and those with significant physical effort (e.g. professional sports).
Elemental Hair Analysis – Health programme helps level the issues related to bad absorption and excretion (gastrological disorders), thanks to which proper nutrition and natural detoxication of the body is possible.
The analysis will show the possibility of negative influence of toxic elements on metabolism, and the supplementation programme will help to get rid of them.
By complying with supplementation and dietary recommendations included in the analysis report, you get a strong chance to win with chronic fatigue and weakness and obesity.
Elemental Hair Analysis – Health programme is a good choice for those who want to raise their awareness related to health care, disease prevention, and to support their treatment or recovery.
What do you receive?
A report with the results of Elemental Hair Analysis – Health programme consists of about 36 – 52 pages for an adult person, and apart from diagrams and ratios of tested elements, it includes: metabolic type description, supplementation programme, metabolic diet.
Metabolic type description
On the basis of the element ratio, we are able to determine your biological nature and its dominant qualities. Thus, you will find out how your body functions and understand its processes.
Learn if the energetic flow in your organism is fast or slow, if you are “sympathetic dominant” or “parasympathetic dominant”; if your digestion is fast or slow, and find out how quickly your organism gets older. Moreover, you will see how effective your thyroid and cortex of your adrenal glands is, how your organism copes with stress and whether it is anabolic or catabolic processes that are dominant.
You will also check your pH balance and find out if you have residues of lactic or uric acid.
Learn about your health-related tendencies and find out what might happen in the next few years if you do not take the preventive measures recommended in the analysis results.
The supplementation programme included a chart with vitamins and microelements selected for you, as well as the doses and times of application.
The supplementation programme consists of two stages:
- The first stage lasts three months and it is focused on nutrition. Its task is to balance the surpluses and deficiencies of elements and restoring the individual dynamic homeostasis.
- The second stage lasts six months and its aim is prevention. It is to stabilize the optimum state of mineral nutrition achieved in the previous stage. If health and mood have significantly improved, the second stage may be prolonged and last even two years.
The supplemention programme is comprehensive. This means that only applying the whole programme (all the recommended supplements at specified times of day) will bring positive results.
Remember that supplements do not cure, but nourish, and doctor’s consultation is necessary in case of any pathological condition.
Metabolic diet is optimal for your metabolic type and the needs of your organism. It includes a chart with a seven-day menu, energetic value of each meal provided, as well as recipes.
This diet is meant to show you the direction which you need to take in order to achieve the best possible results and support the supplementation programme.
Sometimes, it may turn out that the recommended diet is different from the one you use (for instance, a fervent meat eater may be recommended a diet in which vegetables dominate), or it includes elements which you do not like (e.g. fish or vegetables). It happens because our natural and healthiest tastes have faded along with the development of food technology. Nowadays, almost no one can recognize and eat what their organisms really need (e.g. if you need polyunsaturated fatty acids, you should regularly eat fatty fish).
The analysis results will also determine your energetic needs and physical activity recommendations depending on your lifestyle.
