The Benefits of a Hair Analysis
By Dr. Janet Starr Hull, PhD., CN
Have you ever been to a medical doctor with persistent health symptoms, but the doctor can't see anything wrong and all the expensive lab tests merely determine nothing's there?
YOU know something's wrong though, because you are on the receiving end of the pounding headaches, the uncontrollable twitches in your arms and legs followed by shooting pains. YOU are the one who cannot get a good night's sleep. YOU know you are experiencing heart palpitations, dizziness, and blurred vision. And YOU are tired of STRESS as the blame while your doctor suggests you see a psychotherapist.
Well, your body can tell you what traditional medicine cannot"but you have to pay attention to what it's trying to translate using those disturbing health symptoms. Two ways to understand your body's "cries for help are to remove ALL foreign, man-made food chemicals from your diet, clean-up your outside environment, and get a hair analysis to determine what's going on inside of you.
The protein in your hair holds the composition of your body's tissues for a permanent period of time. This is why hair testing is used in forensic medicine. By analyzing toxin and nutrient levels using a hair analysis, a trained nutritionist can typically tell what toxins have accumulated in your body and what vitamins and minerals are depleted (in turn, causing an imbalance in body function). The hair analysis can clearly spell out what your body is trying to tell you using its symptomatic warning signs such as those nasty migraine headaches.
Humans are exposed to over 14,000 food chemicals daily. And, this doesn't take into account the abundant environmental toxins we are exposed to. The hair analysis is an excellent tool to identify specifically which toxins are inside your body and what vitamins and minerals they may have depleted.
As I discovered through my own disease recovery from an inaccurate diagnosis of "Graves' Disease, I couldn't fight what I couldn't see. It wasn't probable I would cure my disease if no one knew the cause, and unfortunately my internist didn't have a clue as to what caused my thyroid symptoms. The hair analysis was the "road map" I used to see what was going on inside of my body, and it helped me save my thyroid gland. I cured my "incurable disease in thirty days.
In most cases, the hair analysis can mark the root cause(s) of illness. But, the key to a good hair analysis is in the interpretation - a lost art amid traditional medicine, yet a critical step in disease recovery.
