Blood and hair are two different body compartments and as such have different normal values. In addition, just because a mineral is present in the blood is by no means reflective of what is getting into the tissues and being measured with a hair tissue analysis.
Firstly, the supplements recommended to you are specific to your chemistry as determined by your hair tissue analysis. The second significant reason is that when you supplement one mineral or vitamin you affect at least two others. For example if you take zinc you will adversely affect your copper status. Once you affect your copper status you affect your iron status. Your prescription takes all of this into account and ensures you are taking exactly what you need.
It varies. All programs are slightly different but in general you will be looking at 4-6 different supplements depending on your nutritional status. We find it is best to mentally view the supplements (pills, tablets etc) as "condensed food". They are not the same as medication and should never be looked at in the light that you are taking "too many".
Re-testing is one of the more brilliant aspects to this type of work. You would never take a medication like a blood thinner for too long without retesting to see if you have taken too much or too little of it. One of the things medicine is good at is measuring and testing and this is no different. We need to know what changes are occurring so as to avoid over supplementing you or even worse giving you the wrong supplements because your body's unique chemistry has changed.
The first re-test needs to be done after three months. Subsequent ones can be between 3-6 months depending on circumstances and progress.
The ONLY costs are the tests and any supplements that you might need. The initial test is $150AU and retests are $125AU. The cost of the supplements varies depending on your specific results. Short phone calls and emails are included in these fees, as is the one hour appointment to explain your results and the nutritional balancing program.
The short answer is politics. There were some negative shows and study's published in a couple of medical journals that have persuaded many medical professionals to discount it. The study's were flawed and biased (one submitted dog hair and didn't tell the lab so of course the values would have been off). The reality is the FDA in the USA highly recommends hair analysis as a way to detect and monitor toxic metals and it has since the 1970's. There are many GP's and health professionals around the world currently using hair tissue analysis.
This comes down to motivation and subconscious beliefs. Pain and pleasure are what motivates us and the reality is that most of us are not in enough pain to stay properly motivated and most of us can't envision the future pleasure vividly enough to use this as motivation either. In essence, we are comfortable enough where we are. The other reason is that you most likely have subconscious sabotaging behaviours that are deeply imbedded. These are critical to identify and replace. Both these issues are best worked with through a certified life and wellness coach. See our site for more information to access this service.
Perseverance is critical but so is fun and creativity. For those really resistant try crushing them up into the food itself.
Healing is not all fun all the time, in fact it is often very hard work. First you need to contact your health care provider (us) to discuss the issue and determine if it is a medical issue, a sensitivity or a healing reaction. Once the issue has been determined the corrective measures will be put in place. If it is a healing reaction consider the following. Let's say you have eliminated mercury from a storage site in your brain. As it goes through your blood stream and into your kidneys it will be touching everything. The presence of mercury will create symptoms as it is eliminated, as will most chemicals and toxins. Eventually most people come to look forward to these healing reactions as they know good things are happening. They never like them though!
Start with the hair tissue analysis. The reality is that with the exception of the supplements you can implement virtually all the other corrective measures with little to no extra cash outlay. You will benefit, although not as much as if you were on the full program.
While I am not looking to lecture as there are no doubt many individuals out there with legitimate money issues, I am always amazed at how people can find money when they "need" it. For example, if the car breaks down the $300-$600 + is found and spent instantly as they "need" the car. Often money issues come down to priority issues and how badly you value your health.
