Body Toxicity and Mineral Test
This is a more extensive heavy metal test. This test uses a small hair sample that is sent away to a laboratory to measure your mineral and toxic element levels. This test is very accurate and often more accurate than a urine sample. A hair analysis is able to determine the stored levels of heavy metals in your system as opposed to a urine or blood sample that tests exposure to heavy metals which can fluctuate.
Common signs and symptoms of heavy metal toxicity include; behavioural changes, gastrointestinal disturbances, depression, irritability, hair loss, dry and scaly skin, skin problems, loss of appetite, migraines, allergies and hyperactivity. This test provides 2 levels:
- Level 1 (8 minerals and 4 toxic elements)
- Level 2 (16 minerals and 9 toxic elements)
Food Allergy/Inhalant Testing
The food intolerance test is a precise and accurate test using the ELISA method to identify any food and inhalant allergies. The body has a way of triggering an immune system response when it comes in contact with something that it does not like. This immune response triggers the release of antibodies, which puts strain on the body over a continued period of time and potentially cause more serious health concerns.
If you suffer from any of the following signs and symptoms you may have a food or inhalant allergy:
- Gastrointestinal (pain, nausea, cramping, vomiting, diarrhoea and inflammation)
- Respiratory (nasal congestion, sneezing, and difficulty breathing)
- Swelling of skin and mucous membranes
This test is completed by gathering blood samples from a few finger pricks. The test is then sent away to a laboratory for results and a comprehensive report will be sent back. Upon receipt of the report (usually 2-3 weeks after test is sent) we can discuss the best way to minimise exposure to any foods or inhalants that are triggering an immune system response and have you on the road to better health.
There are 2 options to choose from with this test:
- Option 1: The 96 General Foods tested (also a vegetarian option available)
- Option 2: 16 Common Inhalant Panel (grasses, indoor and moulds)
