STOP Taking The Wrong Vitamins! - It's Best To Test, Before You Buy..Vitamins!
HAIR TISSUE MINERAL ANALYSIS (HTMA) (16 Minerals; 36 Mineral Ratios) and Heavy Metals (5 Metals; 14 Metal Ratios)
MOST FREQUENT SYMPTOMS AND HEALTH CHALLENGES THAT RESULT FROM ABNORMAL HAIR TISSUE MINERAL VALUES
Introduction: Minerals are the messengers of the human body. Zinc, for example, is required for the proper function of over 69 enzymes in the human body, and Male hormone function, especially, relies on zinc sufficiency. The TMA tests for deficiencies and excesses in all essential minerals, calcium, sodium, magnesium, potassium, selenium, chromium, zinc, iron, phosphorus, etc.
Mineral imbalances adverse affect:
Blood Sugar Balance,
Vitality - the innate healing system, a.k.a. the automotic nervous system,
Oxidation - fast or slow; oxidation provides insights into the function of the metabolism.
Protein, identifies protein deficiency, protein metabolism and protein usage, i.e., whether the cells can even use the protein once it is transported to the cells.
Anabolic, which means the body has the ability to regenerate cells, heal tissue, and repair itself.
Catabolism,, which means cellular degeneration, the body is breaking down, exiting the world.
and the TMA also identifies Toxic and Heavy Metals, such as Mercury, Aluminum, Arsenic, Lead, etc.
Again, because minerals are required to transport hormones, insulin and other substances from their organs/glands to the cells, a comprehensive clinical nutrition analysis of your biochemistry requires a Tissue Mineral Hair Analysis along with any other test, whether it is saliva, urine, stool, or blood..
Mineral Deficiencies also perpetuates Eating Disorders, like anorexia and bulimia.
A TYPICAL OCCURRENCE TODAY REGARDING....
THYROID DYSFUNCTION (HYPO OR HYPER-THYROID)
Anyone taking, for example, thyroid hormone drug therapy, based on abnormal medical thyroid hormone blood chemistry values alone, may cause damage to their thyroid, when the true cause of hypo- or hyper-thyroid hormone imbalance in the blood is Mineral deficiencies or excesses.
In other words, the thyroid glands are functioning normally and producing thyroid hormones, but the minerals are not transporting them to the cells, so the hormones are sent to the blood, which will then transport the hormones to the liver, so the liver can change the unused hormones to a water-soluble substance that can then be eliminated from the body.
This metabolic process occurs whether it is hormones are from glands of the thyroid, adrenals, female/male, etc., or the other endocrine substances, such as insulin from the pancreas. Thus, even in the case of diabetes, the blood sugar imbalance may not be from a lack of insulin production from the pancreas, but the lack of the minerals to transport the insulin. Therefore, a Tissue Mineral Hair Analysis is required for mineral evaluation along with any other cellular test (saliva, urine or stool) and blood testing.
This applies to all hormones (thyroids, adrenals, male/female, pituitary, hypothalmus, thymus...)

Calcium Sufficiency is a value of 40 (which is Homeostasis)
On the HTMA (Page 1) the Calcium Value of 313 in the Previous Text Box was successfully reduce to 155 in just 3 months, which is the first retesting of the initial HTMA to determine how much progress a client's body can make in a 3-month period. Decreasing a value of 313 to 155 in 3-months demonstrates how effective Dr. Smith's therapeutic whole food supplement program is for "detoxifying" excessive minerals. Since the goal is a Value of 40 for Homeostasis, with an acceptable Value in the Range of 28-79 , the next retest is now calculated four months, considering that the pace of reduction has moved approximately 40 points per month.
Excess Calcium (Value over 79) is observed in 99% of all new clients. The primary cause is the daily intake of synthetic and/or isolated Calcium or extreme ongoing stress. This elevation is an example of what can happen when people take vitamins and minerals without first being tested. Note: Because minerals have a synergistic, inter-relationship with each other, when one mineral is elevated or deficient, regardless of the cause, it will have a chain reaction throughout all mineral levels, causing some to become deficient and others become excessive, whereas previously they were sufficient.
The human body cannot heal and function healthifully without mineral balance. Because minerals are the transporters of hormones, insulin and other substances (chemistries) in the body, a Tissue Mineral Hair Analysis is required testing with all other biochemical tests. In other words, whether the other test is blood, urine, saliva and/or stool, testing the hair is also required for a complete analysis of the other test. For example, without having the hair tested when having blood drawn, you would not know if the Glucose in the blood is being transported from the blood to the cells. If the hair is not tested with saliva hormone tests, you would not know if those hormones are being transported to the cells. When the cells do not receive the hormones produced by the glands (or whatever the cells need), they cannot function and thus produce the same symptoms as if the hormone gland itself was dysfunctioning. This can cause a physician to think the problem is in the glands when it is really due to mineral imbalance. . Then when the physician prescribes drugs, when the dysfunction is caused by mineral imbalance, this leads to destroying the healthy gland(s).
MINERALS ARE REQUIRED TO TRANSPORT HORMONES
TO THE CELLS
Therefore, a comprehensive clinical nutrition analysis of Hormone Function and/or Bone health requires a Tissue Mineral (Hair) Analysis, PLUS, the Saliva Hormone or the Bone Resorption Urine Tests, respectively.
HORMONE IMBALANCE MAY BE CAUSED FROM:
A dysfunctional gland not producing sufficient Adrenal, Thyroid, Female or Male Hormones,
Mineral Deficiencies or Excesses,
Dysfunction in Metabolism,
Toxicity or Trauma
or a Combination of any one or more of the above.
Therefore, blood chemistry hormone tests alone is insufficient to evaluate the thyroid, female/male or any hormone. Now read "A Typical Occurrence Today Regarding "Thyroid Dysfunction" to the right, which applies to any hormone.
The human body cannot heal and function healthifully without mineral balance.
