New Life Spa offers 2 Different Hair Analysis Tests....
#1 Hair MINERAL & HEAVY METAL Test by Analytical Labs
Balancing Body Chemistry Through Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis!
"As one of the most respected and experienced leaders in the hair tissue mineral analysis field, Analytical Research Labs, Inc. (ARL) has been setting the professional standards that have been emulated for decades by national and international hair testing and interpretation laboratories. ARL, which pioneered the field of hair tissue mineral analysis interpretation, has earned the respect and endorsement of health care professionals throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, Europe and Asia.
Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA)
Providing a mineral blueprint of one's biochemistry, a hair tissue mineral analysis can provide pertinent information about one's metabolic rate, energy levels, sugar and carbohydrate tolerance, stage of stress, immune system and glandular activity.
A hair tissue mineral analysis performed by Analytical Research Labs, Inc., is a screening test for the level of 20 minerals and toxic metals in a sample of hair. It is a tissue mineral biopsy that is non-invasive, relatively inexpensive and extremely accurate. Our laboratory uses only the most advanced and sophisticated instrumentation available today, the Perkin Elmer ICP-MS nexION 2000B Mass Spectrometer to assess mineral levels in parts per million or parts per billion.
A hair tissue mineral analysis is considered a standard test used around the world for the biological monitoring of trace elements and toxic metals in humans and animals species. The same technology is used for soil testing and testing of rock samples to detect mineral levels.
Hair, like all other body tissues, contains minerals that are deposited as the hair grows. Although the hair is dead, the minerals remain as the hair continues to grow out. A sample of hair cut close to the scalp provides information about the mineral activity in the hair that took place over the past three to four months, depending on the rate of hair growth.
Why is Our Hair Analysis Unique?
Several factors combine to make our hair tissue mineral analysis the best in the industry!
We are one of only two laboratories that do not wash the hair at the laboratory. Washing hair samples at the laboratory has been shown to erratically wash out the water-soluble elements. This creates much less accurate results. In a 2001 study in the Journal of the AMA (Seidel, S. et al., Assessment of Commercial Laboratories Performing Hair Mineral Analysis, JAMA, 285(1) Jan 3:67-72.) the two laboratories that did not wash the hair, of which we were one, showed superb reliability.
We use technologically advanced testing instruments, including the Perkin Elmer Elan 9000 ICP Mass Spectrometer.
We are proud of our laboratory quality control procedures. These include known controls which are tested at the beginning, middle and end of every batch of hair samples to insure the accuracy of the results.
We automatically retest any reading that is out of a normally expected range, provided sufficient hair is available for a second sample.
Test results are printed on an easy-to-read graph, unlike many of the other laboratories. This is a great benefit for both practitioners and their clients as well. The printed graph includes the mineral results, major mineral ratios and the oxidation type."
We offer the only complete individualized test interpretation by the method developed by the late Dr. Paul C. Eck, our founder. This 15-20 page report is unique as it includes information related to one's metabolic rate, energy levels, sugar and carbohydrate tolerance, immune system, autonomic balance, glandular activity and metabolic trends, a personal dietary supplement program, basic diet recommendations and other information that can be inferred from the test results.
We offer the only personalized transition dietary plan based entirely upon the results of one's hair tissue mineral analysis. This 25 page report includes three transition diets, menu plans and a wealth of information covering food preparation, eating habits, changing one's habits, cooking, shopping and other valuable information.
#2 SENSITIVITY / INTOLERANCE Hair Test by Direct Med Solutions
SAFE, SIMPLE AND NON-INVASIVE HAIR TESTING
We offer the most comprehensive hair tests available using the latest bio-technology resonance technology. Our lab scans only 4-5 strands of your hair which results in detailed reporting of intolerances.
We will email the reports to you within just 10 working days from the date your hair is received to our office. Your reports will include all items which have shown an intolerance.
Food and Environmental Intolerance Test
Your hair sample is tested against 750 different food and non-food items.
Nutrition Deficiency Test
Our test identifies key nutrients potentially missing from your diet. We can currently identify up to 80 nutrients.
Heavy Metals Test
Your hair sample is tested against 24 unique metals. Metals can be ingested or absorbed by the body and are typically overseen as potential catalysts for intolerance.
WE TEST HAIR. IT'S SAFE, SIMPLE AND RELIABLE.
Unlike blood and urine testing – where the results can be affected by your last meal, stress or other factors, hair testing is not affected by these things and can therefore store information for longer periods of time. This information is used for intolerance testing for foods, non-food, metal, minerals and deficiencies. Then are able to give you a detailed report that creates a broad picture of your intolerance. The hair testing method for intolerance is considered excellent for several reasons, some include:
*Non-invasive – we only require a small sample of hair.
*Test more items – blood tests can usually only test for a small selection of items, whereas we can test against 750 different items.
*Fast results – testing is completed quickly and efficiently as hair testing is a much faster process than blood testing.
*Stable sample – once a blood or urine sample have been taken, they begin to deteriorate; hair does not.
*Hair stores information within it and is not affected by outside contaminants. Hair coloring and/or dyes will not have any effect on your test.
*Cost effective – due to all of these reasons, hair testing is less expensive than blood testing and urine testing.
FOOD AND NON-FOODS, MINERALS, NUTRITIONAL AND METALS (TOXICITY)
Differences Between Allergies and Intolerances
Allergies target the body's immune system and produce a more severe reaction that could be life-threatening. In most cases, allergies are hereditary and are a lifelong condition.
An intolerance is the body's inability to digest an item properly, whether that is a food intolerance or a non-food (environmental) intolerance. In most cases, you may be able to correct your intolerance by adjusting your diet, environment and lifestyle. You can work with your intolerances to reduce and possibly eliminate them.
An intolerance can occur due to a number of reasons, the two most common are:
1) The body is lacking the necessary digestive enzyme(s) for the food item and cannot properly digest the item or efficiently take nutrients from it.
2) Many symptoms are the result of a sensitivity to a particular item. A sensitivity can occur from over-consumption or overexposure to an item.
FOOD SENSITIVITY AND INTOLERANCE SYMPTOMS
Food sensitivities, also known as ‘an intolerance’ can be a pain, literally, and are much more common than you think. They are even more common than a food allergy. It is easy to dismiss the symptoms as something else because the onset of symptoms is usually slower, and may be delayed by several hours after eating certain foods.
Two people may be sensitive to the same food but experience different symptoms. People can usually tolerate a reasonable amount of the food that they are sensitive to, but if they eat too much they will get symptoms because their body cannot tolerate certain amounts. Food sensitivities can even trigger the onset of a chronic illness or make symptoms worse, which is why it is important to test your intolerance and sensitivities.
After identifying the foods that you are sensitive to, it is important to eliminate these foods from your diet for at least a month before you start introducing it back into your diet. We would advise that you slowly re-introduce the food back into your diet so that you can gauge how much of the food your body can tolerate before the symptoms kick in.
Below are seven unsuspecting and very surprising signs that you may have a sensitivity:
1. Fatigue - Common sources: dairy, soy, corn, gluten
2. Joint Pain and Muscle Aches - Common sources: soy, gluten, dairy, eggs, corn, yeast, sugar, peanuts
3. Headaches - Common sources: processed foods, cured meats
4. Weight Gain - Common sources: refined carbs, added sugars, highly processed meats
5. Mood Swings - Common sources: wheat, dairy, fruit
6 & 7. Anxiety and Dizziness - Common sources: fermented foods (wine, aged cheese, cured meats)
Do you experience any of these symptoms up to 48 hours after consumption? Order your test today!
