Nutritional Balancing & Hair Mineral Analysis in Columbia, MO

Nutritional Balancing With Hair Mineral Analysis is a safe, easy, and non-invasive way to assess the levels of 21 or more minerals in the hair tissue. A mineral-analysis test can reveal body chemistry, stress-handling, oxidation rate, energy production, digestive issues, adrenal and thyroid activity, and the presence of toxins. Based on research and years of experience, Larry Wilson, MD, and the late Dr. Paul Eck were able to discover that tissue mineral analysis reveals health trends and can help prevent future medical problems.

This method of screening can be of great help to understand body chemistry. With the results, we can design an individualized diet and supplement program. By correcting tissues mineral levels and ratios with proper diet, supplemental nutrients, and lifestyle modifications, many physical and behavioral health conditions will improve.

All in all, by performing the test and installing proper programs in one’s life, we can relieve biochemical stresses and help restore and maintain optimum health.

My Holistic Dietary Approach

I have been using hair tissue mineral analysis as a primary tool in my practice for 17 years. A mineral balancing program can help with cardiovascular issues, blood sugar abnormalities, female/male hormone imbalances, fertility issues, PMS, perimenopausal issues, and acne & eczema.

In addition, it can help with chronic conditions or diseases such as:

  • Diabetes
  • Hypertension
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Coronary/peripheral artery disease
  • Degenerative diseases
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Autism
  • Arthritis
  • And many others!

Pregnancy and Pre-Pregnancy Nutrition

Everyone should be on a mineral balancing program; however, I highly recommend that women who are considering pregnancy get a hair mineral test and start a nutritional balancing program.

By doing this and maintaining an overall positive, healthy lifestyle, women build up their nutritional status and reduce toxins which would have otherwise been passed onto their developing babies.

Girls and women of all ages from pre-pubescent, post-pubescent and young adults would all greatly benefit from a mineral balancing program. Not only will they improve their own health, but also the health of the next generation by following the recommendations made from a hair mineral analysis.

Children’s Health & Nutrition

Since diet and nutrition play such a big role in the Autism Spectrum Disorder as well as ADHD or ADD, this program is very effective for children with these types of conditions. By performing a hair mineral analysis and identifying nutritional deficiencies and toxicities, we can determine the best way to help these children.
