Did you know that coloring your hair is one of the activities that can expose you to toxic elements?
The Hair Elements Analysis can confirm if you have been exposed, and to which toxins. Take this test to find out.

Principal

Doctor’s Data, Inc., DDI (llinois, USA)

Description

A valuable and inexpensive screen for physiological excess, deficiency or maldistribution of elements. It should not be considered a stand-alone diagnostic test for essential element function, and should be used in conjunction with patient symptoms and other laboratory tests

Indications

Toxic Element Exposure, Excessive Fish Consumption, Alopecia, Depression, Fatigue, Malabsorption, Hypertension, Impaired Glucose Tolerance, Kidney Function, Parkinson’s-like Symptoms, Sexual Impotence or Decreased Testosterone Production, Vision Problems

Specimen

0.25 gram of hair

Preparation

The test requires no special diet and you do not need to discontinue taking medications or dietary supplements unless otherwise instructed by your physician. Never discontinue prescription medications without first consulting your physician. Collect the hair specimen according to the directions on the scale. Hair that has been permed, dyed, bleached, or otherwise chemically treated is vulnerable to contamination and is not recommended for analysis. Do not mix head hair with pubic hair.

Methodology

Inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS)

TOXIC ELEMENTS ARE MORE CONCENTRATED IN HAIR

Why is hair important in detecting toxins? As protein is synthesized in the hair follicle, elements are incorporated permanently into the hair. Scalp hair is also easy to sample, and because it grows an average of one to two cm per month, it contains a “temporal record” of element metabolism and exposure to toxic elements.

The levels of elements like magnesium, chromium, zinc, copper, and selenium in hair are correlated with levels in organs and other tissues.

Toxic elements maybe 200 to 300 times more highly concentrated in hair than in blood or urine. Therefore, hair is the tissue of choice for detection of recent exposure to elements such as arsenic, aluminum, cadmium, lead, antimony, and mercury.

THERE’S MORE TO HAIR THAN JUST BEING YOUR CROWNING GLORY

The Hair Elements analysis is able to give significant findings on recent and ongoing exposure to potentially toxic metals. This non-invasive screening test requires only 0.25 gram of hair.

Doctor’s Data offers two kinds of profiles: a Hair Elements profile with essential and toxic elements, and a Hair Toxic Element Exposure profile containing an expanded lineup of toxic metals.
