What is IgG Food Intolerance Testing
Even with diligent meal plans, food elimination diets and detoxing, it can feel like a needle in a hay stack to find out why our bodies are still showing symptoms of food intolerance/sensitivities. This is because of a delayed response which occurs several hours or days after a food is consumed. The delay in the appearance of symptoms, makes it difficult to determine which foods could be considered as the trigger of the health problem. Underlying food allergies/sensitivities are the root cause to many of health concerns including gastrointestinal issues, skin issues, depression and anxiety, hypertension, headaches and migraines, weight issues, autoimmune conditions and more. IgG Food Intolerance Testing can identify over 200 foods that could potentially be the cause of the symptoms in a safe and reliable way.

What is Hair Mineral Analysis Testing
Hair Mineral Analysis is screening test to measure the levels of up to 60 essential minerals and toxic metals. With correct testing and interpretation, one can construct a comprehensive metabolic profile of the human body.
It is easy to sample, easily preserved and transported, represents a soft tissue of the body, and is a storage and eliminative tissue. As hair grows it forms a permanent record of the body’s nutritional deficiencies or excesses.
This information, along with dietary and nutritional evaluations, will provide the basis for a nutritional balancing program to establish and maintain optimal levels of wellness. By correcting tissue mineral levels and ratios with proper diet, supplementary nutrients and lifestyle modifications, many physical and behavioral health conditions can be prevented or reversed.
Minerals screened include electrolytes – calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium and phosphorus and trace minerals – copper, manganese, chromium, selenium, iron, molybdenum, lithium, cobalt,and zinc.
Toxic metal screening includes lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic, nickel, and aluminum.
