The Calcium/ Magnesium ratio on a hair mineral analysis can yield a lot of extremely valuable information. It is one of the most important ratios on a hair mineral chart. We often call this the carbohydrate ratio as it is great at showing carbohydrate tolerance.
When the Calcium/Magnesium Ratio is too high it is indicative of a diet with too many sugars and carbohydrates. It is a good idea to reduce these as your body currently is not handling them well.
A low Calcium/Magnesium ratio can mean a few different things. You can see some of them below.
1. A low Calcium/Magnesium Ratio is related to blood sugar issues.
2. Supplementing Magnesium without balancing out Calcium can create a low Ca/Mg ratio.
3. Living in “a tizzy”. Other words for this are panicky, confused, disoriented, “freaked out”, or even somewhat hysterical. There is often intense rage or acute anger.
3. Not coping well due to not enough buffer elements. To the person with a Ca/Mg less than about 4, life does not make sense. There is not enough of the buffer or damper element, calcium, to handle one’s life situation in the world.
4. A need to move on. Like the high Calcium/Magnesium ratio, there is a need to move on. Only with the low calcium/magnesium ratio, the situation or lifestyle factor has become so problematic, annoying or harmful, that it can lead to an attitude of wanting to die. This means that a low Calcium/Magnesium ratio is perhaps more of a problem than a high Calcium/Magnesium ratio. It is definitely more acute, in this regard.
A lifestyle stress pattern means that there is something going on in a persons external life that is not working out well for them. Often this is a job that they are working at but in reality it is not good for them, it can also be a relationship or where you life.
The Sodium/ Potassium ratio is arguably the most important ratio on a hair mineral analysis chart. It is the vitality ratio. It could also be called the electrical ratio and internal ratio.
It can help measure many things including.
Adrenal strength- Low Na/K= Low Adrenal Strength. High Na/K= Showing Increased Adrenal Strength.
Electrical Potential of cells. Low Na/K= A discharging of electrical potential. A High Na/K= Higher electrical charging or potential of cells.
Yin & Yang indicator. Low Na/K= More Yin. High Na/K= More Yang.
A movement indicator. Low Na/K= Slowing of movement forward, exhaustion, and reversal of movement. High Na/K= Forward momentum, forward-thinking, more future-orientated.
And many more!
A balanced Na/K in general means you are balanced in the indicators above.
Sodium and potassium are mainly regulated by the adrenal hormone's aldosterone and cortisol. A high
Sodium/ Potassium ratio on a hair analysis is an indicator of a relatively greater secretion of aldosterone (sodium) in relation to cortisol (potassium). The adrenal glands, in general, are overworking, it is preferred to see a test with a high Na/K ratio than low. It is a sign of some adrenal strength.
You have a healthy Sodium/Potassium Ratio.
You are like to have some of the symptoms related to a high Na/K ratio like inflammation, anger and acute stress.
With a low Na/K ratio. You may experience some symptoms of a low Na/K ratio like fatigue, blood sugar imbalance, kidney stress, liver stress, cardiovascular stress, and emotional symptoms like frustration, resentment and hostility
The calcium/potassium ratio is one of the very important ratios on a hair mineral analysis. Hair must not be washed at the laboratory at all for accurate mineral readings.
Thyroid glandular activity lowers calcium in the body. This is well known in medicine. Potassium sensitizes the tissues to thyroid hormone.
A ratio greater than 4:1 indicates a reduced thyroid effect and is part of the criteria for slow oxidation. A ratio less than 4:1 is an indicator for excessive thyroid effect and is part of the criteria for fast oxidation.
An elevated Calcium/ Potassium ratio is an indicator of reduced thyroid function.
A low Calcium/ Potassium ratio is an indicator of an excessive thyroid function.
The oxidation rate in simple terms means how quickly your body burns food, or how fast it converts food into energy. It is similar to metabolism. There are three types of oxidation rate. Slow, fast, and mixed. Extreme slow and extreme fast is not a healthy metabolism to be in. Most adults should be slow oxidizers, and most babies are fast. A healthy oxidation rate is mild slow, or mild fast. One of the biggest aims of the Nutritional Balancing Program is to balance out the oxidation rate. By doing so, energy is released consistently over a long period which means the person is much more stable, healthier and happier.
Mild slow oxidation is a good oxidation rate you may experience some mild symptoms of slow oxidation below.
Symptoms. Those with a slow oxidation rate tend to be tired, apathetic, depressed, and even despairing and suicidal if their oxidation rate is very slow. Some are emotional as their copper level rises. Some are also anxious, although fatigue and depression are more common. Many use stimulant foods, drugs, or other methods to keep going.
Symptoms: Those with a slow oxidation rate tend to be tired, apathetic, depressed, and even despairing and suicidal if their oxidation rate is very slow. Some are emotional as their copper level rises. Some are also anxious, although fatigue and depression are more common. Many use stimulant foods, drugs, or other methods to keep going.
It is very likely you are experiencing symptoms of slow oxidation listed below.
Mild fast oxidation is not a bad oxidation; a good oxidation type is mild slow or mild fast. However, adults are usually in slow oxidation, so it may be an indicator of some slight stress; you may have mild symptoms of fast oxidation written below.
Symptoms: Those with a fast oxidation rate tend to be anxious, irritable, in a hurry, and aggressive if their oxidation rate is very fast. They are usually somewhat emotional, short-tempered, and high-strung. They easily become anxious and wound up, and may need sedative drugs to slow down.
Symptoms. Those with a fast oxidation rate tend to be anxious, irritable, in a hurry, and aggressive if their oxidation rate is very fast. They are usually somewhat emotional, short-tempered, and high-strung. They easily become anxious and wound up, and may need sedative drugs to slow down.
You have symptoms of both slow and fast oxidation, it is not necessarily a "bad" oxidation rate but we would prefer either mild slow oxidation or mild fast oxidation
Usually a fast death pattern. This is what I call a fast death pattern. It is associated with a tendency for a heart attack, in particular, or perhaps a vascular accident such as a stroke.
It is also associated with arteriosclerosis, angina, cardiac arrythmias, and perhaps malignancy and diabetes.
Adrenal burnout syndrome is underactivity of the adrenal glands. There is depletion of nutrients required for adrenal activity. Toxic metals replace some of these nutrients, so that just taking supplements is not always effective in reversing the condition.
Calcium toxicity symptoms may include fatigue, depression, defensiveness,
muscle weakness, pain, arteriosclerosis, arthritis, kidney stones and gallstones. Others are bone spurs,
rigidity, slow metabolism, constipation, social withdrawal and spondylitis (rigidity and inflammation of the
On an initial hair test, a calcium shell usually indicates psychological withdrawal, the presence of trauma, and perhaps overwhelming stress, inability to handle stress well, or a very sensitive body. Often it is accompanied by a very slow oxidation rate.
Copper toxicity is a major problem for most people today. Unfortunately, it is not too known or understood. Copper toxicity can cause a plethora of symptoms.
People with copper toxicity often experience many symptoms like fatigue, PMS, skin problems, insomnia, bi-polar, schizophrenia, memory loss, racing mind, fear, anger, fungal infections, osteoporosis and many many more
Copper on a hair analysis is often not an accurate measurement of copper load/toxicity. However, we know over 30 indicators of hidden copper toxicity.
Four lows on an initial hair test. This indicates a collapse and exhaustion. It is often a chronic pattern that can last for years if not corrected.
Similar to copper toxicity there are quite a few indicators on a hair mineral analysis test that indicates a person is in adrenal burnout.
The three lows pattern may also be named overwhelming stress, skidding, one foot in the tunnel, or almost four lows. It is a common pattern.
Sympathetic dominance/ Pusher Pattern indicates a person who is over-utilizing his or her sympathetic nervous system. In simple terms, the person is pushing himself or herself, or worrying too much.
The pattern indicates what may be called a secondary alarm reaction. Extraordinary stress of some kind is causing a partially effective stress response in a slow oxidizer. It is not unlike a second wind that runners may experience after they have run part of the way through a race.
Low zinc is associated with emotional ups and downs, mood swings, cadmium toxicity, copper
toxicity and excessive emotionalism. In babies and children, it is associated with delayed development
syndromes, and delayed growth and possibly other developmental problems.
Zinc is also related to Copper. In general a low zinc = high copper (if your copper level is low look at hidden copper indicators). Zinc is important to help balance out copper. Many people are malnourished in Zinc today from busy lifestyles, poor nutrition with a lack of high quality zinc in the diet.
Aluminum is called the soft in the head mineral because it is associated with memory loss and dementia. Aluminum is a soft metal and a dangerous one. It is very common in the environment, and almost everyone shows some aluminum toxicity on their hair tests.
Arsenic is a common toxic metal. Many people have an excessive amount of arsenic in their bodies. It is somewhat difficult to detect and often causes vague symptoms such as weakness, fatigue and malaise. It also takes away a person’s will to resist. For this reason, it is called the slave mineral.
We call cadmium the macho mineral, and it is one of the violent elements. Cadmium toughens the tissues and hardens the arteries.
Lead is called the horror mineral because it is associated with violence, lowered IQ, attention deficit disorder, hyperactivity, and many other neurological problems. Lead is a widely distributed toxic metal due to its many uses in industry.
This is called the depression and suicide mineral, as it is associated with these feelings and symptoms.
Mercury may be called the mad hatters mineral. People who made raccoon skin hats in the mid 1800s in America and Europe developed mercury toxicity after a few years from rubbing mercury on felt to soften it. Many became mentally and emotionally deranged after a few years of working in the hat factories.
