Introductions

This section of the reports introduce the HTMA report. Information on whether the report is an initial or retest report is shown. With explanations of each

Positive patterns

A message about positive patterns or "joy" patterns. These patterns are positive patterns on a HTMA and show good progress on reports. These show mainly on retest reports.

Calcium/Magnesium ratio

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. There is a lot of information one can gather from the Calcium/Magnesium ratio such as cell solubility, bowel function, glandular interaction, and more. However, one of the most important points we can assess from the ratio is the current level of sugar and carbohydrate tolerance the individual can handle. This is accurate up to a ratio of about 13:5. Above a ratio of 13:5 we have found that this is more of an indicator of lifestyle stress.

In this section we can assess

healthy Calcium/ Magnesium Ratio (Ca/Mg)
An elevated Calcium/ Magnesium Ratio (Ca/Mg)
Low Calcium/ Magnesium Ratio (Ca/Mg)
Improved Calcium/ Magnesium ratio (Ca/Mg) – Better sugar metabolism/ diet improvements
Improved Calcium/ Magnesium ratio (Ca/Mg) – and in a range between 5+9.5

Calcium/Potassium ratio

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. Dr. Paul Eck called this ratio the thyroid ratio. He used it to help determine the oxidation rate. Thyroid glandular activity lowers calcium in the body. This is well known in medicine. Potassium sensitizes the tissues to thyroid hormone. A Hair Mineral Analysis is not an indicator of a person's thyroid output. Rather it measures the thyroid hormone's effect on the cells. It can show how much thyroid hormone has managed to get into cells or how little.

In this section we can assess

Slightly elevated Calcium/ Potassium (Ca/K) ratio An elevated Calcium/ Potassium (Ca/K) ratio
Slightly low Calcium/ Potassium (Ca/K) ratio
Low Calcium/ Potassium (Ca/K) ratio
Previously underactive thyroid effect has sped up
Previously underactive thyroid effect has slowed down further
Previously over active thyroid effect has slowed down and therefore improved
Previously overactive thyroid function effect has sped up
Balanced Na/K

Sodium/Potassium ratio

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.
A movement indicator. Low Na/K= Slowing of movement forward, exhaustion, and reversal of movement. High Na/K= Forward momentum, forward-thinking, more future-oriented.
An emotional indicator. Low Na/K= Feeling stuck in the past, less optimistic, stuck in a hole. High Na/K= Future orientated, more optimistic, feeling more elated.

Sodium/Magnesium ratio

The Sodium/Magnesium (Na/Mg) is said to be the adrenal ratio. This is because the sodium level is related to adrenal gland output.
As a result the higher the sodium level the higher the aldosterone level because aldosterone regulates retention of sodium in the body.
However it is important to assess the whole HTMA chart to assertain energy and adrenal output, this is because the sodium level can be propped up by certain toxins, including but not limited to cadmium, mercury, copper, iron and nickel. As a result the adrenal ratio may appear as if the adrenal glands and energy is high, however underneath the adrenal output is low because the sodium mineral has been pushed up or is temporarily showing higher because of a toxin dump.

Below is a list of all of the HTMA patterns we currently analyze on the app. Please note under most patterns is a read more button which allows the reader to look at much more information. Many of these patterns only show up on the main report not the free one.

Welcome to your initial hair mineral analysis report

In this report, you will find a detailed review of the significant hair analysis patterns on your mineral analysis chart.

Hair Analysis is a powerful method of viewing your mineral makeup in the present. What many people are unaware of is that your cells are the powerhouses of the body. Blood, on the other hand, is a buffered system, meaning that the body has to keep it in balance as much as possible. Therefore, when toxins accumulate, the body tends to remove these quickly from the blood and shunt them into the cells. As a result, by analyzing the cells we are able to not only see the health of the cells, but we can get a good understanding of the toxic metal build up in the body that is often challenging to ascertain from other testing methods.

However, there’s more. Not only can we view toxic metal accumulation, but we can also see a plethora of other very interesting and important patterns that can aid you in understanding the best course of action for your health

We can study things like the metabolic rate, blood sugar and carbohydrate imbalances, energy production, the health of the adrenal and thyroid glands, and many more. We can also see things like unhealthy personality tendencies, lifestyle imbalances, a tendency to overthink, whether someone is in a chronic fight or flight response, and more. In-fact, the more we learn about the mineral makeup of the body, the more patterns we discover.

We have discovered 100’s of Hair Analysis Patterns assessing the degree of health on the physical, mental, emotional, lifestyle and more.

Please read this report carefully, and we wish you well on your journey to health and happiness.



RETEST HTMA

The best way to look at retests is to see them as ‘the next step.’ Improvements come in many shapes and sizes, and even tiny changes on a Hair Mineral Analysis test can mean big things. Sometimes people think they have not made many improvements, yet they have. Remember, the test needs to be read as a story and as a whole, targeting down on one number like the copper level, for example, is not the best way to view retests.

Retests are critical checkpoints on a program, we do retests to see how the body chemistry has changed over a certain period. Sometimes, there are significant changes on a test; sometimes there are little, the most important thing is that you are moving forward and even getting a retest in the first place is a big step forward.

Some people feel worse when their retest comes through. Most of the time this is because people are detoxing and heaving healing reactions (Herxheimer reactions). At times your personal healing program may need to be adjusted. One may have switched metabolic types, or a mineral ratio may have flipped. In these cases, old supplements may no longer be serving an individual (because often they have done their job) so new supplements are needed or a change in the diet is required in order to balance out a person’s mineral levels further.

As mentioned above people often are ‘dumping’ a lot of heavy metals which is causing them not to feel good. Again, this is actually a positive sign as we want the metals to come out of the body. A large nickel dump for example on a test will often be the reason why someone may have been having negative thought patterns recently and even suicidal thoughts. This can make people think the program isn’t working. It tends to put a person much more at ease when they realize it’s not them with the bad thoughts, instead it was caused by a metal release, in this case, nickel.

Sometimes it may appear people have not made much progress. Often, in reality, they have underneath; we can see this from slight changes on the test. Other people may have had a very stressful period in their life where their body’s energy was used up elsewhere. For some, they may not have committed too well to certain aspects of their healing program, and it could be holding them back a little. Whatever the situation is, as we say, all we care about is ‘the next step,’ and that is what’s most important.

Positive Patterns

Any pattern that is in an ORANGE color and has a sunshine icon (like above), we call POSITIVE patterns. If you have a positive pattern on an initial hair test, usually this is because one feels optimistic about starting a new healing program and/or something in their life is going in a positive direction for them.

However, positive patterns are the most important on retests. Please focus on these patterns as they are strong indicators of great positive changes in healing and development.

Because positive patterns can be HTMA patterns, single minerals, toxic metals dumps and others they are spread out within the report. Please look out for them.

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.

There is a lot of information one can gather from the Calcium/Magnesium ratio such as cell solubility, bowel function, glandular interaction, and more. However, one of the most important points we can assess from the ratio is the current level of sugar and carbohydrate tolerance the individual can handle. This is accurate up to a ratio of about 13:5. Above a ratio of 13:5 we have found that this is more of an indicator of lifestyle stress.

You have a healthy Calcium/ Magnesium Ratio (Ca/Mg)

In general, the Calcium/Magnesium ratio is called the sugar ratio. A healthy ratio is a good sign that your body is currently tolerating sugar intake well at the moment.

An elevated Calcium/ Magnesium Ratio (Ca/Mg)

Dr. Eck called the Calcium/Magnesium ratio the sugar and carbohydrate tolerance ratio because a high ratio, he felt, indicated that a person was eating excessive carbohydrates in the diet.

Overeating too much on carbohydrate “fuel” foods can imbalance the delicate ratio between body structure and body movement or solubility. In most people, overeating on carbohydrates involves eating white flour and refined sugar, both of which have had most of their magnesium stripped away.

An important note about this diet-related ratio is that one person may “tolerate” many more carbohydrates than another. Thus, the calcium/magnesium ratio is not a measure of the exact quantity of carbohydrates in the diet. That which is too much for one person may be perfectly fine for another person whose carbohydrate tolerance is higher due to better health or other factors.

You Have A Low Calcium/ Magnesium Ratio (Ca/Mg)

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, it can make people feel like they want to give up, of course this is an incorrect response and a proper healing program can rapidly correct this biochemical imbalance. This means however 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.

Improved Calcium/ Magnesium ratio (Ca/Mg) – Better sugar metabolism/ diet improvements

Improved Calcium/ Magnesium ratio (Ca/Mg) – and in a range between 5+9.5

This is a positive pattern and sign that you have made great progress in your lifestyle and/or diet.

Still in a Lifestyle Stress Pattern but an improvement from your last test

This is a very interesting Hair Mineral Analysis pattern. It is often called the lifestyle stress, spiritual defensiveness, or out of integrity pattern.

Definition. The pattern is present whenever the Calcium/Magnesium ratio in a hair sample that has not been washed at the laboratory is greater than 13.5:1. The higher the ratio above 13.5, the more severe and therefore important the imbalance is.

When this pattern is present on an initial or a retest hair analysis, it indicates that something in a person’s lifestyle or something outside of themselves is interfering with health. This could be a job, relationship or living space that is not currently in alignment with one’s deeper feelings.

Often when a job is changed or a relationship has improved or sometimes ended, the person comes out of a lifestyle stress pattern.

It is fascinating how a hair mineral analysis test can sometimes tell you about whether something outside of yourself is not in alignment with your true self. This is one of them amazing patterns.

An improvement in this ratio means that there has been an improvement in your lifestyle area that has been holding you back however it has not been fully transformed.

It is good to look at problems with jobs, relationships, living environments, and other external things and to try and fix them in order to fully come out of this pattern.

You are in a Lifestyle Stress Pattern

A lifestyle stress pattern appears on a properly performed Hair Mineral Analysis test when the Calcium/Magnesium ratio is above 13.5

A lifestyle stress pattern means that there is something going on in a person’s 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 live.

It is an indicator that someone’s inner space or soul is not happy with the current situation but the person is going along with it.

It can be difficult for a person to leave these situations. This is often the reason why people cannot leave in the first place. They are like boulders that hold people down. It may be hard to remove the boulder but when a person does it always improves their life for the better and frees them from whatever shackles they were in before, both physically and mentally.

Extreme Lifestyle Stress

When a person is showing a lifestyle stress pattern and the calcium is very high this is an indicator that the lifestyle stress mentioned above is extreme.

Wasting One’s Time

If the extreme lifestyle stress pattern is also combined with a low potassium level this represents another pattern called wasting one’s time. All this can help one understand the pattern. Wasting one’s time basically means whatever lifestyle stress is causing a person to be in the pattern really isn’t serving a person well at all, in other words the individual is basically ‘wasting their time’ with whatever lifestyle stress they are currently accepting.

Out of Lifestyle Stress

This pattern indicates an improvement of something outside of yourself that is no longer affecting you. This is often a relationship, a job or perhaps where you live or other lifestyle issues.

It is a great pattern and means whatever has changed in your lifestyle has changed for the better!

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.

Dr. Paul Eck called this ratio the thyroid ratio. He used it to help determine the oxidation rate.

Thyroid glandular activity lowers calcium in the body. This is well known in medicine. Potassium sensitizes the tissues to thyroid hormone.

A Hair Mineral Analysis is not an indicator of a person’s thyroid output. Rather it measures the thyroid hormone’s effect on the cells. It can show how much thyroid hormone has managed to get into cells or how little.

This is quite powerful because many people for example may show low thyroid hormones in the blood. However their cell permeability may be high. Health practitioners often will give thyroid hormones to an individual if they are showing low thyroid hormones in the body, when in reality their cells may be very permeable if too much thyroid hormone is going into the cells. This can be a dangerous combination, that is one example of how Hair Mineral Analysis tests can be superior in areas to blood tests.

You have a slightly elevated Calcium/ Potassium (Ca/K) ratio

An elevated Calcium/ Potassium ratio is an indicator of reduced thyroid effect.

You have an elevated Calcium/ Potassium (Ca/K) ratio

An elevated Calcium/ Potassium ratio is an indicator of reduced thyroid effect.

You have a slightly low Calcium/ Potassium (Ca/K) ratio

A low Calcium/ Potassium ratio is an indicator of an excessive thyroid effect.

You have a low Calcium/ Potassium (Ca/K) ratio

A low Calcium/ Potassium ratio is an indicator of an excessive thyroid effect.

Your previously underactive thyroid effect has sped up and therefore improved

This is a great sign that more thyroid hormones are finding their way into your cells creating a more balanced cellular hormone level. You will usually feel a degree of improved energy because of this. .

Your previously underactive thyroid effect has slowed down further

Your previously underactive thyroid has slowed down further. This is not necessarily a bad sign it can be due to many factors involved with deeper healing and rest.

Your previously over active thyroid effect has slowed down and therefore improved

This is a great sign that your thyroid gland effect is slowing down into a more balanced level.

Your previously overactive thyroid function effect has sped up

Your previously overactive thyroid effect has increased further. This is not necessarily a sign of ‘getting worse’, it can be due to a release of toxic potassium, or an increase of the oxidation rate due to metal release and others.

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.

A movement indicator. Low Na/K= Slowing of movement forward, exhaustion, and reversal of movement. High Na/K= Forward momentum, forward-thinking, more future-oriented.

An emotional indicator. Low Na/K= Feeling stuck in the past, less optimistic, stuck in a hole. High Na/K= Future orientated, more optimistic, feeling more elated.

And many more!

A balanced Na/K in general means you are balanced in the indicators above.

High Sodium/ Potassium (Na/K) Ratio

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.

A high Na/K generally represents a more forward-thinking, future-oriented person. It is certainly more favorable than a low Na/K. However, a high sodium/potassium ratio is associated with several conditions, including acute stress, inflammation, and sometimes a zinc or magnesium deficiency.

This pattern also may indicate the emotion of anger, or an aggressive personality.

Other symptoms may include water retention, edema, and perhaps a higher blood pressure or a labile or fluctuating blood pressure due to water retention and/or kidney stress. These are among the prominent physical symptoms that come with higher aldosterone levels in relation to cortisol, for example.

In order to lower and balance a high Na/K ratio you use Zinc. Many people mistakenly always take a zinc supplement. However this can make a person feel worse if they already have a low Na/K ratio.

You have a perfect Sodium/ Potassium (Na/K) Ratio

Healthy Sodium/ Potassium (Na/K) Ratio

You have a healthy Sodium/Potassium Ratio.

Healthy Sodium/ Potassium (Na/K) Ratio (Upper end)

You have a healthy Sodium/ Potassium Ratio however it is at the upper end of the healthy range. You may therefore be experiencing some inflammation, anger, and acute stress.

High Sodium/ Potassium (Na/K) Ratio X2

You are likely to have some of the symptoms related to a high Na/K ratio like inflammation, anger and acute stress.

High Sodium/ Potassium (Na/K) Ratio X3

It is quite likely you have some of the symptoms related to a high Na/K ratio like inflammation, anger and acute stress.

High Sodium/ Potassium Ratio (Na/K) X4

It is highly likely you have some of the symptoms related to a high Na/K ratio like inflammation, anger and acute stress.

High Sodium/ Potassium (Na/K) Ratio X5

This ratio is very high, and it is likely you have some of the symptoms related to a high Na/K ratio like inflammation, anger and acute stress.

Your Sodium/ Potassium (Na/K) ratio is above 12

When the sodium/potassium ratio is above 12, it is an indicator for liver and kidney stress in some cases.

A low Sodium/ Potassium (Na/K) ratio X1

This is a mild 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

A low Sodium/ Potassium (Na/K) ratio X2

A low Na/K ratio. You may be experiencing 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

A low Sodium/ Potassium (Na/K) ratio X3

You are likely experiencing 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

A very low Na/K can make you feel stuck as if you are in a hole. There can be a lot of depression and feelings of apathy.

A low Sodium/ Potassium (Na/K) ratio X4danger

It is highly likely you are experiencing 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

A very low Na/K can make you feel stuck as if you are in a hole. There can be a lot of depression and feelings of apathy.

Improved Sodium/ Potassium (Na/K) ratio – This is a positive sign

An unbalanced sodium/potassium ratio can cause a plethora of symptoms. An improvement in this ratio is a great sign.

Sodium/ Potassium (Na/K) has done a forward flip

This is seen as a positive shift, signs of forward momentum and thinking.

The oxidation rate in simple terms means how quickly the 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, however most adults should ideally be mild slow. One of the biggest aims of healing using Hair Mineral Analysis 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.

Brief oxidation rate summary

If an oxidation rate is slow, a person feels very fatigued, lethargic, depressed, and they often have malaise. They also often have sugar cravings, constipation, dry skin, and other problems. It is characterized by weak adrenal and thyroid glands which often causes many of their symptoms.

If a persons oxidation rate is too fast, often the opposite occurs but in a very unhealthy way. A person’s body is running too fast or too rich. It is like driving down the highway in the fast lane. It causes anxiety, irritability, paranoia, inability to feel relaxed, and other problems. Fast oxidizers have a tendency towards inflammation, high blood pressure, oily skin, and frequent bowel movements. Fast oxidation is characterized by an overactivity of the adrenal and thyroid glands.

Mixed Oxidation means the body sometimes acts like a slow oxidizer and sometimes acts like a fast oxidizer. Often it is a transitory period and the individual will either fall into slow or move into fast.

Your oxidation rate is MILD SLOW

Mild slow oxidation is a good oxidation rate. You may experience some mild symptoms of slow oxidation below.

Those with a slow oxidation rate tend to be tired, apathetic, depressed, and even despairing and suicidal if their oxidation rate is very slow. If the copper level is also high people can be quite emotional. Another symptoms is anxiousness, although fatigue and depression are the most common. People in slow oxidation often use stimulant foods, drugs, or other methods to keep going.

Blood sugar and blood pressure tend to be low. Older people can often develop arteriosclerosis and diabetes. Slow oxidizers are often cold and do not sweat easily. Their brains often work slowly, and many have brain fog, spacey thinking, and slower thinking.

They usually have dry skin and dry hair, and many complain of constipation. They often gain weight on the hips and legs, while the upper body may be smaller. Most have underactive thyroid glands, especially women. They are prone to osteoporosis, cancer, infections, skin problems, and many other health conditions.


Your oxidation rate is SLOW

You are in slow oxidation. It’s likely you are suffering from some of the 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. If the copper level is also high people can be quite emotional. Another symptoms is anxiousness, although fatigue and depression are the most common. People in slow oxidation often use stimulant foods, drugs, or other methods to keep going.

Blood sugar and blood pressure tend to be low. Older people can often develop arteriosclerosis and diabetes. Slow oxidizers are often cold and do not sweat easily. Their brains often work slowly, and many have brain fog, spacey thinking, and slower thinking.

Most have underactive thyroid glands, especially women. They are prone to osteoporosis, cancer, infections, skin problems, and many other health conditions.


Your oxidation rate is EXTREME SLOW

It is very likely you are experiencing symptoms of slow oxidation listed below.

If the copper level is also high people can be quite emotional. Another symptoms is anxiousness, although fatigue and depression are the most common. People in slow oxidation often use stimulant foods, drugs, or other methods to keep going.

Blood sugar and blood pressure tend to be low. Older people can often develop arteriosclerosis and diabetes. Slow oxidizers are often cold and do not sweat easily. Their brains often work slowly, and many have brain fog, spacey thinking, and slower thinking.

Most have underactive thyroid glands, especially women. They are prone to osteoporosis, cancer, infections, skin problems, and many other health conditions.


Your oxidation rate is MILD FAST

Mild fast oxidation is not a bad oxidation; a good oxidation rate is mild slow or mild fast. However, adults are usually in slow oxidation, so it may be an indicator of some stress; you may have mild symptoms of fast oxidation written below.

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.

Their blood sugar can be on the high side due to higher cortisol levels. Their blood pressure tends to be on the high side because of salt and water retention. For the same reason, their tissues often have a watery appearance.

They are often warm and sweat easily. Their brains often work well, with fast thinking.

They usually have oily skin and some tendency for frequent or loose bowel movements. They may gain weight in the area of the abdomen due to high levels of cortisol and cortisone.

They are in a fight-or-flight mode too much of the time. This uses up certain nutrients and eventually can result in symptoms and illnesses associated with this metabolic type. These include high blood pressure, fatal heart attacks, anxiety, panic attacks, arthritis, and others.

They are in a fight-or-flight mode too much of the time. This uses up certain nutrients and eventually can result in symptoms and illnesses associated with this metabolic type. These include high blood pressure, fatal heart attacks, anxiety, panic attacks, arthritis, and others.


Your Oxidation Rate is SLOW MIXED

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. Ideally mild slow in adults.

‘Slow mixed’ means that although you are in mixed oxidation you are edging more towards slow oxidation than fast oxidation

Therefore you may be experiencing more symptoms of slow oxidation than fast, some common symptoms of slow oxidation are. Tired, apathetic, depressed, emotional, low blood pressure, cold, do not sweat easily, brain fog, spaciness, dry skin, constipation, weight gain on the hips and legs and more.

Symptoms of those with a fast oxidation rate tend to be anxious, irritable, in a hurry. Fast oxidation can make you somewhat emotional, short-tempered, and high-strung. Other symptoms are high blood pressure, warm and/or sweaty, oily skin, loose bowel movements, panic attacks and others.


Your Oxidation Rate is FAST MIXED

You have symptoms of both fast and slow oxidation, it is not necessarily a “bad” oxidation rate but we would prefer either mild slow oxidation or mild fast oxidation. Ideally mild slow in adults.

This means that although you are in mixed oxidation you are edging more towards fast oxidation than slow oxidation

Symptoms of those with a fast oxidation rate tend to be anxious, irritable, in a hurry. Fast oxidation can make you somewhat emotional, short-tempered, and high-strung. Other symptoms are high blood pressure, warm and/or sweaty, oily skin, loose bowel movements, panic attacks and others.

Symptoms of slow oxidation are. Tired, apathetic, depressed, emotional, low blood pressure, cold, do not sweat easily, brain fog, spaciness, dry skin, constipation, weight gain on the hips and legs and more.

The first four minerals on a Hair Mineral Analysis Test are Calcium, Magnesium, Sodium and Potassium. We can gather a lot of information about a person’s health and key supplement recommendations are often created from the first four minerals. The first four minerals represent a lot of what is happening on the surface of a person, both physically and mentally.

Calcium Curr: 182.0 – Prev:

Calcium is a plentiful mineral in the body. It is the body’s structural mineral, it allows us to stand upright in the world. Most of our calcium is in bones, teeth and nerves. When stressed calcium is one of the first minerals to leave the body. Most people need more bioavailable calcium to help them heal the body.

High Calcium

Your calcium is high.

Elevated calcium 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 spine).

Biounavailable Calcium. In many instances of calcium toxicity, calcium builds up in the body in a biounavailable form. This means it is present, but cannot be used properly. This condition causes symptoms of both deficiency and excess at the same time because there can be a deficiency of available calcium, and an excess of biounavailable calcium at the same time.

Your Calcium is within healthy range

Your calcium is within a healthy range, however, it is slightly elevated, you may experience some issues with elevated calcium.

Elevated calcium 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 spine).

Your Calcium is perfect

Your Calcium is within a healthy range

Your calcium is within a healthy range however it is slightly below ideal. You may therefore be experiencing symptoms of low calcium such as: sleep issues, easy bruising, poor posture, fight or flight reactions, osteoporosis and more.

Your Calcium is low

Your calcium is low, you may be experiencing symptoms of low calcium such as.

osteoporosis, rickets, non-union of fractures, tooth decay and insomnia. Teeth, fingers and other bones may be misshapen. The posture can be poor and legs bowed.

Other symptoms are muscle cramps, irritability, hyperkinesis, hyperacidity, bruising, high blood pressure, fight-or-flight reactions, fast oxidation, lead and cadmium toxicity, tetany and cancer.

Your Calcium is elevated

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 spine).

You are out of a Calcium Shell

Congratulations, you are no longer in a calcium shell, this is a sign of excellent improvement in your health.

People who emerge from a calcium shell often feel like they are literally ‘come out of their shell,’ they tend to be more present in the world. Their personally usually comes alive and they often feel more outgoing and/or joyous

Calcium Shell- Female – Calcium level of 165 mg% + above

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.

On a retest mineral analysis, a sharp rise in the calcium level to or above 165 mg% in a woman or to or above 155 mg% in a man generally indicates a need for protection. We call this pattern hiding. It might occur due to a trauma, such as a death in the family.

Visualization. The pattern looks like a “wall of calcium”, often accompanied by elevated magnesium, on the left side of the chart.

KEY WORDS TO HELP UNDERSTAND THE CALCIUM SHELL PATTERN

Simple key words that can help one understand the meaning of the calcium shell pattern include:

psychological withdrawal, hiding, lowered awareness, numb, calcified, traumatized, depressed, and “living in the bomb shelter or behind a wall”. The next sections explain why these words are helpful for understanding this very important pattern seen on many hair mineral tests.

WHEN THE PATTERNS APPEAR

Calcium and magnesium shell patterns almost never appear in children, and never in babies. They are also fairly rare in the elderly, above age seventy, or so, on earth.

However, they are common in the later teen years, and they occur in adults. They are much more common in women than in men.

A shell pattern is much less common in men, and if it is present in men, it is likely to be lower than in women, in general.

NOTES:

1. A higher calcium level indicates a more severe calcium shell.

2. When the calcium level is above about 340 mg%, it is called “petrified” pattern. This is a reference to calcification, as in petrified wood. However, it also refers to the feeling of being terrified.

3. Any calcium shell pattern, and particularly if it is a double shell pattern or greater, is a trauma indicator.

Calcium of 165-209 mg% is a single shell pattern.

Calcium of 210-259 is a 2x or double shell pattern.

Calcium of 260-299 is a 3x or triple shell pattern.

Calcium of 300-369 is a 4x or quadruple shell pattern. – petrified pattern.

Calcium of 370-459 is a 5x or quintuple shell pattern. – petrified pattern

Calcium of 460-539 is a 6x or sextuple shell pattern. – petrified pattern

Calcium of 540-639 is a 7x or septuple shell pattern. – petrified pattern

Calcium of 640 + is an 8x shell pattern. – petrified pattern

Calcium Shell- Male – calcium level of 155 mg% + above

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.

Calcium of 250-309 mg% is a 3x or triple shell pattern. 

Calcium of 310-339 mg% is a 4x or quadruple shell pattern.

Aggresiveness – Calcium less than 14mg%

This pattern is defined as a calcium level about 14 mg% or less on a hair test in which the hair has not been washed at the lab. This is a common pattern seen in young children and in adult in fast oxidation.  It is also occasionally seen in four lows pattern or other types of patterns on hair tests.

As with all the hair analysis patterns, it is not a diagnosis of anything.  Instead, it is a trend or tendency for certain metabolic imbalances.  This pattern is called aggressiveness because when the hair tissue calcium level becomes very low, a person is usually in a fight-or-flight reaction, and one of the symptoms of this is aggressiveness.  This is because calcium has a calming, buffering, and relaxing effect on the nervous system.

Other symptoms associated with this pattern are irritability, nervousness, muscle tightness, muscle cramps, and other symptoms of calcium deficiency.  If the pattern has gone on for a long time, other symptoms may include demineralization of the body, osteopenia, osteoporosis, tetany and others.


Magnesium Curr: 7.0 – Prev:

Magnesium is one of the most important, if not the most important mineral in a human body. The reason being is that it is used in so many areas of the body. From osmotic balancing to cell membrane potential, to nervous system functioning, to hormone production and much much more. Magnesium is often chronically low in many people. Magnesium is a high energy mineral, it often contributes to the chronic fatigue pandemic that is currently sweeping the globe.

Your Magnesium is within healthy range

Your Magnesium is elevated

When magnesium is above about 10 mg% in the hair, some of it is biounavailable and usually in an oxide or another ‘amigo’ form. These compounds of magnesium are very irritating, not as alkaline-forming, and pro-oxidant. As a result, they damage body tissues.

‘Amigo’ magnesium cannot participate in many enzyme reactions. Instead, it just builds up in the tissues exactly like a toxic metal. This is why we say it is biounavailable – meaning unavailable for use in many enzymes.

However, it is part of a defense mechanism of the body. When the adrenal glands are depleted and toxic, the irritating quality of these magnesium compounds stimulates adrenal gland activity that is necessary to maintain life.

Biounavailable magnesium is a problem for millions of people. Symptoms of this imbalance may include fibromyalgia and other types of pain, irritability, insomnia, muscle weakness, depression, muscle cramps, especially after exercising, and possibly others.

Your Magnesium is low

Low Magnesium is a chronic problem in the 21st century. Magnesium is needed for many vital roles in body, to cell membrane charge, to nervous system issues.

Magnesium is extremely important for good heart health, hormone secretion, protein synthesis and more.

Deficiency issues vary a lot. Some common defficiency symptoms are: Edema, swelling, dryness, diarrhea, EMF sensitivity, fatigue, malaise, depression, apathy, mental dullness, memory impairment, learning disorders, irritability, anxiety, heart attacks, seizures, schizophrenia, psychoses and more.

Magnesium Shell Present

A magnesium shell is similar to a calcium shell and has similar symptoms. Please read the calcium shell article below for more information on shell patterns. Below is more information on magnesium shells.

Definition. A magnesium shell is said to be present any time the hair tissue magnesium level is greater than about 20 mg%. I have not worked out the quantification of a magnesium shell at this time (2015).

Meaning. A magnesium shell usually indicates some degree of biounavailability of magnesium in the body. This is definitely the case when the magnesium level rises very high, above about 100.

Usually with a calcium shell. A magnesium shell often accompanies a calcium shell. The reason for this is that on a hair mineral test, the calcium and the magnesium levels generally rise and fall together. This means that the ratio of calcium to magnesium is usually maintained, even when the levels are very high or very low.

Slow oxidation. Most cases of a magnesium shell occur in slow oxidizers. That is, the calcium and magnesium levels are elevated, while the sodium and potassium levels are low.

Four highs pattern. Uncommonly, a magnesium shell occurs when a person has a four highs mineral pattern. In most cases, the oxidation rate is slow and a calcium shell is present, as well.

Getting help pattern. It is rare to find a magnesium shell present by itself. One situation in which the magnesium level can temporarily rise very high, with or without the calcium level rising as much, is the intervention we call “getting help”. This is not a magnesium shell, however. It is a magnesium elimination.

In this situation, the body usually reacquires a soul in its energy field. Along with this, the hair magnesium rises because an inferior magnesium compound is eliminated from the body and is replaced with a higher quality magnesium compound in some enzyme binding sites.

Belligerence – Magnesium less than 3mg%

What is belligerence? It is a feisty, confrontational, and perhaps warlike quality. Dictionaries also define it as aggressive.

In addition to belligerence, common symptoms of low tissue magnesium include nervousness, irritability, anger, Attention Deficit Disorder, hyperactivity or hyperkinesis, muscle tension, muscle cramps, and often cardiovascular symptoms.

Cardiovascular symptoms. They may include high blood pressure, angina, and impaired circulation. Low magnesium can also result in a fatal heart attack or stroke.

Sympathetic nervous system heart attacks. These are fast oxidizer heart attacks in which all of the coronary arteries constrict in a cascade effect. This is far worse than having one or more blocked arteries. For this reason, these heart attacks are often fatal. However, they are completely preventable with nutrition.

Doctors should be warning everyone to eat more magnesium foods and to take a magnesium supplement. That this does not occur is an enormous failure of the medical profession.

Why is the belligerent pattern important?

The reasons include:

1. It is a form of aggressiveness that can get out of hand if it becomes extreme. It could lead to violence, for example.

2. It puts great stress on one’s body. As stated above, this can cause high blood pressure and even fatal heart attacks and strokes. These are quite common, in fact.

3. Belligerence gets in the way of a person’s mental and spiritual growth. This is an important problem for both adults and children.

For example, if a child is belligerent and tends toward hyperactivity, he or she may not learn well in school, even though the child is very intelligent. This will set the child back and can also seriously impair self esteem and confidence. It could even lead to suicide, and it does.


Sodium Curr: 24.7 – Prev:

Sodium is the solubility and volatility element. It is found mainly outside the cells or extracellularly. Although sodium does not participate in a single enzyme in the body, it is the body’s great solvent, meaning it dissolves many chemicals. It is also a major regulator of the fluid balance, pH and other fluid-related aspects of the body.

High Sodium

High sodium or adrenal stress pattern- volatile, high stress, inflammation

An elevated hair sodium level is a feature of fast oxidation and an alarm stage of stress. The cause is usually higher aldosterone secretion by the adrenal glands. This may be due to acute stress or to emotions such as anger or fright. Cadmium and other toxic metals in the kidneys, along with kidney infections, can also raise the hair tissue sodium level.

Your Sodium is within healthy range

Low Sodium

Low hair sodium. A low hair sodium level is associated with weak adrenal activity, slow oxidation and an exhaustion stage of stress. It indicates sodium loss through the kidneys and is usually affected little or not at all by eating salt

Low Sodium- Basic Burnout

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 just taking supplements is not always effective in reversing the condition.

Adrenal burnout results in symptoms such as low blood pressure, weakness, and fatigue that is not relieved by rest and sleep. It is very common today.

Other terms that have a similar meaning to adrenal burnout include adrenal insufficiency, adrenal fatigue and adrenal exhaustion.

Sodium increased, a sign of an improved adrenal response

Sodium has a close connection to the adrenal output. An improvement in this mineral as long as its below the ideal sodium level is a sign of adrenal improvement.

Extreme Adrenal Stress Pattern

Extreme adrenal stress pattern is an extreme adrenal gland reaction or fight-or-flight reaction. In fact, any time the sodium level on a hair mineral analysis is over about 30 mg%, one could say that it is a degree of adrenal alarm reaction. However, this pattern is defined as a sodium level above 100 mg%, as this would define an extreme adrenal reaction.

This is a common finding on hair tests among babies and young children up to the age of about 4 -8. After that age, the pattern is much less prevalent, although it does occur in adults, at times, more so men than women.

Something seems to be stressing the adrenal glands out alot and it is important to try and understand what may be causing this stress in order to reduce it.


Potassium Curr: 6.2 – Prev:

Potassium is a major electrolyte in the body. This means it is present in large quantities, and is required in large quantities in the diet. Potassium has a single electrical charge, also called a monovalent element. This makes it a good electrical conductor, a solvent, and tends to make it very water-soluble.

Potassium performs many essential functions ranging from regulating the heart to balancing the electrical potential of the body by polarizing the cells. In fact, one could call potassium the polarizer mineral.

Your Potassium is within healthy range

You have low Potassium 

Constipation, muscle weakness, fatigue, high blood pressure, irregular heartbeat, leg cramps and more

High Potassium 

If the kidneys become toxic or congested, it can affect the hair potassium level – usually raising it. This is a sign of kidney stress. It is a common finding on hair analysis tests.

The most common cause of kidney stress and kidney congestion and toxicity is the presence in the body of the ‘amigos’ – aluminum and toxic forms of copper, iron, manganese, cobalt, chromium, selenium and vanadium.

When any of these elements are removed from the body, the hair potassium level can rise for a few months due to a little extra effort required of the kidneys. This is the meaning of kidney stress.

Kidney stress may also be due to the release of certain medical drugs, cadmium, mercury or other toxic substances. In many, but not all cases, this will temporarily affect the hair potassium level and perhaps the ratios involving potassium, as well.

Sympathetic Dominance/ Pusher Pattern – Chronic Fight or Flight 

Sympathetic dominance/ Pusher Pattern indicates a person who is over-utilizing their sympathetic nervous system. In simple terms, the person is pushing themselves, or worrying too much.

It is not the same as a sympathetic state of body chemistry which is fast oxidation. This is why the pusher pattern is a good terminology to use so as to not get confused with a sympathetic state of body chemistry.

The sodium and potassium readings on a hair tissue mineral analysis, and to some degree their ratio, have to do with the utilization of this branch of the autonomic or automatic nervous system.

Symptoms

1. More physical activity than is appropriate for them

2. Anxious or worriers. This is a form of “running around aimlessly” in the mind

3. Tired, but usually somewhat out of touch with the fatigue and exhaustion. They often feel tired only when they slow down.

4. A very active mind.

5. Willfulness.

6. Fearful and always somewhat depressed underneath due to fears, worries and fatigue.

7. A high copper type of personality.

8. Reduced libido in some cases.

9. Ungrounded and not centered enough.

10. Often occurs in intelligent, spiritually-oriented people.

Similar to other patterns on a test we can quantify some patterns. For example, there are many sympathetic dominance indicators. Below are the indicators on your test. Every x1 increases the severity of sympathetic dominance.

Sympathetic Dominance X1- Slow oxidation + K of 4mg or less

Sympathetic Dominance X1- Slow oxidation + Na/K 4 or more

Sympathetic Dominance X1- Potassium is 4mg%

Sympathetic Dominance X2- Potassium is 3mg%

Sympathetic Dominance X3- Potassium is 2mg%

Sympathetic Dominance X4 Potassium is 1mg%

Sympathetic Dominance X1- Potassium is 4 or less, Na/K is greater than 3

Sympathetic Dominance X1 – K 4 or less, Na/K greater than 3

Sympathetic Dominance X1- Potassium less than 4, Na/K greater than 3, Ca/Mg greater than 9.5

Sympathetic Dominance X1 – Four Lows is present

The number of sympathetic dominance indicators you have is 0

Burned Out Sympathetic Dominance 

Burned Out Sympathetic Dominance. This pattern is present when the sympathetic dominance pattern of a low potassium level combines with a sodium/potassium ratio less than 2.5.

This may indicate that a person has been in sympathetic dominance for a long time, or it has been quite extreme, so that now the adrenal glands are quite exhausted, causing a low sodium/potassium ratio. It is not a healthful pattern at all, and is associated with exhaustion, fatigue, depression, and most chronic illnesses.

Improved Sympathetic Dominance/ Pusher Pattern (Fight & Flight Response)

Although you are still in a sympathetic dominance/ pusher pattern it has improved which is a great sign.

This generally indicates a little less worrying and/or overthinking.

Below are the patterns on the first four minerals on a hair mineral analysis chart. Many of the patterns found on hair analysis tests are generated using the first four minerals, Calcium, Magnesium, Sodium + Potassium.

Three Lows Pattern- Calcium is high 

Your Calcium is high and the other electrolytes are low. This is common and often found in slow oxidizers and those with sympathetic dominance. Often, with this pattern, the calcium/magnesium ratio is high. If this ratio is between about 9.5 and 13.5 which, it usually indicates that a person is eating too many carbohydrate foods (starches and/or sugars). If the calcium/magnesium ratio is above about 13.5, it indicates that a lifestyle factor is interfering with one’s health and that the person is defending this lifestyle factor or attitude when one should let go of it. Your currently Calcium/Magnesium ratio is 26


Three Lows Pattern- Sodium is high 

A three lows pattern represents someone who is exhausted. A good analogy of this pattern is a car stuck in a ditch with it’s wheels spinning. There is often a degree of overwhelming stress and the individual often feels stuck but is unsure of what to do.

Sodium is high and the other three are low. The name given to this pattern is four lows under stress, especially if the sodium level is just slightly above 25 mg%, your sodium is 24.7. It means that the person is close to a four lows pattern (which is generally a more exhausted pattern), but there is so much inflammation or irritation that it keeps the person out of four lows at this time. This pattern is often associated with a sympathetic dominance pattern. You are currently not in sympathetic dominance.

Three Lows Pattern -Magnesium is high 

A three lows pattern represents someone who is exhausted. A good analogy of this pattern is a car stuck in a ditch with it’s wheels spinning. There is often a degree of overwhelming stress and the individual often feels stuck but is unsure of what to do.

Three Lows Pattern- Potassium is High 

A three lows pattern represents someone who is exhausted. A good analogy of this pattern is a car stuck in a ditch with it’s wheels spinning. There is often a degree of overwhelming stress and the individual often feels stuck but is unsure of what to do.

Your potassium is high and the other three are low. This pattern is more common in children and in adult men. It is always associated with a low sodium/potassium ratio, which is another indicator for adrenal exhaustion or burnout. It is also usually associated with a fast oxidation rate, which is more common in children, and in adult men rather than women.

Calcium Left Pivot

Pivot patterns are very positive indicators.

All pivot patterns indicate a turnaround in a person’s thinking. They are not lifestyle patterns, but rather have to do with gaining insight, which results in a shift in one’s understanding.

A left pivot involves a turnaround in one’s understanding of others, usually one’s family members. It is also associated with a faster oxidation rate if it involves the first four minerals or first tetra.

Calcium Right Pivot

Pivot patterns are very positive indicators.

All pivot patterns indicate a turnaround in a person’s thinking. They are not lifestyle patterns, but rather have to do with gaining insight, which results in a shift in one’s understanding.

A right pivot involves a turnaround and improvement in one’s own moral values. It is also a slowing of the oxidation rate if it involves the first four minerals on the chart or first tetra.

Four Lows Pattern

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. It has become much more common and can be seen in both adults and children. 40years ago it was never found in children. This is just one of the indicators of declining health in the world.

It is important to note that going into Four Lows on a retest Hair Mineral Analysis means something else, it is actually a celebration pattern and it signifies deeper healing and rejuvenation. It is important to distinguish between the two.

Ways to understand a Four Lows pattern on an initial Hair Mineral Analysis

At times, an attitude or lifestyle pattern. Some cases of four lows on a first hair analysis are related to lifestyle. These factors include working too much or too hard, being much too hard on oneself or others, being in an oppressed or very stressful situation of some kind, or compulsive or obsessive tendencies that wear out the body.

Attitudes that could drive a person into a four lows pattern and/or keep one there include anger, intense fear, even intense guilt or some other emotion that wears down or depletes the body.

While improving the attitudes and lifestyle are important for all healing, they are most important for this pattern when it occurs on a first hair analysis. Recall that if the pattern only occurs on a retest, it is not important, however this test is in initial Hair Mineral Analysis so it’s important to look into.

An autonomic nervous system imbalance. Four lows always reflects an imbalance in the autonomic nervous system. This is the automatic and regulatory nervous system of the body.

Using the analogy of the car stuck in the ice or mud, the person just keeps spinning the wheels instead of realizing he is not getting anywhere and should try a different way of living, thinking or acting.

Getting out of four lows is certainly possible with the correct healing program. Four lows isn’t well known about in modern medicine, and many health practitioners will often advise people to do things that can be harmful or atleast very ineffective in four lows. Therefore it is important to think positive with this pattern and be grateful that you have discovered it because many people unfortauntely do not.

Four Lows on a retest

CELEBRATION PATTERN

A Four Lows pattern on a retest is a celebration pattern. It is a sign of deep healing. A time for extra rest and rejuvenation while your body, mind, and spirit go through a deep retracing period.

It is important not to feel down or depressed that one has gone into four lows on a retest, this is completely different from a four lows pattern on an initial test. It is a great sign that the body is healing itself on deep levels.

A good analogy of going into four lows on a retest is that your body has gathered the resources necessary to put the car into the garage for a deep refurbishment. The reason why we call this a celebration pattern is that people do not go into the repair facility in their life without doing deep healing, so we know that if this happens a person has dedicated themselves to healing their body and as a result the body has taken itself into a phase of deep healing and rejuvenation.

One interesting observation that can happen in this pattern is that the person may go through a process of resolving relationship difficulties. It appears that the body needs to go into four lows in order to process certain past relationship issues. These are often but not always parental relationship issues that have now come up to be resolved. Amazingly the parents do not even need to be around in order for the person to resolve these issues.

Some of these issues are simple and can be resolved within a few months or even less. Other issues are old and deep, and their resolution can take a few months or more. The duration does not matter. One must not think that something is wrong if it takes months or a year or more to come out of a four lows pattern on a retest.

Four Lows on a retest, Digging Deeper Pattern

At times, on a retest, a four lows pattern will become an even lower four lows pattern. This means that one or more of the macromineral levels (calcium, magnesium, sodium, and potassium) will decline further on a retest.

We call this digging deeper pattern. It indicates that a person is delving more deeply into traumas or other blockages that caused or contributed to the four lows pattern.

This is not a problem at all. It usually resolves on its own on the next hair tissue mineral retest. It is a good sign of deeper healing and rejuvenation as the body works through old layers, traumas and patterns to heal.

Still in four lows on a retest

You are still in four lows on a retest. This is ok, it just means that the body is going through a prolonged period of much needed deep healing.

A Four Lows pattern on a retest is a celebration pattern. It is a sign of deep healing. A time for extra rest and rejuvenation while your body, mind, and spirit go through a deep retracing period.

Out of Four Lows

OUT OF FOUR LOWS!! – GREAT WORK – You’re out of four lows. You have successfully navigated through a deep healing and retracing process.

You have come out of Four Lows into Fast Oxidation

Adults should exit a four low pattern into a slow oxidizer pattern. Rarely, a person exits into a fast oxidizer pattern. This is called backing out of four lows or coming out backwards.

However, at times, if this occurs, the person will soon go back into four lows, perhaps bouncing in and out of the pattern several times, until they finally exit into slow oxidation.

There is nothing ‘good’ or ‘bad’ about this situation; it is just what the body needs to do at the time in order to heal.

Coming Alive Pattern X4

All 4 of the first four macrominerals have increased on a retest.

Coming alive pattern indicates more energy, in general, and an awakening or significant enhancement of the adaptive energy of a person.

It is considered a positive change pattern on a retest. Often, the individual reports feeling more energetic, and symptoms of fatigue and exhaustion, and perhaps depression, may improve.

Coming Alive Pattern X3 – Ca, Mg, Na is up

This pattern is said to be present on a retest mineral analysis whenever the levels of all four of the macrominerals – calcium, magnesium, sodium and potassium – rise on a retest. It is also present, to a lesser degree, when 1, 2 or 3 macrominerals increase on a retest, providing the other macrominerals remain the same as on the previous test.

1. The pattern can be mild or more extreme. It is mild if the mineral levels decrease just a little. The pattern is more dramatic if the numbers all decrease significantly. Both are excellent.

Super Settling. The definition of this pattern is when all four macrominerals decrease 50% or more on a retest mineral analysis. It is more intense than just a settling down pattern.

2. Double settling down is a settling down pattern on the first four macrominerals, and a settling down on the second four minerals (iron, copper, manganese and zinc).

3. One can settle down into four lows. This is usually a healing four lows pattern, and very good.

Settling Down Pattern X2- Ca, Na settling down – Mg, K stays the same

This pattern is present on a retest hair mineral analysis whenever the levels of all four of the macrominerals – calcium, magnesium, sodium and potassium – decrease on a retest. It is also present, to a lesser degree, when 1, 2 or 3 macrominerals decrease on a retest, provided the other macrominerals remain the same as on the previous test.

This pattern indicates a relaxation of the body in a curious way. It is as though the person settles in for the long haul, and is more stable in his or her health. Often, with this pattern in the macrominerals, there is an elimination in progress of the amigos (iron, manganese, aluminum, nickel, chromium, for example), or in some other toxic metals such as copper or cadmium.

Your test shows a Super Settling Down Pattern

A super settling down pattern is the same as a settling down pattern but the positive symptoms such a sense of greater stability, a sense of settling down and more.

Double Low Ratio

A double low ratio pattern is essentially a doubling of a low sodium/potassium ratio. This means it reinforces the meaning of a low sodium/potassium ratio. A low sodium/potassium ratio indicates frustration, resentment, hostility, low electrical potential of the cells, kidney stress, liver stress, cardiovascular stress, and blood sugar stress. It is also a give-up pattern.

Therefore, a double low ratio pattern is a double give-up pattern. The person is really struggling and close to giving up.

Visually, the double low ratio pattern looks like saw teeth. It has a kind of shattered look about it, especially if the ratios are very low.

Double Low Ratio on a retest

If a double low ratio pattern appears on a retest indicates that one is retracing a situation from the past, in which one felt like giving up and dying. It is usually benign, although one may have flashbacks of the trauma and may have other symptoms related to retracing of the old trauma.

You have a Step Up Pattern

Components of the pattern. A fast oxidation pattern is associated with acute stress, emotional immaturity in an adult, inflammation and irritability. A low sodium/potassium ratio is associated with frustration, resentment, hostility, cardiac stress, blood sugar stress, malignancy, kidney stress and liver stress. A low calcium/magnesium ratio reinforces the low sodium/potassium ratio tendencies.

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 arrhythmias, and perhaps malignancy and diabetes.

It is an acute and chronic stress pattern and an inflammatory pattern. It is a running away pattern.

It is fast and reckless, the opposite of a step down pattern, which is slow but sure.

It’s important not to worry too much about this pattern as a properly executed healing program will get you out of this pattern fairly quickly if followed diligently.

You have a Step Up pattern with Four Lows

A step up with four lows pattern is a good pattern. It seems to indicate that a person is trying very hard to stay in this life. The person may be “running away from the tunnel of death, as best he or she can”.

Wrong Two Highs- Calcium and Sodium is high

These are fairly common patterns seen on a hair mineral analysis

Most often, wrong two highs should be viewed exactly like a three highs/four highs pattern. In other words, all four of these patterns seem to be variants or indicate slow oxidation with a secondary alarm reaction.

Wrong Two Highs- Calcium and Potassium is high

These are fairly common patterns seen on a hair mineral analysis

Most often, wrong two highs should be viewed exactly like a three highs/four highs pattern. In other words, all four of these patterns seem to be variants or indicate slow oxidation with a secondary alarm reaction.

Most often, wrong two highs should be viewed exactly like a three highs/four highs pattern. In other words, all four of these patterns seem to be variants or indicate slow oxidation with a secondary alarm reaction.

You are in a Four Highs Pattern

Two patterns superimposed. Four highs is a combination of two components:

1. The high calcium and magnesium indicate an underlying slow oxidation or exhaustion pattern.

2. Superimposed on this pattern are high sodium and potassium readings. These indicate an alarm reaction, or fight-or-flight reaction occurring at the same time.

The combination 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.

The pattern is also called a slow oxidizer under stress. This term is applied because in essence one is a slow oxidizer. However, some type of stress is present that is causing elevated levels of sodium and potassium.

Most people are very uncomfortable in a four highs pattern and feel better when they come out of the pattern. However, a subset of people like the pattern, perhaps because they like a balanced oxidation rate and they have learned how to keep it balanced. There individuals are often delicate souls, because they are quite sensitive to their oxidation rate and will go to some length to keep it fairly balanced in a four highs pattern.

These people are often somewhat depressed and angry underneath, and do not want to face the depressing feelings that often accompany a significantly slow oxidation rate.

Three Highs Pattern – Calcium is low

This pattern on a hair analysis is surprisingly similar to a four highs pattern. A four highs poattern is a secondary alarm reaction.

The pattern is also called a slow oxidizer under stress. This term is applied because in essence one is a slow oxidizer. However, some type of stress is present that is causing elevated levels of sodium and potassium.

You are in a Step Down Pattern

In this pattern the individual is often very determined to move ahead in his or her life, in spite of some fatigue or exhaustion. The person is often moving ahead slowly, with this pattern, and doing well, even though the energy level is low. It is thus a pattern of overcoming odds against oneself, and slowly pushing forward in one’s life. One can call it “digging in one’s heels” and moving ahead in spite of obstacles.

Developing the will. One may say that the step down pattern is associated with developing the quality of focused and concentrated will in one’s life. This is in contrast to a step up pattern, which is associated with a need to develop the quality of love and surrender, and to move past the lower will of the ego.

You are in a Hill Pattern

A hill pattern can appear on an initial hair mineral test, or on a retest mineral analysis. It is found at about the same rate in men and in women. It is more common in adults than in children. It is a very positive pattern.

Meaning of the hill pattern

It indicates:

– turning a corner.

– a knowing, like having a 360 degree view because you are standing on the top of a mountain and can look all around.

– overcoming something.

– a release from a bondage or situation.

– reaching a peak or top of the hill.

– openness to moving forward in one’s life.

Like being at the top of a hill, one can now “spread one’s wings” and move in any direction rather easily. As the saying goes, “it is all downhill from here”. It can feel as if one is viewing the world from the top of a mountain rather than being deeply involved in the world. This gives one an approximation of the sense of this pattern when it appears on a hair mineral analysis.

Another way to understand the hill pattern is by considering its opposite, the Bowl Pattern. The bowl pattern is characterized by feeling stuck, constricted, confined, empty, lost or clueless.


You are in a Bowl Pattern

This pattern is associated with feeling stuck, mentally and emotionally, as though one has few options. One is “in the thick of it” right now.

To understand this pattern, consider the two ratios that it consists of. A low sodium/potassium ratio is associated with exhaustion, chronic stress, and often frustration, resentment and hostility.

This is combined with a high calcium/magnesium ratio. This is associated with defensiveness. One may be defending a lifestyle factor or an attitude that is not helpful for a person.

The combination of these two situations – fatigue, hostility, resentment, frustration – along with defensiveness, it is not surprising that one begins to feel stuck emotionally, mentally and perhaps physically as well. This is an example of how two interesting patterns on a hair mineral analysis can combine to form another interesting and more complex pattern.

Giving Away Your Power Pattern

A somewhat uncommon pattern on a hair mineral analysis is called “giving away your power”.

Other names for the pattern in Tibetan medicine are “under water – can’t get her breath” or “drowning”. All the names may be helpful to understand the meaning of the pattern.

It often occurs in people who give away their power and energy too easily. They can often have a victim mentally that needs to be resolved. It is important for these people to try and take more responsibility in their lives which helps them come out of this pattern.

Double High Ratio

Double high ratio patterns tend to reinforce the symptomatology and pathology associated with a high sodium/potassium ratio such as inflammation, acute stress, and anger.

Stress From Within And Without

Stress from within and without is defined as a combination of sympathetic dominance pattern (low potassium) with spiritual defensiveness pattern/lifestyle stress pattern (an elevated calcium/magnesium ratio).

Sympathetic dominance is a willful stress from within. Spiritual defensive pattern is to some degree a stress from without, at times due to a lifestyle factor.

However, this pattern may simply be a combination of two different kinds of stressors, as follows.

1. Sympathetic dominance pattern (pusher pattern). This stress pattern is due to willfulness, or feeling a need to push oneself all the time. One lives literally as though chased by a tiger much of the time. The person has great difficulty relaxing, slowing down, “doing nothing”, and often does not allow himself or herself to rest sufficiently. The body is in a continuous fight-or-flight state that is very hard on the body and is quite catabolic, meaning it tends to break down the body and inhibit digestion, elimination and the immune response, among other critical body systems.

2. Spiritual defensiveness. This is stress due to staying in a relationship, job, school situation, location, attitude or other situation that is no longer appropriate. In other words, the person is “holding on” to something, someone, some place, job or attitude that is no longer working or appropriate, though it may seem okay. At times, it may not be voluntary, such as when it occurs in a child, although the child may be ‘going along’ when he should be rebelling or acting differently in some way.

We all do this to some extent. However, when the pattern shows up it means that it is in some way interfering with one’s health or one’s spiritual path.

One is literally living in the past, in most cases, or perhaps just living in fear of change. So this is the second type of stress seen with this pattern. Thus, it is a double-trouble stress pattern that requires a lot of lifestyle and habit change in some cases

Trying Too Hard

Trying too hard pattern means what the words say. It is a person who is pushing himself or herself quite hard, and yet not achieving too much by so doing. This is the basic meaning of the pattern. It is thus a lifestyle problem in which one’s great efforts in a particular direction are not, at least at this time, paying off very much.

Common symptoms include fatigue, some depression, impaired digestion and/or elimination, sweet cravings, hypoglycemia, allergies, exhaustion at times, and often other symptoms related to copper imbalance and a low thyroid gland such as emotional upset, PMS, skin rashes, weight gain on the hips, and others.

Psychological aspects. These are often prominent. Often the person is rather stubborn and hard-headed, so he or she continues in the same direction even though little reward is found in it. This may be viewed as a type of “spinning the wheels” behavior. It is not always bad, but it is hard on one’s health.

Sympathetic dominance, in particular, is considered a failed transition pattern. This means that the person still thinks he or she can worry or run hard like a fast oxidizer, even though the body has ‘burned out’ and is now in slow oxidation. In particular, the thyroid gland is depleted.

The person may feel very compelled for some reason, to continue pushing oneself or worrying a lot, both traits associated with sympathetic dominance. This might be due to psychological factors such as intense fear, which is associated with this pattern. It could also be due to the presence of toxic metals, especially biounavailable copper in most cases.

Another aspect of this pattern is a strong tendency to worry. This may not be obvious from speaking with the person, however, as the person may stay very busy and distracted. Worry is sometimes just a bad habit. In other cases, however, worry and preoccupation or compulsion is a spiritual trait in which a person really wants to learn something, or move on in one’s life. However, in this case, the method chosen is not working well.

An extreme trying too hard pattern is indicated by (indicated in red if this related to you):

1. A very low potassium level of perhaps 1 or 2 mg%.

2. A very high calcium level of 250 mg% or greater.

3. A combination of #1 and #2 above.

This generally just reinforces the pattern, and might be called a double or even triple trying too hard pattern.

Trying Too Hard To Stay Afloat

This pattern often indicates a person who is trying very hard to maintain himself or herself in the face of a lot of stress. In other words, the person is fighting hard to stay out of a four lows pattern, which often indicates more of a giving up posture or situation.

The stress with this pattern may be biochemical, and often is to some extent. However, often lifestyle stress or imbalances are also playing a major role.

The movement of this pattern is a person who is not making much progress forward, but is trying hard and at least for the time being, maintaining control of a situation.

People with this pattern may be more grounded than those who are simply in sympathetic dominance.

Passive Aggressive Pattern

This pattern combines:

1. A very stable and emotionally “repressed” or “suppressed” pattern, the calcium shell.

AND

2. A very unstable pattern – three highs or four highs.

This creates an interesting stress response on the part of the person. On the one hand, they are often emotionally shut down to some degree and unaware of their situation, to a degree. This can cause a more passive attitude and approach to life.

However, three highs/four highs indicates a significant degree of inflammation and volatility. As a result, those with this pattern may keep their feelings and thoughts to themselves much of the time. However, if they are provoked, tired, or more stressed, they may suddenly lash out at another. Hence the name – passive-aggressive pattern.

It may be called the “blow your top” pattern, because it is somewhat like having a pressure cooker with a heavy lid on it, but one that can be lifted off, at times. Most of the time, the lid keeps things bottled up inside, but if the pressure builds up, the lid can blow.

The pattern is more likely if the sodium/potassium ratio is low. This low ratio indicates a tendency for resentment, frustration and hostility. However, this is not needed for the pattern to be present.

The pattern is more likely if the sodium/potassium ratio is low. This low ratio indicates a tendency for resentment, frustration and hostility. However, this is not needed for the pattern to be present.

Workaholic Pattern

One can see the meaning of the pattern by combining the meaning of four highs and that of a high sodium/potassium ratio. Four highs is a lot of stress, often a delicate and perhaps depressed type of person who is afraid or for some reason does not want to slow down into slow oxidation even though that is where they belong, and it is an unstable pattern as well.

This combines with a high sodium/potassium ratio, which indicates acute stress, inflammation, anger, pushing oneself, trying very hard and so on.

The person may not work at an office or job 80 hours a week. The pattern occurs in housewives, laborers and anyone, in fact, who is using work or some similar activity as an escape and perhaps as a drug to stay stimulated, as they are afraid or unwilling for some reason to slow down and relax.

    OTHER HAIR MINERAL ANALYSIS PATTERNS & MINERAL PATTERNS

There are many other hair analysis patterns not only concerning the first four mineral patterns. Extra patterns and other notable mineral patterns are shown below.

You are in a Hill Pattern on the Second Four

It is understood that the second four minerals, iron, copper, manganese + zinc represent what is going off inside the body. ‘In the engine’ so to speak.

Therefore a hill pattern on the second four is similar to a hill pattern on the first four, however, it is related to a deeper level of joy that one may not be fully aware of

A hill pattern represents,

– turning a corner.

– a knowing, like having a 360 degree view because you are standing on the top of a mountain and can look all around.

– overcoming something.

– a release from a bondage or situation.

– reaching a peak or top of the hill.

– openness to moving forward in one’s life.

It can feel as if one is viewing the world from the top of a mountain rather than being deeply involved in the world at this time. This gives one an approximation of the sense of this pattern when it appears on a hair mineral analysis.

Another way to understand the hill pattern is by considering its opposite, the Bowl Pattern. The bowl pattern is characterized by feeling stuck, constricted, confined, empty, lost or clueless.


You are in a double Bowl Pattern

A double bowl pattern means that not only are the first four minerals and a hair analysis test in a bowl pattern but so are the second four, iton, copper, manganese and zinc.

The general meaning of this pattern is the ‘stuck’ feeling may be even more intense or severe because of the second bowl pattern on the second four minerals.

Settling Down Pattern On The Second Four X4

This pattern is present on a retest hair mineral analysis whenever the levels of all of the second four macrominerals – iron, copper, manganese and zinc – decrease on a retest. It is also present, to a lesser degree, when 1, 2 or 3 macrominerals decrease on a retest, provided the other macrominerals remain the same as on the previous test.

The first four minerals are said to be how one feels and how health is being represented in the present. The second four minerals are said to be the layer of health underneath the first four, ready to ‘come out’.

This pattern indicates a relaxation of the body in a curious way. It is as though the person settles in for the long haul, and is more stable in his or her health.

A settling down pattern is considered a very positive health indicator.


Settling Down Pattern X3 On The Second Four- Mn, Cu, Zn settling down – Fe stays the same

This pattern is present on a retest hair mineral analysis whenever three of the levels of all of the second four macrominerals – iron, copper, manganese and zinc – decrease on a retest. It is also present, to a lesser degree, when 1 or 2 macrominerals decrease on a retest, provided the other macrominerals remain the same as on the previous test.

This pattern is present on a retest hair mineral analysis whenever the levels of three of the second four macrominerals – iron, copper, manganese and zinc – decrease on a retest considering the other 1 stays the same. It is also present, to a lesser degree, when 1 or 2 macrominerals decreases on a retest, provided the other macrominerals remain the same as on the previous test.

The first four minerals are said to be how one feels and how health is being represented in the present. The second four minerals are said to be the layer of health underneath the first four, ready to ‘come out’.

Your test shows a Super Settling Down Pattern On The Second Four

A super settling down pattern is the same as a settling down pattern but the positive symptoms such a sense of greater stability, a sense of settling down etc are heightened.


Double Hill Pattern

The double hill pattern is fairly rare. However, when it appears on either an initial hair test or a retest, it indicates “excitement within and without”. In other words, it is a deeper joy and celebration pattern than a single hill.

The individual with a double hill may or may not be consciously aware of the joy and celebration energy that is present. This is because sometimes many symptoms are still present, and the person can be focused on these instead of on the overall situation or improvement in one’s health.


You are in a double Bowl Pattern

A double bowl pattern means that not only are the first four minerals and a hair analysis test in a bowl pattern but so are the second four, iton, copper, manganese and zinc.

The general meaning of this pattern is the ‘stuck’ feeling may be even more intense or severe because of the second bowl pattern on the second four minerals.

Double Low Ratio on the second four

Double low ratio pattern on the second four minerals. This is an indicator of past trauma, and very reliable. It often coincides with other trauma indicators such as calcium shell, four lows.


Double 3up Pattern

A double 3up pattern means 3 of the first 4 minerals on a hair analysis have increased and 3 of the second 4 minerals have also increased

This is a positive pattern and is similar to a coming alive pattern, just not as strong. A coming alive pattern basically means that the body is starting to ‘wake up’ or ‘come alive’, another way to say it is the engine is starting to fire up. This is a coming alive pattern and a double 3up is a milder version.


Copper

Copper is often a much talked about mineral in healing. The reason being is that it is often the cause of a plethora of symptoms.

People can be copper toxic, copper deficient or have biounavailable copper.

Having biounavailable copper is often the most common, usually what happens in this situation is that copper is in excess in the body, however the body doesn’t produce copper binding proteins too well like ceruloplasmin and metallothionein. Without these proteins copper is not transported around the body easily and often gets accumulated in the body. This can give rise to both copper toxicity symptoms and copper deficiency. That’s why it is super important to create a healing program for copper imbalances based upon a Hair Mineral Analysis as only then it is possible to see whether an individual is either copper toxic or deficient or both.

Copper imbalance symptoms include, racing mind, spiciness, detachment, anxiety, fear, depression, PMS, skin problems including rashes, acne, eczema, easy bruising, insomnia, bi-polar, schizophrenia, ovarian cysts, scoliosis, migraines, panic attacks and many more.


You have high Copper

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 is dumping

Your copper is dumping, copper elimination symptoms are often very varied.

Common symptoms when copper pours into the bloodstream on its way out of the body can include headaches and skin rashes such as acne, pimples and others. The rash can be anywhere on the body, though the most common locations are the face, head, neck and trunk areas.

Other common symptoms are fatigue or its opposite, a kind of anxious, wound up feeling in which the mind can race and one has trouble sleeping, resting or even just slowing down. One may also feel nausea, impaired appetite, and possibly some other digestive disturbances such as some diarrhea, constipation, gas or bloating. Some also have a flare-up of an infection, a cold or flu symptoms.

An interesting symptom in men is testicular pain and/or tenderness. It can come on suddenly and can be severe, so the man does not even want to sit down. Fortunately, it usually passes in a few hours or perhaps a day.

Younger women may experience changes in their menstrual cycle, or they may have more menstrual symptoms as copper is removed. Some women will have shorter cycles for a while, which will eventually even out again when the copper elimination is over. An interesting observation is that if a young woman’s menstrual period does not coincide with the full moon, as copper becomes more balanced, the period will often change over a few months and begin to coincide with the moon cycle.


Copper is starting to release

Your copper has increased on a retest. This is a sign that the body is starting to release and mobilize copper. You may experience some symptoms of copper elimination symptoms. Also increases in copper mobilization in the hair may be a sign that copper is being released in other areas of the body such as through the skin or urine etc.


Copper spike pattern

This pattern is associated with intense fear and perhaps suicidal thoughts.


YOU HAVE 0 COPPER TOXICITY INDICATORS


Hidden Copper Toxicity

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. Below are all of the hidden copper toxicity indicators on your test. In general, the more indicators you have, the more copper toxic you are.

The list of copper toxicity indicators on your test is below.

The number of copper toxicity indicators you have is 0


Adrenal Burnout

Adrenal burnout is a very common problem in the modern world. Unlike adrenal fatigue, burnout is a more long term derangement of the adrenal glands that may take longer than a couple of weeks of rest. When the adrenal glands are burned out most people feel chronically fatigued, sometimes in the extreme. This is often coupled with depression because you need energy to feel upbeat. When the adrenal glands are weak this in turn often puts other areas of the body under strain such as the liver, pancreas, and detoxification pathways indirectly causing other symptoms.

There are quite a few indicators on a hair mineral analysis test that indicates a person is in adrenal burnout. Below are all of the indicators of adrenal burnout on your test. Every x1 means an increase in the severity of adrenal burnout

Adrenal Burnout X1- Slow Oxidation with a Ca/K greater than 200

Adrenal Burnout X1- Calcium Shell

Adrenal Burnout X1- Na/K less than 2.5- The lower the ratio the more severe

Adrenal Burnout X1- Sodium less than 11mg%

Adrenal Burnout X1- Potassium less than 5mg%

Adrenal Burnout X2- Four lows present

Adrenal Burnout X1- Phosphorus less than 12mg%

Adrenal Burnout X2- Phosphorus less than 10

Adrenal Burnout X1- Calcium is high

Adrenal Burnout X1- Magnesium is high

Adrenal Burnout X1- Sodium is high

Adrenal Burnout X1- Potassium is high

The number of adrenal burnout indicators you have is 1


At the moment you have 0 burnout indicators, however, sometimes especially with regards to early HTMA tests heavy metals hidden inside the body can stimulate the adrenals glands and other organs which can push up minerals artificially. This makes the test look better than how a person is feeling.


Please note, because you are in fast oxidation as an adult, it is likely your adrenal glands are under stress. As a result, usual burnout indicators do not show properly.

High Amigos Present

Definition of the amigos. These are toxic forms of common minerals such as iron, manganese, copper, aluminum, chromium, selenium, calcium, magnesium, boron and vanadium. Others are nickel, cobalt, molybdenum, potassium and lithium. There may be other minerals that can form these toxic compounds, as well.

The ‘Amigos’ can cause a myriad of symptoms in people such as anger, forgetfulness, malaise, detachment and others. The ‘Amigos’ are quite irritable to the body and often cause inflammation. This, in turn, can result in hundreds of symptoms and diseases from arthritis and headaches to PMS, high blood pressure, cataracts, kidney disease, irritable bowel syndrome, anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, arteriosclerosis and more.


Amigos have increased

“amigo dump” –iron, manganese, aluminum have all increased. The amigos or irritants are oxidants in the body and can cause any imaginable symptom

Removing these can cause a huge amount of symptoms, in general. Aluminum causes a lot of forgetfulness and brain numbness. Iron can cause anger and irritability, and manganese can literally make you feel ‘mad’. Combining these three things together can feel turbulent at times, but it is very good to get them out!!


Anchor Patterns

Anchor patterns indicate improvement in the architecture or shape or the brain sulci in an area of the brain. They are all very positive patterns.

Current research is not sure why keeping the mineral levels the same or very close helps the brain. However, we surmise that the similar numbers provide stability needed to regenerate the nervous system.

Below are the anchor patterns on your test.

Calcium Anchor

Calcium anchor = Improvement in the sulci in the back of the head. These are less common, and may have to do with improvement in vision or visual processing disorders.

Magnesium Anchor

Magnesium anchor = Improvement in the sulci on the right side of head. These are quite common and have to do with improvements in language and thinking skills.

Sodium Anchor

Sodium anchor = Improvement in the sulci on the left side of the head. These are common, but not as common as magnesium anchors. Sodium anchors often have to do with improvements in language and thinking skills.

Potassium Anchor

Potassium anchor = Improvement in the sulci at the top of the head. This has to do with balance and other brain activities.

Iron Anchor

Iron anchor = Improvement in the sulci in the back of the head involving language processing.

Copper Anchor

Copper anchor = Improvement in the sulci on the top of the head. We are not sure of the exact brain activity involved.

Manganese Anchor

Manganese anchor = Improvement in the sulci top of the head. We are not sure of the exact brain activity involved.

Zinc Anchor

Zinc anchor = Improvement in the sulci in the back of the brain. We need more research about this anchor

Chromium Anchor

Selenium Anchor

Phosphorus Anchor

Lithium Anchor

Molybdenum Anchor

Cobalt Anchor

The number of anchor patterns you have is 0


You have 7 Anchor patterns, this is a New Brain Pattern


You have 8 Anchor patterns, this is a New Brain Pattern


You have a wise person anchor pattern (9 or more anchors)


Iron Elevated

Conditions in which iron can be a factor include diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, other inflammatory conditions, oxidant damage, Alzheimer’s disease and cancer. Others include chronic infections, hair loss, hypothyroidism, hyperactive behavior, violence, attention deficit disorder, and other health conditions.


Your Zinc is high

High zinc can be related to: iron deficiency anemia, diarrhea, nausea, depression.

Elevated hair zinc level is commonly due to a loss of zinc from the body tissues.

Zinc levels may appear high to compensate for copper toxicity. High zinc can be an indicator of hidden copper toxicity.

Cadmium and toxicity can also cause a zinc reading to appear high.


Your Zinc is very high

When we see a zinc level this high it is usually an abnormal reading.

This usually happens when someone is using ‘Head and Shoulders Shampoo’. Please stop using this shampoo if you do.


Your Zinc level is currently in a healthy range.


Zinc up at least 2 mg%, provided that the zinc was less than 13 mg% on the first test. – This is a positive pattern


Low Zinc

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 and poor nutrition with a lack of high quality zinc in the diet to name a couple.

Zinc is also a more male mineral. Increasing zinc levels helps with testosterone and libido. Also increasing zinc often increases more masculine traits in males such as groundedness, and being more linear in one’s thinking and strength.


Zinc dropped – Zinc has been replaced for healing

This means that the body is holding onto zinc in order to help heal and renourish the body. This is a positive change.

However if you have been particularly stressed recently zinc may have been used up.


Selenium dropped – Selenium has been replaced for healing

This means that the body is holding onto selenium in order to help heal and renourish the body. This is a positive change. Often when selenium is being replaced for healing mercury can rise on a test at the same time because selenium is an antagonist of mercury. Currently your mercury has not increased, this is fine it is still positive that the body is holding onto selenium for healing.


Low Selenium

Selenium helps to detoxify metals, especially mercury.


Manganese Elevated

High manganese can cause a plethora of nasty symptoms. One of the main one’s is called Manganese Madness names after manganese miners. High manganese can feel like one is ‘going mad’, the mind can be in many places at once and it is difficult to hold onto thoughts. This is one of the reasons why it can make you feel ‘Mad’.

High manganese can also cause anger, ataxia, schizophrenia, mental dullness, headaches and others.


Chromium dropped – Chromium has been replaced for healing


Phosphorus increase on a retest

Increased vitality indicator and improved protein synthesis.

Phosphorus has increased by at least 2mg%

This pattern is called perking up. It indicates an improvement in the rate of biosynthesis or protein synthesis.

Phosphorus has increased by at least 5% – New Person Pattern

If the phosphorus level rises 5 mg% or more, it is a new person pattern. This is a great pattern.

Phosphorus has dropped

We call this ‘gathering firewood’ on a retest. The body is literally preparing itself or as we say ‘gathering firewood’ for deeper healing.

Chromium Elevated

Symptoms of chromium toxicity, usually from occupational exposure, include:Asthma, Kidney damage, Allergies, Sinusitis, Calcium deficiency, Possibly iron deficiency, Nausea, Vomiting, Ulcers, Fatigue.

Elevated = your metal reading is HIGH

Increased = your toxic metal readings have increased from previous levels and you may be experiencing healing reactions as a result.

Everything Coming Out Pattern

This pattern is defined as an increase in four or more of the toxic metal or certain other readings. The four may include iron, copper, manganese, chromium and/or selenium providing these increase into a toxic range for the mineral.

This is a great sign and is classed as a joy pattern.

Aluminum has increased

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.

Usually when the body is removing aluminum a person can get forgetful. This will pass when the aluminum has been removed from the system.

Aluminum is elevated

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.

Sources of aluminum

1. Drinking water.

2. Any food product prepared with “drinking water”.

3. Table salt.

4. Anti-perspirants.

5. Vaccines and flu shots.

6. Hundreds of food products made with aluminum-containing baking powder.

7. Aluminum-containing antiacids.

8. Clay-containing products sold mainly in health food stores. These include zeolite, bentonite, azomite, and montmorillonite.

9. Food cooked in aluminum cookware.

10. Beverages in aluminum cans or cardboard containers, unless the container is coated on the inside. These beverages include soda pop, beer, juices and others.

11. Other foods such as processed cheese and bleached flour.

12. Cooking with fluoridated water increases the leaching of aluminum from aluminum pots and pans.

13. Cosmetics. Some cosmetics such as rouge, foundations and others contain aluminum that can be absorbed through the skin.

14. Skin remedies. Burrow’s Solution, which is aluminum acetate, is sold as an anti-fungal remedy.

15. All children today in the West are born with elevated aluminum. It is passed from mother to fetus during pregnancy through the placenta.

16. Natural sources of aluminum. These include some herbs, such as peppermint, spearmint and wintergreen. It also includes all salt, to some degree.

17. Aluminum that rubs off many common products. They include appliances, computers, pipes, tapes, insulation, and other items people touch that are made of aluminum.

Lead has increased

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.

Lead is elevated

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.

Sources of leads

1. Home products. These include ‘Grecian Formula’ and ‘Youth Hair’ hair dyes, Suavecito hair pomade, and some lipstick, especially the more costly ones. Other sources are exposure to older lead-containing paint, cigarette smoke, colored inks, older ceramic glazes, older solder, and food cans soldered with lead. Fortunately, most cans are crimped today, not soldered.

2. Industry. Other sources are the manufacture of lead-acid batteries, working in the smelting industry and exposure to leaded gasoline.

3. Food. Other sources are contaminated drinking water, pesticide residues (lead arsenate, for example, especially in wine, grapes and other fruit), food contaminated with lead from the soil or from pesticide use, and occasionally water that has passed through lead-soldered water pipes.

4. A source of lead among health-conscious people is bone broth because the bones of many animals today contain too much lead. Bone-broth therefore should only be taken a couple of times a week.

5. Food supplements. Fulvic acid, humic acid and some colloidal mineral products may contain too much lead.

Mercury has increased

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.

Dental fillings. “Silver” dental amalgam fillings are usually about half mercury. It is advised to try and get them removed, as the mercury will slowly leach out of them and into your body.

Hundreds of symptoms may be due to chronic mercury toxicity. The organ most affected is often the brain, and children suffer the most from many mercury-related disorders. Mercury may be a factor in increasing birth defect rates, autism and other developmental delays, ADHD and other learning disorders, anxieties, bipolar disorder, obsessive-compulsive behavior, panic attacks, neuroses and paresthesias.

2. Dental fillings. “Silver” dental amalgam fillings are usually about half mercury. It is advised to try and get them removed, as the mercury will slowly leach out of them and into your body.

3. Medications. Mercury is found in some prescription and over-the-counter remedies.

4. Dental Materials. Studies demonstrate that each time one bites down on a mercury filling, some mercury vapor, the most dangerous form of mercury, escapes.

5. Large Fish And Shellfish. Large fish that eat smaller fish concentrate mercury up to one million times. Tunafish is the most common source. However, all fish are somewhat contaminated.

Other Sources. Many industries use mercury because it is cheap and has many excellent properties as a fungicide, an excellent electrical conductor and more. These industries include electronics, gold mining and the manufacture of paper, chlorine, adhesives, fabric softeners and waxes.

Among the hundreds of other common sources of mercury in our environment are bleached flour, a few Chinese herbs, cleaners including Ajax, Lysol, Comet, Derma Scrub, Dove Soap, Ivory Liquid, some bleaches, some cosmetics, dyes, paints, inks, embalming fluid, engraving supplies, exhaust fumes, fabric softeners, feeding tubes, felt, fertilizers and many more.

Arsenic has increased

Arsenic the slow death mineral because it causes rather vague symptoms that slowly poison a person. It affects the brain significantly, and perhaps should be called the dullness mineral because it causes mental dullness and apathy.

When you have high arsenic you feel a sense of ‘darkness’ and ‘numbness’ towards life. It also causes weakness, fatigue and malaise. It is quite insidious.

It can affect the cardiovascular system, especially the heart, it can cause chest pains, arrhythmias, heart flutters and more.

Arsenic is elevated

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 can be called the slave mineral.

We also call arsenic the slow death mineral, because it causes rather vague symptoms that slowly poison a person. It affects the brain significantly, and perhaps should be called the dullness mineral because it causes mental dullness and apathy.

When you have high arsenic you feel a sense of ‘darkness’ and ‘numbness’ towards life. It is quite insidious.

Sources of arsenic

1. Some chicken and pig products.

2. Salt. Arsenic is added to some salt.

3. Herbs. Many herbs take up arsenic from the soil and from the water used to irrigate them.

4. Water supplies. Arsenic from agricultural use finds its way into most water supplies.

5. Fish and all seafood. Many lakes are contaminated with arsenic, which gets into the fish. A common symptom of eating fish contaminated with arsenic is stomach pain.

6. Some milk and butter.

7. Pesticide in wine and beer.

8. Tobacco. Lead arsenate pesticide is commonly used on tobacco.

9. Treated and preserved wood.

10. Paints. Arsenic compounds have a yellow or greenish color, and may be in some paints of these colors.

11. Leather. Arsenic is used in tanning leather because it is an excellent preservative.

12. Mining. Arsenic is also used in mining operations.

13. A hardener. Arsenic may be added to other metals to make them harder and more corrosion-resistant.

14. Electronics. Some arsenic is used in transistors and integrated circuits.

15. Medical drugs. Arsenic was formerly used as a medical remedy for gonorrhea and syphilis.

16. Natural contamination. Arsenic can be a natural contaminant of some drinking water and soils. With this introduction, let us discuss more specific issues to do with arsenic.

Cadmium has increased

We call cadmium the macho mineral, and it is one of the violent elements. Cadmium toughens the tissues and hardens the arteries.

It also hardens the personality. Like lead, it is an older male mineral that is associated with macho behavior, violence and horror.

Cadmium is elevated

We call cadmium the macho mineral, and it is one of the violent elements. Cadmium toughens the tissues and hardens the arteries.

It also hardens the personality. Like lead, it is an older male mineral that is associated with macho behavior, violence and horror.

Interestingly, cadmium helps people to “be tough” and take risks.

Sources of cadmium

1. Hydrogenated or hardened vegetable oils.

2. An industrial contaminant. Cadmium is widely used in industry as a plating material, in galvanizing, the semiconductor industry, inks, dyes and many other applications.

3. Brake linings. Cadmium is still used in millions of brake linings of automobiles, buses, trains and airplanes.

4. Water contamination. Cadmium also finds its ways into water supplies and especially into irrigation water and sewage sludge.

5. Cigarette Papers.

6. Congenital cadmium. Cadmium passes easily through the placenta in utero and enters developing fetuses.

7. Shellfish and most fish. Cadmium is found in most foods today, especially shellfish from coastal waters.

8. Junk or refined foods.

9. Hydrogenation of vegetable oils adds a little cadmium.

10. Wrapping papers and plastics used in packaging refined foods may add a little cadmium.

11. Tatoos. Red and yellow dyes may contain cadmium.

Nickel has increased

This is called the depression and suicide mineral, as it is associated with these feelings and symptoms.

Nickel may also cause a person to be “attached” or abnormally dependent on others. It may have this effect by weakening the body or brain in a particular way.

Sources of nickel

1. Rooibos tea or red teas

2. Metallic dental braces (very important)

3. Possibly Breville and Sunbeam water boilers that use nickel-plated immersion heaters

4.Hydrogenated vegetable oils

5. Contaminated alcoholic beverages

6. Margarines and imitation whip cream

7. Commercial peanut butter

8. Vegetable shortening

9. Nickel-plated jewelry

10. Kelp, if contaminated

11. Possibly some unrefined grains and cereals

12. Oysters and possibly other shellfish from contaminated waters

13. Nickel plating on metallic objects

14. Cigarette smoking

15. Manufacture of steel

16. Some batteries, machine parts, wire, and electrical parts

17. Lifting steel weights or handling anything made of steel


    POOR ELIMINATORS

Below is a list of your poor eliminators and very poor eliminators. When you have a poor eliminator it is actually a sign that you are toxic in that metal/mineral but your body at the moment is not removing it. This is often because of poor detox pathways. After a while on a healing program you will often see a very low metal/mineral reading rise on a hair test as the detox pathways improve and elimination in the hair begins to occur.

Definition. A poor eliminator pattern consists of an extremely low reading of either a toxic metal or one of the nutrient minerals. The criteria or cutoff point for a poor eliminator pattern is different for each mineral.

Definition of a very poor eliminator pattern. This occurs when the level of a mineral is even lower. It indicates even more hidden accumulation of the metal present.
