These are four fairly common patterns seen on hair mineral analyses when the hair is not washed at the laboratory. They can be confusing for practitioners and clients.
Normally, the first two macrominerals on the chart – calcium and magnesium – are BOTH either lower than their ideal levels, or higher than their ideal levels. The second two macrominerals – sodium and potassium – are also BOTH either higher than their ideal values or lower than their ideal values. These situations give us our basic oxidation types, and the patterns called four highs and four lows.
However, in the case of wrong two highs, the situation is a bit mixed up. This article discusses these situations and what they seem to indicate.
DEFINITIONS OF WRONG TWO HIGHS PATTERNS
Wrong two highs exists when any of the following are present:
MORE DETAIL ABOUT WRONG TWO HIGHS PATTERNS
THE MEANING OF WRONG TWO HIGHS PATTERNS
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.
A possible exception is pattern # 3 above. This may be more like a burned out fast oxidizer pattern, or fast oxidation with a low sodium/potassium ratio.
We are researching whether a wrong two highs pattern may also indicate some degree of mix-up or mental confusion within a person.
RESOLVING WRONG TWO HIGHS PATTERNS
Usually, all of the wrong two highs patterns resolve quickly on a properly designed development program. This would indicate that they indicate a type of mixed up metabolic situation that is quite temporary when the proper nutritional and lifestyle program is applied to them.
In this regard, they are like other mixed oxidation patterns that usually resolve quickly, as well, on a nutritional balancing program.
