The Metals & Minerals Test will indicate your body’s ability to process and eliminate the items tested. Of the 60+ items, the report will not indicate a result for all of the items tested. Only those items that exceed the threshold set by the lab will be on the report. Unlike blood testing or HTMA testing, it will not provide you with a physical measurement of the amount of the metal or mineral in the body. Testing results take 7-10 days after the hair sample has been received at the processing center.
If and when you are to come in contact with any of the metals/minerals that register on your results, your body may not be able to process and eliminate them the way the body was intended to. This can end up causing symptoms in the body (fatigue, constipation, insomnia, skin problems, anemia, hypertension, numbness, memory loss, headaches, mood swings, depression, digestive disorders, hypoglycemia, and learning disabilities) that may be hard to pinpoint where it is coming from.
You want to make sure you are eating whole foods that can assist your body to naturally detox from these metals and minerals so they do not cause additional harm to your body’s tissues and organs.
