Metals such as Aluminum, Mercury, Lead and Arsenic can cause a major negative impact on your health. Some heavy metals can produce symptoms such as fatigue, insomnia, joint pain, memory problems, bad taste in the mouth and thyroid problems. Testing the hair helps to give an understanding as to the long term exposure to certain metals. Compared to testing the blood, which may give a good look for immediate exposure but doesn’t quite provide the broader picture.
At AlternaCare we tend to use this test to help us understand what is happening in a person’s body when their health issues are more chronic compared to blood tests, which again can be very beneficial in an acute heavy metals exposure. Because of the accuracy of our unique initial exam procedure most patient only need a handful of labs which significantly reduces the costs for our patients.
