Rehealth Minerals

More and more literature is being published telling about the depletion of our soils and consequential mineral deficiency of our food. The only way to know is to determine your own mineral status. Restorative Health offers mineral testing to see whether there are any improvements that can be made to help improve your health.

Hair mineral analysis is the most convenient, non-invasive method of testing to reveal any nutrient mineral deficiencies or heavy metal excesses. From this, you can choose any adjustment to your diet to restore balance and decide the need to take any particular nutritional supplements.

Method: cut hair as close to the nape of the neck as possible. Cut about a tablespoonful of hair and place in an envelope labelled with your name, date of birth, sex and phone number and return with your completed order and questionnaire in another envelope. Do not worry about washing the hair before taking the sample. Also, take the sample before using any hair preparations, especially colouring or bleaching.

Blood mineral analysis is also available to provide a snap-shot of your current mineral status. Together, the two tests provide a fuller picture of mineral status but either on its own offers a good starting point to identify any imbalances.

Method: If you prefer this to hair or want it as well as hair, we will send the appropriate test kit/s for your GP practice doctor or nurse to take the blood and send the sample/s directly to the laboratory. Please indicate your choice on the order form.

Results: Assessment of your mineral status allows food supplements to be used appropriately in a targeted manner to help you restore balance to your mineral status and counter the related symptoms. It also helps identify toxic overload of lead, cadmium, mercury and aluminium. Restorative Health will provide a full report to interpret the analysis and guidance on appropriate supplementation to support you every step of the way on your road towards good health and happiness.
