My Specialisms

Hair Mineral Analysis.
What are minerals, and how do they play a part in our health?

Do you ever wonder if you are getting the right nutrients? We all aim to eat our 5 a day, stick to wholegrains and eat a healthy amount of oily fish and lean meats. But making sure you have the right level of zinc, calcium, selenium, potassium, chromium, niacin, thiamine… the list goes on, is almost impossible.

There is a way to show us how well our body is functioning on an intracellular level without requiring invasive medical tests - through testing our hair. Your hair can actually reveal a lot about your inner health.
The Hair Mineral Analysis can help show up any hidden deficiencies before they cause problems and provide information that means a simple tweak in your diet or supplement regime can make a big difference to your overall health. A hair analysis test will also show whether you have accumulated any toxic metals, for example mercury, or lead or perhaps aluminium.

Measuring the mineral content of your hair gives you a wealth of information about your levels of nutrients and their ratios and whether you are unknowingly storing harmful substances in your body. This gives you a unique perspective on your health that would otherwise be hidden and this highly revealing test offers incredible value for money.

Your comprehensive report following your hair analysis test will include:
• Your body's level of nutrient minerals and toxic metals
•A list of recommended foods and those to avoid
•An analysis of your body's needs at this time
• Metabolic assessment
•Supplement recommendations

Hair Mineral Analysis is suitable for everyone but is of particular benefit for couples wishing to conceive

Fertility in both men and women is a moveable feast largely affected at any point in time by the individual's current nutritional status and toxic environmental load, including chemicals of any sort, heavy metals, infections (including parasites), allergies and ‘voluntary social poisons' (like caffeine, cigarettes and alcohol). Couples seeking help in conceiving find a detoxification programme for several months before attempting to conceive to be of great benefit.

The hair sample can be easily and painlessly obtained by a few simple snips rather than an invasive blood test. Most people won't even notice that it has been done. For an ideal sample and to allow for the most accurate results, take the hair sample from the first inch and a half of growth closest to the scalp or at the nape of the neck.

This also makes it simple and easy when testing children.

Once the sample arrives at the laboratory it is prepared for testing by several specialised procedures and then the sample is placed in multiple test tubes. Special acids are then added that begin the breakdown or "digestion" of the hair. These acids combined with a high temperature environment will allow the separation of the elements contained within your hair protein. Once your hair is completely "digested" only the mineral salts remain. After being put into solution, the minerals are then analysed by highly sensitive and specialised instruments.
The laboratory has been providing laboratory test services for health care providers world-wide since 1984. It process over 50,000 samples a year and is considered to be the world leader in this test format. Hair is used as one of the tissues of choice for testing by the Environmental Protection Agency in detecting toxic metal exposure.

Clinical results have shown that a properly obtained sample can give an indication of mineral status and toxic metal accumulation following long term or acute exposure.
Conditions affected by mineral imbalances:

Alzheimer's disease
Cardiac conditions
Dental problems
Digestive problems
Hair loss/weak nails
High Blood pressure
Hormone imbalance Hyperactivity
Immune impairment
Learning difficulties
Macular degeneration
Memory problems
Mood swings
Muscle cramps
Prostate problems
Skin problems
Thyroid disorders
Wound healing slowly

A Proviso
The Hair Mineral Analysis test is not intended to be diagnostic and simply reflects long term metabolic activity over a three month period of time creating a blueprint of each individual's biochemistry (mineral status) in order to identify stress, blood sugar and carbohydrate imbalances, metabolic rate and glandular imbalances.
The cost of the test is £69.00 and a follow up Hair Mineral Analysis test to check progress is £55.00. Please contact me for more details through the contact methods for this listing.

Biological testing

Knowing your status of minerals is highly important but equally important is knowing the state of your micro-biome. Do you have a well balanced micro-flora residing in your gut? if you don't it can lead to many complications including oestrogen dominance. Oestrogen dominance is one of the leading causes of female hormone imbalances and infertility and yet with time and patience many of the problems associated with hormone imbalances can be helped and turned around.

I Use Genova Diagnotics laboratory for testing on gut microbiology, gluten sensitivity, histamine levels, immune function and others. Each test can be tailored to your specific requirements. Genova Diagnostics are recognised as the world leaders.

Need help but don't know where to turn. Finding all the science difficult to interpret but know that it is the only way you are going to understand what is happening to you. Call me or text me on 07599 520 406 for a supportive conversation and let today be the day you make a life-changing decision.

Clinical Association Charts - the results give specific indicators for the following conditions and
◾Metabolic Syndrome
◾Chronic Fatigue

◾Autoimmune dysfunction
◾Type 2 Diabetes
◾High Blood Pressure
◾Mood Disorders
Correlations are now evident between many disease processes and microbial dysbiosis patterns in both gut dysfunction and extra-intestinal disorders.

The detailed information below is interpreted by me in the follow up consultation so that you leave with a structured plan of action to recover your health.
-The majority of our gut bacteria are anaerobic and this advanced diagnostic technique has opened doors on our knowledge of what exactly is happening in a person's digestive system. -A Commensal Balance Infographic - Designed to provide a more precise view of an individual patient's commensal bacteria (PCR) results relative to a spectrum of healthy and unhealthy commensal patterns.
-It is a composite of two measures:
◾The Healthy-Pattern Continuum (formerly known as the Diversity Association Index) is a progressive ranking scale based on a Genova proprietary algorithm that differentiates healthy and unhealthy commensal patterns. This algorithm is applied to an individual patient's GI Effects commensal bacteria (PCR) findings, and produces a numeric result ranging from 0 to 10. It is denoted by the 'y' axis of the Commensal Balance infographic.
◾The Reference Variance Score reflects the total number of an individual patient's commensal bacteria (PCR) results that are out of reference range. This number ranges from zero to 24, and is denoted by the 'x' axis of the Commensal Balance infographic.

- Comprehensive and fully explained test results with recommendations to heal the gut

- Complete status of intestinal colonization for an excellent overview including status of yeasts, moulds, eleven key aerobic and anaerobic bacteria, plus as an option from the same stool sample to add in tests for leaky gut, inflammation markers, gliadin sensitivity for gluten intolerance and immune function with Secretory IgA testing, plus DHEA and male a female hormone status profiles are offered.

Kinesiology and Energy healing

Do you sometimes feel a heavy lump in your heart? Does it sometimes feel as if you carry the weight of the world upon your shoulders? Do you feel baffled and blocked but can't think why?
I use the art of kinesiology to go to the real and often hidden cause of a health crisis. Kinesiology (also known as bio-resonance) is likened to having a non-verbal conversation with the deepest part of the person's psyche. In the world of Quantum Physics we are more energy than matter. Bio-resonance muscle testing is the language of energy. It's a remarkable and highly skilled method of getting to the deep cause of being unwell, both emotionally and physically.

Working with Meridians and Chakras - the energy votexes that link us to Universal Life Force - I have developed an energetic system that instructs the nervous system to tap into Chi energy and free the person to recover their health. Your conscious thoughts will always be about what you think is going on but what if there was something you couldn't remember? What if a childhood memory was seriously impacting on your present health? Would you make the link yourself? Making the connections of how you got into a state of ill health is the surest way I know of finding the way out of the maze.

The work that I do as a kinesiologist is centred around the Chakras, and the impact of negative energies and toxins in our present lives. This Chakra Constellation work is unique, and gives the person a feeling of reconciliation with their family and life in general. Heal yourself, heal your life.

Approach to Therapy & How I Work

My way isn't about fitting you into a blueprint just because it worked for someone else. It is about looking at you as an individual, not some part or parts of you that hurt. The whole person, pain, emotion, history, everything. This is the truly holistic approach. With guidance you can develop ways to keep yourself healthy that are not expensive and which work!

The Body is a good place to start. My approach is three fold; establish the cause of the physical symptoms by taking deep look at mineral patterns. Establish if the person has optimal fatty acids - mood balance, mental performance, heart health, cholesterol management, immune support, fatigue prevention and energy management are all helped by a clear understanding of minerals and fatty acids in ones body. And NOW - Genovations Genomic Testing. There are 5 etoxiGenomic Profiles and one NeuroGenomic Profile. (The importance of knowing if you have the ApoE4 Lipo protein cannot be taken lightly)

We are much more than just a physical body.. I look at lifestyle patterns and emotional patterns embedded into the DNA through Ancestral Energy and Chakra vortexes . I use the ancient text and wisdom of the I Ching to fathom out what has been your spiritual and emotional journey, before recommending gently flower remedies to help you let go of past traumas.
This is truly holistic and leads to you recovering your peace of mind, which in turn leads to harmony in the physical body.
