Metabolic and heavy metal testing using hair. Toxic metals and metabolic mineral RATIOS are easily seen.

Iridology

Iridology is a diagnostic tool for the human body developed in the San Francisco Bay Area in the 1920’s. It uses patterns of tissue structure found in the pupil of the eye to identify dysregulation of organs, glands and other structures...

Visceral Reflexes and Behavior

Visceral reflexes are the most ancient cognitive mechanisms present in the human body. These reflexes regulate internal processes such as digestion and the function of the liver, processes which collectively are known as Homeostasis. Optimally...

The Gut Microbiome

GUT BACTERIA MIGHT GUIDE THE WORKINGS OF OUR MINDS – NPR REPORT Not all bugs are bad. We are just beginning to understand how the microbes that symbiotically coexist within our Small Intestines contribute to our well being. The Human...

Digestion

Introduction: Separating the nutrients our bodies need from the food which we eat is almost certainly the biggest challenge our bodies face on a daily basis. Digesting our meals requires much of our energetic capacity, and many other bodily...

Hair Tissue Analysis

Spectroscopically analysed hair samples supply a unique dataset for the subject. Although somewhat controversial*, it is a standard test used by the EPA to assess heavy metal exposure. The key difference between hair analysis and blood or urine...

Broth
