At The Ozone Spa we offer Scientific Standard Intolerance, Mineral and Homo-cysteine Test that GP Doctors recommend. On this video Tony explains how it is done and what are the benefits of each test.
What Are Minerals?
Minerals are essential to your life, but often, are ignored or misunderstood. Without minerals, your body wouldn’t be able to function properly. There are over 29 minerals divided into two classes – major and trace – based on how much of them your body needs. There are five major minerals in the human body, calcium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, and magnesium, and some of the trace Minerals are sulfur, iron, chlorine, cobalt, copper, zinc, manganese, molybdenum, selenium and many more.
Levels & Ratios
Every chemical reaction in your body is based on minerals interactions, so if you’re lacking in them, certain chemical reactions will struggle to happen if at all. On the other side also If you have too much of a mineral it can also cause a negative effects.
Every mineral does a slightly different roll in the body, form Making Strong Bones, Detoxing, Balancing your Hormones, Easing your Stress Levels, to Relaxing Tight Muscles.
As well as getting your Mineral levels optimized.Which means not too little or not too much. It is also important looking at the ratios of minerals to other minerals, as there are many different reactions between different minerals, some support each other, some push each other out. So with the Mineral Test results, we can see the levels and ratios.
There is a growing body of evidence that suggests a link between heavy metals and significant developmental and neurological damage. On our Mineral test results, Heavy Metals are also shown up, such as mercury, Aluminum etc.
Sadly we are living in a time of high pollution in our environment. Everyone is exposed to pollution to some degree, and these pollutants and heavy metals can possible cause sickness, fatigue, and disease. Certain minerals help to clear these out of the body, such as selenium helps clear mercury out of the body. But the downside is the heavy metals push the good minerals out of the body, so by seeing the heavy metal levels we can clearly see what needs balancing and why.
Here are some examples of possible Mineral Deficiencies and the negative effect they can have.
Minerals, such as chromium and zinc, if lower than optimal will affect many functions in your body including your taste, and your blood sugar balance. A disruption of either can lead to food cravings and constant desire for sweet foods, making losing weight even harder.
Your energy production is also dependent on your mineral levels, a less than optimal level of minerals in your body can lead to you feeling tired a lot of the time.
Can be made worse by an imbalance in minerals as many minerals such as Magnesium can help you feel calm, yet too much magnesium can make you feel depressed.
HOW DO WE DO A TEST
We ask you to fill in a form, name address etc. and then we take a small hair sample from the first inch and a half of growth closest to the scalp or at the nape of the neck.
We then send the form with your hair sample to a specialized lab. Once the sample arrives at the laboratory it is prepared for testing by several specialized 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 analyzed by highly sensitive and specialized instruments.
It can take up too 3 weeks before you get your results back, yet normally it is about 2 weeks.
What Will You Get
With your test results, you will get 4 graphs which are...
⦁ Mineral Levels
⦁ Toxic Ratios
⦁ Trace Minerals
⦁ Heavy Metals
You will receive a detailed 5 page plus report which will explain in detail what you need to do, to help optimize your mineral levels.
We offer a Lorisian Intolerance test which is a identical test to the York test which Dr.Hilary Jones recommends and uses the same lab. Lorisian specialises in offering laboratory tests that measure food-specific IgG antibodies which are sometimes referred to as food intolerance's
Why We Offer This Test
Over 45% of the population react adversely to foods that they eat, which whilst not life threatening, can have a massive impact on someone’s quality of work and home life.
The way that food can affect our everyday life is often difficult to explain and it is common for people to try and eliminate foods from their diet to help themselves feel better. Often they don’t know which foods to try and eliminate and have to guess. Many people don’t know that identifying food intolerance's can be an important element of optimising health and well-being.
Lorisian, has 35 years’ experience, specialising in laboratory tests that measure food triggers (food-specific IgG antibodies). Their results offer a fast track or starting point for an elimination diet. The tests are aimed at those that may have food intolerance's, and those who want to optimise their diets by avoiding any foods that they are reacting to. Their aim is to promote well-being within the pressures of a modern lifestyle
How Do We Get Intolerances?
There is no clear scientific evidence showing how we get intolerance's. Yet if I was going to make an educated guess. It would be that maybe it is caused by eating a certain food under stress and it has not properly been digested and the body has remembered it as a slight irritation, or the food is covered with a mold of chemical such as round up and the body has remembered it as an irritation.
