What do we report
Mineral levels and ratios as determined for each individual are measured against an ‘ideal’ standard of health, rather than an ‘average’ standard as used by other laboratories. This renders our results more sensitive and meaningful to those people who aspire to optimum levels of health.
We work with precise mineral levels and ratios rather than with the broad ranges employed by the majority of professionals engaged in hair analysis. As a result, we identify even slight deviations from ‘ideal’ values responsible for some disorders which would escape detection by other labs.
Our tests recognize biochemical individuality through determination of three basic oxidation types, thus providing a sound basis for an accurate and specific selection of nutrients based on the individual’s metabolism. Detrimental health effects arising from mismatching of nutrients with individual metabolism are therefore avoided.
We report our results in mg% (milligrams percent) or milligrams per 100 grams of hair. This means that 100 grams of hair would contain the reported number of milligrams of the minerals listed. Some possible equivalent ways these units might be referred to are milligrams percent and milligram per deciliter.
Another method of reporting test results (sometimes used by other laboratories) is ppm(parts per million). To convert ppm to mg% one would divide the results reported in ppm by 10. For example, 500 ppm/10 equals 50 mg%. To convert our results to parts per million; simply multiply our result by 10.
