What are Metabolic Trends?
First, we use the terms Metabolic Trends and Inferred Potentials synonymously on this website. These terms are NOT used diagnostically nor should they be construed as diagnostic.
A metabolic trend or an inferred potential is merely an early indication for the potential of a variety of symptoms or health problems stemming from metabolic errors. Many metabolic errors are the result of malnutrition.
For example, you commonly hear millions of Americans are pre-diabetic. This is an example of a metabolic trend (e.g. above normal fasting blood glucose level) that infers that you will more than likely become a “clinically diagnosed” diabetic unless you make some changes in your diet, exercise, or lifestyle habits.
How are Metabolic Trends derived using hair analysis?
Our hair analysis is an excellent tool for an accurate metabolic test.
Your current metabolism is an indicator for potential metabolic trends. Metabolic trends are derived based on pattern analysis of mineral excesses, deficiencies, and toxic elements in association with clinically diagnosed health problems. The trends are reflected from the results of hundreds of thousands of hair analyses.
These patterns are closely associated with a combination of criteria that includes:
- The specific mineral/toxic element patterns and ratios revealed on your analysis
- Neurological system dominance (sympathetic/parasympathetic)
- Endocrine dominance (sympathetic/parasympathetic)
- Well-documented disease/nutrient associations in both mental and physical health (globally peer-reviewed scientific journals)
- Well-documented toxic element disease and symptom associations in both mental and physical health (globally peer-reviewed scientific journals)
- Clinically diagnosed diseases and subclinical symptoms
For example, if your analysis reveals a high or low calcium level as well as other specific mineral imbalances and/or toxic elements known for bone health, this could indicate the metabolic trend or potential for osteoporosis. This is by no means to be interpreted as diagnostic. This simply means that the results of your analysis revealed a specific mineral/toxic pattern associated with clinically diagnosed osteoporosis over the past decades. If this particular mineral/toxic element pattern continues for an undetermined amount of time, it may eventually result in clinically diagnosed osteoporosis. There is no set timeframe for any manifestation.
As you can see, this metabolic trend is merely a potential and not diagnostic. The reality is; a health care professional would need to run a series of medical tests too clinically diagnose osteoporosis.
Metabolic trends can include many symptoms from allergies to fatigue to the potential for eventually serious health problems. Even personality traits can be included in metabolic trends! Remember, these are merely metabolic trends!
I am not experiencing any of these Metabolic Trends!
Metabolic trends cover a wide range of known potential symptoms. Consequently, you may or may not be currently experiencing any of the included metabolic trends or inferred potentials in your report. Keep in mind, every symptom is a manifestation of a complex metabolic disorder and can vary from person to person. Symptoms are not an exacting science.
Interestingly, most of our clients find many metabolic trends listed to be quite accurate.
