Welcome back to another edition of health hack. I am Melissa Deally. And today I am bringing you the third of the lab tests that I want to share with you that give you really powerful information about your body. And what I love about these is, you can simply do these in the comfort of your home, they get mailed to you at home, you follow the instructions, mail them back to the lab, I get the results. And then I share with you those results, your wellness protocol, where your body is deficient, where it's out of balance, so that we know exactly what action to take in order to rebalance your body. This is all part of getting to the root cause of whatever is causing you to feel the way you do and why you are seeking more information about what's going on in your body. So I would like to share this lab test with you here today. And I also want to say that you don't have to wait until something goes wrong. In order to do lab testing, you can do lab testing, any time if you feel amazing, that's a great time to do your labs too, because then you have a baseline for later on. If you aren't feeling awesome, and you want to figure out what is going on what's different, you've got that baseline to compare to as well. But this lab is a very, very easy lab to do. And it gives us really powerful information. So first of all, this is a hair sample. So you simply need to cut small amounts of hair from the nape of your neck and a couple of different places and then send in an inch to an inch and a half in length of hair. If you've got colored hair, you need to wait at least six weeks until after your last treatment in order that we're getting your natural hair color for that inch to an inch and a half. And what happens is this hair sample is then burned to ash and from that the analysis is done. And it will show us all of your key minerals levels and where they are at. So calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium, iron, copper, manganese, zinc, chromium, selenium, and phosphorus. So really helpful information to have because guess what, when the body is under stress, we are burning through our minerals, because our minerals are, are being used to try and help us cope with all of that stress. And if we aren't eating well, which when we're under stress, we very often don't, we're not replenishing those minerals. And the other sad fact is that in today's world with our deficient soil systems, it's actually really hard to replenish those minerals. Unless we're, you know, taking proactive action to do so. And again, when we're in that stress state, we're not thinking about our mineral levels, we're just trying to survive day to day, get the project done, get to the next whatever, we're not thinking about any of that, and then our body becomes deficient. And we can't, it can't function the way it's supposed to. And you start to feel lethargic, dragging your body not feeling great. And that could be why your minerals could be seriously depleted. It also shows us where your four electrolytes are, which are your calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium, that gives us an indication into the stress that your body is trying to cope with. It also gives us indications as to what can be happening in terms of cardiovascular health in your body, we know that stress is one of the triggers of cardiovascular disease, we can see it here in these labs when we see what the stress is doing to your mineral levels. The other thing I love about this lab is not only is it showing us the mineral level that whether they're depleted or not, but it shows us the ratios because they work together. And we want to have them in balance. And so understanding that is incredibly helpful. And that's shown on the very lower third of this chart. And then in between, we've got toxic metals there. So we've got lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic, arsenic, and aluminum, the five most common metals that are found in the body today, and some of those are neurotoxins. And I don't know about you, but I don't want toxins running around in my brain, look at all of the neurological disorders that are happening in the world around us, whether it's Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, dementia, MS, et cetera, et cetera. When we look at metals, we understand what's going on, we can then choose to do a heavy metal detox program in order to help the body release those metals from the body. Because metals aren't natural in the body, the body doesn't know what to do with them. When those metals get inside the body, and they just get stored in the body in the brain, not anything you or I want. And when we run this lab and find that out, then we can choose to take action to release those toxins as soon as possible versus having them stored and stuck in our body for years upon years upon years, which is what can happen. So I want to share that lab with you. If you're interested in learning more again, email me at Melissa at your guided health journey.com I'm happy to have a conversation with you around what your health goals are and how this lab testing can help us understand what is going on inside your body and how we can bring it back into balance
