Hair Mineral Analysis provides an indication of how well your client’s metabolism is working. Hair mineral analysis will also show what levels of unwanted toxic metals such as Mercury are in the system, hindering absorption of other vital minerals. The ratio of minerals is also indicative of health. The balance of minerals such as potassium, calcium, sodium and magnesium will indicate the efficiency of your client’s adrenal, thyroid, and metabolism. Such tests are an efficient way of identifying underlying imbalances that will respond well to nutritional intervention before the imbalance begins to warrant medical intervention.

1.    Hair Mineral Analysis (HMA), what information does it reliably provide?

2.    What we need to know about metals in blood, urine, saliva or feces.

3.    When should I do HMA, and why?

4.    The essential trace elements in HMA, when to supplement and how?

5.    Toxic metals in HMA (aluminium, cadmium, lead, nickel, mercury)

6.    Can HMA show exposure to radioactive metals?

7.    The interaction of metals.

8.    Dental metals and how to diagnose metal release from amalgams

9.    Natural detoxification therapies (orthomolecular, zeolithe, chlorellas etc), and how to validate treatment success.

10.  Discussion of common questions:

The patient was exposed and the HMA does not show it. Why?

An autistic child shows high mercury, but was never exposed. Why?

What about vaccination, aluminium and mercury?

My patient has no hair. Can I send nails?

My patient has coloured hair and fake nails. What to do?

How long can I store hair?

Additional questions can be submitted previous to lecture.

About Dr Eleonore Blaurock-Busch PhD

Image result for Dr. Eleonore Blaurock-Busch PhDE.Blaurock-Busch PhD is research director of Micro Trace Minerals Analytical Laboratory Germany and Trace Mineral International Laboratory of Boulder, Colorado and was Assistant Laboratory Director at King James Medical Laboratory, Cleveland, OH. Her specialty is metal toxicology and human nutrition. 

She is a founding member and co-chairman of the International Association of Trace Element Research and Cancer, and organizer of the first East-West World Congress on Trace Element and Cancer, held in Beijing, China in 1996. As scientific advisor to the International Board of Clinical Metal Toxicology (IBCMT) she lectured worldwide at medical meetings and universities. As scientific advisor to the German Medical Association for Clinical Metal Toxicology (Deutsche Ärztegesellschaft für Klinische Metalltoxilogie – KMT), she continues to be involved in teaching toxicology to German physicians.

She is instrumental in environmental and laboratory research projects in metal toxicology, including epidemiological studies that evaluated the toxic burden of people of various countries, including India and Saudi Arabia. In 2005, she received the IBCMT (International Board of Clinical Metal Toxicology) Award for Outstanding Service.

She was a guest speaker at radio and TV shows in the US, Germany and elsewhere.  She published several books in German and English at reputable publishers including Prentice Hall (later Simon and Schuster) and Hugendubel. Her many articles were published in various languages in medical and lay journals around the world. 

She is a member of the European Academy for Environmental Medicine and the British Society for Ecological Medicine. She continues independent studies at Exeter College, Oxford University, UK.
