Diary of Unknown Symptoms

Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Entry for May 29, 2007


Now that I’ve discovered the iron deficiency, I thought I would look back at the hair analysis from the naturopath. Yup, exactly what I thought…my iron level is within the normal range. Same with selenium and zinc.

What a joke…

One of the things I need to do this weekend is find the box with my health files. It’s in the basement somewhere under a huge pile of boxes. I’d like to send my nutritionist a copy of the iridology report and the results from the hair analysis.

I’ve read in my nutritional book that a hair analysis is an accurate measurement of testing for a copper deficiency so I take a quick look at a scanned copy on my computer. My level of copper? 16 ppm Low side of the normal range (15-35 ppm).

As I’m looking at the results, I’m reminded that my Boron is really low as well and it has a relationship with magnesium. So I should really add that back to the daily rotation.

Of course this only matters if the hair analysis is accurate…and I don’t really believe that it is.

Based on the hair analysis from the naturopath, she told me that my magnesium level was within the normal range despite my suggestion and range of symptoms. The results came back 38 and a normal range is from 18-78. There is no way that my magnesium is normal. How can a naturopathic doctor have faith in a test that is obviously inaccurate?? She even told me at the time that the bottom section of the report was controversial and unreliable then used the info against me when I didn’t agree with her. I think the results speak for themselves:

No vibration last night and none again this morning. Two days in a row.

Here’s what it says about the company who performed the hair analysis on the industry Canada web site:

Company Description
Anamol Laboratories was established in 1978. Since that time we service nutritionally oriented health practitioners in North and South America, Europe (U.K., Spain, Germany, Switzerland and Austria) and recently were contacted from Australia.

By using ICAP Emission Spectroscopy, we can get down to the required detection limits for values expressed in ppm (part per million) or in some cases in ppb (part per billion). Our excellent quality control system assures the delivery of dependable, reliable results.

The laboratory is supervised by a Ph.D. biochemist with over 10 years experience as director of the department of Biochemistry of a McGill University affiliated teaching hospital.

The reports, consisting of two parts:

a) The analytical results, including graphic representation, reference values;

b) Interpretation for each element which appears at a value lower or higher than the reference value. The report is available in five languages: English, German, Spanish, French and Italian.

It gives information (the report) about elements in which the person is deficient, or have excess quantities; the presence of toxic elements; certain patterns may indicate metabolic problems like metabolic acidosis, loss of bone- at an earlier stage than it may be detected by either densitometry or X-ray.

Back to the Naturopath. Followed up for the results of the Hair Analysis Test and told her about my new discoveries and about the Colonoscopy. She said the fact that the Colonoscopy was clean meant that I was lucky enough to catch the problem early so that there was no damage.

The Hair Analysis report is divided into two sections and she said to ignore the second half because it was considered too controversial for a reliable reading. We talked about the first part of the Hair Analysis and two things stood out. My aluminum and silver levels were both above normal. She said Aluminum was fairly common as it can be found in deodorants. The high level of silver was unusual.

She recommended I try a vitamin diet to get the levels back to normal.

Vitamin Per Day

1-Vit C (500 mg) 3 times a day
1-Cal/Mag (300 mg) 3 times a day
1-Zinc (50mg) once a day
1-Copper (3mg) once a day
1-B6 Complex Twice a day1-Acidophulus Twice a day

Entry for Sept 03, 2005

Today is my follow up appointment with the naturopath. Yesterday was my last dose of the ultra flora pills. I didn’t think it was making a difference so I won’t bother getting a second batch. Besides, it’s forty dollars a bottle!

In the waiting area I grab a book from the shelf called “Natural Cures They Don’t Want You To Know About” by Kevin Trudeau. I remember my wife telling me about one of his infomercials and we had a brief discussion about it a while back. So I start reading the first chapter and was blown away with what I read. The naturopath then calls me into her office and I put the book down.

My basal temperature readings for the past week are as follows:

Tuesday- 36.37

Wednesday- 36.02

Thursday- 36.15

Friday- 36.25

Saturday- 35.95

I compare them to the last set of readings and they are not much different. I still have the cold body temperature. Interesting but what does it mean?

We talk about the effects of the Candida diet. No real improvement and still vibrating. I also mention about the mild chest pain when I took the B complex vitamins and she said there should be no side effects so I mention sympathy pregnancy. She tells me of a hormone test and shows me a chart of symptoms for each of the three hormones they test for. Estrogen, Andogen and Cortisol.

The Cortisol Deficiency symptoms are interesting. From the ten listed, I appear to have five (*) of them and possibly seven.

Cortisol (Adrenal Function) – Check List For Men

  1. Fatigue*
  2. Sugar craving *
  3. Allergies*
  4. Chemical sensitivity
  5. Stress?
  6. Cold body temperature *
  7. Arthritis
  8. Heart palpitations*
  9. Aches/pains?
  10. Decreased concentration*

Could the stress be the internal vibrations? The doctor said in my first appointment that internal vibrations are usually caused by stress.

The test is expensive so I tell her I’ll think about it. We are only two months away now and why spend the money if I don’t need to. I’ve waited this long so what’s a little bit longer? She recommended another test that would be a lot cheaper. A Hair Analysis Test.

Drug and chemical residues, toxins, heavy metals, and radiation present in the body embed in hair fiber protein as it grows. Hair has the advantage of long-term memory. It’s a permanent record, like tree rings. A three-inch strand of human hair will give a six-month history of what’s going on in the body since head hair grows at a rate of about a half an inch a month.

Clinical research indicates that hair levels of specific elements, particularly toxic elements, correlate with pathological disorders. For such elements, the levels in the hair provide a superior indication of body stores opposed to blood or urine specimens. This is one reason hair element tests are preferred for drug testing and forensics.

Within polluted environments, accurate decisions on how to clean up toxic spills cannot be made without performing soil and water analyses of the effected area. So it is with a hair analysis for the human body. The hair analysis identifies the root of illness. The key to a good hair analysis is in the interpretation – a lost art amid traditional medicine, yet a critical step in disease recovery.

Next week is my appointment with the gastro specialist. Let’s try the Hair Analysis in the meantime. She snips a sample of my hair and she’ll call me when the results are back.

I start googling again and discover a link between low adrenals and how the adrenal gland is responsible for the production of cortisol. Now I’m back to thinking it’s all about sympathy pregnancy and only one thing can happen to see if the symptoms go away…
