Diary of Unknown Symptoms

Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Entry for July 23, 2006


With my advanced knowledge of deficiencies from months of research, all of the symptoms of electromagnetic sensitivity appear to be vitamin/mineral deficiencies and that’s exactly what Kevin Trudeau was saying in his book:

“No matter what disease or illness you have , one of, or a combination of, these four things cause it:

  1. Toxins in your body
  2. Nutritional deficiencies
  3. Exposure to electromagnetic chaos
  4. Mental and/or emotional stress

This is the same book that I started reading in the Naturopath’s office on my first visit. Now I’m wondering if she even read the book at all? I told her about the EMF exposure and how I thought it created a niacin deficiency. She agreed at the time but I think she should’ve reviewed the symptoms again and done some research on the types of vitamins and minerals I needed. She never offered anything more. Instead we chased candidiasis, did a hair analysis that told us nothing that helped my symptoms, and did a very expensive hormone test that came up normal.

On my first appointment she suggested drinking 8 – 10  glasses of water a day and gave me water soluable B vitamins. A recipe for disaster…

That was back on August 4, 2005. As of today, (One week shy of one year) I still have the exact same symptom that I went to see her for: An internal vibration.

Exposure to electricmagnetic chaos can create a nutritional deficiency and it’s not hard to figure out why. If the absorption of vitamin and minerals are effected by electromagnetic exposure, then it’s easy to see that the first signs would be water soluble vitamin deficiencies. And it will be a different set of symptoms for each person because whatever vitamin you happen to be low in, is the one that will show up first. If I was deficient in vitamin C, could I have developed Scurvy? If I was low in Niacin could I have developed Pellegra?

Water-soluble Vitamins

The water-soluble vitamins include vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6, B12 and Vitamin C, as well as Biotin (B7) and Folic acid (B9). The water-soluble vitamins are not normally stored in the body in any significant amounts. Therefore, they must be consumed in constant daily amounts to avoid depletion and interference with normal metabloic functioning.

I will always give the Naturopath credit for giving me acidophilus and the B vitamins but that was only the start. Everything I have done has provided me with a very small piece of the puzzle and it was up to the patient to piece it all together. Health care shouldn’t have to be like this.

I’ve made mistakes and done some crazy things but sometimes you need to try different things and make those mistakes. In every example of self discovery, it has lead me in another totally different direction and in some cases: Success. If not success, then it gave me something to think about that eventually lead to something else. I’m not a doctor or a scientist or even a self proclaimed health professional. I’m a normal person who is not getting anywhere with the existing health care system so I forced to do my own research and reach my own conclusions.

I love hearing about how so many people in Ontario don’t have a family doctor. What I would like to know is how many of those people don’t have a doctor by choice.

How many more people are like me doing there own research? How many people don’t have time for doing their own research? How many people have blind faith in the health care system as I once did?

A friend at work summed it up like this: It’s like I’m walking down a very long corridor with a closed door every few feet. Every attempt at solving my symptoms allows me to try opening a door. Sometimes it’s locked and sometimes it opens leading to another corridor and another set of doors. For the past few months, I’ve opened so many doors and now I feel so close to that last door.

And I will open that last door…

Kevin Trudeau says you should visit a chiropractor once a month, whether you need to or not and today was my appointment.

My wife and I arrived at the chiropractor’s office and the first thing the receptionist hands us is a three page health questionnaire. I’m filling out the form for internal vibrations and my wife for her lower back pain. Both of us don’t really have any of the chronic symptoms listed in the questionnaire. In fact, my wife feels silly even going to a chiropractor at all. Having read the book by Kevin Trudeau, I was going for a check up and wasn’t really looking for anything more.

The doctor calls me into his office and reviews my file. I mention the internal vibration and the vitamin deficiencies. I told him about taking Niacin and the B Complex vitamins and how they have had the greatest effect. He said B complex vitamins play a large part of a healthy nervous system and explained that the first visit is primarily to check the range of motion, posture analysis, muscle tone and strength. The next ten minutes are spent in a variety of positions and he places pressure quite hard at times. He mentions that I should also be taking vitamin E at 200-400 IU. He says the B vitamins are lost through the urine and that is why treatment is slow and over a long period of time. Vitamin E however is stored within the body. I mention about my research and the parasympathetic nerves. He doesn’t say too much about them and mentions that I should research some other medical conditions called “Bruit” and “Fasciculations”.

As the appointment progresses, I decide to mention that my knees are weak when I try to get back up from a crouched position. I told him that I’ve been talking calcium/magnesium suppliments for about a week and it appears to mild improvement. He checks my knee strength with a hammer and trys a few things. I also mention that I have muscle twitching and he says it can be a symptom of calcium deficiency and could explain the weakness in my knees as nothing appears to be obviously wrong. By the end he says my upper back is stiffer than it should be and my neck is too straight causing my head to be further from my body. He recommends a follow up appointment in a week.

My wife then goes in for her appointment not really expecting too much and she came out with the following diagnosis: Sacroiliac joint syndrome and facet syndrome. She came out quite surprised at the things he was saying. Her posture was incorrect as one of her legs was longer than the other and one of her syndromes left uncorrected can lead to a hip replacement later in life. He mentioned these problems existed long before the pregnancy!

So why isn’t a chiropractor visit standard after child birth? Seems like the logical thing to do after the body has been through a tremendous amout of physical stress. If she didn’t have the birth, she could’ve gone for years not knowing about these conditions leading to more serious problems.

Second day taking the higher dose of Niacin and I am taking it first thing in the morning. I’ve started to notice that the past two mornings, I’ve wake up with a stronger vibration than normal. Usually I wake up and it’s there but this morning is definately different.

Today I decide to increase the dose to 200 mg per day. I’ll take one in the morning and one at night.

Reading Kevin Trudeau again and now he’s talking about how bad microwave food is. A quick google search and I come across the following article:


When I first began seeing clients for sessions of kinesiology, I did not worry too much about telling them to give up eating microwaved food. However, I kept a record of all of the corrections that were needed for each client when they came in. Now, once a correction is made, it is to be hoped that the correction will stay in place for a long time to come, hopefully months if not years. People often ask me “How long will it last?” May answer to them is “That depends on your lifestyle”.

Most of my clients came back to see me after about two weeks. In the early days I found that many who came back were not much better. I found that they were again `out of balance’. That is, their electrical circuits were not working correctly (which is common for many people). It was therefore not surprising that they were not much better, because the body does not begin to fully fix itself until the electrical circuits are in balance.

The question was, why did their electrical circuits go out of balance? The answer had to be something that was highly stressful, to effect the body in such a short space of time. Once that answer was remedied, the client would begin to get better. Using muscle testing, I went through the process of testing if the cause was electrical, chemical/nutritional, emotional or structural. Again and again the same answer would come up – electrical. When I then went through a range of possible electrical causes, the same answer again came up again and again – the person had eaten microwaved food! Incidentally, this answer never came up when a person had NOT eaten microwaved food.

I began to tell all of my clients on the first visit that under NO circumstances were they ever to do microwaved cooking again. I gave this a higher priority than any of things that are normally considered as health risks, such as cigarettes or alcohol. Immediately I began to get a marked improvement in the results I was getting. Long term problems such as headaches, back aches and emotional instability went away within a few weeks.

Other kinesiologists can confirm these results. David Bridgman, who has years of experience as a kinesiologist, said “Of all the people I test for allergies, 99.9% so far show severe sensitivity to any microwaved food”.

No one has ever been able to figure out my allergies. When I had an allergy test the doctor told me that I was most allergic to cats. Weird since I didn’t own one and wasn’t around any.

They started around 1991 and although my parents were the last people on the planet to get a microwave, it’s possible it was around the same time. Maybe starting tomorrow, I’ll do a test for a couple of weeks and see if it makes a difference. How weird would that be if it worked? No more microwaved food for me!

What next? The treatment.

Diagnosis and Treatment

Niacin deficiency must be distinguished from other causes of stomatitis, glossitis, diarrhea, and dementia. Diagnosis is easy when the clinical findings include skin and mouth lesions, diarrhea, delirium, and dementia. More often, the condition is less fully developed, and a history of a diet lacking niacin and tryptophan is significant.

Multiple deficiencies of B vitamins and protein often occur together; therefore, a balanced diet is needed. Supplemental niacinamide 300 to 1000 mg/day should be given orally in divided doses. In most cases, 300 to 500 mg is sufficient. Niacinamide is generally used to treat deficiency states, because niacin can cause flushing, itching, burning, or tingling sensations, whereas niacinamide does not; however, niacinamide does not possess hypolipidemic or vasodilating properties as does niacin. When oral therapy is precluded because of diarrhea or lack of patient cooperation, 100 to 250 mg should be injected sc bid to tid. In encephalopathic states, 1000 mg po plus 100 to 250 mg IM is recommended. Other B-complex vitamins should also be given in therapeutic dosages.

Urinary excretion of N´-methylnicotinamide (NMN) and its pyridone is decreased. NMN excretion of < 0.8 mg/day suggests a niacin deficiency.

Well isn’t this interesting? Niacin deficiency can be checked with a simple urine test and in the past twelve months, I’ve provided three of them. With the western diet being as bad as it is, I really think that a standard urine and/or blood test should be looking for nutritional deficiencies wherever possible. It’s no wonder so many people are sick. They are not being tested for the right things.

“No matter what disease or illness you have , one of, or a combination of, these four things cause it:

  1. Toxins in your body
  2. Nutritional deficiencies
  3. Exposure to electricmagnetic chaos
  4. Mental and/or emotional stress

Kevin Trudeau is right on the money. If my theory turns out to be true, then I have a “Nutritional deficiency” caused by “Exposure to electricmagnetic chaos”. It’s really only a stab at the dark but it seems to fit. Now I just have to get someone to believe me…

Fifth appointment with the Acupuncture and I show my blood test results to the doctor. She asks me how I was feeling during the past week and it was uneventful. Nothing really different and the supplement didn’t appear to have any effect. I mention that I now have a stye in my right eye. It’s only just started but my eyes have been really itchy lately. It’s my own fault because I keep rubbing them and it feels like there is some grit on my eyeball. She tells me she will give me a new supplement that will help. We also talk about my vitamin C intake. She wants me to cut back to 1000 mg and I’m really hesitant. It’s the only thing that works but I agree to cut back.

She takes my blood pressure and it’s the lowest reading yet. (140/89)

She asks me if I know what Triglycerides are? Nope! No idea. She tells me that there are only two ways to have high triglycerides. One is to eat a lot of fat red meat (which I don’t) and the other way is to not eat any fruits or vegetables. Ah ha! Okay, that’s making some sense.  She says that a high level of Triglycerides can lead to atherosclerosis.

Here’s what it says on Wikipedia:

Role in disease

In the human body, high levels of triglycerides in the bloodstream have been linked to atherosclerosis, and, by extension, the risk of heart disease and stroke. However, the negative impact of raised levels of triglycerides is lower than that of LDL:HDL ratios. The risk can be partly accounted for a strong inverse relationship between triglyceride level and HDL-cholesterol level.

How interesting. You’d think with all of the blood tests I’ve had this past year, one doctor would’ve mentioned this by now? Here again Kevin Trudeau is right on the money. Doctors are not interested in prevention. They don’t find anything wrong if it can’t be treated with drugs.

“That’s the reason why there’s been virtually no movement in the field of prevention. The more drugs are bought, the higher the profit. The more disease there is, the greater the profit.”

She starts with the cupping again and says she wants to add some new accupoints today on my back. I show her my wart and it’s really cleared up from the past week and she’s happy with the progress. One more treatment next week and it will be gone.

She finishes with the back and does the front in the same points as last week. She takes my blood pressure again and it’s lowered to 135/87. After the acupuncture she give me the supplement for my stye. It’s called “Ming Mu” and it will help moisten my eyes. I get home and take a picture of my back again. I notice the red marks are a lot lighter than previous treatments. Progress? Great!

I’m a little concerned about what happened yesterday because I’ve been feeling good for a while now. Why the sudden setback? I’m drinking a lot more bottled water but that should be making me feel better, not worse! The only difference is I’ve started the acupuncture treatment and I’m only taking 1000 mg of Vitamin C instead of 2500 mg.

Around noon I’m starting to feel the internal vibration again. Although I don’t have any other symptoms, I get the feeling this is the start of the same thing that happened yesterday. I’ve known for a while that taking a Vitamin C will stop the vibrations so I take two 500 mg pills before going to lunch and it seemed to make a difference. Then I realize the recent setback maybe because I’ve reduced my vitamin C intake to 1000 mg per day.

I’m still reading Kevin Trudeau’s book and now he’s talking about how all of the food we eat is making us fat. He says over and over how he has nothing to gain from writing this book and how he’s not interested in profiting from the sales however he is constantly telling the reader to join the “Members Only” section of his web site for a monthly fee or sign up for his monthly newsletter…again for a fee.

A part of me thinks he is a scam artist and another part believes him. Today I’m reading the newspaper and I read about how the fourth quarter profits of Biovail have doubled. I skim across the page and read an article about how fluoride is bad for your teeth when for years it was added to the drinking water to prevent tooth decay. This is exactly what he is talking about.

Almost a week after the acupuncture and the stuffiness in my nose is still reduced. It’s not totally gone but it’s a noticeable difference and I’m very happy with the progress after one appointment. My allergies have been around for fifteen years and not one doctor, not one specialist, not one friend ever mentioned acupuncture for allergies.

My good friend returns my message from last week and tell me about how he was away on vacation. I ask him about his daughter’s symptoms and he says the doctors never found anything and how they determined it was stress. (Really? surprise, surprise!)

I talk with him for over an hour detailing my timeline and recent discoveries. He’s very interested and I ask him if anyone else in his house has any weird symptoms and he mentions a symptom for his wife. I look it up and it a listed symptom. It’s a general symptom but it’s listed. I also mention Kevin Trudeau’s book and what he says about electromagnetic fields. He’s heard of his infomercial but not the book.

We talk further about health in general and he mentions his Chiropractor. The doctor explained to him how he specialises in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions which are due to mechanical dysfunction of the joints and their effects on the nervous system. I told him that in Kevin Trudeau’s book one of the things he mentions about maintaining a healthy body is to see a Chiropractor once a month whether you need to or not and he agrees.

Effects on the nervous system? Isn’t that interesting? Maybe I should see a Chiropractor.

I’ve just started chapter six and I’m blown away by the things he is saying. Stop taking prescription drugs because it’s killing us. I’m not sure if I believe all of it but some of what he is saying really hits home based on my personal experience.

I mention bits and pieces from the book to my dad and he tells me the story of a recent news program where a reporter was diagnosed with breast cancer. She wasn’t a smoker, lived a healthy life and was careful with her diet. She was determined to find out the cause and after doing a lot of research, the only thing that stood out was the birth control pill. After researching the medication, she discovered that the type of pill she was taking could cause breast cancer if taken longer than five years. She took it for seven years and was mad that there was no warning on the label. NO KIDDING!!

I come across an article in the Washington Post that details of the criminal past of Kevin Trudeau.

Credit-card fraud and larceny he committed in his twenties. Pleaded guilty to depositing $80,000 in worthless checks. Pleaded guilty to obtaining and fraudulently using 11 credit cards and served close to two years in federal prison. Trudeau also misappropriated for his own use credit card numbers belonging to customers.

In prison on the West Coast, Trudeau hooked up with a fellow inmate named Jules Leib, who was in for attempted distribution of cocaine. He gave Leib some self-help books. When they got out, they went into business together, making infomercials and selling health products as distributors for an Amway-type multilevel marketing company called Nutrition for Life. Right away the trouble started.

David Bertrand, the former president of Nutrition for Life, remembers Trudeau listening to motivational tapes “incessantly.” He says Trudeau was “brilliant” and “one of the best salespeople I’ve ever known,” and recalls that in 1996 the company nearly tripled its sales in large part because of Trudeau. The man could sell because he seemed to really believe in what he was saying, Bertrand says, but he repeatedly took it too far.

Bertrand says he became concerned that Trudeau was making overly optimistic promises to potential distributors about how much profit they could make. “We had a number of conferences where we asked him to cool it,” Bertrand says. “It scared us.” At one point, Bertrand says, he learned that Trudeau had promised free trips to entice people to sign up as distributors. The trips never materialized, there were complaints, and Nutrition for Life had to step in, says Bertrand, and fund a weekend cruise for thousands of people. “At the time he made the promise he fully intended to comply,” Bertrand says. “He always intends to but he kind of gets carried away in his exuberance.”

In 1996, the state of Illinois sued Trudeau and Leib, accusing them of operating an illegal pyramid scheme.

In 1998, Trudeau paid half a million dollars to settle a Federal Trade Commission complaint that several infomercials he helped create were false and misleading.

In 2003, the FTC came after Trudeau again. The complaint and a separate contempt action centered on two products, one of which, Coral Calcium Supreme, was being billed as a cure for cancer, according to the FTC. Trudeau’s guest on the infomercial, a man named Robert Barefoot, went so far as to claim that in cultures that consume a lot of calcium, people are so healthy “they don’t even have children until they’re in their seventies when they’re mature enough to handle kids.”

Trouble in paradise…Kevin Trudeau may have a criminal past, and he may have taken my twenty seven dollars…but I do know one thing… he’s right about a lot of things and it makes a lot of sense.

He says electromagnetic waves can make us sick and I believe him. Every major illness today is not caused by bacteria or viruses, they are developed within the body. He says they are self-inflicted illnesses and doctors are only trained to treat the symptoms and not find out the root cause of the problem. You can treat the body when it has a fever but what caused the fever in the first place?

Woke up again with lot less blockage then normal. This is fantastic. It’s still blocked up but it’s progress after one appointment. Because we have a Shoppers Drug Mart near by, I thought I would use their blood pressure machine to take some readings during the day. Before I go into work, I find the machine at the back of the store and take a reading. 125/85 Normal range.

Two days into Kevin Trudeau’s book and I’m truly shocked at the things I am reading. I’m not the type of person who believes everything I read or hear and I wasn’t aware of his infomercial either so I went into this with a completely open mind.  I wasn’t really surprised at what I was reading…but it was shocking.

Shocking to discover jet rocket fuel was found in the breast milk of 100% of the women tested in a recent study. He lists hundreds of examples from the food we eat, the air we breathe and the invisible electromagnetic waves that we are in contact with everyday is killing us or making us very very sick. The one thing that a doctor can prescribe to make us better is actually making us sick too. Prescription drugs.

I took the book into work today and two people asked to borrow it after I was done. I just bought it!! My wife mentions the book to her mother and she wants a copy. I mention the findings to my dad and he says he wants a copy too. Everyone has heard of this guy and wants to know more.

Again, I drink about 2 litres of bottled water and take my blood pressure reading down at Shoppers Drug Mart before I leave for the day. 132/80 Normal range.

The blockage in my nose has decreased but I’m still vibrating…

It seemed only natural that I would eventually come across the book by Kevin Trudeau. In the first chapter he talks about his own personal experience with the health care system in America. He talks about how after extensive testing he was diagnosed with an incurable heart condition. His doctor said he would have a few years to live with many complications. Not happy with that answer he found an alternative approach and found a doctor who used a diagnostic device called the Dermatron machine. This doctor found his problem right away and told him of a natural procedure that was only available other counties. His condition was incurable in America because the FDA did not approve of the treatments but it was available in Switzerland and Mexico and it would correct the problem by rebuilding the heart.

He goes on to talk about how we have more people today with medical conditions than ever before in history. We have never had the type of computer technology available for us until now yet we NEVER hear of any diseases being cured. According the Kevin Trudeau, it’s all about the money and how the drug companies stand to make billions and billions in profit. The drug companies and a corrupt government are to blame by making us sick in the food we eat and the medical profession wants to fix everything with drugs.

He talks about how the Food and Drug Administration allows all kinds of chemicals into the food we eat to make it more addictive, to make us more hungry, to make us fatter and to increase the shelf life so it can last forever. He gives an example of a burger chain that actually adds hamburger flavor to the meat because it’s been so modified it that it doesn’t even taste like meat anymore.

The irony? We had a HUGE pot luck lunch today and everyone ate so much that we had a tonne of leftover food that remained in the lunch room for the rest of the afternoon. As someone passes by my desk I overhear them say that no matter how much they eat, they are still hungry. Too funny.

So why do the pharmaceutical companies advertise prescription drugs on television? If doctors are the only ones who are medically trained to prescribe it, why advertise? What benefit does it have to the average consumer? They want people to go to a doctor and tell them what they want whether they need it or not. Why? According the Kevin Trudeau, it’s all about the money and this is making a lot of sense but should really come as no surprise.

I find it mildly amusing that I bought his book at Shoppers Drug Mart. Canada’s biggest pharmaceutical store.

Over the past ten months I have been bounced around within the Ontario Health Care system from doctor to doctor without any one of them saying “Based on your symptoms, this is what you have.” Fed up with the entire process, my frustration led me to seek out alternative methods. My medical doctor was content from the generic testing that nothing was wrong. I rarely get sick, I never go to a doctor for a cold but I knew with absolute certainty that something was very wrong. My symptoms were weird and unusual and in most cases very mild but something was very wrong.

I could never figure out why he was happy with the test results showing normal when I still had a variety of symptoms. Wouldn’t it make sense to do more in depth testing if the results so far showed normal? If the tests aren’t showing anything, maybe you are doing the wrong type of tests! If a doctor can’t help you by prescribing drugs, they can’t really help you at all.

It’s the day after my acupuncture treatment. I wake up and notice a difference right away. I didn’t have the usual blockage in my nose that I’ve always had for fifteen years. Improvement with my sinusitis! Holy cow it’s working! I get up, drink the warm water, eat my oatmeal and it’s off to work.

I have this weird sensation in my head for most of the day. Nothing like any of my symptoms before so I figure it’s just a side effect from the acupuncture. The doctor did mention to document anything unusual.

I’ve taken my new Vitamin C and I drink about 2 litres of bottled water throughout the day.

Recently I have been feeling good about my symptoms but the past few days I’ve had a very very mild pain in my chest that comes and goes and a few moments of extremely mild shortness of breath. I figure it’s nothing to worry about because I’ve mentioned these symptoms to my doctor before and he wasn’t concerned. The pain was so mild I felt stupid even mentioning it to anyone. My body is still recovering so I forget about it.

I was in Shoppers Drug Mart today and a friend of mine pointed out the book by Kevin Trudeau “Natural Cures They Don’t Want You To Know About”. We had been talking about his book for a while now. So I pick it up and start reading…I then remember this was the same book I was reading in the naturopath’s office back in September. I flip through the pages and start reading a random page in which he says:

“No matter what disease or illness you have , one of, or a combination of, these four things cause it:

  1. Toxins in your body
  2. Nutritional deficiencies
  3. Exposure to electricmagnetic chaos
  4. Mental and/or emotional stress

Exposure to electricmagnetic chaos? I grabbed the book and I was sold.

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…
