Your test results are color coded for ease of analysis:Yellow = values are outside the healthy range but still within the clinical rangeRed = values are outside the clinical rangeBlue = values extremely higher or lower than the clinical range limits.
INTERPRETING BLOOD LAB RESULTSOn the blood test results page found later in the report, you'll notice two columns on the right side of the page labeled "Healthy Range" and "Clinical Range". The clinical range is used by the medical community. Any values outside this range are indicative of a disease process. The healthy range is more narrow than the clinical range. Test values outside of the healthy range indicate results which are not as good as they should be. The tighter guidelines of the healthy range allows us to see signs of any developing diseases/conditions. INTERPRETING HAIR LAB RESULTSThe hair analysis screening is looking for essential, nonessential and potentially toxic elements. These elements are irreversibly incorporated into growing hair. The amount of each element found in the hair is proportional to levels in other body tissues. This makes the hair analysis a suitable indirect screening for physiological excess, deficiency or maldistribution of elements in the body. All screening tests have limitations which must be taken into consideration. Scalp hair is vulnerable to external contamination by water, hair treatments and other products. The data provided by a hair analysis should be considered in conjunction with symptoms, diet analysis, occupation and lifestyle, water source, physical examination and the results of other laboratory tests. However, accepting these limitations, hair analysis can provide useful insights into the toxic load and biochemical condition of the body.
For each elevated toxic element in the hair, the most common sources of exposure are listed in The information in this report has not been evaluated by the FDA and is not intended to treat, cure or prevent any disease.
the report. Due to pollution, our industrial culture and other environmental factors, it is impossible to completely eliminate your exposure to some toxic elements. However by knowing the sources of toxins elevated in your body, you can work to reduce your exposure, thus lessening the total toxic burden on your body. DIAGNOSTIC FINDINGS
Total Cholesterol:
HDL Cholesterol:
LDL Cholesterol:
VLDL Cholesterol:
Coronary Risk Assessment:
Probably Protected
The coronary risk is determined by taking the total cholesterol and dividing it by the HDL. To reduce your risk of cardiovascular problems a value below 4 is recommended. The Total Cholesterol is determined by adding the HDL, LDL, and VLDL together. Recent studies have shown a correlation between a high HDL and longevity. Think of HDL as the healthy cholesterol and generally the higher the better. LDL is the bad cholesterol, as it tends to plug the arteries. The VLDL is the very worst cholesterol and is more like sludge. Lower is better for the LDL and VLDL in determining coronary risk and overall health. DIABETESThe Glucose and Hemoglobin A1-C are high. The Hemoglobin A1-C indicates diabetes and the severity of diabetes. At this time, with the recommended vitamins and the Category 2 Diabetic Diet (found later in this report), the body should be able to regulate the glucose better to the point that the need for medication can be avoided or at least reduced. WARNING: If you are on medication for diabetes, you should not stop your medication without contacting the doctor. Be sure and get retested. Significant change can occur within days.

Presenting symptoms -
Nutrients Recommended:
Glucoset • Opti EPA 500mg • Vital Trace Minerals GASTRO/INTESTINAL DYSFUNCTIONThe Chloride is low and the Calcium, Protein, Albumin and Globulin are a little low. This is most likely due to poor digestion and/or low protein/ high carbohydrate diet and seen in edema, malnutrition, and malabsorption. Digestive enzymes may be of benefit. Albumin, a type of protein, is very important in healing and repair. Eggs and Chlorella are good sources of Albumin and Protein. Globulin, a type of protein, is important for a strong immune system and to fight disease. Chloride is a key element for proper digestion and overhydration, which is not very common, can lower Chloride levels. Many drugs or medications can contribute toward or cause these findings. One out of every four bites of food you eat (25%) should be of a protein source, preferably more plant based protein such as seeds, nuts, beans and sprouts. Eggs and even some fish, chicken, turkey and possibly small amounts of red meat may be beneficial.

THYROID CONSIDERATIONSThe T4 thyroxine and T7 are high, the T3 Uptake is optimal and the TSH is low. These findings are a little unusual unless thyroid medication is involved. Most thyroid medications are T4 (Thyroxine) which would account for the T4 being high. If medication is involved it will suppress pituitary function resulting in the low TSH. Taking the recommended nutrients for the thyroid may alter the need or dosage of thyroid medication.
Note: If thyroid medication is being used due to thyroid cancer, Grave's disease or similar thyroid pathology that has resulted in elimination of all natural thyroid tissue then no supplementation of vitamins, iodine or glandulars is recommended.

ANEMIAThe Ferritin is low. Ferritin indicates the level of iron reserves, which are depleted. The Serum Iron is a little low, which indicates the available iron for the body to produce Red Blood Cells. The information in this report has not been evaluated by the FDA and is not intended to treat, cure or prevent any disease.
The Red Blood Count is a little high, which is a little unusual with these other findings and the Hemoglobin and Hematocrit are a little low. This is still anemia. The ability to transport oxygen and other nutrients will be reduced. This will affect the immune system and the ability to heal and repair. This could be the result of blood loss.

Medications Taken -
Lipitor • Prilosec • Naproxen Oral • Zetia • Acetaminophen POSSIBLE INFECTION AND/OR INFLAMMATIONThe Erythrocyte Sed Rate (ESR) is a little high and the C-Reactive Protein (CRP) is high, which indicates nonspecific tissue injury and inflammation. It doesn't tell where, just that there is a problem and these values are good to monitor response to treatment.
NOTE: Recent studies have shown that the CRP is one of the best markers for predicting the chances of a having heart attack or stroke. A CRP close to zero is desired.
The White Blood Count (WBC) and Platelets are a little low and the Polys (Neutrophils) are a little high. Bacterial and viral infections, cancer and many other conditions will most commonly elevate WBC's and Polys initially, with more severe problems or chronic infections the WBC's and Polys (neutrophil) reserves and productive capacity of bone marrow may be incapable of keeping up with demand resulting in lower and lower WBC's and Polys (althought the Polys are currently sufficient) indicating a weakening immune system and slower healing. This could be a sign of a more serious condition developing. The Platelets at this level likely support the finding of chronic infection.

The MCHC is a little high. MCHC is the concentration of hemoglobin in the average red cell. The body is producing new red blood cells and at this level is not that significant.
The Triglyceride/HDL Cholesterol Ratio is optimal. Recent studies have shown that the ratio of triglycerides to HDL was the strongest predictor of a heart attack. In adults, the triglyceride/HDL ratio should be below 2.
The Glomerular Filtration Rate Estimated (eGFR) is optimal. The eGFR is a calculated estimate of the actual glomerular filtration rate and is based on your serum Creatinine concentration. The calculation uses formulas that may also include your age, gender, height, and weight. In some formulas, race may also be used in the calculation. The kidneys filter blood and help control blood pressure. They remove waste and water and produce urine. eGFR is one of the best tests to indicate how healthy your kidneys are. It is important to know your eGFR because one may not be able to feel kidney damage. Over 59-preferred35 to 58-early kidney damage16 to 34-moderate kidney damage1 to 15 severe kidney damage* Please note that if your test result is less than 15, dialysis or transplant may be needed soon.

Nutrients Recommended:
VERY LOW HAIR CHROMIUMThe chromium level in the hair is very low. Chromium is very important in carbohydrate and glucose metabolism and in the mechanism of insulin action. Basically, this mineral is very important for hypoglycemics and diabetics. Depletion can result in reduced metabolism of amino acids, glucose and lipid metabolism. It is also associated with protein malnutrition, elevated cholesterol levels, atherosclerosis and corneal damage.
Nutrients Recommended:
HIGH HAIR ARSENICThe arsenic level in the hair is high. Chronic arsenic exposure is known to cause: bone marrow depression; leukopenia; normochromic anemia; exfoliation and pigmentation of skin; neurological symptoms; polyneuritis; altered hematopoiesis; liver degeneration; kidney The information in this report has not been evaluated by the FDA and is not intended to treat, cure or prevent any disease.
degeneration; skin cancer; cancers of the respiratory tract; agitation; learning impairment; and confusion. Delayed toxicity symptoms include abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, hematuria, and jaundice. Ingestion of relatively large amounts of soluble arsenic compounds, especially on an empty stomach, affect the myocardium, causing death within a few hours. Ingesting smaller amounts of arsenic can cause epigastric pain, vomiting and diarrhea, followed by inflammation of the conjunctiva and respiratory mucous membranes, epitaxis, transient jaundice, cardiomyopathy, erythematous or visceral rashes, and sweating. Other symptoms: malaise; muscle weakness; eczema; dermatitis; increased salivation; strong "garlic breath", alopecia totalis, vomiting, diarrhea and skin cancer. Hematological, renal, or pancreatic dysfunction may be observed. Symptoms of neuropathy are experienced typically appear as with tingling and paresthesia in the extremities. Proteinuria and methemoglobinemia are frequently observed, causing renal failure and death. Arsenic can be absorbed by the human body through the respiratory and gastrointestinal tracts and through the skin. Arsenic is found in tobacco smoke and is a suspected causative factor in lung cancer. Metal smelting and the production of glass, ceramics, insecticides, fungicides and herbicides mobilize environmental arsenic. Drinking water may also be a source of arsenic, and the use of arsenic-containing paints is a known source of arsenic poisoning. Elevated hair levels are seen long before acute clinical signs of arsenic toxicity are obvious.
Therapeutic consideration for chronic overexposure: antioxidant therapy, especially ascorbic acid or calcium ascorbate, vitamin E (all tocopherols), increased intake of sulfur-containing amino acids, vitamin B6. Note: Arsenic suppresses iodine and selenium. Research: the relationship between cognitive functions and hair mineral concentrations of lead, arsenic, cadmium, and aluminum was examined for a random selection of 69 children. The data obtained showed a significant correlation between reading and writing skill and elevated arsenic levels, as well as interaction between arsenic and lead. Children with reduced visual-motor skills, had clearly elevated aluminum and lead levels.
Nutrients Recommended:
Calcium MCHC 250mg • Chlorella Clean 250mg • Nutri E 400IU Forte • Pwdr Vit C 4000mg w/ Ribose • Stress B Plus HIGH HAIR CADMIUMThe cadmium level in the hair is high. Cadmium (Cd) is a toxic, heavy metal with no positive metabolic function in the body. It is relatively rare but it is more toxic than lead. Hair cadmium levels provide an excellent indication of body burden. Moderately high cadmium levels are consistent with hypertension, while very severe cadmium toxicity can cause hypotension. Recent studies have shown associations with cadmium and tumors of the lung, kidney, breast and prostate.
Cadmium also affects the kidneys, lungs, testes, arterial walls, and bones. It interferes with many enzymatic systems, leads to anemia, proteinuria and glucosurea and depletes glutathione, calcium, phosphorus and zinc. Cadmium absorption is reduced by zinc, calcium and selenium. Alkaline phosphatase is commonly elevated with cadmium toxicity. One of the things that you should do to help your overall long-term health is to reduce your cadmium intake. The most common sources of cadmium are: refined foods (white flour, white sugar, etc.), acid drinks left in galvanized pails or ice trays, superphosphate fertilizers, gluten flour, some cola drinks, tap water, atmospheric pollution in the burning of coal and petroleum products, seafood, plastic water pipes, margarine, canned fruits and beverages, sugar and molasses, alcoholic drinks, cigarette smoke, zinc smelters, cadmium plating used in soft drink dispensing machines. Cadmium toxicity is common among welders and construction workers (cement dust).
Contamination may come from perms, dyes, bleach and some hair sprays, and can cause false highs for cadmium.
Symptoms of Contamination: hypertension; fatigue; muscle and joint pain/osteomalacia; anemia; The information in this report has not been evaluated by the FDA and is not intended to treat, cure or prevent any disease.
lumbar pain; learning disabilities, dyslexia, delinquency, schizophrenia, high anxiety, atherosclerosis; kidney damage with associated urinary loss of essential minerals, amino acids and protein.
Nutrients Recommended:
Calcium MCHC 250mg • Chlorella Clean 250mg HIGH HAIR LEADThe lead level in the hair is high. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) reports the following symptoms as those frequently seen in exposed children: abdominal pain; colics; severe and repeated vomiting; irritability; hyperactivity; anorexia; loss of appetite; ataxia; mental disturbances. In advanced stage: mental retardation; learning disability; speech disturbances; stupor or fatigue; intermittent fever; dehydration; constipation; diarrhea; nausea; altered sleep; epileptic seizures; headaches; poor memory; inability to concentrate; ADD/ADHD; aberrant behavior; decreased coordination; irritability; pain in abdomen; bones and muscles; gout; anemia.
Physiologically, the renal, nervous, reproductive, endocrine, immune, and hemopoietic systems are affected. Sub-toxic oral exposure to lead and cadmium increases the susceptibility to bacterial and viral infections.
Other symptoms associated with the early stages of lead intoxication are: headaches; vertigo; tremor; joint pain; neuritis; general mental symptoms, psychoneurosesSymptoms of acute intoxication include: colic; loss of muscle strength; muscle tenderness; paresthesia; signs of neuropathy. Lead is known to damage the kidney, the liver, and the reproductive system, as well as to interfere with bone marrow function, basic cellular processes and brain functions. It is known to be responsible for convulsions; abdominal pain; paralysis; temporary blindness; extreme pallor; loss of weight and appetite; constipation and numerous other problems.
Lead causes nerve and mental problems, especially affecting learning ability in children. It was reported that the IQs of middle-class children dropped five to seven points after lead exposure, and Moon, et. al., demonstrated that lead levels also related to decreased visual and motor performance.
Therapeutic considerations: mild lead exposure can be treated successfully with oral chelating agents, targeted mineral therapy and dietary measures. The following should be considered: lead displaced calcium. In the case of calcium deficiency, lead is more readily deposited in tissues. Increases in phosphorus intake, vitamin C, vitamin B-complex, pectin, vitamin E, vitamins A and C, and chromium can avoid cellular damage and reduce lead levels; Inadequate vitamin D intake facilitates the absorption of lead.
Common sources of lead:lead based paints; older homes; crystal; ceramics; canned food; food crops; water contamination.
Nutrients Recommended:
Calcium MCHC 250mg • Chlorella Clean 250mg • Pwdr Vit C 4000mg w/ Ribose • Stress B Plus • Vital Trace Minerals HIGH HAIR MERCURYThe mercury level in the hair is high. Mercury (Hg) is a toxic element for humans and animals. Hair mercury level is an accurate indicator of mercury body burden. A considerable variance in the sensitivity of different individuals to mercury has been observed, with some exhibiting symptoms at 3 to 5 ppm. Even very low levels of mercury have been found to suppress biological selenium activity. After dental amalgams are used, elevated hair mercury may be observed for six months to over a year. Hair mercury has been found to correlate with acute myocardial infarction where on average a 1 ppm mercury was found to correlate with a 9 percent The information in this report has not been evaluated by the FDA and is not intended to treat, cure or prevent any disease.
increase in acute myocardial infarction risk. Mercury displaces selenium (which is a major anti-oxidant), zinc (protein, DNA and energy metabolism) and copper. Supplementation of magnesium, zinc, calcium, selenium, and manganese has been shown to be beneficial in relieving mercury loads.
Symptoms of acute contamination: metallic taste, thirst, discoloration and edema of oral mucosa, burning mouth pain, salivation, abdominal pain, vomiting, bloody diarrhea, severe gastroenteritis, colitis, nephrosis, anuria, uremia, shock. Symptoms of chronic contamination: gingivitis; weakness; ataxia; intention tremors; chronic fatigue (caused by inhibition of thyroid conversion of T4 to T3); depression; poor memory and cognitive function; learning disabilities; behavioral disorders; emotional instability; speech impairment, irritability; peripheral numbness, tingling or neuropathy; sleep disturbance; decreased senses of touch, hearing or vision; hypersensitivity and allergies; persistent infections including chronic yeast overgrowth; compromised immune function; cardiovascular disease. It disrupts intracellular transport in neurons and can decrease the production of neurotransmitters. Eventually this can lead to autoimmune diseases such as SLE (systemic lupus erythematosis), myelinopathies such as MS and myasthenia gravis, rheumatoid arthritis, MCS (multiple chemical sensitivity), and chronic candidiasis. An inverse relationship has been observed between hair mercury levels and intelligence scores in elementary school children. Other sources of mercury are: large fish, pesticide residues, mercurial fungicides on seed grains, dental fillings, coal burning, calomel (mercurous chloride), interior paints, pharmaceuticals, the manufacture of paper, pulp and plastic products, and water.
Nutrients Recommended:
Chlorella Clean 250mg • Pwdr Vit C 4000mg w/ Ribose • Vital Trace Minerals NOTED HAIR VALUESThe selenium level in the hair is high. This is most often from external exposure, such as to dandruff shampoos. Toxicity can cause interference in the metabolism of sulfur-bearing amino acids, structural changes and red pigmentation of the hair and nails, garlic breath, metallic taste in the mouth, discoloration of teeth and skin, and gastroenteritis. High hair selenium is an accurate indicator of high serum levels.
The barium level in the hair is a little high. Barium compounds are found in soaps, ceramics, paper, glass, plastics, textiles, dyes, fuel additives, rubber, paint and pesticides. Barium toxicity can cause vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, muscular and myocardial stimulation, tingling in the extremities, and loss of tendon reflexes.
The germanium level in the hair is high. This does not necessarily correlate with high levels of serum germanium.
The aluminum level in the hair is a little high. Any aluminum is too much. Aluminum toxicity is associated with Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease, behavioral/learning disorders such as ADD, ADHD and autism. Aluminum has neurotoxic effects at high levels, but low levels of accumulation may not elicit immediate symptoms. Early symptoms of aluminum burden may include fatigue, headache, and other symptoms. Aluminum is a heavy metal that displaces your other good minerals, such as magnesium, calcium, zinc and phosphorus. One of the things that you should do to help your overall long-term health is to reduce your aluminum intake. The most common sources of aluminum to avoid are: antiperspirants, aluminum cookware, antacids, some baking sodas, baking powder, some breath mints, pickles, some skin lotion, some cosmetics, aluminum foil, canned goods, emulsifiers in some processed cheese, table salt - anti-caking compound, bleaching agent used in white flour, buffered aspirin, some toothpaste, dental amalgams, cigarette filters, and drinking water (tap water). Do not eat or drink anything that The information in this report has not been evaluated by the FDA and is not intended to treat, cure or prevent any disease.
comes in a can. Read your labels before you purchase. Aluminum has also been found in a granola bar.
Aluminum rods are commonly used in hot water tanks in area of acidic water. These rods will dissolve neutralizing the water, thus protecting the hot water tank. A rod of magnesium is an option for the same purpose.
Note: Fluoride and fluoridation increases the absorption of aluminum.
Chlorella and magnesium with malic acid have been reported to be quite effective in lowering aluminum.
The sulfur level in the hair is a little low. The mineral sulfur is needed for the manufacture of many proteins, including those forming hair, muscles, and skin. Sulfur contributes to fat digestion and absorption, because it is needed to make bile acids. Sulfur is also a constituent of bones, teeth, and collagen (the protein in connective tissue). As a component of insulin, sulfur is needed to regulate blood sugar. Most dietary sulfur is consumed as part of certain amino acids in protein-rich foods. Meat and poultry, organ meats, fish, eggs, beans, and dairy products are all good sources of sulfur-containing amino acids. Sulfur also occurs in garlic and onions.
Nutrients Recommended:
Calcium MCHC 250mg • Chlorella Clean 250mg • MagMalic • Multiple Vitamin • Vital Trace Minerals To help get these heavy metals out of your system, which is very important, Chlorella is recommended. Magnesium and selenium, are both very important in getting these toxic metals through the kidneys. Chlorella and cilantro have the unique ability to actually get these heavy metals out of brain, liver, heart, and lung tissue. Adding fresh cilantro to the diet is also recommended. Cilantro is an herb that can be found in most supermarkets. Chop it up and add it to salads, sauces, etc. Since we are constantly being exposed to heavy metals in our society, it is recommend that even after you are feeling better that you continue with the chlorella.

DIET FOCUSFood can be broken down into basically two categories: 1. Energy (calories from fat, carbohydrates and protein) 2. Nourishment (the nutrient density of the food; vitamin and mineral content). When planning your meals, use this thought process: 1. Get at least 2 vegetables with each meal. Fruit should be limited only if you have glucose handling issues. However, always consume more vegetables than fruits.
2. Proteins: 25-35% of the meal needs to be of a protein source.
Focus on good quality protein and not the processed protein bars, drinks, and powders. Most desirable proteins: meats (like chicken, fish, turkey and even red meat), eggs, beans, seeds, nuts, sprouts, quinoa, nut butters (ie. peanut butter, cashew butter, almond butter).
Eliminate these least desirable proteins: processed soy, processed dairy, pork, processed luncheon meats (those that contain "nitrates" or "nitrites").
Search Google "USDA SR 21" for a downloadable database to look up nutritional content of foods.
3. Carbohydrates: 40-60% of your meal needs to be carbohydrate.

IDENTIFYING LOW NUTRIENT DENSE FOODSBelow is a list of foods and items that will help you identify low nutrient dense foods and cooking/storage processes that lower the nutrient density in foods. These are strongly recommended you avoid. READ YOUR INGREDIENT LABELS!! Later in your report, you will find exchanges for these items and helpful hints for implementing these lifestyle habits.
1. Artificial Sweeteners: "aspartame", "saccharin", "sucralose", "acesulfame potassium", "sorbitol", "maltitol", etc.
2. Flavor Enhancers and Preservatives: "MSG", "monosodium glutamate", "nitrate" or "nitrite" ingredients found in many dressings, sauces, Chinese foods, processed meats, pork products, bologna, some wieners, and many luncheon meat. HVP (hydrolyzed vegetable protein) and processed soy proteins can contain up to 40% MSG. 3. Artificial colors and dyes: look for terms such as "FD&C", "lake", "red", "yellow", etc. Read your supplement labels carefully.
4. Canned Foods and Drinks: choose fresh or frozen varieties. Limit canned food consumption to canned beans and tuna. Foods stored in glass are acceptable.
5. Microwave Cooking and Deep Frying lower the nutrient density more so than stove top cooking.
6. Artificial Fats: "hydrogenated" [a.k.a. "trans fat"] and "interesterified" fats are found in margarine, many pre-packaged foods, supplements, and dressings; avoid "Olestra" containing products.
7. Refined Carbohydrates: processed foods such as white sugar, white flour, corn syrup, "enriched" foods, etc.

13. Chlorine and Fluoride Sources: tap water, heavy chlorine exposure in swimming pools, fluoride toothpaste, fluoride supplements, fluoride mouthwash, etc.
DIABETIC RECOMMENDATIONS 1. Avoid all fruit juices. 2. Eat only one fruit and at least four fresh vegetables per day. 3. Eat a snack every hour and a half to two hours. Eat by the clock. This is going to help take stress off your liver and maintain your glucose at a good level so it doesn't fluctuate so much. The snack should be 4 to 5 bites of a complex carbohydrate, protein or foods that have healthy fats in them such as: sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, nuts, carrots with hummus or a few bites of chicken would be fine to eat. 4. Do this for at least the next two months or until your evaluation. The information in this report has not been evaluated by the FDA and is not intended to treat, cure or prevent any disease.
AEROBIC EXERCISEExamples of aerobic exercise are jogging, cycling, elliptical trainer, fast-paced walking, etc. It is recommended that you build up to at least 40 minutes a day. If at first you do not have the energy to exercise this much, it is recommended that you start slowly by exercising 10 minutes two or three times a day until you can gradually build up to 40 minutes a day.
STRENGTH TRAININGIf you are not currently on a weight training program, a muscle building exercise (i.e. step exercise) 10 minutes a day is encouraged. If at first you do not have the energy or physical ability to perform this exercise, it is recommended that you start slowly by setting a goal to do this exercise 2 minutes two or three times a day until you can gradually build up to 10 minutes a day.
WATER CONSUMPTIONDrink 1 quart of clean, filtered water per 50lbs of body weight per day. Do not go over 3 quarts regardless of your weight. More water might be necessary depending on exercise, environment and perspiration. We recommend using a multiple filtration system for your drinking and cooking water. There are several types of these, which include reverse osmosis. Distilled water is not recommended. Since distilled water has little or no mineral content, it acts like a vacuum that can actually leach minerals from your system.
A word of caution - anytime you make drastic changes in diet, vitamin intake, or exercise,
realize that you may feel somewhat worse before you feel better.
It doesn't happen often,
but as your body detoxifies, you may feel worse if it occurs too fast. If you do feel worse, don't
panic, it will pass in a few days. If this problem does occur, take half of what is recommended for
three days and slowly over two weeks progress to taking the complete program.
Everything that has been recommended is very important and many of these things work together. In order to get the most effective results, it is important that you follow the program exactly as outlined. Following the diet may not be easy, but if you do, you will get the best outcome. Likewise, if you don't take the vitamins, or only take part of them, you may not see the expected results. Many people with some very serious problems have been helped using this program. The purpose of this analysis is to benefit you. This is for your well being, so please do the program as recommended so that you will achieve the best results.
Attached is a list of vitamins that have been carefully selected for your specific problems. These vitamins are recommended because they are of the highest quality. Occasionally, you will hear rumors regarding vitamin toxicity. Rest assured that these issues have been researched and the risk of significant side effects is extremely low. Historical data and experience have shown these vitamins, along with the dietary changes, to be the best in helping you achieve the necessary improvements needed on your test results.
Please keep this report for future reference and bring it with you to your next evaluation.
