the enormous amounts of toxic metal in the environment and wide-spread
nutrient deficiencies, assessing chronic fatigue patients for element
imbalances and excesses has become increasingly important.
Abundant research shows that overexposure to toxins like lead, mercury,
and cadmium often elicits symptoms of fatigue.1-5 What's
more, many people are exposed to these
elements on a daily basis, through cigarette
smoke (cadmium), hydrogenated cooking
oils and margarine (nickel), antiperspirants
and antacids (aluminum), some toothpastes
and cans (tin), tap water (lead, aluminum),
tooth fillings and fish (mercury).
Since the body cannot process large amounts
of these toxins, they can accumulate
inside of various organs and tissues,
accompanied by symptoms of increasing
exhaustion and fatigue. Nutritional deficiencies
can compound the problem--low levels
of magnesium, for example, have been
correlated with lethargy and fatigue
in many CFS patients.6 Another
recent study concluded that the balance
between zinc and magnesium is strongly
implicated in fatigue mechanisms.7
Analysis (Hair) determines levels of toxic
and nutritional elements in the body using a hair, blood,
or urine sample. Each specimen type provides a unique
window on element status. A hair sample, for example,
will reflect chronic toxic exposure and long-term nutritional
deficiencies, while blood and urine assessment will gauge
the effects of more recent imbalances.
