body requires adequate, but not excessive, amounts of trace minerals
and nutrients for proper functioning. Under certain conditions,
excesses or deficiencies of many of these elements can set off symptoms
Subnormal levels of zinc, for example, are associated with treatment
resistant depression.1 And
deficiencies of magnesium can provoke
a wide range of psychiatric symptoms
related to depression, ranging from apathy
to psychosis.2 Research
on manic patients, on the other hand,
has revealed elevated vanadium in the
hair--significantly higher levels than
those measured in both a control group
and a group of recovered manic patients.3
Repeated exposure to pollutants in the
food and environment can result in accumulation
of toxins such as lead, mercury, and
aluminum inside the body. One possible
source of exposure is dental fillings
made from amalgam, which contains mercury.
Norwegian researchers found that 47%
of patients with dental amalgam fillings
reported suffering from major depression,
compared to 14% in the dental control
to other toxins, such as lead, can also
elicit symptoms of depression.5
Analysis measures levels of toxic and nutrient
elements in the body using a hair sample. Each specimen
type provides a unique window on element status.
