Hair scan­ning helps to­ward op­ti­mum good health

The Tribune (NZ) - - YOUR BODY -

How’s your nutri­tion?

In just 15 min­utes, you can make bet­ter nu­tri­tional, lifestyle and en­vi­ron­men­tal choices with a hair fol­li­cle scan at Health 2000.

The fac­tors of mod­ern liv­ing can af­fect your body’s un­der­ly­ing well­ness. These in­clude foods eaten, nu­tri­ents ab­sorbed, and en­vi­ron­men­tal in­flu­ences at home or work.

Hair is an amaz­ing, al­most in­de­struc­tible bio-marker that car­ries a lot of this per­sonal in­for­ma­tion. No mat­ter the length of your hair, or if you’ve coloured it, hair fol­li­cles store six years’ worth of epi­ge­netic in­for­ma­tion.

Epi­ge­net­ics are the non-ge­netic in­flu­ences on gene ex­pres­sion. This means the nu­tri­tional, lifestyle and en­vi­ron­men­tal fac­tors of mod­ern liv­ing that af­fect your body’s un­der­ly­ing well­ness. These in­clude foods eaten, nu­tri­ents ab­sorbed, and en­vi­ron­men­tal in­flu­ences at home or work.

There­fore, hair fol­li­cle scan­ning can pro­vide you with con­sid­er­a­tions to help you achieve op­ti­mum well­ness.

Hair scan­ning is com­pleted by a natur­opath or trained Health 2000 staff mem­ber who takes four fol­li­cles of your hair and then dig­i­tally pro­cesses them on a scan­ner. The data is then sent via a se­cure in­ter­net con­nec­tion to servers in Ham­burg, Ger­many. There, the pow­er­ful su­per­com­puter sys­tems cre­ate the charts and ta­bles which make up the re­port and 90-day plan.

Af­ter 15 min­utes the per­son­alised ‘Op­ti­mise Well­ness’ 90-day nu­tri­tional re­port is re­turned, and the staff mem­ber goes through its con­tents with you.

The re­port con­tains ta­bles and charts to make the in­for­ma­tion un­der­stand­able. It in­cludes nine well­ness cat­e­gories cov­er­ing more than 800 in­di­vid­ual in­flu­ences; a list of foods and ad­di­tives to in­crease, add or avoid for 90 days; a 90-day plan, in­clud­ing nu­tri­ents, wa­ter and lifestyle fac­tors; self­check sheets to help you keep track of progress; and sup­port­ing in­for­ma­tion on all cat­e­gories.

Epi­ge­netic in­di­ca­tors like vi­ta­mins, min­er­als, amino acids and fre­quency in­ter­fer­ence are mapped in the re­port and ranked by rel­e­vancy.

This makes it easy to iden­tify your pri­or­i­ties and fol­low the nu­tri­tional sug­ges­tions.

Hair fol­li­cle anal­y­sis can re­veal your per­sonal well­ness.
