The revolutionary method to detect directly in the office and in real-time, the bioavailability of trace elements and heavy metal intoxication.
“You can trace every sickness, every disease, and every ailment to a mineral deficiency,”
Dr. Linus Pauling, Stanford University; winner of two Nobel Prizes
Every life supporting system in your body depends on one or more minerals to function properly. Minerals are required for:
- Protein synthesis
- Enzyme function
- Immune response
- Thyroid hormone synthesis, hormone function and energy production
- Red blood cell production and oxygen transport
- Antioxidant protection
- Glutathione production and detoxification
- Vitamin utilization
99% of the American people are deficient in minerals, and a marked deficiency in any of these important minerals may result in disease. Out physical well-being is more directly dependent upon the minerals we take into our systems than upon calories or vitamins, or upon precise proportions of starch, protein or carbohydrates we consume.
Chronic low energy, aches, pains, recurrent colds, moodiness and sleep disturbance are common signs of unwellness and doctors often find normal blood tests. Elderly Americans are especially vulnerable to mineral deficiencies. One study showed that 85% of nursing home residents are malnourished and depleted in key minerals and vitamins.
Now there is a revolutionary new diagnostic tool for quickly assessing essential minerals and toxic heavy metals, such as mercury, lead and aluminum. The OligoScan spectrophotometric technology offers a quick and precise analysis of the trace elements and heavy metals in the tissues of the body.
The measurement is made directly in the office with a portable spectrophotometer device approved by OligoScan. The collected data from the patient is sent to the secure central Oligoscan server within a few clicks. And within 20 seconds, you get the results back.
This test measures the minerals in the tissues of the body and provides immediate results. There is no wait for expensive blood or urine tests that may take weeks to come back. The test allows you to know the most efficient supplementation that would maximize the nutritional benefits for mind and body. In case of heavy metal toxicity, you can use detoxification techniques, supplements and/or lifestyle changes. And, efficient mobilization is easily discernible with the Oligoscan.
OligoScan is the most innovative testing methodology with the fastest turn around of results available anywhere in the world. The technology is an invaluable screening tool for actual tissue levels of minerals as opposed to other testing which is only indicative of what is being pulled out of that particular vector. Together with the urine, fecal, hair and blood measurements, the Oligoscan result transforms the information you have analogous to a 2 dimensional picture and turns it into a 3 dimensional holographic projection within which you can now practically interact.
The data is invaluable and allows for precise treatment and prevention, which can be monitored over time. Test results show mineral status, key mineral ratios, heavy metal levels, mobilization of those metals and overall oxidative stress.
The OligoScan technology utilizes spectrophotometry to obtain results on the amount of trace elements and heavy metals exist within tissue, calibrated specifically for a specific area of the body.
This is a quantitative analytical methodology, which consists in measuring the absorbance level or the optical density of a specific chemical or mineral substance.
The basic principle is that every type of compound, regardless if it is chemical or mineral based, absorbs, emits or reflects light (electromagnetic radiation) over a certain specific range of wavelengths.
The more the sample is concentrated, the more it absorbs the light within the limits of proportionality expressed in the law Beer-Lambert.
The spectrophotometry is used in many domains: chemistry, pharmacy, environment, food-processing industry, biology, medical /clinical, material/chemical engineering and clinical applications and many others.
The negative health impact of heavy metals is demonstrated by numerous studies published by research institutes, WHO, FAO and other organizations.
The massive exposure to these toxic agents becomes a real public danger. Transported by the pollution of the air, the earth and water (ground waters and sea water), heavy metals pollute the human body either directly by contact or indirectly through the food chain.
Some of these substances are also in products, which are in touch with the body. The institutions for sanitary issues consider that there are almost no more places in the world which are not concerned by this problem.
The elimination of these toxic metals from the body is a major challenge.
Furthermore, scientific studies alert us on another plan. They point out the dramatic depletion of nutrients in food, accompanied with an increase of food additives which cause various problems in the body.
An individualized supplementation favors the optimized functioning of the body and represents, in this context of decrease of nutritional density and quality of food, a main advantage to stay healthy.
Concerning the measuring method of OligoScan, the spectrophotometry is used in numerous scientific and industrial processes. Comparative studies of the OligoScan test results with traditional biological analysis show a correlation in the expected standards.
