Exciting announcement that we are now able to measure tissue levels of heavy metals! It’s a machine called the OligoScan and it was developed in France and is used throughout the world. We are the only place offering it in Minnesota.
What are Heavy Metals?
The OligoScan measures 14 different heavy metals: Aluminum, antimony, arsenic, cadmium, mercury, nickel, lead, and more. Our bodies can hold a certain amount of heavy metals but they create health problems when they build up to high levels.
What Health Problems?
Autoimmunity, mood and hormone problems, thyroid and adrenal dysfunction, resistant weight loss, tinnitis, parasite overload, candida and yeast overgrowth, digestive problems, cancer, dementia, Alzheimer’s, ADD/ADHD, autism, lack of energy, and much more.
Heavy metal toxicity is almost never considered when people go to a health provider for help with the above issues… yet it is often the upstream cause. It can work temporarily to give thyroid medication, or adrenal supplements, or do gut healing…… but people often find their issue does not completely resolve until they get to the ultimate cause.
It’s helpful to know if heavy metals are an issue for you or not… and the only way to know is to measure them. The available heavy metal testing has mainly consisted of serum levels, urine levels, and hair analysis. To get an accurate picture you must do all 3. Serum measures recent exposure. After a few days the metals migrate into your tissues and are no longer detected in your blood. Hair will show excretion of metals in the last 3 months… and urine shows what you are excreting following a challenge test.
The OligoScan measures tissue heavy metal status using spectrophotometry. No blood draws, no cutting hair, and no waiting weeks for results. It’s the metals in your tissues that give an accurate picture of your overall heavy metal status.
Once you know which metals are excessive (if any), you can get to work on doing the appropriate detoxification. We have a class Saturday mornings (free class) where you can learn more about heavy metals and toxicity. You’ll learn why it’s important to detoxify at the cell level…… and not stop at doing only a colon cleanse, or liver cleanse… or juice cleanse. Not that those are bad… it’s just that they don’t reach far enough into the cellular level to remove the toxins. If you have high levels of mercury or lead (or something else) you need to work more effectively than a short 2-3 week cleanse to significantly reduce your heavy metal load.
And you want to do it safely…. right?

Why would we do this?
The world is changing rapidly in multiple ways. So much progress with technology that’s opened our communication and opportunities for learning and growth. But at the same time, too many toxins are being dumped into our air, water, food, soil, building materials, furniture, and more. People are getting more chronic health conditions that are straining our medical system and making it impossible to have a happy, productive, engaging, and fun life.
It used to be that we could rely on our body’s already present detoxification systems. But our bodies are now overloaded and unable to keep up. Lucky for us, we have technology to help us get rid of excess toxins and allow our bodies to heal themselves. We may not have this chance in the future… but we have it now.
