OligoScan Assessment of the Mineral Status and Heavy Metal Intoxication
OligoScan allows us to make a quick and precise analysis of the trace elements and heavy metals in the tissues of our patients. Identifying Toxic Metal in the system.
The measure is made directly in the office with a portable, TGA approved spectrophotometer device. The collected data from the patient are sent in a few clicks to the secure central server OligoScan and we get back the results within a few seconds.
This test is a revolutionary technique to check in real time the mineral status of our patients for an individual and efficient supplementation. In case of heavy metal intoxication, we design a detoxification program.
OligoScan is an innovative and precious prevention tool allowing a longitudinal follow-up of our patients.
The tables below show a sample report:
Advantages of OligoScan Testing:
· Fast and non-invasive
· Allows a quick diagnosis
· Correlates the heavy metal intoxication with nutritional deficiencies
· Enables us to design a precise and individualised detoxification plan as well as nutritional correction
· Follow up scans after intervention help us monitor the efficacy of our intervention.
Heavy Metal Toxicity
The most common causes of heavy metal toxicity are: cadmium, mercury, lead, arsenic, antimony.
Their sources are environmental, water supply, industrial, hobbies, food, vaccines.
Heavy metals can affect the nervous system, cardiovascular system, kidneys, reproductive system, endocrine glands.
The symptoms of chronic heavy metal toxicity can be very vague:
· Mental confusion
· Muscle and joint pains
· Food intolerances, allergies
· Chronic fatigue.
Very often such vague symptoms are difficult to diagnose and the conventional tests can be normal.
This is where OligoScan proves itself to be a very valuable diagnostic tool.
At out clinic we recommend heavy metal detoxification according to a protocol which includes chellators and antioxidants, alkalizers, gut, kidney and liver support.
The nutritional deficiencies are corrected at the same time.
Patients are closely monitored throughout the detoxification process and follow up OligoScan testing is done to ensure that we are progressing in the right direction.
