Oligoscan Heavy Metal and Mineral Analysis
The Oligoscan is a revolutionary technology that allows our Naturopaths to make a precise analysis of minerals, trace elements, and heavy metals currently present in the tissues and peripheral blood vessels. No biopsy, blood, or hair sample is needed.
Heavy metal toxicity and mineral deficiencies are one of the major contributors to many of today’s chronic diseases. Mercury, for example, which is commonly used in dental amalgams and present in the food chain, has been shown to trigger autoimmunity both in mice and humans.
In my practice, I find heavy metal toxicity in over 70% of patients being treated for long term auto immune disorders. Left undetected this can slow treatment progress and lead to brain and nervous system disorders.
The method used by the OligoScan to obtain results on the amount of trace elements, minerals and heavy metals in tissues is the spectrophotometry. It is a quantitative analytical method, which consists in measuring the absorbance or optical density of a chemical substance. The basic principle is that every chemical compound absorbs, emits or reflects light (electromagnetic radiation) over a certain range of wavelength.
The more the sample is concentrated, the more it absorbs the light within the limits of proportionality expressed in the law Beer-Lambert. Spectrophotometry is used in many domains: chemistry, pharmacy, environment, food-processing industry, biology, medical/clinical, material/chemical engineering and clinical applications and many others. In the clinical applications, spectrophotometry is used to examine blood or tissues for clinical diagnosis.
