Chiropractic & Naturopathic Medicine Dr. James Ray

We focus on helping our patients/clients move away from “dis-ease” to a state of “well-being.” Together with our patients we work to design a whole-health wellness plan that incorporates cutting-edge, non-invasive methodologies that restore and optimize health.

Nutrition and the Science of Balancing Body Chemistry

Balancing Body Chemistry/Nutritional Balancing program through Hair Tissue Elemental/Mineral Analysis.

The best and most cost effective way to balance your unique body chemistry is through Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis. This analysis offers a metabolic blueprint with a high degree of applicable scientific accuracy which provides a wealth of information. It is a screening test that measures the mineral content of your hair. However, a hair tissue mineral analysis is much more than a test for minerals as mineral deficiencies and elevations of toxic elements both can impair metabolism and result in a multitude of symptoms. Different patterns of mineral deficiency and excess indicate malfunction of various bodily processes. Allergies, select vitamin deficiencies, weakened detoxification and antioxidant defense systems, glandular activity, maldigestion and malabsorption, disorders of carbohydrate metabolism, metabolic rate, energy levels and stage of stress are a few of the metabolic imbalances that are alluded to by various results of hair analysis. Hair elemental analysis is a good test for investigating underlying causes of fatigue, chronic pain, cognitive/memory/emotional problems, violent behavior, learning disabilities, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, arthritis, neurological disorders, weakened immunity, hypoglycemia, diabetes, weak finger nails, unhealthy skin and hair, and accelerated aging. Minerals are literally the "sparkplugs" of life. They are involved in virtually all enzyme reactions within the body. Without enzyme activity, life ceases to exist!

The program is designed to balance body chemistry first and foremost. It will also remove two dozen toxic metals, hundreds of toxic chemicals, and many chronic infections from the body. This is done gently and safely. This test can then be repeated over time to continue to track, modify & optimize your overall health and well-being as your physiology improves. Hair tissue mineral analysis is considered a standard test used around the world for the biological monitoring of trace elements and toxic metals in humans and animals as it reflects the mineral content of the body's tissues.

Balancing Body Chemistry/Nutritional Balancing Science

  • Is a new science of healing that helps to gently detoxify and restore the body and mind to its full potential.
  • Is as effective for healing most mental and emotional disorders as it is for many physical ones.
  • Removes toxic metals and hundreds of toxic chemicals.
  • Uses only natural substances and natural healing methods.
  • Removes deep-seated, latent and sub-clinical conditions.
  • Is predictive, preventive and safe for all ages.
  • Provides a whole system and thoroughly holistic approach to health care.

In today's world, our bodies are constantly and continuously bombarded with toxins. For this reason, Balancing Body Chemistry/Nutritional Balancing Science takes some ideas from many of the older healing sciences and integrates and updates them to deal with the health disasters and special needs of the 21st century. It provides a synthesis and unique application of principles from many healing sciences such as: Nutritional Sciences, Traditional Naturopathy, Western Medicine, Cybernetics and Systems Theory, The Stress Theory of Disease, Homeopathy and Oriental Sciences such as Macrobiotics.

So, who needs a hair analysis? Anyone who desires to optimize their health. Additionally, anyone who is found ill & no explanation can be found, or when the cause seems to be found but the therapy is not wholly effective. This program opens up a whole new vista for solving your own particular problem by recognizing your biochemical individuality.

Various mineral imbalances, as revealed by hair analysis, frequently lead to metabolic dysfunctions before any symptoms become manifest. This program truly offers a "prevention" type approach to health and wellness.

Even if you are not experiencing a severe problem, abnormal changes in body chemistry and nutritional deficiencies may result in early, subtle changes in the body such as:

  • White spots in fingernails
  • Longitudinal ridging in nails
  • Brittle hair and nails
  • Deep grooves across nails
  • Stretch marks
  • Mood swings

As time progresses, some of the other conditions which may result or be aggravated by a mineral imbalance are:

  • Depression
  • Hypoglycemia
  • Hyperactivity
  • Headaches 
  • Hypertension 
  • Arthritis 
  • Hair loss body chemistry
  • Anemia 
  • Thyroid disturbance 
  • Prostate disorders 
  • Digestive disturbances 
  • Diabetes 
  • Musculoskeletal disorders
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Skin rashes
  • Emotional problems
  • Allergies

What are some common causes of mineral imbalances?

  • Improper diet
  • Taking vitamins and minerals which are not compatible with your current
  • Medications
  • Birth control pills
  • Stress
  • Accumulation of toxic metals from the environment, job or hobby
  • Inheritance of mineral patterns from parents
