Type-1 Diabetic Detoxes Twice as Much Mercury

In the midst of a move, we found time to cut off another tablespoon of Nicole’s hair to post to Arizona for her second hair mineral analysis. A tablespoon is a fair bit of hair. I even nicked her with the scissors by accident. There was blood. But, being a type-1 diabetic, she’s used to pricks of blood.

Anyway, we got the tests results back. As readers know we have been following Dr. Wilson’s Nutritional Balancing program to reverse the kidney failure and the diabetes. The program involves hair mineral tests every 2-6 months.

Nicole’s results showed some impressive signs in the toxic metal department:

  • Lead being excreted into her hair went from 0.024% to 0.034%.
  • Mercury output doubled – going from 0.031% to o.071%.
  • Cadmium nudged a bit – up 0.001%.
  • Arsenic is on the run – going from 0.007% to 0.017%.
  • Aluminum, interestingly, didn’t budge from 0.18%.

It’s hard to know if toxic metals like mercury are directly causing her diabetes and kidney failure. But it’s fair to say they are probably getting in the way of her body’s self-healing mechanisms.

As I understand nutritional balancing science, half the goal is to raise the vitality of the body so that it can fight off infections. If type-1 diabetes is caused by an infection of the pancreas, then improving the overall immune system should help. And detoxifying her body of mercury and arsenic will probably help the immune system.

P.S. Of course, the hair mineral analysis reveals much more about the body than just toxic metal levels. I’ll share more in the future.

P.P.S. If you’re interested in getting your own hair mineral analysis done you can find a list of practitioners here.
