Toxic Minerals & Metals Testing

We will soon offer opportunities to use a breakthrough in mineral analysis called the Oligoscan. Please email us at if you are interested in this opportunity.


What is the Oligoscan?


The Oligoscan is a handheld device that allows us to make a quick and precise analysis of the broad spectrum of minerals at the intracellular levels of your tissues.


This can range from the more abundant electrolytes such as magnesium or calcium, to trace elements and also toxic heavy metals such as mercury and lead.


The results of the scanning are ready for interpretation within 20 seconds.

How does it work?


Oligoscan technology uses spectrophotometry. The basic principle is that every type of compound, regardless if whether it is chemical or mineral-based, absorbs, emits or reflects light over a specific range of wavelengths.


The Oligoscan shines certain frequencies of light into the palm of the hand at specific points. The reflected light is analysed against calibrated data sets, and the results are displayed in a series of easy to understand bars, indicating the relative levels of each mineral.


This allows us to see any mineral deficiencies or excesses within your tissues. This information in turn can be used to more appropriately advise any nutritional changes or supplementation that may be required to restore your optimal health.


The Oligoscan server also calculates important mineral ratios for assessing how your metabolism is working and degree of adrenal stress.

What are minerals?

Minerals are inorganic elements found in the earth's crust. Crystals, rock, wood, natural water and metals all contain minerals. Plants uptake minerals from the soil with the help of the microorganisms found there, and animals then eat those plants to continue the cycle. Within living systems there are many minerals in larger or smaller amounts.

Why are minerals important?

Minerals are essential to life, and can influence:

  • Enzyme co-factors

  • Alkalinity

  • Structural integrity

  • Electrolytes

  • Nerve function

  • Muscle contraction

  • Creation of human bodyfields

  • Hormones and reproductive health

  • Antioxidants

  • Stomach acid

  • Blood sugar balance

  • Detoxification

  • Oxygen transport and uptake

Toxic metals


There is an Oligoscan function dedicated to the toxic metals that we are all exposed to on a daily basis. These toxic metals can cause havoc in our bodies by disrupting hundreds of different chemical reactions.


Toxic metals can cause excessive oxidative stress, which is essentially cellular damage. Your liability to oxidative stress is also calculated by the Oligoscan.

How is the Oligoscan different than other mineral tests?


The Oligoscan represents a breakthrough in mineral analysis technology that allows us to see the levels of minerals in living tissue.


Other methods of testing minerals include urine, blood serum, RBC analysis and hair.


While all of these methods are useful, they also have their limitations. This is because they are mostly measuring excreted substances.
