E. HAIR MINERAL ANALYSIS
a) PATTERNS ON AN INITIAL HAIR MINERAL ANALYSIS
Adrenal Stress Pattern = sodium above about 100 mg%.
Aggressiveness = calcium less than about 14 mg%.
Attempting To Overcome Overwhelming Stress = three lows and sympathetic dominance.
Basic Burnout = sodium less than 5 mg%.
Beam Me Up, Scottie = fast oxidation and a low sodium/potassium ratio in those who eat a lot of fruit.
Belligerence = magnesium less than about 3 mg%
Biounavailable Calcium and Magnesium = calcium above 100 mg%, magnesium above about 9mg%.
Bowl Pattern = a high Ca/Mg ratio and a low Na/K ratio.
Burned Out Sympathetic Dominant = low potassium and a low sodium/potassium ratio.
Calcium Shell = a hair calcium level above 165 mg% in a woman or 155 mg% in a man. It indicates psychological withdrawal, or overwhelming stress, or difficulty handling stress.
When the calcium level is above about 340 mg%, it is called petrified pattern.
When the calcium level is above about 500 mg%, it usually indicates the presence of trauma from the soul’s past lifetime.
Checkmark Pattern = if one connects the tops of the bar graphs of the first four numbers, the pattern resembles a check mark. This pattern is associated with Criminality.
Cliff Pattern = Ca/Mg ratio between about 4 and 6, AND a Na/K ratio greater than about 10, AND usually a three highs pattern with a low potassium level. This is a criminal pattern.
Coasting = This is a hair test with the first four numbers are fairly even or balanced. An extreme example is the flat-line pattern.
Coasting is the opposite of efforting. Coasting means that the person is not making a lot of effort in life. This is actually not good, and may be one reason why flat-line pattern is associated with the development of cancer in the body.
Collapse patterns = any time two, three or four of the major macrominerals all decline by at least 100%. This is also sometimes called a super settling down pattern. It is usually very positive.
Combination Or Combo Readings = Some hair analysis readings are definitely due to combinations of factors, some of which are elevating the mineral level, while others are making it lower.
Compensated Hair Mineral Tests = When the macromineral (calcium, magnesium, sodium, and potassium) levels and ratios, and perhaps other indicators, are fairly close to normal in a chronically ill person. This can be a confusing situation.
Conflict Patterns = patterns related to types of stress conflicts going on inside a person or around a person.
Criminality Patterns = hair mineral patterns and discussion related to criminal behavior. Hair testing can be very useful to detect criminal behavior, and its motives.
Cult Diet Pattern = this often includes a nickel level above about 0.02 and/or a lead level greater than 0.1 mg% (due to drinking rooibos or red tea), mercury above about 0.035 mg% (due to eating tunafish), and sometimes aluminum above about 0.4 (due to using aluminum-containing antiperspirants).
Other possible indicators are an iron level greater than 2 mg%, a chromium level greater than about 0.12 mg%, cadmium greater than about 0.007 mg%, arsenic greater than 0.008 mg%, manganese greater than 0.04 mg%, and/or selenium greater than about 0.18 mg%.
When some women or men are raped, they are told that to avoid another rape or death they must drink rooibos tea daily, they must avoid all red meat, and they must eat tunafish daily and fruit daily. They may also be told to use anti-perspirants that contain aluminum, which raises the hair aluminum level. The demands can vary, but these are the most common features of this dietary pattern. It is designed to keep a person weak and ill. Please read The Cult Or Rape Diet for a more complete explanation of this important pattern.
Death Patterns (These are now called Serious Patterns. See Serious Patterns below).
Deep Anger = A four low pattern that often persists for more than one test, and maybe much longer. Often, but not necessarily a low four lows, but often not with a low Na/K ratio. The pattern is common, especially in middle-aged women, and indicates anger and hatred for life, a “life stinks” attitude.
Deficiency (yin and/or blood deficiency) Pattern = Also see the bowl pattern.
Depletion Pattern = Step down pattern AND potassium of 1 mg% AND lots of poor eliminators.
Double High Ratio or Double Inflammation = a high Ca/Mg ratio and a high Na/K ratio. This pattern reinforces all symptoms associated with a high Na/K ratio.
Double Hill Pattern = A hill pattern on the first four minerals (calcium, magnesium, sodium and potassium) along with a hill pattern on the second four minerals (iron, copper, manganese and zinc). This visual pattern is uncommon, and is a very positive sign. It indicates “excited on the inside and outside”.
Double Patterns = This is a general term meaning patterns that either require two or more levels or ratios to create the pattern, or that are reinforced when a second or perhaps third or fourth indicator is present. They may also include patterns that are present on the second four numbers (iron, copper, manganese and zinc) when these mimic or have the same pattern as the first four numbers. For example, one can have a double hill pattern, or a double bowl pattern, or a double fast oxidizer pattern, etc. involving the first four and the second four minerals on the ARL hair chart.
Double patterns have to do with fractal theory. Fractals are simple numbers that repeat, forming much more complex systems or patterns. The human design is fractal, and double or doubling patterns on a hair mineral analysis reflect that design.
Double double patterns = These include any double pattern that is repeated on the second four numbers (iron, copper, manganese and zinc). For example, one can have a double double high ratio pattern. This is a double high ratio pattern on the first four minerals, along with a double high ratio pattern on the second four minerals.
One that we look for a lot is a double double low ratio pattern. This is a double low ratio pattern on the first four minerals, along with a double low ratio pattern on the second four minerals. It is a double slow death indicator, or double wanting to die pattern. For more, see the article entitled Second Four patterns.
Double Low Ratio Or Double Inversion Pattern = a low Ca/Mg ratio and low Na/K ratio. This pattern reinforces all symptoms associated with a low Na/K ratio.
Double 0s Pattern = This is older terminology that is no longer used. The newer terminology is the Poor Eliminator Pattern. It refers to extremely low levels of lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic, aluminum, nickel, boron, iron, copper, and/or manganese. Mercury could be 0.003 mg%, for example. This is too low and indicates impaired elimination of mercury. The poor eliminator concept is very critical. Please read the article about it.
Efforting Patterns = These are patterns in which a person is making an effort. They usually involve a high sodium/potassium ratio and/or slow oxidation. They include sympathetic dominance, hard driver, step down (stepping into life), trying too hard, trying hard to stay afloat, trying to stay alive, and workaholic patterns.
Eight bowl = This is an unusual pattern in which the first eight minerals on a calibrated ARL hair mineral chart form a bowl-shaped pattern. The meaning is similar to a bowl composed of the first four macrominerals, except it is a deeper pattern. See the Bowl Pattern for more details.
Other patterns composed of the first eight minerals on the ARL chart are possible, such as a hill, step down or step up. However, they are very rarely seen.
Fast Oxidation = a low calcium/potassium ratio and a high sodium/magnesium ratio.
First-Second Patterns. This is a term used to describe patterns that occur on the first four minerals (calcium, magnesium, sodium and potassium) and repeat on the second four minerals (iron, copper, manganese and zinc).
Flattened or Shut Down Pattern = Potassium=1 mg% And Ca/K>130 And Normal or low Na/K ratio. This pattern is a very slow oxidizer with sympathetic dominance, but not a high Na/K. Usually, the person also has at least some poor eliminators, and perhaps all (8 or 9) poor eliminators.
The body is somewhat shut down, and the emotions are usually suppressed or “flat”. That is the meaning of the name of the pattern. It is seen more in women, and is associated with rape or other trauma. However, it can occur in men, as well.
The detoxification procedures are very important with this pattern.
Flat Line Pattern = This is a visual pattern. The top of the bar graphs of the first four macrominerals form a more or less exactly horizontal line.
This pattern often indicates the presence of trauma and poor health. It is seen in some cases of cancer. It is an example of a coasting pattern.
Four Highs/Three Highs = Calcium, magnesium, sodium and potassium above the ideal values.
Four Lows = calcium below 40 mg%, magnesium below 6 mg%, sodium below 25 mg% and potassium below 10 mg%. This pattern may also be called In The Tunnel Of Death.
Giving Away Your Power = sodium level of 1 mg% or less and potassium level of 1 mg% or less. Milder forms of this are when sodium is 2 mg% and potassium is either 1 or 2 mg%. Another name for this pattern is the victim pattern.
Goalpost Pattern = Iron > 8 and manganese >0.8. (These values may be modified in the future as this is a fairly recently-discovered pattern). The pattern looks like the goalposts of a football stadium. Hence the name.
A way to describe the pattern is reaching the goal. This means that the person has achieved something that was wanted at a deep level.
As a result, a change is taking place in the body that includes a release of a lot of the toxic forms of iron and toxic manganese. This appears to give rise to the hair pattern. We call this type of elimination an amigo dump (see Amigo Dump below under Hair Patterns Appearing Only On A Retest).
Interestingly, a goalpost pattern can appear on an initial hair mineral test. This would indicate that other activities besides a nutritional balancing program caused the pattern.
An unusual variant on this pattern is called the Doorway Pattern = Potassium > 20 mg%, copper > 7 mg%, and iron < 2 mg%. Visually, this looks like two tall goal posts separated by a lower graph value of iron. The pattern means “reaching for the goal”, or “the goal is in sight”. The person is throwing off toxic potassium, in most cases, and throwing off toxic copper. Both are excellent.
One can also have a double doorway pattern. This is the same as the single doorway pattern, with the addition of a sodium level greater than about 60 mg% and a manganese level greater than about 0.1 mg%. Visually, this pattern looks like two double goal posts on each side of a lower iron graph level. This pattern is rare, but is even better than the single post pattern.
Going Down Swinging = A very steep step down pattern. The Ca/K ratio must be greater than about 300:1 in a woman or greater than about 200:1 in a man. Also see Step Down Pattern.
A Good Heart = An excellent Na/K ratio (near 2.5) with an excellent Ca/Mg ratio (near 6.67). So far, this pattern is found in Christian women or men who actually live the religious teachings of Jesus and those of the Old Testament, as well.
Grief Pattern = A double low ratio pattern, but not a step up pattern, combined with a four highs pattern.
Hard driver pattern = a four highs pattern AND a double high ratio pattern. This is a person who pushes himself or herself hard. It is also a criminal pattern.
High sodium/potassium ratio = Na/K ratio above about 4.
High Tunnel = This is a four highs pattern with very elevated readings. The calcium level is above about 160 mg%, the magnesium level is above about 24 mg%, the sodium level is above about 100 mg% and the potassium level is above about 40 mg%.
We believe this is a type of tunnel, similar to the tunnel in three lows and four lows. However, it is milder and does not require a special healing program.
Hill pattern = a low Ca/Mg ratio and a high Na/K ratio, usually seem more on retests, but not always.
Holding On for Dear Life = a three lows pattern plus low Na/K and low Ca/Mg plus an elevated magnesium level. This is a person who is very close to going into a four lows pattern. The boat is almost sinking and needing to go into dry dock soon if something is not changed. Medical drugs, nutritional depletion, toxic metal poisoning or stress can cause this.
Immersed In Stress = very slow oxidation, and sodium<3, and Na/K<1. This is uncommon, and found mainly in some vegetarians.
Inertia Patterns = these are patterns that indicate that a person is somewhat stuck due to inertia.
J-Bowl or Ski Jump Bowl = a very high calcium/magnesium ratio AND a mild low sodium/potassium ratio. Visually, this pattern can appear like a ski jump or a backwards letter J. Hence the name. This pattern usually indicates a person who is stuck, but very determined to become well. It is an “attitude” pattern, meaning the person has attitude, or great determination.
Joy Patterns = these are a set of hair analysis patterns that indicate improved health and well-being, often accompanied by a greater sense of joy and happiness.
Kidney Stress = this can raise the sodium and/or potassium levels. It may even cause a fast oxidation rate. It is rare on an initial hair test, and much more common on retests when a person is following a development program.
Eliminating boron or palladium, in particular, seem to cause it although any toxic metal or chemical elimination through the kidneys can cause it.
Lifestyle Imbalance (also called Spiritual Defensiveness) = a calcium/magnesium ratio of 13.5 or greater. Indicates that certain lifestyle factors are in the way of one’s health and healing. The usual causes are recreational drug use, homosexuality, an abusive relationship and less commonly a negative attitude.
1. A Calcium/magnesium ratio between 5 and 8, AND
2. A sodium/potassium ratio greater than 10, AND
3. The levels of calcium and magnesium are usually near the ideal levels.
This pattern has to do with anger and inflammation (high sodium/potassium ratio) that is directed inward toward oneself. The sodium/potassium ratio is more of an internal indicator.
It is not about psychological withdrawal, however, which is associated with a calcium shell. In the low self-esteem pattern, the level of calcium and magnesium are much closer to the ideals.
There may be a hidden boron toxicity with this pattern.
L Pattern = The first four macrominerals (calcium, magnesium, sodium and potassium) appear in the shape of a capital L on the graph from Analytical Research Laboratories. This is also a three lows pattern with a very elevated calcium/magnesium ratio and a fairly normal sodium/potassium ratio with a fairly normal sodium/magnesium ratio. The pattern indicates a lifestyle problem, and may have other significance. It is a current subject of research.
Malnourished Pattern = Phosphorus level less than 10 along with a calcium level greater than about 400 mg% (or a petrified pattern). This is newer and not well-researched at this time. There may also be other malnourished patterns, yet to be discovered.
No Power Pattern = a fast oxidizer with several poor eliminators. Normally, a fast oxidizer should be eliminating toxic metals due to the faster oxidation rate. When this is not occurring, it is a sign of poorer health.
Paralleling = when at least three of the first four readings are very close to each other or even the same in two people who live in the same home. Matching the readings of another person in your household is a resonance or empathic healing method that speeds up healing and development.
Paranoia patterns = very fast oxidation AND possibly a Reverse L pattern.
Passive-Aggressive = a calcium shell AND a three or four highs pattern. The pattern is more pronounced if the Na/K ratio is less than 2.5. This interesting pattern combines suppression (a calcium shell) with inflammation (three or four highs). A person with the pattern tends to be suppressed most of the time, except when they explode with anger.
Poor Eliminator And Very Poor Eliminator Patterns = severe difficulty eliminating toxic metals and toxic chemicals. Indicators are very low levels of the toxic metals and some nutrient minerals, as explained in the article.
There is also a very poor eliminator pattern that is just more extreme.
Other patterns associated with impaired elimination include sympathetic dominance, very slow oxidation, a sodium/potassium ratio less than about 1.5, three lows pattern, four lows pattern or phosphorus less than 13 mg%.
Quantifying The Hair Analysis Patterns. Many hair analysis patterns can be quantified, which is a way to assess their severity in mathematical terms, such as single, double, triple and so on. This article explains what this means and gives the quantifying criteria for some of the important patterns.
Reverse L pattern = a good Ca/Mg ratio along with a Na/K ratio less than about 1. This is a chronic stress pattern.
Criminal Leader Pattern = 2x calcium shell or higher AND a potassium level of 1 or 2 AND elevated manganese AND other elevated readings – usually iron, aluminum, nickel, mercury, cobalt and lead.
Second Four Patterns = patterns that appear in the second four mineral graphs on an ARL calibrated hair mineral chart. This is a more advanced research topic, but a very interesting one. Many are possible, and the article lists a number of them.
Serious Patterns = These are more severe biochemical imbalances, as the article explains. They are similar to those in Tibetan medicine. Among these patterns are very slow oxidation, a very low Na/K ratio, step up, double low ratio, double low ratio on the first and second four minerals, and a low four lows patterns. Another is a combination of four lows and an Na/K ratio less than 1. This is called Very Ill.
These people may be the “walking dead”. For more on this, please read about the Walking Dead on this site.
Severe Lifestyle or Attitude Stress = a calcium shell (calcium level greater than about 165 mg% in a woman or about 155 mg% in a man) along with a Ca/Mg ratio greater than about 9.5.
Severe or Double Burnout = a calcium shell and a low sodium/potassium ratio.
Shut Down Pattern – see Flattened Pattern above.
Skidding = a three lows pattern (see below).
Slow On Crutches = a slow oxidizer whose oxidation rate is propped up by the presence of toxic metals, so that on a retest the oxidation rate slows even further.
Slow Oxidation = a high calcium/potassium ratio and a low sodium/magnesium ratio.
Sodium Crisis = A good calcium/magnesium ratio and a sodium/potassium ratio greater than about 50-60 and perhaps balanced mixed oxidation. This may indicate many poor eliminators in the kidneys/adrenals and high stress on the kidneys/adrenals.
Sodium/Potassium Ratio or the vitality ratio.
Spillover Patterns = can be any hair analysis pattern that spills over to the second four minerals on an ARL chart (iron, copper, manganese and zinc). It can also be a pattern of the Na/K ratio that spills over to the Ca/Mg ratio. In this sense, the term spillover patterns has the same meaning as double patterns. Spillover may be a more descriptive term for this phenomenon.
Spiritual Defensiveness or Lifestyle Imbalance = a calcium/magnesium ratio greater than about 13.5. This indicates a lifestyle, habit or attitude imbalance. Common causes for the pattern are a problem with a job or a relationship, drug use (including marijuana), alcoholism, or a school problem for a child. A bad attitude can also cause the pattern if it is severe enough.
Step Down = slow oxidation, high Ca/Mg, high Na/K, and visually it must look like steps going downward from left to right. This pattern may also be called Stepping In To Life. It indicates a karmic beginning or starting a new aspect of life, and is considered a very positive pattern.
Step Up = fast oxidation, along with a low Ca/Mg and a low Na/K. Also, visually it must look like steps moving upward to the right. This may also be called Stepping Out Of Life. It is a quick death pattern. If not changed, it usually results in a fatal stroke or heart attack, or some other health catastrophe.
Stress From Within And Without = high Ca/Mg (stress from without) with a potassium level of 4 mg% or less (stress from within).
Stuck Patterns = include the following:
1) a bowl pattern.
2) 4 lows pattern.
3) A sodium/potassium ratio less than 1.
4) Very slow oxidation and/or a calcium shell pattern.
Stuck In A Pit or a Low Bowl = four lows pattern along with a bowl pattern. This pattern is not healthful, and may be considered a slow death pattern. It is often mainly nutritionally-related, however, and thus can be turned around with a nutritional balancing program.
The pattern consists of two “stuck” patterns. The deeper the bowl and the lower the four lows, the more extreme the pattern. The words “low bowl” just refers to the fact that it is a bowl pattern and a four lows pattern, and not to how deep in four lows one is. This pattern is often associated with reduced awareness, as well as fatigue and other symptoms.
Superimposition = the confusing situation in which one pattern on a hair test is superimposed upon another pattern.
For example, occasionally one sees a hill superimposed on a bowl. This means that the person basically is in a bowl pattern. However, something has caused excitement and joy, and this superimposes or is added to the bowl pattern. This occurs, at times, when a person discovers the development program and becomes excited.
When superimposition occurs, it can be difficult to assess which patterns are present. However, superimposition also can explain unusual hair mineral readings.
For example, one may observe a hill pattern in which all four numbers are quite elevated. One may wonder why. The answer may be that the person has a bowl pattern with an elevated calcium and elevated potassium. Superimposed upon this is the hill, causing all four numbers to be quite high.
Surges = A surge means a drastic increase in an important mineral level, ratio or pattern. Examples include an Na/K surge, which is a steep rise in the Na/K ratio on a retest.
Another example is an oxidation rate surge. This is a steep increase in the oxidation rate.
Another example is a toxic potassium surge. This is a steep rise in the level of potassium on a retest hair mineral test.
Sympathetic Dominance = potassium of 4 mg% or less OR three highs or four highs with a sodium/potassium ratio greater than about 4. The pattern is reinforced if the Ca/Mg is greater than about 9.5. Four lows is also considered a sympathetic dominance pattern.
This is a very important autonomic nervous system imbalances. Please read all about it. It is very common today, especially among urban dwellers.
The Amigos - Iron, Manganese, Aluminum And Often Nickel and Chromium = present when at least one of the major amigos (iron, manganese or aluminum) is elevated or is a poor eliminator. It is called the amigos or friends, because if one of these is out of range, often all of them are, but are hidden.
This is a very important pattern. The amigos are always oxides that are highly irritating and do oxidant damage. For this reason, I sometimes call them the irritants or oxidants. Rather than give anti-oxidants, which are extremely yin, one can reduce oxidant damage by eliminating from the body the amigos or oxidants.
Iron, manganese and aluminum toxicity are extremely common medical problems that the medical and holistic healing professions have great difficulty getting rid of. Nutritional balancing takes care of them easily, in most cases.
Three Lows = three of the four macrominerals are below their ideal values. This is also called Almost Four Lows, One Foot In The Tunnel or Skidding pattern. It means a person is quite close to a four lows pattern.
There are four possible ways this can occur: (with an elevated calcium, with an elevated magnesium, with an elevated sodium, or with an elevated potassium). Each has a slightly different meaning, but this is less critical than the overall pattern of three low macrominerals. Read the article Three Lows for much more on this common pattern.
Tired Fast Oxidizer or Temporary Fast Oxidizer = fast oxidizer with a low Na/K ratio.
Triangle Patterns = if one connects the tops of the bar graphs of the first four macrominerals, rarely the lines form a triangle. For this to occur, two of the lines must form a continuous straight line. This is a research area, but we believe such patterns are happier or more positive.
For example, a hill or bowl pattern can be a triangle, a fast or slow oxidizer can be a triangle, and others. These can occur on initial tests or on retests.
Toxic potassium pattern = a sodium/potassium ratio less than about 0.4. Human life is not possible with a sodium/potassium ratio less than about 0.3 to 0.4. When one sees a Na/K ratio lower than this, it indicates that some of the potassium reading is caused by the elimination of toxic potassium. It is a type of artifact, in other words, and the real Na/K is higher.
Trauma Patterns = a calcium shell, particularly if it is a double or greater shell, OR a double low ratio pattern on the second four minerals, OR a potassium level less than 1 mg% (cannot be read on an ARL test at this time), OR a sodium/potassium ratio less than 1, OR a double low ratio pattern on the first four minerals, OR a Ca/Mg ratio greater than about 13.5.
Other possible indicators are a vampire victim pattern (see below), a vampire pattern (see below), or any extreme pattern such as very slow oxidation or very fast oxidation. Another is a cult diet pattern (see above).
Triple Death = A four lows pattern on the first, second and third tetra of minerals. This is a more severe death pattern. The section above entitled Death Patterns explains this pattern in more detail.
Trying Hard To Stay Afloat = high Ca/Mg and high Na/K ratio, along with a potassium of 4 mg% or less.
Trying Too Hard = Calcium above 170 mg% (a calcium shell), and potassium of 4 mg% or less (sympathetic dominance).
Trying To Stay Alive = Calcium/magnesium > 40, sodium/potassium > 10, potassium < 5, and calcium > 200. This is an extreme lifestyle pattern and a serious one.
Vampire Patterns = a person is in fast oxidation by stealing energy from others. Usually a fast oxidizer with good Na/K ratio in an adult. The pattern is worse if the Na/K is elevated, and even worse if it is a double high ratio pattern with fast oxidation. An energy vampire may have a low Na/K, at times.
Vampire Victim Patterns = When the sodium is 1 mg% and the potassium is 1 mg%. It is also present, though to a lesser degree, in a slow oxidizer with a sodium of 2 mg% and a potassium level of 1 mg%.
This indicates a psychological, more than a physical victimhood pattern, although physical depletion occurs, as well. (See above under Depletion Pattern). It can be quite yin and destructive. Fortunately, it usually changes with a nutritional balancing program.
Other names for this pattern are the poor me pattern, feeling sorry for oneself pattern, or playing the victim pattern. This is still being researched.
Very Ill = four lows AND Na/K ratio less than 1.
Walking Dead Patterns. These include several important and common patterns. Please read the article for more details.
Wasting One’s Time = a calcium shell, a high Ca/Mg ratio and a potassium of 4 mg% or less. Pattern may be more correctly called biding one’s time. in some cases.
Workaholic = three or four highs, along with a high sodium/potassium ratio. This pattern may also be called the intense pattern because the person is often very intense.
The Worker = A fast oxidation rate, with an Na/K ratio between 2.5 and 5, and a copper level above 2.5 mg%. Dr. Eck identified this pattern. It indicates a person who is somewhat compulsive, but very aware and an excellent office worker.
Wrong Two Highs Patterns (4 of them). These occur when two macrominerals are high and two are low, but they are not the usual configurations.
Amigo doubling = when at least two of the amigos double on a retest. This is generally very good, indicating a strong amigo dump is in progress (see amigo dump below).
It is possible to even have an amigo tripling or amigo quadrupling, which are even better with a similar meaning.
Amigo Dump = a rise or a fall of at least 30-40% in the levels of iron, manganese and aluminum on a retest.
Armoring Up = more poor eliminator patterns on a retest or more extreme poor eliminator patterns on a retest, provided that the person follows a nutritional balancing program. Other tentative names for this pattern are preparing for battle or holding on to your poors.
Backing Out Of Four Lows. (see below under Out Of The Tunnel Backwards).
Back To Life = Moving into a step down pattern on a retest that was not present on the previous test.
Bowling = Moving into a bowl pattern on a retest hair analysis. This usually indicates moving into a retracing of a trauma or some other difficult situation. The criteria are that the calcium/magnesium ratio increases AND the sodium/potassium ratio decreases.
Extreme bowling on a retest hair analysis is called “Diving Head First”. It require that the calcium/magnesium ratio at least doubles, AND the sodium/potassium ratio at least halves, or decreases by 50% or more.
Collapses (also called crashes) = These are at least a three or four-fold decrease in a level, ratio or pattern on a retest. There are many possibilities for these, since a collapse could involve a level, a ratio or a pattern such as the oxidation rate. Collapses are generally considered excellent patterns if one is following a nutritional balancing program. They often indicate fast progress.
Coming Alive = On a retest, all four of the macromineral levels (Ca, Mg, Na, K) increase. The pattern is also present when 1, 2 or 3 of the first four minerals increases, while the others remain the same. The pattern is strongest when all four of the macrominerals increase, and weakest when only 1 of the macrominerals increases.
This is a very positive pattern, with increased brightness of the energy field in all cases.
The increase in sodium and potassium are usually related to an elimination of toxic metals or toxic chemicals, which cause some kidney stress that temporarily raises the sodium and potassium levels.
The increase in calcium and magnesium is protective and indicates a controlled healing process, which is very good.
Coming alive in life pattern. This is an even better variant that is present when the first 3 macrominerals increase, and the potassium decreases. It is extremely positive and usually indicates one has retraced a trauma, and is much happier. Usually, there is also some hilling and lots of elimination of toxic metals with this pattern. Often, there has been some crying or sobbing, which is an emotional release. One must do the program well for this pattern to occur.
Exploding. This is a special case of coming
alive (see below).
Coming Back = a calcium shell decreases by 50% or more on a retest AND the Na/K ratio remains at 2.5 or above. This can be a situation in which something old was retraced or cleared, and the person is now back in the present. This is a newer pattern and still being researched.
Coming Back To Life or Making Progress In Four Lows= A retest pattern in which a person who was in four lows pattern remains in four lows, but the ratios improve, the levels of the macrominerals improve, and/or the phosphorus level improves.
Coming In For A Landing = A settling down pattern AND several high trace mineral and/or toxic metal readings decreasing. This pattern indicates a return to normal health and is a very positive pattern.
Coming Into One’s Own = On a retest, the calcium, magnesium and sodium levels decrease AND potassium increases a little AND there is arise (elimination) of iron, manganese and aluminum. This is a maturing that often occurs between the ages of 16 and 25, often at the end of the third 7-year cycle of life (age 21-22).
Coming Out Pattern = A 2x shell changes to no shell, AND a 50% reduction or more in the Ca/Mg ratio, though it may still be high, AND phosphorus increases by 3 mg% or more, AND sodium/potassium ratio improves and flips AND a deep bowl changes to a step down pattern. This is still being researched.
Crash Landing or just a Crash = At least two of the macromineral levels (calcium, magnesium, sodium and/or potassium) must decrease 50% or more on a retest, and none of the macrominerals rises higher. This is a special case of settling down pattern. Possible cases are:
1. The sodium and potassium levels may decrease a lot, moving a person from a faster to a slower oxidation rate. This is the most common case of crashing or crash landing.
2. A mild slow oxidation rate changes to a very slow oxidation rate on a retest.
3. A four highs pattern disappears, changing to a slow oxidation pattern with low sodium and potassium levels.
4. A four highs pattern could change to a four lows pattern.
5. Any oxidation pattern could change to a low four lows pattern.
For more, see Collapses above.
This is usually good, and usually involves the elimination of “crutches” that were keeping a person in fast or faster oxidation. Occasionally, symptoms can be annoying such as fatigue, depression and, in some cases constipation, joint pain or other symptoms.
Death To Life = A double low ratio pattern changes to a hill pattern on a retest. This is one of the best retest patterns. The person may feel “like I’m a new person”. Another name for this pattern is starting over.
Deep Settling Down = A decrease in the levels of the first four macrominerals (calcium, magnesium, sodium and potassium) of 100% or more. This pattern is healthful, but can be very uncomfortable if it occurs quickly. It can cause anxiety, depression or other negative emotions.
Diving Deep = A low sodium/potassium ratio becomes even lower on a retest by at least 10%. This is associated with deep retracing, usually of a trauma. Diving Deep can also show up as a lower four lows on a retest, although the meaning is not as clear in this case.
The Double = This is a combination of settling down pattern, a fast oxidation rate, and a sodium/potassium ratio above 2.5. In addition, the visual pattern repeats itself on the second four minerals.
This pattern always has to do with one’s father, and old anger toward him and toward all men. The elevated sodium/potassium ratio is always about anger and irritability. Settling down is always about getting in touch with feelings. A fast oxidation rate is always about expressing or asserting one’s power.
Double Forward Flip = this is a retest pattern in which the oxidation rate changes from fast to slow. Also, the sodium/potassium ratio increases from less than 2.5 up to 2.5 or higher.
This is a very positive pattern, and usually the person describes it as great or wonderful. There may be some drama in one’s life, and some people describe themselves as “a new person”.
Double Joy = Two joy patterns together. The most common combination is a hill pattern plus a coming alive pattern. However, it could involve an improved sodium/potassium ratio, an improved calcium/magnesium ratio or a much higher phosphorus level.
It could also be a hill or coming alive pattern on the first four numbers AND a hill or coming alive pattern on the second four numbers.
Down Elevator = the levels of all four macrominerals decrease by at least 40% and they decrease the same amount.
Down Sex Patterns = when all or almost all readings on a hair mineral analysis increase, or when all or almost all of them decrease, usually the person is doing down sex on a regular basis. For details about this powerful healing and development procedure, read Down Sex.
Eliminating toxic potassium = the Na/K ratio dips down to less than about 0.4 on a retest. Human life requires a Na/K ratio greater than about 0.4. If the ratio is lower, in almost all cases it is due to the elimination of some toxic potassium, which elevates the potassium level and reduces the Na/K a lot.
The sources of toxic potassium include human male sexual fluid, eating fruit, and babies are usually born with some toxic potassium from their mothers.
Emerging From The Bomb Shelter = A decrease in a calcium shell of at least 50%. The shell may still be present, or it may be gone altogether. This indicates a person no longer needs a shell, or not much of one compared to the previous test. It is a good sign of a stronger body and/or mind.
Emotional Outburst Patterns = These are mineral analysis patterns associated with erratic behavior.
Everything Coming Out = A rise in most or all of the toxic metal levels and the amigos (iron, manganese, and possibly chromium or selenium) on a retest. This is very good and usually reflects a much better energy level and often much better elimination or less sympathetic dominance present.
Excitement Fast Oxidizer = At times, a person goes into fast oxidation on a retest simply due to excitement. The meaning is something like a hill, although it is perhaps more superficial.
Exiting The Cult = A rise in nickel from a low level to a toxic level on a retest. This is an important pattern because many people in cults or groups are forced to drink rooibos or red tea spiked with nickel. This is a potent toxin that needs to be eliminated from the body during healing.
Exploding or explosions = a tripling or greater rise in two, three or all four major macrominerals on a retest. None of the macrominerals can decline. It is a special case of coming alive pattern (see above).
Possible variants are:
1. A person could “explode” within a four lows pattern
2. One could move from a four lows out of four lows.
3. One could begin not in four lows and the levels could increase further.
4. A shift from four lows to four highs (the leap or jump pattern).
Exploding is a very positive pattern. However, it can be temporarily quite disruptive because the body chemistry shifts drastically and the energy level often improves drastically. It may occur more in people who have a tendency for mental instability.
Flip Over Pattern = On a retest, a drastic change occurs in a mineral level, ratio or pattern. For example, a level or ratio may go from very high to very low, or vice versa. Or the oxidation rate may flip from fast to slow or vice versa.
When the flip is in the direction of healing, it is called a forward flip. When the flip is away from a healing direction, such as a low Na/K or fast oxidation, it is called a back flip.
Four highs to fast = a four highs pattern that changes on a retest so that the calcium and magnesium levels drop down, but the sodium and potassium levels remain about the same. This is the opposite of the usual retest progression in which a four highs pattern changes to a slow oxidizer on a retest.
This appears to be a type of coming alive pattern. It is due to a combination of changes, both of which occurred since the last retest. The first change is a settling down pattern (where all four numbers go down) followed by an increase in the oxidation rate (the sodium and potassium levels rise).
Patterns that may occur with the four highs to fast pattern are 1) zinc settling (a reduction in the zinc level) and 2) everything coming out pattern.
Four lows on a retest only = Life Planning, Dog In The Doghouse, Boat In Dry Dock, or Back In The Tunnel Of Death For Healing Purposes = a four lows pattern on a retest when the first test did not show a four lows pattern.
This is an important retest pattern. It is benign and positive, in fact, unlike four lows on an initial hair mineral analysis. It indicates a type of resting state and that is all. It is called ‘dog in the corner’ because it is like an animal that perhaps was injured or ill, and just wants to lay down in the corner and rest for a while. It is called the dry dock pattern because it is like sending your boat to the shipyard to be refurbished.
Gathering Firewood = A decrease in the hair phosphorus level on a retest when a person is following a nutritional balancing program.
Getting Help = magnesium increases on a retest by at least 30-40%. This is an important pattern. Poorer quality magnesium is actually eliminated, causing the pattern, and is replaced by a higher quality magnesium. Health usually improves with it.
Getting Into Gear = All or most toxic metal levels rise at least 10%. This signifies more vitality and better elimination.
Getting Lots Of Help = magnesium increases on a retest by at least 4 or 5 times, or more. Often, calcium also increases by 4 or 5 times, or more. Often, other positive patterns are present such as coming alive pattern.
Getting Married = a couple who are engaged to be married often go through a period of time when both of their calcium/magnesium ratios become low.
A low calcium/magnesium ratio often has to do with mother and mothering issues, which may arise when in the process of becoming married. (An elevated calcium/magnesium ratio often has to do with issues related to one’s father.)
Going deep = The sodium/potassium ratio decreases sharply on a retest, usually from a normal or high ratio to 0.2 to 0.4. This is usually an intervention, and occurs quickly. It is often a trauma release. Lots of toxins are released.
It is not common to see this pattern on a hair test because it does not last long. One needs to do the test at just the right interval to see it. To read more about interventions, please read Assisted Healing on this site.
Hilling = moving into a hill pattern on a retest. This indicates some type of overcoming, celebration or joyous feeling. The criteria are that the calcium/magnesium ratio becomes lower AND the sodium/potassium ratio increase on a retest.
Intense hilling on a retest is called “shooting to the top”. Often, the person received an intervention when this occurs (see “Getting Help” above). It is an intense joy, freedom or release, or ending of a difficult situation.
Holding On To Your Poors = when poor eliminator patterns become worse on a retest. This occurs, at times, when a person is retracing certain traumas. It is usually temporary. This pattern is also called armoring up.
Kidney stress = a rise of 20% or more in the sodium and potassium levels, associated with a toxic metal elimination. The rise is usually temporary. This is generally a good sign.
The Leap or Jump = This is a change on a retest from a four lows pattern to a four highs pattern. It is a type of coming alive pattern, and one comes out of four lows, as well. It is very positive. It can be an elevator pattern, or the ratios can change significantly.
Leaving The Cult = a rise in the level of 3 or more of the major cult-related minerals. These are mercury, aluminum, manganese, nickel, lead and cadmium. Less common cult-related minerals are iron, chromium and selenium.
Another indicator is a sharp rise in the potassium level. This often indicates an elimination of toxic potassium. The more minerals affected, and the greater the rise on the retest, the more significant the pattern.
Little Change = This occurs when there is less than about 5% change in all of the mineral levels on the test. The meaning, in many cases, is that the person is not following their development program closely enough. The problem could be in the diet, the supplements, the lifestyle or not doing enough procedures.
Another possibility is that the person has so much stress that there is little progress, even though the person followed the program well. It is possible that there is change, but the minerals that would reflect the changes are not read by the laboratory.
Moving Fast = this is defined as an amigo dump (see above), plus a phosphorus above 20, two or three forward flips, and many fewer poor eliminator patterns. It is not common, but it indicates accelerated progress for some reason.
Moving Into The Mud = this common retest pattern is present when the oxidation rate slows greatly or perhaps the sodium/potassium ratio declines drastically, indicating that a person is dealing with an old infection, toxic metal or emotional trauma.
Much calmer = this pattern involves 1) a fast oxidation, 2) the oxidation rate slows down on a retest, but is still in fast oxidation, and 3) a settling down pattern.
New person patterns = These are several patterns that are very good. One is Death To Life pattern (see description above). Another is New Start In Life (see description below). Another is the Double Forward Flip. Triangle patterns may also very positive. These occur when connecting the top of the bar graphs on an ARL calibrated chart forms a triangle.
New Start In Life = A double low ratio pattern on the previous test changes to a step down pattern, or close to it, on a retest. This is a change from a slow death / double give-up pattern to a stepping into life pattern. It is a double flip pattern (both the sodium/potassium ratio and the calcium/magnesium ratio flip).
This pattern indicates a new underlying strength, like a new strong floor under your feet. It may involve elimination of a lead compound. There can be other positive changes on the retest, such as elimination of the amigos and/or a higher phosphorus level.
Not facing a lifestyle or attitude issue = A calcium/magnesium ratio above 13.5 becomes even higher on a retest.
On fire = A rise in the phosphorus level of at least 2 mg% on a retest when a person is following a nutritional balancing pattern.
Out of the tunnel = When a four lows pattern on a previous test resolves to slow oxidation. This usually indicates improved overall health and vitality.
Out of the tunnel backwards or Out Of Four Lows Backwards, or Backing Out Of Four Lows = When a four lows pattern on the first test changes to a fast oxidation pattern (and no four lows) on a retest. This is not the usual way to exit four lows. It usually indicates a temporary exiting of four lows, in which the person will go back into four lows again soon.
Overjoyed = a bowl pattern changes to a hill pattern on a retest, and the phosphorus level rises 2 or more mg%. This is an excellent pattern. It is not seen commonly.
Persistent Four Lows = four lows continues on a retest. This usually indicates that the person is still either in an initial “tunnel” pattern, which indicates poor health. However, if it occurs on a retest only, then it usually indicates the person is still receiving new life planning.
Preparing for battle = see armoring up pattern.
Putting up a wall of protection = a rise of at least 50% in the level of calcium on a retest, causing a shell pattern.
Renewal = All of the toxic metal levels decrease significantly on a retest. Also, the potassium level may increase. This is an elimination of toxic potassium, when seen with this pattern.
Resolving a lifestyle or attitude issue = A calcium/magnesium ratio greater than 13.5 declines at least 10%.
Revelation, or On The Move, or Greater Self-Awareness = a change on a retest from a hill pattern to a double high fast oxidizer pattern. This is newer and still being researched.
Rocking Pattern. A retest pattern in which the mineral balance shifts back and forth between fast and slow oxidation. Often a three lows pattern and a low sodium/potassium ratio are present, but not always.
Settling Down = A retest pattern in which the levels of one or more of the macrominerals (Ca, Mg, Na, K) decrease. The other macrominerals must stay the same. None of the macromineral levels may increase for this pattern to be present.
The most significant settling down occurs when all four macrominerals decrease on a retest. The settling down pattern is milder if only 1, 2 or 3 of the macrominerals decrease while the others stay the same.
This is an excellent sign of progress. Settling down always indicates a person is calmer and more in touch with feelings.
It is possible to have a double settling down – on the first four minerals and on the second four minerals. This is an even more positive retest pattern.
A more extreme variant of this pattern is a crash or a crash landing (see above).
Settling Into Four Lows = A settling down pattern plus a transition from slow or fast oxidation into a low four lows pattern.
This pattern is an excellent sign when it occurs during a nutritional balancing program. It consists of two excellent patterns combined, and indicates usually a fast process of healing.
Shelling or A More Severe Shell On A Retest, or just developing a shell on a retest = This occurs frequently. While some of the cause can be an elimination of metastatic or biounavailable calcium, another cause that is important is that the person is waking up mentally, emotionally or spiritually, and needs some protection that a shell affords.
Super Settling – All four macrominerals decrease by 50% or more. This is a very good pattern. It is similar to settling down, but more intense. One feels much more relaxed, steady, and often more grounded, centered, with “feet on the ground”.
Surge – These are steep increases – at least three or four-fold - in a level, a ratio or a pattern. Most surges are positive patterns. Here are two types:
Na/K surges. The most common type of surge occurs when the Na/K ratio increases by at least a factor of 5. This can be an extreme flip from a ratio of less than 1:1, to a ratio greater than 5:1. Rarely, the Na/K ratio goes from about 3 to about 15 or higher. This is also a surge, but may not be as positive.
Oxidation surges. Another type of surge occurs when the oxidation rate increases dramatically. I have not quantified this pattern.
The oxidation rate could go from very slow to very fast. It might also go from very slow to only mildly slow or from mildly fast to very fast.
Most surges are positive. However, a person’s energy shifts dramatically, and it can be a destabilizing pattern for this reason. Behavior can change, for example, and a person could explode or “blow up”, as a result.
Three Up = This is a newer pattern. The calcium, magnesium and sodium levels rise on a retest. The potassium level either remains the same or decreases. There is usually a great improvement in the sodium/potassium ratio. This is a positive pattern, somewhat like a mild coming alive pattern.
Waking up = This is an increase in the oxidation rate, increase in phosphorus and a rise in the sodium/potassium ratio. Often, the Ca/Mg is better, as well. It is a positive pattern.
Up Elevator = A retest pattern in which the levels of all four of the macrominerals (Ca, Mg, Na, K) increase at least 30%, and they all increase by the same proportion so that the major ratios (Ca/Mg, Ca/K, Na/K and Na/Mg) remain about the same.
Zinc settling – When zinc decreases on a retest, even if it becomes too low. Often phosphorus also declines, but not always. This is a very good prognostic pattern. Reasons for this pattern may include:
1. Zinc decreases because it is being retained in place of a toxic metal.
2. Zinc “kicks into gear”. This means that zinc may begin to respond properly to the sodium/potassium ratio. For example, when the Na/K ratio is low, the zinc level should be low to help balance the Na/K ratio.
3. There is less need for an elevated zinc, which can act as a protector against another toxic metal such as copper toxicity.
Bouncers – Some people’s hair mineral retests change a lot from test to test. I am not sure why this occurs in some people. The oxidation rate can vary, as can the major ratios. A lot of stress can contribute to this progression.
Ca/Mg Worsening Or Improving On Three Successive. A progressive worsening of the Ca/Mg ratio usually indicates that a lifestyle issue has not been dealt with, and is now even more important to end or change. If the Ca/Mg ratio slowly improves on three or more successive tests, it generally indicates that a person is slowly handling a lifestyle imbalance such as the use of drugs, or correcting a bad attitude, for example.
Locked down = Two or more retests on which the level of calcium, magnesium, sodium or potassium remains very low, in spite of following the nutritional balancing program. Another possibility is that one remains with a very slow oxidation rate on two or more retests.
These patterns can be due to hidden health problems, trauma, hidden toxic metals, or other causes.
Locked up = Two or more retests on which the level of calcium, magnesium, sodium or potassium remains very high, in spite of following the nutritional balancing program. Another possibility is that a fast oxidation pattern may persist for two or more retests.
These patterns might be due to toxins in the kidneys, trauma, or some other toxic condition. Boron, nickel or cadmium toxicity may play a role.
In some of these cases, several years on the program may be required to “unlock the body chemistry”. Until this occurs, one may not experience significant change in the hair macromineral pattern.
Persistent Four Lows – Some people remain in a four lows pattern for a year or more. This can occur because the person is not following the program well enough. Stress can definitely slow down the time needed to complete a four lows session.
However, at times four lows persists occurs because the person has a lot of life planning to complete, and simply needs more time in a four lows pattern.
Rocking – A back and forth movement from test to test, from fast to slow oxidation and back again. This is an excellent indicator of deep healing. For details, please read the Rocking Progression article.
Steadies – Some people’s hair mineral charts remain quite similar from test to test. This can occur if a person does not follow their nutritional balancing program very well. However, it can also occur even if one does follow their program.
Tissue Biopsy – Hair analysis is a soft tissue mineral biopsy. It does not measure the total body load of a mineral.
Averaging – Each hair reading represents an average rate of mineral accumulation over a several-month period.
Bioavailability – A very high hair reading or a very low hair reading often indicate biounavailability of the mineral.
Summation – Each hair reading represents a sum of metabolic events.
Systems – Always consider all the hair readings together as a system. Never consider them as isolated or separate from one another.
Stress Response – The hair readings represent the body’s response to stress.
Holism – The hair mineral test is very holistic, meaning that it reflects genetics, upbringing, lifestyle, diet, drinking water, attitudes, emotions, thoughts and more.
Primary And Secondary Readings – Certain ratios and levels are primary, while others are secondary and less important.
Dynamic – A hair mineral test is a “snapshot” of an ever-changing, dynamic life process.
Layers of Adaptations And Compensations – One hair test represents or reflects the uppermost layer of many layers of adaptations or compensations that have occurred in a person’s life.
Early Indicator – Hair is often an early indicator of physical and emotional imbalances compared with blood, urine, saliva and various scans.
Flight Analogy – A metaphor to help understand hair analysis is that of flying.
