An alloy in the metallurgy field is a combination of two or more metals that, when melted together, take on new properties that are not present in the component parts.  A common example of a metallic alloy is steel, which is a combination of iron mixed with some chromium, nickel and perhaps molybdenum or other metals.  Other common alloys include stainless steel, brass and others.  In each case, the alloy has properties that are not present in any of the components of the alloy, but only appear when the metals are mixed together.

In mathematical terms, one can say that an alloy is a situation in which the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. 




            We do not usually use the word alloy to describe a hair mineral analysis of a person or animal, but we can because the concept is valid and it is a very good way to understand a hair mineral chart.  We can say for sure that each hair mineral chart involves a mix of minerals that creates or causes qualities of physical, emotional and mental health that would not be present otherwise.

            Many examples can be cited.  For example, the familiar pattern we call slow oxidation consists of greater amounts of calcium and magnesium in the soft tissue or hair, mixed with lesser amounts of sodium and potassium.  This may be viewed as an alloy or mix of minerals that confers special properties to the body and personality of a person.  They include a tendency for fatigue, apathy, reduced adrenal and thyroid glandular activity, depression, a tendency for a chronic low blood sugar level, a tendency for constipation, reduced ability to sweat, dry skin, introversion, and more.




            Alloys are of great interest in hair mineral testing to identify personality patterns that lead to criminal behavior, since we seek hard to avoid this in society.  For example, cadmium, copper, chromium, manganese, mercury, nickel and lead are often involved in violence, and each gives the criminal specific qualities.  Here are some of the most obvious ones:


Cadmium: confers an extreme hardness and often a daring quality on the personality, perhaps with total disregard for the life and property of the victim.


Chromium:   toxic forms of chromium in the brain can cause extreme violence that is quite psychopathic, meaning difficult to explain logically.


Copper: confers a more unstable and emotional nature.  Such people may be totally normal until they are pushed too hard or become very stressed for some reason.  This is seen in some domestic violence situations in which the person is fine most of the time.


Lead: called the horror mineral, lead seems to cause some criminals to be attracted to horrible crimes such as mutilating their victims or torturing them.


Manganese: has some qualities similar to copper, but without the emotion.  Criminals with manganese are schizophenic or schizoid and totally unemotional about their criminal activity.  Several school shootings involved welders exposed to toxic manganese.  Another form causes “manganese madness” in some manganese miners. 


Mercury: though not as often associated with violence, when combined with some of the other toxic metals listed here, mercury confers a certain “crazy” or “whacky” quality to the personality.


Nickel: Nickel also confers a certain hardness to the personality, along with intense anger and usually suicidal thoughts.  One thinks of criminals who kill their own family or others, and then kill themselves in despair.


This is just one possible example of how alloys work in practice in our bodies and minds.  This article will be expanded in the future.
