The retained pattern is an important newer mineral pattern. It has two variants:
1. The first is present when the levels of six or more of the nutrient minerals decrease on a retest hair mineral analysis.
The nutrient minerals are calcium, magnesium, iron, copper, manganese, zinc, chromium, selenium, and phosphorus.
2. This is present when ten or more of all the hair mineral levels decrease on a retest.
With this pattern one must include the toxic metals - lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic, aluminum and nickel. This pattern is seen when a person is doing down sex or down hugging.
II. THE MEANING OF RETAINED OR ALL DOWN PATTERN
This pattern indicates the body is retaining minerals. The usual reason is that the body is busy manufacturing chemicals. As a result, it uses up its reserves of some or all of them and does not want them to find their way into the skin and hair where they will be lost to the body.
Holding on to the minerals causes a lower reading in the hair tissue.
The special case of retention of the toxic metals as well as the nutrient minerals is more difficult to explain. We believe it occurs because the body can better transmute the toxic metals into lighter elements. As a result, the levels of the toxic metals decreases.
It may also be due to a powerful building mode of activity in which the elimination of toxic metals temporarily decreases. See the section below for details.
BUILDING MODE VERSUS ELIMINATIVE MODE
When the body is in a all coming out pattern, it is strongly in an eliminative mode of activity. When the body is in a retention or all down pattern, it is in a building mode. Both of these activities are very good and necessary for healing.
In the building mode, elimination slows down. This can also cause the levels of the toxic metals to decrease on a hair mineral retest.
This related pattern is present when the levels of one or more minerals dips very low. The criteria for this varies with each mineral.
In this pattern, the affected mineral or minerals goes into a poor eliminator pattern.
This pattern can occur due to preparing to handle a stressor. In some cases, it is due to the person needing but not doing the pulling down procedure. For details, read The Pulling Down Procedure.
The way to tell this pattern is that the level or levels of minerals become extremely low. For the exact criteria for each mineral, read Poor Eliminator Patterns.
