Diagnosis
The following tests and procedures may be helpful in diagnosing Heavy Metal Toxicity and/or other chronic conditions.
Nutrition Response Testing we muscle test for heavy metals whenever your body shows up for them.
Hair Analysis; you can have this done to see what heavy metals may show up. Your hair holds on to heavy metals as it grows and can be tested to see what you might be retaining.
Where Metals Come From
Metals can come from many different sources some of the most common are Medicines, Amalgam Fillings in your teeth, Seafood (all bottom feeders like shrimp, crabs, lobster, clams and oysters). Also farm raised fish can contain Heavy Metals because they are raised in shallow water. Wild caught deep water fish are the best seafood to eat. Metals can also come from pesticides and herbicides on foods, water supplies like well water ( which should be tested for heavy metals) you may have lead pipes in your house or they could be from fumes in your environment or from your work place.

WHAT IS WELLNESS? By Dr. Betsy Bartlett D.C.

Do you think you are well? What do you think wellness is, do you think it’s absence of symptoms even if they are disguised by medication? Well I see and treat people all day and somehow people think they are in good health if they have absence of symptoms or even some of them think some symptoms are normal such as headaches, joint aches, backaches, stiffness, constipation and many more to numerous to mention. Well I am here to tell you no symptom is normal it is a warning that something is wrong in your body. If you listen to your body it will tell you when something is wrong, it might be a fleeting pain or Headache or Acid Re-flux or something worse like the Flu or a Cold or Bronchitis or heaven forbid even worse maybe Pneumonia, a Heart attack or Cancer.

Well you can avoid these conditions by listening to the little messages your body is constantly giving you. However I have found after many years of practice that people are taught to ignore these messages from their body or they are told they are a hypochondriacs because the Doctor can’t find anything wrong with them yet, yet is the key word here if you wait until the doctor finds something wrong with you to do anything about your health you may have a long road back to get to Vibrant Health if you take the right road. The Medical Professions tests are designed to pick up really bad stuff, life threatening stuff, why have people been so brainwashed to think that is what they have to do and this is the only way. Our health system is in a very sad state and deteriorating as we speak.

I have watched over the years 35 to be exact and am very concerned to see our american people getting sicker and sicker as the years go by and just excepting it as the way it is. Wake up it is not the way it is you have allowed it by not taking responsibility for your body and your health you have given your power away to people who’s business is disease care not wellness. They are interested in treating Disease not helping you get and remain well that would put them out of business. They have an interest in you getting sicker and sicker.

Let me say here our new OBAMA CARE is going to now allow you to have less disease care at more expense to you, and shove it down your throat whether you want it or not. Personally I don’t want anything they have to offer but that’s me I am definitely not the norm. I have always taken care of my own health and don’t participate in the Medical way. But most people are not where I am I understand that, but if you want to live long and be healthy I highly recommend you find someone like me to help you because you will not find it in the Medical Model. If you start now and take charge of your health you may be able to survive this new Health (Disease) Care System.
