Editorial Reviews

Review

Dr. Wilson clearly demonstrates his extensive knowledge and clinical expertise. I highly recommend this text for all clinicians. -- Benjamin Sucher, D.O.

Dr. Wilson's book is easy to follow and is a very valuable book for anyone interested in trace minerals. -- Dr. Abram Ber, MD

Mineral analysis is a non-invasive screening test that can provide a great amount of information inexpensively and rapidly about how one's body is responding to stress.

The mineral test can be used to predict and help prevent over 30 common health conditions. One can also use the test to learn about the adequacy of one's diet, one's stage of stress and oxidation or metabolic type.

Mineral analysis can help take the guesswork out of recommending foods and nutritional supplements. The procedure has wide application for children, adults, pregnant women, those with illnesses and those wishing to prevent illness and to optimize health.

Nutritional Balancing and Hair Mineral Analysis is an excellent introduction to the subject for practitioners and for the general public as well. -- From the publisher

This is the best book avalable about hair mineral analysis. It is the greatest book about my work. -- Dr. Paul C. Eck, tissue mineral analysis pioneer

Finally it touches on some very well researched health issues that is not related to mineral analysis but is good to know and use to achieve better health.
Toksik
If you're interested in true, deep healing, and not just symptom removal - nutritional balancing is exactly that.

I had a hair analysis done by Dr. Wilson and I also purchased this book. After years of trying to figure out what was wrong with me and why I was so tired, I finally found light at the end of the tunnel. The book helped to explain everything that the analysis showed - it described my symptoms exactly. It was absolutely amazing. I recommend this book, and the services of Dr. Wilson to everyone.

There is so much information in this book that you will have to read it, read it again, then read it again to be able to simply get the gist of how it all works together. If you are into mineral balancing at all, you need this as a resource! It is a great investment.

The only "negative" thing is that it expands your thinking so much that it may raise more questions than it answers.

This book would blow any nutritionist's mind. The information is fairly dense, in a technical, biochemical manner, and one would probably benefit from at least a light background in biochemistry to maintain decent retention on the first read through. Still, if you want to know how minerals and metals (especially their lack and toxicity respectively) impact your health, this is the go-to book. In order to improve health, these elements *must* be addressed correctly and Dr. Wilson has laid out the how and why. I have followed the principles in this book and have experienced substantial improvement (and near healing) of a disease I was told that I would have the rest of my life and would only get worse. Out of the hundreds of health books I've read, this one takes the cake. It demonstrates Dr. Wilson's mastery of the principles of holistic health. As the paradigm shifts, this information will save a lot of lives.

After being ill for almost ten years without ever receiving a diagnosis, I came across Dr. Wilson's work. I embarked on a health journey like no other and being on his program has helped me to reverse a lot of chronic and debilitating conditions. The book is a great companion for anybody who is on the Nutritional Balancing Program as well as anybody who is interested in learning more about the body's biochemistry. It is a technical book but a fascinating read nonetheless.

Format: Paperback
This book is must read if you are interested in health or nutrition. It explains in detail the role of each mineral in the body and what can deficiency or overload of a mineral do to your body. It also explains how these minerals interact and how to interpret a hair sample mineral analysis. It touches on many diseases or condition that your body may have a tendency towards and explains some theory behind the interpretation. Finally it touches on some very well researched health issues that is not related to mineral analysis but is good to know and use to achieve better health.

Explains how to use hair mineral testing to asess thyroid and adrenal function. Some of the information is also available on his website.

This is a novel approach that fitted my already diagnosed low thyroid and adrenal output diagnoses. The dietary appraches recommended also suit me just about perfectly. The book was spot-on in many ways, for me at least.

I didn't know whether to be pleased that most of my ratios put me in the most severe 'at huge and imminent risk for cardiac events and cancer' - as it is always good to get very severely abnormal and scary test results when you are in fact, very scarily ill and ridiculously severely disabled - or scared.

(I'm housebound and 99% bedbound, and very restricted with speech and tasks of daily living, and have severe cardiac insufficiency, etc. as part of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, or M.E.)

But either way, I appreciated having the information and would recommend this book to others with severe or chronic illness. This is a really interesting read and the book is well designed and organised. If possible, read it together with the author's brilliant book on saunas and lots of the articles on his website.

In his must-read article 'Deep Healing Versus Symptom Removal' Dr Lawrence Wilson writes,

"Deep healing is quite different from symptom removal. Symptom removal is the type of doctoring offered by the medical profession and by most holistic doctors as well. Symptoms are the focus, by and large, and the goal is to make them go away. The problem is that symptoms often point to deeper imbalances that are not usually not addressed.

Deep healing is a much more profound process. It has to do with restoring the body to its former state of health.
