Fecal metal analysis reflects the dietary metal intake. Minerals, trace elements and potentially toxic metals may be found in food, drink, medication and nutritional supplements. Whatever metals are not absorbed are excreted via various pathways, including the hepato-intestinal system, and for certain elements such as antimony and uranium, biliary excretion into feces is the primary route of natural excretion from the body.
Certain foods such as fish from polluted water may be high in arsenic or mercury, and consumption naturally increases the fecal metal content. Studies performed at Trace Minerals International indicate that most algae products contain various amounts of potentially toxic metals and through fecal testing we evaluate metal excretion.
Due to exposure of mercury in the oral cavity, people with amalgam fillings typically show higher mercury concentration in feces than individuals without amalgams.
Your payment of $300.00 covers the cost of a private health coaching session with Wendy Myers. She will interpret the test results and make recommendations on how to detox the metals found in your test.
The lab requires an additional $115.00 in order to process the test and provide the results. This lab fee is not included and must be paid directly to the lab. Instructions for submitting this payment will accompany the rest of your test kit.
The total cost for this test is $415.00.
