If you’re like most of my patients, you worry about heavy metals and other toxins poisoning us through our food supply, water – and our environment in general. And you also know that with modern farming practices, pesticides and herbicides are used in great quantities. At the same time, you’re probably also aware that the land is getting less and less rich in key minerals and vitamins which help us deal with these toxins. This means that you probably worry because you just don’t know how much of a problem heavy metals and other toxins are to you and your family. And you worry that they’re making you all sicker and sicker – and you’re not sure what to do about it…
I know because I see the impact of heavy metal toxicity every day in my clinic.
The Global Heavy Metal Toxicity Problem
Heavy metal toxicity is a real problem for all of us because it can make us very sick. Famed American health researcher, Dr Joe Mercola discusses the impact of such toxins on our health in this article: https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2014/05/08/heavy-metals-glyphosate-health-effects.aspx. In it he discusses the role of heavy metals and pesticides on our bodies and what we can do to deal with this onslaught.
Because I know all too well how heavy metals and other toxins can make us sick, when I see people in my clinic, I always check for two key issues:
- Heavy metal toxicity
- Mineral levels
The reason I check for both of these is because we use our key minerals (sodium, potassium, magnesium, zinc and sulphur – among others) to help us remove heavy metals from our systems. And I always check for heavy metals because I need to assess the level of exposure my patients have to these health-debilitating toxins.
Usually, when I check these things I find high levels of heavy metals (such as Mercury, Cadmium and Lead) and low levels of key detoxification minerals (such as Magnesium, Sulphur and Zinc). This is a double hit – because not only are these patients being overwhelmed with heavy metals, they don’t have enough key minerals to get rid of the toxic load that they’re experiencing.
When I give them the results, my patients usually say to me, ‘I wish that I knew this information ages ago – then we could have done something about it, and I wouldn’t have had to suffer so long…’
I agree that we all wait too long to get key information about our health…
The Challenge With Heavy Metal Toxicity
The main challenge for integrative and holistic health practitioners like me is that heavy metals and other toxins produce vastly different symptoms in people. Some may experience weight gain, while others have fatigue. Some get gut problems, while others suffer emotional issues. Some experience physical pain, while others have thyroid or adrenal problems.
The reason this happens is that there are so many different detoxification pathways that can be affected by an overload of toxins and/or a deficiency of key minerals. You may be low in Zinc and high in the heavy metal Cadmium giving you fatigue and physical pain. Another person, however, may high levels of endocrine disruptors affecting their hormone levels and low levels of sulphur so that they can’t eliminate them through their liver – resulting in weight gain and depression.
Because of this massive variety of toxins and mineral imbalances, you can’t just look at a person or listen to their symptoms to know that they’re suffering from heavy metals or other toxin overload, or an imbalance in their minerals.
Testing for Heavy Metal Toxicity and Key Minerals
You have to test…
BUT – there simply aren’t many tests that reliably provide this information…
Some blood tests provide useful RBC (Red Blood Cell) analyses to determine levels of minerals – but information about blood doesn’t necessarily reflect what’s in your tissues. Hair Mineral Analysis can be helpful – but it doesn’t provide up-to-the-minute information.
You need something that’s reliable, quick and effective in identifying tissue mineral status – and tissue heavy metal and other toxin status…
The Oligoscan – Heavy Metal Toxicity and Key Mineral Analysis
In steps the Oligoscan…
I’ve been using the powerful Oligoscan for many, many years. I find it really reliable in determining a person’s body tissue mineral and heavy metal status. It usually correlates very closely with results I get from Hair Mineral Analysis.
The Oligoscan is very easy to use. All you do is place clean hands on the device and it uses Spectrophotometry (a method used to measure how much a chemical absorbs light) to provide a readout of different heavy metals and other toxins, as well your health-promoting minerals. This is instantly relayed to your practitioner’s computer, and they can print out the report for you and then discuss how to get you better…
There’s no pain – no pin pricks, no cutting of your hair.
It’s super quick – no waiting days or weeks for test results.
It’s accurate and reliable so you can start your treatment plan to get better immediately!

Detox Diagnosis Program – Save Money And Get Well – At The Same Time!
I believe so strongly in the technology, that I’d like to make it easier for you to experience the difference that comes from knowing your toxin and mineral status, so I’ve teamed up with my fantastic naturopaths to do so.
Normally, if you do an Oligoscan, it costs $150.00. And then you need to meet with a Naturopath to discuss the results and set up a Treatment Plan, which costs over $100.00. That means that, all up, you’re looking at over $250.00.
For the months of October and November, I’d like to save you money AND get you really important information to help you get well. So, instead of paying over $250.00, getting an Oligoscan and a Naturopathic Treatment Session will only cost you $197! That’s a saving of well over $50.00 – or 20% off!
I call it my Detox Diagnosis Program because once you know what your Mineral and Toxin status is, you’ll want to start immediately on a detox program – and Spring is the best time of the year to do so!
All you need to do now to get your health back on track and find out what nasty toxins are lurking around in your system is to call BGH on (07) 5522 8902 and ask to book in for your Detox Diagnosis Program, and we’ll take care of you. You’ll be able to come in and complete your Oligoscan, see a Naturopath to develop a Detox Treatment Plan and get the Heavy Metal and Mineral Status Report – all on the same day! You’ll come away with specific ideas for how to start your detoxing – and how to build up your healthy minerals so you can do so easily and effectively.
