Testing and analysis are important in identifying health conditions, developing a treatment plan and monitoring its effectiveness.

Typical Western medicine testing includes blood tests, urine tests and imaging. There has to be a lot of organ damage before it will show up in a blood test. When you take a urine test, it only shows what the kidneys have eliminated. And x-rays and CT scans can miss important information.

Hair testing is also a diagnostic tool.  It it used in forensics, drug testing and mineral/heavy metal testing.


Forensic testing

Forensics refers to the various scientific tools and techniques to find and evaluate evidence at a crime scene. There are three basic types of forensic hair testing: analyzing DNA collected from the root of a hair, testing the hair shaft for drugs or nutritional deficiencies and looking at the hair under a microscope to determine where it came from – a particular person or animal.


Drug testing

Hair is frequently used for drug testing (alcohol, opiates, cocaine marijuana, etc.) because it accumulates toxins. The drugs will also leach away slowly over a period of 90 days. Blood samples often need to be processed within 24 hours and urine samples are usually good for only 2 to 3 days.

The test will not show the amount of drugs that may have been consumed, only that certain substances were ingested.


Mineral/metal testing

Hair can also be tested for mineral deficiencies and the presence of heavy metals.

Minerals help regulate the enzyme system. Enzymes speed up metabolism and chemical reactions in the body and are also an important part of digestion. A mineral deficiency or excess minerals can cause various health issues.

Heavy (high-density) metals like arsenic, cadmium, mercury, chromium, thallium, and lead are highly toxic and can poison the body.

Other heavy metals, like silver, iron, cobalt and zinc are usually harmless.

Hair tests for mineral deficiency and heavy metals only check for the absence of minerals or the presence of metals. A mineral deficiency doesn’t tell you why you have a mineral deficiency. The presence of metals doesn’t tell you why your body can’t eliminate the metals. You still don’t know what is causing these problems.


Cellular damage and your health

Toxins, chemicals, viruses, bacteria, and other pathogens can damage your cells. If the damage affects your lymphatic and immune systems, the cells will not be repaired or replaced. Too many damaged cells in the body can cause serious health problems.

Chinese medicinal herbs have unique properties that activate cells and restart the body’s self-healing abilities. The herbs help eliminate inflammation, repair organs and restore internal body processes.


A new type of hair test

There are thousands of enzymes in every cell of the human body. Enzymes are catalysts that increase chemical reactions. Each body function (circulation, digestion, etc.) is controlled by a certain type of enzyme.

When you detox the body, you get rid of toxins, parasites, and other pathogens preventing the cells (and enzymes) from working properly.

Dr. Kwang developed a new type of hair test to identify what cells were damaged, which Chinese herbs were needed to repair the damage, and in what sequence they should be used.

The first step was pairing cellular damage (enzyme malfunction) with specific illnesses and diseases. This was followed by the creation of a new method of hair testing to find the malfunctioning cells. The last step was matching cellular damage to each herb’s detox and repair qualities and characteristics.

This new testing protocol resulted in a highly effective detox with permanent results.
