Did you know that you can analyze the hair on top of your head to discover your own unique health and wellness profile? By looking at your own hair, you can determine where nutrient imbalances may linger, discover any deficits you may have and see where you may be harboring toxicities in the body? Using the scientific measure of hair analysis, you can explore these aspects and many more…
Lisa M. Rufsholm, CNC is someone who is very familiar with hair analysis and how the process works. “At 36 years old, I had ended an exhausting corporate job and became a stay at home mom to 4 daughters all within a 5 year timespan, leaving me depleted to the cell,” Rufsholm explains. “I was having heart issues, and went through the medical treadmill stress test, only to find no answers.” Lisa was even referred to a psychologist to try and help her explore what may or may not have been causing her heart issues.
But Rufsholm found a light at the end of the tunnel when a friend’s mother, Dr. Marcia
Gutkowski, introduced her to the scientific study of hair analysis. Dr. Gutkowski had been mentored by the brilliant Dr. Paul Eck, another scientist in the field of hair analysis. After she submitted the sample of her hair for the testing, she was amazed to learn more about what might have been causing her heart to beat irregularily. “My sodium and potassium levels were too low to regulate my heart beat,” Lisa discovered. So, Dr. Gutkowski started Rufsholm on a nutritional balancing program and after just two weeks of following that program, Lisa experienced relief from her symptoms. Rufsholm shared,”my husband called and thanked her [Dr. Gutkowski] for giving him back his wife.”
Amazed by the results that Lisa experienced, she became passionate about helping others find the same sort of relief that she did from hair analysis. So she began studying and working with Dr. Gutkowski in 2007. Later in 2011, she opened her own company working alongside another pioneer in the hair analysis field, Dr. Larry Wilson. Rufsholm says, “I design a specific program to support my clients needs and help them to rebuild their systems.” Lisa explains,”the process looks at minerals, heavy metals, glucose on the cellular level, kidney and liver trends, thyroid and adrenal health as well as cell permeability.” Once the test results come back, she offers phone support along with an all natural, 44-year proven supplement system.
Now you may be wondering – what if someone is healthy, exercises and has no health issues to speak of? Would they benefit from exploring hair analysis? The answer is – yes! We all are so individual in our genetic make-up and how our bodies process the foods we eat and the environments that we live in. Two people may follow the same dietary protocol and exercise plan but when looking at their nutrients, deficiencies and toxicity levels, in the end, they won’t show the same profiles. Age, environment, your early years of life, how long you have been taking care of yourself and the foods you consume all play into this your health and wellness profile. And don’t forget, each person’s body processes foods and nutrition in different ways.
Rufsholm has worked with clients who have overcome heart issues, cancers, lung diseases, Crohns, diabetes, schizophrenia, arthritis and allergies to name a few.
