Good to hear back from you...kind of wondered what happened to you!
I understand where you are coming from. You might consider doing your next hair test through a different lab, though. Ones that don't wash the hair seem to do a better job of analysis. ARL and TEI are the only two I know of that fit that category. I'm an ARL fan because 1)it's the only one I've used, and their analyses have correlated with my symptoms and 2)Dr. Eck, the founder, did testing on healthy young athletes to come up with his ideal mineral #'s. IMHO, it's better to have an ideal rather than a wide range of normal. Many of us fit into a range of normal in blood tests and yet feel lousy. So that's my last suggestion for you! Unless you ask for others, of course.
God bless you as you find the answers to your health challenges.
