Urine Toxic and Essential Element Assessment
Similar to hair element assessment , urine element testing can be used to measure levels of both essential and toxic elements in your body. Measuring essential elements provides valuable information about your nutritional intake and how your body absorbs nutrients.
Toxic elements, which you can be exposed to through common household products, can block the beneficial effects of essential elements, as well as directly trigger health symptoms. These toxic elements, which include aluminum, arsenic, cadmium, lead, mercury and tin, can lead to serious health concerns including central nervous system disorders, heart disease and digestive difficulties.

A urine element test often includes a baseline measurement and a follow-up measurement after a chelating agent is given. This chelating agent is safe for your body and helps encourage the release of toxic elements from fluid around the cells so they can be eliminated in the urine. You may receive a chelating agent via IV therapy or in pill form.
