Oligo Scan

The Oligo Scan is another valuable, noninvasive test we use at the Natural Healing Center. Using spectrophotometry, light is sent through particular areas of tissue of the hand and results in a bar graph report noting deficiencies and excesses of minerals, trace elements, and heavy metals.

This “real time” test gives an immediate report you can act on.



Some of the elements whose levels are determined are:

  • Magnesium
  • Copper
  • Zinc
  • Chromium
  • Molybdenum
  • Iodine
  • Selenium
  • Cadmium
  • Mercury
  • Lead
  • Arsenic
  • Aluminum
  • …many more

Optimal mineral levels are required to keep the body functioning properly. They promote good bone and teeth health, oxygen and energy levels, nerve and muscle function, as well as favorable brain health and immune system function.

Heavy metals have been implicated in many disease processes including Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, thyroid issues, Parkinson’s disease, cancer, heart disease and more!

Optimizing your mineral status and reducing toxic heavy metal levels help your body to avoid disease processes and/or allow it to function properly and heal.
