OLIGOSCAN

OligoScan  is a revolutionary technique that measures  heavy metals and minerals in the tissue.  The test is performed in office with immediate results. 


The OligoScan technology utilizes spectrophotometry to obtain results on the amount of trace elements and heavy metals that exist within tissue, calibrated specifically for a specific area of the body. This is a quantitative analytical methodology, which consists in measuring the absorbance level or the optical density of a specific chemical or mineral substance.

The basic principle is that every type of compound, regardless if it is chemical or mineral based, absorbs, emits or reflects light (electromagnetic radiation) over a certain specific range of wavelengths.  The more the sample is concentrated, the more it absorbs the light within the limits of proportionality expressed in the law Beer-Lambert.

Treating the Patient, Not the Condition

  • Mineral imbalances are prolific in today's society due to mineral depletion of the soil, processed foods, and high consumption of acid related foods.
  • Mineral absorption and assimilation problems are often seen with Celiac and Gluten intolerance, IBS, Ulcerative Colitis, Crohns, and Osteoporosis
  • Metal fillings age with time, developing micro cracks where mercury can vaporize into living tissue and increase heavy metal toxic loads, which can contribute to cognitive impairment, dementia and Alzheimer's
  • Heavy metal toxicity has been implicated as a trigger for auto-immune diseases, such as Hashimoto's, Multiple Sclerosis, Lupus, and Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Biomarkers identifying mineral imbalances are excellent indicators of bone health, which is a major concern for women during hormonal transitions
