Hair Analysis & Systemic Element Levels Testing

Our biochemist has chosen Doctors Data Inc. to provide our customers with hair elements analysis. With a solid reputation, they have been our laboratory of choice since 1979. Doctors Data has recently described this particular test as:

A measurement of toxic and essential elements

Inexpensive and noninvasive

Extensive research has established that scalp hair element levels are related to human systemic levels. The strength of this relationship varies for specific elements, and many researchers consider hair as the tissue of choice for toxic and several nutrient elements. Unlike blood, hair element levels are not regulated by homeostatic mechanisms. Thus, deviations in hair element levels often appear prior to overt symptoms, and hair analysis can thereby be a valuable preliminary tool for predicting the development of physiological abnormalities.

The volume of, at least, one packed tablespoon of hair is required to complete an analysis. Hair samples taken from the chest of animals and back of the head on humans are preferable.


Preventative Health Care

Vita Royal Products Inc. was established in 1977 in response to the recycled contaminants in food act that was passed in the same year. This act allowed, and continues to allow, the recycling of heavy metals and hazardous chemical waste into fertilizers that supply nutrients for the crops that feed our animals and, in some cases, people as well. These toxins are absorbed into the crops and deposited into the animals or humans who eat these crops. Livestock, raised for human consumption, is produced with the processed versions of these crops. Also, the pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides that these animals are exposed to finds it's way to the human food chain when we consume them.

In today's world, saving money on your medical bills mean's changing certain aspects of your lifestyle. Ironically, the very things you can do to increase your long term quality of life tend to be the very things that will keep you away from large medical bills. For over 30 years, we've been offering the tools, materials and instructions for proven techniques to do just that.

Why Our Products & Protocols Are Superior to the Competition

We only promote the use of products that have been approved by our biochemist.

We do not make any products which contain fillers, so a little goes a long way.

We only use chemical form of nutrients that are engineered for maximum bioavailability.

Most importantly, our products and protocols work to increase your quality of life by restoring normal, healthy biochemistry in the face of environmental factors and lifestyle attributes working against you. From metabolic syndromes to autoimmune diseases, we can help a very wide range of people.

Defusing the Genetic Time Bomb

by Linsey McLean

When The Supreme Being set the world in motion, He also established universal laws of order were established by which all of nature would be bound. Those divine laws rule everything about us, and must be respected if that orderliness is ever to continue.

The Genetic Code

In all living things, physical links between one generation and the next are genes, the most basic units of heredity. They arrange themselves in chains, like beads on a thread, to form chromosomes. These tiny packages control each and every enzyme system, cell growth and body formation with a most awesome accuracy, so that each species propagates physical forms like themselves.

In propagation, chromosomes and their genes replicate themselves chemically to create carbon copies of themselves. In simple animal and plants, that is all that is needed on the genetic end to form a new individual exactly like its parent, but in higher forms of life, sexes are divided, with each contributing only half of the genetic material of the new individual to-be. Mother Nature created this system to give a better ability to adapt and survive in a changing world.

More diverse genetic combinations can be made and, therefore, more diverse physical forms exist within each species. Each offspring is not exactly like the parents for two good reasons. It has been suggested that some races adapt and thrive better in hot tropical climates than others who are more at home in Arctic conditions. The same theory is true for other traits in both plants and animals. Each is best suited for a particular environment, but many can live comfortably elsewhere by making adaptations.

Secondly, some genes are stronger than others; that is they exert a dominance over others, controlling the same trait. We call the strong ones "dominant" and the weaker ones "recessive". In man, for example, brown eyes are dominant over blue eyes. If you get one gene for brown eyes from one parent and another gene for blue eyes from the other parent, you will probably have brown eyes. Your brown eyes are the physical expression of your gene type called your "phenotype". Your "genotype", or actual gene type, is really "brown/blue", as you still carry the genes from both. If you got two brown genes from your parents, your genotype would be "brown/brown", and your phenotype, or true physical expression would be brown eyes too.

Looking on the outside, we can't usually tell just what gene combination an individual has, but we can make a good guess by looking at the parents and grandparents. Genotype is very important, even though we can't see it directly, in coping with genetic flaws as we shall see later.

When Things Go Awry

Since each gene is responsible for an enzyme system or set of systems, one seemingly minor change occurring during replication of a gene can have devastating effects. Indeed, over 99% of all mistakes that happen, which we call mutations, are for the worse, meaning that the end result of those mutations is some sort of harm to the resulting individual.

Many mutations cause death of the embryo even before birth, while some that live develop crippling birth defects. Many others are not even bothered, except in certain situations, stresses or environments. A few familiar types of man's severest genetic flaws are mongolism, cystic fibrosis and cerebral palsy.

Some mutations carry both good and bad effects, such as the one that forms blood cells into a sickle or half moon shape. The bad effect, of course, is sickle cell anemia, but the good effect is a partial resistance to malaria. In the tropical areas around the Mediterranean where malaria is present, the frequency of finding this gene is higher than in other parts of the world, because its benefits are felt and have survived.

The Practical Application

The genotype of an individual is pretty much a permanent, unalterable record of inheritance. But knowing and understanding the chemistry proceeding to the physical expression of that genotype, its phenotype, can help in controlling its severity if the trait is harmful.

A genetic flaw is like a time bomb, permanent and unalterable, but it cannot explode until something or someone in the environment lights the fuse. It is only a tendency, not an absolute. It just so happens that in many of the most severe cases, the damage is already done before we have the time or have acquired the knowledge to intervene. There are some interventions that help control the effects of genetic flaws.

Let's use diabetes as an example. Diabetes is considered hereditary, because genes that predispose faulty sugar regulation tend to run in families. But they tend to be weak genes, which is why they are difficult to chart or follow, and also why everybody who carries them does not develop the disease.

Now, suppose you do carry them. Yes, you do run a higher risk of becoming diabetic, but now that you know you carry them, you can control the bomb by watching your diet. You know you may be more sensitive to sugar "junkie" diets than others who don't carry those genes. You have now taken steps to a sophisticated intervention and reduced or maybe even eliminated the chances of your time bomb going off. You are, in a way, practicing genetic intervention, and in a positive way.

Another example is cancer. Many years ago, the World Health Organization determined that 80% of all cancers that affect man are environmentally produced, meaning that they could have been prevented. Some cancers tend to run in families, the reason why some people get cancer when exposed to only fractions of the dose of the same carcinogens that leave others unscathed (the former people have genetic predispositions, shorter fuses on their time bombs).

But just because you may carry this genetic time bomb is no excuse to panic. You simply become more aware of carcinogens in your environment, avoid what you can avoid, control what you can control, and take responsibility to prevent your fuse from being lit.

One, You Buy 'Em, Two, You try 'Em . . .

If you've ever spent much time at race tracks, you've probably heard a jingle that's as old as the hills. Most of the "good ole boys" sing it in their sleep: "One, you buy `em - Two, you try 'em - three, you pass 'em - but four white feet with a snip on the nose - cut off his head, and feed him to the crows!"

We know that coat color in horses, affected by many pairs of genes, is not always predictable. We also know that white skin and white feet are not particularly favored by Mother Nature in the wild, as evidenced by the low gene frequency of white feet, skin and other white markings in purely wild herds. Some studies have also been done on tame horses that escaped to the wild out West and were monitored through succeeding winters. A significantly higher proportion of dark colored horses, bays and blacks, survived.

What made the difference? Since white markings are flashy, they are more visible to predators. Some also say white feet are softer. White skin is definitely more sensitive to the sun and to allergenic responses from eating alsike and other white clover. With coat color being affected by so many genes, it may be that the degree of white expressed is proportional to the amount of albino type genes the animal carries. Albinos are very sensitive and weaker in any species (the genes are recessive, making them difficult to follow, and unpredictable too).

I have observed that 87% of all the horses that are brought to me for consultations about, have two or more white feet with white on the face, and by far, are also chestnut. Yes, there are exceptions, as there always are, but this seems to be the trend. I believe that chestnuts, with their white markings, much favored by man who controls their breeding artificially, are the blue-eyed blondes of the horse world. They are just more sensitive to abuses from the environment. Since man likes the "flash", he does not necessarily select positively in breeding for the same traits that Mother Nature would, and the gene frequencies of the sensitive types are allowed to build up.

So, Does It Really Matter?

Most horses now have comfortable barns, nice hay and rich grain that are not provided in the wild, so that animals that would have been weeded out by Nature are now thriving in their adapted environments. Pleasure horses, many show horses and pets that have come to expect the comforts and protection of man, no longer have to worry about their genetic fuses being lit. The excessive stresses of racing and performance horses, however, are a different story. The athletic expectations approach the limit, and sometimes, sadly, go beyond what any performance horse can achieve.
Does this mean that chestnuts with "four whites" and a blaze are worthless? Heavens, no! Not any more than a blue-eyed blonde; but you would probably think twice about hiring such a blonde to work as a lifeguard in the hot Florida sun daily. Sure, there are exceptions to every rule, there always are, but most of them just couldn't take it. This is probably why that "One, you buy 'em" jingle is mostly restricted to the track and other severe stress environments, and why many pleasure horse owners have never even heard it. One of my favorite trainers recently coined a phrase for herself; "Red horse plus white feet equals blue trainer", or the "red, white and blue syndrome." Apparently she has noticed the same phenomena in her standardbreds.

I have also noticed that quite a few Quarter horses of the Three Bars line seem to have a higher requirement for magnesium than other lines. Some research has been done on Thoroughbreds that has shown higher need for this mineral in particularly nervous horses.

The Three Bars horses with that particular time bomb all show hyperactivity, short attention span, difficulty in training for pleasure, and difficulty in relaxation. They are also very sensitive to sudden noise and movements, are worse in late winter and spring, are not mean in the least, but can be dangerous in their unpredictability. Many are simply labeled "crazy". Supplementing these horses with elemental magnesium as an amino acid chelate and lowering the carbohydrate intake from grains by providing a high protein grain without alfalfa, has produced the most amazing results in as few as three days. Of course, we have to also provide a balanced supplement of the other minerals too, to prevent deficiencies because of imbalance, particularly calcium. (See "The Jekyll and Hyde Personalities of Minerals").

Since the inherent sensitivity does not change, it should be recognized that horses will relapse in the same short amount of time, if they are taken off the program. With this supplemental intervention, the Three Bars horses can now perform up to the quality expected of their superior breeding with a simple adaptation that we can control. (Incidentally, this sensitivity has absolutely no relation to color. The worst cases are often bays with no white at all.)
Some horses born with the graying gene, particularly Arabs, seem to be sensitive to copper in the same way that the Three Bars horses are to magnesium. Loss of pigment is the manifestation, and we have had a fair amount of luck controlling, stopping and even reversing the problem. Since copper is so much more toxic than magnesium, I'm somewhat hesitant about using very much of it without constant monitoring through hair analysis.

Some lines of all breeds tend to retain potassium and are chronically bloated, appearing fat, usually with fertility problems. Broodmares with this time bomb are helped by restricting alfalfa (high in potassium and antagonistic to manganese, the fertility mineral). Sometimes manganese supplements are constantly needed to keep the high potassium in check.

Some horses retain phosphorus, which causes arthritis, so high protein grains are definitely not for them. Stallions during heavy breeding may deplete themselves of zinc, making them more prone to various skin problems. Color seems to be a factor in sensitivity here.

There are just no perfect bodies, in any species. We can only breed to get the maximum numbers of good genes and traits while we hope that the bad ones that also pop up are something we can work with, or that we can breed out. We're all still learning. If you have observed any traits that you think are heritable, I would be interested in hearing about them. They may plug into other factors already discovered, like missing pieces to a puzzle, to give us a better view of the genetic time bomb and ways to diffuse it.

We use as much recycled materials for packaging as we can.

From shredded packing material, to reused packing material, to reused/recycled shipping boxes; we are doing our part to eliminate waste and reduce costs.

Through co-operative corporate relationships, these recycled materials come from other companies that receive products primarily for a retail sales floor, and they don't do much outbound shipping. These companies would ordinarily pay to process their packing waste by weight. Instead, we take that cost burden off their hands (and reduce our own costs) by simply reusing these materials.

We are proud to take part in corporate co-operative initiatives that ease the cost of doing business for the whole Vita Royal community.
