These are four fairly common patterns seen on hair mineral analyses when the hair is not washed at the laboratory.  They can be confusing for practitioners and clients.

Normally, the first two macrominerals on the chart – calcium and magnesium – are BOTH either lower than their ideal levels, or higher than their ideal levels.  The second two macrominerals – sodium and potassium – are also BOTH either higher than their ideal values or lower than their ideal values.  These situations give us our basic oxidation types, and the patterns called four highs and four lows.

However, in the case of wrong two highs, the situation is a bit mixed up.  This article discusses these situations and what they seem to indicate.

 

DEFINITIONS OF WRONG TWO HIGHS PATTERNS

 

Wrong two highs exists when any of the following are present:

 

1. High calcium and sodium, with low magnesium and potassium.  This means calcium greater than 40 mg%, magnesium less than 6 mg%, sodium greater than 25%, and potassium less than 10 mg%.  This looks like a saw tooth pattern, mixed oxidation and often a double high ratio pattern.

 

2. High calcium and potassium, with low magnesium and sodium. This means calcium greater than 40 mg%, magnesium less than 6 mg%, sodium less than 25%, and potassium greater than 10 mg%. This looks like a bowl pattern with fast, slow or mixed oxidation.

 

3. Low calcium and sodium, with high magnesium and potassium. This means calcium less than 40 mg%, magnesium greater than 6 mg%, sodium less than 25%, and potassium greater than 10 mg%.  This looks like a saw tooth pattern, mixed oxidation and, at times, a double low ratio pattern.

 

4. Low calcium and potassium, with high magnesium and sodium. This means calcium less than 40 mg%, magnesium greater than 6 mg%, sodium greater than 25%, and potassium less than 10 mg%.  This looks like a hill pattern, with fast, slow or mixed oxidation.

 

MORE DETAIL ABOUT WRONG TWO HIGHS PATTERNS

 

1. High calcium and sodium, with low magnesium and potassium.  This looks like a saw tooth pattern.  It is always a mixed oxidation pattern, and often a double high ratio pattern.  It can be a fast mixed or a slow mixed oxidation pattern.

 

2. High calcium and potassium, with low magnesium and sodium.  This looks like a bowl pattern with fast, slow or mixed oxidation.

 

3. Low calcium and sodium, with high magnesium and potassium.  This looks like a saw tooth pattern, always mixed oxidation and, at times, a double low ratio pattern.  The oxidation rate can be fast mixed or slow mixed.

 

4. Low calcium and potassium, with high magnesium and sodium.  This looks like a hill pattern, with fast, slow or mixed oxidation.

 

THE MEANING OF WRONG TWO HIGHS PATTERNS

 

Most often, wrong two highs should be viewed exactly like a three highs/four highs pattern.  In other words, all four of these patterns seem to be variants or indicate slow oxidation with a secondary alarm reaction.

A possible exception is pattern # 3 above.  This may be more like a burned out fast oxidizer pattern, or fast oxidation with a low sodium/potassium ratio.

We are researching whether a wrong two highs pattern may also indicate some degree of mix-up or mental confusion within a person.

 

RESOLVING WRONG TWO HIGHS PATTERNS

 

Usually, all of the wrong two highs patterns resolve quickly on a properly designed development program.  This would indicate that they indicate a type of mixed up metabolic situation that is quite temporary when the proper nutritional and lifestyle program is applied to them.

In this regard, they are like other mixed oxidation patterns that usually resolve quickly, as well, on a nutritional balancing program.
