Analysis based on Counting Rules
More Analysis of my Hair Elements Test Results
Based on the Counting Rules (developed by Andy Cutler)
I wrote my test results on a table format for easier analysis using the Counting Rules.

• Test from DDi
• Test medium: HAIR
The following Essential and other elements are above 50%
Since the number of items above 50% is less than 5 , it indicates I have a high probability of abnormal mineral transport and it indicates a high probability of mercury poisoning
STEP 2 –
The following Essential elements are very low (RED ZONE)
Since the number of items that have very low levels is 4 (or more) it indicates a high probability of abnormal mineral transport and it indicates a high probability of mercury poisoning
These are the elements that are entirely in the middle section (white or green on both sides
These are the elements that are entirely on the white section only
Additional patterns which are characteristic of mercury toxicity
There are some characteristic non-statistical findings, too, in mercury toxic people. These are probably caused by other heavy metals in addition to mercury, but are NOT caused by COPPER toxicity. People who are copper toxic, with nothing else going on, have very normal looking hair analyses except for very elevated copper. Their minerals are not “skewed”.
Not everyone who is mercury toxic has these patterns, but they are reasonably common:
• calcium that is vastly elevated. Usually the lithium is very low, too.
• a really characteristic pattern of very high calcium and magnesium, along with very low sodium and potassium. This isn’t present in that many cases but is common enough to mention since, when present, it suggests mercury poisoning, or something else interfering with adrenal function.
• an “all low” pattern is quite common for mercury toxic people even though many have more than 5 elements above the midline. This has a more than 1 in 44 chance of being random, but is not what you expect to see.
The most important finding is the one that the counting rules “count”: mercury toxic people generally have their essential elements much more scattered than well people, with lots of highs and lows. “Normal” people do NOT have this pattern. If you look at the hair analyses of some “normal” people it becomes quite obvious.
I can see my calcium levels is highly elevated, and lithium is low. At this point am not sure if I have normal or abnormal mineral transport (although the results show that the criteria in steps 1 & 2 are met).
When mineral transport is abnormal: OTHER TOXIC METALS
(TEXT TO BE ADDED HERE. This section is not complete.)
When mineral transport is normal: OTHER TOXIC METALS
The counting rules look for abnormal mineral transport. A person who has NORMAL mineral transport has the ability to move use and process BOTH TOXIC AND ESSENTIAL ELEMENTS. The readings on a hair test for other toxic metals (other than mercury) should be an accurate indicator of any toxicity (or the lack of toxicity). For example, if a person has normal mineral transport, but high copper and high arsenic, then the readings for copper and arsenic would be accurate, and you would want to consider how to lower the copper and arsenic.
If I have normal mineral transport, but high Aluminum, arsenic and antimony, then readings for Aluminum, arsenic and antimony would be accurate, so all i have to do is lower (chelate) aluminium, arsenic and antimony. Should I stop chelating mercury then and focus on chelating aluminum, arsenic and antimony?
