Nutritional consultant Robin Clifton, has been invited back to New Frontiers Natural Marketplace where she will be performing Hair Analysis for a four-week engagement starting July 5. Hair analysis can help determine if a person’s environment or eating habits are affecting their overall health and wellness. Each appointment is one hour. In just 15 minutes, she will analyze hair samples using non-invasive German technology and provide a 45-minute consultation making recommendations, along with a 37-page personalized wellness nutritional report to take home. 

Clifton is a board-certified Esthetician, Certified Phlebotomist, with a Bachelor of Science degree in Holistic Nutrition.

“Hair is a bio-marker that carries a lot of personal information at a quantum epigenetic level,” said Clifton. “Epigenetic mapping has the potential of releasing you from your genetic limitations. By determining what our bodies require to maintain optimum health we can take a different path, where our genetic inheritance no longer controls us. We become empowered and in control of our own destiny.”

Clifton explained that the Hair Analysis is a 90-day accumulation of information regarding the well-being of your body including the liver.

“I have done more than 1,300 hair scans and without making any medical claims, I began to see a pattern appear that indicates that perhaps people are not paying serious attention to their liver,” said Clifton. “Your liver is constantly getting hit, minute by minute, by toxins, molds, bacteria, viruses, parasites and fungus.These can affect your body’s underlying wellness. We can learn a lot about the condition of our bodies by looking at our hair follicles.

“If you have fatty liver, and most people do, it can cause havoc with the immune system,” Clifton explained. “When the liver isn’t clean it produces ‘dirty blood’ and may cause Type 2 Diabetes, hypertension and cholesterol issues.  The liver is a very important organ. Not only does it clean the blood, but it also stores lipid-soluble vitamins, such as A, D, E, K and B12. The liver controls blood fluidity and regulates the blood-clotting mechanisms. It also converts the products of protein metabolism into urea for excretion by the kidneys, so it is extremely important that you have a clean liver.When the liver is clean it functions optimally, like it was intended, then the good things you do daily will then be processed correctly and the body will balance itself in a natural way.”

Four strands are removed from the base of the neck. The hair samples are digitally processed and sent via a secure Internet connection to a technology center in Hamburg, Germany, where a super-computer maps the epigenetic information. Based on these results, the tested person will receive a report that includes nine wellness categories, covering more than 800 individual influences; a list of food restrictions to leave out of your diet for 90 days; a list of food additives to avoid and common additive information; a 90-day wellness plan, including nutrients, water and lifestyle factors; a list of foods to increase or add to your intake; and self-check sheets to help you keep track of your progress.

The report provides information regarding your adrenals, emotions, sleep, detoxification, fatty metabolism and more. It shows what foods may be causing some sensitivities. The EMF page provides information on any frequencies that may be a problem to the immune system such as; mobile phone, microwave, 5G’s, cell towers, solar and electric batteries. The report also includes personalized information on such subjects as vitamins and minerals, fatty acids, amino acids, anti-oxidants, environmental challenges such as chemicals and hydrocarbons, radiation and toxic metals. The Resistance Indicators page provides information on bacteria, fungus, molds/spores, parasites, viruses and post virus that are in your body. 

“We don’t do medical. I can’t tell you what virus you have. We work with the epigenetic signals that include the experiences of our ancestors, our current diets and lifestyles, as well as our thoughts and beliefs. Beliefs and thoughts have a direct effect in our emotions and over-all wellbeing. By understanding some of the epigenomic influences, we can change diets and lifestyle to optimize gene expression and its impact on our daily performance. I then canrecommend supplements and food, which are corrective to the outcome of the test,” said Clifton. “The test is a great way to show your overall health and determine if your body is nutritionally balanced.
