Seminar CD's

#1) Part One - Hair Analysis and the New Nutrition
Presented By Dr. Paul C. Eck and Dr. Lawrence Wilson

There is no doubt that nutrition and its relationship to the maintenance of health is getting more attention than ever before in history. Facts and figures contained within Dr. Eck's research provide the answers to the major questions asked by doctors and patients alike and his methods and techniques have revolutionized the use of vitamin and mineral supplementation for correcting metabolic disturbances. His studies have revealed how the utilization of Hair Analysis can determine oxidation types through trace mineral patterns and how, based upon these patterns, physiological and even emotional imbalances can be corrected with proper diet and nutritional supplementation. These cassette tapes were produced from the first of a two-part seminar series which was presented in March 1985.
