Dr Eck
      Dr. Paul C. Eck established Analytical Research Labs in 1974 after
         devoting most of his adult life to evaluating major research studies
         in biochemistry, physiology, pathology, nutrition and psychology.

        To correctly interpret a hair tissue mineral analysis, Dr. Eck
         combined a number of biological, physiological and biochemical
      concepts including the stages of stress discovered by Dr. Hans Selye, sympathetic
     and parasympathetic balancing as taught by Dr. Melvin Page, oxidation types as
     taught by Dr. George Watson and mineral balancing as taught by Dr. William Albrecht
     and others.

No other laboratory uses all these concepts to help understand the significance of tissue mineral levels, ratios and metabolic patterns. Dr. Eck pioneered many innovations in the study of trace mineral deficiencies and excesses and their relationship to various metabolic dysfunctions associated with disease. Dr. Eck was regarded as an authority on the science of balancing body chemistry through hair tissue mineral analysis.

     Under Dr. Eck's direction:

— ARL was the first laboratory to integrate the factors of stress, oxidation types,  
    mineral relationships, homeostatic states and natural healing principles into the
    science of hair tissue mineral analysis interpretation.

— ARL was the first hair tissue mineral analysis laboratory to recognize the importance  
   of hair mineral ratios. As a result, their interpretations focus on mineral relationships 
   and their effects on health.
— ARL was the first laboratory to determine oxidation rates using hair tissue mineral analysis.
— ARL was the first laboratory to identify and correlate more than 30 metabolic trends 
    for illnesses using hair tissue mineral analysis.

— ARL was the first laboratory to produce interpretations that measure mineral levels
   and ratios against an ideal standard of health rather than an average range used by
   other laboratories within the field of hair tissue mineral analysis.
