It represents an indirect functional exam about the physiological effect, deficiency of minerals in the organism. Even it reveals eventual toxic minerals.

Daphne lab mineral analysis supplies an energetic functional reading of the minerals’s deposit in cells. This screening test, doesn’t give a diagnosis of a disease or a pathologic condition, but it makes a main role in the prevention and in the early diagnosis of psycho-physic disturbances.


STRESS STAGE: It gives added information on the chemistry of the organism, the way to understand the physiological and psychological variations to which the body is subject during the reaction and the adaptation to stress. The organism reacts to the stress with a syndrome od adaptation that consist in three stages:
FIRST STAGE (ALLARM REACTION): the body reacts to an acute stress releasing some adrenal-marrow hormones that mobilize the energy of the organism to face the tension. This reaction is showed under form of inflammation process (high ratio Na/K).
SECOND STAGE (THE RESISTANCE): If the stress persists there will be an involvement of the adrenal cortical having an anti- inflammatory activity. This is revealed by a rapport Na/K to normal values. If the stress extends the organism will weak itself and Na and K will have low levels.
THIRD STAGE (THE DEPLETION): All the energetic reserves of the organism will deplete to content the stress and so we will have a fall of the Na levels respect to those one of the K with an inversion of the ratio < 2,5. So it will be established the chronic fatigue. The physiological, psychological and nutritional stress impoverishes the mineral and vitamins tissues. The more minerals lost are: magnesium, calcium, copper and zinc.

GLANDULAR ACTIVITIES: evaluation of the activity of the main glands the regular the energy: the Thyroid and Adrenals trough the ratios between some tissue mineral. Several mineral are attached to the thyroid activity:
CALCIUM: one of the function of the thyroid is that one of lowering calcium in the organism. In general, a high level of calcium, indicates slow activity of thyroid. While a low level of calcium indicate an excessive activity of thyroid.
POTASSIUM: it sensitize the tissues to the thyroxine. A low value of potassium indicate a reduced effect of the thyroid, a high value indicates an excessive activity of the thyroid.
RATIO SODIUM/POTASSIUM: It represents the best index of thyroid activity. The excellent ratio is 4:1. If the ratio is high the cellular activity of the thyroid is slow, while a lower ratio indicates excessive activity of thyroid activity to cellular level. If this ratio is > di 4,2 it will have a prevalence of the Ca that it will smite on the thyroid reducing the functionality.
If the ratio is <4.2 we will have a prevalence of K that will affect the thyroid accelerating the mineralogram functionality also it allows us a functional evaluation of cellular adrenal functionality.
SODIUM AND ALDOSTERONE: aldosterone causes sodium retention. A high sodium level indicates an increased activity of the aldosterone.
POTASSIUM AND GLUCOCORTICOIDS: potassium levels give an indication of cortisol, corticosterone and cortisone. A potassium level of 1 or 2 mg% indicates a very scares activity of cortisol (ideal level 10 mg%), which often causes fatigue, hypoglycemia, allergies and discomfort.
REPORT SODIUM / MAGNESIUM: the optimal ratio Na / Magnesium is 4,17: 1. A high ratio> of 4,17: 1 indicates an adrenal hyperactivity. The symptoms are: irritability, gastric acidity, hypertension ……
If this ratio is <4 there will be a decreased function of the adrenal cortex whose symptoms are: fatigue, hypotension, hypoglycemia. When too much is lost in the urine Na they have edema, swelling of lymph.
RATIO Na / K: if this ratio is low <2,5: 1 indicates excessive secretion of cortisol than aldosterone. If this ratio is <1,5: 1 is index of adrenal imbalance.


<1: 1 extremely low ratio: stress of chronic kind between 1: 1 and 2: 1 fatigue, ulcers, immune system’s dysfunction, digestive difficulties, stress of the kidneys and liver. Between 2: 1 and 2,5: 1 ratio slightly lower tendency to weak adrenal between 2,5: 1 and 4: 1 optimum ratio between 4: 1 and 8: 1 slightly higher tendency to inflammation indicates acute stress> 8: 1 ratio high stress of acute.

The balance of the minerals is one of the most important things for the determination of the good state of health. It is calculated the ratio of minerals and the possible causes of the disease for a resolution of the endocrine, metabolic and mental function.

HEAVY METALS: To discover the intoxication of heavy metals. The toxic metals do not perform a necessary function in the body, they can act as ” substitute minerals “, when there is a deficiency of a mineral ” favorite mineral “. For example, if there is a deficiency of zinc, it can be replaced by cadmium in some chemical reactions.

ALUMINIUM: its excess can inhibit the formation of alpha-ketoglutarate causing an excess of ammonia in the tissues. The excess of aluminum gives rise to symptoms such as pre-senile dementia and Alzheimer’s desease; the level of aluminum is high in adults and children who have low levels of zinc showing crowds of learning and behavior such as ADD, ADHD and autism. Possible sources of aluminum are drugs, pans, baking powder, drinking water. Early symptoms of intoxication by aluminum can be fatigue, headaches.

ANTIMONY: the usual sources of this element are smoking and food, other sources of contamination are the textile industries. Early symptoms include fatigue, headaches, nausea myopathies, lumbago and metallic taste in the mouth.

ARSENIC: inorganic arsenic is absorbed from the air, from foods, from shampoos, the soap, it accumulates in the bones, thyroid, skin. It can cause discomfort, diarrhea, vomiting, dermatitis and skin cancer. The long-term exposure results in negative effects on the PNS and the hematopoietic system

LEAD: Exposure sources are represented by paints, welds, drinking water, fertilizers, enamel, ceramics. The symptoms are associated with headaches, weight loss, fatigue and anemia. Pb has neurotoxic and nephrotoxic well as interfere with the synthesis of heme. It can also have negative effects on memory, cognitive function, and metabolism of vitamin D.

SILVER: The silver salts are very toxic, the contaminations sources are fish and seafood, the photographic processes, the manufacturing of jewelry.

SELENIUM: it is potentially toxic even at doses little higher than required. The chronic poisoning attorney skin disorders, respiratory and visual, while an acute intoxication causes diarrhea, abdominal pains and fever. Selenium acts as a protective factor in the damage of free radicals.

BERYLLIUM: is absorbed by the skin, and lungs. Possible sources are many high technology components: electronics, metal alloys, lamps.
In excess can cause immune disorders with hypersensitivity reactions.

TIN: it causes injury to the CNS, the major source are canned foods.

THALLIUM: it is accumulated in all body tissues. The mineralogram reflects the chronic accumulation, its excess causes sleep disorders, heart problems, visual and skin, liver and kidney dysfunctions. The most common sources of thallium are food, tobacco, polluted water and some fertilizers. The potassium and selenium counteract the build-up of thallium and its toxic effect.

URANIUM: it is fairly widespread in the ground. It is primarily used especially as nuclear fuel, but it can be present in the ceramic, in the objects of colored glasses. Uranium is bound to proteins and can replace calcium in the bones.

CADMIO: It causes many diseases including some also death as heart attacks, cancer and diabetes. Cadmium replaces zinc in many enzymes metal complexes, the symptoms caused by the toxicity of cadmium can be traced to a zinc deficiency induced by cadmium. Sources of intoxication are espresso, dental amalgams, contaminated water, paints and exhaust gas.
Associated symptoms are diabetes, infertility, headaches, inflammation.

MERCURY: it destroys the microtubules of the nerves that prevents nutrients from reaching the cell and the expulsion of poisons.


Mercury affects the following tissues:
• Nervous System (brain, bone marrow, autonomic nerves)
• Kidneys, adrenal glands, liver, bowel wall
• Connective Tissue
• Erythrocytes


• Neurological disorders (depression, anxiety, migraine, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease)
• Diseases organs
• Autoimmune diseases (lupus, scleroderma, arthritis)

• Chronic joint problems
• Muscle pains, tremor
• Insomnia, slight agitation
• Intestinal disorders
• Psychological changes (aggression, excessive shyness)
• In children: learning process limited, stuttering, hearing disorders, autism.
• Inflammation of the gums

The toxic potential of the elements is also dependent from the simultaneous presence of other toxic elements. The accumulation of one or more toxic elements can have harmful synergistic effects. The toxicity index is estimated on an average calculated on the values of relative toxicity.

OXIDATIVE TYPE: fast or slow oxidation are important to set an appropriate nutritional program. The oxidation rate indicates the speed at which the body burns the food, it is similar to the metabolic rate.

OXIDATION SLOW: it identifies that it burns or oxidizes the food too slowly with the result of having a very low power level.
OXIDATION FAST: it indicates that the individual burns or it oxidizes the food in too fast way this involves a very high level of energy and its dissipation in very fast. SUBJECT WITH FAST METABOLISM. In general, it is a condition where the relationship of the adrenal glands that reveal the thyroid hyperactivity. The slow oxidation is instead a condition where the relationship of the adrenal and thyroid reveal hypo-activity.
OXIDATION MIXED: If the activity of a gland is slow and the other fast indicates instability or one transition that will result in fast or slow oxidation.
The OPTIMUM of oxidation is the situation in which all the levels of the minerals are balanced.

PREPARING TO DISEASES: They are the most important aspects of the test, as the mineral analysis allows us to identify certain diseases before symptoms arise.

EMOTIONAL TREND: The trend towards psychological conditions such as depression, anxiety, mood swings. The test allows us to observe the intimate relations between mineral levels and personality. Symptoms can range from irritability, chronic fatigue, from hypo-reactivity to hyperactivity: this depends on the type of mineral excess or deficiency.

ENERGY PROFILE: Establishment of cellular energy levels. The diseases occur when the body is no more able to regenerate and to defend himself, because of a low level of energy. Energy is the common denominator of health. In fact, a factor to be emphasized in all types of pathology, is fatigue. The fundamental purpose of life is the production of energy, a vital function that allows to all other functions operate in a synergistic manner.

Mineralogram allows us to assess:
• The oxidation rates
• The mineral levels relative to the energy path

OXIDATIVE RATE AND ENERGY EFFICIENCY It indicates the energy efficiency index, and is determined by the Na / Magnesium ratio (adrenal) and Ca/ K ratio (thyroid). If the oxidation rate increases rapidly, there will be a decrease of the energy efficiency. The subject may seem full of energy but at the moment in which such efficiency disappears, the person will draw its energy from the nerves. This aspect is evident especially in hyperactive children and adults very active.

It begins with ingestion and chewing of food, followed by digestion, the absorption and transport to the cells and the absorption of nutrients. Glucose, amino acids and fatty acids enter in the glycolytic cycle and in the cycle of citric acid. Minerals are involved in almost all stages of this process. Nutritional deficiencies or toxic damage one or more stages of the energy path. DIET PROGRAMS The way we eat has major impacts on our energy, our mood, our health. WE DON’T UNDERESTIMATE IT!!!

DIET ANTI FREE RADICALS (MINERAL DEFICIENCY IN: Copper, Manganese, Selenium, Zinc), when these minerals are lacking it is likely that the organism is unable to perform the type of anti-oxidative reactions, i.e. those that protect from the effects of free radicals. The excessive presence of free radicals in the organism facilitates the onset of chronic degenerative diseases. Antioxidants factors are natural substances found in food. Copper, manganese, selenium and zinc are the basis for important biological reactions which neutralize the accumulation of free radicals. If these minerals are scarce in the organism, it will be appropriate to integrate them with dietary adjustments. More protein rich in omega 3/6, such as fish and legumes. Fiber, minerals and vitamins: cereals, vegetables and fruit. Less animal protein rich in saturated fat and cholesterol (meat, sausages, cheese). Sugars to rapid assimilation (sugar, sweets in general). Foods rich in fatty acids “trans” or hydrogenated (snacks, cookies, crackers, chips). Salt’s excess and salty foods. The antioxidant diet has the aim to modulate the immune system by providing to body bricks for a perfect wellness.

According with, and with the help of the Thema 400 you will have to eliminate all foods with a glycemic index near 95, eliminate all foods marked by the asterisk (*) and prefer those designated by the ash mark (#). To eat lots of vegetables, take just wake up a purifying herbal tea type or mauve ortosiphon.

Reports Zn, Cu and iron
If the Zn / Cu = 8 it means that there is a good emotional balance.
If the Zn / Cu> 8, there will be a prevalence of Zn, causing an emotional imbalance, often Zn also prevails because the bioavailability of Cu in the organism is insufficient administer is in the form of oligos element together with a boquet of Bach flowers acts to control muscle stiffness and emotional.
If the Zn / Cu <8 indicates an excess of Cu would lead to depression, anxiety and panic attacks. The optimal ratio between the Cu and Fe is 0.8 is a good index of the immune system.
If the Zn / Cu >0,8 there is a prevalence of iron predisposed to an anemia cupropenica, with possible predispositions to bacterial infections that will need to check with Thema 04.
If the Fe / Cu <0,8 prevalence of Cu which indicates a weakening of the immune system.
