From Dr. Rick:
It has long been known that prolonged and intense stress eventually lead to the onset of disease and other health problems. This is most likely due to inflammation that occurs with prolonged stress. Being able to assess a person’s stress condition can be especially helpful in detecting this health factor if it can lead to a reduction in stress and inflammation. There are two ways to assess stress and inflammation that reflect an increased risk of disease.
A hair tissue mineral analysis (HTMA) reflects a person’s stress status by the general mineral pattern that it shows, especially the relationship between sodium (Na) and potassium (K). The more the sodium level exceeds the potassium level as shown in a high ratio of sodium/potassium (Na/K), the more intense is the stress reaction that the person is experiencing. A high Na/K stress ration in a HTMA also reflects an inflammation condition. However, such a high Na/K ratio reflecting an inflammation condition is a general factor. The high Na/K stress/inflammation ratio does not localize where in a person’s body the inflammation is located.
The localization of where inflammation is in the person’s body can be assessed by doing a thermogram. The thermogram results in a picture of different body temperatures in different parts of the body. Warmer temperatures of inflammation are reflected in red in contrast to less inflamed cooler temperatures. Thus, the color contrast in a thermogram localizes areas of the body where inflammation is most intense.
Thus, the combination of a HTMA with a thermogram provides a comprehensive picture of risk for disease and health problems. The magnitude of the Na/K stress ratio in a HTMA reflects the presence of a serious stress condition associated with inflammation. A thermogram localizes the areas of inflammation in the body. Using the HTMA mineral pattern as a guide, anti-stress vitamins and minerals can be given to the person to reduce a high Na/K stress ratio. This will reduce a person’s stress condition and tendency to develop inflammation.
Retests of the HTMA and thermogram allow us to monitor the effectiveness of a supplement program designed to reduce the intensity of stress and inflammation.

Complex Health Issues:
In regard to your excellent coverage of the mass protest against mandating the covid “vaccine” as a condition of continued employment at VVMC, there are complex health issues involved. That was already evident to me last year when my op ed article was published by Dan Engler in the Verde Independent. We knew back then that a "vaccine” was already in the works since it was being developed at "warp speed." But, most of us didn't know much about this new experimental "vaccine" other than the fact that it was going to be really a genetic medical treatment with mRNA components. We have since learned that it would also have large numbers of spike proteins that trigger inflammation that is damaging to people’s health. Why mandate a shot that triggers inflammation such as myocarditis?
During the past year, we also have been able to access articles and videos by MDs and researchers who have raised serious questions about the safety and effectiveness of these covid shots.
As I reflect back on what we have been subjected to by the mass media and public “health” spokespersons during the past 20 months around covid 19, it seems very clear that the real agenda was to sell billions of dollars worth of covid shots that are highly experimental. Censorship has dominated the covid narrative that has pushed for mass “vaccinations” regardless of the health of individuals or whether a person has had a covid infection and has natural immunity.
What is urgently needed to properly deal with this complex health situation is an open debate among MDs, nurses, psychologists, researchers, lawyers, and journalists to address the scientific and clinical data with complete transparency. This is long overdue.
