    I can find many articles on how to raise magnesium and calcium. But when you have very low potassium (from hair mineral analysis) how do you increase it? It is my big problem. I am diabetic type 1 and have really bad insulin resistance. I am pretty sure that it is from low potassium since my issues all happened when my potassium dropped drastically. What I don't understand is Ray Peat seems to put lots of emphasis on calcium. But calcium lowers potassium. That's what I don't get. Vitamin D too. How do you raise potassium? Also I don't feel like retinol is really helping that much. And eating large amounts of potassium doesn't seem to do much for me. Are there any explanations how to get more potassium to the cells?

    Better to get some sunlight every day which will let the body regulate vitamin D how its supposed to.

    i have heard many times that hair mineral analysis can't be trusted. you need blood analysis

    It is the other way around. Blood tests are unreliable. Blood is a very narrow field and your kidneys work very hard to keep it clean and alkaline. Electrolytes, sodium, potassium, calcium magnesium are always within range, normal on a blood test. until someone is dying or diabetes finally shows ups. On a hair test, the RATIOS between these electrolytes = your whole CELLULAR Metabolism. It is 100% accurate as I have over 450+ hair tests and my clients come with challenging backgrounds/symptoms with diagnoses in cancer, lupus, osteoporosis, depression & more. Osteoporosis will show up on a hair test 3 - 6 years before it is diagnosed with a fractured rib and bone density scans. Unfortunately, many people do not know how to read a hair test and many patients or clients do not want to learn about BIOCHEMISTRY. Crazy sexy science, a hair test saved my life when I was physically dying & to this day it shows my most accurate thyroid status and calcium metabolisms as well as PROTEIN Digestion. Cool Huh :)

    Yes, would like to do a proper thread & give some background form where I am coming from with my suggestions. I know how to reply not sure how to do a proper new thread so more people can have access to it as I want to address many members particularly those that are still having issues with the Peat principles.

    Hair mineral analysis is only 15% of what I do for the last 7 years. I use it for testing because people spend a fortune on blood tests, stool tests, genetic tests and are still Clueless. My business is Results/outcome-based and I have been doing this for over 15 years as a clinical kinesiologist, nutritionist and Addictions specialist. I know how to work with root causes and how to work with people with multiple symptoms.
