Analytical Research Laboratories
Dr. Paul C. Eck established ARL 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 tissue mineral analysis, Dr. Eck combined a number of modern 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.
