Dr. Paul C. Eck

Clinician and Researcher
  • Title :
    Founder of Analytical Research Laboratories and Endomet Laboratories


Dr. Paul C. Eck (1925-1996)  was a brilliant clinician, physician and biochemist and spent most of his adult life 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. These concepts include 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.

In 1974, Dr. Paul Eck established Analytical Research Laboratories (ARL) for hair tissue mineral analysis. In 1975, he founded Endomet Laboratories which offers nutritional products for mineral balancing.

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 unique science of balancing body chemistry through hair tissue mineral analysis. Learn more.

“Every mineral has an effect on every other mineral.  It is scientifically impossible to change the level of even one mineral, without simultaneously affecting the levels of ALL other minerals”

“Minerals are the principal energy-producing components of the human body. It is the relationships between the minerals in your tissues that help determine your physical and emotional destiny. Through an understanding and control of these basic laws of human energy, you can vastly increase the intensity and quality of your life.”

“When you have energy, you don’t have to learn the “techniques” of human relations. You don’t need books or seminars on how to assert yourself. And you don’t need to be taught how to be loving to your mate. All of these things come naturally, and spontaneously, to people with energy.”
