Hair Mineral Analysis

 

Hair mineral analysis is a screening test to measure the levels of up to 60 essential minerals and toxic metals.  Various mineral imbalances frequently lead to metabolic dysfunctions before any physical symptoms manifest.

 

Hair accurately reflects a soft tissue in the body and is a storage and eliminative tissue. Unlike urine or blood, hair analysis gives a long term reading. It is not affected by recent meals, activities or emotional states.  Toxic metals don't remain in the blood or urine for long, but often deposit in the hair where levels can be measured over a period of time.

 

Hair analysis helps you understand how well you are assimilating your food, what organs may be stressed, which metals may be at levels of concern as well as which minerals you may be deficient in.

 

Why test for minerals?

 

Today, most diets are devoid of essential minerals.  Deficiencies and imbalances are a cause of many health concerns.

 

Understanding the level of accumulation of toxic metals allows for correction of these imbalances and may help alleviate symptoms and aid in prevention of illness.

 

Some health concerns that may be associated with mineral imbalances or toxic metal excesses:

 

  • Allergies

  • Alzheimer's

  • Anxiety and depression

  • Blood sugar imbalances

  • Digestive disorders

  • Headaches (including migraines)

  • High blood pressure

  • Inability to lose weight

  • Infertility and miscarriage

  • Insomnia

  • Osteoporosis

 

An affordable, non-invasive hair mineral analysis can help establish a nutritional profile.  This information can be used to develop an effective wellness and nutritional balancing regime.
