What is Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis?

Hair mineral testing measures the mineral content of hair. Testing is done by a licensed, clinical laboratory using sophisticated equipment and methods.  Hair mineral levels reflect the mineral content of body tissues and can indicate excesses or deficiencies in a person's body.  Minerals are the 'spark plugs' of life.  They are involved in almost all enzyme activity in the body.  Without enzyme activity, life ceases to exist.

  Hair testing also reveals inbalances and toxicities and can play a key role in both the correction of body chemistry and prevention of physical disorders.  It is very beneficial for children as early detection of any deficiencies, inbalances, or toxicities can be corrected before disease sets in.  Toxic metal poisoning is a serious threat to our health.

  A hair tissue mineral analysis is more stable and reliable than a blood test.  Blood test are subject to variations on a daily and sometimes hourly basis.  Also, the body tends to maintain blood mineral levels near normal at the expense of the tissues.  Hair is stable and provides an average reading of the past two to three months.  When you receive the results of your hair testing, you are better equipped to design an accurate nutritional program specific to your needs.  Minerals need to be kept in balance.  Proper nutrients can improve health, however, the wrong nutrients can worsen health.
