Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis
What is Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis?
A Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA) is used to evaluate toxic metal accumulation and to check essential nutrient balances.
It’s a safe, non-invasive test that measures the mineral composition of your hair tissue. Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis provides clinical data of over 35 nutrients and toxic minerals and over 26 mineral ratios, that provides information to help us keep your body in balance.
What is the advantage of using Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis?
Minerals are essential for your health. Although you absorb minerals from your diet, mineral levels in foods are reduced by:
- Modern farming methods
- Depleted soils
As a result, it’s important to test and monitor your nutritional status because when your mineral levels are not in balance other nutrients are affected.
The results are based on scientific data and you’ll receive a full report, along with advice and recommendations to achieve better health.
The health information that you’ll receive from a Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis gives an alternative insight when compared to other tests like blood tests or urine tests.
