Hair Analysis and Tissue Mineral Analysis
Find out why Trace mineral analysis is a test to measure the mineral content of your hair. The mineral content of hair reflects the mineral content of your body tissue. If there is a mineral deficiency or excess, it will usually indicate a deficiency or excess within the body or bio-unavailability.
For instance if your hair reveals elevated calcium levels 2-3 times normal, then the calcium within your body may also be elevated. If this is the case, there may be a tendency towards arteriosclerosis (hardening of arteries due to calcium plaques).
Various mineral imbalances that are revealed by hair analysis often lead to metabolic dysfunction before any symptoms even manifest. Why Mineral Testing? Mineral are essential to almost all enzymatic reactions within the body. Without enzyme activity, life ceases to exist. Causes of mineral imbalances include: improper diet, stress, accumulation of toxic materials, medication…etc
Some of the many conditions that result in or may be aggravated by a mineral imbalance include:
Depression-Hypoglycemia-Hyperactivity-Headaches-Hair Loss-Digestive Disturbances-Diabetes-Emotional Problems-Thyroid Disturbances-Weight Gain….and more
Hair analysis can be an invaluable tool for screening deficiencies which will help determine appropriate supplements or make necessary dietary and lifestyle changes.
Pricing: Lab test plus complete interpretation: This includes the entire mineral assay test, plus an interpretative work-up that lists trends, provides a detailed explanation of results, along with vitamin and mineral supplement recommendations and compares significant mineral ratios. $150.00
Add the personal diet plan: This is derived from the information provided by the mineral assay and is based on the patient’s mineral levels, mineral ratios, “oxidation” type and probable “allergic” responses. This will include foods that should be avoided and included in your diet. $50.00Best wishes,
