The Hair Mineral Analysis Test is a reliable way to look at levels of minerals and heavy metals in the body.

Knowing what your mineral balance is (are you short on some minerals or have excess, or even heavy metals such as lead, cadmium, aluminium, mercury etc), can guide the Practitioner to help with multiple health issues, from Chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia, arthritis, fatigue, allergy, adrenal fatigue, poor digestion and right through to Pre Conception care concerns or just to keep healthy.

Our hair is a repository of minerals, elements and heavy metals and offers a stable picture, of your mineral balance.  (Forensic scientists have used hair analysis, along with other tissue testing, on the remains of long ago ancestors to learn more about their diet, environment and health).

Blood and other body fluids give a transitory view of the minerals in your body (as minerals are in constant use and movement).  Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis testing bridges the gap to help understand what is stored in the body and what is currently in the blood.

Minerals play an important role in our health, and their concentration and balance in ratio with each other impact our overall wellbeing. It is interesting to see how each person has their individual pictures patterns and storage issues, excesses or deficiency’s.  This becomes even more important for women who are wanting to conceive.  For instance, if a potential mother has high levels of mercury or lead in her system before or when she conceives, then having a baby is a good way of reducing the load (for the mother) but then of her passing the toxins through to the baby.

How to do the test:

A small tspn of your hair from the back of your head (scalp to 2cms in length- you will be given specific directions on which section of hair to cut), is enough to look at the minerals and heavy metals your body is storing or losing.  This simple easy test can be performed at home and sent away with results returned in 3 weeks.

Many health conditions can be aggravated by mineral imbalances and toxic metal excesses, including fatigue, arthritic conditions (especially children’s arthritis), hormonal imbalance, infertility in men and women, cancers, glandular fever, heart diseases and blood pressure issues, thyroid conditions, high cholesterol, migraines, learning difficulties and hyperactivity in children and autoimmune conditions to name a few.

This is a great test to help support and guide you towards optimal health.
