Hair Mineral Analysis is a screening test to measure the levels of up to 60 essential minerals and toxic metals. With correct testing and interpretation, one can construct a complete metabolic profile of the human body.

Hair is an excellent biopsy material. It is easy to sample, easily preserved and transported, represents a soft tissue of the body and is a storage and eliminative tissue. As hair grows it forms a permanent record of the body's nutritional deficiencies or excesses.

Minerals screened include calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium, phosphorus, copper, zinc manganese, selenium, iron, and cobalt.

Elevated readings can have different meanings depending upon:

  1. Present symptoms

  2. The elevated mineral in question

  3. Whether a specific treatment, regimen or diet is being followed

  4. Relationships to other elemental reading


Toxic metal screening includes lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic, nickel, and aluminum.

A very high reading may represent a toxic amount of the mineral in the hair, and in the body tissues in general. In the case of a toxic metal, any deposition or accumulation in the hair indicates some degree of toxicity.

High levels of toxic metals inhibit the body's ability to process and assimilate specific nutritional elements that are essential to good health and have a proven link to many types of diseases.

This information, along with dietary and nutritional evaluations, will provide the data needed for a nutritional balancing program to establish and maintain optimal levels of wellness. By correcting tissue mineral levels and ratios with proper diet, supplementary nutrients and lifestyle modifications, many physical and behavioral health conditions can be prevented or reversed.

Facts About Your Health

Minerals in the body are involved in almost all enzyme reactions, metabolic activity and detoxification cycles. They are vital for the effective absorption and proper function of nutrients and vitamins.

Our bodies cannot utilize vitamins and other nutrients without a correct balance of minerals, even in trace amounts. Proper mineral balance is essential to avoid chronic fatigue, weight gain/loss, headaches, depression and osteoporosis.

Mineral imbalances are also linked to oxidative stress that can lead to some cancers.

Today's North American diet has become devoid of adequate quantities of essential minerals. When mineral deficiencies occur, toxic metals often replace these vital minerals in the body. Because of today's highly industrialized society, we are exposed to toxic metals every day.

The presence of toxic metals in the body has been implicated in the onset of chronic ailments such as Alzheimer's disease, ADD/ADHD, diabetes, autism and Parkinson's disease as well as infertility and miscarriage. The addition of essential minerals can expel toxic metals.

Various mineral imbalances, as revealed by hair analysis, frequently lead to metabolic dysfunctions before any physical symptoms manifest.

An affordable, non-invasive Hair Mineral Analysis can help establish a nutritional profile to be used by you and your health practitioner to guide in the development of an effective wellness and nutritional balancing regimen.
