Hair analysis testing for minerals

Minerals are essential for growth, healing, vitality and wellbeing. They provide structural support for bones and teeth, and they maintain the body's pH and water balance, nerve activity, muscle contractions, energy production and enzyme reactions. They are the basic ‘spark plugs' of life. 

Ideally, we should get all the minerals we need from a balanced diet. Unfortunately today this is rarely possible. Modern farming techniques, fertilisers and depleted soils reduce the mineral content of foods. Environmental pollutants, chemical food additives and stressful lifestyles also have a detrimental effect on our nutritional status.

Many health conditions are aggravated by mineral imbalances and toxic metal excesses, including cardiovascular disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, migraines, learning difficulties and hyperactivity in children, to name just a few. 

Consequently, we need to test and monitor our nutritional status more than ever and the HTMA method of testing hair is very effective. 

Quality controlled

Although these hair tissue mineral analysis are not completed in-house, we arrange for your hair sample to be sent to our pathology laboratory which has rigorous quality control systems.
