Hair Mineral Analysis

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 other nutrients, and imbalances are linked to oxidative stress.

Hair Mineral Testing is a tool to assess the mineral levels in the body – both excess and deficiency – as well as heavy metal toxicity.

Today’s North American diet and lifestyle has become deficient of essential minerals (due to processing of foods, poor soil management, low water quality, chronic stress, etc) and our toxic load is higher than ever before.

Hair Mineral Analysis is screening test to measure the levels of up to 60 essential minerals and toxic metals. With correct testing and interpretation, we can create a comprehensive 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 elimination tissue. As hair grows it forms a permanent record of the body’s nutritional deficiencies or excesses. This information, along with dietary and nutritional evaluations, will provide the basis for a protocol to establish and maintain optimal levels of wellness.

Minerals screened include electrolytes – calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium and phosphorus, and trace minerals – copper, manganese, chromium, selenium, iron, molybdenum, lithium, cobalt, and zinc.

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

Some health concerns associated with mineral imbalances or toxic metal excess:

  • headaches and migraines
  • behavioral concerns
  • mood imbalances
  • digestive disorders
  • neurological disorders
  • blood sugar imbalances
  • learning disabilities
  • hair loss
  • premature aging
  • weight management
  • muscle weakness, lethargy
  • bone loss, osteoporosis
  • insomnia
