This is one of the most useful and non-invasive diagnostic tools for diagnosing mineral imbalances.
Your hair, along with other tissues in the body provide a storage area for toxic minerals stored in the body.
Whilst blood testing may indicate what heavy metals are being excreted from the body, a hair tissue mineral analysis will give a better indication of what minerals are actually being stored in the body.
The hair concentrates toxic metals at levels up to 10 times greater than those in the blood.
Excess heavy metals in the body have been linked to various conditions including depression, learning difficulties, mood disorders, hormonal imbalances and digestive disorders.
It will provide effective information on levels and deficiencies of 38 different minerals and heavy metals.
It provides a good record of the previous 3-6 months exposure to toxic metals and will detect other mineral abnormalities including copper, zinc, iron, calcium and potassium.
A personalised patient and doctor interpretive test report is provided which assesses your current mineral status, highlights areas of concern and recommends dietary changes and supplementation for improved health and wellbeing.
