Hair Mineral Testing is a laboratory hair strand test which measures the mineral content of your hair and heavy metal toxicity. The test results reflect how much of these elements are in your tissues and provide a vivid picture of our internal environment. With this information, a world of metabolic events can be interpreted. Not only can your nutritional status be viewed, but we can also learn much about how efficiently your body is working.
Mineral content of the hair reflects the mineral content of the body’s tissues. If a mineral deficiency or excess exists in the hair, it usually indicates a mineral deficiency or excess within the body, or bio- unavailability.
WHY TEST FOR MINERALS?
Minerals are the “spark plugs” of life. They are involved in almost all enzyme reactions within the body Without enzyme activity, life ceases to exist. A trace mineral analysis is preventive as well as being useful as a screening tool.
