Mineral Hair Analysis
Mineral hair analysis is an analytical test that measures the mineral content of the hair. It is a non-invasive relatively inexpensive method of testing and is very accurate. It gives way for personalized medicine, wherein the test serves an excellent method for assessing, monitoring and guiding the correction and improvement of one’s body chemistry.
A hair sample properly obtained, analyzed, and interpreted, can reveal various mineral imbalances that indicate tendencies for various conditions. A hair mineral analysis provides a picture of body chemistry including:
- heavy metal toxicity
- mineral deficiencies and imbalances
- metabolic rate (fast or slow)
- adrenal fatigue
- thyroid function
- nervous system imbalances
- protein synthesis
- energy levels
- mental health issues
- liver and kidney stress
- carbohydrate tolerance and sugar imbalances like Diabetes mellitus and insulin resistance
- inherited mineral patterns
- It can even reveal if someone is a sociopath!
Why are micronutrients important?
Given the biological role of trace elements, they are involved in almost all biochemical processes in the human body, the environment pollution issues of concern not only to environmentalists today, but also physicians of all specialties.
Of the 92 naturally occurring 81 chemical elements found in the human body. 12 elements are called structural because they comprise 99% of the elemental composition of the human body ( C, O, H, N, Ca, Mg, Na, K, S, P, F, Cl).
Assessment of Mineral Status
As the hair is being formed, prior to extrusion from the scalp, it is exposed to the blood, lymph, and intracellular fluids. When it accumulates as the cortex of the hair shaft hardens, the internal metabolic environment is preserved as a biochemical record.
Hair is one of the most readily accessible tissues to examine, and given the vast amount of information, it is one of the most economical nutritional tests available today.
The advantages of Hair Analysis include:
- It works for nutritional balancing assessment.
- Hair is less susceptible to erratic changes in the blood affecting trace element levels.
- Mineral levels in the hair are about ten times that of blood.
- Collecting a hair sample (at home) is quick, easy, painless and non-invasive.
- Hair is a fairly rapidly growing tissue.
- Specialized conditions for handling and mailing hair and nail samples are not necessary.
- Hair is a stable biopsy material that remains viable for years, if needed.
- Hair provides an accurate long-term record of mineral excesses and deficiencies and of metabolism
- Hair is a non-essential, excretory tissue. The body often throws off toxic substances in the hair which is very helpful to identify toxic metals.
- Hair analysis is among the most cost-effective, accurate and reliable mineral analyses.
- Properly interpreted, hair analysis provides an excellent Rx for a healthier lifestyle!
Who and why?
If you, your children and loved ones:
- live and work in adverse conditions;
- exposed to chronic stress (intensive work, study, troubles in personal life, etc.);
- often sick;
- suffer from allergies;
- constantly feel tired and irritable;
- dissatisfied with the state of the skin, hair and nails;
- you have the genetic predisposition to a particular disease;
- are exposed to heavy metals’ toxicity.
A Hair Analysis is:
- SAFE – a noninvasive screening tool for young and old alike
- EASY – the hair sample is collected in the convenience of your home
- HOLISTIC – a natural approach to wellness through nutrition
- E.P.A. RECOGNIZED – “hair might be a more appropriate tissue for studying community exposure to toxic metals than blood or urine analysis.”
What the test shows:
- Nutritional Elements – Minerals that are building blocks of life. These are minerals essential to health like calcium (Ca), magnesium (Mg), sodium (Na), potassium (K), copper (Cu), zinc (Zn), phosphorous (P), iron (Fe), manganese (Mn), chromium (Cr), selenium (Se), iodine (I), boron (B), cobalt (Co), molybdenum (Mo), and sulfur (S).
- Toxic Elements – These minerals do not belong in the body as they have no known biological function. These will impact the absorption, retention, utilization and metabolic function of nutritional elements. Some of these included in the test are antimony (Sb), uranium (U), arsenic (As), beryllium (Be), mercury (Hg), cadmium (Cd), lead (Pb), and aluminum (Al).
- Additional Elements – These minerals may be conditionally essential or are useful in industrial settings. In high levels, these pose potential toxicity. The ones included are germanium (Ge), barium (Ba), bismuth (Bi), rubidium (Rb), lithium (Li), nickel (Ni), platinum (Pt), thallium (Tl), vanadium (Va), strontium (Sr), tin (Sn), tungsten (W), and zirconium (Zr).
- Significant Ratios – Ca/P, Na/K, Ca/K, Zn/Cu, Na/Mg, Ca/Mg, Fe/Cu
- Toxic Ratios – Ca/Pb, Fe/Pb, Fe/Hg, Se/Hg, Zn/Cd, Zn/Hg, S/Hg, S/Cd, S/Pb
- Additional Ratios – Ca/Sr, Cr/V, Cu/Mo, Fe/Co, K/Co, K/Li, Mg/B, S/Cu, Se/Tl, Se/Sn, Zn/Sn
- Doctor Report – introduction, metabolic type, trends, comments, toxic metals, contraindications, dietary suggestions
