Benefits of Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis
The Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis I work with is a screening test that is accurate, non-invasive, and relatively inexpensive. It shows the levels of 16 minerals and 5 toxic metals.
Minerals (such as magnesium and zinc) are sometimes called the 'spark plugs' of the body. That’s because they’re needed by many enzymes as co-factors, facilitators and inhibitors and as part of the enzymes themselves. Certain metals (such as aluminum and mercury) are considered toxic because they can be irritating, especially at higher concentrations.
Just like with all other body tissues, minerals are deposited into our hair. Although our hair isn’t considered to be alive once it’s outside of our scalp, the minerals remain. The accuracy of the test is maintained by using a sample of hair cut close to the scalp. What do the results tell us?
I like to think of the results of Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis as a snapshot of your biochemistry. The results tell us:
if you’re low in essential trace minerals
if you have hidden toxic metals
how well your adrenal and thyroid glands are functioning (this influences yourenergy level)
your sugar and carbohydrate tolerance at a cellular level
what stage of stress you’re in
about your overall vitality and energy in the body as they relate to your immune system
trends for various health conditions
Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis is considered a standard test and is used around the world for the monitoring of trace elements and toxic metals in humans and animals. Fun fact: the same technology is used for soil testing and testing of rock samples to detect mineral levels.
When we look at common physical, mental and emotional health conditions through the lens of mineral imbalances and the presence of toxic metals, we have a better understanding of the causes and more importantly, how to heal.
Who I Help
As I'm just starting out, I'll be honest, I'll order a HTMA for practically anyone! If you are interested in your current state of mineral balance, I can facilitate the process of getting that information. That said, I am especially eager to walk with those who are looking to make some targeted and personalized changes based on the results of their test.
How I Do It
Ordering your hair tissue mineral analysis is easy and quick! I'll provide easy-to-follow instructions for clipping your hair sample and we'll send them off to the lab for analysis.
I will analyze the results and provide a personalized report and recommendations. We can then go over the results and I'll answer any questions you have.
What's in It for You
Besides the reclamation of your health, vitality, balance, and sense of well-being? There's knowledge, empowerment, and inner strength that come from choosing to own yourself, your body, and your life.
I feel like I sound like a salesperson here and I don't like that... I'm not trying to "sell" this....but I am honored and grateful to have the opportunity to offer it to those whom it resonates with.
