Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis

Our hair is unique in that it can be used in toxicology screening to detect levels and ratios of heavy metals and nutrients stored in tissue.

The body also stores these metals and nutrients in bones, muscles and fat.

for example, levels and ratios of     

Nutrients                          Heavy Metals

  *Calcium                            *Lead         

  *Copper                             *Mercury

  *Zinc                                  *Aluminium


Measuring these levels in blood and urine show considerable fluctuations as they are not stable and will alter throughout the day.

By using Hair tissue we can see accumulation over a longer period of time and therefore detect a more consistent high or low level.

A small piece of hair is taken and sent to the Pathology laboratory where they will generate a report of findings that allows us to establish connections with your health status.
