Minerals are critical for abundant life and health. Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis is a test that measures the mineral content in your hair. Hair contains all the minerals present in your body including toxic metals. This test gives a clear picture of your internal environment, nutritional status and how efficiently your body is working.
We consume food and retain nutrition and discovering what your body needs and when it needs it is very important.
What can cause a mineral imbalance? Improper diet, stress, medications, pollution/toxins, nutritional supplements and even inherited patterns. Mineral analysis provides you with an economical and sensitive indicator of these long term effects.
Many factors can affect mineral nutrition, such as; food preparation, dietary habits, genetic and metabolic disorders, disease, medications, stress, environmental factors, as well as exposure to heavy metals. Rarely does a single nutrient deficiency exist in a person today. Multiple nutritional imbalances however are quite common, contributing to an increased incidence of adverse health conditions. In fact, it is estimated that mild and sub-clinical nutritional imbalances are up to ten times more common than nutritional deficiency alone.
