What is Hair Mineral Analysis?
Hair mineral analysis is a highly sophisticated technical procedure performed by a licensed clinical laboratory using the latest state-of-the-art equipment.
Hair mineral analysis provides an accurate screening device for determining mineral imbalances, deficiencies, or any excess of the essential minerals. In addition, and equally important, hair mineral analysis determines if toxic metals, such as lead, aluminum, and cadmium have accumulated in the body.
Why Test For Minerals?
Minerals can be considered more important than vitamins in that they cannot be manufactured by the body. Minerals are the spark plugs in the chemistry of life. Without optimum mineral levels in the body, the other nutrients are not effectively utilized. Minerals are also necessary in the production of hormones and for the proper enzyme activity.
How Does Hair Mineral Analysis Compare with Blood Analysis?
Blood tests can only measure levels occurring at the time of testing. The levels fluctuate with the time of the day the blood sample is drawn, any foods are eaten prior to taking a sample, and even emotional changes. The blood seeks to maintain its biochemical balance even at the expense of organ and body structures. For example, a blood test will indicate normal calcium levels, even when the bones are demineralized.
The metabolic dysfunctions that occur from mineral imbalances can be predicted even before abnormalities are detected in the blood. The hair is more indicative of long term and often short term exposure and provides a more permanent history of a person's intake, environmental exposure, and other factors.
