What is Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis?

Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA) testing is a safe and non-invasive pathology test. It measures the levels and comparative ratios of nutrient and toxic minerals found in hair. It aids identifying nutrient mineral imbalances, toxic heavy metals and mineral excesses, all of which have an effect on mental health.

Every physiological function in the body is catalysed by minerals. They are essential for growth, healing, vitality and wellbeing. They provide the following support:

5 Reasons for a Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis Test

1: Quick and easy collection method

Collection of hair specimens is easy and non-invasive. This makes it a hassle-free screening tool.

2: Cost-effective testing

In comparison, hair analysis is more cost-effective. It provides you with valuable health information without breaking the bank.

3. Accurate detection of mineral imbalances

Long-term deviations of mineral retention or losses are easy to detect in hair. This makes it an accurate method of measuring mineral imbalances. These imbalances can have a direct correlation on related vitamin activity.

4. Assess toxic metal levels

Hair is invaluable in the assessment of toxic metal levels. It provides early detection and prevention of heavy metal toxicity.

5. Preventative action

Modern farming techniques, fertilisers and depleted soils reduce the mineral content of foods. Environmental pollutants, chemical food additives, processed food and chronic stress negatively impact our nutritional status. Many health conditions are aggravated by mineral imbalances.

HTMA reveals over 25 mineral ratios which could be adversely affecting your health

Thus, HTMA testing is an invaluable screening tool in evaluating mental health. It provides reliable data on more than 35 essential minerals, as well as toxic heavy metals and over 25 important mineral ratios.  It reveals valuable health information often not revealed in standard blood and urine tests.  HTMA provides a personalised patient and practitioner interpretive test report.  This report details your current mineral status, plus, highlighting areas of concern.  Sal individualises her dietary recommendations and supplement recommendations for improved health outcomes.
