A Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis reveals a unique metabolic profile that cannot be seen through other tests. Hair cells can 'lock' in information about your exposure to certain nutrients. As your hair grows it forms a permanent record showing what deficiencies and excesses have been building up in your body during the period of hair growth.
Clinical research indicates that hair levels of specific elements, particularly toxic elements such as cadmium, mercury, lead, and arsenic, are highly correlated with pathological disorders. Symptoms of excess toxic metals can include: fatigue, constipation, insomnia, emotional disturbances, and learning disabilities to name but a few. In our technological society, heavy metal toxicity is not at all uncommon.
Many elements are essential to life, assisting in the production of energy and other important biochemical processes, particularly enzyme reactions. Deficiencies or imbalances among elements lead to health problems.
Conditions associated with mineral imbalances and toxic metals:
Depression, Anxiety and other mental health disorders
Hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia
High Blood Pressure
Heart arrhythmia and other cardiovascular diseases
