Hair tissue mineral analysis (HTMA)

HTMA is an analytical test which measures the mineral status and toxic metal accumulation of your hair. The test gives a unique insight into your metabolic world and acts as a blueprint for the biochemistry occurring during the period of hair growth. Symptoms of nutrient deficiency may be apparent long before low levels can be detected in the blood making HTMA a more accurate way of assessing nutrient status.

Certain Food, stress, medications and pollution may deplete the body of many nutrients and taking incorrect supplements can contribute to this imbalance. Although HTMA cannot test for vitamin status, minerals and vitamins work in synergy so it would be rare for a mineral to be effected without also impacting the corresponding vitamin.

HTMA is quick and easy to perform. You will receive a report back in approximately two weeks which includes dietary recommendations and a targeted supplement plan to correct any imbalance plus self-care tips appropriate to your case history.
