TISSUE MINERAL ANALYSIS
What can hair analysis
Hair analysis is an individual
screening tool which allows a correct program of
diet and supplementation to be designed for each
individual's specific needs.
Never before has there been available a
metabolic blueprint with such a degree of
applicable scientific accuracy.
What is a tissue mineral
Trace mineral analysis is a test
which measures the mineral content of your hair.
Mineral content of the hair reflects the mineral
content of the body's tissues. If a
mineral deficiency or excess exists in the hair,
it usually indicates a mineral deficiency or
excess within the body, or bio-unavailability.
Examples: If your hair reveals an
elevated calcium level two or three times
normal, then your calcium level within your body
may be elevated also. If this is the case,
a strong tendency exists for arteriosclerosis
(hardening of the arteries due to calcium
If your calcium level is low,
then a tendency exists toward osteoporosis
(demineralization of bone), increased tendency
to bone fractures, dental caries, periodontal
disease, muscles cramps, etc.
Various mineral imbalances, as
revealed by hair analysis frequently lead to
metabolic dysfunctions before any symptoms
Other conditions which may
result or be aggravated by a mineral imbalance
- Thyroid Disturbance
- Prostrate Disorders
- Musculo-Skeletal Disorders
- Cardiovascular Disease
- Skin Rashes
- Emotional Problems
Why Test for Minerals?
Minerals are the "sparkplugs" of life. They
are involved in almost all enzyme reactions within
the body. Without enzyme activity, life ceases
to exist. A trace mineral analysis is
preventive as well as being useful as a screening
Who Needs Hair Analysis?
Anyone who is found ill and no explanation can be
found, or when the cause seems to be found but the
therapy is not wholly effective. Hair analysis
opens up a whole new vista for the solving of your
own particular problem by recognizing your
Even if you are not experiencing a severe problem,
abnormal changes in body chemistry and nutritional
deficiencies may result in early, subtle changes in
the body such as:
White spots in fingernails - indicates a
possible zinc deficiency.
Longitudinal ridging in nails - indicates an
Brittle hair and nails - calcium and copper
Deep grooves across nails - calcium deficiency.
Stretch marks - zinc deficiency.
Lack of growth - zinc deficiency.
Mood Swings - possible toxic metal accumulation
such as lead, mercury, or cadmium. The above
indicators are early signs of metabolic disturbances
and may lead to serious problems if left unchecked.
Common Causes of a Mineral Imbalance:
Improper diet - such as excessive intake of refined carbohydrates and sugars,
strict vegetarian diets or other exclusive diets
Taking vitamins and minerals which are not compatible with your current body
Birth Control Pills
Accumulation of toxic metals from the environment, job, or hobby
Inheritance of mineral patterns from parents
