Hair analysis will detect the deficiencies and excesses  which lead to disease

Hair analysis, or Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA)  is a highly reliable way to sample and detect tissue disturbances.

How accurate is hair analysis?

Mass spectrometry, the technology used in HTMA, is a highly reliable, standard scientific method for analysing the mineral content of plants, rocks and animals - detecting substances by atomic weight.

So how can a hair analysis test  help?

By doing a hair analysis, we are able to obtain a snapshot of our biochemistry over the last 3-4 months.

A sample of hair, cut close to the scalp, provides information about the minerals and other elements that are present in the cells of our body.

The most accurate method for analysis would be to "biopsy" (take a snip) from each and every organ and tissue, in order to establish the levels of  minerals and toxic elements in  the various types of cells in the body.

This however, would not be practical!

So, through extensive research and correlation of data, scientists have established reliable relationships between the levels of minerals and other elements in hair, and in the other tissues of the body.

Now, well trained health care professionals who understand
  1. their biochemistry;
  2. and who have a good understanding of the inter-relationships of  soil science, digestion, dietetics, biochemistry,tissue mineral science and enviromental science and how this affects deficiency, excess, imbalance and toxicity;
  3. and who understand the relationship that "out of range" readings of a hair analysis test have in the development of metaboloic disorders
will be able to detect and correct the imbalances, before symptoms of disease manifest themselves.

Mostly, this can be done by nutritional therapy.
