Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis
In the words of the late author and noted researcher, Dr. Henry Schroeder, trace elements (minerals) are "...more important factors in human nutrition than vitamins. The body can manufacture many vitamins, but it cannot produce necessary trace minerals or get rid of many possible excesses."
WHO'S IT FOR?
Hair tissue mineral analysis (HTMA), is an analytical test of 35 elements within the hair. A HTMA reveals a unique metabolic world: intracellular activity, which cannot be seen through most other tests. This provides a blueprint of the biochemistry occurring during the period of hair growth and development.
Each test report will provide a complete and comprehensive evaluation and discussion of significant mineral levels, ratios and toxic metals as tested in the hair. 35
Copy of the test results (graphic illustration of levels and ratios).
A complete individualized evaluation and detailed discussion of the individual's metabolic type, current mineral levels and ratios, and their impact upon body chemistry.
Recommendations of specific foods and food groups, along with an explanation of why each food is suggested.
Supplement recommendations based upon age, sex, metabolic type, mineral patterns and specific need as seen on the tissue mineral analysis and other accompanying clinical test data and history.
This lab includes a 60 min post results Zoom or phone coaching session with Courtney.
The HTMA is a simple at home hair test. You will receive all necessary components to take your own hair sample and send back to the lab. The sampled hair, obtained by cutting the first inch and one-half of growth closest to the scalp at the nape of the neck, is then prepared in a licensed clinical laboratory through a series of chemical and high temperature digestive procedures. Testing is then performed using highly sophisticated detection equipment and methods to achieve the most accurate and precise results. Results are sent within 2-4 weeks and once available, you will be notified via email to set up your 60 minute results and recommendations session.
