Hair Mineral Analysis

What is Hair Mineral Analysis?

Hair Analysis is a screening tool used to highlight mineral and toxic levels in your body at the time the sample is taken.  It requires a sample of your hair (preferably head hair – and don’t worry, it’s only about a teaspoon), to be sent to a lab.

Hair Analysis not only checks for deficiencies in minerals in your body, but also toxicity levels as well as thyroid, blood sugar and metabolic imbalances. 

Hair analysis is very useful for highlighting potential reasons behind chronic fatigue, mood swings, weight gain/loss, food sensitivities, gut issues, brain fog and much more.

Common symptoms of mineral deficiencies:

Why Hair Analysis?

Have you tried various diets, followed strict nutritional guidance for a while, taken countless supplements and still not feeling quite right?

You may be suffering from mineral deficiencies (or excesses), which are estimated to account for 80-90% of all health issues.

There are many reasons to get a hair mineral test, as not only can we test hair for toxins, but by performing a hair mineral analysis we can find the common causes of mineral intolerance, diseases caused by deficiency of vitamins and when your doctor doesn’t know what’s wrong and can’t find the reason you’re ill, we uncover the indicators that lead to diagnosis, treatment and recovery.

There is plenty of scientific research that links vitamin & mineral deficiencies to cancer and other diseases and the quickest and most reliable way you can find out if you’re at risk is to get a hair mineral test. This will give you vital information to help you beat illness before it even starts.

What is tested?

How reliable are the Hair Mineral Analysis test results?

Hair analysis is extremely accurate.  The laboratory uses sophisticated instruments (mass spectrometry) and has software programmes that allow for extensive quality control.

The laboratory specialises in hair testing exclusively analysing over 75,000 samples a year and full attention is given to assuring the accuracy of your results.

Doesn't a blood or urine test tell me just as much as a hair analysis?

Blood tests give information about your mineral levels at the time of the test only.  If you’ve just eaten a banana your test can indicate a high potassium level for example, whereas this may not actually be the case.  Your hair test indicates your overall level of potassium – so your actual storage levels over a period of time, not just what you ate that day or that week.  A blood test will only accurately report what is being transported in your blood at the time of the test.

Testing for minerals in the urine measures the minerals that are being excreted from your body – not necessarily what has been absorbed as fuel for your body.

So blood and urine tests are like snapshots whereas a hair analysis is the video of your mineral retention.
