Hair Analysis

Hair analysis is an invaluable 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/Hair Mineral Analysis?

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.  Example:  If your hair reveals an elevated calcium level two or three times normal, then your calcium level within the body maybe elevated also.  If this is the case, a strong tendency exists for arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries due to calcium plaques).  If your calcium level is low, then a tendency exists toward osteoporosis (demineralization of bone), increased tendency to bone fractures, dental caries, periodontal disease, muscle cramps, etc. Various mineral imbalances, as revealed by hair analysis frequently lead to metabolic dysfunctions before any symptoms become noticeable.

Who needs a 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 opportunity for the solving of your own particular problem by recognizing your biochemical individuality.  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, longitudinal ridging or deep horizontal grooves in fingernails, brittle hair and nails, lack of growth, or mood swings.

We are able to take your hair sample in the office or receive it from you through the mail if you reside out of town.  Once we have your hair sample, we send it to the lab and normally receive your results in 5 – 10 business days.

Whether you are interested in just the hair analysis or to also partake in a supplement program that is recommended based on your personal analysis, please call us at 928 649 0779, or email us at
