What is a Tissue Mineral Analysis?
Trace mineral analysis is a test which measure 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 the body may be elevated also. If this is the case, a strong tendency exists for arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries due to calcium placques).
If your calcium level is low, then a tendency exists towards 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 dysfunction's before any symptoms become manifest.

Why Test for Minerals?
Minerals are the spark plugs 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 tool.
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 vista 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:
Common Causes of a Mineral Imbalance
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.
