What exactly is hair analysis?
Your hair contains all the minerals present in your body, including the nutritional minerals and the toxic metals. Hair mineral analysis is a laboratory test that measures the levels of these minerals in the hair. The results reflect your nutritional status and how efficiently your body is working. Hair analysis is a practical, non-invasive method of testing for mineral imbalances.
How can hair analysis help me achieve better health?
Health care providers are well aware of the vast amount of research linking nutrition to disease. But what serves as good nutrition for one person may not be true for you. This valuable tool indicates which minerals you need more of, and which should be avoided or removed from the body to improve health and functioning. Results can be used to determine the best nutritional care plan for your unique body.
Is hair analysis reliable?
Did you know that in the past twenty years there are well over a thousand references in peer-reviewed journals that document and support the reliability of hair mineral analysis? Not all laboratories are created equal however. Trace Elements analyses over 50,000 hair samples per year. They stay up to date on current research and specialize in hair analysis testing exclusively.
How is the hair analysed and what does the lab report consist of?
Trace Elements laboratory results and interpretations are based on scientific studies and on-going research conducted by David L. Watts, Ph.D. The hair is not washed or rinsed according to best practice procedures. Each report evaluates multiple factors, including nutritional mineral levels, their interrelationships, heavy metals, and metabolic catagorization. Age, sex, and current health symptoms are also taken into consideration. What emerges is a comprehensive report complete with graphs and accompanying explanations and recommendations for you and your health care professional.
