Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA) is a safe and non-invasive pathology test. The hair analysis test measures the levels and comparative ratios of nutrient and toxic minerals found in hair. The hair analysis is a safe, scientifically proven, non-invasive pathology test. HTMA method of testing hair is regarded by many doctors, naturopaths and nutritional therapists as one of the most valuable screening tools available in everyday and preventative health care.
Minerals are essential for growth, healing, vitality and wellbeing. They provide structural support in bones and teeth, and they maintain the body's pH and water balance, nerve activity, muscle contractions, energy production and enzyme reactions. They are the basic ‘spark plugs' of life. Ideally we should get all the minerals we need from a balanced diet. Unfortunately today this is rarely possible. Modern farming techniques, fertilisers and depleted soils reduce the mineral content of foods. Environmental pollutants, chemical food additives and stressful lifestyles also have a detrimental effect on our nutritional status. Many health conditions are aggravated by mineral imbalances and toxic metal excesses, including cardiovascular disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, migraines, learning difficulties and hyperactivity in children, to name just a few. Consequently, we need to test and monitor our nutritional status more than ever and the HTMA method of testing hair is very effective.
Through this simple hair analysis, a non-invasive pathology test, provides you with data on more than 35 nutrient and toxic minerals, and over 25 important mineral ratios. Although the hair tissue mineral analysis is not completed in house, we arrange for your hair sample to be sent to our pathology laboratory which has rigorous quality control systems. There is no charge from us for this service, however the Laboratory will charge you $132 for the comprehensive hair analysis test. This hair analysis will provide a personalised interpretive report with an assessment of your current mineral status and highlights any areas of concern. From this hair analysis report our Brisbane Natural Health therapists can more accurately recommend dietary changes and nutritional supplements to improve your health and overall wellbeing.
