Hair Analysis Mineral Health Test
**AVAILABLE IN THE UK ONLY**
Service to assess the body's mineral deficiencies and toxin levels, hair
mineral analysis can check for even the smallest amounts of toxins,
heavy metals, trace elements and contaminants.
Hair Analysis Test - Mineral Check
The hair test can check for mineral imbalances and
determine concentrations of toxic heavy metal contaminants with a hair
The hair sample is taken at home by you and returned in a prepaid
envelope supplied by us when you purchase the hair test kit, then all
you need to do is wait for your results to arrive in the post (please
note this can take up to 3 weeks from when you send off the sample)
This is to give you an indication of the data you will receive from the
multivariate hair analysis service.
The detailed report is 6 pages long including testing and analysis for
eight toxic metals along with a comprehensive mineral profile.
The results from the hair test are displayed in an easy to read graph
Detailed dietary and supplement recommendations

We will send you a self testing pack hair analysis kit with a letter
containing instructions for collecting a hair sample and a prepaid
return envelope (GB, Free Post) simply fill in your details and pop it
in the post.
Based on the hair test results, nutritional and therapeutic measures can
be recommended to correct the imbalances and aid the removal of toxins
from the body after testing.
Mineral deficiency tests are the first step to understanding your body's
Hair test to check for trace-elements
The body contains 29 essential elements, the hair analysis test can help
you establish what elements are out of balance in your body, your
mineral profile will provide data on significant ratios of minerals
The purpose of hair tissue mineral analysis is to re-establish a normal
balance of body chemistry through individually designed dietary
Properly followed this may then help remove toxic metals and enhance the
ability of the body to more efficiently utilize the minerals that are

Hair analysis - get tested for heavy metals poisoning
The hair mineral test results includes a detailed report on bio
accumulation levels of harmful toxic heavy metals that
can cause sickness, fatigue and disease.
There are ever increasing levels of pollution in our environment caused
by a variety of factors including the use of chemicals in industry.
Every person is exposed to toxic metals to some degree, their retention
by the body is dependent upon other substances present.
Heavy metals are present in all biological systems, they can also can be
found in some pharmaceutical drugs, ideally levels of heavy metals
should be as low as possible in the human body.
By examining the toxic metal levels from the hair sample in relation to
the protective minerals, the extent to which heavy metals may be
involved in abnormal chemistry can frequently be seen.
There is a growing body of evidence that suggests a link between heavy
metals and significant developmental and neurological damage to the
Toxic metals have a negative effects on the healthy development of
babies and children and are implemented in a multitude of possible
serious health conditions.
Although there is not yet a consensus agreement between medical
professionals as to the direct relationship between toxic chemicals and
There is a lot of evidence that heavy metal toxicity or mineral
deficiency can complicate and in many cases aggravate existing health
Monitoring human exposure to metals using scalp hair analysis as a tool
for assessing toxins can provide an insight into underlying health
Quantitative analysis of untreated hair samples is one of the most
accurate ways of detecting toxic metals in your body tissues.
This method is ideal for testing for toxic metals including common
pollutants such as lead and mercury.
Nutritional deficiencies and toxic metals
The trace elements hair analysis test service and mineral deficiency
testing will detect levels of nutrient minerals and toxic
metals found in the body.
Nutrient minerals are considered essential for many biological functions
and play key roles in metabolic functions.
Cellular metabolism and support
Anti-oxidant and endocrine activity
Water and acid/alkaline balance
Factors that can effect nutrition:
Genetic and metabolic disorders
Exposure to heavy metals.
Nutrient minerals and Toxic metals:
The procedure also checks for additional minerals present
which are considered essential for the human body.
Further studies are being conducted to further define
their biological and nutritional roles.
Other metals checked for
How to take a sample
Taking a sample for use with the hair mineral analysis test kits is
easy, supplied with the test is a card with complete instructions of how
and where to take a sample from.
Only a small amount of hair is required for testing, approximately 100
micrograms (or one teaspoon).
Included in the test kit is a piece of card that converts to a simple
scale, placing the sample on the scale helps you easily determine when
you have an adequate sample.
Trace elements mineral check results
This test will check for minerals and trace elements, your profile can
provide a unique insight into your nutritional biochemistry.
The recommendations contained within the report are specifically
designed according to your metabolic type, mineral status, age
Additional recommendations may be based upon other supporting clinical
This section of the mineral hair analysis report will discuss your
metabolic profile which is based on research conducted by Dr D
Each classification is established by evaluating the hair tissue mineral
test results and determining the degree to which the minerals may be
associated with a stimulating and /or inhibiting effect up to the main
energy producing endocrine glands.
The endocrine glands regulate nutrient absorption, excretion, metabolic
utilization, and incorporation into the tissues of the body, the skin,
organs, bone, hair and nails.
How efficiently each nutrient is utilized depends largely upon proper
functioning of the endocrine glands.
Low thyroid activity as well as low adrenal grand function will
contribute to lowering the metabolic rate.
Dietary factors such as low protein intake, high carbohydrate intake and
eating refined carbohydrates, especially those containing appreciable
amounts of sugar have an indirect yet significant effect in suppressing
the metabolic rate.
Poor absorption and utilization of nutrients found in the foods that are
consumed will result in decreased energy production on a cellular level,
thereby, affecting metabolism, in turn a lowered metabolic rate will
have an adverse effect upon the digestion process, thereby creating a
A past occurrence of a severe or chronic viral infection can contribute
to a decrease in the metabolic rate, due to the body's
neural-immunological response to infection.
After a prolonged period of time a diminished metabolic rate such as
indicated in these test results has been correlated with fatigue, cold
hands and feet, easy weight gain and craving for sweets.
There are several more sections in the test report , i.e. - Nutrient
Mineral Level / Nutrient Mineral Ratios.
What to expect during program
The mineral-check hair report will then go on to discuss your food
allergies, what to avoid in foods and what foods are recommend that you
have more of.
The mobilization and elimination of certain metals may cause temporary
As an example if and excess accumulation of iron or lead is contributing
to arthritis, a temporary flare-up of the condition may occur from time
This discomfort can be expected until removal of excess metal is
The Doctors report may recommend nutrition vitamins and minerals
supplements as well as a good balanced diet.
Please note that re-evaluation using the another sample and test kit
(call us for a discount) should be obtained after 3 months or more to
allow the necessary changes to take effect.
