hair analysis testMuch time and money is spent on the hair on our heads. We wash it, fuss over it, blow dry and style it everyday. Then every few weeks we make an appointment and sit in our hair stylist’s chair for a hair cut and possible color dye process, highlights, etc, etc. Of course it’s good to fuss over our hair because we want to look nice and be clean. So, with everything that you do for your hair, have you ever thought about what your hair can do for you??? Have you ever thought that an easy hair analysis test can help you improve your health?? Well….. it certainly can!

Our hair can tell us a story about what we might be lacking in our bodies, and are we as “healthy” as we think we are! For instance, is the multivitamin that you may be taking actually being absorbed and helping you? Or are certain mineral levels too high in your tissues and thus may be hurting you? If toxin levels are high in the hair and thus in the tissues, should your supplementation focus be detoxing and chelating supports? Are you eating food that provides enough or perhaps too much of a particular mineral?

Did you know that your very own hair is an ideal tissue for sampling and testing?

  • Hair is the second largest tissue in your body, so it is totally natural to test the hair for minerals and toxic build up. What shows up in your hair is indicative of all the other tissues in your body.

  • Hair analysis test results reflect how much of these elements are in your tissues and provide a vivid picture of your internal environment, that very few other health tests reveal.

A hair analysis test will test for minerals, metals, and toxic elements. Some of the elements that are tested are: Aluminum, Arsenic, Copper, Iron, Lead, Mercury, Nickel, Cadmium, Sodium, Chromium, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Selenium, Zinc, Potassium, Cobalt…… name a few.

Why is it important to do a hair analysis test to answer some of your health questions?

  • Trace minerals are essential in many metabolic functions in all phases of the life process.

  • Magnesium is required for normal muscular function, especially the heart. A deficiency has been associated with an increased incidence of health challenges like abnormal heart conditions, anxiety, muscle cramps, insomnia, constipation and nervousness.

  • Potassium is critical for normal nutrient transport into the cell. A deficiency can result in health challenges like muscular weakness, mild depression and lethargy (fatigue).

  • Sodium, if in excess, is associated with health challenges of hypertension, but adequate amounts are required for normal health.

  • Zinc is involved in the production, storage and secretion of insulin and is necessary for growth hormones, skin health, healing capability and much more. The zinc to copper ratio is helpful in mood fluctuations.

Yes! A hair analysis test can reveal a lot about YOUR health and wellness.



Health concerns such as fatigue, weak immunity and sleep problems can stem from nutrient imbalances. There are many factors to take into consideration when considering the following question — What can Cause a Mineral Imbalance?

  • Improper DIET through high intake of refined and processed foods, alcohol and fad diets can all lead to a chemical imbalance.

  • The SOIL in which food is grown or how it was prepared can affect a “healthy” diet.

  • Physical or emotional STRESS are factors that can deplete the body of many nutrients. STRESS can also reduce the body’s absorption and utilization capability of many nutrients.

  • Prescription and over-the-counter MEDICATIONS, such as aspirin, antacids, diuretics, and oral contraceptives, can deplete the body’s stores of nutrient minerals and/or increase the levels of toxic elements.

  • POLLUTION can also contribute to nutrient imbalances. We are continually exposed to a variety of toxic metal sources such as cigarette smoke (cadmium), anti-antiperspirants (aluminum), hair dyes (lead), dental amalgams (mercury and cadmium), and copper and aluminum cookware, to name a few on a list of hundreds of POLLUTION sources.

  • NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENTS, can be a good thing to take. However, if taken in improper amounts or if the wrong supplement is used, this can contribute to biochemical imbalance.

So, with your hair being the second largest tissue in your body, and because it is natural to test the hair for minerals and toxic build up, it makes good common sense to do a hair analysis test, and test for mineral content and heavy metal exposure. We don’t have to wonder what imbalances there might be in our tissues, because a hair analysis test will give us a clear picture of our internal environment, and get us on the road to better health!
