Most of us live busy lives. We want to feel good about how we look. And we all need some well deserved pampering from time to time. So, every about every six weeks, we ladies go to a hair dresser for a haircut, and a some of us for hair coloring too. The way we cut our hair tells a story to others, like short and sassy, or long and flowing. And we all have had those “hat days.” When nothing we do works so we reach for a hat instead, put in on top of our hair, smile and go about our busy day.
If we put aside the personal looks and stuff concerning our hair, have you ever thought that our hair can tell a story about our health, including a story about the minerals in the body? With all that we have done and spent on our hair, can our hair teach us something about our wellness, health, and energy? Could our hair inform us and tell us about what is going on inside of us? And in doing so, help keep our bodies strong and healthy as we live our busy lives?
What is really in the hair we are getting cut or colored? What can your hair really tell you about your body and the minerals inside of you?
Hair is the second most metabolically active tissue in the body. The hair tissue is affected by the nutrients in our blood, the toxins in our perspiration and environment. Hair is also a product of our genetics, hormones and enzymes. The hair represents what is occurring inside the cells and at the sub molecular levels of the body. Hair gives a reading of what the body has been exposed to over time.
Your hair can tell us about the minerals in your body. Health changing and possible life saving knowledge can be gathered from a simple test called a hair mineral analysis test.
A hair analysis test may be used as a guide to which minerals may be deficient in the body and which mineral levels are too high and may be hindering good health. For example the minerals calcium, magnesium, sodium and potassium should all be in balance. If sodium / potassium are high with calcium / magnesium low the symptoms of hyperactivity, anxiety or even trouble sleeping may occur. Plus if there is a toxic metal tissue burden it can disrupt mineral balance within the body and cause adverse symptoms.
Iron deficiency symptoms: extreme, fatigue, pale skin, weakness, shortness of breath, chest pains, frequent infections, headache, dizziness, coldness, brittle nails, fast heartbeat, poor appetite, feeling of tingling and crawling in your legs (RLS)
Magnesium deficiency symptoms: calcium deficiency, poor heart health, weakness, tremors, nausea, anxiety, high blood pressure, Type II Diabetes, respiration issues, dizziness, fatigue, potassium deficiency, difficulty swallowing, poor memory, confusion
Potassium deficiency symptoms: muscle weakness, spasms, cramps and tetany, paralysis, muscle stiffness, aching and tenderness, abdominal bloating, pain and cramping, heart palpitations, dizziness and fainting, frequent urination and extreme thirst, numbing and tingling.
Your hair CAN tell you about the minerals in your body. And a hair analysis test is easy to order and we will help you interpret the results.

Testimony, No More Hair Loss!
I had a hair analysis done a few months ago. I got one done because my hair was falling out and my nails were breaking. The hair analysis showed I was not absorbing my nutrients well enough, especially calcium. The protocol Nutritionally Yours suggested enhanced my absorption and helped strengthen my body. My hair is full and healthy and my nails stopped breaking.
Thank you !
