Minerals are the sparks that create energy and are vital for structural integrity.  “Trace minerals are essential in countless metabolic functions in all phases of the life process.” (Trace Elements, Inc.) For optimal vitality they need to be balanced.  Deficiencies or toxic excesses are problems for energy creation and structural wellness and can be a link to how you are feeling. 

“A HTMA [Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis] reveals a unique metabolic world; intracellular activity, which cannot be seen through most other tests. This provides a blueprint of the biochemistry occurring during the period of hair growth and development.” (Trace Elements, Inc.)

"Hair tissue mineral analysis (HTMA) is an analytical test that assays the mineral composition of the hair.  As a screening test in the preventive health care field, HTMA is proving invaluable as clinical results continue to validate its increasing use.  Interpreted correctly, HTMA may provide indications of mineral imbalances, deficiencies, and excesses of many essential and toxic elements."  (Trace Elements, Inc.)

Engaging Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis may provide a more holistic view upon which to base nutritional therapy.  A properly designed nutritional therapy program can be an effective way to distinguish the basic underlying symptoms that you may be experiencing. It can be used in conjunction with other diagnostic tests your Physician may use to have a more comprehensive picture on which to base recommendations.
