What is Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA)?
Mineral and elemental balance is vital in keeping your body functioning at its best. The purpose of Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis testing is to identify toxic and heavy metals, nutrient and mineral imbalances in your body. These imbalances can stem from both external exposure and/or the food you eat.
Could Hair Tissue Mineral Analyisis help me?
It’s possible to have an imbalance caused by a lack of just one mineral, which in turn adversely affects all of the other minerals and elements in your system; the effects of which can be mental, emotional or physical.
What can I expect from an HTMA session?
During your first consultation, your practitioner will take a sample of your hair using thinning scissors (this can be done prior to your session by your hairdresser) and a comprehensive personal and family health history.
Your hair sample will be sent to a lab in Australia, which specialises in HTMA analysis.
Once your HTMA results are returned, your practitioner will meet with you to go through the results, identify any areas that are out of balance and create a treatment plan to best meet your needs.
