HTMA ( Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis)

HTMA ( Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis)

Hair analysis can assist in identifying mineral patterns which may be associated with stress, energy, digestion, blood sugar and carbohydrate imbalances, metabolism, hormones, infections, thyroid, and adrenal activity. Health deteriorates and symptoms increase as mineral ratios go more and more out of balance, so the HTMA can serve as a guide to balance minerals and restore health.

This simple, at-home functional test evaluates 8 toxic metals, 15 nutritional elements, 14 additional elements, and 7 significant mineral ratios, giving you a wealth of insights into your health.

    Minerals are the spark plugs of the body and are involved in almost every single enzyme reaction in the entire body. Their availability and usability will determine how well the body functions.

    Hair tissue mineral analysis is a valuable foundational assessment of your baseline health. This test is the easiest and most affordable way to determine if you have heavy metal toxicity and mineral deficiency, which are two of the primary drivers of disease.

    Hair analysis can assist in identifying mineral patterns which may be associated with stress, energy, digestion, blood sugar and carbohydrate imbalances, metabolism, hormones, infections, thyroid, and adrenal activity. Health deteriorates and symptoms increase as mineral ratios go more and more out of balance, so the HTMA can serve as a guide to balance minerals and restore health.

    Sample Report

    Our 3-in-1 hair testing solution provides accurate health metrics in 3 crucial areas:

    • Key Minerals 

      Balanced levels are critical for over 700 bodily functions

    • Heavy Metals

      Higher levels can be toxic to your health

    •  Metabolism

       Understanding how your body converts what you eat and drink into energy

    How Does the Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis Work? 

    • You'll learn exactly which heavy metals you have​
    • ​You’ll see your mineral deficiencies and which minerals you need (or don’t need) to supplement. This is what I call the sniper approach to supplementation, as opposed to a shotgun approach. Rather than randomly supplement, it’s much better to supplement only what you need​
    • ​You’ll see your mineral toxicities (yes, some minerals can be toxic in excess!)​
    • ​You’ll discover which minerals and nutrients are out of balance (the ratios can be just as important as the levels)​
    • ​​
    • And you’ll discover EXACTLY why you haven’t been able to thrive or get the results you want (yet)​

    This Single Test Can Help to Transform Your Body and Change Your Life

    Benefits of HTMA Testing

    Your hair test results will show you the vitamins and nutrients you have in deficiency or excess. We've had many customers purchasing hundreds of dollars of vitamins only to discover that they weren't treating the root cause of their health issues. You'll know exactly what you need to do to put your health back on track.

    In some cases, hair test results reveal that supplements are actually harming your health because you were already overloaded. Calcium is a common mineral that you may be overconsuming.

    In that case, you would be paying for a supplement that is actually costing you your vitality, energy, and good mood.

    Is the HTMA Test Right For You?

    By now, it should be clear: a hair tissue mineral analysis test is THE essential first step in your healing journey.

    Without the information the test provides, it's like you're wandering around in the dark.

    You could spend hundreds of dollars more each month on high-quality, organic food, and still not feel any better...

    You could try diet after diet, and one exercise program after another — and still not lose weight...

    And you could try every possible solution for energy – from coffee to adrenal supplements and beyond, and still feel tired...

    Well, it's true that getting a hair mineral analysis test is one of the best things you can do for your health. In fact, these hair tests are more accurate than blood or urine tests for your mineral deficiency, heavy metal toxicity, and metabolism. 

    Your hair sample can reveal a lot about your health. Hair test results include your levels of nutritional elements such as calcium, zinc, and magnesium as well as over 30 other markers. They’ll show your levels of heavy metals, and any extra elements inside your hair that reflect your body’s current state.

    How It Works

    We do this by testing a very small amount of your hair. Say no to painful blood draws. We can extract crucial data from your hair samples.  This method is not only easier and more affordable, it also gives you more accurate results than blood!

    Frequently Asked Questions

     Are hair analysis tests accurate? 

    Hair tissue mineral analysis is supported by an impressive body of literature in a variety of respected national and international scientific publications. Over the past 25 years, hair mineral testing has been extensive. Each year in the United States alone, federally licensed clinical laboratories perform over 150,000 hair mineral assays for health care professionals interested in an additional screening aid for a comprehensive patient evaluation. This does not take into consideration the thousands of subjects used in numerous continuing research studies conducted by private and government research agencies. 

     What minerals are in human hair? 

    Human hair contains many elements, including minerals and toxic metals

    Other important elements such as Vanadium can also be found. Your hair can show you the entire periodic table.

     What can my Hair Analysis reveal? 

    As you can tell from above, we can identify a lot! The test results will show your mineral deficiencies and imbalances.

You will receive insight into your metabolic activity, adrenal function, thyroid function, and parathyroid activity. 

     What About Heavy Metals? 

    While we’re exposed to countless toxins in the modern world, none are as damaging as heavy metals.There are over 30 toxic heavy metals that negatively affect your health. Here are 8 most common metals that most people have in their body...

    Aluminum (Al): Found in underarm deodorant, cosmetics, dental fillings, vaccines, the air we breathe and aluminum cans.

    Cesium (Cs): Nuclear fallout from Fukushima and other nuclear disasters and testing contributes to fatigue, muscle cramps, and cancers.

    Nickel (Ni): Found in fast and processed foods, partially hydrogenated oils, jewelry, braces and air pollution from cars and coal burning.

    Lead (Pb) :  Lead is ingested from lipstick, mascara and auto exhaust. It’s still in the soils from leaded gasoline (banned decades ago)
