Hair Mineral Analysis


Initial Hair Mineral Analysis Fee $195.00

Follow Up Evaluation Retest $145.00

Hair mineral analysis is a non invasive test used to obtain screening and monitoring information. Having optimal levels and ratios of essential nutrient minerals supports optimum cellular function. Hair Mineral Analysis reveals and explains the causes of many health symptoms and disease, whose underlying causes are largely related to nutritional deficiencies, mineral imbalances and heavy metal and chemical toxicity. Hair Mineral Analysis is an excellent biopsy material. It is easy to sample, easily preserved and transported, represents a soft tissue of the body, and is a storage and eliminative tissue.  As hair grows it forms a permanent record of the body’s nutritional deficiencies or excesses. Lab results determine your toxic load. Retests are used to monitor detoxification progress. 

Your hair can be tested because it is one of many places the body eliminates minerals and heavy metals. The individual mineral levels, ratios of minerals to each other and patterns of minerals deposited in the hair reveal all kinds of things about your body chemistry and health conditions.  This information, along with dietary and nutritional evaluations, will provide the basis for a nutritional balancing program to establish and maintain optimal levels of wellness.   By correcting tissue mineral levels and ratios with proper diet, supplementary nutrients and lifestyle modifications, many physical and behavioral health conditions can be prevented or even reversed. 

What Can A Hair Mineral Analysis Reveal?

Hair mineral analyses are screening tests only and do not diagnose disease.

However, a properly interpreted hair analysis can reveal various mineral imbalances that indicate a tendency for various conditions. A hair mineral analysis provides a picture of body chemistry including:

  • Heavy Metal Toxicity
  • Mineral Deficiencies and Imbalances
  • Nervous System Imbalances
  • Protein Synthesis
  • Energy Levels
  • Mental Health Issues
  • Liver & Kidney Stress

Common Causes Of Mineral Imbalances

Many factors contribute to mineral deficiencies and imbalances. Here are a few examples:


  • Stress depletes minerals from the body, most notably magnesium and zinc.
  • Toxic Metals and Chemicals. They can replace minerals in enzyme binding sites and interfere with mineral absorption.
  • Chronic viral and bacterial infections are subtle stressors on the body, depleting minerals. Many suffer from gut dysbiosis, Lyme and many other low-grade chronic infections.
  • Toxic Food Supply. Our food and soils are depleted of minerals, which is why everyone needs nutritional supplements. Hybrid crops, superphosphate fertilizers (i.e. Miracle Grow), refined foods, pesticides, food additives and more, all contribute to a nutritionally depleted and toxic food supply.
  • Drinking Water. Tap water is not safe due to added chlorine, aluminum, fluoride and sometimes copper, which cause toxicity or displace other minerals.
  • Unhealthy lifestyles. Many individuals do not get enough sleep, don’t exercise enough (or too much) or have other unhealthy lifestyle habits.

Heavy Metal Toxicity

Presently, humanity is exposed to the highest levels of toxic metals in recorded history, up to several thousand times higher than just a hundred years ago. Everyone has metals in their body; the question is how much do you have? Removing them from the body can vastly improve health, mental functioning, energy and performance.

Many health conditions are caused or exacerbated by heavy metal toxicity. Metals can contribute to any imaginable health ailment or condition including cases of diabetes (iron), cancer (cadmium), multiple sclerosis (mercury), Alzheimer’s disease (aluminum), and others.

Individuals at the leading edge of intellectual and physical performance, including CEO’s, professional athletes, high-level entertainers, elite military, top scientists, and intellectuals, know the value of excellent nutrition and its positive effect on performance. By improving your nutritional status and balancing biochemistry with HTMA, you will experience a higher state of performance and health. 

Advantages of Hair Mineral Analysis

  • Hair Mineral Analysis is more cost-effective than other biomonitoring tests (e.g., blood, urinalysis, radiological imaging).
  • Hair is recommended by the EPA as the tissue of choice for the assessment of chronic toxic metal levels.
  • Obtaining a hair sample is inexpensive, quick and easy, non-invasive and safe compared with a blood draw.
  • Blood serum has self-protective homeostatic (balancing) mechanisms which affect trace element levels. This can present a misleading impression that everything is better than it may be.
  • Chronic, long-term mineral changes (retention or losses) are more easily detected in hair than blood.
  • Concentrations of most elements are significantly higher in hair than blood.
  • Hair provides a biological activity record of past and present trace element levels
