Why do HTMA testing?

The HTMA test is a screening tool that provides pointers to where your body is imbalanced. I include a Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis test and interpretation of the results with some of my packages, as I believe it gives such good insight into your health over the last few months, which we can use to really address your underlying health issues rather than just focus on symptoms as and when they arise.

Mineral Levels

Minerals are often referred to as “the spark plugs of life”, as they are catalysts for so many biochemical reactions.  Your body needs an optimum level of essential minerals to thrive. Often ours can be out of balance, deficient or excessive.  HTMA also provides insights regarding the bioavailability of minerals. with poor bioavailability a sign of a lack of nutritional co-factors, stress, or the presence of toxic metals. Minerals tested for include calcium, chromium, magnesium, selenium, sodium, phosphorous, potassium, nickel, iron, cobalt, copper, molybdenum, manganese, lithium, zinc, and boron.


Heavy Metal Toxicity

Toxic metals such as lead, aluminium, mercury, cadmium, and arsenic are tested for.  The accumulation of toxic metals in the body has been linked to many health problems, as they interfere with vital enzymes and cause damage to lipids, proteins, and DNA via the production of free radicals.  Toxic metals can also cause loss of essential minerals, compounding health issues. 


Mineral Imbalance Ratios

Ratios show how effectively your various bodily systems are performing; metabolic, stress resilience, thyroid, hormones, adrenals, blood sugar and immune system.
