Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis
Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA) is a quantitative test that measures the mineral composition of hair, (precise to parts per million). It is a safe and non-invasive test that reflects the level of nutrients and toxic elements in body tissue.
It is regarded by many integrative doctors, naturopaths, nutritional therapists and vets as one of the most valuable screening tools available in everyday and preventative health care. Hair samples will pick up imbalances that a routine blood test can miss. HTMA is a great way to prevent the onset of health conditions as mineral imbalances are seen in the body long before these conditions become chronic.
Elements tested include: Calcium, Magnesium, Sodium, Potassium, Copper, Zinc, Phosphorus, Iron, Manganese, Chromium, Selenium, Cobalt, Molybdenum, Sulfur, Uranium, Arsenic, Beryllium, Mercury, Cadmium, Lead, Aluminum, Germanium, Barium, Bismuth, Rubidium, Lithium, Nickel, Platinum, Thallium, Vanadium, Strontium, Tin, Titanium, Tungsten, Zirconium.
Instructions: Once payment has been made, fill out the HTMA Request form (emailed after purchase), cut hair sample and place in Submittal Envelope or any paper envelope. Send Form and Submittal Envelope to: InterClinical Laboratories P O Box 6474 Alexandria NSW 2015 Australia.
You will receive your test results and report in approximately 2-3 weeks from the date the lab receives your hair sample. A 15 minute phone consult will then be provided by Naturopath Chloe to interpret your report and provide you with recommendations. Supplements are not included in price*
