Hair Mineral Analysis

As hair grows, it is exposed to the blood, lymph and extra-cellular fluids that circulate throughout the body.  When hair reaches the surface of the skin, it hardens, locking the metabolic products accumulated during the formation of the hair strand.  As a result, it provides a lasting record of the mineral status, toxic metals and nutritional metabolic activity of the body. 

The body is dynamic.  Nutrition provides the foundation for optimal health.  Each of us is metabolically and biochemically unique.  There is no one size fits all solution to dietary and supplement recommendations. Ensuring that individuals are eating the proper diet and taking the correct nutritional supplements for their unique biochemistry is imperative to good health. 

Testing is an integral component necessary to create a customized nutrition plan. Over time, imbalances in the minerals, vitamins and enzymes may lead to compromised health and disease.  Correcting nutritional imbalances supports long term health and vitality. Testing provides a scientific basis for correcting imbalances.

The Hair Mineral Analysis will identify mineral imbalances and toxic mineral/heavy metal levels in the body. Colleen will send you a testing kit in the mail. In addition, you will complete a brief health questionnare, a  3 day food journal and a disclaimer document. It takes approximately two weeks for your test to be completed by Trace Elements, Inc. once they receive your hair sample. Colleen will send you a digital copy of your results and schedule  a 45 minute Skype consultation to discuss your results and personalized action plan. 


Please contact Colleen if you'd like additional information.

Re-testing is recommended after at 3-6 month intervals.
