THE MINERALIFE MINERAL BALANCING PROGRAM FOR MAXIMUM HEALTH
The Mineralife Mineral Balancing Program is a customized mineral balancing program that will provide you with the information you need to know to make informed decisions regarding your mineral selections. Hair mineral analysis is a laboratory test that measures mineral content present in the hair. A small amount of hair taken easily from the scalp is scientifically analyzed using an ICP Mass Spectrometer. The mineral content of the hair will give an overview of the mineral levels in the body’s tissues and the changes that occur over time.
Your health is priceless. Protect it!
At the root of optimal health is mineral balance. Testing includes full analysis reports and diet and lifestyle considerations designed to get you balanced. This includes a complete individualized evaluation and detailed discussion of your metabolic type, current mineral levels and ratios, and their impact upon body chemistry. Recommendations of specific foods and food groups, along with an explanation of why each food is suggested is included. A complete supplement list is also provided (individual supplements are charged separately and are not included in original price.)
Many symptoms are associated with mineral and vitamin deficiencies and heavy metals. Mineral imbalances reduce needed vitamins in our bodies, cause arthritis, depression, frontal headaches, high blood pressure, weight gain, adrenal fatigue, tendency toward hypo- or hyper- thyroidism, hypoglycemia, osteoporosis, immune difficulties, and contribute to learning difficulties, etc.! We utilize the leading US lab for our HTMA.
Hair tissue mineral analysis (HTMA), is an analytical test which measures the mineral content of the hair. The sampled hair, obtained by cutting the first inch and one-half of growth closest to the scalp at the nape of the neck, is prepared in a licensed clinical laboratory through a series of chemical and high temperature digestive procedures. Testing is then performed using highly sophisticated detection equipment and methods to achieve the most accurate and precise results.
Hair is ideal tissue for sampling and testing. First, it can be cut easily and painlessly and can be sent to the lab without special handling requirements. Second, clinical results have shown that a properly obtained sample can give an indication of mineral status and toxic metal accumulation following long term or even acute exposure. A HTMA reveals a unique metabolic world: intracellular activity, which cannot be seen through most other tests. This provides a blueprint of the biochemistry occurring during the period of hair growth and development. Hair is used as one of the tissues of choice by the Environmental Protection Agency in determining toxic metal exposure. A 1980 report from the E.P.A. stated that human hair can be effectively used for biological monitoring of the highest priority toxic metals. This report confirmed the findings of other studies in the U.S. and abroad, which concluded that human hair may be a more appropriate tissue than blood or urine for studying community exposure to some trace elements.
Questions & Answers
What is Tissue Mineral Analysis (Hair Analysis)?
Hair tissue mineral analysis is unique in that it inexpensively provides information directly about cellular activity, which is the main site of nutritional metabolism. As important as vitamins are, they can do nothing for the body without proper mineral intake. Vitamins cannot function and are unable to be assimilated without the aid of minerals. Though the body can synthesize some vitamins, it cannot manufacture a single mineral.
Find out if you have toxic elements like Antimony, Aluminum, Arsenic, Beryllium, Cadmium, Lead, Nickel, Mercury, Strontium, Thallium, Tin and others in you system.
How is your Hair analyzed?
Once your sample has arrived it is weighed and trimmed, then digested in a specific reagent to break down the hair structure. The sample is then aspirated into a highly sophisticated scientific instrument (Inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrophotometer).
An informative twelve plus page report is forwarded to you or to the practitioner in an easy to read graph style format showing various levels of nutrient or toxin imbalance in Mg% or milligrams per 100 grams of hair. This will show how your value relates to the normal or ideal reference range.
Is Hair Analysis A Valid Basis For Evaluation Of A Person's Chemistry?
Are There Any Special Requirements For Submitting a Hair Sample?
It is very important to place the hair sample in the sampling envelope provided before sending to the laboratory. Do not place hair samples in plastic baggies or aluminum foil. Do not tape or staple the hair sample to the scale or sampling envelope.
