Hair Mineral Analysis is a screening test to measure the levels of up to 60 essential minerals and toxic metals. With correct testing and interpretation, one can construct a complete metabolic profile of the human body.

Hair is an excellent biopsy material. It is easy to sample, easily preserved and transported, represents a tissue of the body and is the storage and eliminative tissue. As hair grows it forms a permanent record of the body’s nutritional deficiencies or excesses.

Minerals screened include calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium, phosphorus, copper, zinc, manganese, selenium, iron and cobalt.

Elevated readings can have different meanings depending upon:

Toxic metal screening includes lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic, nickel and aluminum.

A very high reading may represent a toxic amount of the mineral in the hair and in the body tissues in general. In the case of a toxic metal, any deposition or accumulation in the hair indicates some degree of toxicity.

High levels of toxic metals inhibit the body’s ability to process and assimilate specific nutritional elements that are essential to good health and have a proven link to many types of diseases.

This information, along with dietary and nutritional evaluations, will provide the data needed 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 behavioural health conditions can be prevented or reversed.


How to collect Hair Sample

Hair that has been dyed, bleached, straightened or otherwise chemically treated is vulnerable to contamination or removal of hair mineral content. Best results are obtained when hair has not been treated.

Dandruff shampoos containing zinc (Head & Shoulders), selenium (Selsun Blue) and lead (Grecian Formula) or other medicated shampoos/conditioners should not be used prior to taking a sample.

If hair is very short, clean thinning shears may be used.

Hair from the head is preferred, however, pubic hair can also be used, but is best reserved for situations where head hair is unavailable. Do not combine head and pubic hair.

  1. Wash hands and ensure scissors are clean and in good condition.
  2. Collect hair samples from the nape of the neck.
  3. Cut hair as close to the scalp as possible. It is best if small amounts are cut from four to six areas.
  4. Save only new hair growth, about 2.5 cm from the scalp.
  5. 1 gram or approximately 1 Tablespoon is sufficient for analysis.
  6. Seal tightly in a zip-lock bag.
  7. Label the bag and complete Sample Submittal Form (Download 2.8 Mb) where indicate age, weight, how tall you are, your name, last name, e-mail.
  8. Send to us by mail:
