“Minerals are more important factors in human nutrition than vitamins. The body can manufacture many vitamins, but it cannot produce necessary trace minerals or get rid of many possible excesses.” ~Dr. Henry Schroeder
What is a Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis?
A hair tissue mineral analysis is a test that measures the amount of specific minerals in the hair such as calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium, copper, nickel, aluminum and others. It is analyzed in a licensed clinical laboratory where they perform chemical and digestive procedures to determine accurate results with the most cutting edge detection equipment and advance methods.
Hair is used because unlike the blood, it can give an indication of mineral status over a longer period of time which is why it is often used in forensics and drug testing. It is also less invasive and easier as you can do it in the comfort of your own home.
HTMA is a great tool to determine if you have an excess or deficiency of minerals, how they relate to one another and much more. You will find out what type of metabolizer you are, what foods work best for you, which foods to avoid, toxic metal levels, energy levels and insight into the function of some of your organs and glands.
How it Works
You collect a small sample of your hair which will be sent to a lab where they will analyze it for minerals to determine deficiencies/excesses. I provide you with the collection packet and instructions as well as a stamped envelope in which to mail your sample. (For long-distance clients I will mail this kit to you.)
You will receive:
- Copy of the test results (graphs of levels and ratios)
- A complete individualized evaluation and detailed discussion of current mineral levels and ratios
- Recommendations of specific foods and food groups, along with an explanation of why each food is suggested.
- Supplement recommendations based upon age, sex, metabolic type, mineral patterns and specific individual need

Testimonial for HMA:
“I really found the hair sample analysis helpful. It confirmed my suspicions about having low thyroid activity, and explained why I am so tried all the time. It also made me aware of other health risks I have, like osteoporosis. It was more informative than any visit to the doctor I’ve ever had.” ~ Valerie C.
