Hair Mineral Analysis

Hair Mineral Analysis

It’s amazing what information our hair can tell us – everything about a persons metabolism and , a person’s nutritional deficiencies and the level of toxins (heavy metals) present in their body through what’s known as a hair mineral analysis test.
Available at the Melbourne Natural Medicine Clinic, this test is safe and non-invasive and measures the level of minerals and toxins stored in the body. It’s perfect for people who wish to know what they might be lacking in their diet or want to take the first steps towards improving their health by gauging their body’s current state of toxicity. Hair mineral analysis extends beyond the capabilities of standard blood and urine tests as it is able to provide credible information on over 35 nutrient and toxic minerals and more than 25 important mineral ratios.

Who should have this test?

Mineral imbalances and excessive levels of toxic metals can exacerbate a variety of health conditions suffered by men and women. These can include:

  • male and female infertility
  • cardiovascular disease
  • high cholesterol
  • high blood pressure
  • migraines
  • learning difficulties and
  • hyperactivity in children

These mineral imbalances are also capable of accelerating the effects of various autoimmune diseases like Multiple Sclerosis, Lupus, Crohn’s disease and Vitiligo, while other degenerative conditions and Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease have the potential to also be affected. In short, almost anyone would benefit from a comprehensive hair mineral analysis test.
