Heavy Metal Testing

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. A HTMA reveals a unique metabolic world of 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.
