Hair Mineral Analysis
What is a Hair Mineral Analysis?
This is a screening test that measures the mineral content of your hair for 20 specific healthy minerals and toxic metals. According to Analytical Research Labs:
"The test reports significant mineral levels and ratios and provides pertinent information related to the patient's metabolic rate, energy levels, sugar and carbohydrate tolerance, immune system, glandular activity, autonomic balance, metabolic trends, and a dietary supplement program designed to assist in balancing body chemistry."
Hair contains minerals that are deposited from the body into the hair as it grows. A sample of hair cut close to the scalp provides information about the mineral activity in the hair that took place over the past three to four months.
The test results are printed on an easy-to-read graph and come with a thorough booklet that explains all of the results and the recommendations.
Why get a hair mineral analysis?
Get another perspective on your overall health trends.
The body tends to keep blood levels maintained in a very narrow range, so imbalances can often be difficult to detect in a typical blood test in the beginning. Many patients come in feeling frustrated because they feel symptomatic yet their blood and other medical tests show everything within normal limits. Blood levels change frequently, day-to-day, hour-by-hour, but hair levels reflect the state of the body over a 3 to 4 month timeframe.
Get more accurate supplement and lifestyle recommendations.
Stop guessing at which supplements to take based on TV commercials and family & friends' advice. The recommendations provided by ARL are specific to your body's biochemistry at the present time.
Important Disclaimer: A hair mineral analysis is NOT a substitution for a medical blood test and does NOT provide you a medical diagnosis. This is to be used for health insights but is not a replacement for your doctor's advice.
