Through mineral analysis of the hair, one is able to determine the levels of both essential and toxic minerals, i.e. – those which are normal or necessary or for vital body functions, such as calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium, iron, copper, zinc, phosphorous, etc. and those like toxic metals which are by their very nature detrimental to health and wellbeing such as lead, cadmium, mercury, arsenic, and aluminum.
As valuable as blood serum analysis is in many cases, it principally reveals what is in the blood. In contrast, hair analysis reveals not only what is in the tissues but also provides us with a record of how the body uses stores and disposes of mineral elements.
Knowing the levels and ratios of these life-giving elements in the body provides us with additional tools designed to comprehensively understand a person’s total body chemistry.
