WHAT IS A TISSUE MINERAL ANALYSIS?
Trace Mineral Analysis is a test which measures the mineral content of your hair. Mineral content of the hair reflects the mineral content of the body’s tissues. If a mineral deficiency or excess exists in the hair it usually indicated a mineral deficiency or excess within the body, or bio-unavailability.
Examples: If your hair reveals an elevated calcium level two or three times normal, then your calcium level within the body may be elevated also. If this is the case, a strong tendency exist for arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries due to calcium placques).
If your calcium level is low, then a tendency exists toward osteoporosis (demineralization of bone), increased tendency to bone fractures, dental caries, periodontal disease, muscle cramps, etc.
Various mineral imbalances, as revealed by hair analysis frequently lead to metabolic dysfunctions before any symptoms become manifest.
