A Hair Mineral Analysis (HMA) is a tool that can give you an insight into your body at the cellular level and assesses nutritional and metabolic (oxidative) status.
Both mineral nutrient and toxic metal levels have been proven to have a significant impact on health. Taking a test could help to determine whether imbalances of minerals or toxic metals may be contributing to your health issues.
Taking a hair mineral test is easy. You order a test kit from me and then send back a small hair sample along with a completed short symptom questionnaire. I then arrange for it to be analysed by a specialist laboratory (ARL) in the US and the results are sent to you when available.
Please note: you should not take the test for six weeks after having your hair dyed, bleached or permed.
NB: Tests are available in UK only.

3. The Benefit in Determining your Oxidative Types
Minerals are essential for many bodily functions. For example:
There are many reasons and some of the more common include:
Many eminent doctors and nutritionists in the United States have discovered that some people burn food at a more rapid rate than normal to release energy from food, and others at a slower rate. Knowing a person’s oxidation rate may help ascertain which foods are beneficial to help restore balance. Using this information ARL determine your oxidative type based on your mineral levels.
Eating the wrong foods for your oxidative type may impair health and deplete energy in the cells.
Eating the right foods, on the other hand, may help you optimise your vitality and health.
Taking the test is easy, it simply involves cutting a small amount of hair from around the nape of the neck, completing a short symptom questionnaire and mailing it (in the pre-paid envelope) back to me for forwarding to ARL’s laboratory in the USA for analysis.
The costs of the tests are:
1. You should not take the test for six weeks after having your hair dyed, bleached or permed.
2. This test is to identify mineral imbalances not to diagnose or treat health disorders or problems.
As part of the HMA 2, ARL will include a computer generated supplement programme in the report. Please note that this is purely based on the algorithms generated by the computer during the analysis of your hair sample.
The supplements do not in any way take in account your past or current health problems or any medication or other supplements you may be taking.
You therefore need to have a personal full face to face consultation with a BANT registered Nutritional Therapist who is familiar with hair mineral testing and take the test result with you to the consultation to get advice on the supplement programme.
It is not advisable and inappropriate to take any of the supplements listed in the report without doing this.
