Your metabolic profile
based on hair analysis

Hair Mineral Analysis

At Biomed Natural Medicine Clinic, we provide tests for hair analysis. Hair Mineral Analysis is a screening test to measure the levels of up to 60 essential minerals and toxic metals. With correct testing and interpretation, one can construct a comprehensive metabolic profile of the human body.

Offering a hair analysis test near you, we can create a tailored guideline for you to improve your health, increase your energy levels and ensure that your body utilizes its resources correctly. Our goal is to help you achieve a lean and healthy figure and a new lease on life.

Benefits of the hair mineral analysis

Hair is an excellent biopsy material. It is easy to sample, easily preserved and transported, representative of a soft tissue of the body and it is a storage and eliminative tissue. As hair grows, it forms a permanent record of the body’s nutritional deficiencies or excesses.

This information, along with dietary and nutritional evaluations, will provide the basis for a nutritional balancing program to establish and maintain optimal levels of wellness. By correcting tissue mineral levels and ratios with proper diet, supplementary nutrients and lifestyle modifications, many physical and behavioral health conditions can be prevented or reversed. The first step in achieving optimal health lies in having a hair analysis test.

Minerals screened include electrolytes – calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium and phosphorus and trace minerals – copper, manganese, chromium, selenium, iron, molybdenum, lithium, cobalt and zinc.

What to expect from our hair analysis test

You can expect insight into your own metabolic profile, revealing the secrets of your body. Not all bodies are the same — we each have our own unique microbiome which determines our state of physical health, our ability to process certain foods and our tendency towards certain sensitivities.

Our microbiome also plays a significant role in how we feel, since the gut-brain connection has become more and more apparent, the link between mental health, behavioral difficulties and the makeup of our inner bacteria, has become obvious and it gives way to new treatment protocols for depression, anxiety and even conditions such as ADHD. It can all begin with a hair analysis test near you.

You can expect to get a great insight into the conditions you’ve been battling with – especially with regards to weight loss, appetite management and comorbid conditions like anxiety, depression and insomnia. You can consult with our nutritionist to tailor you a customized weight loss program.
Once you have completed a hair analysis test near you, we can use the results to determine the best way forward. This means tailoring the best treatment protocols based on your unique test results — which drugs might prove effective, which might trigger other conditions and which your body will resist altogether. Having this clarity enables us to provide our patients with a course of action that actually works.

It means there is no trial-and-error phase, cutting out the expensive and frustrating elements that cause people to want to give up on getting better. These types of plans often only mask the symptoms, failing to get to the root cause of an issue.

We have discovered that oftentimes, a number of symptoms originate from one single deficiency or imbalance in the body. This means you can change the discomfort of more than one symptom by discovering and remedying that imbalance, thereby eliminating the need for ongoing medication and/or unwanted side effects.

We are here to give you real results, with proven methods and a way to bring about positive change in our patients’ overall health and well being. Our hair analysis is safe, pain-free and convenient.

Elevated readings can have different meanings, depending upon:

Symptoms of the patient's various diseases
Increased concentration of a particular mineral
Whether a specific treatment, regimen or diet is being followed
Relationships to other elemental readings
Toxic metal screening includes lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic, nickel and aluminum.

A very high reading may represent a toxic amount of the mineral in the hair and/or in the body tissues in general. In the case of a toxic metal, any deposition or accumulation in the hair indicates some degree of toxicity.

High levels of toxic metals inhibit the body’s ability to process and assimilate specific nutritional elements that are essential to good health. They also have a proven link to many types of diseases.

Research shows that trace minerals and metals are accumulated at concentrations that are 10-50 % higher in hair.

  • Blood and urine tests give an instantaneous reading that may be affected by many factors. Urine screening is the most effective tool in measuring the progress of detoxification/chelation treatments.
  • Hair analysis gives a long term reading that is unaffected by recent meals, activities such as exercise or emotional states.
  • Toxic metals rarely remain in the blood or urine for long, but often deposit into the hair where they can be measured over a three-month period.
