Hair Mineral Analysis

Minerals are the spark plugs of Life


Minerals are needed for millions of enzymes as co-factors, facilitators, inhibitors and as part of the enzymes themselves. As a result, minerals have a great deal to do with the health of our bodies.

Hair tissue mineral analysis or HTMA is a soft tissue mineral biopsy that uses hair as the sampling tissue, measuring the levels of 20 or more minerals in the hair. It is a measure of the radiance of the body, and of the brain, in particular. The test's ability to assess and predict physical and psychological states of the body is quite unlike blood testing and every other method of testing the body.

Dr. Paul Eck was a pioneer in this area, and began researching the use of the test in the mid-1970s.  Dr. Lawrence Wilson started working with him in 1982, and continued until his passing in 1996.  Since then, Dr. Wilson has continued and expanded on his basic ideas about how to interpret a hair mineral test, and how to correct imbalances revealed on the test.

A hair mineral analysis test is the starting point and basis for a nutritional balancing program designed to balance, rebuild and detoxify your body. To obtain your personal hair test, click on the link below.

Nutritional balancing is a means of reducing stress and balancing, strengthening and restoring body chemistry.  When this is done, many health conditions improve.  Nutritional balancing is not a substitute for regular medical care.  It is not a means of diagnosis, treatment, prescription or cure for any disease or condition, mental or physical.
