HTMA Hair Analysis from Analytical Research Labs
Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA) is a tissue biopsy test also known by many as "hair analysis" or "hair mineral analysis". It offers an overview of an individual's biochemistry and establishes how well the mineral levels are balanced in their body. Results of each test help make conclusions about the person's body metabolic rate, carbohydrate tolerance, sugar tolerance, glandular and immune functions, and levels of stress.
During the tests carried out by Analytical Research Labs staff, the hair samples are not washed prior to the procedure to preserve water-soluble elements and thus ensure the highest accuracy of results. Those results, in turn, are utilized in order to guide a program of nutritional balancing that helps in the detoxification of the body and restoration of preferred minerals.
Clients who order the initial test (Profile 2) and the retest (Profile 4) receive a complete laboratory report book and comprehensive graph that are both very informative and can be of great help to those who have MUS (Medically Unexplained Symptoms).
