Why use Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA) instead of Bloodwork?
HTMA has been used as a health screening tool since 1965 as it is an extremely non invasive test to measure the levels of minerals in the body. While good results and indicators for health can be obtained from blood work, many mineral markers can be insignificant. The blood is a transport medium and has limitations as a result of this fact. Blood remains outside of the cells and tissues in a healthy body. It is inside the cells and tissues that the body's energy is produced. Mineral metabolism plays a vital role in this process. Minerals involved in cellular production in the blood may appear to be normal in the blood, but minerals may actually be significantly lower in the body's cells and tissues, where it is needed to create energy. As a results HTMA is a much more accurate representation of the body's mineral stores. In addition to this, HTMA can help to determine the amounts of harmful heavy metals in the body including arsenic, mercury, aluminium, cadmium, lead and uranium.
