Why HTMA – Hair Tissue Mineral Assessment?

HTMA – Hair Tissue Mineral Assessment Test is the most intelligent way to evaluate what is happening with your mineral system, then provides the most accurate roadmap for healing.

What Hair Tissue Mineral Assessment can tell us:

  1. Your metabolism or oxidation rate to help you get closer to total nutritional balance.
  2. Where your thyroid health is at your cell level or if the process is functioning as it should be.
  3. By analyzing Na/Mg ratio we can see if there is a severe exhaustion situation or if the adrenals aren’t working well enough. In other words, we can determine if you have adrenal hypofunction or adrenal burnout
  4. Your Sodium to Potassium ratio (Na/K) – Most important Ratio. It is your indicator of your life energy, cell membrane health or permeability, gut motility, and inflammation. It is also linked to liver, kidneys, brain, heart, and fertility.
  5. Where your heavy metal toxicity load is at so you can eliminate the ones that are “stuck” and causing symptoms. We can find the sources to those that have accumulated.
  6. What dietary changes need to be made to restore balance and detoxify pathways.
  7. Your cellular sugar level stored up in your body and if you may be trending towards Metabolic Dysfunction of Type 2 diabetes.
  8. Specific Nutrient deficiencies that are contributing toward symptoms. These Significant Mineral Levels and ratios can indicate internal stress, allergies, bone and teeth weakness, heart rhythm issues, energy output, adrenal and thyroid hormones, cholesterol indicators, sugar regulation, and cell oxygenation.
  9. What supplements are correct for your unique needs to eliminate guesswork and save you money.

Knowing what is happening on the cellular level, you can create the healing path based on scientific approach.

HTMA is our number one test we implement in our practice. Amount of information it provides is superior to any other tests out there. But it is not the only test I use. Every patient is unique and might require more based on a personal history.

I hope you find this interesting.
