A Powerful Diagnostic Tool that can help us restore your Body’s Minerals and Reduce Heavy Metals.
WHAT IS HAIR ANALYSIS TESTING?
Hair analysis testing plays an important role in identifying the levels of specific minerals and heavy metals within our bodies, showing us if we have an excess or deficiency of these substances. Our hair acts as a sponge, absorbing minerals and heavy metals from the environment around us, including the food we eat and the air we breathe. By analyzing a small sample of hair, medical professionals can determine whether our bodies possess adequate or inadequate amounts of certain minerals and heavy metals.
Excessive presence of heavy metals such as lead or mercury can be harmful to our health – not only creating significant risks to our overall health, but also adversely affecting vital organs like the brain and kidneys. On the other hand, insufficient levels of essential minerals like iron or zinc can also create health problems.
Hair analysis testing allows us to identify whether adjustments to our diet or lifestyle are necessary to restore a proper balance of minerals and heavy metals in our bodies. By doing so, we can stay healthy and feel our best.
HOW DOES THE HAIR ANALYSIS TESTING WORK?
A small sample of hair will be needed, typically 1 in to 1.5 inches long. The sample is then placed in a sealed, plastic bag and sent to the laboratory for testing.
WHAT SPECIFICALLY CAN HAIR ANALYSIS TESTING BE USED FOR?
Hair analysis testing can give us insights into:
- Whether your body has an excessive amount of heavy metals
- Whether your body has an insufficient amount of a particular mineral
- Whether you may be experiencing a lack of energy due to a mineral deficiency
- Whether you may be experiencing health issues due to toxicity of heavy metals
IS HAIR ANALYSIS TESTING REPUTABLE?
Hair analysis testing leverages the data and information that is provided by your hair follicle to give us with a snapshot of your body’s current state. At Auburn Chiropractic Health Clinic, we believe every patient deserves an individualized treatment and hair analysis testing is a powerful tool to help us customize your journey back to great health.
WHY SHOULD I CONSIDER HAIR ANALYSIS TESTING?
Common symptoms, such as weakness or fatigue, can be signals from your body telling us that we are iron deficient. On the other hand, high blood pressure can be a manifestation of too much sodium in your diet.
Hair analysis testing is a simple, yet powerful diagnostic tool that can provide us with information to build out a personalized health plan for you, including an individualized nutrition plan and assessment of vitamin/mineral supplements needed.
An individualized nutrition plan allows a person to achieve a variety of health goals, such as:
- maintaining a healthy weight
- managing chronic conditions, like diabetes or high blood pressure
- improving athletic performance
- feeling better overall
By providing the right balance of nutrients, an individual nutrition plan can help people feel more energized, improve their mood, and reduce their risk of chronic diseases.
