Hair Analysis

This test is useful for:

  • Toxic Element Exposure
  • Excessive Fish Consumption
  • Alopecia
  • Depression
  • Fatigue
  • Malabsorption
  • Hypertension
  • Impaired Glucose Tolerance
  • Kidney Function
  • Parkinson’s-like Symptoms
  • Sexual Impotence or Decreased Testosterone Production
  • Vision Problems

Nutrient elements including magnesium, chromium, zinc, copper and selenium are obligatory co-factors for hundreds of important enzymes and also are essential for the normal functions of vitamins. The levels of these elements in hair are correlated with levels in organs and other tissues.

Toxic elements may be 200 to 300 times more highly concentrated in hair than in blood or urine. Therefore, hair is the tissue of choice for detection of recent exposure to elements such as arsenic, aluminum, cadmium, lead, antimony and mercury. The CDC acknowledges the value of hair mercury levels as a maternal and infant marker for exposure to neurotoxic methylmercury from fish.
