    What is Hair Element Analysis?

    A lot of people know that minerals are good for them but fewer people recognize that some minerals can be toxic. Even the so-called good minerals like the zinc and copper can mess you up if they are present in your body in the wrong ratio or if you have a hard time excreting. A hair mineral analysis test reveals your mineral deficiencies and heavy metal toxicity. But many people don’t realize that it also provides a blueprint to increase your performance, banish brain fog, and improve energy. At NEX Wellness, our patients can undergo a hair element analysis test to help reveal and explain the causes of many health symptoms and diseases. If you are looking for more information about the hair element analysis, then you have come to the right place. In this blog, we share some information about hair element analysis. 

    Unlock human performance 

    Your physical and cognitive abilities can be optimized using hair tissue mineral analysis (HTMA). Nutrient mineral levels and their comparative relationships (ratios) determine how well your cells function and impact physical and cognitive performance. The goal is to correct body chemistry and improve cell functioning using HTMA as a guide for targeted supplementation. The problem is that when you are tired, you might use a stimulant like an energy drink. If we are too wired we might use a sedative, alcohol, or another drug to relax. We are smart enough to realize that these substances affect our biochemistry, but they instead create biochemical chaos. Misguided biochemistry balancing leads to all types of undesirable health consequences. This is why it’s so much better to balance biochemistry intelligently using hair mineral analysis.

    What can a hair element analysis reveal?

    Hair mineral analyses are screening tests only and do not diagnose disease. However, a properly interpreted hair analysis can reveal various mineral imbalances that indicate a tendency for various conditions. A hair mineral analysis provides a picture of body chemistry including:

    1. Heavy Metal Toxicity
    2. Mineral Deficiencies and Imbalances
    3. Metabolic Rate (fast or slow)
    4. Adrenal Fatigue
    5. Thyroid Function
    6. Nervous System Imbalances
    7. Protein Synthesis
    8. Inflammation
    9. Energy Levels
    10. Mental Health Issues
    11. Liver & Kidney Stress
    12. Carbohydrate Tolerance & Blood Sugar Imbalances like Diabetes and Insulin resistance

    Is the hair element analysis accurate?

    Because most doctors and health practitioners think that a hair mineral analysis is only showing simple mineral and metal levels, the accuracy, and validity of these tests are grossly underestimated and misunderstood. The key issue and debate surrounding hair testing and whether it’s accurate is really about whether the hair is washed or not. Detractors are not making this distinction. Hair mineral analysis is extremely accurate and valid as long as the hair is not washed by the ND, which washes away some minerals.
