Do you ever wonder if you are getting the right nutrients? We all aim to eat our 5 a day, stick to wholegrains and eat a healthy amount of oily fish and lean meats. But making sure you have the right level of zinc, calcium, selenium, potassium, chromium, niacin, thiamine… the list goes on, is almost impossible.
There is a way to show us how well our body is functioning on an intracellular level without requiring invasive medical tests - through testing our hair. Your hair can actually reveal a lot about your inner balance and well-being.
Our mineral hair analysis service offers a simple way of checking your body’s mineral levels and toxins from a simple analysis of a hair sample. It is a clinically proven laboratory test, using a sample of hair sent to the Mineral Check laboratory.
Hair Analysis can help show up any hidden deficiencies before they cause problems. The results provide information that means a simple tweak in your diet or supplement regime can make a big difference to your overall well-being.
A hair analysis test will also show whether you have accumulated any toxic metals, for example mercury, lead or aluminium.
Essential Minerals measured: Calcium, Magnesium, Sodium, Potassium, Copper, Zinc, Phosphorus, Iron, Manganese, Chromium, Selenium, Boron, Cobalt, Molybdenum and Sulphur.
Toxic Heavy Metals measured: Antimony, Uranium, Arsenic, Beryllium, Mercury, Cadmium, Lead, Aluminium (we wanted to mention that it has recently been suggested that inorganic mercury such as that found in amalgam fillings may not be detected, however there are various views on this. In any case, an inorganic mercury toxicity is often detected indirectly through the retention and depletion of other minerals.)
Other Minerals measured: Germanium, Barium, Bismuth, Rubidium, Lithium, Nickel, Platinum, Thallium, Vanadium, Strontium, Titanium, Tin, Tungsten and Zirconium.
Measuring the mineral content of your hair gives you a wealth of information. Results also show ratios between the antagonistic minerals and toxic elements, your metabolic rate and gives an indication on the status of your adrenal and thyroid activity and disease tendencies.
A hair test gives you a unique perspective on your health that would otherwise be hidden and it offers incredible value for money when you consider the amount sometimes spent on supplements in the long term that may not even be needed, or even doing some harm. It takes the guess-work away and helps you to focus on what is really needed.
The results come in the form of several graphs and include a report from the laboratory and a comprehensive personalised report (approx 15-20 pages) by our Nutritional Therapist with a simplified explanation of the lab report and supporting nutritional, supplement, detox and lifestyle advice.
Included with the Hair Test Report is a coupon code for 10% off everything in the Detox and Natural Health sections, exclusively for people who have had a hair test (excluding another hair test), which can be used up to 3 times per customer. This is to assist you in any purchases for supplements you may need.
HOW IT WORKS:
Upon purchase you will be sent instructions, an envelope with a partially pre-filled form, a small weighing scales for your sample, a form with additional information required by our Nutritional Therapist, a small grip-seal for a single hair strand (for use with remote testing) and a stamped addressed envelope* to send your test back to us. The results are returned to us by post and we will then forward them to you by post once our nutritional therapist has compiled and written her report.
*please note the stamped addressed envelope will be sent with a First Class stamp attached. This service is available to UK only.
The entire process will take 2-3 weeks, post dependent.
OPTIONAL IN-PERSON FOLLOW-UP CONSULTATION:
A full in-person consultation is also now available which includes kinesiology, with Danielle, our Nutritional Therapist who compiles the hair test reports. She will go through your results with you, answer any questions you may have and use kinesiology muscle testing to test different products on you to assess which will better suit your needs and find the correct dosage. She will also be able to assess your body's energetic needs, test for other common complaints such as candida, food sensitivities and parasites, and assess whether any complimentary herbs, supplements or therapies may be needed.
This will be an additional £40 which is payable on the consultation day (in cash). If you would like to book this option, you can still proceed with an online order of a hair test, but please inform us that you would like to book a consultation in the appropriate section on the form when sending your test back. Danielle will then contact you when she receives your results from the lab to arrange your appointment.
If time allows, she will forward your test results by email for you to peruse in advance of your appointment. The report will have some blanks in it for filling in at your consultation.
Using kinesiology methods or dowsing on a single strand of your hair if you provide it, Danielle will remotely test for more personalised information including specific dosages, potential sensitivities/intolerances and particular supplements. This enables her to tweak the report further by tuning in to your body's needs and intuitively and energetically assess correct dosages of any supplements recommended. This service is included in the price. If you do not want the energetic testing (due to personal or religious beliefs) then there is an option on the information form you are sent to make this known to her. She will then write your report by only assessing your levels and information given to her as she has previously done!
Price Increase: Due to an increased demand for the hair tests, and due to the increased time our nutritional therapist is spending on each report, we have had to increase the prices. However, for added value Danielle is happy to include the remote testing (explained above) in this price. We believe the price is still very competitive to many similar services available especially for the personalised information you will receive (many other companies offering hair mineral tests only forward the lab reports and do not compile their own report).
