Hair 600 Compatibilty Analysis and Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA)
Hair 600 Compatibility Analysis
Already know that some foods, drinks, or even household cleaning products make you feel bad, or can't put your finger on what it is? The Hair 600 Compatibilty Analysis looks at over 600 everyday items.
We know that no 2 people are exactly biochemically and genetically alike, even identical twins, therefore not all foods and drinks are compatible for everyone. Health conditions can also impact our digestion and affect our overall health.
Elimination and Rotation diets are subjective and can often confuse people, and in my experience, people lose motivation trying to work out what exact items are the problem. So I am now using a hair (or saliva) test that checks for the compatibility of over 600 foods, drinks, and household items. This is not an allergy test. I can refer for these tests as well if allergy/allergies are suspected.
The hair sample required is small (about 1.5cm) from any part of the body. Coloured hair does not impact the analysis. It takes about 1-2 weeks to get results. I get you back and we review and discuss the results. Dietary advice is provided. Focus on what is compatible and can be eaten, not what is incompatible.
A mother and Baby analysis is also available looking at both mother's items and a list of common baby items. Saliva is used for the babies sample.
A repeat test is recommended (though not compulsory) at 6months after avoidance of incompatible foods, drinks, and items to review progress.
Cost : $250
Mother and Baby : $260
Repeat test : $185
Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA)
What is Hair Tissue Analysis?
Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis is an analytical test that measures the mineral composition of hair. It is regarded by many Naturopaths, Integrative Doctors and Nutritionists as one of the most valuable screening tools available in everyday and preventative health care.
HTMA provides reliable clinical data on over 35 nutrient and toxic minerals, and over 26 significant mineral ratios.
Why test for minerals?
Minerals are essential for growth, healing, vitality and wellbeing. They provide structural support in bones and teeth, and they maintain the bodies acid-base balance, water balance, nerve conduction, muscle contractions and enzyme functions. Minerals also participate in almost every metabolic process in the body - they are the true 'spark-plugs' of life.
Idealy we should get all the minerals we need from a balanced diet. Unfortunately this is rarely possible in today's world. Modern farming techniques, fertilisers and depleted soils reduce the mineral content of foods. Environmental toxins, chemical food additives and stressful lifestyles also have a detrimental effect on our nutritional status. Consequently, we need to test and monitor our nutritional needs more than ever.
Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis is a non-intrusive health screening tool for measuring your body's mineral status. This data can highlight potential health problems and help you to treat them through a nutritional program designed to meet your individual health needs.
