HTMA is a safe and non-invasive test that measures the mineral content in hair. It can be used to assess nutritional deficiencies and excesses, heavy metal exposure, metabolic imbalances, and progress made with mineral supplementation or dietary changes.
Benefits of HTMA
Nutritional deficiencies and excesses: HTMA can provide information about the levels of essential minerals like iron, calcium, zinc, magnesium, and others in the body. This data can help identify possible nutrient deficiencies and excessive levels of certain minerals, which could lead to adverse health effects.
Heavy metal exposure: HTMA may detect the presence of certain heavy metals, like lead, mercury, arsenic, or cadmium, which could indicate exposure to environmental toxins.
Metabolic imbalances: HTMA can offer insights into metabolic imbalances and potential mineral imbalances that may be contributing to health issues.
Monitoring progress: For individuals undergoing mineral supplementation or dietary changes, HTMA can be used to monitor changes in mineral levels over time.
Who should get HTMA testing?
HTMA testing can be beneficial for people of all ages, but it is especially recommended for:
Children: HTMA testing can be used to assess mineral levels in children who are experiencing behavioral issues, learning difficulties, hyperactivity, or recurring illnesses.
Adults: HTMA testing can be used to assess mineral levels in adults who are experiencing health conditions that may be related to mineral imbalances, such as cardiovascular disease, high cholesterol, thyroid imbalances, high blood pressure, blood sugar imbalances, osteoporosis, or migraines.
Women who are pregnant or planning to become pregnant: HTMA testing can be used to assess mineral levels in women who are pregnant or planning to become pregnant, as mineral imbalances can affect the health of the baby.
