Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis

Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis, also known as HTMA is a safe and non-invasive pathology test. 
This test involves sending off a small amount of hair from the nape of the neck for analysis. The analysis is conducted by Interclinical Laboratories in NSW.

HTMA is regarded by many naturopaths & doctors as one of the most valuable screening tools available in everyday and preventative health care. The analysis provides information in regards to levels and comparative ratios of nutrient and toxic minerals found in hair.

Minerals are essential for growth, healing, vitality and wellbeing. They provide structural support in bones and teeth, and they maintain the body's pH and water balance, nerve activity, muscle contractions, energy production and enzyme reactions.

Many health conditions are aggravated by mineral imbalances and toxic metal excesses, including;

  • cardiovascular disease,
  • high cholesterol,
  • high blood pressure,
  • migraines,
  • learning difficulties
  • hyperactivity in children

And many more.

There are many benefits of HTMA, such as;

  • Safe, scientific, non-invasive pathology test.
  • Reliable data on more than 35 nutrient and toxic minerals, and over 25 important mineral ratios.
  • Valuable health information often not revealed in standard blood and urine tests.
  • Discovery of nutrient mineral imbalances or toxic mineral excesses that may be affecting your health.

Personalised patient and doctor interpretive test reports that assess your current mineral status, highlight areas of concern and recommend dietary changes and supplements for improved health and wellbeing.

Results are usually completed in around 14 working days.
