Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA)

Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA) stands as a non-invasive diagnostic method offering insights into the body's mineral levels and heavy metal presence, alongside key mineral ratios. Minerals, being fundamental micronutrients, underpin our overall health, operating in a complex, interdependent system where alterations in one mineral can impact others directly or indirectly. This intricate mineral relationship holds pivotal significance for overall well-being.


By analyzing hair, comprised of once metabolically active cells, HTMA offers a distinctive window into cellular activities and mineral status, difficult to access through alternative methods. This positions HTMA as a valuable asset in deciphering health conditions linked to mineral imbalances or heavy metal accumulation, thereby facilitating targeted interventions for improved health outcomes.

At Restore Hair Loss and Scalp Clinic, we recognize the complex interplay of lifestyle factors shaping your unique HTMA results. Discover a deeper understanding of your body's inner workings and embark on the journey towards optimal health with Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis.

Justien, Experiencing Calcium imbalance

Before my hair tissue mineral analysis (HTMA) at Restore Hair Loss and Scalp Clinic, I suffered from joint stiffness, digestive issues, dry skin, trouble losing weight despite a healthy diet, and fatigue. The HTMA revealed high calcium levels causing my joint stiffness and dry skin. Following dietary recommendations quickly relieved my joints, and my skin began improving within months. A slow metabolism explained my weight loss challenges. Adding digestive enzymes improved my food absorption, and I've lost nearly 5 pounds without extreme exercise or cutting carbs.

Here's how it works:

  1. Sample Collection: During your appointment, our trichologist will collect a small sample of your hair. Don't worry, it's painless and only takes a few minutes.

  2. Laboratory Analysis: The hair sample is then sent to a specialized laboratory for analysis. Here, advanced techniques are used to measure the levels of various minerals present in your hair.

  3. Interpretation: Once the analysis is complete, our trichologist will interpret the results for you. They'll explain what the levels and ratios mean in terms of your hair and scalp health.

  4. Personalized Recommendations: Based on the findings from your HTMA, our trichologist will develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. This may include dietary changes, supplementation, or other therapies aimed at restoring balance to your body and promoting healthy hair growth.

Benefits of HTMA: Empowering You to Take Control

From detecting nutrient deficiencies to pinpointing heavy metal toxicity, HTMA offers a myriad of benefits:

  1. Non-invasive Collection: Hair specimens can be collected swiftly and easily compared to blood, urine, or other tissues, using a non-invasive method.

  2. Cost-Effectiveness: Hair analysis is more cost-effective than mineral testing through alternative means.

  3. Stability of Trace Elements: Unlike blood, hair is less influenced by rapid fluctuations in trace element levels due to homeostatic mechanisms.

  4. Long-term Insights: Long-term deviations in mineral retention or losses are more readily identifiable in hair compared to blood.

  5. Metabolic Activity Indicator: Hair testing provides valuable insights into your level of metabolic activity.

  6. Higher Concentrations: Concentrations of most elements in hair are significantly higher than in blood and other tissues.

  7. Historical Data: Hair serves as a record of both past and present trace element levels, reflecting biological activity.

  8. Dual Source Information: Hair reveals substances entering from the blood serum as well as external sources.

  9. Toxic Metal Assessment: Hair is invaluable for assessing toxic metal levels in the body.

  10. Mineral Imbalance Detection: Hair testing measures mineral imbalances that can directly impact related vitamin activity, providing comprehensive insights into overall health.

Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA) can reveal a wealth of information about an individual's health status:

  1. Mineral Levels: HTMA provides detailed insights into the levels of essential minerals such as calcium, magnesium, zinc, and potassium present in the body.

  2. Toxic Metal Exposure: HTMA can detect the presence of toxic heavy metals like lead, mercury, arsenic, and cadmium, which may accumulate in the body due to environmental exposure or other factors.

  3. Mineral Imbalances: HTMA can identify imbalances in mineral levels, such as deficiencies or excesses, which can have significant impacts on overall health and well-being.

  4. Metabolic Activity: HTMA can provide information about the body's metabolic processes and overall metabolic health.

  5. Stress Response: HTMA can indicate how the body is responding to stressors, including both physical and emotional stress.

  6. Detoxification Capacity: HTMA can assess the body's ability to detoxify and eliminate harmful substances, such as heavy metals, through its mineral patterns.

  7. Nutritional Status: HTMA can offer insights into nutritional deficiencies or excesses, helping to guide dietary and supplementation recommendations.

  8. Health Trends: HTMA results can track changes in mineral levels over time, providing valuable information about health trends and the effectiveness of interventions.
