Can your hair say something about your environment? Yes, it can! Hair is the second most metabolically active tissue in the body. That’s why hair can reveal the toxic elements that are prevalent in your environment. A hair analysis is an excellent guide to finding out if you have any heavy metal toxicities or some environment toxicities because the information is in your hair!
I like the hair analysis for several reasons. One reason is that it’s not invasive and you do not have to have blood drawn. A blood test shows what’s happening on the outside of a cell and the waste material that is being discarded. However, the hair analysis test shows what’s being stored inside the body because your hair tissue is affected by blood, perspiration, environment, hormones, genetics and enzymes. Another reason I like the hair analysis test is that it is easy and you can do it at home. Just order a test kit, clip one tablespoon of hair close to the scalp and mail it off! Also, a hair analysis tests for over 20 toxic metals like aluminum, arsenic, copper, lead. Metal toxicities can vastly affect your health causing a range of problems from your energy levels, mental clarity, and daily performances.
Metal toxicities are everywhere in our environment- seriously. For example, if you enjoy eating fish, you are already being exposed to mercury! Mercury toxicity is associated with several health issues such as depression, fatigue, insomnia, thyroid dysfunction, adrenal dysfunction, kidney damage, memory loss and much more. If you suspect that you may have a heavy metal toxicity or are exposed to heavy metals, you can order one of our hair analysis test kits. I would suggest the Toxic Elements Test. Our test kits are sent out quickly, and you will receive your results within 21 days of your sample being received.
