Toxic Hair Elements Testing

Hair Elements analysis provides information regarding recent and ongoing exposure to potentially toxic metals, especially methylmercury and arsenic, and time-averaged status of specific nutrient elements. This noninvasive screening test requires only .25 grams of hair.

This test is useful for:

  • Toxic Element Exposure
  • Excessive Fish Consumption
  • Alopecia
  • Depression
  • Fatigue
  • Malabsorption
  • Hypertension
  • Impaired Glucose Tolerance
  • Kidney Function
  • Parkinson's-like Symptoms

A small amount of hair is collected from clean, washed hair. Hair must be free from hair dyes (3 months) and be washed with baby shampoo or all natural shampoo for 3 weeks prior to collection.
