Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA) | Dr. Cobi

Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA)

You are here

The Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis Test reveals 29 minerals and their ratios including calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium, copper, zinc, phosphorus, iron, manganese, chromium, boron, and molybdenum, to name a few as well as several toxic metals including aluminum, lead, cadmium, mercury, arsenic, and uranium.


Minerals are referred to as the “spark plugs” for life. They influence nearly every part of the body and minerals interact not only with each other but also with vitamins, proteins, carbohydrates and fats. The ratios of the minerals as well as the toxic elements expose a true picture of what is going on deep within the body. Chronic health issues that are resistant to healing are often linked to hidden mineral imbalances and trauma trapped deep within the tissues of the body.
