So, you're interested in supporting your body holistically. An HTMA test is a great way to start. Read about it below!

HTMA stands for Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis. HTMA is a hair sample that provides data on mineral levels, certain patterns in our bodies, and helps us understand our internal environment. It is another piece to the health puzzle and valuable way to help us understand your unique needs.

HTMA shows us how and where the body's energy system is out of balance. I help you to understand how to use nutrition and diet to correct it. Once the body's energy and stamina are restored, it can heal other problems on its own.

What is HTMA?

  • A soft tissue mineral sample that provides a reading of the mineral deposition in the cells and interstitial spaces of the hair over a 2-3 month period.

  • Representative of the minerals and heavy metals in the hair, but since hair is a tissue, the information can be inferred for the rest of the body.

Simply put, HTMA is a non-invasive and cost effective test that can give us lots of information about your health. 

What can HTMA tell us?

  • Your metabolic rate

  • Heavy metal status 

  • Mineral imbalances 

  • What stage of stress you're in 

  • Digestive tendencies

  • Adrenal and thyroid patterns 

  • Blood sugar imbalances 

  • Carbohydrate tolerance 

  • Personality tendencies

HTMA can give us accurate insight about your symptoms and how they are connected at a cellular level. 

Why are minerals important?

Minerals help our body function properly. They play an important role in digestive health, hormonal health, sleep, and skin. 

Every cell requires minerals to preform very vital functions like making energy, hormones, and taking in nutrients. 

 

Unfortunately, mineral deficiencies are very common. Many deficiencies can be caused by: 

  • Stress (a big one)

  • Heavy Metals 

  • Pesticides

  • Inflammation 

 

Mineral deficiencies can lead to your annoying symptoms: cramps, PMS, bloating, restless sleep, you name it. 

 

Cells are the basic building blocks of our bodies. You can bet that if you have healthy and hydrated cells, your body will have a much better chance at functioning better. 

 

Optimizing and balancing mineral intake can improve consistent energy and digestion, a recipe for good health. 

 

But what do YOU need? Everyones body is different. An HTMA test will give you a clear understanding on where we start.
