Extensive research has established that scalp hair element levels are related to human systemic levels.
The strength of this relationship varies for specific elements, and many researchers consider hair as the tissue of choice for toxic and several nutrient elements.
Unlike blood, hair element levels are not regulated by
homeostatic mechanisms. Thus, deviations in hair element levels often appear prior to overt symptoms, and
hair analysis can thereby be a valuable preliminary tool for predicting the development of physiological abnormalities.
The importance of a hair analysis is essential for the determination of heavy metals as well as mineral deficiencies.
The benefits are vital in evaluating overall health. This information is of extreme importance in the development of a personal health profile.
