FAQs

Who is hair testing best for?

  • Hair testing is helpful for anyone on their healing journey since minerals fuel all reactions in the body. It is especially helpful for those struggling with hormone imbalances, suspected or diagnosed hypothyroidism, PCOS, endometriosis, and those transitioning off of hormonal birth control or the copper IUD. 

Can I complete a hair mineral test if I am taking hormonal birth control. 

  • Yes, you can still complete a hair mineral test if on birth control.

Can I complete a hair mineral test if I am pregnant or breastfeeding?

  • Yes, you can still complete a hair mineral test if pregnant or breastfeeding. You will want to pay attention to supplement recommendations and take into consideration what is and is not safe for pregnancy and breastfeeding.  

Do I have to complete the hair test at a certain time in my cycle?

  • No, you can complete your hair test at any time. It does not have to be completed at a specific time in your cycle since it is showing us the last 3 months of information. 

What is hair mineral testing?

  • A hair tissue mineral analysis (HTMA) is used to measure the mineral content of the hair.  It is easy and painless.  Hair mineral testing requires one hair sample that weighs about 100mg, which is about one heaping tsp of hair (depending on your hair).  You take the sample from the middle-lower part of your head (ideally), which is nice because it is easy to cover.  You then cut the hair sample so that it is only 1.5" long. 
  • This sample shows the body's mineral status for the last 90 days, which is a massive draw for me for using this with clients.  The reason is most tests are only looking at a moment in time or a span of about a day. 
  • The other important point about hair mineral testing is that it is looking at minerals inside the cell. In comparison, blood tests look at nutrients outside of the cell.  It helps get a look inside the cell because it tells us what nutrients you are using a lot of if you're moving nutrients out of the cell that can be harmful (like calcium), and which nutrients you are deficient in.  It also can detect heavy metal toxicity.  The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) concluded that using human hair testing may be more appropriate than blood or urine samples for evaluating trace minerals.

Can I get lab testing if I live outside of the US?

  • Yes, as long as you do not live in any of the following countries:
    • Scandinavian countries which includes Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark, and Iceland, United Kingdom, Poland, Brazil, Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Spain, Korea, China, Croatia, El Salvador, Kuwait (ALL MIDDLE EAST COUNTRIES), UAE, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Taiwan, South Africa, Guatemala, India, Thailand, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Mexico, Pakistan, Netherlands
  • If you live in one of those countries and you'd like to order hair mineral testing, please email [email protected] to find a testing facility near you.
