HTMA- Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis 

The HTMA is a non-invasive tissue test of the hair. While our blood tests show what is happening in our body at this moment in time, the hair test gives an insight into what has been happening in our body, on a cellular level, over the past three months. 

HTMA tests look for macro, micro/trace minerals as well as toxic metals that are stored in our bodies.  Minerals are vital for survival and act as spark plugs to activate vitamins. Contrastingly, toxins can inhibit this process so it is important that they are removed from our systems. 

This ingenious test, performed on a small sample of hair, gives a good indication of the following:

  • how well your thyroid and adrenals are functioning.
  • information on carbohydrate imbalance, your metabolic rate and whether you personally thrive on protein, fat or carbohydrates. 
  • mental and emotional wellbeing such as anxiety, depression and mood swings. 
  • tendencies for over 30 common health conditions even before they cause any symptoms.
  • detoxification pathways, such as liver and kidney function
  • if there are any digestive problems, such as not having enough stomach acid, 
  • immune system health

We are all exposed to toxic metals such as arsenic, aluminium, lead, mercury etc. in our immediate environment – the food we eat, the clothes we wear, the toiletries we use and the air we breathe. In order for our body to deal with this poisonous load, it will deposited into the hair and joints, away from vital organs, so it won’t cause substantial damage. If your liver or kidneys are impaired, there will be health issues as your body is not able to excrete those toxic metals. 

Overall HTMA gives you an insight into your individual health:

  • Toxic metals
  • 20 different minerals 
  • Adrenal and thyroid activity
  • Detoxification impairment
  • Blood sugar tolerance/carbohydrate tolerance 
  • Lifestyle imbalances such as stress
  • Hormone imbalance 
  • Vitality and energy levels
  • Immune system health
  • Emotional health

How it works:

You will receive a test kit with instructions (either I can drop it off or post it to you), which you will mail directly to the lab.  I will then send you a health profile questionnaire, which you will need to complete prior to our consultation. Once I receive the raw test results from the lab, we will schedule your appointment (via zoom or in person in West Cornwall). The hair test analysis result take about three weeks at the moment. After our consultation, you will receive an individualised report with nutrition and lifestyle recommendations in order to rebalance the minerals heal and gain back your health.

“I am so happy with the results. I have been trying to find the root cause of chronic issues I have been dealing with for so long. I have always wanted to try hair analysis and leapt at the opportunity when Julia came to work at Inner Space. It took 3 weeks to get the results back and have my consultation  – which came with a beautifully presented, easy to understand results pack with clear advice to remedy my particular imbalances. It is so wonderful to feel hopeful about gaining my health back. I am so pleased to welcome Julia as part of the Inner Space family, she is a real asset to our therapist services.”-  Johanna
