Why Should You Consider A Hair Mineral Analysis? - Download the Submittal Form

  1. Are you concerned about your health & nutritional status?
  2. Is your health compromised?
  3. Have you tried multiple supplement programs with little or no improvements?
  4. Do you want to take the guesswork out of your nutritional program?

If you answered "yes" to any of the above questions, then it is time to consider doing a hair mineral analysis.

I. Tissue mineral analysis is a test that measures the mineral content of the hair. Mineral content of the hair accurately reflects the mineral content of the body's tissue. If a mineral deficiency or excess exists in the hair profile it usually indicates a mineral deficiency or excess within the body.

II. Minerals are essential in numerous functions for all phases of metabolism.

III. Hair is used as one of the tissues of choice by the Environmental Protection Agency in determining toxic metal exposure. In 1980, a report from the EPA stated that hair can be effectively used for biological monitoring of the highest priority toxic metals. This report confirmed the findings of other studies in the U.S. and abroad, which concluded that hair may be a more appropriate tissue than blood or urine for studying exposures to some trace minerals.

IV. What causes mineral imbalances or deficiencies? Various mineral imbalances, as revealed by hair analysis can indicate metabolic dysfunctions before any symptoms occur. (Stress, Medications, Pollution, Food, or Supplements).

V. Hair analysis is an invaluable screening tool to determine the correct program of diet and supplementation for each individual's specific needs. Never before has there been available such an accurate, scientifically valid guide to metabolic function and balance.

How to send in a hair sample:

Using scissors, cut 1 tablespoon of hair from the back and top of head (see above diagram). The length of the hair should not exceed 2 inches of the newest hair growth (closest to the scalp). The amount of hair necessary for an accurate analysis is approximately one tablespoon.

Put the sample in an envelope or plastic bag labeled with the person's name. Fill out the submittal form, and then send the submittal form, hair sample, and payment to Uckele Health & Nutrition. Please allow up to 4 weeks for results to be processed. The results will include a graph, recommendation/summary page, and a phone consultation with a nutritionist explaining the results.
