TMA (Tissue Mineral Analysis)

As a C.N.C. (Certified Nutritional Consultant), I offer Tissue mineral analysis through Trace Elements Inc.      TMA is also known as hair analysis which uses the hair to determine mineral stores.   This offers a longer term look at mineral stores versus serum testing which shows mineral status with the last 24 hours.

Minerals such as Calcium, Magnesium, Zinc are tested and they will type you for your endocrine status (thyroid, adrenal and metabolic type (fast or slow)).  Testing is non-invasive and reasonably priced (a full report is $100), turnaround time is about 10 days.

I cannot facilitate tests in New York or Ohio.  Please leave a comment if interested and I can email you the information.

Here is an article written by Dr. David Watts in response to Stephen Barrett's (quackwatch) criticism of hair analysis.   Click here
