Balancing Essential Nutrient Minerals

Good health begins at the cellular-level. You can improve cellular function with hTMA.

Essential minerals are required for proper growth, development and many other crucial physiological functions. But because your body cannot synthesize essential minerals (as it can vitamin D for example), they must be obtained from your diet.

Your body has an estimated 4 trillion cells, and 60-70% of those cells replace themselves every 6 months. That means roughly 15 billion cells in your body replace themselves each day — fifteen billion. Every cell contains a nucleus housing your DNA, and each strand of DNA requires approximately 45 different minerals to replicate itself correctly. These nurient minerals are essential for overall health maintenance. If your diet does not provide the key minerals required to support fundamental biological processes, your body begins to degenerate.

There are several factors contributing to the growing decline in health:

  1. Undernourishment.
  2. Toxicity. We all experience chronic low-level exposure to persistant toxicity. Example's include toxicity co-occurrence with some medical tests, therapies and drugs, environmental toxicity generated by most industrial processes, including modern agricultural practicies, even many processed foods contain toxic chemicals.
  3. Chronic stress.

Tissue Mineral Analysis (hTMA)

A hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (hTMA) is a noninvasive medical test that provides comprehensive information about key nutrient mineral levels and ratios, metabolic status, and toxicity. The hTMA lab report can be used to correct the levels and ratios of essential minerals, thus improving cellular function (e.g., the transmembrane potential). When individual cells are working properly, health improves.

Medical tests often focus on identifying the cause of a specific clinical symptom, or set of symptoms. Typically the test result will be used to determine a pharmaceutical therapy or surgical intervention. In contrast, hTMA is a multipurpose medical screen that provides comprehensive information about overall health status. Using hTMA data, a qualified clinician can make recommendations for a corrective nutritional protocol to improve general health, support safe detoxification, and help to resolve confusing or complex clinical symptoms. Lab results also identifies trends toward disease (predictive medicine).
