Balancing Essential Nutrient Minerals

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

Essential minerals are required by your body for proper growth, development and many other crucial physiological functions. Because you cannot synthesize essential minerals (like you synthesize 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. Chronic exposure to persistant toxicity (even at low levels). Including medical therapy toxicity, the toxicity from industrial agriculture (e.g., antibiotics) and even the processed foods that we consume.
  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).
