Are you a nutritional practitioner that is looking for a comprehensive test to add to your practice? Something that gives a lot of information, is non-invasive, and affordable?
HTMA is the BEST test to use for holistic health practitioners. Here’s a quick post on why HTMA is the best!
1- It’s Non-Invasive
HTMA is one of the easiest tests to do. You just need a heaping teaspoon of hair, cut as close to the scalp as possible. Easy, peasy. No needles for blood, no complicated packaging, and no messy urine/stool samples. You would also need SO much blood to test for the same amount of vitamins and minerals that HTMA tests for, so it’s truly a much easier test to get done.
2- Minerals are ESSENTIAL for Healing
Minerals are needed for millions of enzymes as co-factors, inhibitors or even as the enzyme themselves. Enzymes are what keeps our bodies running. When we are low on minerals or if they are imbalanced, our bodies cannot physically function correctly. We look at the whole picture with HTMA- levels, ratios, and the person’s individual symptoms.
3- HTMA Shows SO much information when read correctly
A properly read HTMA can give information on gut health, detox ability, oxidation rate/metabolism, hormonal balance, and more. When you can learn how to actually read the test yourself (instead of just using the generalized printout from the lab that actually doesn’t help much), you can see how invaluable it truly is.
4- More Helpful Than Blood Work for Nutritional Status
Blood, saliva, urine, and stool samples are only able to show that exact moment in time that they were tested. They are a snapshot of what is going on, and they can change significantly within minutes or hours. A hair sample shows us about 3-4 months of time so it gives a MUCH better view on how you are using your minerals.
