Elemental Hair Analysis is a modern diagnostic method that allows assessment of the nutritional status of the body based on 29 elements in the hair.

In the 1990s, diagnostics of trace elements in hair become a popular method of assessing the nutrition status of the organism. Basing on scientific knowledge and experience gathered over the years. The Laboratory operates based on European quality standards, we aim to develop and constantly search for new solutions and partners. Our main goal is to popularize knowledge about proper nutrition and a healthy lifestyle.

Elemental Hair Analysis - Health program assesses the nutrition status of the organism basing on the quantity and ratio of elements in your hair.

This modern diagnostic method tests the level of the most important elements in the human body – 24 bio-elements and 5 toxic elements. Hair reflects the biochemical status of your organism. Unlike in blood tests, it can be precisely determined for the period of a few weeks, not just a few hours as is shown in blood.

What elements do we check?

Elemental Hair Analysis tests the level of the most important elements in the human body – 24 bio-elements and 5 toxic elements.

We mark 29 bio-elements:

24 micro-elements: calcium, sodium, potassium, phosphorus, zinc, magnesium, iron, copper, molybdenum, cobalt, chromium, lithium, strontium, nickel, manganese, selenium, vanadium, boron, bar, sulfur, silver, silicon, iodine, tin, and 5 toxic elements: arsenic, mercury, aluminum, cadmium, lead.

What are the benefits of elemental hair analysis?

A diet that lacks sufficient amounts of vitamins and micro-elements, stress, no physical exercise, fast life – all these influences the balance of elements in our organisms. In the long run, deficiencies or surpluses of elements lead to metabolic disorders, which in turn may contribute to chronic diseases. Such tendencies may be prevented with the use of a proper diet and supplementation of vitamins and minerals. You need to learn in detail about the needs of your organism in order to provide it with relevant nutrients and balance the ratio of elements.

Various kinds of dietary supplements, both natural and synthetic ones, are widely available nowadays, but not all of them are appropriate
for everyone.

Using a standard dose of a given substance is not always a good solution. Its quantity should be adjusted to an individual and his/her needs. A lean physical worker with fast metabolism needs a different dose than an obese office clerk. Depending on the dose and time of the day, dietary supplements may prompt different reactions in different individuals, e.g. energize, sedate, strengthen, quieten, etc.

Degree of absorption is also important here, as it is often low despite a high dose of a supplement. It can be improved by using synergistic substances, whose chemical composition facilitates the absorption and distribution of the supplement inside the body.

All that key information is usually neglected. Although they provide detailed data and dosage, producers of medicines and supplements are not able to specify the way of administering them in combination with all other substances used by an individual. Then, the results of using a supplement are hardly perceptible, or even opposite to what is expected.

That is why it is so important to become familiar with your own organism and its individual needs and combine this wisdom with knowledge about food and nutrition.

All these significant factors are taken into consideration when designing an individual supplementation program based on the Elemental Hair Analysis - Health program. The recommended individual supplementation diet specifies a detailed dose, time of the day for using it, and the time for using vitamins, minerals, and plant preparations, in other words, dietary supplements.

Who is it good for?

Elemental Hair Analysis - Health program is especially recommended to individuals who have problems with maintaining mental and physical fitness, in particular to those with low immunity.

Elemental Hair Analysis - Health program is used in preventive medicine for adults and children (from 3 years old), as well as in supporting medical
treatment and recovery. It is most often performed in the cases of astrological, hormonal, neurological, dermatological, cardiological and bone and joint disorders.

Elemental Hair Analysis - Health program is very effective in supporting treatment of various kinds of disorders: psycho-emotional (e.g. depression, bad response to stress), neurological (e.g. MS, Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy, autism), dermatological (e.g. psoriasis, albinism, hair loss, acne), cardiological (e.g. atherosclerosis, heart attack), and diseases of bones and joints (e.g. RA, osteoporosis).

Elemental Hair Analysis - Health program is recommended to people who are exposed to the increased effort (physical or mental work, amateur sports), and those with significant physical effort (e.g. professional sports). It helps level the issues related to bad absorption and excretion (astrological disorders), thanks to which proper nutrition and natural detox of the body is possible.

The analysis will show the possibility of a negative influence of toxic elements on metabolism, and the supplementation program will help to get rid of them. By complying with supplementation and dietary recommendations included in the analysis report, you get a strong chance to win with chronic fatigue and weakness and obesity.

Elemental Hair Analysis - Health program is a good choice for those who want to raise their awareness related to health care, disease prevention, and to support their treatment or recovery.

What will you receive?

A report with the results of the Elemental Hair Analysis - Health program consists of about 36 – 52 pages for an adult person, and apart from diagrams and ratios of tested elements, it includes: metabolic type description, supplementation, and metabolic diet.

Metabolic type description

On the basis of the element ratio, we are able to determine your biological nature and its dominant qualities. Thus, you will find out how your body functions and understand its processes.

Learn if the energetic flow in your organism is fast or slow if you are “sympathetic dominant” or “parasympathetic dominant”; if your digestion is fast or slow, and find out how quickly your organism gets older. Moreover, you will see how effective your thyroid and cortex of your adrenal glands is, how your organism copes with stress and whether
it is anabolic or catabolic processes that are dominant.

You will also check your pH balance and find out if you have residues of lactic or uric acid. Learn about your health-related tendencies and find out what might happen in the next few years if you do not take the preventive measures recommended in the analysis results.

The Supplementation Program

The supplementation program included a chart with vitamins and micro-elements selected for you, as well as the doses and times of application, and it consists of two stages:

The first stage lasts three months and it is focused on nutrition. Its task is to balance the surpluses and deficiencies of elements and restoring the individual dynamic homeostasis.

The second stage lasts six months and its aim is prevention. It is to stabilize the optimum state of mineral nutrition achieved in the previous stage. If health and mood have significantly improved, the second stage may be prolonged and last even two years.

The supplementing is comprehensive, this means that it only applies the whole program (all the recommended supplements at specified times of day) will bring positive results.

Remember that supplements do not cure, but nourish, and doctor’s consultation is necessary in case of any pathological condition.

Metabolic diet

A metabolic diet is optimal for your metabolic type and the needs of your organism. It includes a chart with a seven-day menu, the energetic value of each meal provided, as well as recipes.

This diet is meant to show you the direction which you need to take in order to achieve the best possible results and support the supplementation program.

Sometimes, it may turn out that the recommended diet is different from the one you use (for instance, a fervent meat eater may be recommended a diet in which vegetables dominate), or it includes elements that you do not like (e.g. fish or vegetables). It happens because our natural and healthiest tastes have faded along with the development of food technology. Nowadays, almost no one can recognize and eat what their organisms really need (e.g. if you need polyunsaturated fatty acids, you should regularly eat fatty fish).

The analysis results will also determine your energetic needs and physical activity recommendations depending on your lifestyle.

When will you receive the results?

Analysis of a hair sample and preparation of the report with results takes up to 15 working days from the moment the Lab receives a complete order, i.e. a hair sample, an e-questionnaire. If any of these elements is missing, this period may be longer.

How to prepare a sample to analysis:

In order to be suitable for analysis your hair needs to be:

  • natural (i.e. not dyed)
  • clean (without styling cosmetics, such as gels, mousses or sprays)

Cut the hair:

  • with sharp scissors
  • cut the hair near the scalp on the occiput (at the back of your head between the ears)
  • cut a few small patches in various spots on the occiput only the first 3 - 4 cm (1.5 inches) of hair measured from the scalp are suitable for analysis - if your hair is longer send only the first 3 - 4 cm (1.5 inches) for the analysis
  • we require 200 - 300 mg (0,007 - 0,01 oz) of a hair sample for the analysis (about one tablespoonful)

If your hair is too short:

The minimum length of hair to be tested is 2 cm (1 inch). If the hair does not have the required length, wait until regrowth.

If your hair is dyed:

If your hair has been dyed recently, you should wait at least 8 weeks for dyeing and then cut it for 3-4 cm from the scalp.
