A hair analysis determines exactly what chemicals are inside of you, including radiation, heavy metals such as mercury, aluminum, tin, copper, and lead, food chemicals such as aspartame, pesticides and more! Generic medical lab tests don't identify deep tissue toxins or nutrient depletions.
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.
Hair analysis is probably the best way to determine if you are deficient in minerals. Blood analysis is appropriate for determining certain minerals like iron, but generally blood analysis is much more expensive than hair analysis.
A blood tests shows what is happening outside the cell. The hair gives a reading of what is being stored in the body. For example, if we find metals in the hair we would also find it being stored in the liver, kidney and other tissues. This would manifest as symptoms such as poor memory, fibromyalgia, restless leg syndrome, hyperactivity in children, heart disease and depression just to name a few.
Having an analysis performed is one of the most accurate ways of detecting toxic metals within your tissues and determining your vitamin and nutrient imbalances. You first must IDENTIFY the cause or causes of your health symptoms before you attempt to ‘heal’ them.
Interpretation is important because high levels of a mineral in the hair doesn't always mean that the mineral is high in the body.
How Does A Hair Analysis Work?
Dr. Firnbach sends a sample of your hair to a testing laboratory. The protein in hair fiber holds the composition of the body tissues for a permanent period. By analyzing the hair fiber composition, you can tell what toxins have accumulated in the body tissues and what vitamins and minerals are depleted or too abundant causing an imbalance in body function.
By detoxifying unnatural chemicals and by replacing specific vitamins individual to your needs, proper health can be restored through nutrition. The human hair analysis can detail these levels.

What is Included in the Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis Results?
When you order the hair tissue mineral analysis, you will receive a 15-20 page report that includes your information about: • metabolic rate • energy levels • sugar and carbohydrate tolerance • immune system • autonomic balance • glandular activity (for a potential thyroid or adrenal condition) • mineral levels • heavy metal toxicities The test results are printed on an easy-to-read graph. The printed graph shows mineral results, metal toxicities, major mineral ratios, and the oxidation type.
The results also include a 15 minute phone or email consultation with Dr. Firnbach. She will help provide further interpretation of the results as well as recommend a wealth of information covering diets, food preparation, eating habits, supplements, and detoxification programs.
How Is Hair Analysis Done?
The collection for the hair analysis is simple and absolutely painless. (Click here for instructions on how to collect your hair sample.) You then send the hair sample to a licensed clinical laboratory for a series of procedures. The tests are performed with highly sophisticated detection equipment and methods to achieve the most accurate and precise results. Dr. Firnbach usually receives the results within 10-14 days after the lab receives the sample.
