Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA) is a safe and non-invasive pathology test. It measures the levels and comparative ratios of nutrient and toxic minerals found in hair which grows from the inside of our cells. The inside of our cells accounts for 95% of our body's weight. This test is completely reliable, highly accurate, and reproduceable. Micro mass-spectrophotometry is proven to be a highly accurate way to determine mineral content. The TEI Lab that performs the test specializes in this test only, has performed over a million tests, and has an extensive databank with which to compare results and speciific disease implications.
HTMA is regarded by many doctors, naturopaths and nutritional therapists as one of the most valuable screening tools available in everyday and preventative health care. Dr. Thompson considers this test essential to achieving good health and one of the most important tests everyone needs to do from a long term health standpoint. Any and all nutritional recomendations should be considered unreliable and possibly irresponsible without this test. (90% of our population is severly sodium depleted including those with hypertension. All medication and nutritional recommendations in these patients need to be based on reliable HTMA objective information not subjective opinion. Please referr to chapter 1-4, the Calcium Lie)
Consultation with regards to implementation of the results and specific recommendation modifications as individualized for each patient based on Dr. Thompson's experience as well as adressing other health concerns from a supplement or nutritional standpoint may be obtained directly from Dr. Thompson (telephone consultation) by contacting his office directly at 907-260-6914.
