We offer the Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (Profile 1) test results for 36 elements (without needing a doctor's signature) for only $105. The report illustrates your results with bar graphs showing if they are within reference range, too high or too low. This is the most affordable and accurate hair analysis available.

The multi-element assay of hair (36 elements, including Boron) is performed by a federally licensed clinical laboratory called Trace Elements, Inc. Trace Elements have been in business since 1984 and are established as a leading worldwide laboratory. (Please note: Trace Elements lab is a separate company from us, Evenbetternow, LLC). Trace Elements do not sell the hair analysis test to the public directly. This is a service that we are able to offer to you as an individual at a very reasonable cost.


Note Regarding Interpretation of Test Results: If you would like to add a personalized review and interpretation of your test results, please see below for more information or select one of the radio button options above or below before checkout!


Please Note: If you select the first radio button above or below, it does not include a mailed paper copy, only the digital pdf version which is emailed to you as soon as we receive the results from the lab. If you want an additional paper copy mailed to you via first class mail, select the second radio button option.

Also, all combination hair analysis tests with personalized consults and/or written summary (radio buttons 3 through 6) automatically include just the digital pdf report which is emailed to you. If you also want a printed copy mailed to you via USPS First Class mail you would need to request that in the "Additional Information" window when checking out. The Personalized Written Summaries by Rebecca are sent to you via email attachment only.


After hundreds of thousands of hair analyses, Trace Elements has developed a unique ability to interpret hair analysis results, which are detailed in their written report for you. With a properly obtained hair sample and their expertise, your hair analysis results will be extremely accurate.

The hair sample is prepared through a series of chemical and high temperature digestive procedures. Testing is then performed using highly sophisticated detection equipment and methods to achieve the most accurate and precise results. For details on the Quality Assurance/Quality Control methods used by Trace Elements Lab, click here.

Your Profile 1 Report from the laboratory will include the following:

  • Copy of test results showing a computerized bar graph illustration of high, low and reference range levels of the 36 elements (now includes Boron test) listed below under Elemental Assay of Minerals Tested.
     
  • Includes reference range to high levels for 7 toxic heavy metals (see below for list of metals tested). Note: You can have Antimony (Sb) tested as well for an additional charge of $30 by ordering here, or calling us at 520-877-2637.
     
  • Low, high and reference range for 15 important nutritional elements. Note: Boron (B) element is now included in the price of your test whether or not you purchase a combination Hair Analysis Test + Phone Consultation and Written Summary or just the Hair Analysis Test alone. (see below for full list of elements tested)
     
  • Low, high and reference range for 14 additional nutritional elements (see below for list)
     
  • Low, acceptable and high levels of 7 significant mineral ratios (see below for list of ratios tested)
     
  • Low and acceptable ranges for 9 mineral to toxic metal ratios (see below for list of toxic ratios tested)
     
  • Calculated values for 11 additional ratios
     
  • Brief explanation of the importance of each graph.

Please continue reading or scroll down to view the 4 Steps to Receiving Your Report!


Unlike some labs that test for hair minerals, Trace Elements, Inc. does not wash the hair at the lab. Washing the hair removes some of the loosely bound minerals and can reduce some mineral readings by 50% or more. Once your hair sample is received, the lab carefully inspects the sample and then cut and weigh it to within one-thousandth of a gram. The specimen is placed into an individually marked sterile centrifuge tube in preparation for the precise temperature-controlled microwave/acid digestion process.

A combination of high temperature and ultra-pure acid will uniformly dissolve the hair strands, thereby releasing the mineral elements held within the protein matrix of the hair. After homogeneity is obtained, the specimen is analyzed using state of the art ICP-Mass Spectrometry instruments.

The Profile 1 Hair Analysis is ideal for those individuals who are wanting to measure the levels of toxic metals and mineral ratios in their hair tissue as a way to monitor their nutritional status, chart their detoxification progress, and get a detailed blueprint of their nutritional metabolic activity. Please note that the hair tissue mineral analysis test is for informational and educational purposes only! It is not intended to be used for forensic evidence or for use in a court of law!

Hair Analysis Report


Customer Feedback:

"I ordered a hair tissue analysis online and I can tell you this has been the best money I have spent in reference to finding out more about my health.  I learned more from this analysis than I have from years of blood and urine tests and doctor visits.  Tissue analysis is far more accurate than blood and urine.  I would highly recommend this test to anyone.  I'm definitely posting a recommendation on my Facebook page, and plan to make verbal and email recommendations to family and friends. Thank you so very much for giving me a clear picture. The truth is in the tissues."- Barbara P., Nashville, TN


Why do a Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis Test?

Analysis of hair tissue is a non-invasive method (unlike the chelation challenge test) for determining which toxic heavy metals are present in the body. In addition, it can also measure the levels of essential minerals in the body, such as calcium, magnesium and zinc, as well as important mineral ratios.

Too little or too much of any of these essential minerals can have an adverse effect on the human body and its ability to recover.

Hair analysis testing is worth doing because a surprising number of people diagnosed with chronic health conditions actually turn out to have a heavy metal problem or mineral deficiencies. Heavy metal problems can be corrected using a safe detoxification program.

A hair analysis allows the underlying problem to be identified and with proper dietary changes, supplementation and detoxification, the chronic health condition often improves. For more general information on the benefits of hair analysis testing, click here.


Multi-Element Assay of Minerals Tested

7 Toxic Heavy Metal Elements: Uranium, arsenic, beryllium, mercury, cadmium, lead and aluminum. These heavy metals are well-known for their interference upon normal biochemical function and causing numerous imbalances in the body. Antimony (Sb), can be tested for an additional charge of $30.

15 Essential Minerals: Calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium, copper, zinc, phosphorus, iron, manganese, chromium, selenium, boron, cobalt, molybdenum, and sulfur. These nutrients play significant roles in such metabolic processes such as muscular activity, endocrine function, reproduction, skeletal integrity, and overall development.

Also includes 14 Additional Elements including: Germanium, barium, bismuth, rubidium, lithium, nickel, platinum, thallium, vanadium, strontium, tin, titanium, tungsten and zirconium. All mineral/metal levels are reported in milligrams percent (milligrams per one-hundred grams of hair). One milligram percent (mg%) is equal to ten parts per million (ppm).

7 Significant Mineral Ratios: Ca/P, Na/K, Ca/K, Zn/Cu, Na/Mg, Ca/Mg, Fe/Cu. If the relationship between certain minerals in the body is disturbed, normal biological functions and metabolic activity can be adversely affected.

9 Toxic Mineral/Metal Ratios: Ca/Pb, Fe/Pb, Fe/Hg, Se/Hg, Zn/Cd, An/Hg, S/Hg, S/Cd, S/Pb. Individuals with elevated toxic levels may not always exhibit clinical symptoms associated with those particular toxic minerals. However, research has shown that toxic minerals/metals can also produce an antagonistic effect on various essential minerals, leading to disturbances in their metabolic utilization.


Also included are 11 Additional Ratios: Ca/Sr, Cr/V, Cu/Mo, Fe/Co, K/Co, K/Li, Mg/B, S/Cu, Se/Tl, Se/Sn, Zn/Sn

A calculated comparison of two elements to each other is called a ratio. To calculate a ratio value, the first mineral level is divided by the second mineral level.

Reference Ranges: Generally speaking, the reference ranges in the report should be considered as guidelines for comparison with the reported test values. These reference ranges have been statistically established from studying an international population of "healthy individuals". The reference ranges should not be considered as absolute limits for determining deficiency, toxicity or acceptance.


Would You Like a Personalized Review and Interpretation of Your Results?

The Profile 1 Hair Analysis does not come with a computerized report or interpretation of the results from Trace Elements lab; therefore we recommend a personalized review and consultation by phone to help you further understand the results of your hair analysis. 

We offer a comprehensive 1 Hour Phone Consultation plus Personalized Written Summary which can be purchased with your Profile 1 HTMA report by selecting the radio button option above or below. The cost is an additional $120. (Note: The Profile 1 HTMA plus Phone Consult includes the test for Boron)

Your consult will be given by our hair analysis specialist Rebecca Yenchik, CMS, CNC, hTMA. Rebecca is a certified nutritional consultant (CNC) and health educator who has been trained and certified personally by Dr. Rick Malter, Ph.D., in the interpretation of the Trace Elements HTMA results.

What are the steps to receiving my report?

  1. Order: Once you place an order for the hair tissue mineral analysis with us, we will send you the hair analysis kit with complete instructions on how to take the hair sample. The kit is mailed in a USPS Priority Mail envelope (within USA only). Note: The HTMA kit does not come in a box! The kit includes a lab submittal form with a small envelope for the hair sample, a cardboard scale to ensure enough hair is collected (about 1 tablespoon), and complete instructions on how to take the hair sample.
     
  2. Hair Sample Collection: A "clean" hair tissue sample is critical to getting the most accurate results. Recent research indicates that coloring your hair will not affect your test results. The amount of sample needed is approximately a tablespoon of (dry) hair cut from the first 2 inches closest to the scalp from several locations on the head. We suggest you read through the instructions in advance of purchasing, by clicking here.

    We strongly suggest you follow the Do's and Don't's of Taking a Hair Sample by clicking here.

    Click on the slide show video below to see how to cut a proper hair sample in a way that makes it unnoticeable.  

     

    If you haven't already read the Sample Collection Protocol by Trace Elements Lab, you can do so by clicking here.

    Please Note: It is imperative that you submit enough hair sample weight by using the cardboard scale provided and adding a little extra just to be sure. Trace Elements lab requires a minimum of 0.125 grams or 125 mg of hair to perform the analysis. Not submitting enough hair will delay getting your results by several weeks.

  3. Mail your Sample & Form to TEI: You mail in your hair sample and submittal form directly to the lab Trace Elements Inc. (in the pre-addressed envelope). Please Note: You will not automatically receive notification that your sample has been received by the lab; therefore we recommend you mail your hair sample via USPS Priority Mail or by courier so you can track it.

    Please Note: The submittal form you receive is signed by us Evenbetternow®. You do not need to get a doctor or healthcare practitioner to sign it.
     
  4. Receiving Results: Once the lab has received your hair sample it will be queued up for preparation and analyzing. They typically complete testing within 7-12 calendar days of receipt of your hair sample. The lab emails us an electronic pdf copy of your report first, usually within 2 business days from the time your analysis is complete. We forward you that digital pdf copy via email within another 2 business days. If you paid for a mailed paper copy, it will come in the mail (via USPS First Class Mail) approximately 7-10 days after you receive the electronic copy. (Paper reports for international customers are mailed via First Class Mail International).

Please Note: In most cases, the turnaround time to receive your hair analysis results from the time you place the order with us is 2-4 weeks (although that varies depending on how quickly you submit your hair sample).

Also Note: If you are ordering a hair analysis for anyone other than yourself, including in your own family, it is very important that you include their name, address and phone number in the "Additional Information" section of the shopping cart, so that we can match your order to their name and ship the report directly to them or to you if it is a family member.

More Customer Feedback:

"Our family (nine children) has found many helpful things on your site. The most significant is your Comprehensive Hair Analysis. We have begun using it on the most serious health issues in our family and have found it to be very useful in getting to the root of our health problems. No significant toxic levels of heavy metals have been found, but the hair analysis is a life saver in addressing some of the emotional health issues we have. Thank you!"
- Marvin L., Howell, MI


Helpful Link: For Frequently Asked Questions about the Hair Tissue Analysis, please click here.

The most asked question we get is: "Can I do a hair test if I color my hair?" The short answer is yes; only dyes like Grecian Formula and Henna contain lead acetate which will affect your lead levels or other heavy metals, and bleach can artificially affect calcium. Your overall mineral pattern will not be affected though. Please click the link above to view other commonly asked questions and answers.
