Heavy Metal, Vitamin & Mineral Testing
We provide this service to test the Heavy Metal, Vitamin and Mineral levels within your body.
The test is done by a non invasive sample of your hair. It is a great way to test your current state of internal health irrespective of how 'healthy' you look on the outside. As it is completely non invasive it is a great way to see what is going on inside children as well as adults.
Heavy Metals within the body have been tied to so many illnesses and imbalances including: Fertility issues, Learning Difficulties, ADHD, Autism, Alzheimer's, Dementia, Depression, Stress, Mood Swings, Difficulty Losing Weight and has even been linked to Shyness (as they interfere with the neurotransmitters in the brain).
The three most common Heavy Metals are Mercury, Aluminium & Lead.
Heavy Metals are fat soluble. This means that they are stored in your fat cells. Once your fat cells are saturated they move to your brain, hence the links to so many different illnesses and diseases. This is certainly scary stuff but the first step is to be tested and then we can begin to clear any buildups and rectify any health concerns.
Our test fee includes:
- Assistance with taking the hair sample if required
- Full Laboratory Report on Heavy Metal, Vitamin & Mineral levels within the body
- Full Report from our Nutritionist, Lucy Patterson DipION FdSc mBANT CNHC. Lucy is well trained and highly experienced in reading these particular tests
- Dietary, Lifestyle and Supplement recommendations to address any areas of concern
- Consultation to discuss next steps and detoxification protocol if required
Note: Hair Analysis has been shown to give a really good indication of the Heavy Metal, Vitamin & Mineral levels you currently have in your body.
To accurately test the vitamin, mineral and heavy metals within your body, the hair sample must be an inch of new growth hair (growth of approx 6 weeks) that is free from any hair dye or chemicals. Hair is usually taken from the base of the head but hair can be used from anywhere on the body if necessary (ie. if there is no hair on the head).
Please contact us if this test is something you would like to do on a stand alone basis.

Caveat: We are not medical doctors and do not take the place of your medical doctor BUT we can work with your medical doctor and can GREATLY ENHANCE what they do.
