What Can I Find Out With a Hair Test?

Test for metals, minerals, chemicals, poisons, and drugs 

Have you been sick and don’t know why? Send us a small hair sample and our lab can test to see if you’ve been exposed to substances that can be dangerously toxic. We can test for metals like arsenic, cadmium, chromium, lead, mercury, and uranium.  This same test will also look for minerals like sodium, potassium, and calcium and nutrients such as copper, zinc, iodine, and potassium. Additionally, we have a test that looks for thousands of chemicals and poisons that you can be exposed to in your daily life such as pesticides, solvents, and industrial chemicals.  We can also test for prescription, illegal, and over the counter drugs. Get more information on the comprehensive drug test here.

Hair holds a history of our exposure to dangerous levels of pollutants from the water we drink and the food we eat.  You may be exposed to dangerous levels of toxic substances from your work place or home environment.  Get tested.  It’s safe and easy. We’ll send you a collection kit with a prepaid return mailer (inside US only).  Your confidential results are ready in 10-12 business days.

 

Hair test for metals and toxins

Our hair is one of the places our body uses to excrete excess minerals and metals.  So a hair test for these substances can be an excellent indicator of exposure to dangerous elements.  Lead, arsenic, uranium, thallium, copper, and mercury are just some of the toxic elements that can be detected with a hair test.  You can be exposed to dangerous levels of metals from the water you drink, the food you eat, and the air you breathe.  Our hair test for metals and minerals measures the levels of over 35 different substances in your hair.

If you’ve think exposure to dangerous levels of toxins is making you sick, a hair test for metals and minerals is a great place to start your medical evaluation.  A hair test can indicate a direction for further testing and investigation.

We’ll send you a collection kit and a prepaid return mailer (inside US only).  A minimum of 1 gram is all we need to test. $185
