Mineral deficiencies and toxicities affect all of us. Animal HTMA is an important screening tool that provides key indicators behind all of the conditions that your pet might be suffering from. Hair contains minerals that are deposited as the hair grows and a simple hair sample provides information about the mineral activity that has taken place over the last 3 to 4 months. This is extremely effective to provide detailed information about your pet’s health, including deficiencies and toxicities that could be causing these issues.
How it Works
“The Animal HTMA testing is a non-invasive test that supplies a comprehensive lab report using charts, graphs and supportive documentation to show metabolic status, and provides corrective actions to address mineral imbalances, reverse physical degeneration and revitalize cellular metabolism (energy).”
A HTMA lab test uses hair tissue for analysis. The reason hair is used is because (unlike blood or urine) it is stable over time and provides several months of biochemical activity in a single sample. Obtaining a sample is non-invasive and inexpensive, and can be done without the need of veterinary intervention.
After 3 – 6 months, a progress retest is recommended. Often, the results are very different from the previous test. An updated, revised corrective protocol will then be recommended. Retesting promotes progressive improvement and helps address potential adverse reactions due to toxin removal and the readjustment of mineral ratios and levels. Progress retests are repeated until a healthy biochemical balance is achieved. The HTMA retest is the most biochemically revealing, cost effective method for monitoring detoxification progress.
