  • Preparation for the test
General:
  • Hair should be washed e.g. a day before collection, not sprayed and without conditioner. If hair is dyed it is necessary to wait about 4 weeks after colouring (min. 3 cm regrowth is required)
    We take hair with regrowth. If the patient has undergone permanent straightening treatments or other (non-standard) treatments, there should be at least 3 cm regrowth. 3 cm of regrowth.
    For the examination approx. 3 cm of hair is taken from the scalp in the occipital region. If someone has short hair or a shaved head, it is necessary to wait until the hair has grown back to a length of at least 1-1.5 cm.
  • Important
The patient receives the examination result in the registration office at Radziwiłłowska Street 5. Children can be tested after their 4th birthday. Samples brought in from outside are not accepted for testing.
  • Description
It is a diagnostic method that assesses the nutritional status of a person and the biochemical state of the body. It is a laboratory test which determines the composition of trace elements in hair. According to the study, there is a correlation between the levels of elements in the hair and internal organs.
The concentration of elements in the blood can change with emotional changes or depend on the meal consumed.
Such variability is not observed in hair analysis. Thanks to this method, gastric diseases (e.g. malabsorption syndrome), dermatological diseases (hair loss and greasiness, psoriasis, eczema, mycosis, vitiligo), cardiological, neurological, osteoarticular diseases, hormonal disorders, toxic element poisoning, obesity problems can be treated more easily.
The result includes the measurement of the content of elements in the body (including so-called heavy metals) and a description of the mineral metabolism with the indication of disease tendencies and dietary suggestions with vitamin and trace element supplementation.
In the Elemental Hair Analysis - Analytical Programme the most important elements determining the structure of human organism and the most significant proportions between them are determined. 24 bioelements are determined: calcium, sodium, potassium, phosphorus, zinc, magnesium, iron, copper, molybdenum, cobalt, chromium, lithium, strontium, nickel, manganese, selenium, vanadium, boron, barium, sulphur, germanium, silicon, iodine, tin and 5 toxic elements: arsenic, mercury, aluminium, cadmium, lead.
