Men and Children
Men and children are also susceptible to hair and scalp disorders, but they are too often overlooked and under-serviced by hair care professionals; more often than not men are too embarrassed to aggressively seek help for scalp treatments and hair replacement; parents often think that the child will “grow out of” any scalp problems or that stunted hair growth is just hereditary; in the privacy of her hair clinic office, Dr. Kari specializes in providing personalized consultations and/or services to address the concerns of women, men, and children

Why Test For Minerals?
Trace minerals are essential in countless metabolic functions in all phases of the life process.
Zinc is involved in the production, storage, and secretion of insulin and is necessary for growth hormones.
Magnesium is required for normal muscular function, especially the heart. A deficiency has been associated with an increased incidence of heart attacks, anxiety and nervousness.
Potassium is critical for normal nutrient transport into the cell. A deficiency can result in muscular weakness, depression and lethargy.
Excess sodium is associated with hypertension, but adequate amounts are required for normal health.
What Can Cause a Mineral Imbalance?
- Nutritional Supplements
- Inherited Patterns
What Is Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis?
Hair tissue mineral analysis (HTMA), is an analytical test which measures the mineral content of the hair. The sampled hair, obtained by cutting the first inch and one half of growth closest to the scalp at the nape of the neck, is prepared in a licensed clinical laboratory 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.
Why Use The Hair?
Hair is ideal tissue for sampling and testing. First, it can be cut easily and painlessly and can be sent to the lab without special handling requirements. Second, clinical results have shown that a properly obtained sample can give an indication of mineral status and toxic metal accumulation following long term or acute exposure.
A HTMA reveals a unique metabolic world; intracellular activity, which cannot be seen through most other tests. This provides a blueprint of the biochemistry occurring during the period of hair growth and development.
