What is the purpose of this test?

Order this Hair Element Exposure Profile, which evaluates exposure to 31 essential and potentially toxic elements in a hair sample and monitors the progress of metal detoxification therapy. This test kit, offered by Doctor's Data, provides a non-invasive way to screen your hair for potentially harmful elements. By analyzing your hair, the test can provide valuable insights into any physiological disorders you may have that are associated with imbalances in essential and toxic element metabolism. Nutrient elements like magnesium, chromium, zinc, copper, and selenium are essential for the proper functioning of many enzymes and vitamins. Because hair grows about one to two centimeters per month, analyzing hair samples can provide a record of your element metabolism and exposure to toxic elements over time.


Hair analysis is a reliable way to detect recent exposure to toxic elements. Hair may contain higher levels of toxic elements than blood or urine. Hair element analysis has become a valuable tool for physicians and patients thanks to advancements in technology and scientific protocols. However, hair is vulnerable to external elemental contamination, so ruling out external contamination sources is the first step in interpreting a hair element report.


Hair element analysis is a useful screening tool for physiological imbalances in the body. It should be used in conjunction with other laboratory tests and patient symptoms and not relied upon as a standalone diagnostic test. Doctor's Data offers two hair analysis tests: the Hair Elements Kit and the Hair Element Exposure Profile. This is the Hair Element Exposure Profile test kit, which includes a standard screening of essential elements and an expanded selection of toxic elements.
