How we use this as part of your treatment
Taking a hair sample for analysis and repeating the test 8-12 weeks later is a way of showing changes that have taken place.
Identifying causes of the problem – heavy metal toxicity or mineral imbalance to guide in the next stage of homeopathic treatment.
There are many treatment strategies available to homeopaths to suit your child’s individual state. Such as
- a constitutional remedy
- remedies to strengthen the gastrointestinal system
- remedies to strengthen eliminative pathways.
One of the most aggressive biomedical interventions is the detoxification and chelation of heavy toxic metals. This is something that many parents with children on the spectrum will have used or considered using. Homeopathic detoxification can be far gentler. Often with the right remedy the body will naturally chelate. Using Hair Mineral Analysis shows us that this is happening. In other cases homeopathic chelation might be a better approach, each child is different that is the magic of homeopathy.

Trace mineral analysis is a test which measures the mineral content of your hair. Mineral content of the hair reflects the mineral content of the body’s tissues. If a mineral deficiency or excess exists in the hair, it usually indicates a mineral deficiency or excess within the body, or bio-unavailability. It reads the mineral levels in the cells and interstitial spaces of the hair over a 2-3 month period. Hair analysis is also a way to detect toxic metals.
