Regardless of where you are located in Canada or the USA, I can offer my HTMA services to you. Whether you are local or at a distance, please visit my Pricing page to determine the fee for the service. Please go ahead and fill out the 2 fillable forms available under "Consultation Forms" and send these to me. Next step is to send payment by email money transfer to joyofhealth@telus.net (preferred) or via PayPal. Once I have your forms and payment, I will contact you by the email address you’ve provided in the forms and send you a hair scale. At this time, I will also email a bit more information with details on taking the sample and how to submit your sample to Trace Elements, Inc.  Once I receive the analysis by email, I will contact you to set up an appointment to go over the results and I will follow that up with my report and recommendations for you based on the data the test provides. Our consultation to go over your results can be conducted on the phone or via FaceTime or Skype.

The diagram below illustrates the sample that is collected and sent to the lab and the area of the head that the sample is taken from. The "submit" area is one and one-half inches of the newest growth of hair. If your hair is shorter than this, no problem. Providing sufficient weight is all that is required which equates to approximately 1 heaping teaspoon. Please note that hair must be freshly washed for the sample (no product) and must be virgin hair (no hair dyes or henna).
