Introducing the Profile 2 Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA) Test by Trace Elements, Inc.

We offer the Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (Profile 2) test (without needing a doctor's signature) for only $140, which includes a 10-15 page computer generated lab report plus an additional health-care practitioner's copy (see below for what's included in the lab report). This is the most affordable, detailed and accurate hair analysis available. The standard cost for this type of detailed analysis can be $300 and up.

The multi-element assay of hair (36 elements) is performed by a federally licensed clinical laboratory called Trace Elements, Inc. Trace Elements have been in business since 1984 and are established as a leading worldwide laboratory. (Please note: Trace Elements lab is a separate company from us, Evenbetternow, LLC). Trace Elements does not sell the hair analysis test to the public directly. This is a service that Evenbetternow® is able to offer to you as an individual at a reasonable price.

A Note Regarding Interpretation of Test Results: Although the Profile 2 HTMA comes with a computer generated summary from the lab, if you would like to add a personalized review and interpretation of your test results through a phone/zoom consultation or a personalized written report (no consult), please see below for more information or select one of the radio button options above or below before checkout!

A Note Regarding Receiving your Report: All hair mineral analysis reports are emailed to you as a pdf attachment. A color printed paper copy can be mailed to you via USPS First Class Mail upon request by typing your request in the "Additional Information" window when checking out, or by contacting usUnless you request a printed paper copy, you will not receive one, only the digital pdf copy. If you select a personalized written report in addition to your Profile 2 analysis, the personalized written report will come to you via an email attachment after you have received your lab report and we have received your intake and consent form.

Why Choose a Trace Elements Inc. Hair Analysis?

After hundreds of thousands of hair analyses, Trace Elements has developed a unique ability to interpret hair analysis results, which are detailed in their computer generated report for you. Assuming the lab receives a clean and properly obtained hair sample, your hair analysis results will be extremely accurate.

The hair sample is carefully prepared 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. For details on the Quality Assurance/Quality Control methods used by Trace Elements Lab, click here.

Your 10-15 page Profile 2 Report from the laboratory will include the following:

  • Copy of test results showing a computerized bar graph illustration of high, low and reference range levels of the 36 elements listed below under Mulit-Element Assay of Minerals Tested.
  • Includes reference range to high levels for 7 toxic heavy metals (see below for list of metals tested). Note: You can have the toxic metal Antimony (Sb) tested as well for an additional charge of $30 by ordering here or calling us at 520-877-2637.
  • Low, high and reference range for 15 important nutritional elements. Note: Boron (B) element is included in the price of your test. (see below for full list of elements tested)
  • Low, high and reference range for 14 additional nutritional elements (see below for list)
  • Low, acceptable and high levels of 7 significant mineral ratios (see below for list of ratios tested)
  • Low and acceptable ranges for 9 mineral to toxic metal ratios (see below for list of toxic ratios tested)
  • Calculated values for 11 additional ratios
  • A complete individualized evaluation and detailed discussion of the patient's metabolic type, current mineral levels and ratios, and their impact upon body chemistry.
  • Dietary Recommendations of specific foods and food groups, along with an explanation of why each food is suggested.
  • Supplement recommendations based upon age, sex, metabolic type, mineral patterns and specific needs as seen on the tissue mineral analysis and other accompanying clinical test data. You can purchase the Trace Elements recommended supplements through us, Evenbetternow®, by clicking here.

Please continue reading or scroll down to view the 4 Steps to Receiving Your Report!

Unlike some labs that test for hair minerals, Trace Elements, Inc. does not wash the hair at the lab. Washing the hair removes some of the loosely bound minerals and can reduce some mineral readings by 50% or more. Once your hair sample is received, the lab carefully inspects the sample and then cuts and weighs it to within one-thousandth of a gram. The specimen is placed into an individually marked sterile centrifuge tube in preparation for the precise temperature-controlled microwave/acid digestion process.

A combination of high temperature and ultra-pure acid will uniformly dissolve the hair strands, thereby releasing the mineral elements held within the protein matrix of the hair. After homogeneity is obtained, the specimen is analyzed using state of the art ICP-Mass Spectrometry instruments.

The Profile 2 Hair Analysis is ideal for those individuals who are wanting to measure the levels of toxic metals and mineral ratios in their hair tissue as a way to monitor their nutritional status, chart their detoxification progress, and get a detailed blueprint of their nutritional metabolic activity.

Customer Feedback:

"I ordered a hair tissue analysis online from Evenbetternow. This has been the best $140 I have spent in reference to finding out more about my health.  I learned more from this analysis than I have from years of blood and urine tests and doctor visits.  Tissue analysis is far more accurate than blood and urine. I would highly recommend this test to anyone.  I'm definitely posting a recommendation on my Facebook page, and plan to make verbal and email recommendations to family and friends. Thank you so very much for giving me a clear picture. The truth is in the tissues."
- Barbara P., Nashville, TN

Why Choose a Hair Analysis Test?

Analysis of hair tissue is a non-invasive method (unlike the chelation challenge test) for determining which toxic heavy metals are present in the body. In addition, it can also measure the levels of essential minerals in the body, such as potassium, calcium, magnesium and zinc, as well as important mineral ratios.

Too little or too much of any of these essential minerals can have an adverse affect on the human body and it’s ability to recover.

Hair analysis testing is worth doing because a surprising number of people diagnosed with chronic health conditions actually turn out to have a heavy metal problem or have mineral deficiencies/imbalances. Heavy metal problems can be corrected using a safe detoxification program.

A hair analysis allows the underlying problem to be identified, and with proper dietary changes, supplementation and detoxification, the chronic health condition often improves. For more detailed information on the benefits of hair analysis testing, click here.

The Multi-Element Assay of Minerals Tested

7 Toxic Heavy Metal Elements: Uranium, arsenic, beryllium, mercury, cadmium, lead and aluminum. These heavy metals are well-known for their interference upon normal biochemical function and causing numerous imbalances in the body. Antimony (Sb), can be tested for an additional charge of $30.

15 Essential Minerals: Calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium, copper, zinc, phosphorus, iron, manganese, chromium, selenium, boron, cobalt, molybdenum, and sulfur. These nutrients play significant roles in such metabolic processes such as muscular activity, endocrine function, reproduction, skeletal integrity, and overall development.

Also includes 14 Additional Elements including: Germanium, barium, bismuth, rubidium, lithium, nickel, platinum, thallium, vanadium, strontium, tin, titanium, tungsten and zirconium. All mineral/metal levels are reported in milligrams percent (milligrams per one-hundred grams of hair). One milligram percent (mg%) is equal to ten parts per million (ppm).

7 Significant Mineral Ratios: Ca/P, Na/K, Ca/K, Zn/Cu, Na/Mg, Ca/Mg, Fe/Cu. If the relationship between certain minerals in the body is disturbed, normal biological functions and metabolic activity can be adversely affected.

9 Toxic Mineral/Metal Ratios: Ca/Pb, Fe/Pb, Fe/Hg, Se/Hg, Zn/Cd, An/Hg, S/Hg, S/Cd, S/Pb. Individuals with elevated toxic levels may not always exhibit clinical symptoms associated with those particular toxic minerals. However, research has shown that toxic minerals/metals can also produce an antagonistic effect on various essential minerals, leading to disturbances in their metabolic utilization.

Also included are 11 Additional Ratios: Ca/Sr, Cr/V, Cu/Mo, Fe/Co, K/Co, K/Li, Mg/B, S/Cu, Se/Tl, Se/Sn, Zn/Sn

A calculated comparison of two elements to each other is called a ratio. To calculate a ratio value, the first mineral level is divided by the second mineral level.

Reference Ranges: Generally speaking, the reference ranges in the report should be considered as guidelines for comparison with the reported test values. These reference ranges have been statistically established from studying an international population of "healthy individuals". The reference ranges should not be considered as absolute limits for determining deficiency, toxicity or acceptance.

Client Feedback:

"Rebecca is VERY knowledgeable and thorough!!! I only wish I had done the analysis sooner. I already purchased a retest. I felt I ended our consultation with a world of knowledge and left with many ways to help improve my health. Please don't rely on interpreting the results on your own. There are so many relationships between the many minerals/metals and ways they interact with one another I couldn't have solved my imbalances on my own. Rebecca is wellworth the consultation fee. Thank you!!"

What are the steps to receiving my report?

  1. Ordering: Once you place an order for the hair tissue mineral analysis with us, we send you the hair sample submittal form/kit with complete instructions on how to take the hair sample. The kit is mailed in a (trackable) USPS First Class Mail envelope. Note: The HTMA kit does not come in a box! The kit includes a lab submittal form with a small envelope for the hair sample, a cardboard scale to ensure enough hair is collected (approx. 1 heaping tablespoon), and complete instructions on how to take the hair sample.

    International clients (including Canada): In order to save time and frustration, you will receive instructions on sampling and submitting your hair sample via email. You will not receive a kit in the mail unless you contact us at 520-877-2637.
  2. Hair Sample Collection: A "clean" hair tissue sample is critical to getting the most accurate results. Recent research indicates that coloring your hair will not affect your test results. The amount of sample needed is approximately a heaping tablespoon of (dry) hair cut from the first 2 inches closest to the scalp from several locations on the head. We strongly suggest you read through the instructions in advance of purchasing, by clicking here.

    We also suggest you follow the Do's and Don't's of Taking a Hair Sample by clicking here.

    Click on the slide show video below to see how to cut a proper hair sample in a way that makes it unnoticeable.  


    If you haven't already read the Sample Collection Protocol by Trace Elements Lab, you can do so by clicking here.

    Please Note: It is imperative that you submit enough hair sample weight by using the cardboard scale provided and adding a little extra just to be sure. Trace Elements lab requires a minimum of 0.125 grams or 125 mg of hair to perform the analysis. Not submitting enough hair will delay getting your results by several weeks.

  3. Mail your Sample & Form to TEI: You mail in your hair sample and submittal form directly to the lab Trace Elements Inc. (in the pre-addressed envelope). Please Note: You will not automatically receive notification that your sample has been received by the lab; therefore we recommend you mail your hair sample via USPS Priority Mail or by courier so you can track it.

    Please Note: The submittal form you receive is signed by us Evenbetternow®. You do not need to get a doctor or healthcare practitioner to sign it.
  4. Receiving Results: Once the lab has received your hair sample it will be queued up for preparation and analyzing. They typically complete testing within 7-12 calendar days of receipt of your hair sample. The lab emails us an electronic pdf copy of your report first, usually within 2 business days from the time your analysis is complete. We forward you that digital pdf copy via email within another 2 business days. If you requested a printed paper copy, it will come in the mail (via USPS First Class Mail) approximately 7-10 days after you receive the digital copy. (Paper reports (if requested) for international customers are mailed via First Class Mail International).

Please Note: In most cases, the turnaround time to receive your hair analysis results from the time you place the order with us is 2-4 weeks (depending on how quickly you mail in your hair sample).

Also Note: If you are ordering a hair analysis for anyone other than yourself, including in your own family, it is very important that you include their name, address and phone number in the "Additional Information" section of the shopping cart, so that we can match your order to their name and ship the report directly to them or to you if it is a family member.


The price charged by health care professionals for this very same analysis is usually $300 and up; some as high as $600, including those offered by other websites online. Our price for the Hair Analysis (Profile 2) by Trace Elements, Inc. is only $140.00.

Price includes a 10-15 page detailed report from the lab with analysis, plus mailing (Priority Mail) of the hair analysis submittal form/kit to you and emailing the report from the lab to you once it is sent to us.

Receive 10% off when you purchase 2 or more of the Profile 1 Hair Analysis or 2 or more of the same Profile 1 Hair Analysis + Consult Combination!

Please Note: There are no refunds on the purchase of the hair analysis test or consultations.

FAQ's: For Frequently Asked Questions about the Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis, please click here.

The most asked question we get is: "Can I do a hair test if I color my hair?" The short answer is yes; only dyes like Grecian Formula and Henna contain lead acetate which will affect your lead and other heavy metal levels; and bleach can artificially affect calcium. Your overall mineral pattern will not be affected though. Please click the link above to view other commonly asked questions and answers.

A Message for Pregnant & Nursing Mothers:

Pregnancy is a huge undertaking for the body and mineral balancing is incredibly supportive to both you and your baby.  Mineral balancing while pregnant is important to support blood volume increasing. Up to 10% of a mother’s stored minerals are lost during pregnancy and more if the baby is breastfed. Working with minerals is a great way to nourish you both.

Although hair analysis is a valuable tool for assessing your mineral, nutritional, and toxicity statuses,  the approach to addressing your mineral test results during pregnancy and nursing is much different.  It is important to understand this because even if imbalances are found we often cannot fully address them while pregnant or nursing.  The focus is put more on supporting the body rather than addressing toxicities during this time.  It’s not ideal to push detoxification because these toxicities can be passed in utero and through breastmilk.

It is beneficial to test while pregnant or nursing but to significantly address toxicities, that is something to be handled after pregnancy and when nursing has ceased.


We offer a retest (Profile 3) for those who have ordered a Trace Elements hair analysis from us previously (does not apply to analyses received through a doctor or other distributor). The cost is $130.00. The retest report will show a comparative analysis with your previous Trace Elements test results.

If you would like to purchase a retest hair analysis , please click here.

We also offer a basic Hair Mineral Analysis (Profile 1) which is ideal for those do-it-yourself individuals who just need the measurements of toxic metals and mineral ratios in their hair tissue without needing a computer generated interpretation of results or dietary and supplement recommendations as is provided in the comprehensive Profile 2 Hair Analysis Report.

The Profile 1 Hair Analysis report is 2 pages of bar graph illustrations showing the same 36 elemental measurements as provided in the comprehensive Profile 2 Hair Analysis. The cost for the basic analysis is $110. For more information and to order the Profile 1 Hair Analysis, please click here.

We also offer hair tissue mineral analysis for dogs (canine) and horses (equine).
