“The Canine HTMA testing is a non-invasive test that supplies a comprehensive lab report using charts, graphs and supportive documentation to show metabolic status, and provides corrective actions to address mineral imbalances, reverse physical degeneration and revitalize cellular metabolism (energy).”
A HTMA lab test uses hair tissue for analysis. The reason hair is used is because (unlike blood or urine) it is stable over time and provides several months of biochemical activity in a single sample. Obtaining a sample is non-invasive and inexpensive, and can be done without the need of veterinary intervention.
After 3 – 6 months, a progress retest is recommended. Often, the results are very different from the previous test. An updated, revised corrective protocol will then be recommended. Retesting promotes progressive improvement and helps address potential adverse reactions due to toxin removal and the readjustment of mineral ratios and levels. Progress retests are repeated until a healthy biochemical balance is achieved. The HTMA retest is the most biochemically revealing, cost effective method for monitoring detoxification progress.
Hair Sample Collection
Hair is one of the most defining characteristics of mammals. Like other body tissues, it contains minerals that are deposited as the hair grows, hence why we can identify so much from hair analysis.
In order to ensure that results are as accurate as possible taking a proper sample from the appropriate area is important.
In this short video, Vykon Founder, Lisa Pitel-Killah walks you through the test kit, including where and how to take your canine’s hair sample.
