Fur tissue mineral analysis (FTMA) is a test that examines mineral content and heavy metal exposure in the body.
Fur samples are often a more useful way to assess the nutritional and metabolic state of the individual and are used to evaluate stress level, gland activity (adrenals and thyroid), metabolic rate, gut health, carbohydrate handling/sensitivity, dietary requirements, immune system function, inflammation level, and exposure to environmental toxins.
We use the information gained through FTMA to assess which organs are most likely being affected by any imbalances. With this information, we can greatly improve our ability to treat disbalances before they become serious illness, reduce stress, improve athletic ability, improve quality of life and enhance longevity. More information about FTMA can be found here.
