Some of the information on this site is collated and research on the Internet, but much of the basic factual information is from one of two books.
The first contains basic information on vitamins and minerals.
The second is a book about specifically about Hair Mineral Analysis – a much broader subject. While the basics of vitamins and minerals are well known and documented in the book above, the book I recommend for anyone particularly interested in Hair Mineral Analysis is: Trace Elements and Other Essential Nutrients: Clinical Application of Tissue Mineral Analysis
The difference between this and the book and about vitamins and minerals is that “Trace Elements” details the complex interactions between the minerals – which is what most reference books omit, because it is not well-known, and against many commonly held theories
Because it’s a reference book the price may be prohibitive for the casual reader, so I have written my own free ebook on Hair Mineral Analysis that you can download here.
But for those of you who prefer a “proper book”, by an accredited scientist, I have no hesitation in recommending Dr. Watts’ book depicted here. Dr Watts is the Direct of Research for Trace Elements Inc, the federally licensed clinical laboratory I use as my testing facility. Click here for the scientific credentials of Dr David L Watts.
Despite being a text book for my 3-year nutrition course, this is surprisingly readable by anyone with an interest in the science behind Hair Mineral Analysis. Check out the reviews on Amazon: Trace Elements and Other Essential Nutrients: Clinical Application of Tissue Mineral Analysis
About the Author (Author Profile)A fully qualified nutritionist since 2000, I prefer to use Hair Mineral Analysis to assess my clients' health needs because it is an objective, scientifically validated method that is tailored to each client's current bodily state.
