Hair Testing For Vitamins & Mineral Levels

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking of having my vitamin & mineral levels checked by hair strand testing as I have classic signs of some deficiencies (ridged nails etc). I was wondering about hair testing, but my GP was fairly sceptical about it (not that that means anything ;) ). Just wondering what other people think of it and whether anyone has tried it and had helpful results.
