Does anyone know whether hair mineral analysis can be done on NHS and what would justify it?

Alternatively, where can it be done privately to have results sent back to us directly rather than going through a practitioner?

Also, where can we have a comprehensive stool analysis done privately (bacteria, fungal etc), tried NHS but it was just too basic, I don't think they believe in candida :-(..?

As far as I can tell, the NHS does not offer a hair analysis service.

However after looking at peer reviewed medical journals, there is no reason to doubt its effectiveness as a method to measure minerals OR heavy metals. www.mineralstate.co.uk
