Regain Control of Your Hormones: Understanding Hashimoto's Disease Through Hair Elemental Analysis in India

Hashimoto’s disease, an autoimmune disorder leading to hypothyroidism, has been a growing concern in India, where lifestyle changes and environmental factors contribute to its prevalence. LifelineDiag introduces a pioneering approach to understanding and managing this condition through hair mineral analysis, a non-invasive diagnostic tool that offers a wealth of information about your body’s mineral balance and toxic metal accumulation.

Why Hair Mineral Analysis?

Hair is a long-term record of the body’s nutritional and toxic metal levels. In India, with its diverse diet and exposure to varied environmental conditions, understanding individual nutritional status is crucial. Hair mineral analysis can detect imbalances that may influence thyroid function, providing insights that are not always apparent in blood tests.

The Indian Context

In India, dietary patterns vary significantly across regions, directly impacting mineral intake. For example, iodine deficiency is more common in inland areas away from the sea, where seafood, a rich source of iodine, is less consumed. Conversely, exposure to heavy metals like lead and arsenic can be higher in industrial areas, affecting thyroid health.

How Can Hair Mineral Analysis Help with Hashimoto’s Disease?

Our Commitment

At FMD, we are committed to providing our Indian clients with personalized health insights. Our hair mineral analysis is not just a test; it’s a step towards a healthier life, with the support of our expert team who understand the unique health challenges faced in India.

THE IMPACT OF RAPID URBANIZATION ON HEALTH – Insights from Hair Mineral Analysis in India

As an Indian resident, I’ve experienced firsthand the rapid urbanization occurring across the country. Our cityscapes have been reshaped by skyscrapers, our roads bristle with traffic, and our lifestyle has undergone a complete overhaul in the last few decades. While this progress has brought many benefits, it has also been linked to some adverse health impacts. One way we can gauge these impacts is through the use of hair mineral analysis.


Since the liberalization of the economy in the 1990s, India has seen unprecedented urban growth. According to the United Nations, India’s urban population is projected to reach 600 million by 2031, nearly twice as much as in 2001. This has led to significant lifestyle changes, influencing dietary habits, physical activity, and stress levels.


Urbanization’s impact on health is complex. On the one hand, urban dwellers often have better access to healthcare services, and there’s typically a lower risk of infectious diseases compared to rural areas. On the other hand, the urban environment can encourage sedentary lifestyles, unhealthy diets, and higher stress levels – all risk factors for non-communicable diseases (NCDs) like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and obesity.


Hair mineral analysis provides an opportunity to understand the physiological impacts of these lifestyle changes. This technique involves the analysis of a small sample of hair to measure its content of specific minerals and toxic metals.

Research in other parts of the world has shown links between hair mineral content and various health conditions. For example, high levels of toxic metals in hair have been associated with cognitive decline, while deficiencies of essential minerals may be indicative of malnutrition.


In India, the use of hair mineral analysis is relatively nascent, but its potential is immense. A study published in 2017 by Prasad et al., investigated the levels of toxic heavy metals in hair samples of urban and rural population in Rajasthan4. The study revealed a significantly higher burden of heavy metals in the urban population, particularly lead and mercury. These toxins are linked to a variety of health problems, including neurological disorders and cardiovascular disease.


In light of the rapid urbanization, it is crucial to better understand and address its potential health impacts. Hair mineral analysis could be an effective tool in this quest, offering insights into the physiological effects of changing lifestyles and environments.

Monitoring the health of urban populations through non-invasive methods such as hair analysis, along with public health interventions targeted at promoting healthy lifestyles, could play a significant role in the nation’s health in the coming decades.

In conclusion, as our country continues to urbanize at a breathtaking pace, we must ensure that our health doesn’t become the price of progress. Embracing innovative approaches like hair mineral analysis can help us understand and navigate the challenges ahead.

FAQ's Hair Minerals and Toxins Analysis

Hair mineral analysis is the analysis of hair tissue to determine its chemical content. On average, human hair grows at a rate of about 1cm per month; therefore the analysis of a 3- 4cm cut sample represents what that growing hair has absorbed over the last 3-4 month period unaffected by short term fluctuations in the nutrient intake of the subject. The growing hair follicle is richly supplied with blood vessels, and the blood that bathes the follicle is the transport medium for both essential and potentially toxic elements. As these elements reach hair follicles, they are then incorporated into the growing hair protein. Unlike other body tissues, hair is a metabolic end product that incorporates elements into its structure while growing. As hair approaches the skin surface, it undergoes a hardening process known as keratinisation, and the elements accumulated during its formation are sealed into the protein structure of the hair. Because of the exposure of hair follicles to the blood supply during growth, element concentrations of the hair reflect concentrations in other body tissues.

Elemental hair analysis test gives a picture of the:

  1. Elemental deficiencies and imbalances. 
  2. It can be used to determine whether your metabolism is fast/mixed/slow. 
  3. Toxic heavy metal levels and the underlying reason 
  4. Function of adrenal glands
  5. Function of thyroid glands
  6. Level of antioxidant protection

Do not shampoo and wash your hair before sample collection for hair. Since hair treatments, such as colorants and highlights, are mineral-based, patients are advised to wait for twelve weeks before submitting hair samples for analysis if one of these treatments has been used.

After booking our hair mineral analysis test from the official website of Functional Medicine Diagnostics – FMD, the kit is sent to your registered address. Fill the information sheet in the kit and collect samples preferably from the centre of your scalp. Cut 40 to 50 hair strands from the base of your scalp and do not pluck the hair out of the root. Put the sample and the form in a pouch and ship the kit to the address mentioned in the instructions.

Through the elemental hair analysis test we obtain 3 group of results

  1. Level of individual elements 
  2. Information on heavy metal loading
  3. Ratio of elements

Before hair testing, samples are repeatedly washed in the Functional Medicine Diagnostic laboratory with a deionized detergent and dried before weighing. Analysis is performed via inductively coupled plasma with mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) utilizing collision/reaction cell methods coupled with ion-molecule chemistry, a reliable new method for interference reduction. Quality control of the analysis is carried out by repeat re-analysis of pooled hair extracts.

Several health problems are associated with chronic and acute heavy metal exposure and imbalance in essential and trace elements, including neurological problems, developmental delays, cancer, liver and kidney problems, learning disabilities, lower IQs, heart disease, diabetes, birth defects, and more. If you are someone suffering from unexplained chronic fatigue, digestive issues, aching joints, impaired blood sugar retention; or mental disorders like depression, impaired memory, getting a hair mineral and toxin analysis test done will give you a more root cause related solution.
