Hair & Blood Analysis

Hair and blood analysis are diagnostic tests performed to detect any abnormalities, deficiencies, infections, or diseases in an individual. Hair analysis, also known as hair follicle testing, measures the presence of specific drugs, toxins, or nutritional deficiencies, and can provide information about your body’s health over a period of months. On the other hand, blood analysis or blood testing involves examining different components of blood including red and white cells, hemoglobin, platelets, etc., to diagnose various conditions such as anemia, infections, leukemia, immune system disorders, and to determine overall health status. Both methods provide vital information for medical diagnosis and treatment planning.
