Development science employs the use of the Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA) as a means to construct a biochemical picture of what’s going on inside a person. It measures the levels of 21 minerals in the hair which reflect the behavior of the whole body over an extended period of time, since everything in our bodies are made up of minerals. The mineral levels, ratios and patterns reveal insights about health, disease roots, toxicity, emotional health, progress on the program, and much more!
A great way to understand HTMA is through the old hermetic axiom, “As above, so below.” This essentially means that life is scaled with a certain correspondence between each level, just like how the keys on a piano consist of the same repeating notes across lower and higher octaves. Nature uses repeating whole number patterns to generate all life forms in the universe, and the forms created this way are referred to as fractals. In this sense, our bodies are fractals as well, and this is how a HTMA is able to peek into so many levels our existence, including lifestyle, dietary habits, metabolic type, gland/organ activity, as well as psychology/emotional states, personality, movement and direction in one’s life, and development. From this information, personalized programs bring about ever deeper healing and profound transformation, coming ever closer to one’s highest potential and innermost nature.
Here are some ways this information is applied:
