Skeptics Challenge
February 16, 2016

Rather than sending out a health tip this time, instead I offer a challenge to all readers in response to an email I received.

You may know I started a new website last year. I work with an American MD, Dr. Lawrence Wilson, to set up custom nutrition programs for people.

We use a lab test called a Hair Mineral Analysis Test (HMAT), which reveals one's nutritional imbalances, toxic metal levels and other valuable information. Dr. Wilson has been helping people this way for over 35 years. I have been on a program myself since July 2014.

Today I remembered receiving an email a few months ago from a man claiming HMAT is a scam, based on something he read in the 1980s.

Dr. Wilson has received similar emails too over the years and he eventually wrote an article on his website. Read it here.

Here is my challenge...

Get your hair tested and if it does not show any imbalances in your body I will happily refund your money in full.

All you have to do is post a spoonful of head hair to the lab. The basic HMAT will cost you just $39. Once I receive your test result I will email it to you along with an explanation of any findings. The result comes as an easy to read chart like this one.

If the test does reveal something you have no obligation to do anything further. If it does not show anything I will immediately refund your $39 in full.

Your $39 pays for the lab test so if the test shows nothing the refund comes out of my own pocket. Email me and I will send you a $39 PayPal invoice for the test.

The gentleman who emailed claiming HMAT is a scam... if you are reading this are you and any other skeptics up for the challenge?

I look forward to hearing from you.

Let the challenge begin!
