If, however, it is necessary to conduct a diagnosis of any hormonal disorder or gynecological pathology, then a bundle of hair should be taken from the pubis.

From this composition, the hair is dissolved and fall into a spectrometer in which, under the influence of argon, it is burned down. The combustion products fall into a special sensor, which processes data and transfers them to a computer.
According to the results of the analysis, the composition of mineral substances in the hair can be pre-diagnosed. After that, the patient or prescribe treatment, or sent to a specialist to continue the diagnosis.
