The Power of Hair Mineral Testing...

Mineral Imbalances are Linked to Nearly Every Health Condition.

Learn what your mineral imbalances are and address them with my help so you can start feeling better!​

Mineral balance is KEY to hormonal balance, gut health, and sleep. Minerals are the “spark plugs” of life. Without a proper balance of minerals, negative health symptoms start to develop within the body, including diseases.

Benefits of Mineral Balancing

Energy Boost

Are you exhausted most of the time?! Energy often comes in waves, but the goal should be to support your cells at the mineral level so that you can finally have more steady energy levels. Balancing minerals and removing heavy metals can help you regain the energy that you’ve been missing for years!

Hormone Balance

Do you struggle to fall or stay asleep? Do you have an unreliable menstrual cycle? Or trouble losing weight? All of these things are very likely due to hormonal imbalances. Did you know that minerals need to be balanced first before hormones? By balancing minerals, you are supporting healthy hormone levels.

Fat Loss

Did you know that the balance of your minerals actually determines your metabolic rate? If you have tried everything and either can’t lose weight OR you can’t keep it off, you may need to work towards balancing your minerals to finally meet your goals. Balancing minerals will help you improve your metabolic rate.

Stop wasting your money on useless multivitamins, single dose vitamins, and basic mineral formulations. Stop guessing what your body needs. Start assessing instead.

My Journey...

How Can My Minerals Be Tested?

New hair growth is a nonessential tissue in which minerals are stored and heavy metals are excreted. This makes hair mineral testing an excellent tool for testing for imbalances. In fact, hair mineral testing has been used since the 1920s to help people with their health issues. It is not a new tool! Check out what a hair tissue mineral analysis (HTMA) lab report looks like below.

With your hair tissue mineral analysis, we can see which minerals are ACTUALLY imbalanced, as well as get an idea of which heavy metals your body is dealing with.

More Than Just Mineral Balancing...

We can’t just balance our minerals and expect magic to happen. It takes time and often some troubleshooting to balance minerals.

In addition, if certain diet and lifestyle changes are not made then it’s unlikely that you’ll see much progress in feeling better. If you need help with this then you’ll want to work with me 1:1 to experience more life-changing results. Let me know if you’d like info about my 1:1 programs.

Some of the important factors I focus on so with my 1:1 clients clients so they can really see life-changing transformation include:

Clean Air & Water

We all must be using a high-quality water filter AND water purifier. Air and water are two of the biggest sources of toxins. I guide you on the best ones to choose from so there's no guessing or wondering.

Clean Food

If you want to be free of digestive issues like bloating, constipation, or diarrhea then you must know which organic, low-inflammatory whole foods need to be chosen so you can ditch those chronic issues for good!

Clean Sleep

Did you know that your sleep-wake cycle should be a HUGE priority if you want to improve your health issues?! In my programs, I educate my clients on what needs to be adjusted so that they can finally start sleeping again.

What my clients say...

The Hair Analysis Process...

You’ll collect a small sample of your hair at home for your HTMA test – don’t worry, I’ll show you how to do it without creating a bald spot!
A few small snippets of new hair growth is all that’s necessary for a hair sample. Contact me ahead of time if you are bald or shave your head so we can discuss options. If you dye or chemically treat your hair then I need to know this as well.

Collect

Collect a small sample of new hair growth (from your hairline) in the comfort of your own home using the at-home hair collection kit that we mail to clients.

Send

Mail it off to the laboratory for testing and your part is done! We provide everything for you (including a video) with clear directions to make it super simple.

Review

After 10-14 days we should receive your results from the lab. Based on your results, a whole food and supplemental mineral protocol will be crafted for you to support the natural process of balancing your mineral levels.

Targeted Supplementation

Extremely targeted supplement recommendations are based on your HTMA results, health history, and current negative health symptoms. The goal is to limit supplementation, but it’s normally needed for a period of time to establish balance and restoration. Stop wasting money on unneeded or unhelpful supplements with this approach.

Heavy Metal Assessment

Assessing for harmful heavy metals that are causing fatigue, inflammation, pain, brain fog, insomnia, rashes, digestive issues, hormonal imbalances, and chronic disease is an important part of moving toward optimal health. You’ll understand which heavy metals are high and how to address them.

Who Am I?!

YOUR health matters. It’s time to start addressing YOUR nutritional deficiencies so that YOU can start living the life of your dreams! With my help, let’s “Test, don’t guess!” so we can get you back on track.

I CAN HEAR YOU SAYING,
“SOUNDS GREAT, BUT…”

“I Don’t Have Time.”

This Mineral-Balancing Course SAVES you time. Instead of having to weed through all the confusing health information out there, I gently guide you through it by following research-backed, yet time-tested, healthy living practices. I educate and empower my incredible clients so that they don’t have to rely on me forever. 

“I don’t need any more supplement recommendations.”

Have you looked at the chronic levels of the minerals found in your new hair growth though? If not, you could be wasting your money on excess magnesium that’s actually causing an imbalance. Do you take a multivitamin? Again, that can cause an imbalance and be a HUGE waste of your money. You don’t know until you assess what’s actually going on in your body.

“It’s kind of pricey.”

Trust me, I get it. It’s hard to invest in your health, especially if you’ve already spent $1000s of dollars on it (to no avail). Your health is your most valuable asset though. While an expensive health course or program may seem like a significant upfront investment, it often leads to long-term savings. By addressing health issues effectively and preventing future complications, you can reduce the financial burden of medical bills, medications, and missed work days or time with your kids or grandkids down the road. You don’t have the time to not invest in your health.

Frequently Asked Questions

A hair tissue mineral analysis (HTMA) test reveals SO much about your nutritional stores of various minerals like calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium, copper, zinc, and more. 

Minerals are foundational for optimal health. They are often undervalued and poorly understood nutrients that affect every single process in our bodies. They must be balanced first if we want to fix our metabolic rate, balance our hormones, help our body make optimal enzymes, normalize our sleep-wake cycle, provide energy to our cells, and help repair damage done to our cells or organs. 

An HTMA test also checks if you are excreting heavy metals through your scalp. The body will unload certain heavy metals in the hair tissue as a way to get rid of them. We can see which ones your body is currently trying to get rid of and determine if they are one of the causes of your imbalanced minerals. 

An HTMA test is different than a serum blood test since serum blood tests (the tests that doctors typically order) only really show the previous 24 hours or so before the blood was drawn. That type of testing is not adequate for showing a person’s long-term nutritional status. 

After you make your purchase, we’ll email you with instructions. You’ll need to fill out a few forms before we will send you your HTMA hair test kit. You’ll have access to the course after we receive those forms so you can get started on the course while you’re waiting on your test kit. 

Before you collect your hair, we’ll mail you a hair sample collection kit (HTMA) from the lab that does the testing. There are instructions included within the test kit. You’ll also be able to watch a video that we created to help you with this process.

You’ll want to ask a loved one or your hair stylist to collect a sample of your hair in 3-5 different spots at your hairline (so it’s not visible). The hair sample must be collected from your scalp and be no longer than 1.5 inches in length. Following these instructions ensures that your HTMA results will show your mineral and heavy metal stores over the last 3-4 months.

Don’t worry, you don’t need to remember all of this! We’ll send you instructions in your kit.

Yes, you can. However, you’ll want to wait 3-8 weeks after you color/dye or chemically treat your hair. Three weeks is the minimum recommended time, but eight weeks is optimal in order to get the most accurate hair mineral results since hair treatments can affect results. 

It depends. Typically it takes approximately 6 months to 1 year to balance minerals. However, it could take longer if you’ve been ill for a while or have a chronic medical condition of any sort.

Even though it takes a while to balance minerals, many people start feeling better within a few weeks to months once they start giving their bodies the nutrients it needs. However, it’s a highly individual process for numerous reasons and we cannot guarantee any results. 

Several medications can also negatively impact nutritional status, so that needs to be a consideration as well. 

The course is designed to take approximately 6 weeks. However, if you need more time then that’s okay. You’ll have access to the course for 4 months total. There are a lot of PDFs included within the course material and you have the option of downloading these PDFs for future reference even after you no longer have access to the course.

There are various holistic-based topics covered in the 6 week course. Some of them include:

(1) Optimizing macronutrients

(2) Meal timing

(3) Your targeted mineral recommendations

(4) Binders

(5) How to safely detox

(6) Strategies for opening up your lymph to remove toxins

And more! We are often updating the course in order to improve it. 

No, not at this time. 

Great question! It depends on your coverage. You may be able to submit a “Superbill” for “Health/Wellness Coaching”. 

If your ability to work with me depends on this factor then I recommend that you make a quick call to your insurance company or HSA/FSA plan provider before you schedule your qualifying call with me to ask if this is a part of your coverage and whether or not there’s a financial limit that they will cover. 

You’ll also want to ask your insurance company or HSA/FSA plan provider what’s needed in order of it to be reimbursed or covered. Often, they will first want a doctor’s note prescribing “Health/Wellness Coaching” for you in order to treat a diagnosed health condition or chronic symptom. 

After you’ve confirmed that coverage, you can email me at support@livingancestrally.com and request a Superbill (it’s like a receipt/statement).

Depending on your HSA/FSA plan, you may be able to purchase any supplements you want to buy, but you should double check.

“Health/Wellness Coaching” is an option that is being covered/reimbursed by more and more insurance companies and HSA/FSA plans, so it is worth asking.

Great! It’s common for my clients to collaborate with a team of different healthcare professionals. They understand that each practitioner plays a unique role; conventional doctors mainly focus on diagnosis rather than day-to-day support with nutrition, habits, and mindset. Integrating these lifestyle changes into a busy schedule is crucial.

For those who don’t work with holistic, naturopathic, or functional health doctors, they might miss out on this comprehensive approach. In your Health History Form, you’ll be able to let us know about any medications or supplements you are taking and what type of other practitioners you are already working with.

We always recommend that you consult your healthcare provider BEFORE making any changes to your regimen or adding any new supplements. This is very important. Nothing that we say or recommend replaces the advice of your licensed provider(s).

Any supplements that we recommend are ALL optional. You don’t have to buy anything recommended. However, keep in mind that all recommendations have the goal of balancing your minerals and supporting your body through detox. Recommendations are based on your HTMA results.

It’s always advisable to speak to your doctor when starting a new health protocol, particularly if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, on medications, and/or have a diagnosed health condition.

Since this is not a weight loss program, we cannot guarantee that. Excess weight is a symptom of a larger issue. As we work towards balancing your minerals, your metabolism (and hormones) will likely change due to changes in the mineral ratios. This change can definitely affect your ability to lose weight. If weight loss is a goal of yours then you’re welcome to indicate that on your Health History Form. Whether or not you want to lose weight, the goals to balance your minerals and hormones will still be the same.

It completely depends on YOUR mineral testing results. All recommended supplements are solely based on your specific needs.

The lab that creates the custom supplements that I recommend are based out of Canada with the majority of the ingredients coming from North America, while some herbs are grown in parts of the world they normally grow in. The lab is a GMP-rated facility and rigorously tests their ingredients for heavy metals, allergens, and microbial contaminants. If you have allergies then be sure to let me know so that I can inform the lab how they need to prepare your custom formula.

This option is a part of my premium program, however, I can certainly order these for you if you aren’t a part of the premium program. 

The supplements come in a powdered canister with all the minerals and vitamins that are designed to help you balance your minerals. It’s much efficient than getting a multivitamin that you can buy at the store or online. It’s customized to what your body is deficient in and is tested to be free of nasty contaminants. 

You can add your powdered Custom Formula to drinks, smoothies, etc. in order to easily keep up with the nutrients that your body needs in order to become balanced. With this option, there’s no need to keep up with ordering your own supplements and all the bottles. The Custom Formula should simplify your protocol for you!

You’ll want to invest approximately 1 hour in “homework” time each week. Within each of the modules there are Action Steps that I recommend in order to quickly implement some of the health changes that will contribute towards you feeling better (and balancing your minerals).

These Action Steps make all the difference in the holistic healing process.

You’ll fill out a very thorough health history form where you’ll list your symptoms, medications, and diagnosed health conditions.

We’ll also be assessing your toxin exposure history within this form so we can assess if that contributed to your heavy metal load and/or mineral imbalances. 

Additionally, we’ll assess your lifestyle habits such as bedtime, eating times, and more to get a clear picture on what may need to be improved.

We want this to be a right fit for you just as much as you do. You must be at a 10/10 commitment level in order to purchase the HTMA test and course. It’s essential that you are ready and willing to make changes to your health regimen. You have to put in the work if you want to see progress. Your success is not dependent on anything that we provide.

We’re here to talk through any questions, struggles, or roadblocks you may have! Just email us at support@livingancestrally.com.

**All payments are final. No refunds or discontinuation of payment plans will be issued regardless of participation**

Life is full of interruptions and changes. We should not put our health on hold. Let’s get this process started so you can begin leading a fuller and more vibrant life again!

If you do have a vacation coming up then let us know so we can try to troubleshoot.

We cannot guarantee anything! That would be unethical and wrong. 

Your body and your individual challenges are unique to you. We cannot guarantee how your body will respond to anything. 

Healing does not come from what we can provide. You are the one that has to put in the long-term effort of actually eating the whole foods with the nutrients that your body needs, as well as reducing your exposure to toxins that may be in the water that you drink, food you eat, the products you put on your body and use in your household, ensure that you are breathing clean air at home and at work, and much more.

As you can see there are various factors that influence your ability to improve your health. We simply provide some of the education and tools that may help you improve your health to a degree as long as you choose to put them into action.

Please note that a Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA) is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, reverse, or prevent any disease. It is not intended to replace any other medical test(s) that may be prescribed by your medical doctor.
