Show Notes

For many people, hair tissue mineral analysis (HTMA) offers insights that provide the missing piece on their healing journey. Unlike blood tests, HTMA delivers a more accurate way of measuring mineral levels that looks at what's going on at a cellular level over time.

Today’s guest is Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA) Expert Hope Pedraza. Hope is a certified Holistic Nutritionist, nutrition coach, Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P), and comprehensively certified Pilates instructor and founder of inBalance studio. She helps women heal their bodies from chronic gut, hormone, thyroid, and autoimmune issues, and balance the mind and live in alignment. Hope is also a host of the fast-growing podcast, Hopeful and Wholesome.

In this conversation, Hope and I discuss how HTMA results are interpreted, what people with thyroid conditions should be aware of with HTMA, what elevated mineral levels indicate, the critical minerals we look for in HTMA, common sources of copper toxicity, detoxification protocols and who should avoid them, and more.

There’s a lot of controversy regarding HTMA and I was glad to have Hope on to talk about the enormous benefits it can offer. Enjoy the episode!
