How I Help Practitioners Get Started with Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis

I've shared my story about how I personally got started using hair tissue analysis (HTMA) in my holistic health practice (HERE). In this post, I am here to share how I got started helping other holistic practitioners, primarily functional nutritional therapy practitioners, learn how to interpret and integrate HTMA for their own practices.

I often felt like I needed more support and more insight. The truth is, I was already knowledgeable enough to help people and had a lot to offer the world.  However, I felt I lacked experience and wasn’t clear on what was possible for me as a practitioner.

I had a DEEP desire to learn more and my top desire was to get my own hair tissue mineral analysis (HTMA) done after reading some amazing things about this test. Not to mention, my intuition told me minerals were going to be a key player in my own healing as well as for others.

The problem was,  I had an avoidant relationship with giving myself what I needed.
I procrastinated, pushed it away and always said to myself "someday I will get to it.”

Thankfully, the desire kept on calling out to me. It became urgent when I had a couple clients I no longer knew how to help. As well as when my own health took a plummet and my youngest son had the biggest emotional public meltdown in school (every single day for weeks).

I found myself in a tough spot. Struggling to fully know how to help my clients. My own health making it incredibly challenging to manage my life. Not to mention, I struggled with imposter syndrome. On top of that, my sweet little boy’s health was in crisis.

I knew I needed not only more tools and insight, but I needed support with a mentor.

So, I finally bit the bullet, honored my intuition and began mentoring under a colleague to learn mineral balancing with HTMA.

It was full on throw myself into the deep end immersion style learning. I began by testing my whole family and 10 of my clients at the time.

Everyone was blown away by what the test showed and began to get results for their health we could not figure out prior. My practice started to pick up as I began to share my new services and I learned a lot by DOING the work.

I kept offering my new services to the public, networking and things blew up. I ended up experiencing massive momentum. I didn't shrink back even though I was still learning all the ins and outs of mineral balancing. My experience taught me so much more than had I sat on the sidelines continuing to do research.

You see, trying to 'wrap your mind' around concepts is quite difficult when you are not applying those concepts. Knowledge is great, but applied knowledge is even greater.

I would not have learned how to become a better practitioner without this immersion experience. It was much like being an intern in my own biz for awhile until what I learned became an embodied part of me.

When I finally gave myself permission to dig in to the power of minerals and HTMA, the results were amazing. Sometimes I think I fear doing something new because of the work it might take and how hard it could be. Sometimes I think I resist trying new things that I really want because I might fail. I bet you may have felt this way too.

I’ve since learned that when I fear failing, I can remind myself; what if I actually succeed instead? What could life look like for me, if I chose to see what was possible instead of what could go wrong.

Since then, HTMA has been at the core of my practice and work. I continue to learn more and never cease to be amazed at the power of mineral balancing. Every new client and every new student still teaches me. I still am SO turned on by sharing this powerful knowledge and insight with whomever chooses to work with me.

All we own is what we have learned. If you want to take ownership of your own health and/or your own holistic practice, it's not enough just to read about minerals. You have to get in the arena of your life and actually play the game. Play it to win!  Play it to also have fun, to grow and stretch yourself beyond just sitting on the sidelines.

So, now it’s your turn?

Will you heed the call, the inner nudge that learning more about the ‘mineral piece’ is a good idea? If minerals are key players and a core health foundation for everyone, doesn’t it make sense to set yourself up for greater success by getting started with the best functional test that tackles them?

For your personal health OR in your holistic health practice.

I know one thing for sure, you won’t ever know unless you give yourself permission and take the leap.
