74 - HTMA (Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis) Testing with Lisa Pitel-Killah
Tips to Help You NOT Blame Your Child with ADHD

Did you know that your hair is a window into your body and into the inner workings of your biochemistry? It provides insight into key minerals that are missing in your body and also toxic elements like mercury, arsenic, lead, and cadmium. It can help you find unique imbalances that can be the underlying stressors of many major health issues, including ADHD.

In this episode of the Soaring Child podcast, we are talking all about HTMA testing, which stands for hair tissue mineral analysis. My guest is a functional diagnostic nutrition practitioner, a board certified holistic health practitioner, an HTMA practitioner and educator, a multi-time kettlebell sport world champion, and a health, wellness, and fitness advocate.

Lisa Pitel-Killah discovered HTMA testing and chose to specialize in mineral balance after this specific diagnostic test identified the true underlying stressor of her chronic fatigue and estrogen dominance. Lisa works exclusively with HTMA and has helped thousands dig to the underlying stressor of health issues by focusing on mineral balance and a holistic approach.

Lisa is the founder of Vykon Health, which produces custom natural supplements used by health professionals, including myself, around the globe.

Memorable Moments:

”Hair tissue mineral analysis has been around for decades, and it really came to light in the 70’s.”

”It gives us a little bit of a deeper picture, and it brings to light things sometimes months or even years before they will show up in blood.”

“It’s a tissue biopsy of hair.”

“When I talk about mineral balance, it’s about building and supporting the foundation.”

”The big 4 minerals we call them are calcium, magnesium, sodium, and potassium.”

”It’s all about balance.”

”One of the first things to upset that balance is – guess what – stress.”

”HTMA patterns are dynamic. They can change. As we start to balance things, those patterns can change.”

”The first response to heavy metals is to give the body the minerals it’s missing or that are out of balance because that’s going to allow the body to have what it needs to do its job.”
