HTMa (Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis) Testing With Lisa Pitel-Killah

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.

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.
