What this Course is about
My goal with this course is to give the absolute essentials needed to read and interpret HTMAs, and give you the confidence and knowledge needed to help others that embark on a mineral balancing protocol. My approach with HTMA uses a true holistic outlook with whole food nutrition and healing the body as a whole. HTMA is an essential test for anyone trying to heal from a chronic illness- proper interpretation can make a world of difference for your clients as you can gain so much information from just this one test.
Who this course is for
This course is best for current health professionals that want to add HTMA to their existing practice or those that just want to learn all about HTMA and mineral balancing the Sassy Holistics way. There will be an optional final test to complete that you will be able to email directly to me in order to get a Certificate of Completion. You will also have the chance to join our small Facebook group of class participants that are either other practitioners or HTMA enthusiasts.
So far, I have had about half and half: half of the people that took this course are practitioners themselves, and the other half has been taken by people that just want to learn even more about HTMA and mineral balancing.
What you get with this course
You will get hours of content explaining all of the important information pertaining to HTMA. You get all of the notes that I have on these topics, as well as links for more learning if desired. If you are a practitioner doing this course, you have the option to do the Final Test option, which I look over and provide some more materials (ideas for intake forms, how to start a blog, my favorite remedies, and more). Also, there is an option for further 1-on-1 training if needed.
This course has 8 modules and 20 lessons total. You will get a video on each main topic as well as all of the notes I have on these lessons. There is also a final test to complete if you are a practitioner that wants to complete this course 100%.
This course has over 3 hours of video. Most students take about 3-4 weeks to complete the videos, notes, and the final test.
Module 1: Intro to HTMA
This module will go over the history of HTMA, a basic breakdown on what it tests for, as well as how to take hair samples.
Module 2: The Ratios on the HTMA
This module will teach you all about the 7 main ratios that HTMA focuses on. These ratios are what shows us insight on adrenals, metabolism, thyroid, and more. It is CRUCIAL to learn what these ratios are in order to read HTMA correctly.
Module 3:Four Main Minerals: Calcium, Magnesium, Sodium, and Potassium
This module will go over the first 4 main minerals on HTMA, as they are the most important levels to understand on the entire test. These are the “big players” in the mineral world- when they are out of balance, all of the other nutrients are as well. Once we balance these 4, it can be a lot easier to balance everything else.
Module 4:Next Four Main Minerals: Zinc, Copper, Phosphorus, and Iron
The next module will go over the next 4 most important minerals on the HTMA. Zinc, copper, and iron are huge topics in the health world right now, and there is a lot of misinformation out there about them. This course will help show you how to truly work on fixing deficiencies and imbalances of these minerals.
Module 5:Other Minerals on the HTMA
This next module is all about the rest of the minerals that are tested on HTMA, as well as 3 other minerals that aren’t tested (but are important enough to mention). This section also has information on nutrient interactions- how all of these minerals either work with or against each other.
Module 6: Heavy Metals
You will learn all about the heavy metals that HTMA tests for, how to actually detox these metals, common sources of exposure, and more.
Module 7:Overall Healing: Gut, Liver, Kidneys, Lymph and more
This module will teach you ALL about my favorite remedies for holistic healing as they pertain to mineral balancing. This course is all about how to heal the body as a whole, so my approach to mineral balancing includes how to heal everything.
Module 8: Other information
This last module has quite a few extras for you. You will get a video about the most common patterns on HTMA and how I approach helping people with those patterns. You'll get a list of other tests that can be helpful to use in conjunction with HTMA, as well as more resources about mineral balancing and HTMA. You can find the optional test in this section as well if you want to complete and submit that to get a certificate of completion from me. Finally, you will get my short guide on Tips for Success, and a whole video on how to approach retests with HTMA.
