About 8 years ago, my health hit rock bottom.

I was dealing with chronic issues for most of my adult life, but the WORST thing possible happened to me:
I couldn’t even EAT or DRINK without gut pain.

This experience is what lead me into the world of natural health.

I saw countless doctors and none of them ever gave me a real solution- only more medications and invasive procedures that didn’t even guarantee results.

As my health declined further with their suggestions, I decided enough was enough.

My gut pain issues lasted for about 5 months before I finally went my own way.

I ditched their medications and started using aloe vera and apple cider vinegar and on the FIRST DAY of using these, my gut pain was gone and I could eat more foods!

Within a month, I was basically back to normal.

That experience is what lead me to get into nutrition. Now, I have my Bachelor of Science in Natural Health Sciences with a concentration in Clinical Nutrition.
I have several certifications in herbal medicine, HTMA, and other natural health practices.

For 5 years now, I have been using HTMA and whole food nutrition to help thousands of people heal their gut (and the rest of their bodies!).

I have made it my mission to actually help people HEAL instead of getting dependent on pills forever, pills that don’t even always work.


Minerals and Vitamins


This course goes over the importance of 18 minerals and all of the main vitamins. You will learn the function of these nutrients and where to find them in food, as well as how to increase absorption and utilization.

Whole Food Nutrition


The main purpose of this course is to teach that food truly is medicine! Learn why food based nutrition is the best way to heal, and why supplements can be so problematic.

Heavy Metals


You will also learn about some of the most common heavy metals that we are exposed to. You'll find out how these metals can harm our health and how you can reduce your exposure.

There are 4 main modules in this course that cover a LOT of ground!


Module 1: Course Intro and Why Mineral Balancing Needs a Holistic Approach

You will learn what this whole course is about, as well as why we need to use a holistic approach with mineral balancing.

HTMA has been used in such an odd way since its inception and I’ve changed that quite a bit.

All of the amazing research about minerals shows how all nutrients have co-factors and antagonists, but for some reason people have used nothing but synthetic supplements on their mineral balancing plans.

It’s time to stop this insanity, and go back to whole food nutrition!


Module 2: The The Four Main Minerals: Calcium, Magnesium, Sodium, Potassium

In this module, you’ll learn about the four main players in the mineral world. These 4 important minerals set the stage for pretty much everything else!


Module 3: The Next Four Main Minerals: Copper, Zinc, Iron, Phosphorus

This module will teach you about the next 4 main minerals- and they are all SO important to learn about so you can balance them properly.


Module 4: Our Remaining Minerals and the Heavy Metals

You’ll learn all about the 10 other main minerals that we tend to focus on: what their purposes are, where to find them in food, and if there are any issues with supplementing.

This module has another section about the most common heavy metals as well: where you might be exposed to them, how to reduce exposure, and how to PROPERLY detox them.


Module 5: All About Vitamins!

In this last module, you’ll learn all about vitamins! This is such an awesome module because you get SO much extra info on how minerals and vitamins interact, PLUS you will learn exactly why there is so much misinformation about vitamins A and D.
