Did you know that your hair is the first indicator of your overall health? Today on Stronger Bones Lifestyle Podcast, Lisa Pitel-Killah joins us to share how she uses HTMA testing to identify mineral deficiencies to design customized supplement plans. Lisa is a board-certified holistic health practitioner offering online health coaching based on her innovative Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis. Using her non-invasive HTMA testing through her company, Vykon Health, Lisa is helping patients regain their energy, tackle debilitating symptoms and enhance longevity.

Traditionally, doctors have relied on blood tests to assess the health of their patients, but hair analysis allows practitioners to get ahead of the symptoms, and promote wellness faster. Your hair is a record of your mineral baseline, well before they are present in the blood,  making it the perfect tool for preventative care.

Each person has a unique biochemical makeup, which is why Lisa’s work with Vykon Health is valuable to patients facing debilitating symptoms. Her approach to individualized care is helping patients restore minerals on a cellular level. Not every supplement is helpful for every person. HTMA offers information that no other test can facilitate and is revolutionizing how practitioners understand the bio-individual. 

Join us as we explore the practical application of HTMA testing, and how Vykon Health will change how practitioners prescribe supplements.

Memorable Quotes:

“We’re looking proactively at what the hair’s picking up at a deeper level, and if that isn’t corrected, eventually the blood is going to show the same thing.” [7:20] -Lisa Pitel-Killah

“You really don’t need huge doses of one mineral! Remember more is not always better. When we’re using the right ratio of minerals, vitamins, based on science, which is literally your hair telling us your biochemistry, that’s what really gets the results that you’re gonna want.”  [16:50] -Lisa Pitel-Killah
