Minerals for Moms HTMA Package

What's the deal with minerals? Did you know minerals are the spark plugs to everything your body does!!???

I’m sure you’ve heard about minerals before, right? Like sodium, potassium, copper, iodine, iron etc

 

But what’s the deal? 

Why are they important? and most of all, why are they important for OUR health as moms and why are they important for thyroid health, pregnancy, postpartum and beyond?

 

As a Functional Medicine Dietitian and Women’s Health Expert I like to say the secret to feeling good in postpartum, as a mom, and throughout life is minerals. Minerals are to the body what spark plugs are to your car. Minerals make your cells run.

Think of minerals (calcium, magnesium, zinc, copper, potassium, sodium, iodine etc etc.) as your body’s spark plugs (just like a car has spark plugs).

They make your body (or “car”) run and function properly. Without them or with a lack of these “factory workers”, things start to slow down in your body.

You might feel: tired, fatigued, experience digestive issues, muscle spasms, delayed recovery, PMS symptoms, mood swings, poor sleep, hair loss, etc.

We can only get minerals through our DIET. These minerals come from the soil, water, various proteins, vegetables, fruit, herbs, and even spices.

You might see me preach about the importance of Protein + Fiber + Fat for all your meals and snacks to keep your blood sugar steady; well these foods also have a variety of minerals (and vitamins) in them.

Unfortunately, many of us are depleted in these vital nutrients?

Why?

Because our soil is depleted; our water is stripped of many minerals, and our food isn’t as nutrient dense due to decades of modern agricultural practices such as pesticide & herbicides.

STRESS also influences our mineral status! Stress depletes us of our minerals at a much faster rate!

Our body sees stress as just stress. This stress includes physical stress (including pregnancy/breastfeeding, overexercising, under-eating), emotional, mental, and environmental stress (like mold, chemicals, etc).

Maybe we’re not eating enough, we’re over exercising, we’re exposed to mold, we’re in some toxic relationships…whatever it is, our stress is high, and our nutrient load is low.

This is why I love using the Hair Mineral Test when assessing one’s nutrient needs: because it looks at your mineral status over the course of 3 months, unlike blood and urine where it’s just a snap shot at that particular drawing.

Certain minerals should not be expelled through your hair, they should be within your cells like sodium, magnesium, and potassium specifically. The HTMA test is an excellent tool to see how your body is responding to stress and how many minerals your body is keeping vs. expelling.

By seeing YOUR mineral status, we can see how your body is overall functioning and how it’s handling stress. We can then target certain minerals through diet and even supplementation.

Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis - Test don't guess!

Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA)
Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA) looks at how the body is utilizing minerals on the cellular level. Low levels indicate one is deficient in that mineral and can be a sign of chronic stress. High levels of a mineral can indicate active stress.
Significant Mineral Ratios
Minerals have synergistic relationships with each other. The ratio of these minerals influence adrenal function, thyroid function, blood sugar balance, iron balance, and much more!

This is for those who want to better understand targeted nutrition, supplement, and lifestyle changes!

You don’t have to spend thousands of dollars on testing and supplements to get your hormones & health straightened out in postpartum.

Mineral imbalances are at the root of hormone imbalance! Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis is a simple, proven, and inexpensive way to know what’s up with your minerals and get things back on track!

You can feel good, have energy, gain confidence and be the best version of yourself!
