The Mineral Solution Every Health Practitioner Must Have

Not having one simple functional test to create a clear plan for addressing your clients mineral balancing needs can be an enormous detriment to your holistic health practice.

But you already know this.

Trying to guess with minerals is like throwing spaghetti against the wall and hoping it will stick. 

If you're here, you already get that testing matters. You already get that the ‘mineral piece’ is incredibly important. 

But how do you develop an approach for your clients mineral needs that’s customizable as well as a repeatable system so you don’t have to keep reinventing the wheel?

...Introducing: The HTMA Practitioner Jumpstart

A 6 module, DIY, step-by-step, sustainable approach to integrating Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis into your holistic health practice so you can more effectively support your ideal client base and create effective bio-individual game plans.

Hi, my name is Lydia Joy

A couple years into running my holistic health practice online, I realized 2 things. First, my own health kept crashing and it took a major toll on me. Second, I realized that I could only take 95% of my clients so far before hitting a wall with zero clue on how to continue to support them. I realized I needed more clarity for both my own health and my clients. So I turned to HTMA.

HTMA was the most affordable, big bang for my buck test I had access to back then, so I hired a colleague to mentor me. Once I got started, I never looked back. The results I got for both myself and my clients blew me away. My clients LOVED how the test validated their health concerns and gave them a clear plan to work on. And, when they actually implemented my recommendations they got amazing results. Our bodies just work BETTER in all ways when the minerals are in place.

Allow me to explain why integrating HTMA into your practice is so important …

First, people LOVE tests and hard data. It’s ingrained in us thanks to Western medicine…
Second, people feel validated when they understand what the information HTMA shows them about their entire health picture.
Third, it’s affordable and gives massive insight that no other test can show.
Fourth, it gives YOU the practitioner clarity on how to address the mineral piece of the puzzle for your clients, while also addressing every single health foundation.
Finally, it’s repeatable and intended to be used long term to course correct your client’s health.

While developing a clear understanding of the mineral system is critically important, it tends to bring up a lot of stress for practitioners. . .

Over the years I’ve heard many practitioners say that trying to learn HTMA led to information overwhelm. Or that the lab graph is too hard to crack and way too confusing,

They feel that using the lab generated HTMA recommendations is very limiting. To combat this, they want to be able to create and customize their own protocols for clients. However,  doing so takes them several hours to review one HTMA and create a protocol for their clients which is not a sustainable approach. 

But I find that when people finally get past their fear of or resistance to learning a whole new functional test and skillset, they tend to feel overwhelmed and wonder: “Where do I even start?”

I’ve witnessed so many practitioners go through their HTMA journey in fear and overwhelm, only to come out the other side feeling confused or discouraged. Or worse not taking any action at all and missing out on an amazing new tool and skillset.

I thought to myself, ‘Why is HTMA so hard? There’s got to be a better way to do this.”

Over the course of the past 6 1/2 years, I created course content, resources, materials, refined my processes and worked on HTMA with over 300 practitioners online, dozens one-to-one, and several hundred clients of my own.

Through my journey, I believe I have come up with a process that will be truly helpful, transformational and enjoyable for anyone who struggles with learning an entire new functional test and modality.

I call this process The HTMA Practitioner Jumpstart 

And I've finally created a self-paced, DIY, online study version of it.


The HTMA Practitioner Jumpstart was created to help holistic practitioners learn how to set up their practice to integrate HTMA, learn how to read and interpret the lab graph results and know how to customize their client game plans with confidence and clarity. Over the course of 6 modules, you will be guided (via weekly video tutorials) through a step-by-step process to help you integrate HTMA into your practice

This is for you if...

  • You know your lack of understanding about minerals is hurting you
  • You want a functional test in your practitioner tool belt that covers all health foundations in one fell swoop
  • You have a health certificate or license that allows you to open an account with the lab
  • You live in the United States
  • You live in a state you are legally allowed to practice functional nutrition
    Sorry I can’t tell you what your state laws are. Do your due diligence and find out what scope of practice you are legally allowed in your state.
  • You want to set yourself apart
    You want to be more valuable to another licensed practitioner in your area and work under them with something they don’t offer or know how to interpret.
  • You want more confidence and clarity in customizing protocols
    I invite you to consider this a thorough beginner’s guide to HTMA to use with your first several dozen clients on a first time test. It’s an opportunity to buy in to the process, set up an effective approach in your practice, use it for as many clients as you like over 3 months then decide if it’s a test you want to use to continue to grow your practice with before delving into the deeper aspects of what HTMA uncovers. This will help get you faster traction in your practice and avoid massive overwhelm and time studying deeper concepts you won’t even be able to use until clients have gotten to their 3rd and 4th retests.
  • You resonate with my approach
    A whole person approach including lifestyle, stress relief care, dietary adjustments, appropriate supplementation, mindset, gentle detox practices. You want a way to be more intuitive in your work so you can create sensible plans for each person taking bio-individuality into consideration. In other words, you don’t trust computers to do your job entirely for you (aka: lab generated recommendations).
  • You have the following tech : a laptop / wifi and  a printer (there are numerous handouts in this program you might want to print out, but you can also download and save them so you can send to your clients that way as well).

This is not for you if …

  • You don’t have a health certification
  • You aren’t already set up to work with clients 1:1 (this is a quick fix, don’t let it hold you back)
  • You are still a student (feel free to come back and join once you graduate)
  • You live outside the United States (sorry, I can’t guarantee you will have access to the appropriate lab I teach in the course)
  • You live in New York (sorry, it’s not you, NY doesn’t play nice with the lab).
  • You want personal coaching
  • You can’t commit to the process


In fact my core promise is that if you do the work and employ what I teach in the program with at least 5 clients you will get great results - if you don’t, get in touch with me and we’ll discuss why and I’ll make sure you are crystal clear, otherwise I will give you a 100% refund. It’s that simple! (I might also ask you how I might have marketed it better so that you would have known, upfront, that this wasn't going to be a fit for you).

What people are saying...

"The HTMA Practitioner Jumpstart is very well laid out. Everything is explained really well.

I have sold at least 20 if not more HTMA's since I "graduated" from the course just a couple of months ago.

It gave me something I can do virtually if needed which came in really handy during lock down. It is also a great resource for referrals. Not to mention a solid base of supplement sales.

I gave a talk about mineral burnout to a large local business group and it yielded 6 new clients. I could go on and on. I have found that every condition points back to mineral deficiencies or imbalances and that correcting these is often a key to rapid transformation." ~ Kelly Greenway


"I cannot recommend this program enough! Lydia also covers how to market the testing and samples of ways to run appointments for both one time consultations as well as packages.

Before I even completed the program, I offered beta pricing to potential clients for a one time consultation appointment, with test included and had 3 clients in 24 hours! This more than paid for the course itself.

The program was self paced, clear and easy to understand, yet chock full of information. It is CEU eligible through the NTA as well.

I have found this extremely valuable for my business working with those who have thyroid disease."  ~ Elaine Swanson

"I absolutely loved this course. I have learned so much, and find the content pretty mind-blowing to say the least.

Lydia not only provided a wealth of knowledge in the course, but she was very helpful and responsive to questions that we have.

In addition, I have found the bonus weekly live calls to be invaluable. Not only do we go over case studies and have Q & A related to content, but she makes it a point to check in with us personally. Lydia challenged me (in an awesome way) to think about a lot of things when it comes to my business, marketing, vision, and being "stuck" in certain mindsets that may be hindering my progress.

I loved having the additional coaching in this way...and she is great at it. I highly recommend this course, and any services working with Lydia from a coaching/consulting perspective. I look forward to future trainings/classes that she may offer. Thank you Lydia for making learning about minerals fun and exciting!" ~ Jaime Brooke


“LYDIA!!! I have made more money in the past 3 weeks in my business than I have since opening up my practice because of taking your course and starting to offer HTMA!!! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! ” ~ Laura L


"HTMA has always fascinated me for quite awhile now, and this class is exactly what I was looking for. I absolutely loved it!! Lydia's down to earth relatable teaching style made it that much better!

I find my clients respond better to slow and steady and I'm so appreciative to have a tool that helps me get clients big wins without overwhelm." ~ Rena Shaab


“Taking your course was one of my most valuable courses I’ve taken. Not only did it introduce me to the importance of minerals but it taught me how to use a hair tissue mineral analysis test. It’s like seeing a story and being able to tell someone’s story. Minerals are clearly a huge missing piece for all of us.” ~ Erik Levi

I’ll take the risk for you. How does that sound? 

But remember, if you don’t believe you’ll actually do the course work and this program is just going to take up space in your laptop storage, don’t sign up.  I don’t give refunds for buyers remorse.
