HTMA Testing

HTMA Testing


You want to jump out of bed after a great night of sleep, full of energy and have mental clarity that lasts all day. 

You want to be SUPER PRODUCTIVE and be at the top of your game at work and at home. 

You want anxiety to no longer have a complete hold over your life and that you can be totally chill and relaxed in everything that you do.  

You want to  get HOURS back every single day to do with however you want. 

You want to have energy and stamina to be able to keep up with your kids and the daily demands of your home and work.

You no longer want to feel like a PRISONER in your own body.

Here’s a fact: I used to want all of these things too because I struggled for YEARS with insomnia, anxiety, brain fog, and fatigue. 

Here’s another fact: These wants are now my reality. And I want for it to be yours too. 

Introducing HTMA Testing 

A simple test & customized healing plan so that you can ditch the fatigue, insomnia, migraines, anxiety, and brain fog ONCE AND FOR ALL.

Through the Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA) that you take at home, we’ll cover your body’s unique imbalances that are leading to the symptoms you’ve been dealing with.

And I’ll show you EXACTLY what to do to heal those so that you can stop feeling like a prisoner in your own body. 

By examining your mineral imbalances, the HTMA looks at the deeper underlying root causes of what’s going on.

The HTMA test will show you the following:



How fast or slow your metabolism is


Whether you have a magnesium loss and how that can be contributing to your anxiety and depression


Whether you have too much calcium and how that can be contributing to depression, memory issues, fatigue, and weight gain


How well your thyroid is functioning


Whether or not you have copper toxicity (hint: any woman who has taken birth control of any kind is at risk for copper toxicity, even if it's been years since you were last on it)


How copper toxicity can be leading to extreme fatigue, anxiety, migraines, brain fog, insomnia and more


And so much more

Hi, I’m Kim!

I spent YEARS struggling with insomnia, migraines, brain fog, fatigue, and anxiety. 

Even though I’d been an athlete my whole life, worked out regularly, and ate healthy, I still didn’t feel well. 

I saw several doctors and took medications. I tried diets and worked with a nutritionist. I did cleanses, took supplements, worked out more, meditated, and got massages. I felt like I tried EVERYTHING and had minimal success.

But FINALLY, I figured out what was causing all my problems—my birth control. Between the pill and the copper IUD, I spent over 15 years on it. 

Just stopping it didn’t fix the problem, however. Years of birth control use had thrown my body way off balance. 

Through lab testing, I discovered that I had copper toxicity, an iodine deficiency, an imbalance between magnesium and calcium, gut issues that were leading to high levels of inflammation, a slow metabolism, and more. 

More importantly, I knew exactly what my imbalances were so that I could address them and heal. And heal I did. My symptoms literally melted away – even ones that I had been dealing with for years and years. 

And best of all, my health issues never returned. I haven’t taken a prescription medication in years, and I feel better now in my late 30s than I did in my 20s. 

My own healing journey led me to go back and get certified so that I could help women just like you experience the same freedom that I have. 

Here’s what’s included in the program:


The HTMA Test

This lab is shipped to you within 1 business day of registering. You take a few snips from the back of your head in the comfort of your home and ship off to the lab. Once the lab receives your sample, I get the results within 5-12 business days.


3 Questionnaires

You’ll fill out several detailed self-assessments that key me into exactly how you’re feeling. I’ll use these assessments to do a deep analysis and correlate with the lab results to look at the total picture of what’s going on with you so you can connect the dots to why you’ve been feeling the way you have.  


Video Review of Your Results

Before we meet, you’ll receive a video recording of your results that educates you on what your test results mean and how they correlate to your current symptoms. That way, we can spend our time going over your questions and the plan.


A Results & Recommendations Session

Once I have your analysis complete and report written, we’ll get together on a 30 minute call where we’ll go over everything. This will be held via Zoom so I can share my screen with you. 


A Custom 3-Month Plan for Healing

Once I receive your questionnaires and the test results, I’ll analyze the data and put together a custom 3-month plan for healing. You’ll receive a written report and any supplemental materials/links that I recommend as part of it.  

Discount on Supplements for Life

Supplements are typically part of a healing protocol. I partner with FullScript, which is like Amazon but only for supplements. I can give my clients a discount there and you can keep using that even after we’re done working together. I typically find supplements to be cheaper there than anywhere else.

Frequently Asked Questions:


Can I see a sample HTMA test?

Here you go!

Who is this test and program right for?

Honestly, I feel that everyone should take this test.  This is the best valued functional lab test, and it provides a ton of data to provide answers to why you’ve been feeling the way you have. 

Women, especially, have a high chance of having copper toxicity due to long term use of birth control, and this test can help uncover that.

If you are dealing with symptoms and not feeling as good as you once did, then this test is for you. If you’ve ever taken birth control, this is definitely for you. And if you are just curious about what your mineral balances are, then this test is also for you.  

How does this work if we don’t live near each other?

I have clients all over the US and Canada, and, in fact, I don’t have any local clients. Everything is done virtually over Zoom and email.

How long does the process take?

If you mail your test in as soon as you get it, we should be able to have our results & recommendations call 3-4 weeks after investing in the program. It all depends on how quickly you mail your sample in, how long the lab takes to test (they say 5-12 business days but usually it’s not the full 12), and when I will finish my analysis and written report after receiving results. 

While you are waiting for the results, however, you will have a bunch of things that you can get started with that will ultimately prime the body for the customized recommendations that I provide you. So your path to healing actually begins as soon as you purchase.

Can I use color-treated hair?

It’s ideal to wait about 8 weeks after coloring your hair to run the test. However, you can run it after only 3 weeks if you desire.

Can I get tested elsewhere and just have you do an analysis on it?

It depends on what lab you ordered the test from and how long it’s been since you were tested.  The only labs I will analyze are Analytical Research and Trace Elements. Most other labs wash the hair sample which skews the results.

Why a hair test over blood or urine?

A hair test provides the most accurate read of mineral balances and heavy metals in the body. The reason for this is that it’s an average of your levels over a 3-month period. 

A blood or urine test only provides a snapshot of time.  So, for example, you could eat a banana before a blood test and your potassium levels could end up showing up normal or elevated on that test. However, potassium is often the first mineral to be depleted over the long term, so, if you’re dealing with symptoms, you likely have a potassium deficiency. 

Blood and urine tests often don’t show true deficiencies until the minerals have been lost for a very long time, and then it takes a long time to heal from those. 

And as you can see from above, the HTMA also provides a TON of insight into the overall health of multiple systems in the body. 

Why test for minerals?

Trace minerals are essential in countless metabolic functions in all phases of the life process. For example:

  • Zinc is involved in the production, storage, and secretion of insulin and is necessary for growth hormones.
  • Magnesium is required for normal muscular function, especially the heart. A deficiency has been associated with an increased incidence of abnormal heart conditions, anxiety, and nervousness.
  • Potassium is critical for normal nutrient transport into the cell. A deficiency can result in muscular weakness, mild depression, and lethargy.
  • Excess sodium is associated with hypertension, but adequate amounts are required for normal health.
Does this test look for vitamin deficiencies?

Not specifically, but in the words of the late author and noted researcher, Dr. Henry Schroeder, trace elements (minerals) are “…more important factors in human nutrition than vitamins. The body can manufacture many vitamins, but it cannot produce necessary trace minerals or get rid of many possible excesses.”

If you have been tested for your Vitamin D levels, which is pretty common, and it shows up low…that actually tells you a lot. Because Vitamin D is often lost after several other very important minerals have been lost, such as potassium, magnesium, boron, lithium, and more. And the best way to raise vitamin D is to raise all of these key minerals.

What minerals and metals does the HTMA test for?
What causes mineral imbalance?

There are many factors to take into consideration, such as: 

  • Diet – Improper diet through high intake of refined and processed foods, alcohol and fad diets can all lead to a chemical imbalance. Even the nutrient content of a “healthy” diet can be inadequate, depending upon the soil in which the food was grown or the method in which it was prepared. 
  • Stress – Physical or emotional stress can deplete the body of many nutrients while also reducing the capability to absorb and utilize many nutrients. 
  • Medications – Both prescription and over-the-counter medications can deplete the body stores of nutrient minerals and/or increase the levels of toxic metals. These medications include diuretics, antacids, aspirin, and oral contraceptives. 
  • Pollution – From adolescence through adulthood the average person is continually exposed to a variety of toxic metal sources such as cigarette smoke (cadmium), hair dyes (lead), hydrogenated oils (nickel), antiperspirants (aluminum), dental amalgams (mercury and cadmium), copper and aluminum cookware and lead-based cosmetics. These are just a few of the hundreds of sources that can contribute to nutrient imbalances and adverse metabolic effects. 
  • Nutritional Supplements – Taking incorrect supplements or improper amounts of supplements can produce many vitamin and mineral excesses and/or deficiencies, contributing to an overall biochemical imbalance. 
  • Inherited Patterns – A predisposition toward certain mineral imbalances, deficiencies and excesses can be inherited from parents.

What Clients Are Saying:



For years, I struggled with several issues and not feeling my best. I came across a webinar that Kim was offering and decided to take a chance to see what it was all about. I am so thankful I did! I have learned so much about my body and overall health!

I cannot say enough about the positive experience I have had working with Kim. She thoroughly reviewed the results from my HTMA test and came up with a personalized plan for me. I felt supported and validated. She was also very responsive to any questions or concerns that I may have had. I am in the early stages of this new health journey and I am already feeling better!

Kim is passionate about what she does, and I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to improve their overall health and wellbeing!

~ Stephanie, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

I am so grateful for Kim and everything she has done to help me navigate my health journey. I wouldn’t have known where to begin nor where to go without her! She is the most thorough practitioner I have ever worked with, extremely communicative, and such a kind soul. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to improve their health by finding the root cause!

~ Katy, Preschool Teacher

Kim has been such a blessing to my life. Prior to working with Kim, I knew I wasn’t living the lifestyle that would help me to feel and perform at my best, but I didn’t know where to start. I assumed that my health concerns were all a part of getting older, and I just had to learn to adapt. But Kim has taught me how to take back control of my body.

Not only does she care about my health and how I feel, but it sometimes seems as if she knows my body better than I do. Her methods have taught me that I am capable of achieving my best self.

~ Jennifer, Software Trainer

I decided to work with Kim and it’s been the best decision I’ve ever made.

After testing, now I know exactly what my body is lacking and have been on a supplement routine for a few months now. I’ve noticed that I feel so much more energetic…especially in the mornings! My mood has been better…my focus is better….I’m loving this! Also, it is so nice to have somebody in your corner to help you out when a supplement might not work for you or you need a plan B. It’s so nice to have the support!

~ Candice, Medical Coder

I was struggling with physical symptoms possibly caused by my copper IUD and other deficiencies. I scoured the Internet looking for a holistic approach to my ailments and luckily found Kim Heintz. She’s knowledgeable, kind, and relatable as she once experienced many of the issues I have.

After discussing her thorough review of my HTMA results and starting a personalized protocol, I am feeling so much better and look forward to working with Kim to continue on my path to wellness.

~ Rebecca, Financial Assessor
