In this week’s bonus episode, Nathalie talks to Lisa Pitel-Killah about the HTMA (Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis) test and mineral imbalances. She explains the complicated relationship different minerals play and how they work off each other as well as why blood tests aren’t always accurate. She covers all the basics that we sometimes forget to look at in this world of peptides, but that really are the foundation to health.
