Kim Heintz on GI Mapping and Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis

On this week’s Stronger Bones Lifestyle Podcast Debi talks to fellow FDN practitioner Kim Heintz about her history with chronic migraines and anxiety and how that health journey led to her to a career as an FDN.

As an FDN who primarily helps her clients reverse debilitating gut issues, Kim’s own life-changing experience is what led her to her career so that she could help others experience the same freedom she has.

Join Kim and Debi as they dive deep in GI Mapping and Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis tests and what they can tell you about your overall health.  Plus the issues with multi vitamins and general cleanses and why you need to “test, not guess.”

"If you're not absorbing your nutrients, you don’t have the energy coming from the food that you’re consuming." [15:33]

"You’ve got to look deeper. In our schooling they say test don’t guess." [19:12]

"Minerals are the spark plugs of the body." [29:33]
