I get a lot of questions about the difference between Myers Detox Protocol (formerly known as Mineral Power) and a basic Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA). Why is it so much more expensive? How is it different than jut doing a hair test? I put together this post to help explain the difference.
Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis, or HTMA, is a simple process whereby a small sample of hair is tested to reveal your mineral deficiencies and heavy metal toxicities. The hair is tested because it is one of many places the body dumps excess minerals and heavy metals for storage away from vital organs.
A lot of practitioners do this kind of test. But a hair mineral analysis is only as good as the person reading the test and the supplements that are given to correct the issues on the test and detox the metals. Not to mention the follow up support. That is the MOST important aspect of any detox program.
What Sets Myers Detox Protocol Apart from other HTMA’s
Allow me to explain exactly what sets the Myers Detox Protocol (formerly known as Mineral Power) apart from a typical HTMA. The Myers Detox Protocol starts with a hair test, or HTMA. But includes so much more.
Many practitioners do an HTMA ONLY and that’s that. This is a major problem because you cannot see all of a person’s toxic metals with just an HTMA. You must also do urine and stool metals tests.
And it’s very important to look at a client’s medical tests or perform other functional medical tests to troubleshoot various aspects of a person’s underlying health issues.
With other practitioners you might get a consult and a supplement list, maybe a diet to follow, but not a comprehensive cutting edge program like Myers Detox Protocol. I have extensive tools to help support clients on their program. But the support doesn’t end there: we teach you the fundamental tools you need to improve your health…for life.
You must have support for success on any program, especially a detox program. This cannot be stressed enough. Detox takes work and scary things can happen.
- I have heard many clients complain that they get an HTMA or other functional medical test, yet can’t get an email returned if they have an issue or simple question. I don’t think that’s right. With the Myers Detox Protocol you are provided unlimited email support with your practitioner. Many times the email is returned within a few hours.
- You enjoy webinars two times per month about various aspects of the program, new things added to the program, and what I am experimenting with. At the end you can call in and ask questions. There is a backlog of all webinars to which you can listen.
- 25 part (and counting) weekly video series that begins when you purchase the program. You cannot impart what needs to be done for a program like this during a one hour consult. So I wanted to provide yet another means of communicating important aspects of the program and address FAQ.

You are given a customized supplement list based on testing to target your specific nutrient deficiencies, metal toxicities, and health conditions.
I am a supplement fanatic. I use only the very best supplements from many different brands. And am constantly meeting with the brightest minds and CEO’s of cutting edge supplement companies to seek out even better supplements. I am always on the hunt.
I am not bound by one brand or the supplements provided by one of the HTMA labs, which I think are not of ideal quality. I found that many HTMA practitioners do not provide supplements that address all of the metal toxicities that myself or many of my clients have; furthermore, they provide NO MEANS of ridding them of all their toxicities. In order to give this to my clients, it has taken years of research and consulting with metal toxicology experts from around the world.
Targeted supplement lists are also provided to address specific health issues from which clients suffer – again, which are largely ignored on a typical HTMA program: Sleep and Anxiety, PMS, Cold and Flu, Heart Health, Leaky gut, Parasite Cleanse, Yeast Cleanse, Bacterial Dysbiosis, Diabetes or Blood Sugar Issues.
You get a detailed diet to follow – The Modern Paleo Diet – that is based in science. I have found that many diets provided with a hair mineral analysis based program are NOT based in science or are very limited.
I encourage clients to explore what works for THEIR body. Everyone is individual. I encourage clients to do testing for food sensitivities, as this is the most accurate way to find the foods that don’t work for you. The Modern Paleo Diet serves as a template, but everyone must find what works for them. I provide steps on how to do this. Note, the Modern Paleo Diet is NOT a typical Paleo diet.
You get 10 eguides on various topics, including the Toxic Metals Sources and Symptoms Guide. You also get a customized Myers Detox Protocol after your consult with articles about:
- Your metals toxicities
- Your mineral deficiencies
- Your health conditions
- Detox Protocols
- How to Detox your Personal Care Products
- How to Detox your Home
- Recommended Additional Testing, if needed
- Stress Relief Tips
- Links to all the Support options on Myers Detox Protocol
Each client has a portal where they can access all their tests and supplement lists at any time. This is also HIPPA compliant so their medical information is secure and confidential. Here you can upload all your medical tests that we read prior to your appointment to further customize your supplement protocol.
Conveniently, you don’t have to contact your practitioner and wait for them to get back to you if you’ve misplaced your supplement list or test results.
You can’t detox someone using only a Hair Mineral Analysis, but you can accomplish a LOT with this test. An HTMA doesn’t show all toxic metals. I recommend everyone do a Urine metals and/or Stool metals test to further uncover all of one’s toxicities. Some metals come out in the hair, some best in the urine, some best in the stool.
Many HTMA practitioners cannot interpret or do other functional or medical tests, further limiting their ability to help you with your various health conditions. You must look at an individual as whole, not merely look at an HTMA.
Additionally, my clients can do many types of functional medical tests. These help to provide baseline and recovery indicators. They also provide a means to further refine your supplement protocols and enhance your healing. Tests include:
- Dutch Urine hormones test to assess hormones and cortisol levels
- Spectracell test, which shows the nutrition levels in your cells
- Liver Detox Ability test that shows your liver’s ability to handle a detox program
- GPL-TOX chemical tests if you wish to assess your chemical levels
- Organic Acids test to find oxalates, which if you have, you should NOT do a detox program until this issue is resolved.
- And many more!
Mineral Power is the only detox and HTMA program that employs quantum energy medicine. This program employs a NES Heatlh energy scan that detects the highest priorities in your body that need addressing.
NES Health is the future of medicine, based on the life’s work of Dr. Peter Fraser. It is based in the science of quantum physics and the body’s meridians. NES Health is frankly the most promising program I have ever come across to address the body’s health issues at the quantum level – the energy level. You can learn more about the science of energy by watching the feature length film The Living Matrix. Or here is the condensed 15 min version.
New to the program, this addresses the body’s energy field – the field that delivers information to all your cells. When any of your body’s and organ’s energy fields are blocked, information for how your cells and body are supposed to operate is blocked. Health issues result. Freeing an individual from blocked energy resolved pain, disease, emotional and sleep issues, to name a few – all in a paradigm completely proven by science that is almost completely ignored by the mainstream medical community.
Information given to all cells is received by energy. This is absolutely proven beyond a doubt. Disease is scrambled information as a result of energy blockages. NES Health delivers correct information to cells in unique ways.
The energy field in the body controls and dictates the physical body. Many clients seeking my help are too sick to detox or can’t handle detox supplements (or any supplements at all). Many have multiple health diagnoses. They must begin with the basics – uncovering and addressing the blocked energy pathways in their body to prep their body for detox and the enhance nutrient absorption, not to mention the multitude of benefits to health that it imparts.
The results I’ve had myself on NES Health and the stories I have heard of people on this program – people who have been sick for years who are now completely well – have been nothing short of astonishing.
Meet Our Medical Director
Dr. Bruce Jones is the medical director of Myers Detox Protocol. He has 35 years of experience as a practicing medical doctor and has two advanced degrees in nutrition and horticulture. Due to his own health crisis, and that of his daughter (after suffering terribly from a doctor attempting to detox her incorrectly), he has researched minerals, nutrition, and metal toxicology for decades.
His supplement protocols used on the Myers Detox Protocol for detoxing metals are the most cutting edge I have encountered. They are also based on his years of research. I consult with him on tough cases.
Dr. Jones and I are currently developing The Detox Institute that will include an HTMA and detox certification program based on his research. There will be a Level 1 for non-licensed practitioners and a more advanced Level 2 for medical doctors and licensed practitioners. Look for The Detox Institute to Launch in 2018 with these and other courses.
Meet Our Health Coaches
Wendy Myers, FDN-P, is the founder of MyersDetox.com. She is a functional diagnostic nutritionist and NES practitioner in Los Angeles, CA. She attended the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York and has a degree in Entrepreneurship from the University of Southern California. She uses Hair Mineral Analysis and other functional medical tests to design custom Myers Detox programs. This is an individualized targeted nutrient therapy program to facilitate toxic metal and chemical detox, heal the adrenals and thyroid, regain energy and brain function and reverse and prevent disease.
As you can see, the effort, research, and time that has gone into this program has been exhaustive, expensive and thorough, hence the price of the program. With the Myers Detox Protocol you are getting a lot of service and support. It’s not just a Hair Mineral Analysis!
My goal with my detox and healing program, the Myers Detox Protocol (formerly known as Mineral Power), and my website MyersDetox.com, is to illustrate how to live a healthy lifestyle within the context of our modern toxic environment.
The future of supplementation entails testing to customize supplements to exactly what your body needs. With customized supplementation, you heal your body and can achieve your highest level of health and functioning. The goal is a state of health where one feels their best. This is exactly the goal of my program MineralPower.com.
I don’t believe in a one-size fits all program. Your body chemistry is one-of-a-kind. And so should your supplements and detox program. With Myers Detox, you get the exact supplements needed for YOU.
Mineral Power is a precise approach to supplements. A multivitamin is the shotgun approach to supplementation. With the Myers Detox Protocol you get the sniper approach – exactly what you need to put your body back into balance.
And it is unlike any HTMA or detox program around!
