The lady who cuts my hair must think I’m a freak.

It seems like every time I visit her for a haircut, I’m politely requesting that she save several clumps of my hair clippings for me to place in a small envelope and mail to my friend Wendy Myers.

Why am I mailing my hair?

Because Wendy is the expert when it comes to something called “hair mineral analysis”. And she doesn’t stop there: she does urine and stool too, so I sent her that way last month, and she was able to reveal a host of health information we can find from our hair, our urine and our stool – all topics that we address on this podcast.

Wendy is a functional diagnostic nutritionist (FDN), a certified holistic health coach (CHHC), and the founder of Liveto110. She attended the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York and has a degree in Entrepreneurship from the University of Southern California. She is certified in Hair Mineral Analysis for the purpose of designing programs for clients to correct their metabolism and body chemistry with customized targeted nutrient therapy.

Wendy’s interest in nutrition began with the death of her father from esophageal cancer. Intuitively, she knew his chemo, radiation, and ten medications killed him prematurely. She vowed to find out what made him sick, why he died, what role medications played in his demise, and how she could avoid the same fate. The more Wendy learned, the more she realized that all the answers to health do not lie in our medical system.

    Ben- i know you worship structured water and wondered what you thought of this chemist who COMPLETELY debunks all of it pointing to tons of research and conversing pointing out there’s NO credible research to support it. I’d love your scientific expertise!

    1. Admittedly, there is very little research behind structured water. Most of it is done at Dr. Pollock's laboratory up at University of Washington. In vivo research studies are weak. I've seen enough in vitro studies myself to want to consume it as a natural form of water. You should also listen to my interview with Dr. Thomas Cowan in which we discussed this too.
