She is passionate about educating the public on the importance of long term detoxing considering our toxic world. She healed her own health issues through hair mineral analysis and developed a unique detox and supplement program.
Wendy’s interest in nutrition began with the death of her father from oesophageal 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.
Wendy Myers founded myersdetox.com to communicate her research to the public in the areas of metal toxicology, detoxification, supplements and nutrition.
She is a functional diagnostic nutritionist in Los Angeles. She uses Hair Mineral Analysis and other functional medical tests to design her custom Myers Detox Protocol. This is an individualised 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.
Wendy is also the creator of Mitochondria Detox, the only supplement kit on the market that helps you to remove toxic metals that cause fatigue. Wendy’s site myersdetox.com aims to inform you about how to achieve optimum health, energy and vitality.
