Minerals are the Key to Health, Energy, Even Life Itself.
Mineral Mastery is the quintessential course on copper toxicity and other mineral imbalances, bridging the current education gap on how mineral imbalances affect physical and mental health, and how to use minerals to increase energy, safely detox, and proactively protect health.
Training to Empower Health...
...and Advance Your Practice.
Over the thousands of clients I've worked with, I am continually amazed that this mineral education is so often overlooked in the previous care my clients received. Many of them have spent years going from doctor to doctor, nutritionist to therapist, yet still at a loss as to what may be causing their symptoms.
When we understand the mineral connection to health concerns, and the myriad reasons behind mineral imbalance, we're finally able to find answers to healing and health that otherwise often remain elusive. We also gain a powerful upper hand in better protecting long-term health, proactively.
For anyone in the health field, this will be one of the most eye opening courses you will ever take! Indeed, most of our students proclaim how this course provided "the missing link" in their education, no matter how credentialed they are. If you're already working with minerals, or looking for new perspectives on health, this course provides powerful and LITERALLY LIFE SAVING RESEARCH AND INSIGHTS NOT TAUGHT IN ANY OTHER COURSE, PERIOD! You will never look at blood labs, or HTMA charts, or the conventional approach to treatment the same again. Here you'll discover tools and countless "AHA moments" that put everything into perspective, helping support you and the clients you serve.
Quite simply and honestly, the information this course teaches is far too important NOT to know!
"The Mineral Mastery course should be a compulsory unit in every medical and naturopathic and nutrition school - then we might actually have a healthcare system instead of a disease management one!"
Jo Hainsworth, Health Practitioner

FDN-P, Fitness Trainer, Health Practitioner
“As a Health Practitioner and Fitness Trainer, I want to thank you for your dedication and education! I have been in the health/fitness industry for over 25 years and out of all my education have never been taught how crucial mineral balancing is. It was the missing piece in my own healing journey. The Mineral Mastery course was very informative, put together for anyone to understand...greatly appreciated!”
FDN-P, B.Kin, Performance Coach
“I'm loving the course!! I really appreciate the links you're making between emotional, traumatic and biochemical and the other way around.... (Myself) studying Osteopathy as the bridge to the physiological side of things, your work has really provided more clarity and tangibly to everything, it's really exciting.”
“I enjoyed this course and format very much...this work is so important. I cannot imagine how amazing it would be if every single doctor had to learn about this in medical school.”
...and more student testimonials below...
Functional Nutrition Practitioner, Fitness Coach
“This course was exceptional. Very easy to understand and highlighted so many issues that my current clients are facing. I am excited beyond words to dig into HTMA further to start helping the individuals that put their trust in me. Thank you for being a voice, I will follow your lead!”
BSc, Certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner
“I highly recommend the Mineral Mastery course. The course was an excellent deep dive into Minerals and how to use them not only for myself, but in my nutritional therapy practice. Rick's course does an excellent job of combining how to test, balance the minerals and introducing us to how to detox the Toxic Metals. The course was well paced and the information was presented in an easy to understand format. The length of the instructional videos was easy to do in single sittings and the learning was perfectly paced. Rick is very knowledgeable, passionate and shares this knowledge generously both during the course and after. ”
Functional Nutritionist, FDN-P, HTMA Practitioner
"This was my second time doing the course - it's absolutely exceptional! Thank you so much for your wealth of knowledge and sharing it with us all! "
(Though the course needs to be experienced... our student testimonials really say it best!)
FOR EVERY PRACTITIONER
Why mineral imbalances should be on every health practitioner's radar.
WHOLE BODY HEALH
The mineral connections to the health of our digestive, cardiovascular, musculoskeletal, endocrine systems, and more.
MENTAL HEALTH CONNECTIONS
The direct connections between mineral imbalances and various mental health symptoms such as depression, anxiety, and more. This course offers the bridge connecting the fields of nutrition and psychology.
Why zinc is so important, why nearly everyone is deficient, and also why it's NOT the answer to detoxing excess copper.
Mg, Ca, Io, Se, Na, K, ...
Beyond zinc and copper, we also go deep into magnesium, calcium, sodium, potassium, iron, selenium, iodine, and more, along with the many reasons for imbalance and the health implications that result.
WHAT EVERY WOMAN ON A COPPER IUD SHOULD KNOW
The copper IUD gets prescribed as safe because it's non-hormonal. However, the effects can be just as bad as hormonal birth control. Learn why!
BONUS TRAINING ON HTMA
In a bonus unit on HTMA, we sit down with Dr. Malter, PhD (40 years clinical experience) and navigate Tissue Mineral Analysis data and how HTMA can successfully be applied in clinical practice.
INCREASE YOUR ENERGY
An entire unit is dedicated to addressing energy issues, and how to increase energy by regulating the body's mineral system.
Taught by one of the world's leading experts, this course dives deep into the copper toxicity epidemic that silently affects the health & lives of so many women. (This is vitally important health education for EVERY female!)
THE IMPACT ON RELATIONSHIPS
Learn the mineral imbalances that profoundly affect relationships and emotions, an area off the radar of most relationship counselors.
Why some of the top "Doctor Recommended" supplements can
often make people worse.
Rarely connected mineral factors that influence hormone imbalance - insights that should be on the radar of anyone working to balance hormones.

HOW TO DETOX
We explore the cautions needed when using chelation, and how to support the body to safely detox.
HOW TO TEST MINERAL STATUS
Why blood test results do not represent the body's true mineral status. Learn why looking at cell and tissue levels (HTMA) is so vital.
WHY MORE PEOPLE DON'T KNOW THIS INFORMATION
Most of what is taught in Mineral Mastery goes beyond what most health practitioners are trained in. You'll discover the reasons why.
The VITAMIN D MYTH
While Vitamin D itself is certainly important for health, the fad of high dose supplementation may not only be ineffective, but also dangerous.
Protocols and popular diets that paint everyone with the same brush will work for some, but make others worse. We teach the importance of looking at each person's unique biochemistry for optimal nutrition program design.
"This information can save millions of lives.
We lost touch on how integrated minerals are to the human body. To be healthy, we need to understand this!"

And Even More Love From Our Students...
DHHP, RCST, HTMA Practitioner
“I felt that the course was very informative and well laid out. I plan to listen to the course in its entirety again and take notes this second time. I do think that all people in the health field would benefit from the course. ”
Nicole Ritter, BCHHP, FDN-P, CHC, CLC
"LOVED this course so much!!!!!!! Wish I would have taken this course sooner before wasting my money on other HTMA courses that were not as good!
Lisa Beach, PhD.
“Loved the course! Thank you! I am inspired to really understand the interconnectedness of the minerals and heavy metals, and be able to put that into action (for myself and clients). This course was absolutely the foundation I needed to begin that task of deep understanding and application.”
Holistic Health Practitioner
“Out of all the courses I took, I still find I am coming back to you as I see your quality and have learned best with your instruction. I respect how you source your information and trust you completely as a mentor."
“I do believe that everyone should have this information and I've been sharing this with my clients....Thank you Rick for what you do and for your commitment to get this information out there. ”
Certified Personal Trainer, Cousellor, Sports Nutrition Coach, Reiki Practitioner
“I have been working in the health and wellness field for over 12 years and am certified in Sports Nutrition and Personal Training. I have also gone through Copper Toxicity and all the devastating effects it had on my health.
Nutrition was something I always believed I was well versed and educated in. But that belief changed after I took the Mineral Mastery course.
The world of nutrition focuses so heavily on protein, fats, and carbs. Yet, healing and overall health cannot be optimized without one's minerals working optimally. Likewise, epidemics such as that of copper toxicity continue to wreak havoc on women's health when this information is not taught.
This course was EXTREMELY eye-opening for me not only with regards to my own health and healing but with how I deliver successful service to my clients now as well. I cannot recommend this course enough. The information provided surpasses even what most doctors and health practitioners know.
The value this course has provided me with regards to my own health and the level of service I can now offer my clients is FAR beyond the cost of the course itself."
Functional Medicine Practitioner, Precision Nutrition & Health Coach, Kettlebell Sport World Champion
"I learned a lot, which has added to my library of learning for my clients. I would highly recommend this course to others!"
Dr. Richard Malter, PhD
Clinical Psychologist & Nutritionist (retired), with 40 years
specializing in copper toxicity & mineral-based psychology
“I don't know of any college, university, or medical research center that even comes closeto the body of copper information that Rick [Mineral Mastery instructor] has brought together."
Rick Buchikos, MS, CFMP, FDN
Master of Science in Human Nutrition & Functional Medicine, Functional Diagnostic Nutritionist, C.H.E.K. Practitioner Level III, Performance Enhancement Specialist
"Great course Rick! Not one wasted moment. This course certainly provided another valuable layer of learning in my journey towards mastering HTMA. A lot of dots connected and I thank you for that."
“This course was incredible.Eye opening. It makes me realize that in an attempt to correct my health issues (on my own because no one has been able to help) for years, how much more damage I’ve probably done. This course was finally able to describe WHY I was having the reactions I was when I would take a specific vitamin, for example, that I was always told was good for me. I strongly suggest this course to everyone. I wish the whole world could experience it. Rick’s passion through the course is evident. Once taught, it seems like all of this should be common sense and it’s an outrage that so many of us stay sick. Working in healthcare for 10+ years has led me to be passionate about this topic, so I appreciate someone who has the same passion and yet much more knowledge about it!
Rebecca Faulkner, MSN, PMHNP-BC, RD
Board-certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner
"I have to drop this note and just let you know that I AM LOVING MINERAL MASTERY! My background is in nutrition in addition to being a psychiatric nurse practitioner, and I'm blown away! I was not taught this, not even at the master's level."
Doctor of Osteopathy
“I’ve just completed the mineral mastery course..LOVED IT! Thank you so much for such an informative course. It turned a lot of what I thought I knew, on its head! But it all made so much sense and seems so obvious now. The information was given in a clear and considered manner. This course is a must!”
"Your course is phenomenal. Anybody who works with patients really should take this course!
...The whole time (taking the course) I was like 'I wish I had this knowledge when I was treating my patients'. There's so much in there that's so useful...It is priceless info!"

Despite his earlier "mainstream" nutritional training, Rick's deep dive into the world of minerals began after a health tragedy that happened to a loved one. He subsequently dedicated many years to the research of ‘Copper Toxicity’, keenly aware of the effects this widespread mineral imbalance has (especially on women’s health) and the lack of understanding in the medical community.
Today, as the founder of the world's #1 support and education site for Copper Toxicity (www.coppertoxic.com), Rick continues to be a strong advocate for awareness of not only the copper toxicity epidemic, but also mineral imbalance in general. Rick works in clinical practice designing HTMA-based mineral balancing programs for clients worldwide. He is a published author, international speaker and researcher, and nutritional educator. Rick is also at the forefront of HTMA education,, and is frequently hired to teach HTMA principals and mineral-based health concepts to various health practitioners, including a large number of Functional Diagnostic Nutritionists, Functional Medicine Doctors, HTMA Practitioners, Osteopaths, Naturopaths, Gut Healing Experts, Health Coaches, and more. Rick is passionate about empowering people with this essential health and nutrition knowledge, and has made it his mission to awaken nutritional consciousness through education such as that provided through the Mineral Mastery course to include the pivotal role that mineral imbalances play in physical and mental health, energy, and relationships.
