Rick Fischer

RickFischerCertified Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis Practitioner

Mineral imbalances are at the root of many chronic health concerns. Minerals help regulate our thyroid, adrenal, digestive, cardiovascular, and musculoskeletal functioning. They also affect neurotransmitter levels in the brain, thereby affecting mental health too.  When our minerals are out of balance (with deficiencies or toxicities - which also includes toxic metals), so too will our health be.  Since blood is homeostatic and constantly works to return to a safe range, a blood test of your minerals can show ‘normal’ even in the case of severe deficiency or toxicity occurring in the cells and tissues.  This is where Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis can shine, as it reflects cellular and stored tissue status and can show mineral imbalances that are occurring long before they might ever appear in the blood.

The science of nutritional balancing using Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA) was developed in the 1970s by Drs Eck and Watts.Today it remains the primary test of choice by the US Environmental Protection Agency for detecting heavy metals in the body, and is a powerful tool for preventative and corrective nutritional program design.

Rick’s unique path to becoming one of Canada’s leading HTMA specialists began with a health tragedy that happened to a loved one. Subsequently dedicating several years to the research of ‘copper toxicity’, his work was discovered and praised by one of the world’s foremost HTMA experts – a now retired clinical psychologist and nutritionist who learned HTMA directly from Dr Eck & Watts, and who successfully used HTMA in clinical practice for over 3 decades. He was impressed enough to take Rick under his wing and personally mentor him in the science of HTMA for nutritional programming and understanding both the physical as well as psychological manifestations of mineral imbalance.  Discovering how widespread not only copper toxicity is but also mineral imbalances are as a whole, how these imbalances impair health, and how little understanding there is of this in the general medical community, these factors all further fuelled Rick’s desire to continue his ongoing research and being of service to people.  He has since brought together an international ‘team’ of HTMA experts and researchers to further share and expand knowledge and awareness in this field.  Today, as founder of the #1 support site for copper toxicity, Rick continues to be a strong advocate for awareness of that epidemic, while also designing mineral balancing programs for clients worldwide.  For the HTMA lab test itself, Rick works with Trace Elements Inc (one of only two testing labs worldwide that follow proper protocol allowing for the most accurate mineral level readings).  Rick is also a published author, speaker, educator on minerals, and graduate of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. 

HTMA and mineral balancing is at the core of Rick’s work, and he sees it as a privilege and a duty to being a global leader in awareness and education in this field.  Some of the more common concerns he works with (and for which HTMA can be a powerful screening tool) include thyroid imbalance, adrenal fatigue, digestive disorders, (preventative) cardiovascular health, bone integrity, as well as stress, depression and anxiety.  He is thrilled to be a part of the Advanced Healing Arts team to better service the local Vancouver and area community.

I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) and a Registered Social Worker (RSW). 

I obtained my Master’s Degree in Social Work at the University of the Fraser Valley in 2016 with a focus on Incorporating Holistic Approaches to Treating Substance Misuse. I became a RCC shortly afterwards. 

My areas of interest are in:

1)      Addiction

2)      Depression & Anxiety

3)      Trauma

4)      Grief & Loss

5)      Stress

6)      Nutrition

I use cognitive behavioural therapy and solution focussed therapy. I take a person centered approach as well as a strength based approach. I incorporate mindfulness practices and positive thinking into my practice.  

I have experience working as an addictions counsellor facilitating group therapy as well as 1 on 1 counselling. I worked mainly with individuals struggling with things like substance misuse, anxiety, depression, trauma, suicidal ideation and grief and loss. I take a holistic approach to working with individuals and focus on one’s bio psychosocial & spiritual aspects of self. 

I have over 10 years’ experience working as a social worker with children, youth and families who often struggled with trauma, mental health and/or addiction. 

I have taken the sacred journey training, from addiction to connection, at the Satir Institute in Surrey which focuses on the Personal Iceberg Metaphor of the Satir Model. I often use this model when working with individuals.  

I studied Holistic Nutrition at the Institute of Holistic Nutrition in Vancouver and include this knowledge in my work when relevant and helpful to my clients. I also completed 3 months of rooted nutrition cooking classes and share this knowledge with individuals who are interested in learning healthier cooking options. 

I am available most Saturdays and some Sundays. My cost is $100 per hour with a sliding scale option for those on low income.

Susanne Rontu

SusanneSusanne began her journey into yoga after taking her first yoga class in 1997. Susanne fell in love with the practice, after realizing that she had been doing yoga without knowing it during her childhood. Her passion grew, and in 2005 she completed her 200hr Yoga Teacher Training. Since then she has taken numerous courses including Kids Yoga, Prenatal Yoga, and Restorative Yoga. Susanne continues to develop her practice and instruction techniques, and just finished a three year, 800 hour Yoga Therapy Training, as well as Madhuri’s Ayurveda and Yoga Certificate.

Susanne believes that through yoga we begin to understand and feel a sense of contentment, and consequently we can understand and live in harmony inside ourselves and with others, naturally making an improvement on the world. Susanne’s passion is to share the positive effects yoga has had on her life in hopes of continuing this positive effect among others.

Yoga therapy empowers you in the healing process. We will work individually with what’s happening with you at the moment, to assist you in a unique way to support your healing process. In yoga therapy, the postures are adapted and allowing your specific needs to be met. During private yoga therapy sessions we will do gentle movements to re-pattern dysfunctional movements, alignment, breath and meditation practices.

Please feel free to contact Susanne at  or call 604-771-2720 to book your private session, or go to the website solminahealingyoga.com for more information.
