1-Month Startup Process

Old habits, beliefs, and attitudes are a challenge to break.  But how can we replace them with supportive new ones?

Psychological research has found that it can take 30 days to establish healthy new habits, 60 days to master them, and 90 days to make them automatic and permanent features of our daily lives without effort.

RESULTS:  We have developed a proven and highly effective startup process for new clients through a principled, experiential, and knowledge-based approach to diet and lifestyle.

TIME:  It takes TIME for us to get to know you and your patterns, and for your body to experience healing once it receives the necessary nutrients and support.  You will have plenty of time to ask questions, learn, keep in touch between sessions, and explore your own unique journey with confidence.

TOOLS:  We provide a range of tools, metrics, and personalized practices to support the biochemical, individual needs of each client.

What's included in the process?

1.  Initial Interview Session

In this 2 hour session, we review your extensive intake materials, including a 5-Day Food-Mood-Energy Journal, a personal history, and a 320-questions health symptom questionnaire that serves as a pretest for the program.  This reveals patterns in your body and lifestyle, and provides the direction of treatment.  

Next, we conduct a physical functional evaluation to demonstrate what nutrients your body requires right now.  We test every nutrient supplement that we recommend for you to take.  We end the session by collecting a small hair sample to send to the lab to determine your tissue mineral status and toxic heavy metal burden.

2.  Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA)

Once we have the results of your HTMA (after 10-14 days of submittal), we will schedule a 90-minute phone followup session to review the results.  The HTMA validates the direction of treatment we began in the Initial Interview Session, and often point out additional nutrient needs, psychological tendencies, and/or energy patterns in your body that require specific attention.  This is an excellent scientific baseline to measure future progress.

3.  Followup Coaching Session

The final 90-minute session is similar to the Initial Interview Session in format.  We will review another 5-Day Food-Mood-Energy Journal, discuss the effects of the diet and lifestyle changes you have implemented, review another online symptom questionnaire as a comparative post-test of your progress.  We will conduct another functional evaluation to confirm that your current nutrient supplements and diet are working or if they need modification.  Lastly, we will detail a plan to support your ongoing health.  

The body changes constantly throughout the healing process.  We highly recommend additional followup sessions for periodic check-in and support.

3 Common Missteps in Restoring Health


Trying to out-run demonstrated nutrient imbalances or poor eating practices with more intense exercise, yoga, or meditation sessions.

We begin the healing process by identifying nutritional deficiencies and building up your functional foundations.


Trying to out-eat chronic stressors, chemical toxins, negative attitudes, or harmful lifestyle habits with yet another "perfect diet".

We address the Whole Person throughout the process, not just the parts, including diet, toxic exposures, beliefs and lifestyle factors.

Not listening

Trying to activate your full body-mind-spirit potential without first listening to your body's needs and responding appropriately.  


We help you to develop a functional understanding of your body, a powerful bridge to long-term health and deeper life questions.

Are You Feeling Toxic?

Reset your system with a Metabolic Cleanse!

Biotics Research, our preferred label for nutritional and functional dietary supplements, now offers a powerful 15-Day Metabolic Cleanse Program.  This is especially effective for individuals with high blood sugar, high cholesterol, and symptoms of chronic inflammation.

“I would now assert that the
primary driver of chronic
disease in the industrialized
world is environmental toxins.
I want to be real clear. I am
not saying that nutritional
deficiencies are no longer a
problem. What I am saying
is that we’ve added a bigger
problem because we are
poisoning ourselves with
metals and chemicals.”
— Dr. Joe Pizzorno, author of The Toxic Solution, in an interview with Dr. Mark Hyman

This program is designed to gently clear toxic accumulations from your liver and other detox pathways, opening up your whole system to have better energy levels, stamina, focus, and immune function.

Our clients have been thrilled with the results they have experienced, especially when combined with a personalized Zenshin Institute program.

One happy client recently wrote in about the 15-Day Metabolic Cleanse:  "I'm doing so much better...Feel energized and I dropped 6.5 lbs as of this morning since I started!" ~Roy L.

Take your health to the next level with Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA)

Multiple factors affect your health, but mineral deficiencies and heavy metal toxicity lead directly to disorders of the cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, muscular, skeletal, neurological, immune and endocrine systems. 

Hair mineral and toxin levels provide a comprehensive picture of the inner workings of your cellular biochemistry over several months at a time.  These patterns deeply affect the Whole Person:  our total expressions of body, mind, emotions, and spirit.   

Who is HTMA for?

  • EVERYONE, both children and adults.  Whether you are struggling with health-related issues today or are looking to prevent future illnesses, virtually everyone today has nutrient mineral imbalances and disruptive exposures to toxic heavy metals. 
  • Individuals on medications, including anti-depressants, mood stabilizers, and stimulants.  Medications, especially when used for more than a few months at a time, almost guarantee nutrient mineral imbalances in our bodies.
  • Individuals struggling with energy fluctuations, blood sugar dysregulation, and sleep disorders.
  • Anyone suffering from depression, addictions, ADD/ADHD or other neurological disorders.
  • Highly sensitive people with delicate digestive systems and reactive immune systems, who continue to struggle despite working on eating well.   
  • Individuals looking for a clear bio-individual plan (diet, supplements, lifestyle, etc.) that would address his/her specific, demonstrated physiological needs, NOT a "shotgun" approach

How can we help you?

Metal Detector Filled-50.png

"According to my doctor and my blood work there is nothing wrong with me, but I still feel horrible!   Could my health concerns be the result of toxic heavy metals?"

"How is my spirituality connected to nutrition and my overall health?  I'm more interested in awareness practices like meditation and yoga.  Why start with the food on my plate?"


"How long do I have to implement 'healthy lifestyle' changes before I see results and start to feel better?"

"My back always hurts.  Massage, PT, acupuncture, and chiropractic adjustments help, BUT they just don't seem to stick.  Could this be related to nutrition?"

What Our Clients Are Saying

I didn’t start off on this journey with a health or fitness goal in mind. I had reached a point where all I wanted was to be able to live my life without falling apart. Since meeting Chris and Masami I’ve seen severe symptoms of chronic disease reverse, and have become not only much healthier, but a greater version of myself as a whole. I’ve transformed with the help of these two, and I continue to make strides and discoveries every single day.
— Gavin C., Kapaa, Hawaii
All the stars aligned...and I happened to meet Chris and Masami in serendipitous circumstances. They mentioned in passing that they seem to be the last resort for many of their clients because they’ve exhausted all their options. Little did I know that I would follow suit. After getting a heart-breaking diagnosis from my doctors (Type II Diabetes), I was determined to turn my health around, and do it without taking conventional Western medicine/medication. Enter Chris and Masami. I was diligent and disciplined about the direction they gave me and follow all their advice strictly. My diagnoses were reversed after 7 months. I’m continuing to work with them to stay on track and work on other health anomalies. In the time I’ve been working with them, my family, friends, and peers have also remarked how young I look - which was a great added bonus that I was not anticipating. I have dropped 30 pounds and look much healthier as a result. I cannot be more thankful to Chris and Masami. I only wish more people would realize how much Chris and Masami can help.
— Mike S., Chicago, IL
When I first consulted Chris and Masami in late 2014, I was suffering a host of physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual dis-ease. Painfully aware only of the physical, I just wanted to feel better. Through their hands-on sessions and applying their wisdom at home I felt much better within a couple of weeks. But it turns out the physical “feeling better” is foundational for a much broader wellness. This “coming into one’s wholeness” is the real work Chris and Masami perform and facilitate through their Zenshin Method, a dynamic and evolving process.
— Dee C., Arvada, CO
By focusing on the nutritional quality and macronutrient balance of shared meals at our fire station, the entire crew has seen improvements in our sleep, focus, energy levels, camaraderie, and as a bonus, even weight loss. It’s important that we firefighters are fit and healthy so we can serve the public at our highest level.
— Steve S., Wheat Ridge, CO
I just wanted to thank you both once again for all of the help you have given me and my family. I could not have done our big trip without my health. We canoed 60 miles in 6 days and 5 nights!
— Will H., Boulder, CO
I would like to let everyone know that before I started seeing Chris at Zenshin Institute I had no energy. I was consuming large amounts of caffeine and sugar hoping to get the energy I was looking for, but all I got was major crashes. After going over my diet with Chris and analyzing my hair sample we discovered that my diet was doing the opposite that I intended. Chris recommended supplements in addition to incorporating more vegetables and healthier alternatives to my diet. I feel better than I have in years. Chris and Masami are both wonderful, knowledgeable individuals who take the time to listen and work with you on a program to maximize your health. I highly recommend them to everyone I meet.
— Terri O., Lakewood, CO
