Missy Beavers, MS

Missy and her husband, Willie, purchased the Health Habit in 2009.She has a Master's Degree in Traditional Nutrition and enjoys helping people reach optimal health through diet and lifestyle choices.  She is also a Zyto practitioner and utilizes this technology to help create programs tailored to the individual.     

 At 8 years old she was diagnosed with Hashimoto Thyroiditis which resulted in rapid weight gain and metabolic disturbance.  This diagnosis shaped her career as she sought to heal herself through nutrition and lifestyle changes.  She now specializes in metabolic disorders including thyroid problems, diabetes, PCOS, as well as autoimmune conditions,  and cancer, which all begin with leaky gut.  

In 2009, just two weeks after purchasing the Health Habit, Willie was diagnosed with Leukemia and later received a bone marrow transplant.  Missy helped ease the burden of treatment through nutrition and supplementation. 

Willie celebrated 6 years after transplant in January of 2019 and remains cancer free!

Their greatest joy in life is their 2 year old son.

Let's Work Together!!!


    Over 2500 years ago Hippocrates taught us that ALL disease begins in the gut. Modern research has verified the truth of this with the discovery that 70-80% of our immune cells are produced in the gut! If your gut function isn't great then your absorption of nutrients and production of quality cells aren't either and that leads to a host of diseases.

The equation is simple:
Heal the gut = Heal the disease

    If you would have asked me 6 months ago if it is possible to get off of thyroid medication and feel like a total rock star I would have laughed and told you that it's simply impossible!! This was true for me, at the time, because I had spent the previous 27 years trying to get off of my own thyroid prescriptions without any success. 


     In 2018 I began implementing a new gut healing protocol for myself and my clients and we have seen MIRACLES happen.  People are reversing decades of diseases and discovering a life that is free from pain, chronic illness and prescription medications.

The best news of all: I am now free from thyroid medication after 27 years of taking it!

    I firmly believe that all things are possible when we change out mindset, heal the gut and begin nourishing our bodies.

    We are now ready to introduce this revolutionary protocol to YOU!!! I only allow a limited number of people to enroll at a time so I can be available and present to those who are in the process of healing. 

Enrollment is currently open!!

    Let's work together and make 2019 your year of miracles!

Change your multivitamin,

Change you life!!!

Most multivitamins on the market today are ineffective.  They function under the "More is better" mentality and include so many vitamins and minerals that they become ineffective.  When the wrong nutrients are combined, they compete for absorption in the gut.  

  • Zinc competes with copper
  • Vitamin A can decrease Vitamin D absorption
  • Calcium binds to nearly EVERYTHING
  • And the list goes on and on.....

The Nutreince multivitamin system made by Calton Nutrition solves these problems by separating the competing nutrients into a two part delivery system which come in easy to absorb, powdered packets that are taken twice a day. 

We recommend these vitamins to EVERYONE, but especially to those with impaired gut function as these vitamins are the most absorbable, bio available forms on the market.

If are currently experiencing and of the following symptoms, then this multivitamin is for you:

  • Mood Swings
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Poor energy
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Osteporosis/Ostepenia
  • Food cravings
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Difficulty losing weight
  • High cholesterol
  • Declining memory

There at 58 packets per box and we carry the following flavor combinations:

  • Orange/Fruit Punch
  • Lime/Berry
  • Vanilla Chai/Molten Chocolate
  • Or easy absorb capsule version                                  (4 caps in AM, 4 caps in PM)

$49.95 per box
