Mira and Jayson Calton are super passionate and knowledgable about micronutrients, and my podcast recording with them is a taste of the fun and adventure they've created in their lives.
Mira was a busy publicist in New York City, living the dream, except for increasing, debilitating pain. She was diagnosed with advanced osteoporosis, and advised to move home with her family and recuperate.
In her search to figure out her osteoporosis, she met Jayson Calton, a clinical nutritionist who did not specialize in osteoporosis, but agreed to dive into this project with Mira. Her osteoporosis was completely reversed, and meanwhile she and Jayson fell in love and got married.
You have to listen to the podcast to hear about how they have only spent 8 hours apart in 12 years together, and how they make that work to build an amazing life and business.
They journeyed for 7 years to 134 countries to learn the diets and lifestyles of many cultures, and synthesized that information into books and supplements with lots of research behind them.
The podcast covers the tenets of their new book, The Micronutrient Miracle: The 28 Day Plan to Lose Weight, Increase Your Energy, and Reverse Disease.
"It's all about education, not limitation." Mira Calton
Their new book is highly educational, but also very practical. There are quizzes to find out where you might be deficient, and plans to follow (including meals for a whole month) for different health goals.
In this episode, we talk about:
- How BPA is in more places than you'd think, and how it raises your insulin levels
- How adequate vitamin C can moderate your stress response
- Why iron should be taken away from most other supplements
- The best form of chromium (it's polynicotinate)
- The most important nutrients for thyroid health
