Micro-nutrients with Mira and Jason Calton
Bookmark and Share
The importance of micro-nutrients cannot be underestimated. To help us delve deeper into this topic we’ve brought in Mira and Jason Calton authors of the book The Micro-nutrient Miracle. For so long doctors thought that if the nutrients were in the blood and they were good, then you were good, but with research into the micro-nutrients, it has become apparent that some nutrients aren’t getting inside the cell as easily as others. This causes nutrient deficiencies on a cellular level and the specific nutrient deficiency can vary from person to person.

Mira Calton
Mira Calton, CN, FAAIM, DCCN, CMS, CPFC, BCIH is a Licensed Certified Nutritionist, a Fellow of the American Association of Integrative Medicine, a Diplomate of the College of Clinical Nutrition, a Board Certified Micronutrient Specialist, Certified Personal Fitness Chef, and is Board Certified in Integrative Health. She holds a Diploma in Comprehensive Nutrition from Huntington College of Health Sciences, and has completed the Yale University School of Medicine’s OWCH (Online Weight Management Counseling for Healthcare Providers) program and sits on the American Board of Integrative Health (ABIH). Mira’s interest in the world of nutrition came by way of personal experience. Prior to beginning her life in the nutritional spotlight, she owned and ran her own successful public relations firm in Manhattan specializing in high-end fashion, film and restaurant promotion. She traveled and lectured extensively throughout Canada and the United States to large corporate clients such as Johnson and Johnson, Price Waterhouse Coopers, CitiGroup and ING direct. However, her bustling career came to an abrupt halt when she was diagnosed with severe osteoporosis at the age of 30. No longer able to run the thriving public relations firm that she had worked so hard to build, Mira went on a mission outside of the traditional medical community to find an answer to her dismal diagnosis. Her drive and determination led her all the way to Orlando, Florida where she met nutritional guru, Jayson Calton. The two worked together to create a drug-free, micronutrient based program, which not only completely reversed Mira’s advanced osteoporosis, but also inspired them both to make the study of micronutrient deficiency the focus of their lives.
