On this episode of the Wealthy Wellthy podcast, I interview my good friends Mira and Jayson Calton, a couple whose work in the field of nutrition inspires me. When Mira was 30 years old, her body started shutting down. After a few tests, she found out that she had advanced osteoporosis, which was shocking considering her age and her relatively healthy lifestyle. In her search for answers and for alternative treatments to the extreme medications prescribed to her, she met Dr. Jayson Calton. Jayson was interested in Mira’s case and the two began to take a deeper look at nutrition, specifically macronutrients and micronutrients.
They realized that Mira’s body simply was not absorbing the micronutrients that were so essential to healthy bones, but they weren’t sure why. Before long, they got married and began to travel around the world to determine how people living in rural or primitive settings don’t seem to struggle with issues like osteoporosis and diabetes. This research has taken them to 145 countries and all 7 continents and has left them with some key insights.
Many people believe that whatever diet they are following contains everything they need for a healthy life, but in their very nature, diets are restrictive. By removing anything from your diet, you are also removing the macronutrients and micronutrients contained in those foods, and you must be intentional about adding them back in somehow. Mira and Jayson now understand that no diet is perfect and they have created the term “nutrivore” to inform people that they should primarily aim to eat macronutrients and micronutrients rather than sticking to a specific diet.
In addition to nutritious eating, a healthy lifestyle and supplements that follow the ABCS (Absorption, Beneficial quantity and forms, Competition, and Synergies) are the crucial elements of the journey towards health. A great place to start is by getting a spectra cell test, an omega check, and a hormone check to get a baseline for where you are now, and the results will help guide you to the specific metrics you need to focus on daily. Over the years, Jayson and Mira have tested dozens of supplements based on their ABCS only to find that most on the market do not meet the basic qualifications for sufficiency. As a result, they have created their own line of supplements that are easily absorbable and very effective. Talking to Mira and Jayson was so enlightening to me and my own health journey and I hope it will be for you as well.
