Our poor health and growing waistlines can be traced back to the hidden crisis of a micronutrient deficiency. More than 90 percent of all Americans are deficient in at least one of these health-promoting vitamins and minerals and don't even know it.
According to nutritionists Jayson and Mira Calton, micronutrients--vitamins and minerals essential for optimum health--are being stripped from our diet and depleted by our lifestyle habits. And these deficiencies cause today's most common illnesses. Mira herself developed advanced osteoporosis at the age of 30. But with Jayson's help, she reversed her disease through micronutrient therapy. The Caltons created "The Mircronutrient Miracle, " an incredible cure-all program, to help you lose weight and prevent and reverse common disorders, including obesity, heart disease, and diabetes.
"The Micronutrient Miracle" explains the truth about what you're really eating and how your habits may be depleting essential micronutrients. It also provides an easy-to-follow 28-day plan to reverse these effects by restoring your depleted micronutrients. And the best part? This book is tailor-made to work with your lifestyle, including gluten-free, low-carb, low-fat, vegan, and Paleo recipes

The Caltons (Rich Food, Poor Food) fell in love and married after her advanced osteoporosis improved following Mira’s adoption of Jayson’s micronutrient method. Encouraged by this success, the couple embarked on a six-year tour of over 135 countries to learn more about micronutrients (vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, and amino acids). They returned to the U.S. with a conclusion: one’s specific diet or country of residence is less important to one’s health than the amount of micronutrients in one’s food. According to the authors, there is a “silent global pandemic” of deficiency in these elements, the lack of which can contribute to such diseases as cancer and osteoporosis. The core problem, the Caltons claim, lies with modern food production and distribution methods, including factory farming, the use of GMOs, and long-distance transport, all of which rob foods of micronutrients, as does the increasing depletion of agricultural topsoil. After delivering this bad news in no uncertain terms, the authors offer a 28-day strategy for restoring the body. Whether or not avid dieters fully accept the dire warnings given here, they should appreciate this comprehensive plan for choosing locally grown, “rich” foods that provide a healthful “micronutrient bang for every delicious bite.” Agent: Celeste Fine, Sterling Lord Literistic.
