About Jayson & Mira Calton

Dr. Jayson Calton has worked with thousands of international clients over the last 25 years and specializes in teaching his unique nutritional and lifestyle therapies to adults and children with obesity, diabetes, high triglycerides, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, immune system disorders, cancer, heart disease, ADD/ADHD, candida, HIV, seizures, celiac disease, osteoporosis, multiple sclerosis, migraine headaches, depression, crohn’s disease, and fibromyalgia. Dr. Calton is an active member of numerous medical and nutritional associations and has been the lead author of several scientific papers in peer-reviewed journals. He is passionate about helping people understand the connection between micronutrient sufficiency and optimal health and is committed to the fight against obesity.

Mira Calton’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. Mira’s drive and determination led her all the way to Orlando, Florida where she met nutritional guru, Dr. 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.
