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.
Primal Docs was created in 2011 by Chris Armstrong. Chris was also responsible for the creation of the Celiac Handbook Website back in 2004 and is a tireless advocate for any and all things gluten-free (and grain-free).
As a natural progression of his gluten-free lifestyle, he finally decided to take the plunge into a primal/paleo lifestyle and cut out all grains, legumes, refined sugar, and processed seed oils. Both the physical and emotional benefits of this way of life were noticeable very quickly and any desire to go back to his old way of life were eliminated almost immediately.
