In this episode
I talk to Karen Watkins, Technical Advisor at Mineral Check, about the links between mental and physical health and the way our bodies use and store minerals.
This episode is a MUST for anyone who experiences repeated bouts of depression, anyone who regularly drinks more alcohol than the government recommended guidelines, and anyone interested in subjects like ADHD and other behavioural difficulties that could be affected by mineral levels in the body.
Karen studied at the renowned Institute for Optimum Nutrition and since qualifying as a nutritional therapist has worked as a busy practitioner and also in the field of hair mineral analysis.
She has written for a number of publications, been featured in national newspapers and on television, has written a short book and lectures at a number of universities and training colleges on the subject of hair mineral analysis. She has also had her own research published in leading medical journals and in 2017 was made a fellow of BANT (British Association of Nutritional Therapy) for services to the profession.
Karen is the technical advisor at Mineral Check, a laboratory that specialises in Hair Mineral Analysis.
