180DegreeHealth #13: Mineral Ratios with Dr. Garrett Smith

It’s that time of the month! But Dr. Garrett ain’t got time to bleed.

This month, me n’ Doc G talk about mineral ratios and the significance Garrett is finding them to have with real live patients in his personal practice. We discuss interesting interactions between sodium and potassium, calcium and phosphorous, calcium and potassium, calcium and magnesium, zinc and copper, copper and iron, and others.

With targeted supplementation and periodic monitoring of the changes in the mineral levels in new hair growth, it’s possible to change these ratios dramatically. When they change, people often feel and function differently, which means there must be something significant about mineral levels as well as proportions and interrelationships. That’s really no secret, but the “pseudoscientific” way of tracking these changes is what makes Dr. Garrett a raging lunatic. You know, because just throwing pills down the hatch blindly and hoping for the best is a more credible approach.

And please note everyone: Do not send unsolicited bags of hair (dirty pubes especially) to Dr. Smith. You must first receive a testing kit before you attempt this, which you can get if you email Dr. G at: [email protected]

Enjoy the talk, and enjoy the upcoming lineup of superstars I have coming up in August. It’s going to be a wicked month for the D podcast…

  1. Thank you so much for doing this work. Could you please share the recipe for making the mixture of salt and potassium chloride for people low on potassium, and also how much of it one can safely eat on foods through out the day.
    thank you!!

  2. Garrett sounds like Darth Vader in this episode compared to the first one I listened to lol
