Hydration vs. Irrigation: Minerals, Glyphosate & Detoxification with Caroline Alan


In this episode, Dr. Stephanie has a conversation with Caroline Alan, co-founder and CEO of Beam Minerals, about the importance of minerals for overall wellness. They delve into topics such as soil depletion, genetically modified organisms, and glyphosate, and explore how minerals can improve digestion, cognitive health, detoxification, and skin health.

Caroline came from a career in the corporate world and found herself struggling physically, mentally, and energetically. As a woman juggling career, motherhood, and the multitude of expectations placed on a professional woman, she was repeatedly told that her issues were “just normal.” She refused to accept that answer.

During her journey back to health, Caroline encountered plant-based minerals and their incredible ability to support a return to natural balance in the body. As a result, she has become devoted to educating people about the benefits of mineral replenishment and the specific efficacy of plant-based humic and fulvic substances.

In this episode, Dr. Stephanie and Caroline discuss the importance of minerals for overall wellness. Caroline explores topics such as soil depletion, glyphosate, and how minerals improve digestion, cognitive health, detoxification, and skin health. She also digs into the role of macrominerals in nerve function and highlights the detoxification capabilities of plant-based minerals. Caroline also discusses the bioavailability of these minerals and recommends using naturally-formulated supplements. Lastly, Caroline introduces and explains Beam Minerals’ products for daily mineral replenishment.

I’m Dr. Stephanie

Part geek, part magic, and all the way passionate about being a well-lived woman.

I want to throw my grandkids in the air in my 70’s. I want to be squatting even more weight than I am now, and putting my OWN luggage in the overhead bin. Sound like weird goals? For me these are just some of the little things that represent a life well-lived.

My health is MY job – I’ll be damned if I rely on luck, ‘good genes’ or a cocktail of drugs that over promise and under deliver.

The Betty Body is my first book-baby, and a collection of what I’ve learned after thousands of clinical hours, hundreds of conversations with the world’s top experts, and most importantly…

This book is an outline of what took ME from “rock-bottom health” at 38, to being my own version of a Betty in my perimenopausal mid 40’s. A woman who is physically strong, full of energy, enjoys mental clarity, great sex and a joyful family life. Is it all roses? Of course not. But I have the stamina and tools to deal with the push and pull of life so that it doesn’t turn into chronic stress.

I want this for you too. Let’s go Bettys!
