Our Professionals

Clair Beardson OMP, MRCHM, FRGS

Mineralysis, was opened 1998 by Clair Beardson. Clair comes from a family of Western medicine practitioners and has been a long term resident in Asia; this has enabled her to fully understand and appreciate the underlying beliefs and values of combining Western and Eastern Medicine. She studied at the London School of Oriental Medicine under Dr. Thong Tinh and then subsequently studied and worked in Hanoi at the major TCM hospital in Vietnam.

She is a staunch believer in the value of organic food and fully embraces the importance of good nutrition and the positive impact it can have on an individual's health and well-being. She strongly believes in matching the correct diet to the individual - to meet each individual's needs. She supervises the Hailey Estate in England where she has developed programmes to create a range of organic foods and also cultivates selected herbs for experimental, scientific programmes in collaboration with universities in Britain and Europe. For example, there has been an extensive programme working with Oxford University on artemisia and its impact on malaria.

Clair Beardson has over 25 years experience of Chinese medicine and its application to a wide range of contemporary ailments. She regularly speaks on topics related to nutrition and contemporary health. Clair also leads workshops and master classes in these areas.

Clair has seen the positive effects TCM has on patients - especially when combining western and eastern practices. She has been involved in advising national governments in Africa and the Middle East on introducing Chinese medicine into public health programmes. She is also working hard to bring the benefits of TCM to western societies which are overly dependent on synthetic medicines. Clair advises businesses on incorporating medical and nutritional facilities into their projects.

Clair was further honoured to represent this Western form of TCM at the first international conference in Vietnam for the potential future integration of western and traditional medicine. In addition, she was invited to participate in the World Botanical Garden conference in Wuhan in 2007 and has advised the Proyecto Andino, the botanical garden project in the Atacama Desert in Chile. She has participated in botanical expeditions in the Himalayas and Guatemala and she is a regular visitor to the World Economic Forum in Davos where she has been invited to talk. She is also a member of the International Dendrology Society.

He is also the nutritionist for Mineralysis, a centre (linked to Albert Place) for the screening of heavy metal exposure and mineral imbalance. Mineralysis provides Western and Chinese Medicine Nutritional Advice, heavy metal detoxification, weight management and food therapy. Their hair tests determine mineral levels and detect drug use.

The centre provides advice and support to doctors and the healthcare sector and also offers a thriving clinic for the public.
