“The Magic of Minerals” is the latest of numerous books that Bob L. Owen , Ph.D., D.Sc., C.R. (or, as he prefers, “Dr. Bob”)
has published. And at 81 years young, he has no plans of slowing down. As an expert in minerals, Dr. Bob realized the importance of an easy to understand book for people who need to know about minerals.
These important nutrients are so poorly understood; and a shortage of minerals is responsible for so much misery in those who don’t know about minerals. He is busy drafting more books that will help us to understand how to easily create programs of disease prevention for your body. He believes this is the only way to conquer cancer
and other disease epidemics that are so out of control in our modern world.
Dr. Bob began his journey into the health and nutritional while serving his country in the U.S. Maritime Service during World War II. Even though his medical background at that time consisted solely of one year in a nurses training program, when the captain on his first ship took a quick look at his resume, he decided Ensign Owen would be the ship’s “doctor”.
From those early days of often being in over his head, through being sidetracked into other areas and obtained degrees in Religion, journalism, Psychology, and Education, Dr. Bob always knew that he wanted to return to his first loves: physiology, health and healing.
While attempting to keep up with busy writing/editorial schedules, he began to experience health challenges.
He was advised to slow down or suffer the consequences.
In the process of “slowing down”, he was able to research, and consequently heal his own health challenges.
During this time he earned his Ph.D. in Nutritional Science and used his experience from his publishing days to write his first book concerning the challenges of health and healing – Roger’s Recovery from AIDS, which has spanned the globe and has been published in at least thirteen languages.
