Minerals for Life
They say "you are what you eat," but many people in the first world are having an identity crisis because no one knows what to eat anymore. So much conflicting information is being disseminated to the public and this is true also in the vitamin and mineral supplementation area as well as in chelation and medicine itself. In chelation (heavy metal Detox) we have a line up of synthetic chelators competing against each other as well against their less toxic natural chelation brethren. Competing theories have polarized chelation and medical practices leaving a wake of confusion among parents seeking safe and effective treatment for themselves and their children.
Thus it serves us to go back to the basics of life and health for secure answers that we know will work no matter what anyone says or thinks. When we examine the beginning of life and go back to the very first single cell, with its specific mixture and balance of nutrients, we find the mystery of the spark of life. What we find in the very structure of life is a fine balance of minerals that are absolutely essential for cell creation, growth and function. It is basic to cell physiology that a complete spectrum of minerals is present to metabolize 100% of the amino acids and vitamins consumed. When critical minerals are missing or represented in deficient amounts, our bodies fail to optimally metabolize and convert essential nutrients into energy.
Minerals are the building blocks of our bodies.
They are required for body structure, fluid balance,
protein structures and to produce hormones. They are a key for the health of
every body system and function.
They act as co-factors, catalysts or inhibitors of all enzymes in the body.
For years the supplement market has been dominated by vitamins, but vitamins and amino acids are useless without minerals because all enzyme activities involve minerals. Minerals are very important for human survival. Our bodies are composed primarily of carbon and water but we need several other things in order to survive like vitamins and minerals. Some of the important minerals that we need besides magnesium are selenium, iron, iodine, copper, calcium, zinc manganese, chromium and potassium. Without these minerals our bodies are not be able to regulate themselves properly. Unfortunately modern processed foods are terribly deficient in minerals and the medical establishment does not want you to know about it for a population properly nourished with minerals would be a much healthier population meaning there would be a lot less money to be made by doctors and pharmaceutical companies.
In mineral therapy we
understand that certain minerals
are both the cause (when deficient) and cure of many diseases.
Minerals help with everyday body processes, reduce risk of certain cancers, strengthen muscles and tissues, and help develop organs and tissues as well as keeping them from deteriorating. Without minerals we would not be able to survive. They are essential for life, health, and happiness. Minerals are needed to maintain the delicate cellular fluid balance, to form bone and blood cells, to provide for electrochemical nerve activity, and to regulate muscle tone and activity (including organ muscles like the heart, stomach, liver, etc.)
In the absence of certain trace
minerals, various heavy metals are more
likely to accumulate. Minerals create safety buffers against toxic metals.
The dynamic equilibrium that takes place with liquid ionic minerals and trace minerals in healthy blood plasma, lymphatic and cellular fluids is the same basic balance that is found in sea water. The molecular mystery of cell life and human blood plasma happens to be mirrored almost exactly in the mineral composition of sea water. Sea water contains the full spectrum of mineral salts in the ratio we need. Thus we can expect to find medical miracles to occur quite commonly when we employ the healing qualities of minerals provided by the sea. The form of the minerals we take is mission critical to the healing effects we are looking for when we or our children are suffering from their deficiency.
When minerals are consumed in
they have a profound effect on human health.
The late French scientist Dr. Alexis Carrel kept a chicken heart alive for over 27 years by having the pulsating heart in a solution of isotonic seawater. Dr. Jacques de Langre, in his book, Seasalt’s Hidden Powers, states that naturally and properly sunshine-preserved sea salt is the difference between life and death, health and illness, social sanity and planetary panic and its elements are vital for proper body functions. In addition, he states that the pure, natural, hand-harvested ocean salt helps to maintain life, neutralize toxins and detrimental bacteria, and enhances all our organic functioning.
There is nothing the body
when given the right nutrients.
Pure sea salts should contain around 92 essential minerals; however, all refined common table salts contain only 2 elements, sodium and chloride. In June of 2006, citing increased risk of hypertension, heart diseases and stroke, the American Medical Association issued a call to have salt removed from the "generally recognized as safe" food ingredient list. Citing increased risk of these chronic diseases, the American Medical Association issued a call to have salt removed from the "generally recognized as safe" food ingredient list. But what the AMA is too dim-witted to say is that it is the highly processed table salts that are poisonous to human health, not real whole sea salt with all the minerals still intact.
we look at the attributes of unprocessed sea salt and sea water products like
concentrated sea minerals, magnesium chloride brines, and pure sea water itself
(which is sold in hypertonic and isotonic forms) we see miracle medicines that
will prevent hypertension, heart diseases and stroke! If common table salt was
banned and replaced with real salt we would have a dramatic improvement in the
publics’ health because of the re-mineralization properties of real sea salt
with all the minerals left intact. No science can hope to compete with the
minerals of sea water. They are extremely bio-avaliable which is the
significant reason sea water derived minerals are the absolute best way to
supplement. Our special needs for certain minerals like selenium, zinc and
other minerals needed in increased quantities and concentrations have to be
supplemented in other ways.
The soluble minerals in different sea water products:
act as ionized conductors of the body’s electrical current, which is necessary
for all bodily functions.
• act as catalysts and activators of other nutrients including vitamins.
• are the building blocks of enzymes, hormones and other natural body chemicals used by the body to perform specific functions.
• have an equalizing and balancing effect. Body fluids, fluid pressures, and pH levels are balanced by minerals.
• Are essential in digestion and absorption of nutrients by our body.
dietary deficiency of trace elements occurs, cells lose the ability to control
their ions with dire consequences for cell physiology. Even a minute loss of
ion equilibrium causes cells to burst, nervous disorder, brain damage, or
muscle spasms, as well as a breakdown of the cell-regenerating process and
growth. In the theory of acid and alkaline balance, for example, chronic
disease such as cancer is caused by the acidification of the blood, lymph and
all cellular tissues.
Minerals from the sea provide a deep reservoir of strength that allows us to walk erect, gain intelligence, and remain totally free. They provide the key to the proper breakdown of plant carbohydrates into useable and absorbable human food. Only when all the minerals are present can saliva and gastric secretions readily break down the fibrous store of carbohydrates.
Children suffer behavioral and
learning disorders when their diets are
deficient in vital nutrients needed for their brains to function normally.
Minerals and Omega-3 fatty acids will work together to effect
dramatic improvements no allopathic medicine can compete with.
In ancient times, salt was used to treat major physical and mental disturbances, severe burns, and other ailments. Today biologists attest that seawater restores hydro-electrolytic imbalances, a disorder that causes loss of immune response, creates allergies, and causes many health problems. The therapeutic effect of seawater is recognized and used by many European medical professionals because of its effectiveness in so many situations. Why? Because the vast array of minerals present in both the salt and sea water provide the body exactly what he needs to heal itself.
Nothing is more basic to health and nothing is more important to understand in medical practice. It is an unfortunate tragedy that allopathic doctors have no notion of this and an act of outright terrorism that the medical industrial complex does not want anyone to know this. For all the billions of dollars of research they put into modern pharmaceuticals they will never come up with drugs that have the healing power and safety of sea minerals.
Minerals provide the spark for many of the body’s cellular processes and keep them running efficiently. Without these finely-tuned chemical reactions no organism can function. Inorganic mineral nutrients are also essential in the structural composition of hard and soft body tissues and are necessary in processes such as the action of enzyme systems, the contraction of muscles, nerve reactions and the clotting of blood. Humans need a wide range of minerals to maintain good health and we need them in the right amounts and relations to each other (co-action). Small variations in established minerals levels can cause pathological states to occur.
body relies on ionic minerals and trace minerals to conduct and
generate billions of tiny electrical impulses every second of our existence.
Mineral nutrients consist of two classes: the major elements such as calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, iron, iodine, and potassium; and trace elements such as copper, cobalt, manganese, fluorine, zinc and many others. All of these must be supplied in our diet because the body is unable to manufacture its own, and can only maintain its mineral balance for short periods of time. When the intake of minerals in our system becomes depleted, it draws from stores laid down in the muscles, the liver and bones.
