The Minerals that your Body Needs
The body needs many minerals in trace amounts to operate properly. Why? Because, at the microscopic level, the body is a complex molecular machine. It needs rare elements to perform chemical reactions, or to make a chemical machine work differently.
Here are the most important minerals.
Zinc eliminates body odor, helps protects the teeth, helps to eliminate bad breath, restores enzyme function of the immune system and skin, strongly fights viruses, protects the nervous system. Zinc is antagonistic to copper and should be done separately from copper (preferably on the other side of the day).
All food in the US has been deficient in zinc since the 1950s.
Signs of a zinc deficiency:
- body odor
- bad breath
- poor skin
- weak immune system
- chronic viral infections
- nerve damage or nerve disease
Selenium is an powerful antioxidant. Research shows that it inhibits cancer rates by up to 42%, making it the most promising anti-cancer mineral (substance) yet discovered. Selenium protects the cell from cancer and viral damage.
All food in the US has been deficient in selenium since the 1950s.
Signs of a selenium deficiency:
- viral infections
- DNA damage
The entire US population is deficient in selenium.
Germanium protects the nucleus of the cell from viral and cancer damage. Protects the valves that separate the five sections of the gastro-intestinal tract. Germanium is a rare trace mineral found primarily in mushrooms.
Signs of a germanium deficiency:
- viral infections
- DNA damage
- gastro-intestinal disorders
Silver destroys every virus known on contact. Destroys harmful fungus and bacteria while keeping healthy tissue and good bacteria intact. Protects the nervous system from viruses and bacteria. Much has been written, discovered, and experienced about colloidal silver being the world's most powerful antibiotic. Angstrom silver is a million times smaller than ColloidalSilver and thus is more effective without side effects (colloidal silver can get gummed up in the tissues and skin).
Chromium balances blood sugar, helps the pancreas to produce the proper levels of insulin. Chromium is zapped out of our bodies in our youth as a result of eating starchy demineralized foods and refined sugar. Most chromium deficiencies are chronic. Other than magnesium, chromium is the most deficient mineral in the cooked civilization diet.
Signs of a chromium deficiency:
- late afternoon blood sugar crashes
Magnesium relaxes muscles, builds bone, causes strong peristalsis, increases flexibility, increases alkalinity. Found at the center of the chlorophyll molecule, magnesium is the most deficient mineral in the cooked civilization diet. Magnesium, as a primary alkaline mineral, opens up over 300 different elimination pathways. Magnesium can be biologically transmutated into calcium.
Signs of a magnesium deficiency:
- inflexibility of muscles
- muscle spasms
Calcium relaxes muscles and the digestive system, builds bone, neutralizes acidity, exports toxins out of the cell and blood stream. Calcium works synergistically with magnesium. It should be taken in a ratio of 2 parts magnesium to 1 part calcium.
Signs of a calcium deficiency:
- tissue toxicity
Gold is a mystical platinum-group mineral. It has the highest frequency of the platinum-group elements. Researchers are just beginning to understand the role of angstrom-sized gold in nutrition. It seems to have a wide-range of properties, including: calming the nervous system, increasing lucid dreaming, balancing the endocrine and glandular system, protecting the DNA from free radicals, cancer, and viral damage, increasing the strength of the immune system, and improving intelligence.
Copper is a de-wormer and destroyer of macro-parasites. Copper cleanses the lymphatic system, assists with stimulating peristalsis, and strengthens the immune system. Copper is usually found bound up in the vitamin C complex in plants. Copper is a very strong mineral and doses should be kept at 1 dropper (ml). Copper is antagonistic to zinc and should done separately from zinc (preferably on the other side of the day).
Food grown agriculturally in the western world today is deficient in copper.
Signs of a copper deficiency:
- spleen insufficiency
- weak immune system
- worms, other parasite infections
Sulfur is the number one beauty mineral. It is the number one mineral in the skin, hair, nails, liver, and pancreas. Sulfur potentiates all other minerals allowing them to be absorbed and utilized more efficiently. Sulfur creates permeability. It works synergistically with vitamin C to create the super-protein collagen. Sulfur helps alleviate wrinkles, and skin damage, including scarring. Sulfur helps repair injured joints, tendons, ligaments, and connective tissue. Sulfur helps build sulfur-bearing amino acids which detoxify the liver, nourish the hair and skin, and build flexible muscle. Angstrom-sized sulfur is as or more biologically available than MSM (methyl-sulfonyl-methane). Sulfur is found in rainwater and plants dependent on rain water for survival.
Many foods are grown agriculturally and in greenhouses and thus are deficient in sulfur.
Signs of a sulfur deficiency:
- weak nails
- brittle hair
- leathery organs, tissue, and skin
- joint inflammation
- connective tissue damage
- poor skin quality
- liver stagnation
- liver disease
- insulin/blood sugar challenges
- protein deficiency
