A primary goal of every mineral balancing program is to replace missing vital minerals in our bodies. Everyone today is low in these important nutrients. The gut microbiome has an important role in infant health and immune development and may be affected by early-life exposures.
Most everyone has mineral starvation, no matter how many calories or how much protein or other food one eats. This is due primarily to modern N-P-K agriculture, which is the use of superphosphate fertilizers and associated changes in agriculture that occurred in the past 80 years around the world
Replenishing minerals is not that easy. Medical books say that to just replenish one mineral can take 9-12 months. We look to replenish at least 25 minerals, so this is an involved process
Re-mineralizing a body quickly requires much more than just supplying the body with plenty of minerals. Here are the re-mineralization concepts used with a mineral balancing program:
- Provide the correct minerals
- Improve digestion so minerals will be absorbed
- Help the body conserve the minerals it has
- Balance the autonomic nervous system
- Increase adaptive energy production
- Remove the need for adaptation
- Improve biological transmutation
- Improve hydration, oxygenation and circulation
- Eliminate intestinal infections and parasites
- Use placeholders
- Move The Body Toward A More Yang State
PROVIDE THE CORRECT MINERALS
All of our food today is lower in minerals than it was 100 years ago. This is due to modern agriculture and the “green revolution”. Obtaining enough minerals from the food is therefore difficult.
Methods used to provide enough minerals are:
Lots of cooked vegetables.
Food contains forms of minerals that are not easily available from pills and powders.
Cooked vegetables are important
Minerals are not absorbed nearly as well from raw vegetables and raw grains.
Some meat and whole grains.
These also supply needed minerals.
Some dairy and beans, but not too much because they are yin and low etheric energy
Minerals are generally removed from processed and refined foods.
Organically grown food, if possible.
In a number of studies, organically grown food contains more minerals than commercially grown produce and other crops.
Drink mineralized water (either spring water or carbon-only filtered tap water)
Also, one must drink 2-3 quarts daily.
Sea salt, used liberally.
Table salt has had most of its minerals removed and can contain aluminum.
10-12 ounces of carrot juice daily or one-two ounces of wheat grass juice daily – and no others
These also helps supply needed minerals.
Supplements of 4000 mg of kelp daily.
This is very important, as it contains a lot of iodine, a mineral everyone needs today due to the presence of iodine antagonists in the environment. It also supplies many other minerals in an easy-to-use form.
Kelp contains some mercury and other toxic metals. However, it also contains a lot of alginates, which bind and prevent the absorption of most toxic metals in the kelp.
Chelated calcium, magnesium and zinc.
These are placeholders, but very needed for most everyone due to low levels in the food or soil. And at times, other chelated mineral supplements.
NO colloidal minerals, fulvic minerals or humic minerals, all of which contain too many toxic metals.
IMPROVE DIGESTION SO MINERALS WILL BE ABSORBED BETTER
Most people have weak digestion today. Restoring excellent digestion is an important goal of all mineral balancing programs. This is done with:
- A diet of easy to digest foods.
- Very simple food combinations.
- A powerful digestive aid with all meals.
- Probiotic foods – but only a little yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut, and miso because others contain aldehydes or other toxins.
- Healthy lifestyle, with plenty of rest and low stress.
- Healthful eating habits.
- Avoid anything that interferes with digestion. This includes:
- Food Additives
- Toxins found naturally in some foods such as most herbs, nuts, seeds, sprouts, spirulina, chlorella, nightshade vegetables.
- Toxins in medical drugs and over-the-counter items
- All smoothies, shakes, and juices except for some carrot juice or wheat grass juice taken alone, not with meals.
The reason is that smoothies are usually very bad food combinations, are too yin, and contain liquid which always interferes with digestion of food.
HELP THE BODY CONSERVE ITS MINERALS
- Lifestyle – such as getting enough rest, and not too much excessive exercise.
- Maintain healthy emotions and thoughts.
- Eat a low-stress diet, which is the type of diet we recommend.
- Balance the oxidation rate and the sodium/potassium ratio.
- Drink enough of the right kind of water, and avoid stimulants.
Restore the kidneys. Some people excrete minerals if the kidneys are weak. A mineral balancing program will slowly restore the kidneys.
- Chelation therapy. This may remove some toxic metals. However, it also often removes some vital minerals and can put a lot of stress on the body.
BALANCE THE AUTONOMIC NERVOUS SYSTEM
This is very important to re-mineralize the body. The reason is that digestion and absorption of nutrients require activation of the parasympathetic branch of the autonomic nervous system.
Many people live in a condition we call sympathetic dominance. This means they overuse the sympathetic branch of the autonomic nervous system. This inhibits the parasympathetic branch because the two branches are antagonistic.
As a result, digestion is weak, and will remain weak, no matter what is done to the digestive organs. The digestive system simply does not receive enough nerve energy or vital force because the body’s energy is directed to the brain and the muscles – and away from the digestive organs – by the sympathetic branch of the autonomic nervous system.
The ways to balance the autonomic nervous system are:
- Proper diet with loads of cooked vegetables and no fruit or sugars.
- Proper supplementation that relaxes the nervous system and nourishes the parasympathetic system.
- A healthy lifestyle with plenty of rest and going to bed early.
- Not too much exercise. Exercise powerfully stimulates the sympathetic nervous system.
- Daily use of near field infrared red light. This powerfully shuts down the sympathetic nervous system in a number of ways.
- The pushing down exercise. This is very balancing for the body and brain.
INCREASE ADAPTIVE ENERGY PRODUCTION
Our bodies are energy-producing machines. Without enough energy, nothing much happens in the body.
One can eat enough minerals, fix the digestive system, fix the autonomic nervous system, and eliminate toxin exposure. However, if one’s energy level is low, re-mineralizing the body will occur slowly, or not at all.
The car analogy. An analogy is that our bodies are like a modern automobile that has power steering, power brakes, power windows and power door locks.
If anything happens to the power, you are in trouble!
Restoring adaptive energy is more subtle. It requires:
- Balancing the oxidation rate on a hair analysis that is properly performed and interpreted.
- Balancing the sodium/potassium ratio.
- Make the body much more yang.
- Restore the energy pathways of the body
REMOVE THE NEED FOR ADAPTATION
The body holds on to certain toxic metals and/or toxic forms of minerals because it must have them to keep the sodium level and adrenal activity adequate. This was the research from Dr. Paul Eck founder of Analytical Research Labs in Phoenix, AZ
Therefore, in order to eliminate these toxic metals, and replace them with the vital alkaline reserve minerals, one must eliminate the body’s need for the adaptation of holding on to the toxic metals and toxic minerals.
One can supply minerals, improve digestion, and fix the autonomic nervous system, and all that is good. However, to release certain metals, one must also get rid of the need for adaptation. Once one does this, the toxic elements release quite easily.
The way this is done in mineral balancing is:
- supplements that support adrenal activity and the sodium/potassium ratio.
- A healthful lifestyle with plenty of rest and sleep.
IMPROVE BIOLOGICAL TRANSMUTATION
Human beings can transmute some minerals or elements into other elements. This can be very helpful to re-mineralize the body. Mineral balancing will help restore this ability of the body.
In order to do so the mineral balancing program does the following:
- Supply certain minerals that will be transformed.
- Increase the adaptive energy or vitality of the body.
- Restore the digestive system, especially the intestinal flora, sometimes called the microbiome.
When all this is done properly, biological transmutation begins to occur more rapidly and thoroughly
IMPROVE HYDRATION, OXYGENATION AND CIRCULATION
This is also needed for re-mineralization. The blood must circulate well to carry the new minerals to where they belong, and to remove toxic metals and other toxins that are in the way. Excellent hydration and circulation are thus essential. These are weak in most people.
The way to improve them include:
- The proper type and amount of drinking water.
- Some exercise, preferably daily.
- Use of a near field infrared light daily.
- Foot reflexology daily.
- The Pulling Down Exercise.
ELIMINATE INFECTIONS AND PARASITES
These often occur in the intestinal tract and can impair digestion and absorption of nutrients. These infections are different from having incorrect flora in the intestines.
These infections can be viral, for example, such as chronic hepatitis. They may affect any of the organs and tissues of the digestive tract.
Parasites are quite common, especially liver flukes. They can affect the absorption of nutrients depending upon which one(s) are present, and how severe is the infestation.
Fortunately, a complete mineral balancing program slowly gets rid of all intestinal infections, and all parasites. No anti-parasitic or anti-infective herbs or other products are needed.
This occurs for the following reasons:
- The more the diet is yang the more it does not support infections and parasites.
- GB-3 from Endo-met contains ox bile and pancreatin, has an anti-parasitic effect.
- Red infrared light has a beneficial effect.
- Coffee enemas are excellent to help rid the colon and the entire digestive tract of infection and parasites.
- Balancing the oxidation rate, the sodium/potassium ratio, and making the entire body more yang has a powerful healing effects.
USE PLACEHOLDERS TO SPEED UP RE-MINERALIZATION
The placeholder concept is that one can give supplements that are not the perfect mineral, but they are good enough that they “hold a place” in the body until the body can obtain the proper mineral compounds.
For example, chelated calcium, magnesium, zinc and sometimes other chelated minerals such as manganese and copper.
These are not the perfect mineral compounds for the body. However, they are able to correct mineral balance and therefore they allow the body to heal at deep levels. Over time, the body will obtain the proper mineral compounds from the diet, and these will be substituted for the “placeholder minerals”.
An analogy is building a scaffolding around a building while it is being erected. Once the building is complete, the scaffolding is no longer needed, and is removed.
MOVE THE BODY TOWARD A MORE YANG STATE
Yang means warmer and more compact. Making the digestive tract more yang helps get rid of “cold” infections, which include many intestinal infections and parasitic infections.
Moving the body toward a more yang state is also necessary to heal some cases of “leaky gut”. This is the common condition in which partially digested food or other chemicals are absorbed into the body through the intestinal wall. This is a common cause of food allergies, fatigue, and other symptoms.
A leaky gut can be due to infection, inflammation or other problems with the intestine. An important cause, however, is a yin or expanded condition of the intestinal tract. It means there are too many spaces or openings in the intestinal lining through which chemicals and other foreign proteins can be absorbed.
KEEP THE BODY BALANCED
As all of the above proceed, they must be done in a way so as to keep the oxidation rate and sodium/potassium ratio balanced. Otherwise, the healing energy or adaptive energy of the body declines and the re-mineralization process with slow down. https://www.mothersbabies.org/ recommends to eat more fruits during pregnancy.
