“It is bad news to learn from our leading authorities that 99
percent of the American people are deficient in minerals, and
that a marked deficiency in any one of the more important
minerals actually results in DISEASE. Any upset of the
balance, any considerable lack of one or another element,
however microscopic the body requirement may be, and we
sicken, suffer, shorten our lives”.
They go on to say “… each mineral element playing a definite
role in nutrition. A characteristic set of symptoms, just as
specific as any vitamin deficiency disease, follows a deficiency
in any one of them. It is alarming, therefore, to face the fact
that we are starving for these precious health-giving
“Our soils which are seriously deficient in trace minerals,
cannot produce plant life competent to maintain our needs,
and with the continuous cropping and shipping away of
those trace minerals and concentrates, the condition
becomes worse. We are a nation of impending fat bellies!”
These statements were made in 1936 by the United States
Congress, following a study of our food nutrient values, and
reported in the Readers Digest that year. Those facts have
only worsened with the years of land abuses, chemicals and
pesticides introduced into our foods by the farmers and the
fat bellies are now bouncing on every street in this world.
When my four children were born in the late 50’s and early
60’s the pediatrician recommended giving them vitamins but
not once did he tell me that mineral were required in order
to absorb the vitamins. In the years I worked in doctor’s
offices I did not once hear a doctor tell a patient how
important it was to have sufficient minerals in order to
absorb those vitamins.
Not until I read the Senate report eight years ago did I know
that minerals are the catalyst to a healthy body and without
them disease and obesity will rule.
Then as I studied more into that premise I found that a
requirement for ALL minerals is equally important. I see
minerals sold all over the place with 24 or 36 minerals but
not the whole 84 minerals and trace minerals our body was
created with and need to stay healthy and balanced.
Without a proper balance our bodies crave all kinds of
unhealthy foods and sugary empty calories. Creating the
obesity now rampant in the world. This is not helped by
all the fast food places that now exist.
Once the body contains the proper mineral balance and
megavitamins then and only then can weight loss and a
healthy body begin. This requires eating a balance of
fruits, nuts and vegetables daily. That’s 9 servings
daily in all. (a serving = ¾ to 1 cup per food group)
Vitamins sold on store shelves are seriously lacking in
proper amounts just as minerals are. Studies done over
the last decade show that the RDA’s you see on vitamin
bottles and in advertisements are so weak that the body
is still malnourished and requires at least three times the
amount recommended, and in some as much as ten times
the amount. One-a-day just won’t balance it for you!
I have watched as people began to lose weight once
they balanced their body with minerals, meganutrient
vitamins and antioxidants. I have seen cancer disappear
with natural treatment and balancing those three things
in the body. With proper balance I have seen manic
depression subside, allergies become nonexistant,
asthma disappear and diabetes eliminated, just to name
a few… Balance is the key.
Start balancing today and if you wish help in choosing the
right supplements that I’ve watched cure problems
Wishing you a long healthy life!
