Dateline: Utopia, Texas; by Briana McDonald, Natural Healing Writer (UtopiaSilver.com) We all know that our bodies are smarter than we are, in fact if it were left up to us, we would probably forget to do all of the numerous things it does on a day to day basis. Woops, forgot to grow my hair and nails today! It also looks like I forgot to secrete the protective layer of mucus to prevent my stomach from digesting itself! It’s on tomorrow’s to do list. Could you imagine being in charge of all these functions? To maintain proper health and to promote healing in our bodies, all we simply have to do is put the right things into it. So why choose plant minerals? Well, let’s see by exploring the healing power of plant minerals.
Two time Nobel Prize winner Linus Pauling went so far as to state unequivocally “You can trace every sickness, every disease, and every ailment to a mineral deficiency.” Minerals are in fact, the building blocks for optimal health and vitality. Without them, nothing else works quite as it should. Amino acids and enzymes do not work, and vitamins and other nutrients do not get broken down and absorbed properly so we end up with extreme deficiencies in both vitamins and minerals.
Even if you’ve eaten giant leafy green salads 5 times a day for the past 2 years, I can promise that you will still be deficient in minerals because what is in those delicious salads in this century is not what was in them when you grandparents and great grandparents were consuming them. Thanks to poor farming methods where the goal is to produce “maximum yield” where quantity is far greater than quality, that salad only has 1/8th of the nutrients it had 100 years ago.
To use plant minerals for healing, your best bet is going to be supplementation. I’m not by any means saying to continue unhealthy eating habits and as long as you are supplementing you’ll be fine, but I am saying what ‘s stocked in our grocery stores doesn’t have enough of what your body needs to function as God intended it to. Similar to seeing out pets eating grass when they feel sick, it is our instincts to seek out plant minerals for healing. Unfortunately most of us seek out fast foods, nuked meals, sweets, and junk food instead of turning to a nutritious diet or other healthy way to furnish minerals, such as taking a food based mineral supplement.
To give just a few examples; if you are craving chocolate, your body is deficient in magnesium. If you are craving sweets, you are probably deficient in chromium, carbon, phosphorus, sulfur and tryptophan. If you are craving bread you are deficient in Nitrogen. If you are craving oily snacks and fatty foods you are deficient in calcium. So instead of seeking out empty calories and foods that still making you feel like “something” is missing; seek out the healing power of plant minerals through a healthy diet and proper supplementation.
