Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Minerals… are what you body is really craving!

Malnutrition is on the rise in our society. Since most people are not educated in nutrition, they are malnourished and don’t even know it. The US Department of Agriculture did a survey of over 20,000 people and found only 10% (or 1 out of 10) got even the minimum RDA for the seven essential nutrients. Several factors play a part in this epidemic of malnutrition, poor food consumption, eating too fast, fried foods, highly processed ingredients, and food full of sugar are chiefly to blame.

Since our fruits and vegetables come from depleted soils, it is a challenge to get all our vitamins and minerals from even properly grown foods. The Encyclopedia Of World Problems and Human Potential states that in productivity, approximately one-third of the world’s crop land had fallen dramatically by the 1980’s. One example is spinach, it has only two percent of the mineral content of iron that it had 60 years ago. The end result is that the foods we consume to give us nutrition are not doing the job they were meant to do.

Enzymes also contribute to malnutrition which are essential to break down of the nutrients so that our bodies can absorb and use them. When food is either cooked or processed, the end result is that the naturally occurring enzymes are destroyed. Based on this lack of enzymes, our digestive system can not properly absorb the vital nutrients we require from our diets. Even though we may be eating all of the necessary foods required for health; we may still be suffering from malnutrition.

In addition to the above mentioned problems, malnutrition can also be attributed to mucous plaque build-up on the intestinal walls. This layer of toxic waste material builds up over time due to inadequate diet and a sluggish colon. The absorption of nutrients becomes greatly hindered, and a failure to achieve optimum nutrition from our foods occurs.

Todays soils are depleted of nutrients

Today’s modern family finds it a challenge to not only eat right, but to also obtain the true nutrition that they think they are obtaining from their foods. Commercially available synthetic or rock-based supplements are chiefly undigested by the body… and simply flushed away. The secret to vitamin & mineral absorption, is in the fact that our bodies are designed to best absorb plant-sourced nutrients. The key factor, is in consuming organic, whole foods or taking a true plant-derived mineral supplement.

The basic functions of life cannot be performed without minerals. Simply said, minerals are the currency of life. There are 75 metals listed in the periodic chart, all of which have been detected in human blood and other body fluids – we know that at least 60 of these metals (minerals) have physiological value for man. Organically not a single function in the human body can take place without at least one mineral or metal cofactor.

As far as supplements go, vitamins have historically ‘gotten the glory’ and minerals were mere stepchildren in the Muliple Vitamin – as everyone always asks, “Did you take your vitamins today?” Of course they really mean, “Did you take your multiple vitamins and minerals today?” Minerals, however are in fact required by any and all body functions from the basic subcellular molecular biological ‘metallic fingers’ of RNA and DNA to electrochemical, catalytic, structural, reproduction, maintenance, repair and a plethora of miscellaneous functions. As important as minerals are to human flesh and the very existence of man, human-kind has rather placed more value on material possessions and wealth than on our metabolic need for minerals.

According to the World Health Organization, the United States spends more money than any other nation in the world on health care; yet 36 other nations are ranked higher than it in terms of quality of health.

It is projected that by the year 2100 there will be more than 12 billion people on the Earth. There is seemingly no way that our farm soils can sustain the nutritional value of our soils, our foods, or ourselves. Genetic engineering, better varieties of grains, rice, and corn, and perhaps even better fertilizer will produce more tons and bushels of crops that are tastier and have longer shelf life – but they will not adequately sustain us.

The earth has become anemic. In short this means we can no longer get the 60 nutritional minerals we need from our food. We must consciously supplement our daily intake of food with the lacking 60 nutritional minerals or poor health and disease are certain resultants.

‘Humic shale’ is a unique source of plant-derived colloidal minerals. Humic shale originated from plants some 75 million years ago. Those lush tropical plants took up the 60 plus metallic minerals available to them from the a fertile soil that had as many as 84 minerals. Humic shale is like the floor of a forest, very compacted dry leaves and sticks. The consistency is like dried saltine crackers or very dry oak leaves. Put them into your hands and rub them together, and it all crumbles into a real fine dust.

A volcanic eruption covered these mineral-rich forests with a thin layer of mud and ash, thick enough to create an air-tight ‘vault’ and dried or dehydrated the plants into a deep accumulation of ‘hay’, but not deep enough or heavy enough to pressurize the dried plant material into coal or oil. The entombed humic shale never fossilized or petrified, in other words they never became rocks – just compressed, dried prehistoric ‘hay’ that contains large amounts of plant-derived colloidal minerals

It takes 78 pounds of humic shale to reach the optimum concentration of 38 grams of colloidal minerals per liter; the 78 pounds of humic shale represents approximately 1034 pounds of lush prehistoric green mineral rich plants. The fluid extract of high grade humic shale contains no less than 60 plant-derived colloidal minerals and is 98% bio-available for both animals and humans.
