Do you take a trace mineral complex? If not, you should because trace minerals are a very powerful detoxing agent – especially for detoxing from radiation.
I recommend adding a trace mineral supplement to your vitamin protocol at least 4 times a week. You can get your daily trace minerals by eating a diet rich in these minerals, and by drinking mineral or spring water every day, but make sure that you really are getting enough every day.
In today’s world, we are bombarded by pollutants, including higher levels of radiation – whether from the thinning of the upper atmosphere or from Fukushima. (If you don’t know about either of these issues, do some research on the increase in dangerous radiation from human pollution and negligence.)
Many people don’t realize how important the trace minerals really are. They strengthen your body in very stealth ways, which not only provides many nutrients forgotten about, but helps you naturally detox from increasing pollutants.
Hey, an ounce a day can keep the doctor away….
What Are Trace Minerals?
Trace minerals are the elements that comprise the entire universe; they are found on the earth, and they support everything on our planet, including you.
Our bodies are formed from these very same elements. So, it is important to constantly replenish your body daily with the elements it survives on.
Here is a list of the trace minerals your body needs for health and wellness:
Acne – zinc, sulfur
Anemia – iron, cobalt, copper, selenium
Arthritis – calcium, copper, magnesium, potassium, boron, strontium, phosphorus
Asthma – manganese, zinc, potassium
Brittle nails – iron, zinc
Birth defects – zinc, copper, cobalt, selenium, magnesium, manganese
Cancer – selenium, germanium
Candida – zinc, selenium
Chronic Fatigue – zinc, selenium, chromium, vanadium
Constipation – iron, magnesium, potassium
Cramps – calcium, sodium, potassium
Depression – calcium, copper, iron, sodium, zinc, chromium, lithium
Diabetes – chromium, vanadium, zinc, molybdenum
Digestive problems – chlorine, chromium, zinc, sulfur
Eczema – zinc
Graying hair – copper
Goiter (low thyroid) – iodine, copper, lithium
Hair loss – copper, zinc
Heart disease – calcium, copper, magnesium, potassium, selenium
Hyperactivity – chromium, zinc, magnesium, lithium
Immune system weakness – zinc, selenium, chromium, germanium
Impotence – selenium, zinc, manganese, calcium, chromium
Infertility – calcium, zinc, selenium, chromium, copper, cobalt, manganese
Liver dysfunction – cobalt, selenium, zinc
Low blood sugar – chromium, vanadium, zinc
Memory loss – manganese, germanium
Muscular weakness – selenium, potassium, manganese, copper
Nervousness – magnesium, lithium
Osteoporosis – calcium, magnesium, boron, strontium, phosphorus
PMS – zinc, chromium, selenium, vanadium
Receding gums – calcium, potassium, magnesium, boron
Sexual dysfunction – selenium, zinc, manganese, lithium, cobalt
Wrinkles/sagging (aging) – copper
Trace Minerals and Detoxing
Trace minerals detox through replacement – they provide the elements needed to restore tissue health. Toxins inside of your body are unhealthy pollutants. Just like air pollution or unnatural chemicals polluting a stream, toxins pollute your blood, lungs, and organs.
Providing the necessary trace minerals that circulate throughout your blood, lungs, and organs keeps your tissues strong, and keeps your body oxygenated, while they help balance your pH, which prevents disease.
The trace minerals are especially important when exposed to radiation, which zaps your body of all of the above.
Hair Mineral Testing Shows Trace Minerals
Once you discover what your essential nutrient and trace mineral levels show, then you can design your daily diet appropriately, and buy the right kind of vitamin and mineral supplements.
Ah, knowledge is such a powerful thing ….. and trace minerals are, too.
