Mineral deficiency underlies disease

Posted by Melissa Callaghan on

Minerals are the key foundation for functions in the body.

Of a total of 90 minerals, there are approximately 23 key minerals, including 16 major minerals and 7 minor trace minerals. These are needed for the body to function at the highest level. The essential trace minerals, as well as major minerals, need to be replaced in the system through water-soluble ionic forms either food or in severe deficiency via supplementation.

As early as 1936, the U.S. Senate declared, “99 percent of the American people are deficient in minerals, and a marked deficiency in any one of the more important minerals actually results in disease.”

According to Dr Gabriel Cousens - "This is one of the most intelligent things that has ever come out of the U.S. Senate, and something that was beyond even the scope of medical school."

Now, many years later, we are subjected to junk foods, foods that have been pesticided and herbicided, microwaved foods, and increasingly mineral-deficient soils. The situation has only gotten worse. This is why most everyone needs mineral supplementation, whether they are vegan or meat eater.

Dr. Linus Pauling, winner of two Nobel prizes, said, “You can trace every sickness, every disease, and every ailment, ultimately, to a mineral deficiency.”

Disease processes can begin at a cellular level, Cells require many nutrients to maintain balance and deficiencies leave the cells open to the beginnings of disease.  The lowest common denominator of the signs and symptoms experienced are usually mineral deficiencies.

As a Naturopath there are key signs and symptoms that we look for to assess your potential mineral deficiency.  A treatment plan is then designed specifically to your needs to help you catch up and start to feel better. I help you move forward on your health journey with new knowledge on how to maintain your mineral levels
