The Effect of Trace Mineral Balance on Nutrient Absorption
The human body requires about 100 elements. This mineral wheel shows some of the most important elements needed by the body and the interrelationships between these elements. The major minerals, electrolytic minerals, and many other trace minerals are represented.
The lines and arrows connect specific minerals to others. Every mineral has synergistic and antagonistic counterparts. If you have too much or not enough of a specific mineral, it will affect the counterpart causing a mineral deficiency or excess that may be toxic.
An arrow pointing to a particular mineral means that an excess of that mineral may cause a deficiency of the mineral the arrow is coming from. For example, an excess of calcium can cause decreased absorption of Phosphorus, Zinc, Magnesium, and Manganese. The same thing happens in farming soils. Too much or too little of any nutrient results in sick plants, animals, and humans. Read the United Senate Document #264 (there is a link to it on the upper left of this page) and see how mineral deficiencies in soils result in mineral deficiencies in plants which results in mineral deficiencies and diseases in those who eat those plants.
There are many factors that cause disease, such as pollution, acid rain, electro-magnetic fields, pathogens (disease-causing organisms), lack of correct nutrition stemming from: mineral depletion of our agricultural soils, refining of foods as in white flour and white sugar, lack of enzymes, and so on. But the real main causes of disease are just two:
1. Ignorance. "I didn''t know drinking soda pop or coffee could lead to cancer!" 2. Indifference. "Yeah, I know that smoking cigarettes is killing me, but I like them...and you have to die of something!"
The lack of seemingly insignificant trace minerals in our diets can be killing us and cutting our lifespans in half, but ignorance and indifference is the real reason for our demise. This is true is because there is something you can do about it! Degenerative disease is not something you just get, as if you were terribly unlucky, in the wrong place at the wrong time. Degenerative disease is the direct result of diet and lifestyle. With knowledge and application, you can have optimum health even in this polluted environment.
You don''t have to get cancer or any other degenerative disease!
My mission is to help people learn the Principles of Health and help them stick with them. I am with HTN only because they have something no other company has. Their biological information is more accurate and their products are very much better than anything else I have ever seen. But this is not medicine or a treatment or a cure for any disease or disorder. The only reason any person can ever overcome any disease is because the body has the ability to heal itself - when all the nutrients it requires are provided in proper forms and proper balance, the right mental attitude is maintained, and the proper internal environment for the cells is maintained within the body. If we are ignorant or indifferent the result will always eventually be the same: sickness leading to death. It is a natural law that we will reap what we sow. Like the law of gravity: if you step off the edge of a building, you will fall, even if you are unaware of the law. If your body becomes acidic because you drink soda or coffee, or because you don''t give your body the trace minerals it needs, disease will be the result, whether you aware of the law or not. You are what you eat and absorb into your body. That never changes. When science and the Bible tell us the same thing, that we can live to 120 years, why do we live, on the average, to just over half? Remember that for every person that lives to one hundred there is one that dies at thirty! That''s how averages are calculated.
This was brought home to me recently, when I was asked to look at a competitor''s product and comment on it. I looked at the minerals that were added and saw eleven and in forms the body had to convert before they could be used, and calcium in the form of calcium carbonate. Calcium carbonate will yield about four percent ionic (bioavailable) calcium after going through the digestive process. It is basically the same as blackboard chalk. I said, "Where are the other sixty-four essential minerals?"
Too high or too low amounts of any mineral will cause negative problems adversely affecting the absorption of all the other minerals. It is easy to see why people who think they are getting everything they need through their diets and nutritional supplementation are getting diseases.
When you take food supplements that are supposed to be providing you with everything you should be getting from your food (and are not) and those supplements don''t even come close, you are being deceived. No doctor or scientist could ever develop a dietary supplement that contains all the minerals in the proper forms and proportions for optimum absorption. That''s what is so exciting about HTN''s Coral Calcium.
The chemical analysis of the Sango Coral is nearly identical to that of human bone. So close is Sango Coral to human bone that it is regularly used by surgeons around the world in bone grafts, and the body does not reject it. Minerals are key to optimum health.
Heart disease is the number one killer in America, and cancer is right behind at number two. We are clearly losing the war against these diseases. And with more than 153 additional known diseases, it is easy to see that we are on the wrong track. With all the people taking supplements and supposedly eating balanced diets, why is disease still so prevalent? If even half of those people really were getting what they needed, the disease rate would be nowhere near what it is today.
The next chart shows the elements that naturally occur in Sango Coral Calcium. I''m sure there will be elements you did not even know existed. And you may look at the chart and say, "But it has arsenic and lead!" But your body needs minute quantities of even these minerals.
It is because of imbalances that we have problems. When everything is in proper balance, the organs and glands will be operating perfectly, and perfect health will be the only outcome. The circulatory system can carry oxygen and nutrients to the cells and carbon dioxide and other waste products away from the cells to the organs of elimination which are working perfectly. The immune system is operating perfectly and able to detect and destroy pathogens and other invading material. The digestive system can efficiently extract nutrition from the foods you eat... and so on. Why would anyone want to throw a moneky wrench into such a marvelous system? Yet they do it all the time - because of ignorance and indifference. Tens of thousands of people use HTN''s Coral Calcium (There are over 85,000 Members in HTN.) as part of their nutrition program, and every one of them has a story of improved health, from every imaginable disease.
Scientists are just beginning to learn the importance of some of these minerals. We always had a need for these minerals. They used to be in our food, but no more. Because of soil depletion, the foods that come from the soil are depleted of these valuable trace minerals, and therefore our bodies are deficient, and degenerative disease is rampant.
Praseodymium and Yttrium have doubled the lifespan of laboratory animals. Rubidium and Cesium have proven successful against cancer in both animals and humans. Zinc is essential for wound healing and also in the production of Super-oxide-dismutase (SOD)(the most important anti-oxidant naturally made by the body). Iron is crucial for hemoglobin as is copper. Germanium is an adaptogenic mineral that helps fight all diseases. All of these minerals have a purpose and function in the human body. You can study each of these minerals and find out exactly what they do in the body. But that is not necessary, unless you want to be a scientist. Getting the minerals into your body in a form your body can use and in the proper proportions to one another is the important thing. You don''t want to take a Praseodymium supplement or even a Calcium supplement. You want a supplement that contains all the essential minerals in bioavailable form and proper proportions. And there is only one product that meets these criteria in the whole world.
HTN''s Coral Calcium is the only way to go. It has been used safely for at least a thousand years, enriching all the cultures that used it from Japan, to Spain, to the United States of America. The popularity of Coral Calcium is exploding now in th US, because it works. Coral Calcium is the best-selling nutritional supplement of all time!
HTN was the first to bring Coral Calcium here, and it''s product is still the best by far, proven by its effectiveness and through scientific studies using analyses of the Oxygen Reduction Potential that measures the electrical charge of a liquid. HTN''s Ionic Coral Calcium is produces by a patented process that removes impurities and is certified contaminant-free. No other coral product, even other coral products from Okinawa, can make this claim.
There have been significant advancements in health and hygiene over the past hundred years, and the average lifespan of humans has gradually increased. But the quality of life has gone down. Alzheimer''s Disease was unknown sixty years ago. The cancer rate was at just three percent one hundred years ago. Today it is thirty-three percent for women and fifty percent for men. Most of the increase in longevity can be attributed to the fact that infant mortality has been drastically reduced (which removes a lot of zeros, ones, and twos out of the average). Effective critical care can be more quickly administered to those having heart attacks, seizures, or accidents, thanks to better communication and transportation. A great variety of food is available year round, and food storage methods are vastly improved. And most important, deaths from infectious diseases has declined dramatically. With immunizations, improved sanitation, and a panoply of "wonder" drugs, medicine can now keep a diseased person alive longer, but it has not won the battle against a single degenerative disease.
During the times when people were dying in great numbers from infections diseases, degenerative diseases were virtually non-existent. Now that we have all this improved technology, and we are not dying of polio, cholera, scurvy, or starvation, why aren''t we living even close to our potential, which is 120 years? It''s time to wake up! We would be living close to our potential, if there were no degenerative diseases!
Our most dangerous enemies are ignorance and indifference. And where do these enemies live? In our own minds! But they can be defeated through knowledge and application.
Do it for yourself and for those you care about!
