HJ: Nerve transmissions are very minor, but powerful and important electric charges — the body runs on subtle currents which require the proper minerals and metals for their transmission. The body maintains a precise electrolyte balance which is used to facilitate many processes, not the least of which is the proper transmission of nervous system impulses/data. For those who don’t know, electrolytes are ionic minerals and metals in suspension. This primordial fluid is essential for life as we know it.
Furthermore, it is possible to have it thrown out of balance by lifestyle, poor eating habits and drinking water, and over exertion, among other things. By understanding the various roles these essential minerals and metals have in the mind-body-spirit triad, we can learn to identify which of them may need special attention at any given time.
Now, some of you may be alarmed by the fact that there are heavy metals showing up on this list, as you have been taught that these are, in fact, dangerous and detrimental to health. They are in high doses, however, the body does need them in trace amounts. You can supplement these heavy metals safely through the use of a trace minerals supplement or through the regular use of unrefined, high quality mineral salts. For the best quality trace mineral supplements, we highly recommend Mother Earth Minerals. For high quality unrefined salts we recommend Palm Island Premium sea salts.
