Natural Healing Springs Are High In Ionic Mineral Content
In the history of the world, water is the most healing substance on the planet. Water in nature is best when it comes out of a spring. When we look at the world’s healing hot springs and mineral springs known for their curative properties, we will observe that they are extremely high in sulfate mineral content. Moreover, these minerals are always in the form, concentration and proportion that the body needs.
The Root Causes Of Every Diseases Are Chronic Water & Mineral Deficiencies
No matter what conventional medicine calls the different disease conditions that plaque mankind, the root causes of these conditions are water deficiencies as well as mineral deficiencies. According to Dr F Batmanghelidj MD, renowned expert in hydration and human health, inadequate water intake can lead to serious allergies and degenerative diseases including diabetes and cancers. A lack of water in the body also contribute to shortages of essential minerals as water is a carrier of nutrients in the body.
Two times Nobel Laureate, Dr Linus Pauling, once said “You could trace every disease and every ailment to a mineral deficiency.” It is well known that the human body requires a full spectrum of minerals in order to maintain optimal health. The prevalence of sicknesses and disease in the world is really the result of scarcity of good water and the consumption mineral deficient, modern foods.
What Are Minerals?
All minerals come from the earth’s soil. As plants grow, minerals are absorbed from the soil through their root systems. Non-living minerals from the earth are then transformed inside the plants cells into “living” minerals which our bodies can utilize. They become a “living” part of the plant.
Generally, we received minerals into our body through a diet of plants, and meats of animals that eat plants. We also take in minerals from dissolved minerals in our drinking water from natural water sources. Minerals are extremely important for our well-being. They are essential building blocks. Without minerals, there will be no life on earth.
Importance Of Ionic Minerals
Dissolved minerals are electrically active or ionic in nature, and can be utilized by the body. In contrast, free or rock minerals are insoluble and are not bio available. Our body can only assimilate plant derived minerals that are enzymatically active and water soluble. Due to volcanic activities and other natural processes, mineral water from springs also contain dissolved minerals that are ionic in nature and are thus useable by the body.
Although some are very rare, there are more than 100 known mineral elements found on earth. Scientists classify minerals into two groups, major minerals and trace minerals. There are 6 major minerals — calcium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, sulphur, sodium and chlorine and our body requires significant amount of each. Trace minerals, on the other hand, are required in very small amounts. Trace minerals include iron, selenium, silicon, zinc, copper and manganese.
Minerals are required for every bio-chemical and enzymatic activity within our body.
- Without minerals neither vitamin nor enzyme would benefit. The body can utilize minerals without vitamins, but vitamins and most other nutrients are basically useless in the absence of minerals.
- Trace minerals as also known “gene minerals” because they are necessary to turn on or off people’s genes so that they work optimally.
- Minerals activate the enzymatic processes throughout our bodies.
- Minerals regulate every organ and function in our body.
- Proper breathing depends on minerals.
- Mental and physical ability depend on minerals.
- Heart and blood pressure stabilization is directly related to minerals.
- Minerals also help the body better utilize oxygen to cope with stress.
- Human metabolism is also closely connected with minerals.
- Minerals help the body to detoxify. They are necessary for the chelation of heavy metals and other harmful substances from the body.
We need a full spectrum of minerals including both major and trace minerals for optimal health.
Widespread Mineral Deficiencies In Our Food Due To Commercial Agriculture
Our water and soil are contaminated by germicides, weed killers, rodent poisons, other agricultural chemicals and industrial waste. Soil bacteria which play a vital role in the maintenance of nutrients in our top soil are being destroyed. In mass producing food, we reap crops that are depleted of essential and trace minerals.
According to Dr. Hisatake Nojima, M.D, author of Mineral Deficiency and Illnesses, modern day diseases are nothing more than the result of mineral-deficient crops, produced with today’s farming techniques. To live a long, healthy disease-free life, we need simply to ensure ample hydration with good mineral water.
