Minerals are one of the deep secrets of Spiritual Nutrition. Minerals are frequencies of Light, frequencies of information, and frequencies of creation for the material world in the universe in which we live. The Earth is made of minerals. Our body is made of minerals. Minerals activate all the catalysts for enzymatic reactions in the body. They activate the vitamins. They activate all the organ structures, and in fact, are the basis of all the organ and cellular structures of the body. Minerals are the builders of the system. They are the frequency rates in the system. They are not necessarily the energy makers, however. The human body is composed entirely of minerals and water. The water molecule is the one that acts as a powerful solvent within the human system, bringing in nutrients and washing out waste particles. Without the essential minerals and trace minerals, we could not survive.
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. 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.”1 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.”
For a mineral to be utilized at the intracellular level, it must be in an angstrom-size (that is, so infinitesimal it is measured in units of angstroms), and these particles must be completely water-soluble. It is only the ionic form, or angstrom-size level, of minerals that can enter the cells and activate the proper DNA structures to actuate the guiding frequencies for the function of the body. An angstrom (named after Johan Angstrom) is one-thousandth of a micron, and one-millionth of a meter. The significance of this information is that almost all the mineral supplements on the market are larger than micron sizes. Now, it can get a little confusing, but think about it this way: Particles that are micron in size and larger will be absorbed by the blood, but they are too large to be absorbed intracellularly and inside the nucleus. These larger forms stay in the bloodstream, and eventually become deposited in various tissue locations. Angstrom-size particles travel through the cells, and if the body doesn’t need them, it will simply discharge them with no buildup of the minerals to create potential toxicity in the tissues.
We observe that the roots of the plants are designed to break down the soil and utilize and absorb mineral particles, at angstrom-size – that’s what they do. With the help of fulvic acid in the humus material, plants are able to take these minerals in, and break them down into angstromsize, which they use. Once we understand that, we understand that the vegetables we eat transfer angstrom-size minerals from the soil to us via the plants. They do not absorb larger-size particles, because they cannot assimilate them. Angstrom-size minerals are key to optimal mineral absorption. It takes about twelve years for farmland to become deficient of angstrom-size trace minerals. For this reason, farmers would often move every twelve years. These excess minerals of micron-size or larger can cause a variety of problems. The paradox, which is hard to understand, is that while the tissues are full of minerals in a sense, the cell is lacking in the angstrom-size minerals. This is one reason why we can use salt (Himalayan or Celtic sea salt) products for our bodies with amazing results, because they are in ionic angstrom-sizes. If salt isn’t in the ionic form, we simply aren’t able to absorb minerals into our bodies. Table salt (straight sodium chloride) as well as any heated salt is covalently bonded. It is not available for use in the body and can cause a toxic build-up. This may also potentially apply to salts that are sun dried. The process of sun drying, like many other forms of heating, causes electrons not to be available and the ions to form more tight bonds that make them inaccessible for assimilation. If salt creates a savory and watery feeling in the mouth, then it is still ionic. If it dries the mouth, this suggests that it has converted to the less assimilable covalent form. Although larger mineral forms or covalently bonded salt may help us initially on one level, eventually they have the potential of building up to toxic overload. Paradoxically, one of the most effective ways to pull out these accumulated minerals is to provide the same mineral in an angstrom-size. Angstrom-size minerals act as building blocks for the more than six thousand different enzymes needed for optimal function in our bodies. If we don’t have the proper minerals for those enzymes to work in the particular organs that are needed, we do not, in a sense, have the cellular building materials for repair and regeneration of our tissues. For example, in diabetes, because of all the refined foods that are eaten, we have created a deficiency of chromium because chromium seems to be lost from eating refined foods. When we are taking in lots of carbohydrates and need chromium to help metabolize the sugar and to make the insulin work correctly, we are forced to use up our chromium stores and consequently become chromium deficient. When we eat junk foods, or food that is from depleted soils and synthetic fertilizers, we really aren’t able to metabolize the sugars and carbohydrates properly. This adds to a diabetic condition. It is no accident that there has been a 33 percent increase in diabetes in the last ten years and a prediction of 29 million to have it by the year 2050. An estimated 16 million people now have pre-diabetes.
In essence, minerals take us to the very formation of life. All qualities of positive or negative health can be traced back to a lack of minerals. In order for us to get adequate mineralization, the minerals need to be in angstrom-size form, which is 0.001 micron. They need to be attached to covalent hydrogen in the water, which will pull them inside the cell. It is at the intracellular level where the action happens. When the minerals reach the nucleus and mitochondria of the cell, there’s a transmutation on the cellular level that activates the DNA. The nucleus and the mitochondria are both the energy centers and the creative centers of the cell. Mitochondria also have a particular form of DNA, which is different than nuclear DNA. The minerals activate the primordial DNA. These minerals activate electromagnetic communications both intracellularly and extracellularly that organize the system and communicate about what activities must be done. Some of the DNA frequencies are received in the cell wall. The minerals, and in particular a mineral complex developed by Dr. Tru Ott called Ultimatium, which is a combination of the platinum group metals, activate small strands of DNA attached to the larger chromosome complexes. These small strands of DNA are like antennae of the DNA. These also need the iridium molecule, which is the key element in Ultimatium, to send out the proper electromagnetic communication, and to reorganize and heal the DNA structures and the frequencies. Minerals are therefore needed for all levels of intra- and extracellular communication that emanates from the DNA and for the repair of the DNA.
Mineral Depletion in Plant Food
There are specific mineral requirements for cell nutrition. The number one mineral is oxygen. It is the connection of the symbiosis between the plant and animal worlds. It is obvious that calcium is needed for bone production and function of the parathyroid glands. Iodine is needed for the thyroid to function. Iron is needed for hemoglobin production. And so on. The overall generalization is that all disease stems from the weakening of the organism and subsequent parasitic (virus, bacteria, fungus, bowel parasites) infections. Adequate mineralization protects us against this disease process by strengthening the biological terrain. One of the problems we began to face early in the 1920s is plant disease arising from soil depletion. For example, a gray speck on oats indicating deficient manganese, or rosette disease in fruit trees due to zinc deficiency. The point is that plants need proper nutrition, and when they don’t get it, they are prone to disease – just like humans. For healthy plant life, corn requires about forty-eight minerals, and wheat and oats utilize about thirty-six minerals. Soybeans, apples, pears, and peaches take more than thirty elements from the soil. Most vegetables, including peas, potatoes, tomatoes, carrots, and lettuce, require more than twenty-five elements from the soil. Repeatedly used ground that is not regenerated gets depleted. The foods that grow in it get depleted as a result, and therefore the humans and animals that are eating those foods also get depleted.
In essence, we can say that the soil in the United States, and in probably most of the world, is overworked and underfed. The result is diseased plants and sick animals. This is the result of the failure to replace the elements taken out during the growing cycles. This can be called the law of soil exhaustion. This imbalance is amplified by creating a glut of food with our high technology, pulling more energy and minerals from the soil than it can offer. The cycle gets worse with the soil becoming further depleted of trace elements and the animals lacking vital essentials for their health. Rain, which was once our friend, and in many ways still is, becomes a problem because the rain further carries the elements from the soil to the sea. The increased soil exhaustion creates exhausted and diseased plants, exhausted and diseased animals, and exhausted and diseased human beings. Roughly it’s been estimated, according to Sea Energy Agriculture, that Australia loses about six tons of topsoil per square mile, Europe loses 120 tons per square mile, and on a worldwide basis, we lose 4 billion tons of dissolved material that is carried off to the sea from the rivers each year. The soluble elements are washed off first by the rainwater. This is why sodium chloride is so scarce on the land and abundant in the sea.
