FEATURE: Minerals In Chemistry Of Body-Mind

TV ads tell us calcium supplements are the cat’s whiskers. Hopefully you know it’s a lie. Your experience is that balanced bones, balanced bodies, come only from balanced foods!

Did you know:

— no group of enzymes will lift a finger without their mineral buddies;
— we need minerals in balance and in proportion to each other;
— when we swallow too much of a mineral, or eat a food that robs us of minerals, we end up with both an excess and a deficiency of the same mineral at the same time;
— home-dried foods from a Dehydrator give us the widest variety of organic minerals (and juicing of course);
— the 9-tray Excalibur Dehydrator will make more mineral-rich snacks at one time than any other dehydrator in the world today.


You can eat all the enzymes in the world, but if the right minerals aren’t there, those enzymes won’t work — not that they’re dysfunctional, they’re simply mineral-challenged!

Enzymes are our worker proteins, but in fact ALL proteins will NOT work without their minerals. You know this, you know a structural protein like collagen in bone is useless without its interlocking minerals such as calcium and phosphorus.

A transport protein like hemoglobin in blood must have its core of iron, to carry oxygen along. Messenger proteins (neurotransmitters) depend entirely on sodium and potassium to flick the nerve signal their way.

Uniquely, minerals are the only part of our diet that can’t be created by any living being. With everything else — proteins, vitamins, fats, sugars — some little cell somewhere will string carbon, hydrogen and oxygen together to make the needed chemical. If a plant does the job, we call it a phytochemical.

Not even a cow can make calcium. Wide-eyed beauty that she is, a cow must still eat her calcium from a field of grass.

Minerals are little rocks, naked to the human eye (or to be 100% exact, they’re the main constituent of rocks). Water pushing itself up through rocks and soil, leaches out their minerals and washes them into the ocean — which is why sea vegetables are the richest source of minerals.

The late Dr. Ann Wigmore advised us to eat two tablespoons of sea vegetables a day unless you’re allergic to iodine. Begin with raw kelp, dulse and nori.


Plants excrete fulvic acid to bind the soil minerals and absorb them as a complex into the plant root. It’s this acid that begins the process of turning inorganic rocks into organic minerals, delicately weaved into living tissue.

If you need a mineral supplement short-term, look for one with fulvic acid to help with its absorption. Fulvic acid will also chelate heavy metals out of your body.

Some say that minerals are the life-carriers, others say it’s the
enzymes. Others again, like myself, say it’s neither — Life is a
separate power, motionless yet the source of all movement, untouched by anything in this world.

Joe Alexander in “Blatant Raw Foodist Propaganda!” expresses it: “those raw foodists who are shy about sticking their necks out … can go on talking about enzymes, but I am convinced myself that it is the corruption of the life-force in cooked foods that is the foremost reason why cooked food is bad for us.”

In my experience, Life is surrendering me to It. Little me isn’t doing the surrendering. All I can do is make myself fully available, so I’ll experience the Wonder. It reminds me of a poster I once saw, of sunlight shining through the trees, and underneath the words: “Don’t run, go slowly, you’ve only as far as yourself to go.”

At that point, when we’ve stopped running away, we’re ready for service. Main thing is to take the right steps every day, and ignore all the “wrong” you do. For me, that means eating and drinking living greens daily to keep my body-mind in balance, and quietly relaxing for an hour a day and focusing inside (http://www.tprf.org).

Anyway, some folks say minerals are the life-spark, so I thought you should know that. It indicates what a high value they place on minerals. There’s nothing higher on this earth than LIFE.

Dr. Bernard Jensen writes in his introduction to Gillian Martlew’s book, “Electrolytes the Spark of Life”: “The point when minerals become alive is when electrolytes split. All cellular structures become alive through electrolytic activity. Life begins with electrolytes. Trace minerals carry the life force in our bodies more than any other substance.”

Powerful stuff! Martlew defines electrolytes as “trace minerals in
solution in water, combined in such a way that they conduct electricity.”

In “The Biochemic Handbook”, medical doctors Chapman and Perry write: “The inorganic constituents of the cell .. these cell salts … are the vital portions of the body, the workers, the builders; the water and organic substances [proteins, fats, vitamins, carbs, etc] forming the remainder of the organism are simply inert matter used by these salts in building the cells of the body.”

So you see, an entire school of thought out there is saying it’s
minerals that build the cells of life! And minerals that carry the spark of life. So you better eat your minerals…:)


Raw-foodists Just Say No to supplements, except wholefood concentrates like raw juice powders, e.g. grass juice cold-dried not freeze-dried — freezing destroys enzymes the same way heat does.

Balance is the key to all our systems purring along optimally. It’s not what you take in, it’s how balanced it is. When we eat or drink anything unbalanced, like a calcium tablet, we upset the balance and synergy every cell is striving for.

We turn a house made over by Oprah (the interior decorator is Mother Nature’s wisdom) into a house made over by an earthquake — all the parts are there, but the Beauty’s gone.

Only living foods are fully balanced — food still growing when you eat it. Then raw foods and rawfood concentrates are pretty well balanced.

Minerals are the most sensitive of all to Balance. They will work only in proportion to each other. Nancy Appleton in “Lick the Sugar Habit” reports that dentist Dr. Melvin Page found if he could get his patient’s calcium/phosphorus ratio to be 10 to 4 — that’s 2.5 times more calcium than phosphorus — their tooth decay and bone loss would stop.

Sugar causes phosphorus to plummet. Say there’s 4 molecules of phosphorus and 10 of calcium in your blood. Then you eat sugar, and a poor osteoblast (bone-cell) can get only 2 phosphorus to build bone, because the other 2 were conscripted into the GI tract to digest the sugar (GI = gastro-intestinal).

Now your bone-cell can use only 5 of calcium, with its 2 phosphorus. So 5 molecules of calcium are left useless in the blood, while your bones cry out in desperate need of more calcium. There you have it — an excess and deficiency of the same mineral at the same time!

Excess is another word for toxic. Now what happens to this toxic calcium? Our body plops it down into knobbly arthritic joints, bone spurs, brittle arteries, kidney stones and cataracts.

This is how a person can have joints swollen hard with calcium, and osteoporosis at the same time. She’s not eating her minerals in balance, e.g. eating yogurt or cheese (excess calcium with no magnesium). And she’s eating foods that unbalance the minerals even further, like sugar.

Excess calcium in a cell leads to fatigue too. Enzymes needed for the Krebs energy cycle have to leave their job and rush to bail out some of the calcium, like too much water in a canoe (when they should be busy rowing the canoe). I read that in “Molecular Biology of the Cell” by ruce Alberts et al. Please don’t drink animal milk. Drink SEED milks!


On offer at the food buffet are minerals in three forms:

(1) metallic minerals derived from oyster shell, calcium carbonate, limestone, dolomite, clay, ground-up rocks and soil, crystals, sea salts and salt lakes; this class includes the laboratory-made chelated minerals, where protein is wrapped around the metallic minerals to help the body absorb them;

(2) dead plant minerals derived from prehistoric plant deposits or humic shale;

(3) living plant minerals in raw and living foods.

The colloidal and crystalloid liquids and gels are made from (1) or (2) — metallic minerals or dead humus.

Do you want dead rock, dead plant, or living plant in you? The more raw foods in your diet, the more quickly you evolve into choosing LIFE. The colloids and caplets fall away.

Ann Wigmore wrote that mineral supplements are okay short-term (for three months) to correct an obvious imbalance. In the late 90’s I took MSM and the dents in my nails went away. Today I get sulfur from cabbage juice in my daily green drink, and bean sprouts, no MSM.

The difference between living plant minerals and colloidal minerals is huge. A plant mineral is anywhere from several thousand to a million times smaller than the smallest metallic mineral. The average plant mineral is less than 0.00001 micron in size (a micron is a millionth of a meter or yard). Ten thousand plant minerals fit into one red blood cell, and three million red blood cells are in a single drop of blood.

One red blood cell contains more than 200 million molecules of
hemoglobin, each of which need one atom of iron. Our bone marrow produces about 100 billion red blood cells every hour. Iron is in so many raw foods — leafy greens, beets, sprouted grains and beans, nuts and seeds, dried fruit with pips, and seaweeds, that I’ve never yet met an anemic raw foodist! Indeed we have dynamite energy.

The small size of plant minerals gives them a huge surface area, so you get billions of tiny electrically-charged minerals when you eat one raw fig bar.

Plant minerals are water-soluble and negatively charged, which makes for easy absorption through the intestinal membrane.

Metallic minerals are hydrophobic (water-insoluble) with a positive charge. If you drink 2 grains of free iodine, it will kill you. But in its plant form in sea vegetables, iodine is essential for a purr-along metabolic rate.

Plant minerals are in fact so different from metal elements that it’s about time science gave them a different name.


Dried food is the most exciting way to get minerals IN BALANCE. Exciting because it tastes good and it’s great to share with friends.

Nothing turns a friend on more than raw fig bars, cashew-date leather, or home-dried apple or banana — well at least turns them on to raw foods!

You get MORE minerals in dried foods because all the water’s gone, which is 70% of the cells. So you get both QUANTITY and BALANCE.

Dehydrating gives you more nutrients for less digestive work, just like juicing. It’s so easy to snack on a few fig bars made from living plants in your very own Dehydrator. Compare that to gorging on all those plants if they were still plumped up with water, especially the sprouted grain. It would take forever to chew on the grains, nuts, seeds and figs in a fig bar.

To me, it’s not possible to get enough minerals if you don’t include dehydrated foods and juices in your life. Double Noble Laureate Dr. Linus Pauling said: “One could trace every sickness, every disease and every ailment to a mineral deficiency” (quoted in “The Power of Plant Derived Minerals” by Elmer Heinrich).

Heinrich also writes: “I have witnessed thousands of people lose weight naturally, and I mean lots of weight, after they began to consume a full spectrum of 70 or more minerals on a daily basis.”

When you get the right kitchen equipment — a Dehydrator, a Sprouter and a Juicer — and choose ORGANIC plant foods, you will enjoy every mineral you need, more than 70, in perfect harmony.

There’s over three thousand known minerals, and who knows how many we need? Only plants hide that secret. Buy your veggies, fruits and Sprouter seeds from mineral-rich organic soils.

    Q: Many vitamins and minerals websites indicate that their products have been tested and actually contain what they claim to contain; what are your protocols on manufacturing? Are your herbs organically grown? Thank you.


    Organic/Wild-crafted Herbs? Dherbs.Com only utilizes organic and wild-crafted herbs in its formulas and compounds. Although organic herbs are always not available, we order our herbs in advance to make sure we keep our products full of 100% organic herbs as well as 100% wild-crafted herbs. At Dherbs.Com, we go the extra mile for our customers and we stay on top of our game to bring the customer the best product available! No other herbal company uses as many herbs as we use in our formulas nor does any other herbal company or business use the degree of rare and exotic herbs as we use in our formulas. At Dherbs.Com, without a doubt, you get the BEST and for LESS! Gelatin Capsules? Dherbs.Com only uses vegetarian (vegan) capsules made from 100% plant fiber as Dherbs.Com has a policy to not use animal or animal byproduct ingredients in the manufacturing of its products. Gelatin capsules are derived from animals (mostly pig) and are thus not vegan or even halal or kosher. Also, gelatin capsules do not fully dissolve in the stomach like vegetarian capsules. Most herbal companies use gelatin capsules because they are cheap, costing 2-3 times less than vegetarian capsules. Dherbs.Com does not let high prices or expenses stand in our way of bringing people the Best, the Safest, and the Soundest! Dherbs.Com is people first! Tablets? Dherbs.Com does not use tablets because tablets require the mixing of too many additives in order to make the tablet stick together or bind and come out a certain way, i.e. dense, smooth surface, etc. Capsules allow us at Dherbs.Com to give our customers 100% pure herbal ingredients held together in a 100% digestible vegetarian capsule for maximum absorbency in the body. Preservatives? Dherbs.Com uses absolutely no preservatives in any of its products as the only thing that needs to be preserved are “dead†things and herbs are not dead, but living (living foods), therefore that which is alive does not need to be preserved so Dherbs.Com does not and will not use preservatives in any of its formulas. Fillers? Many herbal companies use fillers in their formulas as a way to cut down on giving the customer 100% herbal content. Dherbs.Com is against this custom. Fillers may help the encapsulation process by making a formula more dense for encapsulation, but fillers have no nutritional content so when you add them to herbal compounds, they take away from the compound. Fillers help the encapsulation company and herbal company, but not the customer. Fillers water down the product! Dherbs.Com is against this process and custom. Binders? Dherbs.om does not use binders as we have no need for binders. Many herbal companies use binders to help certain ingredients bind together, but at Dherbs.Com, we use 100% herbal content and so our ingredients naturally bind together. Additives Dherbs.Com does not use any additives in any of its formulas. Additives water down the product and take away from the efficacy of a product that utilizes natural compounds. Additives help herbal companies save money by giving the customer less herb per capsule or tablet. Solvents? Dherbs.Com uses absolutely no chemical solvents in the use of its liquid herbal extracts or crystal elixirs. Our extracts are uniquely made via natural agitation (by human hand) and natural sunlight (solar energy) and our elixirs are also made by human hand and exposed to moon and sunlight. It takes us approximately two (2) weeks to produce a liquid extract compound because Nature requires time to produce what she produces. However, other herbal companies are like major fast food restaurants and need a quick supply of products for their standard of convenience and thus use harmful chemical solvents to quickly produce their herbal liquid extracts. At Dherbs.Com, though convenience is important to us, however, we won’t compromise the integrity of our products to help people get a quick fix and to make a quick buck. Patience is a requisite of Nature and Dherbs.Com is in tune with Nature. Dherbs.Com will NEVER use chemical solvents in the production of its herbal liquid extracts or crystal elixirs. Standardization? Dherbs.Com does not utilize standardization in any of its formulas. Standardization is an unnatural process whereby a standardized herb provides uniformity of a single plant chemical. A standardized extract delivers a quantified and measurable level of the targeted active ingredient (major alkaloid) in every serving and in which this active ingredient is considered by science to be the key ingredient responsible for the herbs health benefits. Other herbal companies trust man-made science, but Dherbs.Com trusts in and relies upon Nature. Other Ingredients? The phrase “other ingredients†is simply an umbrella term for “additives†and other herbal companies use other ingredients (i.e., magnesium stearate, microcrystalline cellulose, silica, rice powder, stearic acid, etc.) in their formulas to simply cut the volume of herbs in their formulas. Other ingredients take up space or room in the capsule or tablet and this allows the company to save money while giving their customers a watered down product. Are Dherbs.Com Herbs Safe To Take? Absolutely! It’s like asking, “is real food (i.e. fruits and vegetables) safe to eat? Herbs are noble foods in powdered or liquid form. They are 100% organic, digestible, and assimilable by the human body (unlike harmful, man-made pharmaceutical drugs which toxify the human body). People should actually ask their doctors “are these drugs safe to take?†instead of asking about herbs being safe to take. It is drugs (legal drugs, O-T-C) that kill hundreds of thousands of people per year whereas 0% herbs are killing people per year. Can You Take Other Dherbs.Com Products Together? Of course (unless you are performing one of our kits and regimens)! That’s like asking can you eat lettuce with tomatoes and carrots in a salad! If you are not performing one of our kits and regimens, i.e. Full Body Detox, Anti-Viral, or Weight Release, you can take our formulas together. You can drink our teas before or after taking our capsule formulas. It’s actually best to space out the formulas, but if you need to take everything together, you can. You have free will here and it will not hurt you or mess up the efficacy of the herbs. Not at all!

    Q: I purchased the Multi vitamins and minerals because I'm trying to go all natural with majority of the products that I use. anyhow, my question is how can this formula provide every essential vitamin that most otc vitamins if the ingredients don't specify which vitamin they represent and its mg or IU (amt per serving).


    OTC minerals don't provide all 102 minerals even in oxide form let alone organic form. We use plants, various plants, considered nutritive in that they contain a FULL spectrum on nutrients. Full spectrum means encompassing all and because you use different herbs, the nutrients one herb lacks the other contains. Also, Dherbs doesn't deal in RDA levels for nutrients, i.e. mg, grams, etc.

    Q: Thanks for the great web site! MY question is what's the best way to get sodium. I thought un-refined sea salt was the best, but the salt article says "eat this salt only if you must." The great thing about pure sea salt is that it all or almost all the minerals the body needs! So what's the best way to get all the mineral and to stay in balance? Also is there a way to get Epsom salt that is sodium sulfate not magnesium sulfate? Is it a good idea to bath in the "good" Epsom salt.


    You're welcome, Beloved!

    The best way to get sodium is via vegetables (i.e. celery).

    Sea salt is great source of sodium, but its a secondary source as it has to be processed from ocean water. Absent the process, it would not be available.

    But it does provide minute amounts of trace elements.

    In re Epsom salt, I haven't been able to find the sodium one.

    I stopped using Epsom salt many years ago.

    You could bath in the good Epsom salt, but sea salt is far better and more natural.

    Q: Is clay water good for the body system? I've been told that it has minerals that the body needs. Is this true?


    Clay water is good to drink for health purposes. It really doesn't have minerals for absorption as it mostly pulls harmful elements from your body. For minerals, take herbs. Visit our on-line store to get an idea or on our site do a SEARCH for minerals.

    Q: Can I Supplement Vitamins and Minerals While Performing Any of the Kits?

    Q: First off, let me say, I am soooo happy to have caught the DHERBS advertising while listening to WVON radio in Chicago, IL. This is a very professional, informed and wholistic website. Kudos to the DHERBS team! Secondly, I currently don't take a vitamin/mineral supplemant, but was leaning to the Green Vibrance powder product (are you familiar with this brand), as I've talked to several health food reps, and they spoke of it's popularity within the health industry, the need for vitamins/minerals from a natural green source, and it's potency over pills, being that it's a powder and will digest better, versus pills which come from potentially harmful, scientific sources and, since they're in pill form, aren't absorbed by the body 100%. I was hoping to get a DHERB rep's opinion on GREEN VIBRANCE versus your mineral/vitamin supplemants. I hope you'd be unbiased, as you'd be commenting on a competitor product, as I truly am searching for the best product. I thank you in advance for your time and reply!


    I am delighted you enjoy the Dherbs website. Thank you for your words! Green Vibrance is a pretty good product and would supply you with much needed nutrition as mostly all green foods will. My only concern with the product (Green Vibrance) is the mixing of ingredients. I don't believe in mixing fruits with greens due to the mixture of acids and alkalines. A green food product should be TOTALLY "green foods" only and nothing else. Green Vibrance mixes citrus/acids i.e. grape seed extract, acerola berry juice powder with green foods in addition to bee pollen, royal jelly, wheat germ, etc. Also, as a vegan (strict vegetarian), I object to BEE POLLEN and ROYAL JELLY being used. These are from living entities (insects/animals). I also object to SOY as well which is in the product! Other than this, Green Vibrance is a great product that I would endorse as a source of organic nutrition and dietary fiber. Dherbs MULTI-VITAMINS AND MINERALS FORMULA and other products that are in pill form are in VEGAN capsules that dissolve 100%. At Dherbs.Com, we only use the BEST! Our product is 100% botanical! However, as far as absorption, NOTHING absorbs better than liquid and nothing is better as a source of minerals, vitamins, amino acids than FULVIC ACID which we sell as KHEMETIAN GOLD. This stuff is POWERFUL! 1000% pure nutrition! Do your research on Fulvic and Humic Acid and you'll see why I'm saying what I'm saying! So basically, Beloved, either way (Green Vibrance or VITAMIN B COMPLEX and/or KHEMETIAN GOLD) you'll be getting much needed nutrition! It's your choice! We value and respect free will and we don't believe in competition nor do we have to belittle, negate, or condemn another product or company to make a sale. Our primary concern is that people get what they need nutrition-wise and it doesn't have to come from us. Our goal is not to just sell products, but to properly educate people about human health and that's why we offer 175+ free articles in addition to 100+ products! Peace and Love --- and thank you for your interest in Dherbs.Com! p.s. - read our testimonials on our site and listen to (read about) the American people on what they are experiencing with Dherbs.Com products!

    Q: I've adopted many of the suggestions that you offer through your extremely informative articles, Sir, especially those regarding the consumption of meat and the key role that minerals play with respect to amino acids. I was wondering about your thoughts on the the "miracle mineral" chlorine dioxide ion?


    If the product is derived from plants it's good. This is the key! If a thing is plant-derived, it is okay to consume. Chlorine Dioxide is not one of the 102 minerals. Man made this so beware!

    Q: My question is what could be causing my puffy eyes? I've had them for probably 6 or 8 months now (maybe more). They sometimes will have a little darkness added to them. Sometimes I wake up and whatever side I've been laying on, that eye will be even more swollen than the other side, but they are usually the puffiest when I first wake up. Sometimes it looks like I've been bopped in the eye in my sleep. I've cut out a lot of the processed foods and stay away from sugars for the most part. I drink only water and juice once a day (5 carrots, 1 green apple, 1" ginger root, handful of parsley and 1/2 beet with greens. I get plenty of rest (although I've always had a hard time feeling rested) but not sure if the eyes have anything to do with rest. It seems more like it has to do with something else internally. What advice can you give and what supplements would you recommend. I'm currently taking your Multi-Vitamins and Minerals formula along with your VITAMIN B COMPLEX (which I love them both). Have been on them for about 1 1/2 weeks now I guess. I also take your CANDIDA BUSTER and the COLON FORMULA (I was having a problem with constipation for the past couple months, did some of your recommended enemas but for some reason my body still seems to get stopped up easily lately).

    You could take them all together and yes, they work together. I'd suggest that you first perform the FULL BODY DETOX Cleanse to cleanse the body.
