In part one we looked at just one of the many health problems caused by malnutrition. If the minerals we require are not in the soil, they cannot be in our food nor can they be in our bodies. Without those mineral nutrients in adequate quantities, our bodies cannot synthesize the vitamins, amino acids, and proteins needed for a strong immune system. How do we get those nutrient minerals into our bodies? Quite easily!
We can begin by choosing whole foods grown and raised organically, but let’s not stop at just organic. We must go beyond organic to food produced in a soil that is in optimum mineral balance. It is then our bodies will have luxury amounts of the stuff strong immune systems are made of. Through modern research coupled with thousands of years of experience from our ancestors, the answers are easier and closer than you think.
Raw milk, cream, sour cream, cheese
Eggs from pasture raised chickens
Bacon and pork from pasture raised pigs
Grass fed and finished beef
Organic fruits and vegetables raised in minerally balanced soil
Cholesterol (Yes, cholesterol!)
Salt (Indeed, salt too!)
In part three we’ll examine the foods above, the nutrients and compounds they contain, and why they are important to our health.
