We believe there is not a compound made by nature or man that in fact will heal anything. It is only you that can heal you. Everything we consume is designed to provide the body with elemental compounds which will allow the body to function optimally. Every living organism has evolved to optimally function without feeling at dis-ease. In order for this to happen though, the cells must have access to all the essential compounds including minerals, fats, amino acids and carbohydrates. Without a full complement of all in adequate levels, feeling at dis-ease will be the outcome.
I know what you’re thinking, “What the heck is Silica?” And no, I’m not talking about those little square moisture absorbing packages you find in a new pair of sneakers. I’m talking about silica the mineral. Silica is so underrated and such an important supplement, and no one knows about it! Luckily if you continue reading, I am going to give you 7 reasons why I take Silica every day! I started supplementing with Eidon Ionic Minerals Liquid Silica two years ago, after I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. I was prescribed a medication that helped me reach remission (yay!) but had some not so pleasant side effects, specifically hair thinning and hair loss. As a woman, who has always had long blonde hair my entire life (well except for high school when I would ride my bike to CVS and buy pink hair dye), this was a horrible experience. My hair wouldn’t grow past my shoulders and eventually stopped growing all together. Every time I washed my hair, it would come out in clumps. It was so alarming and scary. I considered hair extensions but couldn’t afford them, they were almost as much as my mortgage, so that was out. I also looked into some hair regrowth serum and shampoos, but many of these products had mixed reviews and weird ingredients. I decided to take a natural approach. I tried biotin, but found it made me start having horrible breakouts. Check your multivitamins ladies, you might be breaking out because of that! Biotin did not help me grow my hair back and I didn’t really notice much of a difference while I was taking it. I did some more research and discovered the mineral silica. Eidon Ionic Minerals silica is essential in collagen formation and connective tissue strength. Just FYI, collagen is the tough fibrous material that holds our cells together and strengthens tissues. Basically, collagen is the major component of everything from our bones to our skin, and it stimulates hair growth! Since I have been taking Eidon Ionic Minerals, here is what I have noticed! 1. My hair grows super fast and I have hardly any breakage! I also noticed that my hair is thicker and stronger. Which is great because I am trying to grow out my hair for my wedding next June. 2. My nails are stronger and also grow very fast. I always had brittle nails as a kid and now they are hard and grow so quickly. 3. I had a huge reduction in joint and muscle pain. Since I started taking silica, I hardly have any pain! 4. My gut health improved. I was having horrible digestive issues and since I started taking Silica I noticed that my stomach doesn’t hurt anymore. 5. I noticed that the fine lines on my face started to reduce. Thanks collagen production! 6. My gums are healthier. I experienced inflammation on joints, gums, and other parts of the body. Since I started taking Silica, my gums are no longer inflamed. 7. My sleep improved. I used to have really bad insomnia, I would get too tired and then not be able to fall asleep. I recently started taking Silica before bed. I noticed that I quickly fell and stayed asleep! I wake up feeling refreshed and well rested, not groggy. I love Eidon Ionic Minerals Liquid Minerals! They have been around since 1996 and all their minerals are highly absorbable, so if you have gut issues, I HIGHLY recommend trying liquid minerals and supplements because you’re wasting your money on capsules your body can’t absorb. All of Eidon Ionic Minerals are completely natural WITHOUT additives or preservatives, and every mineral is pure and very high quality You might want to consider supplementing with Silica because we are definitely not getting enough out of our diets. Silica does not occur naturally in a lot of foods. In fact, silica is only found in natural oats, millet, barley, wheat, and potatoes. Unfortunately, most of these foods have been refined so much that the Silica has been removed. I currently take one tablespoon of Silica just before bed! Want to hear more of my health journey?

There are many things on the planet which defy logic and therefore possess what we humans like to call magical properties. Peruvian Pink Salt is one of these magical things. Imagine hiking high in the Andes mountains and discovering a spring bubbling out of the ground at 11,000 feet. Then imagine your surprise when you scoop up a handful of water to take a much needed drink only to discover that the water is salty. Yes, this is exactly what the Incas discovered many year ago during one of their treks through these magnificent mountains. The enterprising Incas understood the value of salt water and eventually began to harvest the salt from this spring. They would trade it for gold. The Spanish Conquistadors, in their conquest of this land were continuously looking for the mother lode of Gold when in fact they were missing out on what gave the gold its value - Salt. Empires were founded on a people’s access to salt. It was used as money, hence the word salary. More important, it was a universal preservative and the very first mineral supplement used by man. Man has traditionally obtained salt from the ocean by evaporating sea water into salt. Salt in this format is mineral complete and incredibly nutritious in its function of delivering the necessary elements we need to survive and thrive in our quest for optimal health. Peruvian Pink Salt provides the same elements in different levels than sea water with the added magic of the energy infused by planet earth to move this water up from sea level to 11,000 feet in the air. Such a feat would even be a challenge for man today. We believe this energy imparts special properties to this salt not found anywhere else on the planet. While this has not been scientifically studied, nor identified, I do believe it. Its effects are subtle and yet profound. Use Peruvian Pink for all of your salt requirements, which should include daily use on your food. Rick Wagner, C.N.,M.S.
Today I realized something that really made me mad. In addition to the closing of non-essential business, whatever those are, the closing of schools, and the order to stay home, we have been ordered to wear masks while in public. While it is all stupid as well as draconian, the underlying concept is as frightening as it is illogical.
Having listened to the news on the new almost pandemic called Coronavirus for the past month or so, I am still scratching my head. It is my humble opinion that it is much ado about a possibly new form of the common cold or flu, which most of the time puts one out of commission for a few days, up to a few weeks.
Modern medicine has come a long way in treating infections caused by pathogenic bacteria. The use of antibiotics has saved many people who have been exposed, either internally or externally, to opportunistic and sometimes deadly pathogens that are a part of the natural system of life on this planet. But, are these wonder drugs called antibiotics really the panacea we have been led to believe they are?
Did you know that there are at least 300 different human enzymes that rely on zinc in parts of their composition and function? Many people notice zinc on ingredient labels but have no clue just how important this substance is for their general health and wellbeing. Unfortunately, our bodies do not naturally produce zinc and very few of us actually get a sufficient amount of zinc through our normal diet. Our bodies also cannot store it. For this reason, it is important to consider taking a daily dose of an ionic liquid zinc supplement to ensure that our health is optimal at all times.
Collagen supplementation is all the rage today. Virtually all collagen supplements today are derived from animal by-products such as skin, bone, and cartilage. The most common tissue is cartilage and skin from cows. When consumed as a supplement, collagen is digested in the body and broken down into its primary constituents to be utilized within the body for numerous purposes. This animal collagen is comprised of complex sugars and the element Silica. What is important to understand is that the body does not take this collagen and automatically utilize it in its whole state to rebuild lost collagen. We must rebuild our own collagen matrix using the raw materials we obtain in our food, water, and supplements. The most important element necessary for rebuilding our own collagen is Silica. Silica catalyzes the Glycosaminoglycan enzyme in our tissues-which then creates collagen. So, when you consume an animal derived collagen complex, your body digests and then uses the Silica and complex sugars to make its own collagen matrix. The question is what did the cow use to make its own collagen? Cows eat grass. Grass contains complex sugars and essential minerals-including a generous amount of Silica. An excellent way to get what the cow ate is via greens, including the essential grasses. The best way to know you are getting adequate Silica is through supplementation of pure Silica as is found in our Silica supplement and other blends such as our Joint Support, Bone Support and Multiple Mineral. These products deliver the raw materials for our body to make its own collagen, as is how it should occur in nature. So the question boils down to what is the best approach. My preference is Eidon Silica, as no digestion is required and you are getting the element most responsible for human collagen production in a very bioavailable format.
My first experience with Zinc was in the 1990’s when after a week of being sick with the flu, I woke up feeling OK, but I had completely lost my sense of taste and smell. To describe the sensation, everything tasted or smelled BROWN. I know that is weird, but it was how I reacted. A good friend and surfing buddy suggested I might have a brain tumor, which I quickly discounted. That being said, I had no clue as to the cause. One day I was talking to my mom about it asking her if she had ever experienced such a thing. Her answer was no, but within a few weeks, I got an article from her that she had cut out of a Parade magazine that came with the Sunday edition of the Los Angeles Times.
Today, there is a lot of information being disseminated regarding the poor quality of our water supplies around the country and what we need to do to make sure we are getting good clean water in our daily diet. One thing for sure, there are many things in our water that are detrimental or at least not healthful. Two that are routinely added to our water supply today are chlorine and fluoride. While the chlorine is important for keeping microbial growth down to acceptable levels the amount we end up ingesting can create unacceptable body tissue chloride levels. The fluoride is, in my estimation, completely unnecessary and should be removed completely.
