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.

Why is taking Ionic Liquid Zinc Important?

Why is taking Ionic Liquid Zinc Important?

July 12, 2019

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:  Do You Need it From Animals?

Collagen: Do You Need it From Animals?

July 11, 2019

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.


Some of the Wonders of Zinc

Some of the Wonders of Zinc

June 20, 2019

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.


Drinking Water Alert

Drinking Water Alert

June 06, 2019

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.

Hair Mineral Analysis and Mineral Balance

Your hair can reveal a great deal more than just your preferred style. Many people don’t realize quite how absorbent their hair is and as well as taking on water when wet, our hair also absorbs chemicals and toxins that we are exposed to. For example, hair can be used to identify drug use or alcohol consumption. However, your hair can also reveal important information about your health. This includes some genetic disorders and whether you have or are at risk of developing health problems. These can be determined using a test known as a hair mineral analysis.

Yesterday, while at the bank, I asked the teller how she was feeling as she was obviously under the weather. The conversation quickly led to a discussion of other issues and she said she had recently been diagnosed with osteopenia and very low vitamin D levels. She was quite proud to tell me that sheRead More

Observations on Conventional Medicine

The other evening I decided to take a long deserved walk after dinner. I took one of my favorite routes for one exception. At one point, instead of my normal route, I went the opposite direction around a specific block I have walked for years. Granted, it was at night and there were Christmas lightsRead More
