Imbalances in the bloodstream are not caused by excessive or insufficient intakes of calcium, but rather the malfunction of one or more specific regulatory organs. This list includes: Thyroid – Secretion of calcitonin lowers the levels of calcium and phosphate in the blood and promotes the formation of bone by inhibiting osteoclasts (the cells that decrease

Iodine is a necessary component of thyroid health. Deficiency in this mineral is widespread today for a number of reasons. Our natural reserves are being used to shield the body from the deleterious effects of mercury, lead, bromides, cadmium and fluoride leaving the thyroid gland vulnerable to radioactive iodine 131. Making sure we have adequate amounts
Honeybees are Modern-day Canaries in the Coal Mines Throughout the history of mankind, mining for metal ores has played an important role in our development, as it is the processing of these metal ores into useful items that has allowed us to develop as a society called the human race. Funny, it is these same
I was reading an advertisement for a supplement the other day and the last thing they mentioned about the product was that it was patented. Suddenly, this struck me as quite odd. Why does any nutritional supplement need to be patented? There are 2 reasons why this may seem to be an advantageous thing to
Iodine Supplementation Due to the earthquake disaster in Japan and the associated damage to one or more nuclear reactors, awareness for the need for iodine as thyroid protection is widespread on all news media. Eidon manufactures a liquid iodine supplement perfectly suited for protection of not only the thyroid, but also the tissues of the
Healthy bones and teeth is the first association that comes to mind when we speak of calcium. This myth of high calcium intake for strong teeth and bones has been engraved into our minds since we were toddlers and constantly reminded, “drink your milk!” The fact is, when we were children, and for many years

Anti-Aging seems to be the hot topic of the day that is selling magazines and expensive remedies and enticing a desperate public of aging baby boomers with a promise of a return to youth.
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?
The other day I received an inquiry from a young woman named Sandra asking how much iodine she should be taking to make a small lump in her breast go away. In fact, the dis-ease of cancer or just tumor growth involves much more than just increasing ones intake of iodine. First and formost, one
Cleansing the inside of our bodies is actually more crucial to our health than cleansing the outside. We remain a germ phobic society with our anti-bacterial soap and travel size sanitizers to make sure we are squeaky clean.
Last week in Southern California and parts of Baja electrical power was terminated for up to 12 hours in certain areas. Power went off in our building with no warning. We immediately assumed it was a simple glitch or someone hitting a power grid in the area. This happened about 3:45pm, so it was close
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.
In the August 2, 1998, New York Times Magazine, reporter Sheryl Gay Stolberg described the world’s first case of vancomycin intermediate-resistant staphylococcus, or VISA, which appeared in New York in March 1998. “In recent years,” wrote Stolberg, “it has become fashionable in the media to warn of the exotic new infectious diseases percolating in other
I read articles frequently about innovations and health discoveries that can improve or strengthen your bones. Osteoporosis is a huge topic given the number of baby boomers in our population and it is an important one if we want to stay vital into old age. Our bones give strength and structure to us and allow the daily activity
Insomnia is nearly twice as common in women than in men, and women are more likely than men to report insomnia to their healthcare professional.

I am frequently asked to describe the difference between our Ionic minerals and other forms of minerals such as Trace, Colloidal, Angstrom, Fulvic, Humic, and Chelated. These descriptions represent everything from their charged state, source, size, or carrier. It is important to first understand the definition of mineral.

When people think of fluoride being prescribed for medicinal purposes, they generally think of fluoride supplementation to reduce tooth decay. Fluoride, however, has also been prescribed as a drug to reduce the activity of the thyroid gland.
There are so many uses for Silica that are practical over and above the stated uses for tissue repair and joint health. There was an article in one of the newsletters I get that divulged many uses for toothpaste that went beyond tooth brushing. As I started reading it occurred to me that many of
Eidon Bone Support is the only comprehensive bone support supplement available today that uses Silica as its base. This formula’s primary function is to maintain proper collagen levels in the bones and supporting tissues followed by providing what we feel are the most important supporting minerals for bone, cartilage, tendon and ligament health. Eidon Bone

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.
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.
Evidence of Harm Winner of the 2006 Investigative Reporters and Editors Award by David Kirby (A brief introduction) Does mercury in vaccines cause autism in children? A definitive answer has so far proven elusive.
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.
It has become quite obvious that many people are looking for more natural ways to support and maintain their immune systems through natural holistic means. Customer demand for our Zinc and Immune Support has exceeded all expectations. A topic that has not been addressed in all of the alarming headlines of the last few weeks is that of excessive stress. What with businesses closing down, people on lockdown or told to stay at home, schools closed and people now wondering how they are going to support themselves; stress levels are skyrocketing. What most people do not understand is that stress burns up minerals. The longer one is under stress, the more depleted they become to the point where they have great difficulty in even coping with it. Today, even under normal circumstances we are all under a constant low level of stress. With the current Coronavirus outbreak and the draconian government intervention, this stress level has increased exponentially. Consequently, in these and any other times of stress, which is basically all the time, we must be diligent in our efforts to maintain adequate mineral stores within our cells. Eidon offers you easy solutions to maintain this essential component of health. Electrolytes: Provides Magnesium, Potassium, Sodium, Chloride, Calcium and Chromium for optimal heart and muscle functioning. Multiple Minerals: Provides 12 of the most significant mineral elements in significant amounts, especially Silica. Immune Support: Provides you with 4 essential mineral elements required by the body to optimally deal with seasonal challenges. They include Zinc, Selenium, Sulfur and Silver. Lithium: Low dose Lithium has been found to stimulate the excretion of Mercury and strengthen nerves. Magnesium: This element has a multitude of applications, one being to help muscles relax. Stress burns off Magnesium and can therefore be the cause of tense muscles leading to more physical and emotional stress. Superbiome: Is the newest addition to our inventory of rebalancing compounds. In this case, we are looking at the GI tract. Superbiome works to restore your gut biome balance to an optimal state with a blend of 8 powerful mushrooms and 2 powerful probiotics. This helps restore the communication pathway between the gut and the brain, helping to ease the stress response. It is important to understand that pharmaceutical drugs may be able to mask the symptoms of stress, but do not address the root cause which is cellular depletion of essential minerals and gut dysbiosis.
Approximately 15 years ago I had a general physical, a part of which was a blood test that measured T3 and T4 thyroid hormones. The result showed that I was low in the production of these hormones. This was diagnosed as a failure of my thyroid to operate effectively. The traditional solution for this problem

Silica's importance in overall optimal bodily function has been recognized for quite some time. As early as 1878, Louis Pasteur predicted that silica would be found to be an important therapeutic substance for many diseases and would play a significant role in human health and consequently nutrition.

All essential minerals are provided by dietary seaweeds. No land plant even remotely approaches seaweeds as sources of metabolically-required minerals (See Bergner1997). Seaweeds can provide minerals often absent from freshwater and food crops grown on mineral-depleted soils. In addition to eating seaweeds regularly, those gardening for food can use copious amounts of seaweeds for mulch and

One drop of our Iodine Concentrate contains 75% of the US RDA. However, Iodine has been maligned in mainstream medicine over the last 100 years to the degree that the current suggested RDA will barely keep a Goiter at bay.

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.
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.
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.
We’ve come to know that the physical body is not solid matter but rather is composed of particles or even waves, depending upon how the physicist/observer assesses it.

How Liquid Minerals Compare to Pill or Capsule Form What are water-soluble liquid minerals? Water-soluble minerals are unique from other mineral supplements because they utilize a new proprietary scientific technology that transforms insoluble minerals (metals) into angstrom-sized water-soluble particles. An angstrom is 1/10,000th of a micron, which is a millionth of a meter. Previously, only
There is much confusion and contention around the issue of organic vs. inorganic minerals and the efficacious application of one over the other.

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.
Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are made by forcing genes from a different species into the genetic structure or DNA of a food crop or animal in order to introduce a new trait.
