It was Dr. Linus Pauling, an American chemist, biochemist and winner of two Nobel Prizes who said, "You can trace every sickness, every disease and every ailment to a mineral deficiency. This statement is not at all surprising if we looks at the work done by Dr. Schuessler on cell salts in the 1850's.
He found that the ability of the body to utilize nutritional material is impaired when there is a tissue salt deficiency. He also concluded that if the body became deficient in these essential minerals, the deficiency caused an abnormal or diseased condition. To Dr. Schuessler, a symptom was merely a distress signal, warning that a body constituent was missing and when restored, the body condition returns to normal.
Minerals are elements found in their organic form in all tissues and body fluid. Minerals are involved in all body processes such as hydration, syntheses of fatty acids and cholesterol, proper bone development, maintenance of nerves and brain, production of hormones and proper insulin regulation and liver function. Minerals support the immune system, promote healthy hair, skin and nails and help combat stress.
Mineral imbalances can lead to many many illnesses, diseases, and other health disorders (e.g. anemia, macular degeneration). Poor dietary habits contribute to mineral imbalances. Adding mineral supplements without knowledge of ratios and individual needs can compound these imbalances. Your Five Signals practice can teach you how to understand the specific minerals your body requires for balance.
Symptoms can vary considerably depending on the mineral involved and the severity of the deficiency. There are so many symptoms of mineral deficiencies that we can actually speak of them by category but it is too much to put all of that information here. I go deeper into them and ways to nourish and resolve them in the book.

Aside from organic trace minerals we require electrolytes. An electrolyte is a mineral salt which, when floating free in the body’s fluids, provides an electrical charge. Electrolytes control electrical conductivity, water balance (hydration), active transport of nutrients and the reliability of the taste buds. The proper ratios of these elements are critical for normal functioning. A poor sodium-potassium ratio, for example, can affect electrical conductivity to the point of chronic muscle tightness.
The body requires minerals in many different forms for different purposes and functions. Minerals are a major part of our biological foundation. When your minerals are correct you KNOW. You feel grounded, vital, balanced, positive, clean, clear, strong, healthy and Alive. Food cravings are then for simple clean foods that the body is asking for. The process of re-mineralizing can resolve mixed enteric signals. A craving for ice cream for example can resolve into a clear Signal/craving for healthy organic foods high in calcium. Emotional “ego” eating can then resolve through Nourishment. Proper mineralization can literally rewire your neurology and assist in resolving trauma and stimulant signals.
I do not believe in supplements - I believe in food. The minerals I recommend are food. They are organic, as opposed to inorganic. In the mineral kingdom, the term “organic” means they come from vegetation or animals, whereas, inorganic means they come from rocks. The process of an inorganic mineral becoming an organic mineral is through the life form absorbing the minerals and converting them. We are a species that requires eating vegetation or animal products to get the foundation of our minerals. We do not have the ability to eat inorganic rock minerals and use them for food, and we do not have the ability to eat them and convert them into organic minerals. Many of the problems we are now seeing in our current civilization may come from consuming inorganic minerals from uniformed supplementation in foods and supplements.
There are two bottles of minerals I recommend taking daily. They come in small easy travel size bottles that you can add to your waters, smoothies, and food! They assist in proper hydration, the absorption of food, the enzymatic process, pH balance and SO MUCH MORE! I highly recommend Fulvic and Humic minerals. Scientists are blown-away by what these molocules can do – resolving heavy metal and chemical poisoning, killing pathogens and feeding the body on a foundational level. I know of their Power first hand with my own body and the experience of hundreds of people I have recommended them to, who choose to work with them.
1) Nan02 — This is an Electrolyte complex to add to your water. This is a living compound of electrolyte, enzymes and amino acids. In my experience it is better than CELL FOOD (a popular mineral product) Purchase 1 or more bottles (I would get four bottles for 4 months) 5-10 drops in water throughout the day… Excellent for energy, clarity, intercellular communication and circulation! Can be very supportive for immunity. Read all about this on their site. These drops do not have iron in them. fulvic.org/nano2_.htm
2) Optimally Organic Minerals — ”Ionic Fulvic” (350X concentrate) This is an Ionic Electrolyte complex to add to your water. These are incredible Fulvic Ionic minerals for HYDRATION and assisting with absorbing food. I find these cleaner than the well known TJ Clarks minerals and they contain a usable form of Iron. They come in a glass bottle. I like the 350X concentrate best. These are very powerful minerals. I LOVE them. They are the best I have ever found. Because they are Ionic they give you immediate electric circulation, which can be excellent for cleansing. Depending on your system, you may use about a bottle a month (more or less is normal). With minerals like this, the idea can be for many to gradually steadily safely build your dose, taking more and more as needed. Buy bulk: optimallyorganic.com/Fulvic.htm
*The Fulvic/Humic Minerals are comparable to Shilajit (if you feel drawn to either you could get one or the other). In my healing process, I worked with both and find I interchange them. Ive used them since 2006. I rotate everything I do in 1-3 month cycles. It takes about 3 months for minerals to get into the foundation of the organism and rebuild the reserves. Then from there I rotate according to what my enteric brain is communicating (cravings, moods, taste and smell).
For long term healing, reservation and repair:
-Fulvic and Humic Acid - This is my main recommendation!!! These are foundation minerals which means they are the fuel for the building blocks of the body. The research done by scientists on these pre-historic minerals is astounding. This brand is the most potent and they are nanosize which means they are super small in size and can easily enter the cells walls. An angel told me about Humic -Fulvic acid 10 years ago. This is the best company I have found!!
(1 gallon can give you up to 4 months of supply, unless you choose to take more- taking more increases detox cleansing and inner healing) fulvic.org
Fulvic Acid* 1 gallon
Humic Acid* 1 gallon
*You take 1oz of Fulvic and 1oz of Humic, first thing in the morning with a glass of water- wait 20 min before you consume anything else. The directions are also on the bottles.
“Those who seek more dramatic results may wish to take 3 to 4 ounces per day. One ounce of each product in 6 ounces of water 3 or 4 times per day will be most effective. Finally, for best results, drink these products on an empty stomach and wait at least half an hour before ingesting any other food, drink, or supplement.” From Fulvic.org
-Shilajit Purified Powder (Mineral Pitch) 84 powder minerals in Humic (food source) form. Best buy and quality. Allen’s top recommendation- Read all about them and buy here: satveda.com
I take all minerals with Camu Camu or another form of food source vitamin C. We require the C to deliver the minerals correctly, this is pure physics. In private consultations and on the tele-series I offer specific recommendations for creating mineral elixirs to activate and turn on specific aspects for your mind-body system.
We require a usable form of sodium to be in balance. Sodium is a key electrolyte, like potassium and calcium. When the blood sodium level falls too low, a person may develop susceptibility to infection, low heat tolerance, muscle fatigue or tightness, headaches, and poor appetite or nausea.
Many things affect sodium need. The more a person sweats, the greater their need for replacement. Vinegar pulls sodium from the body, so eating foods which contain vinegar increases the sodium requirement. Fruits and vegetables break down in the body to produce a certain amount of vinegar, so the more of these in your diet, the more salt you will need. Sodium also carries mineral into the bone, where it remains as a key building block.
Purchasing the right salt is important. Most salt is toxic or not the right form of sodium. I do not recommend sea salt. It gives dark circles under the eyes and contributes to inflammation. If you have bags under your eyes it may be due to the wrong sodium.
-The Original Royal Himalayan Salt
There is only one source of salt I have found the body can use. (and I have tried hundreds) I do not recommend any other company- do not buy another “Himalayan” salt thinking they are all the same. This is the salt you can make as a Sol solution. (hydrated salt) It is recommended you do not cook with salt but add it to foods – warm or cold foods but not hot – as this changes the molecular structure of the salt. This salt hydrates the spinal fluid and can resolve strange food cravings. himalayancrystalsalt.com
MSM is a sulfur that cleanses and revitalizes the body on a cellular level- it is know for dissolving scar tissue! I LOVE IT. When you take it with pure real food source vitamin C (Camu Camu listed below) it stimulates the body to produces healthy collagen again.
You will want two forms of MSM, the eye/nose drops as well as the powder. You mix the powder with water and Camu Camu which is a food source of vitamin C.
There is only one reputable company I have found who’s MSM actually comes form plant source- not petroleum! it is Omica. They sell it is several forms. I prefer the crystal from (not capsules) here: omicaorganics.com
-Raw Organic Camu Camu Vitamin C* (powder form)
Most Camu Camu tastes very bitter. I like Sunfoods brand. It is fairly mild. However not all Camu Camu is the same. You are looking for a dark tan brown Camu powder. Light pink in cooked and or has filler added!
-Rich’s MSM Drops (different site) You take this in addition through eyes and nose. Yummmmm! So good for the brain and eyes and inner-soft tissue… SOOO GOOOD!!
* You take the MSM Powder and Camu Camu Powder in 4-16oz of water together. When you have the right combo it taste tart, clean and refresshing. Yummmmm!
Also I like to mix the MSM and Camu (dry) in a jar or bottle together to make it easier to take together… good for travel.
MSM-Camu Camu mixture is 1part Camu to 2part MSM… or to taste and preference depending on what you feel you require.
How much you take depends on what you feel in your system. Consider starting with a 1/3 tea spoon of Camu Camu and a half a tea spoon of MSM.
