Trace minerals are known as solid inorganic substances the body needs small amounts of to thrive, but don't let it be mistaken – they are critical to your overall wellbeing. Last week, Dr. Darrin Starkey introduced us to the importance of trace minerals in our monthly webinar "Why Do You Need Ionic Trace Minerals?" He touched on mineral imbalances and stressed how essential trace minerals are for optimal health.
Furthermore, Starkey discussed why mineral deficiencies may be more common today, and how individuals can rejuvenate their bodies and fuel them back to health.
"Nowadays, we're eating cooked foods and drinking little water," he said. "And when we stop to think about how our bodies are designed, water should be our No. 1 supplement. And yet today, because of all of the beverages available, I would say that dehydration and mineral deficiency is the breeding ground for inflammation."
Where are the minerals found?
As followers of the Hallelujah Diet, we believe that God created the earth for us with the intention that it would provide all of the natural sustenance we need to live long, healthy and fulfilling lives. Starkey touched on this point, stressing that trace minerals are everywhere.
"Nature always provides what our needs should be if we look in the proper places," he said. "If we really stop to think about it, we are nothing more than minerals. Our bodies are nothing more than hydration and minerals."
Essentially, trace minerals are all around us. They're in the water – the Great Salt Lake of western North America, especially, where the minerals are highly concentrated – and they're in our soils. As long as we're eating organic produce grown in mineral-rich soil, we'll get an abundance of those necessary trace minerals.
"If these minerals are not found in our soil, then they're not in our food. If we start thinking about soil building as a part of our human building, we wouldn't have to be having this conversation."
The importance of trace minerals
You see, the body is an intricate circuit of electrical impulses that rely on ionic minerals to keep the body working properly. Without these electrical impulses, your muscles can't function. Your heart and brain stop working, because the cells are unable to absorb the nutrients.
"Without electrical impulses, your muscles can't function."
"Minerals are the key part of reestablishing our health," said Starkey. "Without those minerals, our bodies do not function."
That's why it's so important to stop eating processed foods and drinking sugary beverages and start fueling your body with whole foods and organic produce. We recommend visiting your local trusted farmer's market for foods to ensure they've been grown in mineral-rich soil.
Ideally, you should be getting these minerals from following a raw, plant-based diet. Unfortunately, that's not always enough, because some soil is depleted of its minerals. To ensure you're getting all of the trace minerals you need, we recommend Hallelujah Diet Trace Mineral Concentrate. Made with a proprietary harvesting process, this natural product contains over 72 naturally occurring ionic trace minerals from the Great Salt Lake.
