WHY MINERALS BEFORE VITAMINS?
Research has shown direct correlations between mineral deficiencies and illnesses.
diabetes or hypoglycaemia involve chromium, zinc and vanadium deficiencies; cancer and heart disease
involve selenium, copper and more.
Almost everyone knows that osteoporosis involves a calcium
deficiency, but fewer know about the need for magnesium and boron as well.
Baldness and premature grey
hair is also caused by missing minerals.
Proteins, enzymes and hormones are all formed from minerals.
Minerals are the cornerstone of good health, and of all prevention and recovery programmes.
"We know that vitamins are complex chemical substances which are indispensable to nutrition, and that each
of them is of importance for normal function of some special structure in the body.
Disorder and disease
result from any vitamin deficiency. It is not commonly realised, however, that vitamins control the body's
appropriation of minerals, and in the absence of minerals they have no function to perform. Lacking
vitamins, the system can make some use of minerals, but lacking minerals, vitamins are useless.
"The truth is that our foods vary enormously in value, and some of them aren't worth eating as food...Our
physical well-being is more directly dependent upon the minerals we take into our systems than upon
calories or vitamins or upon the precise proportions of starch, protein or carbohydrates we consume."
Marine Phytoplankton is the origin of all plankton. It has pigments that are unique to marine phytoplankton
which no other plant material has.
It is these pigments that scientists are looking at to find out why they
are so beneficial to health. Also, spirulina and chlorella grow in fresh water. Phytoplankton, on the other hand,
grows in the ocean and therefore contains an array of minerals and other nutritional elements not found in fresh
Pure Marine Phytoplankton
provides the highest nutritional species of marine phytoplankton.
An incredible breakthrough in human nutrition has astonished medical experts: "When you give your body everything it
needs to build healthy new cells, you then become well..." (Yes I know - most of us new that anyway)
Over-reliance on land-based food sources often leads to deficiencies in micronutrients and trace elements.
Our bodies need these elements to perform as nature intended. Left to its own devices, the human body has a marvelous
internal system called "homeostasis" which keeps all systems in balance.
Take away certain critical components and the
body experiences malfunction which cause suboptimal performance. Too many malfunctions cause disease.
Pure Marine Phytoplankton serves as a valuable source of nourishment for many sea animals. Of particular interest, phytoplankton
provides fish with the healthy omega-3 fatty acids, such as EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid).
Omega 3 fatty acids are essential to human health, and proven to reduce one's risk for cardiovascular disease, auto-immune disorders, and behavioral disorders.
Phytoplankton is also a rich source of antioxidant nutrients and pigments, including the carotenoids astaxanthin, canthaxanthin, and zeaxanthin.
Because carotenoids work together to prevent disease and provide healing in the body, it is believed that the only truly effective way to benefit from the carotenoid family is through whole foods because they represent the intricate balance that can only be found in nature.
Marine Phytoplankton has been shown to provide the same level of antioxidants as found with cruciferous vegetables.
Cruciferous vegetables are amazing health protectors, detoxifiers, and provide a nutrition powerhouse.
However, the astounding health benefits reported with marine phytoplankton may indicate that this whole food contains unique antioxidant pigments unavailable in other common foods.
Alternatively, it may be working at a cellular level to produce a stronger antioxidant effect within the body.

The Spark of of Life For Our Cellls
Vitamins control the body's ability to absorb and use minerals, and without minerals, vitamins
have no purpose,
The body cannot properly assimilate vitamins without minerals.
Minerals are needed for the body to manufacture many enzymes like those used to metabolize proteins and fats.
We need minerals to build tissues and bones, for effective nerve transmission and reaction, for muscle contraction, and blood clotting.
Minerals Are the Spark Which Gives Our Cells Life.

With all forms of healing:
When emotional or mental ‘blocks’ are released and the time is right to ‘let go’ of a cellular memory of a
condition or disease,
unless the physical body has the basic building blocks in place, its cells cannot regenerate fully and complete
the healing process.
The body needs minerals and vitamins - the basic building blocks.

Help For Children With ADD/ADHD
Children with ADD are often treated using conventional prescription medications.
While there is a place for prescription medication in certain cases of ADD, careful consideration should be taken regarding possible side effects and cautions.
There are also alternative treatment options available for children with attention deficit disorder.
Making simple changes in diet, sleep, exercise and routine can also help. Even trying more involved approaches like incorporating relaxation therapies such as guided imagery, meditation techniques, or yoga can be beneficial.
There are also many herbal and homeopathic remedies which can help maintain harmony, health and systemic balance in the brain and nervous system, without side effects or sedation.
These products are known for their supportive function in maintaining brain, nervous system, circulatory health, and well-being.
Often, we do not focus on psychological health as vigilantly as we do an individual’s physical health, regardless of gender or age. But like our physical wellbeing, we must also be attentive to our psychological, or mental, state to consider ourselves fully fit.
Many illness and conditions fall into this broad mental health spectrum such as learning disorders, concentration, tension, anxiety – test taking is a prime example – panic attacks, mood swings, depression, and even....
Do herbal and homeopathic remedies
work on pets?
According to pet expert and author CJ Puotinen, most holistic veterinarians and animal health care professions list annual vaccinations and commercial pet foods as the major contributory cause in the rising rates of chronic illness in pets today.
"In the wild, animals instinctively seek out healing herbs to help them when they are ill or undernourished. In fact, Asclepius, the ancient Greek god of medicine, respected dogs very highly for their ability to seek out and eat medicinal herbs in the wild.
This ability is shared by other animals, including cats.
We are coming to realize that nature often has the answers - but animals have always known this! Natural medicine can help your pet just as it can help you.
While there is always a place for conventional veterinary medicine, natural medicine can compliment conventional veterinary care and in many cases do just as well.
I have applied the same care and research that have gone into our Native Remedies range for adults and children to the development of pet-friendly, safe and effective natural remedies for animals.
As always, all remedies are formulated to the highest therapeutic standards and manufactured under strict pharmaceutical conditions for your peace of mind and the well being of your pets."
