I recently planted 16 Hibiscus bushes and was surprised that none of them were blooming. I see plenty of buds, but they just wither and die. When I got in touch with a Hibiscus nursery, I was immediately told that my soil lacked potassium, which is required in high amounts by Hibiscus.
This reminded me of the Truehope product, EMPower Plus – highly successful for treating manic depression, which is based on a vitamin and mineral formula for pigs that get irritable and moody!
Then, early this morning I was out for my walk and saw the fertilizer truck spraying the golf course. In the past I’d checked the three large containers that the operator mixed together and knew they contained minerals. One was iron, another magnesium and the third, a mixture of potassium, nitrogen and phosphorous.
Now tell me, when you went to your doctor and listed all your magnesium deficiency signs and symptoms (like anxiety, depression, muscle spasms, migraines, exhaustion, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, high glucose) were you told to take magnesium? Not likely. You were probably offered an anti-anxiety drug, an antidepressant, an antihypertensive, a cholesterol drug or a diabetic drug instead.
My point? Plant growers, pig farmers and golf course maintenance men know more about minerals than your doctor!
It’s a tough lesson to learn but doctors don’t know much about minerals. In medical school we were taught how to diagnose disease and treat diseases with drugs. We were not taught to identify vitamin and mineral deficiencies. For that knowledge you are on your own to educate yourself!
How are you getting your minerals? One great way is to eat more Raw Foods to get as many unprocessed live nutrients as possible. The Raw Food industry is growing by leaps and bounds. And they have great proponents like my foster daughter Shakaya Breeze. Shakaya has a new ebook out called Nude Food that has the potential to activate your love affair with real food. Beyond her books and detox program, you can enjoy the fabulous picture and artwork that Shakaya creates. You can find her paintings and cards on Fine Art America.
Raw Food is best eaten organic and can be further enhanced by proper fertilization with complete mineral formulas. You can see this process in action by going to Remineralize The Earth, an organization that has 700 farms using remineralizing protocols. Even if you don’t have a green thumb, with Remineralizing formulas, you too could become a great farmer or gardener! In fact, that’s what we all should be doing. Spring is coming to the mainland, it’s time to plant your Victory Garden!
