Did you know that there is an energetic connection between your bioterrain’s acid/alkaline balance and the amount of structure you have in your life? Yes it’s true!
When your life is out of balance, and you perceive yourself to be lacking any sort of structure in your life, what happens energetically is that your body’s acid/alkaline balance goes out of whack, and then you tend to begin procrastinating, become more acidic, develop digestive issues, excess candida, hormone imbalance, and lose the ability to assimilate minerals properly.
Likewise, if you have too much structure in your life, without allowing for adequate time for yourself to just be, your body’s acid/alkaline balance again goes awry, becoming overly acidic, generally due to stress, and you end up with too much biounavailable calcium in your blood vessels, weakened bones, cavities, and organ malfunction, as your body will leech calcium from your organs, bones, and teeth in an effort to alkalize your bioterrain.
Taking ionic minerals, particularly with a good balance of calcium and magnesium is only the beginning of correcting the acid/alkaline balance in your body. It’s a good beginning, to be sure, but by scheduling your time properly, you will begin to assimilate your minerals more readily, on the energetic level.
On the energetic and emotional level, balancing your time with structure and free time for yourself begins to balance the body. If you are too structured, then you will do well to add some magnesium to help you become more flexible, and to allow the calcium in your body to be able to become reabsorbed properly. It’s also important for you to get outside in the sunshine for some Vitamin D, or take supplemental Vitamin D. Schedule some free time in for yourself to do whatever you want, without the pressures of life taking that away from you. Whether it’s a few minutes to meditate, exercise – go outside and play! – or take a relaxing bath, or get out in the sun, whatever it is, put it into your daily schedule, and stick to that. Also, allow yourself one day a week to do whatever you want, whenever you want. You’ll find yourself becoming less rigid and more flexible, in both mind and body, and watching your acid/alkaline balance corrected with minimal effort.
On the other hand, if you lack structure in your life, make it a point to schedule some daily time in for whatever it is you are wanting to accomplish. Eat at the same time each day. Go to sleep and wake up at the same time each day. Schedule in your meditation, as well as your physical exercise, and stick to it. Schedule in some work on a project, or chores. Do this until it becomes your habit. Take a little extra calcium to help you to achieve some structure in your life. This will also assist you in attaining that ever elusive self-discipline we all require to accomplish our goals in life.
When it comes to minerals, I highly recommend taking the fulvic based ionic minerals that are completely bioavailable and in organic form. One of the best (and least expensive!) mineral complexes I’ve found and personally use is Fulvic Mineral Complex from Vital Earth. Here’s the product information on Vital Earth’s Fulvic Mineral Complex, copied from their website:
All natural Fulvic Mineral Complex comes from an organic humic, plant based source. Its power lies in the reactions it enables within the body. Fulvic spreads through the system correcting imbalances, restoring proper function of vital processes, re-charging electrical potential of cells, boosting the immune system and metabolism…and just generally making everything work better.
Minerals provide the catalyst for absorption and utilization of nutrients. With its high fulvic concentration, this product has the potential to energize cells, detoxify heavy metals, increase the absorption of oxygen, change the metabolism of carbohydrates, and escort free-radicals from the body.
Why Fulvic Mineral Complex is “100% Fulvic in Solution”
Fulvic is a natural component within Humic minerals; Humic substances contain approximately 3% to 7% Fulvic. To get fulvic, it must be extracted from a natural humic source. Using a gentle proprietary extraction process, we have isolated the Fulvic from our organic Humic source material and this is what we bottle. 100% Fulvic, in liquid solution. We never add any harmful chemicals, or use high heat or pressure extrusion- all of which destroy fulvic.
Vital Earth’s humic source
Vital Earth’s original humic source contains an impressive 7% fulvic potency, whereas many mineral products come from sources that are only 3% to 4% fulvic to start with. Our humic contains a higher percentage of fulvic.
Why Vital Earth’s extraction process makes our minerals different than other products
How Humic minerals are handled during the extraction process is crucial. Because of our gentle, meticulous process that utilizes nothing but cool, purified water, Vital Earth’s Humic/Fulvic has a highly beneficial alkaline pH. Our minerals are NOT acidic like so many others on the market. We do not use any chemicals, high heat, or pressure extrusion. Our Humic/Fulvic is as natural as you can get.
Some manufacturers use harsh, toxic chemicals to rush the process, to turn out more product in less time… but this unfortunately destroys the precious Humic and Fulvic, the very ingredients they should be seeking to extract. These products many times tout a high mineral concentration, which is misleading to consumers. This type of sub-standard extraction produces a mineral product with acidity levels reaching as low as 2.0 pH.
Minerals in exactly the right form – plant based; from a fresh water source
Because the minerals in fulvic come from plants, they are immediately recognized by the body, triggering proper metabolic responses that allow them to be utilized exactly where they’re needed for energy, healing, proper organ and hormone function, and more. Fulvic minerals never build up in the tissue like metallic or clay based minerals can. “Organic, plant based” means there are no metallic or clay based minerals in our product.
And Vital Earth’s fulvic is from a fresh water source, Fresh water fulvic deposits have the lowest molecular weight, and are much more bio-available. The fulvic nutrients are easily absorbed by cells because of their small size, as opposed to salt water minerals, which have minimal bio-availability.
Fulvic Mineral Complex is NOT a Colloidal
Colloidals are solid particles that are simply being held in suspension in a liquid; they are too large to be easily used by cells and offer little health benefit. The ionic particles of fulvic are “dissolved”, and are so small they are not measurable in liquid form, which means they are able to pass right through cell membranes into the cells where they’re needed. Ionic minerals offer incredible benefits, but the benefits of colloidal minerals are marginal at best. There are no colloidal minerals in Fulvic Mineral Complex.
Fulvic: A natural, organic electrolyte
Fulvic is nature’s way of re-balancing and energizing the body. Fulvic bonds to and strengthens all biological properties it comes in contact with. Fulvic can change, alter, or combine with both organic and inorganic matter to correct and enhance the biological performance of cells. What this means is that fulvic electrolytes are literally capable of restoring life to damaged cells. Progressive stress, illness, infections, bad diet, and loss of sleep all contribute to diminished cell energy. Left uncorrected cells eventually mutate or die causing gradual failure of organs, lowered immune function, loss of energy, and more.
Experiments have shown ruptured and disintegrated cells that naturally reconstructed and were brought back to life when fulvic electrolytes were reintroduced. This means fulvic has the potential to rejuvenate not only cells, but organs, and all the systems of the body.
Fulvic: The nutrition booster
When fulvic is present in the body, it dissolves nutrients (from both food and dietary supplements) into the simplest ionic form, ready to be utilized by the body. Fulvic essentially prepares nutrients to inter-react with each other and extends the time those same nutrients are available to the cells. Since fulvic easily passes through cell membranes, it transports the nutrients it has dissolved into its fulvic structure, right into the cells.
Although we don’t advertise it as a weight loss product, a great side benefit is that many people report losing excess weight after starting to take Fulvic. Body weight balances naturally because fulvic helps correct chemical and hormonal fluctuations, assists the proper metabolism of food, and diminishes mineral deficiency cravings. When these changes occur, blood sugar levels are balanced, and food is used for energy instead of stored as fat. Hunger is decreased along with cravings for high calorie starches and sweets.
Can you get too many minerals?
Many people wonder if they will be taking “too many minerals” if they are consuming other products that also contain minerals…such as a calcium supplement. The answer to this question is, no. The reason is fulvic minerals are in an organic form, not metallic or clay, and therefore do not remain in the tissues – they are fully utilized by the body. When you take minerals that come from plants there is never any danger of toxic buildup. Plants have converted the mineral into a form that is safe and fully usable by the body.

They also have a wonderful Calcium-Magnesium supplement that is perfectly balanced and bioavailable, which helps to keep the body’s acid/alkaline balance in check.
Additionally, I highly recommend Dr. Norm Shealy’s magnesium lotion for anyone who requires extra magnesium or who has any type of intestinal discomfort due to magnesium sensitivity.
As always, check with your healthcare professional when in doubt about taking nutritional supplements.
Your body’s acid/alkaline balance is very important, not only in the way you feel physically, but also in the way that you live your entire life and in how you feel both emotionally and mentally as well. There is no doubt that mind and body are intertwined and connected, and what causes negativity in thoughts and feelings extends physically to the body, and vice versa, pain and inflammation in the body makes way for unhappy thoughts – not to mention the micro-organisms like candida, fungus, viruses, parasites and unfriendly bacteria – all of which have their own “thought programs” that they transmit to their hosts: the human body. These micro-organisms can’t survive in an alkaline and oxygenated bioterrain – and they are indeed masters of survival. By keeping your body’s acid/alkaline balance correct in the first place, you can keep both your mind and body impervious to other negative influences.
