The Importance of Mineral Balance

Traditional medicine often ignore or don’t recognize a patient’s nutritional deficiencies.
In most cases, drugs are prescribed.The dominating medical treatment protocol in the
United States today, is ND medicine – it starts with the name of a disease and ends with
the name of a drug.

Each body function is considered as having a single purpose or action, which of course,
is not the case. The body requires all the necessary nutrients and minerals to achieve
systemic balance and health. Our body consists of 90% calcium and phosphorus, of which
99% of the calcium and 80% of the phosphorus is taken by our skeleton system and teeth.
The following example shows how delicate and critical these amounts and balances are.
The normal ratio is a balance of four parts phosphorus to ten parts calcium in the blood.
(or blood serum). As long as this 4/10 ratio is maintained, a certain level of health
will be maintained. If this ratio is disturbed, for example, with three parts phosphorus
to ten parts calcium (3/10),there’s not enough phosphorus to hold the calcium in solution,
and the excess calcium starts to precipitate out of the  body fluids. If calcium
precipitate into your kidneys, kidney stones will form. If calcium precipitate onto your
teeth, tartar will form.When it happens in your joints, it is called arthritis.
If calcium deposits in your eyes, it forms cataracts. All these things are indications of
phosphorus deficiency.
