The Essential Health Benefits of Sea Water

The case for regular drinking of small amounts of sea water.

The Missing Link in Nutritional and Most Other Therapeutic  Modalities

When I mention to people about drinking sea water a frequent response  goes    something like this ‘I thought that drinking sea water drives you  mad’, to which    I reply ‘I was mad before I started drinking it, but now I’m sane!’.

As any homoeopath should know, and also some of the ‘lay public’, a  small amount    of a substance taken can have an opposite effect to a large amount.  This principle    is taken a step further in the principles and practice of homoeopathy;  e.g.    the effects of a poison, such as a snake bite may be ameliorated by a  higher    dilution of the same. An excess, or a problem dealing with common  table salt,    sodium chloride, will produce a whole range of symptoms, these often  include    a tendency to fly off the handle at the least provocation, mental and  physical    tension, and fluid retention, regular sleepiness in the day, often  with depression    and insomnia. (These symptoms can also be due to other mineral  imbalances)

It should be noted that there are many more symptoms than the  foregoing related    to sodium chloride, and that different individuals demonstrate some  symptoms    and not others. It takes someone who is deeply familiar with the  symptom picture    of this salt to even make an educated guess that it is involved in the  patient’s    health/disease picture.

Taking salt in dilute form, such as a sprinkle (50 milligrams is  adequate) in    a glass of water, can rapidly begin to resolve the imbalance. Adding  the same    amount onto food will not. There are at least two reasons for this.  The first    is that as a substance is dissolved in water the molecules are better  able to    express their charge: e.g. sodium chloride is made up of a positively  charged    sodium and a negatively charged chlorine The greater the dilution the  further    apart are the molecules (once dissolved all the molecules remain the  same distance    apart, by a mutually repulsive charge). This changes the way the  charge is expressed,    and explains why a more dilute solution can have a greater effect on  the body’s    electrical system ( the electrical and magnetic ‘system’ that coexists  with    our body chemistry is, I believe, an integral core of what has been  referred    to as the ‘vital body’, or the ‘life-force’ as studied by homoeopathy  and all    long-standing systems of healing). This also explains somewhat how  homoeopathic    potency works. The higher the dilution, the higher the potency and the  longer    lasting effect of each dose. It should be noted however that the  higher the    dilution the more important it becomes to ‘sucuss’ i.e. shake  vigorously (the    practice being to strike the diluting bottle firmly on a medium firm  object    such as a thick book, to produce a jarring effect on the solution).  This process    strengthens the electrical information pattern of the substance, and  therefore    makes it have a stronger effect on the person. (It has been postulated  that    rapid accelerations and deceleration’s of the water molecules along  with the    ions of the dissolved substance, within the earth’s magnetic field  generates    a stronger stored charge or field within the water molecules, thereby  reinforcing    the energetic information pattern)

In the nineteenth century William Boericke M.D., highly regarded  homoeopath    and writer, in his book ‘The Twelve Tissue Remedies of Schussler’ made  some    interesting comments about common salt or ‘Natrum Muriaticum’, as it  is referred    to, in homeopathic potency. He commented how taking ounces of salt  daily fails    to provide any of the essential benefits of salt in the body (toxic at  these    amounts) but that taking very small amounts in ‘potency’ can relieve  some of    the symptoms of this excess consumption, but it would have been better  not to    have taken the excess in the first place. All that was required was to  take    the minute, homeopathic dose. He also observes that ‘the importance of  this    cell salt cannot be too highly estimated, for it is one of the chief ‘antidotes’, seeing that whenever it, or any of the other  cell-salts    are thrown out of the blood, etc., owing to some irritating drug or  other cause,    the watery fluids of the body are called into play, and as Nat. Mur.  is the    regulator of the distribution of such fluids, a dose thereof will set  matters    right so far as the fluidic disturbance is concerned’. The ‘other  cause’ he    does not expand on will form one of the main themes of this article.

I have observed many times over the last few years, in myself, and  others, that    therapy becomes blocked , and often does not even begin, due to an  imbalance    or inadequacy of salts in the correct form, sodium chloride being one  of a number    of essential salts or ionic minerals as they are now sometimes  referred to. The longer, or more broad acting, or potent is the therapy (or ‘health  regime’)    the more likely is this typical block to manifest itself. I myself,  and others    have observed it to occur with the following:- broad spectrum  nutritional programmes,    ‘Celloid Mineral’ therapy (tissue salt therapy, using larger doses,  yet still    relatively small doses, but excluding sodium chloride), herbal  therapy, (especially    if using potent broad acting herb’s or combinations of herb’s designed  to give    a balanced effect), various energy therapies such as ‘orgone beam’,  ‘chi lamp’    (Dr.Johanna Budwigs ‘biological electron’), crystal and gem therapies,  bipolar    magnetic and negative magnetic therapies, ‘superfoods’ such as pollen,  spirulina    and chlorella. In short any energy or nutritional/herbal substance  that carries    with it the potentiality of re-establishing a higher state of order  and functioning    within the human system is sooner or later blocked from completing its  noble    task by the original or engendered salts imbalance.

In practice this is the most common, most overlooked block to all  methods of    impro f all the required nutrients are delivered to the cells of the  body, health    will result (obviously provided there are no great ongoing stresses  such as    great overeating, drug use, extreme stressful circumstances, overwork,  lack    of exercise etc.) Supplying all the required nutrients has to be done  in a form    that is balanced, and in the form that nature has provided, as much as  possible.    To date, in my opinion, there is no synthesised nutritional product  that fulfils    this need. However, there are several naturally occurring  ‘super-foods’ as they    have been dubbed, chlorella and spirulina are examples of blue green  algae that    appear to have the potential to fulfil this role. Many people attest  to the    health benefits of these. Chlorella is well researched at the clinical  level    and taken by millions of people daily, world-wide*1. It contains so  many complex    nutritional factors, it has the potentiality to upgrade every cell,  organ, gland    and system of the body. Some people do well on it, it has literally  saved lives,    and repaired many, yet like its cousin spirulina I have seen the  majority of    people who take these products to begin to go ‘into healing’ for a few  days    or weeks and then to ‘lose it’. (Thereafter, an extended period of  use, e.g.    many months failing to have any noticeable benefit, e.g. poor sleep,  fatigue,    poor digestion continuing unabated.) In some cases the length of time  of therapy    is extended by reducing the dose to a few hundred milligrams daily,  but eventually    the block arrives. (These products are food and can be taken in much  higher    doses than generally recommended, e.g. 50 grams a day. or in the case  of my    healthy kitten 30 x 250 mg tablets daily and pleading for more!)

So, when such potent foods are taken, I believe, it is the sheer  richness, and    the complexity, of the nutritional ingredients that engenders every  cell in    the body into a state of better functioning. Blocked metabolic  pathways are    opened up, and the process of moving towards a general state of better  functioning    occurs. The most obvious way to ascertain if the process is moving in  the right    direction is the quality of sleep. Sleep should be deeper, of a more  healing    nature, and possibly longer, as long as the therapeutic process  continues. Overall    one should feel better emotionally and mentally at an early stage,  although    for intermittent periods, there may be some mental aberrations and  adjustments    due to the detoxification process, these will generally be  intermittent and    relatively brief. The reason for the foregoing is that in order for  the body    to reach a higher level of general and total health, the nervous  system must    begin to heal first. So, if generally on a day by day or at least, a  week by    week basis these (foregoing) conditions are not met, if quality of  sleep has    deteriorated, if you are more stressed, or more obsessive, or more  anxious,    then you are not undergoing a therapeutic process. You are not  benefiting from    your nutritional or herbal programme in an overall way, that will  progress your    general health, though some specific imbalances may be improved .

Almost invariably such reactions are put down to a side effect of the  therapy,    such as a detoxification process, not realising, least of all  understanding,    that there is a fundamental block in the physiological process.  Detoxification    should occur without stress in a way that is not generally  uncomfortable, and    usually involves a freer movement of fluids, such as a productive head  cold,    or loose catarrh, more frequent urination and or bowel movements, and  an increased    need and desire for water, an essential aid to the healing process.  Pains/neuragias    may occur briefly during the healing process but unremitting pain,  obstinate    inflammation, are generally signs that the healing process has been  blocked.

It has taken years of frustration with my own attempts to optimise my  health    and seeing the same blocks occurring with patients and friends alike,  (using    all the various therapeutic modalities mentioned earlier), that has  lead to    my understanding of the essential role of sea water. The first clue  came a few    years ago when I found that I prescribed Nat. Mur. or sodium chloride  homoeopathically    more frequently than any other remedy. I began to think it was my own  bias until    I read that this was the most frequently prescribed homoeopathic  remedy. A further    clue arrived when I spoke to a David Brownie of the Institute of  Geopathic Stress.    He had come across a form of energy therapy called ‘orgone beam’. This  device    supplied a basic type of energy that the body requires to function,  and the    device had many enthusiastic followers, with some impressive anecdotal  healings.    Being very interested in the field of ‘energy medicine’ as it is now  being called,    I purchased one of these devices. Trying it on myself I found that  this supposed    balanced energy produced a state I labelled as over stimulation or  trapped energy,    rendering sleep of a poor quality. Since I had only a brief exposure  to the    device, and had not overused it, I felt the implied claims of it being  a universal    healing device had fallen flat. I rang David a told him its effect on  me. He    said this was quite common and that he felt my brain frequency had  speeded up,    rendering healing, consequently, out of reach. He had found that many  patients,    ‘M.E.’ (sometimes refereed to as chronic fatigue syndrome) patients in  particular,    responded in the same manner. He had found that a combination of sea  salt and    iodine would rectify the situation. He advised the method of rubbing a  couple    of drops of iodine solution (This used to be known as Lugols’ Reagent)  anywhere    on the skin daily and taking a teaspoon of sea salt twice daily.  Having studied    mineral therapy and homoeopathy I did not feel right about the  consumption of    such a large amount of salt, if this had to be extended into a regular  use,    and I would not feel easy about recommending this to others since  there is good    evidence that the potassium to sodium balance must be kept in favour  of potassium,    especially as a possible preventive of high blood pressure, strokes  and cancer    to name a few. So, I dissolved about half a pea size of sea salt in a  glass    of water, and sipped a couple of these glasses a day over the next  three days,    along with the iodine application.

I became progressively more relaxed, less ‘hyper’ (a feeling of being  hyperactive    is usually related to a preponderance of the higher Beta brain  frequencies or    above) with better sleep each successive night. On day four I had my  second    ‘Orgone Beam’ session for about one hour. The distinct feeling of this  energy    was again experienced but this time it was well integrated with a good  sleep    and no feeling of mental over activity. According to David Brownie  this scenario    has been repeated many times , i.e. is quite reproducible. It is  interesting    to note that the addition of salts to water considerably reduces the  electrical    resistance. This effect is much more marked with iodine solution, just  one drop    to a glass of water considerably reducing the electrical resistance.  The body    is as much an electrical and magnetic creature as it is a chemical  one. ‘Natural    energies’ in the body referred to in the past as Chi or Prana etc. are  now widely    accepted to have an electrical and magnetic component. Direct current  and low    frequency pulsed direct currents are measurable in and on the surface  of the    body. It seems reasonable to assume that mineral salts in the body not  only    work in the chemical organisation but also are part and parcel of the  electrical    system and facilitate the conduction of electrons within the body  fluids. This    fact is implicitly recognised in the term ‘electrolytic minerals’.

It is of further interest to note that the mineral composition of  the extra    cellular fluid, which in a typical adult is about 26 pints, or over 3  gallons,    has a composition very similar to sea water. During world war two, due  to shortage    in blood plasma, the use of sea water as a substitute was authorised.  Looking    at the mineral composition of sea salt, a typical sample contained  over 99 %    (dry weight) of sodium chloride, with the next most abundant mineral  at a measly    0.6% (calcium sulphate). Sea water contains much higher proportions of  other    minerals and trace elements, magnesium at around 3.7%. Other minerals  found    in relatively large amounts are sulphur potassium, lithium, bromine.  Minerals    and the trace minerals (or trace elements as they are also referred  to, the    words minerals and elements being interchangeable) have many roles,  each capable    of performing multiple functions within the body. For example, lithium  deficiency    is linked to manic depression, and bromine acts as a nervine, i.e. a  natural    tranquilliser. It is not surprising then that along with the general  role of    facilitating electrical flow, administration of sea minerals, just  half a teaspoon    in a glass or water, has been found to rapidly calm the mind and for  example,    render overactive and attention deficit youngsters sufficiently  reordered, to    be able to learn and concentrate when all previous educational  intervention    had failed. 2

Sea water has a history of therapeutic use. Its application to the  body, warmed    and usually combined with massage, is referred to as Thalassotherapy,  originating    from the Greek word thalassa. Both the Greeks and the Romans  recognised the    therapeutic effects of sea water. The immediate general effects of  warm sea    water application (it can penetrate the skin more easily when warm,  and enter    into the blood) is relaxing, regenerative and stimulating.

The American Indians who resided in the Utah area near the Great Salt  Lake regularly    drank small quantities of the inland sea water. They discovered that  this practice    enhanced the effect of their herbal remedies. It was based on this  folk use    that Hartly Anderson set up a company to extract the exceptionally  pure and    concentrated form of sea water and to market it for health purposes.  That was    over 30 years ago, and many people testify to the therapeutic  properties of    these mineral rich waters and the beneficial effects when combined  with herb’s    and other nutrients. The famed Poznan School of medicine in Poland  found after    years of research that herb’s acted synergistically with minerals and  vitamins,    providing a superior therapeutic modality, than when minerals are not  included

Visual indication that something very important is happening, and  rapidly, when    a small amount of sea water is drunk, has been revealed by the latest  high power    microscope. The microscope is a Nikon Opithat with a Naessens  condenser, working    at 15,000 x’s magnification. The results were filmed on video camera. A  drop    of blood from a test subject was thus filmed. It showed clumping and  stacking    of the red blood corpuscles, rendering the blood cells poor  distributors and    collectors of oxygen. It is a condition that occurs more in older  people, i.e.,    part of a typical health deterioration process, and also more in sick  and unhealthy    individuals. The individual in question then drank a small quantity of  the ‘inland    sea’ water. One hour later a fresh drop of blood was examined exactly  the same    way as the first one. Each blood cell was now floating independently,  so that    they where no longer stacked together.3

It was later discovered, using this technique, that a diet with an  abundance    of fresh fruits, vegetables and juices could eliminate the clumping of  the red    blood cells. The benefit could usually be seen within several weeks  along with    an increase in feeling of vitality and well-being. I personally was  impressed    to note an improvement in vitality within a couple of hours of my  first consumption    of the sea minerals or ‘ionic- minerals’ as they are sometimes  referred to.    However, it would be another three years before I more fully  understood how    to use sea water and the potential scope for its use as a health  supplement. The role of sea water in the conduction of the body’s  energies/electrons and    chi has been discussed but of equal importance is to understand the  role of    sea water from a nutritional perspective. This generally falls outside  the scope    of the ‘mainstream’ nutritional doctrines, is ahead of it, as current  nutritional    knowledge is yet to catch up with the complexity of nature. I hope the  following    discussion will throw some light on these matters. I remember a period of a few years when I tried one mineral and or  vitamin supplement    after another. I had a few books on the subject, and as my vitality  and general    health was below par, I carefully studied these books and took note of  my symptoms.    But the result was always the same. Each mineral or vitamin I  introduced led    me from one particular imbalance to another. Since that time about ten  years    ago I have met several individuals who have travelled the same path.  Later I    was to learn about a Dr. Plasket4

who had done some pioneering work on nutrition. He had found the same  thing,    that you cannot in practice, based on symptoms, apply nutritional  therapy successfully    by supplying individual nutrients. He found they had to be given in a  group,    beginning with calcium and magnesium, the ratio of these two being  crucial,    and a few associated vitamins. Only after a period of time should the  trace    minerals of zinc, selenium, iron, chromium and manganese be introduced  to the    average patient. This system has had some moderate success, but I  found I obtained    better results with the ‘Biochemic Tissue Salts’. This was probably  the first    nutritional therapy developed which was based around minerals. It was  developed    by a Dr. Schussler in Victorian times; today much of his work has been  proved    to be correct. It is based on analysis of the ash remains of the body  after    cremation. All that remains are the minerals. An analysis of these  minerals    led to the identification of the 12 tissue salts. This analysis showed  that    the bulk of the minerals in the body are in the form of salts, that is  they    occur in pairs e.g., potassium occurs in 3 main forms i.e. with  sulphur and    oxygen as the sulphate, with chlorine as the chloride and with  phosphorus and    oxygen as the phosphate. Potassium takes up a positive charge and is  referred    to as the cation and the other half of the salt such as the phosphate  has a    negative charge, referred to as the anion. It took Dr. Schussler many years to classify the ‘symptom pictures’ of  each    tissue salt, and much of his work has been proved this century by the  work of    an Australian, Dr. Blackmore, who improved on the system by supplying  somewhat    higher doses, since the tissue salts of Schussler were homeopathic  potency,    and delivered exceptionally small amounts, working probably more from  the ‘information’    of potency than actually delivering meaningful quantities. This method  of giving    actual ‘pharmacological’ doses of the tissue salts is referred to as  ‘Celloid    Mineral Therapy’5. This has been in clinical use for about 50 years ,  and has    proved a consistent therapy, often giving results where other  therapies have    failed. It has been well established both scientifically and in  clinical practice    that the cation/anion pair are the physiologically preferred form of  minerals.    I can personally testify to this, both in my own, and my patients’  reactions.    By administering minerals that are in the incorrect form, i.e.  magnesium without    its phosphate partner, imbalances will be created. It has also been  found that    in any ‘celloid ‘ mineral prescription taken for any reasonable length     of time magnesium and sodium (both as the phosphate) must be  prescribed, otherwise    imbalances will occur. The draw-back with the celloid mineral therapy is that it is based  around a    practitioner diagnosing the patient’s need, and this will change as  therapy    proceeds. It has been found that one cannot just give all the  celloids, as found    in the body, and expect to get results The maximum number that have  been found    to be effective are 5, or in some cases, less. So this is not a self  help method    we can use to optimise our health. So, is nature so mean it will not supply us with a simple method of  raising    up our level of health towards our genetic potential, towards the 5  groups of    peoples who live to typically 110-140 years? (i.e. those living  adjacent to    mineral rich mountain streams such as the Hunzas, Georgians and  Villacambes    of Ecuador) One thing ‘mainstream’ nutritional research has established in the  last 20 or    so years is that there are an increasing number of trace elements that  ‘need’    has been established for. It has also been established that the  minerals and    trace minerals work in close relationship to each other, for example,  just giving    one, such as Zinc will create imbalances related to manganese and  copper, since    these need to be supplied and work together. The problem with all this  research    has been the seperative analytical approach, which can only result in  partial    solutions, and often creating new imbalances It is obvious the tissue  salt or    latterly the ‘celloid’ approach lacks the trace minerals, and the  mainstream    nutritional products available, ‘over the counter’ lack the correct  form (anion/cation    pair, and therefore exclude the sulphate, phosphate, chloride) Looking  at food    in its natural state, especially plant juices; are these not  sufficient for    our needs? The short answer is no. A plant can only extract what  minerals are    available in the soil. Virtually all agricultural soils are mineral  deficient.    One thing is agreed amongst nutritional researchers: mineral  deficiency is the    most fundamental cause of all chronic disease, including the  degeneration that    occurs with ageing. Dr.Linus Pauling, twice Nobel prize winner, said:  ‘You clue    to this was revealed with animal growth and development studies. A  trace mineral    complex has been produced by growing a micro-organism on coal. This  method enabled    all the minerals from the earth’s crust, over 80, showing up on  analysis, to    be integrated into a ‘food state’ supplement. Most of these are in  minute amounts,    micrograms and even picograms (a picogram is one thousand millionth of  a gram).    In terms of the current nutritional doctrines there was insufficient  quantity    of any one mineral in this supplement to render benefit as a  nutritional supplement.    Yet young rats, fed on a poor quality diet lacking in adequate amounts  of the    major minerals, when also given the trace mineral product grew and  developed    very well, even slightly better than the rats fed a ‘high quality  diet’. These    studies were later borne out on mink, horses and cattle.

So, the conclusion that can be drawn is that a broad spectrum of over  80 minerals    present in the earth’s crust are required for the assimilation and  utilisation    of the major minerals, such as calcium, magnesium, potassium etc.  These are    the broad spectrum of minerals and trace elements that are ground into  fine    powder by mountain glaciers before mixing in the mountain streams that  supply    the soils of the healthiest, longest lived people on earth.

There are three types of broad spectrum trace mineral supplements  which could    potentially fulfil this role. The first is colloidal. There has been  quite a    lot of aggressive marketing, of colloidal broad spectrum mineral  supplements    in the last year or so. They are fossilised remains of ancient  vegetation, but    unlike coal all the carbon has been removed by unusual set of  geological circumstances.    They are mainly composed of sulphur and aluminium, but as colloids;  apparently    the aluminium does not bind with the tissues and is not toxic. Since  the colloids    have a history of use, and have been found to be safe they have an  area of therapeutic    application. However, they do not appear to resolve the problem of  electrical    flow in the body. This is hardly surprising since it is the soluble  ‘ionic’    salts they serve this role. Also ionic minerals enter into the cell  chemistry;    they are as Dr. Schussler found in the last century, the main form  minerals    occur in the body. There is controversy concerning this subject, since  much    still is to be learnt. However, false information is being given out  by proponents    of the colloids, such as the fact they are organic, when in fact  organic minerals    are those that are bound to carbon, via the proteins (otherwise  referred to    as chelated) as found in food. The colloidal minerals have had all  carbon, all    protein removed by an unusual set of geological circumstances, and are  very    rare in this form in nature.

Foods do contain some colloidal minerals. Colloidal minerals are  composed of    single large molecules or groups of smaller molecules (very fine  particles)    in a solid, liquid or gaseous suspension. Colliods do not dissolve in  true solutions    and are not capable of passing through the cell wall as in dialysis.  They do    not take part in the main bioelectric processes of the body.6

The second form of broad spectrum minerals/trace elements is, as  mentioned,    the coal-derived variety. I spent about nine months taking these on an  almost    daily basis. They do seem to enhance the value of food, and a quite  different    effect depending on what food/juice they are taken with. They seem to  be ‘deep    acting’, in homeopathic terms, i.e. enter deeply in to the life force.  I found    that a course of a few months was enough, and did not provide long  term benefits,    did not normalise the bioelectric processes as does that most common  commodity,    sea water, the third of the broad spectrum mineral/trace element  sources.

The analytical method of identifying particular remedies for  particular disorders,    is in some ways, a naive and isolated way of looking at symptoms of  health disturbance.    As an example: in an infective crisis the natural ‘antibiotics’ such  as propolis    and grapefruit seed extract have their role, but any chronic health  problem,    is merely a manifestation of nutritional imbalance in its various  guises, and    this includes toxicity, poor immune function, parasitic infestation  and so on.    I firmly believe higher success can be obtained with the broad acting  measures    discussed in this article than using individual herb’s, homoeopathic  remedies,    or any other form of therapist based diagnosis. Get the whole right,  and all    the parts will respond; nature is not such an awkward fellow after  all.

Alternative or complementary therapy has suffered, in a way, like  conventional    medicine from specialisation. Different schools of thought, and  different healing    modalities, while having value in their own right, do not, as a rule,  provide    for the optimum basis in restoring the person’s own natural healing  ability.    This, I believe, can only occur when all the essential nutrients and  healing    energy (to be discussed in a later article,) are in place at the same  time.    In this situation any specific remedies that are given will stand the  best chance    of working. Prescribing specific remedies, no matter how natural, even  a mixing    of balanced herb’s with pulse diagnosis, is always hit and miss, and  increasingly    so as the population becomes ever more minerally deficient and  electomagnetically    stressed. Giving a specific natural remedy is like taking one shot at  goal.    Supplying a totality of all the required nutrients, as discussed in  this article,    can be likened to rebuilding the team. Success, eventually, is almost  guaranteed.

Prescribing drugs or other conventional medicines for a specific  symptom is    often merely a removal of a symptom. Symptoms of all kinds are part of  the process    of the body’s attempt to restore correct functioning; merely knocking  them out,    in the long term is an assault to the self regulatory mechanisms of  the body.    Dr. Hannahmen (the ‘founder’ of homoeopathy) stated that the  suppression of    a symptom with a drug resulted in two ‘diseases’; the original one,  still there,    residing below the surface, and the new one introduced by the drug.  Rather like    beating a disturbed child! In the last few weeks the press has  announced that    progress has been made in treating cancer, with far higher success  than the    previous suppressive methods, using the body’s own immune system. Dr.  Johanna    Brandit and many other distinguished researchers into natural healing methods have known this for many years. Nature has the  power    to heal anything, blood, tissue and bone. After all, the body is  completely    rebuilt every few years, at least when we are younger; it is merely a  failure    in some of this natural rebuilding process that results in  degenerative disease.    Our bodies have their own unique history. We are all born with genetic  weaknesses    and taints to a greater or lesser degree, and the health, habits and  diet of    the parents greatly effect the outcome. Added to this are acquired  assaults    to our health, such as immunisations, although offering some  protection to some    acute infectious diseases can, many health care professionals believe,  and as    many observant mothers know, have long term damaging effects. The rate  of ‘cot-death’    syndrome has dramatically reduced in Sweden since raising the age of  immunisation    by a few months

Added to these problems are processed foods, chemicals in the diet,  lack of    fresh fruits and vegetables, the suppression of the acute diseases of  childhood    with antibiotics. The natura paths of the past recognised the  importance of    allowing fever to proceed, since this clears away toxins, and builds  the immune    system.

The iris of the eye shows several kinds or marking and ‘stainings’  that display    the condition of the organs, glands and tissues. As we go through life  these    features build up in the iris, coincident with the gradual  degenerative processes    taking place. Weak organs and tissues tend to act as a focus for the  deposition    of metabolic waste products and environmental toxins etc. It is in  these areas    that infection can take hold or actual disease conditions. Since the  iris fibres    are an actual ‘map’ of the body, a skilled iridologist can determine  with a    fair precision where the focus of a health problem is, or is liable to  occur    in the future. Iris diagnosis has been found to be generally far more  reliable    than signs and symptoms diagnosis. Of particular interest to the  discussion    in hand, is that a concerted health programme can reverse some of the  iris markings.    Cloudy and stained areas can be cleared and dissolved. Black areas,  indicating    where actual tissue destruction has occurred, fill in with fine white  healing    lines.

In short, our health is not a random process waiting to be cruelly  attacked    by the next virus or disease surfacing for no reason. Our bodies have a  history,    it can be traced in the iris of the eye, and through regenerative  therapies    we can ‘turn the clock back’ as our tissues and organs are gradually  repaired    and revitalised. Iridologists have noted that as this century has  progressed,    the typical iris is showing a greater degree of damage and toxic  encumbrances.    The good constitutions of the healthy ‘peasant stock’ are becoming  rarer. Features    that used to be typical in the elderly iris are now more common in the  young.    This coincides with, historically, a rapid increase and dramatic  lowering of    the ages that the killer ‘chronic’ diseases strike, especially cancer.

Many health care professionals feel that if this process continues  along current    trends the very survival of Homo-Sapiens is in doubt. Environmental  pollution,    both chemical and electromagnetic, food processing and latterly  genetic modification    of food, depletion of minerals and trace elements in the soil upon  which our    food is grown, are, many believe, the main threats.

I believe we can reverse these effects, both individually and  collectively.    From the therapeutic standpoint it seems to become increasingly more  difficult    to heal our patients, and ourselves, at least with single or isolated  therapeutic    modalities such as homeopathy or herbalism or nutritional therapy, as  discussed    earlier. However, I believe that if we use broad spectrum healing and  regenerative    methods, instead of prescribing isolated groups of nutrient, herb’s,  or any    other remedies, if we really do take a holistic approach, and  recognise the    basic broad spectrum ingredients the body needs to restore itself,  then the    deleterious effects of our history and environment can be reversed.  Hopefully    then, and along with this process, we as individuals and as a race,  realising    how far we have been corrupted from our genetic potential, instead of  wanting    to manipulate and interfere with nature’s bounty, will begin to help  restore    the planet, the flora and forna, the forests and the oceans to regain  dynamic    health, diversity and vibrancy.

To return to the theme of the role of sea water as a regenerative and  healing    substance, all, or almost all therapeutic agents supplied to try to  engender    the healing process, such as herb’s, ‘superfoods’ e.g. algae, pollen,  ‘energy’    therapies such as reakie, crystal or gem frequencies, orgone beam,  magnetic    therapies etc., are all to a greater or lesser extent biased toward  the activating    and catabolic processes of the body. This is, sooner or later, the end  result.    This is not necessarily the inherent nature of the applied agent. The  herbal    blend, or the algae, or negative magnetic energy in their essence  supply a balanced    package, to promote both energy, cleansing and activity (catabolic or  ‘yang’)    and on the other hand healing, repair and rest. But in practice,  sooner or later,    the repair side needs additional support.

In his own way Dr. Samuel Hahnamenn observed the same problem  occurring. The    therapeutic process would get stuck. Remedies that worked on a patient  would    no longer work. Often patients respond well to a remedy at first but  then relapse.    He identified constitutional reasons for this that he called the  ‘miasms’. He    stated that disease, such as the venereal ones in previous generations  caused    a ‘taint’ within the life principle. (Nowadays we can understand these  as genetic    taints.) These taints pervert the very life processes, eventually  dominating    health, and in practice overcame any dedicated health measures or  regimes the    person would adopt. The three main miasma he identified pervert the  ‘life principle’    thus: (1) Under functioning (The psoric miasm) (2) Destructive energy  (The syphilitic    miasm). (3) Tendency to overgrowth (gonorrhoeal miasm). He eventually  established    the ‘anti-miasmistic’ remedies, many of them being minerals,  especially for    the latter two. The psoric miasm is the easiest to treat, and is  generally cleared,    by stimulating remedies such as sulphur in homoeopathic potency, or  more recently    by superfoods such as the algae or pollen.

Many individuals are quickly, and easily activated out of any  straight forward    under functioning by any common therapeutic modality as listed above.  But sooner    or later the destructive energies manifest themselves and healing is  lost. In    this situation the person can spend years trying many approaches,  often wondering    from therapist to therapist trying to get well, usually to no avail.  They react    badly to everything that is tried. Even with pulse diagnosis before  herb’s are    prescribed, or acupuncture is given, progress is still thwarted. The  nervous    system is usually weak, and sleeps are never sufficiently healing.  This represents    the typical, difficult M.E. case, but is by no means limited to this. I  believe    there are two main reasons for this, even when geopathic and  electomagnetic    stress are taken into account, as well as all the individual reasons  one may    analyse, such as bowel disbiosis, candida, parasitic infection. If the  body    is in possession of its own integrity it will infallibly resolve every  symptom,    factor or specific problem, that has, mistakenly been the target of  our attention.

The first reason, or missing ingredient is, I believe, sea water (The  major    minerals such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, sulphur  also being    high in priority, this much is well known.) Genetically, our basic  structure    is the same as fish. Life is thought to have originated in the sea, as  single-    celled creatures. Then as life became more complex, more individual  cells grouped    together forming teams with various specialised functions and  structure. Each    cell has a thin wall or membrane surrounding it. Inside the cell is a  chemical    environment rendered suitable for the survival of the cell. Outside  the cell    membrane is the sea, with a different chemical/mineral composition. ‘I  am me’,    says the cell, ‘I am different to you, the sea ever surrounding me,  but I owe    my life to you, I will absorb some minerals from you and other  substances as    it suits me, and in return I will let you have some back, the  substances I do    not want.’ This assertive relationship of the cell is what maintains  it’s life.    It maintains homeostasis across its membrane, and is kept alive and  nourished    by its ‘mother’, the sea, all around it.The situation, as far as our  body cells    are concerned, is basically the same, billions of cells surrounded by a  sea    of extra cellular fluid, of a very similar composition to the original  sea from    whence we came. In terms of mineral balance this is easy to see. The  sodium    inside the cell is low and the potassium high. The situation is  reversed in    the surrounding fluid, as it is in the high sodium sea. We now have to  manufacture    our own internal sea, to manufacture our own nourishing ‘mother,’ and  our separate    cells. However the plants and other foods we eat, unless we eat at lot  of blood,    does not provide us with much sodium chloride, the most plentiful  mineral salt    in the sea/our sea i.e. the extra cellular fluid. Plants do provide us  with    sodium, mainly, as the phosphate. Chlorine is supplied mainly bound to  potassium    as potassium chloride. Dr. Leslie Fisher who has carried on the work  of Dr Blackmore    in his study and clinical use of the tissue salts, as given in celloid  mineral    therapy, states that the body combines sodium phosphate and potassium  chloride    to produce, in a abundance, sodium chloride. Taking in sodium chloride  in large    amounts is toxic to the body, and also toxic to most plants. So we  have evolved    to accommodate what plants provide us with. We have to do some of our  own chemical    manufacturing to reproduce our internal sea, which in the past was  provided    free of charge. So nutrients are supplied from plants to feed our  cells’ chemistry.    We have to convert this, as described, to produce our extra cellular  fluid.

There are many creatures, including us, that seem to need a little  help, or    reminder, with the salts, especially sodium chloride; For example  elephants    are known to seek out salt deposits, to satisfy an obvious need . And  possibly    the human desire for salt with food is actually based on a need, but  as discussed    earlier in this article, I believe, it should be as nature provides,  with an    abundance of trace elements, only adequately supplied by sea water.  (Sea salt    is not sufficient in this respect.) When therapies are applied they  tend to    encourage cellular activity. Even when no ‘energy healing’ is applied,  it appears    that all fresh cellular activity from remedies supplied such as herb’s  and superfoods    also produces a corresponding electrical activity. This is hardly  surprising    since every chemical reaction involves electron exchange.

We cannot now separate the nutritional and energetic domains. (It is  my experience    to date that nutritional and herbal substances promote electrical  exchange in    the body, but do not supply chi or biologically available electricity  any where    near as much as do energy sources, a) frequencies. So a situation is  encouraged    of poorly processed electricity and associated cellular over activity,  especially    of the brain. Drinking a little sea water soon resolves this  situation, in a    few minutes or hours if the algae doses have only been for a day or  so, or over    a few days if the dosing has maintained the over stimulated situation  for longer    periods.

So, we can catoragrise the effects of herbal, superfood, and energy  therapies    (when unchecked by the soluble minerals and especially sea water) as:-  promoting    activity, catabolism (breaking down worn out cells and food, and  releasing energy    from them), dehydration. These actions may be classed as ‘yang.’ On  the other    hand supplying sea water promotes:- Relaxation, rest, sleep,  anabolism, (growth,    repair) rehydration, healthy thirst.

It is only by providing a balance of these two main aspects, that  health can    be optimised. Any therapy ‘worth its salt’ must encourage both these  aspects.    By understanding the dominance of either the catabolic (yang) or the  anabolic    (yin) we can realise the need for the counter – balancing effects of  each. For    in reality the two opposites support each other: yin supports the yang  and visa    versa . The body cannot maintain proper catabolic activities, we  cannot experience    vitality and energy in the day, if there has not been a sound  anabolism at night.    And conversely there cannot be a healing sleep if the yang energies of  the body    are insufficient. So a person who has excess cellular energy, excess  ‘trapped’    electrical energies will end up feeling worn out. (Being ‘worn out’  even when    there is insufficient activity or stress to promote it implicitly  indicates    a failure of repair.) Failure of the healing, anabolic side is a  common reason    for much human misery, as Dr. William Phillpott7 puts it. (Typically  with the    weak, M.E., neurasthenic and sensitive types; whereas the strong  constitutions,    more often presenting the more serious under functioning metabolic  disorders    such as cancer and diabetes to name but two conditions, respond better  to stronger    measures, as they are more yang or catabolic defecient)I feel most of  us are    in this position today. Each day, our bodies deteriorate a little  faster than    they repair, and our ‘batteries’ never sufficiently recharge.

Although I do not recommend the use of sodium chloride on its own,  but included    in balance as in sea water, there follows some interesting information  about    the benefits of increased sodium chloride consumption. Common salt has  been    given a bad press in recent years, but if we look more carefully at  what is    known, and has been discovered, it becomes obvious that low sodium  chloride    diets can do more harm than good.

Professor Vijay Kakkar has conducted studies on persons suffering  from chronic    fatigue syndrome (some of these cases could also be justifiably be  labelled    as suffering from ‘M.E.’) He found many of the symptoms are very  similar to    low blood pressure, i.e. fatigue, day time drowsiness, impairment of  short term    memory and concentration, light headedness, increased sensitivity to  light and    noise, stiffness and pain in joints, muscle pain which becomes worse  after exertion    or standing for a long period. Feelings of dizziness, or even  fainting, and    feeling worse in the morning, better lying down, can be confirmatory  symptoms    that the blood pressure is low. Increasing salt intake often dramatically eliminates these symptoms.  The theory    is that in a healthy individual salt loss via the kidney’s into the  urine is    checked by a hormonal network involving the hypothalamus, pituitary  and adrenal    glands. If this regulatory system is not working (it has been  postulated that    this functional failure could have been caused by previous infections)  then    salt loss is excessive. One of the roles of common salt is to hold  water, hence    increasing blood volume, allowing blood to be pumped up to the brain  and into    the tissues in a sufficient volume to carry oxygen and nutrients to  the cells.    The most sensitive blood pressure test relevant to this issue is the  ’tilt table    blood pressure test’. The patient is strapped to a tilt table, blood  pressure    taken with the patient lying down, and the suddenly the table is tilted upright and  immediately    another blood pressure reading is taken. If the second reading is  significantly    lower, then this could be an important issue to resolve. Personally if  I had    this problem I would find out through trial and error how many glasses  of sea    water a day I required, (and take a more holistic approach to bring  all the    regulatory systems into balance, supplying, along with the sea water,  broad    spectrum nutrition as discussed in this article.) The frequency of  repetition,    i.e. little and often is another approach, rather than larger  quantities, and    as discussed earlier, the use of solutions provides an electrical  ‘ionic’ input    that has a definite enhanced action than just adding to food and as  discussed    is more assailable. Quoting from a Mrs N. Aplleyar of Deal.. “A year  ago    my husband and I were feeling thoroughly unwell and exhausted. We  decided to    top up our salt intake. We start and finish each day with a saline  drink. The    effect of this has been quite miraculous. We now have much more energy  and can    easily walk at least two miles without pausing for a rest. We have  been free    of colds and flu this winter, for the first time”. If you want to try  this    but do not have any clean sea water available, try about a pea-sized  piece of    sea salt dissolved in a glass of water one to three times daily.

Is sodium chloride addition to the diet only useful for those with  low blood    pressure and is there still a case for salt restriction for those with  normal    or high blood pressure? The short answer is that excessive addition of  common    salt to the diet should be avoided, but deliberately restricting  sodium intake    may be counter productive, even if you have high blood pressure. Dr. Robert Kark, chairman of the department of medicine at Rush St.  Luke Medical    centre in Chicago, points out that the relationship between sodium and  high    blood pressure is not as clear cut as “common knowledge” tries to    make it. He explains that although there is a strong evidence of a  link between    sodium intake and high blood pressure in part of the population, it is  not a    direct cause and effect relationship. Another segment of the  population reacts    in the opposite way. A study by Dr. John Laragh, a cardiologist at  Cornell university,    of over 100 patients with high blood pressure produced some  interesting results.    He found that severe salt restriction reduced blood pressure in about  one third    of the patients. In about half the cases the low salt diet had no  effect on    blood pressure, and in about one in five the already high blood  pressure actually    rose higher. This was confirmed by Dr. Lawernce Krakoff, chief of the  hypertension    division of the Mount Sinai hospital in New York who stated that  restricting    salt intake can actually make blood pressure rise. As mentioned previously, potassium and sodium play mutually  interdependent roles    in mineral chemical and electrical processes. Potassium is the most  water soluble    of the major minerals, and since it is not added to food like sodium  is, it    tends to be relatively deficient. This is especially the case with  processed    foods, and incorrect cooking methods. Boiling vegetables, then  discarding the    water, will also discard much of the potassium. Potatoes contain most  of there    potassium in the first one eight of an inch under the skin, possibly  why potato-peel    soups are a folk remedy for arthritis and a general tonic. There is a  real need    to raise potassium levels in the diet, by adjusting our cooking  methods, avoiding    processed food and consuming plenty of fruits and vegetables. Drinking  one or    two glasses of grape juice daily is an elegant way of introducing more  potassium    and a wealth of other nutrients. There is more evidence linking some  cases of    high blood pressure to the balance of potassium to sodium .

Magnesium deficiency has been linked to high blood pressure, since  magnesium    allows for correct tension of the small involuntary muscles that line  our blood    vessels. Heart attacks, and other cardiac problems are often partly  due to spasm    of the arterial wall muscles and the heart caused simply by a lack of  magnesium    and other nutrients.

A few more facts about sodium chloride are worthy of note before  widening out    the discussion again. The adult body contains over 100 grams of  sodium, about    30% in the bones, 10% in the cells and 57% in the extra cellular fluid (internal  sea).    The main roles are (1) maintaining osmotic equilibrium i.e. the  difference in    ionic concentration between the intra- cellular and extra cellular  fluid (the    battery effect). (2) Regulating extra cellular fluid volume. (3) Nerve  impulse    transmission (many other minerals such as potassium, magnesium,  calcium etc.    are also required for this) (4) Muscle tone. (5) Nutrient transport.  Typical    diets contain two to seven grams sodium daily. Some populations are  known to    consume up to 40 grams daily. Processed foods contain quite a lot of  common    salt, meat products typically about 2 grams, and baked goods 1.8  grams. It is    surprising, for example that bread contains, typically, half a gram  (500 mgs)    per slice. I found that one glass of diluted sea water, made by adding  half    a teaspoon of the concentrated ‘Inland Sea Water’ from the great salt  lake of    Utah, contained the amount of sodium in two and a half slices of  wholemeal bread.    By taking, for example two glasses of the inland sea minerals a day,  in the    dilution’s just described, we are only consuming a fraction of what we  may obtain    in processed food, e.g. a few slices of bread. So, I hope all of this helps to dissolve the prejudice against sodium  chloride.    It has its place, and a valuable one at that. It is unfortunate that  the discovery    of it’s therapeutic role as part of the greater package of sea water  has been    downplayed by the very company that introduced Inland Sea water to the  health    supplement market. Marine minerals have gone along with the low sodium  prejudice,    and sell the bulk of the filtered inland sea water with the bulk of  the sodium    chloride removed. As discussed earlier all therapy, all supplemental  regimes    will block when sodium chloride exchange comes under stress, either by  excess    or deficiency. I hope, after reading this article that the founders of  the otherwise    excellent company will re-evaluate their stand, i.e. sea water with  the sodium    chloride removed is never as good as the real thing, as nature  provides, from    whence we evolved. Towards a Truly Balanced Nutritional Regime Incorporating Sea Water.

As has been mentioned, the mineral composition of the fluid  surrounding our    cells (extra-cellular fluid) is similar to sea water, and of a  complementary-opposite    profile to the minerals inside the cell. Analysis reveals that this is  a similar    situation to sea water on one hand and the fluids of fruits and  vegetables on    the other hand. Fruits and vegetables contain potassium as the major  mineral,    and smaller amounts of sodium mainly in the form of the phosphate.  Calcium is    usually about twice the magnesium level. In short, fruits and  vegetables contain    much more phosphorus, potassium and calcium than sea water. The major  ‘cation’    of minerals in sea water is chloride, as opposed to phosphorus in  fruits and    vegetables.

If we eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, this should  logically provide    a counterbalance to sea water. However, most of us do not eat  sufficient fruit    to achieve proper mineralisation. I have come across many individuals  that are    eating a so-called healthy diet, whilst still presenting health  problems and    associated symptoms of mineral deficiency. As mentioned earlier, this  can be    partly accounted for by lack of trace minerals in the diet, which  would otherwise    improve the major mineral uptake at cell level. However, I am forming  the opinion    that the main source of minerals that we have evolved to receive are  raw plant    juices. We are basically fruit and vegetable eaters, from an  evolutionary standpoint    (our ancestors resorting to meat when climatic and geographic  conditions failed    to provide enough fruits and vegetables. True carnivores have shorter  gastrointestinal    tracts, possibly to prevent auto-intoxication.) Minerals and other  plant nutrients    are most easily absorbed in liquid form. So, in practice, unless we  consume    a pound or more of fresh fruit daily we may not be obtaining the  nutrition we    need. Raw juice therapy has developed to cover this need. However, the most  convenient    method of consuming a sufficient quantity of juice daily is to drink  one or    more glasses of grape juice. The common type found in shops has been  sterilised,    to prevent spoiling, so is not raw. However, it can still be an  exceptionally    potent therapeutic substance!8 The grape is the most nutritionally  balanced    fruit, the red being a little more beneficial that the other  varieties. A glass    or two of grape juice a day, best taken on an empty stomach, best in  the morning    (it has been found that allowing it to mix with food in the gut,  especially    meat, detracts from some of its benefit) is the single best  ‘nutritional supplement’    to complement sea water drinks. Pineapple juice is also recommended,  but not    as frequently. Of vegetables, the carrot (they should be organic due  to the    propensity of root vegetables to pick up relatively large amounts of  pesticides)    is the most nutritionally balanced and acceptable to the sensitive  digestion.    If your diet has been very low in fruits, and especially if you are  frail or    unwell you may need to introduce the juices slowly, e.g. just half a  glass a    day for the first week or so.

However beneficial pasteurised grape juice is, it must lack some  factors available    in the fresh raw juice. The extra ‘vitality’ in living plants can be  revealed    by sophisticated electronic measuring devices. Generally referred to  as the    ‘aura’ or bioplasmic field if you happen to be a Russian scientist,  this field,    interpenetrating living cells, and radiating out from them, contains  some electrostatic    and subtle magnetic characteristics. Does this ‘vital energy’ affect  the efficiency    of incorporation of nutrients into our cells?, and if so, can this  energy be    added to sterilised juices to render them more beneficial?

The author is currently investigating a simple device that improves  the efficiency    of nutrient absorption of, for example, grape juice. This information  will form    the basis of another article when and if these investigations prove  valid.

Summary of a balanced Nutritional regime incorporating Sea Water

(1) One or two glasses of red grape juice daily, best on an empty  stomach, and    if practical before breakfast. Best sipped, and if taking more than  two glasses    to be consumed over a period of at least 2 hours.

(2) One glass of dilute sea water daily (a level shallow tea spoon,  or two    and a half mls. of sea water concentrate from the Great Salt Lake,  equivalent    to about 4 tea spoons of ordinary sea water, mixed with one glass of  water.)    This should be kept a least one hour apart from the grape juice or  other fruit    juices, since when mixed the effect is quite different and needs more  research.    If you have been taking regular herbal, nutritional or superfoods such  as the    algae or grasses, it is suggested you stop these for about 3 or 4 days  and drink    a couple of glasses of sea water daily to relive any stress (or  dyscrasia as    a homoeopath would say) built up by your regime. This may produce a  variety    of symptoms as ‘decompression’ takes place. Sea water relieves  ‘energetic’ and    physiological stress like taking the weight off a pressure cooker. The  symptoms    ‘coming out’ can be likened to the steam. Often there is a state of  relaxation    engendered by this release of ‘pressure’. It is best to sip the glass  of dilute    sea water over a period of at least a few minutes.

(3) A superfood such as Chlorella or Hawiian Spirulina. (wheat grass,  barley    grass, pollen are examples of other superfoods.) These are best taken  in divided    doses e.g. two or three times a day. It is important to find the best  dose level    to suit you. If weak or frail start with minimal doses and increase  gradually.    If reactions are too strong, usually due to the detoxification  process, stop    for a day and resume possibly at about half the dose. Usually it is  best to    only take one superfood at a time. (Mixing superfoods with herbs will  also produce    powerful synergistic reactions; care and monitoring is suggested) This  is because    mixing superfoods often produces over stimulation and subsequent loss  of benefits    of all superfoods being taken. Whilst the algae may be mixed, even in  this case,    I feel, it is better to give the body the ‘luxury’ of a change. For  example,    if you wish to obtain the benefits of both Spirulina and Chlorella, a  better    result will generally be obtained by alternation e.g. one week on one  and then    a week on the other.

Pollen has been found to have a powerful amplifying effect on other  superfoods.    So when taking pollen it is best not to mix with other superfoods or  broad spectrum    herb’s unless you are being closely monitored, or are very much in  touch with    your needs. In this situation the quantity of pollen and the other  superfood    that needs to be taken is far less than if either item were taken  singly.

Propolis mixes well with other superfoods, but there will still be  the amplifying    effect to a certain degree. Even when separating superfoods e.g. in  the morning    and the evening, they will still mix in the body after a d tes  sufficiently.    However, there is a group of individuals that need an extra ‘reminder’  of the    major minerals specifically attached to the phosphate radical. These  include    most neurasthenic (nerve and energy) types and chronic fatigue types  (M.E.)    Blackmores’ Phosporus Compound provides an elegant intermediate  solution. However,    Blackstrap Molasses, will provide sufficient phosphate along with all  the other    major and trace elements required. (See my article The essential  health benefits    of the electrolyte minerals and trace element in a ‘food state’    and in sea water)

(5) Vitamin D is relatively rare in common foods (Found in oily fish  such as    mackerel and kippers, cod liver oil, salmon and sardines, kelp) but is  present    in abundant amounts in algae, e.g. spirulina and chlorella, at higher  levels    than found in cod liver oil This vitamin is required to help the  proper utilisation    of calcium, and when deficient a person can suffer from many of the  states associated    with calcium deficiency even whilst taking supplemental calcium, in  balance    with the other minerals. Calcium has such a major role in the bodies  functioning    and restorative processes that without its adequate supply or  utilisation the    healing and regenerative process can be limited or blocked. Vitamin D  is produced    in the skin as a result of sunlight. Living in areas away from the  equatorial    zones, combined with lack of an outdoor life, especially over the  winter period    can therefore result in marked vitamin D deficiency. It is therefore  advisable,    in this situation, to supplement with a source of vitamin D. Ten  micrograms    daily i.e. 400 I.U. is a typical supplemental dose. It is best to stop  taking    a supplement e.g. in the summer or when receiving regular sunlight, as  excess    vitamin D can cause metabolic imbalances.

(6) Essential fatty acids. These are now recognised as being widely  deficient    in modern diets. The two main food sources are oily fish and nuts and  seeds.    Oils that are derived from seeds which are heat treated or processed  during    manufacture should be avoided since the essential fatty acids become  damaged    and tend to create free radical damage. This will increase the  tendency to circulatory    disorders and other diseases linked to free radical damage. This  includes margarine,    made popular by the false claims that it is better for you than animal  fats.    Any fat, animal or vegetable tends to be destructive once heated or  processed    (e.g. hydrogenated.) However, olive oil appears to suffer less damage  when heated.    It is advisable then, when frying, to use olive oil and cook at low  temperatures.    Use cold pressed raw oils daily and preferably eat moderate amounts of  nuts    and seeds daily. Personally I find, with the smaller seeds such as  sunflower    and linseed, it is better to grind them, e.g. with an electric  ‘coffee’ grinder,    and mix them raw with other foods, or add olive oil and use (within a  day or    so if covered and cool) as a nut spread or butter/margarine  substitute. Essential    fatty acids , as the name implies have a crucial role in well-being  and cannot    be obtained in quantity in the ‘superfoods’, although Hawiian  spirulina does    seem rich in many of them.

Summary of Reasons For Classifying Sea water as an Important Health  Tonic

(1) It contains a wealth of minerals and trace minerals/elements,  around 90,    that as a group, even though many are in minute amounts, help the body  to function    more effectively. (2) The form of the minerals, i.e. soluble or ionic, is the form  required to    pass through the membrane of every one of the billions of bodily  cells. In so    doing the vitality and electrical processes are rapidly normalised. (3) The balance of minerals is as required to harmonise with the many  gallons    of extra cellular fluid, or inland sea. We evolved from the sea, our  lymph fluid    has an almost identical composition to sea water, and sea water was  authorised    as a substitute for blood plasma in World War Two. Sea water is  therefore the    most natural supplement, in small amounts, e.g. equivalent to 4 to 8  teaspoons    a day as a rough guide. (4) The daily recommended dose of sea water provides the same amount  of sodium    as contained in a typical one and a quarter slices of wholemeal bread.  Taking    common salt in a glass of water, due to ionisation potential, or  electrical    charge at the molecular level, will have a different effect than  taking the    same amount in powder form on food. Taking small doses of daily sea  water is    more liable to reduce high blood pressure, tension, and depression  than to raise    it. Taking large amounts of crude sodium chloride on food can, with  some persons    be part of the cause of these aforementioned problems. Clinical  studies have    shown that low sodium diets can actually increase blood pressure in a  proportion    of individuals. There is more quality evidence to indicate that an  insufficiency    of magnesium and potassium are factors contributing to high blood  pressure and    related cardiovascular problems than the levels of sodium in the diet  (at moderate    levels of sodium chloride in the diet.)

(5) The use of herbal remedies, superfoods, ‘energy medicine’ and any  therapy    or new regime that opens up previously closed or sluggish metabolic  pathways,    nervous connections, or on the energy level, the meridians, will tend  to place    a demand on the processing and distribution of the minerals,  especially the    electrolyte minerals, i.e. the salts. Sodium chloride, being the major  salt    of the body is placed on demand, and sooner or later will need to be  supplied,    balanced, as sea water, in small amounts in solution. Failure to do  this is    , in my opinion one of the major reasons a therapy either blocks, or  is in some    cases unsuccessful from the beginning.

DEMAND THE TRUTH!

"It was the poverty caused by the bad influence of the
 English Bankers on the Parliament which has caused in the colonies hatred of the English and...the Revolutionary War."
– Benjamin Franklin

"Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect every one who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined."

Patrick Henry
June 26, 1788
