Nearly 25 years ago, we had the great fortune to spend 3 years of apprenticeship-like learning alongside a very well credentialed and experienced practitioner, healer, and teacher. We often see much of the information he taught, now published on the internet . . . but few people had the fortunate experience of working with him as we did, and even having him stay in our homes and connect with our families. Over the course of our intensive study we were witness to lots of unusual experiences – many that some would call ‘miracles’.
One of his key discoveries was that the body would always heal – when given the right “nutritional and emotional preparedness”.
Yes – his experience showed that you had to have enough essential nutrients present in the body for healing AND be ready for it emotionally.
Over his many decades of working with people, and uncovering what stopped their healing . . . he discovered that a lack of essential Trace-Minerals was one of the root causes. Trace-Mineral supplementation became the first step for everyone on their ‘road to recovery’.
This man was Sir John Whitman Ray.
In a perfect world, we would get all the minerals we need from the foods we eat. But unfortunately, our soils aren’t as healthy as they used to be and due to heavy food processing and poor diets in general, most people don’t get nearly enough of them. The result is widespread mineral deficiency and an epidemic of chronic disease.
What Are Minerals?
Rocks, metals, and soils all contain minerals, as does the water in the ocean. If you recall your chemistry classes, you’ll remember there are 103 known mineral varieties on the perodic table, and many of them fall into the important trace-mineral category and are recognized as playing a critical role in human health. These include minerals you’ve no doubt heard of such; as iron, zinc, magnesium, manganese, copper, phosphorus, molybdenum, iodine, chromium, potassium, selenium, sodium, chloride, sulfate, and boron. Our bodies require each and every one of these trace-minerals in proper balance to facilitate health and well-being.
