Planks of Health
This vitamin is the sunshine of your life and it is vitally important to your health. Nearly all living things need the sun to stay healthy including humans. But, it is rare that we get sun each and every day here in the Northeastern United States. So nearly 80 % of the people that live here are Vitamin D deficient. All adults use approximately 4000 IU each and every day. Plus, this vitamin is also a master hormone that directs traffic for all the other systems in the body. Nothing works well without this element and it is the first plank of health. The body cannot do without it and those that are the sickest need more of it!
Selenium is a vital mineral and one that we either do not have or have in very limited amounts in the soils here in the Northeast. All warm blooded animals including humans must have this mineral for them to remain healthy. It is fully 1/3 of your immune system and cancer cells cannot divide in a selenium rich environment. This is your body’s first defense against cancer. Your brain information centers are powered with selenium. Selenium is stored in your ligaments and before your brain will suffer a shortage, your body will take it out of the ligaments and send it to protect the information centers in the brain. As the selenium is removed from the ligaments, the ligaments will shrink and become too tight. This causes pain and inflammation in the joints causing the belief that it is arthritis when you really have a selenium deficiency. On an MRI there is no difference. The damage to the joint is the same but the selenium deficient joints can be corrected. After 45 years of age, 8 out of 10 people that live in the Northeast will suffer from this shortage. It is also why cancer will be our neighbor unless we wake up to these facts.
There are 17 B’s needed by the human body, 11 of them are instrumental for good health. If you get short of B -1 you get type 2 diabetes, B -12 anemia, to name just two of a dozen. Depression, anxiety, brain fog and a general feeling of being unwell ride this horse. You can handle 1/3 more stress on a good quality B – Complex and see the positive effects in less than two weeks.
This is a food nutrient; it will take the place of Aspirin and has well known benefits. It coats the red and white blood cells so they slide by each other with no effort and takes the strain off of the heart. It strengthens the vein and artery walls and makes them more elastic so down comes the blood pressure. If the veins and arteries are more elastic nothing sticks to them, so the arteries stay clean.
These four elements are the platform of good health whether we know it or not. Each and every one of these elements affects the heart, brain, and every system in the body. Unless you see it with your own eyes, it is hard to believe, it is sooo simple, and yet complex at the same time.
