Minerals and their Ratios for Optimal Health

Minerals and their Ratios for Optimal Health

To achieve optimal health, you must have balanced adrenal glands. Why, because your adrenal glands are the key to balancing your mineral ratios including trace and macro-minerals. This process is the key to body balance and alkalinization. This occurs through the Gluco-Corticoid-Steroid Pathway (GCSP) in a certain portion of the adrenal glands. This is why junk diets cannot help you maintain proper nutrient content. 

Adrenal Balance is the Key -Pam Killen, Ora Wellness 

The other part of your adrenal function is to synthesize, from cholesterol, steroid sex hormones and to produce some of your stress neurotransmitters. Eat proper nutrition and essential nutrients daily, keeping the balance of these essential elements.  I call this “Nutritional Dentistry.”

The most important minerals to keep in the proper ratio:

  • Calcium, Ca++
  • Magnesium, Mg++
  • Sodium, Na+
  • Potassium, K+
  • Phosphorous, P+ (Phosphate, PO4+++), increased phosphate levels decrease zinc, calcium and magnesium and upsets the electrolytic balance.
  • Boron, B
  • Molybdenum, Mo
  • Zinc, Zn++
  • Copper, Cu++
  • Selenium
  • Iodine

Proper Mineral Ratios Help the Remineralization Process

Drinking soda bad for teeth
  • The Ca++ to P+ ratio needs to be 2.5-1, then, the resorption process stops.  This is most important, and is why an excess of phosphate in soda pop is so bad. The phosphate ion (PO4) in soda pop adds way too much PO4+ into the system.
  • Do not take calcium with iron. When they compete, calcium wins and iron becomes oxidized and damages other important nutrients.
  • Calcium can become bio-unavailable, if this ratio is not achieved.
  • Lead interferes with the body's ability to use calcium
  • Mercury is an un-coupler and messes up enzymatic balance

Trace Minerals vs. Macro Minerals

  • Healthy metals become displaced by toxic heavy metals!
  • Minerals are like triggers, as they displace other key minerals.
  • Minerals can displace other minerals, for example: fl- can replace Ca++ in the bone matrix.

Selenium Availability

  • Selenium related to environmental toxins
  • Urine is the best medium to test for selenium, it’s better than plasma
  • Selenium is anti-neoplastic, or anti-cancer nutrient
  • Iodine and selenium must always be balanced (don’t high dose either one of them)
  • Heavy metals become concentrated over time and concentrate in your brain
  • Selenium decreases double-stranded breaks in cancer genes, thus, it’s cancer protective

Arsenic and Mercury Both Bind to Selenium

  • Iodine can solubilize mercury
  • Arsenic is also associated with an increase in  CVD
  • Tea can contain high levels of flouride, nickel and cadmium.  So can coffee.
  • Alcohol also blocks selenium.

Why are Nutrient Co-Factors Important?

  • WAPF: fat soluble vitamins are activators that create the spark. Co-factors that drive the proper enzymatic reactions that gives you the energy you need to function
  • LOW LEVELS OF STOMACH ACID decreases protein breakdown and impairs calcium absorption in the gut.

The Copper and Zinc Association

  • Copper is a pathogen fighter
  • Zinc is an Age-Buster
  • Low copper also can cause bleeding gums
  • High copper can also contribute to autistic spectrum diseases
  • Thrush; CFS, FM, and Candida can be exacerbated by a disruption in Cu and Zn.
  • If copper is not balanced, you cannot resolve your candida issues
  • Zinc is a copper antagonist,
  • Zinc is blocked by alcohol and coffee.
  • When zinc decreases testosterone converts to estrogen
  • Zinc levels are increased by eating red meats and oysters
  • Zinc is one of the most important elements in the body.
  • Without zinc, you cannot make stomach acid.
  • Without stomach acid, you cannot digest your food.
  • Without nutrition, your body can’t repair itself.
  •  In addition, without zinc, you cannot make neuro-chemicals like serotonin, dopamine, norepinephrine, and epinephrine.

Essential vs. Non-Essential Minerals, Amino Acids & Fatty Acids

Remember that minerals are called "essential" because your body cannot make them. You must take them in on a daily basis.  

The same is true with the essential fatty acids and essential amino acids. Some can be synthesized by your body and some cannot.

8 Essential Amino Acids

  1. Leucine
  2. Isoleucine
  3. Lysine
  4. Methionine
  5. Phenylalanine
  6. Threonine
  7. Tryptophan
  8. Valine, and some say histidine

Non-Essential Nutrients can be synthesized in your body by putting together, also known as synthesizing, smaller nutrient molecules.

Essential Nutrients cannot be synthesized by your body and therefore need to be consumed in your diet.  Minerals cannot be synthesized either!!  They must be added to your diet.


BECAUSE: THIS MINIMIZES THE BINDING EFFECTS OF PHYTIC ACID WHICH BINDS MINERALS IN THE GUT.  Or, you should decrease grain consumption and foods that contain higher amounts of phytic acid, altogether!
