How Minerals in Our Bodies Help or Hurt, with Wendy Myers #67
Feeling exhausted? Icky? Gaining inexplicable weight? Maybe there’s a mineral imbalance. In today’s podcast episode, Wendy Myers talks about minerals and mineral hair analysis. How to detox the metals in the body and how to begin the mineral restoration process. Tune in for her supplement recommendations and some very interesting information about the water we are showering ourselves in daily! The 101 on Minerals Most people are mineral deficient in magnesium, zinc and selenium. If you’re taking a multivitamin, it may not be enough or the right form to be absorbed into the body. Even organic food is mineral deficient. The soil and pesticides are killing the minerals in our food. Stressors, emotional, nutrition, EMF contribute to nutrient deficiencies. When we think about our supplements we really need to focus on minerals because they power our body. How do we figure out what minerals we’re missing? #1 Start taking magnesium. Will most likely need to take it separately from a multivitamin. Wendy goes over which types of magnesium we need. Avoid magnesium oxide…it’s garbage! It has about a 4% absorption rate. We need about 5 times our body weight in pounds, in milligrams. If you way 200 lbs. you need 1,000 mg of magnesium. A multi-mineral is great. Oceans Alive Marine Phytoplankton is what Wendy takes because it has a good absorption rate and has amino acids, omega 3 fats and 180 nutrients in addition to all the minerals. Iodine and selenium are big deficiencies. Iodine being the 2nd most common deficiency. And selenium is much needed to support the thyroid. Mercury toxicity is one of the main reasons for low thyroid function. We actually need both iodine and selenium for proper thyroid function. What Contributes to Mercury Toxicity? Coal burning. The fossil fuel burning to keep our lights on, releases mercury into the air. The toxic air settles into the ocean and gets into our food. Mercury is also in the air because of burning bodies in crematoriums. Mercury amalgam fillings, get them out of your mouth!
