Minerals are considered by many researchers in the field of nutrition to be the key nutritional elements in the human body. Linus Pauling once stated “every illness can ultimately be traced to a mineral deficiency”. Building on the work of the late Dr Eck, Dr Lawrence Wilson has created a system of nutritional support based on balancing the major ratios on a properly performed hair analysis. This program generally involves a hair tissue mineral analysis test with ARL Laboratories every 3-6 months, a specific diet high in cooked vegetables, a few targeted nutritional supplements and detoxification procedures which can be safely performed at home. Meditation is another extremely important component of this program, which is specifically designed to increase “yang” on inward flowing energy and reduce “yin” or upward and outward flowing energy. There are some very noticeable mental and emotional changes that occur when the key mineral ratios of the body are balanced. This process also appears extremely helpful for healing past emotional trauma or even severe trauma.
Nutritional balancing is not a substitute for regular medical care. It is not a means of diagnosis, treatment, prescription or cure for any disease or condition, mental or physical. Instead, it is a means of reducing stress and balancing, strengthening and restoring body chemistry. When this is done, many health conditions improve by themselves.
