Minerals play a critical role in the health of all living organisms. They are vital to overall mental and physical well-being. Without the aid of minerals, our bodies could not assimilate vitamins. Although our bodies can produce a few vitamins on their own, they cannot manufacture a single mineral. We therefore must receive all necessary minerals from the substances we put into our bodies. But did you know some of the minerals essential for optimal well-being are actually healthy heavy metals?
What is a Heavy Metal?
A heavy metal is defined as having a specific gravity at least five times that of water. In small quantities, certain healthy heavy metals (heavy minerals) are nutritionally essential, such as iron, copper, manganese, and zinc. Others, such as silver, gold, and platinum, are not considered essential but they are known to provide enhanced mental and/or physical health.
A common misconception is that all heavy metals are bad for our health. In reality, we could not live without many of them. When our bodily levels of certain heavy metals drop too low, symptoms of deficiency can arise in the form of disease. So it’s not about the weight or density of a metal, it’s whether the metal is health-giving or toxic. Heavy metals that are very harmful to our health include lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic, cobalt, etc. And too much of any mineral is never good.
Some minerals are found in abundance in the body, such as calcium, magnesium, sodium, phosphorus, and potassium. These are called macro minerals. Other minerals are found only in trace amounts, and are therefore called trace minerals. There are over 50 trace minerals, many of which are heavy metals, that promote health and a state of well-being. Three of the most useful of these are Colloidal Silver, Colloidal Gold and Colloidal Copper. Colloidal Silver is well known for its anti-microbial properties, and silver has been utilized in medicine for hundreds of years. The benefits of Colloidal Gold and Colloidal Copper are less well known.
Gold is known to be a powerful, yet subtle, pain reliever, and has been continually used by medical doctors to treat arthritis since 1927. It was famous over 100 years ago for its role in healing heart conditions, improving blood circulation, and rejuvenating sluggish organs. Gold has been shown to be especially helpful for conditions that affect the mind, emotions, and spirit. Studies have shown that consuming Colloidal Gold increases the I.Q. by 20% after a few weeks. Willpower is also said to increase, and for this reason gold was once commonly used in the U.S. to treat dipsomania (uncontrollable craving for alcohol). An increase of willpower from gold has reportedly helped many people overcome obesity and drug addiction.
Europeans have long been aware of the benefits of gold in the body, and have been purchasing gold coated pills and ‘gold water’ over the counter for over a century. Gold seems to have a calming effect on the nerves and elevates the mood, and has been successfully used to help alleviate anxiety and depression. The homeopathic remedy, aurum metallicum, is made from gold and is used to treat suicidal people. Hot flashes and chills are said to be helped by gold. Today, state-of-the-art technology is used to produce Colloidal Gold solutions that are extremely bio-available. Properly made Colloidal Gold is ruby red in color, contains only pure 24k gold in laboratory-grade water, and is 100% safe to use daily.
Copper is an essential mineral for skin health. It’s necessary for the formation of collagen, elastin, and glycosaminoglycans (GAG’s – the cement that bonds tissue components together). Some of the external signs of a copper deficiency are skin sores, eczema, age spots, varicose veins, wrinkles, sagging of the skin, and grey hair. Applying Colloidal Copper to the skin and scalp is an excellent way of delivering additional copper to the body. Doing this directly stimulates the formation of collagen, elastin, and GAG’s, thus promoting smoother, younger looking skin. Colloidal Copper gives skin a nice, healthy glow as well as increases the skin’s ability to retain moisture.
Colloidal Copper activates copper-dependent enzymes in the dermal layer which help to repair, restore and rejuvenate the skin. Copper plays a part in the reproduction melanin and some claim it reverses grey hair. Copper has been called the elixir of youth and has been used for millennia by empresses, queens, princesses, and the rich and famous of their day for beauty enhancing and anti-aging treatments. Copper is a powerful antioxidant for skin and is helpful for inflammation. Colloidal Copper is the copper supplement of choice because it contains ultra small, bioavailable nanoparticles of pure copper in laboratory-grade water, and nothing else.
