Making Minerals Unavailable

Fluoride, Phytates, Medications 

There are other factors in our diet and lifestyle that further depletes nutrients from our body. Fluoride binds minerals and makes them unavailable to the body and is found in pesticides, herbicides and fungicides and is therefore in our food. Fluoride is found in toothpaste and in our drinking water and cannot be removed unless we have reverse osmosis water filtration systems installed. Fluoride is present in restaurant food, processed foods and drinks. It is also present in many medications including 

We Are Victims Of The system

The popular Paleo/high protein diet or a high calcium diet cause mineral deficiencies as too much calcium blocks the uptake of magnesium. Heavy protein diets are lacking in vital nutrients and are very acidic which causes further mineral losses from bones via urination.

Consuming a high phytate or oxalic acid diet will reduce absorption of vital nutrients.  Phytate is a natural chemical found in legumes, nuts and grains that prevents the seeds from germinating until the conditions are favourable.  To remove phytate we need to soak & germinate the seeds first before using - this is what is called "activated seeds, grains and nuts". Oxalic acid occurs naturally in some plants and although it will do no harm by having these greens raw occasionally, it would be better if some of them were lightly cooked as this will remove the oxalic acid. The following plants contain oxalic acid: 

  • Beet greens
  • Rhubarb
  • Spinach
  • Beetroot
  • Swiss chard
  • Endive
  • Cocoa powder
  • Kale
  • Sweet Potato
  • Peanut
  • Turnip greens
  • Mustard Greens
