What is Mineral Balancing?
Mineral balancing, also called Nutritional Mineral Balancing, is not a new science. It is largely the work of Dr. Paul Eck who was a biochemist and researcher in the ’60’s and ’70’s. He spent his life’s work interested and learning about how different minerals and heavy metals that appeared on an HTMA (Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis) test correlated with disease and illnesses. The HTMA test uses a root hair sample which gives information on the balances and ratios of our minerals and how they are being metabolized in our body. The test gives insight into our internal biochemistry, organ function and overall state of being. The main organ system of the body that it helps understand better are your Thyroid and Adrenals, at the cellular level.

Understanding Mineral Balancing in the Body

To understand how mineral balancing works within the body, we first want to understand the process of disease in the body from the perspective of minerals. Mineral Balancing views disease as:

—A slowed oxidation rate: Your oxidation rate is the rate in which you burn energy. This can and often does occur from depleted glands like the adrenals and thyroid.

—Because of a slowed oxidation rate, this causes reduced oxygenation to your tissues and organs.

—This means that your organs and tissues will be more prone to build up toxins and hold onto them and the toxins accumulate more and more in our organs and tissues.

—We then begin to accumulate forms of oxidized metals and minerals in the tissues which can cause oxidative damage and are very toxic.

Stress (which can come from nutrient deficiencies, physical or emotional stress, toxin exposure, really anything) leads to nutrient depletion. Nutrient depletion leads to slower glandular function and a slower oxidation rate. Slower glandular function and oxidation rate leads to the ability for toxins and unavailable forms of minerals (oxides) to accumulate in our tissues. Toxins and oxides building up in the tissues leads to further nutrient deficiencies, slowing of oxidation rate, and weakening of the immune system.

How Does Mineral Balancing Help?
This is where the beauty of mineral balancing comes in. Dr. Eck believed that you can reverse the whole process of disease and he developed this process in which to do it.

Starting with removing oxides and toxins as well as pathogens that have accumulated. Then we work on restoring your oxidation rate to a balanced oxidation rate. This can take quite some time because it requires the regulation and correlation of millions of enzymes in the body.

Over time this heals the SYSTEM AS A WHOLE! We are used to our body being compartmentalized into different systems (gut, endocrine, cardiovascular, etc.) not viewed as one complete system. This is why I love mineral balancing!

Who Should Consider Mineral Balancing?

If you are someone who:
  • Consider themselves to have a chronic illness or mystery illness, autoimmune issues, or haven't been able to get to the bottom of what is causing your symptoms with other modalities.
  • Has a long-ish list of intolerances (environmental and/or foods)
  • Has tried different protocols before (gut cleanses or detoxes) and seen some improvement while of the protocol or cleanse but once you get off of it get right back to where you were before.​​​​​​​ ​​​​​​​
  • Struggles with anything related to fatigue and/or sleep. Our body can’t function properly without proper cellular energy.
  • Also if you are looking to conceive or just optimize your overall health, improve your general wellness. Minerals are the catalyst to every reaction inside the body. The enzymes  work better if they have the raw ingredients to work with - and those are our minerals!
