- Oops! Getting vitamins is more difficult than we thought!
There are some critical nutrients that the body needs. The body has this innate intelligence to heal itself if it has the raw materials that it needs to go to work and heal its self. Vitamin K2 was discovered by a dentist and it used to be called active X.
K2 is a very little known vitamin that activates very important proteins in the bloodstream. K2 activates something called oxy calcein in the blood which puts calcium into the bones and the teeth. It also activates another protein called MGP which takes calcium out of the coronary vessels and the heart tissue where misplaced calcium has been laid down.
We have all heard that calcium builds strong bones and milk does a body good. I am here to tell you that the bones are made of 12 different minerals, not just calcium. We are getting enough calcium in our diet and I would point people to a book called The Calcium Lie by Robert Thompson. It’s a great book to read about how much we’re being overdosed on calcium.
You see that crusty stuff that forms on your faucet and that is minerals and it can do the same thing to the inside of your blood vessels if it is not being laid down properly. Nutritional items like vitamin K2 are very important. Getting our D3, again, it’s a hormone but we take oral supplementation for D3 levels. It’s very important for absorbing the calcium into our body.
Iodine is one of those things. There’s a great book, Iodine: Why You Need It, Why You Can’t Live Without It by Dr. David Brownstein. We took iodine out of our bread supply in the United States in 1972. Americans are iodine deficient. Iodine was the universal medicine before the 1900s. Iodine was used for everything. It is antifungal, antimicrobial, antibacterial and antiviral. It is pretty much a universal medicine. Every cell in the body needs iodine. The thyroid gland needs about 3 mg of iodine to function properly.
A lot of people think that they get their iodine because they use iodized salt. The amount of iodine that someone needs on a daily basis is completely insufficient in that salt. That is usually your cheap table salt, which is just sodium chloride. That really is a low energy or a dead food to the human physiology. If somebody is going to consume salt, I highly recommend that they use land sea salt, Mediterranean sea salt or Celtic sea salt. Another great book I can direct people to is Salt Your Way To Health by Dr. David Brownstein also available on Amazon.
