Being aware that there aren't a plethora...always like using that word...of good mineralized foods out there, you might be wondering what to do. Here are a few ideas.
We're not medically trained in any way (we know the basics), but here are some ideas you can try if you think the foods you're eating might not be supplying the nutrition you need.
If you do try these ideas, we should probably warn you that you are proceeding at your own risk of death or life. (We're not lawyers either...but again...we know the basics).
- When you eat, eat foods that are unprocessed. Fruits, vegetables, meats, nuts, etc. are more likely to have some amount of minerals (and vitamins) than are processed foods.
- Eat as little processed food as possible. Less fast-food. If you don't know what's in your food, research it or ask. Our opinion is that roasted coffee is still "unprocessed". ;)
- Take a good multi-vitamin. These often have a supply of minerals.
- Try a small daily dose of some good sea salt. Just take with a drink of water and let it dissolve in your mouth before swallowing. Inexpensive.
- Take a broad-spectrum mineral supplement. There are chelated (typically a tablet or capsule), colloidal (typically a liquid to be added to another liquid like water) and pure versions; different versions because there are different opinions about how minerals are most effectively assimilated into our bodies. We suggest using more than one version and using less.
- Drink as much water as you can enjoy drinking.
- If you're not already, get some exercise.
With any of these suggestions, before you start trying them, you might want to have a discussion (about what you're going to do) with your medical advisor.
You might also ask yourself before "Day One" of trying any of these suggestions, "How do I feel today on a scale of 1 to 10"?
Then periodically, after being diligent to follow whatever protocol you choose, you can ask the same question.
Keep track on a piece of paper of your answers.
