Which Essential Nutrients are important to my health and well being?

We feel your need. You have read every kind of pop science, snake oil junk mail for hours trying to find something that will answer the one question that has haunted you for years,

"What do I really need to be healthy?"

Your doctor only tells you what drugs to take. You've researched all the mainstream medical sources, but there's still something holding back Your Good Health.

What is it?

For years, people just like you have asked this question from mainstream doctors. Fortunately, for some they were able to get the answer to this and many other questions by asking the altruistic, compassionate medical doctors (they DO exist!) who work with the natural needs of the human body. For Example:

Alcoholism Treatment Protocol through Essential Nutrients

Now that New Year's Day is over, we can have a good look around and see who is still trying to dry up. No, they are NOT still celebrating. They have an underlying problem.

Some alcoholics can even become social drinkers on a very small scale. I have not found many who could. But I think that if started on the program very early, many more could achieve normalcy. I suspect that treatment centers using those ideas will be made available one day, and will be much more successful than the standard treatment today.

This all too often still consists of dumping them into hospitals and letting them dry out, with severe pain and suffering. When they are discharged, most go right back to the alcohol, the most dangerous and widely used street drug available without a prescription.

"Orthomolecular treatment is the treatment of choice. The following protocol for alcoholism outlines the importance of the nutritional factors that have been shown to be very successful on treating this condition. The treatment can be used alone but is best combined with dietary advice and additional nutrients..." Now Mobile Device Friendly!

Extract: Many of us, in the so-called developed part of the world, suffer unknowingly from the effects of high calorie malnutrition. The primitive part of the brain becomes irritable and the victim becomes more inappropriately emotional. Children have temper tantrums and may become violent and destructive. Adults become angry too easily and their emotional reactions are exaggerated. In short, we become more primitive in our reactions to the outside world. The lower brain governs all our most primitive survival reflexes including hunger, thirst and sexual drive. These reflexes are modified by the upper brain under appropriate conditions and that is why the old adage "We are what we eat" can be replaced by "We behave according to what we eat." The two parts of the brain have to "talk" to each other and we call that "self control..."

Diabetes, Blood Sugar Health & essential nutrition

When you go to the doctor, diabetes is a death sentence. You get medications to "control" the problem. You take insulin injections for the rest of your life, and make sure your blood-sugar testing kit is always within reach. But eventually, you know it's going to kill you.

Nutritional practitioners, on the other hand, have been reversing diabetes for decades. Their "miracle cures" result from a simple fact: Given the right nutrients, the body is fully capable of healing itself. Nutritional practitioners therefore make sure that the body gets the nutrients it needs, and they make sure that their patients avoid the metabolic poisons that are so prevalent in the American food supply.

The result, predictably, is yet another "miracle" that modern medicine can't explain. (That's a sad reflection on medical ignorance. At the very least, one would expect them to understand how such cures work, when they occur...)

Children's Health, vitamin, & nutrition resources

Let's face it; kids do not eat what they should to maintain a nutritionally balanced diet. Today it is near impossible to get 100% of the nutrients in foods from the farmers market to your table. Factors such as busy schedules (fast food), food preparation, rapid ripening and preservatives all influence the recommended daily value of nutrients your child is getting each day. Without a balanced diet, your child may be more likely to succumb to the common cold, flu, virus or infection...

Coenzyme Q10: CoQ10 BioEnergetic Synopsis

The body, just like a car, needs fuel. Our primary source of fuel is through fats, proteins, and carbohydrates in our diet. After digestion in the stomach, the nutrients from foodstuffs are absorbed into the bloodstream and circulate to various tissues and cells. The cells have to break down the sugars, fats and amino acids in a form that makes energy. This energy production occurs in organelles, or microscopic organ-like structures, called mitochondria, and CoQ10 plays a key role in this activity...

History of Essiac Tea

A skeptical investigator who originally intended to stay in Bracebridge for just a couple of days, she scrutinized the clinical records and examined over 400 patients. In her detailed report, Dr. Carson wrote:

Several prominent physicians and surgeons who are quite familiar with the indisputable results obtained in response to "Essiac" treatments . . . conceded to me that the Rene M. Caisse "Essiac Treatment" for Cancer is the most humane, satisfactory and frequently successful remedy for the annihilation of Cancer "that they had found at that time" . . .


Many drug side effects are the result of nutritional deficiencies caused by the medications themselves. But the FDA is stubbornly resistant to warn the public how to avoid drug side effects by taking companion supplements. For example, statin cholesterol-lowering drugs deplete the body of coenzyme Q10 which can result in a mortal condition called rhabdomyolysis...

Eye & Ocular Solutions for Healthy Vision

Causes of cataracts include cumulative ultraviolet radiation damage from sun exposure, heredity, poor nutrition, smoking, high blood pressure, kidney disease, diabetes, and the long-term use of corticosteroids. (The last two are major risk factors for cataracts. Please also see the article on Sodium Lauryl[eth] Sulfate as a major cataract risk factor.) Oxidative free radicals produced by the above-listed causes are thought to damage vital biomolecules, including lipids and proteins, resulting in the clumping together of these proteins. The antidote to free radicals, of course, is antioxidants,..

Sexual Libido Secrets to Stamina

According to the British Medical Journal, staying sexually active can be a lifesaver for older men; it cut their mortality risk by a whopping 51% in an extensive study by prominent scientist Dr. George Smith. Sexual problems are associated with unsatisfying personal experiences and relationships, lack of physical and emotional satisfaction, and low feelings of happiness. The conclusion is that there is a "strong association between sexual dysfunction and impaired quality of life," and that sexual dysfunction "warrants recognition as a public health concern.

Dietary Supplement and Health Education Act, DSHEA vs CODEX

Immediately following this announcement, millions of Americans learned about how famed vitamin doctor, Jonathan Wright's patient-filled medical office was raided the same month by nearly two-dozen gun-toting, flak-jacketed FDA agents in the name of regulating supplements. Battering down an unlocked office door, these agents, backed by burly sheriff's department deputies, lined up staff and patients against the wall, pulled IV's from patients arms in middle of treatments, confiscated patient records, took the hard drive from the office computer all because Dr. Jonathan Wright was using nutritional supplements to heal very sick people who could not get help from standard allopathic medical care.

As the story developed, it turned out that this Gestapo-style raid was standard operating procedure for the FDA and as the general public became aware of just how many doctors' offices, manufacturing companies, distributors and health food stores had been assaulted by similar raids, the horror of all this forged a mighty health freedom army that resulted in unanimous passage of DSHEA...

Magnesium Pain Relief of Migraine Headaches

Magnesium deficiency is one of the most common nutritional problems in the industrialized world today. This deficiency is the result of agricultural practices, food preparation techniques, and dietary trends. Despite the current recommended dietary allowance (RDA) for Magnesium (350 mg. per day), it has been estimated that adults average less than 50% of this requirement. The health implications are nothing short of catastrophic...

Mineralized Organic Super Foods: How to grow your own

The place of soil re-mineralization--as a fundamental health strategy--is corroborated not only by experimenters in improving plant and animal wellness,but as well in prehistoric fossil records. For instance, paleopathologist Roy L. Moodie has found that "the early faunas were free of disease" and that "the most ancient bacteria were harmless," i.e., non-pathogenic in nature. He maintains that "There are no known cases or examples of infection, no tumors, few traumatic lesions or injuries of any kind prior to Devonian" and that "the earliest animals were free from disease..."

MSG Causes Most Obesity In US And Canada

Is Your Vitamin Natural or Synthetic?

How do you know if your synthetic multi is as good as its advertising says it is?

Are you gambling with your health by taking "their" word for it? If you are taking a multivitamin, this is something you definitely want to find out.

Please don't make the mistake of shopping for supplements at discount stores or large chains like Wal-Mart or Walgreens. In my opinion, these are classic examples of companies that primarily use cheap synthetic supplements.

Synthetic alternatives to whole foods are known as "isolates." Your body will only absorb a small percentage of an isolate form of vitamins and minerals - and utilize even less (Your body absorbs much more of the whole food form.) On top of that, there may be side effects, depending on the quality of the isolate... (continues)

23 Years Of Documented Vitamin Safety

Here is further support to that already provided in "Use (Abuse) of Regulations to Protect Pharma Monopoly" that vitamins are safer than foods. Yet the regulatory bodies are going to "protect" us from these safe products, never mind the toxicity of drugs that are killing millions! Obviously safety is simply a ruse to protect their pharma buddies....

(OMNS, Feb 27, 2007) Over a twenty-three year period, vitamins have been connected with the deaths of a total of ten people in the United States. Poison control statistics confirm that more Americans die each year from eating soap than from taking vitamins.

Where are the bodies?

A 23-year review of US poison control center annual reports (1) tells a remarkable and largely ignored story: vitamins are extraordinarily safe.

Annual deaths alleged from vitamins:
2005: zero
2004: two
2003: two
2002: one
2001: zero
2000: zero
1999: zero
1998: zero
1997: zero
1996: zero
1995: zero
1994: zero
1993: one
1992: zero
1991: two
1990: one
1989: zero
1988: zero
1987: one
1986: zero
1985: zero
1984: zero
1983: zero

The zeros are not due to a lack of reporting. The American Association of Poison Control Centers (AAPCC), which maintains the USA's national database of information from 61 poison control centers, has noted that vitamins are among the 16 most reported substances. Even including intentional and accidental misuse, the number of alleged vitamin fatalities is strikingly low, averaging less than one death per year for more than two decades. In 16 of those 23 years, AAPCC reports that there was not one single death due to vitamins.

These statistics specifically include vitamin A, niacin (B-3), pyridoxine (B-6), other B-complex, C, D, E, "other" vitamin(s), such as vitamin K, and multiple vitamins without iron. Minerals, which are chemically and nutritionally different from vitamins, have an excellent safety record as well, but not quite as good as vitamins.

On the average, one or two fatalities per year are typically attributed to iron poisoning from gross overdosing on supplemental iron. Deaths attributed to other supplemental minerals are very rare. Even iron, although not as safe as vitamins, accounts for fewer deaths than do laundry and dishwashing detergents.

These statistics are in direct opposition to the body count achieved through properly prescribed drugs by conventional medicine. Please read the 2000 report from by Dr. Barbara Starfield in the Journal of the American Medical Association: Medical System Third Leading Cause Of Death.


  1. Annual Reports of the American Association of Poison Control Centers' National Poisoning and Exposure Database (formerly known as the Toxic Exposure Surveillance System). AAPCC, 3201 New Mexico Avenue, Ste. 330, Washington, DC 20016.

    Download any report from 1983 onwards here free of charge. The "Vitamin" category is usually near the end of the report.

  2. There is not even one death per year from vitamins. Pharmaceutical drugs, properly prescribed and taken as directed, kill over 100,000 Americans annually. Hospital errors kill still more.

  3. Most illness is due fundamentally to malnutrition. This not only includes the chronic diseases, but also viral and bacterial acute illness, which are greatly aggravated by inadequate nutrition.

    Supplements are not the problem; they are the solution. Malnutrition is the problem.
