About Active Elements® Mineral Element Therapy
The “Active Elements: A to Z” guide.
What’s the purpose of this guide?
- It explains why minerals are the body’s key nutrients.
- It explains why Active Elements® formulas are unique.
- It will help you select your Active Elements® formulas.
The Active Elements® System is based upon the belief that many health issues stem from mineral element imbalances.
These imbalances can occur for a variety of reasons, ranging from modern agricultural practises, to poor diet and stress.
Our Online Active Elements® Assessment System provides a simple way to select your Active Elements® Formulas.
The Active Elements® Concept in a nutshell
The Active Elements® system is based upon the following mineral salts:
- Potassium phosphate
- Potassium sulphate
- Potassium chloride
- Sodium chloride
- Sodium phosphate
- Sodium sulphate
- Calcium phosphate
- Calcium sulphate
- Calcium fluoride
- Magnesium phosphate
- Iron phosphate
- Silicon dioxide
These inorganic mineral salts are made-up of a positively and negatively charged element. The positively charged element is called the ’Cation’, and the negatively charged element is called the ‘Anion’. Through electrical attraction these cations and anions are bound together to form ‘Mineral Salts’.
Science generally only considers the role that the ‘cation’ plays in the body. At Active Elements® we believe that the action of the negatively charged element (the anion), is quite often as important, or even more important than the positively charged element (the cation).
We have also observed that special biochemical relationships exist between the various elements. Relationships that can be manipulated in ways that not only increase the therapy's effectiveness, but also reduce the number of elements needed and therefore the cost.
Our online assessment questionnaire considers the relationships that exist between calcium, potassium, sodium, magnesium, phosphate, sulphate, chloride, iron, fluoride and silica, according to the information entered. This data is then mathematically modelled to predict the most likely imbalances. The algorithms that drive our computer modelling were developed, tested and refined from decades of clinical observation.
We Are All Subject To Mineral Element Imbalances!
As mineral element Imbalances in the soil affect the health of plants and animals, so too can Imbalances affect the health of us humans as well. We can also suffer imbalances without realising it, because the first signs of a mineral element Imbalance are vague and very rarely noticed. If attention is sought for these early symptoms, they are often misdiagnosed and treated as something else. Orthodox medicine quite often treats every symptom as if it were an illness in its own right. This is why a person can be prescribed a whole collection of drugs (particularly evident with the elderly). These early symptoms can be the body’s way of letting us know that something’s wrong. Prevention is always better than cure!
Mineral Element Imbalances are wide-spread and occur for a variety of reasons.
Some identified reasons are:
- Poor diet.
- The way our food is grown.
- The way our food is stored and processed.
- Our body may have difficulty in absorbing some minerals from our food.
- Even if absorbed, they may not be utilised properly.
- Drinking and smoking.
- Physical and mental stress.
- A genetic predisposition for imbalances to exist or develop.
