DEFICIENCY- Lack of Nutrients in the Diet or Inability to Absorb them

The human body including the cellular fluid is composed of oxygen, carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, calcium, phosphorous, potassium, sodium, magnesium, sulfur, chlorine, iodine, iron and many more nutrients. 1 These nutrients represent our bodies electrical energy source. When a person is depleted of electrical energy, his body does not have the strength to throw off toxic accumulations from cellular metabolism or from improper dietary habits.

Sir Arbuthnot Lane was a famous English surgeon, he said. “All maladies are due to the lack of certain food principles, such as mineral salts or vitamins, or to the absence of the normal defenses of the body, such as the natural protective flora.” 2 Our bodies cannot heal or continue their existence when they lack magnesium, or copper, or potassium, or essential vitamins. Yet many of us live under the illusion that our bodies will survive, and thrive under deficient conditions. And we continue to view our diet and lifestyle as if they where of limited importance, rather than seeing that the nutrients ingested, like consciousness, are the fabric of the building blocks of our life. “We need the earth minerals such as, magnesium to activate more than 300 different enzymes that conduct the metabolic processes of life. Magnesium is also required for each of our trillions of cells to construct microtubules, the tiny passageways that distribute nutrients within the cell…. Without an adequate supply of these essential nutrients, our very humanity disintegrates.” 3 When we do not breathe or exercise enough, are body becomes depleted. Without sufficient nutrients, our bodies cannot create microtubules. Without these microtubules, and other fine nervous passage ways, our bodies will be closed down to receiving energy from the universe.

Even if we ingest enough food nutrients, we can still be deficient. This has to do with the bodies ability to absorb food. Lack of food absorption can be caused by not chewing food enough, or through the accumulation of toxins lodged in crevices within the body. As I will describe later, most people’s diet are chiefly composed of toxic elements. The result of our toxic build up and improper food intake is that many of us exist in a state where we only absorb 10-20% of the nutrients from the food which we eat. Further aggravating the absorption problem is that most of the foods we eat are low nutrient foods. “[F]or instead of assimilating all the good that is needed from the ingested food, the average person utilizes only about 10% of its real value, and the rest is wasted on down the eliminative drain.” 4

Deficiency of nutrients is also a significant factor in mental illness. “Doctors report that mental health problems including depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, ADHD, anti-social and learning disorders, and obsessive-compulsive disorders often have a common cause: insufficient nutrients in the brain.” 5 According to the USDA 1995 survey, the average adult over age 20 is between 20-70% below the recommended daily allowance for food nutrients of such vitamins as A, E, calcium and magnesium. The percentages below the RDA very from vitamin to vitamin. Bare in mind, the RDA represents the minimal needed for survival, and a majority of our population is far below the minimal. Later we’ll examine evidence which shows that a healthy human needs between four and ten times the levels of vitamins and nutrients than is recommended by the RDA. Based on this information, and based on the fact that most of us only absorb about 10% of our nutrients a generous estimate would be that between 1-3% of the US population gets enough nutrients.

When I reflect on nature’s law of balance, and how consciousness pervades our entire beings, it seems that over time, nature would surely act out if it where not treated well. According to the law of balance, the nature within the cells of our body will respond to its Deficiency, to its Toxemia, and to the death wish placed upon it. The response will not be kind, but it will be exactly in the force of the abuse it received, it will be degeneration, illness, and suffering.
