Minerals: The Elements that Control the Action!

Guest Post: Elliot Harvey's Natural Health Column: For a long time, vitamins have been the dominant conversation piece. However; without proper minerals, all enzyme activity, vitamin and amino acid synthesis would cease. Minerals are the chemical reactor for many biological functions, including formation of bone and blood cells, nerve function, muscle tone, cellular fluid balance (acid/alkaline balance), hormone production, energy, tissue growth and assimilation of nutrients from food. Minerals essentially come from one of two sources, either inorganic, being from rocks, clays, sea beds (coral calcium has essential minerals and trace minerals-those from prehistoric dead coral reefs are preferred) etc., or organic-naturally processed through plant metabolism.

Ask Seth: Growth on Dog

Hi Seth. We have a 7 year old yellow lab who is like our daughter to my wife & I. She has a growth on her leg. We took her to our local vet here about a year ago and he looked at it and said that because it is located on her rear leg joint, it might cause her leg problems if he removed it… He wasn't very convincing – acted as though he was not too sure of himself when he talked with us, so I really would like your professional opinion.
