It seems an auspicious date, 12/12/12 as it were, to unveil the genesis of Whole Earth Minerals. After much research, two groups I have worked with have finally formed an alliance through Medicatrix Naturae and the release of Whole Earth Minerals, a complex of humates, humic acid, fulvic acid and 72 biominerals is upon us.
Like much emergent science, the subject matter is esoteric. The playing field is crowded with multi-level marketing claims and polluted products; yet the underlying truth is that humates represent a series of compounds which are very beneficial to the human body. How best to bring them to the people?
Well, in natural medicine the first rule is Primer Nocer Noctum, or first do no harm. I have to tell you that when I and my associates first started investigating humates, we came into contact with some material that was utterly polluted. Amazingly, some people believe you can pull organic mineral deposits out of the ground without any purification or processing and serve them to people! This, my friends, is blatantly irresponsible and dangerous.
At long last we have found a raw material that meets our standards (including the standards of California’s Proposition 61!) and are moving forward with our dietary supplement Whole Earth Minerals. It is an exciting time to be part of this new science connecting us with this ancient living organic material.
There is so much to write on this subject that we have created a blog, Living Organic Earth, which will be filled with information on humates, humic acid, fulvic acid and trace minerals in the days to come. I will say this; the research on humates is compelling, yet a great deal of misinformation (like this) exists out there. The truth is this may be one supplement we can’t afford not to pay attention to.
