Nutrition Guide Questions And Answers

Doctor John Apsley II answers the most important nutrition guide questions for the health of your mind, body and hormones.

Q: Why has our self-healing system degenerated?
A:Our entire food chain is at fault. Because of the addition of new toxic entries into our food supply coupled to lack of minerals in our soils, lack of minerals in our foods, and improper food preparation and preservation, we lack minerals in our body cells.[1], [2], [3] This devastating deficiency state, which pervasively impacts our moods, behaviors and psychological health (both as individuals as well as a culture) must necessarily translate into lack of respect for ourselves, lack of respect for our earth and apathy to the Divine plan. As a result over time, from generation to generation, we acquire lowered endocrine functions, especially in our thyroid and overall immunity. This is well documented in Dr. Mark Starr's book, Hypothyroidism Type 2.[4]
Q: Why has a lack of minerals caused us to be such a sick nation?
A: It has been the lack of minerals in our soils and improper food preparation that has led to our weakened endocrine system, especially our thyroid function. As a direct result, our human constitution has been degenerating now for many generations. This poorly recognized feature - so causal to the survival of the human race - was thoroughly documented back in the 1930's by Weston Price, Francis Pottenger, William Albrecht, Max Gerson and the U.S. Senate hearings pertaining to this subject way back in 1938.[5], [6], [7], [8]
Yet, even up to the present moment we continue to ignore this disastrous state of affairs inherent in our food chain, remaining largely derelict in correcting its true causation![1], [2], [9]
Our entire cell physiology is dependent upon the tiniest of mineral particles in colloidal form, fully charged. Among the positively charged mineral metals are Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium, Manganese, Zinc, Copper, Iron, but in "free" metal ion format, or in oligodynamic format. Plants put these into oligodynamic format. By eating and more importantly juicing RAW organic fruits and vegetables grown on rock dust rich soils, we will obtain enough of these kinds of oligodynamic minerals. Cooking or processing these precious foods destroys the oligodynamics of these special colloidal minerals. Juicing is the best way to make our body cells assimilate and utilize these nutrients, thus restoring the cells into high gain mode.
Q. What is the difference between a colloidal mineral and any other kind of minerals?
A. A charged colloidal mineral, which is a freely associating oligodynamic ion, is not a salt, but rather a mineral atom suspended (not dissolved) in the liquid bathing our cells.


Suspended minerals not being dissolved in our bodily liquids gives them full elbow room to freely associate with other vital suspensions such as enzymes, which "powers up" such suspensions greatly. This is the real cause generating and executing high energy states of work (Association and Induction) in our body. The A-I mechanism starts with mineral-metals associating with unique structured water and select proteins. It is this triad that optimizes energy interactions with other molecules via enzymatic actions, producing great net gain in energy in the presence of fuels, oxygen and the correct pH. To view a power point which covers this at length - [Click Here]


Non-colloidal minerals are dissolved into the liquid of our cells, which restricts the ability of the mineral to perform work by many magnitudes of order. Basically, minerals need elbow room to vibrate back and forth between electrical charges on cell proteins to generate the amount of chemical reactions necessary to support life. Salt based chemistry, the chemistry of dissolved substances, can only muster up inefficient energy exchanges with other molecules as if they were all placed in molasses at normal body temperatures.


Imagine a pan of Jell-O teaming with delicious pieces of ripe fruit. The delicious and highly nutritious pieces of fruit are like the charged colloidal minerals that freely enter into your digestive process for absorption and assimilation. If you gently shake the pan, the pieces of fruit all begin to shake back and forth, vibrating with energy. Now imagine a pan of Jell-O largely lacking in fresh fruit pieces, or a pan of melting Jell-O with discolored pieces of decaying fruit inside.
Instead of your individual body cells enjoying the fresh fruits in our example, it now must attempt to extract out from such a mess a mere fraction of what it might otherwise enjoy. At the cellular level up to the most outer expression of your body (your physique as a whole), this is the difference which begets either race regeneration or race degeneration. The entire process from the soil to our body cells is a cumulative process which stretches out generation to generation.[5], [7]
Ideally, body cells that are fully loaded with the full complement of high energy colloidal mineral complexes (colloids) I defined as being in the "high gain" state of optimal health.[10], [11] These colloids actually run the metabolism of all cells, and I have defined them as colloidal regenerative factors or cRFsTM. The cRFsTM  are sensitive to cooking and are destroyed with excessive heat. When cells are deficient in such vital cRFsTM, they are dis-eased and attract infections of all kinds, plus cancer and all other chronic degenerative states.[5], [6], [12], [13], [28]
Q: What else besides lack of minerals in our diet & lack of sodium bicarbonate production in our body can induce degeneration?
A: Well, although it must go hand and hand with the lack of minerals, dehydration of a special kind is key to all degenerative processes in our bodies. For example, the water in tumors is in chaos, or may be thought of as chaotic water (usually called bulk water in the scientific literature). But the water in our healthy tissues is highly organized structured water that is overall alkaline, and occurs in multiple, organized layers. These layers of water are also highly polarized due in part to all the free and charged suspended minerals found vibrating in the water. This is technically called polarized multilayered (PM) water. The polarized nature coming from the charged mineral particles orchestrating polarized multi-layers of water cause proteins to expand and contract in a rhythm which is how they actually work to make your metabolism produce energy.[14], [15]
Q: What do you mean by minerals which are freely associating, charged and suspended minerals?
A: For those with a science background or who remain skeptical and want to know the nitty-gritty details, this section further delineates what was stated above discussing covering what colloidal minerals are...
These minerals may be pure (only one kind of mineral) or a small number of different minerals all bundled together, which in turn occur in different size ranges. In order to enter directly into soil bacteria, plant root hairs, or our intestinal tract probiotic bacteria, the size range needs to be very small - under 30 micrometers in diameter, ideally closer to 200 nanometers and best under 23 nanometers in diameter. The mineral particles originate by becoming pulverized over winter under glaciers. 
During the Spring, melting glacial waters flow downstream carrying the particles toward farmlands along with other organic chemicals like oils. Nanotechnology is now confirming this natural process. The charged particles alter the surface tension of the water, making the water more "wet."[16] This super mineral-rich water laced with minerals is called glacial milk.
Since the mineral particle contains metals with electrical charges, the collective charge on these particles can be either positive or negatively charged. This sets up a resonance as well as an association between the differing particles which organizes and collects energy, called Zeta Potential. Any organic materials such as oils may act Zeta-Potential particles, thereby partially shielding particle charge enough to enable organized layering of Zeta-rich particles to aggregate together. Again, Nanotechnology is finding this property useful in the biological sciences.[17] This Zeta Potential aggregation is like a battery of highly organized free energy. This is freely available energy which may drive biological reactions when ingested into living cells.
This swarm of organized resonances of free charged particles within the water is a force which organizes all polar object around it, including water molecules (which are also polar in nature). On the one hand, the larger Zeta-Potential the aggregate is, the more free energy it has. But on the other hand, as the mineral particle is reduced in size and approaches just a few collected atoms, the smaller particle's movement becomes extremely rapid and its surface energy exponentially multiplies. In fact, the movement becomes too rapid to measure by any kind of device. This means the particle's movement, called Brownian movement, produces so much surface energy that is becomes more and more like a wave of energy than a particle of matter. Einstein used this phenomenon to prove atoms existed way back in 1904. It is also why Einstein envisioned that a photon (which is extremely tiny in size) operated in a dual state: photons are both an energy 'wave' as well as a most tiny particle of matter because they are so small - they simply shake violently into an organized wave form more than they display a solid particle character. What this means is that Zeta-Potential energy is the only form of energy sufficient to enable the organized energetics to living processes. It should be regarded as our most essential state of energy-matter required for us to live, and live in a healthy, disease-free state.
Together, the sum Zeta-Potential and Brownian movement supply the energy of most all associations with the suspended fabric of a cell's constituents. Again, Nanotechnology is beginning to unravel this amazing force.[18], [19] Within cells, especially within the most powerful energy-producing center of our cells, this organizing force has been termed parametric resonances (also known as electron-poising).


Parametric resonance helps enable water to structure itself, in effect becoming a storage system of information called "ICrystals" discussed below. Together, this is the intelligence and energy of how electrons organize (associate and induct or install themselves) to conduct life.
This organization operates in much the same way as a liquidity gelatin does that contains choice pieces of ripe fruit. If you push the tray holding the gelatin rapidly back and forth, the suspended fruit pieces all wobble back and forth. This is how the "gel" of the cell is constructed, by zeta-rich mineral particles, structured water and associating proteins congealing, coalescing and pulsating together producing biological work. This is also turning out to be a heavily studied phenomenon in Nanotechnology.[20]

The gel is indeed a structured liquid that enable suspensions to freely operate, a huge biological competitive advantage when working at normal body temperatures over substances simply dissolved into a liquid which require higher temperatures to operate optimally. But it was only deciphered because of the discovery of magnetic resonance imaging, or MRIs, which enables the cells to remain alive while they are analyzed (see here).
Fascinatingly, parametric resonance never stops until death, a virtual perpetual energy device. This explains the incredible human constitution of the long-living. Their physical fitness and energy reign supreme over those of us living in the civilized world deficient in these factors from our commercial food chain. This parametric resonance causes muscle proteins, nerve proteins or enzymes to function so long as enough zeta-rich colloidal mineral particles are present. Parametric resonance is highly agile, meaning it can stay "loosely" bound or associated, and therefore perpetually organize the water molecules around it, or impact the proteins around it to expand and contract.[10]
The above system was elucidated by the late Gilbert Ling, a system he termed the Association-Induction Mechanism (A-I Hypothesis). This is the only way our cells really work. So, without an abundance of all the correct minerals, our cells, tissues, organs and minds begin to fail and flounder. And this explains whey civilized human beings are so unhealthy today (in 1974, the U.S. Public Health Service stated that only 1.5% of all Americans were living disease-free.(A)).
This is how our cells thrive or die - by how well they are endowed with freely associating high energy particles that are well organized into the cell matrix composed of structured water and proline rich peptides we obtain through breast feeding after birth.
This also defines the term "oligodynamic states of minerals as they occur within cells. Oligodynamic from the Greek means, few with great power. Cellular oligodynamic minerals are more bound to water than to salts, and thus more freely able to associate with crucial life molecules such as select intracellular proteins. Thus, oligodynamic particles are life's most essential building blocks in the food chain, and generate the "High Gain" energy state required by all life to healthfully sustain and replicate itself. If these oligodynamic particles were to tightly bond into certain salts, their charge characteristics fade and they lose their vital ability to freely associate with select protein links. Things then go chaotic, and the polarized multilayers of water in the cell begin to ‘destructure' into randomizing agitated molecules.
Oligodynamic particles that lose their oligodynamics, that is they convert from being suspensions in water to becoming dissolved by water, renders them into low gain energy states that induce less organized, even chaotic milieus. For example, instead of potassium being mostly prevalent within cells, it becomes more and more replaced by sodium ions, a feature to the chaotic state of cancer cells. Therefore, water within cancer cells is a great example of such oligodynamic mineral depleted, chaotic water milieus.[3], [12], [14]

Oligodynamic particles of minerals actually control or determine the physical qualities of water. Water becomes polarized and organized when it comes into contact with an array of oligodynamic particles properly associating with select cellular proteins.[14], [15]


By remaining suspended, these particles are free to retain high gain surface energy that can be kept highly organized, preventing the forces of ever present chaos from ushering in dis-ease. Thus, I refer to these high surface energy minerals being in the "high-gain" state of excitation. Such "high-gain" of minerals (especially mineral metals like iron, copper, potassium, magnesium, etc...) states are the only way in which chemical reactions essential to make life happen can occur at normal body temperatures. For more on this, read HERE.
On the other hand, lower energy states of non-oligodynamic "dissolved" substances like drugs, USP vitamins, excessively purified herbal phytochemicals, etc... tend to boggle down the body's optimal colloidal chemical reactions due to their sluggish energy states. When such drugs overwhelm the high gain energy state of the colloidal reactions required by life, death results. We call this iatrogenic death, and it is one of the leading causes of death in the U.S. and all industrialized nations. For more information on a top American killer, see the startling "iatrogenic induced death stats" HERE.
Colloidal chemistry in the cell governs all other forms of chemistry occurring in the body, unless excessive dosages are taken. When high dosages of non-colloidal drugs or substances are ingested, over time these substances can "salt-out" the colloid, rendering it denatured by way of "flocculation." Flocculation collapses the cell's colloids, similar to precipitating out some ingredient to the bottom of the flask in a lab experiment. Another way to understand flocculation is by considering a raw egg. It is a liquidity gel when it is raw, yes? But when you scramble it under high heat, this converts the liquid gel state into a hardened, lifeless mass. Cells do not like flocculation! This is one way healthy cells can be killed. It is also the exact cause of death in so many Hollywood movie stars who overdose, like Judy Garland, Elvis Presley, John Belushi, John Candy, Anna Nicole Smith, Keith Ledger - and the latest casualty - Brittany Murphy. So, when you hear the term, "they fried their brains out with drugs," this should now make perfect sense.
In summary, it is important to know that when a group of these free ions shake together, they electrically and magnetically influence and organize each other according to near and long range repulsions and attractions. This is called the A-I Hypothesis (I call this the Association-Induction Mechanism) discovered by Gilbert Ling, the most brilliant cell physiologist of our era. A-I arranges these minerals into an electrical hierarchy, bending and modifying the properties of water. For example, A-I renders such PM water more wet and capable in terms of function.[15] Such "functionally" enhanced water is not only able of retaining valuable "memory," this information can be transmitted to cells with important instructions. The PM water of cells tends to stay in the cell, even if great pressure is applied to squeeze the water out. This is because the bonding of the water to the cell's gel state is powerful.
On the other hand, ingested structured water rich in valuable minerals is also endowed with being a superior delivery agent of essential nutrients and transporter of wastes out of the cell. Additionally, structured water travels through cells more efficiently, inducing high energy yields from the hydro-electric effects water creates as it rushes through cell membranes. For this reason, water fasting when sick is a favorite healing method used among the long-living.
{Special Note: For purposes of this website, we will hereafter refer to PM Water as structured alkaline water or SAW.}
Q: What besides lack of minerals in our diet can induce the low gain energy state in our bodies (i.e., cellular degeneration) in our bodies?
A: As we age, it is well documented we begin to lose our stomach's production of hydrochloric acid (HCl).(B) This is called hypochlorhydria or achlorhydria. Most folks with chronic health problems will be found to have low stomach acid production. But production of HCl declines as we age even in the absence of identifiable chronic illness by approximately 7% per decade after we reach the age of 20.[22], [23] As the stomach cells make HCl for digesting on the inside of the stomach, the same stomach cells secrete sodium bicarbonate into the blood stream. This sets off the first sequence in what is called the alkaline-tide inside the blood stream.[24]

Therefore, just as HCl is ESSENTIAL for health, sodium bicarbonate is just as essential to our health as well. Together they prime The Regeneration Effect within. For example, one of our greatest physiologists of the last century was able to taken a specific organ meat, wash its two groups of cells in his laboratory with alternating physiological acids and bases (alkali), and presto, the cells sprang back to life.[25] That tells you how important proper pH can be to our inner laboratory!
Just as hypochlorhydria and achlorhydria must lead to chronic degenerative diseases, so must lack of sodium bicarbonate in our system lead us straight into chronic degenerative disease. (Interestingly, folks suffering frequent heartburn or esophageal irritation often have low HCl production.[26], [27] This results from incomplete breakdown of the food due to the lack of HCl. What results are different kinds of acids that irritate tissues only designed to handle HCl, and not these other forms of acids from incomplete digestion.
What every health care authority who fully understands the impact of hypochlorhydria and achlorhydria on our health status has apparently failed to recognize (until now), is that when the stomach produces less than adequate amounts of HCl, it MUST AT THE SAME TIME PRODUCE LESS SODIUM BICARBONATE PROPORTIONATELY!
At the front end (the HCl role), we cannot properly liberate from our food minerals that are contained in it without adequate amounts of HCl. Iron deficiency is a great example of this. Quite often it is simply hypochlorhydria at cause of iron-deficiency anemia. At the back end simultaneously, our body makes equal amounts of sodium bicarbonate which is secreted into the blood stream at the same time the HCl is secreted into our stomach. What happens next is that this sodium bicarbonate sets up two unrecognized systems relating to immunity that I cover extensively in my eBooks. At it final destination, it removes excess hydrogen ions (H+) from the intracellular (inside cells) gel via the "strong ion effect" of sodium bicarbonate. THIS IS CRITICAL!
For all alkaline minerals, many are positively charged. Potassium, calcium, magnesium, manganese, zinc, etc... are all metals with a positive charge. Do you remember your basic high school chemistry class? Or your science classes that taught you about magnets? Remember they taught you that LIKE CHARGES REPEL EACH OTHER! So, my point is, that the unrecognized ESSENTIAL task of sodium bicarbonate production is to ensure maximal REMOVAL of all the stored up excess H+ from the previous meal in order to allow access to the positively charged minerals soon to come down the pike as digestions completes itself.
Therefore, without mineral rich colloids being present in the foods we eat (which can only come from soils treated with rock dust or the equivalent), and without HCl and sodium bicarbonate being produced optimally in our own bodies, NO ALKALINE DIET CAN MAKE UP FOR THESE DEFICIENCIES, and will fail to CURE the underlying causation to disease.
{Special Note: See cautionary regarding sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) below.}
This combination of (1) high energy, (2) high quantity and (3) broad spectrum of minerals (70 or more in all as found in rock dust) interacts with energy fields from the outside, such as: (A) toxic, chaotic geopathic disturbances (i.e., high power electrical tension wires or cell phones); or (B) highly beneficial subtle organizing fields (SOFs) also known as morphogenetic fields. The science of energy medicine involves the latter, and instructs patients to remove all toxic forms of electrical energy from where they work and live, and especially where one sleeps. No electrical alarm clocks, cell phones even if off or wireless phones are to be within 4 feet of the head of the bed.
It also goes without saying that all other forms of toxic behaviors must go too, such as sedentary lifestyles, smoking, excessive alcohol intake and excessive, unsafe use of prescription drugs.
Q: So, electric fields can be toxic (i.e., geopathic) or highly beneficial to us?
A: Yes. When we sleep, 80% of all repair or regeneration takes place at this time. Deep REM sleep is critical to heal and restore the self-healing system, and electrical appliances can disturb this special space in which we must regenerate ourselves.
Warning: If you live within 500 feet of high power tension wires, it would be best to move. Also, cell phones are now suspected to cause cancer, especially brain cancers.[28]
Q: Is there anything else besides (a) a lack of minerals, (b) a special kind of dehydration phenomena, and (c) imperfect sleep that causes our degeneration?
A: Yes. The next to the last ingredient is lack of abundant unaltered, undenatured, raw proteins and raw protein building blocks in our diet - grown on extremely mineral rich soils - which is the only source of colloidal regenerative factors (cRFsTM).[5], [6], [12], [13], [29]  Such vegetarian examples include a special kind of 100% digestible blue-green algae, or for those requiring meats, glandular freeze-dried products.
The last requirement - in fact, the most important factor - is optimal thyroid function. So read the book, Hypothyroidism Type 2.[4]
