Staying Healthy Host Jeff Burke, N.D., M.H., and Val John Anderson discuss the shortfalls of modern food, i.e., that crops are grown in mineral- and nutrient- deficient soils. Further, today's modern, processed foods (further depleted of minerals but loaded with artificial flavors) can trick the senses and keep a person from eating a healthy, minerally balanced diet. Our senses, specifically taste, serve as a guide to choose right foods to put into our bodies. For example, we are thirsty because we need water, a craving for salt can indicate a need electrolytes, a sour foods craving can indicate a need for vitamin C and other nutrients in balance with vitamin C; finally, a craving for umami (savory) may indicate a need protein and amino acids. Jeff and Val discuss how to incorporate good, balanced mineral nutrition (along with following your senses) daily with elete Electrolytes, FortiSalt, and Anderson's CMD to stay in optimal mineral balance.
