A WORD FROM DAVE:
Today I want to talk to you about conductivity.
Most people know about electrical conductivity, which is the way that electricity can move through certain objects. For example, metal is highly conductive, with copper being the most conductive. We know that when lightning strikes the ground it can have so much electricity that the minerals in the ground can actually conduct that electricity and electrify somebody. When it’s raining similar things can happen, and the reason that electricity is conducted is because of the mineral content of metals. The human body is also a highly conductive being.
In fact, the conductivity of our bodies will dictate the rate at which signals come from our brains and are transported into the nerve endings. The muscles of our bodies dictate every single activity from the beating of our hearts to the breathing of our lungs. Virtually every single conscious and sympathetic muscle activity, every muscle movement, is triggered because of the conductivity within our bodies. When the conductivity in our bodies suffers because of a lack of minerals, we can have cramping, headaches, heart attacks, and any number of problems and diseases. In fact, all problems and diseases at some point are linked to a lack of the proper minerals in the body.
Now foods are our primary source of minerals, and in an experiment that I have put into a video form I want to show you the power of conductivity and how foods can dramatically increase the conductivity of our bodies. I do this by showing you how this food can dramatically increase the conductivity of water. So please watch this video and see the amazing impact that Green Kamut can have on water and also on your body.

Minerals and your body
By John Spencer Ellis
We've all heard that it's necessary to provide our bodies with vitamins and minerals, but few of us understand why. And while vitamins and minerals are very different, the body must have both. One obvious difference is that vitamins, because they contain carbon, are considered organic substances. Minerals lack carbon and therefore are classified as inorganic substances.
Inside the body, vitamins and minerals play many important roles. But whereas the body can continue to function without getting the recommended daily allotments of some vitamins, a mineral deficiency can lead to death. As important as they are, most people today don't really know that much about minerals and how they impact the body.
Some of the roles minerals play
In order to make the hemoglobin found in red blood cells, the body needs iron. In order to build strong teeth and bones, the body needs calcium. Calcium is also crucial for the proper functioning of the kidneys, muscles and nerves. Without adequate levels of Iodine, the thyroid gland cannot perform its most important task which is to produce energy. Manganese, selenium and zinc are antioxidants and some of their responsibilities include helping to heal wounds, helping the skeletal system develop properly, and protecting cell membranes. Chromium helps keep arteries clear.
The minerals the body needs are divided into two categories. These two categories are: Major minerals and Trace Minerals. The difference between the categories mainly has to do with the amounts the body requires. The body must have a minimum of 100 milligrams per day to carry out the bodily functions associated with the Major minerals. In the case of Trace minerals, on a per day basis, less than 100 milligrams are required.
The 7 Major Minerals are: Calcium, Phosphorus, Magnesium, Sodium, Potassium, Sulfur, and Chloride
The Trace Minerals include: Chromium, Copper, Fluoride, Iodine, Iron, Manganese, Molybdenum, Selenium, and Zinc
Interestingly, minerals come from the ground that covers the Earth. We don't eat dirt and rocks, yet we get our minerals from the foods we eat. How can this be? Minerals primarily make their way into our bodies by way of the foods that grow from the ground and the animals that survive off the land. Fruits, vegetables, lean meats, poultry, dairy products, grains, legumes – these and others are the primary sources of the minerals our bodies need to survive.
What's also interesting is that individuals who eat a lot of processed foods or who fail to consume a nutritionally-balanced diet often suffer from diseases that have been directly attributed to vitamin- and mineral-related deficiencies.
Much controversy surrounds the subject of mineral supplementation. Ideally, people should strive to meet their daily mineral requirements from food because, as is the case with some vitamins, excessive amounts of some minerals inside the body can have a toxic effect.
Minerals are used for creating automobiles, building, pots, pans and many other durable products. But most importantly for humans, minerals are needed to build and maintain strong bodies capable of functioning as designed!
