Lydia Joy discusses why minerals are so important to the overall workings of the body.

16- Mineral Balancing with Lydia Joy

If you go to see your doctor, you will most likely hear them say that you should be taking a calcium supplement, or your fish oil, or avoid salt, but is this advice true for all people? When it comes to minerals, there is so much more information that goes into a protocol than just taking one pill to supplement all minerals. The amount of individual minerals is important, but also the ratio of various minerals to each other is just as important if you are working on your mineral balancing.

Minerals need specific co-factors in order to be balanced properly, which can make mineral balancing a bit of work to find the proper protocol. Minerals can determine the functionality of many systems in the body, such as your thyroid or even your adrenal glands. All this can be learned in this episode of Mineral Balancing with Lydia Joy!
