O type mixed& minerals (attn. Bob McF)

Hi Bob: I have been rereading some of the chapters that appeared from your book. I am again impressed by the clarity and thoroughness of your writing. I do seem
to fit in the Mixed O type but I have questions about minerals. There must be tremendous variability among mixed types. I have never had adverse effects that I
know of from the Mg I get in chelation therapy.
I have had four intracellular rbc analyses from an Ohio lab in the past year. They all showed below detect levels of Mo and Cr, and Mn was below detect twice and almost
more than 2 std. low on the other two. Is there any rbc data on minerals assays from Wiley or others? Over a year ago, I had atrial fibrillation and ended up in the ER. The Meridian Valley Lab mineral panel showed low Mg and Mn shortly after that. Naturally I am reluctant to
reduce Mg now. MVL only assayed Mg, Mn, Zn. Since then, probably due to the Mg added to chelation my Mg level has been in the normal range. The dysrhythmia stopped
for a while ( I also take 200 mg. COQ daily) but then was really bad all spring. When the more complete analyses showed multiple low minerals, I started taking ionic tonic
six weeks ago and the disrhythmis problem disappeared within a day or two and hasn't reoccured.
Does any of this make sense to you as to what I should be taking? Incidentally I never had any of the symptoms of an extreme HG except to feel inervated in very hot weather. Hope your book is finished soon. Peace, Martha

Martha,

If what you are doing works I'd stay with it.

As a Mixed metabolizer you would need more magnesium and be more capable of tolerating it than I would.

Unfortunately I think the intra-cellular mineral tests deliver only part of the message. People hear the first part 'I am deficient in this mineral' loud and clear and busily start taking supplements. The more subtle message is that they usually have damage to their intestinal tract which has compromised the absorbtion of these minerals (LGS). Until they address the leaky gut syndrome they haven't dealt with the REAL problem.

Having said all this, there is no doubt in my mind that different metabolic types would operate best with different 'mineral profiles'. However, one thing is for sure -- we need at minimum trace amounts of ALL those mineral found in the trace mineral formulations. This is one reason why you and so many others have responded in such immediate and dramatic fashion after taking a trace mineral supplement. It also explains why those that are already exhuberantly healthy, eating the proper diet would see little effect.

Bob

Thanks Bob: I had LGS for years and didn't know what it
was till reading this BB. I have been doing the pure foods
but not perfectly enough to get rid of candida--I eat the
noon meal in a retirement community and there are too many
sauces. Besides, I am allergic to milk products. Everything you say helps in some way. Thans again. Martha
