Four Nutritional Guidelines

1. That which is beneficial, is beneficial, and does not suddenly turn toxic at differing doses.

2. That which is toxic is toxic, and does not suddenly turn beneficial at differing doses.

3. There is a synergy in doing many beneficial things at once.

4. There is a toxic synergy too, where many toxins become extra harmful when combined.

Example. Iodine is beneficial. It does not trun toxic at higher doses. It may mobilize more than one toxin, to create toxic symptoms temporatily, but once the toxic storm is past, its past. Iodine itself does not become or turn toxic. Same with copper. Same with vitamin c. Etc.

Fluoride is toxic. It is a neurotoxin. It does not suddenly transform to become beneficial to the bones at lower doses. Fluoride causes teeth pitting and skeletal fluorosis, so it is toxic to the bones. Always. At any level.

Vitamins and vital minerals are all vital. They are vital because essential body processes cannot happen without them. A deficiency is therefore as dangerous as a toxin that shuts down body processes. Since they are all vital, they are all needed, all of them. Not a third of them. Not half of them. All of them. There is no getting super healthy with half the vital processes in your body well supplied, you need them all well supplied.

Some nutrients in excess can block the absorption of other nutrients and cause nutritional deficiencies. I have read that 130mg of zinc (and the upper limit of zinc ranges from 50 to 150 mg) can cause copper deficiency even if someone is taking 2mg of copper, which is over 100% more than the general US RDA for copper of 0.9mg. This supports that it is not the zinc becoming toxic, but that it is causing a toxic like effect from blocking copper, and it supports that the minerals must be taken together, and all of them, to get the synergistic beneficial effects.

Mercury and aluminum have been studied in combination. They become 100 times more toxic when combined. A dose that is 1/100th of the toxic dose kills when combined with each other. We all get some exposure of every toxin. Mercury is released from fillings. It’s in the air from burning coal. It’s in fish. And it’s in vaccines, the multi dose flu shot. Aluminum is in vaccines. And antacids. And foods. Fluoride is not just in tap water. It’s in chicken, dried fruits, black tea. We all get exposed to these toxins, and hundreds more complex toxic molecules. All of these toxins lower our stores of the vital minerals.

We all need to take enough vital minerals to not only serve our bodies needs, but also to detoxify from our increasingly toxic world.


  1. I think the reason why cold intolerance happens on iodine is depletion of B5, and copper. As we know, the iodine doctors say to take b2 and b3. But b vitamins work best in combination, otherwise taking just some b vitamins depletes other b vitamins. B5, pantothenic acid, is kown for improving cold tolerance. I learned that one 32 years ago when I was 18, ski racing. It is less well known that iodine can deplete copper. Copper is lost in the sweat, and iodine can increase sweating, so that is one mechanism of action on how iodine can deplete copper. How does copper increase cold tolerance? Copper boosts the adrenals. The adrenals give you energy. Iodine also is said to stimulate the adrenals, perhaps overstimulating them, leaving them depleted of nutrients needed to function correctly. B5 is also said to be great for the adrenals. The iodine doctors are good, but only human. And I certainly do not know everything, but I try to keep learning.
