The Tibetans in Western China,
the Hunzas in Eastern Pakistan, the Georgians in Western Russia,
the Armenians, the Abkhazians and the Azerbaijanis, the Vilcabamba
in Ecuador, and the Titicaca in Peru routinely live to be a 120 or
even 140 years old, according to Nobel Prize nominee Dr. Joel
Wallach. What is more, these people don’t live in nursing
homes; they live full, productive and enjoyable lives.
The reason for their longevity
is that they inhabit high altitude areas where the soil contains
abundant amounts of montmorillonite clay deposits, a mixture of
minerals from mountains and ancient oceanic sediment consisting of
seaweed, algae and other calciferous marine life that are believed
to have been brought to the surface by volcanic activity and
transported to a deposit by precipitation.
Thanks to the
montmorillonite, which soil experts value as
an exceptionally good agricultural enhancement, their crops taste
better, grow faster, and are more resistant to diseases. The
balance of natural colloidal minerals, including the essential
trace minerals present in montmorillonite are easy to assimilate
and enhance the production of enzymes in all living organisms.
Dr. Edward Howell, the
father of modern enzyme research, proposes that enzyme deficiency
is a significant cause of premature aging and the development of
numerous degenerative diseases.
Similarly, plants grown on impoverished
soil, deficient of minerals and nutrients, are
more vulnerable to damage from insects and diseases and produce
little more than malnourished bodies. Dr. D.W. Cavanaugh of
Cornell University, writes: “There is only one major disease and
that is malnutrition.“
Chemical fertilizers gained a
stronghold in American agriculture after it was
discovered at the turn of the century that plants fed with the
scientific trinity NPK (nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium) could
survive and look fairly good.
However, 40 or more years later,
concerned ecologists and agriculturists were able to
prove that chemical fertilizers that are toxic and the lack of
proper natural nutrients in the soil caused plant vulnerability to
fungus and insects, leading to more crop loss and soil depletion.
For optimum health the
human body requires more than 70 minerals, Dr. Jensen, the author
of the book “Empty Harvest” and other authorities on the subject
agree that it would be fairly easy to put these desperately needed
minerals back into our soil.
Colloidal soil can actually boost the content of vitamins, minerals and enzymes in plants, thus benefiting every entity from the plants themselves, to animals and people.
