Active Elements - Mineral therapy
BUY Active Elements now
Linda encourages all clients to take the online Active Elements® assessment - click here to provide indications of health and well being. From this assessment Linda can recommend your Active elements Mineral formuals to support YOUR body - and we are all different!
The Active Elements® System is based upon the belief that many health issues stem from mineral element imbalances within the body. Minerals are required for most biochemcial reactions in the body including the uptake of vitamins and other nutrients from food.
Active Elements are prepared with the best quality ingredients from Europe and are sugar, gluten and lactose free and suitable for vegans. The unique formula incorporates the actual mineral and homepathic ingredients to give the formulas a real advatage in the way they work in our bodies.
These imbalances can occur for a variety of reasons:
Daily losses as aresult of normal metabolism
Growing, proceessing, transport and storage of our food
Chronic mental and physical stress
Poor nutrient absorption/digestive disorders
Genetic predispotion for nutrient imbalance
Sports and intense exercise
Acute or chronic illness
Often these imbalances remain undetected, the Active Elements® online Assessment System provides a simple, quick and non-invasive way to determine any mineral imbalances that may exist.
Science generally (and most practitioners too) only consider the role that the 'cation' plays in both health and disease, but with Active Elements® we believe that the action of the negatively charged element (the anion), is quite often, as important, or more important than that of the positively charged element (the cation).
We have also observed that special biochemical relationships exist between the various elements. Relationships that can be manipulated in ways that not only increase the therapy's effectiveness, but also reduce the number of elements needed and therefore the cost. Active Elements are safe to take with most medications and will enhance the uptake of any other supplements you may be prescribed.
Your personalised Active Elements mineral assessment is sent to you via email, free of charge, usually within 24 hours, giving you real time results.
As mineral element Imbalances in the soil affect the health of plants and animals, so too can Imbalances affect the health of us humans as well. We can also suffer imbalances without realising it, because the first signs of a mineral element Imbalance are vague and very rarely noticed. If attention is sought for these early symptoms, they are most times misdiagnosed and treated as something else. Orthodox medicine quite often treats every symptom as if it were an illness in its own right. This is why a person can be prescribed a whole collection of drugs (particularly evident with the elderly). These symptoms may well be the body's way of letting us know that there is something wrong and hopefully giving us the opportunity to prevent an illness from developing.
Prevention is always better than cure!
