Why Are We Subject To Mineral Element Imbalances?

Some identified reasons are

Physical and mental stress, increasing our requirements for nutrients

Poor diet

The way our food is grown

The way our food is stored and processed.

Our body may have difficulty in absorbing some minerals from our food

Even if absorbed, they may not be utilised properly

Drinking and smoking

A genetic predisposition for imbalances to exist or develop.

As mineral element imbalances in the soils affect the health of plants and animals, so too can imbalances affect the health of us humans as well. We can suffer imbalances without realising it because the first signs may be vague. These vague symptoms can be seen as signals, the body's way of letting us know that something's wrong. 

Minerals are the structural and biochemical base upon which everything else in your body is built.

Minerals can’t be created by your body - they can only be obtained from what you eat and drink.

Minerals are often overlooked when it comes to nutritional supplementation and yet they are essential for thousands of biochemical functions in the body.

Many health issues stem from mineral element imbalances and these imbalances can occur for a variety of reasons.

  • Daily losses as a result of normal metabolism.
  • Mental and physical stress.
  • Poor or restrictive dietary practices
  • Deficient soils and modern agricultural practices.
  • Food processing, transport and storage.
  • Pharmaceutical medications.

Active Elements Mineral Therapy

Therapy Background

Rebalance your minerals and get back on track to wellbeing.

The Active Elements® System is based upon the belief that many health issues stem from mineral element imbalances.

The Active Elements® formulas are a combination of low-dose and homoeopathically prepared minerals. The 12 minerals used in the Active Elements® formulas have been in constant use throughout the western world for many generations. It is this long history that makes this one of the few traditional therapies that has survived the test-of time. These minerals form part of what is generally referred to as Traditional Medicine. The Active Elements® concept has transformed this previously complicated and confusing therapy into one that is readily accessible to people who would not normally choose Complementary or Alternative Medicine. The principle that underpins the Active Elements® concept is that an imbalance of these minerals may impact adversely on the body’s natural state of wellbeing.

Taking Your Active Elements® Formulas

You should always follow the dose instructions on the label, or advice given to you by your health care professional. You should also read carefully any precautions or warnings on the label. it is important that the recommended doses and times be observed as closely as possible. Taking catch-up doses for doses that you may have forgotten is not recommended – it is better to get into a routine and stick to it. Chewing or swallowing is the advised way of taking the formulas. The chewing option is recommended because it brings the ingredients into contact with the lining of the mouth. Children must always chew the formulas, or they can be crushed and mixed in food or drink if taste is an issue.

Active Elements® Formulas and Your Lifestyle

Whilst your Active Elements® formulas may play an important part in regaining and/or maintaining your natural state of wellbeing, it is by no means the only factor that you should consider. Your health care practitioner may suggest changes with regard to other aspects of your lifestyle. You should apply any advice conscientiously and avoid slipping back into old habits. Prevention is always better than cure; particularly when you consider that most of the serious illnesses that afflict western societies can be avoided through improved lifestyle. Whilst the Active Elements® concept is focussed on restoring the body’s natural state of wellbeing, sometimes there can be reasons that preclude this objective being realised. Therefore a maintenance or prophylactic dose of the Active Elements® formulas may be recommended by your consultant to ensure benefits are maintained.

Combining Your Active Elements® with other medication

You must not stop taking any medically prescribed drugs, or combine Active Elements® formulas with any other medications, without first seeking advice from your health care professional. The low-dose minerals contained in the Active Elements® formulas are compatible with most drugs and/or conditions and therefore extremely unlikely to be of concern, but always check first. Always read the Active Elements® labels for any precautions or warnings.

Children, Babies & Pregnant Women: The low-dose minerals contained in the Active Elements® formulas are generally considered beneficial for children and pregnant, or breast feeding mothers. The labelled children’s dose of Active Elements® formulas varies between full adult dose and half dose, according to the formula. Children must always chew the formulas, or they can be crushed and mixed in food or drink if taste is an issue. Some of the Active Elements® formulas are not suitable for babies unless directed by your health care professional.

Active Elements Online Assessment

The online Active Elements Assessment system provides a simple way to select your Active Elements formulas. Active Elements online assessment questionnaire considers the relationships that exist between calcium, potassium, sodium, magnesium, phosphate, sulphate, chloride, iron, fluoride and silica, according to the information entered. 

This data is then mathematically modelled to predict the most likely imbalances. The algorithms that drive our computer modelling were developed, tested and refined from the decades of clinical observation.
