Natural Health and Wellness
Vital wellness – the goal of this natural health and wellness website is to make people aware of natural health alternatives to drugs (prescription and over the counter). To assist in creating a healthy lifestyle using natural alternatives, stress relief and keeping closer to your body’s natural design. Our philosophy is – we only need to provide the body with what it requires and it will perform as it was divinely designed. We cannot improve upon it’s design. Vital wellness can be attained using this wellness resource site.
Why aren’t most people healthy?
Why does anyone need prescription drugs? Are people suffering from drug deficiencies? How did mankind get by without them for thousands of years? Do you know the majority of drugs are based on natural substances? Do you think man can out do God when it comes to providing healing solutions? Why are there hundreds if not thousands of “conditions” “diseases” and “afflictions”? Why are more and more people suffering from these “dis-eases”. Why are these diseases and conditions not being addressed by modern medicine? It is the result of the complete lack of nutrition in the majority of foods we eat, the toxic chemicals we are exposed to.
How I became interested in natural health and wellness
My father died at the age of 37 of a brain aneurysm. I suffered for many years from excruciating headaches and was looking for answers (I was extremely concerned). I came across what I believe was a probable nutritional factor for my father’s aneurysm. In the 1930’s, turkeys were dying prematurely at a rate of 50 percent from aneurysms. Because farming was the major industry, the government went on an all out mission to solve this problem. They discovered a copper deficiency in the diet of turkeys. Just one trace mineral requirement in their diet. From that point forward, they added copper to the turkey feed. SIMPLE SOLUTION – the correlation to human aneurysms was never made! (or released to the public) Obviously this is far from scientific proof, but this observation should open your eyes to the relationship of nutrition to health and wellness.
At the same time of the turkey study, it was stated as a known fact that America’s farmland soil was depleted of essential minerals for human health. The farming methods used exhausted the mineral content of the soil, so farmers began adding N,P,K to the soil. Nitrogen, Potassium and Phosphorus. While these 3 nutrients will make plants grow, the human required minerals are still missing! If the soil is depleted, where do we get the required minerals for health? Supplementation or organically growing your own fruits and vegetables and grazing crops while adding all the required minerals back into the soil in the amounts required and bio-actively available to the crops (very difficult and expensive) are the only ways. Do you think the soil is better today than it was back in 1936? Besides the lack of minerals, living micro-organisms and fulvic acids – the soil has been polluted from the air, chemical fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides and dumping!
Modern day mega farms are still only adding N, P & K to the soil (and pesticides and herbicides). The soil now is far worse off than it was back in 1936. Only organic farmers are concerned with the condition and health of the soil. To naturally treat or restore 1000 acres of topsoil would be a daunting task to say the least for a mega-farm. A side benefit of the health conscious organic craze is the family farmer can compete once again, at least in the organic market if they choose.
Senate Document No. 264, 1936
Senator Duncan Fletcher, Democrat of Florida, asked that this article be put into the Congressional Record. This senate document entry is based on the work of Dr. Charles Northen and specifically an article from Cosmopolitan Magazine back in 1936. The following is the beginning of the article about Dr. Northen written by journalist Rex Beach:
Modern Miracle Men
DR. Charles Northen, Who Builds Health from the Ground Up
“This quiet, unballyhooed pioneer and genius in the field of nutrition, demonstrates that countless human ills stem from the fact that impoverished soil of America no longer provides plant foods with the mineral elements essential to human nourishment and Health! To overcome this alarming condition, he doctors sick soils and, by seeming miracles, raises truly healthy and health-giving fruits and vegetables.”
By Rex Beach
Do you know that most of us today are suffering from certain dangerous diet deficiencies which cannot be remedied until the depleted soils from which our foods come are brought into proper mineral balance! The alarming fact is that foods – fruits and vegetables and grains – now being raised on millions of acres of land that no longer contains enough of certain needed minerals, are starving us – no matter how much of them we eat!
This talk about minerals is novel and quite startling. In fact, a realization of the importance of minerals in food is so new that the textbooks on nutritional dietetics contain very little about it. Nevertheless, it is something that concerns all of us, and the further we delve into it the more startling it becomes.

I don’t know about you, but this seems way ahead of what modern doctors are taught as far as nutrition. If you can’t cut, radiate or drug the condition, it isn’t taught. Why do heart attack victims in the emergency room receive intervenous magnesium? Must be pretty important to heart health you think? Why aren’t we taught these things from our health providers? Must not be good for business, after all, this is disease management. The money stops if we are cured, especially if the cure is not an overpriced pharmaceutical drug – where’s the profit? (ok, just a personal opinion rant there – sorry)
