So far, I’ve written eight articles revealing information about trace minerals, and as I am researching and writing about each one, I realize how important they are and find it a crime against our humanity for the powers-that-be for keeping this information secretive, such as when it comes to inflammation, curcumin contains good amounts of minerals like calcium, iron, potassium, manganese, copper, zinc, and magnesium. Curcumin provides superior support for a healthy inflammation response. I’ve been taking CureMed, one soft gel every day, and with good results!

In this article, part nine, I will share information about the following minerals: Antimony (kills parasites), Arsenic (helps with the function of the nervous system), Molybdenum (necessary for the proper function of several body chemicals) and Strontium (involved in how the calcium in our body is utilized.)

The abundance of Antimony in the Earth’s crust is estimated at 0.2 to 0.5 parts per million, comparable to thallium at 0.5 parts per million and silver at 0.07 parts per million. Even though this element is not abundant, it is found in over 100 mineral species, and is a part of our body composition. Antimony is effective against blood flukes, kills parasites, and is a great skin conditioner.
When it comes to Antimony, a little can go a long way. Too much is considered lethal and what many of us do not know is that Antimony is kept under lock and key by industry professionals, since heroin junkies are known as a substitute for heroin.

Despite its reputation, Arsenic is necessary for good health. It is necessary for proper growth, development, and reproduction. In pregnancy, the Arsenic level goes up tenfold if the child is to be a boy. Without such a level, spontaneous abortion becomes the inevitable result. Pine needles crushed and steeped as a tea in boiling water deliver enough Arsenic to prevent miscarriage.

A combination of two natural toxins, Arsenic and bryostatin might be a powerful new treatment for certain kinds of leukemia, as expressed by a study published in the “Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.” Researchers at Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center found that Arsenic, long used to treat certain leukemias, activates the same cellular self-destruct mechanism as bryostatin—a toxin found in coral-like aquatic organisms called byrozoans which attach themselves to piers, boat hulls and rocky surfaces.

Arsenic is known to be effective against treatment-resistant acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL). It is a cancer of the blood and bone marrow characterized by unhealthy-white blood cells. APL is a subtype of acute myeloid leukemia, the most common form of adult leukemia.
Scientists didn’t fully understand how Arsenic actually kills cancer cells. The Johns Hopkins scientists used molecular studies to discover that Arsenic activates NADPH oxidase, an oxygen-producing enzyme complex.

Arsenic is also necessary for the function of the nervous system. Arsenic occurs naturally in various organic forms in the environment. Mainly in soil, air, and water; in its natural state it is a part of the human body.

Molybdenum is the 54th most abundant element in the Earth's crust and the 25th most abundant element in the oceans, with an average of 10 parts per billion; it is the 42nd most abundant element in the Universe. It occurs in higher concentrations in the liver, kidneys, skin, bones, and in lower concentrations in the vertebrae. It is required for proper function of several chemicals in the body. Some of these chemicals have the very important job of allowing the body to process the iron and nitrogen in our diets. Molybdenum is also present within human tooth enamel and may help prevent its decay. The deficiency of this trace mineral can cause intellectual disability, seizures, severe muscle spasms, and lens dislocation.

Strontium has been found to be involved in the utilization of calcium in the body. It has promoting action on calcium uptake into bone at moderate dietary Strontium levels, but only a trace amount in needed in one’s diet, since too much can cause rickets.
