One of the most fascinating scientific topics, and one of the most important for advanced nutritional balancing, is the possibility that living organisms can change one element into another element.  This is called biological transmutation of the elements.


Particle accelerators. In order to change one element into another, scientists usually must subject the element to very high pressure, as occurs in a particle accelerator.  In these gigantic machines, atomic nuclei are accelerated to high speeds, and then they are smashed into other atoms.  This causes a proton to be removed from the target atom, changing the element into another element.  It is very costly and difficult to do.

Radioactive transmutation. Transmutation of elements also occurs naturally in radioactive elements such as uranium, plutonium and others.  Here the atomic nuclei are somewhat unstable.  Over time, the nucleus of these elements degrades and becomes a smaller element.  This is a very dangerous type of transmutation because the ionizing radiation the radioactive elements emit is very harmful to human tissues.

Biological transmutation is thus a third way of changing one element into another.  It is unique because it occurs at low temperature and low pressure, and is not harmful to living tissue.


Biological transmutation is highly controversial, and is not accepted as true by the medical and scientific communities at this time.  I did not write about it for years because I did not want to alienate mainstream scientists and doctors.

I am doing so now because it is such an important topic.  However, I do not recommend telling your doctor or any scientifically trained person that you believe in biological transmutation of the elements, as the doctor is likely to ignore everything else you say.


Two simple experiments that Dr. Kervran suggests to test the idea of biological transmutation are:

1. Female chickens eat very little calcium, in general.  Yet they produce a rather large egg shell made of calcium carbonate, mainly, each day of their adult life.  One can measure the calcium “input” that a chicken eats, and then measure the calcium “output” in the eggshell,

2. Seeds transmute elements when they sprout.  One can measure the mineral content of an unsprouted seed.  Then one can measure the mineral content of seeds of the same species after they have been sprouted in pure distilled water.  The mineral content will shift.


If you read Dr. Kervran’s book, you will learn that among the most important transmutations are sodium to potassium and vice versa, calcium to potassium and vice versa, sodium to magnesium and vice versa, and more.

Dr. Kervran explains how our hormones seem to regulate these transmutations.  Dr. Paul Eck read this material and realized it helped explain why these ratios can be used on a hair mineral analysis to give us an idea of the state of the adrenal glands, the thyroid gland, and others.  That is one of the connections to nutritional balancing science.

A second connection of this idea to nutritional balancing is that we find that nutritional balancing will remineralize a body or the soil, and we do not have to give that body all the minerals it needs.  If it has certain minerals, in the right form, then it seems to make or absorb the others.  This is a fascinating fact, and hard to explain any other way than by some process of transmutation of the elements.

There are other connections with nutritional balancing, but they are more advanced and have to do with what I call on this website mental or spiritual evolution and development of a human being.

To learn more about biological transmutation, one must read Biological Transmutations, by the French scientist, Louis Kervran.  This 20th century scientist delved into the mystery of biological transmutation more than any other of which I am aware.  I highly recommend this book for everyone, as it is not difficult reading and is directly related to nutritional balancing science.
