Nutritional Balancing Science

"Everything on Earth is just a combination of the 103 chemical elements, or minerals.  Arranged in various ways - they make up our bodies, our food and water, trees, animals, air..."

Buckminster Fuller

person's greatest spiritual achievement may be to live her or his life - in this physical body - to its full potential. My practice and experiences have shown me that tending to our physical body is an important and integral part of who we are as spiritual beings.  This need is more pronounced today as we are exposed to possibly far more emotional, physical, dietary and environmental stressors than ever before.

With this in mind, Nutritional Balancing Science, with its use of Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis and the individually tailored programme of supplements and dietary and lifestyle recommendations, is an integral part of this healing practice.  The entire person is supported and guided through their particular ailments, conditions and desires to reaching a healthful and personally empowered state.  Treating an individual includes all aspects of their life - the physical, the emotional, the mental and the spiritual.  Each of these has an effect on a person's overall health and with a Nutritional Balancing Programme, all these areas are provided with the support and nutrients required to enable optimal functioning and presence in this life.  And, as science is rapidly determining, even the physical is not really physical.  So with this awareness in mind, we  approach the art of tending to the whole person in a conscious and empowering way.

Nutritional Balancing means different things to different people.  At a basic level, its meaning in all instances has to do with providing the body with the nutrients it requires, in balanced ratios, in order to enable its optimal functioning.  And interestingly, although science, both contemporary and ancient, tell us that food is medicine, and that our health depends on what we eat and how nutritionally balanced our body is, many people still seem to find it difficult, if not inconceivable, to believe that something so basic, can be so great a determiner in our health.  Nutritional Balancing Science goes even deeper into the subject of balancing our body chemistry with the purpose of providing the individual with optimal energy to live her or his life to its full potential.  It is based on the work of Dr Paul C Eck and Dr Lawrence Wilson.


What is Nutritional Balancing Science?

A total healing system, Nutritional Balancing Science includes elements of Western medical science as well as many principles of Eastern healing sciences.  It makes use of modern physics principles and modern engineering principles including General Systems Theory.  It is a functional and restorative approach to healing, and its ultimate goal it to provide the individual with an energetically strong and stable life force.

There is a huge difference in how we experience ourselves and our life in this world depending on our energy level.  When we have energy, being ourself comes naturally.  This includes our physical, emotional and spiritual self. People with high energy levels abound with good health, vitality and passion for life.  When a person's energy levels are low, she or he may feel depressed, have poor self-esteem and be lacking in excitement and vitality. Even our ability to feel and demonstrate love is affected by our energy levels.

In the world today, it is uncommon to find an individual who is truly nourished.   Most people are exposed to constant stress, be it environmental, dietary, emotional or chemical. We are bombarded with chemicals and toxins, heavy metal pollution and contamination.  The soil and all produce grown on it are both depleted of essential nutrients, large parts of the globe do not have food and clean water, while our whole understanding of nutrition is somewhat askew.   Poor diet, chronic stress, microbes, toxins, and allergens, all wash over our DNA and cause changes in our gene expression, turning off or on different genes and messages that affect our metabolism.  When under stress, the body does not detoxify effectively.  If the stress continues for any length of time, the toxins in the body start building up. Unless the body is brought back into balance and begins to eliminate these toxins, they start to interfere with its functioning, and soon a diseased state occurs.

Nutritional Balancing - The Foundation of Everything

Only a few "ingredients" are really needed to make us healthy, and they are: real, whole, fresh food, nutrients (vitamins and minerals), water, air, light, sleep, movement, love, connection, meaning and purpose.  When our life energy is depleted, it is difficult to feel, perceive and create the love, connectedness, meaning and purpose we need to have a fulfilling life.  The amazing fact is that virtually every health area we are looking to support can be improved, maintained or enhanced with the power of nutritional medicine.   When we remove the bad stuff, and replace it with the good stuff, the body knows what to do and it then creates health on its own.

The efficiency of our being is based on our body's ability to produce energy.  We forget that to even have a thought requires energy expansion.   Nor do we stop to wonder, 'where does the raw material for that energy production come from?' It is this process of giving the body what it needs, and removing that which causes it dis-ease that Nutritional Balancing addresses and facilitates.

The Science of Nutritional Balancing was founded by Dr Paul Eck (1925-1996), an exceptional doctor and avid researcher, who dedicated most of his adult life to researching the biochemical physiology of the human organism.

Dr Eck stumbled upon the new assessment method of hair tissue mineral analysis in the early 1970′s and, where others saw it mainly as a way to detect toxic metals, Dr Eck applied to this finding all of his knowledge of the Stress Theory of Disease, Metabolic Typing, Mineral Bio-availability and much more.

Through the use of Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis, with its resultant reading of the main minerals and heavy metals present in an individual's tissues, Dr Eck formulated a unique model of the optimal equilibrium of the human mineral system.  On this basis, he further developed a methodology with which it is possible to identify what is required to rebuild this same system and to restore the individual's health and vitality.

Since Dr Eck's passing, his work has been continued and expounded upon by his student, colleague and friend, Dr Lawrence Wilson, MD, who worked closely with Dr Eck for 14 years.  Dr Wilson's website at, is the ultimate authoritative portal on the sophisticated Science of Nutritional Balancing.

It is important to note that Nutritional Balancing does not focus on symptoms' removal but rather on restoring the body to a former state of health and beyond through a process of deep healing.  This profound process of healing involves detoxification, purification, complete nutritional rebuilding and a healing lifestyle that restore's the organism's health.


The Importance of Detoxification

When the body does not detoxify efficiently, it cannot function properly.  Toxins interfere with the communication between the various parts of the cells and nervous system, fogging the mind and numbing the senses.  They also dull and eventually destroy our ability to be open to higher frequencies, which, by virtue of their essence, can provide us with the healing we require in times of stress.

A Nutritional Balancing Programme fully supports the body to detoxify in a natural fashion.  The Programme's emphasis on remineralization of the tissues ensures that toxins, and in particular heavy metals, before and when being released from various sites, are efficiently replaced by the appropriate minerals, thereby preventing displacement or further absorption of the toxins.

What does a Nutritional Balancing Programme involve?

The major therapeutic modalities include:

  • Lifestyle: This is a key area as the correction of basic living habits is the single most important recommendation in nutritional balancing for most people.
  • Diet: Once an individual's oxidation rate is ascertained through the Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis, a diet suitable for that oxidation type is recommended and constitutes a primary healing modality and lifestyle aspect.
  • Nutrient Supplementation: A number of simple, targeted nutritional supplements are recommended and represent an important part of the balancing programme.  The recommended supplements are very specific to that individual and are based on the readings from Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis.  This is an important difference between this science and most other nutritional approaches. The supplements aim to balance the oxidation rate and the major mineral ratios, which, in turn, has an effect on the entire body and presented symptoms.
  • Detoxification - Sauna
  • Colon Therapy - Coffee Enemas
  • Meditation
  • Emotional and Physical Awareness


How does it work?

A Nutritional Balancing Programme works in several ways:

  • It provides the body, at cellular level, the essential nutrients for optimal energy production.
  • The programme balances the physical body's bio-chemistry and so provides optimal functioning at all levels.
  • It balances the mental and emotional bodies through bio-chemical processes on the basis that every mineral pattern has an equivalent emotion and/or thought, and every emotion and/or thought has an equivalent mineral pattern.
  • The procedures inherent in the programme facilitate and assist the body in detoxifying chemicals and heavy metals in a natural fashion as driven and prompted by the body's own intelligence.
  • The rebalancing and remineralizing of tissues in this manner "rewinds" the whole body person back to previous states.  If these states were stressful, the organism would have compensate in order to support survival at the cost of throwing the body's chemistry out of balance. These states are revisited briefly and the body is reset to a previous, more healthful state.
  • Adrenal burnout in particular is addressed through this programme.  A general system breakdown and precursor to many diseases, adrenal burnout is an increasingly common and serious health imbalance in the world today, affecting and debilitating both the young and elderly.  This programme directly assists in rebuilding the adrenal and thyroid glands, in particular, and the endocrine system as a whole.



Nutritional Balancing and Energy Healing

In my practice and experiences as a shaman and energy healing facilitator, I have found that when an individual embarks on a Nutritional Balancing programme, a programme based on Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis and specifically tailored to the requirements of that individual, the missing link to their presence in the physical body and sense of groundedness is provided - that stabilizing element is brought in, and the body begins to heal and rebuild itself.  This then enables the person to lead a healthy and creative life - a life in which she or he can open up to the expression and creative experience of their authentic self. And for those seeking spiritual awareness and experience, a properly nourished body is essential for the processing of higher frequencies, which can place significant stress on an unprepared physical body, requires a strong physical conduit.

A nutritionally strong and balanced body is a fundamentally grounded body, and as such it can process these higher frequencies without exposing the physical body to undue stress.  As such, it can also eliminate and detoxify chemical, physical, emotional and all types of toxins far more smoothly.

In order for us to effectively experience our true potential, at all levels of our being - a state yet to be experienced by most as at this time we are only beginning to have glimpses of what we are truly capable of, the physical body needs to be provided the nutrients and nourishment it requires.  In fact, it may be that it is to this physical level that all other levels are connected, and from which, all other levels can thrive.


Getting started on a Nutritional Balancing Programme

Getting started on a Nutritional Balancing Programme is easy.  Clients can expect to receive a report based on the results of their Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis within 3 weeks from submitting their hair sample.  Consultation is carried out via email and by phone, with regular updates and communication being an essential part of the programme.

A Nutritional Balancing Programme can be done on its own or as part of a Shamanic Healing and Therapy Programme, where when necessary, among other benefits, the clearing of imprints, experienced as deeply rooted stressors, and the retrieval of soul parts, can greatly assist the healing process.
