Basic Health

Your body is made up of cells, some 75 trillion (75,000,000,000) of them. A cell is a cell regardless of it's function in your body. These cells are constantly being replaced—new cells replace worn or damaged cells. Red blood cells are replaced at a rate of 100 million every minute. Here are some others: (image Link)

That accounts for the need for a lot of building materials and energy.

We become chronically ill when we can't replace the worn out cells with new, healthy cells that work.

To build these new cells we need to ingest the resources necessary to build, energize, and maintain healthy cells. A lack of any of the essential nutients results unhealthy cells that that don't work and therefore contribute to illness rather than our well-being.

It's been determined that, in addition to oxygen and voltage (electrons), there are 90 essential (must be ingested) nutrients.

60 Minerals
Calcium, Magnesium, Phosphorus,  Potassium, Sodium, Chloride, Sulfur, Cobalt, Copper, Aluminum, Arsenic, Barium, Beryllium, Boron, Bromine, Carbon, Iodine, Iron, Manganese, Selenium, Zinc, Cerium, Cesium, Chromium, Dysprosium, Erbium, Europium, Gadolinium, Gallium, Germanium, Gold, Hafnium, Holmium, Hydrogen, Lanthanum, Lithium, Lutetium, Molybdenum, Neodymium, Nickel, Niobium, Nitrogen, Oxygen, Praseodymium, Rhenium, Rubidium, Samarium, Scandium, Silica, Silver, Strontium, Tantalum, Terbium, Thulium, Tin, Titanium, Vanadium, Ytterbium, Yttrium, Zirconium

2-3 Essential Fatty Acids
Omega 3, Omega 6, Omega 9

16 Vitamins
Vitamin A, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B5, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Vitamin C, Vitamin D3, Vitamin K2, Biotin, Choline, Flavonoids (Bioflavonoids), Folic Acid, Inositol

12 Amino Acids
Valine, Lysine, Threonine, Leucine, Isoleucine, Tryptophan, Phenylalanine, Methionine, Histidine, Arginine, Taurine, Tyrosine

As a matter of interest, there are no pharmaceuticals on this list. Their chemicals are toxic, designed to poison various biological processes to treat a symptom. Healing occurs when healthy cells replace unhealthy cells.

We cannot be healthy without ingesting these essential nutrients via food we eat or by supplementation, ideally, without adding toxins in the process.

p.s. Your doctor is probably not aware of this, having been taught that germs, viruses, and fungi cause disease when, in reality, they attack weak or sick cells—as do most predators. You will need to take responsibility for for your health.
