“According to Ayurveda [Indian Traditional Medicine: ‘‘ayus’’ meaning ‘‘life” and ‘‘veda’’ meaning ‘‘knowledge”], all objects in the universe including the human body are composed of five basic elements...earth, water, fire, air, and vacuum (ether)...It is believed that illness and disease result from an imbalance in the five elements…defines 32 causes of disease resulting in imbalance. Among them are pathogens such as parasites [eg Krimi, worm infestation]…The most important category is prajnaparadha or intellectual insufficiency” Leung’s encyclopedia of common natural ingredients used in food, drugs, and cosmetics by Ikhlas A. Khan and Ehab A. Abourashed (3rd ed. Pub. 2010).

The metals used in the Ayurvedic system of medicine include gold, silver [L argentum], copper, mercury, tin, lead, iron and zinc [nb. caveats on dosage and preparation purity]. But what about naturally occurring sources, of these particular trace elements, in our food? We have already researched EATRIGHT® food products for iron, zinc and even copper recommended daily allowances [c/- minimum lower limits, upper tolerable intake levels and PTD (probable toxic dosages)]. But what about other minerals, potentially present in parts-per-million (ppm) dosages, to combat worm infestations and other diseases (rather than added “edible gold” [food additive E 175] [4], “edible silver” [E 174], gold salt compounds, colloidal suspensions, nanoparticle isolates etc)?
