“Bodies are cleansed: The mind is purified by truth.” Horace Mann

The human body is a highly complex, active, and systematic ecosystem that comprises 1013 of human cells, holds the similar number of bacteria found mostly in the gut (Sender et al., 2016), and 1014 are the protozoan, bacterial, and fungal cells representing thousands of microbial species termed as normal flora (Alberts et al., 2002). The normal flora is found and limited to distinct areas of the human body, such as the mouth, large intestine, skin, and reproductive organs. The wide range of bacteria and viruses do not pose a negative effect, some are beneficial, and a fraction impose detrimental effects on human health (Balloux and van Dorp, 2017).

A pathogen is an organism that infects its host and causes sickness. The chronicity of the symptoms of disease are known as virulence. Pathogens are taxonomically composed of bacteria, viruses, unicellular, and multicellular eukaryotes that affect every living organism. The normal microbial species and pathogens are distinct. Pathogens infiltrate the host through highly specific mechanisms in moving through barriers cellularly and chemically, and producing definite responses from its host to survive and reproduce. Facultative pathogens can infiltrate one of more hosts that can be exploited for reproduction. These are composed of environmental fungi and bacteria that often induce infection, including several hospital-acquired bacteria that have antimicrobial resistance. Obligate pathogens need a host for their complete life cycle, such as all viruses depend on cellular mechanisms of the host for reproduction; among bacteria, like the causal agents of syphilis and tuberculosis; in protozoans, like malaria-causing pathogens, and macro parasites (Balloux and van Dorp, 2017).

Specifically, human pathogens incite diseases on humans. A human pathogen is estimated as one in a billion of the microbial species, and about 1400 have been characterized (Balloux and van Dorp, 2017). Human pathogens are classified as bacterial, fungal, viral, and parasitic (Honko, 2021). Humans are infected with viruses daily, with the rarest viral infection becoming symptomatic. The normal flora of the human body is only capable of inciting an illness if the immune system is weakened or gaining access to a sterile part of the body (Alberts, 2002).

The human body is a desirable host for pathogens because of its favorable temperature, nutrient-rich and moist environment, distinct redox mechanisms, and its capability to renew through cell division (Alberts et al., 2002, Feichtmayer et al., 2017) that are rarely complete in the environment.

Dr. Renato Paragas, the WATERDOK of the Philippines, mentioned in his article entitled “Prevention Is Better Than Cure” that “Magnesium is nothing short of a miracle mineral in its healing effect on a wide range of diseases, as well as in its ability to rejuvenate the aging body. Many are also not aware that magnesium, in the form of magnesium chloride, is an impressive infection fighter.” He further provided another evidence of how Magnesium is a miracle mineral from Dr. Charles Norman Shealy, author of “Holy Water, Sacred Oil”. He elaborated, “When used correctly, magnesium is the best weapon we have to defend the body, not only from infectious diseases of both viral and bacterial origin but also from the chemical deluge of toxic chemicals that are invading our bodies every day. We have a heavyweight, non-toxic medicine we can use without a prescription.” All of the infections stated above, including the pre-existing illnesses, can be prevented with the right knowledge on how to take care of your body naturally.

IONIQUE® Mineral Drops contains 72 macro and trace minerals, with Magnesium being the main ingredient, that our cells need in order to function best and provide the necessary supplement to boost our immune system. It is also the minerals that we have to supply in our systems in order to reach the true meaning of “wholesome health”.

With these alarming viruses and parasites infecting millions of lives, there is one lesson that we should always remember: strengthening our immune system.

We have to be reminded that our cells work 24/7, without rest, in order for our brains to think accordingly, our hearts to beat continuously, our muscles and bones to give support directly and provide locomotion, our senses to be at their sharpest use, and all of our 11 internal systems to work accurately and tirelessly. If we do not feed the right kind of foodwhich should contain all the essential nutrients namely carbohydrates, protein, fats, vitamins, minerals and water-and drink the only acceptable beverage to mankind, then we are saying goodbye to our organs slowly.

Alexis Carrel, M.D., Nobel Prize Winner in Physiology (Medicine) in 1912, declared that “The cell is immortal. It is the fluid in which it floats that degenerate. Renew this fluid at regular intervals, give the cells what they require for nutrition and the pulsation of life will go on forever.”

Dr. Paragas further emphasized the use of IONIQUE® Mineral Drops in our immune system. “With the correct intake of purified drinking water supplemented with magnesium chloride (best source being IONIQUE® Mineral Drops), the immune system can be boosted remarkably and the body can have a better capability to fight against various infections and probably against SARS CoV 2 as well. Prevention is better than cure!”

May your immune system be always boosted with IONIQUE® Concentrated Mineral Drops and water, because your 30 trillion cells are counting on you.

"Worship the LORD your God, and his blessing will be on your food and water. I will take away sickness from among you…" Exodus 23:25


Investing on your natural remedy

Signifies that you are in great wealth.

He is counting on you;

Eat the food that cleanses your soul;

Aim to be ail-free;

Loose the bad habits;

Take-away all the toxins;

Hear His voice resonates inside you.
