Boron is an important trace mineral that has largely been ignored for health maintenance and freedom from disease. This is unfortunate, as it is extremely important and as a health supplement, can have profoundly beneficial effects.
Health Conditions Improved Naturally with Boron:
- Sex Hormones
- Candida Albicans
- Lupus Erythematosis
A Natural Remedy for Arthritis and Aging
While Boron is an effective treatment for 95% or more in the relief of arthritis (provided the joint has not completely deteriorated) its range of action extends beyond that. It works very well in alleviating arthritis, partly due to its crucial role of calcium integration into the cartilage and bone. This is important for all of us as we age, even if we do not have arthritis. Aging is partly associated with weakening of the bones as they become increasingly porous – adequate Boron can prevent this aging effect.
Typical usage times to alleviate Arthritis with Boron Supplement
It has been found that generally, those under 60 years old get better in the first month, those in their sixties in the second month, and those in their 70’s and 80’s generally get better after 3 months of Boron supplementation.
Boron and Animals
Animals with arthritis are usually cured with Boron. As with humans the level of boron in the soil relates to the degree of arthritis in animals e.g. a high proportion of sheep with arthritis, indicate that the pasture land is deficient in Boron. Dogs and Horses are among the animals with arthritis that have been found to benefit from supplemental boron.
Menopausal Symptoms and Sex Hormones
Boron is essential for oestrogen production, and can have a rapid effect in helping menopausal women. Sex drive may return within just a few days sometimes after it has been absent for years, and a rapid reduction in hot flushes. Minerals and trace-elements get to the ‘bottom of things’ so to speak, they are often the missing link and can be extremely effective. Boron raises the level of natural sex hormones in the body, and so would eliminate the need for HRT or Hormone replacement therapy states Dr. Newnham. Zinc is also important for sex hormones for both sexes.
Boron, Allergies and Parasites
Because Boron will overcome the symptoms of 95% of arthritis including rheumatoid arthritis, Dr. Newman speculates that allergies, that are involved especially with Rheumatiod arthritis, are probably being reduced by Boron.
Prof. Wyburn-Mason identified certain amoebae that parasitized the joints of rheumatoid arthritis sufferers. Dr. Rex e. Newman states that Boron can control these parasites. He discusses the role of infection and parasites further in his book Beating Arthritis & Beating osteoporosis. Rheumatoid arthritis sufferers often experience the ‘Herxheimer’ reaction for a week or so after starting boron, this causes a temporary worsening of the arthritis. This is due to die – off from the parasites, that enter into the blood prior to elimination by the white blood cells.
Boron and Candida Infection
Boron can help overcome candida albicans according to Dr. Newman, but other measures are also needed such as pro-biotics e.g Primebiotic, immune rebuilder, Zell-Oxygen and anti-fungals such as Colloidal Silver or Olive Leaf Extract
More Health Conditions
Boron may justifiably be understood as a general health enhancer, and we do not yet know it’s full range of influence. On page 69 of Beating Arthritis & Beating Osteoporosis there is an account of a retired lady with congestive heart failure and arthritis. After only 2 months on the Boron, both her arthritis and her congestive heart failure where considerably improved. Dr Rex Newham heard of a case of hay fever that was greatly improved with Boron. This is understandable if we consider that the improvement in calcium metabolism alone, for which much of Boron’s action is centred on, will tend to calm the system, tending to reduce allergies and the auto-immune reactions involved in many health conditions, not just Arthritis. Boron will help to incorporate all the other minerals into the bones reports Dr. Newman, so it is not unreasonable to assume that Boron may also help with the correct cellular uptake of minerals and trace elements into the cells. All types of arthritis may be helped by Boron and also systemic Lupus Erythematosis.
Boron and Fluoride
Fluoride in the form added to tap water and toothpaste is, I believe, a threat to health as evidenced by much research1 that has been totally ignored by those that want to make money out of finding a way to dispose of the toxic waste, that is too toxic to dump elsewhere, and the Government cronies that back them. Fluoride in sea water is in a form and combination with all the other minerals and trace elements that renders it non-toxic. There is good evidence that in Andra Pradesh India people can develop quadriplegia (when all four limbs are not working well as the result of skeletal fluorosis where 1.35 ppm fluoride was present in the water. Boron will inactivate fluoride in the body forming a harmless compound, according to Dr. Rex e. Newman.
To treat arthritis and other deficiency symptoms that may be linked to other health conditions, Dr. Rex Newman recommends 10 mgs. Some populations have as much as 30 mg a day in their diet will only good effects, in most western countries the soils are grossly deficient.
