Only recently has the role of trace elements been appreciated. Trace minerals do not exist by themselves but in relationship to one another. Too much of one trace mineral can lead to imbalances in others resulting in disease, rather than the absence of disease. Mineral deficiencies and imbalances are known to affect and be involved in disorders of the cardiovascular system, gastrointestinal, muscular, skeletal, neurological, immune and endocrine systems. This has led to even more confusion, since minerals are interrelated with each other, as well as being linked with the metabolism of proteins, carbohydrates, fats, and of course, vitamins. However, it is obvious when studying the relationship of minerals to human health that keeping the level of minerals in balance in every tissue, fluid, cell, and organ in the human body may be a key to maintaining overall human health, which includes cancer, disease prevention, and an anti-viral prevention (which may include the coronavirus...I wouldn't rule it out!).

It is unfortunate, that the Earth’s soil has been depleted of the essential trace minerals we need to maintain a healthy lifestyle and; therefore, we must find a way to consume these trace minerals.

In my previous articles about trace minerals, I’ve mentioned a number of them and what role they play in maintaining overall health. I haven’t finished discussing this topic and since there are so many of them, one can easily get lost in figuring out what does what. I know I have!

Therefore, I decided to put all of my articles, some posted, some not posted, into an e-book. After looking over the book, it was too confusing and not any different than posting articles about trace minerals. So, I gave it a lot of thought and decided to add an index at the back of the book. The index lists the most common health problems, so that the reader can easily find the trace mineral(s) known in treating or preventing it. In other words, I’ve made the e-book, user-friendly.

Also, this e-book container the following disclaimer:
“I am an avid reader with a craving for learning about life itself, especially when concerns health, happiness, outer and inner beauty. I am not a medical professional. I am just someone having a need to share what I’ve learned and discovered.”

Yes, I am indeed, an avid reader. Since I couldn’t find anything online about ALL of the trace minerals and how they might improve one’s health, I had to spend time at the library doing my research to create my e-book.
If one were to search for information about all 74 trace minerals online, the most common ones can be found, such as potassium, magnesium, calcium, etc. I know my e-book is as complete as it gets, except for those micro-trace minerals researchers are still studying and those are stated in the book.

Before submitting this e-book for publication, I had my uncle, Joseph Warren Brown, to proofread the book. To honor his assistance, I added his name with mine, as an author.
