HUmineral’s Monthly Newsletter
What is mindfulness?
Mindfulness is a psychological process. It is paying attention purposely in the present moment, non-judgmentally. The practice of focusing complete attention to the experience (s) occurring in the present, on a moment by moment basis, without judgment, which one can develop through practiced meditation and through other training.
Mindful Meditation Practices – There are several method exercises designed to develop mindfulness meditation. Breathe, Body Scan and Sound meditation are a few we share in this Hu Health Share.
BREATH MINDFULNESS – Lay straight on the floor, in bed, sit in a straight-backed chair or sit on the floor using a cushion, close your eyes, breathe in and out several times – slowly – bringing your attention to either the sensations of breathing in and out of your nostrils or follow the movements of the abdomen when breathing in and out. In this mindful meditation practice, don’t try to control your breathing, simply be aware of your natural breathing rhythm. When engaged in this exercise, your mind will wander often and run off to other thoughts (kids, work, errands undone, car repair). When you notice this happening calmly, passively and in acceptance, take a few deeper in/out breaths in a non-judgmental way, return to focusing on your breath (in and out). If your mind starts to wander, reset yourself, slowly open and shut your mouth, slowly flex your feet and hands, left to right a couple times. Then redirect your breathing and your focus back to breathe and mindfulness.
Mindfulness Meditation should last 30 minutes a few times a week. If your are unable to commit to 30 minutes, allow yourself at least 15 minutes and use a timer as an aid.
BODY SCAN MINDFULNESS – This exercise helps develop a mindful awareness of your bodily sensations. Research suggests that this mindfulness practice can help reduce stress, improve well-being, and decrease tension, aches and pains in the body. Body-scan meditation attention is directed at various areas of the body; noting body sensations that happen in the present moment. Once in position, you will scan your body head to toe “feeling” sensations and relaxing the body along the way.
Body scan can be performed in several ways; lay down, sit, or another posture (preferably keeping one hand available to lay on the stomach along the way for checking in with yourself). Make sure your shoulders are pressed into your grounding source. Initially, laying flat is best, on the floor, a yoga mat or in a bed. Begin taking a long inward breath and slowly releasing. Then close your eyes and become mindful of every part of your body. Tap into YOU – how your head presses into the floor, the bed, the chair or back of a wall; how your bottom pulls into the floor/bed/mat. Be conscious of what that weight feels like. Wiggle toes and fingers slowly, in a left/right position as you set your position. If your are in a standing position, ground your feet into the floor/mat/carpet/sand. Feel the weight of your entire body pulling into your grounding point. Notice the sensations of the grounding points behind your head, under your feet, back, bottom, (sweat, coldness, vibrations, warmth, emotion, pressure). If it is your first time doing this type work you could experience tears/crying spell. It is fine. Take deep breathes along the way. You should feel relaxation forming and the mind start to quiet. You may feel heaviness or a feeling of lightness in the body, pulling you into your grounding point. Continue deep breaths, drawing in more oxygen, which energizes the body. As you slowly exhale, the goal is to experience more deep relaxation and “feel” your body.
The throat, jaw, hands, feet shoulders and top of head tend to tense. “Check in” as you are in process to be aware and focus on softening these points – roll yourself back into your pressed grounded position if necessary. Be aware of your body. When you are ready to end your session, take deep breaths and slowly open your eyes.
Body-scan mindfulness should last 30 minutes a few times a week. If your are unable to commit to 30 minutes, allow yourself at least 15-20 minutes and use a timer as an aid.
Breathe easier with natural healing properties found in eucalyptus and other essential oils. Relax by using oils with massage or add to a diffuser during mindful meditation.
SOUND MEDITATION MINDFULNESS – Enhances awareness of sounds and the areas of focus and clarity that is cultivated when practicing mindfulness meditation. It is often found in various Buddhist traditions including Zen and Vipassana.
One of the simplest, most direct ways to connect with the present moment and further cultivate awareness is to become mindful of our immediate space and the sounds around us. Intentional awareness of sound helps return us to present, stabilizes the mind and refines our sense of hearing and ability to listen. Listening today can be a real challenge for many.
To experience sound mindfulness, you need 5-15 minutes, settle into your space, sit with a cup of tea, lay in a quiet space, or soaking in a tub, quiet the mind and pay close attention to the sounds around you. Start to become aware of your breath, then shift your awareness to the sounds present in the moment, continue breathing. Without straining for or conjuring sounds, listen and let your ears fill with the sounds, near and far away – not allowing the mind to wander – you are listening. Be mindful of trying to listen for identification of or labeling of words, sounds, etc., and instead let all thoughts and judgments be non existent, allowing them to fade and focus on what sound is between the noise you hear. This is deep listening. If your mind fixates on a sound, breathe and return to flow of sounds present in that moment.
When your sound mindfulness session is complete (via timer or natural occurrence), shift awareness back to your breath and slowly open your eyes.
Sound mindfulness should last 5-15 minutes a few times a week. If your are unable to commit to 5-15 minutes, allow yourself at least 5 minutes, use a timer as an aid. First thing in the morning or right before bed is best for this practice for newbies. You can do this before you rise from bed in the morning, while waiting for the coffee to brew or step out onto your patio, balcony, pool area after dinner and sit for the 5 minutes and go through process.
Improve your health and overall well-being through mindful relaxation.

Vitamins and MINERALS
Every element in the periodic table is, by definition, inorganic. Once a living system picks up the element and creates other molecules, they become organic.
HUmates, which creates HUmic and Fulvic Acid Mineral is organic because HUmates contain minerals that were picked up by plants and incorporated into the plant itself. Yes, it is fascinating to say the least – seemingly simple but also complex and absolutely divine.
Once the plant decomposes, portions of the original organic molecules still persist. Organic molecules are easier for the body to assimilate. Humates are a great resource for delivering major minerals. They also deliver trace minerals, which are needed in very small amounts and are hard to come by. HUmates are absorbed by the body and the body gets rid of the minerals it doesn’t need.
Vitamins are organic and more delicate than minerals. Vitamins can be broken down by heat, age, air, or acid. They will degrade over time and/or be consumed. All vitamins are needed by the body, whereas only some minerals are required for nutrition.
Minerals are, by definition, atoms. They are elements that are in their basic state and won’t break down further. HUmates, HUmic Fulvic Acid MINERAL are plant sourced minerals that can be readily assimilated by the body. They provide both major and trace minerals.
The body has sophisticated mechanisms to rid the body of compounds it can’t use or that are waste products of metabolism. Excess minerals fall into this category. However, inorganic minerals in various forms and compounds can be harder to expel and can act as free radicals, causing cellular damage. The minerals in humates: humic/fulvic acid mineral, being organic do not pose the same problems.
Excess minerals in the body have been found to cause imbalances which can result in difficulty in maintaining healthy pH levels, hormonal system, arteries, muscle/joint, heart, brain function, etc. These imbalances can affect sleep patterns, energy, focus, weight, stamina, joint/muscle which ultimately affects our functioning ability from the daily to our exercise mobility, and healthy aging.
Vitamins help your body grow and work the way it should. Minerals help your body function. Some minerals, like iodine, copper, selenium and fluoride, are only needed in very small quantities. Others, such as calcium, magnesium, potassium (which are major minerals), are needed in larger amounts. HUmic/Fulvic Acid Mineral contains all major and trace minerals in a complete compound. If you eat a varied diet you will get some of the necessary vitamin and mineral nutrients, but likely not enough and certainly not enough minerals. This is where supplementation and HUmineral Humic Mineral takes the baton.
Vitamins are essentially minerals in disguise. There are 13 essential vitamins. Vitamin A, C, D, E, K and the B’s (B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9, B12). We will delve into these 13 essential micronutrients and their purpose, in our next newsletter. Stay tuned and in touch.
HUmic Acid MINERAL
Electrolytes are mineral nutrients (elements) in the body that carry energy and form electric charges in body fluid. Some of those major minerals (electrolytes) are (calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, phosphate, chloride). They have a multitude of important functions, such as heartbeat rhythms, signaling and regulation, transmitting nerve impulses, allowing muscle contraction, stabilizing blood pressure, bone building and strengthening, reducing anxiety, supporting hormonal function and digestive issues.
Electrolytes are soluble in water and work by conducting electrical currents, helping cells to live healthy in the face of damage caused by a myriad of stresses; emotional, environmental, infections, improper diet, lack of sleep and general free radicals.
You can obtain electrolytes through foods and drinking fluids. However, you lose electrolytes by sweating during exercise, and through urination and defecation. Improper diet, excessive exercise and illness can also cause loss of electrolytes and imbalances within the body.
Humineral to the rescue. Humic acid is a two-chain mineral miracle, a powerful electrolyte and so much more. Encompassing the calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, phosphate and chloride but also over 8o+ more minerals derived from plants. All 8 major macro minerals and every trace mineral necessary to sustain the body. Significantly, Humic mineral works adaptagenically, only providing what the body can use.

Clin Med (Lond). 2004 Nov-Dec;4(6):573-8.Fluid, Electrolytes and NutritionAbstractNutrition and fluid and electrolyte balance are inextricably linked through ingestion, digestion, absorption and intermediary metabolism. Studies are described showing that man’s physiological capacity to excrete excess salt and water is limited under normal conditions; it is further reduced by starvation and injury, so that patients are easily overloaded, resulting in increased complications of illness and surgery. Return of gastrointestinal function postoperatively is delayed by moderate saline overload. Illness not only influences external fluid and electrolyte balance but also internal balance between the extracellular and intracellular spaces and between the intravascular and extravascular components of the extracellular space. The mechanisms and management of these changes are discussed. The importance of fluid and electrolyte balance in nutritional support is emphasised–indeed, the benefits of nutrition may be negated by electrolyte imbalance. The relationships between serum albumin concentration, illness, nutrition and fluid balance are discussed and the limited role of albumin infusions described. Surveys among doctors have revealed a poor knowledge of fluid and electrolyte balance. Measures are needed to improve training.Fluid, electrolytes and nutrition.

Memory loss effects everyone, no matter 80 or 25, and in some cases, genetics play a part.
Mother Earth: Provides Mineral Nutrients
From minerals we are made and so it makes complete sense that we need minerals (and water) to live. Millions lack the mineral nutrients necessary to sustain a healthy body and mental functions. The human body requires many minerals; iron, magnesium, potassium, calcium, and traces of other minerals to function at healthy capacity. When we don’t get what we need, we can feel sluggish, have issues with focus, concentration and memory, and are susceptible to a host of illness and mental fatigue. To stay healthy and give our body what it needs to stay revved up and at full throttle; exercise, a diet of nutrient rich foods and mineral supplementation is an ideal daily regimen.
HUmineral’s Zeolite and Humic/Fulvic Mineral nutrient Raw Powder Vegetarian capsules and Raw Liquid supplements provide you with more than 80 minerals — and the body knows exactly how to use these organic mineral nutrients. Completely plant -based, USA product, non-GMO, gluten, sugar, wheat, fat, nut, dairy and soy free!
The Mission is Health
According to Dr. Michael Rozien on ShareCare.com: “…the memory decline actually starts…in your mid 20s. It’s not uncommon to see effects in your 30s and many more in your 40s.”
That means no adult is safe from memory loss — but you can combat memory loss by taking simple steps to increase daily “brain exercise.”
In the information age with so much of our work and personal information available through electronics, more people are taking advantage of the decreased need to memorize important information … this is a problem. When we don’t exercise our “brain muscles” we begin to lose the ability to remember simple things. And don’t think this can only happen to the elderly!
Thankfully, there are simple things you can do to help combat memory loss.
Adding 70 minutes of moderate exercise to your weekly routine can help keep your brain in tip-top shape. Aerobic activity helps keep the blood flowing, keeps the mind alert and happy. If you can’t get 70 minutes of exercise in per week, try brisk 10-minute walks (perhaps with 2, 5 or 10lb weights in hand), or play basketball or tennis if you need a motivation partner.
Not only does exercise help keep your brain and body healthy, so does good supplementation. HUmic Mineral nutrient supplement provides a plethora of mineral nutrients that improves gut health, including: trace minerals, electrolytes, fatty acids, silica (which boosts collagen synthesis), prebiotics and probiotics. These minerals help nourish the digestive tract and also boost the ability of “good bacteria” to repopulate and form a healthy “microbiome” environment.

According to the Celiac Disease Foundation, Gluten is: a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley. It helps food hold its shape, acting as a glue. Gluten can be found in many foods, most of which you’d never consider containing it.
While gluten is a building block of food, some people cannot tolerate it in their diets, many of those same people becoming violently ill upon ingesting gluten. Because we understand that gluten can cause severe issues, we wanted to make sure that even those who enjoy a gluten-free lifestyle can still enjoy the benefits of HUmineral products.
HUmineral nutrient supplement products are gluten-free, wheat-free, dairy-free, soy-free, sugar-free, fat-free, USA and non-GMO.
REFERENCE: Humic and Fulvic Acid Mineral contains a plethora of nutrients that improve gut health, including: trace minerals, electrolytes, fatty acids, silica (which boosts collagen synthesis), pre-biotics and probiotics. These help nourish the digestive tract and also boost the ability of “good bacteria” to repopulate and form a healthy “microbiome” environment. We need a strong digestive system to build immunity, help control hormone production, regulate our appetite, reduce our stress response and much more. As a result of gut permeability (when particles are able to escape through the gut lining and enter the bloodstream where they should not normally be), inflammation is triggered and autoimmune reactions can occur. There is some evidence that consuming humic/fulvic acid mineral promotes a healthy intestinal tract and immune system (digestive disorders and other issues, including: SIBO symptoms, (small intestine bacterial overgrowth), inflammatory bowel disorders, bacterial infections (respiratory, urinary tract, etc.), or the flu and common colds.

The body is very wise. Your body is like a computer – your cells are like the chips if you think about how they work. Cellular hunger is what the body needs on a cellular level. The body knows best what it needs and sometimes what the body needs is water rather than food – food is for fuel. Sometimes a dislike or aversion to a particular food points to an intolerance or allergy. On the other hand, some cravings can point to nutrients the body is missing. There are times we can be more cellular aware; when pregnant, when traveling to a new environment, after a health challenge, or major weight loss. Our palate for the unusual and inexplicable may vary. Many of us today can be very disconnected from our cellular bodies – due to our general busyness, tiredness and diet-mentality. It can be quite difficult to really tune in to cellular hunger. With mindfulness practice, time, and patience, you can reconnect with your cellular hunger and literally change your health.
A great way to achieve cellular connectivity is to, for one month change your diet, eat only a few of thesame foods at each meals. Breakfast – eggs, oatmeal, plain greek yogurt, fruits or a smoothie; Lunch/Dinner – basic soups, simple salads, protein (chicken, fish, beef), varietal of vegetables. Lots of water, work out and try not to partake in alcoholic beverages, sweets and simple carbs. For snacks you can do nuts, cheese (preferably a white), light crackers (rice), seaweed snack packs, olive bread, olives, fruit, cottage cheese, trail mixes. You want to think healthy, bland, sugar free and nutrient dense.
Humic mineral is the missing “changer” asset in our diet. It consist of some 80+ organic major and trace plant based polyphenol rich (antioxidant) life-sustaining electrolyte mineral nutrients. Humic Mineral provides healthy-aging, free-radical fighting, antioxidant boosting nutrients that nourishes and hydrates on a cellular level. Essentially, humic/fulvic mineral aids the body’s ability take up nutrients, acting as carrier channel to increase cell permeability. This allows easier transport of vital mineral nutrient to your body and is able to truly capitalize on all nutrients consumed … additionally aiding gut health and immune function.

Cellular Hunger –
The body is very wise. Your body is like a computer, your cells function as the chips.
Cellular hunger is what the body needs on a cellular level. Sometimes what the body needs is water rather than food. This is why we hear a lot about electrolytes. First thing in the morning, it is good to consume water. The body knows what it needs. It needs food for fuel and water for hydration. There are times we can be more cellular aware; when pregnant, when traveling to a new environment, after a health challenge, surgery, or major weight loss. At these times, our palate for the unusual and inexplicable may vary.
Many of us today can be very disconnected from our cellular body requirements – due to our general busyness, tiredness and diet-mentality. It can be quite difficult to really tune in to cellular hunger. However, with intentional mindfulness practice, devoted time, and patience, you can reconnect with your cellular hunger and literally change your health. Sometimes a dislike or aversion to a particular food points to an intolerance or allergy. On the other hand, some cravings can point to nutrients the body is desperately seeking.
One good way to achieve cellular connectivity, for one month change your diet. Eat only a few of the same foods regularly for all meals. Breakfast – eggs/omelette, oatmeal, plain greek yogurt, fruits or a smoothie. Lunch/Dinner – basic soups, simple salads, protein (chicken, fish, beef), varietal of vegetables. Substitutions are in plentitude for those vegan, keto, vegetarian and other diets. Drink lots of water, work out and try not to partake in alcoholic beverages, sweets and major carbs. For snacks you can do nuts, cheese (preferably a white) with light crackers or an olive/specialty bread, olives, fruit, cottage cheese, trail mixes, a health smoothie/juice drink. You want to think healthy eating for this month, bland, sugar free and nutrient dense, lots of green.

POLYPHENOLS & ELECTROLYTES
Polyphenols – a type of antioxidant found primarily in plants. The most powerful free-radical fighting molecules, readily available in many of the foods you can find in the grocery aisle. However, we do not get nearly the nutrition we need from our foods today, so we need to supplement. The more free-radicals you fight, the healthier your system.
The Foodwatch.com.au website states that: “There are over 4,000 polyphenol compounds. Many are powerful antioxidants and can neutralize free radicals, reduce inflammation, and slow the growth of diseases.”If it is on your agenda to obtain a healthier daily lifestyle, there are a few choices you can make right now. Work out (body and mind), eat well and supplement necessary nutrients. HUmineral HUmic mineral products will aid this mission by fighting inflammation, kicking free-radicals, slowing and perhaps preventing the growth of disease in the body, due to its superior two-chain mineral molecule that provides powerful polyphenols (antioxidants) and life altering electrolytes.
HUmineral product, offers a topical form and ingestibles. Formulated for kids to adults. Our polyphenol rich raw liquid mineral food nutrient in supplement form, also available in a vegetarian capsule and a mineral face/hair/body spray for head to toe.
