Stress nutrition is perhaps a fundamental key for survival in modern society. It emphasizes vitamins and especially minerals that can balance the brain chemistry. If we are physically and psychologically unable to employ winning strategies, we cannot survive.
The following are examples of behavioral diseases correlating with mineral imbalances:
Hyperactivity, ADD: copper, cadmium, toxicity; zinc, magnesium, calcium deficiency
Autism: mercury, lead, copper toxicity; suppressed zinc and trace elements: digestive problems leading to inadequate mineral absorption
Depression: depleted manganese, magnesium, potassium; suppressed zinc and vitamin B
Addictive/compulsive disorders: depleted selenium, magnesium
