Remineralizing Our Soils Springfield IL

The vitality of our crops and ultimately our bodies depends largely on soils containing a generous broad spectrum of minerals. To remineralize our depleted soils with the broad spectrum of mineral elements found in the world’s richest soils, it is necessary to add the rock minerals which were originally present in the soil.

The vitality of our crops and ultimately our bodies depends largely on soils containing a generous broad spectrum of minerals. To remineralize our depleted soils with the broad spectrum of mineral elements found in the world’s richest soils, it is necessary to add the rock minerals which were originally present in the soil.

“The rock is the mother of the soil,” is how one geologist in the 1800’s put it. Since the most fertile soils usually have a variety of types of “parent rocks”, it seems wise to try to duplicate the natural processes when we remineralize.

The Hunza Valley soils have grown some of the best crops of fruits, vegetables and people for centuries. The Hunzas irrigate their crops two or more times a year with the Ultar Glacier meltwater which contains glacial gravel dust, treasured as “glacial milk.” Glacial action has produced much of the Earth’s fertility, as glacier’s crushing mass grinds and mixes together rocks of broad variety and element content.
