It is because our bodies through wrong diet, lack of exercise, etc. we are OUT OF BALANCE. It is amazing to me how little of some trace minerals/elements we need and yet if one or more are lacking, a host of symptoms and diseases can develop.
Check out the link below for a list of the make up of our human bodies.
