Is the highly esteemed New York Times catching up on what Mother Nature has to offer? Possibly, or perhaps science and research are, once again, catching up to what the Edgar Cayce readings have already revealed. An “Opinion” article from the NY Times (“Should we all take a bit of Lithium?”, Sunday Review – 9/13/14[i]) on the effects of Lithium caused a ripple effect in the health community and with those that are interested in natural alternatives for health.
What is Lithia Water?
Lithia water is defined as a mineral water characterized by the presence of lithium salts, as lithium carbonate or lithium chloride.[ii] Lithia has a unique mineral composition created by the earth. It contains a vital micronutrient that is necessary to maintain mental and physical health, as well as ionic minerals and trace essential elements important for overall health. “Lithium is a naturally occurring element, not a molecule like most medications, and it is present in the United States, depending on the geographic area, at concentrations that can range widely, from undetectable to around .170 milligrams per liter… Evidence is slowly accumulating that relatively tiny doses of lithium can have beneficial effects… few seem to be aware of its potential.”[i]
What does Lithia Water Do?
Countless testimonials on the benefits of Lithia water can be found throughout the internet or within historical reference, yet no independent scientific research had been conducted on Lithia Water until the 1980’s.
“Today lithium is little discussed despite the huge public appetite for health information. Nor is it much advertised or even available. … Online, however, there are lithium products.”[i]
Why is Lithia Water Important?
“Some scientists have, in fact, proposed that lithium be recognized as an essential trace element nutrient. Who knows what the impact on our society would be if micro-dose lithium were again part of our standard nutritional fare?” [i]
The health benefits of Lithia Water have been supported by numerous testimonials, and recent studies have found it to improve mood and cognitive function. It is also considered helpful for kidney and digestive support. “Research on a simple element like lithium that has been around as a medication for over half a century and as a drink for millenniums may not seem like a high priority, but it should be.” [i]
