Way up in the misty mountains, there are people living under the roof of the world here and there along the Himalayas. They have very little rain, but the mountains water these people with glacial milk packed with minerals. This water flowing from beneath huge glaciers are fountains of youth. Most of the people living in these mountain tribes live beyond 100.
What allows these people to live longer?
Just what is our genetic potential? How old could people really live if they did everything right?
All species of animals have a genetic potential, to live to a certain age.
- For mice, it’s 700 days
- Dogs – 23 yrs
- Horses – 32
- Elephants – 45 yrs
- Chimpanzees – 52 yrs
Wikipedia has an article on maximum life spans
So how long can people live? What is our genetic potential?
According to the online publication, Healthline, written by Elizabeth Pratt on July 15, 2019; The average life expectancy of people in America has declined in the past three years to 78.6 years old.
Anemic Crop Soils
Elizabeth Pratt puts forward suspicions but no solid conclusions I on the other hand, after reading Dead Doctors Don’t Lie, by Dr. Joel Wallach (1999) [YouTube, 2020}, contend that the problem stems from the dwindling mineral content in crop soils:
- Minerals maintain your immune system
- Everyone who dies from natural causes dies from a disease brought on by one or more mineral deficiencies
- Generally, the only mineral in crop soils that is added after each harvest is nitrogen, because added nitrogen produces larger produce in a quicker time
- If the minerals are not in the soil they won’t be in the plants
- Think about it: minerals are chemical elements – nothing can make a chemical element. Typically, we humans have found a way to destroy some chemical elements, even alter radioactive isotopes, but not make them. Only God can do that.
- The minerals we need, need to have come from a plant for them to be adequately absorbable.
- If you are taking mineral supplements, they won’t be doing you much good if they are not plant-based colloidal minerals [like most of the stuff you buy at a pharmacy].
- Possible reasons for a decline in American life expectancy put forward by Pratt – obesity, drugs, and suicide – are all the results of mineral deficiencies
- If you pop over to the 2020 YouTube video, you will see a man who looks to be around 50 years old but is actually over 80.
Although the above information is firmly founded upon than more than 10 years of research that was sponsored by the National Institutes of Health in America, it is aggressively suppressed, because there is no money to be made. You can’t slap a patent on a mineral.
Using minerals to prevent and cure disease was labeled as “quackery” by JD Rockefeller and his mates back in 1910 and has been the prevailing opinion of the general public ever since. Dissenters tend to be sued; there are some very nasty people in mainstream medicine.
Currently, according to the CDC (Center for Disease Control), medical doctors in America, kill, injure, and infect 15 million people in America each year.
You should stay away from doctors as much as you can because they will kill you if they get the chance. I ask you: Who are the “Quacks” these days?
Here’s an interesting story
After church one day I was telling a man about how dangerous doctors could be when he got really offended and came back with an angry “Doctors do a lot of good!”. I immediately changed the subject; causing offense was not my intention.
Two years later his son was diagnosed with terminal cancer. The doctors gave him 12 months to live.
In response to this terrible news, he and his father booked a lavish cruise. It wasn’t till they came back from the cruise that the doctors told the son that they had been wrong and that he didn’t have cancer after all.
The thought of “I told you so” did actually cross my mind more than once.
Since the 1980s, great faith and a lot of time, effort, and money have been put into genetic engineering, but there are several cultures around the world who unwittingly found other ways to live longer lives.
These are the people who live the longest.
The theory of evolution
I don’t believe in the theory of evolution.
Third World cultures where people routinely live much longer than people in the West
The age beaters, showing us by example just how long we can live, are people living in Third World cultures in isolated, far-flung, out of the way places around the world.
These people were fortunate because they set up their homelands in Garden-of-Eden-like, biochemically ideal locations. As a result, many live past 120 yrs, some as long as 160 yrs.
The importance of essential nutrients to living longer and healthier
The association between longevity, disease, birth defects, and essential nutrients was well documented by research sponsored by the NIH in the 1960s and 70s.
A team of pathology experts began work on what would become a huge thick textbook. In this book, many long-held genetic theories are debunked.
The 1200 page tomb contains 28 chapters – one for each classification of animal and gives exhaustive information about the animal kingdom.
Originally there was a team of 28 writers including veterinarian pathologist, Dr. Joel Wallach. Eventually, the others dropped out over the years leaving Dr. Wallach to do all of it. (When he was at university, he did two degrees simultaneously: Ag Science and Veterinarian Pathology – in highschool he tended to be lazy.)
The book is available at the Smithsonian Institute. Nobody pays much attention to it.
The people that started these cultures were had been forced to flee from monetary, racial, or, religious persecution. Escaping from royal armies, they found refuge in high altitude mountainous regions.
These locations ranging from 8,500 to 14,000 feet in elevation had an extremely low rainfall of fewer than 2 inches per year forcing these people to set up dwellings close by rivers that were fed by glaciers.
Serendipitously, the bedrock beneath the countryside contained up to 72 nutritious minerals. The action of glacial ice grinding on rock causes the glacial melt, coming out from under the ice. This water is filled with rock particles in suspension and is commonly-known as glacial milk.
Glacial milk – nutrient-rich water
The glacial milk is filled with nutritious minerals.
All of these cultures built canals and aqueducts to siphon water for drinking, cooking, washing, and crop irrigation.
The mineral nutrient cycle
Drinking glacial milk is of little or no benefit. Eating the plants watered by glacial milk is.
The plants absorb the minerals from the water through their roots.
Grazing animals absorb the minerals by eating the plants, and the people absorb the minerals when they eat the plants and the livestock.
Plants never create minerals, only what’s in the ground will be in the plants. Not even nitrogen. Plants do not absorb nitrogen from the air. it has to be in the ground.
The idea that clover is good for your lawn because of its nitrogen content is bunkum. It’s more likely that clover takes away nitrogen that could have been absorbed by the lawn; so pull those suckers out (and cigarette ash is not good for your carpet).
The Fountain of Youth
The grains, vegetables, fruits, and nuts, grown with the silt-laden water, convert the inorganic chemical elements in the rock particles into plant-derived colloidal minerals which are readily absorbed by the body.
This glacial milk is quite literally the fountain of youth and is common to all of these age beating cultures that live to be very old.
Heavy exercise does NOT make you live longer
Jogging is not the elixir of life
A commonly held false belief in Western culture is that you can increase your life span through vigorous daily exercise.
Two people who first began to promote jogging as the key to a long and healthy life were Jim Fixx and Dr. George Sheehan.
They touted running as the elixir of life.
Sweating and mineral loss
What they didn’t realize was that heavy exercise leads to heavy sweating and mineral loss.
Heavy exercise or work without mineral supplements is a negative rather than a positive.
Sheehan died at the age of 76. He lived 6 months longer than your average couch potato.
Fixx, author of the 1977 best-selling Jog Your Way to Health died of a heart attack at the age of 52 while jogging.
Doctors were quick to suggest that it was a genetically transmitted problem because his father had died from a second heart attack at the age of 43.
Heart disease is a calcium deficiency – proven yet still denied by doctors (Wallach, 1999).
Jessie Owens died at the age of 66.
Search for the oldest people
There are several cultures where people routinely live from 120 to 140 years of age. A special edition of National Graphic Magazine in January 1973, ” Search for the oldest people” documented these people. They had the following 6 things in common.
- These communities live in sheltered valleys at elevations between 8,500 ft. and 12,000 ft.
- Annual rainfall is less than 2 inches
- All of their water comes from glacial milk or rock flour
- There is no industrial pollution
- The only things they add to their crop soils are animal manure, plant debris, and nutrient-rich glacial milk
- They don’t have Western medicine – no doctors
Long-lived far-flung mountain tribes
These cultures live in the Himalayas, Russia, and the top of South America.
James Hilton got his inspiration for his book Shangri-La from the Tibetan culture. One of the main characters in the book was the 200-year-old leader of a hidden community that could only be reached by a secret tunnel through the side of a mountain from ice and snow into the sunshine, warmth, and rich vegetation.
Li-Ching-Yun, Hilton’s inspiration for the 200-year-old leader in his story, reportedly lived to the age of 256 and outlived 23 wives. There are Chinese records (Chinese record keeping is the most meticulous in the world) that show Li was born in 1677 and died in 1933. He was from Szechwan in China.
May 6, 1933, The London Times reported: “Telegrams in brief–A telegram from Chungking, in the Provence of Szechwan, China, states that Li-Ching-Yun, reputed to be the oldest man in China, and presumably in the world, has died at KiahSien, at the alleged age of 256 (Reuters).”
Li received his first official congratulations from the Chinese Imperial Government after turning 150, 200, and 250. His advice on how to live a long and healthy life was to keep a quiet heart, sit like a tortoise, and sleep like a dog.
The longest living man in Nepal
The associated press reported on April 21, 1998: “Nepal’s oldest man Bir Narayan Chaudhuri, a regular smoker who never set foot in a hospital, died Monday, April 20, 1998, at the age of 141.” He was said to have subsisted on a diet of vegetables, pork, beef, and rice.
The Russian Georgians, as well as the Abkhazians, Azerbaijanis, and Armenians, are found at the timberline at the foot of the Caucasus Mountains which have peaks of 12,434 to 13, 274 feet above sea level.
- They live in simple houses made of stone and have no electricity
- They have very low blood pressure at age 100, of 104/72
- Normal is considered to be 120/80
- Women still bear children after the age of 52
- They drink vodka for breakfast
The Caucasus Mountains run from the Black Sea to the Caspian Sea. The tree line is 4,500 ft. above sea level. This region supports 500,000 people, around 5,000 of whom are over the age of 100. The people hunt, fish, and farm.
Mejid Agayev celebrated his 140th birthday on February 12th, 1975. He was the oldest person living in the Azerbaijani village of Tikyaband, which boasted of having 54 people over the age of 100.
Macedonians that fled to the Hanza Valley and lived long lives
Alexsander the Great undermined by fraternizing generals
This all began 2,300 years ago with Alexander the Great. Alexander’s father King Phillip had been murdered by a reckless and errant officer, and he found himself surrounded by dangerous enemies. The restless local tribes who had been conquered by Phillip’s armies were thirsty for revenge and anxious to be governed by their own leaders.
Alexander acted quickly and decisively, his resounding put-down established his reputation as a mighty general. But as is often the way, his next foe was more terrible. He was forced to battle the Persian Empire led by King Darius.
In the midst of this, he learned that three of his generals had taken Persian wives and were probably passing on valuable intelligence to Darius. His suspicions were confirmed after narrowly avoiding defeat.
Generals escape and start a new community – The Hanzas
He gave orders that they were to be executed immediately. The generals, however, were warned and managed to flee northeast, following the Indus River.
After crossing a 3,000 ft. deep Hanza River gorge using a suspended bridge strung together with braided goat hair, the generals with their wives settled in the Hanza Valley and became the nucleus of a warrior tribe.
The Hunza valley is at the foot of the north-western slopes of the Himalayas, east of the Caspian sea.
These Hanza warriors (given their name by Indian Girkis, meaning arrow in Persian, they were formerly known as the Kanjuts), raided caravans on a trade route from China to India in the 19th Century.
They were subdued in 1891 by the British Empire which conquered them in battle and installed an Islamic ruler known as the Mir.
The Hanza Diet
These days they eat most of their food raw because of a scarcity of fuel, but they do have plenty of salt.
- Their diet is high in fat from milk, butter, ghee, apricot oil, and animal fats
- They have glacial milk for water
- They consume 1,800 to 2,000 calories each day
- Our Western dieticians recommend 2,000 for women and 2,500 for men
- They add chunks of brown rock salt to their tea and to the food they cook
- They live long and healthy lives.
Other Locations of Long-lived People
In 1966 Dr. Joel Wallach, a veterinarian pathologist, was given a grant of 7.5 million dollars to study the cause of death in animals and humans.
Twelve years, and 20,000 autopsies later, the utterly compelling conclusion was that animals and humans that die from natural causes die from a disease caused by a deficiency of one or more minerals.
For a short time the contention that diseases are genetically transmitted, was blown out of the water. but then the information was successfully suppressed.
Still, much of Wallach’s work is recorded in a 1200 page book held at the Smithsonian Institute in America.
Even after appearances on TV and radio, and a lot of support from the brightest and the best in Western medicine, Wallach’s work was eventually quashed.
Simple Cultures: uncontaminated by the WEst
A significant factor in the success of living longer, enjoyed by these far-flung Third World communities is that they haven’t been contaminated by modern Western medicine or health advice.
The main key, however, is that they unwittingly found places to live where they would get an abundant supply of essential nutritious minerals from their food.
The other things people can do to live longer would be to avoid pitfalls such as drinking, smoking, fried food, and vegetable oil. (vegetable oil tends to remain in the body and turn rancid)
The livestock industry has all but eradicated 900 diseases in their animals using mineral supplements, yet not many many realize that the same thing can be done for humans.
Top 6 Things To Take Away
- Humans have the biological potential to live significantly longer than 115, which currently seems to be the upper limit, and enjoy those extra years.
- Valuable minerals are lost in sweat. If you sweat a lot because of exercise, sport, work, or even Sauna, you definitely need to replace the minerals you lose by supplementing your diet
- Nutritional information regarding minerals for any food is just a guess. Mineral content in food is absolutely reliant on location and what is in the ground. It even varies from plant to plant, animal to animal.
- Plant-derived colloidal minerals are 98% absorbable. Some popular brands of mineral supplements, mostly pass through the body unabsorbed. Drinking glacial milk is also of no value.
- The phrase “You can get everything you need from the five food groups”, popular among doctors, is responsible for untold misery and death.
- You need to supplement, or move to a glacier and start growing your own food.
- Youngevity has a range of supplement packages that contain 60 plant-derived colloidal minerals
