Continuing research indicates that metabolic dysfunction occur not necessarily as a result of a deficiency or excess of a particular mineral level, but more frequently from an abnormal balance (ratio) between the minerals.
The Importance Of Ratios
- Ratios are often more important than levels.
- Ratios represent homeostatic balances.
- Ratios are indicative of disease trends. These are not diagnostic but are research associations.
- Ratios are frequently predictive of future metabolic dysfunctions or hidden metabolic dysfunctions.
Ratios can be used to chart progress.
