Fluorine can be a difficult element to write about because there really isn’t a whole lot of information out there on it in comparison to the other elements like Oxygen, Carbon, Potassium, and Sodium. Nevertheless, it is a critically important element the human body needs for survival. It falls under the Halogen category of elements on the Periodic Table along with Chlorine, Bromine, and Iodine. However, as we know Chlorine is poisonous to humans as is Fluorine. In order for humans to utilize this element, it must evolve to a higher “vibrational” level that can only be accomplished by other plants and animals before human consumption. Humans are able to utilize Fluoride, rather than Fluorine. Because it is part of the Halogen family, its properties are similar to that of Chloride and Iodine regarding human health. They all help with cleansing and protecting our cells and aid in an efficient metabolism. Fluoride is most well known for its role in resisting decay. Most notably, it helps prevent cavities and other dental problems. This is why you hear dentists all over the world talk about getting enough Fluoride in our diets. Most dentists will promote toothpastes that proclaim they have Fluoride in them, but I’m going to be honest with you, this synthetic Fluoride doesn’t really do any good. In fact, some studies say it could cause more harm than benefit. This is because once it is exposed to the slightest bit of heat, the element vanishes into the air. No elements that have been made in a chemistry lab or manufacturing plant are going to benefit humans because they have been exposed to heat or light and are synthetic. Humans simply cannot absorb these synthetic substitutes. Humans MUST get Fluoride in a highly evolved form that came from plants and animals, or food sources that are in their untouched state. Fluoride has a strong connection to Calcium, which is why it is crucial for the health of our bones, including teeth. Fluoride can provide the protective covering so Oxygen will not erode the bony and cartilaginous tissue, including joints and joint tissue. Fossils that have been found and appear to be relatively well preserved probably have a high amount of Fluoride in them. Because this element can resist decay, it allows humans to remain youthful looking. For those Ponce De Leon people out there, the fountain of youth actually comes from within our own bodies and is credited to certain preservative elements such as Sodium and Fluoride. Those that have a high Fluoride count, but not in excess, are very resistant to viruses, inflammation and dis-ease. This naturally brings me to the question of how humans can receive this highly evolved element in its natural untouched state. Some of the best sources for this wonderful element are, to name just a few, avocados, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, dates, garlic, raw fish such as sushi, seaweed, and raw (unpasteurized) goat and sheep’s cheese/milk. The more foods you can eat in their raw state the better. If you must cook, and some foods do need to be cooked, you should aim to steam, or cook with low heat in stainless steel pots and pans.
