17. The Law Of The Minimum
The development of living organisms is regulated by the supply of that element or factor which is least abundantly provided or utilized. The element or factor in shortest supply determines the amount of development.
Basically this law is: the least plentiful element or factor of health being in reserve or being supplied to the body will limit how much development will take place. It does not matter how much of a certain element or factor we concentrate on providing ourselves with. All factors and elements are integral and dependent on one another wherever they are necessary to the development of a cellular, organic, or systemic capability. Whenever they must be utilized in conjunction with one another, for instance, if three elements are necessary in a particular natural balance in order to achieve a reparative or developmental goal, the element which is least plentiful becomes the limiting factor for that necessary balance and therefore ultimately determines the amount of development that will result. This is a major argument against the use of dietary supplements, among others which fait to provide us with nutriment in a satisfactory biological form and biochemically correct balance, and it is also a major argument toward the use of natural, whole, unprocessed and unaltered organic foodstuffs which provide us, in accordance with the balance of nature as a symbiotic unity, the correct elemental balance of nutritional essentials necessary for balanced development.
