This is an incredible source of information regarding the role of minerals in the body and recommended food sources. There is also a good correlation made between the need for certain minerals and an individual's defined body type. I easily identified myself within Dr. Jensen's 20 body types, and found myself represented with remarkable accuracy and precision. Although I found certain recommendations to be somewhat unclear, this is still a very remarkable book. I am not aware of any similarly precise sources of information with regard to body types as they relate to minerals.

This book covers the life work of Dr. Bernard Jensen his research on the chemistry of food and how it affects our health. The relationship between food and health is discussed in great detail.

The first section contains ten chapters (111 pages) is background; why the soil is depleted, letters from his mentor, a brief introduction to iridology, and an explanation of his sanitarium experience.

What he called a sanitarium, today we would probably probably call a medically supervised spa. His patients lived at the sanitarium; he oversaw their nutrition, exercise, water intake, and numerous aspects of their daily life. As a result, he was able to constantly monitor their progress, and the impact of his recommendations.

The second section is where he gets to the most usable and important information. He describes 16 chemical elements that he believes we must obtain from food, and that are necessary for proper health. He gives them all nick names, such as calcium, the "knitter," iodine, the "metabolizer," and manganese, the "love" element. Each chapter is an in depth discussion of the element, its benefits, which foods provide it, what a deficiency causes, what an excess causes, and numerous case histories of people who recovered from chronic illnesses caused by nutritional issues. There are many striking before and after photos. While he can ramble and repeat himself, I refer to these 16 chapters on a regular basis.

His chapter on iodine is the best description of the relationship between plant based iodine (seaweeds) and thyroid health that I've ever read. If every endocrinologist read this chapter, there would never be another thyroidectomy (thyroid removal) due to goiter again.

This is an excellent book, I do not really suggest this book for beginners in health (read his "bowel management" book instead.) He was my teacher's teacher ( I studied in Naturopathy), my teacher has helped huge amount of sick people get their health back. Back to the book, almost 600 pages of packed great information, everything this man writes is excellent !!!!!! In this book, he goes very deep into the minerals. If you love alot of details then this book is for you.

There is a reason that Calcium, magnesium, sodium and even potassium are necessary in the diet and body to continue to function as well as a myriad of other minerals and nutrients. Dr. Jensen has compiled all these necessary reasons into one nicely written and wonderfully easy book. Though thick and rather intimidatingly big, this book holds the information that today's modern society will be searching for in the very near future.....a way to get back on track physically and away from the illness and pain of being out of balance within.

"The Chemistry of Man" was purchased for one of my classes to obtain my ND degree. The book far exceeds my expectations. It is beautifully written, well understood, and to the point. I love the information because it is practical. I have initiated this information into my own daily lifestyle and can't wait to share with others.
I've used the information in "The Chemistry of Man" since my receipt of the book in December of 2014. As a result, I feel much better and hope to continually improve.
I love the breakdown of the chemistry. I have printed each nutrient reference such as calcium, nitrogen, magnesium, etc. From the list of those mentioned, I try to add something to my diet daily.
The book is a great one for reference and is an asset to my family and me. I would definitely refer it to others to use in their library as I am doing in mine.

Very informative book. I've used it to look up several medical conditions and have found I was lacking in certain vitamins & minerals. My health is much better after taking the supplements I was lacking.
