Essential Nutrients by Dr. Peter Glidden

According to Dr. Peter Glidden, the human body needs 90 essential nutrients to stay healthy.

“There are 90 essential nutrients that the human body needs; there are 16 minerals, 16, vitamins, 12 amino acids and two fatty acids, which are essential for health. The body needs them, but can’t make them. And as these essential nutrients have declined in the food that we’re eating over the last 60 years, chronic disease has escalated. There is a one-to-one relationship between chronic nutrient deficiencies and the genesis of chronic disease,”


Glidden pointed out that mineral deficiency is also a problem because minerals make up two-thirds of the body’s nutrient needs, and when the body runs out of an essential nutrient it would be a matter of time before something breaks down.

“So in order to fix this, it’s not rocket science; you just have to put into your body on a regular basis the 90 essential nutrients that it requires,”

 “Everybody is nutritionally deficient. Everybody’s digestive tract is weak. Everybody’s digestive acid is weak. Everybody’s ability of the small intestine to absorb nutrients into the bloodstream is weak, not because you have a bad gene or because you have a voodoo curse, but because you’re nutritionally deficient.”

No free medical market

Glidden, who presented a healthy base pack that he said is the easiest way to get the 90 essential nutrients the body needs, also regretted the lack of a free medical market. He said there is a place in the world for all types of medicine, and that people should be aware of the skill set that each medical professional brings to the table.

“Most people completely don’t understand, you know, the laws of science and the laws of nature don’t change when you cross the state line… And, you know, the American Medical Association doesn’t like competition. And so things like this have been happening behind the scenes for 109 years now. And it’s the secret that’s hiding in plain sight that we don’t have a free medical market. We desperately need a free medical market, right? And that would solve a lot of the problems that we’re facing right now,”

He pointed out the increasing number of chronic diseases and the lack of experience with medical nutrition.

“Alzheimer’s is skyrocketing. Autism is skyrocketing. No change in the genesis for the incidence of heart disease. Arthritis is getting worse. Our life expectancy is getting shorter. Obesity is on the rise. Type-two diabetes is on the rise,”

“We’re getting sicker as a nation, we’re not getting healthier. And this is not because we have a bad gene, chemtrails, 5G radiations and all of those things are real and they have net negative impacts on the human body. But the real reason the chronic disease is escalating is that conventionally trained allopathic medical doctors have no experience with medical nutrition. And that is a gigantic omission. You wouldn’t believe the things that I and my colleagues have seen our patients recover from, and it’s really a tragedy that this type of medical approach is not mainstream.”


“If you have high blood pressure, for example, the first thing to consider is that you have a deficiency in calcium and magnesium. Because if you have a deficiency in calcium and magnesium, the muscles in your body can’t constrict and relax the way that nature intended them to. So you’ll get muscle spasms, you’ll get restless legs, you’ll get ticks, you’ll get twitches,” Glidden explained.

“And regretfully, if the muscles that are in your arteries and veins constrict but don’t relax, the blood pressure is gonna go up. It’s the same as what happens when you squeeze a garden hose, the water comes out faster. And it’s not because you’re getting older, it’s not because you have a bad gene. It’s not because you have a lot of situational stress, it’s because your body ran out of calcium and magnesium.”

Glidden insisted on the need to teach the fundamentals to physicians and open the world to all types of medicine.

“Medicine is like a big umbrella under which many different disciplines hang, right?  You’re trained as an allopathic doctor. I’m a naturopathic doctor. There’s homeopathic medicine, chiropractic medicine, osteopathic medicine, Traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture, the oldest system of medicine on the planet, ayurvedic medicine, botanical medicine, to name a few. All of these disciplines need to be recognized and legalized,”


Doctors and pharmaceutical companies are making money from it. That is the only reason chemotherapy is still used. Not because it is effective, and decreases morbidity, mortality, or cancer rates. In fact, it does the opposite.

Chemotherapy increases cancer growth and long-term mortality rates. Most patients who receive chemotherapy die or suffer illness within 10-15 years of treatment. It damages their immune system, increases neurocognitive impairment, alters endocrine functioning, and causes organ and metabolic toxicities.

Patients basically live in a permanent state of disease until their death. The cancer industry marginalizes safe and effective cures while promoting their patented, expensive, and toxic remedies whose risks far exceed any benefit. This is what they do best, and they do it because it makes money, plain and simple.
