In the early 1920’s a rancher in Central Utah fell seriously ill. Doctors were unable to diagnose his illness and his condition became progressively worse. Desperate to save his life, he allowed a local Native American to lead him to a sacred spring and he drank from the small pool of golden water that lay at the base of magnificent sandstone cliffs. He continued drinking the water until his illness subsided. Amazed by his recovery, He traced the trickle of spring water to its origin by following it through the labyrinth of cracks and crevices in the sandstone cliffs isolating the various ore deposits it passed through on its way to the healing pool below.
They use Native herbs are used for medicine, seasoning and as food (i.e. in salads). All children are breast-fed. No vaccinations or antibiotics are administered. They have virtually no birth defects and only two hermaphrodites or “mukhanas” have been recorded in the 2,300-year Hunzan history. After observing the Hunza people, Dr. Joe Wallach stated, “We must point out that the highly mineralized Hunza people have no jails or criminals or drug related problems of any kind. Disputes are usually over water rights, or on rare occasion, over a woman. Differences are settled quickly by the tribal elders and the worst punishment ever given out is that of banishment from Hunza Valley.”What difference minerals make!
