Mineral - Lanthanum
Ok with this mineral, we have a lot of the same type of stuff that we see with Lutetium. This mineral is sourced in abundance from the same soil types but on a little more of a scarcity in clay soils. Unlike Lutetium which is very scarce and a very trace mineral in the soil, Lanthanum is very abundant, so much so that it is one of the most abundant of all of the rare earth minerals. La is the symbol.
This mineral, under normal circumstances, will weigh in at about 32 ppm when sampled from the earth's crust. It is the 2nd. mineral of the 3 from the Lanthanide family of minerals and is considered a transition mineral. It is mildly radioactive with a very long half-life.
But first, we need to get the technical data out of the way. This mineral is controlled by the Amino Acid, Phenylalanine. The Codon Code is UUU and the Valence number comes in at +3. So it builds as it goes, unlike its partner, that goes both directions. What is interesting is that this mineral seems to have a limited use in the human diet. That is what all of the propaganda seems to indicate. However, it is the main ingredient in the main drug used to treat end-stage Kidney failure. The main role is to remove Phosphorus so that you don't get a Phosphorus build up in the blood. Now keep in mind that when used as a drug, it is at a much high concentration that is found in an everyday, normal diet for most everyone in the world outside of being cared for medically. Now even though it's known role is limited, it is used 36,356,923 times in the whole of the genetic coding. So even though it shows a limited use in humans, it has a long list of uses in the genetic coding and profiles, based on how many times it is used in the coding. Now to understand the role of this mineral a person would need to go and study out the mineral Phosphorus. I will avoid that discussion here and talk about it in the lecture on Phosphorus.
However, we can discuss the amino acid Phenylalanine. When we look at this one, we begin to see a huge picture.
So in light of this, we can see why it is used over 36 million times in the codon. This amino acid, and really by extension the associated mineral, are very critical players in a number of actions, some of which I am not even going to mention until later on in the discussion. In studying this out to document what I am saying about this mineral and amino acid, I find that beyond its basic form, combined with other substances, it is widely used in a number of drugs, mostly related to the brain and it's functioning. That list is almost too long to list here.
There is no legitimate dietary stand-alone supplement for this mineral. At least in its base form as found in nature. A pharmaceutical version is available and is known as Lathanum Carbonate. Anyway, normally, this basically has to be obtained through ingestion of food with a sufficient quantity and quality of this mineral. Food that is grown in the Monazite and Bastnasite sands/clays will likely provide you with enough of this mineral for normal use and functioning. However, the widespread dispersal of this mineral in the earth's crust would indicate that most plants would not show a deficiency of this mineral if the soil hasn't had a long history of crop cycles or in soils that have not been mined for this and other associated minerals. It is a complicated process to extract this mineral from the soil, as it is not a free-floating mineral.
This mineral has many industrial uses. It is used in making batteries with Toyota using the bulk of the mineral for battery purposes.
These batteries are used in the electric hybrid models. A Prius uses approximately 25 pounds of this mineral in each battery. So the worldwide use is a very large amount. Lanthanum is also used to make night vision goggles and flints in lighters.
In humans, a deficiency of this mineral will likely manifest its self in a Phenylalanine or Phosphorus related issue. However, the serious stuff will be covered later on in this discussion. Also, in humans, you will find this mineral assisting with the removal of free-floating calcium and free-floating Phosphorus. Now, this situation is caused by a lack of Yttrium. When Yttrium is lacking, calcium will fill in for Yttrium. Calcium is a very poor substitute for Yttrium, but none the less it tries to come to the rescue. Then that affects the phosphorus and calcium levels and ratios. Which leads us to a collection of brain issues with ones like Parkinson's, ALS, Alzheimer's, and MS to name a few. So in walking this thing back, the Lathanum mineral, either too much or not enough, will cause a condition of Yttrium deficiency or will at least be a factor in the deficiency Then that causes a long ripple effect down the line, including brain issues which many times won't even resemble the original situation, a Lathanum mineral problem. Now not only do we have issues related to the before mentioned problems, we will also find other issues with Magnesium, Nitrogen and as we will see more clearly in the mineral #62 lecture, Selenium. We have to stop this connection thing here or we will end up dancing all over the mineral field. perhaps you can begin to see how a lot of this stuff has many connections. The connections seem to appear as a genealogy chart and how the various people or in this case, minerals are related and interrelated. So itis safe to say that there is a reason why this mineral is used over 36 million times in the genetic codon. It has a long reach of influence. Does it ever!
This mineral has a fairly light molecular weight. It comes in at 138.91. So if it is in the soil, it should be in the plant and if in the plant, it will come over, or at least should, in all of the forms of essential oil extraction processes. When working with this mineral from an essential oil perspective, you would need to source an oil from a plant that is grown in an area that is not very acidic. When the soil experiences a high level of water, such as in high rainfall, it would leach the soil out of this mineral. So select an oil that would be grown in an area where you have moderate to lower amounts of rainfall. We are talking about maybe levels about 40 or so inches per year. So if you were to use an oil in a blend, that comes from an area of high rainfall or high crop cycle history or even a very low level of rainfall, then you would need to make sure you balance the blend with an oil or oils from an area that has moderate rainfall. Of course, if the soil is well balanced, then a farmed or even most wildcrafted oils should be fine. You would maybe consider this mineral in an oil for use with most things related to the Kidney and other wastewater removal parts of the body system. So you would select oils from a grouping that would likely have this mineral in it. This is a key point when working with a Kidney related issue.
OK> from this point on we are going to hit on a few points. One interesting thing that I find is that as you connect the dots and connect the associated minerals and amino acids, you end up with a very interesting picture. Here goes, in a chemical called Glyphosate, we have a direct association to Phosphorus and Phenylalanine. Here is what Glyphosate does in a plant. It causes uncontrolled cell growth. What is an uncontrolled growth of a cell? Cancer. So what is the process? Basically, the deal is that it blocks and interrupts these amino acids and minerals. So it causes a deficiency of these amino acids and minerals. So you can safely conclude that a lack of these ingredients, and in real simple form, the lack of Lanthanum will cause cancer. Now, what type of cancer will depend on the off balance of ratios and lack thereof types. But to say specifically, well, we have this mineral being used over 36 million times, so pick a number and start there for the type. But really simple, lack of this mineral, causes cancer. We see it in plants as simple as a pimple on the end of your nose. Now I know the story of the half-life or whole -life decay of the mineral. The evidence does not support the propaganda from the herbicide companies, but one must not forget that it doesn't matter. Because all it takes is exposure. Then the switch is triggered. The lack of this mineral will allow the switch that turns on cell growth and blocks the turning off of the switch that ends up leading to cancer. Other conditions will be caused by this mineral if found lacking. But normally, the lack isn't there, the blocking of its function is there and that is the problem. Anyway, on with the program. Lathanum is all over the town. We see it all over the brain and with brain issues, either directly or indirectly. Some nerve-related issues, too many to list and to talk about some of these related issues will just confuse the issue and is better left to be used in lectures about the other minerals.
This is a mineral that is not really talked about. Perhaps it is because of a lack of information on a drive-by basis. Perhaps it is because it can only be obtained from dietary sources and most people don't, in reality, know crap about dietary related matters or better what they do know is very limited. However, the real reason.. afraid of cancer. people can add up the numbers and people are so conditioned to be scared to death of cancer, that it paralyzes any rational thought about the actual causes and actual solutions. The most interesting thing in all of this is that in the most serious cancer cases, the main drug for treatment protocols is a mineral or a combination of minerals. Of which this mineral is a vital one for treatment protocols.
So here we have the base run down on this mineral. I hope it helps you in an overall understanding of this mineral and its role.
