Mineral - Rubidium

Rubidium is a mineral that presents its self in a different role-playing part as it applies to the biological functioning on an overall basis. In the way, that it contributes to the overall scheme is that it acts as a startup to almost all DNA to the mRNA sequences. So instead of acting on some organ or tissue or even some specific part of the body, we find it involved in the beginning phases of the DNA as it transitions in the mRNA material and this leads to direct connections with the chromosome activity, which I will cover later on. Rubidium is associated with the amino acid Methionine and carries the AUG sequencing pattern. It is used 17,323,574 times in the codon sequence. It also carries a +1 valence number, has a molecular weight of 85.47 and recognized by the symbol of Rb. It is silvery-white in color. 

Rubidium is found in 2 isotopes, one being slightly radioactive and that consists of about 28% of the mineral out there and the other 72% is not radioactive. Needless to say, the non-radioactive is the one most sought after.  However, the level of radioactivity is only enough that it would take about 110 days of exposure to expose a photographic film.  So not much when compared to an X-ray which takes only a few seconds. So low enough to not to worry about, but enough to be able to be used in certain industrial settings. On a year in and year out basis, there is only about 4 to 5 tons of it produced per year worldwide. When heated it vaporizes and most of the industrial use for it is used in relationship to vacuum tubes and as a getter in their production and used in the production of specialty glass and photocells. Another interesting factor with Rubidium is that it is used in certain types of alarms.  These are the types of alarms that will use a beam of light to create a circuit and then when that circuit is broken, the alarm is set off.  So here we go again with a mineral directly providing for a role in the conducting of electricity. This is another one of those minerals that act as a conductor or plays a major role in moving electricity from one point to another, inside of the body. 

Overall, this mineral is found in the earth's crust at various levels at the 40 to 75 ppm range. It seems to follow a pattern of the more dense and solid the substance is, the higher the ppm levels. For example, in shale and hard rock, it is upwards of 90 to 150 ppm.  In sandstone, 60 ppm and in seawater, 0.12 ppm.  In living objects, it is found in the 15 to 25 ppm range. But when it gets into the human body, the higher levels are found in the liver and the lowest in the bones. One of the big dangers in getting too much Rubidium is that it can replace electrolyte function of potassium in the body, which is interesting in that it is found in seawater at such low levels, perhaps the lowest levels of any measured substance, absent there being none. But aside from the potassium-electrolyte issue, the toxicity is very low and even then you just end up with the typical symptoms of stomach ache, vomiting, etc.  Where ever we find Rubidium in the ores, soils, etc., we will also find mineral Strontium. So again we see the association with another mineral and sharing some of the same functions, or acting on the different parts of the body, as that other mineral, yet also serving a role of providing functions that could be considered a mirror type function. A mirror function would be a function that is necessary but on the other side of the road, so to speak, which provides for a balancing act of sorts. 

Another connection that we should also look at is that of Methionine. Methionine is not synthesized in humans and animals, so they have to obtain it through dietary sources. Whereas plants and some other organisms do the synthesis of this amino acid.  But in order for the Methionine to function, you need to have Rubidium present.  Then as part of this process, you will have to have Aspartic acid to be present as well as most B vitamins and some Lysine mixed in there as well. The whole process is very complicated and really not necessary to know the specifics, other than to just have some of these names to be dropped in here and there so that you know that it is a complicated process and it involves all of these things. There is one of those big words that need to be looked at in relationship to Rubidium is Homocysteine levels.  Homocysteine is an amino acid which is biosynthesized from Methionine.  When this amino acid level is high then you are at risk for a long list of diseases, like heart disease, strokes, etc., Neural tube defects are also involved here. It is used as an indicator and measured so as to indicate a number of issues. However, one thing that it does indicate is the level of Chromosome Damage.  Which when it gets close to that 35% to 40% level, those types of numbers will indicate a high level of Chromosome Damage and that is at the point of perishing, kicking the bucket, so to speak.  So how does all of this stuff tie in with Rubidium? We know that Rubidium is directly involved in the regulation and production of healthy DNA, mRNA and Chromosome actions. When you don't have the sufficient levels of Rubidium and with the mineral functioning properly, which involves all of the stuff that I mentioned in this paragraph, you have damaged, broken or faulty Chromosomes and too much of that stuff and you die. 

As we progress further with this mineral, we see a direct connection to Selenium with the Selenium acting as a controlling mineral.  So we have Selenium controlling Methionine, and it controls Rubidium. But wait, we need to see the further connections, this really is one big vicious circle, but a nice neat circle, when completed. Since Selenium has strong connections and active interactive ties to Carbon, Nitrogen, and Oxygen, which those are the main minerals in the B complex vitamins, we see Rubidium being the connection and doing the heavy lifting as it pertains to the whole DNA, RNA. In essence the factor in making sure that the Chromosomes are not corrupted by properly connecting the long list of minerals, vitamins, and electricity.  

Essential Oil Connection. 
Since we have learned that Rubidium seems to play a vital role at the basic DNA and RNA levels, we need to look at that aspect to determine which oils will fit in here. One thing that is learned in a lab setting is this, and I think this a significant key here, is that certain viruses will encode their genetic information using the RNA genome. In simple terms, they stick their information in during the transition, sort of corrupt the message so to speak. So the key here is to select virus whacking oils. Now it is necessary to use the proper amounts. Because too little will not do the job. Too much and you flood the sites with too much and it messes up the whole room. You need the right amount. Here is why, since the virus is a foreign aspect to the DNA-RNA function, the natural products will tend to with the body and allow the body to use their components to clean up the corrupted material or bad messages. It assists the body to have second chance to get the right message through. Am I doing OK in keeping a very complicated discussion in simple speak? Stay with me, OK? Dill oil, I am not sure if it matters if you use the seed or weed parts, as ether will do a good job. But you would likely have better results using the seed oil as the Rubidium tends to gather into the seeds at a higher ppm than into the leaf.  But I like to use a blend of the weed and seed, then you get the whole plant. In some cases, you can use the whole plant with oils, such as Dill Weed and Dill Seed and end up with an oil that is greater than the sum of the two individual parts. In many other oils, you do not end up with a good mix. I know of some EO companies that cut their formulas with a leaf oil from the same plant with the bark or bud oils for example. It doesn't work out as good. But Dill is one of those that by doing so, will help it to work out very good. Another oil that really knocks a virus on its tail is Ravensara. This will help as well. The country of origin is important here as the Madagascar oil seems to not have the corruption of pollution as does other sourced Ravensara oil potentially has. Environmentally related corruptions for Rubidium needs to be controlled for as it is light and is easily taken up and transported as is Strontium. Remember they go traveling together all of the time. Then the next set of oils to consider using is oils for inflammation. That list of oils is far too long to even begin to list here, so look in any of the essential oil propaganda put out by most companies and even individuals and you will likely find one of those suggested that will work for you. Another group of oils that will help with this issue, the issue of dealing with obtaining some Rubidium will come from the Cinnamon Oils, that would include almost every variety of Cinnamon, mainly in the bark versions of those oils.  Another group of oils that will help is the Grapefruit and Orange oils. They contain a moderate amount of Rubidium on a ppm basis. Now all of these oils that I have listed tend to have either a direct or indirect effect on the core issues of influencing the whole DNA, RNA and Chromosome function. So as you can see you have a long list of oils that can work with the Rubidium mineral situation. They will either provide for some or provide for assisting, usually by unlocking any action potential of Rubidium that is locked up, at least within a certain field.  There are some other factors related to the locking up and displacement of Rubidium and those will be discussed in the next section. 

Now one of the more interesting factors here is that some of the individual components in the oils can cause some form of Chromosomal aberrations, it is usually not a concern when a correct dosage is used. One of the little secret aspects here is that of the short half-life of essential oils. They don't have enough time to actually affect CA, (Chromosomal aberrations), in a negative way. But when used as a whole oil, then the main concerns are not there. So under this concept, we can effect positive change, then disappear, before any damage is done. This is why the oils can be used without a lot of concern when used in correct dosages. Now when they are used too heavily, then the oils aren't processed, staying longer before dispersing to the point of no action. Then some damage can occur. But before a corruption of the Chromosome takes place, you need to have several mutations before it becomes toxic to the point of causing something like cancer. This is why the oils that I have listed can affect a positive change when used in the right dosages. Not only will they disperse off at the within the appropriate time frame before any negative action potential is manifested, they will also leave the Rubidium mineral at the site for use therein as a useable form of the mineral.  

Further Discussion and Summary.
Rubidium can be used in different forms. The mineral is very easily changed from a soft solid form to a vapor form. It does not take very much heat for this action to take place. So this type of mineral can be obtained through actions other than ingestion.  I have searched through the essential oil literature to find some definitive studies that could be used directly in support of the whole DNA-RNA sequence. There just is not any there. There is a number that dances around the issue and for the most part focus on the dangers of breaking down, causing mutations, etc. But not any real good stuff on the protection and rebuilding aspect. So the suggested ideas are somewhat coming from the supporting views and not direct views. However, the oils that are suggested to work with this issue are based on known cases that have been diagnosed and by the use of the oils having produced positively measurable results.  Now let's move on to the material that comes from the natural solutions side of the road.

Rubidium plays an important role in many processes of the body. One such action is the synthesis of an enzyme called glucoamylase.  Without Rubidium the proper absorption of glucose won't happen and thus leading to the potential of developing diabetes. Then you have the Iron issue. Without this mineral, you have issues with Iron. Rubidium regulates the flow of Iron into the bloodstream. Once the proper amount is achieved, then it acts to block further absorption of Iron. When you have the situation of too much Iron, it is believed that you run the risk of developing certain types of cancers. As those cancers tend to feed off of high levels of Iron. So it will, in simple terms, regulate the flow of Iron and the absorption of Iron into the bloodstream. In other studies, they have shown or believed to show that Rubidium is an excellent tool to protect against or even prevent cancer. The studies that were done on people that had obtained their food from soils rich in volcanic materials. These soils are rich in caesium, potassium, and rubidium. In follow-up studies, it was observed that once these people began to eat supermarket food, read; highly processed food, which is low in these minerals, especially Rubidium, their cancer rates soon mirrored the general population, which was 1 in 4. Before their cancer rates were 1 in 100. These people had a high level of fruits and vegetables in their diet and the main common fruit among all of them was apricots. Not only the apricot fruit its self but the pits as well.  Among other foods that tend to rich in Rubidium are as follows; Rhubarb, Beets (all varieties), Spinach, Cauliflower, Cashews, Coconut. Stinging Nettle Leaf, Radish, Peanut, Plum, Knotweed (all varieties), Bananas, Bilberry and Parsley. I think you can see some common threads there. How many times have you been told to eat your Spinach, it will give you... Iron. Remember, the Rubidium regulates Iron. Almost everyone one of these foods have a similar story but what is not known is that they all have the Rubidium connection. 

One thing that I haven't mentioned is the Potassium connection in any detail. This is one of the more important aspects. What happens here is that Ribidium will displace Potassium. so a proper amount of Rubidium is necessary, too much then you run the risk of displacing potassium.  How many times have you heard of the necessity of replacing potassium because of some activity? Only to have the person take potassium and not really recover? Yeah, it is not really potassium but rubidium that is the issue. But Iron is also involved here, because iron many times has to be replaced, only to find that taking Iron in some form doesn't do the job. Perhaps the problem really is rubidium, not enough rubidium to regulate iron in the bloodstream.  So as we look at this mineral we can indeed see it as a major regulating mineral of many functions of the body and not just at the DNA level.  You might say that Rubidium is like this; Do you want to talk to the person in charge or the person that makes things happen and knows what is really going on?  Rubidium is the mineral that knows what is going on and makes things happen. It doesn't really care who gets the credit. I believe that you can safely say that Rubidium is not a psychopath. It is a clam giant that walks with a soft step and doesn't need to carry a club.  

With that, I hope you have learned something about Rubidium and it's role. Thank you for your interest.
