lava flour

Recently I read an article by the company BioSolutions  about the increase in chronic diseases and cancers. I read the article in a sigh. The article was actually about mineral deficiency that causes chronic diseases and cancer in humans and animals. I wrote an email to this company BIOSOLUTIONS  and asked if I could use this information to write a blog for the vegetable garden. I was allowed to use their information, thank you for this. Compared to 100 years ago, the increase is spectacular. We live longer because infectious diseases, infant mortality and death in childbirth are well controlled and many lives can be saved in life-threatening situations. Notwithstanding these great advances, chronic diseases continue to increase year after year. We live longer, but less imperfectly. What is going on?

How is that possible? Our food has never been so well controlled!

The explanation is that they are diseases of affluence. It is strange that when one has enough money to buy quality food, one then decides to buy food that is of even worse quality than when one is poor. It is not the case that people used to live very healthy. There was dangerous asbestos everywhere, many working conditions were unhealthy, sulphite was invariably mixed in minced meat, there were no fridges and freezers, there was a lot of brining, our food was not checked as thoroughly as it is now, etc. In other words. we now theoretically live much healthier.


The inventor of the fertilizer Justus von Liebig, 20 years after he invented the fertilizer, said he was wrong and said: “Modern agriculture is being destroyed by the overexploitation of the soil.” In addition, fertilizer is a salt. When you sprinkle salt on a snail, it deflates and dies. Fertilizer in the soil is a mass murder of micro-organisms. Many do not survive these salts on their delicate skin. This is very disadvantageous for the crops, because the harmful micro-organisms survive this better. Plants need these beneficial micro-organisms.

our soils are depleted of minerals

A farmer spreads less than 10 minerals as fertiliser, while plants, humans and animals need 60 minerals in a good ratio. The more than 50 minerals disappear little by little from the soil and are never replenished. The result of this is that the soils become more and more depleted of many minerals and trace elements every year.

Double Nobel Prize winner Linus Pauling was the discoverer of the main reason for almost every disease: "Almost all diseases are caused by shortages." The average age used to be shorter, but the increase in the number of chronic diseases is disproportionate. Each of the 60 minerals has a function in our body and causes minor to severe problems when there are deficiencies.

The law of nature: unhealthy plants must be cleaned up

Growing healthy crops on depleted soils that are also poor in soil life is not successful. According to the laws of nature, unhealthy plants must be cleaned up and are therefore in fact not suitable for human consumption. Nature has a whole arsenal of useful cleaners. They are called harmful insects, fungi and diseases. In order to save these crops from being destroyed, a whole range of poisons have been invented. After these crops have been found unfit for consumption by nature, given a shower of toxins, they are ready for human or animal consumption.

Mineral-poor soils = mineral-poor crops = empty food

If there are no minerals in the soil, then there are no minerals in the crops. Crops need minerals to be healthy and to make vitamins. That is why there are far too few vitamins in our diet.


Anyone who eats such empty food for a long time, even if he eats a lot of "healthy vegetables and fruit", will develop chronic shortages of vitamins and the equally important minerals and therefore also chronic diseases.

If you want to buy something, such as a bicycle, you mainly look at two things: the price and the quality. Only with food this is not necessary, as long as it is tasty and cheap. A farmer only grows crops for maximum yield. He cannot do otherwise, because no buyer is interested in food quality.

Lava flour is the best soil improver + by far the cheapest means

In the 1890s, Julius Hensel wrote his famous book: “Bread from Stones”. This book is about the fact that plants mainly need minerals from rocks and not fertilizers. He was also a staunch opponent of fertilizers.
We've all heard that lava soils are the most fertile in the world, but we don't act on this knowledge. It contains ALL 60 necessary minerals and trace elements in the right proportion and improves the structure of all soils. By scattering lava flour you also get this fertility in your soil. It's that simple. Every farmer should be required to spread this.
Lava flour contains a lot of lime and makes liming unnecessary and is also much higher quality. Be careful with the use of lime. The saying goes: “rich farmers poor sons”. An additional advantage is that when you use lava flour, you can halve the fertilization.

Lava flour ensures a bigger, tastier and healthier harvest

How can you optimally grow plants if you encourage them to grow with fertilizers, but they do not have all the raw materials available to them in sufficient quantities? The plant will follow suit, but it will not be able to fully utilize its genetic potential and thus perform below its capabilities. As a result, it is not as healthy, smaller, less tasty and more susceptible to insects and diseases. Despite all these benefits, lava flour is still very unknown.


To grow plants well, it is not the fertilizer that is most important, but the minerals and then the soil life and only then the fertilization.

This is such an important story that I took it almost verbatim from their article I got their permission again for this and it would be nice if you all go and buy lava flour at

They also have good bird guano fertilizer that I have been using for years, of course I have also been using lava flour for years, which is why I am so healthy because I do get those 60 minerals. I say with a wink!

This was a long blog with few photos but one of the most important.

See you next time!
