Minerals=>Trace-Element=>Nickel

In the Body Nickel interacts with Cobalt, Vitamin-B12, Vitamin-B15, Vitamin-C & Vitamin-E. Nickel, though Trace Element but is considered Essential for Human health. Spinal Segment T4, is Neurologically Linked to Nickel & Cobalt and controls their mutual ratio in the body. Nickel is eliminated from our System via Faeces-Urine & Sweat. Total amount of Nickel in an Adult Human Body ranges around 8-10 mg. Role of Nickel in Human Body:

  • Too less and would result in Vasodilation of Left Coronary Arteries (Thus resulting in Low Blood Pressure), and a bit too much would result in Vasoconstriction of Coronary Arteries (Thus resulting in Increased Blood Pressure) (Interestingly, Cobalt would have the similar effect on Right Coronary Arteries),
  • Nickel (along with Vitamin-C) is beneficial for Liver Cirrhosis, Hypo-adrenalism, Improves-Maintains Insulin Production(Lipids-Fats Metabolism),
  • Interacts with Nucleic Acids in The Body (Essential Constituent of DNA & RNA),
  • Has a role to Play in Hormones & Cell Membrane Metabolism…

Rich Source of Nickel:  

No Daily Recommended value has been set for this heavy Element. The Upper Limit (UL) has been set at 1 mg/Day.

Plant Sources:           Oats, Barley, Buckwheat, Lentils, Nuts (Hazelnuts), Peas, Beans, Corn, Hemp Seeds, Legumes…

Fruit Sources:            Bananas, Pears…

Animal Sources:        Oysters…

Nutritional Imbalance of Nickel (& Associated Interacting Minerals – Cobalt, Vitamin-B12, Vitamin-B15, Vitamin-C & Vitamin-E) leads (or could lead) to:

  • Cardiac Disorders,
  • Cerebral (Intellectual)-Neurological-Anxiety related Problems…

The above problems are actually happening due too little-too much Nickel (Vasodilation & Vasoconstriction).

Nickel Toxicity (Effects):

  • Allergies – Asthma,
  • Cardiac Disorders (Including Angina),
  • Carcinogenic in the form of Nickel Carbonyl (Cancers of Sinus, Throat, Lungs etc.),
  • Skin Allergies – Dermatitis-Itching-Burning-Rashes-Redness…

My Research on Ancient (But Highly Intelligent & Advanced) Studies-Ayurveda & So Called Modern Studies (!!) has brought me literally back from Dead! Quit my sailing job in 2009 due Serious Medical Conditions (Severe Vision Loss, Severe Haemorrhoids, Severe Depression...), But few incidences (Rajiv Dixit CD's, Fatal Ailments Getting Cured at High End Ayurveda Ashrams, Khongress Leaders Going to Ayurveda Ashram!!!!!!!) Prompted me towards 'Dedicated & Devoted Studies of The Greatest (Ancient-Original) Medical Science-Ayurveda'.
