Silica and the Microbe’s Kiss
This is a synopsis of an article by Charles Walters in this past June’s AcresUSA magazine. (btw….please join and support this organization. They are the driving cutting edge force behind minerals in our soils and food. ). The article is primarily about a product from
Charles Walters wrote the Olree’s book “Minerals for the Genetic Code”, so his articles heavily draw on Olree’s book. (Walter’s papers are a little hard to read as they jump around…..if parts of these notes aren’t in dept enough it’s because the information was missing in the article. I tried to keep this really complete so anyone not getting the acres newsletters can follow the article totally)
The key point is that microbes put silica into the form we need to utilize it well.
“ Mineral silica is found in its amorphous state and in crystalline form in such abundance that , as an old Irish saying has it, “it isn’t worth much, or strangers would have taken it away years ago.” Organic silica is of a different strip. It has one or more atoms of carbon associated with hydrogen in its molecular structure. It is absolutely essential in all living matter – plants, animals and human beings. Research reveals that it is found in significant amounts in cartilage, in the walss of blood vessels and in glands and organs – the thymus, adrenals, livr, spleen, pancreas, you name it.
LeRibault’s own words are well wroth quoting:” With age, the amount present in the body dwindles irreversibly, since the human system is incapable of transforming the mineral silica ingested from food and drink into organic silica.” The human organism cannot absorb inorganic minerals without the intervention of microorganisms, an observation hinted at by Maynard Murray’s vision of the ocean blessing the sand (
In 1957 Norbert Duffaut, an organic chemist at the

(my note….this stuff isn’t cheap…..around $70 for a month’s supply. It might be possible to brew a similar mixture using an inoculant that’s really broad based like effective microorganisms (also called EM) in a mixture with a high silica medium like horsetail.)
