"I always get shin splints after about a min of skipping, any ideas where I go wrong?"

That could be a need for trace minerals.

Most of us get a somewhat decent amount of iron and calcium, but then we can't utilize our nutrients due to lack of trace minerals.

Do you eat any seaweeds?
High-mineral sea salt?
Drink wheatgrass?

Each of those is high in different kinds of trace minerals.

I notice when my trace mineral content is low, my fingernails start breaking off easily within a couple weeks.

Also, Vitamin D is required to get calcium from the gut to the bloodstream. Then something I have not looked into too much yet, called "Vitamin F" is needed to get calcium from the bloodstream to the tissue. Skin, muscles and bones all need volumes of calcium.

I do not suggest calcium supplementation, but rather looking for foods high in calcium because so many vitamins are required to utilize the minerals we take in.

What brings you here? What are you thoughts? Do you consider yourself a raw foodist? Approximately how much of your diet is raw? Do you consider yourself healthy? What would you like to see more of on this blog? Will you be back? Is this too many questions?
