NAIL PROBLEMS: Avoiding salt most often settles this condition. Salt dries cells and interferes with mineral and fat utilization and the process of building nails. Ridges in the nails mainly result from mineral deficiencies. See Mineral Deficiency, page 291.
Drinking fresh raw milk within 2 hours after eating raw meat helps mineral assimilation and utilization, and consequently this condition.
Topically, making a balm of 5 parts unheated-above-96º Fahrenheit fermented coconut oil or stone-pressed olive oil and 1 part unsalted raw butter, when available, and rubbing it into the nails 2-3 times daily is helpful.
