The History of OceanSolution™
is well understood that there are radical health differences between
plants and animals found in the sea and those on land. In the ocean,
life thrives on a precisely balanced diet of inorganic nutrients
while our landlocked environment has been increasingly unable to
provide plants and animals with the full compliment of minerals
necessary for health and longevity.
In Sea Energy Agriculture,
Dr. Maynard Murray makes the following analogy:
“If a soil is
like a mine with its myriad of elements, then whenever man tills
it, plants crops and in other ways engages in farming, he is for
all practical purposes engaged in the business of mining. Like a
miner, the farmer breaks the earth with digging tools, but instead
of dynamite, he plants seeds to loosen the minerals and elements
from their holding matrix. And finally, he carts away his minerals
in the form of food rather than ore.”
Perhaps the most disturbing aspect
of this mining analogy is that farmers, through conventional
fertilizer strategies, often only replace three to six of the total
number of elements removed from the soil. The failure to understand
the importance of all elements and their role in providing complete,
balanced nutrition to plants and animals has resulted in an
abundance of food that is great in bulk but low in vitality.
What’s the Answer?
Ocean water holds the perfect
balance essential for sustaining life. Quantitative
analysis of the elements in our blood and those in unadulterated
seawater has revealed a strikingly similar profile, including a
substantial presence of sodium chloride. It is interesting to note
that salt, when in proper balance with other nutrients, is actually
beneficial to plant growth.
Enter the Doctor
Beginning in 1936, Dr. Murray began
his life long research in sea energy agriculture — how to get the
perfect chemistry (consistency, balance and proportion) of the ocean
back into the depleted soils. He felt this was the key to proper
nutrition, a stronger immune system and a longer, healthier life.
Dr. Murray undertook a variety of experiments to determine the
secrets of the sea, often wondering why land-based animals suffered
from so many forms of chronic disease while sea animals generally
enjoy vigorous health.
The difference can be attributed to
the superior nutritional qualities at each stage in the oceanic food
chain: “a cubic foot of seawater sustains many times more living
organisms than its equivalent of soil. Seawater is Earth’s most
ancient natural solution…as liquid crystalloid, all Atomic Table
elements are in a solution of consistent balance and proportion.”
Dr. Murray began experimenting with
seawater as a plant fertilizer, using sea solids (after evaporation)
because he was unable to obtain non-toxic coastal ocean water. After
a number of control trials and experiments with sea solids, he found
that plants and trees flourished without the need for fertilizers
and pesticides. Beginning in the 1950s, for more than 30 years, the
doctor became intimately involved in hydroponics farming in
southwest Florida – built a small farm and experimented further
with various plants growing in a solution of sea solids.
Dr. Murray began his trials with
sea solids after he started with coastal water that became
increasingly toxic and unusable. After some time,
OceanGrownTM shifted from
using sea solids (in crystallized form) back to an improved,
non-toxic OceanSolution™ suitable for all plants. Other benefits of
this improved solution includes a proper balance that stays in
