Roger Taylor, PhD, BVSc, proposes that a little-known series of elements has the potential to improve the soil and increase crop yields, as well as boost the health of human and animal life

Ormus is a set of elementary substances, not previously known about, which have extraordinary beneficial effects on plant, animal and human life.

The most unarguable results come from the supplementation of Ormus on certain crops. A walnut tree for example, treated with the substance over several years, has grown to more than twice the size of untreated control trees. It is also producing six times the weight of walnuts, which are the size of tangerine oranges.

The story of Ormus begins in the late 70s, when a cotton farmer from Arizona, David Hudson, had complete quantitative elemental analysis done on his soil. The volcanic terrain in the region had unusual properties and the underlying rock was known to contain precious metals, but his analysts were puzzled to find a fraction that defied investigation: it had no metallic characteristics or chemical reactions.

Trials showed that the material reacted differently when it was heated or cooled: elements spontaneously vanished. After extending the heat to give the test material a ‘longer burn’, precious metals began to appear that were not there before.

David patented these substances and called them Orbitally Rearranged Mono-atomic Elements – Ormes for short – now referred to as Ormus. The findings clearly demanded further investigation, so he hired chemists to help solve the mystery. The results have now been written up in considerable detail in his patent for extracting Ormus in its purified form. He also gave a number of public lectures and it was from watching videos of these that I first learnt about it.

Ormus is present in all living matter, soils, waters and even the air. During the life of the Earth however, most of it has probably been washed into the sea, leaving soils and most fresh waters depleted, which explains why supplementation has such astounding effects.

My own experience using Ormus in controlled trials, has showed an almost double increase in my potato and carrot yields, 16 pounds of shelled broad beans from a single row, many carrots over one pound, and a beetroot that weighed two pounds and ten ounces.

Besides hugely increased productivity, other benefits include: greater resistance to pests, drought and cold; earlier maturation; longer shelf-life and an increased content of nutrients such as sugars, proteins, minerals and vitamins.

However, no article on the subject has ever appeared in any scientific journal. David’s claims are so challenging that I have even delayed writing about it in the hope of finding academic confirmation. While no official research appears to be underway, a group of scientists and lay people have been working on the subject for a number of years.

Without the benefit of funding or an official laboratory premises, they have managed to reproduce at least some of the claims. Their work, together with that of David’s, is summarised in a number of articles by researcher Barry Carter on his website There are also several online forums.

So what conclusions can be drawn so far? With this discovery, we are entering into a new and complex area but we are still low on the learning curve. Indeed it might be said that a whole new chapter in physics, chemistry and biology is being opened. It seems now beyond doubt that a number of precious (and some not so precious) metals, including copper and gold, can exist in a completely different state in which they are not metallic.

The world is already seeing serious food shortages and as our populations increase these will become much worse. By greatly enhancing the productivity of organic agriculture, Ormus could help convince authorities to move away from a genetically engineered and chemically assisted route, which is so destructive.

Ormus enables plants to make better use of minerals already present, and thus could be used to revitalise depleted soils. So little of the compound is required, it could be sprayed from the air over large areas, such as desert or degraded forest. Moreover, while complete purification is difficult and expensive, according to David’s patent, there are ways to make cruder but equally useful concentrates from many other sources. In particular, a process to extract it from sea water is so simple and cheap that anyone can do it, even with minimal laboratory facilities.

However, as the scientific aspects are so exotic, Ormus is unlikely to get academic respectability any time soon. And, since it is so easy to produce from sea water, it cannot be patented and profitably taken up by big corporations. Indeed, for this reason, they might well look upon it as a threat.

It is, therefore, up to us – the people; we need proper statistically conducted trials*. Only with these might academic and governmental institutions be fully persuaded to take notice. Could readers let me know of horticultural colleges, or otherwise, who might be willing to carry out some trials, for which I would be able to supply samples?
