CALCIUM: More important than you think.

CALCIUM: Let’s look at the most common mineral in the human body. 85% of the total mineral is calcium. There’s 147 different diseases you can get from a calcium deficiency. We’ll just go over the top 10 when it comes to the number of people affected and the amount of money involved.


Let’s look at Osteoporosis, the number 10 killer of adults in the United States. Remember, 75% of those over the age of 65 who fracture a hip or leg bone don’t live 90 days. Also, it’s the most horrible disease when it comes to human misery and dollars expended. Osteoporosis. Think of the special vans, and the lift gates, and the ramps and the elevators, the special plumbing in homes and public buildings. Special parking places, wheelchairs and walkers and canes. Think of the beds and the chairs with little electric motors to lift you up when you can’t stand up by yourself. Physical therapists, joint replacement surgery, pharmaceuticals, doctor’s visits. We’re talking billions and billions of dollars for nothing more than a calcium deficiency disease. Now as horrible a disease as Osteoporosis is, in human beings, we don’t have Osteoporosis in animals because we don’t have Blue Cross, Blue Shield, major medical hospitalization, Medicare and Medicaid to pay for non-essential surgical treatments for mineral deficiency, we’ve learned that by putting animals who are weaned off their mother’s milk onto 10 cents of calcium as soon as they are weaned, they won’t get arthritis or Osteoporosis. It’s amazing how that works.

Receding gums:

Dentists and dental hygienists will tell you to floss and brush after every meal. If you believe that works I have some ocean-front property in Montana to sell you. If you have receding gums or periodontitis, gingivitis, pyorrhea, loose teeth, bridges and plates, you have Osteoporosis in the facial bones and jaw bones. We don’t get receding gums in animals even though they don’t floss or brush, and that’s because we have cured the Osteoporosis problem in animals. ·


85% of all arthritis is called wear and tear arthritis. Osteo arthritis, degenerative arthritis, ankleospinalitis(?). These things are nothing more than Osteoporosis of the joint ends of the bones. ·

Hypertension/High Blood Pressure:

As you learned, has nothing to do with salt, or salt restriction. 85% of hypertension not related to kidney disease, which is most of them, not related to kidney disease, is, in fact, a calcium deficiency.


Is not a deficiency of sleeping pills, halcyon or barbiturates, it’s usually a deficiency of calcium.

Kidney stones/bone spurs/heel spurs/calcium deposits:

Again, the medical profession has the malignant dumb belief that these things are due to too much calcium in your diet, try to give up calcium. When, in fact, you only get kidney stones/bone spurs/heel spurs and calcium deposits when you have raging osteoporosis. You actually need more calcium, more magnesium, not less.

Cramps and twitches:

You most likely  have a calcium deficiency.


The University of California, San Diego, 8 years ago now, came out and said that 85% o the emotional and physical stuff of PMS can be relieved by taking 3 times the RDA of calcium.

Low back pain:

Usually has nothing to do with disk problems. You know you have heard of people, maybe even yourself who have had disk surgery for back pain, and after the surgery still had the pain, maybe even worse. Because back pain is not caused by disk problems.

If you have a disk problem, you can have numbness and tingling, maybe even paralysis if it’s very severe, but disk problems do not cause pain. If you have low back pain, the odds are you have cramps and spasms in the large muscle group, inside and outside your lower back. These can sublexate(?), or hit the line in your vertebrae and be uncomfortable, cause a lot of pain. You also have bone spurs, calcium deposits, arthritis, osteoporosis.These are the things that usually cause low back pain.

Unfortunately many Americans  will spend between $25,000 and $250,000 and voluntarily undergo 5 to 10 surgical procedures for nothing more than the top ten calcium deficiencies. In any other industry that would be fraud and they would be shut down.

 Functions of Calcium :
1. Major function is to build bones and teeth.
2. Reduces insomnia.
3. Needed for acid/base balance.
4. Balances potassium and sodium for muscle tone.
5. Aids in regulation of heartbeat.
6. Assists in the clotting of blood.
7. Aids muscle contraction, nerve transmission.

Deficiency Symptoms of Calcium
1. Stunted Growth.
2. Calcium tetany - leg cramps.
3. Numbness, tingling in arms and legs.
4. Children, Rickets; Adults, Osteomalcia.
5. Nervousness, heart palpitations, slow pulse.
6. Excessive menstruation - lengthy menstruation.

What should I do?

Supplementing calcium is a good idea but there is a spectrum of nutrients that makes calcium absorbable. Makesure you are taking a good multi-vitamin and minineral suppliment. In addition I would suggest Kefir and Bananas.
Yes believe it or not, banana help. Bananas help your body to absorb calcium and other vital nutrients that promote healthy bones.
Here’s how:
This tropical fruit is extremely rich in a compound called fructooligosaccharides, which nourishes the probiotic-bacteria in your colon, allowing for an increase in the production of digestive enzymes and vitamins that help you absorb important bone-strengthening nutrients, such as calcium and magnesium.

What’s more, green bananas contain one other key component, in addition to fructooligosaccharides. They contain resistant starch (RS) which  is highly fermentable by microbiota in the colon, resulting in the production of short chain fatty acids (SCFA’s) which makes them TWICE as effective at absorbing calcium and other nutrients for your bones.  The bottom line: bananas, especially the green ones, are excellent for your bones and your gut.. And it doesn’t hurt that they are delicious, too.
