The Calcium Conspiracy

Calcium is an essential mineral to the body. The body’s bones and teeth are primarily comprised of Calcium.

Calcium is the fifth most abundant element in the human body and occurs mainly in the bone. The body requires calcium ions for the transmission of nerve impulses, muscle contraction, blood coagulation, cardiac functions, and other processes. It is a component of extracellular fluid and of soft tissue cells.

In the United States dairy products are the major dietary sources of this element. The daily dietary allowances recommended by the Federal Food and Nutrition Board vary from 360 mg for infants to 1200 mg for women 15 to 18 years of age. Only around one-third of the calcium ingested is actually absorbed.

Most of us think of the color white when calcium is mentioned. This is because we are programmed to believe that dairy products are what will deliver the mineral to our bodies. Instead of white, start thinking of calcium is green. Calcium phosphate is only found in plants and primarily green plants!

Avoid white-colored sources of calcium, like dairy or calcium supplements. These are not sourced organically and can contain synthetic hormones. Stick with natural forms of Calcium instead.

Dairy Products and Disease

With all the dairy products Americans consume, especially females, we shouldn’t be faced with any diseases pertaining to lack of calcium. However, America leads the world in incidences of osteoporosis.

This could be because we are consuming the wrong kind of calcium. Our bodies need calcium phosphate, which is completely digestible and absorbable. This type of calcium is derived from plants. Most of us get the animal sourced calcium which include:

  • Calcium carbonate
  • Calcium lactate
  • Calcium citrate
  • Calcium gluconate

Natural Sources of Calcium Phosphate

Calcium phosphate is readily found in nature through plants. This is a completely natural source that is most beneficial to the body. Plants contain this mineral include:

  • Moringa
  • Comfrey
  • Oatstraw
  • Horsetail
  • Nettle
  • Spirulina
  • Alfalfa
  • Red Raspberry Leaf
  • Spinach Leaf
  • Chlorella

Adding these calcium-rich foods to your diet is an easy way to boost health and get the calcium your body needs.

I'm really interested in this cayenne pepper, and planning on using it. Please give me your thoughts!

    Q: Is it possible that the Headache and Pain formula that my mother has currently been on since June of this year could be causing her to have internal bleeding. She is peeing brown at times. Her blood work came back fine. Her kidney are functioning normally. I wonder if there is something that I am giving her to cause this. Currently she is on your Headache and Pain formula, Calcium Formula, Nerves formula, Joint formula, MSM formula, and CNS formula. Everything is normal except for the brown looking urine she has developed for over a month now and it occurs in the morning. Do you know what could be causing this? Am I giving her too many herbs at one time? Please let me know your thoughts. Thank you, Dherbs.com. I appreciate it.

    A:

    No, not at all! Herbs don't cause problems. They help heal them! The morning piss is usually the most toxic one, releasing the toxins and poisons that have been broken down at night during sleep. This is normal and is a sign her body is normalizing itself. There's nothing to worry about. There never is! Her body is healing itself!

    Q: Dasani water, if I remember correctly, was banned from the U.K. It contains salt as well as potassium chloride. Essentia contains calcium chloride, as well as sodium bicarbonate, magnesium sulfate, dipotassium phosphate. Are all the ingredients in Essentia safe? One would have do an independent test on the water. Dasani is crap and I no longer drink Essentia but it would be my brand of choice of bottled water if I was to purchase water again.

    A:

    Personally I have an alkaline-antioxidant water machine (Neptune brand) that produces alkaline, antioxidant, oxygenate, mineralized water that is made in Asia.

    Q: Hi D, I began the FULL BODY DETOX this AM - Sun.13th. In the past I have experienced high blood pressure (BP) in about the 130/88-95 range. I have personally chosen not to take prescription meds for this but instead to lower it naturally. I have been taking Ultimate Omega, CoQ-10 (100mg), Magnesium, Super Calcium (1200mg)and Kyolic (6x day). I thought to monitor my BP while on this cleanse. I took my first reading @ 6:50 (164/95) pulse 66. Took second reading @ 9:45 (175/101) p- 66. By taking the herbs will this cause my BP to rise? what might be the cause of this and what recommondations might you be able to share with me. Also, I have not been taking my above pills while cleansing - not sure if I was to or stick strictly to the cleanse.

    A:

    Your BP is self-regulating itself so numbers will fluctuate. Don't panic or worry! Trust in your body's natural healing process! With healing it's Ordo Ab Chao: order (stability) out of chaos! And by all means strictly stick to the cleanse! You''ll be fine!

    Q: For the pass few days I have notice that when I bend my right arm at the elbow there feels like a slight feeling of displacement, if that's what I could call it (it's not bending smoothly like the left arm) there is no pain, I was just wondering what it could be. I don't recall hitting my elbow against anything. I'm 51 a vegan, and I take at least 1000mg of calcium a day. Any recommendations on what this might be would be appreciated.

    A:

    Sounds like your body is talking to you. Joint problems usually convey the message that you are too rigid in some area of your life and need to bend and become pliant or loose or yielding (Taoism). Think about this and make the connection for only you know about your life and how you are. Remember: pain is a sensor! It conveys a message!

    Q: I am 7 months pregnant with just a few symptoms (sciatica, low blood pressure, and change in appetite). So far, I have been doing pretty well. I take your pre-natal and calcium herbs. My fear is that I have no desire to eat vegetables. I only want fruit. Meat turns my stomach so I stay clear of it. I have just started gaining weight (3 pounds). What do you advise regarding the vegetables, low blood pressure, and sciatica?

    A:

    In place of vegetables try taking 6 capsules of our ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD formula. For sciatica, try our NERVES FORMULA (also get massage and see a chiropractic). For low blood pressure, take CARDIO-VASCULAR FORMULA. For change in appetite, just go with the flow. Trust your body's natural inclination to change. You'll be fine. If you feel it's necessary, please schedule a consultation.
