More Calcium Could Mean More Pain and Sickness (Are you taking too much?)

You may have been lead to believe calcium is necessary for strong bones. And it is. But because of our modern diet, you may be getting too much. And that is bad news because excess calcium can cause:

  • Kidney and gallstones
  • Arterial plaque
  • Bone spurs
  • Calcium deposits in tissues other than bones
  • Brain cell dysfunction, brain shrinkage and dementia
  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
  • Hypertension
  • Problem Pregnancies

If that’s news to you, it is not your fault…

calc3Nearly all of our doctors and most of us have bought into this “Calcium Lie,” hook, line and sinker. As a result we’re led to believe that unless we get loads of calcium, our bones will break and crumble to powder. It’s not true. It’s never been true and basic science taught in every university in the world shows us the error of this belief system.

The truth is calcium is only one of at least 12 trace minerals that build strong bones

Too much calcium causes a dangerous mineral imbalance. If you do not get calcium in proper proportions with other minerals it will pool in various parts of your body causing – but certainly not limited to – the above conditions.

So, how do you find out if you have a calcium excess?

The Calcium Lie II Cover 3DDr. Robert Thompson explains how in his newly updated book, The Calcium Lie 2. You’ll also discover how a very simple change to your diet (it costs less than $5) can fix any underlying mineral imbalances.

While supplies last, you can pick up a free copy of The Calcium Lie 2 here.

However, you can begin to regain your health by simple and affordable nutritional means

In the process, you can reduce, successfully treat and even eliminate some of the greatest health challenges of our time including: obesity, diabetes, cancer, atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries and heart disease), hypertension, hypothyroidism, osteoporosis, depression, migraines, dementia, many autoimmune diseases and many more illnesses.

ManArthritisHandsAnd if you are concerned about osteoporosis (or are experiencing joint pain), that could be a sign you are seriously deficient in trace minerals. That is because your bones operate like a huge mineral storage tank for your body. They collect and store excess minerals until other systems in your body need them.

Let’s use potassium as an example. Potassium is essential for thyroid hormone function. If your thyroid needs potassium it either gets it from your diet or simply pulls some from your bones when necessary.

But what happens if the foods you eat don’t have enough potassium? But what happens if your mineral stores run low? What happens if – for example – you don’t have enough potassium in your bones? If that is the case either your thyroid doesn’t get the potassium it needs (which leads to a thyroid dysfunction)…or…your potassium levels in your bones dip dangerously low (which weakens your bones).

You can’t have it both ways

That is why osteoporosis (or even pain in your joints) could be a signal that something much more serious is wrong. Your bones literally don’t have enough minerals to maintain structural stability.

This is why it is so important you get enough trace minerals in the proper proportions. It’s not just a matter of a better quality of life…when it comes to minerals (including calcium) you need them in the right proportions. That’s why too much calcium kills.

    I have been diagnosed with Osteoporosis and put on Fosamax, I have been on it now for over 6 months, but not happy about it at all.

    I took ‘Calmax’ powder for 10 years in order to avoid this disease, so obviously that did not work and what you are saying is true.

    Unfortunately my husband and I are on pensions at the moment so buying your Joint formula will not be possible for us as yet. If we come into any money soon we will start to buy it, it sounds excellent.

    Kind Regards

    I have painful calcific tendontiis in my shoulder, as well as joint pain in my hands. Should I stop making bone broth. I thought I was doing the right thing getting plently of calcium. I read once that your body takes calcium from your bones to neutralise acid.

  8. Steven says:


    Please understand that Dr. Thompson’s point if view is, that not that you dont need any calcium in your diet but rather, you do not need to further supplement with calcium and further, you bones are not made of just calcium but minerals plural, and if you get to a point where you have excess calcium for long periods of time, bad things happen.

    So you can get your blood tested, to see if there are any imbalance in mineral as well as Vit D3, and if you are to supplement, Dr Thompson suggests a trace mineral blend, insuring your get all the minerals you need for strong solid bones…

    P.S. I love the idea of bone broth, the trick is stay in balance with your minerals so looking at some of your other food sources can help keep you in balance…

    My husband asks for Rub On Relief when his knee is painful and finds great relief for the knee, but also, for the neuralgia following shingles he had over a year and a half ago. There is almost nothing that touches that type of nerve pain, not even narcotics, so it is wonderful to have that available. Thank you for your work to find relief for the pain that we all have at one time or another, or constantly.

    I’m using my trial bottle of Heal & Soothe – 7th day. I have increased as suggested. I must say I do feel better. My lower back pain is far less and a bonus for my fingers. They are not as stiff due to surgery. I just walked a mile and a half and returned home thinking I would be in more pain in the lower back, but to my surprise, that didn’t happen.
    I feel a little tired but no pain that I would have felt before I started the Heal & Soothe. I have ordered the monthly delivery bottle and am already looking forward to receiving it. Thanks for the emails loaded with great info.
