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
- Problem Pregnancies
If that’s news to you, it is not your fault…
Nearly 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?
Dr. 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.
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.
And 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.
