Where is Your Calcium Going?

It seems logical that to have strong bones you need calcium in your diet. Young mammals get calcium from their mothers’ milk for their growing bones. It doesn’t matter if the mother is a gorilla eating leaves, a porpoise eating fish, a tiger eating meat or a baleen whale eating plankton. No adult mammal needs to drink milk for strong bones. The adult animal doesn’t just keep his original bones. Calcium is constantly leaving the bones especially in sedentary humans. Bones need stress and certain minerals, proteins, vitamins and hormones to stay strong and replace lost calcium.

Young women are at special risk of getting thin, weak bones. Milk with cereal does not replace the calcium that combines with the caffeine in a cup of coffee to be excreted in the urine. Low fat milk doesn’t have the fat-soluble vitamin D necessary for getting calcium to the bones. At lunch, the phosphoric acid in either a regular or a diet soft drink combines with some of the normal blood calcium. This is replaced by drawing calcium from the bones. Women also might not eat enough protein to form the matrix for deposition of calcium. Female runners often have another problem. They have reduced their body fat too much so they no longer have this extra source of estrogen-forming tissue. Estrogen also helps keep calcium in the bones.

Astronauts can lose calcium without the stress of gravity. They need to do special exercises and take calcium to prevent this. When I was in a long- leg cast after a broken leg I noticed that the monthly x-rays of the broken bone showed loss of calcium and it wasn’t healing. After I started putting a measured amount of weight on that leg on a scale, it finally healed.

A healthy, athletic friend who took many vitamins and other supplements said he had to give up taking calcium pills when he got deposits of calcium in some of his muscles. He still took mega-doses of vitamins A and E but cut down on vitamin D to shut down this effect.

That was before research on vitamin K2 came out. Vitamin K1 had been known to be important in blood coagulation. We now know that Vitamin K2 determines where calcium is deposited. With adequate K2, calcium goes into your bones and doesn’t deposit in muscles or more important doesn’t deposit in the plaque of blood vessels in potential heart attack victims.

The best source of vitamin K2 is in organ meats like liver, kidney and heart which the French and Amish still eat. This might be the real reason they don’t have heart attacks like many Americans. Since most of our meat products come from factory farms it is well not to eat the organs that concentrate insecticides and other toxins. The organs from an organic farm would be healthful. The liver especially has many vitamins and other aids to natural good health.

Jack LaLanne, might have lived to be over a hundred because of his healthy diet and exercise. He died at 96 from complications of an operation on a calcified valve in his heart. Could this calcification have been prevented if he had consumed vitamin K2?

You can keep your calcium where it belongs by eating as our Paleolithic ancestors did.

Taking another pill hardly compensates for a diet full of manufactured foods.

Can Diabetes be Cured not just Controlled?

Dr. Kenneth Pullman says yes. Having suffered since childhood from diabetes, inherited from his father, he had a mission to find a cure. He spent years of research studying why blood sugar levels were always higher first thing in the morning. Where did this extra glucose come from? He analyzed extracts from kidney and liver tissues and found they did make glucose.
Then he discovered which enzymes were responsible. Next he found which amino acids, fatty acids or other chemicals could block this production. The next step was analyzing fruits, vegetables and supplements to find the ones with these unique chemicals.
He tried these ingredients first while continuing insulin and oral anti-diabetic drugs. Early morning blood sugar was always a perfect 100. He reduced insulin and other drugs and blood sugar was normal throughout the day. Voila. He was able to quit taking the medications.
He did clinical trials on both type I and II diabetics ages 7-89 and they had normal blood glucose within a month. No medical journal would print his results, being dependent on drug companies for advertising . Big Phrma could lose the thousands of dollars a year it gets per diabetic.
In the past year 41,000 diabetics used the information from a secret website. You can look for The Diabetic Protocol: Completely and Permanently Reverse both Type I and Type II Diabetes.
I got the above information from www.miraclebrainsystem.com
