Remarkable Minerals : Calcium The Big Daddy

Oct 25, 2007
Cancer research has excelled in the last two decades. We know that cancer tumors are very deficient in calcium the low levels of calcium predispose these cancer cells to spreading in the body.

Calcium is the key mineral in acid base balance in the tissue system of the entire body. Acne, the dreaded teenage disorder is spurred on by lack of calcium.

The skin, the largest eliminative organ of the body, gets its' youthful tone from calcium levels. Smoking causes cancer, a commonly accepted fact but so does chronically low levels of calcium.

Along with other reasons low calcium levels are found in kidney, liver, brain and heart diseases. Arthritis is caused by imbalances in the nervous system, digestive system and immune system but the one common link is calcium absorption and level imbalances.

Calcium imbalances can lead to even irregular heartbeat patterns. Stress, the seed of so many disorder depletes calcium stores in the body. Ayurveda, the ancient medical science, still in use today teaches that the memory is stored in the bone.

Bone cells contain the greatest amount of calcium in the body where it is stored. To have efficient calcium absorption there must also be iron, magnesium, phosphorous, vitamins A,C, D and F and protein.

We need plenty of sunlight, exercise and rich amounts of magnesium and phosphorous foods( list of foods will be in other articles in Remarkable Minerals series by Dr. Helen Thomas) to complement the utilization of calcium in the body.

The highest nutrient values of calcium are found in prunes, broccoli, mung beans, fig, sesame and sunflower seeds, almonds, parsley, watercress, beetroot greens, white beans, olives, and dandelion greens.and wheat bran.

Not as high as first mentioned group but also good sources ae celery, barley, cabbage, snap beans, rains, black currants, pumpkin seeds, apricots, lentils, pear, and last but not least, brussel sprouts.

My favorites are raspberries, blueberries, grapes strawberries, coconut milk all great but do have lower values than the first mentioned.

Sunlight as I mentioned is essential for calcium absorption and certainly for bone fractures. There are two big no-nos drinking and smoking. If you do either of these you need to detox and supplement your body with high doses of liquid calcium minerals.Alcohol impairs the absorption rate of calcium to the nervous system and brain.

Calcium absorption is directly affected by beer, vodka, rum, whiskey, martini and wines. The human body can interact with alcohol efficiently especially if the health conscious drinker also consumes super doses of nutrients with regularity.

If the spirits are your thing be sure to eat almonds, apples and daces or apples with regularity plus take a vitamin and mineral supplement.

Calcium intake is essential to guard against fatigue and exhaustion. Fatty foods also block calcium absorption so too much French fries, deep fried foods, and fatty meats will interfere with your calcium use in the body.

The dreaded osteoporosis is a regular visitor to my office. It is common for woman between the age of 50 and 80 to come in worried about the health of their bones.

In todays world of stress and psychological challenges it is imperative to use liquid minerals and vitamins for easy absorption. 2007 Copyright Dr.Helen Thomas D.C. B.A. All rights reserved in all countries This article can be republish with my copyright and links in every article.
