Stop Taking Calcium Supplements Now!!

October 2, 2018

Ok, I’ve been warning women for years that the calcium supplements they were taking were having bad effects and were stored in the brain. All those special bone supplements that incorporate the “right” amount of calcium are also bad for you. Now there is proof.

I wonder if all the people putting out special bone vitamins will pay attention to this and change their vitamin recipes. Probably not, that would cost them money and profit.

My favorite health writer, Sayer Ji, and GreenMedInfo just put out a new blog here that shows that taking calcium supplements, even in low doses, causes brain lesions.

This is a study that was ignored by the main stream health media completely but Sayer Ji is a relentless researcher and just found it. Read the whole article because it explains exactly how this happens and shows that the study was very well-run and covers all the options – unlike studies from drug companies.

I get all my calcium from foods, mainly greens, so I haven’t taken those little ground up rocks for 20 years. I can somehow feel when my body doesn’t like what I give it and I knew they were not good for me. I have to admit I sometimes go on a sugar binge but I take full responsibility for that and usually only do it when I am extremely stressed 😉

Here is a short quote from the article which shows his point of view, which matches mine, on bone health very well:

“As we have reported on extensively in the past, not only is consuming limestone, bone, and the shells of oysters and eggs not a good idea because the calcium can deposit in our soft tissues leading to heart attacks and strokes, but even the goal of maintaining bones as dense as a 25-year old late into life (known as the T-score) is fraught with danger, including a far higher breast cancer risk for those with the highest bone density. Instead of pathologizing aging, and focusing on making the bone denser by any means necessary, the focus should be on bone quality and agility and bodily self-awareness late into life, which helps the elderly prevent the falls that lead to fracture in the first place. In other words, simply having a gait or vision disorder can be at least as an important factor in fracture risk as bone mineral density. ”

All the links to his other articles should still work.

Some customers have told me there are new supplements now that use calcium from food but even those are suspect IMHO. Food has a huge array of components, like a recipe from Mother Nature, and processing the heck out of it to get one ingredient to sell as a capsule is probably not good.

I know most of us want something quick and easy to put in our mouths to keep us going, like gassing up the car, but our bodies deserve more respect than that. The more respect and love you give them the better they love you back. I’m coming down the home stretch to 75 now and not a day goes by that I don’t remember what I owe my beautiful body for coming through for me every single day.

I say, before I get out of bed, “Thankyou, thankyou, thankyou, beautiful body, let’s have an enchanting day today.” That always makes me smile. Life is an adventure for us, my body and me 😉

I wish you all the same. And don’t flush those useless pills down the toilet. All over the US we have other people’s drug cocktails in our water already. And don’t ask me why doctors are pushing calcium down our throats harder every day. We’ve been down that road before and some women don’t like me telling them the reason. They’d rather not know.

Blessings,

New Way to Improve Thyroid Function

August 20, 2018

My favorite online health information site, GreenMedInfo, just commented on new research on Hashimoto’s Disease. There is really no cure from BigPharma, just ongoing supplementation that often doesn’t work well enough to make you feel good.

Now they are finding that there are two things you can do to improve your thyroid that are really painless and work well. Read the whole article for more information because it is very informative, but here is the skinny version.

1-2 brazil nuts a day for natural selenium, plus plenty of delicious fruits for their myo-inositol (something I’d never heard of before).

“Extraordinarily high amounts of myo-inositol are found in cantaloupe and citrus fruits such as oranges, grapefruit, and lime. Other fruit sources high in myo-inositol include blackberry, kiwi, nectarine, mango, prunes, cherries, peaches, pears, watermelon, apple, and carob fruit.”

That sounds wonderful to me and there are studies to prove it works so I’m just adding the brazil nuts, I already eat mostly fruit, and looking forward to kicking my T3 meds.

I highly recommend GreenMedInfo.com anytime you need trustworthy info on any disease and the natural ways to cure it.

Blessings,

Update on Magnesium and Bone Drugs

May 21, 2018

I have been really busy so far this year with repairing the damage to my son’s house from the fires and mudslides here in the Santa Barbara area. I’m finally done with that and realized I needed to update some of the information on the site. I am going to remove the supplement videos I made long ago. Supplements have changed a lot since I did those! I’ll do the new recommendations next, but, for now, I really recommend GreenMedInfo for all the natural health information backed up by scientific studies – honest ones, not like the ones the drug companies put out. It’s an amazing site with an enormous amount of information.

So here is a piece about magnesium from their article here

“Build Strong Bones.

Studies find a significant association between bone density and magnesium levels. But magnesium content of bones decreases with age. In addition, sugar and alcohol cause magnesium to be lost through the urine.

Magnesium assists calcium in building bone strength, but it does much more.  It stimulates the hormone calcitonin.  That helps draw calcium out of the blood and soft tissues and put it back into the bones. Too much calcium in the blood and tissues can increase the risk of arthritis, heart attack, and kidney stones, as well as osteoporosis.

And getting more magnesium may mean you need less than the government’s recommended 1,200 mg of calcium per day.  One study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that increasing magnesium while lowering calcium to 500 mg per day was enough to increase bone density.”

So that is pretty much what I have been saying for the last ten years.

There has also been a new study of the bisphosphonate drugs that shows the drugs were not only ineffective in creating stronger bones but they actually created microcracks that weakened bone significantly. (Ma et al, 2017) This is after the patent expired and the drug companies have made billions for years on this stuff.  Doctors are now pushing Prolia, which is the same poison but much stronger.

Meantime, over the last ten years, while I’ve been waiting for the drug scams to come to the surface, I have been experimenting with whole new areas of health with various tools of frequency, sound and light impregnated with information for our body-fields. It’s fascinating, but still very expensive.

I did discover something recently that I will try out on June 3, Potentiate Your DNA. I’m reading the book right now and he is doing a group potentiation on that date. You can check into that here. I have not recommended any of this so-called woo-woo stuff before because I have a very mixed audience here. The only thing we really have in common is weak bones. But, judging by the women I talk with on the phone, I think we are all seeing clearly that the present health system is broken – and that’s because the drug companies have run the medical schools and the FDA for years. When you make the kind of profits they are making you can buy the whole government – and they did!

Ten years ago I was afraid to say any of this because, first, the older ladies just loved their doctors and did whatever they said, and second, I was afraid BigPharma would send one of their thugs to my door. But I’m small potatoes, and now I’m too old to be scared.

So I have several more things to share and I’ll add some more blogs asap. The supplements one will be next. Off and on over the years I have taken handfuls of supplements or none or just a few, and I have come to the same conclusion as many experts. You don’t need most of them! But you do need to eat good, grow-your-own, or organic food! Everything else has been poisoned!

Dr Mercola, who I followed for years, has often said that he only takes half a dozen supplements himself but he sells about a hundred to anyone who will buy them.

This is a wacky new world we are living in, and what’s coming down the pike often looks very scary, so don’t get sucked into the doom and gloom. Hold a thought of a brave, new, safe and loving world and you’ll be helping to create it.

Lots of love

The Calcium Lie

August 19, 2017

Anyone who reads my site knows that I have been warning women about the dangers of calcium for decades. Calcium supplements are bad for your health, plain and simple. They increase menopausal symptoms, hurt your bones, are bad for your babies and increase heart disease.

Now here is a book, written by a doctor, for those who only believe what an MD says ;), that puts the whole story out for you clearly.

I ordered my copy today although I know all this stuff, so I can convince women who visit me with the examples and studies in the book. You probably know I’m not too enthralled by scientific studies because most of them have turned out to be outright falsifications. But this is a white hat doctor who has used the honest studies.

Dr Robert Thompson released the first volume of The Calcium Lie in 2008 to get the word out about all of the dangers of calcium and the truth about bone health. But most doctors weren’t listening, so now he has updated his book. Check it out here http://www.calciumlie.com/

Considering how much calcium is added to all kinds of foods, you could be eating way too much calcium even if you don’t take the supplements. So read your labels and don’t buy anything that has been fortified with calcium. It’s probably not good for you anyway.

Go to the site and read the information there even if you decide not to get the book and tell all the women you know that added calcium is not your friend. Get your calcium from eating or juicing greens and you will be affecting your life enormously for the better.

Update – 10/31/17

A woman called to buy a vest today and was asking which kind of calcium is better. She had a health history that made her cautious about heart attacks.

So I had glanced at the book when it arrived but I was busy remodeling my house and hadn’t read it yet. I thought I’d look at the book quickly this evening and see if I could find the connection between heart attacks and calcium.

In the first 2 chapters I learned that all supplementary calcium is bad for you and he says we should all be taking Ionic trace minerals instead because we need ALL minerals and we need them in Ionic form so our bodies can absorb them easily. They have a charge on them which allows them to move into the cell.

I take one called Omica Super Ionic – fulvic and ocean minerals.

Also he says we should be putting Himalayan or sea salt in all the water we drink. That’s funny because I started doing that a few months ago and now my pH balance is perfect – 7.25, all the time and I could never get it perfect before, even though I took baking soda at night.

The way I do that is to make a ‘Sole’, which is chunks of Himalayan salt in good water for 48 hours. Then I put a small spoon of that liquid salt into my water. I like it that way now, it tastes boring without it.

He quotes many studies that show the more dairy or fortified, processed food you eat and drink, the more likely you are to have a heart attack. In fact, here’s a quote from another doctor, Jacob Teitelbaum, MD;
“Taking plain calcium for osteoporosis, or even as an antacid, can increase heart attack deaths by a whopping 31%.”

Oh, another thing he said was that taking Vitamin D AND calcium, which most docs recommend is even worse for you in terms of depositing the calcium in places that it shouldn’t be.

So I think everyone should read this book and educate their friends and family. He covers statins and other drugs and puts most health problems down to medical greed so he’s a kindred soul for me. And I’ve only read the first two chapters. If I come across any more must-have info I will update this post again so it’s all in the same place.

Much love,

Pam

 

Ulcer Drugs Increase Risk of Osteoporosis and Dementia

June 28, 2017

If you are taking proton pump inhibitors for ulcers or acid stomach you are running a significant risk of getting dementia (44%) and of breaking a hip.

From a great article on GreenMedInfo by Linda Woolven & Ted Snider:

“Research has linked PPIs to osteoporosis and–get this- -heart attack. Using PPIs for 7 or more years is associated with a 92% increase in the risk of osteoporosis related fractures. After 5 years, there is a 62% increased risk specifically of hip fractures (CMAJ 2008;179:319-26). Women who used PPIs for only 2 years in a study of 79,899 postmenopausal women had a 35% greater risk of hip fracture: the risk was especially great for smokers. When the researchers added this study to 10 others in a meta-analysis, they found a 30% increased risk of hip fracture with PPI use (BMJ 2012;344:e372).”

Read the whole article here.

They also tell you how to use natural cures to take care of your acid reflex and ulcers with NO side effects.

Apparently these are some of the most popular drugs in the world and also the most dangerous. So if you are taking Prilosec, Nexium, Prevacid etc please read the article and get off the drugs.

I’m very grateful to have found GreenMedInfo because Sayer Ji, the founder, likes to do the research through medical studies that I find mind boggling. His site has an amazing amount of information on all health topics and natural solutions so you should check it out before taking any drugs.

Up until now I have limited my information to subjects that I have personal experience with but now I can broaden my scope and bring other things to your attention.

Stay well,

Pam
