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

Silica Is Another Mineral We Need.

February 16, 2017

I recently recommended Boron to improve the ability of our bones to store calcium. Now I am adding Silica to my list.

When your bones are damaged it is important to take sufficient amounts of silica daily. Bones are composed of magnesium, calcium, phosphorus and silica. Silica diminishes fractures by depositing minerals into the bones, especially calcium. Many studies on silica indicate that through a process of transmutation silica transforms into calcium when is needed.

We used to get silica from whole grains but, when the outer husk of the grain was taken off this was stripped away. Now our diet is usually very deficient in it.

Symptoms of Possible Deficiency:
Osteoporosis, osteo-arthritis, joint pain and weakness, hair loss, heart burn, acid indigestion, GERD, weak teeth and gums, weak skin, brittle nails, and fibromyalgia.

Another thing that silica does is to escort aluminum out of the body so it is becoming increasingly important to make sure you have a regular daily supply. Aluminum is implicated in Alzheimer’s, as is excess calcium so it is worth taking daily silica to prevent that occurring.

There are many ways of taking silica, including horsetail herb, diatomaceous earth and various supplements but most of the studies are done with orthosilicic acid and I think the liquid is better absorbed than any powder and easier to take.

What I am doing now is having a first morning drink of warm water with Ionic trace minerals, Angstrom boron and Organo liquid silica to start off my day. You could also add lemon juice if you like.

I know everyone would prefer a one step solution to all their health problems but since our lives and nutrition are so out of whack now we have to make a bit more effort to cover all the deficiencies.

I hope this helps,
Pam

Borax for Arthritis and Osteoporosis.

December 3, 2016

I just came across a really interesting article about Boron. The article is long but very interesting and could explain why we, here in the US, have more Osteoporosis than almost anywhere else. We have been using fertilizers on our crops for longer than any other country, and more of them. This destroys the boron in the soil. In some parts of the country the amount of boron in the soil is negligible. So that could be one of the ingredients of the problem.

I have really been trying to crack this problem – why women who take care of themselves and eat right are still getting osteoporosis. It’s no use going the scientific route, going to Osteoporosis gatherings and listening to corrupt scientists connected to drug companies because they have no interest in healing anything.

My route is always to look back into old knowledge just before antibiotics were invented and started the whole BigPharma ownership of our country. Here is a small piece of the article:

“It has been estimated that 55% of Americans over the age of 50 have osteoporosis and of these approximately 80% are women. Worldwide 1 in 3 women and 1 in 12 men over the age of 50 have osteoporosis, and this is responsible for millions of fractures each year. In scientific studies Rats with osteoporosis were given a Boron supplement for 30 days with the result that their bone quality was then comparable with that of the healthy control group and of a group supplemented with estradiol (6).

The beneficial effect of Boron on bones seems to be due to two interrelated effects: a higher Boron content of the bones which makes them harder, and a normalization of sex hormones which stimulates the growth of new bone. Low estrogen levels after menopause are thought to be the main reason why so many older women develop osteoporosis. In men testosterone levels decline more gradually which seems to be reflected in their later onset of osteoporosis as a group.”

For women who have joint pain or arthritis the results of boron supplementation are just as powerful so I highly recommend reading this whole article. Taking a teaspoon of the liquid Ionic boron a day for less than 6 weeks has actually created amazing healing. . You could be dancing at your own funeral!

The article also has information about the intake of calcium supplements that doctors are recommending that is actually accelerating aging – not what we want to do!

Now a piece of serendipity that happened is I was wondering yesterday about the flouride that so many people have added to their water, whether they want it or not. I thought it might be implicated in osteoporosis because it is known to be implicated in bone cancer. So this article covers that as well. Thank you, Universe! Boron will also actually help remove flouride from your body as well as free-floating calcium in your blood.

Here is the article http://www.jbbardot.com/inexpensive-osteoporosis-mycoplasma/

I just checked my multi vitamin and all I get if I take all 8 pills a day (which I don’t ) is 1.5 mgs  so I am going to buy some Ionic boron today. I’ll add to this post when my 6 weeks is up and let you know what happened. I don’t have any joint pain so I might not notice anything but I’ll do it anyway.

Update: I found the original source of the article: http://www.health-science-spirit.com/borax.htm and decided to take borax instead of the Ionic Boron. It is more powerful. There is also more information in this version of the article. The instructions on taking Borax are about halfway down the page.

Blessings
