Herbal Calcium Tablets:

Maintaining the Nutritional Foundation

The body stores ninety percent of it’s calcium in the bones and teeth.

This huge percentage of calcium is not just stagnantly stored there and forgotten by the body. This storehouse of calcium is constantly used, replenished and washed through the system in a very minute molecular way. Some calcium molecules create a framework or nest for other calcium to come and go.

When you look at a bone that has osteoarthritis or osteoporosis, it looks porous, like a sponge. The center of the pore should be filled (and constantly replenished) with fine delicate calcium.

However, that skeletal calcium is the foundation of our house. How can you fix the foundation when there’s a house on top of it?  You have to repair the foundation and at the same time keep the house running.

Calcium is the third top biochemical foundation piece that makes up our body. The top four are: sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium. These four minerals act as the four corners of our foundation

Calcium is so important to keeping the body’s biochemical balance that our body has very specific communication avenues just for calcium. These specific pathways run by osmosis, de-fusion, or active transport.

Bio-availability is Key to Calcium Metabolism

It is one thing to take calcium; it is another thing to take calcium in a form that is usable by the body. First it has to be absorbed within about the first twenty feet of the digestive tract, then absorbed into the blood stream and carried to the liver where is it reconstituted into a molecular form that is actually usable. The parathyroid takes it to the next step of usability.

Certain calcium molecules absorb slowly, some at a medium speed and some quickly. Each type has a different foundational function. The body requires many types of calcium to replenish the many different forms of calcium found in the body.

Every function, every organ and everything within the body relate to calcium in a specific way.  Its primary function, from my point of view, is to alkalinize the body starting with the acid/alkaline balance of the digestive tract. All systems need a portion of the calcium to fully deal with aging, repairing and regenerating.

Solution To Calcium Replenishment

An ideal combination of different types of calcium would entirely replenish the empty or depleted stores that have been used by immune system to maintain balance as well as the long-term stores in the bones. Does such a product exist? Yes.

Of course, in order for the best metabolism of calcium, several other ingredients are needed, such as Vitamin D and magnesium. Vitamin D is needed, for the hormonal translation of calcium into calmodulin, calcitonin, calcitriol, calcidiol and cholcalciferol – all hormonal secondary molecules.

A natural source of magnesium is a rich chlorophyll product like alfalfa sprouts, liquid chlorophyll  and Spirulina, or plants rich in magnesium, or water. Almonds are also a good source of both calcium and magnesium.

Different government studies over the years have shown that on average seventy-five percent of Americans are deficient in calcium. However digging a little deeper into that average, we find that women are more like 85% deficient and men are more like 65% deficient. So calcium deficiencies are an established fact, and more proof that our basic diet, with all the supposed “enriched with vitamins and minerals” isn’t cutting it.

To paraphrase Einstein, if we keep eating and taking the same supplements the way we have been and yet expect different results, well, we are in for a surprise. Thus my focus on getting everyone to consciously take steps to get more, and a variety of, calcium into the diet.

The ideal Calcium supplement is food based and gives a number of different types of Calcium- gluconate, citrate and carbonate. These Herbal Calcium Tablets offer the necessary 1200 to 1400 mg’s of calcium a day. Yes, the recommended daily requirement may not equal that amount, however from my studies of the effects of this formula, that is what I recommend. The benefits of using food-based Herbal Calcium Tablets is that the calcium absorption starts in the mouth’s membranes (similar to a sub lingual), the calcium gets absorbed more readily and partly bypasses the losses that occur in the digestive tract to liver processing situation. The food-based source also helps correct the stomach acid/alkaline balance.

Expected Health Benefits of Herbal Calcium Tablets:

1. Clearer thinking: Calcium is used in our brain’s biochemical action. Low calcium leads to memory loss as well as insomnia (can’t stop thinking, restless brain symptoms).

2. Weight management and weight-loss: Yes weight management. Low calcium causes the body to go into an “I’m starving” mode that stimulates a hormone cascade that starts with the parathyroid releasing hormones, causing the bones to release calcium, causing the kidneys to release calcitriol to increase calcium absorption. This whole process also stimulates fat production and inhibits fat breakdown. High calcium intake stops the starvation cascade of hormones and its resultant fat production and preservation. (Ironically, with their high phosphoric acid content, diet sodas leach calcium from the body thus contributing to overweight conditions.)

3. Healthy teeth: Stands to reason, now that we know that our bones and teeth aren’t set in stone but are in a constant state of coming and going.

4. Fewer PMS symptoms: Studies show improvement in both emotional and physical symptoms. (Maybe this should be reason #1).

5. Lowers risk of colon cancer: Scientists aren’t sure of the exact mechanism, but studies find adequate to more than adequate intake of calcium has a protective effect.

6. Protection of your heart: That same starving hormone cascade that causes weight gain also affects your arteries. With an adequate supply of calcium your blood pressure gets reduced. Not the whole picture to heart health, but a simple and foundational step.

7. Natural relaxing mineral: Calcium relaxes muscles (no more Charlie horses) and aids in getting a better night’s sleep. Just think how much better your days go when you get adequate sleep the night before and wake up all chipper!

8. Stronger immune system: Calcium is crucial to a healthy immune system.

Actions To Improve Calcium Uptake

Cut out drinks like sodas and coffee that, respectively, leach calcium or increase calcium excretion.

Eat more fruits and vegetables since the metabolizing of these foods shifts the acid/alkaline balance of the body towards an alkaline state by producing bicarbonate that reduces calcium loss. (Meat tends to cause the body to go acidic, thus causing the bones to release calcium and phosphorous).

Exercise improves calcium uptake. Maybe it is time to start dancing.

Take Herbal Calcium Tablets (3 to 6 a day). These Tablets include all three key kinds of Calcium plus food based precursors and supporting herbs.

Calcium: Miracle Foundation for Great Health

March 2, 2011



Calcium – Miracle Foundation for  Great Health

Calcium performs several important roles as our physical foundation. It forms and replaces the skeletal foundation as well as acts to preserve the pH balance in most of our body. Whatever wear and tear there is on the body, if our calcium foundation does not remain strong and viable, small warning signs will begin to appear.

In maintaining our physical health, Calcium functions as the foundation of your physical house.  In a building, once the foundation is established, we start to build our house and, unless a problem develops, we don’t go back and check the soundness or firmness of the foundation. Once the building is finished, the foundation is taken for granted and we assume it will remain sound indefinitely.

If you think about it, the dimensions and strength of the foundation determine everything in the whole evolution of the house. Room sizes, the number of stories, plumbing, appliances… all the way up to the tip top of the roof. Calcium, its abundance and types,  is the foundation underpinning the health of our body.

Years of living in a house can cause visible changes such as outside weathering, redecorating, and modifications by new occupants. However, homeowners fail to pay attention to the soundness of the out-of-site part – the foundation.  Usually twenty-five to fifty years later the foundation is still sound. Just as a foundation in soil that is constantly wet or acidic need to be monitored, so too our calcium foundation needs maintenance checks. Without proper maintenance, the concrete can become porous allowing water to leak into basements or can develop cracks.

Not Enough Replacement Calcium In Foods

Our calcium foundation doesn’t need a lot of attention, but it does need to respond to early deficiency warnings. Most Americans, if they give it a thought at all, assume that they get enough calcium from the every day standard American diet.

Driving this assumption are two factors: the misconception that dairy products and vegetables supply enough of the necessary calcium and the inability to perceive the early warning signs the body gives for a calcium deficiency.

Since we miss or explain away the little signs of calcium depletion, such muscle cramps, we tend to only pay attention to our foundation when a big alarm goes off. The various alarms can range from osteoporosis, premature aging, graying hair, constant reoccurring fatigue, overweight issues, recurrent kidney/bladder problems, seasonal lung allergies, emotional swings that impair our functionality, to just sighing. These are just a few indicators that can indicate a calcium deficiency.

The fact is our food supply, regular or organic, does not have the bio-available calcium stores needed to replenish our foundation. Thus, just living life depletes our body’s calcium foundation.

What is our calcium depletion rate? Even a person who doesn’t move for twenty-four hours uses up four to five hundred mg’s of calcium just by breathing!

Calcium Metabolism Affected By Oxygen Concentration

Calcium has an innate affinity for oxygen, which means altitude affects the speed of its utilization and metabolism. People at sea level metabolize differently than people at a thousand or more foot elevation or people who fly a lot.

Not only is calcium hooked on oxygen – it also prefers different blends of oxygen. Nitric oxide is more prevalent in children than adults, which helps children build strong bones, (assuming they are getting enough calcium).

This is important to understand because underneath our body’s alkaline/acid mantle, there is an oxygen mantle (pO)., similar to pH. Our pO determines how much oxygen our blood is carrying to the tissues. Calcium works in both the pO and pH arenas and depends upon both to restore our calcium stores.

Almost all disease conditions in the body are due to the pH balance being too acid. There are actually seven areas within our digestive tract that have different optimum pH levels, though most people only check the saliva or urine pH levels to determine health. It not that acid is bad, it is necessary to balance the alkaline. However, keeping the pH level in an alkaline state overall is best for maintaining optimum health. (For the scientific minds, of course calcium doesn’t act alone, magnesium plays its enzymatic role in this pageant of our digestive tract actions).

Observations of Patient Response to Types of Calcium

So far we have covered a basic understanding of calcium. Following are my clinical findings. I have been practicing now for thirty years and I have used every type of calcium on the market and have even made my own from eggshells.

My theory was if I could help improve the worst-case scenarios of calcium deficiency, then I could easily improve the cases of lesser calcium deficiencies.

The hardest cases to tackle are the calcium loss in the bones. Remember ninety percent of the body’s reserve or store of calcium is in the bones and teeth. To measure the effects of a calcium regime, I would take before and after X-rays of clients with bone loss.

To measure efficacy of treatments and results, I observed each client over the course of almost a year and used different types of calcium. These studies would not be seen as scientific in that I did not use a double blind studies, use control patients on placebos, nor implement any dissection trials. My “effectiveness of using bio-available calcium theory” was simply tested by X-rays and client health results.

As a result of my studies, I propose the following:

1. Calcium Carbonate restores the framework or the porous structure of the bone,

2. Calcium Glucanate restores the missing marrow or center of this structure of porosity, and

3. Calcium Citrate holds the calcium in an active transportable state due to the innate properties of the citrate or oxygen.

This is excellent! We no longer have to fly blind on the question of calcium types and absorption in our health regimes. I have enough feedback from my clients and astounded medical personell that I am positive of my assertion that the calcium potentials are working.

Now all we have to do is actually take the calcium. The body will automatically figure the correct pH for us all along the digestive and waste transport processes.

Just Breathe- Gentle Herbal Supplement support for respiratory system

July 26, 2010

Five Element Herbal Formula Series

Metal Element

Respiratory System Herbal Formula C

This is an ancient herbal formula designed to promote health with the “precious” or metal element system which allows us to breathe, transport oxygen to the cells and maintain healthy lymphatics and lung function.

The herbs are combined to enhance  healthy respiration and are food grade herbs, designed to be safely used daily. With the rise of asthma among children, many people are looking to natural respiratory support and nutritional supplements.

RESPIRATORY SYSTEM FORMULA

  • Nourishes the lymphatic and respiratory systems
  • Chi and breath are considered almost one and the same. Whatever hampers breathing hampers chi
  • Respiratory: Functions are closely related to the immune system
  • An overactive immune system can damage respiratory tissues
  • An underactive immune system allows respiratory infections like-colds, flu and pneumonia
  • This formula appears to nurture functions that support respiration and that protect it from damage
  • Protection against colds and flu
  • Relief of headaches, migraines and reduces cerebral swelling and pain
  • Relief of congestion in chest and head (sinuses, bronchials)
  • Protection against infections
  • Soothing of the stomach
  • Relief of allergies and building of body resistance.

Illness was perceived by the ancient eastern herbalists as a sign of weakness and vulnerability. Consequently, physicians were charged with the responsibility of developing a formula to sustain and promote good health.

Research has shown Respiratory Formula to be nourishing to the body allowing nutritional emphasis to be placed with the lymphatic, immune and respiratory systems.

The ancient Chinese herbalists attributed their good health to herbal nourishment that enhanced powers of resistance and maintaining a healthy respiratory system as a key line of defense.

Stevia And Natural Weight Loss

June 12, 2010

Your weight loss program gets easier with a natural no-sugar sweetener called stevia.

Our popular new stevia supplement is available in a clear formula, as well as the dark original formula that only takes a few drops to make your next cup of tea naturally sweet with no extra calories or carbohydrates!

Stevia – Herbal Sweetness

Is it possible? Yes, stevia tastes sweeter than sugar, and it promotes weight loss!

Stevia contains natural compounds… that are estimated to be 150 to 400 times sweeter than sugar. Advocates claim that the herb also offers a host of health benefits, and is even a tonic for the skin. But here’s the clincher: Stevia sweetens without calories. While it tastes sweeter than honey, it’s about as fattening as water. -From the article Sinfully Sweet.

Stevia, unlike all the other sweeteners on the market, does not cause a hypoglycemic, hyperglycemic, insulin, inulin, hypoadrenal or hyperadrenal reaction. This means your pancreas won’t go bananas trying to balance your blood sugar after you drink your stevia supplemented health shake or herbal teas! Make your drinks tastier and still lose weight.

Diabetics can check with their doctors to monitor its effect on their systems.

Stevia contains other amazing properties that make it valuable as a health supplement as well as a weight loss accelerator.  Studies in Germany and Japan found stevia to have antifungal, anti-viral and antibacterial properties. Our stevia supplements are the best formulations of stevia on the market. Both supplements are not refined from stevia, but is the concentrated herb, thus retaining these beneficial health properties.

Remember, keep a Stevia bottle with you at all times, so if you’re at a restaurant and tempted to reach for a sugar packet or one of those gnarly pink ones, you have a healthy sugar alternative.  Use Stevia in our convenient small bottles and keep yourself lean and your blood sugar balanced!

History of Stevia

Two hundred years ago, in the highlands of Paraguay, the Guarani Indians gathered around their warm campfires and sipped a sweet brew made from the leaves and twigs of the nearby plant, stevia rebaudiana. More than a nonfattening sugar substitute (no calories), one test showed that it causes a hypoglycemic activity-reducing and even balancing blood sugar levels. Other studies concurred with the Paraguayan claims that stevia tea helps digestion and supports gastrointestinal tract functions.

Sionce the late 90s in Japan, stevia claimed 41% of the sweetener market. This “sweet herb” also has been reported to help with weight management by regulating metabolic functions and by its diuretic properties.

Dr. Lawrence Lin of the Center For Food Safety and Applied Nutrition noted the market for stevia could be vast.  Stevia is perfect for adding to your herbal teas and the concentrated whole food herb supplements we found.

Stevia – Clearly The Sweetest!

Our Stevia formula is a unique stevia concentrate – not a refined product derived from stevia. Just a few drops of stevia in water with a squeeze of lemon creates a tasty drink that you and children will love.

Contact us to order your bottle of delicious, no calorie, no carb and healthy Stevia and jump start your weight loss program. Get a bottle, for home, work and the road!
