    An Excerpt from “The Calcium Lie” by Dr. Robert Thompson, MD and Kathleen Barnes

    I think the book might be worth a read.

    The Calcium Cascade

    Excess calcium in the human body begins a cascade of negative effects that have enormous adverse consequences to our health. This process cannot be diagnosed with standard blood tests. It requires a reliable, competent lab to conduct a tissue mineral analysis on a correctly collected hair sample you provide.

    You have excess calcium in your body

    THAT LEADS TO

    Calcium seeking more magnesium to keep your body in balance;

    THAT LEADS TO

    A relative magnesium deficiency in proportion to calcium that leads to increased muscle tension, and nerve endings firing erratically and other “electrical” functions of the body malfunctioning;

    AND

    In its need for more magnesium, your body has to suppress adrenal function in order to retain more magnesium to compensate for the high calcium, causing a loss of sodium and potassium in your urine;

    THAT LEADS TO

    A continual depletion of the sodium and potassium that are stored inside the trillions of cells in your body;

    THAT LEADS TO

    A loss of the sodium and chloride you need to produce the stomach acid you need to digest protein;

    AND

    This increases the incidences of heartburn and other digestive disorders, and the use of prescription drugs that have further destructive effects and impede digestion;

    AND

    Your body gradually loses its ability to digest protein and absorb the essential amino acids that are the building blocks of protein.

    ALSO

    the sodium depletion leads to failure of the sodium pump, the mechanism by which our bodies get essential amino acids and glucose into our cells, not including fat cells.

    FURTHERMORE,

    Potassium levels decline dramatically—this leads to thyroid hormone resistance and slowed metabolism;

    SO

    All cells (except fat cells) become starved for glucose

    RESULTING IN

    increased cravings for glucose and for minerals leading to more cravings

    AND

    deficiencies of sodium, potassium, and essential amino acids, and more cravings.

    THE END RESULT IS:

    Multiple metabolic malfunctions, including, obesity, heart disease, Type 2 hypothyroidism, Type 2 diabetes, anxiety, migraines, depression, hypertension, and the list goes on and on!

    He happily counts among his patients many men and children as well as women who seek out his assistance as a gynecologist as well as a nutrition specialist.

    He received his medical training at the University of Kentucky and has practiced in California, Pennsylvania, and Hawaii as well as in Alaska.

    Dr. Thompson lives in Soldotna, Alaska, where he takes great delight in fly fishing, hunting, hiking, canoeing and skiing and playing concert violin. His website is www.drt-obgyn.com.

    Hi,

    So what does the author recommend for individuals who have calcium levels? The reason I ask is because I have high levels based on a HTMA results I just got this week. Thanks

    Eddie
