Whether you are taking a calcium supplement because of a diagnosed deficiency or as a preventative for osteoporosis, you should consider; why aren’t you absorbing calcium from foods and where is the calcium you are not absorbing going. Not all of the calcium is metabolized out of body by small intestine or the kidneys. So where is it going?
It is carried by the blood to areas of inflammation and deposited thus we have arthritics; plaque; gall stones; fibroids and calcium deposits in the breast. Also, there are cases of those with leg cramps and constipation because the magnesium calcium ratio is disturbed and becomes off balance.
If you still want to supplement with calcium, consider taking it in a homeopathic form. Calcium in this form is not metabolized by the body and does not deposit in the body. it is carried by the energetic pathways thus it doesn’t cause the health issues as a calcium supplement can do.
In another issue, homeopathics can cause problems if not prescribed by a constitutional practitioner who will consider the hereditay patterns, emotional nature and life pathway before suggeting a remedy. symptoms mean that there is a disturbance in the bodies energy pathway. Using remedies for single symptoms can suppress the problems much like prescription drugs.In California, there is not a certification for Homeopathy so anyone can prescribe. always consult a constitutional prescriber who has the education to help you.
