Toe To Head Pain
Vegetable calcium can't be dissolved by our stomachs
(ruminants, like cows, can dissolve it—they have an extra
stomach loaded with special bacteria who do the actual retrieving
of calcium). Tablet-form calcium can't be dissolved well
either, especially as we age. We need predissolved calcium if a
little is to go a long way.
Primitive people who lived on fish or stone-ground meal ate
4-6 grams of calcium a day.6 Even if only 20% of this got dissolved,
they would still have about 1 gram of utilizable calcium
for themselves. Chances are good they dissolved even more,
since they were young (life expectancy was less than 50 years).
Their skull remains show beautiful, cavity-free teeth. They lived
outdoors, mainly, so getting enough sunshine-derived vitamin D
was not a problem. Their natural diet supplied enough vitamin B2
to protect them from UV (ultraviolet) damage from sunshine
But these are civilized times. Our lives are stretched into old
age, when our stomachs no longer produce enough acid to kill
bacteria, nor to dissolve the minerals in our food. So they need to
be dissolved for us. Milk is a beverage where the calcium has
already been dissolved by the other ingredients. The lactic acid
in milk formed during digestion gives the calcium the correct
chelated structure for absorption by the intestine. Even the bile
participates in calcium absorption. Milk also contains phosphate,
but not too much to be useful. I recommend milk as a calcium-
source to heal the jaw bone after and before dental work. You
need 1+ grams a day. One quart of milk has 1 gm (1000 mg) of
utilizable calcium. You absorb only 250-400 mg. The rest is
excreted and eliminated. Only the absorbed calcium can heal
your jaw bone. Use milk in cooking as well as a beverage. The
calcium in it is indestructible.
Bones are not made of calcium alone. Magnesium is essential.
Since magnesium is more soluble and easy to assimilate than
calcium, the tablet form (magnesium oxide, 300 mg, see

DDS first published in 1939. At least, gaze at the pictures. Ask your
library to buy a copy, available from Price-Pottenger Nutrition Foundation,
Sources) will do. If you are not absorbing the magnesium it will
stay in your intestine and act as a laxative. If this happens acidify
your stomach during meals: always add fresh lemon, vinegar, or
vitamin C to your food or drink to help digest milk and dissolve
minerals for you. Boron (3 mg. once a day) and manganese (15
mg. once a day) are additional bone hardeners.
When your diet is improved, your dental problem is cleared,
and your kidneys are clean, your hip pain will stay away and you
can stop thinking about hip replacement surgery.
Mary Hammond, 48, had two painful hips. She was diabetic and
drinking five cups of coffee a day. She had Staphylococcus
aureus infections under three teeth that she no longer had. After
going off caffeine (caffeine may spread bacteria by making tissues
more permeable) and getting some dental work done, her right hip
stopped hurting. When cavitations were cleaned, her left hip
stopped hurting too, but after a week the pain returned. She still
had parasites and their bacteria to kill. She had solvents to eliminate
and a kidney cleanse to do but she was quite enthusiastic and
enjoyed showing off how well she walked.
