Here is, perhaps the foremost sham played on the body: mineral robbery! Not quite a hit-and-run situation, but more an insidious embezzlement, these undesirables account for deficiency in a majority.
There is no question that calcium deficiency is real. In fact, an article on ProcessedFreeAmerica.org states that 75% of Americans have a calcium deficiency. Where has all that calcium gone?
5 usual suspects.
Their M.O.? Forcing calcium out of the body insidiously via body fluids, ejected with the trash like the Millennium Falcon in its classic Star Wars escape, undetected by scanners expecting regularly-scheduled jettison of waste. In other words, it goes unnoticed for some time.
According to healthline.com, effects of calcium deficiency include muscle spasms, numbness in limbs and even depression, far from a complete list. Notwithstanding, at least 5 causes can be controlled.
Calcium depletion mastermind, sweating under interrogation.
The perpetrator? Dehydration.
Contrary to common belief, mineral depletion caused by sources including sweating, urination, diarrhea, even intake of excess fluid can cause dehydration. A proper handling would, therefore, not just involve more fluid intake but a supplement of minerals along with an isolation of the depletion factor.
Drugs: mineral thieves that deplete calcium.
Drug-Nutrient Depletion Charts on Chiro.org show definitively all categories of medication and a host of drugs which create vitamin and mineral deficiency. No drug is exempt.
In this case, deficiencies are created by both forcing minerals out of the body and blocking their absorption, leaving them to be expelled from the body through the urine.
The American Diabetes Association lists thirst and excess urination as symptoms of Diabetes. This suggests an intriguing correlation between sugar intake and dehydration, a mineral deficiency. While it is not alleged that mineral supplements would cure diabetes, it certainly would allow for some improvement.
One source describes how sugar depletes magnesium in the body, a mineral closely related, and often dependent upon calcium, a clear connection to outright mineral robbery.
Cortisone shots can be more of a pain than they’re worth.
DivineHealthFromTheInsideOut.com reports that, in addition to potassium, cortisone depletes calcium, ironically the mineral which helps alleviate or avoid pain.
Too often calcium and other mineral levels go overlooked in favor of a cortisone shot, which is not a long-term solution.
Soil, of late, has been less-than-perfect for growing vegetables. Having less minerals, the soil in which plants are grown has been robbed of numerous minerals. Therefore, even someone who eats a well-balanced diet can become deficient. Supplementation becomes inevitable.
Calcium supplementation, mineral theft insurance
We are told by doctors and dairy farmers that calcium is a king among minerals. These 5 mineral criminals show us just why that may be. Mineral robbery can have devastating effects.
Instant CalMag-C is specially formulated to do two things: Absorb calcium and magnesium, and to do so instantly so it may be used by the body.
While other minerals need supplementation, supplementing calcium alone, let alone magnesium, can correct a key deficiency responsible for a host of health conditions – a correction that can make a tremendous difference in life for those afflicted.
