Stomach Ulcers

Ulcers can be very dangerous, the worst case being that a hole can be opened up allowing food to get from the alimentary canal into the surrounding tissue. Famous nutritionist, Adelle Davis, reports the following fascinating and enlightening information about ulcers in her book “Let’s Get Well” where she quotes the work of Dr Hans Selye, the pioneer of stress research and how rats that had limbs immobilized (to cause stress) developed ulcers overnight.  Parallels for this were people who developed ulcers overnight during war-time air raids.Stomach and Ulcer

Dehydration Symptoms

Dehydration can manifest in many different ways so it’s important to know the symptoms. Most people know, when they’re in the heat outside, that they’re getting hot and usually compensate with some kind of liquid. However, there is a hidden source of dehydration and that is spending excessive time in air-conditioned or heated rooms – even airplanes.

Menopause and Menstrual Problems

Written by Andre Lotz with excerpts from Adelle Davis

“At the end of the reproductive cycle, the ovaries gradually become inactive. This process is the reverse of changes that occurred in puberty, and a healthy woman on an adequate diet is as unaware of any disturbances as she was at adolescence. Furthermore, normal adrenal glands produce a number of sex hormones which take over when menstruation ceases.

“Problems at menopause are often much more severe than at puberty, largely because the diet has been deficient in many nutrients for years prior to its onset. These are protein, calcium, magnesium, vitamin D, E, and pantothenic acid (vitamin B5). Menopausal Woman “For instance, persons who spend much of their time indoors may have no vitamin D whatsoever in their blood. Moreover, women who have a particularly difficult time during this period are usually those whose adrenals are exhausted. “Because calcium is less well absorbed and the urinary losses are greater when the output of estrogen decreases, such calcium-deficiency symptoms as nervousness, irritability, insomnia, headaches and depression are common. “These problems can be easily overcome if the intakes of calcium, magnesium, and vitamin D are all generously increased and are well absorbed. “….During menopause the need for vitamin E soars 10 to 50 times over that previously required. Hot flashes and night sweats often disappear when 50 to 500 units of vitamin E are taken daily, but they quickly recur should the vitamin be stopped. If estrogen is given, the need for vitamin E increases still further…..” “…. When menopause symptoms are severe, the condition should be looked upon as another form of stress, and all nutrients needed to stimulate the production of adrenal hormones particularly emphasized.”* A WOMAN’S NEEDS GO SKY, SKY-HIGH BEFORE AND DURING MENSTRUATION AND MENOPAUSE During menopause, menstruation and puberty, a woman’s need for calcium goes sky, sky high. Then, typically, woman have problems with MOOD, SLEEP, PAIN and BLOOD CLOTTING.  You should drink three glasses of Instant Calmag-C during the day if going through menopause or menstruation. Please note: in order for your body to absorb calcium, it needs to be accompanied by its partner, magnesium, in a balanced ratio of two parts calcium to one part magnesium. Calcium and Magnesium ALSO Need Vitamin C: As both calcium and magnesium are alkaline, they need some kind of acid before they can be absorbed. Failing to have this combination can lead to increased deficiencies of calcium and/or magnesium or the calcium depositing in joints (arthritis) or kidneys (stones). You can use apple cider vinegar too but vitamin C is usually a more practical and better-tasting solution. Why Our  Instant CalMag-C Works: Instant CalMag-C has been formulated in a 2:1 blend of calcium gluconate and magnesium carbonate with vitamin C to adjust the pH so your body can actually absorb the calcium and magnesium.  Tablets and capsules sometimes don’t break down properly or are not properly balanced with calcium and magnesium and often don’t have any type of acid.  This is very important. It should also made with boiling water. This is very important as calcium particles are large and the chemical reaction created by dissolving the powder with boiling water breaks them down into smaller ones. It has a pleasant lemony taste. Calcium Also Needs Vitamins D & F: Most people know that vitamin D is needed to absorb calcium. This is correct, but the vitamin D only absorbs it into the bloodstream. What most people don’t know is that, in order to get calcium from your bloodstream into your tissues, you need vitamin F (another name for essential fatty acids). Vitamins D and F need to be in balance with each other so make sure you take a good quality fish (or cod) liver or flax oil in your daily diet. They are very important for good hormonal function too. NOTE: We have not added vitamin D or F to Instant CalMag-C. That’s because they are both oil soluble vitamins whereas calcium and magnesium are water soluble and it’s not a good idea to mix them.
