Now here is what they do not tell you about calcium and magnesium that is very important. There are several radioactive isotopes that mimic calcium, the body actually thinks they are calcium and will take them in and put them into the bones and teeth. We are talking about ionizing radiation from nuclear power plants, radioactive munitions and radioactive dust from war. Due to the proliferation of nuclear power, nuclear accidents, munitions and so forth it is very important to supplement calcium and magnesium on a regular basis. This become more important as we age. There are many manufactures selling cal/mag powders that you place into hot water and drink. The ratio should be 2 to 1. Two calcium to one magnesium. You can research this further on your own. I have done the research and seen results with this particular supplement.
It should be taken twice a day and the recommended dosage for anyone over 40 is 1000mg calcium and 500 magnesium taken half in morning and other half later in the day. Vitamin D helps absorption also. If you tried to get this dose in tablets you’d be taking six horse pills twice a day and these can be very constipating.
Beta Carotene sold by Swanson Vitamins in 25,000 per capsule. Cheap and affordable these work for abscesses in the mouth and other infections. High doses can be taken for short stints (days). Based upon Adele Davis Book Let’s Get Well. This works so we keep it stocked and in the freezer.
Peach tree leaves are excellent for bladder infections. These I also have in my freezer.
These are some of my odd tips that work for us.
