A book - 'The Calcium Lie' by Robert Thompson M.D. was recently brought to my attention. I was researching calcium, as a recent hair analysis test I'd had done revealed that I had high calcium. Fortunately I stopped taking Calcium when I saw my test - I am very glad I did.
Perhaps you are already aware of this book, in case not I felt to mention it here as he refers to many things linked to high calcium and why it is an issue. One chapter is entitled:-
How Excess calcium causes Weight Gain, Thyroid & Adrenal Malfunctions & Type 2 Hypothyroidism.
In most chapters he refers to the above (Thyroid & Adrenal Malfunctions). So on reading this my antenna went up!
His observations and findings include treating over 1000 patients, of which almost all of them had high calcium - it is very common and rather serious, as left unchecked it can lead to far more serious health issues.
Why did he write the book, cos he realised the medical profession was getting it wrong, medical school was just not teaching the basic facts....sounds familiar!!
The book is easy to read, he explains his statements on Calcium with sound facts of a biochemistry nature. He also gives advice on what to do about Calcium and how to get the body mineral chemistry in better balance. There are some case studies along the way in the book to.
There are some startling facts about Osteporosis and Calcium along with many other eye opening pieces of information regarding The Calcium Lie.
He has very interesting things to say about Salt, not the white, processed minerally stripped powdered stuff.....but this information was familiar to me. However, was great to re-read it from another angle.
To me his book makes sense , but as always one has to make up their own mind...
