Re: Rock-based Calcium (and other rock-based minerals)

I agree with so much of this information and yet there is much misunderstanding and confusion about minerals being "natural" and all the labels of whether it's "plant" derived or "rock."

I'll just throw some thoughts out that way and you can see how this is a much deeper subject and there is much more then meets the eye.

Example, Coral Calcium is not just calcium....
Here is an analysis from a lab of what's in a coral calcium product.

Western Analysis, Inc.
40 West Louise Avenue
Salt Lake City, Utah 84115

January 6, 2008

Project # 02-0987
Customer: HL Distribution Company
PMB 2270 - 4080 Paradise Road #15
Las Vegas, NV USA 89109

Analyst: Kyle Schick, Laboratory Manager/Chemist
Analysis Requested: Total elemental composition of Brazilian Coral Mgr. 0823
Sample I.D.: Brazilian Coral Mgr. 0823
Lab # 85572

Procedure: The sample was diluted as necessary in glass Class A volumetric flasks. The elements Chloride, Fluoride, and Bromine were analyzed via Ion Chromalography (I.C.) Cold Vapor Atomic Absorption (CVAA) was used for analysis of Mercury. Graphite Furnace Atomic Absorption (GFAA) was the method used to determine Arsenic, Selenium, Lead and Antimony. Semi-quantitative analysis for all other elements was carried out using Inductively Coupled Plasma - Optical Emission Spectrometry (ICP-OES).

Therefore claiming that it can imbalance other minerals and so forth when it is a full spectrum mineral supplement from the ocean that is teaming w/ abundant life, all balanced and probably where we originated from. Do our bones dissolve in our body? is it possible that the body brings the microscopic particles together to build bone? Sun energizes us like a solar battery, polarizing and energizing our cells/ minerals like magnets to draw the particles together to form bone? All about energy?

Weston Price Foundation research shows us that meat eaters or a paleolithic diet that contains both vegetables AND meats, contribute to the strongest bones in society, and those with the highest rates of osteoporosis and weak health in the world are in South India I believe where they practice vegetarianism, and many of them along with vegans come into my practice with so much ill health.

Short term may balance body, long term an imbalance in either direction of meats or veggies and the exclusion or minimizing either will cause ill health (weaken the body). Yet they hold on to something that has benefitted them so much in the short-term.

So do we receive enough calcium and minerals from plants? Apparently the arabs that include meats and dairy benefit much more in health. They do not pasteurize, and preserve by fermenting their foods with their hotter climate.

So we blame dairy because we denature a perfect food that is soley what babies need to thrive and grow during a very important part of life. Receiving the benefits of the three main macro nutrients, carbs, proteins, fats, in the proper ratios, the beneficial organisms to digest it all and minerals, enzymes, co-factors etc, things we don't even know about today. Leave it up to nature and don't modify it thinking we know better.

There are so many factors, that both contribute to the conditions that cause dis-ease and multiple factors required to not only change the condtions to restore the body to contribute to improved conditions, but to reverse much of what has been done once you have an understanding and know what to do.

Questioned "rock "vs "plant" minerals
I Read that Plant minerals can break down the stronger bonds of rock minerals, but man can only break down the weaker bonds of plant minerals, which are also far smaller in size and more easily soluble in water, more easily digestible. Eat sidewalk or a plant premise.

Then we have the issue of imbalance w/ isolated minerals or any nutrients. Ca. displacing or being off ratio/ imbalanced w mg, etc, yet learned that coral calcium in not truly rock nor isolated, has living microbes and altho called calcium, it's an abundance of minerals including magnesium in the right natural balance/ ratio.

Bottom line is that it supplies calcium and 75 minerals that were used by the Japanese living in the Okinawa islands, who live beyond 100 years in great health, . It was brought to Europe by the Spanish explorers about 500 years ago who were amazed at the obvious vibrant health, energy and number of centenarians of the islands.

The world's oldest drugstores in Spain, which today are historic monuments have clay pots on their shelves labeled "Coral Calcium, Okinawa Japan."

Literature written by doctors of the day told of miraculous cures. By the turn of the 20th century, the consumption of coral had spread to mainland Japan, where currently there are about 17,000,000 users. Today there are millions of consumers in China, Russia, Britain, France and Sweden.

Crystals in alkaline Ionized Water form due to forming around minerals, and they crystallize when cold, yet don't stay hard in body once warm up - warmer solution, they dissolve and provide a function to conduct electricity and interact.

Ice crystals are hard, does that mean that they remain hard in the body with a different set of conditions?

Calcium plays a role in the fat splitting enzyme w/ pancreas and for the ability to recognize glucose to secrete the insulin.

Medical Research in South Africa has had spectacular results using Mg, versus Warafin blood thinnner, which is used as a rat poison,

Mg aspartate best form?

Getting back to the topic at hand...
Some manufacturer's know that coral calcium has live microbes and how it was created and how it breaks down and builds up, they try to retain it's "freshness" Can this full spectrum live mineral supplement be advantageous to the body?

Look at the results and scientific research behind alkaline ionizer units that use coral calcium in the water with the filtration units, and look at the studies done with animals and plant life done w/ this same calcium... no placebo there, benefits, you bet... only short term or long term?

Many people have consumed it for centuries, it is not new... is the jury still out? I'm not an advocate for coral calcium per se, but you cannot discount the benefits and it would be considered by many to be a "rock" form of calcium that is not compatible with the body, so how is it that it produces consistent beneficial results with the body?

is it as simple as saying is it "plant" or "rock" derived?

Trying to keep it all in perspective...
