Fibromyalgia and Calcium

In our modern world calcium from food sources seem to be mainly from dairy products. We are told we need calcium in great amounts to protect our bones. We are told to drink lots of milk to build strong bones. Milk does the body good so the commercial goes. What if this was giving the total opposite effects of what we have been lead to believe all our lives?

Jon Barron – Killer Calcium?:

In a calcium obsessed society, even when virtually every health expert in the world is telling us we need to supplement with calcium, if the truth be known, we get more than enough calcium. An abundance of research is showing that high calcium intake, dietary or supplementary leads to heart disease, arthritis, debilitating PMS and senility.

The term calcification refers to the binding of calcium with phosphate to form hard bony structures. This is what builds strong bones and teeth but when calcification occurs in soft tissue (anywhere other than the bones and teeth), it presents major health problems. It can lead to hardening of organs and tissue such as heart and arteries, kidneys, brain, skin, joints, breast, pancreas, prostrate and ovaries, etc. This calcification occurs primarily as deposits that steadily grow bigger over time.

Examples include:

– plaque build-up in the arteries (calcium is a major component of arterial plaque)

– kidney stones

– hardening of the ovaries

As calcification builds up in these areas, it can trigger inflammation, autoimmune
responses, infection and the total shut down of the affected organ.

– 50% of all deaths in North America are caused by calcification and hardening of the arteries and calcification of the heart valves.

What we do need is:

Magnesium

Vitamin D

Vitamin K

Boron

Essential Fatty Acids

Balanced PH

What can we do?

Oral Chelation with a good Proteolytic Enzyme

Do yourself a favour, be informed, read the whole article and make your own

informed choices. Jon has the best nutritional supplements I have ever tried,

they are pure and they deliver:

Welcome to Natural Pain Relief For Fibromyalgia


EthicalOil.org is asking for your help by avoid buying Chiquita Bananas and Fresh Express Salads because of their ban on ethical Canadian oil.

What can we do to help support Canadian oil?

Sign the petition http://www.ethicaloil.org/

Quit buying Chiquita bananas!

Find alternative banana companies.

Buy organic! Most grocery stores now have organic bananas that are sometimes only ten cents more per pound. (you will be giving up genetically modified, pesticides and chemicals though!)

Look for Dole banana or any other company. (Dole is the only one I can think of as a competitor)

What I really want to know is……are they genetically modified bananas? So I did some research to see if they are and I came across some more information that we need to know.

I think we might be safe for as far as genetically modified   foods although they are starting to experiment with it now. I dug up something even bigger, just what Dole doesn’t want you to see. Perhaps we should be avoiding all bananas except organic due to the pesticides that are poisoning there workers and if they are using pesticides, then we are eating pesticides. If you saw or support Food Inc, you will like Bananas, here is the trailer you can watch now:

Remember if you are boycotting Chiquita don’t abandon bananas all together.

We know we need bananas for their potassium but what else is in a banana?

I went to bananas.com and found some fascinating facts about bananas. I knew they were healthy for you but I didn’t know how wonderful these little specially wrapped bundles are. What a powerhouse of nutrition with may medicinal healing properties.


Nutritional benefits of one large 9 inch banana

– 602 mg of potassium

– 140 calories

– 2 grams of protein

– 4 grams of fiber

– 2 mg of sodium

– 123 I.U. Vitamin A

– full range of b vitamins

  – .07mg Thiamine

  – .15 mg of Riboflavin

  – .82 mg Niacin

  – .88 mg Vitamin B6

  – 29 mcg Folic Acid

– 13.8 mg Vitamin C

– 9.2 mg calcium

– 44.1 mg magnesium

– trace amounts of iron and zinc

Wow, that is some healthy fruit! Magnesium and potassium are two vital nutrients that we have to keep replenishing

Medicinal Healing Properties

Energy Boost – #1 food with world’s athletes, contains 3 natural sugars, sucrose, fructose and glucose combined with fiber. Gives an instant, sustained and substantial boost of energy. Enough for a 90 minute workout

Nerves – high in B vitamins that help calm the nervous system

PMS – regulates blood glucose levels which can affect your mood

Anemia – high in iron

Overweight and at work – most obese people were more likely to have high-pressure jobs. Report from Institute of Psychology in Austria report concluded that to avoid panic-induced food cravings, we need to snack on high
carbohydrate foods (such as bananas) every two hours to control our blood sugar levels

Depression – bananas contain tryptophan, a type of protein that the body converts into serotonin, the feel good hormone

Blood Pressure – extremely high is potassium yet low in salt; the US Food and Drug Administration or FDA has just allowed the banana industry to make official claims for it’s ability to reduce the risk of high blood pressure and stroke.

Hangovers – banana milkshake with honey

Morning sickness – eating bananas between meals can help keep blood sugar levels up and avoid morning sickness

Mosquito Bites – rub the bite with the inside of a banana skin

Brain Power – can assist learning by keeping students alert

Constipation – high in fibre, can help restore normal bowel action, forget the laxatives!

Ulcers – only raw fruit that can be eaten food that can be eaten without distress for over-chronic ulcer cases, also neutralises over-acidity and coats the lining of the stomach.

Temperature Control

Seasonal Affective Disorder SAD – natural mood enhancers, trypotophan

Quit Smoking – Vitamins C, A, B6, B12, potassium, magnesium

Stress – Potassium is a vital mineral – normalizes heartbeat, sends oxygen to the brain and regulates body’s water-balance. When we are stressed, our metabolic rate rises, thereby reducing potassium levels

Strokes – eating bananas on a regular basis cuts risk by 40% according to research from New England Journal of Medicine

Warts – tape a piece of banana skin on the wart

Heartburn -natural antacid effect

I was looking for the nutritional facts of one large banana and found:

121 calories

112 from carbohydrates

3.8 from fat 

5 from protein

0 from alcohol

On the Self nutrition data website I found it interestingly included the inflammation factor:

– a banana scores shows it is mildly inflammatory at -69

– foods with a negative rates are inflammatory and foods with a positive rate are anti-inflammatory.
