Certain dietary lifestyles do pull calcium and other minerals from places they are needed in order to balance out when we become overly acidic. This makes alot of sense to me, as I have experienced severe tooth sensitivities only to have them disappear after a few months of eating differently. I see it in my skin, and in my elimination.
Thanks Catlady. My doc wants me to do a bone density test because of another lab result she looked at. And I am on high-strength Vitamin D (bio-emulsified) which also pulls calcium from the bones (if I’m not careful and take too much). In a phonecall the other day she mentioned that I was “Acidic”.
But first she wants to work on fixing my gut sot hat the supplements she prescribes actually get absorbed.
wow, I thought vitamin D helped you to absorb calcium, not pull calcium from bones.
I was told to take a high amount of vitamin D because I am very deficient, but I also know calcium was somehow a player in my recovery last time I had candida (and didnt know it)so now im a bit nervous to take the D.
maybe I need to research it more.
There is no doubt in my mind that everyone who has candida is acidic, because even if we werent acidic before, candida creates that toxic environment and makes us acidic.
Im considering a stronger detox than what I am presently doing as we speak…im feeling like I am not doing enough to clear my kidneys and lymph.
I will be watching to see how her protocol helps you,Bansaw.
So far what she says resonates with what I have have read elsewhere (except for the D).
