Leave a Comment Osteoporosis: Calcium, Protein, and Cayce Just as high blood pressure is known as the silent killer, osteoporosis is known as a silent disease, often not detected until a seemingly minor slip or fall results in a not-so-minor broken bone. Osteoporosis is common in post-menopausal Asian and Caucasian women but less so in African-American women, who tend to have a bit more bone mass genetically.
Men are less susceptible to thinning bones because testosterone partially protects them against bone loss, even as they age. Visible signs of osteoporosis include loss in height and rounding shoulders. Symptoms may include neck ache and backache.
Prescription drugs that suppress bone breakdown or provide hormone replacement are also widely used. While such plans will help if executed wisely, the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis is far more complex.
Prevention of Osteoporosis Osteoporosis is most easily and effectively prevented by achieving peak bone mass in early adulthood. To achieve this goal, young people should get plenty of calcium in their diet; avoid excessive intake of alcohol, caffeine, and salt; exercise; get a healthy amount of Vitamin D sunshine , Vitamin K cabbage, broccoli, soybeans, and lettuce , and magnesium cocoa, nuts, seeds, and whole grains.
As they mature, this investment in health will pay off in major, life affirming ways. Beyond Conventional Wisdom Osteoporosis is a disease that affects all women to some degree. While calcium alone is not enough to prevent osteoporosis, it is vital to bone health. Researchers recommend up to 1, mg. If supplementation is necessary, calcium that is easily assimilated is recommended, such as Calcios , Coral Calcium, and Calcium Citrate.
Edgar Cayce recommended Calcios as a supplement to several women with osteoporosis-like symptoms. Calcios is pre-digested calcium prepared from bone and marrow and is easily assimilated into the body.
Along with the calcium, it is important to take 50 percent as much magnesium as calcium, which, when taken with vitamin D—the best source of which is milk and sunlight—will promote calcium absorption. There are several supplements available with the proper balance of all three nutrients. It would be time well spent to go to a health food store or pharmacy and discuss such options with a knowledgeable professional. Although it is always best to derive the nutrition we need from a healthy lifestyle, being updated on nutritional research when appropriate is important.
It has been shown to help incorporate calcium into bone and to slow bone breakdown. Just mg. Protein: Animal or Vegetable? The effect of protein, especially animal-derived, on osteoporosis is an area of intense scientific research. Protein accounts for 25 percent of our bone mass.
Hence protein intake is a vital consideration. The studies available on this subject often focus on animal protein meat, fish, eggs, and dairy vs. At this point, the results are often contradictory, and for that reason studies continue. However, the summary overview to date of all the protein research results sounds very Cayce. Too much protein can be dangerous, but too little can be dangerous as well.
Finding the right balance is the key. Keep your colon healthy through hydrotherapy. Many therapists recommend a colonic at the change of every season.
Also, include lots of fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet. This practice will increase assimilation of nutrients such as those discussed above. Massage with peanut oil , which is good for the joints. Follow a proper diet. The Basic Cayce diet promotes assimilation and elimination. Exercise moderately. Cayce suggests a walk after dinner. There is so much we can do beyond calcium supplementation to fight osteoporosis.
True Health will keep you updated as more information is made available.

The Edgar Cayce Handbook for Health Through Drugless Therapy
My version was copywritten in and some information is out of date, e. Reilly tells an inspiring tale of how he helped a yr-old boy paralyzed since birth by spina bifida gain control of his bladder and bowels through ice packs and eventually lead a near-normal life. Reilly gives excellent discussions on the importance of circulation, assimulation, relaxation, and elimination CARE for preventive and curative medicine. He discusses diet and food combinations, exercise with several descriptions of particular ones for certain ailments , massage techniques, colonics, and internal cleansing packs using castor oil and other substances. His discussion on anti-aging is fascinating. This is an excellent reference book worth rereading several times.
