Arthritis & Osteoporosis… Calcium Could Be The Answer
Osteoporosis: As told by Dr. Joel D. Wallach BS., DVM, ND
Let’s look at Osteoporosis, the number 10 killer of adults in the United States. Remember, 75% of those over the age of 65 who fracture a hip or leg bone may not live 90 days. Also, it’s the most horrible disease when it comes to human misery and dollars spent. Osteoporosis… Think of the special vans, and the lift gates, and the ramps and the elevators, the special plumbing in homes and public buildings. Special parking places, wheelchairs and walkers and canes. Think of the beds and the chairs with little electric motors to lift you up when you can’t stand up by yourself, physical therapists, joint replacement surgery, pharmaceuticals, and doctor’s visits. We’re talking billions of dollars for nothing more than a calcium deficiency disease. Now as horrible a disease as Osteoporosis is, in human beings, we don’t have Osteoporosis in animals because we don’t have Blue Cross, Blue Shield, major medical hospitalization, Medicare and Medicaid to pay for non-essential surgical treatments for mineral deficiencies, we’ve learned that by putting animals who are weaned off their mother’s milk onto 10 cents of calcium as soon as they are weaned, they won’t get arthritis or Osteoporosis. It’s amazing how that works.
Now a lot of my patients say, “Look, Doc, I have been taking 2000mg calcium everyday for 20 years, because I knew it was good for me, yet I still have hypertension, insomnia, loose teeth, receding gums, low back problems, bone spurs, kidney stones, arthritis, osteoporosis, all the stuff you say I shouldn’t have. I’ve been taking 2000mg calcium everyday”. I said “Well what kind do you take?” He said “I take calcium gluconate, calcium citrate, calcium lactate, oyster shell, eggshell, I take things like Tums.” I said “Well, there’s your problem. If you take 1000mg calcium lactate, for example, you’re not getting 1000mg of calcium, because 86%, 860mg is lactose, or milk sugar. Only 14%, or 140mg is metallic or elemental calcium, and let’s use 10% for usability factors, a fair number, plus its easy math, 10% of 140mg is 14. So if you take 2 of those calcium lactate tablets, each 1000mg, you’re not getting 2,000mg of calcium, you’re getting 2 times 14, or 28 mg. To get 2000mg of calcium from these 1000mg calcium lactate tablets, you would have to take 30 of those with each meal. Almost a full 100 tablet bottle of these calcium lactate tablets a day. And of course, at $5 a bottle for the cheapest one, you’re looking at $150 per month just for calcium. You’ve 59 more minerals to go, 16 vitamins, 12 essential amino acids, 3 essential fatty acids, so this is not an economical way to get your nutrients as elemental minerals. Also, if you took in 90 tablets of anything a day, you’re going to get what we call B&F disease. B&F disease stands for belching and farting. You’re going to sound like an elephant out in the bush with a horrible gastro-intestinal problem. And of course you know you have B&F disease when your spouse has to throw a canary in the bathroom to know if it is safe to go in there.

Bone Spurs (actually osteoperosis)
Then, of course, there’s kidney stones. And then there are bone spurs, heel spurs, and calcium deposits. Again, physicians will tell you the first thing to give up officially is calcium and dairy, because they have this ignorant belief, the foolish belief, the stupid belief that the kidney stones, bone spurs, heel spurs, and calcium deposits come from your diet, when instead it only comes from your bones when you have a raging Osteoporosis. And when you get these things, you need more calcium, not less.

“Yeah, if you’ll give a bull calf ten cents worth of calcium everyday after he is weaned, he’ll never get Osteoporosis.” – Dr. Joel D. Wallach
