I'm a 33 year old female. Recently I've returned to working full-time and that includes standing a whole lot. All of a sudden my legs are covered with vericose veins!
In reading the 108 Pages it seems that this may be caused by a calcium defeciency as I have also been experiencing charley horses, cramps, and have really horrendous teeth (they never recovered from pregnancy).
Is there anything else I need to focus on for this specific problem aside from getting some real, usable calcium into my system? What exactly causes vericose veins?
all care must be taken to eliminate fluoride from the diet. not only do the nazi despots poison tap water with fluoride, they have contaminated the food chain to the point that the average childs breakfast contains ten times the amount of fluoride in eight glasses of "optimally fluoridated water"(a gov term, of course).
this is the reason that organic certification is so important. it provides the best protection against the major sources of fluoride in food - chemical fertilizers(up to 20% of the phosphorus content - the P in NPK - can be fluorine compounds) and chemical pesticides(one of the northwests most popular pesticides for fruit and berries is 54% sodium fluoride).
i very strictly avoid non-organic apples, cranberries, blueberries, cherrries, etc. the fact is the entire food chain is poluted by this caustic chemical. it is a major cause of fluorosis(brown, brittle teeth) and osteoperosis. it is fluoride's affinity for calcium which is the problem there. the other problem is low thyroid, because the body gets fooled into using fluoride instead of iodide in producing TSH and the thyroid will actually accumulate and store this deadly chemical. obesity, anyone?
"the other problem is low thyroid, because the body gets fooled into using fluoride instead of iodide in producing TSH and the thyroid will actually accumulate and store this deadly chemical. obesity, anyone?"
Can the floride be chealated out and instead of being obese, could it cause weight loss?
I have had a problem with varicose veins since my 20's but in regards to the fluoride, I wonder is fluoride could be in well water (I guess if chemicals & pesticide were in the ground water?) or maybe I have gotten a lot of it from food. I have been losing weight for several years and haven't been 'pdugy' for years. At 115 lbs, I look very slim. I am now under 100 lbs & look sickly. (BTW, I eat no meat, very little dairy, & a lot of raw fruits, veggies, & nuts)
i believe MH has a better handle on what you may be experiencing than i.
i too smoke. however, i smoke no additive and organic tobacco from american spirit and roll my own in a machine with prefiltered tubes. my goodness, if i had not gotten away from commercial cigarettes, i would not have made it this far. on their website< http://www.nascigs.com/ >there is a list of common additives in tobacco. you will not believe it. when i switched from camels to nac my wife thought i had quit smoking because i got really irritable and the stench went away. that was the chemical additives that i was addicted to and had nothing to do with tobacco or smoking.
now i am not saying smoking is not harmful, but then just living in a major city is harmful to the lungs. the government sanctions poisoning cigarette smokers by not monitoring these additives or requiring disclosure. iguess they figure if youre stupid enough to smoke, who cares whats in it! this is not equal protection under the law, it is open season on a legal segment of our population with gross disregard to life and well being.
anyway, sorry to focus on smoking but i stick to what i know and say i dont know when i dont. that way what i say may be useful to someone. so, i did some oxygen therapy(food grade h2o2) and switched to nac(the organic is so superior to anyting else you could buy) and my emphysema went away and has not returned in three or more years. plus i have carried through with treating my extreme fatigue and depression and super low thyroid function with great success. if i had quit smoking completely it probably would have happened faster, but i was miserable enough and not that masochistic!
i think your weight problem will even out when you get all your systems functioning and flowing. the cigs deplete vitamin c like crazy and that depletion is what hurts the veins and arteries. i have heard of people avoiding surgery for anurisms with massive doses of vitC. vit c helps rebuild that kind of cartilagenous tissue.
i think the focus on your diet should change. you need fats, plant fats and oils, organic butter, fresh and raw on everything and certified organic. and plenty of distilled water. and dont mix proteins and carbs at the same meal. i would check out virgin organic cocnut oil if i were you.
it is very difficult to chelate fluoride. what i did was flood my system with good plant based iodine and used magnets to stimulate my metabolism to use up the fluoride. and of course, stayed away from all sources of fluoride as possible.
fluoride is everywhere. it is in medications such as prozac and paxil. it is in teflon and will kill birds and snakes in homes that use them. it is in stainmaster carpet, scotchguard, and water repellents for tents and boots. it is in depleted uranium - you know, the stuff that they have been shooting at arabs for the last couple of decades and that atomizes into radioactive u235 isotopes and fluorine gas and the troops breath it and get sick(gulf war syndrome) and poisons the local population(iraq has the highest percentage of breast cancer and birth defects in the world but they still like us) and eventually the planet because these tiny particles eventually circumnavigate the globe(look whos downwind of iraq).
Thank you for your answer. I didn't know that stuff about fluoride. I will check out the link on the cigs(thanks) and other info too. I use to cook with almost all teflon & only recently have I stopped. (I still have to 'cook' for my hubby) and I just now realized the pan I use to boil my water for herbal tea is a glass pan but has a teflon coating on the bottom--no more for that pan either.
It seems that when I get hungry, I reach for the 'fats', all plant. I eat raw sunflower & pumkin seed alot. I have been using a 'refined' coconut oil from Spectrum as it was the only choice available where I shop. I live in such a remote area, a lot of the organic & healthy products just aren't avialable. I have been meaning to get some online. I can eat it right out of the jar by the spoonful(s) and I know I would love the extra virgin (refined really has no taste, I just like the way it melts in your mouth).
may i suggest that you repost your question to MH and flag it - repost question for MH - so he doesnt miss it. we tend to get ahead of him here on the weekends. i have learned a tremendous lot from him and his first book(worth every penny to get it), but he never ceases to surprise and enlighten.
I can't echo Trapper enough about American Spirits. We switched to them over a year ago. We smoke so much less that the higher cost actually has us coming out ahead.
You will never be able to go back to nasty, cut/processed with who knows what tobbacco again. It smells so foul, and tastes like smoking dirty socks!
This whole process is about learning in bits and pieces, and then putting those into practice. That keeps things managable, and do-able. If we learned everything on the first day, our heads would explode with the knowledge! lol
I might ask, do you smoke? I do (wish I didn't) and I truly believe smoking has a direct effect on the veins, circulatory system.
Also, here is what my Dr. Christopher's aliment CD says about varicose veins:
A twisted, widened vein with incompetent valves.
Sugars, pastries, soft and alcoholic beverages, breads, candies, etc., leach the calcium out of the body, causing varicose veins, cramps, Charlie horses, loss of teeth, nervous upsets, etc.
Christopher recommends the bone, flesh, & cartlidge formula (BFC) and what he calls Calc tea. MH has these formulas.
Here's what the CD says about calc tea (aka herbal calcium formula):
Herbal Calcium Formula is a wonderful all natural calcium formula. It is a synergistic blend of the following herbs: Horsetail Grass, Nettle Leaves, Oatstraw Herb & Lobelia Herb. As explained in the book, Biological Transmutations, the silica in horsetail grass converts to calcium, and the other herbs work in close conjunction with this master calcium herb. We need calcium for nerve sheath, vein and artery walls, bone, teeth, etc. This combination is helpful for cramps, “Charlie horses,” successful pregnancies, growing children and maintaining adults alike, healthy bones, teeth, hair, skin and nails, healthy eyes and for all calcium needs in the body.
