Kidney stones can be caused by an imbalance with calcium. Especially low calcium for a time causing the parathyroid hormone to overreact. Low calcium can also be caused by high phosphorous especially if one drinks soda pop. Pop leaches calcium out of the body.
Excess calcium in the tissue may also get stored in the soft tissues of the body. Calcium when it enters the body through the intestine and into the blood needs to be transported to the bones and the teeth.
First you need to decide do you need extra calcium. A hair tissue mineral analysis will help decide this. The calcium to phosphorous ratio is significant. Also the calcium to magnesium ratio.
HOW MINERALS MOVE IN THE BODY
Minerals can move in and out of cells by three methods, concentration, electrical voltage or under power by using a pump such as the sodium potassium ATP pump.
Concentration works by flow going from the highest concentration to the lowest concentration looking for balance.
Electrical voltage action potential works as is implied by moving minerals relative to inter cellular and extra cellular voltage differences.
And lastly a pump which uses energy can pump against a concentration gradient. In this case the energy is supplied by ATP adenosine triphosphate, which needs magnesium to function.
HOW CALCIUM MOVES IN THE BODY
There is homeostasis or balance with calcium that is looked for.
PARA THYROID HORMONE
The thyroid gland has two parts. On the back of it are the parathyroid glands. The Thyroid gland releases calcitonin which makes calcium salts deposit calcium into the bone tissue. When there is too much calcium in the blood.
The Parathyroid releases Parathyroid hormone. PTH is released when we have a decrease in blood calcium. Which results in the bone giving up calcium and phosphorous to the blood, thereby causing bone degeneration.
HOW VITAMIN D IS ACTIVATED, A KIDNEY ENZYME
It targets in the kidney, an enzyme 1 alpha hydroxylase. which activates vitamin D. Which has a feedback loop to the Para Thyroid gland, Inhibiting it and increasing calcium absorption in the blood increasing plasma calcium levels.
WHERE DOES VITAMIN D COME FROM
It comes from the skin, 7 dehydrocholesterol is in the skin . When the suns uv rays hit the skin it converts the enzyme to vitamin d3. It then moves to the kidneys where it is part of the calcium absorption Para Thyroid feed back loop. Para thyroid hormone increases plasma calcium. Calcitonin decreases plasma calcium.
LOW CALCIUM PARATHYROID HORMONE AND KIDNEYSTONES
Continuous low calcium levels causes continuous dumping of Para Thyroid Hormone PTH telling your body to keep robing your bones of calcium. When you keep getting calcium dumped into the blood the kidney has to keep filtering it and it cant keep up, and makes kidney stones. So kidney stones can be caused by low calcium.
With out of balance calcium, and not enough potassium to deliver calcium to the bone, there may be high plasma calcium and high intercellular calcium resulting calcium deposits or “ious”, tendentious, bursitis’s.
High intercellular calcium can slow down the thyroid and decrease you energy. This can happen by having the bile in the gall bladder thicken partly with calcium and inefficiently remove one iodine molecule to convert t4 to t3 .
This can happen as 80 percent of the t4 to t3 conversion of thyroid hormone happens in the liver and is assisted by the bile in the gall bladder. If bile is to thick or you don’t have enough bile the conversion may me hampered.
Lemon apple cedar vinegar for liver detox and thin bile.
If you eat to much green salads or foods that make oxalates, and have excess calcium in the kidney you get :oxalates plus calcium = kidney stones . Citrates from the lemon will dissolve the stones or prevent the stones from happening. Therefore you can continue to have foods high in oxalates.
If the thyroid slows down the adrenals sometimes pick up the slack and it puts more pressure on them, which may lead to burnout and less available energy.
Vitamin d and k assist in calcium absorption, transport, and delivery. These are fat soluble vitamins. The fats you eat are also important. The type and amount of fats is important. Low fat diets may affect this. Also types of fats and there component ratios are important.
Some types of calcium can be more easily absorbed. Calcium oxide in most drug store vitamins is best not used as a supplement.
You stomach acid ph. can affect calcium absorption. Low ph. meaning ph. with a higher number can affect absorption. If you have low ph., you may also have acid indigestion or gerd. The amount of salt you use and the type of salt can be looked at. Low salt diets result in lower ph and weaker stomach acid. Salt to taste just increase potassium to adjust sodium to potassium ratio.Also it you eat tums or ant acids this may affect stomach acid ph. You need to check your hair analysis ratios to determine how to proceed.
Also the emotional stress that a person is under can raise the calcium levels in the body. This results in a belief or feeling of being stuck. I use NLP neuro linguistic programing or walking hypnosis for this.
A report will tell you the amounts and ratios of calcium in your body. This will help determine your oxidization rate, or the speed you metabolize things in your body. The ca to p ratio or calcium to phosphorous ratio is one method. The other method is to look at the na to k or sodium to potassium ratio versus the ca to mg, or calcium to magnesium ratio.
The “itisous”, tendonitis bursitis may be clues to build up calcium in the soft tissue. Also cataracts. The arteries as plaguing.
Other minerals act as calcium channel blockers or antagonists to calcium. They also have to be balanced.
