BEWARE ALL CALCIUM FORTIFIED Foods and Drinks!
I wasn’t sure if I’d get the chance to bare my arms and legs this summer but by returning to the original dosage of the protocol…
- 40,000 iu soft gel D3
- 4-600 mcg Life Extension Super K
- no dairy (OR dairy substitutes “fortified” with calcium)
- magnesium chloride used topically
…my skin cleared in about 6 weeks and I got to wear shorts and sleeveless tops in the dying days of summer. Ahhhh! Now, I did have those light blotches where the psoriasis had previously been but I could live with that.
So it seems that high calcium content foods and beverages can be just as problematic as dairy itself. It took a few months to come to that realization. Sometimes bad things turn out to be good in the long run. If I hadn’t switched to a new almond milk (with 46% calcium) and had the flare up of psoriasis, I would never have thought about:
1. rereading that Brazil Hospital study of psoriasis where they took high dosage of D3 for 6 months, eliminated dairy (and fortified non-dairy beverages)
2. checking calcium content in everything that passed my lips.
A fine example of every cloud having a silver lining:) Sigh!
I’ve also been trying to understand how the magnesium chloride really works.
And it seems that it does somewhat the same thing as the D3/K2 combination. The D3/K2 works from the inside (because we swallow it) and the magnesium chloride works from the outside (because we put it on our skin). “Magnesium deficiency can cause various abnormalities of calcium metabolism” (which is why the excess calcium ends up on our skin in the form of psoriasis plaques)!
And the more I read about magnesium chloride used topically, the more I realize how important it is for all of us—even people who don’t have psoriasis. We are all low on magnesium because of our farming methods that have taken it out of the soil. Hence the need for supplementation.
Anyway it’s all a merry little dance that keeps me awake at night trying to figure out why this works and how this works. But I guess the most important part is that IT DOES WORK.
And so as summer is coming to an end, we hope that your skin is getting better.
We got a couple of nice testimonials. And a big thank you to Sue who kindly and generously sent us a donation. As you know, we don’t sell anything, so any gifts (large or small) help us to keep going.
With much love,
