Diary of Unknown Symptoms

Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Entry for July 05, 2007

I had the day off work today and something interesting happened. Usually I have my apple and a plum for breakfast every morning but today because I was home, I didn’t have any. By the early afternoon, I could really feel my candida was getting really good.

I’m going past the Naturopathic College and I decide to check and see if they have Phosphorus. If I can’t find it in a regular health store maybe they’ll have it. Nope, they have the homeopathic version but nothing in a regular supplement. I didn’t really have much time to ask them anything else so I left.

By late in the afternoon, I had an apple as a snack and for dinner I had blackberry crepes. For added flavor I decided to add some natural honey. What a mistake…

For the rest of the evening, my nose is running and I’m sneezing. I think sugar is really a cause for my allergies and I’ve really seriously cut back on the sugar and junk food but maybe I’ll stop eating fruit for a week. I felt the most improvement with the candida when I starting taking zinc, selenium and iron so maybe if I try a simple version of the candida diet, I’ll have better success?

Here’s what I found on Bone Meal:

Bone Meal

Dollar sales of bone meal rose 432.5 percent for the year ending January 2004. A dried, processed powder made from finely ground bones (usually bovine), bone meal’s high calcium and phosphorous content is believed to give it efficacy in promoting the health of human bones and teeth. In the Textbook of Nutritional Medicine (Third Line Press, 2000), Melvyn Werbach and Jeffery Moss describe a Canadian study in which bone meal proved effective for the treatment of children with growing pains. All of the subjects who received bone meal, vitamin A and vitamin D were “completely relieved” of symptoms, while only 40 percent of the subjects receiving dicalcium phosphate, vitamin A and vitamin D found relief.

Because it has been shown to contain lead, naturopathic physicians like Alan Christianson, NMD, based in Scottsdale, Arizona, are “wary” of using it. Consumers are advised by Michael Murray and Joseph Pizzorno in their Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine (Prima Lifestyles, 1997) to ensure that the lead levels in the bone meal products they ingest do not exceed the “recommended level of 1 mcg per 800 mg of elemental calcium.”

On my way into work, I pick some up and take one teaspoon with some yogurt for breakfast. Here’s what it says on the label:

Supplement Facts
Calcium (from bone meal) – 1000mg
Phosphorus (from Bone Meal) – 400mg
Magnesium (from bone meal) – 18mg

I’m not really happy with the calcium/magnesium ratio so I’ll take one 250 mg of magnesium at the same time.

Daily Vitamins/Minerals

100 mg Zinc
750 mg Magnesium
1 scoop of Bone Meal

A couple of weeks ago, I was talking to an older person about health. He was telling me about how eating apples are really bad for your health because of the malic acid content. He continued further about how he should know because he knows a lot of people who are dentists. I didn’t tell him that I ate two apples a day so I kept quiet.

I was sceptical that anything natural could be bad for your teeth so when I got home I did some googling to find out if what he was saying was actually true. What I found, was the exact opposite.

Dental Disorders

Tooth-decay can be prevented by regular consumption of apples as they possess a mouth cleansing property. If taken after the meals, they have the same effect as a tooth brush in cleansing the teeth, with the added advantage that the acid content, aside from its nutritive value, is of assistance in promoting the flow of saliva in the mouth, which is also beneficial to the teeth. The acid of the apple also exerts an antiseptic influence upon the germs present in the mouth and teeth when it is thoroughly chewed. Apples are thus regarded as a natural preserver of the teeth and should be taken in all tooth troubles.
