It sounds like maybe she has Hyperparathyroid, which caused by too much hormone form the parathyroid gland.This calcium build up is from too much hormone from the gland, and is not caused from the diet....but I can't be sure from the information you provided if that is the case. If it is hyperparathyroid, it would have to be treated to stop the hormone production, which will stop the calcification.
Without knowing the cause of the calcification, it is a shot in the dark trying to give an answer of how to stop it. I don't have any history on the person to give you accurate information. I can send you to many links about calcification, and give you different treatments, but if you don't know the cause you can't treat it!! Messing around with vitamins and electrolytes in the body without knowing what your doing is very dangerous!
Causes of some types of calcification under the skin are:
- vitamin D toxicity ( to much)
- magnesium deficiency (to little)
- vitamin K deficiency may be linked to arterial calcification
- Dermatomyositis ( inflamatory disease of the muslces)
- The use of compound complex magnesium has shown promise in the treatment of calcification
KINDS OF FOODS ARE ACID-FORMING
The most strongly acid-forming foods are meat products of all kinds, including chicken and fish. Carnivorous animals hunt, pounce on and devour their prey, including the bones and blood which contains the alkaline minerals. There is no cooking, fragmenting or processing involved. These animals have the enzyme uricase to break down the uric acid. They also have the anatomical structure for this kind of seating, with short digestive tracts to reduce putrefaction, very large livers and kidneys to detoxify and eliminate waste products, high concentration of hydrochloric acid and protein digesting enzymes to dissolve bones and animal muscle fibers and high levels of mucus secretion in the stomach to protect the stomach lining against the acid and enzymes.
Avoid alot of Red meats in the diet. Eat Alkaline forming foods. These are fruits, vegetables, and sprouted seeds in an unheated and unprocessed form.The foods that provide alkaline minerals are raw fruits and vegetables. Sprouts should be added as a winter vegetable when fresh produce is less likely to be available. Sweet fruits, such as unsulphured raisins and dates are especially good when combined with green, leafy vegetables. Steamed vegetables can be added to the diet, if desired, with a raw vegetable salad. Fats, oils, salt, sharp spices and condiments, vinegar and alcohol are to be avoided since they are irritants and interfere with the digestive process.
I hope this helps,
Good luck! If you find out anymore of her medical history I can be more in dept.
