My aunt has a very high level of calcification because of a parathyroid condition. (Osteo and constipation ) then a milk craving .. then took the once a month calcium pill , till she disregarded the instructions to take, and got a throat problem and very sick.
What I am asking...can this overload be due to something malfunction somewhere? fibrous tissue which lead to cyst's, and she has fatty tumors (beneign) all over her arms and such, .as well as fibroid tumors in the uterous ( us both), is it from lack of balanced magnesium? want a mag citrate but can't find just that ingred. I don't want to follow in her footsteps. and stop the condition .she now looks like (CTscan) cancerous tumors and cyst's now, at 88 yrs. We aren't sure without a biopsy's Gyno/Oncologist cant be sure but she feels the beneign has gone into malignancy..(?) her tumor is size of 6 month pregnancy now that she's lost 10 lbs over such a short period of time..now she is needing to go to the bathroom every few minutes now. in the nursing home as of last week, its getting to be a problem.
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:
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.
