(© 9 May 2019: Dr. V. M. Palaniappan:  vmpalaniappan@gmail.com)

I, along with 49 other friends went on a 10 days (23 April - 2 May 2019) holiday trip to Turkey (from Malaysia), lead by Mr. N. Subramaniam & Mr. Vairavan, and enjoyed visiting several sights.

One such unforgettable and most wonderful spot was a CALCIUM HOT SPRING! 
All of us walked through, and that was a real experience - to me, this was more exciting than the HOT AIR BALLOON flying (after paying US$230.00)!

Being a health-care analyst, I could appreciate this experience more than any one else!

I walked through, along with hundreds of tourists from all over the world, bare-footed, avoiding the slippery rocks, to some distance, and also DRANK the CALCIUM WATER that was flowing out from a HOT SPRING. It tasted nice, and was like salted SODA water. 

Several of the rock surfaces had LICHEN colonies (fungus + algal association, called Kal Paasi = கல் பாசி in Tamil, similar to what is being used while cooking Briyani rice, mutton, fish, etc.).

Such surfaces were slippery, and I slipped and fell into the flowing water - thanks to my Ecological Healing System practices - my bones did NOT crack or break, neither had any bit of pain! (However, it took several hours for my body heat to dry my wet clothes, for I had no extra clothes to change!). 

I just explored the details about this Calcium spring in Google search. People claim a wide variety of health benefits. However, a few of them appear to be mere guessed exaggerations!

I believe, I can provide some scientific evidence-based data on this:

Being very alkaline, especially with CALCIUM, this can contribute to the following benefits: 
(1)    calcium can get filled within all the soft cells in the body (helped by the 'sucking effect' of Mitochondria within the cells), and gently swell up.

That is precisely what makes the movie stars develop wrinkle-free, smooth and polished face, with dimples when the right amount of filling has taken place.

Cleopatra is said to have had this bath to retain her much-adored skin texture - I fully agree: That must have been definitely true!

(2) If a person feels 'heaty' or feverish, drinking a cup of this calcium water once every hour thrice or so should correct it, for the fever develops because of virus making the body ACID (hyper acidosis) - calcium neutralizes the acidity.

(3) If a person suffering from chickenpox, smallpox, measles or any such virus- caused infectious disease bathes (soaking) in this water, the disease should vanish overnight!

(4) Drinking this water (about 500 ml, in addition to about 1.5 L of purified (normal) water daily would make a skeletal-looking person put on weight, while the same can make a person over-weight and obese as well. Going over-board - i.e., drinking too much of such a calcium-rich water daily for a prolonged period, based on my research, can give rise to type-2 diabetes, kidney stone (renal calculi), heart-blockages, thickening of the blood vessels (arteriosclerosis), cysts, fibroid, poly-cystic ovary, endometriosis, lumps, erratic menses, and even cancers - all types including Leukaemia (blood cancer), by ruining the red blood cells through iron destruction, and also increasing the white blood cells.

Regular and excessive calcium intake, by NIGHT, and its stagnancy in the lymph vessels can give rise to cancers in the lymph ducts.

Overall, again based on my research, it would be better to take bath in this water about once or twice week (this suggestion is not based on any definite experimentation), drink this water at a rate of, say, half a glass or 100 ml of it daily, in addition to the 'normal' drinking water. This should keep the person very healthy with perhaps a correct level of immunity against virus diseases.

If YOU, after reading this, want to practice what I have suggested, as per Law, YOU should consult a Registered Medical Practitioner (Western medicine)  prior to doing so.

(I think, you should look for a doctor who has good research knowledge in chemistry, toxicology, nutrient ecology, dietetics, body physiology, endocrinology, cardiology and oncology!).

Dear Friends,

I am putting up this article in our Blog after a long pause. 

The big gap in posting articles in our Blog had definite reasons: 

I have been trying to concentrate on: 

(a) attending to patients in great need for their health recovery from major health problems, 

(b) trying to amalgamate all the information pertaining to Ecological Healing System under one 'roof' - in our Website www.ecotherapy.com.my/: Ms. Priya has been helping me on this all this while, and 

(c) been spending most of my time in attending to Facebook / WhatsApp messages, etc.

From now on, Mr. Bagavathi, an expert in Website creation and management, has started helping us. Hence, I believe, you can expect much nicer and more useful input from all angles. 

With best wishes and thanks to you all for all your kind support, and also to Googles organisation for all their facilities!

Dear Friends,

Sincere greetings to you!

A few people have been showing intense interest in many of the articles I have published in this Blog. 

Nearly all of them have a common complain:

They say that they are not able to find / retrieve my former articles in this blog, and that my Blog is not user-friendly.

I fully agree to what they have been highlighting. 

I believe I am a good thinker, and am able to write excellent critiques (pardon my boasting).

However, what is lacking in me is that I am not at all good in handling or managing the Blog site.

Hence, I have been making a mess of the presentations. I certainly need some help.

Anyway, until such time, it occurred to me that I should put UP ALL of our 352 Blog articles in the WEBSITE, which is:


Miss Priya has volunteered, and has been helping me substantially in this regard.

She has already transferred nearly all of our BLOG article to this site.

(She told me that she too is learning to do a better job of it, and extended her apologies for the interim inadequacies you may encounter there now.)

May I request you to kindly visit the above website, and see not only the 352 articles, but also several other, very useful inclusions:

I am sure, you will be happy you did it.

I will soon start putting up more beneficial articles, including some useful YOUTUBE presentations:

(Right now, what I have included as YouTube talks are in Tamil language.) 

However, I will soon put up YouTube talks in ENGLISH.

(© Dr.V.M.Palaniappan, PhD: 21 March 2018)

My friend Mr. N. Jayasubramaniam in Kuala Lumpur, also the chief administrator of an interesting WhatsApp Group, became much  concerned about some of our friends confused whether or not to take Lactobacillus plantarum with K2 in the place of Statins for the suppression / prevention of high cholesterol-related heart problems

It occurred to me that I should write on this for the benefit of several such people who are ‘addicted’ to taking statins since several years.

The following information, especially the preventive & curative procedures for the protection against heart attacks, are based exclusively on my own research, and you cannot find them anywhere else than my own publications.

1.    Everybody knows that Statins are pharmaceutical products meant to keep the cholesterol content in the blood within a harmless range, so that one need not fear of an unexpected heart attack  

During the past three decades or so, doctors have been liberally prescribing statins. So much so, the general public has become somewhat overly concerned about a possible heart attack if they avoided taking the drug.

However, nowadays, many appear to be against the use of statins because of the many undesirable side-effects. 

Of course, I am one of those who do not believe in taking Statins for this ‘a bit over-exaggerated’ threat.

There is already a strong belief that the use of statins is bad for people with type-2 diabetes. The drug is said to worsen the condition.

2.      Mayo Clinic (1998-2018) has the following to say: 

“While statins are highly effective, they have been linked to muscle pain, digestive problems and mental fuzziness in some people and may rarely cause liver damage.   

Statins include atorvastatin (Lipitor), fluvastatin (Lescol), lovastatin (Altoprev), pitavastatin (Livalo), pravastatin (Pravachol), rosuvastatin (Crestor) and simvastatin (Zocor).”
    3.    According to Wikipedia (2018): (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lactobacillus


It is common knowledge that the bacteria are recognisable as of two different kinds:

1.    Gram-positive bacteria

2.    Gram-negative bacteria.

Gram-positive bacteria does not have an outer membrane, and therefore, it can be easily destroyed by taking antibiotics.

Lactobacillus acidophilus is a bacteria that  is a Gram-positive.

This is naturally present in our saliva, stomach and intestine.

When a living microorganism, when consumed in a living state, gives some health benefits, it is called a Probiotic.

*   *   *   *   *   *

This word “Probiotic” came into use only since 1980 or so, based on what the Nobel laureate Élie Metchnikoff told the world in 1907, based ib gus observation that the farmers in Bulgari lived a longer life because of taking yoghurt*.   

The English word yoghurt is called “Thayiru” in Tamil. When diluted with water, it called “Moru”.  

In Tamil Nadu, the thayiru has been part of everybody’s lunch-time diet all the time.  

I have been consuming it from my childhood – from the age of two or so, and that was in 1940!  It has been a home-made items all the time.  

The only lacking matter was that, we have NOT been calling it PROBIOTIC in English! However, we have been calling it thus in Tamil language!   

All other Indians too have similar words in their regional languages, for nearly all the Indians have been taking it from time immemorial! *  

(* It is very funny!  

It is said that the Indiansn India, particularly the South Indians, and more so the Tamil Nadu people, called the Tamilians, have been consuming the yoghurt since more than about 10,000 years – the Tamil literature has numerous and clear references on this.   

It has been vividly described in the literature of Siddha medicine (the traditional Tamil System of medicine) that dates back to BC 10,000 to BC4,000 has substantial evidences on this (National Inst. Siddha, 2018:  http://nischennai.org/ siddhamedicine.html).   

The entire situation appears to be in a sad state!   

While it is true that the Tamils have already recognised the value of yoghurt as a probiotic some 10 thousand years ago, it required a Nobel Laureate to inform the same to the world, only a century ago, and that too based on his observation of the lifestyle of people he was aware of.  

The values of, or even the medicinal properties of the yoghurt, has been vividly described in the Siddha literature.

*   *   *   *   *   *

Lactobacillus acidophilus is a Probiotic. It helps in the digestion of food in the gastro-intestinal tract, and also prevents ‘bad’ bacteria from giving health problems.  

This bacteria turns sugars into lactic ACID - ferments MILK into YOGHURT (i.e, thayiru), which is a PROBIOTIC, and helps in digestion, ulcerative colitis, etc.

If the yoghurt (thayiru) is used for washing the vagina, the disease causing yeast Candida albicans infection (that can even be transmitted to men while having sex with infected women) can get eradicated (Health Guidance, 2018: http://www.healthguidance.org/entry/15629/1/ Treatment-for-Candida-Albicans.html)

*   *   *   *   *   *  

Lactobacilus plantarum is another species of the same bacteria genus, also present in our saliva, in vagina, and the like (Wikipedia, 2018: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lactobacillus_plantarum 

This too is a probiotic, and can help protect the gastro-intestinal system, help in digestion, fight against some infectious organisms, and the like.

This microbe takes in Oxygen, and turns it into Hydrogen peroxide.

The latter can kill other undesirable bacteria in its vicinity. In other words, L. plantarum can help us by destroying other harmful bacteria in our gastro-intestinal tract.

This L. plantarum is present in PICKLES* (and that is good for us), cheese, and several such fermented products.

(* That is why, again, the south Indians have been taking pickles made of a wide variety of vegetables with their yoghurt-mixed rice, called “Thayir Choru”. 

Whether the pickles are made in the traditional way, or they are prepared using Vinegar (synthetic or from fruits such as apple cider) as they do it in the restaurants for instant consumption, they are still good as probiotics!

The pickles have the capacity to kill the unwanted bacteria present in the intestinal tract!

At this, it may be of interest to know that garlic pickles and mango pickles are the best for this purpose, while all the others too possess such beneficial properties.)

This species works on several proteins, and produces ACETIC ACID (we often call it vinegar) through a fermentation process. Many undesirable organisms will get eliminated by this end-product. 

Some people may get severe SKIN ITCH due to some ALLERGIES*

(* This can happen because of the production of histamines in the body when one consumes OLD protein-rich food (cooked a day or more earlier, and 'spoilt' by other bacteria), often treated with some anti-histamine tablets)

This L. plantarum can help in ‘curing’ it to some extent. It is the Acetic acid that is produced by this bacteria that helps.

In other words, even Vinegar (i.e., the acetic acid that is made from fruits, or in a synthetic manner that can be purchased from supermarkets, or in your grocery shops), should also be able to help overcome such allergic reactions or skin itches for a while.

It is said that L. plantarum can also help in correcting the problem of Irritable Bowel Syndrom (IBS) (Wikipedia, 2018: (https://en.wikipedia. org/wiki/Lactobacillus_plantarum)

However, L. plantarum is said to spoil the IRON mineral, and therefore, may not help build haemoglobin / red blood cell.

When it comes to the use L plantarum in the place of statins, I don’t think that has the ability to work on fatsit works only on proteins.

HOWEVER, since recent times, people have started believing that THIS bacteria L plantarum, in combination with Vitamin K2 as supplement CAN PREVENT the build-up of cholesterol in the blood.

Eupedia (vBulletin Solutions  2018) elaborates much on the production and beneficial effects of Vitamin-K https://www.eupedia.com/forum/threads /31972-Beneficial-gut-bacteria-that-produce-vitamins-B2-B9-B12-and-K2.

Vitamin K2 is known to prevent and even reverse arteriosclerosis.

Can the above statement be true?

YES! IT CAN BE TRUE, INDIRECTLY, for the following reasons:

The CHOLESTEROL as such may NOT get destroyed or reduced, by taking Lactobacillus plantarum + Vitamin K2, for this bacteria works only on PROTEINS, and produces ACID – ACETIC ACID, also known as Vinegar!

When people have a HIGH BUILD-UP OF CALCIUM in their body, essentially due to TWO reasons:


(2) Calcium re-absorption from FAECES when people defecate SLIME (shapeless, a bit watery-kind of faeces),

their BLOOD VESSEL WALLS (both outside and inside the HEART) get THICKENED (i.e., aretrio- or atherosclerosis + blockages develop), and the CHOLESTEROL, if it happens to be too much in the blood, THAT can give HEART ATTACK!

These TWO substances (i.e., end-product of the bacteria and K2 vitamin), being ACIDs, they will REMOVE very effectively the CALCIUM ACCUMULATIONS within the body, as well as within the BLOOD VESSELS & HEART*. 

(* Such calcium accumulations form the main culprits that cause the blood vessel thickening and heart blockages)

THAT (i.e., the removal of calcium) will prevent heart attacks. Therefore, one need not take STATINS.

In other words, the answer to the question asked, whether or not taking L. palntarum + Vitamin K can replace the intake of Statin, is ‘YES, IT WILL HELP’*.  

(* Law in several countries, including Malaysia, require that you get the approval of an MBBS-qualified doctor, even if he has qualified with a third-class degree only yesterday, and registered to practice today, legally, he can approve your stopping of statin, and I cannot! So, it would be better for you (or any reader of this article) to get such an approval before listening to my observations!)

If I were the person with high cholesterol, I would PREVENT the formation of cholesterol in the body by some easy-to-follow PREVENTION methods.

If I have high cholesterol in my body, I would EAT pickles (preferably made the Indian way by the Tamil people) with my RICE mixed with sour MORU / THAYIRU (உப்புச் சேர்த்த புளித்த மோரு / தயிரு) (i.e., yoghurt), DAILY AS PART OF MY LUNCH (and not with dinner).

The bacteria Lactobacillus acidophilus is, most probably,  more effective than its sister species L. plantarum.

Garlic Pickles and Mango pickles are better than any other.  Reason being, garlic and unripe mangos are ACIDS in themselves, and therefore, they should be more effective than others.

If you ask me, which one of these is best among the two, I would go for GARLIC PICKLES, for it has many more medicinal values as well!

Do you know another amusing fact?

The normal Assam Jawa (in Malay), PuLLi ( புளி in Tamil), Tamarind (in English) added while cooking some vegetables and ‘kuzhambu, especially FISH GRAVY, is another very BEST ANTI-HEART ATTACK ‘medicine’*.

(* It is sad that the Western medical fraternity still does not know much about the South Indian diet and the medicinal properties of each of the items consumed.

However, it is pleasing to know that, since recent past, the Westerners have started realising the benefits of the traditional diet of South Indians.)

When it comes to the avoidance of cholesterol build up in the blood, I normally tell my patients NOT to resort to statins, but to PREVENT the excessive formation of the ‘bad’ cholesterol (Low Density Lipids – LDL) within the body.


Step-1: Avoid the build-up of cholesterol in the blood, by preventing trans-fatty acids that are present in cooking oils that are repeatedly used. (Avoid eating oil-fried eatables from street stalls and restaurants)

Step-2: Eat YOUGURT (Thayiru or Moru) mixed with RICE, at lunch time, daily. Along with it, also take pickles of some kind, preferably garlic or mango ones. It will make a delicious combination.

The L. acidophilus has also been reported to have the property of reducing lignin cellulosic tissues (Wikipedia, 2018).

That can be taken to mean, that it can protect the feet from forming very thick and hardened corn-like horny tissues. However, this requires more verification.

This bacteria L. acidophilus is said to convert oxygen into hydrogen peroxide, as said earlier,  and that would keep away all other food spoiling bacteria.

That is why Thayir Choru (i.e., a blend of rice with yoghurt and salt) does NOT get spoilt for a long duration even outside the fridge *.

(*  Again, that is why, in the past, prior to the introduction of automobiles, when people in Tamil Nadu, India, travelled in bullock carts that took a few days to reach remotely located destinations, they took with them this Thayir Choru in a container, and ate them until they reached  their destination. This was so because, there were no restaurants of the modern-kind at that time in history. 

As a reminder of this cultural tradition, even today, the Chettiars of Tamil Nadu (or wherever they are) prepare this Thayir Choru, calling it Katti (i.e., packed) Choru, and give it to a newly married couple prior to their ‘departure’ to the bridegroom’s home. This has been so because, the Thayir Choru keeps its good quality without getting spoiled by air-borne bacteria.)

Step-3: Also include some / any pickle that tastes sour, while eating Thayiru Choru or Moru Choru (i.e., rice with yoghurt), daily.

Step-4: Eat gravy (kuzhmbu) made with Tamarind / Assam jawa / PuLLi. This can be consumed twice or thrice a week.

(Fish curry is made with tamarind. So, you can eat this curry, however, remember, the rich calcium content in the fish will nullify the good effects of tamarind to some extent.)

Above all the above, if you are a firm believer of only the Western medicine, don’t trust anything that is oriental, and if you happen to have a lot of money, by all means go ahead taking pharmaceutical products containing “L. plantarum +K2”.

I have published (in English) in my BLOG, an elaborate article on this. If time permits, you should be able to find it in my Website: www.ecohealingsystem.com,

Or, that can also be viewed in my BLOG: http://ecohealingsystem.blogspot.com 

*   *   *   *   *   *   

Well friends,

(a)  I hope the above article is of use to you.

I am aware that most of the Indians, especially many among those  who worked in the plantation industries in Malaysia, appear to have totally forgotten the habit of taking yoghurt/thayiru as an end-part of their daily lunch.

It would be nice if they begin to practice again their ancestral / traditional habit of such a consumption.

One thing that makes me happy is that, nearly all Indians take pickles.

Again, some of the ‘highly informed’  Indians avoid taking pickles because of the ‘threat’ forwarded by their doctors who frighten them saying that the salt content in the pickles would raise their blood pressure which can kill them later.

I take plenty of salt.

I have given an excellent and scientific explanation as how and why salt is NOT the culprit for raising the B/P in people, but it is the abstinence of NOT drinking enough water! (See Palaniappan, V.M. 2001. Heart Problems: Causes, Cure and Prevention.)

(b)  I did not contribute anything to our BLOG for the past 2 months. The reason for that was: I was travelling in India, attending to some patients with liver problems and the like. Hence, it occurred to me that it is high time that I do this, now!

(© 26 November 2017: Dr. V. M. Palaniappan, PhD. vmpalaniappan@gmail.com)

Dear Friends,

I was away from Malaysia for the past about three months, travelling around in India. Hence, I could not evaluate the recent developments in the area of health science.

The first news that drew my attention was in an article in Medical Xpress that had the following headline, and the full story can be read through: https://medicalxpress.com/news/2017-11-weight-loss-womenin-medium-term.html?utm_source=nwletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=daily-nwletter 
Exercise alone does not lead to weight loss in women—in the medium term November 23, 2017 by Hans-Peter Kubis, The Conversation. The original article was published in the journal Applied Physiology, Nutrition, and Metabolism (2017). DOI: 10.1139/apnm-2017-0577 

In brief, people/women who do exercises with a view to reducing their body weight tend to reduce their food intake as well. Hence, one may not be able to say for sure which one gave them the result.

Some scientists subjected women to exercises and monitored their weight loss, and the result is what is revealed in the headlines above.

Dieting is said to help in losing weight, but exercises may not.

According to the scientists, ‘healthy eating’ includes AVOIDANCE of processed and SUGARY food, and also avoidance of SNACKS.

*   *   *   *   *   *

Let us evaluate this finding a little further:

The long-standing belief in the medical world is:

If you eat more food than you spend as energy, that extra is bound to get stored in the body.

Frequent eating, fast food and sugar tend to increase your body weight, and therefore, you are told to avoid them.

That stored food makes you obese. Therefore burn it off, and you will not turn overweight.

They say if you eat sugary food and take snacks frequently, you are bound to put on weight.

It is here I beg to differ:

It is NOT over-eating (or frequent eating of snacks) in terms of energy-providing calories that increases one’s body weight.

For instance, if you are going to eat abundant plain rice – more than what you can spend, you will not put on weight!

On the other hand, if you eat large quantities of cheese, milk, butter, eggs, sea food, biscuits, cakes, chocolates, over-ripe fruits such as tender papaya, etc. you may quickly end up being obese.

Eating meat and other fats tend to put on MEDIOCRE weight in people who live in COLD regions, such as highlands in the tropics, and temperate countries, Polar Regions and the like.

I think, one needs to recollect the body frame of a goat that is native of the tropics, and compare that with a lamb of any of the cold countries.

Both these, similar to rabbits and several other herbivorous animals, graze leafy materials NON-STOP, from dawn until it is dark. However, they do not feed on cheese, butter, eggs, sea food, biscuits, cakes, chocolates, etc.

If you dissect the body of a temperate country’s lamb, you will find a very thick layer of white FAT under their skin.

Whereas, the tropical goat will NOT have such a layer.

Let us see what particular factor contributes to these variations:

Living in cold climate requires the development of a thick fat layer to avoid death due to freezing. Thermal insulation becomes a necessity for survival.

Whereas, living in the warm climate in the tropical countries does not require such a protection. For that matter, excessive layer of fat may melt off in the hot climate.

Hence, in the process of evolution, the above have become genetic.

The presence of fat layer that arises from the food consumed is bound to increase the body weight of the animal in a country with cold climate. The fat layer can be excessively thick if the animal grazes excessive feed.

In the tropical-living animals, the over-consumed feed does NOT seem to form a thick fat layer under the skin, and the weight increase does not seem to be any significant.

If over-eating is to contribute to overweight, why then over-eating RICE does not make a person obese?

Again, if over-eating is the causative factor for obesity, why then the women who did exercises (as said in the article cited above) did not significantly lose weight?

Let us look into it a bit deeper:

In my recognition, over-consumption of food sure would increase the body weight of a person, but only to a SMALL extent.

Whereas, the TRUE OBESITY in the over-eating people appear to be coming from some other source, but that does NOT seem to be from plain CALORY EXCESSES – hence the above-reported finding.

If yes, what exactly can be the causative factor for the problem of overweight and obesity?

The difference between weight contributing group of eatables (viz., cheese, milk, butter, eggs, sea food, biscuits, cakes, chocolates, over-ripe fruits, etc.) and the non-contributing RICE should be the culprit.

What could that be?

The moment one names cheese, butter, egg, etc., what comes immediately to the mind is that they are rich in FAT. Hence, they can be blamed at once.

If fat is what is to be blamed, FISH or other sea food (of course, with some exceptions), biscuits and OVER-RIPE FRUITS may not have significant quantities of fats.

One thing that is common to ALL the weight-contributing eatables, with the exception of over-ripe fruits, is the PRESENCE OF PLENTY OF CALCIUM.

My 42-years of study shows that it is only CALCIUM in EXCESS (than what is needed for the body’s well-being) that makes a person overweight and obese.

How does Calcium mineral make a person overweight or obese?

Likewise, how then the over-ripe fruits, which may not have much calcium in them (in a manner comparable to cheese or seafood), does the same harm?

Let me explain the science of it:

Adult humans need only about 450 or 500 mg of Calcium per day.

 Children, since they need more for growing up, tend to require about 900 or 1000mg daily.

The above being the norm, what would happen when one consumes calcium-rich seafood, calcium-enriched consumables or even calcium supplements?

For certain, the quantity would go high up beyond the coping capacity of the body.

Human body is designed to deal with such abnormalities.

When one consumes far too much of calcium (or any such substance), if and when that happens to be water-soluble, all the excesses get rejected and are pushed into the drainage system – to be part of the LYMPHATIC fluid*.

(* The Calcium  excesses, which are highly alkaline, cannot be carried by the blood because, the pH of the blood would drastically get raised from being pH7.35 or so to a much higher reading, causing instant death of the person. Therefore, the Calcitonin that comes from the Thyroid gland, ‘pushes’ such Calcium excess into the Lymphatic System.)

The lymph takes the Calcium to the urinal bladder, through the kidneys.

When the person urinates, the Calcium excesses would get out of the body, thus leaving the person’s body in a healthy state.

How then a person can turn obese because of the Calcium excesses?

If we take 100 ml of water, and dissolve in it some salt, only a definite quantity of the salt will dissolve. That is called the Saturation Point. The water will not be able to dissolve more than that point.

If a person drinks in a day, say, 2 L of water, and urinates nearly all of it, may be all the Calcium EXCESSES would get dissolved in THAT quantity of water and may get out of the body in the 2 L urine voided.

On the other hand, if that person urinates VERY LITTLE (e.g., about 200 or 300 ml of urine only), then only very little of the Calcium excess would get out of the body, leaving the balance to stay inside the body.

When this pattern becomes a day-to-day practice, large quantities of Calcium would get added up inside the body on a daily basis, resulting in increasing the Calcium OVERLOAD too much.

Now, we have to know where all these Calcium excesses get stored within the body.

Our body is made of CELLS.

Inside the cell, there is a component called MITOCHONDRIA.

The function of the Mitochondria is to absorb CALCIUM (and other minerals) and store it in the cell*.

(* Mitochondria are also involved in controlling the concentration of calcium (Ca2+) ions within the cell. Visit: http://www. biology4kids.com/files/cell_mito.html)

If and when abundant calcium gets stored (often as calcium oxalate crystals) within EACH cell, each cell becomes ENLARGED in size, and becomes heavier in its WEIGHT.

When ALL the cells become inflated thus, the ENTIRE BODY turns BIG-SIZED and HEAVY – resulting in what we call OBESITY!

Thus, it is CALCIUM THAT MAKES THE BODY OBESE, and NOT fats or glycogen or any other form of sugar or calories that make a person that obese*.

(* That is why RICE that contains very little Calcium – about 4 mg or so per 180 gm, compared to cow’s milk that has 120 mg, cheese with about 800 mg, 300 gm pizza with 378 mg, 100 gm sardines in oil with its 400 mg, etc. does NOT make a person obese!

At this, one may want to question me as why should, or how would OVER-RIPE fruits make a person obese?

I have traced and reported the phenomenon in this BLOG in several of my articles. Let me repeat it here to make the evaluation more sensible:

*   *   *   *   *   *  

When we eat vegetable matter, some 70 or 80% of the Calcium does NOT get absorbed by the intestine: that gets thrown out of the body along with the faecal matter. (Visit: https://nortonsafe.search.ask.com/web?q= bioavailability%20of%20calcium%20from %20vegetables&o=APN11910&geo=en_ US&prt=&ctype=&ver=&chn=&tpr=121 )

Why does this happen?

It is because, when the body has already absorbed its 500 mg of Calcium, the brain disallows further absorption of the same mineral.

Therefore, all the unwanted calcium present in the vegetable matter gets thrown out in an unutilised form.

If a person eats over-ripe fruit, or consumes EXCESSIVE FIBRES, then the faeces that is supposed to be in a solid and shapely state, turns SLIMY – often misquoted as “diarrhoea” by physicians.

The water that oozes from the glandular cells that make the lining of the colo-rectal region turns the solid faeces into a slimy state.

This enhances the solubility of the faeces-borne Calcium, which gets absorbed by the colon, gets transferred into the LYMPH fluid, and enters into the SOFT cells of various parts of the body. This will then make the person over-weight and obese.

In fact, eating biscuits, chocolates, and any over-ripe fruit, especially papaya, tends to contribute to Calcium excesses and related overweight.

Thus, it could have become clear by now that it is NOT fats and oils or over-consumption of CALORIES that makes a person overweight or obese, but it is mere CALCUM EXCESS that does so much of harm to humans by making them obese.

I have studied that nearly ALL the obesity-related MAJOR NON-COMMUNICABLE DISEASES, such as Type-2 Diabetes, Heart Blockages (Athero- Arteriosclerosis), Kidney stone, Hypothyroidism, Prostate enlargement, Breast lumps, Endometriosis, Polycystic Ovary, Fallopian blockages, Cancers, and even white discharges in women, etc. are the result of ACCUMULATION OF FAR TOO MUCH OF CALCIUM EXCESSES WITHIN THE BODY.

Such EXCESSIVE ACCUMULATIONS result essentially due to UNDER-URINATION, enhanced by over-consumption of very high fibre diet, Calcium-enriched eatables and Calcium supplements.

Exercises can burn off the calories, but cannot remove the calcium excesses. It is because of this the exercises do NOT have the ability to reverse the obesity build up in people.

Well friends,

I hope I have done some amount of justice to the most disturbing problem people have been facing worldwide.

I will be happy if the WHO recognises my findings soon, so that people worldwide can begin to live healthily at least form now on.

With best wishes and thanks for reading this.
