What the medical fraternity believes hitherto as the crucial risk factor for osteoporosis appears to be ERRONEOUS.

What does it believe?

The following is the strong recommendation that is being put up to the common public for managing the skeletal system in perfect health:

Bones are made of calcium. You must make sure to increase its density by supplying more Calcium, so that osteoporosis will not occur.

Calcium will not get into the bones, unless there is Vitamin-D.

So, take PLENTY OF CALCIUM + Vitamin-D to get that Calcium fixed into the bones.

Women, especially after menopause, should take MORE Calcium, so that they do not suffer Osteoporosis.

(In the absence of Vitamin-D, the ‘free’ Calcium will NOT get into the bones.)

How much Calcium one should take?

It does not matter. You should simply take Calcium from ALL possible sources.

Eat plenty of seafood (e.g., fish, fish oil), since all of them contain plenty of Calcium.

You can even take Calcium-enriched eatables, such as biscuits, oats, cornflakes, bread, calcium-enriched soft drinks, etc.

For that matter, you can even take Calcium supplements, in the form of 500 mg. tablets, even twice daily.

All of the above would take care of your skeletal system!

While suggesting the above, the health Advocates seem to forget one important point:

How much is the body’s daily requirement?

What happens if we end up consuming MORE than the needed quantity?

Oh! That WE need not worry about! The body will take care of it. It would utilise what it wants, and it would throw out what it does not want.

So, without any fear whatsoever, you should take MORE Calcium!

Well, the above has been the thinking of ALL the people concerned with health-care.

In spite of all the above recommendations, people still suffer from bone problems. Why is that?


We know well that the following are the daily requirements of Calcium:

Children’s skeletal system grows rapidly. Therefore, they require about 900 mg of Calcium daily – if they happen to be Asians.

The European children tend to need slightly more – probably about 1000 mg daily!

As for adults, the menopausal women and men appear to need about only half of the children’s need. This is so because their bone growth has already ceased. That is said to be about 450 mg for Asians, and about 500 mg for Europeans.

Since a substantial quantity of Calcium gets lost in the menstrual fluids, the fertile women tend to require about 500 mg. daily.


In spite of all the above, why should people still suffer from osteoporosis?

The following scientific explanation would clarify the doubt:

In the first place, several scientists* have already established that REDUCED CALCIUM (even 300 mg/day) INTAKE DOES NOT GIVE RISE TO OSTEOPOROSIS. People consuming much lesser quantities of Calcium live in good health.

(* Nicholls and Nimalasuriya:1939; Walker and Arvidsson, 1954; Mur thy et al, 1955; Hegsted et all, 1952, and Malm, 1958 have already established that reduced Calcium consumption does not do any harm to people.)

The above appears to be the truth. Then, why should people taking MORE and ABUNDANT Calcium still suffer the diseases Osteoporosis?

Let me let you know the truth:


Please imagine the following:

Let us say that you can hold exactly 15 kg of weight in your hands.

There are several bricks around us, each weighing 1kg.

I start placing the bricks one after another over your extended palms.

I have already placed 15 bricks, making up to 15 kg.

You are holding them with great difficulty, for that is already your maximum carrying capacity.

Now, I keep just one more brick, making it to be 16kg. That is beyond your tolerance capacity.

At this, what would you do?

Would you just drop off the one extra brick, or would you drop off the whole lot of 16 bricks?

Doubtlessly, all the 16 bricks, weighing 16 kg would get dropped off!

This is precisely what happens in our body, when MORE Calcium is put in to the body.

When the quantity becomes A LOT MORE than the body’s maximum tolerance capacity, it sheds off ALL the Calcium, and not just the little extra that is beyond the tolerance limit.

Let us assume the following:

Body’s daily requirement is 500 mg per day.

Let us assume that our body can tolerate a maximum of, say, 5000 mg.

The above being the case, if we consume 5100 mg., then, our body, directed by our brain, sheds off, not just the extra 100 gms., but the WHOLE LOT OF 5,100 mg., and this results in OSTEOPOROSIS.

How does it happen?

Only ACIDS can dissolve the bone – the alkaline Calcium.

So, the brain secretes LACTIC ACID, maybe a few more acids*!

(* If a person consumes high protein diet, such as Soya bean, then, in the process of its digestion, SULPHUR gets released. This Sulphur can become Sulphuric Acid, and that can dissolve the bone calcium, and allow that freed Calcium to get thrown out of the body through urination.)

These acids dissolve the bone and free the Calcium. This process alone gives rise to Osteoporosis.

Of course, the freed Calcium excess gets out of our body through the urinations.

The process of ‘bone calcium dissolving’, and getting out of the body, called calcium depletion, or “leaching out”, goes on and on, thus removing significant quantities of Calcium, RESULTING IN THE BONES BECOMING VERY WEAK!

When the bone becomes extremely weak, beyond the tolerance capacity, then, the bone breaks, resulting in a more serious problem, and this, at its worst, can result in the death of the person.

In reality, when there is insufficient Calcium in the body, the brain makes the body scavenge all available Calcium from all available sources, and tries to gather more and more.

This process results only in increasing the bone density.

Whereas, when too much of Calcium enters into the body, continuous LOSS of Calcium weakens the bone, and that gives rise to what we call Osteoporosis.

This can be called an "Auto-Immune Disease".

A few years ago, there lived an old lady in Sentul area, Kuala Lumpur, aged about 65, and looking a bit weak.

Assuming that she requires Calcium, her Doctor prescribed 500mg Calcium tablets, to be taken twice daily, amounting to 1000mg/day.

The woman did not put on weight.

The Doctor then increased the dosage to 2000mg daily, and also recommended her to take 3 glasses of thick milk, prepared from a popular brand of powdered milk that was enriched with Calcium, making it Calcium-rich, to about 5000mg or so.

The woman was told to eat high protein diet, along with more of the Calcium-rich snacks, eatables and drinks.

During one of my visits, finding that woman to be crying of non-stop and intense pain, I calculated to trace the total quantity of Calcium this woman was consuming.

It amounted to a shocking 18,000 mg, daily!

A year later, the woman died of non-stop and intense bone pain – the Osteoporosis!

The above observation, although a single case-history, would vouch the reality of things!

I have observed time and again, when menopausal women are prescribed with extra Calcium, they tend to put on more weight.

If they continue consuming such high doses of Calcium on a daily basis, they seem to be developing HUGE BREAST LUMPS with great potentials for turning into cancers.

(When a woman of 62 came to me with similar problem, all I did was, I DECALCIFIED her body, through various means I have described in several of my books.

THAT woman and her learned daughter were very much and pleasantly surprised to find the total disappearance of two HUGE breast lumps she had earlier, which were essentially due to her taking 500mg x 2 tablets of Calcium supplementations - all these happened within about 45 days!)

The fact remains thus:

All menstruating women lose substantial quantities of Calcium in their menstrual discharges at monthly intervals.

That is why, fertile women do NOT seem to get heart attacks.

That is again why the menopausal women suffer massive heart attacks.

This should mean that if the menopausal women are prescribed extra Calcium supplementations, the chances of they getting fatal heart attacks should be much greater, compared to those who actually lessen their regular Calcium consumption.

This is so because, the regular loss of Calcium (in the menstrual fluids) does not occur any more, and thereby that tends to accumulate to greater quantities within the body, making them to become overweight and ‘better built’ (with increased breast size and firmness) along with time.

The remedy for the above problem rests in the avoidance of consuming Calcium-enriched eatables and drinks, Calcium supplements, drinking slightly more water than that they were taking at pre-menopausal stage, and urinating nearly all of the water consumed.

More information on this can be read in my book “Menses, Menopause, and Osteoporosis”.

I think, it helps to remember that “If something is good, too much of it will NOT be excellent”.

Although Calcium is extremely essential for the human body, when in excess, it can ruin our body!

Well, friends,

I hope the above information is useful to you.
