What color is your calcium?

Everyone knows calcium is white, right?  The kind of calcium that your body can use is actually green.  If you have been eating white calcium your whole life you may now have calcifications in your body.  Inorganic calcium will deposit into your joints, form kidney stones and gall stones  because your body can’t use that kind of calcium.  Pretty sad to think that you have been eating something that you thought was good for you and is actually harming you. Then to top it all off Dr. Christopher taught us that sugars, pastries, soft and alcoholic beverages, white breads, candies, etc., leach the calcium out of the body, causing varicose veins, cramps, Charlie horses, loss of teeth, nervous upsets, etc.  That is really upsetting if you are having any of these problems.

    Now for the good news, switching to the right kind of calcium can reverse these problems.  Where do you find the right kind of calcium?  The type that can be assimilated is from herbs, fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts and seeds. In other words, from real food, not the food that is fortified in the process of manufacturing, but eating it in the form it was originally grown.

    Dr. Christopher formulated a wonderful calcium blend called Herbal Calcium.  Dr. Christopher recommend herbal calcium for teething babies, pregnant women, people with varicose veins, people with nerve issues, migraines, broken bones, insomnia and more.  You can read more about it on the Herbal Legacy website.

    Here at Herbs First we carry the full line of Dr. Christopher products.  Herbal Calcium comes in capsules, extract, as Kid-e-Calc for children, and in bulk as Calc Tea.  For people that want to save even more and get a larger amount we have the kit where you buy one of each of the individual herbs and mix them together to get the correct formulation. You will end up with 3.5 lbs of Herbal Calcium for $65.00 by mixing it yourself.  This amount will last my husband and I about six months and we blend it in with our Jurassic Green and drink it down.  Note that you want to be able to use bulk herbs within a year of opening them. 

  Dr. Christopher has been teaching these principles since the 1940’s.  His booklet The Three Day Cleanse and Mucusless Diet is free with a $50.00 herb order.  Put in the coupon code 99104 at checkout. 


  1. Hi Kathryn;
    I really enjoy reading your blog and am finding lots of good info in previous posts. I just want to make sure that Dr. Christopher's herbal calcium is safe during pregnancy? I know he recommended it but it says on the bottle to not take during pregnancy or nursing.

    Please advise.



    1. The company now puts that on all the products to protect themselves. People need to be wise in their usage. Herbal Calcium is what I would take during pregnancy. Food based vitamins are more absorbable by the body. Pregnant women need to get enough calcium to protect their bones, teeth, etc. because the body will rob itself of the nutrients to build the baby. That is why so many women end up with osteoporosis, poor teeth, etc.
