Some people eat as though they were going to do the hardest kind of physical labor! A sedentary person – by habit and conditioning – will get up in the morning and eat a heavy breakfast of cooked or dry cereal, hot cakes with bacon, eggs, buttered toast and a stimulating beverage like China tea, coffee or mucus-forming milk. Wild animals never drink milk after they are weaned. Only domesticated animals will, but vets advise you not to give milk to your pets. We do not approve of milk drinking by adults – neither raw nor pasteurized. It is amazing how you will have less mucus, runny noses, postnasal drip, etc., once you cut milk and its products from your diet. Your daily journal provides proof of changes happening to your human machine!

These same people then go to work in an office, store, etc., and sit or stand around all day. They will usually have mid-morning snacks and then at noon they will eat a heavy meal: bread, meat, a dessert and a beverage like a sugared soft drink or coffee. In the mid-afternoon they again have snacks and more sugared drinks. Then at home they have their biggest meal of the day; consisting of meat, potatoes, bread, dessert and a beverage. Typically they end their day watching TV – while eating another snack! This kind of daily habitual over-eating is making millions of sick, fat, exhausted people. This habit is sending them to doctors, clinics, hospitals and too many to an early grave! Sad Facts: millions are sick and grossly overweight and it’s all due to unhealthy lifestyle habits.

The person living the average, inactive life can’t possibly burn up these large amounts of food! So what happens to people who eat this way? You know as well as we do that they are sick or half-sick for most of their entire lives. They fill the doctors’ offices, pharmacies and hospitals with all their health problems brought on by their unhealthy lifestyles. Millions more end up in old people’s homes, convalescent and mental facilities.

We are generally more deficient in calcium than in any of the 30 other minerals the body needs to maintain health and sufficient Nerve Force. Calcium levels in the correct proportion give us sound teeth, strong bones, nerves of steel, good muscle and skin tone, a regular heart beat, an erect posture, a sharp mind and healthy vital organs. If your blood calcium level drops too much you may become nervous, cross, moody, depressed, grouchy and irritated. Calcium helps control your health and moods as it shapes your entire personality.

Calcium is all-important for proper functioning of the nerves. This mineral helps to transport impulses through the nerves from one part of the body to the other. Without calcium, you would not be able to pull your hand away from a hot stove, get out of the way of an oncoming car or even taste the food you eat! Calcium deficiency may cause cramps or convulsions, heart palpitations or a slow pulse. Calcium also helps maintain the body’s delicate acid-alkaline balance, Bragg Vinegar helps also.

Calcium deficiencies can be readily recognized by stunted growth, decayed teeth and brittle or porous bones which show up in x-rays. It is more difficult, however, to recognize calcium deficiencies that produce changes in the soft tissues. Yet these are the warning signs which we must learn to detect in order to prevent unnecessary misery and physical handicaps.

Only 1% of the body’s calcium is used by the soft tissues. But if this essential 1% is lacking it flashes a danger signal of calcium deficiency. The most noticeable sign is extreme nervousness. Without the proper amount of calcium in the blood, the nerves cannot send messages. Tension and strain result. It is impossible for the body to relax. This is apparent in children who are highly emotional. It shows first in a mean and unpleasant disposition, fretful crying and temper tantrums which later developing into muscular twitching, spasms and even convulsions.
