Nature has nicely packaged the nutrients we need to maintain homeostasis in plants. The vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, proteins, carbohydrates, and fats interact in a way through produces a chemical affinity with the body.

This chemical affinity controls the bioavailability of nutrients so the nutrients are supplied to the body in concentrations that support health and not undermine it.

The nature or God regulation is inherent within the ecosystem, but big business doesn’t find profit within this system. Big business creates processes which are developed outside of nature’s balance, and the processes undermine and corrupt the natural balance in the ecosystem and within the body.

Recommendation Against Calcium Supplementation

Government health organizations at one time recommended calcium supplementation to protect bones,[1] but now they recommend against calcium supplementation.[2] Calcium supplementation has been linked to increased heart attacks.[3][4][5][6]

Calcium supplements increase heart risk, but not calcium you consume from eating plants. When you take calcium supplements you get a sustained spike of calcium in the bloodstream[7] you don’t get from consuming calcium-rich plants.

The spike creates a hypercoaguable state where the blood clots more easily, or too easily, which can increase the risk of clots in the heart and brain.

It is best to eat a calcium-rich diet and eating a whole food plant-based diet is an excellent option. You can find the best plant foods to eat to support homeostasis in this nutritional guide based on the Dr Sebi food list.
