About this course

Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body and is essential for bone, teeth, muscle and other tissues but also contributes to sudden cardiac death. This role of calcium in normal function and also in pathology creates a clinical paradox for us. Calcium is necessary and yet seems to be central to the process of the chronic diseases of ageing.

In the right place, calcium is vital. “Calcification” refers to the accumulation of calcium in parts of the body where it should not accumulate - blood vessels, breast, etc., which causes hardening of these tissues. In fact, cardiovascular disease may be more about calcium than cholesterol.

The reasons calcium accumulates in specific tissues is related to several factors that Donnie Yance explains in detail. These include kidney function and pH, thyroid status, ageing, inflammation. Donnie also details the nutrients that are required to manage calcium level and utilisation. There are also quite a number of botanicals and foods that are useful in calcium regulation and in the systems involved in calcium control.

This is a fascinating presentation the gives clear guidance on how to build healthy bones, good nervous function, etc. and yet avoid the calcification issues that are central to many disease processes.
