Today we are talking about Calcium Fluoratum, which is tissue salt #1. Calcium fluoratum is one that many people are not aware that it even exists within the body, unlike it’s famous cousin, Calcium Phosphate. 

If you haven’t listened to episode 7 yet, we highly recommend listening to it first to gain an understanding of what mineral therapy is and how it works, before listening to today’s episode.

Calcium Fluoratum is responsible for the elasticity of the tissues within our bodies. This is important for many functions, including ligaments, tendons and our skin. 

When Calcium Fluoratum decreases there is a hardening of structures and skin that occurs.

For example, have you suffered from corns on your toes? This is due to decreased Calcium Fluoratum. You can also experience little ‘hardenings on the eyes’ as well as tendons and ligaments that snap easily. 

On the flip side of things hardening, you will also find that things can get ‘saggy’ or ‘overstretched.’ When we think about ‘saggy,’ most of us think about sagging skin as we age which, while we may want to look youthful, isn’t a major issue. However, stretched skin and tissue is an issue when it affects other areas of our bodies. For example, with a prolapse of the bowel, where the bowel protrudes from the anus because the supporting network of tissue is no longer ‘tight’ enough. Prolapses can also occur with other organs like the uterus or the bladder. As you can imagine this can be very painful and requires immediate medical attention.


How do we correct a Calcium Fluoratum deficiency?

As with everything in life, if you have a slight deficiency of Calcium Fluoratum, you will be able to correct it quickly. However if the problem has been chronic (long term) it will take a while for it to correct. 

Also, keep in mind that with certain conditions, once the problem is there, it is not as simple as just correcting the initial problem/deficiency. This is because once something is out of balance in the body, it has a cascading effect on the rest of the body. Unfortunately, in some cases a full correction is not possible.

Hernias are another presentation of low Calcium Fluoratum levels due to weakening of the muscles and thus the internal organs protrude from the resulting opening. 

This mineral has a peculiarity in that it does not like to be mixed with any other mineral, including other forms of calcium.  Calcium Fluoratum also takes the longest of all the 12 minerals to be absorbed and to get to an optimal level and you also only take a maximum of a couple tablets a day (1 to 2). This is important to note, because people often think that such a small amount won’t work. 


How do you know if you have a Calcium Fluoratum deficiency?

As a tip, if you find that you poke out your tongue and there is a thick straight ridge running through the middle of the tongue, this is a sign of Calcium Fluoratum deficiency. 

And as mentioned earlier, you will have a tendency for prolapses, hernias, hardening of skin, sagging skin and injuries (sprains etc).


Why would I be deficient in Calcium Fluoratum?

Most people end up with a deficiency due to body acidity. This occurs when the body pH has dropped too much. Because it is dangerous for your pH to drop, when this occurs (usually due to poor diet choices) and your body becomes acidic, your body will use minerals to neutralise the acidity. 

Calcium is the most abundant mineral in your body and so it is the most leached from your body (teeth, bones, tissues, organs, cells, teeth). The calcium is drawn from these structures into the bloodstream to correct the pH, leaving the structures deficient and thus unable to perform their functions properly (E.g. bones get weak and break easily, teeth crack and decay, muscles do not contract and relax properly etc).

If this isn’t bad enough, what usually tends to happen is that after the pH has been corrected there is an excess of calcium left in the blood and this can cause bone spurs and arterial plaque (if there is also cholesterol present). Arterial plaque obviously brings its own set of problems to the body. 

To learn more about low pH, go back to episode 1, where we covered it as part of our “Let’s talk Diets” episode.


One last tip!

If your skin is getting wrinkly too quickly, you know it is calcium fluoratum if it is very fine lines like that of chicken legs or feet! 

If this is occurring, you really need to think about the state of your bones. Our skin and bones are closely tied and have a very similar content of minerals. We will be talking more about this next week when we delve into tissue salt #2, Calcium Phosphate.
