(NaturalNews) Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body and it's concentrated in our teeth and bones. However, calcium is an alkaline mineral and when the body's blood and tissues wander into the acidic range, the body starts to leach calcium from the bones. It does this to add an alkaline mineral to the blood and to keep the blood from becoming overly acidic, as acidic blood causes immediate problems. Since most diets are predominately acidic, the leaching of calcium from the bones is commonplace. However, this creates weak bones and a common condition called osteoporosis which generally appears in individuals at about 50 years of age. But, Mikhail Tombak Ph.D. tells us that osteoporosis can be effectively treated and prevented by supplementing calcium from an unlikely source. Specifically, Tombak recommends eating eggshells.
Eggshells contain 27 essential microelements, and they're composed largely of calcium. Tombak tells us that this calcium is 90 percent absorbable by our bones - and the composition of eggshells is remarkably similar to our bones and teeth.
Milk and dairy have long been promoted as high calcium foods, but the calcium in them isn't bio-available which means our bodies can't access it easily. Besides, because pasteurized milk and dairy are acidic, they contribute to the overall acidic condition of the body - which causes the blood to rob more calcium from the bones.
So, if you're feeling the effects of weak bones or would like to prevent them in the first place, why not try eating some eggshells? They're an easy, inexpensive source of bio-available calcium.
To re-supplement calcium using eggshells, simply immerse the empty shells in boiling water for about 5 minutes to kill any pathogens and then let the shells air dry. After they're dry, grind the shells in a coffee grinder and take a 1/2 teaspoon a day, which can be taken with fresh squeezed orange juice or lemonade. For prevention, the shells are consumed every day for two months each year.
Of course, only organic eggs should be used. You certainly don't need traces of antibiotics and other chemicals used in conventional methods of raising chickens, as these chemicals are bound to be in the shells. Eggshells from organic chickens have also been found to be harder and are likely more mineral-rich.
Nuts, cabbage, kale, sea vegetables, carrots, and beets are other rich sources of calcium that are accessible to the body. Calcium is more easily absorbed with adequate vitamin D, so be sure to enjoy some sunshine as well.

Kim Evans is a natural health writer and author of Cleaning Up! The Ultimate Body Cleanse. Cleaning Up! offers deep cleansing and using methods in this book, people have gotten rid of dozens of different types of health problems, as well as just losing excess weight, thinking more clearly, and feeling better.
Kim's next book chronicles events in her life that happen to match patterns in the Bible. She's also found three places in the Bible that tell us its about these patterns and even asking you to match them. Here's a little from the upcoming book... In Isaiah 22:20, it says, "And it must occur in that day that I will call my servant, namely Eliakim." But, because these prophecies are cryptic and they aren't meant to be understood until they are understood, it's only the last three letters. A few lines later, it says, "From the land of Kittim it has been revealed to them." Here, you just take out any three middle letters, and again, it's the name of the person bringing you this message, or the sacred secret of the prophecy. Actually, if you take those two passages, Kim is about the only name you can get from both of them. In Numbers 1:1 – 1:18, it's talking about "the family" and mentions Pagiel. It also twice mentions February 1st, (Kim's birthday) and then says that the youngest is 20 years old. Kim's little sister Paige is currently 20 years old. In Chronicles 1 11:20 it mentions the brother of Joab and then in the same sentence uses the word brandishing. Kim's middle name is Jo and her older sister's name is Brandi. There are other patterns to her sisters too but these sort of mention them by name. Of course, it helps if you know that there is a magical spiritual reality available that comes deep cleansing and often major dietary upgrades. It's also why Jesus was teaching the same thing, if you find his teachings in the Essene Gospel of Peace. In this text, he even says things like, "You'll never see the father unless you clean your colon." But, this is paraphrased... In the Bible Jesus says things more like, happy are those who wash their robes, as they can enter the tree of life. The tree of life is elsewhere explained as God's paradise. He also said, first clean the inside of the cup and then the outside will also be clean. Kim's book Cleaning Up! is here http://www.cleaningupcleanse.com.
