(Source drlwilson.com; healthscope newsletter)...Dr Hans Selye state that the ageing process is intimately associated with the deposition of calcium in the various body tiissues...due in part to a loss of protective vitamins and mienrals and an imbalance in the normal metabolic rate. Normally calcium is kept outside the cell. Calcium may be thought of as cement...because it has a solidifying effect on the tissues of the body.
A large majority of our hair analysis results show high tissue calcium levels. When an individuals metabolism slows down, calcium levels increase in the soft tissues. Calcium is essential for life but if it builds up in the soft tissues it accumulates around and within the cells so that normal nutritional exchange becomes reduced. This also reduces the ability of the cells to retain moisture. A magnesium deficiency relative to calcium may also be responsible for the soft tissue deposition of calcium.
Calcium acts as a dehydrator which increases the rigidity of the skin...hair is also affected by lowered metabolism and calcium build up - less growth and dry brittle hair.
