CEDSA can detect if there are circulation issues in the body. One of the culprits of artery plaquing is calcium and it is related to emotional stress. When we are running in sympathetic dominance (the fight-or-flight response reaction of our autonomic nervous system), the body requires additional minerals resulting in mineral deficiency. Eventually, the body turns to our mineral stores, the skeleton, and withdraws the stored calcium and phosphorus. About 90% of the body’s calcium is found in the bones in the form of calcium phosphate salts (AKA hydroxyapatites), which provide strength and rigidity to the skeleton. Calcium is important for normal blood clotting, acid-alkaline balance, nerve conduction, cell membrane permeability and secretory behavior. Calcium also helps the control of endocrine secretions, such as the pancreas, and is necessary to open the secretory ability of these glands, causing them to release their hormones.
In sympathetic dominant individuals, the body excretes calcium in the urine.(1) This causes the muscles and nervous system to go into a state of alertness to respond to stress. Those who live in a fight-or-flight pattern much of the time (people who have high emotionally stressed lives) are continuously losing calcium in their urine and overuse their sympathetic nervous system. If an individual is both sympathetic dominate and nutritionally imbalanced, they may not be able to recover from the exhaustion stage, “burn-out”, resulting in chronic degenerative disease, increased susceptibility to viral infections, and suppressed thyroid and adrenal glands.(1) Conditions associated with sympathetic dominance:
In the exhaustion stage of stress, “burn-out”, phosphorus is reduced and calcium is increased. This results in calcium being lost into the tissues.(2,3) Low tissue sodium and potassium levels prevent calcium from remaining in an ionized or soluble form in the blood. The calcium then precipitates and deposits in many body tissues including the joints, arteries, kidneys and elsewhere.(2,3)
There are a few things we must do to reverse this. First, we will recommend remedies to help balance the emotions. We then need to address acidosis (which promotes calcification), and replenish the body’s mineral stores. Finally, we need to decalcify the soft tissues and get the calcium back into the bones.
