PREVENTING COLD SORES WITH CALCIUM - Part 3

If you have multiple oral herpes outbreaks - cold sores and fever blisters - each year, I would bet my paycheck that you are needing more calcium and other minerals.

Calcium is the primary mineral our body uses to alkalize our body fluids and cells.

Cold sores and fever blisters love an acid, low oxygen environment.

Calcium fights cold sores and fever blisters.

You need calcium as part of your daily regimen if you want to be cold sore free.

Calcium is the most common element in our bodies, and the third most common earth element.

Besides bone and tooth formation, and balancing pH, calcium is essential for optimum muscle contraction (like your legs - and heart muscle), blood clotting, and healthy cell membranes.

If you get leg cramps at night, for example, you can quite likely eliminate the problem by increasing your calcium intake. In fact, the next time you wake up with a leg cramp, drink a glass of milk.

Quite often the cramp will go away in minutes and allow you to sleep undisturbed the rest of the night.

Calcium will not work that fast as a cold sore treatment but it is awesome.

If you get a lot of cold sores and fever blisters, also try increasing your calcium intake. In addition, keep in mind that Vitamin D and magnesium are two essential nutrients that help our bodies absorb calcium.

Fact is - many people who appear to be short of calcium are actually short of vitamin D and/or magnesium. The primary source of vitamin D is the sun hitting our skin.

Sunshine is very healthy. Don't hide from it. It protects you from skin cancer. People in the south get less skin cancer than people in the north - primarily because of the vitamin D that is created when the sun hits our skin.

The best calcium for our bodies, to prevent cold sores and fever blisters, is from natural sources such as seaweed, dairy products, broccoli, kale, almonds, molasses, and beans. Canned salmon is excellent also, if the bones and skin are in the can too.

Fighting cold sores and fever blisters means making your body unfriendly to the oral herpes virus. Calcium is one nutrient that will do just that.

Yes, natural sources of calcium, as they occur in nature, provide the best calcium for your body. But, today, a normal diet may not provide the quantity of calcium and other nutrients you need to eliminate cold sores and fever blisters.

Talk to you later

God Bless
