Questions about Calcium, Magnesium and Dairy
I received this query from a health professional who has completed a Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA) for herself:
".. with regard to calcium and magnesium. When I have low calcium compared to magnesium why am I taking more magnesium than calcium?
Also, my HTMA report says to eat 33% dairy which as I mentioned I don't (and haven't for years) as it gives me acne. Also, I brought The Calcium Lie from you. Also, I teach people that eating dairy is not the solution to getting more calcium. Have attached 2 slides.
So a bit confused!"

The first thing to take note of is her Metabolic Typing is "Fast 4" which is associated with being in a chronic state of stress and exhaustion that may have become ingrained over many years or a recent period of extreme and unrelenting stress.
