"Naturopathic medicine supports the body's innate ability to heal itself"
People often assume that the more calcium you get in your diet, the less likely you are of developing osteoporosis. However, it is quite the opposite - too much calcium increases your chances of developing osteoporosis. Calcium is just one player in the grande scheme of building bones. That's like saying Vitamin C is the only contributor of boosting the immune system.
There are many components to building bones, including boron, strontium, vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin K, and magnesium. Our bodies are constantly trying to obtain balance, and when one nutrient floods the system, balance is offset, and problems ensue.
Here is an excellent article depicting the many benefits of Magnesium, including bone health, anxiety, depression, PMS, migraines, and more. Magnesium plays an impressive role in the human body and a deficiency (even if just from a comparatively over consumption of Calcium) will have many negative consequences in the body.
