Calcium and Magnesium









Definition.  Stress support is a method used only occasionally during development programs to help balance body chemistry.  It involves giving extra amounts of one or more vital minerals.

Which minerals are involved in stress support?  The minerals involved in stress support are calcium, magnesium, zinc, chromium, selenium and iodine or kelp.

Placeholders or master keys.  The main reason for giving stress support minerals is because the body requires them as placeholders or master keys.

The placeholder concept is one of the most basic ideas in development science.  When the body is deficient in vital mineral compounds, it will substitute other mineral compounds in enzyme binding sites as a way to keep the body alive.

Placeholders or master keys (like a master key at a hotel that opens all the doors) are not the correct form of the vital mineral or even the correct mineral.  However, they will activate the enzyme or tissue to a certain degree.

They will also remain in place until the person can obtain the correct mineral compound that is found in food.

The good placeholders are the ones mentioned above.  However, the concept is so important that the body will use inferior quality placeholders if it does not have the good ones.  These include copper, cadmium, mercury, arsenic, lead, strontium, barium, zirconium, aluminum, bromine and fluoride.

Two problems with placeholders are:

- They donÕt work as well as the correct mineral compound that belongs in the enzyme.

- It is difficult to dislodge them. 

A rogue secret.  First, deplete vital mineral compounds in the bodies of people, creatures and plants.  This is done by stealing the minerals from the planets, and by beating and raping the bodies.

Then they put bad quality placeholders into the food, water, and the skin during beatings and rapes.  To stay alive, the souls in the bodies accept these poor quality placeholders.  This causes serious health problems that are difficult to heal.

A development program can heal them by removing the need for the placeholder.  It is often the only method to get rid of them.  For example, chelation therapy will not remove them very much.  For details, read Placeholders Or Master Keys and Chelation.

Preferred minerals.  The placeholder concept is related to the theory of preferred minerals.  This is the idea that many enzymes and tissues of the body will operate with more than one mineral or mineral compound.  However, only one is the preferred mineral or compound for a particular enzyme.  The rest are less preferred and donÕt work as well.  For details, read Preferred Minerals.

Care is required.  Giving extra minerals is a common method among nutritionists.  However, it is not part of most development programs and we strongly discourage its use except in special cases.  The reason is discussed below.

Complications.  Extra stress support can easily wreck a development program.  The main complication is that all of them make the body more yin.  This may not sound bad, but it is a serious problem with adding nutritional supplements of any kind.  If the body becomes too yin, development slows or stops and health will decline.  For details, read Yin And Yang and Yin Disease.

Useful for all ages.  Stress support can be helpful for people of all ages, from small babies to older people.




We have used extra zinc in some cases of diabetes for many years.  As of April 2019, we are starting to give extra zinc to a few peopleÕs programs for reasons other than to help correct diabetes.




In giving more zinc, one must consider at least two complications:

1.  Giving more zinc will lower the sodium level, and this is not always desired.  Therefore, when giving extra zinc it is necessary to add something to balance the sodium/potassium ratio.

Diabetes.  With cases of diabetes, we often give extra chromium along with extra zinc.  This will help keep the sodium/potassium ratio balanced.  However, when diabetes is not present this combination appears not to be best.

Limcomin.  Instead, we find it better to give Limcomin along with zinc.  This product is a formula that contains a little manganese, copper, vitamin C, vitamin A, zinc and vitamin B6.  At one time, it also contained a little lymph, thymus and spleen glandular tissue.

Other possibilities to balance extra zinc we have considered are to give extra manganese, copper, vitamin C, adrenal glandular or extra B vitamins.

This complication of extra zinc does not occur as much when one gives extra amounts of the other minerals listed in the section above this one.  The main exception is chromium, which will raise the sodium/potassium ratio.

2. Giving more of any isolated nutrient supplement or certain foods will make the body more yin.  This will slow or stop development.  This complication arises when giving extra amounts of any mineral or isolated nutrient.  It is one reason we are very careful about giving extra nutritional supplements of any kind!

This problem is much more difficult to solve.  Please do not just add extra zinc and Limcomin to all programs.

The solutions to this problem are:

- Take extra zinc on a temporary basis only.

- Stop taking extra zinc and Limcomin at once if it is not helpful.  This may be difficult to assess, and we are working on ways to assess its need and benefits. 

- Use a food source of zinc, such as meat or pumpkin seeds, instead of a mineral tablet.  The problem here is that one can only eat a certain amount of any food without unbalancing the diet.  Also, the amount of zinc may need to be exact and this is more difficult to do with food.

Whole-food zinc supplements.  We do not recommend using a whole-food zinc tablet.  So far, these are no better than a standard chelated zinc, and they are often worse because they can be made of a raw sprout or plant or worse, a fungus, that is grown on zinc-rich soil.  This is even more yin than a chelated or other zinc tablet.  It is one reason we do not use many whole-food supplements.

3. Taking zinc can cause nausea.  One answer for this is to use zinc lozenges instead of swallowing extra zinc.  One might use topical zinc, but do not use standard zinc oxide ointment because the base it is in is too toxic.

4. Added cost and inconvenience of having to take more tablets.  This is a factor in some cases.




Babies and children are growing and zinc is critical for growth and development.  A few babies and children have benefited from extra zinc.  Failure to give extra zinc may also explain why, for example, a few DownÕs syndrome babies have not healed as quickly as we believe they should. 

So far, everything in this article applies equally to babies and children as it does to adults. 




We are still researching the criteria and we appreciate your feedback.  So far, the indicators are:

- Lifestyle conditions.  The main lifestyle condition is a high level of stress due to any cause.  Another possibility is severe malnutrition or other reasons for very poor digestion.

With babies and children, the extra stress can just be being born onto a dysfunctional and stressful planet or having to live with parents who do not feed one correctly.  While we are still researching, we believe that many babies will benefit from a little extra zinc.

- Hair analysis indicators: A zinc level less than about 12 mg%.  The lower the hair zinc level, the more likely stress support will be helpful and the more that is probably needed.

Perhaps an elevated calcium/magnesium ratio, a very low sodium/potassium ratio, elevated copper or a calcium shell might be indicators but it is too early for us to say.

- Symptoms: This has not been researched yet.  Possibly symptoms that may require extra zinc may include eye problems, skin problems and perhaps other connective tissue conditions such as tendon, ligament, artery, and vein conditions.  Examples are tendonitis, bursitis, varicose veins and aneurysms.

Other symptoms we are researching are some cases of anxiety, irritability, mood swings, insomnia, attention deficit or ADD, emotional instability and other nervous system conditions.

Other symptoms may include digestive difficulties such as gas, bloating, gastritis or stomach pain.




So far, most people need one or two extra zinc tablets.  Each tablet is 22.5 mg of chelated zinc.  Along with this, one needs to give about the same number of tablets of Limcomin.




We are experimenting with giving extra zinc at one meal and extra Limcomin at another meal so as to obtain a more powerful effect.  However, so far, this is not effective and causes the sodium/potassium ratio to fluctuate excessively during the day.




We are excited about giving extra zinc and limcomin for stuations other than diabetes.  We think it will help some people who have a high level of stress and perhaps those with certain health conditions.

We appreciate and thank you for feedback about this method if you learn something new about its use.




            Calcium and magnesium.  This may be given if the calcium and/or magnesium levels are elevated, especially if a calcium shell is present.  The reason is that calcium and magnesium are biounavailable in these situations.

            Extra calcium and magnesium may also help with anxiety, irritability, nervousness, muscle cramps, tachycardia, insomnia and constipation.

            The amount is one to three extra tablets daily of Paramin.  Each tablet contains about 200 mg of calcium and 100 mg of elemental magnesium.


            Chromium.  We give extra chromium in most cases of diabetes.  It can also be used to help lower cholesterol, although we usually do not worry about elevated cholesterol because it will decline on its own when a person follows a development program.

            The dosage is about 200 to 600 mcg or 0.2 to 0.6 mg per day.  If one gives extra chromium, one must also give more zinc to keep the sodium/potassium ratio balanced.  The ratio of the two is between 1:1 and 2:1.


            Iodine (as kelp).  We give extra kelp in the form of kelp wraps to new clients who are very malnourished and who are willing to do them.

We may also give extra kelp capsules or granules to some people who seem to need extra iodine for a while, however this is not done often.  Extra kelp does not usually influence the sodium/potassium ratio.  The dosage of the capsules is 600 to 1800 mg of extra kelp daily.  We only recommend certain brands of kelp capsules.  For details, read Kelp.


            Selenium.  Extra selenium can help with mercury toxicity.  In fact, most people are quite deficient in selenium and can take between 100 and 300 mcg extra per day.  Selenium will raise the sodium/potassium ratio to a slight degree, but usually no other supplement is needed to balance it.
