I’m going to show you a simple home test you can do to help determine if you have a calcium deficiency.

Calcium is a mineral we need for our muscles, bones, tendons, ligaments, and the nervous system.

The most common cause of calcium deficiency is the body not absorbing calcium or utilizing it properly.

Symptoms of calcium deficiency:
• Anxiety
• Irritability
• Insomnia
• Muscle tension
• Spasms or cramps
• Low back pain
• Constipation
• High blood pressure
• Heart palpitations
• Frequent nose bleeds
• Soft fingernails
• Frequent cold sores
• Frequent sunburns (with limited sun exposure)
• Hives
• Frequent fevers
• Frequent hoarseness
• Chronic coughing
• Difficulty falling asleep

Many things can lower your absorption of calcium, including:
• Low vitamin D
• Low magnesium
• Low levels of hydrochloric acid in the stomach
• A deficiency of essential fatty acids
• Low estrogen
• Excessively alkaline blood
• Gut inflammation
• Hypothyroidism
• Low calcitonin

The best test for calcium deficiency (don’t do this test if you have peripheral vascular disease):
1. Wrap a standard blood pressure cuff around your calf
2. Pump it up and record the number showing when you start feeling a cramp, then stop and deflate
3. If the number is:
• 200 or less—suspect a calcium deficiency
• 200 to 220—you have sufficient calcium levels
• 220 to 240—you have optimal calcium levels
Don’t go above 240
