Calcification in the Body and Teeth


I have a question about calcification in the body and teeth.

What causes it and how do I get it out of my body and teeth?

I have been plagued by abscess teeth most of my adult life and have lost over half my teeth to this...I have had many root canals for these and now I am having to have them redone because those are even abscessing again.

The problem now is there is calcification which prevents the dentist from getting to the root. Also have recently been diagnosed with a fibroid tumor in the Uterus that has calcification....I am wondering what caused all this calcification in my body.

I also have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, chronic low back pain and I can see a mild case of joint swelling in one of my I know that there must be calcification in my joints...hence the back pain. I am 62 years old. Can you advise me to a book, or site where I can get some info on diet, supplements etc. on how to remedy this problem?

Thank you,

J.P., Wisconsin

Hi, J.P.:

It sounds to me like you have a diet consisting of a grave overbalance of concentrated protein.
