Things that affect blood calcium levels:
  • calcium absorption from diet
  • parathyroid hormone (PTH) controls bone resorption to increase blood calcium levels when they drop too low
  • vitamin D affects how well calcium is absorbed and transported
  • vitamin A inhibits the action of vitamin D
  • vitamin K2 takes blood calcium and puts it in the bones/teeth
  • lithium changes the calcium level at which PTH is released
  • warfarin inhibits vitamin K
  • magnesium affects absorption/utilization of calcium
  • Things that blood calcium levels affect:
  • bone and tooth mineralization
  • high levels are excitatory
  • bipolar disorder
  • calcification - stones (kidney, gall, etc), plaques
  • keratin production (hair, nails, skin, etc)

Just jumping in here to share that someone on another list recently brought up the importance of the ratio between calcium and phosphorous in the blood. Based on the work of Dr. Page, a colleague of Weston price, he showed that if these two things were in the proper ratio int he blood, it prevented cavities and chronic disease. I need to go back and read more, just saw you mention blood calcium levels and I wanted to get this thought out there.
I actually have one of his books - he used tiny amounts of hormones to tweak blood calcium and phosphorus levels to prevent cavities, tarter, and gum disease. As a side effect, he noticed that 'posterior pituitary' (PTH) could cure bipolar disorder.
Wow, that's neat. Which book do you have? Does it say anything about measuring the arms and leg length? I haven't found what this person was talking about yet.
Okay, here's a link about the calcium and phosphorous ratio in the blood:

But the person that posted this also talked about something about measuring your arm and leg length, and that somehow gave you certain related information. I need to go back and see what they posted and I'll report back.
I have Degeneration Regeneration (I think, I'll have to check)
Health vs Disease
Blood calcium flowing into cells through calcium ion channels act as regulators of cell function. Normally, magnesium and taurine sit in those channels, preventing calcium from entering. A deficiency in either one of those, therefore, will look similar to high blood calcium levels.

Glutamate keeps calcium channels open, increasing the effect of blood calcium.
