It bears saying a few things here for anyone that is inclined to be working off of the “Reams” pattern sheets that are typical of the RBTI (Reams Biological Theory of Ionization) method.
On these sheets you will note that Vitamin D is shown as being useful if urine pH goes low. BUT, and this is a big BUT – Vitamin D could be contraindicated if the individual has a very low breath rate.
This is very important and never mentioned in strictly “Reams” classes. Low breath rate may be indicative of a too alkaline leaning blood stream. As we know from studing the work of Royal Lee, Vitamin D pulls calcium into the blood stream. It makes the blood calcium retentive.
Pulling calcium – a very alkaline mineral – into an already too alkaline environment is going to further exacerbate an erroneous condition and your client can run into more trouble. Beyond possibly building kidney stones, could they have a healing crises?
No not likely – though they may feel really bad and it appears like a healing crises, but what they are more likely having is a practitioner crises – i.e. the practitioner did what should not be done. We see this all the time. The question is, did the practitioner learn from this event?
Correlated to this process is the calcium issue. Calcium, given without regard to the co-factors that allow calcium to go where it is needed is a problem. For example, calcium carbonate without the appropriate co-factors can lead to calcification of the lens of the eye leading to cataracts down the road.
These co-factors are not listed on any Reams pattern sheets that we have ever seen. So, before you go about using calcium carbonate or coral calcium (which is calcium carbonate along with other minerals) or any other calcium, please begin to become aware of the cofactors needed to get calcium where it needs to go.
