Young Daughter Suffers Broken Bones, Cavities

Posted by Anonymous (Anonymous) on 09/02/2011

My daughter is 14 years old and has fractured or broken around 11 bones. When she was around 7 thru 9 she has alot of cavities even though she brushed her teeth and didn't eat that many sweets. I feel there is an issue with calcium absorption. I would like a holistic viewpoint as I have been asked to take her to the doctor and I don't want them to put her on something that will mask the real problem. What testing would you suggest or do you have any thoughts about what could be causing this? Thank you and I hope you have the time to answer me. I am concerned.

Most people with serious cavities are deficient in molybdenum. The molybdenum I choose is sodium molybdate, and I put a small pinch kept in the mouth or make my own toothpaste with 0.1 to 0.5% sodium molybdate. The fluoride never reduces it and makes bones much worse. Consuming that a pinch a day for a month is generally all you need of that. The other issue is bones, especially the enamel of teeth needs threonine, so for a child's dose with a bone problem I believe 1000 to 1500 mg. and lysine 1500 mg a day. This is assuming she has also adequate zinc acetate for normal growth of bones, if not then 25 mg of zinc acetate take twice a week for a month or two should be adequate. Sodium molybdate is extremely effective on toothaches and cavities but it also prevents bone fractures.

But if she has broken bones, I think drinking aloe vera juice everyday will help healing, the active substance is beta sitosterol and the body needs very small amounts of that, something like 5 to 10 mg., but aloe vera juice is easier to find. You probably know about vitamin D, but that generally helps the muscle more, but it does help bone growth, but the sodium molybdate is spectacular in cases of cavities and brittle bones, when nothing else works.
