Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) correlates teeth and bone formation with the Kidney Meridian.
Then why is oxalic acid a tooth’s best friend and (supposedly) a kidney’s worst enemy?
70-80% of kidney stones are composed of calcium oxalate. Did you read my blog entry “Calcium (Too Much Is Toxic or Abuse)”?
By the 1940s, most dentists knew fluoride had little to do with tooth enamelization (or re-enamelization), whereas oxalic acid had lots to do with it.
(Is this another example of today’s “medical amnesia”?)
Most dentists didn’t know the role of vanadium and L-tryptophan in the process, but that’s another story for another day.
Oxalic acid and oxalates are friends to both teeth and kidneys when you learn to work with the alchemical (“all the chemistry”) similarities between oxalic acid, ascorbic acid, dehydroascorbic acid (DHA), and semi-dehydroascorbic acid (SDA).
Oxalic acid is a threat to those who don’t grasp the relevance of the time context (TAI MING) of oxalate-rich enamel protectors like coffee, cocoa, spinach, rhubarb, parsley, chives, purslane, amaranth, strawberries, turnips, etc. (Do you know WHEN to eat these foods?)
Oxalic acid is also a threat to tobacco smokers and drug abusers (including pharmaceutical drugs) and those having serious metabolic disorders like diabetes or cancer.
Ascorbic acid is easily oxidized into oxalic acid under metabolic stress.
Ascorbic acid is both a potent antioxidant and a potent generator of free radicals.
Plant-based foods contain the most potent teeth and kidney protectors on the planet – oxalic acid, tannins, and phytic acid – but it’s important to deal with their downside.
For example, health food “experts” warn you against phytic acid blocking mineral absorption, then sell it back to you as IP6 (inositol hexaphosphate) to inhibit cell proliferation and carcinogenesis.
How do you begin making oxalic acid your entire body’s best friend? (It can clean and bleach your teeth and bones, and remove “rust” and “stains” from cells.)
How do you begin making the phytic acid in grains and beans and the tannins in tea your entire body’s best friends?
(1) Start eating the Chronobiotic Nutrition way (Time-Conscious Eating) and
(2) avoid the pitfalls of a “civilized” lifestyle and its attendant refined and overrefined prana-less and prana-free manufactured “foods.”
