    Torus Palatinus - need input on how to treat naturally

    Is the phosphorus/calcium ratio in the diet really important for good health?

    Should I be concerned if I eat much more meat than dairy? Has anyone noticed a significant improvement in any way after consuming more calcium and less phosphorus?

    Low Vitamin D (25OHD) Or Calcium Deficiency?

    Hello everyone, I have seen some people testing both their storage (25OHD) and active (1,25OHD) vitamin D, and those with low storage D had almost always high active D. Reading on the connection between 1,25D and PTH has brought me to the hypothesis that possibly people with low storage D /...
