  Eggshells for Calcium?

After years of working with clients using the hair tissue mineral analysis, or HTMA, I have come to notice patterns that recur in many people. For instance, the majority of people that I have worked with are struggling with both systemic inflammation and low thyroid function, even those who don't struggle with symptoms of ill health. These imbalances show up through the sodium to potassium ratio and the calcium to potassium ratio.

As it turns out,  taking adequate calcium helps to suppress the inflammatory mediators and helps the thyroid to work more efficiently. Unfortunately, most calcium supplements on the market are bound to fillers and expedients that can irritate the gut.

Fortunately, ground eggshells are not and offer not only calcium but 27 other minerals that are crucial in optimizing one's health and removing heavy metals from the system.

EGGSHELLS! Yes, eggshell calcium offers the body a balanced calcium source due to trace amounts of other minerals contained in it. Eggshell calcium is probably the best natural source of calcium, and it is easier for your body to digest and absorb

One whole medium sized eggshell makes about one teaspoon of powder, which yields about 750 - 800 mgs of elemental* calcium plus other microelements, i.e. magnesium, boron, copper, iron, manganese, molybdenum, sulphur, silicon, zinc, etc.

How to Make Powdered Eggshells:

  1. Wash empty eggshells in warm water until all of the egg white is removed, but do not remove the membrane because it contains important nutrients for the joints which helps arthritis.
  2. Lay broken pieces out on paper towels and allow them to air dry thoroughly.
  3. Break the eggshells up into small pieces, and grind them to into a fine powder in a food processor, blender, coffee grinder, or a nut mill, or put them in a plastic bag and use a rolling pin to grind them. Please note that some blenders will not grind the eggshell into a fine enough powder. A coffee grinder works the best.
  4. Store powdered eggshells in a covered glass jar or container. Keep it in a dry place, like the kitchen cupboard.


I most often recommend 1 teaspoon per day of the powdered eggshells with food but for best results, please have a HTMA to determine your individual needs.

Spring Flowers
Our Biggest Sale Ever!

For me, May brings gratitude. Lots of it. I find myself looking at the spring flowers and feeling extremely lucky to be alive. Everytime I feel the warm sun on my face, I am reminded of how grateful I am to have such excellent health. Everytime I hear from a client whose life has improved, I am reminded about how blessed I am with the work that I do.

Being able to work with people, all over the world, to assist them along their journey for improved health is indeed a fabulous blessing. Just a few days ago, I received this letter from a woman who had traveled from the Middle East to Madison, WI for a visit to the Optimal Health Center:

"Thank you so very much for being there.  The services and products that you provide are in direct frequency with divine intervention to those of us in search of quality products, and expert guidance and care given with love.  One of the high points of my trip back to America was meeting you, Kristina, and Dee Dee, and experiencing the healings that I received during my three days of healing at the Optimal Health Center using the Colon Hydrotherapy, FIR Sauna treatments and Massage. 

While serving here in the Middle East, I had an increase of sinus, upper respiratory and bronchial infections because of the dust.  Along with this immune system compromise came inflammation, stiffness, decreased circulation and an increase in my lower back pain, also grinding my teeth at night because of the pain, stiffness and tension.  After my antibiotic treatments, I increased my probiotics, MSM, Spirulina, antioxidants, and tried to work out more.  I started to feel better, but, I was still too stiff and my back hurt.  I needed the catalytic boost that the colonics and FIR Sauna would bring to my system.  So, as you know during my trip to the USA, I made it a priority to visit your clinic for three days of treatments.  Dee Dee was amazing at helping me to coordinate these appointments.

Honestly, Kristina, I must tell you that my constant runny nose has dried up. My lower back pain/stiffness is gone and I am able to deepen my yoga practice.  I know that the treatments help the adrenal glands because, I am able to awaken fully after a nights sleep; no longer groggy and tired.  I have an increased range of motion where I once felt inflammation; I know that my circulation is improved.  The FIR Sauna is something that I wanted to experience ever since I read about it in your Newsletter, and it is everything that it is reported to be.  Fantastic!  I do appreciate your endeavors through healing.  To do what you are doing and to share your knowledge with others is brave, courageous and unselfish.  Thank you many times over.  See you and Dee Dee next trip.

Warmest Regards,

In the gesture of sharing the gratitude that I feel from doing the healing work that I do, the Optimal Health Network will have a 4 day, 16% off all products sale for newsletter subscribers Saturday, May 19th-Tuesday, May 22nd. Don't miss our biggest sale ever!

A few words from a couple who purchased the newest silicone colon tube:42 FR Silicone Colon Tube with Delrin Cap:

                   42FRSilicone CT Fininshed


"You and colleagues at OHN have our high recommendation and thanks for what really is exemplary customer care.

As we have discussed, my wife and I sometimes use a colon tube to administer deep 3 quart enemas.  Having heeded your recommendation by return e mail that we switch from Latex to Silicone tubes, we ordered and were amazed and delighted at the prompt despatch to us.

Together with the 36" 42Fr silicone colon tube we took the opportunity to buy a spare 3 Quart amber bag, (they really are beautiful) a Smooth Flow Syringe and hose system and hose clamps.  

Companies who care for customers ensure they continue to deliver products of the highest quality in a timely manner backed by excellent communication, knowledgeable advice and support. OHN has never failed us in this respect.

We purchase all our Enema Equipment from OHN and will continue to do so. Your excellent web site, product range and level of service just seems to get better.

My wife and are committed to a lifestyle involving regular enemas feeling sure that our continued good health, freshness of mind and feeling of well-being owe a lot to an open attitude to colonic health. 

The fact that OHN is behind us, supporting us with with good advice, a warm welcome and top quality replacement products at the drop of an e mail is extremely gratifying and encouraging.

You can be sure of our continued business.  Thank you for your service to us. 

 With kind regards.  Phillip and Joan, England"

An email from an older gentlean who has resolved his Irritable Bowel Syndrome using enemas, enema implants using Celtic sea salt and our made-for-enema coffee and the 35-day program laid out inKristina Amelong's Ten Days to Optimal Health

Ten Days book cover

"Thank-you for your reply to my E-mail.  I am 60 years old and have been affected by IBS for many years.  Two quart enemas seem to have helped, but it was not until I started following your dietary suggestions in "Ten Days. . ." that I've been feeling really great.
Using therapeutic enemas as outlined in your book, with
sea salt and coffee, made a big difference too, I'm sure; but using your expertise in nutrition combined with colon therapy is an extremely powerful method for hopefully solving my problem as well as other's IBS.  Curtailing my consumption of sodas - what not to consume as just one example, is just as important as the use of raw foods. I purchased your book several months ago and it has taken some time to integrate your findings into my life style. 

I encourage readers of this message to "hang in there"
because you give a lot of information to be assimilated. Gradual change is sometimes better for seniors. The reference material, research finding, and the various websites provide credibility to your methods.

Thanks again for your help."
