Vitamin C & oxalates [Snippet]

If you have a tendency to kidney stones and muscle aches, it may be because you are not processing the oxalates in your body. What can you do?

Spinach – not always good for you!

DIET: Food high in oxlates needs to be avoided; this includes spinach, chocolates, nuts, seeds, soy, beets, rhubarb, black pepper, poppy seeds, buckwheat and strong tea.

GUT: If you have an overgrowth of candida, this will add to your oxalate woes: candida in its overgrown form not only uses up valuable nutrients, it also produces oxalates. If you have candidiasis and can’t shift it, contact me; I can most probably help you.

VITAMIN C: We think of vitamin C as being really healthy… it is, and it isn’t. This is because vitamon C metabolises to oxalates, and if your body is already high in them, this just will add to the load that has to be processed. If you get kidney stones and muscle ache due to oxalates, make sure you have vitamin C (through fresh foods), but don’t supplement more than a minimum amount if at all.

More on oxalates is here on Wikipedia.
