liver calcification
Posted by: John
Date: August 18, 2002 6:07 PM

I have calcification of the liver. This showed up in 2 ultrasounds done on my lower GI. I may have had them since I was a baby. I have struggled to stay well my entire life. I've suffered from numerous allergies, fatigue, mood swings, & general unwellness my entire life. I'm now 50 years old & lately have been too tired to move a good portion of the time. I have started taking acupuncture treatments to restore my liver function but so far I feel much worse. I wonder if the calcium deposits could be blocking the flow of bile out of my liver which would allow toxins to be reabsorbed into my blood stream? Is there a reliable way to get rid of calcium deposits in the liver? I've heard mention of chelation therapy & magnesium therapy? Is prolotherapy ever used on the liver? What are the chances I could ever get rid of these deposits & return to health? Are there any studies that have been done that you know of?

As it relates to fatigue, calcification of the liver may be a red herring. But since you asked, I will discuss it. The more general term is "ectopic" calcification which means the deposition of calcium in places where it is not supposed to be. A common example would be arterial plaque formation. IV chelation is an excellent treatment for vascular plaque formation, but only a minor part of the benefit derived is from actual calcium removal. The newest discovery regarding ectopic calcium deposition involves nanobacteria, an organism which apparently builds a calcium matrix around its colonies and entombs itself in the form of ectopic calcium. It is rather common. There is a method of diagnosis and treatment. I will refer you to for details. As to your fatigue I will refer you to my article which outlines the most common cause of fatigue:
