Natural treatments for calcium deposits can break down deposits, reduce inflammation and relieve pain.

Apple cider vinegar, magnesium and chanca piedra are three of our most successful home remedies. Calcium is necessary for the structure and functioning of the body, but excess calcium can lead to a number of problems, including calcium deposits.

While treatments vary depending on the location and cause of deposits, natural remedies for the condition help balance the level of calcium in the body. Treatments such as apple cider vinegar and herbs help the body to use calcium more effectively and dissolve calcium deposits.

What Causes Calcium Deposits?

If you’ve recently received a diagnosis for calcium deposits, you are likely wondering how you developed the condition, especially since you are not one to overindulge in dairy products. While dairy is to blame in some cases, such as with kidney stones, a number of other factors are more common causes. In some cases, calcification is simply a normal part of aging, yet other factors include injury, infection, disorders with calcium metabolism, and genetics or autoimmune disease.

Home Remedies to Dissolve Calcium Deposits

No matter the cause of your calcium deposits, you can use natural options to treat them. While you may consider trying a number of options, some of the most effective include apple cider vinegar, magnesium, and chanca piedra.

1. Apple Cider Vinegar

One of our stand-by treatments, apple cider vinegar is an effective option for treating calcium deposits as well. The vinegar dissolves the misplaced calcium and even restores the natural balance of nutrients in the body. Drink at least 1 tablespoon of ACV diluted in 8 ounces of water daily.

2. Magnesium

Healthy cells contain high levels of magnesium and lower levels of calcium, so your calcium deposits are likely a result of an imbalance. Boosting the magnesium in your system will help breakdown the calcium deposits and restore the natural mineral levels in your body.

3. Chanca Piedra

Chanca piedra is a medicinal herb. The herb helps reduce inflammation and treat pain, but it also helps breakdown the buildup of calcium in the body. This option is so effective, you’ll likely experience immediate relief.

Depending on their location, calcium deposits can be uncomfortable or very painful. Give one of these treatment options a try or continue reading below to see what our readers recommend and let us know how it worked for you.

After 20 years of chasing down fibromyalgia docs, alternative, I now have spect & bone scans showing inflammation all down my spine. The mid neck is just a ball of fire & need a discechtomy & fusion put on hold because of the corona virus. But I remember I was told 20 years ago I had stage 4 spine calcification & it was too hard to treat. As I'd already been in pain for 7 years I just cried & had no idea what it meant + I developed adrenal, thyroid, liver, kidney, pancreatic, toxicities, mineral deficiencies. Those mcs symptoms & being homeless distracted me from the spinal issues. I had no idea I had a viral & bacterial infection list as long as my arm. all mycoplasma, rr, bmf, ebv, cmv, cpn, h pylori. I read ca can be lay down in response to inflammation, infection, trauma. I have no idea if all this is related or I have a couple of different issues going on. I was hopeful when the operation was booked but now its not & I have read there is no cure for a calcified spine I cannot go on. The pain is severe!! I listen to peoples social isolation. They have no idea. Really on your own & for 2 decades not 2 months. I never get a phone call, email on my birthday ever. Or any other day. People should try real isolation before winging. Anyway, how can I fix a calcified spine?

I had a lump behind my ear since childhood related to a maxillofacial injury possibly. I tried a series of natural and herbal remedies, one being chanca Piedra. The lump was gone in a week of using the remedies. And I passed a golf ball size stone, and white powder. None of the remedies were white powder. If the remedies dissolve the calcium deposits entirely I will not need maxillofacial surgery that could cost near $100,000 if joint replacement.

A well known doctor from Naples, Florida, a specialist in health and nutrition, has said the rock calcium is not organic calcium and never should be in vitamin supplements or food. He said calcium carbonate causes pea gravel calcium deposits in the brain. Calcium carbonate is rock calcium. It could be what the deposits are from. I had one calcification in the brain area on a CT. He said calcium citrate is the right organic calcium. I switched to it.

I am not sure if calcium carbonate in toothpaste is an issue. But most don't eat it. I am guarding against that bad calcium and seeing some results with the chanca Piedra. I use herbs cautiously. I am going into another round of chanca Piedra and see what results I get before going into a possible $100,000 surgery. I believe God gave us herbs in Genesis. I figure it is the right way to go.

To Debra Parker (Brisbane), I am very sorry for your troubles. It may be a longshot (but an inexpensive longshot) but I have had some decent success with using magnesium oxide (solid pill) and magnesium hydroxide (Milk of Magnesia) in dealing with bone pain issues I believe are related to calcium/autoimmune issues. The solid pill form helped moderately with the pain...the Milk of Magnesia dramatically (and surprisingly) helped. Given the length and severity of your symptoms, you might want to try the Milk of Magnesia first...but ramp up to std dosage, in case of adverse effects. I know this sounds bizarre (I was very surprised myself) but magnesium does play a big role in calcium/bone regulation and related pain issues (you can Google). And for some reason, the Milk of Magnesia formulation really amplifies the benefits (perhaps due to magnesium dosage or absorbability). I wish you good luck.


Outstanding suggestion!

Much more sensible than taking the solid forms of Mg in pill and capsule form and hoping they will be assimilated. Milk of Magnesia is pure Mg hydroxide with no added fillers and other binding agents you'll be ingesting along with Mg pills and capsules.

Thanks for your suggestion! :)

I was having pain in my shoulder and elbow and I started drinking ginger tea every morning. Pain is gone! I use Apple Cider Vinegar for other reasons but it did not help my shoulder.

My Doctor told me that I have calcium deposits at my shoulder joint. its painful. He has given some antiboitics and asked me to try to physio therapy, but it did not help me till now. its still painful. Have not tried any of the given options yet. Just found the article on this. Will try from tomorrow.
