In this video, Dr. Berg talks about a twitching underneath the left eyelid or a condition called Tetany, it is an excitable nerve where the nerve is twitching. Some people use Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) as a remedy to this condition. Twitching could mean that there is something going on in the body that’s not right.
Two Main Causes of Tetany:
1. Low Calcium
2. Alkalosis – The blood is a little too alkaline.
Calcium is mobilized in the body, it’s absorbed in the body with an acid pH in the stomach. If you don’t have enough acid in the stomach, that could be one cause of alkalosis and that could be one of the reason why you’re not absorbing the calcium.
Potential Reasons/Cause Why You Have Low Calcium:
• Rarely could be a parathyroid problem.
• Taking too much magnesium – calcium and magnesium should work together and taking too much of one, the other one goes down.
• Too Low in vitamin D – You’re not going to be able to absorb the calcium. Vitamin D helps improve the absorption of calcium by 20x in the small intestine.
• Low Dietary Calcium (Low greens, low dairy)
Normally the pH of the blood is within a very narrow range between - 7.35-7.45. 7 being neutral, and when you go above neutral, it means you’re getting more alkaline and anything below 7 is more acid. With alkalosis, it’s above 7.45.
Symptoms of Alkalosis:
Possible Cause of Alkalosis:
• Low Stomach Acid
• Vomiting / Laxatives
• Low Potassium
• High Cortisol – Stress
