Prolly be a good idea just to try lowering your dose or you will be forever wondering.
You can always go back on if it doesn't help.
4 grains is a lot... but if you're a Queen sized woman its not unreasonable!
Love that you are making your calcium from egg shells, that's what I do when I make my dogs food. Its the perfect waste not want not!
I have not been able to find a way of getting the shells to a powder though. Okay for my pups but too gritty for me.
Used both my blender and a coffee grinder... I've also tried baking them in the oven for a couple of hours (which you have to do with commercial eggs.. 350 for 15 minutes... anyway to remove the wax they put on them), grinding them and soaking overnite in vinegar.
If you find a way to get it ground to a powder, please share!
I get my calcium from cheese, milk and bones. Been stewing organic chicken drumsticks in a crock pot, remove the flesh, then put the bones back with a bit of apple cider vinegar and crock 'em until they are soft. The broth I use to make soups or to flash steam my veggies.
I eat one leg bone a day. I either grind it up in my blender when I'm making one of my green puree soups, or eat it like you would a carrot... it falls apart in the mouth and is tasty.
What has really helped my back is Zumba. Really loosened up my pelvis. Plus I've been sitting on my coffee table, rather than a chair while I'm typing. Its totally uncomfortable but it forces me to take breaks AND I am seeing some increase in flexibility. Not as much as I'd like but WUTTADEAL! ha
