>how much salt for instance to leach CA out of the bones,

Studies have shown that even 1500 mgs can cause a negative calcium balance even at a high calcium intake. If it was me, I would limit salt to only what occurred naturally in natural foods, which is about 500 mgs, and avoid all added salt in anyway, especially in any packaged processed foods.

>> do i just need an extra cup of greens a day?

Greens are one of the most nutrient dense foods and are good sources of Vit K, boron, magnesium and calcium, etc. I would recommend including several servings a day. The more the better.

>>does it matter really if greens are
raw, frozen, steamed, boiled, micro-waved for nutrition?


Again, as this is not the forum to deal with personal issues in such detail, and considering the complexity of your situation, I would recommend you find a good local health care professional who you trust and feel comfortable working with so you can get the personal detailed attention you need and deserve.
