Calcium deposits are the buildup of the mineral within the body. Unlike calcium deposits on teeth, calcium deposits in the body typically appear around the joints of the body and cause the person to experience pain and inflammation.


Because treatment may involve the surgical removal of the deposits, you may want to try a remedy to dissolve the deposit first. Keep in mind that you should speak to your doctor before treating a calcium deposit at home.

Step 1

Massage the affected area. Massaging can help improve blood flow to the area that has the calcium deposit as well as reduce any pain that you may be experiencing. This method can be helpful as you attempt to dissolve the calcium deposits.

Step 2

Measure out two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar. You can find this type of vinegar at grocery stores as well as at nutritional supplement suppliers.

Step 3

Add two tablespoons of honey to the apple cider vinegar and stir in the ingredients thoroughly.

Step 4

Combine the honey and apple cider vinegar to eight ounces of cold water and stir or shake thoroughly. Drink the entire mixture.


Step 5

Repeat taking the honey and apple cider vinegar mixture two to three more times over the course of the day. It is recommended by the Doctor Yourself website that you continue to drink this concoction until the calcium deposits have dissolved.

Things You'll Need

  • Apple cider vinegar

  • Honey

  • Water


Don’t restrict your calcium intake to get rid of calcium deposits unless directed by your doctor. Low-calcium diets may put a person at risk for bone disorders such as osteoporosis.
