Osteoporosis Part 1 Over View

Readers of my newsletter, friends, family and prior patients have asked me a lot of questions about osteoporosis. It seems that low bone density is of great concern worldwide. And rightly so for one of three women and one of five men develop osteoporosis. Currently 44 million Americans have been diagnosed with osteoporosis.


Unfortunately the standard treatment does not help everyone regain their bone mass. Are you one of those people who takes your calcium, exercises regularly and takes your osteoporosis drugs faithfully and you still show low density on your Dexa scan?


I can hear your frustration. You’re concerned that your porous and fragile bones are very susceptible to fracture and loss of height which can lead to chronic pain. Maybe you’ve already experienced fractures and are in pain. Maybe your doctor has scared you with these words, “If you don’t start this ________ (fill in the blank with the name of the drug he mentioned), any little fall or mishap will fracture your bones”.


When people came to me with these frustrating concerns I never told them they had to live with their current level of bone density because there’s so much more to dealing with osteoporosis than calcium supplementation, exercise and drugs.


Instead there’s a whole array of bone building measures most of which you can easily implement yourself once you understand what’s causing the osteoporosis and what you can do about it.


Hope springs eternal in the human heart and I’m here to shed the light on the hope for rebuilding your bones into strong vibrant structures. So take heart. In this series of articles on osteoporosis we’re going to review some things you may never have come across in your search for alternative approaches to dealing with osteoporosis.


But I’m also going to clue you in on some of the things I’ve discovered about building healthy bones and I’m going to introduce you to some other medical doctors and health researchers who have done a phenomenal job of finding answers to reversing osteoporosis.


So hold onto your hats. Over the next month or two we will be exploring these topics as they relate to building your vibrant bony structure:

1. Nutrition – always the first thing to discuss because it’s so absolutely foundational. But I have some tips and insights that you’ve not heard before!

2. Detoxification – this topic may be the single most revealing and helpful to you for replenishing your bones.

3. Supplements – it takes more than calcium to build bones.

4. Hormone replacement – a major influencer of bone remodeling.

5. Exercise – easier than you think.

6. Drugs – not my first choice and hopefully not a choice you will ever have to make! I’ll tell you why you need to avoid them if at all possible.


That’s it, 6 steps to healthy bones. This is going to be a fun ride as you join me on this adventure into brilliant bone health.
