Osteoporosis 14 Drugs – Friend or Foe?

So far we’ve covered osteoporosis from 13 different aspects and there’s still so much more wonderful information to glean.


A person who has experienced a problem and developed a passion to find answers for it often becomes a go-to expert on the subject.


Such is the case for Vivian Goldschmidt. Surprised to discover that she had osteoporosis at age 50, she decided to go beyond the conventional treatments for it. That started her quest and research into natural healing for osteoporosis.


You really need to meet her to glean her expertise.

Osteoporosis 13 – Without This Vitamin Calcium Won’t Get in Your Bones

Vitamin K

Best known for its influence on proper clotting in the body, especially in newborns, vitamin K also plays a vital role in bone health. It acts as a co-factor to produce osteocalcin, a bone protein that becomes an integral part of the bone.


Vitamin K has two parts; K1 which mainly activates the blood clotting process and K2 which plugs calcium into the bone matrix. Without optimal levels of K2 all of that calcium that we’ve been taking may never have a chance to be plugged into our bones.


Green veggies contain K1, especially:

  • Kale
  • Spinach

Supplements Specific for Osteoporosis Part 12

When it comes to nutrition for healthy bones of course the most important source of bone healthy nutrients should come from the food we eat. The calcium and other minerals in fresh vegetables contain lots of cofactors that help in the assimilation of these minerals into the bone. And the form of minerals in food is easier to absorb than the form in most supplements.


However, supplements for bone health can be very important too.


Of course we all think of calcium supplementation for osteoporosis but even doctors get stuck there and don’t take into consideration all of … Read the rest

Osteoporosis 11 SuperSlow and Super Effective Exercise

On our journey through the osteoporosis prevention and reversal saga we’ve covered some not-so-well-known topics like toxicity and natural hormone therapy.


In this chapter of the saga we will encounter a more well-known recommendation, exercise. But perhaps you will learn some new and more specific techniques of exercise that apply to dealing specifically with osteoporosis.


Bones need stress to stimulate the production of more bone tissue. Walking, biking, swimming, dancing, etc. produce some stress on the bones, but muscle strengthening using weights stresses the bones even more.


Uh-oh, I can already hear you saying, “But I don’t … Read the rest

Dr. John Lee, Pioneer Uses Progesterone to Reverse Osteoporosis

In Dr. John Lee’s study of osteoporosis he discovered that bone mass stays relatively constant from puberty to a few years before menopause by the balance of osteoclast function (break down of old bone) and osteoblast function (formation of new bone).


However, in the years just before and post-menopause estrogen deficiency results in increased bone breakdown (resorption) and has very little effect on bone formation. On the other hand testosterone and progesterone both stimulate the osteoblast cells to form new bone.


After studying Raymond F. Peat’s observations about natural progesterone in 1982 Dr. John Lee, MD began treating … Read the rest

Osteoporosis 9 – Is Natural Progesterone Really Better?

Why use natural progesterone to reverse osteoporosis? Won’t the progestin drugs work the same?


How does natural progesterone differ from the progestins (synthetic drugs that mimic some actions of the human-body-produced progesterone)?


Hormones proceed through metabolic pathways in their production. Progesterone holds a pivotal place in that pathway which starts with cholesterol. (See, I’ve told you elsewhere that cholesterol is actually a good guy. One good thing is the production of vitally needed hormones.)


There are actually several intermediary hormones that are produced in the sex hormone pathway with big fancy names. But for our understanding today … Read the rest

Osteoporosis 8 – A Far More Effective Hormone Than Estrogen

Another big “secret” that everyone really should know (but somehow they don’t)!


Osteoporosis responds well to hormones, but there’s more to the hormone story than estrogen alone.


Bone building and remodeling involves other hormones in a dance, a biofeedback with one another. Estrogen modulates the breakdown of bone, preventing it from breaking down too fast. So the conventional approach uses estrogen to try to slow down the breakdown of bone in the development or progression of osteoporosis.


But using estrogen alone to deal with osteoporosis leads to the commonly held conclusion of many doctors, that bone degeneration … Read the rest

Get the Lead Out of Your Bones

After reading Osteoporosis 4 – Never Reversed Without Detoxification you now know that it’s really tough to get the calcium and other minerals back in your bones without getting the toxic metals out first. Those poisonous heavy metals block the uptake of minerals into the cellular bone building structure.
