“Dr. Lisa Lilienfield describes the disease process involved in osteoporosis and osteopenia.

The End of Osteoporosis


“Too many of us suffer from bone health issues and receive poor medical care and horrible nutritional counseling. This Markito Nutrition lecture teaches you that we can wipe out osteoporosis completely- if only we were given the right information. Join me today in the fight against a disease that need not exist. http://markitonutrition.com”

TREATMENT

Osteoporosis Treatment – Dr. Weil, drweil.com
Suggested Lifestyle Changes for Osteoporosis Treatment
“Get enough calcium. Choose organic, high quality dairy products such as yogurt and non-fat milk. Eat more sardines (with bones), dark green vegetables like collard greens, bok choy and broccoli, soy products like tofu, and calcium-fortified soy milk and orange juice. Consider taking a calcium supplement for osteoporosis treatment if you are not eating at least three servings of dairy per day and/or calcium-fortified foods, if you are postmenopausal or if you have a family history of osteoporosis…

Clearly, doctors should educate their patients on how to PREVENT osteoporosis instead of prescribing potentially toxic osteoporosis drugs. But unfortunately, most doctors have been indoctrinated to think that the best way to solve a health problem is with a “magic pill”, and often don’t bother with natural solutions. Of course there will be the obligatory calcium recommendation (typically by incorrectly suggesting an INCREASE in dairy consumption), but that’s where it all ends….”

Natural remedies for joint health

“…
Glucosamine and Chondroitin are two components of the cartilage structure which is needed to help repair and strengthen the joint. Breakdown of the soft, cushioning cartilage occurs when high amounts of inflammation are present and these nutrients help to further protect the joint and reduce damage. There are many studies to support the claim of using these joint nutrients long term to help stabilise the joint and rebuild cartilage.

“…It makes you wonder how two innocent-seeming pills could have such dramatic power. Glucosamine and chondroitin both occur naturally in the human body, but most commercial glucosamine comes from the chitin, or exo-skeleton, of shellfish, and most commercial chondroitin from cow or shark cartilage. Both have relatively low rates of absorption from the intestines, and yet both are said to promote healing of the articular cartilage in joints. It’s the wearing away of this cartilage that causes the pain and inflammation of osteoarthritis….”

“Food to Build Bone Health” with Amy Lanou, PHD from youtube.com
“Published on Mar 20, 2012

For years, doctors have been telling us to drink milk, eat dairy products, and take calcium pills to improve our bone vitality. The problem is, they’re wrong. This webinar will go over the latest clinical studies and the most up-to-date medical information to help you strengthen your bones, reduce the risk of fractures, and prevent osteoporosis. You’ll learn why there’s no proof of calcium’s effectiveness, despite what doctors say, and why a low-acid diet is the only effective way to prevent bone loss.

Amy Lanou, PhD, a professor in Health and Wellness, is an expert in nutrition and her book “Building Bone Vitality” was featured in the New York Times. Lanou, who holds a doctorate in human nutrition from Cornell University, joined the UNC Asheville faculty in 2005. She has played an instrumental role in creating programs and coursework for UNC Asheville’s North Carolina Center for Health & Wellness, which focuses on childhood obesity, workplace wellness and healthy aging. Previously, she taught nutrition at Cornell University and Ithaca College. She is also senior nutrition scientist for the Physicians Comm..”

Milk is also linked to type 1 (juvenile-onset) diabetes and other serious conditions. Happily, there are many other good sources of calcium that can be found in a plant-based diet…”

ibandronate, Boniva medicinenet.com
“DRUG CLASS AND MECHANISM: Ibandronate is an oral and intravenous drug that is used for treating osteoporosis. It is a member of the bisphosphonate class of drugs which includes etidronate (Didronel), pamidronate (Aredia), risedronate (Actonel), and tiludronate (Skelid). Bone is in a constant state of remodeling. New bone is laid down by cells called osteoblasts while old bone is removed by cells called osteoclasts. Bisphosphonates strengthen bone by inhibiting bone removal (resorption) by osteoclasts. After menopause, there is an increased rate of bone loss leading to osteoporosis, and ibandronate has been shown to increase bone density and decrease fractures of bones. FDA approved ibandronate in May 2003. ..”

The Truth About Your Osteopenia Treatment saveourbones.com
“…For example, bone health expert Steve Cummings, MD, a professor at the San Francisco School of Medicine (University of California), says that there was neither real medical basis for developing a unique term such as “Osteopenia” nor to choosing the arbitrary T-score number for its diagnosis. He comments that “Osteopenia is not a disease, does not indicate a high risk of fracture in the next five to ten years, and is really almost a variant of normal. What I tell women in their 50s is that having Osteopenia means their bones are different than those of a 25-year-old and I note that there are probably many things about them that differ from when they were 25”. This is truly a breath of fresh air and gives me hope for the future!..

Linda Creech November 1, 2015, 6:09 pm-“I have only used it twice. But I have had red rashes and some like water blisters come all over my legs. Also, I have noticed pain in my arm muscles and keeps me up at nights. It really scares me and I am determined that I am not going to take it anymore. I will just start taking Vitamin D and maybe drinking mild more. I am 65 and it may be too late, but it is my body and to tell the truth doctors and pharmecutical plants are all in it together. I know it will tick my doctor off but it’s my body and I do believe God will take care of me.”

Lisa October 13, 2015, 6:48 pm “My daughter is only 26 and has severe osteoporosis with a compression fracture already. Rheumatologist started her on boniva iv. She had first dose yesterday. Today she has severe muscle and bone pain, headache with severe neck pain. Fever. We questioned that she is not post menopausal , but dr assured us it’s ok
I do not think we will dose again.

Kathy June 9, 2015, 8:03 pm-“I was just diagnosed with osteoperosis and before my Doc even called me my drugstore called me to let me know that a RX was filled and ready for pick-up. Well I went and got it and the pharmacist started telling me about how to take this drug. Well when I got to work I read the pamphlet and looked it up on line. I do not like the side effects at all!! I’m scared to death to take this crap. Mine is the generic for Fosimax. But looks like it’s all the same stuff with all of the dangers that go with it. What is one to do?

Many individuals on the medication endure these side effects, because they only have to suffer through them once a month. In addition to unpleasant side-effects, bisphosphonates have come under scrutiny because of reported cases of typical fractures of the femur (thigh bone) and jaw…”
