Osteoporosis MYTHS exposed and a science-based solution revealed

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

osteoporosis(NaturalHealth365) The numbers are truly staggering.  In fact, worldwide, a fracture – due to osteoporosis – is estimated to occur every 3 seconds and a vertebral fracture every 22 seconds!

Conventionally speaking, many doctors tend to say that osteoporosis is ‘largely genetic;’ yet, they admit that risk factors include smoking, obesity and lack of physical activity. This obvious contradiction in thinking shows us how confused Western medicine is about this condition.

To be perfectly clear: toxic drugs will never cure any chronic disease and osteoporosis can certainly be avoided with the right lifestyle decisions.  My goal, today, is to give you some good ‘food for thought,’ so you can make an informed decision about your own bone health.

Step one: What really causes osteoporosis?

The answer is clear and, hopefully, this information will serve as a wake-up call for conventionally-trained physicians by offering a better way to help patients fully recover from life-threatening conditions like, osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease and even cancer.

This is not meant to judge anyone eating animal or processed foods: But, the “standard American diet” (SAD) involves too much (drug-laced) animal protein; processed grains – in the form of bread and pasta plus an overabundance of white sugar and artificial sweeteners.

This toxic sludge of ingredients place too much stress on the immune system, kidney function and the bloodstream.  Eventually, as the body becomes more and more acidic, the risk of chronic disease goes way up and osteoporosis most certainly can be one of those results.

Do NOT ignore the health dangers linked to toxic indoor air.  These chemicals - the 'off-gassing' of paints, mattresses, carpets and other home/office building materials - increase your risk of headaches, dementia, heart disease and cancer.

When you think about it: wouldn’t it be easier for doctors to just tell people the real cause of their dis-ease?  Simply put, eating too many acid-forming foods will trigger a host of serious health problems like fatigue, depression and the de-mineralization of bones.

Unfortunately, too many physicians have been brainwashed into believing that drugs “treat” disease – when, in fact, they merely add to the toxic burden and never solve health problems.

Don’t be fooled by deceptive bone health advice

By now, I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase “milk does the body good.”  Another popular T.V./magazine ad (in the past) frequently promoted the suggestive question, “Got Milk?”  These multi-million dollar marketing campaigns were not based on good science.  But, these ads helped to make the purchase of conventional milk brands a popular decision for millions of people.

But, here’s the $64,000 question: if osteoporosis could be avoided by simply consuming lots of calcium-rich foods and beverages – why does the United States population suffer greatly from this disease?  Americans certainly consume lots of calcium in foods (and supplements!).

So, once and for all, let’s fully expose a couple myths…

Myth #1: And, this is a myth of epic proportions: that a lack of calcium (in the bones) is somehow linked to a lack of calcium in the bloodstream or diet.  This is completely false and, yes, good science backs up this statement.

Myth #2: Does your doctor believe that calcium supplements will help prevent bone fractures?

Sadly, there is little scientific data to suggest that calcium supplementation (alone) can reduce the risk of fractures.  In fact, bone density does not equal stronger bones.

In truth, many other nutrients are necessary to maintain healthy bones like, vitamin C, D3, K2 and boron.

If you’re taking calcium supplements, to ‘improve your bone density score’, you may want to read this:

According to Thomas E. Levy, MD, JD, taking a calcium supplement is like putting a ‘fresh coat of paint on a rotten fence.’  You may get a “better score” on a bone density test – but you will not reduce your risk of weakened bones or hip fractures.

In addition, according to Dr. Levy, “you are 30% more likely to have a heart attack and up to 20% more likely to have a stroke if you take an extra 500 mg of calcium or more per day.”

If you or someone you know is suffering with osteoporosis – be sure to read this interesting article about how sugar consumption is linked to bone health issues.

My final point is simple: you can strengthen your bones naturally.  And, while Western medicine is great at diagnosing disease condition – they do a poor job (at best) at curing any chronic health issue.

For best results: avoid toxic fats and conventional dairy products; focus on an “anti-inflammatory diet” – with plenty of fresh (organic) fruits and vegetables; select high-quality, nutritional supplements to correct nutritional deficiencies; exercise on a regular basis; and be sure to work with a truly qualified healthcare provider to help guide you in the right direction.
