The Bone Health Revolution
by Vivian Goldschmidt
Recently my good pal Chris referred to as to say her mother’s newest Bone scan revealed fairly a little bit of bone loss since her final take a look at and the doc wished to place her on osteoporosis meds.
This made Chris uncomfortable and she or he referred to as to ask what, if something I knew about these medication, their efficacy, unwanted side effects and attainable options. My restricted analysis after my very own prognosis of osteopenia a couple of years ago—a non-disease created to promote extra medication I’m convinced—led me to consider that the medication weren’t a good selection and that there have been many issues to do first to strengthen bones naturally.
I fumbled by way of a few of that I knew however instructed Chris I’d get again to her after getting my analysis up to date and collectively. Meanwhile she discovered this month’s e book.
The writer Vivian Goldschmidt, has written a e book I want I’d penned.
Chris was appropriate, the e book is a gold mine of the most recent data on osteoporosis, osteopenia, and the medication massive Pharma would have us take to decelerate this «illness». Dirty little secret—osteoporosis is just not a illness in any respect merely a perform of ageing. It is just not inevitable and doesn’t want harmful medication to forestall, reverse or gradual it down. It will be slowed and reversed utilizing food regimen, dietary supplements, and train.
Did you already know that the imply in opposition to which our center aged bones are in contrast for his or her «well being» is 20 — 29 12 months outdated ladies? As Vivian requested, «Are ladies anticipated to maintain their bone density unchanged as they get older?» How can we ever hope to have a «regular» bone density rating as in comparison with ladies who’re at their peak of bone well being?
Not to say that bone density—the attribute of our bones being examined for—is not the very best indicator of wholesome bones, bone flexibility and energy is.
Bone loss related to ageing is regular, bone energy and resilience is what we should always work in direction of.
Here are some bullet factors Vivian covers intimately in her e book:
# Osteoporosis is just not a illness however really it is the physique attempting to appropriate an imbalance. And there’s one easy factor you are able to do to appropriate this imbalance.
# Osteoporosis is just not inevitable. Anyone can simply forestall and reverse it with out taking medication. Actually, a 2006 report by the Mayo Clinic says that over 37% of ladies older than 50 do not meet the true standards of Osteoporosis and are wrongfully recognized! Are you one in all them?
# The lively ingredient in prescription Osteoporosis medication (Fosamax, Actonel, Boniva) is a bisphosphonate. That’s only a fancy identify for a typical ingredient utilized in laundry detergents, fertilizers, and industrial lubricants. Would you place these in your physique?
This is just not concern mongering neither is it an anti-pharmaceutical rant. It is complete analysis offered in lay particular person’s language. Vivian began on this quest when she was recognized was osteoporosis some years in the past and given Fosamax by her physician. Her science background-she has a level in diet from New York University—and scientist’s curiosity drove her to analysis this so referred to as illness and the «cures» being given liberally by many well-meaning docs.
What she discovered was stunning and she or he felt she needed to write about it and assist different ladies keep away from the possibly life threatening—at the very least high quality of life damaging—side results of Big Pharma’s reply to this «drawback.
«According to a latest article by Consumer Affairs (February 2007), Merck, the maker of Fosamax, has put apart $48 million to arrange a protection fund for lawsuits associated to the debilitating side-effects of Fosamax. Does Merck know one thing that most people would not?
Caveat: Vivian doesn’t say that medication like Fosamax, Actonel and Boniva don’t harden bones. They do; it is their elements, their unwanted side effects, and what we do not know that encourages us to search for options. And what we do not but know is whether or not the motion of those bone constructing medication will really enhance density however restrict or forestall new bone formation which is extra versatile and due to this fact much less vulnerable to fracture than outdated brittle bones.
If you’ve gotten been recognized with both osteoporosis or osteopenia I encourage you to purchase the e book and check out pure options earlier than a drug protacol. I am unable to suggest this e book sufficient.
