Osteoporosis Drugs Are Not Effective

Posted on February 2, 2010 | Filed Under Articles

Dr. Michael Murray explains how osteoporosis drugs can cause esophageal cancer and even bone and joint problems down the road. He discusses healthy alternatives to these drugs. He also discusses various exercises that can assist with bone health.

Building A Foundation For Bone Health

Traditionally, diets and supplements high in calcium, magnesium and vitamin D have been recommended for people with osteoporosis or weakening bones. These three nutrients are important for good bone density and lasting bone health. Without an adequate dietary source of calcium the body will take calcium from bone to support higher-priority body systems like circulation and nervous systems.

Calcium also helps maintain proper pH balance. An internal environment that is too acidic from a high acid-forming diet will cause calcium to be leached from bone tissue to restore an alkaline balance.

In order for calcium to find its way into bone tissue it requires two important nutrients sadly missing from the modern diet: magnesium and vitamin D. Magnesium produces calcitonin which draws calcium out of soft tissue and into bone tissue. Vitamin D is essential for calcium absorption and requires magnesium to convert it into its most active form.

Calcium, magnesium and vitamin D are the foundational nutrients for long-term bone health. However, be cautioned. Studies have shown that although calcium does support the slowing of bone loss, on it’s own it has not been able to reverse or prevent osteoporosis. In fact, individuals without a calcium deficiency have still developed osteoporosis. For a truly healthy skeletal system, or if you need to increase bone density or reverse bone loss, vitamins and minerals are important, but only the beginning.
Beyond Vitamins And Minerals

Greens: Scientists were able to improve bone health by giving osteoporosis patients a quality green drink supplement similar in composition to Nature’s Sunshine superfood green drink GreenZone. The 36 ingredients in GreenZone work synergistically to deliver an array of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, fats, amino acids and chlorophyll. Green drinks normalize acid-to-alkaline ratio in the body, creating a healthy environment for bone building and better health in general. Nature’s Sunshine Products: GreenZone and Liquid Chlorophyll

Balance your body’s pH: A diet high in acidic foods will cause rapid mineral loss from bone and eventually weaken bone structures. All processed foods, caffeine, alcohol, sodas and cigarettes should be avoided. Red meats should be grass fed (not grain) and raised organic to produce a less acidic product. Adding a green drink or taking calcium/magnesium supplements with a meal can also reduce its acidity. Nature’s Sunshine Products: Liquid Chlorophyll, GreenZone, Calcium/Magnesium with Vit. D

Vitamin K2: Researchers have found that vitamin K2 “ignites’ proteins to escort calcium into bone and out of soft tissue. Both calcium and vitamin D3 are dependent on vitamin K2 for bone formation. Nature’s Sunshine Products: Vitamin K2 is not available for over-the-counter sale in Canada. Available sources include leafy green vegetables, chlorophyll-rich green drinks such as GreenZone and Liquid Chlorophyll.

Omega 3 fatty acids: Inflammation causes several disease states, one of which is osteoporosis. Omega 3 fatty acids reduce inflammation. Studies showed that higher levels of omega 3 increase bone mineral density in hips and spine – results were publsihed in the American Journal of Clinical Research, 2004. Other research has showed that omega 3 fatty acids reduced overall inflammation and increased bone- mineral density in people with arthritis. Nature’s Sunshine Products: Super Omega 3 and Super Oil.
Lecithin: Missing from the modern-day, low fat, processed food diet, Lecithin has emerged as a super nutrient in both memory retention and bone building. Nature’s Sunshine Products: Lecithin Capsules

Silicon: An important mineral for the repair and growth of bone tissue. Research has shown that silicon deficiencies are characterized by abnormalities in tendons, ligaments and bone structures. Silicon is required for the proper functioning of an enzyme necessary for the formation of collagen in bone. One of the most abundant sources of this mineral is the herb horsetail. Nature’s Sunshine Products: HSN-W Combination

Natural Growth Factors: Bovine colostrum has been used as a powerful elixir of health, usually reserved only for royalty. Today, compounds found only in colostrum are being heavily researched in the battle against numerous diseases, including osteoporosis. Colostrum’s growth factors have been used to stimulate an increase in bone density and bone tissue repair and maintenance. Nature’s Sunshine Products: Colostrum Capsules

Bones and Protein: Contrary to popular belief protein is not detrimental to bone health. Vitamins D, K and calcium cannot produce healthy bone mineraliztion without adequate protein. Protein is a major building block of new bone. Caution: despite protein’s benefits, diets high in acid-forming animal protein and grains can accelerate bone breakdown. However, high protein diets are fine when balanced with alkaline-producing fruits and vegetables, calcium supplements and green drinks. Nature’s Sunshine Products: Nutri- Burn
