"The first week I started the regime the change was amazing. My energy returned, my skin glowed, the aches and pains and heat (inflammation) in my joints went away (almost all), the gastric reflux stopped. People commented on the change in me. I was amazed at how different and positive I felt. So thank you so much." Susie, Plymouth

"I can't speak highly enough of that man, he changed my life". Doreen, Worcester 

 

Osteoporosis 

Bone is a dynamic tissue which is continuously being remodelled. Old and dead bone is first removed by specialist cells, the osteoclasts and new bone is then laid down by the osteoblasts. 
Osteoporosis is the label given to bone that shows to be "thin" on x-ray and it is assumed that bone loss bone loss or resorption is taking place faster than repair.
Repair of bone needs many important factors such as amino acids and vitamins to make the lattice upon which bone is laid down and, minerals which add strength to the lattice through calcification.

Osteoporosis is the typical result of diet and lifestyle especially lack of exercise. In fact never has the saying "use it or lose it" been more apt than in osteoporosis.
Bone health is dependent upon placing the skeleton, particularly the hip and thigh bones, under regular tension. It is through realignment of the lattice and bone while walking and impact exercise such as jogging, dancing and trampolining that encourage the laying down of new bone and prevention as well as the first line treatment of osteoporosis.

Factors which adversely affect the balance in bone health include food allergy/intolerance, pathogenic organisms (bacteria, viruses, fungus/Candida and parasites), toxins such as metals (arsenic, cadmium, lead, mercury etc), chemicals (pesticides, herbicides, preservatives etc), radiation (DECT phones, mobiles and masts, air travel etc), drugs (NSAIDs, steroids etc), and not forgetting malabsorption of essential nutrients such as amino acids, vitamins, minerals and especially fatty acids of EPA and DHA. Of course it is taken for granted that smoking and excess alcohol would impact badly on bone health.

Factors which encourage bone health and repair, apart from exercise, include
amino acids, vitamins, minerals and especially the omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, as well as probiotics, soluble and insoluble fibre from fruits, vegetables and whole grains, not forgetting adequate amounts of water, a regular daily exercise regime and sunlight, when possible.

HRT has not been shown to be of any help in osteoporosis, neither has calcium supplementation on its own as a balance of vitamins and minerals is far more important.
