Natural Therapies for Osteoporosis

By David Brownstein, M.D.   |   Monday, 29 Apr 2013 09:31 AM

Question: What do you recommend for those of us with osteoporosis?

Dr. Brownstein's Answer:

Osteoporosis is a disease in which bones become fragile and more likely to break. One of the most commonly used treatments for this condition is a class of drugs called bisphosphonates.

In fact, bisphosphonates are some of the most prescribed of all medications in the United States. But the Big Pharma Cartel has yet to prove that these medications lower long-term fracture risk. These medications poison a crucial part of the normal bone cycle of removing injured and old bone and replacing it with healthy new bone.

If you have osteoporosis, it is important to support bone metabolism by supporting its
biochemistry. Bisphosphonate medications poison bone biochemistry.

What can you do to support bone biochemistry? It is important to eat a healthy diet free of refined foods and drink adequate amounts of water to prevent dehydration. Ensuring adequate intake of vitamins D and K is also a must.

Mineral support is very helpful for providing the bones with the raw materials it needs to optimize bone health. Magnesium, boron, calcium, copper, manganese, and strontium are all minerals that help strengthen bones.

Vitamins C, D, K2, B1, B2, B3, B6, and B12 are also needed for optimal bone health. I (along with my partners) have created a supplement to aid bone metabolism. It is called
Osteo-Elite and has been very effective.
