Osteoporosis or Osteopenia (Loss of Bone Density). OsteoStrong plus Strontium (both by EuroPharma). This combination of products is outstanding for building bone density. The latter contains the mineral strontium, which studies show is 170% more effective than the drug Fosamax for building strong bones — and a whole lot safer and more affordable. OsteoStrong contains bone-builders like vitamin D, calcium, vitamin K, and magnesium.
One caveat: strontium may be better absorbed when it's taken apart from calcium, so some people prefer taking strontium-free OsteoStrong (Europharma) at bedtime, along with 340 to 680 mg of strontium in the morning. Also, don't take calcium-containing products within 2 hours of taking thyroid medication.
High Cholesterol. Chol-Less (Nutri Elements). This natural mix of cholesterol-lowering herbs is excellent for optimizing cholesterol levels. Take 3 capsules daily, and give it 6 weeks to take effect. You can take it with a cholesterol-lowering drug statin drug like Mevacor. And if you do take a statin (which can severely flare fibromyalgia), I strongly recommend you take 200 to 400 mg a day of coenzyme Q10, which helps protect muscles.
Heartburn, Indigestion or Refux. CompleteGest Digestive Enzymes (Enzymatic Therapy). This product is an excellent addition to a regimen to treat and resolve heartburn. Take 2 capsules with every meal to help digest your food properly. Other good techniques include: Sip warm liquids with meals instead of drinking cold water (digestive enzymes work poorly at cold temperatures). Take a minute to relax before eating. Chew your food well. Eliminate or minimize coffee (including decaf), aspirin and/or alcohol — all of which can worsen heartburn and indigestion.
There are several other good natural products for heartburn and indigestion:
• Mastic Gum (Allergy Research Group). Take 2, 500 mg capsules 2 times a day for 2 months, then as needed.
• Advanced Heartburn Relief (Europharma). It contains limonene, which can knock out infections that cause indigestion.
• Gut Soothe (DGL Licorice) (EuroPharma). This helps heal your stomach.
