When you are considering how to prevent and treat Osteoporosis, keep in mind that there are no mainstream Rx drugs that you need to successfully prevent and reverse this condition. RX drugs such as Boniva, Fosamax and Actonel and even injectable forms are not necessary on my program. Bisphosphonates like Boniva essentially nearly kill your bone to improve the DEXA scan result which is essentially measuring the shadow a bone makes with an X-ray. This shadow density does not mean a bone is strong and healthy.
An increasingly more prevalent side effect is Mandibular Necrosis; death of the jaw bone! It kills the jaw bone because it poisons the Osteoclasts that cut away old bone so your bones can no longer remodel themselves. Remodeling means the body naturally removes old brittle bone and replaces it with new bone so you are not walking around on brittle old bones. This can cause another horrific side effect: atypical femoral fractures which is when a woman is just walking and both of her femurs break all the way through at the top of her thigh! Yes, often they both break together. This break occurs in a spot that the femur almost never breaks at due to the bone being nearly dead.
My approach uses nutrients, diet, and hormone compounding, and my patients DEXA scans show recurring improvement with repeat testing. Many patients are eventually no longer osteoporotic after years of this program.
