6 Natural Remedies To Try If You Have Osteoporosis

old-woman-knee-pain

 

Affecting any person of any gender, osteoporosis is a condition that results in reduced bone density or bone fragility. Literally meaning “porous bones,” Osteoporosis primarily occurs in post-menopausal women because of the sudden decrease in protective estrogen levels. The condition makes your bones like sponges and can lead to frequent bone fractures. While osteoporosis doesn’t make people fall, people with osteoporosis have a higher risk of breaking a bone if they do fall because of the increased bone fragility.

 

What Causes Osteoporosis?

There isn’t a single cause of osteoporosis; rather, several factors are believed to contribute to the development of the condition. One can develop osteoporosis if there is a familial history of the condition, if bone structure is smaller than normal, or, and most commonly, about 5 years after menopause when estrogen levels have dropped. Our bones are not static. There is a constant turnover process that helps replace the old and damaged bones. Increased age can lead to a higher bone breakdown rate and lower bone-building rate. This causes the bones to weaken and can lead to osteoporosis. Causes are listed below:

  • Medical Conditions (Anorexia, Bulimia, or Orthorexia)
  • Tobacco Smoking
  • Excessive Alcohol Consumption
  • Reduced Calcium, Magnesium, and Vitamin D Levels
  • Decreased Estrogen Levels (in post-menopausal women)
  • Certain Medications (thyroid hormone replacement, antidepressants, or some antacids, among others)
  • Inactivity or Immobility
  • Bone Fracture History

 

Natural Remedies

Avoid Salt:

It’s important to avoid salt because salt causes your body to lose calcium and can lead to bone loss. Additionally, overconsumption of salt can lead to hypertension, high cholesterol, or put you at risk for developing heart disease.

 

Eat An Alkaline Diet:

Eating an alkaline diet can help keep your bones strong. When there are too many acidic foods in the body, it has to borrow alkalizing minerals from the bones to help balance its pH level. Eating raw fruits and vegetables can help you re-establish your body’s natural pH level.

 

Try Acupuncture:

Acupuncture can be a beneficial treatment for osteoporosis because it naturally relaxes the body and straightens out a person’s Chi. While studies are still being conducted, combining herbal treatments with acupuncture is showing positive results.

 

Eat Magnesium & Calcium Rich Foods:

Magnesium and calcium are two important minerals that are essential for proper bone health. Having a diet rich in both of these can contribute to healthier bones. You don’t have to eat meat or dairy to get these minerals. You can eat dark leafy greens, bananas, avocados, oranges, grapefruit, cabbage, and broccoli, among many others, to incorporate more magnesium and calcium in your diet.

 

Boost Your Estrogen:

If you are a post-menopausal woman, there are herbs you can consume that help boost estrogen levels. Because decreased estrogen levels can lead to osteoporosis, this can be a beneficial, natural remedy. Black cohosh helps boost phytoestrogens and can contribute to bone health. While red clover hasn’t been proven to help bone health, it has many estrogen compounds, and estrogen helps protect bones.

 

Decrease Stress:

It’s a good idea to decrease stress because cortisol, the body’s main stress hormone, is detrimental to bone health. You can get massages, receive acupuncture treatments, meditate, exercise, and ensure proper sleeping habits to help decrease your stress levels.

    Q: I was online searching for some natural treatments for hair growth in Black Men when I came across your article. I must say that I believe it was so on point that I decided not to look any further. I'm 44 years of age and started noticing my hair thinning when about 12 years ago. I was one of those that you wrote about in your article chasing a lifestyle that is no longer an interest to me. I did fall into some bad habits that were not good for my health off and on over the past 15 years or so more off than on. My body type I would describe as athletic. I'm tone, and strong when I exercise regularly. I'm about 150lbs @ 5'11". My diet is mostly vegetables but from time to time I feel I have to eat fish or chicken. Not necessarily prepared in the healthiest way I'm sure. I just got out of one of my "on" spells so to speak. Meaning the drinking of beer and cigarettes. I've been smoking and drinking beer now since September 2006 after not having done anything but live healthy for six years before that. As soon as my wife and I came back to the states and started working and runnign again these old destructive habits appeared again in my life. I only blame myself though. Right now my hair and skin suffer from the chemical poisoning from the habits that I just mentioned. I am prepared to take your advice about righteous living to heart and start fresh again. Is there a mild remedy that can work with me to stimulate the re-growth of my hair in the spots where it is balding in that classic balding pattern? I am generally very healthy when I doing right and even now rarely get sick. But my sickness manifest in stress and bad habits to num the pain of having to live this way when don't really want to. I quit the job that I've been working for the past 4 years for that reason and have been blessed to have some time not to grind everyday chasing after money. Now is a crucial time of healing for me, and I must take full advantage of the time. Moderation is in order for whatever you can suggest for me in the way of herbal remedies. I am sure that you can prescribe a simple overall regiment for my overall health based on what I have shared with you with an emphasis on the hair and skin. Again, thank you for writing the article. Call or write. The sooner the better.......Thank You!!

    A:

    I would say first detox with the FULL BODY DETOX and get your diet right CONSISTENTLY! Constantly clean your temple! This is key! Next, perform the TOTAL MALE CLEANSE. After this, do a daily regimen of HAIR SKIN NAILS FORMULA, ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD, KHEMETIAN GOLD, and MSM SULFUR. Forgive yourself of past self-inflicted harm! Stop worrying about your hair loss. Start visualizing your hair growing back. If you can see it, you will achieve it! The mind is all and problems and remedies begin in the mind! BTW: we offer phone consultations if you're interested.

    Q: I have been reading a lot lately on HCG levels and people who have acquired HCG injections to lose weight at a fast rate of speed. Ultimately, if I understand correctly, HCG is a fertility booster. Would the fertility kit your company produces have the same effect, and actually raise the HCG levels of a person's chemistry? I would much prefer to treat my body 100% organically/herbally. I have highly mixed emotions about allowing "doctors" to inject something into my body, if there is an alternative.

    A:

    Our Fertility Kit is 100% organic (natural) and does not only work on one level (i.e. HCG), but all hormonal levels in addition to balancing, strengthening, and toning the hormonal system. All hormones are raised to their necessary level with our fertility kit and regimen.

    It is unnatural to inject anything into the human body. It's a disrespect to the body which is perfectly qualified to do what it was designed to do if you just give the body what it needs.

    Follow your emotions (or gut instinct) about doctors and injection. Dherbs offers a safe and sane alternative. Give it a try! GO NATURAL!

    Take the Female Health tea along with the kit to enhance its effect and the chances of conception.
