Osteoporosis

According to the National Osteoporosis Foundation, osteoporosis causes 1.5 million fractures in general, over 300,000 hip fractures, over 700,000 vertebral fractures, and over 250,000 wrist fractures each year in the United States. Osteoporosis accounts for 70% of all fractures of people over 45 years of age in the U.S.

Causes and Risk Factors

Osteoporosis is considered a degenerative disease that causes bones to become weak or brittle. It’s a natural occurrence with aging, when bone loss outpaces bone renewal.

There are two types of risk factors associated with osteoporosis: changeable and unchangeable.

Unchangeable risk factors are:

  • Gender-women are at higher risk of developing osteoporosis than men
  • Age-the older you get, the greater the risk
  • Ethnicity-Caucasians tend to experience osteoporosis more frequently
  • Family history
  • Body frame-petite people tend to experience osteoporosis more often than people with medium or large frames
  • Early menopause-women who go through early menopause are at higher risk

Changeable risk factors are:

  • Hormone levels-imbalanced hormones or other glandular problems can contribute to the development of osteoporosis
  • Thyroid problems-too much thyroid hormone can accelerate bone loss
  • Dietary imbalance such as too little calcium in the diet, eating disorders or weight-loss surgery
  • Steroids or other medications that leech calcium from the bones
  • Lifestyle-people who sit too much are at higher risk
  • Alcohol abuse
  • Tobacco use

Symptoms

Common symptoms of osteoporosis are:

  • Back pain
  • Frequent bone factures
  • Bone fractures that happen too easily
  • Collapsed vertebrae
  • Loss of height
  • Stooped posture

Healing Options

Consume mostly organic, raw, live foods – fruits and vegetables, but especially green leafy cruciferous vegetables. Green foods (broccoli, parsley, spinach, alfalfa, dandelion, etc.) are usually high in organic calcium and usually contain more Vitamin C than some citrus fruits.

Drink plenty of vegetable juice daily as vegetable juice is alkalizing and many vegetables contain moderate to high amounts of calcium and thus are great for reversing bone density conditions such as osteoporosis.

Eliminate consumption of commercial brands of orange juice, i.e. Minute Maid, Sunkist, Florida Natural, etc. Fresh squeezed (which may cost more) is best. An orange is acidic in nature, but it is alkaline! Oranges, limes, and lemons are acidic in nature, but are not acid forming.

Eliminate consumption of antacids. Use herbs and/or herbal products to neutralize acid without any adverse side effects. Remember that your green foods (including herbs) are very alkalizing, too.

Great calcium-providing herbs include Comfrey root and leaves, Moringa (whole plant), Oat straw, Horsetail, Alfalfa and Red Raspberry Leaf to name a few.

When you bathe or soak, add 1-2 boxes (26-52 ounces) of sea salt to the bath water as sea salt makes bath water alkaline and in turn this helps the overall health and wellbeing of the bones. It also helps to dissolve hardened lactic acid, which is responsible for stiffness in the body.

Dietary Intervention

The human body requires organic nutrition. The body can only assimilate and absorb that which is organic. That’s why plants are the best source of nutrition for human beings, including calcium. It’s a mistake to rely only on processed foods and dairy products as sources of nutritional calcium.

Again, the right kind of calcium is CALCIUM PHOSPHATE (derived from plant sources) and not calcium carbonate, calcium lactate, calcium citrate, or calcium gluconate.

Consuming the right kind of nutrients (i.e. nutrients that the body can absorb and assimilate, not just digest) is very important. You must make sure you’re getting organic nutrients.

    Q: I am in need of cleansing my body and weight removal! (Removal and not loss because I don't want to find it again)! I need to remove about 80 pounds of unhealthy weight from my body and would like to do so in a natural way. I looked at both your Female Cleanse and the Full Body Cleanse, but don't know which is a better option for me to follow right now? I eat a lot of organic foods, I juice (some) but need to increase my water intake (A LOT). I don't drink much soda at all and when I do it is organic carbonated lemonade. I realize carbonated drinks are not good for us and limit how much I drink. My body lets me know when I have eaten something that is not good for me by causing my hands and feet to swell. To reduce this I drink water. I am allergic to wheat and try to stay away from it as much as possible. I have few ailments and have started working out again (cardio and weight training). I also looked at your weight loss products, but thought I should maybe detox first. What do you think? Any assistance you can offer on your products and which ones I should take is of great appreciation.

    A: The best thing for you is the Full Body Cleanse. The Full Body Cleanse will allow you to remove unwanted weight, while also optimizing your entier body so that you can maintain that weight and live a healthier lifestyle.

    Q: Is it possible that the Headache and Pain formula that my mother has currently been on since June of this year could be causing her to have internal bleeding. She is peeing brown at times. Her blood work came back fine. Her kidney are functioning normally. I wonder if there is something that I am giving her to cause this. Currently she is on your Headache and Pain formula, Calcium Formula, Nerves formula, Joint formula, MSM formula, and CNS formula. Everything is normal except for the brown looking urine she has developed for over a month now and it occurs in the morning. Do you know what could be causing this? Am I giving her too many herbs at one time? Please let me know your thoughts. Thank you, Dherbs.com. I appreciate it.

    A:

    No, not at all! Herbs don't cause problems. They help heal them! The morning piss is usually the most toxic one, releasing the toxins and poisons that have been broken down at night during sleep. This is normal and is a sign her body is normalizing itself. There's nothing to worry about. There never is! Her body is healing itself!

    Q: Dasani water, if I remember correctly, was banned from the U.K. It contains salt as well as potassium chloride. Essentia contains calcium chloride, as well as sodium bicarbonate, magnesium sulfate, dipotassium phosphate. Are all the ingredients in Essentia safe?

    Q: I am 7 months pregnant with just a few symptoms (sciatica, low blood pressure, and change in appetite). So far, I have been doing pretty well. I take your pre-natal and calcium herbs. My fear is that I have no desire to eat vegetables. I only want fruit. Meat turns my stomach so I stay clear of it. I have just started gaining weight (3 pounds). What do you advise regarding the vegetables, low blood pressure, and sciatica?

    A:

    In place of vegetables try taking 6 capsules of our ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD formula. For sciatica, try our NERVES FORMULA (also get massage and see a chiropractic). For low blood pressure, take CARDIO-VASCULAR FORMULA. For change in appetite, just go with the flow. Trust your body's natural inclination to change. You'll be fine. If you feel it's necessary, please schedule a consultation.

    Q: Can I take the Moringa Formula instead of the Vitamin C formula, and still get the necessary nutrients that my body needs from Vitamin C? My daily regime will goes as follows: Electric Green Combo, Iodine, and Moringa Formula or/and Vitamin C based on your answer. Thanks.

    A:

    You sure can! Ounce per ounce it contains 6 to 7 times the amount of Vitamin C in orange juice. Although moringa will provide you with a plethra of vitamins and nutrients, you still must eat foods that also bring you these nutrients. Supplements are just that, something added to help complete a diet or dietary needs.
