Managing Osteoperosis Without MedicationOsteoperosis Prevention

If you have been diagnosed with osteoporosis, you should know that you can strengthen your bones naturally, without medicinal intervention.  You may be afraid or feel helpless about what to do about your osteoperosis. After all, we hear repeatedly how bone loss is inevitable and once it starts, it only gets worse with menopause and post-menopausal years.

But there are answers that do not involve medication, including a comprehensive natural approach with top-quality nutrients, diet and lifestyle changes, you can do everything your body needs to heal and maintain strong bones , no matter what your age or the amount of bone loss you are suffering.

You can protect against Osteoporosis and Bone Loss without Medication

Throughout your entire lifetime, you may have naturally been losing bone and building it back. However, for most women, there comes a point, usually around perimenopause or menopause, when most women start losing more bone than they can replace.

Years of scientific research and experience show that a natural approach is extremely effective in the building of stronger bones. The Surgeon General of the United States recommends prevention before medication takes over for nutrition, physical activity and fall prevention as the initial step to protect bone health. In the Surgeon General’s guidelines, the second step is to assess and treat the underlying causes of any bone health issues.

The very last step suggested is the use of bone medication. Unfortunately, many women are led to believe they should start with medication. However, the truth is, while taking one pill may sound easy enough, it may not guarantee improvement to bone health and may cause serious side effects.

The benefits of improving your diet and changing your lifestyle are not limited to bone health and preventing osteoporosis alone. Natural approaches to building bone will benefit your entire body in extraordinary ways. Healthy bones provide your whole body with more energy, strength, flexibility and vitality. And these natural measures in strong bone health are linked with better overall health. For example, by optimizing your vitamin D status (found in your bones) you will help protect yourself from a broad range of diseases, including 15 types of cancer, auto-immune disease, diabetes, heart disease and depression.

Weight-bearing exercise puts stress on bones, and bone tissue reacts by getting stronger and denser, fending off osteoporotic processes. Extra vitamin D and calcium top the list of dietary recommendations.  Exercise is another bone-building element that benefits your entire body.  With exercise come weight loss and muscle accumulation, and overall benefit to your health.

Eating an alkaline or basic diet can improve health on several levels as well. An alkaline diet preserves not only bone, but also muscle, and sets the milieu for overall optimal biochemical functioning, improved and lasting energy, and overall enhanced wellness.
