Simple Ways to Protect Yourself from the Risks of Osteoporosis
Date:5/24/2013

Santa Monica, CA (PRWEB) May 24, 2013

May is National Osteoporosis Awareness and Prevention Month. Osteoporosis is a disease that weakens the bones resulting in an increased risk of fracture. Dr. Stuart H. Garber, D.C., Ph.D., explains “Today osteoporosis affects more than 10 million Americans while another 18 million suffer from low bone density, placing them at increased risk for the disease. Although most commonly thought of as a “woman’s disease,” one in every five diagnosed with osteoporosis is a man. “

Fractures of the hip, vertebra or wrist are the most common complication. In fact, according to the National Osteoporosis Foundation, half of all women over the age of 50 and one in four men will break a bone because of osteoporosis.

In the elderly, however, a fracture can be more serious. Becoming bed ridden as a result of a broken hip, for example, can lead to severe complications and in many cases death.

Achieving and maintaining optimum bone health is not difficult when you follow a proper diet. Good nutrition can help insure better bone health and protect you from the risks of osteoporosis. By “good nutrition” we mean both what we consume, absorb and assimilate, as well as what to avoid or limit.

Calcium is essential to normal bone formation. The majority of calcium in our bodies (99%, in fact) is found in our bones and teeth. Since our bodies are not able to produce new calcium, it is vital to consume calcium-rich foods every day.

For most people the best source of calcium are non-dairy products with green leafy vegetables such as arugula, kale, collard greens, and spinach at the top of the list. These are also great sources of vitamin K, another key nutrient for bone health.

Vitamin D is an essential vitamin required for the proper absorption of calcium and can be found in fish oils, fatty fish and certain mushrooms. Your body also makes Vitamin D when your skin is exposed to the sun. If necessary, Vitamin D and calcium can also be consumed as a supplement.

Good nutrition also means avoiding foods that can negatively affect bone health. Excessive amounts of alcohol, coffee and other caffeinated drinks such as tea and soft drinks may interfere with calcium absorption, resulting in bone loss. As with anything moderation is the key.

Dr. Garber’s Natural Solutions for Bone Strength enhances the assimilation of calcium and other minerals into the bone. Daily use can support the cells that build new bone and the cells that break down and remove old bone. The unique biotherapy formula can be found at many Whole Foods Markets, on Amazon and the website store at http://www.drgarbers.com.

Dr. Stuart H. Garber, D.C., Ph.D., has been practicing holistic medicine since 1981. He has lectured to medical, dental, chiropractic and acupuncture groups in the United States and abroad. In 1997 Dr. Garber became the first person in the United States to receive a Ph.D. degree in homeopathy. He is the developer of the Dr. Garber’s Natural Solutions line of condition specific biotherapy formulas that are sold in Whole Foods Stores in California, Arizona and Nevada, other retail outlets here and abroad, through doctors’ offices and his website. He practices in Santa Monica, CA where he also conducts research in natural supplements and homeopathic medicine.
