Prevent Bone Loss Naturally

(The Best Years in Life) Osteoporosis is a disease that primarily targets post-menopausal women. The disease is characterized by abnormal bone loss which causes bones to become brittle and breakable. Osteopenia is the early stage of this bone loss and tends to strike earlier on.

Causes of Bone Loss

The most common causes of bone loss are calcium and vitamin D deficiency as a result of improper intake of these nutrients, an inability to absorb them, or both.

Less common causes of bone loss include:

  • Sedentary Lifestyle

  • Anorexia Nervosa

  • Hypothyroidism

  • Pernicious Anemia

  • Kidney Disease

  • Whipple's Disease

  • Acrodermatitis Enteropathica

  • Biliary Atresia

  • Prescription Medications (cortisone, Depo-Provera, Lupron, and prednisone).


Prevent Bone Loss Naturally

  • Improve Your Diet

One of the most common causes of nutrient malabsorption is hidden food intolerances. Those with an intolerance to one or more foods often experience chronic abdominal pain, diarrhea, constipation, muscle pain, brain fog, and cognitive impairment.

To determine if a hidden food intolerance is contributing to your bone loss, try an elimination diet.

Remove all dairy, wheat, gluten, artificial chemicals (food dyes, MSG, aspartame), fructose, corn, soy, and yeast from your diet for a period of six weeks.

If you feel healthier and stronger on the diet, one or more of the foods you eliminated may be causing your health problems. After the six-week period is over, reintroduce a new food each week to test for a reaction.

In the meantime, nourish your body with a balanced diet of organic vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, meat, poultry, fish, eggs, coconut oil, unsweetened yogurt, real butter, and plenty of water.

  • Try These Supplements

The Standard American Diet and lack of regular sun exposure have made vitamin D deficiency an epidemic. Consider incorporating vitamin D3, calcium, chelated magnesium, and vitamin K2 into your diet, as they work in harmony to prevent bone loss.

Before using vitamin D3, ask your doctor to test your blood levels. This way, you can both determine the right dose for you.

  • Use Weight-Bearing Exercises

Even if you're already experiencing bone loss, you can use weight-bearing exercises to increase bone tissue generation.

Some examples of weight-bearing exercises include:

  • lifting weights

  • climbing stairs

  • walking

  • running

  • hiking

  • marital arts

  • yoga

  • Go on the Rebounder

A rebounder, or mini trampoline, is used by NASA astronauts to increase bone density lost to lack of gravity. The benefits of rebounding also include invigorating your body's natural detoxification system, improving your balance and posture, strengthening your cardiovascular system, and improving your immunity.

Getting older doesn't mean you have to experience bone loss, even if you have a family history. These tips can help you prevent osteoporosis so you can enjoy good health for decades to come.
