Osteoporosis is a condition where bones become brittle and weak, making them more likely to break. Your bones are a living tissue that is constantly being broken down and replaced. With osteoporosis, your body doesn’t create enough new bone to replace what is being lost.
Over time, the condition worsens, ultimately resulting in impaired mobility and, most likely, being confined to a wheelchair.
There’s no such thing as an osteoporosis ‘specialist’. So, your primary doctor may send you to a specialist, such as an endocrinologist, gynecologist, rheumatologist, orthopedist, geriatrician, or physiatrist.
To find out your osteoporosis level, your doctor will check your T-score, which measures bone density. Normal bone density is somewhere between -1.0 to +4.0. Low bone density (osteopenia) is -1.0 to -2.5. Osteoporosis is having a score of -2.5 to -4.0.
Once you know your score, the doctor will provide a treatment plan. Usually, it involves weight-bearing exercises, adding calcium to your diet, and taking some form of medication. However, these drugs must be taken long-term and are unreliable with many side effects. One is ongoing pain that is worse than the condition itself.
Another issue with the medicines is that if you ever come off them, then the rate of bone deterioration actively increased. In fact, several consumer watchdog groups found that bone deterioration picked up so severely that you could experience a broken bone without any physical trauma having caused it.
The problem with this treatment method is that it focuses on the symptoms, not fixing the cause.
What is the cause of osteoporosis?
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), chronic inflammatory diseases are the most significant cause of disease and death worldwide.
In recent years, the number of inflammation-related diseases has risen to the hundreds of millions throughout the world. In the US, over 800,000 people a year die from inflammatory disease. There are many, many inflammatory diseases:
And, you guessed it, osteoporosis!
An analysis of studies from the Journal of Endocrinology discovered that high levels of inflammatory markers in the blood stops the body from creating new bone.
Where does the inflammation come from?
Researchers have confirmed that poor gut health is a primary cause of widespread body inflammation. Your gut health is directly affected by the bacteria in it.
We have the misconception that bacteria are bad for us. However, they’re just unicellular microorganisms – neither good nor bad.
The bacteria in your gut perform essential tasks that your body is unable to do for itself. A shortage of good gut bacteria is directly implicated in a dozen common illnesses. You’d actually die without your gut bacteria!
An unhealthy gut environment means that the number of good, life-enhancing bacteria is too low. When this persists for an extended period, it causes ongoing, low-level inflammation, resulting in many different diseases.
A healthy gut is one where the good bacteria are fed plenty of good, varied food. This equates to no inflammation.
The good news is that a gut-friendly diet is super easy. Many foods promote good gut health, and they’re widely available.
There are two keys ways to regaining a healthy gut. The first is knowing which foods are essential to gut health. Second, to eat the right quantities of them in the right combinations.
(An added bonus is if you address inflammation from your gut to end its effects on your bone health, you’re possibly also helping yourself out with other conditions, too.)
It’s important to note that movement and nutrition are vital in treating osteoporosis. The issue is the advice from most doctors doesn’t work.
When it comes to exercise advice, it’s often challenging to implement. As far as nutritional information, it’s usually vague, too general, and, once again, hard to put into practice.
To better combat the condition, you need to know which foods cause bone loss, promote bone formation, and the correct balance of these. If doctors don’t provide this information, where can you find it?
This is where The Bone Density Solution comes in!
The first thing the program addresses is ways to include effective osteoporosis movement into your busy schedule. These movements are designed to toughen up bone every time you do them.
As part of the program, you receive a comprehensive list of foods that cause bone loss and promote its growth. Also, you get straightforward meal plans to ensure you get as many of the good ones into your diet as possible. The list of foods that aren’t “good” is short, but it does include a few that are usually thought of as “healthy.”
The program isn’t a health “miracle.” It’s based on the best data from US and European research institutions that has been uncovered in the past ten years.
It all comes down to your lifestyle habits that either promote wellness or illness. The Bone Density Solution is an easy-to-follow, 14 step program that treats osteoporosis’s root causes by encouraging overall wellness.
You get to choose to take on a new step every day or one every couple of days.
One key thing to remember is that osteoporosis is a condition of deterioration. So, the sooner you intervene, the easier it is to restore bone health and live life as the healthy person you want to be.
The later you intervene, the longer it takes. And the more likely you’re going to end up with a fracture or break that completely upends your life.
Did you know that there are about 300,000 hip fractures per year in the US?
Close to half of these people will never walk unaided again, and about 15% will need long-term nursing care. Sadly, 25% will be dead within a year.
Many of these fractures probably could’ve been prevented if the individuals had better bone health.
You don’t have to be one of these numbers because you sign up to receive The Bone Density Solution and, in a few minutes, you’ll have what you need to start saving your bone health!
