Osteoporosis is most prevalent of the bone disease that affects people of western countries, especially developed nations like the US, the UK and Canada. It results in low bone mass density as a result bones becomes porous and fragile and the risk of bone fractures increases. Women are particularly more vulnerable to osteoporosis since they have lower bone mass right from the birth and bone loss accelerates after the menopause.
Over the years there has been research on osteoporosis and osteoporosis related bone disease by individual as well as by various bone health research organization and pharmaceutical companies. The book “Bone Health Revolution” written by Vivian Goldschmidt throws light on osteoporosis, osteopania and the drugs prescribed by big pharmaceutical companies for treatment of osteoporosis, and their associated side effects. She used her background in nutrition and biochemistry to find out a drug-free solution for treatment of osteoporosis by just modifying your lifestyle, diet, supplements and exercises.
Some of the points covered by Vivian Goldschmidt in her book include:
- Osteoporosis is not a disease, but a condition which is caused due to an imbalance in body.
- Osteoporosis is not inevitable and anyone can prevent the disease or slow down its symptoms without taking any drugs.
- Osteoporosis is also caused due to consumption of certain dairy products and foods that are acidic in nature. Such acidic foods leach calcium from our skeleton and thereby making the bones fragile and porous.
- Fosamax, Actonel, Boniva, Reclast and other biphosphonates that are routinely prescribed for treatment of osteoporosis, especially in women, may be extraordinarily dangerous to bone health if consumed for a long period of time. Scientific studies prove that osteoporosis drugs, especially bisphosphonates, do not really build bones. Instead, they hardened the bones. Though these drugs increase bone density by stopping natural bone loss, but unfortunately they also stop normal bone replacement and leave you with old dried-up and brittle bones that are more prone to bone fracture.
- Ultimately bone health can be maintained by modifying your lifestyle, by eating a balanced diet and staying physically active
