Safe Treatments

Osteoporosis – Who Is At Risk?

Ten years ago, Bone loss in women began, on average, at age 35. Today, it starts earlier, although when, is unknown.

By the time a woman reaches her mid 50s, her risk for an osteoporosis/osteopenia diagnosis is greater than 50%! Osteopenia & Osteoporosis affect hundreds of millions of women worldwide.

How Hormones Effect Osteoporosis

Estrogens stimulate the activity of Osteoclast cells. Their job is to clean out old bone tissue. You might view your estrogens as the Clean-up Crew”.
Progesterone stimulates the activity of Osteoblast cells. Their mission is to build new bone tissue. You might view your body’s own Progesterone as the safe pathway to strong bones, the “Skilled Carpenters”.

Too Much Estrogen = Osteoporosis

Women who have too much estrogen (estrogen dominance) will suffer bone loss, due to the estrogens removing old bone tissue, but having insufficient progesterone, the necessary hormone to build new bone tissue, ergo, osteoporosis!
Progesterone is one of three primary components for women to enjoy strong bones!

Do My Foods Affect Osteoporosis?

Foods that have been Genetically Modified (GMO), contain pesticides/herbicides/anti-biotics and growth hormone, are to be avoided as completely as possible.
Organically, sustainably-grown foods consumed “close to the ground” (this includes fruits & vegetables harvested and promptly flash frozen) are rich in the nutrients required by your body for strong bones.

Osteoporosis Definition

Osteoporosis develops when your body reabsorbs more bone tissue (too much estrogen) & produces less bone tissue (not enough progesterone) to replace it.

What Effect Does Calcium Have on Osteoporosis?

While calcium is the most talked about mineral, clinical studies show your body needs 13 minerals to support strong bones: Boron, Calcium, Copper, Magnesium, Manganese, Nickel, Silicon (Silica), Selenium, Strontium, Phosphorus, Potassium, Vanadium & Zinc.
For the purpose of successfully delivering these minerals to the bones, your body also needs three vitamins: D3, K2 & C.
These vitamin & minerals are the materials needed by your Carpenters (osteoblast cells) to build & maintain new, strong bone tissue.

What Effect Do Personal Care & Cleaning Products Have on Osteoporosis?

Anything that “touches your skin” or you “breathe-in” will have a direct effect on the healthy balance of all your hormones, including estrogen & progesterone.

This includes, but is not limited to soaps, lotions, shampoos, fragrances, cleaning products and, one of the worst, are room deodorizers.

These chemicals, most of which have been derived from crude oil, are called petrochemicals and will disrupt your endocrine system (this is where your hormones are made), directly leading to an imbalance of your valuable, necessary hormones.

Special Note: The Fluoride in oral care products & bottled water is known to leach valuable minerals from your teeth AND your bones and is a primary cause of osteoporosis.

Remember the Osteoblast cells that build new bone tissue? Fluoride kills them!

Fluoride also interferes with healthy levels of thyroid hormonekidney function and is damaging to your ovaries & to male sperm, making it a primary contributor to InfertilityMore…

What Effect Does Stress Have on Osteoporosis?

Prolonged stress, whether acute or low-grade, demands cortisol, which, in turn, depletes your Master Hormone, Progesterone & interferes with the production & balance of All your hormones.

What About Prolia?

Do not take Prolia® if you: have low blood calcium; or are pregnant or plan to become pregnant, as Prolia® may harm your unborn baby; or are allergic to denosumab or any ingredients in Prolia®. What is the most important information I should know about Prolia®? If you receive Prolia®, you should not receive XGEVA®. Prolia® contains the same medicine as XGEVA® (denosumab). Prolia® can cause serious side effects: Serious allergic reactions have happened in people who take Prolia®. Call your doctor or go to your nearest emergency room right away if you have any symptoms of a serious allergic reaction, including low blood pressure (hypotension); trouble breathing; throat tightness; swelling of your face, lips, or tongue; rash; itching; or hives. Low blood calcium (hypocalcemia): Prolia® may lower the calcium levels in your blood. If you have low blood calcium, it may get worse during treatment. Your low blood calcium must be treated before you receive Prolia®. Take calcium and vitamin D as your doctor tells you to help prevent low blood calcium. Severe jaw bone problems (osteonecrosis) may occur: Your doctor should examine your mouth before you start Prolia® and may tell you to see your dentist. It is important for you to practice good mouth care during treatment with Prolia®. Unusual thigh bone fractures: Some people have developed unusual fractures in their thigh bone. Symptoms of a fracture include new or unusual pain in your hip, groin, or thigh. Increased risk of broken bones, including broken bones in the spine, after stopping, skipping or delaying Prolia®: Talk with your doctor before starting Prolia® treatment. After your treatment with Prolia® is stopped, or if you skip or delay taking a dose, your risk for breaking bones, including bones in your spine, is increased. Your risk for having more than 1 broken bone in your spine is increased if you have already had a broken bone in your spine. Do not stop, skip or delay taking Prolia® without first talking with your doctor. If your Prolia® treatment is stopped, talk to your doctor about other medicine that you can take. Serious infections in your skin, lower stomach area (abdomen), bladder, or ear may happen: Inflammation of the inner lining of the heart (endocarditis) due to an infection may also happen more often in people who take Prolia®. You may need to go to the hospital for treatment. Prolia® is a medicine that may affect the ability of your body to fight infections: People who have weakened immune systems or take medicines that affect the immune system may have an increased risk for developing serious infections. Skin problems such as inflammation of your skin (dermatitis), rash, and eczema have been reported. Bone, joint, or muscle pain. Some people who take Prolia® develop severe bone, joint, or muscle pain. Before taking Prolia®, tell your doctor about all of your medical conditions, including if you:
  • Take the medicine XGEVA® (denosumab)
  • Have low blood calcium
  • Cannot take daily calcium and vitamin D
  • Had parathyroid or thyroid surgery (glands located in your neck)
  • Have been told you have trouble absorbing minerals in your stomach or intestines (malabsorption syndrome)
  • Have kidney problems or are on kidney dialysis
  • Are taking medicine that can lower your blood calcium levels
  • Plan to have dental surgery or teeth removed
  • Are pregnant or plan to become pregnant Females who are able to become pregnant:
    • Your healthcare provider should do a pregnancy test before you start treatment with Prolia®.
    • You should use an effective method of birth control (contraception) during treatment with Prolia® and for at least 5 months after your last dose of Prolia®.
    • Tell your doctor right away if you become pregnant while taking Prolia®.
  • Are breast-feeding or plan to breast-feed
What are the side effects of Prolia®? (Provided by Manufacturer) It is not known if the use of Prolia® over a long period of time may cause slow healing of broken bones. The most common side effects of Prolia® in women being treated for osteoporosis after menopause are back pain, pain in your arms and legs, high cholesterol, muscle pain, and bladder infection. The most common side effects of Prolia® in men with osteoporosis are back pain, joint pain, and common cold (runny nose or sore throat). The most common side effects of Prolia® in patients with corticosteroid-induced osteoporosis are back pain, high blood pressure, lung infection (bronchitis), and headache. The most common side effects of Prolia® in patients receiving certain treatments for prostate or breast cancer are joint pain, back pain, pain in your arms and legs, and muscle pain. Additionally, in Prolia®-treated men with nonmetastatic prostate cancer receiving ADT, a greater incidence of cataracts was observed. These are not all the possible side effects of Prolia®. Call your doctor for medical advice about side effects. You are encouraged to report negative side effects of prescription drugs to the FDA.
