Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis affects 1 in 3 women (over the age of 50) after menopause, however also can affect men. It is a disease of the bone that leads to an increased risk of fracture. In osteoporosis the bone mineral density (BMD) is reduced, bone microarchitecture is disrupted with the amount and variety of proteins in the bone being altered. You are more prone if you have hormonal disorders other chronic disease and many medications (particularly steriods) can increase your risk factor for osteoporoosis. Osteoporosis can be prevented and progression of the disease can be controlled with lifestyle changes. 

Symptoms

This disease starts in the early thirties, however most people do not know that they are suffering from osteoporosis until at a later age, normally after an unfortunate experience such as breaking a hip or wrist due to an accident or fall.  When the bones are significantly thinned (low in bone mass) even a simple cough or sneeze could cause a fracture of a rib.

At Alternative Living we can offer the following:

  1. Look at mineral and vitamin deficiencies
  2. Help inhibit the breakdown of bone
  3. Aid hormone rebalance - controls bone density
  4. Decrease inflammation and pain
  5. Suggest nutrients that help provide the building blocks to restore bone cartilage

We  provide diagnositc testing for osteoporosis to identify the rate of bone loss, this is a great way to help monitor progression and can be used as a preventative tool.
