Building Bone Strength Naturally

Osteoporosis is a disease that weakens bones, leaving them susceptible to fracture.  In the US, about 8 million women and 2 million men have osteoporosis.  Millions more have low bone mass (osteopenia), a pre-cursor to osteoporosis.

Osteoporosis is a major health threat because many osteoporosis suffers endure bone fractures, which leave them seriously disabled for the remainder of their lives.

Tips for preventing osteoporosis naturally:

  • Get regular chiropractic checkups
  • Get enough calcium and vitamin D
  • Exercise
  • Bulk up on B vitamins
  • Increase potassium consumption
  • Drink tea
  • Avoid cola
  • Limit chocolate
  • Avoid excess alcohol — consider small amounts
  • Don’t smoke
  • Manage depression
