Alternative Osteoporosis Treatment:
The main cause of osteoporosis, more than anything else, is based on a poor diet. As a rule, we don't eat enough foods that are rich in calcIUm and other minerals, that are necessary for good bone health.
Osteoporosis should be called a nutritional and hormonal disease. We can find the solution to the problem, by testing for nutritional and hormonal deficiencies. Osteoporosis will start to develop, from a hormonal prospective, as we age. We all ( both men and women ) begin to lose both progesterone and testosterone. We also start gaining a very powerful hormone estradiol. Estradiol is about 300 times more potent in the body, than either progesterone or testosterone and therefore it occupies the cell sites, that should be occupied by progesterone and testosterone.

Prevention of osteoporosis depends on what we absorb, from the foods and supplements that we ingest. Doctors that prescribe drugs (antacids) to lower your stomach acid (this raises the stomach acid ph and prevents proper nutritional absorption), are a major cause of osteoporosis. There is a test to measure your stomach acid PH (Heidelberg Test). For more information visit www.phcapsule.com, 800-241-7517.
The best test to see how much bone loss has occurred is a Dexascan. This scan produces a very low level of radiation, so little in fact, that the scan operator sits right next to you, during the scan. Contact your local hospital or clinic for the scan. The scan takes about 10 minutes.
Vitamin and mineral deficiencies are very real and they can make you sick. In Vitamin and Mineral Medicine: You can stop osteoporosis and even reverse it. Good nutrition is one key to lifelong physical health and intellectual sharpness. Just think how much better life would be for so many millions of people, if it were commonly known that vitamins and minerals could protect and renew your bones.

What Causes Bone Loss In Young Women
The bone building that goes on in a girl's teens and twenties lays the foundation for bone health later in life. We know that moderate exercise builds bone. It also helps keep insulin, estrogen and other hormones balanced. But did you know that young women who eat a restricted diet and go to extremes of exercise (e.g. ballet dancers, runners) often stop ovulating, and may even stop having periods altogether? If you're not ovulating you're not making progesterone, and you're not having periods you're not making much in the way of estrogen either. Since progesterone plays a role in building bone, and estrogen plays a role in keeping bone loss under control, suppressing hormone production in early adulthood can have an effect on whether bones are healthy around the time of menopause.
Canadian research done by a team that included Jerilyn Prior, M.D. also shows that increased cortisol levels caused by extreme exercise may also contribute to bone loss in young women. The researchers measured cortisol levels as well as bone content and density, and had the women fill out questionnaires regarding their eating and exercise habits. The women were similar in age, weight and body mass (amount of fat on the body), but those who went to extremes of dieting and exercise had much poorer bone quality.
Extreme exercise raises cortisol levels, and a chronically high cortisol level depletes bone. Dr. Lee felt that this was because progesterone and cortisol compete for receptor sites in bone, and while progesterone builds bone, cortisol depletes it.
Another cause of bone loss in young women is taking birth control pills. The progestins in the birth control pills block ovulation, and thus hormone production, and most progestins don't build bone the way that progesterone does. In other words, the non-bone-building progestins replace the bone-building progesterone and interfere with bone building.
Since we also know that using oral contraceptives during adolescence increases the risk of breast cancer, it seems evident that they should be used with caution.
