Bone Health and Osteoporosis
by Judith Cobb, MH, CI3, NCP, NNCP, CCII3
Bone health and osteoporosis are just not the kind of problems that most people pay much attention to. They are not something that will kill you suddenly like a heart attack, and they are not likely to garner the sympathy that cancer does. If you’re a woman, though, you have a 50% chance of feeling its impact any time after you turn 50, and if you’re a man your chance is one in four.
We often think of the stooped-over elderly woman, you know, the one Boy Scouts help cross the street, as the classic picture of someone who has osteoporosis. Nothing could be further from the truth!
Osteoporosis is a serious condition. 50% of hip fracture patients lose their ability to walk without assistance. As if that isn't depressing enough, 28% of women and 37% of men will die within one year of fracturing a hip.
There are indicators in the eyes that warn us that a person’s genes might make them prone to having weaker bones. When we couple that with other markers that teach about acid/alkaline balance and digestion, we can get a pretty good idea of who is at risk – when they are yet young.
Imagine how the outcome for the health of your bones would change if you learned at a young age that you were prone to certain variables that could lead to osteoporosis.
Changing your diet and lifestyle and supporting your digestive processes could delay or prevent issues later on in life. Would it be worth it?
