What is Osteoporosis?
How can it be Prevented and Reversed?

"Osteoporosis is a disease in which bones become fragile and more likely to break. If not prevented or if left untreated, osteoporosis can progress painlessly until a bone breaks. These broken bones, also known as fractures, occur typically in the hip, spine, and wrist. Any bone can be affected, but of special concern are fractures of the hip and spine. A hip fracture almost always requires hospitalization and major surgery. It can impair a person's ability to walk unassisted and may cause prolonged or permanent disability or even death. Spinal or vertebral fractures also have serious consequences, including loss of height, severe back pain, and deformity."

Easy Osteoporosis Test You Can Do At Home

Doctors don't tell you about this easy test because you can do it yourself and it is FREE. Doctors prefer to give complicated and expensive bone density tests that don't tell the entire story. A bone density test in the heel or hip area does not give an accurate description of the bone condition in the spine. The home test is done by measuring your total height standing in bare feet with the heels, back, shoulders, and head square against a wall. Have a friend place a level horizontal on top of the head to place a pencil mark on the wall. Measure the height to the line. Osteoporosis will appear as a reduction in height from the lifetime maximum height. Being at full lifetime maximum height with no height loss whatsoever at 65 years of age is common in healthy individuals. Serious osteoporosis exists when a person of 5' - 10" (1778 mm) tall has lost 1.0" (25 mm) in height or a person of 5' - 3" (1600 mm) tall has lost 0.75" (19 mm) in height. Lesser or greater degrees of osteoporosis are compared to these typical readings.

Osteoporosis means porous bone and is a serious problem among postmenopausal women and to a lesser degree older men. The professional medical associations, nutritionists, and health websites have been making the same old diet recommendation to women for years, "Drink low-fat milk." Yet the problem keeps increasing. Eating protein is rarely mentioned by these professional associations in the discussion of osteoporosis even though bones and teeth are approximately 50% protein. Other sources falsely claim animal protein is the cause of osteoporosis. These fraudulent studies claim to be high-protein diets but instead use isolated, fractionated amino acids obtained from milk or eggs. (9) They did not use protein from meat. They fail to include all the other vitamins and minerals found in meat which are necessary for the metabolism of calcium. A more accurate study proved that protein from meat does not cause a calcium loss.(10) The lysine amino acid found in red meat is essential in children for bone formation. Red meat builds strong bones in kids.

Bone is constantly undergoing the replacement of old bone with new bone in a metabolic process called remodeling. The minerals and protein are removed by the body for use elsewhere or discarded, and new minerals and protein are replaced. The distal (lower) portion of the femur (thighbone) is replaced about every four months. Other bones are replaced at a slower rate, and some bones are not replaced in the individual's lifetime. The proper recycling of bone material is critical for the prevention of osteoporosis which occurs when old bone is removed but new bone material is not properly replaced. Degenerative back and neck disc disease is most likely cause by a diet deficient in protein and a catabolic metabolic state brought on by hyperinsulinemia that in turn is caused by the excess consumption of carbohydrates. Prescription drugs cannot prevent bone loss in the presence of powerful catabolic hormones produced by the body during hyperinsulinemia. The diet suggested here is vital for the body's rebuilding of bones.

Hyperinsulinemia causes the excretion of magnesium and calcium in the urine. The high-carbohydrate diet recommended by the USDA Food Guide Pyramid leads to hyperinsulinemia. The bones are literally flushed out of the body in the urine, resulting in the current epidemic of osteoporosis. Women are more at risk because they avoid meat and fat. Women tend to follow official diet recommendations more closely than men. This causes women to eat more carbohydrates than men and therefore suffer more from osteoporosis, diabetes, and cancer. Women are the primary dietary leaders in the home. They generally do the supermarket shopping and cooking. This trend is destroying the health of the entire family.

This look at osteoporosis, bone loss, and fractures is based on a scientific and chemical analysis of bone construction and health. The medical and nutritional references herein represent a small minority struggling to give women and men the truth about osteoporosis.

WARNING! The universally recommended diet (URD) given to women based on the USDA Food Guide Pyramid of low-fat, low-cholesterol, little or no red meat, high in low-fat milk and low-fat yogurt is very destructive to the bones, as millions of women in all English-speaking countries around the world are proving. Prescription drugs will not correct the bone loss. The URD is high in sodium from processed foods which depletes potassium. The URD is excessively high in calcium which depletes the magnesium that is vital to bone growth. The low-protein URD causes the body to scavenge the high tensile strength protein collagen matrix from the bone, causing it to become weak. The URD is actually the cause of osteoporosis, not the preventative cure.

Calcium pills 'raise heart risk' - BBC News - January 16, 2008.

Study Links Calcium Pills to Heart Risk
Kounteya Sinha, TNN, Jul 31, 2010, 01.26am IST

NEW DELHI: Beware of calcium pills! Popped by millions of women and senior citizens for strong bones, it apparently has a potentially dangerous side effect. The pills could increase chances of suffering a cardiac arrest, claims a new study.

An international panel of researchers -- many of them from New Zealand's Aberdeen and Auckland University -- claim those who take calcium supplements to improve bone density face a 30% higher risk of heart attacks. It could also increase the risk of minor episodes of stroke and mortality.

The researchers, who published their study in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) on Friday, came to the conclusion after reviewing 11 random controlled trials of calcium supplements, which involved 12,000 patients.

Recent Testimonies From People with Degenerative Disc Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, Crohn's Disease and Candida

Note: The ex-vegetarian below switched to a high-fat, red meat diet with awesome health improvements. The vegetarian diet caused degenerative disc disease and intestinal diseases.

"Dear Mr. Rieske,

How can I ever thank you? Your knowledge, insight, honesty, and courage contained in your articles have significantly improved the quality of my life!

I am now 37 years old. From the ages of 25 to 36 I had adopted a predominantly vegetarian lifestyle. Over the years I have developed a mild case of degenerative disc disease, constant headaches, and a severe case of Candida (and perhaps leaky gut). I started to figure out that something was definitely wrong. The mainstream nutritional advice had definitely steered me in the wrong direction.

I have been eating a "clean" and "natural" diet for several months now on red meat, fish, fowl, a small amount of veggies and berries (I can't help it, I love berries). My headaches have disappeared! I went from 172 lbs (at 5'8" tall) to 158 lbs! I have no constipation nor diarrhea (which was at one time constant)! I think clearly, my mood is better, and I feel great!

You have made a huge impact on my life, and I am grateful. I have discussed your information and website with every person in my social circle as it is all I can seem to do to help others as you've helped me.

Thanks again, and God Bless,
Stuart"

"I thought I would sign in for a progress report! I am doing very well. So far, so good. I am down to 2 BM's a day, and bleeding has disappeared. I am eating a very balanced diet (from the "Starting Diet" below) and it seems as if I am able to tolerate a lot of the red meat now. Thank you for all your advice, and I hope all is well with you."

Note: The report above tells of ulcerative colitis healing that occurred in only a few weeks on this diet program.

"I had colitis problems since 2 years of age. Chronic constipation was a problem for 30 years as an adult. I was diagnosed as having Crohn's colitis disease three years ago when the constipation changed to diarrhea. After a few months on your diet I am now free of all symptoms, and I discontinued my drug. My recent colonoscopy showed a perfectly normal colon. My doctor was amazed. The arthritis in my hands had been causing stiffness and pain. It was getting worse each year but has completely disappeared. I can knit again."

Note: The report below from Sweden is typical of the denial by doctors. Don't expect your doctor to agree with this diet program. Most likely your doctor will object strongly. Neither will he give the diet any credit for your healing.

"I have been following your diet for a couple of months. I eat mostly moose meat with coconut fat. I had a colonoscopy three days ago and guess what? No inflammation! My colon looked so good my doctor said the previous inflammation could not have been from a flare. Yeah, right! I know it was a bad flare, but I am fine now. Your page was the first site to open my eyes to the dangers of eating carbs. Keep up the good work."

Note: The report below tell how this diet program works where other diets have failed.

"Thanks for your information, it's been very helpful. I've taken your advice, and I've eliminated many of the offending foods that were allowed on another type of IBD diet that I thought were alright. That diet includes yogurt, melon, goat's cheese and surprisingly, the most helpful of all carrots! I've gone almost a year thinking that I couldn't tolerate butter and fatty meat, and suddenly they cause me no problem. I was having a flare for three weeks, and just beginning with the principals of your diet (not including the supplements and minerals) has gotten me back to normality in less than a week. It's a wonder!"

Carbohydrates Cause Osteoporosis

The scientific study of adrenal hormones proves carbohydrates cause bone loss and osteoporosis by increasing insulin, which causes an increase in cortisol and adrenalin. Excess cortisol causes the demineralization of bones. Eating grains, sugar, honey, fruit, fructose, and starches can and does cause osteoporosis.

The Instant Osteoporosis Cycle 

The author has coined the synonym "Instant Osteoporosis Cycle" (IOC) to describe the sudden onset and escalation of osteoporosis. This occurs in the cycle between hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) and diabetes (high blood sugar). Hypoglycemia is caused by insulin resistance of the cells, during which time the pancreas produces a high level of insulin to force glucose into the cells. The insulin stays at an abnormally high level which triggers the adrenal gland to secrete cortisol and adrenalin in an attempt to force the insulin level down. Cortisol and adrenalin are very strong catabolic hormones, meaning they are involved in breaking down body tissue. This catabolic action on the bones causes bone loss, osteoporosis, and degenerative disc disease in as little as one year. Once diabetes becomes full blown, the pancreas stops producing insulin and the cycle stops, but insulin injections can cause the same effect. Very obese females receive some degree of protection because body fat produces estrogen, which is one of the anabolic hormones that stimulates the building up of the body. This is the reason hormone replacement therapy is claimed to protect the bones. However, the estrogen effect is marginal at best and not the suggested method of preventing osteoporosis. Eating protein and fat while avoiding carbohydrates induces the production of the hormone glucagon which is the best way to protect bones. Eating carbohydrates like sugar, honey, grains, starches, and fruit cause osteoporosis.  

Absolute Scientific Proof Carbohydrates Are Pathogenic. 

A high ratio of carbohydrates to protein in the diet increases the blood insulin level, leading to hypoglycemia (low blood glucose). The body attempts to correct the blood glucose level by stimulating the adrenal gland to secrete additional cortisol and adrenalin. This shows that a high-carbohydrate diet leads to harmful levels of cortisol.

Excess cortisol:

Protein

Bone is a living body component with blood vessels, nerves, and the periodic replacement of cells. The bone matrix consists of 25% water, 25% protein fibers, and 50% mineral salts. Protein high tensile strength collagen fibers are the component in bone formation that gives the bone structural strength. This is analogous to reinforcing steel, informally called rebar, in steel-reinforced concrete structures. The mineral deposits in bone consist of crystallized mineral salts in the form of tricalcium phosphate with some calcium carbonate and smaller amounts of magnesium hydroxide, fluoride, and sulfate. This mineral formation provides the compressive strength in the bone similar to the concrete in reinforced concrete structures.

A bending load applied to the bone places one side of the bone in compression and the other side in tension. The compressive strength of the mineral deposit is normally sufficient to resist a compression failure. However, mineral deposits are very weak in tension. The protein fibers are placed in tension and give bones their high strength and resistance to fracture. Failure of the bone occurs when the tensile strength of the protein fiber is exceeded. This is the normal fracture method when someone breaks an arm, leg, or hip joint. A crushing compression failure can occur locally when the bone is subjected to impact from a foreign object. A loss of strength in the protein lattice is the normal cause of hip fractures, contrary to the standard medical propaganda that hip fractures are caused by calcium loss. These hip fractures are not generally caused by the compression failure of the mineral deposit but are a tension failure of the protein lattice. The head of the femur (upper leg bone) is offset at an angle as it aligns with the hipbone socket. This offset and the weight of a person who is standing places a bending moment in the small-diameter neck section just below the head. The bending moment (an engineering term for the way forces are applied) creates both tension and compression stresses, whereas the straight section of the femur generally has only compression stress from the vertical load. The tension stress causes a failure whereby the head is broken from the femur, and the common hip fracture is the result. Compression fractures do occur but are more common in the spine.

The best sources of protein in the diet are meat, fowl, fish, and seafood. Avoid all soy products and grains because the protein in these products does not have all the essential amino acids, and they are very high in carbohydrates. Remember that this site recommends the strict adherence to a low-carbohydrate diet for optimal healing and health.

A lie put forth by vegetarians and animal rights proponents suggests that eating meat weakens the bones because more calcium is excreted in the urine. It is true that eating animal products increases calcium in the urine during the first few weeks of a low-carbohydrate diet, but they fail to tell you that calcium excretion soon normalizes, and animal protein begins to increase the absorption of calcium in the intestinal tract. These studies by vegetarians and animal rights proponents are frauds that distort the truth. A large study published by the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research (1) shows both elderly men and women who consumed the most animal protein had the lowest rate of bone loss, while those who consumed the least amount of animal protein had the highest rate of bone loss. A study by the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition (2) has shown that postmenopausal women who consumed the highest amount of animal protein had the strongest bones and the lowest percentage of hip fractures. Diets lowest in meat required a longer time for healing of a bone fracture and the slowest recovery time from illnesses in general. Eating meat improves healing and health.

Eskimos Prove An All-Meat Diet Provides Excellent Health.

Soybean plants are the most genetically modified organism (GMO) in the United States' food supply. As of January 2006, the percentage of soybeans that have been genetically modified is estimated to be 75% and spreading fast. Virtually all products on supermarket shelves that contain any soy or soy protein have all been contaminated. Just because a soy product is labeled "organic" does not mean it is GMO free. Vegetarians gorge themselves on soy products such as soy milk and soy burgers. Vegetarian foods such as breads, bagels, cereals, crackers, pastas, and energy drinks have all been fortified with soy protein made from GMO contaminated soybeans.

Eating low levels of meat also places the body in a catabolic state in which the muscles and protein lattice in bone are cannibalized for their protein. A catabolic state is one in which the processes of the body are breaking down the body for survival. An anabolic state is one in which the body is building muscle and bone. Eating meat and fat with their associated minerals and vitamins places the body in an anabolic state and normalizes the hormones to promote growth. A 63-year-old male acquaintance with a height of about 5' - 10" (1778 mm) recently had a decrease in stature of one inch (25 mm) within the past year. This reduction in height suggests his body is in a severe state of catabolism. His body is literally eating itself. His diet had high levels of refined carbohydrates in the form of sugar and flour which were consumed routinely. A low-fat diet was followed in accordance with the typical medical and nutritional professional associations. His diet was low in animal protein and natural animal fats. In contrast, the author is 64 years of age as of March 2003, and has been on a low-carbohydrate diet high in animal protein and fat since June 1999. Before that time, the diet had moderate amounts of animal protein and fat but was higher in carbohydrates than at present. The author's present height of 6' - 5 3/8" (1965 mm) is exactly the same as the maximum height at any previous age. Loss in height has been zero, and the author has never experienced a broken bone from any cause.

Protein and L-Glutamine Drink. Prepare a drink made with whey amino acid protein powder which is enriched with extra glutamine amino acid. The protein powder consists of a full compliment of amino acid isolates that heal the body and require no digestion. Prepare the drink by blending 8 to 16 oz of reverse osmosis with UV lamp water or unsweetened, low-sodium tomato juice with 1 heaping teaspoon (12 gm) of whey protein powder plus 1 rounded teaspoon (8 gm) of glutamine amino acid powder. Stirring vigorously with the teaspoon is sufficient. The whey protein must be specified on the carton as isolates from cross flow microfiltration and ion-exchange, ultrafiltered concentrate, low molecular weight, and partially hydrolyzed whey protein peptides rich in branched chain amino acids and glutamine peptides. The low-carbohydrate type at 1 gm per scoop or less is best, but it should not be more than 4-5 gm of carbohydrates per scoop. Do not substitute protein from soy, egg, casein, or any other source. Sugar or any other sweetener is unacceptable. Use the "natural flavor" without additives. This amino acid drink can be enjoyed anytime with or without a meal. Amino acids are foods that build and maintain the body. Refrigerate whey protein powder and discard if it is old. Whey protein powder can cause some gas and an unusually "full" feeling. Discontinue the whey protein powder if the reactions are unpleasant. Continue to take the glutamine powder.

This combination of amino acids has been shown to provide the following healing properties:

  • Provides pain killing effects by healing the nervous system.

  • Absorption of body building amino acids without requiring digestion.

  • Stimulates insulin like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) which functions similarly to insulin and enhances protein synthesis and healing.

  • Fights infections by stimulating the immune system. All immune cells are made from poly-peptides of amino acids.

  • Provides bone growth of protein collagen and strengthens bones. Poor digestion has been shown to cause osteoporosis and degenerative bone disease.

  • Provides all of the amino acids required to heal and grow ligaments, tendons, joints, muscles, intestinal tract, heart muscle, and all other organs of the body.

  • Prevents hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) symptoms in people with hypoglycemia or diabetes.

Building Strong Ligaments, Tendons, Collagen, Joints, Bones, Skin, Veins, and Arteries

Three amino acids are essential in building strong ligaments, tendons, collagen, joints, bones, skin, veins, and arteries. L-glycine, L-proline, and L-lysine work together to form strong protein structures that have the appearance of a twisted three-strand rope. Together these three amino acids form the strongest tissues in the body. Tendons connect muscles to bones to transfer the power of the muscles into the skeleton of the body. Ligaments connect bone to bone for keeping two or more bones in the joint together in proper alignment while allowing flexibility for movement of the joint components. The collagen matrix in bone provides the tensile strength that keeps bones from breaking. L-glycine is readily abundant in the diet, but L-proline and L-lysine should be supplemented to insure an abundant supply for building a strong, robust body.

L-Proline Amino Acid Supplement. L-Proline is an amino acid that is essential for the synthesis of collagen, the most abundant protein in mammals. Collagen is the main structural protein that constitutes all human connective tissues, including skin, tendons, ligaments, joints, bone, and vasculature (veins and arteries). L-Proline therefore provides building blocks that help to stabilize and strengthen the structural components of the body. Although proline can be made in the body, low protein and vegetarian diets may not provide optimal support for the production of collagen. This is vitally important supplement to build strong joints and spine. L-Proline is very popular among bodybuilders as a supplement that will prevent joint injuries from workouts and everyday life. Take at least two 500mg tablets or more per day.
L-Proline Amino Acid.

L-Lysine Amino Acid Supplement. L-Lysine is an essential amino acid, which means your body cannot manufacture it. It must be obtained through the diet or by supplementation. Lysine is one of the most well known amino acids and is an essential component of all proteins. L-Lysine is an amino acid that is essential for building strong ligaments, tendons, collagen, joints, bones, veins, and arteries. L-lysine has the added benefit of suppressing viruses in the body as has been proven in scientific studies. Take at least two 1000mg tablets or more per day.
L-Lysine Amino Acid.

Essential Fatty Acids

Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acids. The three most nutritionally important omega-3 fatty acids are alpha-linolenic fatty acid (ALA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and docosahexaenoic fatty acid (DHA). Alpha-linolenic fatty acid is one of two fatty acids traditionally classified as "essential." The other fatty acid traditionally viewed as essential is an omega-6 fat called linoleic acid. These fatty acids have traditionally been classified as “essential” because the body is unable to manufacture them on its own and because they play a fundamental role in several physiological functions. As a result, we must be sure our diet contains sufficient amounts of both alpha-linolenic acid and linoleic acid.

78 Ways Sugar Can Ruin Your Health - One of Which is Bone Loss.

Calcium

Osteoporosis is the reduction in the density of the mineral salts in the bone. The composite becomes more porous and has a lower compressive strength. Bones can become compressed or sustain a compression fracture. This is especially noticeable in the spinal column and results in a reduction in the total height of the individual. The deformity can also be seen in the appearance as poor posture. The result is degenerative disc disease or herniated discs.
Herniated Disc.
Osteoporosis.

The consumption of calcium and magnesium in the diet is important for strong and healthy bones. However, the past recommendation of a diet high in dairy products such as low-fat milk as a source of calcium has failed to prevent osteoporosis and fractures, especially in elderly women. It should be pointed out that elderly women typically refrain from meat consumption, especially fatty red meat, much more so than men. This could have a significant bearing on their higher rate of osteoporosis. Anyone doubting this conclusion should ask any elderly women with osteoporosis the following question. "Do you typically consume fatty red meat?" The answer is universal, "No, never." As the call went out by the majority of professional nutritionists to avoid red meat and animal fat, the rate of osteoporosis has significantly increased. More women and men die of osteoporosis related complications in the United States every year than breast cancer, ovarian cancer and prostate cancer combined.

Do not take supplemental calcium tablets if you eat generous amounts of hard cheeses on the low-carbohydrate diet recommended here. Supplementation with chelated calcium and magnesium tablets is suggested if hard cheeses are not eaten but should never be done with calcium alone. Chelated calcium and magnesium are the most readily absorbed. Excess calcium by itself results in the excretion of magnesium, and the calcium is not absorbed easily into the body. Coral calcium from the sea as a healthy source is a fraud. The coral calcium is in the form of calcium carbonate and is the most difficult to absorb into the body. In addition, the sea source can contain undesirable quantities of harmful heavy metals. Coral calcium is not a manufactured product and therefore bypasses the rigorous requirements placed on manufactured sources of calcium tablets. Always take magnesium tablets as described below.

Calcium and vitamin D supplements offer modest bone improvements, no benefits for colorectal cancer.

The professional health associations have been crying, "calcium, calcium, calcium," for many years. They have been begging women to get their calcium from low-fat milk, but the rate of osteoporosis keeps increasing. Dairy products such as milk and cheese are high in calcium but low in magnesium. This poor ratio causes an increase in urinary loss of magnesium, an essential bone component as discussed below. These dairy products, especially cheese, usually contain high levels of sodium chloride (table salt). Sodium causes urinary calcium excretion. Many dairy products, such as milk and yogurt, also contain high levels of carbohydrates which cause weight gain, diabetes, cancer, and heart disease.

The Case Against Fiber

Fiber absorbs vitamins and minerals and discharges them from the body. Fiber leaches calcium from the digestive tract and discharges it in the stool when it is desperately needed to prevent osteoporosis, bone loss, hip fractures, and degenerative disc disease.

Mineral contents of brans passed through the human GI tract.

Dietary Fiber Theory. Scientific Proof Fiber in the Diet is Unhealthy.

Do not take fiber supplements. Do not take psyllium seed husk, which is very abrasive to the digestive system. Do not eat wheat bran or rice bran. Fiber is a bad dude. Dietary fiber may not be digestible by the healthy individual, but it certainly is digestible by pathogenic gut bacteria and yeasts. These bacteria and yeasts ferment the fiber to produce alcohol, acetaldehyde, lactic acid, acetic acid, and a host of other toxic chemicals when they break down the fiber. Intestinal gas is a sure sign that fiber and/or sugars are being fermented. Avoid all whole grains, brown rice, fruit, and dried beans, as they are high in both fiber and complex carbohydrates, a double blow to the digestive system. The reason many gastroenterologists recommend a high fiber diet is based on the faulty logic of Dr. Dennis Burkitt, a British surgeon working in Africa more than half a century ago. Dr. Burkitt's theory that barley bread prevented irritable bowel disorders has failed. The Africans were simply showing the benefits of not eating fruit and refined carbohydrates like sugar and flour. Fiber not only does not prevent or cure irritable bowel diseases but actually makes them worse. Studies of many other primitive societies have proven very low-fiber diets prevent intestinal diseases and cancer as proven by Weston A. Price, DDS in his book Nutrition and Physical Degeneration and arctic explorers Vilhjalmur Stefansson and Karsten Anderson during many years of living with the Eskimos. 
Fiber May Raise Colon Cancer Risk.

The Case Against Milk

Milk may actually rob the body of more calcium than it provides. This is because milk has a very high phosphate content. Phosphate carries calcium with it when it is excreted from the body. The author has not drunk a glass of milk in at least 20 years, drank very little milk before that, and didn't really like milk as a kid. I am very tall, have excellent bone health, and stand at my maximum lifetime height at age 64 as described above. Complete food groups of grains, fruit, and starchy vegetables were removed from the diet as of June 1999. The result has been an awesome improvement in health.

"Foods such as milk and yogurt are likely to be beneficial; others, such as cottage cheese, may adversely affect bone health. Of the few stronger-evidence studies of dairy foods and bone health, most had outcomes that were not significant."
American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. 2000;72:681-9.

"We found no evidence that higher intakes of milk or calcium from food sources reduce fracture incidence. Women who drank two or more glasses of milk per day had relative risks of 1.45 for hip fracture (95% confidence interval [CI] = 0.87, 2.43) and 1.05 for forearm fracture (95% CI = 0.88, 1.25) when compared with women consuming one glass or less per week. Likewise, higher intakes of total dietary calcium or calcium from dairy foods were not associated with decreased risk of hip or forearm fracture."
Milk, Dietary Calcium, and Bone Fractures in Women: A 12-Year Prospective Study.

Although the above reports paint a neutral picture for milk consumption at best, they do not address the truly unhealthy component of milk -- lactose, which is milk sugar. Many people are lactose intolerant in that it cannot be digested. Other sufferers go undiagnosed. Lactose stimulates insulin production for metabolism of the resulting blood glucose rush, and insulin has a book full of unhealthy side effects including diabetes, bowel diseases, cancer, and heart disease.

People think milk is a healthy food that builds strong bones because of the myths, distortions and lies published by the dairy industry. The top five nations with the highest consumption of milk have the highest level of osteoporosis, and the bottom five nations with the lowest consumption of milk have the lowest level of osteoporosis.

Commercial milk sold in supermarkets is fortified with synthetic vitamin D2 (secosterols ergocalciferol) that does not convert readily to natural vitamin D3 in the body. Natural vitamin D3 (cholicalciferol) is received from the sun or cod liver oil. Synthetic vitamin D2 in milk is not recommended.

Magnesium, Manganese and Lysine

Magnesium may be more important for healthy bones than calcium, and magnesium deficiencies are more common. Excessive calcium depletes magnesium from the body. Magnesium and manganese are minerals found in meat, fish, fowl, seafood, nuts, seeds, and vegetables. Magnesium is essential for bone health because it is one of the components of bone. It is also very important for heart health and the prevention of hypertension. Most people who live on processed foods are grossly deficient in this important nutrient. The result can be bone loss.

Magnesium has been ignored as a dietary requirement for healthy bones because milk does not contain magnesium. The dairy industry has promoted calcium to the extreme and kept silent about magnesium. In truth, milk is bad for the bones as proven in scientific studies above.

Magnesium is important to prevent osteoporosis, high blood pressure, heart disease, heart palpitations, diabetes, asthma, chronic bronchitis, migraine headaches, muscle cramps, premenstrual syndrome, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, depression, and other psychiatric disorders. People are commonly magnesium deficient, so this magnesium supplement is highly recommended. Take one Chelated Calcium-Magnesium 500/250 mg with a meal. Take one Magnesium Glycinate 400 200 mg three times a day with a meal. Break the magnesium glycinate in half. Take one half about one-quarter of the way through the meal and the other half at the three-quarter point to help distribute the magnesium. KAL Magnesium Glycinate 400 is the highly-absorbed form of magnesium chelated with amino acids that can be taken at twice the dosage as other brands without causing intestinal distress. Do not substitute another brand. Magnesium is essential for a healthy heart and cardiovascular system.
Essential Facts About Magnesium.
Magnesium-Deficiency Catastrophe: The Magnesium Web Site.

Manganese may also be important in bone growth. It has been shown that manganese deficiency significantly inhibits laying down of new bone tissue.

The amino acid lysine is also very important for bone health. The lysine transports the calcium to the bone for deposit. Supplement with 500 mg. of lysine per day.

Strontium is a Breakthrough in Bone Health

Strontium is the most abundant trace element in seawater and is essential for strong bones and cavity-free teeth. Strontium was shown to increase the rate of bone formation by 172% in a small study by Dr. Stanley C. Skoryna of McGill University in Montreal in 1985. The research team also performed a larger study on postmenopausal women. The patients in the strontium group had an increase in bone density in the lumbar averaging 14.4% and in the femoral neck averaging of 8.3%. This is considered to be an enormous improvement.

Strontium has been shown to rebuild bone that was being destroyed by metastatic bone cancer. This is great news for men with prostate cancer that has metastacised in the bones.

Strontium has been shown to reduce the incidence of cavities in the teeth. It also reduces the symptoms of osteoarthritis by improving bone density and improving cartilage metabolism in the joints.

Important - Supplementing the diet with strontium is advised for everyone including children.

NSI Strontium -- 680 mg per serving- 120 Capsules - Vitacost.

How Does NSI® Strontium work?
Strontium is a mineral naturally present in food, water, and in trace amounts in bones and teeth and should not be confused with the radioactive isotope strontium-90. It's chemically similar to calcium and is metabolized in the body in a nearly identical way.

Strontium may support bone formation and decrease bone resorption (or breakdown), thereby enhancing bone mineral density (BMD).

Naturally-occurring strontium is non-toxic and should not be taken simultaneously with calcium to improve its absorption. NSI® Strontium is made in kosher, vegetarian capsules.¹ ²

NSI® Strontium is better because it:

  • Delivers 680 mg of strontium in one two-capsule serving.

  • Is a safe, all-natural way to help you maintain bone health.

Phosphorus, Folic Acid, Boron, Zinc, and Silicon

Phosphorus and calcium are the components of hydroxyapatite, the primary salt that makes bone matrix hard and must be included in the diet. A proper balance of magnesium, calcium, and phosphorus should be maintained at all times to achieve bone health. Phosphorus is best obtained from animal products and is also found in good quantities in nuts, seeds, grains, and legumes. Vegetables and fruit are generally a lower source for phosphorus, but a deficiency is rare. Folic acid, boron, zinc and fluoride are also very important for good bone health. "And a recent study of Chinese men and women, who rarely if ever consume milk or dairy products yet have very little osteoporosis, suggests that drinking tea is a good way to maintain bone health. (14) Why? Among other things, tea is a good natural source of fluoride and flavonoids, which both improve bone density."

Boron supplementation can reduce loss of calcium by 40%, magnesium by 33%, and phosphorus in the urine. Boron builds stronger bones and improves hormone levels. Recommended level of supplemental boron is 6 to 18 mg per day.

Folic acid, along with vitamin B6 and B12, reduces the body concentrations of homocysteine, an intermediate in the conversion of the amino acid methionine to cysteine. Homocysteine has been associated with atherosclerosis (artery disease) and osteoporosis. Homocysteine most likely promotes atherosclerosis by directly damaging the artery and reducing the integrity of the vessel wall. In osteoporosis, elevated homocysteine levels lead to a defective bone matrix by interfering with the formation of proper collagen, the main protein in bone.

Caution:

Do not supplement the diet with methionine amino acid. The metabolism of methionine produces homocysteine, a sulfur-containing amino acid. It exists at a critical biochemical juncture between methionine metabolism and the biosynthesis of the amino acids cysteine and taurine. Homocysteine is used to build and repair tissues, but an excess of homocysteine has been shown to be a major factor in hardening and obstruction of the arteries, causing full-blown heart disease.

Silicon is normally sold as silica (silicon dioxide). It is absent in many multivitamin and mineral supplements, and 3 to 6 mg per day should be taken to prevent loss of bone density. It also assists in the development of better cartilage, joints, and blood vessels. Silicon may also reduce the amount of aluminum in brain cells and be beneficial in the prevention of Alzheimer's disease.

Carbohydrates cause Alzheimer's disease in mice studies.

A high fat, low carbohydrate diet improves Alzheimer's disease in mice.

"Mice with the mouse model of Alzheimer's disease show improvements in their condition when treated with a high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet. A report published today in the peer-reviewed, open access journal Nutrition and Metabolism, showed that a brain protein, amyloid-beta, which is an indicator of Alzheimer's disease, is reduced in mice on the so-called ketogenic diet."

"The report, by Samuel Henderson, from Accera, Inc, Colorado and colleagues from Belgium runs counter to previous studies suggesting a negative effect of fat on Alzheimer's disease."

Vitamin A, B6, B12, C, D, E, and K

Vitamin A helps to control the activity, distribution, and coordination of osteoblasts and osteoclasts (types of mineral deposits in bone) during development. Its deficiency results in a decreased rate of growth in the skeleton. Liver is an excellent source of vitamin A. Vitamin B12 may play a role in osteoblast activity, and a B12 deficiency is common in the elderly. It is found only in animal products but never in vegetables, fruit, legumes, nuts, seeds, or grains. Vitamin C deficiency leads to decreased protein collagen production, which retards bone growth and delays healing of fractures. Vegetables are a good source for vitamin C. Fruit juices also contain high levels of vitamin C but are not recommended due to their very high level of fructose (fruit sugar).

The body requires vitamin D for the formation and health of bone and the prevention of osteoporosis. Sunlight is an important source of vitamin D. Ultraviolet (UV) rays from sunlight trigger vitamin D synthesis in the skin. Vitamin D is also obtained from cold water fish such as salmon. An excellent source of natural vitamin D is Carlson's Lemon Flavored Cod Liver Oil, also an excellent source for Omega-3 essential fatty acids. Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin found in animal fats, and the risk of a deficiency increases in a low-fat diet. This is just another reason why a low-fat diet is not bone healthy.

Vitamin E and vitamin K have also been found to be important in the prevention of osteoporosis and bone loss. In 1995, doctors in Japan began treating osteoporosis patients with high levels of vitamin K with good success. Low-carbohydrate sources of vitamin E are dark green leafy vegetables, nuts, seeds, eggs, and animal organ meats. Vitamin E is found in large quantities in polyunsaturated vegetable oils, but the consumption of these oils is highly suspect as contributing to heart disease. Low-carbohydrate sources of vitamin K are dark green leafy vegetables, broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, eggs, and liver. However, vitamin K has been greatly over-emphasized by many nutritionists and doctors. The North American Plains Indians and Eskimos of centuries past ate a 100% meat and animal fat diet which had a low level of vitamin K, yet their remains show that they had awesome bones and teeth. The important conclusion here is to realize that protein builds awesome bones and teeth even when the availability of vitamin K is low. Eating green leafy vegetables while neglecting meat will not build strong bones as many nutritionists promise.

Giving pregnant women vitamin D could mean their babies grow stronger bones in later life.

Glucosamine and Chondroitin

Supplementing the with glucosamine sulfate and chondroitin sulfate is highly recommended. Care must be taken to find a manufacturer that does not add sugars of any kind to the capsules.  

Sodium Chloride in Table Salt

The sodium in common table salt has been shown to increase the excretion of calcium in the urine and is a proven contributor to osteoporosis and bone loss. You are literally peeing out your bones. The sodium also causes the loss of potassium which is critical in the prevention of osteoporosis, not because it is a component of bone, but because it is important in preventing the urinary loss of calcium and magnesium. Potassium is found in high amounts in fruits, vegetables, and meat, although the high consumption of fruit should be avoided to prevent a large intake of carbohydrates in the form of fructose. Dietary potassium can be easily supplemented with potassium chloride in the form of Morton's Salt Substitute, but an excess should be strictly avoided.

According to the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition (5), a greater potassium intake was significantly associated with greater bone mineral density (BMD) at all four sites for men and at three sites for women.

Hormones

Osteoporosis is a crippling disease that is both preventable and reversible. For many years the professional medical associations have been telling postmenopausal women that taking estrogen hormone replacement therapy (HRT) would prevent heart disease, breast cancer, and osteoporosis. Now we find it was all lies without any basis in science. In fact, HRT has now been proven to be the cause of breast cancer, which the professional medical associations have been forced to admit. Meanwhile, some doctors and researchers have proven that progesterone hormone therapy is the healthy approach to relieving menopause symptoms. Why is there little backing for it? The reason is simply because natural progesterone cream is not a patentable product and is sold over the counter at a very reasonable price. Dr. John R. Lee proved natural progesterone cream restores and builds bone in both men and women. This is important and should not be bypassed lightly.

Vitamin and Mineral Dosages

Dr. Atkins' Vita-Nutrient Solution: Nature's Answer To Drugs is the best book for determining the correct vitamin and mineral dosage for therapeutic (disease curing) effect, excessive dosage amounts, and normal recommendations. Dr. Atkins' Vita-Nutrient Solution discusses the vital function of vitamins and nutritional supplements and provides a list of diseases and complaints that the supplements can help cure or alleviate.

My personal vitamin, mineral, and supplement program by Kent R. Rieske.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Omega-3 fatty acids have been proven to increase bone density. The three most nutritionally-important omega-3 fatty acids are alpha-linolenic fatty acid (ALA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and docosahexaenoic fatty acid (DHA). Alpha-linolenic fatty acid is one of two fatty acids traditionally classified as "essential." The other fatty acid traditionally viewed as essential is an omega-6 fat called linoleic acid. These fatty acids have traditionally been classified as “essential” because the body is unable to manufacture them on its own and because they play a fundamental role in several physiological functions. As a result, we must be sure our diet contains sufficient amounts of both alpha-linolenic acid and linoleic acid.

The body needs essential omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Where are you getting these essential fats? Omega-3 fatty acids are NOT available in soy, cereals, fruit juices, fruits, or vegetables. Commercial foods are seriously lacking in essential omega-3 fatty acids. They are not included because of expense, lower shelf life, and because the fats tend to stick to the sides of the container. Even dog food is fortified with omega-3 fatty acids because dogs get sick if they are not added. Commercial foods also contain an excessive amount of omega-6 fatty acids from safflower, sunflower, soybean, corn, and similar nut, seed, and grain oils that are unhealthy.

Many commercial foods now contain a compound they claim is DHA docosahexaenoic omega-3 fatty acid. However, this is a form of DHA called crypthecodinium cohnii oil that is obtained from algae in a factory (yuck). It is not the same as natural DHA docosahexaenoic omega-3 fatty acid as found in unprocessed products like Carlson's Lemon Flavored Cod Liver Oil. Real DHA docosahexaenoic omega-3 fatty acid is not used in commercial foods because it reduces the shelf storage life, has a liquid oil form, sticks to the container, and is rejected by religious vegetarians who will not buy anything from animal sources. Cod liver oil contains both both forms of omega-3 fatty acids, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and docosahexaenoic fatty acid (DHA). Commercial foods do not contain eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) because they can't manufacture it in a dry powder form.

Cod Liver Oil: The Number One Superfood.

Omega-3 Fatty acids are positively associated with peak bone mineral density and bone mineral density and bone accrual in healthy men.

Do Omega-3 fatty acids prevent osteoporosis? -- Vanek and Connor.

Omega-6 Gamma-Linolenic Fatty Acid (GLA)

Supplement with omega-6 gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) by taking one borage oil capsule per day. The body does not produce essential fatty acids - they can only be ingested through food. GLA and omega-3 fatty acids together produce a second type of prostaglandins, called E1 series. This type of prostaglandin helps reduce inflammation and aids in digestion. Avoid all other vegetable omega-6 oils.

Weight-Bearing Exercises

Additional body weight causes the bone mass to increase in order to carry the additional load. However, the constant call for women to increase their weight-bearing exercises has not solved the osteoporosis epidemic, either because too few women do the exercises or the exercises are not achieving the goal. The idea that weight-bearing exercises will prevent osteoporosis is highly questionable. The body cannot carry the additional load if the body does not maintain adequate bone structure to carry the normal load. Adding weight may simply cause the fracture to occur sooner. Osteoporosis is not caused by a lack of weight-bearing exercises but rather by an insufficient diet.

The Latest News in Osteoporosis Prevention

Calcium pills 'raise heart risk' - BBC News - January 16, 2008.

Height Loss Link to Heart Disease- December 12, 2006.

"It's common knowledge that as we get older we get shorter. But UK researchers have now found that men who lose 3cm or more of height as they age have an increased risk of heart attack and death."

"It is as yet unclear why height loss may increase the risk of death and heart attacks, although osteoporosis - a disease characterised by loss of bone mass - was already known to increase the risk of death."

British doctors don't understand the connection between height loss and heart disease because they don't understand the true cause of either. This website clearly presents the scientific facts that both are caused by a high-carbohydrate diet that causes insulin resistance and hyperinsulinemia. The high-fat, high-cholesterol, high-protein and low-carbohydrate diet presented on this website prevents both osteoporosis and heart disease.

Good Calories, Bad Calories by Gary Taubes

This is a must-read book. Gary Taubes is an award-winning scientist who has specialized in exposing misleading, incorrect, or fraudulent science. His seven-year research in every science connected with the impact of nutrition on health shows us that almost everything we believe about the nature of a healthy diet is wrong. For decades we have been taught that fat is bad for us, carbohydrates are better, and that the key to a healthy weight is eating less and exercising more. Yet with more and more people acting on the advice, we have seen unprecedented epidemics of obesity and diabetes.

Taubes argues persuasively that the problem lies in refined carbohydrates (white flour, sugar, easily digested starches) via their dramatic effect on insulin -- the hormone that regulates fat accumulation -- and that the key to good health is the kind of calories we take in, not the number. There are good and bad calories. Taubes traces how the common assumption that carbohydrates are fattening was abandoned in the 1960s when fat and cholesterol were blamed for heart disease and then -- wrongly -- were seen as the causes of a host of other maladies, including cancer. He shows us how these unproven hypotheses were emphatically embraced by authorities in nutrition, public health, and clinical medicine in spite of how well-conceived clinical trials have consistently refuted them. He also documents the dietary trials of carbohydrate restriction which consistently show that the fewer carbohydrates we consume the leaner we will be.

With precise references to the most significant existing clinical studies, he convinces us that there is no compelling scientific evidence demonstrating that saturated fat and cholesterol cause heart disease; that salt causes high blood pressure; and that fiber is a necessary part of a healthy diet. Based on the evidence that does exist, he leads us to conclude that the only healthy way to lose weight and remain lean is to eat fewer carbohydrates or to change the type of carbohydrates we do eat and, for some of us, perhaps to eat virtually none at all.

Life Without Bread: How a Low-Carbohydrate Diet Can Save Your Life

Life Without Bread is an important addition to the growing body of literature on the benefits and importance of low-carb diet. Written by Christian Allan, Ph.D., and Wolfgang Lutz, M.D., the book is based on Dr. Lutz's experience using carbohydrate restricted diets with thousands of patients for more than 40 years. It is based on extensive research in the medical and scientific literature and provides ample references. The book presents a unified theory of how high (and even moderate) levels of dietary carbohydrate cause or exacerbate various health problems and how carbohydrate restriction can help people to recover from those problems.

The book Life Without Bread by Christian Allan, Ph.D. and Wolfgang Lutz, M.D. has a chapter on gastrointestinal diseases. Don't be mislead by the title to believe the cure is the simple elimination of bread. Mr. Lutz's older book is out of print but has essentially the same information. It may even contain more detail than his new book above. Fortunately, Chapter VII: Gastro-Intestinal Tract of the older book can be read online.
