Q & A

  • What are the three main aspects to focus on for natural bone health improvement?

    -The three main aspects to focus on for natural bone health improvement are: 1) Strengthening your bones safely without the dangers of high dose calcium, 2) Understanding the long-term effects of regular high-dose calcium supplements and what to take instead for optimal bone health, and 3) Incorporating lifestyle changes and nutritional approaches that support bone health.

  • Why is sugar considered more harmful than salt when it comes to bone health?

    -Sugar is considered more harmful than salt for bone health because it increases inflammation, creates sensitivity to insulin, and increases acid amounts inside the kidneys. This leads to reduced calcium intake and blocks the absorption of nutrients and key minerals into the body. Additionally, sugar promotes the excretion of calcium, making it a significant problem for bone health.

  • What role does pH level play in maintaining bone health?

    -pH level is crucial in maintaining bone health because acidity in the body lowers the amount of calcium in the bones. The body uses alkaline minerals, like calcium, to buffer and neutralize acidity. Consuming foods that help maintain a healthy pH level can prevent the loss of calcium from bones, thus supporting overall bone health.

  • What are some physical activities recommended for improving bone health?

    -Rebounding on a mini trampoline, vibration therapy, and weight training are some of the physical activities recommended for improving bone health. These activities help increase bone formation, decrease bone resorption, and enhance overall bone density.

  • How can posture be improved and why is it important for bone health?

    -Posture can be improved through the use of postural exercises and support tools like spinal molding rolls. Good posture is important for bone health because poor posture can lead to increased bone loss and a higher risk of fractures, especially in conditions like osteoporosis and osteopenia.

  • What minerals and vitamins are particularly important for bone health?

    -Calcium, boron, copper, magnesium, zinc, vitamin D, vitamin K2, vitamin C, and vitamin E are particularly important for bone health. These nutrients play key roles in bone formation, maintenance, and ensuring proper calcium absorption and utilization in the body.

  • What are the two herbs mentioned in the script that are beneficial for bone health?

    -The two herbs mentioned are winged tree bind and horseradish leaf. Winged tree bind is effective for bone healing and new bone formation, while horseradish leaf is useful for natural solutions to osteoporosis, especially for those taking medications that can affect bone density.

  • How can dietary changes help prevent or combat osteoporosis and osteopenia?

    -Dietary changes can help prevent or combat osteoporosis and osteopenia by lowering sugar and carbohydrate intake, increasing alkaline-forming foods, and ensuring adequate intake of essential minerals and vitamins that support bone health. A balanced diet with these considerations can significantly contribute to stronger bones and reduced risk of bone-related conditions.

  • What is the recommended daily intake of calcium and why?

    -The recommended daily intake of calcium should not exceed 600 milligrams, with a more conservative approach being 75 to 100 milligrams when supplementing. This is to prevent potential health risks such as arterial calcification and to ensure that the body can effectively absorb and utilize the calcium from dietary sources.

  • How does vibration therapy work for bone health?

    -Vibration therapy works for bone health by aligning the frequency of muscles, ligaments, and bones to vibrate at the same frequency. This helps mold and improve the overall bone density. The therapy was initially developed by NASA to combat bone loss in astronauts and has since been adapted for use in various clinical settings.

  • What are the key takeaways from the script for someone looking to improve their bone health naturally?

    -The key takeaways include focusing on a sugar-lowering and alkaline-based diet, engaging in physical activities like rebounding and vibration therapy, maintaining proper posture, and ensuring adequate intake of essential minerals and vitamins. Additionally, considering the use of certain herbs like winged tree bind and horseradish leaf can offer natural solutions for improved bone health.

play00:00

okay so first we want to talk about

play00:02

everyone everyone needs to know every

play00:04

single person when it comes to combating

play00:07

osteoporosis osteopenia what can we

play00:10

naturally do

play00:12

to really

play00:13

strengthen the bones

play00:16

reduce bone loss and prevent it

play00:18

especially as we get older especially as

play00:21

you know from a woman's perspective

play00:23

going through menopause

play00:24

it's a trying time and it leads to a lot

play00:26

of falls a lot of injuries

play00:29

shortening loss of heights a lot of

play00:31

issues down the road so what can we do

play00:33

naturally so we're going to go through

play00:34

three things that you're going to learn

play00:36

okay number one is strengthen your bones

play00:39

safely

play00:40

it's going to be very important without

play00:41

the dangers of high dose calcium i'm

play00:43

going to show you some

play00:45

targeted amounts we should be using

play00:47

and

play00:48

avoiding arterial calcification number

play00:51

two

play00:52

we're going to go through the long-term

play00:53

effects of regular high-dose calcium

play00:56

supplements what they could lead to from

play00:58

a calcification of the artery standpoint

play01:00

and then what you should be taking

play01:02

instead to optimally support your bone

play01:04

health and combat the diseases of

play01:07

osteopenia

play01:08

and osteoporosis so let's dive into this

play01:11

from a perspective of bone health i

play01:13

think there's seven keys that we really

play01:15

want to focus on and so i have my notes

play01:17

here so you can kind of follow along and

play01:19

give you an overview of the main focus

play01:21

is if you are struggling with bone

play01:23

health what do we need to be looking at

play01:25

and right out of the gates we've got to

play01:26

go to your plate sugar not salt and salt

play01:30

is one that usually gets the bad wrap

play01:32

for this but sugar is the main focus

play01:34

here when it comes to bone health now

play01:37

salt

play01:38

is usually the culprit and is usually

play01:40

the one to blame because there is

play01:43

so much of the mineral of calcium and

play01:46

the minerals salts

play01:48

stored in your body up to 99 of it is

play01:51

stored in the bone

play01:53

and so salt has been blamed for leading

play01:55

to calcium loss but it's actually sugar

play01:58

that is increasing inflammation that is

play02:01

creating sensitivity to insulin that is

play02:05

increasing your acid amounts inside of

play02:08

your kidneys and reducing calcium intake

play02:11

altogether because it's blocking not

play02:13

only does it not contain nutrition but

play02:15

it's actually blocking

play02:17

nutrients and key minerals from being

play02:18

absorbed into your body and it's

play02:20

creating increased excretion of the

play02:23

calcium that you do eat

play02:25

out of your body so sugar becomes a

play02:27

massive problem from the absorption of

play02:30

calcium

play02:31

the blocking of it

play02:33

as well as it pushes it out of the

play02:35

system so if we want to have a

play02:37

bone-friendly

play02:38

lifestyle the nutritional approach we're

play02:40

going to want to take is one that is

play02:42

focused on lowering the amount of sugars

play02:44

that we're taking in lowering the amount

play02:46

of carbohydrates that we take in salt on

play02:48

the other hand can be taken in a

play02:50

negative manner if it's processed salt

play02:52

we want to really focus on sea salts sea

play02:55

salts are going to be very bone friendly

play02:56

providing the bodies for minerals and

play02:59

most people are lacking proper minerals

play03:01

and lacking proper sea salt in their

play03:02

body and get way too much processed salt

play03:04

so it's this combo when we clean up our

play03:06

eating and go away from processed foods

play03:08

we not only lower the sugar but we also

play03:10

start to clean up the salt so number one

play03:12

out of the gates is the foods we're

play03:13

eating for bone health must be focused

play03:15

on lowering the sugar content there's

play03:18

some great links and great resources

play03:19

that we have

play03:21

right here to be able to understand a

play03:23

food list that simply breaks down

play03:25

there's one in my book there's a lot of

play03:27

resources around what we put out on how

play03:29

do we start to live out a lifestyle that

play03:32

eats that way

play03:33

number two is ph really got to talk to

play03:35

this because acidity in the body is

play03:38

going to lower the amount of calcium in

play03:41

the bones so to prevent accumulation

play03:44

of acid in the body and the

play03:47

progressively increasing degrees of

play03:50

the acid that's produced when we do

play03:53

consume a lot of sugar the body has

play03:56

multiple systems to buffer this and to

play03:58

slow it down and to lessen the amount of

play04:00

acid that builds up in the body so we

play04:04

eat very acidic we eat a lot of

play04:05

processed foods

play04:07

acid builds up in the system one of the

play04:09

ways the body lowers that acidity is the

play04:13

bone because it contains large

play04:15

quantities of the salts that we just

play04:18

talked about the salts are alkaline like

play04:20

calcium and so what happens is it pulls

play04:23

it out of the bone

play04:25

to neutralize the acidity

play04:27

in your body

play04:28

so if we want to be proactive

play04:31

with bone health

play04:33

or

play04:33

lifestyle changes to combat osteoporosis

play04:36

or osteopenia we better be thinking

play04:38

about the ph levels of our body there's

play04:40

some great foods that you can be using

play04:43

that help the ph of your body my

play04:46

favorites spinach can easily put that

play04:48

into a smoothie cucumbers i always had

play04:51

it in my fridge where you have cucumbers

play04:53

and they're soaked in organic vinegar

play04:55

used a little monk fruit to make them

play04:57

taste a little sweeter it's a great way

play04:58

to get cucumber and onion into your diet

play05:01

cucumbers with hummus regularly they're

play05:04

tens

play05:05

on the ph scale your body sits around

play05:08

seven acidity is gonna be below seven

play05:11

avocados grapefruits come in around

play05:13

eights so those are great options

play05:16

beets are right around that range even

play05:18

lemons

play05:19

very acidic on the outside but once

play05:22

metabolized

play05:24

ends up being slightly over a seven

play05:26

so fruits and vegetables you can think a

play05:29

lot of those are gonna drive your ph up

play05:31

you can drink some high alkaline water

play05:34

if you're going through a detox period

play05:36

of time i recommend it but on a daily

play05:38

basis to constantly be putting in 9 or

play05:40

10 ph water

play05:42

it's not quite that simple we want to

play05:44

make sure we're eating it not

play05:45

fabricating it in nature usually spring

play05:48

water for example is going to be right

play05:50

around that sweet spot the way god made

play05:52

it of a seven maybe a little bit higher

play05:54

so we want our drinks to be on more of

play05:56

the alkaline side when it comes to bone

play05:59

density but don't constantly put in

play06:01

really high alkaline drinks focus on the

play06:03

foods and there's some great ones out

play06:04

there so we've got sugar we've got the

play06:07

ph

play06:08

then we go physical resistance and

play06:09

there's some great great ways outside of

play06:12

just hitting the gym that you can really

play06:15

bolster

play06:16

your bone health and my favorite right

play06:17

out of the gates is rebounding and the

play06:19

reason this is my favorite because in

play06:21

the 1930s

play06:23

exercising on a mini trampoline

play06:26

was created

play06:28

where all great things are created

play06:31

iowa

play06:33

iowa

play06:34

so in the 1930s this is where this

play06:35

concept came up and they showed

play06:37

it increased bone formation and it

play06:40

decreased bone resorption

play06:43

so it improved these health-related

play06:46

benefits

play06:47

of bone density formation and so we want

play06:51

that to be you know like we're not

play06:52

losing bone wanna be building bone it's

play06:54

also helping with balance which is the

play06:56

big problem a lot of times i did my

play06:58

entire thesis in doctor at school on

play07:02

falls and how costly they are for a

play07:05

person's life for our economy for

play07:08

everyone involved so muscular leg

play07:11

strength so rebounding is a great option

play07:13

mini trampoline

play07:14

we have entire protocols and videos on

play07:16

how you can really put a whole regimen

play07:19

together on how to do this

play07:21

vibration therapy is number two i've

play07:23

used this clinically for years now this

play07:25

was initially developed nasa was

play07:27

involved with it it was part of the

play07:29

space program

play07:31

they found that each month that was

play07:33

spent in space each week each day there

play07:36

was significant bone loss happening

play07:39

and it was to the tune of one to two

play07:41

percent per month because there was no

play07:43

gravity on these astronauts so to combat

play07:46

it they found that they could regain the

play07:49

bone loss

play07:50

by standing on a lightly vibrating plate

play07:54

for 10 minutes a day and you don't even

play07:56

have to do that much even two to five

play07:58

minutes so i have one at my house

play08:00

the frequency of it really matters you

play08:02

don't want it to be too high you don't

play08:03

want it to be too low

play08:05

13 is the megahertz the hertz that it

play08:08

should vibrate and be frequent at now if

play08:10

it's below that you don't get as much

play08:12

benefit but you still get benefit i

play08:14

would never recommend going higher than

play08:16

that because the vibration can be

play08:18

damaging it but what we're doing is

play08:20

we're aligning the frequency of your

play08:22

muscles your ligaments and your bones to

play08:24

all vibrate at the same frequency and

play08:27

they can be molded they can be helped so

play08:28

a lot of people will stretch while on

play08:30

these

play08:31

some people will do postural exercises

play08:33

while on these but it is going to help

play08:35

that bone density so there's two of my

play08:36

favorites that a lot of people don't

play08:38

talk about then of course there is

play08:39

weight training and study studies show

play08:41

that strength training over a period of

play08:43

time can help prevent bone loss and may

play08:45

even be helpful to building new bones so

play08:47

just adding in some light

play08:49

weights

play08:50

maybe you're doing our 10 minute

play08:51

workouts that we regularly put together

play08:53

you could just be adding some light

play08:54

weights to that but adding in weight

play08:56

training is definitely important from a

play08:57

bone density standpoint so i just

play08:59

mentioned it but let's roll right into

play09:00

number four which is posture

play09:03

posture is very underrated when it comes

play09:05

to osteoporosis osteopenia but you can

play09:08

see it as an outcome and when you think

play09:10

osteoporosis you think osteopenia you're

play09:12

thinking of this person

play09:14

hunched over the roundedness in their

play09:16

back they're

play09:18

coming forward this way they're losing

play09:20

the support of the bones the bones are

play09:22

softening

play09:24

compression fractures can happen to the

play09:26

actual skeleton so there's a major risk

play09:28

here expediates the bone loss and

play09:31

increases the fracture risk

play09:34

so there's a really easy way to start

play09:35

combating this

play09:37

one sit up straight your mother was

play09:39

right use postural exercises use um

play09:42

things that nudge you the right

play09:43

direction and i'm actually grabbing it

play09:44

off of my seat because i'm using it

play09:46

while we talk so this is a posture

play09:48

support that i have on my chair

play09:51

at my desk and this pushes my low back

play09:55

forward and makes me sit upright while

play09:58

i'm working so i don't end up doing

play10:01

one of these while i'm leaning forward

play10:03

typing it makes me sit in a better

play10:06

posture so that's number one is look at

play10:07

your workstation

play10:09

or even your car

play10:10

simple molding roll is a resource that

play10:12

we have on our store that you can use

play10:15

now what i love about this is it doubles

play10:17

up okay the reason there's a strap on

play10:19

here is so it'll fit around your seat

play10:22

but it'll also fit around your chair at

play10:24

work now this won't matter at night time

play10:27

but you can take these home or get two

play10:28

sets of them and there's a thicker

play10:31

bigger roll this is a three inch

play10:33

diameter

play10:34

this is perfect for the curve in your

play10:37

neck

play10:38

so spinal molding is a concept that i

play10:40

would highly encourage if you have a

play10:42

toothbrush

play10:44

if you have floss at your house

play10:47

then what do you have

play10:49

to help the other bones of your body

play10:52

specifically your spine and so this is

play10:54

like my toothbrush and floss so at

play10:56

nighttime i lay on these the three inch

play10:58

roll puts a 45 degree curve

play11:01

in the neck

play11:03

that's exactly the c shape it should be

play11:05

think the shape of a banana the nice

play11:07

curve if you lose the curve

play11:09

right then it flattens you have a

play11:11

smashed banana so if the three inch

play11:13

bigger roll is for the neck and then the

play11:15

two inch

play11:16

two and a half inch excuse me is for the

play11:18

lower back because that curves about 35

play11:20

degrees so it's just slightly less

play11:22

curved and these mold the ligaments of

play11:25

the spine they undo the bad posture you

play11:29

may have done that day

play11:31

so spinal molding such a simple concept

play11:34

to help protect

play11:35

i'm going to get my posture support back

play11:37

in there such a simple concept to

play11:39

protect ourselves from putting more

play11:41

pressure on the bones we're accelerating

play11:44

the bone loss in general

play11:46

now let's get into minerals vitamins

play11:48

this is where a lot of people want to

play11:49

jump to immediately especially calcium

play11:52

approximately 99 of your body's calcium

play11:55

is stored in your skeleton so we talked

play11:57

about this it's in the bones already

play11:58

however a review of 59 studies found

play12:02

that increasing calcium intake through

play12:05

supplements or even food sources

play12:08

resulted in a small

play12:10

but not a clinically meaningful

play12:12

improvement

play12:13

in the bone mass density so what that

play12:15

says is it's we can't handle bone

play12:18

density by simply throwing especially in

play12:20

a lot of cases

play12:21

toxic chalky white stuff into our system

play12:25

that's going to build up think a shower

play12:28

you don't want mold building up you

play12:30

don't want mildew building up you don't

play12:32

want calcium buildups

play12:34

you don't want that in your body either

play12:36

because it easily happens so there's

play12:38

very prominent research and studies

play12:40

showing that too much calcium over 600

play12:42

milligrams on a daily basis is going to

play12:45

lead to arterial calcification the

play12:47

calcium has to go somewhere and

play12:49

oftentimes we don't have the right

play12:50

balance of the minerals and the

play12:52

nutrients

play12:53

in order to absorb the calcium and get

play12:56

it where it needs to be 99 of it is in

play12:58

the skeleton we don't want it to end up

play13:00

in the arteries we don't want it to end

play13:02

up in the organs

play13:04

and this is what's commonly happening

play13:05

there's

play13:06

an explosion of arterial calcification

play13:09

right now and

play13:10

i believe one of the reasons is calcium

play13:13

is grossly

play13:14

over recommended i would focus on

play13:16

getting it from foods

play13:18

green foods are great sources broccoli

play13:21

is an excellent source of calcium

play13:23

collard greens spinach i just used a

play13:26

powder

play13:27

form of greens and it's literally

play13:29

sitting next to me here you can see it

play13:31

sitting in the bottom

play13:33

right there okay and those greens

play13:36

get me a excellent source of calcium

play13:38

collard greens because i don't normally

play13:40

have those for breakfast or lunch or

play13:42

even dinner um some of you do it does

play13:44

not i don't eat a lot of it or even you

play13:46

know broccoli spinach during the day

play13:48

you're able to get those greens in so

play13:50

calcium to speak to it no more than 600

play13:53

milligrams i would recommend

play13:55

when you're supplementing with it i

play13:57

would be closer to 75 to 100

play13:59

because if you're eating clean and

play14:01

following the other steps that we've

play14:03

already covered you're going to then be

play14:05

really getting a healthy dose in the

play14:07

food form that your body can use so

play14:09

let's go on some other really important

play14:11

uh minerals calcium is not the only

play14:14

player in the game boron

play14:16

is the next one

play14:17

boron is a trace mineral that's been

play14:19

found to play a critical role in bone

play14:21

growth and in its maintenance

play14:24

so it affects the use of these other

play14:26

minerals including calcium magnesium and

play14:30

the vitamins vitamin d vitamin a so

play14:33

it helps absorb them it helps them work

play14:35

better so if you're just taking a bunch

play14:37

of calcium you can see how that line of

play14:39

thinking that we've used for a lot of

play14:41

women especially over the last 30 years

play14:44

is very flawed a study on

play14:46

post-menopausal women found that taking

play14:48

one to three milligrams of boron per day

play14:51

significantly reduce the excretion of

play14:54

calcium and magnesium from the kidneys

play14:56

so it helps you utilize the calcium you

play14:59

are taking i wonder how many

play15:01

are just taking 1200 milligrams of

play15:03

calcium every day but don't have the

play15:05

proper other minerals to get it absorbed

play15:07

boron is one of those copper is another

play15:09

one now we don't want to overdo copper

play15:11

just like calcium but there is a link

play15:13

between low copper levels

play15:15

and low bone density measurements so we

play15:17

want to get a little bit of that in

play15:18

there so that everything works together

play15:20

magnesium is associated with uh adequate

play15:23

levels with benefits of bone density

play15:26

when you have enough of it magnesium is

play15:28

another great one one study in 51

play15:30

post-menopausal women found that 40

play15:32

percent of women with osteoporosis or

play15:35

with low bone density had low

play15:37

circulating magnesium levels we want to

play15:40

be getting three to four hundred

play15:41

milligrams of this per day i like to eat

play15:44

a chunk of it and then i spread it out

play15:46

amongst supplements i take it in my

play15:47

vitamin d supplement because vitamin d

play15:49

needs it in order to convert to be

play15:51

activated

play15:53

using it in nuts and seeds and beans

play15:57

black beans excellent source of

play15:59

magnesium so you really get this worked

play16:01

into your diet you can check out our

play16:02

other videos and resources to know what

play16:04

foods are high in magnesium

play16:07

zinc is the sixth mineral that's

play16:09

involved here it's important for bone

play16:10

growth and higher zinc levels have been

play16:12

linked to better bone density scores so

play16:14

we need all of these minerals to be

play16:16

working together all six of them with

play16:18

their vitamin counterparts now the big

play16:21

four

play16:22

when it comes to vitamins vitamin d is

play16:24

number one not only does it bolster your

play16:26

immune system but it is essential for

play16:29

bone health it plays a key role in the

play16:31

absorption of calcium and helps to

play16:34

regulate the turnover of bone properly

play16:36

in your body now it partners with its

play16:39

key partner k2 this is batman and robin

play16:42

in your body when it comes to immune

play16:43

health when it comes to calcium

play16:44

placement

play16:45

high doses of vitamin k2 are needed to

play16:48

prevent fractures especially in

play16:51

postmenopausal women or especially those

play16:53

with osteoporosis so vitamin d takes

play16:56

that calcium we talked about with the

play16:58

use of those minerals and shuttles it to

play17:00

the arteries k2 then picks it up and

play17:03

shuttles it to your bone

play17:05

so vitamin d and k2 very crucial not to

play17:08

be mistaken with k1 k1 is focused on

play17:12

blood clotting so i receive a lot of

play17:14

questions on people saying i can't take

play17:16

vitamin k because i'm on a blood thinner

play17:19

we're referring to vitamin k2 here which

play17:21

is for your health of your arteries and

play17:23

your heart is not involved

play17:26

like k1 is in blood clotting so it is

play17:29

typically very safe

play17:31

to take even if you're on a blood

play17:33

thinner you can always check with the

play17:34

pharmacist now number three

play17:37

i combine two of them together but more

play17:38

recently

play17:40

vitamin c and vitamin e these are the

play17:42

four

play17:43

uh three of the fat soluble vitamins d

play17:47

k2 and e and then c which is a water

play17:49

soluble vitamin and play important roles

play17:51

in preventing and in the natural

play17:53

solutions of osteoporosis because of

play17:56

their ability to increase bone density

play17:58

so we can't forget about those those are

play17:59

still very important vitamin c is a

play18:01

precursor to all the collagen in your

play18:03

body so to help your skin to help your

play18:05

hair help your nails that's where it is

play18:06

so we've worked our way through eating

play18:08

properly we want to lower the sugar

play18:10

levels we want to

play18:11

have our diet be more on the alkaline

play18:14

side with some fun ways for physical

play18:16

resistance including rebounding and

play18:18

vibration therapy to add on top of

play18:20

hitting the gym and doing some weight

play18:21

training postural support during the day

play18:24

and then spinal molding at night we've

play18:26

got six minerals that we really want to

play18:28

focus on we've got four vitamins that we

play18:30

really want to focus on and then there's

play18:32

two herbs that hands down uh

play18:35

overwhelmingly from the research are two

play18:37

that are very important when it comes to

play18:39

osteoporosis osteopenia the first one is

play18:41

called winged

play18:42

tree bind okay it is a very common

play18:46

medicinal plant actually used in

play18:49

thailand they use it all the time there

play18:51

it's very traditional in african or

play18:53

ayurvedic medicine now it can be used

play18:56

from everything from metabolic syndrome

play18:58

it supports decreasing swelling in the

play19:00

body but it is very effective at helping

play19:03

bones heal

play19:05

and new bone formation so wig winged

play19:07

tree bind has a very effective

play19:10

place when it comes to the health of our

play19:12

bones so that's one of the herbs that i

play19:14

love okay number two is horseradish leaf

play19:17

now this is not the spicy condiment

play19:20

that's often served it's delicious with

play19:22

steaks or a roast beef sandwich this is

play19:24

actually coming from the leaves of the

play19:26

moringa olafera tree all right and a

play19:30

major problem with osteoporosis is drugs

play19:34

causing osteoporosis this is the number

play19:37

one secondary cause of osteoporosis is

play19:40

taking a form of a steroid and so this

play19:42

could be in the form of you know

play19:43

something you're using for allergies or

play19:45

something you're using for hormones so a

play19:47

steroid so i saw this happen to my

play19:49

father actually um

play19:52

glucocorticoids there's multiple

play19:53

different ones that impact

play19:56

bone density levels they induce

play19:58

osteoporosis and they leave

play20:00

a susceptibility to fractures and so

play20:03

this is a huge cost

play20:05

on our economy this is a huge cost on

play20:07

people's lives because we're treating

play20:09

one thing and we're getting side effects

play20:11

from drugs

play20:12

causing other conditions

play20:14

so

play20:15

with all that said there's a lot of

play20:17

research being poured into right now

play20:19

because of how much adverse

play20:22

effects this has and how much high cost

play20:23

this has that using the moringa olafera

play20:27

which we're calling horseradish leaf is

play20:30

a very effective natural solution

play20:33

for the bone healing abilities

play20:35

especially for those that are taking

play20:36

those medications and if you're not on

play20:38

those medications it still delivers

play20:40

those benefits from the form of the leaf

play20:43

so we want these in a as clean forms as

play20:46

we can the wing tree bind and the

play20:47

horseradish leaf that's usually an

play20:49

organic form and those are great natural

play20:52

herbs my two favorites there are several

play20:53

out there but those have the best

play20:55

research behind them and actual studies

play20:57

behind them to show you

play20:59

for bone health so cleaning up the

play21:01

sugars if you need help with an eating

play21:03

plan we have a lot of resources for that

play21:06

you can check those below the ph

play21:09

of the system more towards alkalinity we

play21:12

also give guidance on that physical

play21:14

resistance

play21:15

there's you may check out some videos on

play21:17

rebounding and vibration training uh and

play21:19

then posture the spinal molding roles

play21:22

the minerals that need to be involved

play21:24

and the vitamins that are crucial so if

play21:26

you wonder how to get this all in your

play21:28

system there's links for that below so

play21:30

you can really

play21:31

have a good regimen when it comes to

play21:32

your bone health and be proactive

play21:34

with osteoporosis osteopenia and getting

play21:37

help there so check out those other

play21:39

videos those other resources that we

play21:40

have available for you and keep building

play21:42

and experiencing real health
