Creating Waves of Awareness

I would like to begin a discussion about the health of our bones. Mostly this concerns women, because a large percentage are diagnosed with osteopenia and osteoporosis. A recent NY Times Article has controversial information about how a person is diagnosed, on what scale, and who is providing these ratings and the drugs to supposedly improve a women's bone density.

I would like to hear opinions about this issue. It is certainly true that as we age there is bone loss. We also know that exercise and vitamin D assist the body in building bones.

I would like to learn about the role of Calcium [calc carb] with regard to homeopathy and homeopathic remedies. We know young children often need calc carb or calc phos for the growth process.

One of the issues regarding Osteoporosis is that usually there are no symptoms and that´s why the bone loss has often started without the person has noticed, until she/he goes to a DXA x-ray for diagnosis.

Have you heard of this article by Amy Norton

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - A computer program that analyzes routine dental X-rays could offer a simple, cheap way to detect the bone-thinning disease osteoporosis, new research suggests.
British researchers found that a software program they developed was able to spot signs of declining bone density in dental X-rays of the lower jaw -- a potential sign of osteoporosis.

The findings, they report, suggest that routine dental X-rays could provide an inexpensive way to provide wide screening of older adults for osteoporosis. Those with signs of bone thinning in the jaw could be referred for more expensive osteoporosis testing.

In the U.S., the Preventive Services Task Force recommends that all women age 65 or older be screened for osteoporosis -- the "gold standard" for screening is a relatively expensive test called dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA). Medicare will pay for this test every two years.
In the UK, the national health system currently has no program for osteoporosis screening.

That means many people with the disease -- most often older women -- won't know they have it until they suffer a fracture, said Dr. Hugh Devlin of the University of Manchester, the lead author on the new study.

The study findings, published online in the journal Bone, are based on bone X-rays of 652 European women between the ages of 45 and 70. All of the women underwent DXA, as well as panoramic dental X-rays, which show the whole jaw.

The DXA tests found osteoporosis in the hip or spine in 140 women. Analysis of dental X-rays picked up more than half of these cases, the researchers found.

More work is needed before dental X-rays become part of osteoporosis screening, Devlin said. "We want to find out the attitude of patients and doctors to this new role of dentists identifying patients they suspect of being at high risk of osteoporosis," he noted.
The next step, according to Devlin, will be for an X-ray equipment company to take to the idea and integrate the software into its products.
It is true that mostly women are effected with Osteoporosis.. I would like to know if more intake of calcium can prevent this. If yes, at what form? Is this necessary to intake calcium in the form of medicines or milk or milk products can also serve the purpose? I would also like to know at what age we should start adding more calcium into our diet?

Hi Merry
you posted:"Is this necessary to intake calcium in the form of medicines or milk or milk products can also serve the purpose? "
My reply; Calcium supplements are dangerous to the body it causes a buildup of deposite in the kidneys. Milk is useless and good for no one see link
Not Milk
No Milk
You can get more calcium from just eating broccolli veggies.
Avoiding any allopathic meds that have Fluoride Yes that includes antibiotics/toothpaste/fluoride water!
see links;
toxic health effects,massive database on this toxin that causes boneloss

What are the long-term effects of ingesting fluoride on our bones?
Fluoride is a bioaccumulator and is toxic to bones

The results of more than five epidemiological studies indicate increased hip fractures in both naturally and artificially fluoridated areas. The incidence of hip fracture is also increasing more rapidly than can be accounted for by aging of the population. There are numerous studies which undeniably prove that fluoride's cumulative effect on bone is devastating. It is well known that chronic ingestion of fluoride can cause osteofluorosis or skeletal fluorosis (crippling bone disease). This evidence has been reported in at least nine studies from five countries (contrary to promoters' denials, this occurs even at relatively "low" water fluoride levels). Moreover, according to the World Health Organization, individuals consuming between 2.0 - 8.0 mg of fluoride/day (2-8 litres of fluoridated water), can develop the pre-clinical symptoms of skeletal fluorosis (arthritis-like symptoms). As recently reported by the U.S. PHS, many women living in fluoridated communities are now ingesting up to 6.6 mg of fluoride per day, a crippling dose for some if maintained (see fluoride.htm and skeletal.htm for more info and chart on daily fluoride intakes).

It is widely recognised that fluoride "therapy" for osteoporosis adds mass to bones but produces inferior bone -- at least seven studies found structural abnormalities or mineralization defects. In short, the biomechanical competence of the skeleton may be compromised because the tensile (elasticity) strength of bone is sacrificed. These studies not only show that fluoride may cause increased skeletal fragility (more non-vertebral fractures such as hip), but that it can lead to osteomalacia (another bone disease). The relevance to fluoridation is:

short-term high-dose fluoride studies show the same amount of fluoride accumulates in the bones of osteoporosis patients as would be found in some people who are chronically exposed to long-term "low" doses of fluoride (such as in fluoridated areas). People with renal insufficiency, for example, can incorporate four times more fluoride into bone than an average healthy individual and would therefore be more susceptible to the long-term effects of drinking "optimally" fluoridated water than the average individual (see Toxicological Profile For Fluorides, Hydrogen Fluoride, and Fluorine, by the U.S. Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry).

Evidence of more bone damage is seen in a NJ Department of Health study, a U.S. National Cancer Institute study, a rodent study by the U.S. National Toxicology Program (NTP), and a Polish study which examined the bones of children with dental fluorosis using new radiographic techniques. The two epidemiological studies found increased osteosarcoma rates in young men in fluoridated areas. Osteosarcoma is a rare bone cancer which mostly originates in the growing end of bones. It is more prevalent among young males 10-19 years of age and seems to occur 1.4 times more often in males than in females. Girls are at risk at an earlier age because their adolescent growth spurt occurs before that of boys. The NTP animal study found dose-related occurrences of osteosarcomas in male rats. Polish scientists discovered bone abnormalities in male children with fluorosis. How much evidence must accumulate before authorities here acknowledge what many foreign scientists have already done years ago -- fluoride is one of the most bone-seeking elements known to man and long-term ingestion is toxic to bones even in the so-called "low" doses.

I,ve found adding almond meal much more effective than calcium suppliments. I,ve noticed clients with calcium spurs mostly have been taking calcium suppliments. Now I use Calc fleur to help increase bone density and in older women if its suitable natural progesterone cream helps with this problem.

You give the required constitutional remedy that would prevent bone resorption;
more than Calc carb, Calc. ph 6C would help maintain bone density.

The attached PDF from American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, would throw a light on dietary calcium.
Thank you for providing this important document.
Bone density,osteoporosisetc depends on lots of factors, from age to the food to exercise, hormonal problem etc.calc flour, calc phos has found useful in preventing osteoporosis in low potency. But assistence is more if constitutional medicines are given along with these kind of medicines.THYROIDINUM found to be effective in my experience of treating osteogenesis imperfecta
