OSTEOPOROSIS: AN EXAMINATION OF THE CONDITION
If you have had a Bone Density test utilizing the latest advances in DXA technology, which can give accurate results and according to the classification system developed by the World Health Organization, and your T- Score was below -2.5, this has put you in a statistical category that shows you should be VERY concerned with your bone density. The World Health Organization states that a T-Score of anything below -2.5 is in the range of "Osteoporosis." This puts you at HIGH risk for bone fractures, which could compromise your quality of life and could lead to other complications. We recommend that you take some proactive measures that will not only stop further bone density loss, but may actually improve your bone density and strength.
Strong, normal bone (above); Bone weakened by osteoporosis (below)
The following recommendations are based on research done by the National Osteoporosis Foundation. NWC Naturals® has outlined the following three-prong, natural approach to help you improve your bone health.
Calcium is essential for healthy bones. It is very important to increase calcium intake by eating foods that are high in calcium. We also recommend that you avoid foods or eating habits that deplete calcium, including:
- Carbonated Beverages of Any Kind
- High Protein Diets
- Prescription Drugs
- High Fat Diets
- Drinking Alcohol
- Table Salt
- Junk Foods High in Preservatives
- White Sugar
- White Flour
- Caffinated foods
The following is a list of the foods that contain high amounts of calcium. You should make a conscious effort to include 800 milligrams of calcium from these foods every day, in addition to the calcium you may already be getting from other foods.
|Food Item||Calcium Content||Food Item||Calcium Content|
Low fat 1 cup
|Skim milk 2%
|70 mg||Swiss Cheese
|120 mg||Total-Nutrition Program™||333 mg|
Perform only low-impact aerobic exercises, 3 to 4 times a week for 30 minutes and a strength-training program, 3 times a week for 30 minutes. Working with a personal trainer is highly recommended for your resistance training. (DO NOT perform high-impact exercises at all)
