There are more options than just calcium supplements to increase your bone density even after you become aware of your osteoporosis.

Let’s look at the options available for natural osteoporosis treatment suggested by 3 well-known authorities in the medical field including a personal program to build your bone density.

Here is a list of a daily regime of supplements suggested by David Edelberg, M.D., medical director of the American Holistic Center/Chicago.

-1,200 mg of calcium
-800 mg of magnesium
-10 mg of zinc
-1 mg of copper
-1,000 mg of vitamin C
-200 IU’s of vitamin D
-50 mg of vitamin B6
-1 mg of folic acid
-1 mg of silicon
-0.5 mg of boron
-5 mg of manganese

Dr. Edelberg says that these supplements can be purchased in most health food stores. You can even find some manufacturers which provide all of these supplements in one capsule. (1)

Dr. John R. Lee’s work specifically with osteoporosis showed that benefits can be achieved independent of age, that osteoporosis reversal is a reality, and that the treatment program is safe, uncomplicated, and inexpensive.

Dr. Lee is world famous for his medical advancements in the realm of women’s health. Here is an excerpt of one of his studies:

Dr. John R. Lee studied 100 women patients in various stages of osteoporosis, ranging in age from 38 to 83. By adding a supplement with natural progesterone to a natural osteoporosis treatment program, he found bone density increased every year by 3-5% until it stabilized at the bone density levels expected for a 35-year old woman! All 100 women using the natural progesterone and osteoporosis treatment reversed their bone loss and grew new bone cells.
Also, the women who had the lowest bone density were the ones that increased bone density the fastest with this natural progesterone treatment! It is essential to note that Dr. Lee says the natural progesterone / osteoporosis treatment must include the proper diet, nutrients and exercise. (2)

Here is a brief excerpt of Dr. Lee’s Osteoporsis Treatment Program. For those of you seriously interested in the program, I would suggest that you use this link and print the full article to take to your doctor.

Vitamin D – 350-400 IU daily
Vitamin C – 2,000 mg per day in divided doses
Beta Carotene – 15 mg per day (25,000 IU)
Calcium – 800-1 000 mg per day by diet and/or supplements.
Estrogen – 0.3-0.625 mg per day 2 weeks per month (conjugated estrogen) unless contraindicated.
Progesterone – 3 percent cream, applied to skin twice daily the last 12 days of the monthly cycle; use 1/2-1/3 of a 1 oz. jar per month.
Emphasize leafy green vegetables in the diet.
Limit red meat and soft drinks to 3 or fewer per week.
Limit alcohol use — none, or no more than 1 drink every 2 weeks.
Exercise 20 minutes daily, or 1/2 hour 3 times per week.
No cigarettes.
Report any occurrence of vaginal bleeding. (3)

It is important to be aware that not all progesterone is equally safe or effective, even among those claiming to be “natural.” You can read about it on Dr. Lee’s official site. You can also use the search box on Dr. Lee’s official site for more info on osteoporosis or other women’s health issues.

    Just an FYI, the Better Bones program from Women to Women is now on its own… (though the links you have up still click through). It looks like a good program, here are a few other articles that I think capture what Better Bones is about…
