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: Immerse Yourself in the Full Healing Contemplation Here »

Although osteoporosis is usually considered a disease of women, 30% of osteoporosis fractures occur in men. It affects 75 million people in the US, Europe, and Japan, and causes 1.3 million fractures annually in the US alone. (1).

Osteoporosis-related hip fractures are fatal 20% of the time and produce permanent disability half of the time.  With such stats, it is highly beneficial to look at prevention through natural forms of calcium supplements. I’m going give you the recommendations from a couple of different sources, all of which are footnoted at the end of this post.

This is Part 2 of a 3 – Part Post; if you missed the post to assess your risk level, click the above series link. Part 3 will cover Natural Treatment to improve your bone density and minimize bone loss.

Here is a list of natural calcium supplements condensed from suggestions by Mother Nature.com. Use the link to read their full article.

1. Eat a handful of sesame seeds each morning
2. Drink almond milk morning and night, which is high in calcium. Vasant Lad, B.A.M.S., M.A.SC. suggests making your own by soaking ten almonds in a cup of warm water for 10 minutes, peeling them and mixing into a blender with 1 cup of cow, goat, or soya milk. Then add a pinch each of cardamom, ginger powder and saffron. You can also buy almond milk at stores such as Walmart.
3. A daily intake of dark green leafy vegetables, low-fat dairy products and sardines with bones are a natural calcium supplement suggested by Richard Gerson, Ph.D.
4. For a non-dairy calcium supplement, naturopathic physician Michael Murray, N.D. suggests juicing 3 kale leaves, 2 collard leaves, a handful of parsley, 3 carrots, 1 apple and 1/2 a green pepper. This provides 212 mgs calcium and 102 mgs magnesium, both necessary for good bone density.
5. Two standing yoga poses done once daily are good exercise for maintaining bone density, called the mountain and the tree, as suggested by Stephen A. Nezezon, M.D. A word of caution – elderly and advanced osteoporsis patients should not do the tree pose. Immerse Yourself in the Full Healing Contemplation Here »
