I was diagnosed with osteopenia a while back but it has
(because I did nothing) turned to osteopenia.
My physician told me I need to take some drug which I hear can make you loose all of your teeth!! Holy cow!
I said no and went to another MD.
This was a female MD who her self had osteoporosis .
She advised me to change my diet - get a healthy diet with lots of greens and yogurts and kefir etc .
She said onions are great to strengthen bones too.
She also told me to get a weighted vest by a c. called nyknyc
that makes weight vests for women with osteoporosis .
She uses the nyk vest and recommends it to all patients who need to get stronger bones . She said - if you strengthen muscles that the muscles is attached to bone so when you work muscle it "tugs" on bone which signals the bone to grown stronger and to make more bone cells.
I thought it sounds logical so I am following her advice and
I am now after a few months of doing this PAIN FREE.
She by the way will not take any drug she said they can cause very harmful effects like broken bones loss of teeth and loss of jaw bone !! necrosis of the jaw . she said she would not take the drugs if you paid her . She is a good doctor and an honest one she is not a drug pusher and she really wants me to get well- which I am.
