: I have Oseopinea and Osteoporosis and my doctor started me on Fosomax. I am afraid to take it, or any
: other meds because of all the side effects. He told me that there are a lot of women who are refusing to
: take them also and they are going the "natural" route. This includes soy supplements and food, exercise
: and I do not know what else. Has anyone tried to go the "soy" way? The only things I can find on the web
: about using soy make it sound as though it is the answer, however, everything I read is also coming from
: the people who are selling it. I would like to find an unbiased opinion. Thanks!
I know a very little about soy but what I know is wonderful! Even if it does not help the osteoporosis, it can prevent breast cancer! The free radicals that cause breast cancer will attach to the soy which binds them up and keeps them from attaching to breast tissue and causing cancer. (this info was on our local news one nite.) You may want to check your family history for osteo and make sure of the cause. In our family osteo is hereditary and that type is caused by a malfunction of the parathyroid glands. When the gland is removed the disorder is reversible!! My aunt had hers removed and is absorbing calcium normally into her bones! Best of luck, Kim Russell
