Osteoporosis is where the bones in your body become porous from mineral loss. The lack of bone density leads to bone weakness and a higher risk of fractures from fragile bones. There are a number of risk factors that are attributable to osteoporosis including, menopause, lack of Vitamin D, smoking, steroid use, chronic, excessive alcohol intake, lack of exercise, genetics and low intake of calcium-rich foods.
Recent scientific research is showing that although the risk factors can contribute to bone loss, there is one main root cause. It is an acidic body condition called acidosis. It is endemic in North America. It is caused by our poor diets and our dehydrated body condition.
Osteoporosis affects 1.5 million Canadians and 15 million Americans and those numbers are growing as our populations age.… Read the rest
Every day, hundreds of people have a bone density test and find out that they have thinning bones and are at risk of bone fractures. The early stage of bone loss is called osteopoenia. The more advanced stage is called osteoporosis.
When your body is acidic there are certain dynamics that happen and certain parts of the body that must be protected and kept within a certain range of pH, particularly the blood. When the blood comes dangerously close to the lower or acidic edge of its range of tolerance, a signal is given to the bones to release mineral to help the blood become more alkaline. With chronic acidity in the body, over time the bones release more and more mineral to keep the blood alive.… Read the rest
