About Osteoporosis and Bone Density
Shelly Manning’s eBook is packed full of information about your bone density right here, all 89 pages and for as little as $49.
Learn about the makeup of your bones. Their structure, different layers, your bone cells, and how they constantly remodel bone.
The Makeup and Structure of Your Bones
Shelley tells you exactly what happens when osteoporosis sets in, how, and why. Her infographics showing normal density through to osteoporosis.
Osteoporosis is not called a silent disease for no reason. There are no symptoms until you fracture something, sometimes after a minor fall or sudden movement.
Signs of Low Bone Density
However, there are about 6 telltale signs of low bone density to keep an eye out for namely:
- Receding gums
- Weaker grip strength
- Brittle or weak nails
- Stooped posture or loss of height
- Sudden back or neck pain
- Fractures after minor incidents
Unfortunately, by the time you’re diagnosed the disease is likely well and truly established. As a result, you can’t just turn a blind eye because your bones will become thinner, more brittle, and more breakable.
But, there is light at the end of the tunnel and I’ll tell you the good news in a bit. Just hang in there because it’s not all doom and gloom.
The Bone Density Solution
Help is on the way in the shape of “The Bone Density Solution” and Shelly Manning goes through the causes and risk factors in great detail. Stuff you really do need to know about.
Not surprisingly diet comes into it, ever heard the saying “you are what you eat”? Very true. Exercise plays a big part too and while you may turn your nose up at the idea of diet and exercise, believe me, it’s not so unpleasant.
I did mention didn’t I that you can still have occasional treats, yes you can!
Inflammatory and Processed Foods
You’ll learn so much about Inflammatory Foods and what they do to your gut and immune system. Get to know that Processed Foods are even worse in causing inflammation. Incidentally, you might be amazed to hear that they make up 70% of your diet, you and most other people.
Undoubtedly you’ve heard of these 3 additives known to raise a red flag.
- Sodium Nitrite
- Sodium Nitrate
- Sodium Phosphate
Shelly has created a table of foods listed with these preservatives alongside their healthier alternatives. Artificial colors are another offender, some having been banned in Europe. Moreover, they have been linked to tumors and cancer in animals.
While another table highlights the foods with artificial colors and healthier alternatives. A list of the most commonly used artificial colors masquerading under E numbers and alternative names.
High Fructose Corn Syrup and Refined Sugars
Cheap to produce, to prolong the shelf life of processed foods including yogurt, salad dressings, ice-cream, and sweet drinks.
Discover from yet another table what foods are high in artificial sweeteners, HFCS, and healthier alternatives.
The People of Ikaria
Do you know, the people of Ikaria know nothing of osteoporosis and they don’t need to? They probably never heard of preservatives.
Even if they have they don’t use them as everything is grown in organic and natural soil. People go on holidays to this Greek Island to experience their beautiful, simple, healthy diet.
As for Caffeine, well you’ll learn that coffee is one of the most heavily sprayed crops with pesticides. Again there is an alternative to that too, as you’ll see in that table.
Excess Salt is Bad for Bone Health
Yes, Shelly tackles everything you love, but you’ve always known that too much salt carries its own dangers. For your bones too. I’ll leave you to read her table of the undesirables and as usual the healthy alternatives.
Alcohol is Not Exempt
I’m sorry to say you can’t sit and relax too much with your favorite tipple after all the bad news about what you should and shouldn’t eat. But you can still enjoy a glass of wine as long as you take care, not to overdo the measure.
Dairy The Big Culprit
Dairy, the one you thought you couldn’t have enough of to keep your bones in tip-top shape. Well, you now have to think again. Milk is not the innocent beverage you were led to believe all your life.
Therefore, Shelly goes into quite a long, detailed, and informative definition of this one. I couldn’t possibly cover enough here to give you an idea as to why you should choose an alternative. Suffice it to say there are many alternatives.
Greens or Not
Next, and this is a sticky one because it’s going to burst your bubble if you love all your greens. But it is what it is. Exactly why Oxalates and Phytates matter here you can read for yourself. Who should avoid greens with oxalates and phytates? There are just 2 exceptions.
How you cook your greens that can make a difference. Don’t worry too much as Shelly has advice on the best ways to cook your greens. The book is priceless, I love it!
Traditional Osteoporosis Treatment
They are the most common bisphosphonates.
Nonetheless, they work and can put the brakes on bone loss. But the side effects are awful and your stomach doesn’t take kindly to them either. Because there are no long-term studies for these medications nobody knows how long it’s safe to take them for.
Moreover, if taken for too long you could experience a break in the upper thighbone plus osteonecrosis of the jaw. Affecting the healing of your jawbone…not pleasant. You can read on to discover a host of others, all with their own side effects.
Now we come to the best part.
Diet The Best Way to Build Strong Bones
You’re probably thinking of Calcium, yes, it’s very important although not on its own. Shelly explains how much calcium you need and what foods provide it.
Indeed if you choose to take calcium supplements you’ll have to balance with a combination of other very necessary essential nutrients that go hand in hand with calcium.
Otherwise, you could face the danger of heart attacks and stroke. And so it’s very important to keep that balance.
Proteins Plant Foods and Gut Health
Last but not least you can delve into the goodness of proteins from plant foods for gut health with probiotics, friendly bacteria and so much more.
Later on in the book come foods and supplements to fight inflammation, the correct exercises for muscle strength, Yoga, and Pilates, and lots besides.
Finally, home exercises and some for people with limited mobility.
