Osteoporosis, a normal process of aging, has been twisted into a disease by the marketing departments of the giant pharmaceutical companies. In doing so, they've turned their impossibly toxic bisphosphonate drugs into one of the most vigorous money making machines they've ever had. And make no mistake about this: Bisphosphonates are dangerous, debilitating, harmful, and essentially worthless. That's in spite of the hype. The drug companies spend millions convincing doctors and the public that the osteoporosis drugs currently being marketed so strenuously, are the silver bullet against the broken bones in the elderly, when in fact, these drugs merely exacerbate the problem. These drugs have been identified, time and again, as causing, not preventing, serious breaks and fractures. To make matters worse, these drugs are totally unnecessary in the prevention of thinning bones. Read this true story.
A TRUE STORY
In May of 2004, this 77 year old woman had a DEXA Scan. The results came back showing severe thinning of her bones, especially in the hips and thighs.; She was termed as being at great risk for breaks and fractures. Any mainstream physician would have written her a script for Fosamax without a second thought.
Instead, her alternative provider started her on a regimen of improved nutrition and daily intake of the Bone Maker! In addition, she was instructed to take two additional supplements. No prescriptions were required or issued.
She followed these instructions faithfully in the ensuing years. One evening in February 2010, at 83, on her way up to bed, she lost her footing at the top of their winding staircase. Head over heels she tumbled down the entire flight of hardwood steps, landing hard on the quarry tile floor below. She was dazed, bruised, cut, and disoriented, with a severe gash in her scalp. The family of course was horrified, expecting the worst. An ambulance was called and she was transported to the ER.
She required six stitches in her scalp. No broken bones were found! She was kept in the hospital under observation for three days. By then she was clamoring for release and no one could think of any more reasons for keeping her there. She's back home again in robust good health, and taking a little salt in her food now - this was the reason for her fall. She had been a fanatic about avoiding all salt (we do all need a little) and she had passed out momentarily at the head of the stairway.
