Even though this post is occurring on the last days of May, remember it is never too late to take care of your bone health.

    Thanks for all your great information ! I also love what rebel pharmacist, Ben Fuchs says about osteoporosis (all disease is cell disease and most cell disease is related to inflammation and what we eat). I’ve also just started taking non prescription bioidentical hormones (after looking at Clinical Nurse Specialist and author, Corinne Peachment’s website). The TINY amount I use has completely stopped my hot flashes. HOORAY !!!!

    Major drug therapies now exist for treating osteoporosis.

    There are two types of drugs used to treat osteoporosis:

    – Antiresorptive Drugs. Antiresorptives include bisphosphonates, hormone replacement therapy, SERMs, and calcitonin. Bisphosphonates are the standard drugs used for osteoporosis. These drugs block resorption (bone break down) and so slow the rate of bone remodeling, but they cannot rebuild bone. In fact, because resorption and reformation occur naturally as a continuous process, blocking resorption may eventually also reduce bone formation.

    Menopause is a naturally occurring event in the life of middle aged women. Defined as a state of the uterus no longer producing menstrual flows, such phase happens due to the permanent cessation of the primary functions of the ovaries.
