To successfully treat osteoporosis, you need to get rid of what is in the way and get what is missing. Let’s explore the full picture of the problem. The two main objectives are to improve the quality of digestion and increase the nutritional density of the diet.
Any person leads an active activity that requires energy. A significant expenditure of energy occurs during the digestion and assimilation of food. This is why you should not eat foods with a low nutritional density. For example, when you eat pasta, your body will not receive minerals, vitamins, fiber, and beneficial enzymes. In this case, a lot of energy will be spent on digesting such food, and in fact it could be used for other purposes. If you keep track of the nutritional value of the foods you eat daily, you will notice how much better you will feel. For those with osteoporosis, it is important to alkalize the internal environment of the body.
How to cure osteoporosis
This is due to the fact that in order to maintain the acid-base balance, the body must use buffer systems, which causes the leaching of calcium from the bone bone. No more than 30% of the total diet should be foods that help acidify the internal environment.
These products include:
- pork, beef, poultry;
- fish products;
- cereals (other than kinkwa);
- dried fruits treated with sulfur compounds;
- refined salt;
- sugary drinks and alcohol (beer).

High protein intake can cause health problems… The quality of the protein consumed is also important. A combination of protein and starch is undesirable. Thermal processing of food also hinders good assimilation of food.
Sugary drinks are not recommended to be consumed in large quantities, since they contain sugar and phosphorus, which cause acidification of the blood and the elimination of calcium from the body. Sugary drinks are especially harmful for children, as they slow down the growth of bone tissue, which is unacceptable for a growing body.
The importance of calcium and magnesium for the human body
Humanity has been misled for many years that dairy products are a source of calcium. But few people pay attention to the fact that in countries where dairy products are especially in demand, the population suffers from osteoporosis. And the reason for this is intolerance to casein (milk protein) or lactose. In addition, calcium in milk is not fully absorbed. The most useful dairy product is unsweetened yogurt, but not as a source of calcium, but as a source of favorable microflora.
Sources of calcium are:
- seeds and nuts;
- oysters, salmon, sardines;
Chlorella and Spirulina alkalize the body. Fermented soy foods help strengthen bones.
Calcium supplements should not be thoughtlessly consumed, as this is more likely to provoke heart disease than reduce the risk of osteoporosis.
The optimal calcium preparations that are well absorbed by the body are:
But the dosage of these drugs should be observed – the daily dose should not exceed 300-500 milligrams. To prevent osteoporosis, you need to control the amount of magnesium in the body, since its deficiency interferes with calcium metabolism. The optimal daily intake of magnesium is 600 milligrams.
In the case of taking thyroid hormones, calcium preparations should be taken no earlier than 4 hours after the hormones.

For the full development of bone tissue, minerals (copper, zinc, manganese, silicon, strontium) are needed. That is why it is necessary to enrich the diet with plant foods, and not food additives. The body also needs vitamins B6 and B12, which prevent an increase in homocysteine levels (a byproduct of protein metabolism), which provokes the development of osteoporosis. Vitamins must contain methylcobalamin and folates (not folic acid).
Osteoporosis is a problem for many women, so it is important to pay attention to the hormonal system of the female body. And with age, the situation worsens, especially during menopause.
Bone density is influenced not only by chemistry, but also by physics. Bone strength is negatively affected by a sedentary lifestyle. You can even recall the example of astronauts who, after returning to earth, can hardly walk normally, due to the loss of bone tissue. The solution to this problem is regular strength training.
Osteoporosis does not develop with age; the manifestation of the disease directly depends on the lifestyle. Therefore, try to eat right and exercise regularly, this is the only way to maintain health. published by econet.ru
