I am 65 years old, and now the doctor informed me that I have osteosporosis, -2.5 They recommended prolia shot every 6 months, has anyone received it? I do not want to get it… I am very active for more than 25 years, please inform me about prolia.
I set out on my search, and what I learned and discovered not only shocked me, but it changed the entire course of my life. And as I learned all of this new information and put it into practice in my life I was rewarded with healing.
Now, looking back I can see clearly that the conditions my mom and dad suffered from could have definitely been helped by following the same program that reverses (cures) osteoporosis! It’s too late for them, but not too late for us!
My grandmother suffered a fractured hip after long term use of an osteoporosis tablet. At least that’s what the doctors told us. After the operation the doctors also changed her medication and now is taking calcium capsules and vitamin additives as well as the osteoporosis tablet.
Sometimes doctors prescribe medicines that are not really necessary, but are taken just be on the safe side!
For older adults at risk for falls and others concerned about osteoporosis, include activities that enhance balance, such as tai chi or yoga, at least twice a week.
Its Very interesting information

We have known for years that osteoporosis medications do not build high quality bone tissue. Osteoporosis societies continue to encourage vitamin D intake that surpasses the outdated RDI in order to facilitate calcium absorption. Japan emphasizes vitamin K2 to improve bone quality. And many women have found strontium citrate to be as effective as osteoporosis medication but without the side effects. Anyone seeking to end their use of bisphosphonates should consider a generic vitamin and mineral program at a fraction of the cost of medication.
Unfortunately, bisphosphonates are commonly prescribed in patients that do not necessarily need them.
