Fix Osteoporosis & Bone Spurs Naturally

Tips to prevent and reverse osteopenia, osteoporosis, and brittle bones and bone spurs
Bone health involves your blood acidity level far more than the amount of calcium you eat.
Your body’s ph level or how acidic or alkaline it is, is extremely important. All chemical reactions within the body need to occur at a specific ph level. If this doesn’t occur your bones will be affected and your overall health will be greatly reduced.
When your blood becomes too acidic, your body pulls calcium out of your bones and moves it to the blood. Calcium is alkaline which means it makes the blood less acidic. The more acidic your blood is the more calcium you lose from your bones. Over time this leads to osteopenia or osteoporosis.
A note on Bone Spurs:
When you have a lot of calcium that is pulled out of the bones and placed into the blood your body redeposits the calcium in areas of inflammation like arteries or joints. This is the cause of bone spurs, abnormal bone growths and arteriolosclerosis.
Tip 1: Reduce Carbs and Sugar
Ultimately our bones are becoming brittle because we are eating low fat high carb diets. Carbohydrates break down into sugars in the body. When you eat a diet high carbs or sugar the body becomes more acidic. This is because the breakdown of sugar into energy releases hydrogen ions which acidify the body.
Tip 2: Eat Fat
Turning fat to energy does not produce hydrogen ions and therefore doesn’t acidify the body.
Therefore, a diet higher in fat is better for your bones.
Eating good quality fats such as avocado oil, coconut oil, olive oil and butter will keep you alkaline. In this state, the calcium you consume will be deposited in your bones when needed and will not be removed.
There are three things that must be present in the body to put calcium in to your bones, Vitamin D, Fat and Calcium. Vitamin K is also important.
Best bone building meal?
Kale is high in Calcium and loaded with high quality butter. A good quality butter will contain vitamins A, D and K.
Tip 3: Exercise
Exercise will also help the process of regenerating bone. The more your muscle pull on your bones the more your bones will reinforce themselves and become denser.
Tip 4: Take care of your organs (find a qualified natural doctor)
Organ function is also imperative for bone health. With an excellent diet, your ph is naturally maintained by your kidneys, liver and lungs. Your parathyroid gland regulates blood calcium levels. Getting these to function optimally is extremely important.
