13Bone FactsBones are dense connective tissue. Honeycomb-like, 3-dimensional structure.Lightweight, strong and hard.206 bones in the human body.Bones are alive!
14Bone Marrow Functions Red Marrow Generates stem cells Red blood cells, platelets and most white blood cellsResides in the skull, ribs, shoulder blades, vertebrae, breastbone and hip bones
15TeethBaby teeth develop during the 6th week of pregnancy. Permanent teeth during the 20th week of pregnancy.
16TeethThese are critical times for excellent nutrient and mineral intake.Black Walnut, Skeletal Strength, Horsetail, Omega 3.If this window of opportunity closes without proper nutrients, teeth may fail to develop or will be missing.Note: Mention mineral content of the herbs, supplements
17Joints-Ligaments-Tendons Two bones connect and have range of motion.Cartilage cushions connecting bones.Joint Capsule is a soft tissue envelope that cushions and provides smooth movement between bones
18Joints-Ligaments-Tendons Ligaments Strong stabilizing sheets or bands of connective tissue anchor joints/bones to bone
19Joints-Ligaments-Tendons Tendons Bands that connect muscle to the bone and can withstand tension.
20Structural Challenges Osteoporosis A “silent” disease where bones lose their mass, become weaker and heighten the possibility of bone fracture.
21Structural Challenges Osteoporosis 5% bone loss yearly after age 30 in the U.S. is typical. 20% mortality in the elderly if they break a hip. Common after menopause.
22Structural Challenges Osteoporosis Predisposed by hormonal disorders and steroids, which suppress immunity. Can significantly affect life expectancy. Diagnosed via X-ray, ultrasound and blood tests.
23Risk Factors Is your wrist less than 6 inches in circumference? Are you taller than 5’7” and weigh less than 127 lbs.?Do you smoke?Do you drink more than 2 servings of alcohol daily?Are you depressed?Depression creates chemicals that eat bone! Mehmet Oz MD.
24Medical Treatment For Osteoporosis Medications to slow bone loss Exercise Calcium Vitamin D
25The Elephant in the Room Lead, cadmium and other heavy metals can be stored in the bones. Lead is the most abundant toxic metal. World production: 3.5 million tons per year.
26The Elephant in the Room Radiation (Dental, Mammograms, CT scans) is stored in the bones and thyroid gland.An average CT Scan = 74 mammograms = 442 chest X-rays.Rebecca Smith-Bindman, MD, radiology professor, UCSF CBS News, New York, Dec 14, 2009
27What Is the Risk?Widespread and overuse of CT scans “will lead to tens of thousands of cancer cases and as many as 15,000 deaths for each year that the scanners are used, researchers reported today.”The Oregonian, Dec. 15, 2009: Research says overuse ofCTs causes cancer.
28Understand X-Rays and Alternatives Use Common Sense – Ask Questions!Always protect the thyroid with a lead sheet.Check out digital X-rays for dental and mammography.
29Understand X-Rays and Alternatives Check out Thermography pictures of the breast and body. Can an Ultrasound be used instead? What about MRI as an alternative?
30Understand X-Rays and Alternatives Full day of Sun: 1/10,000 radSingle tooth: 4-14 radsA full “preventative checkup” up to 40 rads(Radiology, vol. 61, W.E. Nolan and H.W. Patterson)The human body can handle only 50 rads without harm.Dr. Shields Warren (Harvard Medical School)
31Understand X-Rays and Alternatives If X-rays are needed, utilize kelp baths. 1 cup for 18 minutes twice monthly for 3 months. Also take with Algin, Astragalus and Vitamin E with Selenium.
32The Risk Quiz Are you a woman? Do you have weak muscles? Are you often worried and anxious?Are you more unhappy than happy?Do you use anti-depressants or acid-blockers?
33The Risk Quiz (cont.) Do you smoke? Have you used steroids, long-term? Do you drink more than: 2 servings of alcohol, 1 serving of soda, and/or 2 servings of coffee daily?Are you close to or in menopause? Do you have moderate or severe symptoms?
34The Risk Quiz (cont.) Have you broken a bone as an adult? Did either parent fracture a hip?Have you lost half or more of your teeth?Do you consume a high protein diet?Do you have difficulty healing?Do you have difficulty sleeping?
35Puzzling FactsMost world populations average 400 mg of calcium daily without any evidence of osteoporosis. Example: China. In the US, we consume calcium-rich dairy and calcium supplements and have epidemic osteoporosis.
36Did You Know?Taking calcium alone suppresses magnesium absorption and can create a magnesium shortage. Result: Calcium leaves the bone and enters into the soft tissues, resulting in cell aging.
37Did You Know?Higher levels of magnesium stimulates the thyroid to deposit calcium into the bones.Natural foods have a ratio of 2-8 parts magnesium to 1 part calcium.Always take calcium with magnesium.Unigram: The Calcium Myth by Robert Koch, Independent Biochemist. Universal Nutrition.
38Did You Know?Osteoporosis is called a disease of calcium loss or malabsorption, not deficiency.Dr. Daisy Franzini—Good Samaritan Hospital, Portland, ORWhat is causing the loss or malabsorption?
39Did You Know?Eating refined sugar depletes the body of nutrients it needs. It is a major contributor to an acid pH. 12 oz of soda: 8 tsp of sugar = 32 g (1 tsp = 4 g) A banana split: 25 tsp of sugar = 100 g On average, Americans eat 176 lbs of sugar per year! Nature’s Sunshine Answer: Stevia and Xylitol
40Soda DangersThese contain phosphoric acid which can severely deplete blood calcium levels and alter a healthy pH. Chronic use lowers the deposit of calcium into the bones so bone mass and density suffer. Sodas increase your risk of osteoporosis.
41The pH FactorAlmost all health problems begin in an acid pH environment.If your pH is below 5.8You will not absorb vitamins A, B and E.You will not absorb Sulfur, Calcium, Potassium and other important minerals.Poor Diet, Toxins, Stress, Stuffed Emotions and Negative Mental Focuses all contribute to acidity
42Solutions That WorkDiet Lifestyle Supplements Mental and Emotional
43Our First Step: The Basics Hydration: drink pure alkaline water Whole Foods Diet Regular Exercise 30 min. 3X weekly Must include weight bearing and muscle strengthening High quality Nature’s Sunshine Supplements that contain: Calcium, Magnesium, Manganese, Vitamin D and Vitamin K.
44Our First Step: The Basics The Importance of HydrationYou must hydrate down to the cellular level.Drink ½ your body weight in ounces of pure alkaline water per day.Example:150 lbs = 75 fl. oz. water
45Our First Step: The Basics To achieve that, drink 4 ounces every 15 minutes.You can add some lemon to the water to help keep you alkaline.The discs and cartilage are 98% water.
46Our First Step: The Basics Eat a plant-based diet of fresh fruits, veggies, salad and whole grains. Eat almonds, pumpkin seeds and cashews daily.
47Our First Step: The Basics A diet of 80% alkaline to 20% acid foods. Choose foods high in fiber, calcium, Vitamin D and Lysine. Eat more vegetarian protein than animal protein. Wild caught fish/seafood and organic chicken/poultry is ideal.
48Too Much ProteinNorth Americans eat 2-3 times the amount of protein they need. Reducing the protein load to the RDA of g daily (the size of 2 eggs) is the goal.
49Too Much ProteinThe protein intake of the Chinese is 30 g daily, mostly from soy and grains. Vegans have good bone health even without dairy.
50Our First Step: The Basics Exercise 30 min. 3X weeklyInclude weight bearing and muscle strengthening.Ideally walk and/or do other exercises daily.If impaired structural functions are advanced, yoga and swimming are ideal.
51StressStress (emotional and physical) is known to cause a high acid pH. The body borrows calcuim and magnesium from the bones and joints to balance the pH. Imbalance in pH can lead to structural system weakness in both bones and joints.
