    1. 1. Permanent Solutions forStrong Bones and Active Living
    2. 2. Osteoporosis: An Epidemic Concern• Osteoporosis and osteopenia affectsover 3.2 million people in Canadaalone (>10% of the population)• Current cost: $1.3 billion each year• By 2018, estimated cost is $32.5billion• Osteoporosis affects 1 in 4 womenand 1 out of every 8 men over the ageof 50• More women die each year as a resultof osteoporotic fractures than frombreast and ovarian cancer combined

    4. 4. “The significant problems we havecannot be solved at the same level ofthinking with which we created them.”Albert Einstein, (attributed)US (German-born) physicist (1879 - 1955)
    5. 5. TheWellnessTriadPhysicalNutritional Emotional1. Physical - Subluxation & Poor Posture2. Emotional - Fatigue & Sleep3. Nutritional - Proper Supplementation- Detoxification- Body’s ph
    6. 6. Osteoporosis vs OsteoarthritisOsteoporosis:– A disease causing low bone mass– Deterioration of bone tissue– Leads to increased bone fragility– Risk of fracture (hip, spine andwrist Osteoporosis is oftenknown as "the silent thief"• Osteoarthritis– A disease of the joints andsurrounding tissue– Biomechanical degeneration ofthe joints of the body
    7. 7. Healthy Bones vs. Weak Bones• As we age, the process ofrebuilding bone slows down.As we lose bone, it becomesporous.• As bone becomes weak, evena small trauma may result indebilitating fractures.
    8. 8. Molecular Structure of Bone• Bone is living tissue• Hydroxyapatite crystals, madeof calcium and phosphorus aredeposited on collagen fibers.• Other minerals are alsodeposited, forming a matrix.• This structure, much like steel-reinforced concrete, gives boneits incredible strength andresilience.• Bone is a work in progress
    9. 9. Are You At Risk of Osteoporosis?• White or Asian Ethnicity• Female• Thin or small boneframe• Family history of boneloss with age• Postmenopausal orsurgical hysterectomy• Lack of weight-bearingexercise• Cigarette smoking• Excessive intake ofcaffeine or alcohol• Uneven leg lengths andstructuralmisalignments(subluxation)• Low stomach acid orfrequent indigestion
    10. 10. Fluoride Increases Your Risk• Fluoride in the water supplydoubles the risk• Fluoride is toxic to the bones inany amount• Harmful to the thyroid gland• Increases rate of bone fractures by30% in women and 40% in men
    11. 11. Medicines Which Increase Risk• Thyroid replacementdrugs• Heparin (anti-coagulants)• Cortisone preparations(prednisone)• Aluminum containingantacids (Tums)• Anti-convulsants• Regular use of diureticssuch as Lasix, Bumex,Edecrin, and Demadex• Antibiotic drugs(tetracycline
    12. 12. Highest Milk Consumption = HighestOsteoporosis Rate• North Americans• Finns• Swedes• Israelis• British
    13. 13. New Research: Calcium SupplementationIncreases Hip Fractures by 64%!!• Supplementing calciumwithout Vit D increases risk• Need balanced amount of VitD, calcium, phosphate, andother trace minerals to buildstrong bones– Phosphates derived fromgood sources of protein –organic lean meats(turkey, chicken and fish)Dr Bischoff-Ferrari (2009)Professor of Clinical Research – University Hospital Zurich Switzerland
    14. 14. Role of Calcium Calcium Essential building block for bone, healthy teethand nails Integral in regulating heart beat, conducting nerveimpulses, stimulating hormones secretions and forblood clotting Important in proper weight management andachieving deep and sound restorative sleep. Also acts as a buffer (acidity)
    15. 15. The Best Sources of Calcium• Green leafy vegetables• Sesame Seeds• Fruits• Sea vegetables– Nori, kombu,wakame, agar-agar,seaweed• Nuts - almonds• Tofu• Collard Greens• Mustard green• Cooked Kale• Sardines & bones• Turnips• Kidney beans• Shrimp
    16. 16. Vitamin D• Activated by sunlight via skin• Northern populations are deficientbetween October-February• Sun’s rays strike the earth at anoblique angle making it difficult forVit D production• Milk contains 300mg Vit D andcalcium but is poorly absorbed byhuman physiology• Solution?– Eat more fruits and vegetablesdaily– Take 1000mg Vit D daily throughsupplementation
    17. 17. Bone Building Essentials Protein for basic framework of the bone Vitamin D – 1000 IU sun or coldsaltwater fish Magnesium – help transport calcium Isoflavones Vitamin K – guides the calcium – fromgreen chlorophyll rich plant food Silicon – important trace minerals Strontium – important trace mineral Boron – important trace mineral
    18. 18. Bone Building Essentials Copper - Zinc – Manganese co-factors Selenium Vitamin B (6-9-12) – water soluble –which produce HCL acid in the stomachso calcium and food can dissolveproperly Lycopene – helps bone stay strong anddisease free Vitamin C Fish oil –EPA and DHA increase calciumabsorption and accelerate calciumdelivery
    19. 19. Foods To Avoid• Soft drinks and coffee• Processed foods –cheeses, lunch meat,snack foods• Alcohol• Salt• Sugar – following sugarintake there is anincreased excretion ofcalcium in the urineIn Summary:• Diets high in sugar, softdrinks and protein lead toOsteoporosis
    20. 20. Dangerous Medical Treatment MethodsDangerous Medical Treatment Methods• Hormone ReplacementTherapy (HRT) is consideredpotentially dangerous.• 30% of patients takingFosamax cannot toleratethe treatment due togastrointestinal side effects
    21. 21. Dangerous Medical Treatment MethodsDangerous Medical Treatment Methods• Fosamax, Boniva, Actonel–Biphosphate drugs• linked to a risk of esophageal canceraccording to F.D.A.• have also been linked to an increased risk ofatrial fibrillation, thigh bone fractures, andinflammatory eye disease ~NewEngland Journal of Medicine
    22. 22. Warning Signs of Osteoporosis• Postural misalignments• Compression fractures• X-rays demonstratingosteopenia• Poor dosimetry score• Re-occurring spinal pains

    26. 26. The First Step in Wellness• Vit D 1000mg per day• Weight training exercisestrengthens bones• Aerobic exercise 3 ormore times aweek• More alkaline lifestyle• Chiropractic adjustmentstrigger bonerepair and nerve function• Correct Uneven leg lengths
    27. 27. How acidic are you? Acidic Diet Bodies produce organic acidic by products acidosis, bone loss and muscle mass loss acidic waste accumulates in cells, causing enormous damage toyour over all health. Alkaline diet Improves health: Balances nitrogen levels Stops body from taking calcium from bones Improves human growth hormone concentrations Cancer cells can’t thrive in alkaline environment Litmus paper test Normal PH is 7.3
    28. 28. Importance of a HealthyNervous System• Autonomic NervousSystem - organs• Link to the bowel andproper nerve function• Healthy gut for betterabsorption of calciumand assimilation ofother bone buildingvitamins and minerals
