Osteoporosis Drugs, Gerd and Erosion of your Esophagus
Osteoporosis Drugs, Gerd and Erosion of your Esophagus
Osteoporosis drugs like Fosamax, Boniva, Actonel, and others are called bisphosphonates. They are a dead end because they do not cure osteoporosis, they do not build strong bone, and you cannot take them for long because they carry a litany of side effects, some of which can be horrifying. If you are like millions of American women who have GERD (gastro-esophageal reflux disease, or reflux) you can add erosion of your esophagus (the tube that carries food from your throat to your stomach) to that litany of side effects.
Esophageal erosion, or Barrett’s esophagus, is when the lining of your esophagus is eroded and damaged, causing pain, problems swallowing, and increased risks of tumors and cancer of the esophagus. Turns out that you will have a 2.33-fold increase in risk of Barrett’s when you take And if you have GERD and take bisphosphonates, you will have a 3.29-fold in- creased risk!
Side Effects of Bisphosphonates
1. Increased risk of Barrett’s esophagus.
2. Spontaneous fractures of your femur (hip bone).
4. Long-term weakening of your skeleton.
5. Necrosis of your mandible, which is irreversible and destructive rot of your jaw.
What is the payoff for these side effects, besides drug company profits? A few years with less bone loss as your skeleton fails to clear itself of old, dying, and brittle bone – actually causing a weakening of your skeleton rather than a strengthening. In other words, the illusion that things are under control because the numbers look good! Like much of medicine today, osteoporosis drugs manage symptoms and maintain bone mass while ignoring the real cause. For most women this, unfortunately, occurs while your skeleton deteriorates unbeknownst to you.
Cure Your Osteoporosis!
Heart rendering osteoporosis TV commercials starring Sally Fields notwithstanding, these drugs are a dead end. Instead, there is only one cure for osteoporosis. That cure involves weight-bearing exercise like weight lifting combined with the proper nutrition. And proper nutrition does not mean a store bought pill you take once daily. Rather it includes raw-bone concentrate, minerals, real vitamin C (not ascorbic acid with some stale rose hips thrown into the batch), the whole vitamin D complex from real cod liver oil, calcium lactate from vegetables and not from crushed rock, and Even though there is no medical cure for osteoporosis, with or without bisphosphonates, if you suffer from osteoporosis, the basics include: Calcifood® Wafers or Powder, Cod Liver Oil, Calcium Lactate, and Cataplex® C. These are the real thing. Here’s why: Calcifood® contains whole raw bones and the marrow treated without heat or chemicals to conserve the life force of all the minerals and nutrients in raw bones.
Cod Liver Oil is real, whole cod liver oil (the super source of vitamin D), rather than industrially processed, stripped of natural vitamins, deodorized, heated to over 400 degrees, and more.
Calcium Lactate is real calcium that your body actually uses, made from vegetables, not crushed Cataplex® C is real vitamin C from adrenal extract (the richest source of vitamin C), buckwheat, alfalfa, carrot, mushroom, echinacea and more; with all the ancillary nutrition including bioflavonoids, enzymes and coenzymes, organic copper, and more. This is not ascorbic acid that is laboratory made.
Additional products that can be prescribed and that are known to be effective supplements that help with osteoporosis and other bone deficiencies are Cataplex D, Calcifood, Ostrophin PMG, Biost, Collagen C and Cataplex A. These products are made by Standard Process.
In addition, you must put strong, weight bearing stress on your bones as in lifting weights for an hour every 5-6 days. The best, safest, easiest way to lift weights is to join a gym and use The Slow Burn Fitness Revolution by Hahn, Eades, and Eades. I guarantee if you exercise properly and use real nutrition, your bones will begin to strengthen. And it is all worth it because the end stage of osteoporosis is not pretty. It is a picture of severe, chronic, 24-7 pain from a deteriorating skeleton slowly turning to sand, leaving you wheelchair-bound, then bed-bound, then nursing home-bound on paralyzing narcotics for pain.
Stop the Antacids
Taking antacids for many years for GERD or indigestion is a fast track to osteoporosis. These drugs, from the very first pill, make you sick by definition. The reduced stomach acid will prevent your body from digesting and utilizing the very nutrition your skeleton needs to stay strong. Rather, most people with GERD and heartburn are actually suffering from insufficient stomach acid. Instead of taking acid soppers and stoppers, they need supplemental digestive acid and enzymes.
So your indigestion and GERD from too little digestive enzymes, bizarre combinations of foods, processed and artificial foods, too much wheat, a fixable hiatal hernia, or some other cause gets symptom treatment with antacids instead of treatment of the cause. Where does this lead you?
1. To malabsorption of minerals and essentials for your joints.
2. To arthritis and osteoporosis.
3. To symptom treatment with pain killers and/or bisphosphonate drugs.
4. To treatments that leave the underlying cause ignored and fomenting, while causing addiction, a weakened skeleton, perhaps spontaneous femur fracture or osteonecrosis of the jaw, and maybe even Barrett’s esophagus.
5. These lead to invalidism, drug addiction, a nursing home, cancer, and death.
I think you can easily see how the model of treating symptoms can cause disaster. Side Effects of Treating the Underlying Cause So get started strengthening your skeleton now. Forget bisphosphonate drugs. Start living again. The side effects from our protocol include, but are not limited to:
1. Reversing your biological clock and feeling 10-20 years younger.
2. Reducing, then eliminating, joint pain.
3. Increased freedom and confidence.
4. Increased independence.
5. Less drugs.
6. And real enjoyment in your golden years.
Now there’s a real protocol for indigestion, GERD, arthritis, osteoporosis, and more. All with no drugs and at a tiny fraction of the cost of medical treatment. The choice is yours.
