I'm 20, but I have been researching Vitamin K2 and it seems to be the holy grail or missing ingredient for calcium use correctly in the body :) I'll link you up! http://chriskresser.com/vitamin-k2-the-missing-nutrient
I like a lot of what the paleo movement reccomends but I think its too early to conclude that saturated fat is some miracle superfood when there are too many conflicting studies for any one to reccomend we start eating these fats with reckless... (more)
I'm wondering if anyone one here heard about meat and poultry leading to poor bone health from a loss of calcium? There are a number of studies showing animal protein causes a high excretion of calcium from the urine. I've spoken to another paleo... (more)
I answered the question on osteoporosis that was posted recently and realised I'm not sure if I'm taking the right combo of vitamins, given I have osteoporosis myself. K2 and D3 are fine, I take those, but I also take 600 or 800mg of magnesium... (more)
A great book to read to find out more about the importance of the calcium/magnesium balance is Dr Carolyn Dean's book The Magnesium Miracle. She says that it is very important to take enough magnesium in order for your body to assimilate calcium.... (more)
My mother has osteoporosis, Vitamin D deficiency, and fibrous dysplasia and is in her 60's. She has fractured multiple bones in the past. She only recently went Paleo with raw dairy, Vitamin D supplementation, and Carlson Cod Liver Oil, etc. Wolf... (more)
I'm very interested in switching to a modified Paleo Diet. I pretty much eat very similar to Paleo right now, though I do allow some sugars occasionally (I love my mojitos on a hot summer day). I realized a year ago that I have a wheat... (more)
Hi guys, My dad is in his early fifties, overweight by 30-50 lbs and has poor bone density, and when I've gotten him to eat more paleo for extended periods, he hasn't lost the weight he was expecting to (he's been an on/off Atkins guy for years) ... (more)
Encourage him to eat breakfast and read about the leptin reset. He's out of whack, so whatever he did successfully in his past doesn't matter as much as right now.
Hi everyone, For the past 5+ months I have been learning and practicing paleo mainly because of my wonderful lady friend whom is associated with you guys! I have started reaching out to my mother for the past 2-3 months about the health benefits... (more)
What: The Paleo Summit (see also this post) Who: Dr. Catherine Shanahan MD ??? Author, Deep Nutrition Topic: The Paleo Diet vs. Top-Selling Drugs ??? Who Wins? Dr. Cate compares the Paleo Diet to taking prescription drugs for treating three... (more)
My mom was diagnosed with osteoporosis in her left hip, and osteopenia in her right hip a year or so ago (she is 55), and unfortunately started taking Fosamax in May of 2011. As of late, she's been experiencing a host of horrible symptoms ranging... (more)
I suffer from osteoporosis, certainly due to genetic factors (my mother has it) and also eating disorders as teen. At only 38 I want to make sure I get absolutely enough of the right vitamins and minerals to give myself the best chance of... (more)
So, on my very exciting Friday night -- Researching on the Interwebs about milk + health (believe me I'll have some questions over the next few days for y'all, don't want to overwhelm everyone at once;), I found some pretty strong criticisms of... (more)
With the acceptance of dairy products slowly growing within the community - as well as my own newfound interested in some of Peat's ideas - some questions have been nagging at me. For quite a while it's been clear that there is at least some... (more)
My very fit and otherwise healthy mother has an inoperable nodule on her parathyroid, which is causing her inherited osteoporosis to kick into high gear. A recent bone scan revealed a 5% loss of density in her spine over the past year. Her doc... (more)
Hi, I'm new but reading recent discussions on whether gluten really is the ultimate bad guy I am undecided about how important it is to completely eliminate it as I currently eat a bit of sourdough bread with eggs in the morning (eggs alone make... (more)
Based on the following quotes in a WAPF article titled Vitamin A On Trial: Does Vitamin A Cause Osteoporosis?... Eating whole foods, however, is not enough. The so-called "primitives" studied by Weston Price had adapted complete diets and... (more)
