Any ideas on how I can eat to improve or reverse Osteoporosis? I had a dexa scan and it revealed I have Osteoporsis.

I agree with the above comments. You want pleanty of vitamins A & D & K2, along with magnesium, selenium, zinc, etc...K2 is probably the most important because it activates proteins that make sure you calcium ends up in your bones, instead of your other tissues..Grass fed butter and ghee are good sources of K2, but you might need more. Egg yolks (from pasture raised chickens) are another good souce, goose liver is another..You can supplement k2 (mk7 from natto). Another option is high vitamin butter oil, combined with cod liver oil (for vitamins A & D)..A & D and k2 all work together and depend on eachother so you want them to be in balance...a deficiency of one effects the others.

These supplements are expensive but I'm assuming they are less expensive than drugs and I know they work better.

Here's a less expensive source of high vitamin butter oil, but I have no idea if it's as good. http://www.amazon.com/Vitamin-Butter-Grass-Organic-12/dp/B004LKDKFC/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_nC?ie=UTF8&colid=NO0O5IR011WD&coliid=I2HLSWDM0UUW71

Magnesium is also important because without it vitamin D is pretty much useless...so supplementing magnesium would probably be a good idea.

Here's the magnesium supplement I use. http://www.amazon.com/Natural-Vitality-Raspberry-Lemon-Flavor/dp/B000WVY4PE/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1348037987&sr=8-3&keywords=natural+vitality+magnesium

Here's how to make a bone broth. The easy version. If you have a slow cooker.. Throw in some good quality bones or a whole chicken or both...with filtered water, a bit of vinegar, some salt and some spices..and cook them on low for about 24-48 hours or longer. I keep mine going for up to a week at a time and just keep adding some extra bones as I use it (after about 5 days it starts to darken and gets a strong flavor so, I toss it and start over). You could throw in some veggies or beans(preferably sprouted) or potatos and turn it into a soup. After about 48 hours the bones will be soft enough to eat (if you want to)..that means a lot of the mineral content has leached into the broth.

Do the above and as a side benefit, your dental health will also improve. I know this from experience. :)

It may not be possible to restore lost bone but perhaps you can stop the loss. D3 as mentioned above, plenty of grassfed butter or ghee (vitamin K2) and all the bone broth you can drink.

Protecting Bone and Arterial Health with Vitamin k2 By William Davis, MD

Millions of people take calcium supplements to maintain healthy bone. Yet few patients or physicians realize that optimizing bone integrity involves more than taking a single mineral supplement. A critical additional component for bone and cardiovascular health is vitamin K2.

Recent research has revealed that, without vitamin K2, calcium regulation is disrupted. In fact, low levels of vitamin K2 are associated with an increased risk of heart disease and atherosclerosis.1 Astute doctors have long known that people with a lack of calcium in their bones are more likely to possess an excess of calcium in their arteries, and vice versa. The resulting lack of calcium in bone leads to osteoporosis, while the deposition of calcium in the arterial wall leads to coronary heart disease and other manifestations of cardiovascular, renal, and neurodegenerative disease.

Although vitamin K has been around for decades, dietary recommend-ations have been overshadowed by the nominal amount required for healthy blood clotting???and have ignored the optimal amounts of vitamin K needed to maintain healthy bones and arteries. In this article, we???ll explore how vitamin K2 regulates calcium as well as the recent evidence supporting this unique vitamin in preventing heart disease and osteoporosis as well as certain types of cancer.

And this is what you can eat:

i-have-osteoporosis

Natt?? contains large amounts of vitamin K2, which is involved in the formation of calcium-binding groups in proteins, assisting the formation of bone and preventing osteoporosis. Vitamin K1 is found naturally in seaweed, liver, and some vegetables, while vitamin K2 (Menatetrenone) is found in fermented food products such as cheese, miso, and Natt??. Natt?? has large amounts of vitamin K2, approximately 870 micrograms per 100 grams of natt??.

I'm not really sure that I can answer your question but...about a year ago I had a scan (I think it was a dexa) that showed I had osteoporosis which was frustrating because I was doing weight bearing exercises 3x per week, taking calcium, etc. (in other words, all the stuff you are supposed to do to prevent it). I put off the referral to the rheumatologist and made two changes. I stopped eating grains and that fairly quickly put an end to my constant hip pain, among other things. I also supplemented with vitamin D3 (10000 iu/d) and magnesium. Now my vitamin D3 levels are quite high (86ng/dl). My appt with the rheumatologist is next month and I hope I will have good news.
