Resolve to Improve Bone and Joint Health in 2009

Most of us know that adequate calcium consumption and weight-bearing physical activity is helpful for building strong bones and may reduce the risk of osteoporosis (a reduction of bone mineral density) later in life. But, when someone has an injury to their bones or suffers from osteoporosis, they are often only aware of Western Medicine’s drug options as a way to restore tired bones to their former health. As always, these drug-based remedies may offer help for some, but they unfortunately can lead to harmful side effects while not addressing the primary cause of the problem. Read Dr. Graeme Shaw’s article about how Eastern Medicine focuses on more natural and healthful solutions, including recommendations for improving your kidney energy.*

What to do when your joints hurt

Massaging a WomanIf you do suffer from joint pain, your first reaction may be to take an over-the-counter pain reliever such as acetaminophen (i.e., Tylenol™) or a non steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (i.e., Aleve™). While these drugs make the pain go away temporarily, they don't address the underlying cause of the pain and can also result in serious side effects. According to, acetaminophen is the number one cause of hospital admissions for liver failure. Instead of taking drugs, recommends you first try some natural alternatives, such as gentle stretching exercises, taking a warm bath or getting a massage.*

Magnesium May Help Offset Osteoporosis

Magnesium CitrateBoth the National Institute of Health (NIH) and NaturalNews acknowledge that taking a magnesium supplement may enrich bone mineral density and be a positive factor in reducing the risk of osteoporosis. In addition, the NIH's Office of Dietary Supplements notes that a substantial numbers of adults fail to consume recommended amounts of magnesium. Older adults are especially at risk for magnesium deficiency. Get Well Natural's Magnesium Citrate is easily absorbed by the body and contains no fillers or binders.

Happy GrandmaThe Side-Effects of Too Much Calcium

Many women take calcium to reduce the risk of osteoporosis. According to Susan Ott, MD, taking excess amounts of calcium does not help bones; rather, it causes kidneys to overwork in order to expel the extra calcium. And Phil Bate, PhD, states in his article, Calcium Myths, that excess calcium may accumulate in bone spurs or cysts and make arthritis and back pain worse.

Another calcium concern is highlighted in a Vascular Events Study conducted by the faculty of the Medical and Health Sciences Department of Medicine at the University of Auckland, New Zealand. The study involved 1,471 women who took 1,500 mg. of calcium daily for five years. The results showed that these women had a 40 percent higher risk of heart attacks and a higher risk for stroke.*
