How Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic can help people with Osteoporosis
Osteoporosis literally means porous bones. Osteoporosis is a metabolic disease affecting the skeleton which causes a reduction in the amount of bone tissue. Did you know that some of the bones in your body are completely regenerated every three months? Our bodies constantly break down and build bone. It’s a natural and necessary process. How else would our bodies be able to heal broken bones?
The key is to keep this process in balance, meaning you constantly build new bone at the rate you break down existing bone. As we age, this balancing act is not as efficient. Bone mass density, or the weight of the skeleton, may start to drop. In addition, calcium absorption declines and our levels of some vitamins, minerals and certain hormones start to fall. All of these directly affect the health of our bones — and this goes for both men and women.
More than 10 million Americans have osteoporosis (porous) and another 34 million are at risk. 80% of those who suffer from osteoporosis are women. A silent disease, it comes with aging but often without symptoms until a bone breaks. Bone loss is most likely to develop in the hip, spine, wrist and ribs. There are 1.2 million fractures each year in the United States due to osteoporosis, including 300,000 hip fractures, 700,000 vertebral fractures, and 250,000 wrist fractures. A fractured hip is an all-too-common prelude to death in elderly adults. Once they are injured, it takes a long process to recover and cause great inconveniences in one’s daily life even in simple movements such as sitting, standing up, walking, etc.
You usually get an advice: “Drink milk”, take calcium and you will be OK.
It is not such a simple thing. Read the facts.
Milk consumption and calcium supplementation are very high in Norway, Sweden, New Zealand and USA. And those countries are in the top in the fractured hip in elderly people. On the other hand, there are areas in the world, for example Africa, where people even don’t know the taste of milk, yet their bones are normal.
What happens to the calcium in our bones? How is it stolen?
The answer is body’s acidity – chronic acidosis.
Acidosis and osteoporosis.
Acidosis is an excessive accumulation of various acids in the body which have disease promoting effects. The condition known as “Chronic Acidosis” is the contributing factor in all-degenerative and autoimmune diseases. Keeping the body in a slightly alkaline state is the ideal situation. The average American Diet will fall into the acidic range and tends to neglect the alkaline diet range. As this occurs the body will leech the alkaline reserves, such as calcium, magnesium and manganese from the bones and muscles. If the leeching of these minerals and microelements is allowed to continue, osteoporosis, arthritis and other autoimmune and metabolic diseases will occur.
We, at the Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic, consider chronic, low-grade metabolic acidosis to be a major factor contributing to the development of thin, weak bones and teeth.

The good news is that there’s a lot you can do to help keep your bones strong and resilient as you age.
Fortunately, there is a mineral supplement that can restore the body’s alkaline mineral reserves and supply the body with life important minerals and microelements, promoting digestion and eliminating toxic acidic compounds. It can also increase the alkaline reserve, especially the main bicarbonate buffer of blood. This supplement has been known as Karlovy Vary Healing Mineral Water (KVHMW)*.
At the Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic we believe that “you are what you eat, digest, assimilate, and eliminate.” You can eat the healthiest natural food, but without healthy eating habits, correct food combining, and a proper functioning gastro-intestinal tract, the “best” diet will not work. Using the “healing power of food”, we can give you a Healing Food Consultations- customized diet plan that was developed in European naturopathic clinics. There is no effective healing process for any disorders an especially for metabolic disorder – osteoporosis without a special diet and proper food combining.
Calcium is the mineral that automatically comes to mind when considering osteoporosis treatment. However, although bone contains large amounts of calcium, other minerals need to be considered as important in the treatment and prevention of osteoporosis. For example, other trace minerals (minerals needed in small amounts for specific tasks usually enzyme activation) would include zinc, magnesium, and boron. Taking only calcium alone is waste of money and useless. Calcium is a very hard mineral to absorb. As a result, we believe that you must take many forms of calcium to absorb it properly. Also remember that many expensive calcium supplements contain an excess amount of lead and have failed quality testing at a consumer laboratory.
Many people in North America who consume an average diet have magnesium deficiency. Magnesium is important in bone structure and magnesium deficiency plays a significant role in the development of osteoporosis. Magnesium intake should be about half that of calcium, approximately 300-500 mg per day. Our supplement Biotherapy Cellular Magnesium-Potassium provides a highly beneficial source of magnesium which assist in the maintenance of healthy bone structure and function*.
Sublingual-12 Plus contains Vitamin B-12 and Folic Acid. A Vitamin B-12 and Folic Acid deficiency has been implicated in a wide variety of disorders from Alzheimer’s disease to atherosclerosis, heart attack, stroke, osteoporosis, cervical and colon cancer, depression, dementia, hearing loss, and more.
Acupuncture helps to prevent osteoporosis before it attacks you! Specific acupuncture points can stimulate the growth of bone tissues and replace the tissue lost fast enough to prevent the decrease in bone density. Acupuncture treatments can also alleviates pain and muscles spasms, strengthen the muscles to support the body weight. Acupuncture treatment is definitely important for you if you are already suffering from osteoporosis. It is perhaps the only treatment that does not have side effects. The effect of acupuncture is much greater when combined with natural herbal treatment, food supplements, diet, relaxation, exercise and whole body cleansing.
Remember, bones are living organs that remodel themselves constantly. Nurture them, feed them properly, heal them safely and they will respond.
