Dr. Fuhrman has a web page and even a video out concerning osteoporosis called Osteoporosis Protection for Life:
and osteoporosis is one of Dr. McDougall's Hot Topics, too.
- Some important things to remember:
- Avoid dairy.
- Avoid high protein foods.
- Get proper amounts of high impact exercise.
- Make sure your Vitamin D level is within the normal range and supplement with extra time in the sun or vitamins as necessary.
And here is Dr. McDougall's advice:
"Bone loss is reversible by fixing the cause. Everyone, and especially people with osteoporosis and a lesser condition, osteopenia, should eat a low-acid starch-based diet (with some restriction on grains and legumes, which are slightly acidic) and exercise. Focus on a diet plentiful in sweet potatoes, potatoes, winter squashes, with the addition of fruits and green and yellow vegetables."
