Some Recommendations on Osteoporosis
(Life Extension Foundation)

  1. Stay active. Back extension exercises are particularly important as are weight-bearing exercises.

  2. Eat a diet that is high in calcium and other important trace minerals (including magnesium) and low in phosphorus (see Vitamin/Mineral Treatments and Bone Loss).

  3. Reduce caffeine, alcohol, and eliminate cigarette smoking.

  4. Balance hormones.

Obtain as much calcium and magnesium and other trace minerals from your diet as possible by drinking milk (if tolerated) and eating dark green leafy vegetables, broccoli, nuts, and seeds; eliminate or reduce the use of colas and other soft drinks in order to decrease phosphorus intake.

The addition of between 400 and 1000 IU of vitamin D3 is mandatory to ensure optimal calcium absorption. The inability to absorb calcium is a major reason that calcium therapy fails to prevent or slow the progression of osteoporosis.

 


Other minerals that are important for healthy bone metabolism include at least 30 mg a day of elemental zinc, 3 mg a day of elemental manganese, and 2 mg of elemental boron a day.

  • Calcium

  • Magnesium

  • Zinc

  • Manganese

  • Boron

  • Copper

  • Vitamin D3, 800 IU

  • Folic acid

  • Vitamin

While certain fibers such as wheat bran, psyllium, guar gum, and pectin can interfere with mineral absorption, calcium absorbs better with meals.

Some Recommendations on Menopause
(Life Extension Foundation)

Hormone Modulation:

  • Stress. There are strong correlations between excessive stress and such problems as adrenal insufficiency, lack of menstrual cycle, PMS, vaginitis, urinary incontinence, bone loss, and infertility.

  • Smoking. Obviously, the link between cancer and smoking is well documented. Less well known is smoking's connection to bone loss, cervical dysplasia, miscarriage, and Alzheimer's disease.

  • Exercise. The obvious connection here is to osteoporosis. But lack of regular exercise plays a role in adrenal disease, cardiopulmonary disorders, loss of libido, and menstrual problems.

  • Obesity. Some menstrual disorders are found more often in overweight women. In fact, a diet that lowers body fat may lower estrogen levels as well.

  • Nutrition. Here are some areas in which dietary supplements play an important role in the development and treatment of hormonally related conditions:

  • Vitamin E. Research at Johns Hopkins Medical School demonstrated 600 IUs a day of vitamin E raised both estriol and progesterone levels in a group of women with fibroid breast disease. Both estriol and progesterone help to protect against estrogen's possible tumor-creating effects (London et al. 1981).

  • Calcium, magnesium, and vitamin D3. Any women with bone loss should supplement her diet with at least 1000 mg of elemental calcium, 600 mg of elemental magnesium, and 400 IUs of vitamin D3 a day.


 

  • Antioxidants. The addition of such antioxidants as vitamin C, vitamin E, CoQ10, grape seed-skin extract (proanthocyanidins) and alpha-lipoic acid may be of great assistance when treating a number of the disorders, including cardiac problems and cancers.

  • Fats. Diets high in saturated fats lead to heart disease, cancers, and an imbalance in the eicosanoid hormones (an important factor in fibroid cysts.) In contrast, diets high in essential fatty acids help to balance eicosanoids. Omega-3 essential fatty acids are unsaturated fats from cold water fish (salmon, tuna, mackerel and herring for example), perilla or from flax, evening primrose or borage oil provide gamma linolenic acid (GLA), an important anti-inflammatory fatty acid.

  • A good portion of your diet should come from soybeans. Other eicosanoid imbalance links include uterine cramps, pelvic pain, and breast pain. There are supplements that provide both the essential fatty acids from fish oil (DHA-EPA) and GLA.

  • High-potency B-complex vitamins. Various B vitamins have been examined by researchers. Abraham (1983) found vitamin B6 to be helpful in reducing menstrual cramps. More recently, Mills (1996) showed that supplementing the B-complex group in women with endometriosis produced a significant decrease in symptoms.

  • Bioflavonoids. Supplements of this member of the vitamin C complex appear to actually inhibit excessive estrogen synthesis (Kellis et al. 1984).

Inflammation and obesity

A study in the Journal of the American Medical Association shows that one measure of inflammation increased by more than 50 percent in obese women whose fat was mainly in their hips and thighs (“pear-shaped”), and by more than 400 percent in obese women with significant waistline fat (“apple-shaped”).

Study on NSAIDS and Cancer - Something to think about

  • Women who took ibuprofen daily for at least 5 years were 51% more likely to
    be diagnosed with breast cancer than those who did not take the drug regularly.
  • Women who took aspirin daily for at least 5 years were 81% more likely to
    develop breast cancers that were not sensitive to the hormones estrogen or
    progesterone than women who were not regular users of aspirin.
  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are frequently used for
    common ailments such as headaches, muscular pain, inflammation, and fever and
    are prescribed to alleviate chronic conditions such as arthritis.
  • NSAIDs are also used prophylactically to reduce the risk of heart attack,
    stroke, or blood clot formation.
  • Aspirin and other NSAIDs inhibit the expression of the cyclooxygenase 2
    (COX-2) gene, which encodes one of two cyclooxygenase enzymes that catalyzes
    the synthesis of prostaglandins from the dietary fatty acid arachidonic acid.
  • There is widespread use of over-the-counter pain relievers in USA.
    Approximately 35% of adult women regularly consume NSAID pain medication, not
    including Tylenol. Many of these women use combinations of aspirin, Ibuprofen, and
    Tylenol.
  • Ibuprofen has been available over-the-counter in the United States since
    1984.
  • Regular NSAID users are more likely to be overweight or obese, to be current
    or former smokers, and to have used postmenopausal hormone therapy than
    non regular NSAID users.

Analgesic's and High Blood Pressure - Important facts to consider

  • Acetaminophen [Tylenol, Atasol, Anacin-3, Panadol, Excedrin {has
    acetaminophen, aspirin, and caffeine}], ibuprofen [Motrin, Advil, Nuprin, Medipren],
    and aspirin are the most commonly used drugs in the United States.
  • Compared with women who did not use acetaminophen, older women who
    took >500 mg per day had a 93% increased risk of hypertension.
  • Younger women who took >500 mg per day had a 99% increased risk of
    hypertension.
  • For nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, older women who took >500 mg
    per day had a 78% increased risk of hypertension.
  • Older women whose usual dose of NSAID was >800 mg per day had a 120%
    higher risk of hypertension compared with nonusers.
  • Compared with nonusers of acetaminophen, older women who consumed
    >500 mg per day for headache had a 240% increased risk of hypertension.
  • In older women without headache who consumed >400 mg per day of NSAID,
    there was a 75% increased risk of hypertension compared to nonusers.
  • In older women without headache who consumed >400 mg per day of NSAID,
    there was a 270% increased risk of hypertension compared to nonusers.
  • Younger women who took >500 mg per day had a 60% increased risk of
    hypertension.
  • Compared with nonusers of acetaminophen, younger women who consumed
    >500 mg per day for headache had a 370% increased risk of hypertension.
  • Higher daily doses of acetaminophen and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory
    drugs significantly and independently increase the risk of hypertension in women.
  • Both nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and acetaminophen
    [Tylenol] impair renal function.
  • Acetaminophen [Tylenol] causes hypertension because it depletes glutathione
    (GSH) leading to renal endothelial dysfunction.

Preschool Diet and Adult Risk of Breast Cancer

  • Research has shown one additional serving of French fries per week increased the adult risk of breast cancer by 27%. This is considered a significant increase risk of breast cancer.
  • Research has also showed that one additional daily serving of ground beef was associated with a 44% increase of adult breast cancer.
  • Researchers believe that the preparation of French fries that includes high levels of trans-fatty acids, may be the best explanation for the increased risk of adult breast cancer.
  • French fries also been contain the carcinogenic industrial chemical acrylamide that may also be the reason for increased adult breast cancer rates in this study.
