Bone Loss

Elaine Writes:
We are continually discussing the treatment of bone loss. We don't all
necessarily want to run to the drugstore for another drug and that is why we
are saying, let's get the gut healed. With the gut healed, we can then
absorb nutrients including vitamins and minerals. We have also said that
bone is not only minerals; it has an organic matrix (minerals are part of
the inorganic part) which requires Vitamin C and the B vitamins.
So, with a good nutritious diet healing the gut and absorbing all the
minerals and vitamins in our food and taking a moderate supplement as my
book suggests, we have had many, many woman and men regain bone density.
We want to try this road before adding another bottle to the medicine chest.
