Hi, Does anyone have scientific and/or personal experience with using strontium citrate for osteoporosis? Apparently it is best taken at a different time of day from calcium, and less of it than the total amount of calcium in the daily diet. Does anyone know about side effects? Thank you very much.
Dear Ted, My mother is a moderately active 79+, frail and tiny lady. She has over the years become slightly bent (which now I understand is dowagers hump). She has been on high BP medication for sometime now.
For many years she had been complaining of pain in the lower abdomen. Scans and clinical examinations showed no problem. She was put on painkillers and she was also put on Vitamin D3 supplements that on testing had become acutely toxic.
Recently a BDM test was prescribed. The report shows her to be acutely osteoporotic with a T score of (-5.7)
He has prescribed Bonista that is a Ranbaxy drug administered in a sub cutaneous injection through the same kind of pen like device as in the case of insulin/diabetes shots. I think its Teriparatide and the popular brand in the US is called Forteo.It is some hormone based therapy to be self administered for 18 months. I have got to know that it does not suit all and may have serious side effects. Don't know if this is true. Am mailing all the details to you simply to give you the complete picture and also to take your opinion regarding the same. She is on high BP medication.
I am giving her SBL's Biochemic salt 'Magnesia Phosphorica' 6x - 4 pellets - four times a day. She is also taking half a cup of freshly extracted juice (unboiled) of Tinospora cordifalia stem as well as leaves (Giloy), a tablespoon juice of fresh Ocimum sanctum - Indian basil (Tulsi) and 1/3rd cup of fresh Aloe Vera gel. And three four curry leaves and some fresh ginger. Besides this she is also taking two tablespoons of Unsulphurated organic Blackstrap Molasses and Brag's organic Apple Cider Vinegar with the mother. She is a complete vegetarian. Her T score is very low. Is there something that we can do to help her? Also, I wish to know that nothing in the list of what I am giving her could harm her in any way. Would be grateful for your response.
