These feature articles cover many ways of maintaining bone health naturally.
The three-part series by Earl Staelin featured in the first three issues below presents fascinating research showing how high calcium consumption can interfere with calcium absorption, result in weaker bones, and cause calcium to be deposited where it is not wanted. His research shows that people who consume the highest amounts of calcium experience higher rates of osteoporosis and fractures. He discusses two central and readily available minerals, both in foods and in supplement form, that enhance the absorption of calcium from foods.
Staelin’s three-part series also addresses the central roles of hormones and natural light in calcium absorption and shows how elderly women with osteoporosis reversed the condition using a readily available herb that helped them absorb usable calcium.
