Starting young, and not drinking soda. Also, I guess it is obvious, that soft drinks don’t work, even the zero calorie kind. The phosphoric acid that holds the bubbles in suspension, can also leach calcium out of the bones.
Preventing and curing osteoporosis and osteopenia. Starts Young.
I have researched building bones, and since I had osteopenia. Giving up wheat is number one, because it makes the body acidic, and calcium leaches out of bones to normalize ph. Prunes have boron and eating 8-10 a day helps with calcium and magnesium to strengthen bone. I also heard onions help too. Getting your calcium and magnesium from leafy greens, and some cheese plus almonds for magnesium helps. Not milk though, as milk causes some congestion mucus buildup and allergic like reactions.
Can’t eat 10 prunes? My friend Sallie buys Bone support from women to women.
My friends either soak 6 prunes over night and blend in green tea for a smoothie in the morning or stick an almond inside and roll a sticky prune in cocoa.
Weight bearing exercise will help build bone from 13-29 and walking, is good for older adults. Blood Type A benefits from yoga and Tai Chi
Taking calcium pills can create other problems. According to my biochemist husband; Calcium carbonate cleaves off into its respective salt ions, and does not get absorbed to help your bones. Leafy green vegetables, and your best cheese, your best almonds and almond milk plus, some Greek yogurt (Icelandic) (or Cabot Greek Yogurt) will help save your bones. If you do take calcium try calcium citrate or calcium lactate. Get your magnesium from the same green leafy vegetables and figs and almonds.
Manganese also found in almonds and your best bean, brown rice, and leafy green vegetables like spinach, and pineapple is especially good for ligament structure, especially in spine health
Vitamin D2K3 D3 with K2 Phyto D will help metabolize your foods and support stronger bones. The vitamin K in this prevents calcium from going to the arteries preventing plaques and heart disease.
More than adding prunes, change for nutrient dense alternative wheat noodles Try to move away from a grain based diet.
Response on a Facebook page:
I have a bone scan scheduled next week (a scan of my wrist showed osteoporosis ☹️) Wheat- (& a bunch of other stuff) free for 2 years (& I’m SO much healthier!) *getting the prunes out* I discovered I love them (like candy) but don’t eat that many (tho I do have boron in one of my supplements) Thanks, Kristi!

Dynaria helps increase the osteoblast (the bone building) formation and inhibits osteoclasts which break bone down. Decrease inflammation in bone. The Chinese definition is “mend broken bones” helps reduce inflammation in bone, and helps bone regenerate. Especially useful for bone health in the jaw. So if you want to keep your teeth in your jaw.
Icariin with Epimedium has a huge number of studies which show that together with calcium it helps to decrease bone loss in hips and spine in post menopausal women.
Bone Broth is highly beneficial for minerals, use organic grass fed animals, checked for heavy metals. Lead is the problem because lead and calcium have the same electrostatic characteristics. And lead can be incorporated into bone.
glucosamine and choindroitin is also found which is important in bone broth.
If you have a glutamate sensitivity, don’t boil your bones to death. (Too much glucosamine)
