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.
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) 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.
Vitamin D3 with K2 Occubrite will help metabolize your foods and support stronger bones.

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!
