    Top 3 Foods for Osteoporosis!

    Top 3 Foods for Osteoporosis!

    In this video, Dr. Doug Lucas discusses three foods that can improve bone health, dairy, prunes, and animal protein. Dairy has been misunderstood, but research shows that it can increase bone mineral density and reduce bone turnover markers. Prunes have numerous studies supporting their benefits, including preserving cortical bone structure and reducing bone loss. Animal protein, particularly from meat, is associated with higher bone mineral density and reduced fracture risk. These food choices may not be suitable for everyone, but they can be powerful tools for improving bone health.

The content provided here should be top of mind for all of us!! Simply relying on our medical system as our North Star, is like relying on a drug dealer to help people get clean! The reality is that there is way more money in us being unhealthy.
Thank you for doing your part to educate the masses.
