DRAdrianMD on Osteoporosis - Bone Loss
[MUSIC PLAYING] Hi. This is Doctor Adrian M.D. This is a short video to introduce you to my osteoporosis treatment plan. I have been very proud of the successes I have had in my female patients who have had osteopenia and osteoporosis. I've had successes, or should I say we, the patients and I, have had such dramatic successes that the patients would like to go to newspapers and write letters to the editor to make the public know about the successes they are having in building their bone density back without using any of the typically prescribed medications for osteoporosis. This program involves diet, it involves hormone replacement therapy, which I feel is vitally important for building bones, and it includes the supplements that I show under my treatment plan, and under the products section of the osteoporosis section on this website under health concerns. I'd encourage you to read that to see what I would tell you to do, a very clear overview of the advice I give patients when they come to see me. I've had patients who have had osteoporosis who, while following this program diligently, have returned their bones to normal bone density. I have patients who, every time we check their DEXA scan their bone density just keeps going uphill continuously. The more consistent the patient is in taking the supplements and following the program, the more dramatic the results. This again is without any of the medications known as bisphosphonates, which have some serious potential side effects. A quick overview of the side effects would be that they essentially poison the cells that cutaway old bone. What happens is that the patient may be maintaining their bone density, which is simply a measure of their shadow that is seen with a weak x-ray. But the health of the bone is actually weaker. The bone is more brittle. They have such side effects, which we see more and more mentioned online or even in lectures I've attended, of patient's having their jawbone die, or having what's called an atypical femoral fracture. That means it's atypical because typically the femur, which is a large bone in your thigh, does not break up high at the metaphysis, which is where the bone should be the strongest. But patients taking bisphosphonates are known to have not just one atypical femoral fracture, but two. When the one leg snaps off, the other leg, due to the force on it, snaps off as well. Now to me, to quote a doctor friend of mine, to me this is a clue that maybe this medication is doing something to the bone that is not helpful. Another clue to me is when dentists have come to my office with their wives, who are new patients. They tell me strongly don't even consider putting my wife on a bisphosphonate. I'm a dentist. I know what they do to bone. So dentists are aware of the impact these medications can have on procedures such as implants or bone grafts. My patients do not take any of these proven medications that are typically prescribed by doctors, and they have excellent results in building not only bone density, but building real bone that has real strength. That's my quick overview on osteoporosis. Thanks for tuning in to Doctor Adrian's website today. We hope to see some day as a patient.
