CONDITIONS WE CAN HELP WITH...

Osteoporosis

Statistics show that osteoporosis affects 1 in 4 women and 1 in 40 men during their lifetime causing a loss of calcium from the bones meaning that bones become brittle and fracture easily.

It is now recognised that osteoporosis is not a simple lack of calcium, which is put right with calcium supplementation, many other factors are involved such as the activity of vitamin D, your levels of oestrogen as well as other secondary conditions.

From a nutritional approach, there are three contributory factors that can be addressed;

1. Excessive protein consumption - leading to leaching of calcium from the bones to neutralise excess blood acidity.

2. Oestrogen dominance.

3. Deficiency of bone building nutrients; calcium, magnesium, vitamin D, Vitamin C, zinc, silica, phosphorus and boron.

These factors can be addressed through nutritional intervention and lifestyle changes. Fractures can be significantly reduced by providing your body with the building blocks for bone building. Your Nutrition Mission nutritional therapist will identify and address any contributing factors and provide you with your personal treatment plan for you to follow.
Back
Nutrition Mission have been invaluable in giving me nutritional advice and sorting out any nutritional problems I have. Also they looked at my lifestyle and have gone out of their way to get advice and publications to me. I have had problems with insomnia, weight-gain problems and general lifestyle, so my nutritional therapist has given great information as to how to look at my daily diet coupled with my ailments, which supplements to take and while the laymen guesses at a lot of this Nutrition Mission have clearly shown me the way forward!
