My wife has been following your theories and in particular your advice on osteoporosis. She has religiously taken calcium apatite for two year and
just today got the results of her bone scan which
was done at the same lab two years ago.
To our surprise the results have not improved one
iota. Now she is 44 and I know that one might conclude
that no loss is still good. However, I should add that
she has chronic tendonitis so something else is going on
but we cannot guess what.....She has had this tendonitis
for years and had to retire from her music career due to
this condition. She does not appear stressed to me and
eats an excellent diet as well as all the top vitamin
and mineral supps. Her exercise is minimal though due to
the complication of tendonitis. As we all know, this does not help with her mild osteoporosis. What should
we look at to move forward on the mineral front....She is also low in aminos.

I heard you should not take a calcium supplement without a magnesium supplement because the calcium relies on magnesium to be absorbed and if you haven't got a lot of it it makes the bones worse.

Hi Maz,

How about Vitamin D and a sufficient strength in the stomach acid to metabolize the calcium?

Thanks, PaulC.

You do know, of course, that 2 years is the minmium length of time to see results with calcium apatite. Also, I would consider "holding her own" to be a positive effect since the natural course of this condition is that it would have gotten worse in these 2 years. I would be very interested in hearing what a followup test shows in another 2 years.

I hope she is doing underwater exercises 3 times a week.

I believe it still requires magnesium.

Maz,

That is part of the beauty of hydroxyapatite: ALL of the complementary minerals (plus the enzymes needed for constructing new bone) are in there already in the correct balance.

I heard that boron is a necessary mineral in bone growth. (Many minerals are, but boron especially.) So I don't know if the hydroxyapatite supplement has boron naturally, but it seems to be there in at least some of them. Is it in hers Paul?
