Strontium for Osteoporosis

Posted by Ellen [11114.8910] on September 24, 2010 at 19:30:36:

Strontium is a mineral that is being used in Europe to treat osteoporosis. Why isn't is being used here? Because it can't be patented! No money to be made. It builds bone density!

I found a great website--National Osteoporosis Foundation. People wrote in their success stories in treating their osteo without drugs. Exciting stories. I'm going to add that to the Cal Apatite with Boron arsenal.

I have yet to be able to add a link successfully here--sorry. But I found it by googling "osteoporosis success stories".

Ellen:

Strontium is easily available in the U.S. I use the Grow Bone system from Garden of Life/Vitamin Code, which contains strontium.

You can also get strontium by itself. Swanson Vitamins is one place where you can get strontium. There are other supplement companies as well that sell it.

Ellen, are you removing the http:// that is preprinted on the option url line before pasting your url?
Then just give it a link title.
That's it.

Bet Dr Walt will have 2 cents to add... :)

Do you have osteopenia or osteoporosis?

Do you know about prunes?! There was a study done by a Dr and he found people had good success when they ate 10 prunes a day. I'm going to incorporate that into my routine.

I dont know how long it takes to work. Due to my piss-poor bmd exam, I don't have to wait 2 years, I get to have it in 1 year. I'm frustrated by my inability to add the link. It's my fault, due to being a non-tech. I'm doing the rebounder, Cal Apatite, working out with weights and will add 10 prunes per day--thanks to Dr Arjmandi's research.

And gleaned from Dr William Davis protocol, I'm increasing my D3 and just ordered K2.

Sounds like a pretty good program to me. Perhaps, 50 years from now, we will have at least an inkling as to whether or not strontium is helpful in this condition.

Ellen I hate to burst your bubble but Dr. Duke doesn't show ANY biological activities for strontium, however he does show plums to be very active against osteo. Isn't that about the same amount of activity as soybeans and almonds have?

When I have time I will look through the chemicals and see which ones he says have the activity.

Antiosteoporotic 3 mg/man/day 500 mg/day 500-1,000 mg/day/wmn/orl 500-2,000 mg/day

STRONTIUM Fruit 0.33 - 51 ppm
No activity reported.

If you google strontium and check out the wikipedia posting, you'll see that the benefits of strontium on bone density was discovered in the 1950s.

I'm surprised that not more women are interested in this posting.

What I remember from the 1950's papers on strontium was the danger associated with radioactivity in milk products due to "fall out". Why are they not talking about that mow?

In Reply to: Re: Strontium for Osteoporosis--"fall out"? posted by Walt Stoll [93.8951] on September 25, 2010 at 13:28:55:

Mention strontium to most people, and they will almost always immediately think of strontium-90, a highly dangerous, radioactive component of nuclear fallout produced during atmospheric testing of nuclear weapons in the 1950s. As a result of above-ground nuclear testing, radioactive strontium spread throughout the environment and contaminated dairy products and other foods, and subsequently accumulated in the bones of both children and adults.

The media made us well aware that strontium-90 could cause our bones to become radioactive, causing cancer or some other horrible disease as a result. So, in the minds of many, strontium is a poison to be avoided, just like other toxic metals such as lead, mercury, cadmium and aluminum.

However, stable strontium&emdash;meaning nonradioactive&emdash;is nontoxic, even when administered in large doses for prolonged periods. It also appears to be one of the most effective substances yet found for the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis and other bone-related conditions.

Furthermore, repeatedly administering stable strontium can even gradually eliminate radioactive strontium from the body. The stable form slowly replaces the radioactive form in bone, and radioactive strontium is excreted in the urine...Strontium has been safely used as a medicinal substance for more than a hundred years. It was first listed in Squire's Companion to the British Pharma-copoiea in 1884. Subsequently, strontium was used therapeutically in the United States and Europe. As late as 1955, strontium compounds were still listed in the Dispensatory of the United States of America. For decades in the first half of the twentieth century, strontium salts were administered in dosages of 200 to 400 mg/day without toxic effects.

Thanks, k.

News to me. Now all we need to determine is whether, or not, non-radioactive strontium can help reverse or prevent osteoporosis. That will take a very large study, done over MANY years.

I am not likely to live that long so it will be up to you to let us know.

Walt, that article was interesting. They completed a 3-year study with good results. Here is the last paragraph:
Also, although the studies cited above used only strontium, plus calcium and vitamin D, I believe that even better results would be achieved by including other potential anti-osteoporotic substances such as a broad-spectrum mineral replacement that includes magnesium, vitamin K and boron, plus Xylitol, ipriflavone, calcium hydroxyapatite, progesterone cream (and in some cases, estrogen), and DHEA. A comprehensive regimen of synergistic bone-enhancing substances should provide the optimum regimen for preventing and treating osteoporosis.

Thanks, k. Did you know about Strontium? I've found it on ebay and will be buying the brand called Doctor's Best.

No doubt my longstanding bout of diarrhea and weight loss had a profound effect on my bone density. The endocrinologist said the weight loss hurt me the most. Which was caused by the diarrhea. I'd say I have a good case for medical malpractice, but I don't know if I want the brain damage.

Born in Birmingham, Alabama in 1929, James A. "Jim" Duke is a Phi Beta Kappa PhD (botany, 1961) graduate of the University of North Carolina. Jim, following military service, undertook postdoctoral activities at Washington University and Missouri Botanical Garden in St. Louis, Missouri. There he began studies of neotropical ethnobotany, his overriding interest to this day. From 1963 to 1965, Duke was ecologist with the USDA (Beltsville, Maryland), joining Battelle Columbus Laboratories (1965-71) for ecological and ethnobotanical studies in Panama and Colombia. During this formative period, Duke lived with various ethnic groups, closely observing their deep dependence on forest products. The first of some twenty books, his Isthmian Ethnobotanical Dictionary catalogs hundreds of Isthmian plants and their uses. Rejoining USDA in 1971, Duke had assignments relating to crop diversification, medicinal plants, and energy plant studies in developing countries. A popular lecturer on the subjects of ethnobotany, herbs, medicinal plants, and new crops and their ecology, he has taped dozens of TV and radio shows. There is a good biographic sketch in the Sep/Oct-1991 issue of EastWest magazine. The National Agriculture Library has a video history of Dr. Duke's career and development. Duke grows dozens of interesting plants on his six-acre farmette (Herbal Vineyard) with his wife and illustrator, Peggy. On Sept. 30, 1995, he retired after 30 years with the USDA.Before retiring, Dr. Duke brought his Father Nature's Farmacy database online at USDA. It is now, in Duke's retirement, one of the most frequently consulted database with the Plant Genome Project at USDA. The URL address is: http://www.ars-grin.gov/duke
Duke has already doubled the data content in the interactive database he maintains as Director, Duke's Herbal Vineyard, Inc. The database is especially useful for determining biological activities and healing potentials of food ands herbs.

Fluent in Spanish, Duke has studied and/or lectured widely, concentrating on tropical ecology, medical botany, and crop diversification. Widely travelled, Duke "cut his tropical eye teeth" in Panama where he was resident from 1966-68. While working on an encyclopedia of economic plants, he has collaborated with the National Cancer Institute on both their AIDS and cancer-screening programs and their Designer Food Program (to prevent cancer). His data bases on the ecology, nutritional content, folk medicinal uses and chemical constituents of economic plants are being widely utilized. Duke's major goal lately is to reverse the disdain for alternative medicines in the US, where, as in the Third World, a larger and larger percentage of the people can no longer afford first-world pharmaceuticals. Duke has a contagious interest in natural foods and nutritional approaches to preventive medicine. Between 1990-1992, Duke was advising the Designer Food Program of the NIH, then under the aegis of Dr. Herb Pierson. Lately Duke has been very active in ecotourism in Latin America and is teaching such themes as renewable rainforest products in the rainforests of Amazonian Peru. He has become an expert in the field of non-timber forest products.

With an aggregate of more then five years in Latin America, Duke has traversed parts of Argentina, Belize, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Guadelupe, Guatemala, Honduras, Jamaica, Mexico, Panama, Peru, Puerto Rico, and Venezuela. In Asia, he has had lengthy visits in China, India, Indonesia, Pakistan, and quick looks at Burma, Japan, Laos and Vietnam. In the Middle East, he has worked in Iran, Israel, Kuwait, and Syria, with quick looks at the Mediterranean countries of Egypt, Greece, Italy, Portugal and Spain. His only tours in tropical Africa include Madagascar, Sao Tome, The Ivory Coast and Zambia. Recently he has been teaching field ethnobotany regularly in Amazonian Peru, Belize and Costa Rica (mostly in the winter) and in the Maine northwoods (in summer only). In 1997, similar tours are planned for Kenya and Uganda.

You're welcome Ellen. No, actually I didn't know about Stontium until you brought it up. So I did a quick search the other night and found this article. I don't blame you for your interest in it, I am very interested as well. I will be having another scan soon, so I will assess then.

That's interesting about the weight loss being a cause for osteo. Didn't know that.

As for a lawsuit, that guy sounds pretty unstable. Not sure I would want to tangle with him, but I guess it could depend on just how much damage he caused you and how well you can prove it.

You're welcome Dr. Stoll.

Since I have osteoporosis, and it runs in my family, I have a vested interest. I must admit that there's that fear I could accidentally get the radioactive stuff, and that would be that. But on a serious note, it does sound promising, so if I hear of anything else I'll be sure to let y'all know.

I right click the menu and "paste" (http:// reappears)

If you look at osteo exercises--weight bearing, then it makes sense. The body itself if it is substantial, then it is weight bearing.

Plus, he had me on a high protein diet. Now I've come to find out that a high protein diet is bad for bone density. He should know that. He had a Phd in nutrition.

And the diarrhea caused me to lose weight and lose nutrients. I found a 4/2009 test for vitamin d, it was 58. Now I was just tested and I was 49. I've had a lot of bruising lately and I think that is associated with low vitamin k levels. My potassium levels were very low when my Dr tested me in May. That's very important to bone density.

So, he screwed me up every which way.

Well it sounds like he did screw you up alright. I don't know what the burden of proof would be, but I guess tests with before and after d,k, and potassium levels would help, as well as him being off base about the high protein. You will have to weigh the risks and benefits of suing him, and only you will know the answer. You will make a point, and you might get some money, but you will still be in the position you are in, bonewise.

Thanks, AT.

Thereby lies the rub. Different things need different lengths of time to become significant. This 3 year study really needed to be at least 30 years long to be significant for osteoporosis. This is why so few studies that need long term observation to be significant are even considered.

Sometimes when posting a link, a person might inadvertently add a space or dot, or something. A space is invisible so it wouldn't be easily noticeable. Maybe that's what is happening. I don't know...just guessing.
