     In natural medicine many people speak about high dietary protein intake as a cause for a loss of bone density and osteoporosis. An interesting study of 615 people found that there was no dietary correlation. In hindsight, a more acid based diet, that doesn't focus on lots of fresh fruits and vegetables may cause the body to buffer the blood by drawing minerals from the bones. However, this is yet to be seen. Weight bearing exercises and a medium to larger body frame seems to be protective for osteoporosis. Some medications cause bone loss such as antacids and antidepressant medications. In the clinic, we typically recommend a healthy modified mediterranian diet, supplements to correct any nutritional imbalances and homeopathic remedies to help enhance bone remineralization.

Another study finds that protein intake helps synergistically with calcium stores in the skeletal system. Those who seriously restrict protein intake such as vegans may be at higher risk of osteoporosis. Those who are lacto ovo vegetarian may benefit because longevity studies show that lacto-ovo vegetarians tend to live longer, have less incidence of cancer, heart disease, obesity and bone loss.

     Women have had to suffer with menstrual issues for eternity. Sometimes women naturally tend to have a heavier flow than others and sometimes the menses gets worse as they age. Each person is treated as an individual at the clinic and a full casetaking is done to assess a person's unique needs. Some causes of excessive bleeding are related to fibroids, endometriosis, faulty liver and high estrogen and/or a lack of progesterone. In the clinic we use a variety of techniques to dampen down excessive flow, one is liver support, another is a menstrual tea that contains shepphards purse, yarrow and raspberry leaf. There are also a variety of homeopathic remedies that help with excessive flow like:

  • Crocus, which has flow after over exertion, miscarriage or labour. The discharge is dark and stringy blood. These types may have a nervous temperment. A strange symptom is that they may feel as if something is alive in their abdomen.
  • Hamamelis is a useful remedy for protracted uterine hemorrhages that come from a loss of tone in the blood vessels of the uterus. Hemorrhages may occur after labour or an abortion/miscarriage. The blood may be dark, black clots with watery thin blood mixed in. The flow stops at night.
  • Sabina is a remedy that helps with flow that is profuse, bright red blood. Like Hamamelis there may be dark clotted blood mixed into a watery red flow. There may be a dragging pain in the uterus that extends to the back and loins.

     One of the most used pharmaceutical drugs is antacids. Once people are put on them, they often don't go off them. Long term use of antacids are linked to low levels of calcium and magnesium, B12, folic acid and iron. It is also linked to osteoporosis and increased risk of fractures. This is likely due to poor assimilation of nutrients due to buffering the stomach acid. One deadly risk of antacid use is the infection C. Difficile. This bug is often contracted after antibiotic use and in hospitals. Homeopathy is a natural medicine that is suited to one's symptoms.

People who have migraines often suffer from food allergies to gluten, sugar, aspartame, MSG, food dyes and/or citrus. Often people who have migraines have blood sugar instability as well. Dietary interventions help a lot in these cases.

Some people with migraines are helped by improving nutritional deficiencies. Each person needs to be assessed for their unique needs but often people who have migraines are low in magnesium, b vitamins, omega 3 fatty acids, greens, vitamin K and GLA. Homeopathic remedies are tailored to the individual but some folks respond well to remedies like belladonna, gloinium, sanguinaria, kali phos, aconite, bryonia and nux vomica.
