Our bones are living tissue. As we age, so do our bones. I see several women a week who have been diagnosed with osteopenia and osteoporosis. Both conditions mean that there is active bone loss. Bone loss increases your risk of fracture. How can you prevent bone loss? For starters, we check for celiac disease, bone health markers, vitamin K and vitamin D levels.

I recommend eating a more alkaline diet. This means eliminating soda, sugar, coffee, gluten, reducing your meat consumption and increasing your fruits and vegetables. Focus on the green vegetables that are rich in Vitamin K.

A big risk factor for hip fractures in patients with celiac disease is chronic small intestine damage from gluten or the proteins in wheat, barley and rye.This risk can remain elevated long after the disease has been diagnosed and managed with a gluten-free diet. Repairing the gut with GOOD GUT products is a key to reducing your risk. Second Nature patients take DFH's Vitamin K, Vitamin D Supreme and Osteoben Medical Food for bone loss prevention.  

If you have had a total knee or hip replacement recently you will have less chance of complications if you are on hormone replacement therapy after the procedure. Hormone replacement therapy preserves our bone health.  Schedule your hormone replacement therapy appointment before you have your surgery so your prescription will be filled and ready to go when you get home.  

All products are in stock in our virtual pharmacy. Our supplement partners – Xymogen, Emerson and Designs for Health, are GMP inspected and approved by the FDA. Don’t waste money buying inferior products made in sub-standard factories. Get the best, worry-free!
