@contentandwell the natural approach works if you are under 30 and still building bone (there should be a huge emphasis on prevention during those bone building years). Once you are in the osteoporosis stage and of a certain age it's not going to work partly because of that imbalance in the bone remodeling process that comes with age. (Although you do need adequate daily amounts of calcium and vit d and my doctor said make sure you get enough protein). Also, at least the prescription meds undergo rigorous testing.
My doctor is always emphasizing resistance exercise and balance exercises. I fail in that regard.
Two words: don't fall.
For all of us who are the drug-sensitive types, treatment is challenging.
