Jul 23, 2017 · Treating Osteoporosis in Bones, Joints & Muscles

I am 80 & a retired RN. I’ve been taking a supplement with Strontium in it. It strengthens bones and Vitamin K2 135 mg everyday. The K2 sends the calcium in your blood back to the bone. I’ve had two terrible falls & no broken bones. My MD said no to the injections & more calcium. Vitamin D also helps. Hope this info helps.

@sandytoes 14. I started you a long note about Fosamax & Boniva @ my medication program interrupted it & now I cannot locate it again.Ultimate Bone Support is OTC, no Rx needed. I have taken it for a good 5 years & cut to twice a week due to my husbands passing & now I am trying to survive on $1000/month Social Security. My rent went to $1000/month plus utilities, trash, etc. Not manageable. My son offered for me to move to his home in Tampa, FL & he has given me his Master Bedroom & bath. At times it can be difficult & over the holidays he was unemployed for 9 weeks. He found another job and started working again on Feb. 1. There are other annoyances but I won't bother you.Ultimate Bone Support comes from Advanced Bionutritionals, PO Box 8051, Norcross, GA 30091-8051 or Phone: (800) 791-3395. The lady with the company that I have dealt with in the past has retired. She came up with the formula and the fact that calcium supplementation does not help osteoporosis, but creates kidney stones. Vitamin D is good as are strontium,  hops and the other ingredients. You can not take calcium within 4 hours of the Ultimate Bone Support as it causes a reaction, so I always take the Bone Support at bedtime. I cut to twice a week after my husband died and I'm trying to Survive on my Social Security retirement of $1000/mo. My rent in Cary, NC went to $1000/mo plus utilities + other essentials like food, medications, etc. so, my son offered to have me move in with him in his home in Tampa, FL. I will have been here 2 years the end of July.I took Fossamax for five years, then it started making me vomit it back up after I took it. My Dr changed me to Boniva and the same thing happened. Now I have problems swallowing pills & sometimes food. I have to grind my food up small to eat it &!someyimes I still throw up. The Dr wanted to swiitch me to something else that was IV every 6 months but it got lost in the office & I never followed up. I wanted to take something natural. I hope this helps. I feel like I have a structure from the Fosamax. It is actually a poison and not good for any of us. I am an RN, BSN, I graduated from UCLA School of Nursing in 1958. I retired at 70, having worked all that time, I worked about all areas of nursing.All for now. Wish me luck on Friday, Feb.24, I'm having a cardiac cath & possible insertion of 2 stents.Sincerely,RobbiRoberta J Lumsdon

Advanced Bone Support is not prescriptive. I get it from Advanced Bionitritionals on the internet. They are in Norcross, GA. Just Advanced Bionitritionals.com

When I checked the X-ray reports myself, the report said osteopenia. I was on Fosamax for 3 years & when it was switched to generic, I immediately started having problems with vomiting and burning sensation in my esophagus then I was switched to Boniva. Then on studying the two drugs & side effects, I quit taking the Boniva, but continued with the Advanced Bone Support. I am now a widow on low income and have to watch my expenses, so only take the bone support twice a week.

Advanced bone support contains Strontium, vitamin mk2 & hops plus about 8 more ingredients. I have been taking it for 6 years & my bone density is good. I’m 79 years old and have had several bad falls with no broken bones. I was DX with osteoporosis in 2005. Did not have a bone density at that time, was DX by X-ray. I continue to take the Advanced Bone Support that I obtain from Advanced Bionitritionals in Norcross, GA.
