Aug 15, 2012 · osteoporosis in Bones, Joints & Muscles

Did the forteo shots improve your bone density.? It didn’t for me. They wanted me to go back on Fosomax which didn’t help before so I refused. Now they want me to do Reclast or Prolia. The Mayo Clinic report on Reclast has so many side effects it’s scary.

I took Fosomax for several years and it didn’t help my bone density. Neither Did Forteo (year and a half). The doctors said “Well, at least your bones didn’t get worse!” I went on an alkaline diet, taking no meds . After a year: My bone density didn’t get better but it didn’t get WORSE either. Now they want me to take RECLAST. I read the Mayo Clinic report on that stuff – scarey!…….. tons of possible side effects.

The alkaline diet that I’m working on is more like what your mother always told you “eat your fruits and veggies” 😉

Google “Women to Women” for the clinic out East that has lots of stuff they email you about a natural way to treat Osteoporosis.
I signed up for their supplements which are pricy, and test my urine pH several times a week. It took a while, approx a year, to get my urine into the alkaline range. I don’t like red meat much, cut down on breads and pastas, but can do some now and then. Seem to be doing fine on Chicken, fish, veggies, etc. They have a book that lists acidifying foods vs alkaline foods.
