Thank You Mothers – You Give A Lot

Mothers give a lot to their children – even their bones!  That is a hidden sacrifice, and a great gift.  That is why it is important to maximize your Bone Health before becoming pregnant.  During pregnancy and nursing, the baby comes first.

Pregnant and nursing Moms literally eat for two.  The baby gets first priority for Calcium, Protein, Vitamins and Minerals.  If the mother does not eat enough for both, she suffers.  If the mother is already deficient, both suffer.  

Chronic Pain

This week I spoke to doctors and nurses who run Pain Clinics.  The obvious connection is Vertebral Fractures requiring Kyphoplasty or Vertebroplasty.  If you only do the procedure, you have not solved the problem.  You must treat the Osteoporosis too, preferably with the Anabolic, Forteo, if you want to avoid further fractures.

Vitamin D is the other connection.  Successful treatment of chronic pain often requires enough Vitamin D3 to bring the 25-hydroxy Vitamin D level to at least 40ng/ml.  This is not yet widely known.  Not all clinics are testing for Vitamin D levels.  They should be!
