About Pamela’s 16.4% Bone Density Increase

pamela1

Spreading a message that runs contrary to the mainstream medical world is not the easiest thing in the world to do.

But all of the criticism is 100% worth it when you receive a letter like the one I received from Pamela Ward.

Her letter was so moving, that I reached out to her by phone.

Here’s what she sent me:

“Last week I was given the good news that my bone density has increased by 16.4% and I’m absolutely thrilled with that. In August 2008 I was diagnosed with osteoporosis and was put on Fosamax which I took for 6 weeks. I felt so ill and uncomfortable taking it that I went back to my GP and she then prescribed Strontium for me. That didn’t make me feel any better or agree with me. And one afternoon I was searching the internet looking to see if I could find anything that would tell me what would happen if I gave up the medication in regard to my bones and came across your website. I decided to buy the program, found it very easy. If anybody’s out there wondering whether they should ditch their medication or wondering whether they should start on this program, all I want to say is go for it, because it really works! I’m absolutely delighted and I’m so grateful to Vivian for all her research and for making this available.”

Information can change your life.

Information can give you hope.

Information can help you understand that you are not helpless. You actually have a lot of power. If everyone in this world realized that, our society would change in a blink.

Pamela avoided a long experience with dangerous drugs simply because she found a better and safer path to her goal.

She found the information that showed her how much power she has to become healthy.

If I have one goal, it is that each of you will discover your own power to heal as well.

That’s the reason I created the Save Our Bones Program.

It changed my life and I look forward to the day it changes millions more.

If you want to discover the power you have over your own health, then order the program today.

All I ask is that, like Pamela, you keep me updated on your progress to healthy bones.

    Hi, I have just found out my mother has osteoporosis. She is 53 years old and has had a hysterectomy and is going through menopause. Her osteoporosis is in her lumbar and thoracic and is at 2.7%. The doctors want to put her on 6 monthly injections called Prolia. We have been going to naturopaths but can’t find anyone worth while talking too. We live in Australia and I was wondering if you know any specialists who treat patients with osteoporosis naturally such as yourself. I have got your book and print off your emails daily. Could you please recommend anybody? We are desperate for help and peace of mind. Thankyou! Hope to hear from you asap.

      Hi Rahna,
      I am so glad you’ve come across this site – welcome! The Save Our Bones community is worldwide, so we can’t possibly recommend local doctors for everyone. :) But I have written a post on traits to look for in a good osteoporosis doctor. You can read it here:

      http://saveourbones.com/the-top-three-traits-to-look-for-in-an-osteoporosis-doctor/

      Please don’t be worried! Osteoporosis is not a disease. Your mother can improve her bone health without dangerous drugs!

    Hello,

    I stumbled upon your website looking for a supplement for my daughter. I have been drawn to your great information.

    My daughter is 30 and has a disability. She has significant osteoporosis! Her Vit D level is low. But calcium level ok. Her Dr. is recommending 2000 IU of Vit D3 and 2000mg calcium. From my research I am finding that Calcium Citrate is better than Carbonate. I am confused about Coral Calcium. Is it better and or stronger? Also she needs a liquid preferably or a chewable. I have found some but they have lots of additives sugar etc. Any ideas?

    Also how much magnesium, zinc, manganese, boron etc is recommended for someone with osteoporosis?

    Thank you in advance!

    • Vivian Goldschmidt, MA May 20, 2014, 8:04 am

      Hi Jane,
      You are on the right track about calcium carbonate – it is not easily absorbed by the body. I suggest you take advantage of the free information here on the Save Our Bones site, and use the search feature to research calcium! :) In addition, the Ultimate Calcium Guide may come in very handy for you and your daughter. Here is a link where you can download it:

      http://saveourbones.com/the-ultimate-calcium-guide/

      Best wishes for both of you!

      • Jane Rogers May 21, 2014, 6:21 am

        Vivian,

        Thank you! Is the True Osteo a capsule that can be opened and added to liquid or applesauce. She cannot swallow a capsule so for her it needs to be chewable, liquid or a powder. I hope it will work because it is the best and only one I have found that includes the Vit K.

        Her Dr. did recommend 2000 IU Vit D3 and 2000 mg calcium. So it looks like this still won’t give her enough but maybe he is asking her to take too much.

        She also can’t do the exercises due to her disability.

        I am happy that I found your website.

        Jane

        • Jane Rogers May 21, 2014, 8:20 pm

          Ok great I am going to order it. In one of your articles I think I may have seen a discount for true osteo and I can’t find it now. If I am correct could you direct me to that?

          Thank you so much.
          Jane

        • Vivian Goldschmidt, MA May 21, 2014, 8:39 am

          Yes, TrueOsteo is a capsule that can be opened. :)

    • Vivian Goldschmidt, MA January 14, 2014, 5:09 pm

      Karin, I am glad to hear you’ve found some of the answers and alternatives you’re looking for here…glad you’re part of the Save Our Bones community!

    What I have read on UK nutrition sites recommends around 800 mgs of elemental calcium per day for older women, whereas the amount recommended in the US is 1200 mgs.

    If anyone is familiar with this difference and the reason for it, I would love to hear the answer.

    I’ve asked my doctor and she has no answer.

    Thank you.

  5. Dora June 10, 2013, 12:14 pm

    Hi, Vivian,

    Thanks for all your information in Save Our Bones. I think some of my friends are going to get your program as well.
    Unfortunately, I cannot eat yogurt, buttermilk or sour cream (any of those dairy products are too sour or smelly for me). I drink almond milk, but is that enough?

    Thanks.

    Dora

    • Vivian Goldschmidt, MA September 30, 2013, 7:13 pm

      Don’t be concerned, Dora – you don’t have to eat dairy products to obtain lots of calcium from your diet! Vegetables like broccoli and kale are rich in calcium, and a good, plant-based calcium supplement can make up for any deficiencies. :)

    WILL BE GOING IN TO GET MY DENSITY REPORT IN OCTOBER.

    HOPE IT WILL BE LIKE PAMELAS 16.4%.

    I take a yoga class 2x a week & walk 2 miles 4 days a week.
    I take the algae calcium with other bone healthy vit. included but seem to have a hard time eating correctly.
    Is the excercise program I am following enough? Please advise. Was wondering if I should carry small weights when walking?
    Joyce Smith

    • Vivian Goldschmidt, MA May 23, 2013, 2:40 pm

      Joyce, exercise is a very important component of bone health! But so is nutrition. :) I hope you’ll discover some of the really yummy, bone-healthy foods that are part of the Save Our Bones Program!

      I do not recommend ankle weights while walking; they can actually cause too much stress on the joints. However, wearing wrist or ankle weights while moving around the house can be beneficial. :)

    Hi my name is Anna.
    I’m currently taking Fosamax. I’ve read how bad it is for your body. I’ve talked to my doctor about it but he replied, well if you don’t take it you will become cripple.
    I would like to stop taking it, but I’m afraid, I don’t want to become cripple.
    Please advise.
    Thank you.
    Anna.

      I have not tried Vivian’s program.

      I am not a doctor.

      I don’t know what alternative to Fosamax to recommend.

      I can say that I don’t personally trust high tech pills too much and would surrender to them only after I have exhausted nutrition and exercise (rest, walking, yoga, whatever) and some of the safer alternatives. I place the onus on me to study my body attentively, change my behavior as I think is necessary, and research on the wonderful world of the Internet, first. It’s a judgement call, and it depends how much you prefer to trust someone else who really has very little to lose if you get worse slowly.

      Consider giving alternatives a try, then return to Fosamax if necessary, then try something else, etc.

      At a minimum, research what you can on Fosamax and on any alternatives to it. Then apply that information to your situation.

      Talk to your doctor about your alternative game plan if you feel more comfortable that way, but if the doctor doesn’t agree, challenge the doctor — for the sake of your life and very troubled mind — to give you the resources/papers s/he is using to make the Fosamax recommendation. If you doctor won’t give you anything useful or convincing to you personally, s/he loses some credibility to judge your alternative plan. [And you can always return to Fosamax later.]

      BTW, I came across Dr. Fuhrman recently (g-bombs), and really find his message convincing. You can google for youtube videos or other material. Basically, he has seen in his patients a world of difference between those who follow the traditional approach to medicine and those who resolve to get good proven nutrition. High tech food processing has apparently cheated us on most of the important nutrients found in nature. HInt, it’s a lot more than the 50 or so essential vitamins and minerals. The proof of the failure of the American diet is in hundreds of studies, in impressive testimonials, and in numbers that make the industry look bad (eg, such as the horrendous rates of worsening cancer, and horrible diabetes, high blood pressure, etc, in the western world, especially in comparison to many more primitive societies and societies that have not yet adopted the American diet, many of which are almost immune to some of these diseases).

      You also may already know from this website or others that many groups of people have stronger bones by relying on seeds, nuts, and other natural foods instead of dairy and supplements. [Also, I would not recommend taking too much calcium. I personally have reacted badly to calcium supplements since I already get plenty from food. My bones would hurt and be sensitive to pressure only when I take the supplements (which I have on very few occasions).]

      Diet aside, may I strongly recommend you consider taking 5000 IU of vitamin d3 supplement. [The alternative is to get UVB in proper doses, something difficult to do for most people.] Google for this 5000 number if you fear it is too large. And you may want to look as well at the researchers interviewed in many short videos by grassrootshealth.

      I have had lots of success with vitamin d3 in relieving body discomfort and pain (including chest pressure and skipped heartbeats) and in speeding up a heel injury I have been nursing for many months before recently starting up on supplements . [I have to walk a lot every day and haven’t been able to afford taking a long vacation to allow the heel (probably partially fractured) to heal. Just as almost predicted, my injury occurred in March.. the time when vitamin d is lowest in our bodies.]

      Good luck.

    I have recently been prescribed Boniva for osteopenia. My numbers are not bad, but the doctor wanted me to take this medication because of the pattern she has seen over the past six years on my bone density scans. The Boniva made me very sick and I told her I was not willing to take it. She then prescribed IV Boniva (injection once every three months)which I have not started yet. My accupuncturist has advised me not to take it, my pharmacist said she would think it through before starting this, but my gynecologist insists that this would be in my best interest.
    I don’t know what to do or who to believe.

  11. Evelyn Redding February 17, 2013, 5:14 am

    I, too, have been diagnosed with osteoporosis and have felt frightened. I bought the Saveourbones Programme last year and have yet to have another test. I am not finding it easy but am doing it to the best of my ability. Living in the UK has proved a little challenging finding the right supplements. I wonder how other Brits have managed. It would be nice to talk to others in the SOB community but I guess this is the next best thing.
