Today, I’m thrilled to share with you a just-published meta-analysis of no fewer than 14 scientific studies, all affirming that the Osteoporosis Reversal Program was right from the get-go.
A meta-analysis is significant, because it covers a number of studies on the same topic. To perform such an analysis, researchers collect multiple studies and review them for statistical significance and similarities.
In this case, the 14 studies were remarkably consistent, adding weight to the individual conclusions of each. In other words, if more than one study comes to a similar conclusion, that conclusion is pretty reliable as scientific truth.
The meta-analysis I’m referring to was just published in the prestigious Osteoporosis International journal (more on this later).
Even though the nutritional approach to reversing bone loss is starting to gain validity, the Medical Establishment still remains woefully behind.
Aren’t you glad you’re well ahead of the game?
Meta-Analysis Shows Savers Have It Right: Alkalizing Foods Rejuvenate Bones And Prevent Osteoporosis
If you have the Osteoporosis Reversal Program, and if you regularly visit this site and receive my e-mail updates, then you know the Program’s dietary recommendations revolve around maintaining an alkaline pH by balancing acidifying and alkalizing foods. The latter are mainly potassium-rich fruits and vegetables.These recommendations are based on solid research, some of it by Lynda Frassetto, who is part of the research we’re discussing today.
The study is a meta-analysis, and therefore broader in scope than an average study. It includes even more scientific journals, thus solidifying previous study results that point to the alkalizing effects of fruits and vegetables.
Scientists at the University of Surrey analyzed 14 studies that looked at the effect of alkaline potassium salts (found in fruits and vegetables) on the metabolism of calcium in the body, and their effect on bone health.
Dr. Helen Lambert, who led the study, is quoted as saying something that sounds exactly like it came straight out of the Osteoporosis Reversal Program Blueprint:
“Excess acid in the body, produced as a result of a typical Western diet high in animal and cereal protein, causes bones to weaken and fracture. Our study shows that these (potassium) salts could prevent osteoporosis, as our results showed a decrease in bone resorption.” 1
This clearly points to osteoporosis reversal in addition to prevention!
The Secret Lies In The Aforementioned Potassium Salts…
…specifically bicarbonate and citrate, which occur naturally in fruits and vegetables. These potassium salts reduce calcium loss while increasing the excretion of acid from the body, effectively raising the body’s circulating bicarbonate, which is powerfully alkalizing.
In other words, fruits and vegetables have a clear and obvious alkalizing effect on the body. (But you already knew that.)
As Dr. Lambert points out:
“This means that excess acid is neutralized and bone mineral is preserved.” 1
Potassium Salts Increase Bone Strength
Once again, Savers know that an alkaline system means strong and healthy bones. This meta-analysis confirms it, noting that potassium salts actually decrease bone resorption, thus increasing bone density and strength.
The Osteoporosis Reversal Program Concluded The Same… 7 Years Ago!
Here’s another quote:
“The bottom line is that bones become weak when there is too much accumulation of acid waste in the body because the calcium that would normally remain in the bones is used to correct the (acid pH) imbalance. For that reason, there is a direct relationship between bone loss and body acidity; when acid levels in the diet are high, the body neutralizes the acid with calcium from the bones.”
No, that quote is not from the meta-analysis – it’s actually from Chapter 7 of the Osteoporosis Reversal Program.
In fact, the Program is its own meta-analysis in a way; it takes the information from a variety of studies and draws conclusions based on many sources of research.
Amazing! Mainstream Osteoporosis Organizations Published This Meta-Analysis
It’s quite astonishing that Osteoporosis International published this study because it is:
“[…] a joint initiative between the International Osteoporosis Foundation and the National Osteoporosis Foundation of the USA.” 2
Both osteoporosis foundations are well-known drug “peddlers,” making this a revolutionary publication. They are essentially admitting what Savers already know: a drug-free, nutritional approach to bone health works.
Meanwhile, Big Pharma Continues Searching For The Osteoporosis “Magic Pill”
…in the form of the “miracle” osteoporosis drug. So far, such futile attempts have ended disastrously, with these drugs causing dangerous (even deadly) side effects.
Unfortunately, it will be a long time before the truth is accepted by the Establishment, and doctors will continue to prescribe osteoporosis drugs for years to come.
Nonetheless, the mainstream publication of this meta-analysis is a step in the right direction, and we should most certainly celebrate that!
I Pledge To Continue Bringing You Common Sense, Cutting-Edge Research On Bone Health
You can rest assured that as time goes by, the Osteoporosis Reversal Program protocol will become widely accepted as the most reliable way to reverse and prevent osteoporosis, even by mainstream standards.
And I promise you that I will continue to work tirelessly to bring you the most up-to-date, scientifically-proven natural information on bone health.
I'm committed as ever to bringing you the truth about rejuvenating your bones without drugs – and together we will bring others on board.
Till next time,
