Vivian Answers Day #25: Compression Fractures, High Blood Pressure, Olive Leaf Extract, Alkalizing Grains, Painful Actonel Side Effect, and More!
Question & Answer #1
I have osteoporosis and decided not to take the Fosamax my doctor prescribed. So I’m on the Save Our Bones Program and I’m feeling great. The problem is that I have high blood pressure for many years and I’m taking two medications for the pressure. I’m really worried that the drugs could hurt my bones. I asked my doctor and he says that I need to take them. What should I do? Please help me!
You’ve made the right choice, and I’m glad you’re feeling good on the Program. You’re also rightly concerned about the blood pressure drugs. Drugs are acidifying chemicals. Fortunately, high blood pressure is easy to control without taking drugs. Your doctor probably doesn’t even know this, but there are foods, herbs and other natural ways to lower blood pressure more efficiently than with toxic drugs.
Keep pursuing the truth!
Question & Answer #2
I have osteoporosis. I now have a compression fracture at T10 on my spine, which the Dr suspects is from osteoporosis. I will have a bone density scan tomorrow. Is there any option for me, I don’t want to take meds.Thanks!
I hope your compression fracture has healed and that you’re pain-free. Now to answer your question, of course there’s an option to taking toxic osteoporosis drugs! With the Save Our Bones Program you can treat osteoporosis without taking any chances of suffering from the terrible side effects of drugs. Your bones will get exactly what they need, so they’ll get stronger and healthier.
I urge you to read Real Life Results from community members that have gotten rid of osteoporosis by following the Program.
They did it… You can do it too!
Question & Answer #3
Hi Vivian, thank you for all you do. Your information has helped me a lot. I have read that olive leaf supplements are good for bone health. What is your opinion?
Thanks for your kind words! To answer your question, studies have shown that the polyphenol oleuropein found in olive leaf stimulates osteoblasts, cells that deposit new bone and replace old bone.
But there’s no need to take a supplement to enjoy its benefits. You can use extra virgin olive oil in your salad dressing. And for cooking you might prefer extra-light olive oil since it has a more neutral flavor and a higher smoke point, at 468 F.
Stay naturally healthy!
Question & Answer #4
Is it true that millet and buckwheat are alkaline forming?
Yes, both millet and buckwheat are alkalizing. In fact, they’re listed as such in the Save Our Bones Program. Both are also gluten-free, so don’t let the name “buckwheat” fool you!
Here’s a delicious and 100% alkalizing millet recipe:
1 1/2 cup cooked millet
1/2 cup cooked and mashed sweet potato
3 tablespoons plain unsweetened yogurt (preferably organic)
Sea salt to taste
1 tablespoon extra-light olive oil
1. Mix together all ingredients except olive oil and form into 6 patties.
2. Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.
3. Fry patties on one side, and turn when crisp and golden. Fry other side until crisp and golden.
4. Serve hot with a little yogurt on the side and your favorite alkalizing veggies.
Question & Answer #5
Dear Vivian, I have been on Actonel for about 6 years, and gave it up a month ago…most of the pain in my shins has stopped, but upper arms still very painful when I raise them..do you think this pain will go and if so, how long should it take?
I’m so sorry that you’re suffering because of the osteoporosis drug you faithfully took! Now that you’ve stopped the Actonel, you’re on the right path for your bone health and your general health. The good news is that bisphosphonates that are circulating in the bloodstream are eliminated in approximately three to four months. And chances are your aches and pains will disappear once that happens.
If you want to accelerate the drug’s elimination, you can try OsteoCleanse™, the 7 Day Bone Building Accelerator. It also helps you get rid of other toxins, achieve a more alkaline state, and feel better.
To your natural health!
