On today’s show Dr Fitness and the Fat Guy had on opened the show with Dr Joel Fuhrman who explained the connection between osteoporosis and exercise and good nutrition.
Dr Fuhrman insists that exercise is way more effective than drugs. He said that harmful, often unnecessary drugs are being touted as the panacea for osteoporosis. He concedes that medications can have a slight benefit in severe cases, but for more mild cases he says they may offer minimal benefits to one’s bones and can cause unpleasant and serious
side effects. “These drugs are not only costly and unnecessary, in some cases, can be dangerous,” explains the good physician and author.
On the other hand, says Dr. Fuhrman, “with reasonable effort, you can take your bone health into your own hands. Osteoporosis can be combated most effectively without medication through proper nutrition and exercise.”
With osteoporosis occurring in epidemic proportions— it affects 8 million American women and 2 million men, causing 1.5 million fractures each year— it is never too early to start protecting yourself, says Dr. Fuhrman.
Dr. Fuhrman’s new DVD –> OSTEOPOROSIS PROTECTION FOR LIFE teaches and demonstrates exactly what women need to do to protect themselves against osteoporosis and hip fractures without drugs. He demonstrates the best 10 exercises for preventing bone loss and hip fractures and all the nutritional tips that are needed to combat this epidemic without drugs.
