Take two aunts of a friend of mine...
After living through decades of monthly cramps, 5 childbirths between them, then decades of childbearing followed by the menopause, both
ladies were diagnosed with osteoporosis - a condition where the bones become weak and easily broken.


I hate to admit it but...... being a woman can be hard. I know that osteoporosis affects men too. It's just that post-menopausal women are by far the most at risk.

Thing is, I don't know what's scarier - being diagnosed with osteoporosis, or suffering the potential side effects of the anti-osteoporosis drugs.

 Both women were given drugs to deal with it... but only one of them had any success. And you won't believe the reason why... Why one aunt beat osteoporosis and the other one didn't?

 This is going to sound really bad... in fact it sounds like a really stupid thing to do... But only one of my friend's aunts took their drugs. The other just ditched hers in the bin! Of course, her family didn't know she was doing this at the time.

If they did, they'd have probably pinned her to the ground and forced her to take it. Anyway, without anyone knowing, she just spat them out and started researching natural ways to reverse osteoporosis.

 On her next assessment a year later, the doctors were amazed to find that her bone density had increased significantly, and with no adverse side effects.

Whatever you're doing, they said, keep doing it. And the other aunt? The sensible aunt who took her medicine...?

 She was the one that ended up paralysed with pain, unable to walk for two days. She was unlucky - it was an unusually bad reaction. When she stopped the drugs, the pain stopped too.

So how did the aunt who refused to take her prescription drugs 'cure' her condition?

 The doctors wouldn't have believed her secret if she'd told them, and you might have trouble believing her as well.

 Because as you're about to discover, her 'remedy' was so simple, so easy and effective, it's a scandal so few people know about it.

 A proven natural alternative in your fridge. Scientists have known about a healthy, natural alternative for at least the last six years. It's just no one thought to tell us about it. Why?


The only reason I can think of is that there's no money to be made from it. Because even though this remedy has been proven incredibly effective, it's cheap as chips. In fact, chances are it's already sitting in your fridge door.

 The best source of natural calcium in the world is something you'd normally throw away! When the 'cured' aunt started looking for natural alternatives to treat her osteoporosis, she came across an amazing study.

 Back in 2002, Dutch researchers took a group of post-menopausal women and gave half of them a calcium carbonate supplement and the other half calcium from eggshells.

After a year, the bone density in the women taking the calcium carbonate had gone right down. But the bone density for the women taking the eggshell calcium had significantly increased. Interesting, isn't it?

 A lot of supplement companies make good money out of perpetuating the belief that if you take a calcium supplement your bone density will increase. But that's not how it works, as the dutch study shows. Your body needs more than just calcium for healthy bones. B vitamins, vitamin C and D, phosphorus, magnesium and are all known to be essential.


And that's why eggshell calcium works so well. Eggshells are made up of calcium and 26 other elements. In fact, they're very similar in content to your bones and teeth.

 Don't worry, I'm not suggesting you sit down for breakfast, eat your dippy egg and then crunch your way through the remaining shell. Thereis an easy, more palatable way to extract all those nutrients.


How to make your own super calcium supplement

Wash some empty eggshells in warm water and let them dry
2. Break them into small pieces and grind them into a fine powder. Coffee
grinders work best but a blender or even a pestle and mortar will do. Store the powder in an airtight jar.

3. Mix 1/2 teaspoon of powdered eggshell with the juice of half a freshly squeezed lemon.

(Yes, lemon again! Have you bought YOUR tree yet?Lemon Trees)

The solution will start to bubble and foam.

4. Leave at room temperature for 6-12 hours and that's it! It's ready to take.


Half a teaspoon of eggshell gives you about 400mgs or calcium citrate, which is the recommended amount you should take each day.

 Ever since my friend's aunt started taking eggshell calcium, she's been regaining bone density. All her sisters take it now.

 If you've been diagnosed with osteoporosis, why not give it a go?

And while we're on the subject, here are a few more natural, proven ways to help prevent osteoporosis:

Up your intake of essential fatty acids.
Fish oil containing EPA and GLA has been shown to protect against
osteoporosis. There are plenty of fish oil supplements in the shops these days - and there's always cod liver oil.

 Or just make sure you enjoy some salmon, mackerel, sardines or other oily fish three times a week.

Exercise your way to healthier bones
More than 100 studies show that regular exercise such as brisk walking, running, aerobics, tennis and badminton strengthen your bones and lower your risk of getting a fracture.

- Enjoy the sunshine.

Vitamin D increases the amount of calcium and magnesium
your body absorbs from food. Better still, it makes sure more calcium enters the bones and stays there.
Your body produces it when your skin comes into contact with sunlight. So just make sure you get outside for at least 20 minutes a day.

Eat a varied, wholefood diet.

It goes without saying, right? But since calcium is best absorbed with all the other trace elements we've been talking about, it makes sense to eat it in its natural form.
Almonds and broccoli give you plenty of calcium along with magnesium,
phosphorous, B vitamins and iron - all essential for healthy bones.

- Don't cook with aluminium. 

Studies have shown that aluminum can inhibit the parathyroid gland which can then lead to osteoporosis. So instead of using foil to cook in the oven, use baking paper.
To store food, use a glass container. Avoid plastic containers, especially soft, flimsy ones.

They're full of phthalates which have been linked to cancer. But that's a
whole other story...
