Didronel v minerals for osteoporosis

MagazineAugust 1993 (Vol. 4 Issue 5)Didronel v minerals for osteoporosis

I was very interested to read about Didronel (WDDTY vol 4 no 3)


I was very interested to read about Didronel (WDDTY vol 4 no 3). I took this for osteoporosis from April 91 to April 92.

A bone scan in April 1992 showed virtually the same density as the 1991 scan. This was put down to the good effects of Didronel. After 12 months without taking the drug, a new scan a year later showed a marked improvement so much so that I was told I didn't need to come in anymore.

For two years I took a multi mineral type tablet plus extra calcium and magnesium and ate a good diet. I would probably do even better if I could find out more about what to do. The obvious source is the National Osteoporosis Society, but they are very scornful of non drug treatments. E H, Kingston....

Several scientific studies recently highlighted in WDDTY (vol 4 no 2) prove that taking extra calcium can prevent or improve osteoporosis. You might also have a look at Menopause without Medicine by Linda Ojeda (Thorsons), which outlines a comprehensive non drug approach to osteoporosis including supplements, diet and exercise.
