Thanks for the add. İ just had a dexa scan and t-score was bad. I went from mild osteopenia to severe osteoporosis in a short period due to horrific gut issues caused by antibiotics. I plan to address naturally. Any good book recommendations to read? Also any thoughts on the urine DPYD test (deoxypyridinoline)? Thanks.
there is a book on on weight lifting by Dr Miriam E Nelson, and there is one on VitK, by Dr Kate Rhéaume-Bleue.
Can you please tell me the title of the weight lifting book by Dr Miriam E Nelson. Many thanks
Try milk kefir, great probiotic, really helps gut issues, there is loads of advice on here
I can't do dairy. Can't wait to dig into the info.
What did the antibiotics do?
Destroys good bacteria (essential to health), allowed overgrowth of bad bscteria and yeast caused leaky gut ehich then sets off an entire cascade of systemic symptoms. Literally destroyed my perfect life.
Denise Kerr, I can't do dairy either.... COW DAIRY. However goat molecular structure is more compatible to humans than cows. Afterall, cows milk is designed to grow calf bones into a 2000 pound bull bones. I make my own goat kefir. No problems.
judy, I love goat yogurt and goat kefit but everytime I try it, I get immediate pain in my joints. I think I need to heal my gut some more.
I had gut dybiosis caused by years of antibiotics for frequent chest infections. The only thing that healed my gut was the GAPS diet. There is no point whatsoever in wasting your money on supplements until the gut is sorted because you are not absorbing them. I wasted £100's on it. Gaps diet healed and enabled me to absorb from food and supplements again (and my chest infections are much less frequent) also, within weeks on the diet my Ferritin started to rise all by itself with no supplements at all. The book is an interesting read for someone like you and me.
sarah what books should I get for gaps diet to start it sarah

I am doing bone stock and egg yolks for six months now. My holistic md said it will take two years to repair my gut. My weight was 78 lbs at my worst. I am now 104 lbs (4 ft, 11 inches). Still have malabsorption and nutrient deficiencies but starting to see some improvements. Still have lots of inflammation because of the muscle pain and stiffness. But working on it.
Good to hear
I refuse to touch any rx for any reason whatsoever (even if I am dying).
sarah, how long did it take you to heal your gut?
About 8 months, that was strict GAPS diet
I transitioned off it a year ago but still have meat stock (not bone broth- there is a difference) and kefir daily. I have the odd naughty treat and I am taking minerals which I am a absorbing now
google.... The Paleo Diet.... And Bartonella
I am so disappointed that my osteoporosis is so bad and I have now fractured my back which is so painful. Not feeling too good about it all
I have bad gut issues too. Have spent the last year getting them under control. Took no supplements until I was healed. In addition to major food restrictions I used Restore for Gut Health (Amazon), and am taking Low Dose Naltrexone (must be compounded). http://www.drwhitaker.com/what-is-low-dose-naltrexone/
try to avoid opiates.... Stick to the Paleo Diet
connie. Yes I am familiar with both of those.
denise I had a diverticulitis attack last December and I had Cypro and Flagyl and only 5 days had terrible side effect from cypro stopped and my life has never been the same, never had antibiotics for over 20 years, I had augmentin in march and it helped b then got leaky gut and ibs, I have been gluten and dairy free no high fiber and I am still trying to heal with natural things, I do coconut milk and yogurt, followed the pain free foods diet, I may try gaps next, I have alot of inflammation in my body, and also a thyroid issue new since March it's been a tough year
Has anyone checked into "Medical Medium"? He has a 28 day cleanse. I'm thinking of getting the book
His philosophy is a bit too far out there IMO.
I know what you are saying. But need to figure out gut issues and NP are very expensive
