Natural Osteoporosis Tests

Don't guess how to improve your bone density
with natural treatments.

Do these natural osteoporosis tests before starting your
natural treatment for osteoporosis.

Blood Tests 

1. Osteocalcin  – measures growth of the bones, too low: little bone growth, too high: too much breakdown

2. Homocysteine  – chemical in the body that if too high damages the blood vessels.

3. 25-hydroxyvitamin D3 – helps absorb calcium and magnesium. Also pulls calcium off the blood vessel walls and improves circulation.

4. hsCRP – inflammation can breakdown the bones, damage blood vessels and increase risk of heart attack and stroke.

5. Alkaline Phosphatase – if elevated (even in normal range) shows rapid bone turnover

6. TSH – hyperthyroid increases bone loss

7. Calcium – if elevated (even in normal range) shows too much calcium may be released from the bones into the blood or calcium is not being placed into the bones. May give insite into parathyroid issues.

8. Protein and Albumin – protein is necessary to make collagen in the bone, nails, hair and skin.

 

Urine Tests 

1. Pyrilinks-D (DpD) – measures bone breakdown. Too high – too much breakdown. Too low – not enough growth.

2. Urinalysis (UA) -

a. pH – acid: not enough minerals. alkaline: too many minerals loss through kidneys

b. Specific Gravity – mineral and water balance

3. Oxidative Free Radical Damage – High to Severe amounts of oxidative (free radical) damage is a correctable risk factor.

 

Saliva Tests 

1. Saliva and Urine Detox pH – acidity of saliva and urine.

2. PostM – Saliva Hormone Test for Estradiol, Estrone, Estriol, Testosterone, DHEA and Progesterone. All bone cells have receptors for each of these hormones.

 

Stomach Acid Test 

Metagest/Gastracid HCL Challenge – if your stomach is low in acid you will not absorb your minerals, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and protein properly. Acid blocking drugs can increase the risk of osteoporosis by 200%.

 

Circulation

DynaPulse Wave Analysis: poor vascular circulation decreases nutrients supplied to the bones.

Ankle Brachial Index (ABI): poor vascular circulation decreases nutrients supplied to the bones.
