Osteoporosis treatment guidelines

Osteoporosis treatment guidelines Guidelines for the treatment of Osteoporosis and Osteopenia vary from country to country. In addition few of these guidelines contain any mention of the many Natural Treatments that are available for the prevention or reversal of Osteopenia or Osteoporosis.

Of course that is to be expected since these guidelines are issued for those in the medical community and most medical practitioners trained in 'Western medicine' are not familiar with the use of herbs etc. for the treatment of diseases.

But you will find variation by country - some medical traditions put greater emphasis on lifestyle factors, others give little notice of diet, physical activity or psychological factors that may impinge on health. I encourage you to check the guidelines for your own nation. And if you find links to other nations, that you would use the form at the end to contact me and let me know the urls so this page will be as complete as possible.
