Focus on Osteoporosis
Osteoporosis is a condition
that affects mainly women, particularly after the menopause.
many others are also at risk, as there are other risk factors associated
with the condition.
The condition basically
causes a thinning of the bone, which becomes less dense, and less
strong, and therefore more susceptible to breakages.
Often, the first sign of osteoporosis is a bone fracture caused by a
minor fall. At this stage it is often too late to treat the
osteoporosis itself, and the treatment is to limit the damage caused by
Nevertheless, it is possible to identify the presence of osteoporosis
before it has progressed to this stage.
carried out at Better Health Clinic some months ago showed that 93% were
at moderate high risk of developing osteoporosis.
There are tests available that can assess and monitor the condition and
also identify those at high risk of developing the condition.
usual test offered by orthodox medicine is a bone density measurement
either by ultrasound or by other means. This test measures the degree
of osteoporosis that has already developed, and can provide some
prediction (based on statistical calculations) as to whether the
individual will develop significant osteoporosis in the future.
However, a normal bone density test does not measure with any accuracy
whether osteoporosis is developing right now.
There is a different test available, which we offer at Better Health
Limited. This measures the degree of bone breakdown at any moment in
time. This gives an accurate indication of whether there is an
excessive degree of bone breakdown at the time of the test. It will
not tell us what is going to happen in the future, but will accurately
tell us if osteoporosis is developing right now.

products used in osteoporosis may be found on our website

Magnetic Field Therapy
This lesser known therapy is
one of the most effective therapies for conditions affecting bones,
including osteoporosis and fractures.
In fact, it is the only
therapy that has proven effects in reducing the time taken for bone
fractures to heal.
Why, therefore, has nobody
heard of Magnetic Field Therapy?
We believe that the only
reason that Magnetic Field Therapy has not been utilised by conventional
medicine is purely due to cost implications.

Therapy at HALF PRICE only £12.50 per treatment!

osteoporosis. It also has important tissue healing properties.
Black Cohosh also has an

in women, as it has a strengthening effect upon oestrogen. It also has
important anti-inflammatory and pain-killing properties.
Milk Thistle is included in
