chiropractic care is a natural approach to healing. We chiropractors help our patients try to avoid medications and surgery when possible. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic, of course, understands the importance of medication, and sometimes the necessary roles these interventions play, but we strive to help our patients who so desire to cope without them.
A natural approach, nutrition, is often a vital component added into our Eugene chiropractic services' treatment plan. Science is continually discovering and publishing new information about nutritional health. For example, flax seed may benefit osteoporosis!
Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic's chiropractic team enjoys new findings, and this one, we can see, may help many of our Eugene osteoporosis patients. We've shared lots of information on bone nutrition and how important it is to feed your bones; particularly when you suffer from osteoporosis. For years, the benefits of calcium and Vitamin D3 - and even beer due to its silicon content and benefit for bone mineral density, but that's an article for another time! (1) - for osteoporosis have been touted.
A new study touts flax seed supplementation as being bone-protective. The researchers propose that the ALA (alpha-linolenic acid) in the flax seed oil, not necessarily the lignan fraction of flax seeds, is key. Their conclusion is that eating flax seeds while on estrogen therapy or taking flax seed oil alone is best for supplementation to enhance bone-protection. (2)
So, Eugene osteoporosis folks, continue taking your calcium and Vitamin D3 for osteoporosis and coming to Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic for chiropractic care, but acquire a taste for
flax seed! See if you can find a Eugene restaurant using flax seeds in their recipes. Try the seeds or use flax seed oil for cooking or in a salad dressing. You - and your osteoporotic
bones or pre-osteoporotic bones! - may very-well like and even benefit from it!
Check out the flaxseed research for
osteoporosis, then contact your Eugene chiropractic center, Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic, to work in an all-natural approach to osteoporosis with chiropractic!
