chiropractic care is a natural approach to healing. We chiropractors help our patients try to avoid medications and surgery when it's feasible. Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC, of course, recognizes the importance of medication, and sometimes the necessary roles these interventions play, but we try to help our patients who so desire to cope without them.
A natural approach, nutrition, is often a vital component added into our La Grande chiropractic services' treatment plan. Science is continually discovering and publishing new information about nutritional health. For example, flax seed may benefit osteoporosis!
Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC's chiropractic team enjoys sharing new information based on recent findings which may help many of our La Grande osteoporosis patients. We've shared lots of information on bone nutrition and how important it is to feed your bones; particularly when you have 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. They summarize it by saying, eating flax seeds while on estrogen therapy or taking flax seed oil alone is best for supplementation to enhance bone-protection. (2)
So, La Grande osteoporosis sufferers, continue taking your calcium and Vitamin D3 for osteoporosis and coming to Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC for chiropractic care, but acquire a taste for
flax seed! See if you can find a La Grande 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!
