Fort Wayne chiropractic Nutrition Tip for Osteoporosis: Flaxseed Oil12/27/2011chiropractic care is a natural approach to healing. As chiropractors, we help our patients try to avoid medications and surgery whenever possible. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc, 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 manage pain without medication or surgery. A natural approach, nutrition, is often a vital component added into our Fort Wayne chiropractic services' treatment plan. We never know what may arise in the literature as being beneficial. For example, flax seed may hinder the progression of osteoporosis! Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc's chiropractic team enjoys sharing new information based on recent findings which may help many of our Fort Wayne 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 proclaims flax seed supplementation as being bone-protective. The researchers suggest 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, Fort Wayne osteoporosis people, continue taking your calcium and Vitamin D3 for osteoporosis and coming to Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc for chiropractic care, but acquire a taste for flax seed! See if you can find a Fort Wayne 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!
