Fort Wayne Osteoporosis and the Gut-Bone Axis 07/13/2022The gut-BONE connection? Yes! The gut is connected to a myriad of body functions with the term “gut-brain” connection likely being the one you’ve heard of more. The gut-bone connection – “gut-bone axis” as one article calls it - is garnering attention. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc treats Fort Wayne chiropractic patients with bone conditions like osteoporosis, so this topic is quite important. HOW ARE THE BONE AND GUT CONNECTED? This issue of gut-bone connection has spread such that Osteoporosis and Bone Research Academy of the Royal Osteoporosis Society met in October 2020. This assembly conversed about past, present, and future research projects about the interaction of diet, medication-use, immune development, health and lifestyle and the function of the human gut microbiota as they influence bone development in youth and bone maintenance and decline in more mature folks. The valuable use of oral probiotics to possibly reduce bone turnover and stop bone loss was pointed out, also. (1) HOW IS THE GUT-BONE CONNECTION RELATED TO OSTEOPOROSIS? As the most frequent metabolic skeletal disease, osteoporosis affects many people, men and women, because of its weakening of the skeletal structure giving rise to bone loss. Any distress of the gut microbiota can disturb the bone remodeling balance and affect bone metabolism. (2) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc aims to help our Fort Wayne chiropractic patients avoid and/or treat osteoporosis. TREATING OSTEOPOROSIS The occurrence of postmenopausal osteoporosis has grown recently along with the rapidly aging worldwide population. Treating the “gut-bone axis” was described as a balance of hormones, immunity, nutrient metabolism, gut microbiota metabolites, and intestinal permeability. (3) Using traditional Chinese medicine’s Qing’e Pills was shown to regulate intestinal flora to improve postmenopausal osteoporosis by increasing bone mineral density, altering gut microbiota, and positively influencing inflammatory factors. (4) A polyphenols-rich vinegar extract was described as beneficial in controlling blood glucose and lipidemia in diabetic rats as well as decreaing inflammation, boosting short chain fatty acid content, and restoring gut microbiota. (5) Ask Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc about the positive impact of treating the vagal nerve origin in the gut to have an effect on the gut. A sizable topic for another article, the vagus nerve - being the longest cranial nerve in the body that regulates gut function as well as assists in the control of cardiovascular, respiratory, endocrine, and immune systems – responds to treatment.
