I took another look at my DEXA bone scan results, one scan was borderline osteopenia and the femur scan was osteopenia.

I'm now taking a prescription for Vitamin D 50,000 IU once a week. The doctor also told me to take 3 doses of 500 mg Calcium+D each day. Currently I'm taking a calcium complex with (per dose) 500 mg calcium citrate, 250 IU vit D, 80 mg magnesium, 10 mg zinc, 10 mg B6, 1 mg each copper manganese and boron. I think I may get too much of the other things at this dose, so I'd like to mix it up a bit.

To strengthen my bones do I need equivalent large amounts of the other stuff? If I use just the one I have for all three doses, that comes out to 30 mg zinc, 30 mg B6 (in addition to what is in MetaNX 25 mg for a total 55 mg B6), 3 mg copper, mangances and boron, etc...sound like maybe too much? Maybe even still to little magnesium?

I'm thinking of getting one of the doses as phytocal or clearcal.  It may be best to get more than one of the doses there.

John might know...or one of the more knowledgable posters.

Have you thought about muscle testing yourself each item individually, and several in combination?

horsetail and vitamin D come to mind, also.

Hi Melissa,

since you are nursing these amounts do not seem too exaggerated.  Lola's suggestion of horsetail is excellent for silica.  Other sources of silica include horseradish.  A tablespoon of silicae from Hubbner (a German company) at a HFS is also a great source of silica.

exercising on a rebounder may greatly assist in remineralization as does weight training.

In summer sunlight is most helpful, but a ? for winter.

hope these ideas help ..........

I think Victoria recommends BioSil as a good bioavailable source of silicon.

Yes, I like BioSil because it is a form that is easier to assimilate than horsetail is.  About 6 drops a day, and it tastes like bilge water!  Or, maybe the bottom of a fisherman's boat!  Anyway, I put 1 drop in every 1 pint glass of water I drink, and I don't taste it at all that way.

Yes, yes, on John's suggestion of rebounding.  It builds bone very well, with almost no impact on joints, and you can do it indoors, too.

And there is an herb called Eucommia Bark.  You can get it in concentrated tincture form from Dragonherbs.com, where I get my chinese herbs.  Calling them is the best way to order.  
888-55-tonic.

I would think a little more magnesium would help.  And I like your idea of using some PhytoCal.  I like to mix up my calcium sources because I think they all are slightly different with slightly different benefits and availability.

I agree with John (resting).  Women lose bone mass during pregnancy/lactation.  They regain bone mass afterwards and the bone is stronger than before!

we do often this error in thinking that calcium is the fact...but it is not only, silicea is one of the best for the construction of osteoblasts and Vit D3 fix it ...but Boron is also
a component  which is very fine, it works also against so called growth-pains in bones....
or when bones get decalcifyd on older people ...
