After going thru chemo and and radiation for BC, I now find out that I have osteopenia (almost osteroporosis of the hip), I'm 54, lots of pilates, walk 15 miles a week but thin and small boned. I have also had lots of joint and muscle pain. I'm pretty depressed about this. Have also decided not to take an aromatase inhibitor that would increase my bone risk. My confusion is.... what supplements should I be taking, how much and when. I need D, calcium, K, magnesium, boron, ..... I probably should also be taking anti-inflammatory supplements as well (I ordered ArthroPro). I looked at Bone Restore by LEF and they recommend that you take all 5 pills at night. I thought you were only to take 500 mg of calcium at 1 time. I am really confused, doing a lot of research but there are a wide range of opinions. Too may different things to take, don't want too much of anything (there is redundancy between the supplements. Has anyone worked out a protocol for themselves that seems manageable and successful?? I can't take any type of estrogen. I'm sure there are many folks who have joint and bone issues. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

You might consider trying some DLP or phenylalanine. This helps with both the pain and the inflammation of RA. You may not have RA but DLPA can help with chronic pain. DLPA is a natural remedy for chronic pain and not meant for accute pain problems.

I think many people have an osteo problem despite the fact that they have followed the basic advice of calcium and magnesium and exercise. I think you may want to consider some the trace minerals and especially copper. Too much estrogen means your body stores copper and will not excrete it. So if you have a hormonal imbalance of any kind this can effect your mineral transport and your body's ability to balance minerals as well. Too much copper may be a possibility but it may also be some other trace mineral too.

You might consider getting a hair mineral analysis perhaps to pinpoint any mineral imbalances.

Digestive enzymes like bromelain (and other protease enzymes) do have anti-inflammatory properties. I don't think that there is any potential harm from supplementing digestive enzymes, and they may help you absorb all the nutrients in your food besides. But some think taking the enzymes on an empty stomach helps them get into your bloodstream to help with the inflammation. So it might be good to take enzymes with meals and on an empty stomach in between meals too.

Yes, it is confusing to sort all this out. I think the best thing is to find a good doctor who will do the proper tests to figure out what your body is missing. Good luck.

My husband also has osteopenia - probably as a result of radiation treatment for prostate cancer. We take lots of supplements but the ones we're targeting for the bone density issue is a product called "Bone Up" by Jarrow and also vitamin D - which I get here at LEF.

After reading all the recent research on vitamin D and it's association with prostate cancer (also breast cancer) I had my husband get the 25,hydroxy blood test to measure where his levels were at. He measured 7ng/ml --- which is waaaaaay too low. Average levels should be around 50 ng/ml and optimal levels should be much higher.

If you are interested in reading more about vitamin D check this website:

The Vitamin D Council: http://www.vitamindcouncil.com/

I have autoimmune issues so my husband and I both take 5000 iu of D3 every day. However, I should note that we also have our levels checked - with the 25,hyroxy blood test -- several times during the year to monitor what are levels are. We've been on this program for over a year now. I'm also hoping that supplementing the D3 will also keep the flu at bay -- even though we get the flu shot.

I hope this helps...
