As a chiropractic physician specializing in helping patients achieve optimal health through improved skeletal mechanics, it makes perfect sense that I extend this expertise to improving skeletal metabolic health. After all, recent research shows us that bone metabolism is intricately and inseparably related to the health of the rest of the body. There is no separation.
When a person develops osteoporosis it is typically not due to some type of isolated bone issue. Osteoporosis is a whole-body issue. Specifically, osteoporosis develops when immune system dysfunction collides with the body’s energy regulatory mechanisms. By improving whole-body health and paying specific attention to improving the body’s immune system and energy regulation, bone health improves. And, as bone health improves so too does the health of the rest of the body.
If you want a better understanding of the most recent scientific research underlying bone loss, check out the webinar I presented to the Association of New Jersey Chiropractors. Chiropractors are often light years ahead of the traditional medical model in understanding how everything in the body fits together and how it is all related. We understand that body dysfunction leads to disease and through improving function we reduce disease. In the words of Thomas Edison…”The doctor of the future will give no medicines but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.” He was a smart guy.
