I have Osteoporosis probably because I am lactose intolerant and have been since adulthood. This disease is extremely painful and I found out just how painful on Memorial day in the Emergency room. My first and hopefully last time of this flair-up. The x-rays showed only "thin bones" as the doctor said but I have had the bone density test done which was how I found out about my thinning bones called Osteoporosis. I do take a Boniva pill once a month.
Though one of my adult children I learned about Soy Milk. I buy the Silk Soy Milk in the red and white container. I tried it and found out I could drink it without any side affects. I now drink two glasses every day. I'm sorry I did not know about this many years ago. I also stop eating red meat but still eat poultry as it takes time to withdraw from a lifelong habit. I hope to be off poultry by September. I do light exercising like walking. I eat dark leafy veggies such as broccoli, collards, kale and mustard greens. I love spinach and eat carrots for vitamin A. I have a Vita-Prep Mixer and make fruit and veggie smoothies. To change ones eating habits is not easy but it can be done. I do not smoke or drink. I am learning more and more each day how to stay healthy. I am 71 years young. We all have different ways of dealing with health problems. Whatever works for a person is what will get them through the problem and on to a solution. I wish everybody the best as they travel the road to better health.
