chiropractic care is a natural approach to healing. As chiropractors, we help our patients seek safe alternatives to medications and surgery when possible. New Hampshire Spine and Sport, of course, understands the importance of medication, and sometimes the necessary roles these interventions play, but we try to help our patients who so desire to cope without them.

A natural approach, nutrition, is often incorporated into our Southern New Hampshire chiropractic services' treatment plan. We never know what may arise in the literature as being beneficial. For example, flax seed may hinder the progression of osteoporosis!

New Hampshire Spine and Sport's chiropractic team enjoys new findings, and this one, we can see, may help many of our Southern New Hampshire osteoporosis patients. We've shared a cornucopia of information on bone nutrition and how important it is to feed your bones; particularly when you suffer from osteoporosis. For years, the benefits of calcium and Vitamin D3 - and even beer due to its silicon content and benefit for bone mineral density, but that's an article for another time! (1) - for osteoporosis have been touted.

flax seed muffins, recipe by Betty Crocker - Flax seed may benefit osteoporosis!A new study touts flax seed supplementation as being bone-protective. The researchers suggest that the ALA (alpha-linolenic acid) in the flax seed oil, not necessarily the lignan fraction of flax seeds, is key. They summarize it by saying, eating flax seeds while on estrogen therapy or taking flax seed oil alone is best for supplementation to enhance bone-protection. (2)

So, Southern New Hampshire osteoporosis sufferers, keep taking your calcium and Vitamin D3 for osteoporosis and coming to New Hampshire Spine and Sport for chiropractic care, but acquire a taste for flax seed! See if you can find a Southern New Hampshire restaurant using flax seeds in their recipes. Try the seeds or use flax seed oil for cooking or in a salad dressing. You - and your osteoporotic bones or pre-osteoporotic bones! - may very-well like and even benefit from it!
