There is no single specific cause or treatment for osteoporosis but more of a combination of nutrient deficiencies and conditions including; eating too much protein from meat, low levels of stomach acid, exposure to large amounts of toxic metals, high intake of coffee, tea and alcohol and excessive consumption of sugar. Osteoporosis responds well to a good nutrition programme. Working either on its own or alongside conventional treatments.
