Oxford Chiropractic Nutrition: Gut, Bone, Chondroitin Sulfate

Osteoporosis and the gut. Two seemingly unconnected conditions may actually be connected beyond the fact that they both are internal body issues. Osteoporosis’ effect is often seen in bone health deterioration. Gut issues’ effect is often seen in digestive problems. Researchers today are finding ties between gut health and osteoporosis’ effect on bone health. Satterwhite Chiropractic helps Oxford chiropractic patients suffering with both issues!

OSTEOPOROSIS AND THE GUT HEALTH CONNECTION

Oxford osteoporosis is quite prevalent. Gut issues are, too. Gut health modification with probiotic use has become more commonplace recently to address chronic diseases like autoimmune and cardiovascular diseases as well as cancer and diabetes. Today, researchers are looking at the health of the gut microbiome to address bone mass regulation which affects osteoporosis and osteopenia. (1) Senile osteoporosis is associated with a decreased bone mineral density (BMD) and modified microbiota. How these are associated in postmenopausal osteoporosis is yet unknown. A study that attempted to figure this out did find that there was decreased bacterial richness and diversity in postmenopausal osteoporosis with significant contrast in levels of phyla and genera in gut microbiota. (2) Satterwhite Chiropractic sees these new discoveries involving gut health and osteoporosis as being useful in planning the Oxford osteoporosis treatment plan.

DIETARY HELP FOR OSTEOPOROSIS

Oxford chiropractic care of osteoporosis is multifaceted incorporating spinal manipulation by way of the gentle Cox® Technic protocols, exercise, and nutrition. Looking at osteoporosis as a condition likely involving the microbiota of the gut, researchers are now trying dietary approaches to address osteoporosis. Nutritionally, a chondroitin sulfate/calcium complex improved the BMD and microstructure of femur bone in rats with osteoporosis. It also changed the serum bone turnover marker levels. This dietary intervention of chondroitin and calcium has the potential to ease osteoporosis and its symptomatology. (3) Satterwhite Chiropractic is very familiar with the effects of chondroitin sulfate for disc health and is excited that it may also benefit osteoporosis.
