Welcome to The Osteoporosis Clinic Ireland
The nutrients required for bone health include the invaluable ingredients that are included in The Newgrange Gold oils
This is a multi-disciplinary clinic for bone health providing nutritional therapy, ultrasound bone density scanning and specific physiotherapy designed exercises for people with osteopenia or osteoporosis. We also offer the opportunity of early diagnosis for those predisposed to this disease.
Osteoporosis is a degenerative disease of the skeletal system that is characterized by the deterioration of bone tissue, along with the decrease in bone mass making bones fragile and more likely to break. This is a silent disease affecting one in two women and one in four men over the age of fifty in Ireland, although all age groups can be affected.
There are usually no warning signs an individual has developed osteoporosis and it’s often only diagnosed when a bone is fractured/broken after even minor falls. Loss of bone-building materials can occur as the body ages, and is particularly prevalent among post-menopausal women.
Osteoporosis results from an imbalance between the ingestion and absorption of calcium into the body and its excretion. Loss of bone-building materials can occur as the body ages, and is particularly prevalent among post-menopausal women.
Susan will tailor a nutritional protocol to your specific needs for your bone health, general health & gut health.
The nutrients required for bone health include the invaluable ingredients that are included in The Newgrange Gold oils.
The oils include Omegas 3 & 6 which are essential fatty acids therefore we have to consume them as they are not produced in the body. Getting the balance of essential fats is key to bone health.
Omega 3: Omega 3 fatty acids are highly anti-inflammatory. This is necessary for bone health as we need to reduce inflammation to allow our health to optimize. Omega 3 also helps to regulate our immune system, this allows all our body systems to function well and our goal is to result in bone density improvement.
Omega 6: Along with Omega 3, Omega 6 fatty acids are essential for the brain and bone health. Remember that the quality of our foods and how they are produced is the key to improving our bones and this is why we at Osteoporosis Clinic Irelandâ€™ recommend Newgrange Gold oils.
