Acid Causes Depression and Depression Causes Bone Loss

The appended article below certainly bolsters the knowledge that "negative thoughts" and even chronic depression from our "negative thoughts" are "acidic" generating conditions, which can lead to bone loss...with the body trying in vain to buffer all of the increased metabolic and dietary acids with calcium ions from the bones.

Our medical savants just haven't even put depression and bone loss together, much less put two-and-two together connecting increased metabolic and dietary acids with increased depression, with increased bone loss and finally increased symptoms of bone thinning, osteoarthritis and osteoporosis.

If you want to have healthy strong bones and protect your bones from thinning then you must maintain the alkaline design of the body with the pH Miracle Lifestyle and Diet or a "COWS"
diet.

"Cows" is an acronym which stands for Dr. Young's four food groups as followings:

"C" = Chlorophyll - as much as you can eat and drink!
"O" = Oils - cold pressed polyunsaturated oil "W" = Water - alkaline water at a pH of 9.5 "S" = Salt - mineral salts from the sea.

When you are eating and drinking like a "COW"
you will be green and when you are green you are clean.

So keep in mind that all symptomologies of dis-ease, including depression, bone thinning, osteoarthritis, and osteoporosis is something "YOU DO" not something "YOU GET."

So I kindly and humbly suggest "STOP DOING DIS-EASE"
and start "DOING HEALTH, ENERGY and VITALITY" with an alkaline lifestyle and diet - the pH Miracle lifestyle and diet.

Depression Linked to Bone Loss in Premenopausal Women Even mild depression can be a cause for bone thinning, osteoporosis, in premenopausal women.

The findings are from a study funded by the National Institutes of Mental Health and the National Institutes of Health. They add considerable credibility to preliminary studies that show depression is a risk factor for lower than average bone mass in younger women.

"Osteoporosis is a silent disease. Too often the first symptom a clinician sees is when a patient shows up with a broken bone. Now we know that depression can serve as a red flag,"
said NIMH Deputy Director Richard Nakamura, PhD.

The study was submitted by Giovanni Ciazza, MD, PhD, MHSc, Fariheh Eskandari, MD, PhD, MHSc and some of their colleague at the NIH National Institute of Digestive Disorders and Kidney Diseases submitted the report.

Study participants were premenopausal women from
21 to 45 years old. 89 were depressed and 44 were not. Except for depression, all other risk factors were equal. The women were at a relatively high socioeconomic status and well nourished. Although the depressed women were on anti-depressant medication, the study indicated that was not a factor in increased bone loss, which was measured using an X-ray technique called DXA scanning. Severity of depression was not a factor either.

17% of the depressed women showed thinner bones in the femoral neck compared with 2% in the non-depressed group. 20% of the depressed participants had low bone mass in the lumbar spine and the lower back as opposed to 9% for non-depressed women.

Blood and urine samples, taken every hour for a full day, also showed that the depressed women had imbalances in immune-system substances including IL-6 which is known to promote bone loss. That re-enforced earlier studies with similar findings.

"Depression generally isn't on clinicians' radar screen as a major risk factor for osteoporosis, particularly for premenopausal women," says Cizza.
"And it should be."
