7. Epsom Salt
Epsom salt is a classic natural remedy for muscle and joint pain caused by osteoporosis. Run a bath and add two cups of Epsom salt. Soak in the bath for at least half an hour and you’ll find that the magnesium and sulphates found within the salt can actually be absorbed right through your skin, reducing inflammation surrounding your joints and providing much-needed relief to your osteoporosis pain.
You can also benefit from the effect of Epsom salt by applying the salts to a warm and wet hot compress and holding it to your skin.
8. Eat More Vitamin K
Vitamin K is an essential nutrient that helps reduce blood clotting and increase protein production in the body. The more proteins you have, the stronger your bones will remain. Studies have shown that vitamin K can slow down bone turnover, which is perfect for those suffering with osteoporosis.
There is conflicting evidence surrounding the effect that vitamin K has on bone minerals, but studies have in fact shown that vitamin K helps improve calcium absorption, making it an essential nutrient in your diet. You can also buy vitamin K supplements from health stores.
