    I’d like to know the science behind the infammatory foods? Do you take injections for the osteoarthritis/porosis and do you take Calcium and vit D3 to replace dairy?
    Thank you so much

      Hi Nicki –

      I do not use injections or other medications for my spinal osteoarthritis at this time beyond ibuprofen, which I take minimally to reduce inflammation.

      I take a multi-vitamin that has calcium in it, vitamin D, and fish oil. Instead of taking more vitamins, which I do not think are the “cure” for everything that ails you, I suggest eating more vegetables, legumes, and fresh foods.

      Calcium also comes in many forms beyond milk. Salmon, white beans, almonds – and many other sources. Do some research and you’ll be surprised.
