  • Dear Angie,

    So sorry to hear of your problem. If you think part of the problem might be osteoporosis, you might be interested in my story:

    I am a 51 year old male with osteoporosis. I had been taking Fosamax for five or six years, and became concerned about the long term effects. I was made aware that it inhibits the osteoclasts, which break down old bone, so that new bone can be formed by the osteoblasts. Thus, old bone stays in place, and grows old and brittle. Density may increase for a while, but plateaus, then becomes weaker, even if it may be some denser.
    I found a Chinese Herbal Medicine called Xianling Gubao. It is under evaluation by our FDA, and is expected to be approved in a couple of years. Clinical trial results show it to be equal in effectiveness to Boniva and Fosamax. It is approved by the Chinese FDA, and is the most prescribed osteoporosis medicine in China.
    My dexa scan was improved last time, after being on the down swing since I stopped Fosamax. I started a new testosterone treatment at the same time, which raised my test. level, so I can't say for sure that it is the Xianling Gubao, but the clinical trials show good improvement.
    I have a source for the OTC version. Give me an e-mail if you are interested.
    Best regards,
    Thomas Edmonds

    Praying God's blessings on you!
