hello, i'm doctor maya. i'm an interventionalneuroradiologist at cedars-sinai medical center. i wanted to talk to you alittle bit about kyphoplasty. this is a minimally invasive spinal procedurethat we do for patients with fractures. most commonly,patients with osteoporosis have these fractures with or without a fall. the kyphoplasty procedureis usually done as an outpatient. it takes about one hourand then they have to rest for six to eight hours in the hospitaland then they are discharged home. anesthesia is localand iv sedation it's not on the general anesthesia. i talked to you earlier about kyphoplastyand i wanted to show you

a recent example of a patient that came tome. she's a seventy-year-old woman who fell and had this t-12 fracture. on this screen,you see a cat scan and from the side where the t-12virtual body of the spine is crushed, top to bottom is reduced in heightand there is fragmentation of the spine. this patient was brought back the next dayand we put in needles from the back through small skin incisions. we put balloonsthrough it, inflated the balloon, and expanded the spine, reduce the fracture,and after this we would put cement in it. you see the cement inside the virtual body.this patient did really well and went home the same day and she had good recovery. thisis one of those procedures

that is really very satisfactory from my perspectivebecause my patients, when they come to me, they're quite depressedbecause they're in pain, they're in bed for many days to weeks, andthey lose their appetite. they can't eat. they can't function. and soon after theprocedure, sometimes immediately or sometimes a few days later,they completely change with improved mood. they're able to get out ofbed. they smile. so, it's a very gratifying procedure and thatis something i like to see.

osteoporosis pharmacological treatment

did you know that you can treat osteoporosisnaturally? in our country, we have the highest percentageof calcium intake through milk and supplements, but one of the highest percentages in osteoporosis. and this is easily preventable and it's...it's something that we can heal from, and it's easy, and i wanna share with you howyou can do that. so first, it's important to understand thatyou don't wanna take calcium alone because calcium needs other vitamins and mineralsto even be absorbed and also taken to the other parts of your body that you need...where you need it. so it's important to take a whole supplementand it needs to be a plant-based supplement.

so if you're getting your calcium from a conventionalsource - over the counter or wherever you're getting it, if it isn't a plant-based supplement,what's happening is your body will store and oftentimes when you're tested, it shows thatyour calcium levels are where they should be, but you have weak bones or you have osteoporosiseven. so what's happening is as your calcium levelsare there, it does not mean that you're absorbing and using the calcium. it's being stored inyour brain, in your joints, in your pancreas and your kidneys... and so it's causing allsorts of havoc and inflammation and problems in your body, and it's actually hurting youto take those supplements. so the first thing that you wanna do is makesure that you're looking for a plant-based

supplement. and you want that so that youhave the whole... the wholeness of the plant. so it has all of the elements that it needsto actually absorb those... that calcium that your body needs. some good sources through food that you canget calcium is leafy greens. so i have a pile of beautiful greens right here. kale is avery good source of calcium, but really if you... you eat a variety, you're going toget the calcium that you need. and because we've talked about so much thatwe need protein and calcium, these are some of the things that are the top subjects ofhealth. so we think that we need large amounts, but really we need just small amounts thatwe need it in a... a way that our body can

actually use it. so leafy greens and... and then also the fruitsthat you can get. really any fruit is going to have some amount of calcium in there. butsome that you can look for that have high amounts of calcium is oranges, grapefruit,dates, pomegranate... those are some good ones! blackberries... those are high... havehigh amounts of calcium. but really, if you're eating a variety, you'regoing to get all of the vitamins and minerals that your body needs. if you or anybody you know is dealing withosteoporosis, just know that there are natural remedies that are effective in helping youheal.

osteoporosis patient handout

osteoporosis patient handout

hey everybody it's doctor jo. i've beengetting a lot of questions about knee pain. knee pain is actually probably the secondmost common thing that we see next to back pain. and that simply because you can getthat oa in there. and when i say oa i don't mean old age. it actually stands for osteoarthritis.and you can even start getting that as early as 25 to 30 years old. so when you start feelingsome aching in your bones and your joints and your knee, these are some stretches you cando to kind of work it out a little bit. and remember, once you stretch you need to strengthen.already let's get started with some of the stretches. the first thing i'm gonna haveyou do is i'm gonna have you straighten out your leg. we're gonna work out the jointa little bit, get some movement in there and

get it loosened up. so we're gonna bring outour trusty belt, or dog leash if you have one, i usually take off my shoes for thisone casue it's gonna help you slide a little bit. if you need a towel underneath you cando that, doing it in bed seems to help a lot because it's a little more slick on yoursheets so you'll get a little more movement. i'm gonna have you put the belt around yourfoot, anywhere that's comfortable, and your gonna bring your knee up. if you need a littlehelp, a little over pressure stretch, that's what the belt is for. so you're just gonnakind of slide it up, get a good bend in there. and just a little pause with this one, maybejust a 5 to 10 second pause, and then you're gonna come back down. but the movement inthe join is what's gonna loosen it up, so

you wanna do this continuously. a little pauseat the top, maybe you can go a little further the next time, and then come back down. soyou wanna do that about 8 or 10 times, really getting that joint moving. and then stretchingit as far as you can, and coming back down. now we're going to move the kneecap arounda little bit. this is your patella, they might call it a patella, you might say "say what?",but it's basically your knee cap on top. the key to moving around your kneecap is thatyour leg has to be relaxed. if you're squeezing your muscles tight, that's pushing it downinto your joint and it's not gonna move, so you really want your leg to be relaxed,you can kind of hit it a little bit that helps those muscles relax a little bit. and allyou're gonna do is your just gonna start

moving it back and forth, side to side. that'sthe first one. the first couple times it might be hard, it's not knowing what's goingon, so your muscles are tightening up a little bit, you can push pretty hard, getting thatmovement in there. go side to side a little bit, and you can go front to back a littlebit. you're just moving it back and forth. if you have some osteoarthritis in there youmight feel a little bit of crunching going on. that's ok. that's what we call crepitus,and that's just that arthritis in there. you keep moving it as much as you can. thisimportance of this is the patella is connected to your quadricep tendon up here, and yourpatellar tendon down there. those, if they're tight, push that kneecap down and you'renot gonna get as much bend in your knee. so

the key here is to get that kneecap moving,and then you'll have more room to bend that knee if it's feeling really tight. backand forth. up and down. ok. so now we're just gonna do some stretches of the muscles.you've got the joint loosened up a little bit, no we're gonna stretch out those musclesa little bit. i'm gonna have you bring back out your belt, and we're gonna this timeput it around the balls of our feet. so not your toes, but just below your toes, righton the ball there, and you're gonna keep your leg straight. this is gonna stretch outour calf muscle underneath. the calf actually, those tendons kind of cross the knee so youreally wanna get those stretched out. you're gonna relax your foot, and you're gonnapull it towards you as much as you can. now

if your knee starts bending a little bit,then you're pulling too hard and your changing the muscle your stretching. so you want thatleg to be straight. and you're gonna pull. and of course this is a stretch so you wannahold if for 30 seconds and you wanna do it three times each. ok. just relax. and thenpull it again. the next one is a hamstring stretch. the hamstring has many differentways that you can stretch it, so i'm just gonna show you one, but we do have a videoof hamstring stretches, a bunch of different ways, so if this one doesn't feel comfortablefor you, or it hurts too much, go check out hamstring stretching and you can pick outthe one that's best suited for you. because it doesn't really matter, they're allstretching the hamstring, so if you like one

better than the other, you can do that one.but what you're gonna do, is your gonna bring the opposite leg up. and you're gonnakeep your leg straight. the key here is you don't want to curl your back. if you'reculing your back trying to touch your toes, you're not really stretching your hamstringsbecause your hamstrings are connected to your pelvis. so you really need to move your pelviswhen you're going. you wanna keep your back straight, and just lean forward. i'm gettingmore of a stretch in my hamstrings here, than when i'm bending down to here. so rememberyou wanna keep your back straight, and you wanna bend at your pelvis. and this stretch,30 seconds, three times each. ok. now the last one i'm gonna have you do is i'mgonna have you turn over onto your stomach

and we're gonna stretch out your quad muscle.alright? so where we go. i'm gonna have you take your belt again and make a littleloop in it. your gonna put the loop around your foot right here, and you're gonna tightenit up. and so what you gonna do is your gonna bring it around your shoulder, this is thekey, and your gonna pull on that strap until you feel a good stretch on the front thighpart of your leg where that quadriceps muscle is. now most people aren't gonna be ableto touch their bottom like this, so you might be right here. that's fine. you want thatstretch to be a good tension stretch, you want pressure, but remember you don't wantit to be painful. so you're gonna pull and your gonna hold it for 30 seconds, three timeeach. alright, so there you have it those

are your knee stretches. and that's to helpout with that oa, not old age, but osteoarthritis. so if you like those stretches, please clickthe "like" button and leave us a comment. and if you'd like to see some more exercisevideos or some educational videos, please check me out at askdoctorjo.com and remember:be safe. have fun. and i hope you feel better soon!

hey guys. dr. axe here, founder of draxe.com.today, i'm going to share with you eight warning signs that you have magnesium deficiency,and there are many symptoms of magnesium deficiency that a lot of people have. so then, think about this, there is a goodchance that you have a health condition and if you just got more magnesium in your diet,it could be gone for good. there are people suffering with eight common conditions thatif you just get more magnesium in your diet it is going to transform your health forever. according to recent research, 80% of americansare magnesium deficient. so, you've got to get more magnesium in your diet or at least80% of people do.

the first warning sign that you are magnesiumdeficient is that if you have any form of a headache, whether it's a tension headacheor a migraine headache that's a big warning sign and one of the reasons is that magnesiumreally helps in relaxing muscles, it helps with overall cellular function, and so again,magnesium is critical. if you have a headache, had any type of headacheat all, consider getting more magnesium foods in your diet or taking a magnesium supplement,and at the end, i'll share more with you about magnesium foods and supplements. the number two sign that you have a magnesiumdeficiency is if you get muscle cramps. now, a lot of the times people think that that'spotassium and it can be, but it's also magnesium.

and so again, if you are an athlete or let'ssay you're laying [sic] in bed at night and you ever get muscle cramps or if you strugglewith muscle cramps on a regular basis, you are magnesium deficient. you really want to work on increasing bothpotassium intake and magnesium intake if you get muscle cramps. the third warning sign that you're magnesiumdeficient is if you have osteoporosis or if you have osteopenia or any type of weak musclesor weak bones, or you get injured easily. you know magnesium is a major building blockof your muscles. and listen to this, a lot of people will goand take a calcium supplement without even

taking a magnesium supplement for your bodyto even use calcium. you have to have magnesium. so again, magnesium, it's critical for buildingstrong bones. so, it's essential that children are gettingmagnesium rich foods, adults', especially aging women, are getting magnesium foods andsupplements on a regular basis. the fourth warning sign that you are magnesiumdeficient is if you have diabetes or imbalanced blood sugar. if you tend to eat somethingand then afterwards you get really tired. in fact if you're one of those people thathits the sort of two o'clock coma at work after lunch, that's a big warning sign thatyou are magnesium deficient. so, again if you have diabetes or you havelow energy levels, or even have adrenal fatigue,

those are warning signs that you're not gettingenough magnesium in your diet. the reason is that magnesium is a criticalmineral for improving glucose absorption and really balancing out your blood sugar. youreally have to have magnesium for cellular function. the fifth warning sign, you may have highblood pressure. so blood pressure issues, if you have high blood pressure on a bloodpressure medication, magnesium has been shown to be one of the best natural remedies tonaturally lower or balance out your blood pressure. the sixth warning sign that you have a magnesiumdeficiency is if you struggle with insomnia

or not being able to sleep at night, and thatincludes both not being able to fall asleep or stay asleep during the night or even wakingup early on a consistent basis. you need magnesium for that. if you do struggle with that, the best timeto take magnesium is with dinner or right before bed in the evening. the seventh warning sign you are magnesiumdeficient is if you struggle with anxiety and depression. in fact, magnesium has beenshown to help calm the body, the muscles, and help improve mood. it is a vital mineralfor overall mood. in fact one of the things i've recommendedto patients over time with anxiety is taking

magnesium on a daily basis and they've seengreat results. and last but not least, would be muscle pain. that's a sign that you'remagnesium deficient as well. things like fibromyalgia. so muscle pain,fibromyalgia, those are warning signs. the reason is magnesium, even within minutes oftaking it, it can start to relax your muscles. also why it helps with migraine headaches.that's number eight. then one other bonus warning sign you're magnesiumdeficient is if you struggle with constipation. constipation and irregular bowel movementsis a major warning sign. so if you do struggle with constipation, magnesium, specificallymagnesium citrate has great benefits in helping improve bowel movements.

now, let me tell you how to get more magnesiumin your diet. number one is through foods, specifically fruits, vegetables and sproutednuts and seeds are a great source. avocados are my number one recommendation for gettingmore magnesium in your diet. bananas are great as well, also even thingslike pumpkin seeds. if you want to learn more about the magnesium foods just go to my websitedraxe.com or google search online dr. axe magnesium foods and you can find my list ofmy top magnesium foods there as well. and last but not least, take a quality magnesiumsupplement. now, the problem is most magnesium and mineral supplements out there today inmulti-vitamins are made from rocks. literally, rocks and mineral salts. you don't want totake those.

take a magnesium chelate supplement that alsohas other co-factors in it like boron. and so again, i know that i personally take theaxe naturals brand of magnesium. it's a great brand you can check out there as well, online. and so again, guys, if you're going to behealthy or if you have any one of those warning signs, you know that you are magnesium deficient,make sure that you get more magnesium in your diet and consider a magnesium supplement. hey, if you've enjoyed this information makesure you've subscribe to the youtube page. i'm always giving more information on thetop vitamins and minerals to help your body stay healthy.

welcome to the vitalife show i'm doctorjanine bowring and today's topic is all about the osteoporosis drugsand these are commonly prescribed drugs across north america europe and unfortunately they have somenegative consequences for your health which a lot of people don't realize andcertainly your doctor probably hasn't told you so what could these commonly prescribeddrugs do as they do build a stronger bone density so

of course they're prescribed forosteoporosis or if you've had you know bone density test and yourdoctor said that your bone density is decreasing and of course happens aswe age well the drug then are implemented andunfortunately the bad news is that it's the qualityand the type of bone that these drugs actually form so yes you are well have astronger and a better bone density so when you're furthertest and the doctor says great your bone density is increasing everything looksgood unfortunately it's the quality of boneis the issue

what happens is that because these drugsin the way that the calcium is metabolized into the bone unfortunately it forms a more brittlebone that means that you're more likely tohave a fracture, so hip fractures are definitely there's a higher incidence of themwith the prescription at these drugs and this is well documented i'm not the only one saying it so do yourresearch and you'll find the studies so

unfortunately this is what's happeningout there and you always have to educate yourself and try to do things more naturally and that's all what we'reall about here at the vitalife show is giving a natural tips how to gethealthier take care of your bones from the insideout taking right types of things and watching your diet as well so in terms of the diet you want to takehigh calcium foods so fruits and vegetablesare great because they help to keep your blood more alkaline

and you need alkaline environment so thatcalcium goes into the bones and is a protective mechanism if youhave too many acidic things on a diet unfortunately what happens is that thecalcium comes out have the bones to buffer the bloodso keep things alkaline keep things healthy if you know like your dairy productsunfortunately it's not a great way to get calcium that goesinto the bones because dairy products for the most part areacid forming so as much in as high as they are incalcium unfortunately you're not

actually absorbing that calcium wellinto the bones so that the big huge misconception out there that you're getting you know greatabsorbable osteoporosis preventing calcium from dairy products its just not true so again there arewonderful supplements and here at vitatree really we have created a whole foodcalcium supplement made from fossilized coral calcium andit's in a powder form there's no hard tablet its easy on your stomach dissolves and is absorbed very quicklyso you just mix one scoop

in a little bit of water juice justbefore bed time because calcium does going to your bones when you're sleeping and always separated from magnesium nowyou do need magnesium in your daily diet and perhaps youmay be deficient which most people are so you can supplement with a high quality magnesium that's whyhere at vitatree we supplement our vitatree magnesium in the morning and our whole food calcium at night theycompete for absorption so they should never really be in the same supplementso that's why we've done it so

differently here at vitatree and thats why we have great results and you'll absolutely love our magnesium and our whole food calcium so again i thank you for joining me todayalways do your research no matter what you're taking whether it supplementsnatural things that you're taking as well of course the drugs readall those side effects and know that there are negative consequences oftaking them and unfortunately you know not always will your doctor orpharmacist tell you these things so
