Georgetown Menopausal Womens Bones Benefit from Probiotics

October 10, 2017

Chiropractors understand bones. No bones about it! Young bones and older bones invite the gentle care delivered by caring chiropractors like your Georgetown chiropractor at Dr. Butwell. The more mature bones - particularly menopausal bones - that ache due to osteoporosis really enjoy the soothing care of your Georgetown chiropractor. Prevention strategies like calcium and vitamin D supplementation and probiotic consumption are encouraged at Dr. Butwell while pain-relieving Georgetown chiropractic treatment is delivered.


Osteoporosis in menopausal women isn’t a rapid onset condition. Osteoporosis is the finale of years of bone loss starting when women (and men) are young. It is like a savings account. The deposits made into the bone health account as young people pay off when those young people mature. If the bones are built up well in youth, they will persist in aging better. If the bones didn’t get that built up, they will be painful - more for some than others – as they mature. Supplementation and dietary intake of calcium, vitamin D and magnesium are often suggested for young women to help fend off menopausal osteoporosis. For more mature Georgetown women, menopausal and post-menopausal, a mixture of those same nutrients are as well…plus a twist! Dr. Butwell enjoys sharing these helpful new, research-documented treatment twists to assist our Georgetown osteoporosis patients.


Dr. Butwell assists female Georgetown osteoporosis patients manage their condition from pain-relieving treatment with Cox Technic, a really gentle spinal manipulation your bones will really appreciate, to common nutritional supplements and new ones like probiotics. To potentially prevent and treat osteoporosis without the increased risk of cancer affiliated with hormone replacement therapy, a mix of probiotic and bioavailable isoflavone treatment was tested in the form of red clover extract. It succeeded! A year of taking it twice a day displayed a lessening for bone mineral density (BMD) loss, improvement of bone turnover, a better estrogen metabolite profile, and more equol production in post-menopausal women with osteopenia. Adding calcium, magnesium, and calcitriol demonstrated to be even more effective.  (1) Another article states that just adding a multispecies probiotic supplement for 6 months proved to be positive for postmenopausal women’s bone health as it decelerated the rate of bone turnover.
