Q. Dear Terry, “I am looking for information on how to promote bone density. I have been diagnosed with severe osteoporosis and do not want to go on drugs. I have changed my diet over this last year and have begun exercising with the help of a coach to increase muscle mass. There is so much info out there that I 'm not sure who to believe! Thank you for your time.” — Gregori, Fort Collins, CO

There are three herbs that would be absolutely in my medicine chest for daily use.
The first is curcumin, a very special Curcumin BCM-95, with 30 published studies that indicate its powerful anti-inflammatory effects and support of our antioxidant defense system. The published studies indicate that it is effective for the treatment of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, type 2 diabetes, psoriasis, depression and Alzheimer’s disease. A recent study just released this week indicates that participants in the study using Curcumin BCM-95 stopped the progression of Alzheimer’s disease and those on a placebo continued to worsen.
My second herbal choice is grape see extract, which I think is almost a twin to curcumin, again it is a very powerful anti-inflammatory and a more powerful antioxidant than curcumin. Studies have shown that a variety of research institutions in the U.S. have found it effective for reducing the risk for treating colon, breast, and prostate cancer. It has a greater effect on the heart and cardiovascular system than does curcumin. It reduces the risk of vascular deterioration preventing the risk of atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), reducing varicose veins, edema of the ankles and calves, and reduces the risk of PAD (peripheral artery disease) and the associated blood clots.
My third choice is boswellia, also a powerful anti-inflammatory although not a very effective antioxidant but it does modulate the 5-LOX enzyme, which today no drug has the capabilities. By modulating this pathway, it reduces the risk and can treat asthma, COPD, bronchitis, allergies, sinusitis, and also have an effect on the gastrointestinal tract for the treatment of Crohn’s disease and colitis. Well-chosen high quality extracts of these three herbs may be more powerful than the available medications prescribed for these indications.
TODAY'S WORD From Joel and Victoria
When you wake up in the morning, do you expect the goodness of God in your life? Do you set the tone of the day for success, favor and blessing with your words? Scripture tells us that life and death are in the power of the tongue. That’s why it’s so important to declare praises to God all throughout the day. Things may be bad all around you, people may be negative, complaining and discouraged, but don’t let that spirit rub off on you. The worse it gets, the brighter you’re going to shine. The good news is that no matter how you feel, no matter what’s going on around you, you can choose your words. There’s nothing that can stop you from constantly speaking His Word!
Today I encourage you to be determined to set the tone for your day, week, month and year by praising God and speaking words of faith over your future. Remember, when you put God first, He promises to honor you. He will pour out His favor on you and lead you into life, health, strength and blessing all the days of your life!
