Osteopenia & Osteoporosis, Exactly What Is The Difference?

Osteopenia and osteoporosis are two very similar conditions, but one is more severe than the other. Both conditions are decreased bone density, but osteopenia is to a lesser degree than osteoporosis. Osteopenia is still a problem though because it can increase a person’s chances of breaking a bone due to bone fragility. What are the symptoms? Osteopenia usually doesn't cause symptoms unless a bone is broken. However, some patients who present with osteopenia complain of dull back pain. Symptoms associated with osteoporosis include the following: Back pain, caused by a fractured or collapsed vertebra Loss of height over time A stooped posture A bone fracture that occurs much more easily than expected What are the causes and who is at risk? Women (primarily small-boned Caucasian and Asian) are most at risk for both conditions, primarily those who are age 65 or older as well as women who are postmenopausal. However, men can also be affected. Anyone who meets an

The Role of Methylation Adaptogens

Dr. Alex Jimenez Discusses the Role of Methylation Adaptogens When we support DNA methylation in the human body with high-dose supplements, such as folate and vitamin B12 , essential nutrients in the production of methyl donor compounds, we are doing a lot to prevent methylation deficiencies. However, healthcare professionals suggest that we are not promoting methylation support by utilizing this approach. Research studies evaluating the epigenome have demonstrated that both the increase and decrease of DNA methylation can cause health issues. DNA methylation imbalances can occur in different regions of the same gene. One area of the genome might be hypermethylated and turned off while another area of the genome might be hypomethylated and turned on. Methylation imbalances in cancer cause tumor suppressor genes to become hypermethylated and turn off, allowing the tumor to continue to grow. Moreover, cancer-promoting oncogenes may also become hypomethylated and turn

Spinal Abnormalities That Chiropractic Can Correct El Paso, Texas

Sometimes there are abnormalities of the spine that can cause misalignment of the natural curvatures or exaggerate the natural curvature. These unnatural curvatures of the spine are characterized by three health conditions called lordosis, kyphosis, and scoliosis. The spine is comprised of vertebrae, small bones that are stacked on top of each other with impact cushioning discs between each one. These bones act as joints, allowing the spine to bend and twist in a variety of ways. However, it is not intended to be naturally bent, twisted, or curved. The natural state of a healthy spine is somewhat straight with slight curves running front to back so that a side view would reveal them. They gently curve, sloping slightly inward at the small of the back, and again slightly at the neck. The pull of gravity, combined with body movement, can put a great deal of stress on the spine and these slight curves help absorb some of the impact. Viewing the spine from the back, you should s
