Some Thoughts About Falling

January 21, 2017

Most of the statistics on death from Osteoporosis deal with women over 81 having falls and breaking or fracturing bones. This leads to long bedcare and often total disruption of health, then death.

I remember reading that half of these women did not test with fragile bones. It depends on the way you fall and the surface you fall on whether or not your bones will break. It is random and the drugs won’t help you!! I can’t remember the source but if you search for it you should find it.

So after a couple of interesting phone calls from people about falls, I actually fell myself twice this month, the second time today.

The first time was at the beach on slippery rocks with a leashed dog and my granddaughter. Since we were chatting I wasn’t paying as much attention as usual – I wasn’t conscious and awake to my position in space. I fell right down on the rock and caught myself with my hand and knee. I got right up and I had grazed the palm of my hand but I was fine – nothing broken!

Today I fell at the Farmer’s Market, tripping over a car block painted black with the sun in my eyes. I went straight down, this time with the back of my hand and my knee getting scraped up but nothing broken.

I’m 72 and feel very vigorous and strong so I’m not in the target yet and I don’t intend to sit down long enough to become frail and inflexible.
The only history I have with broken bones is an accident falling off a chair when I was hanging something just out of reach when I was 45. I heard my wrist snap as it hit the wall. Then a few years ago I fell in a drainage ditch in the pitch dark and broke 2 metatarsals (toes). That was a very hard fall but with little negative impact. The toes healed fast and I was dancing again in a couple of months.

So the point I’m making is that most danger from osteoporosis comes from falls, which really can’t be anticipated and which the drugs don’t help even if you believe in them. Walking with a weight vest is good to build bone and yoga is good to build flexibility so that in a fall your body reacts quickly to protect you. Turning off the tv and getting off the couch is also essential to avoid falls because it reduces complacency and the trance state that the mind-controlled tv encourages.

As for getting upset about your numbers on the Dexa test – I recently had a spate of younger women get bad numbers on their tests and I had an intuitive flash that the drug companies who make the machines were rigging the tests. I have no proof and I wouldn’t have said anything years ago when I started this site but so much dire information of lying, cheating and greed from the drug companies has come out in the years since then that I really think it’s quite likely. The patent ran out on the bisphosphonates so they have thought up some new drugs that are way worse so be careful what you put in your body.

The drug companies are not on our side! Their own leaked memos have admitted they want all women to be on at least 10 drugs for life so that their profits continue to rise. This is all getting out now and we are headed for more revelations of fraud soon so it’s time to wake up and do the research. That’s part of the reason that I don’t give links. I don’t want you believing me any more than them. Check for yourself – askapatient.com is a good source for actual patient feedback but a search engine will give you more drug news. Not google, they are not honest. I use duckduckgo.com.

Blessings
