Stress management is instrumental in bone health, as cortisol, the main stress hormone, can be damaging to bones if it remains at high levels for a prolonged time. Daily attention to reducing stress, be it exercise, meditation, yoga, or just engaging in pleasurable hobbies, is encouraged.

Deciding whether to take bisphosphonates is a decision that should be made after discussion with an individual’s physician. Patients who have osteoporosis or who are at risk of bone loss need to take some action to preserve and protect their bones. For some individuals, that action may not require the use of bisphosphonates, but it should at least involve the natural alternatives mentioned, as well as recommendations from one’s physician regarding other osteoporosis drugs.
