      I’m sorry that I did not see your comment until yesterday. I am not a medical practitioner, and so I am not qualified to give you medical advice.

Perhaps you can see a naturopathic or holistic doctor in your area who can recommend natural remedies to boost your bone density. In my area, I see Dr. Steven D’Antonio.
