This must be totally boring to any and all who have read countless posts on being newly diagnosed with osteoporosis, but that's what was laid on me at my first bone scan. My sister told me abut Ezorb, so i did order it, very expensive, in the powder form. I see most people are taking the pills. I just got it yesterday, and would love to hear from anyone who has been taking it faithfully with success. Can you also take a calcium pill supplement along with it? Can you take it without food?
Really appreciate all the comments on being a "newcomer" to this diagnosis. I checked on the book the Myth of Osteoporosis", it's a little expensive, not that I won't invest in it, but I just happened to pick up the book "Strong Bones, Strong Body", so I'll give that a look first. For now, I guess I'm just going to take the Ezorb faithfully as well as a calcium supplement and eat as much calcium content foods as I can. I want to get the bone scan report from the doc, as I see a lot of people know the actual results, and I don't know to what degree I have it, just that he said it was bad.... and wants to start me on a pill, which I don't want to do. Anyway, thank you for responding, and I'll be in touch.

Singingirl - I ordered eZorb powder today (7/22) so I'm right where you are. Please let me know how it goes for you. I e-mailed the company 2-3 questions like you had, and based on prior inquiries they respond quickly and in detail. From what I've read, no food is necessary and I understand that you can keep taking a calcium pill if you want. Check out this link for some good info:

Cheers!
Hi singingirl...i started taking strontium because i was afraid of the side effect from the current osteo drugs and just decided I didn't want it into my body. I've been taking it for almost 2 years and did show improvements on the DEXA i had last June. I've had no side effects and feel its a safe alternative to what's offered now. I also take calcium, magnesium, D3. fish oil and a multivitamin for the over 50 crowd. I walk most days and do weight training a few times a week.

You can get the Myth of Osteoporosis at the library. If they don't ahve a copy ask them to order it from another library in their system. All the books on osteo are good, but this one offers a different POV.

There is a new thread started by Myth about EZorb, that you might want to read, she offers some good insight into her experience with Ezorb. take care...phyllis
Hi - First of all, sorry to anyone if I did not post things right. I think I was posting on quick reply or quote reply instead of going to the bottom of this page and clicking on post reply - i think i did that wrong. anyway, i am feeling encouraged with osteopenia1's message about having taken Ezorb for two years now. Since the mfr. suggests a loading dose of up to six tsp. of powder a day, I am taking two tsp. twice a day as well as a calcium carbonate supplement at another time of the day and i pop a viactiv once a day - cause they're good! I'm definitely going to check the library for the book phyllis, and thanks for your suggestions. I still have to call the MD and have him send me the bone scan results so i can actually see the numbers, i don't think they were good in the hip. Who knew??? Not me, I've just been going about my business wearing high heels, dancing, moving, acting like nothing is wrong or could possibly be potentially a bad move for me. p.s. what is D3, same as a D supplement? and magnesium, how much do you take of each? Thanks.
Hi singingirl...D3 is the form of vitamin D that is most like what we get from sunlight. The magnesium helps with calcium absorbortion and is also good for your muscles and helps with sleep. It does other things as well, but can't remember all of them. Have you added up all the calcium you are getting from the ezorb, calcium carbonate and viactin? It sounds like you getting quite a bit. The recommendation is 1200-1500 mg. a day including what you get from food, unless your dr. has told you to take more. As good as calcium is for us, too much of a good thing can be too much. take care..phyllis
