Healing A Hip Fracture
A nutritional and an exercise perspective to healing "bone fractures"!

A friend I live with fell and suffered a hip fracture! It is the most unexpected and unimaginable event in all the time I've known this individual. It boarders on "unbelievable"!
However another friend went to the hospital and verified that apparently surgery was required and that the surgeon attached a rod and some screws into the hip (and possibly the femur).
Had the bone been a tooth (and with the opportunity to give a "second opinion") I could have offered proof with pictures that remineralization of the teeth is a reality! Can bones remineralize?
The very first thing that must be considered is what are the things that lower the bone/mineral density or cause mineral loss (and consequently bone loss).
Let's start by considering grains from both nutritional and anti-nutritional perspectives.
"To get the best nourishment and digestibility out of grains, it is best to prepare them in such a way that inactivates such compounds as enzyme inhibitors, (12) which would otherwise hamper digestion, and phytic acid, a compound that combines with minerals and prevents their absorption.(13,14)
The traditional practices of soaking and sprouting grains accomplishes this through pre-digestion of the food. This explains why sprouted foods are less likely to produce allergic reactions in those who are sensitive.(15) And gluten-containing flours, especially wheat, are the main ingredient in most cereals and happen to be one of the most troublesome allergy-causing foods.
Dr. Braly, co-author of Dangerous Grains, believes that undiagnosed sensitivities to gluten and other grain proteins contribute to many autoimmune and neurological conditions, bone loss, chronic pain, learning problems, fatigue, intestinal complaints and more.(16) The wide use and acceptance of wheat may be why many folks who have trouble with gluten fail to consider it as an underlying contributor. Moreover, there is evidence that high-gluten diets alter the normal lining of the small intestine in healthy people,(17) which opens up the possibility that gluten, particularly in large amounts, is not ideal for many of us.":

Wrote to another friend about this:
I think there may be a nutritional component involved in the fracture. Especially in light of Weston A. Price and what he took note of regarding the traditional ways for preparing grains and that when not properly prepared the anti-nutrients that are inherent in the grains pull minerals out of the bones! This hospitalized housemate's daily diet includes grains that (from my observations over the past year) are not "properly prepared". As far as I know the housemate has been eating this way throughout 42 years since full adulthood. I wonder if a bone-density test has been given for an object assessment on 'them bones'!

Next consider that:
"A Cell Phone on Your Hip Weakens Your Bones":
"Avoid carrying your cell phone in your pocket, on your belt, or in your hand.
The hip produces 80% of the body’s red blood cells and is especially vulnerable to EMR damage. Close proximity may also affect fertility.":
Dr. Mercola says: "It’s worth remembering that the telecommunication industry is even BIGGER than drug cartels, and they have far more influence."
In other words they can more than afford to be in complete denial about the detrimental impacts of their technologies including the cell /microwave impacts.
Re: Exercise -
"Sometimes it really is a wonderful world. Especially when serendipity dictates that many things we enjoy are actually good for us! For example, butter. And salt. And bouncy houses.:
Lauren G says:
"Rebounding provides an increased G-force (gravitational load) which is why it supports bone remineralization."
