The OsteoBelt concept was formed by combining three observations.
First: back in 1930, early x-ray radiologists saw that people's hip bones became thicker whenever those individuals gained weight. The radiologists concluded that the bones were responding to carrying the extra weight around and needed to be stronger. Wolff's Law states that the human body responds to the forces that act upon it.
Second: research performed by Dr. Christine Snow at the University of Oregon in the 1990's was performed on people wearing weighted vests and measuring bone mineral density. These studies observed bone density increases and suggested wearing external weights could be the most effective method available to people for preventing hip fractures naturally. They were actually just observing the same thing as the radiologists decades prior.
Third: The complete medical clinical failure and 150,000 deaths per year due to strokes, and widespread breast cancer resulting from the medical usage of the "hormone replacement therapy" drugs supposedly for osteoporosis. These meds were pulled off the market in 2002.
Third (continued): again the complete medical failure and the absolute insanity of the next round of medications available "for" osteoporosis which actually kill normal healthy bone cells - I am referring to the bisphosphanate medications such as Fosamax, Actonel, Didrical, Boniva (all reg.tm's of various big Pharma drug companies). These meds are really chemotherapy being foisted on an unsuspecting, trusting population.
Among the unwanted side effects of these drugs, believe it or not, is bone fractures, especially of the thigh bone!!! This is the very thing that they lead the public to believe they are supposed to prevent.
There are quite a few other very negative side effects as well.
The major claim of those medications is to suggest that they may temporarily slow down the rate of bone loss. Not much to get excited about, I would suggest.
We felt that people needed a safe, effective alternative to the standard, ineffective, dangerous medical approach.
We knew from the research that wearing external weights would be a viable option, and the more time they were worn by people, the stronger their hip bones would become until each person's maximum would be achieved. We also knew that the increased bone strength would be maintained by continuing to wear the weights regularly.
That implied that the product needed to be attractive so people would in fact wear it all day. If the product attracted ridicule, there would be very little benefit since people would avoid wearing the product. So we decided to create an article of clothing.
Preferably it would be something convenient as well so that a person would actually choose use the product so they could derive the benefits.
So - we have a product that when worn, increases your overall body weight, making the bones of the hips receive stronger compression forces whenever the wearer is on their feet. Therefore, according to Wolff's Law, the wearer's bones will strengthen in response to those extra forces.
Bone strengthening is true reversal of osteoporosis and osteopenia.
And that's why the OsteoBelt, which is a weighted designer dress belt, helps to prevent hip fractures from osteoporosis.
You can simply choose to wear one and forget about osteoporosis. Or choose not to and take your chances.
