Montreal Mediterranean Diet Lowers Risk Of Cognitive Decline, Osteoporosis & Fracture Risk

Thoughts of the Mediterranean bring postcard-worthy images of beautiful blue ocean waters, sandy beaches, cloudless blue skies…and food? Yes, food! Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic shares nutrition tips, and the Mediterranean diet is bantered around the nutrition world for its many health benefits as well it should in our chiropractic world, too. Fish, fruits, and veggies are good for all of us in our Montreal chiropractic family!


With the growing recognition that diet plays a beneficial role in health and prevention of disease issues like osteoporosis, bone loss, etc., guidelines are being developed. A new paper with suggestions for guidelines endorsed a mediterranean-type diet with daily consumption of 2 to 3 dairy products to deliver calcium and protein adequate enough to maintain normal calcium-phosphorous balance and bone metabolism all of which are linked to a decreased risk of fracture. (1) In other papers, the Mediterranean diet has been described as reducing hip fracture risk. Another recent paper explains that there is indication that a modified or alternative Mediterranean diet like the DASH (“Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension”) diet may also lower hip fracture risk in addition to risk of lumbar spine osteoporosis in females. (2) A study just published this past month showed that older adults who adhered the Meditterranean Diet closely had reduced odds of developing cognitive decline. (3) Better BMD, lower osteoporosis odds, decreased risk of cognitive decline and hip fracture may be motivating to try and follow the Mediterranean diet, yes? Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic finds these new studies interesting enough to share with our Montreal chiropractic patients and their families.


Good stuff! Fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, healthy fats (olive oil, nuts, seeds), yogurt, seafood/fish, a little red wine, and lots of water, un-sugared sparkling water, juices. It suggests avoiding sugars, refined grains, ultra-processed foods, etc. (4) These are all possible if not simple!
