In brief: Several things

First there are many causes of bone loss which are treatable and can lead to an increase in bone density.
After that, you have to take enough calcium and vit. D and a nutritious diet for anything to help you build bone. The natural mineral strontium is prescribed as a drug in europe is available over the counter in this country as strontium citrate or carbonate. See an experienced practitioner.

In brief: Few options

Calcium and vitamin d supplements obviously can be helpful and we certainly use them with the prescription drugs for osteoporosis.
If you have osteoporosis, there should be a prescription drug that you would feel comfortable using and they can reduce fracture risk dramatically. Please consider a prescription drug.
