Maintaining strong and healthy bones is a complex process.
And there are many factors at play: genetics, nutritional deficiencies, ability to absorb nutrients, medications (glucocorticoids like cortisone, prednisone, antacids), and positive or negative stresses on the body and mind.
There is a time and place for medications, so please do not take this program to mean you should not be taking that route. This program is to give you alternative options, if not complimentary options.
Are you fearful of the side effects of the medications out there?
Have you had a hysterectomy and wondering how that will affect your bone health?
Confused about what exercises to do to help support your bones?
Wondering if foods really can help your bones get stronger?
I can't tell you how many patients I have worked with that don't have any other knowledge of how to build their bones. They are often given a first line of medications. And you know what? They are so fearful of the side effects, they remain paralyzed about what to do.
I'm telling you there are options.
I had a patient so fearful of doing the wrong movements that they just didn't do anything and became so socially isolated that they became depressed---which is a risk factor for osteoporosis. A vicious cycle.
I'm telling you, there are alternatives.
