I started the podcast because I have a message I want to share with women. In this introductory episode, I tell my story of going from fearful and embarrassed about my osteoporosis diagnosis to fiercely confident about my future.
My curious mind propelled me to look at what I can do myself before I tried pharmaceuticals. My search did not veer into alternative medicine but rather exercise and nutrition as well as sleep and mindset. I talk about whether gut health may have contributed to my condition. I discuss my approach to eating and shopping.
My alignment also mattered to whether I was actually loading my hips when I walked. I studied alignment and how to get the path of weight to load my bones.
Sleep is so important and I mention Dr. Matthew Walker’s book “Why We Sleep” and how important sleep is to our bone building.
Finally, I discuss my area of expertise: weight bearing exercise for bone promotion. How to weightlifting for osteoporosis is my passion and I teach it simply and effectively with joy! I want a long healthspan, not just lifespan and I want it for you too!
