S2E29 - How to Become Proactive in Preventing Osteoporosis

 

Show Summary: “We want to prevent Osteopenia and Osteoporosis. It’s easier to slow down and prevent bone loss than to build what’s lost.”

 

Osteoporosis is commonly known to affect only women in their forties to sixties, but did you know that it could start at an earlier age? 

 

Studies have shown that approximately 10 million Americans have Osteoporosis, and not only women but men can also suffer from it. It also shows that one in two women and one in four men will break a bone in their lifetime because of low bone density.

 

Oftentimes, we hear about this condition when people have already been diagnosed and are suffering - only then do they start taking medications, and supplements, and changing their diet and exercise. But it shouldn’t be the only way. And believe us when we say that there are lots of different ways we can prevent Osteoporosis from happening.

 

Bone Coach™ Kevin Ellis is a Forbes-featured certified Integrated Nutrition Health Coach, and he’s here to talk to us about what causes Osteoporosis, the tests we can take to check our bone density status, and what we can do to proactively prevent Osteoporosis from happening.
