Bone Quality - Trabecular Bone Score

Bone Quality: Since I started working in the field of bone health there is a common thread that drives a bigger question.  Is the DXA test (which measures bone density) the only way to determine the overall health of your bones?

Holy Basil - Twice the Spice

Berries and Bones

"Just one tablespoon […]

Bone-Loving Brussels Sprouts Slaw

Join Irma and Skelly (the skeleton that lives in us all) for fun time in the kitchen. Brusells Sprouts are a cruciferous vegetable. These veggies were originally named for the way their flowers seemed to form a cross or crucifix shape. But they are also known as “brassica” vegetables. That comes from their botanical name […]
