Why Chocolate Is Good For Your Bones

Eating chocolate is almost a spiritual experience for me.  I turn it into a meditation.  I sit down.  I close my eyes. I place one square of dark chocolate on my tongue.  I don’t chew.  I just let the chocolate take its own good time to melt into my body.  I taste the bitterness and […]

5 Reasons Your Bones Love Mushrooms

Here are 5 reasons your bones love mushrooms.  Did you know there are more than 38,000 varieties of mushrooms in the world?  It’s pretty astounding.  Some are superfoods, some are medicinal, and some are deadly poisons.

Brittle Bones: Is It Something In the Water?

Brittle Bones and fluoride?  Is it the water?  When I was growing up in the 1950s, the government added fluoride to our drinking water.  That was supposed to be the end of tooth decay. But when I was 8 years old my dentist told me I had more cavities than teeth!  So I guess the […]

Butternut squash is related to pumpkin and, in fact, my friends in Australia and […]

Mighty Miso Helps You Build Healthy Bones

How can that be?  One of the doctors explained that everyone […]

Got Almond Milk?

Got Almond Milk?  You’ve heard me say this before.  When it comes to healthy bones I don’t recommend drinking milk.  Yes, milk is high in calcium.  But it’s also an acidic food that over time can lead to weaker – not stronger - bones. Americans rely on milk for their bones thanks to a huge […]

Is Your Blood Sucking the Life Out of Your Bones?

I was recently intrigued by a report on PBS about how the rising acid levels in the oceans are eating away at the coral reefs.  Those mineral-rich “bones” of the sea suffer from their own version of “osteoporosis.” And it’s not just the coral.  Marine animals like scallops, oysters, and clams that rely on calcium […]

Putting Meat on Your Bones the Grass Fed Way

I like to feed my bones red meat especially during the winter months and the transitional months of spring when my body craves heartier fare. Now, you don't have to have meat for healthy bones.  But if you're a person like me who feels more energetic eating some meat,  it's a good choice. Red meat […]
