When you first get a diagnosis of osteoporosis, or osteopenia, a lot comes up. How do I avoid being overwhelmed by my options, prevent fractures, and ensure my ongoing independence? What terminology do I need to understand? What actions can I take? How do I effectively advocate for my own care? Providers like me who specialize in musculoskeletal issues can be central to your care, but we are not the only members you should consider adding to your care team. A qualified patient navigator specializing in bone health can make your journey to healthy bones much easier for you by helping build a support team, understanding your next actionable steps, and determining how to forge effective partnerships with every member of your bone team.

Irma Jennings, INHC, Holistic Bone Coach, cultivated her passion for and earned her certification in integrative nutrition and health from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in 2003.
Continued studies with extraordinary "Food as Medicine” teachers around the world in India, Bali, Costa Rica, and Thailand fed her insatiable love for the healing qualities of food.
Inspired by her diagnosis of osteopenia in 2005, she used "food as medicine" and lifestyle changes to strengthen her bones. She created Food for Healthy Bones™, a company committed to helping others turn a terrifying quality of life-threatening condition into the impetus to partner with food. She applies her knowledge, years of training, and research in the bone world. For each client, an exercise referral program is presented. Stress reduction yields a better outcome.
Today, in her 70's, Irma's spine and hips have not become osteoporotic. Osteoporosis is in her forearm only.
PBS “Stronger Bones, Longer Life” with Dr. Lani Simpson showcased Irma cooking Food for Healthy Bones.
Private sessions (in person and on zoom) where her clients exceed their expectations about living vibrant lives, understanding their diagnosis, loving and understanding their bones.
