WHEN: Thursday, 8/1/19
Bones are living organisms that take us from our first step to our last.
We often think of osteoporosis and osteopenia as problems of the elderly.
Bone health begins in childhood as we build up our bone bank account. You're never too young or too old to eat for your bones.
However, more and more women and men are developing osteoporosis and osteopenia in their late 40's, 50's and early 60's.
In this presentation, Irma will debunk the food myths around bone health and advise how to feed your bones in an easy and effortless way no matter what your age.
Vitamin K2 in the form of Mk4 and Mk 7 drive calcium into the bones?
Pasture raised eggs provide Vitamin K2?
You'll gain a deeper understanding of the best bone tests that are available, the best place to have your tests, and what other tests can determine if you are losing bone.
Please join us, Thursday, August 1st, 2019 at 6pm for an interactive conversation as we dive into the marrow of your bones!

Irma Jennings, INHC, Holistic Bones Coach went from the boardroom on Wall Street to the cutting board in her kitchen after returning to school at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in 2003.
Her diagnosis of osteopenia inspired her to create her company, Food for Healthy Bones. She advises clients on optimum food for bones, as well as on many other steps they can take on their bone-building journey.
She was part of the (2016) PBS special, "Stronger Bones, Longer Life." For the past 10 years, Irma has blogged monthly on Food for Healthy Bones. Today she is happy to report her bones are strong!
An incredible group of women came with their "eager to learn" questions and desires to understand the inner workings of their bones. They learned the "next steps" for their diagnosis.
They were fed nourishing homemade bone-loving food, sipped organic mint tea and enjoyed themselves tremendously.
Guests traveled from Texas, Ohio, Iowa, NJ, PA, MA, the east and west coast of Florida.
My intention is to recreate this event in New Hope, PA.
