Food For Healthy Bones

Mineral Water

Skelly and I love to quench our thirst.  Instead of reaching for filtered water, we drink one 750mg bottle of Gerolsteiner Mineral Water.  Not only for the bioavailability of the calcium and magnesium but because mineral water offsets a highly-acidic Western diet characterized by high grains and animal products. Drinking 1,500-2,000 mL of mineral water […]

Answers About Vitamin D

Vitamin D has gotten a lot of attention lately, especially when talking about bone health. Can we get enough Vitamin D from the sun and Vitamin D from our food? But, for the average person, the topic of vitamin D can get confusing. Since anyone can be at risk for having a vitamin D deficiency, […]

Vitamin D and Medicare

Is Vitamin D covered by Medicare? Getting my yearly blood work gave me a shock as I was handed a mystery medical bill for my Vitamin D and my other blood work. For my EU and Australia clients/readers this will not be the case for you. Medical in the US has it's own language and labyrinth. […]

My Covid Experience

It’s been awhile since our bones have connected.  I've been in the middle of my own covid-19 experience.  I’m missing our communication however, I needed to be in a place of stillness and quiet understanding my own relationship with Covid-19 and how my / our world will be reshaped.  We have all been touched by […]

Osteoporosis Related Fracture Risk

I didn't consider blood work to be a measure for osteoporosis related risk factors.   However, in this two part series on Complete Blood Count (CBC) we learn from Dr. […]

Markers: RBC count (red blood cells) MPV (mean platelet volume) NLR (neutrophil lymphocyte ratio) RDW (red cell distribution width) Hgb (hemoglobin) MCV (mean corpuscular volume) What do the markers mean?

Chocolate Almond Date Boney Treats

There are many bone-loving foods that get a twinkle light shone on them at this holiday time of year and and my Chocolate Almond Date Boney Treats gets a real twinkle. As Skelly and I were making our holiday menu lists, and checking them twice, Skelly realized that the last month of the year can […]

Resistance and Bone Health

Skelly and I were talking the other day, noting one of the many ways human beings are interesting; resistance and bone health came to mind.  When something is new or different, rather than running towards it, many times we put on the break, curious but with apprehension and a one-step-forward-two-steps back mentality.  It moves us […]

The Body Breathes Us

There are times throughout the day when my Skelly holds her breath out of fear, fatigue or stress and that's not good for bone health. There are many ways that we manipulate breath, from holding it or allowing it in/out on a shallow level to taking in tiny gulps when stressed. “It’s amazing how many […]
