Prunes for your bones

Eating prunes for your bones can help prevent or delay bone loss by reducing inflammation and oxidative stress. My prune blog offers two delightful recipes.

Skelly and I spend a lot of time trying to get the word out about strong bones and how to feed them.  But a lot of women we meet don’t give their bones a second thought – until it’s too late.

Calcium-rich sprouted organic almonds are a good food choice for your bones.

Adding sesame and hemp seeds with Plantation blackstrap molasses make this a bone-loving snack.

A version of this recipe was served at my event:

The Whole Body Approach to Osteoporosis with Keith McCormick, DC. 

It was met with a “yum” and an “ah” and……

“Can I please have that recipe?”

Calcium Rich Vinegar

I love my bones and I love finding new ways to feed my bones.

My bones were jumping for joy having found The Healthy Bones Nutrition Plan and Cookbook – Medicine Through Food Guide by Dr. Laura Kelly and Helen Bryman Kelly.  Inside the book offers a recipe for Bone-Building Calcium-Rich Vinegar.

“Just one tablespoon of Bone-Building Vinegar equals 350-400 mg of calcium (1,000-1,200 recommended for menopausal and post menopausal women)”.[1] (more…)

Go Nuts for Your Bones

Bone Loving Almonds

Nothing I like more than a handful of crunchy nuts for a snack. And Skelly’s with me on this.

You see, nuts are full of healthy fats, protein, and fiber that fill you up. But they are also a treasure box of minerals that build strong bones.

Maybe you have a favorite nut that you keep on hand. But I want you to think about rotating your nuts or eating lots of mixed nuts. That’s because each type of nut offers something special for your bones. If you stick to just one you’re missing out.

Here are the nuts I like best and what they do for your bones:

strontium supplements

 

A lot of people are excited about a new “magic pill” for bones. But my Skelly is a little skeptical. I’m talking about strontium.

Most people have never heard of this mineral.   It’s named after Strontian, a village in Scotland where it was discovered in 1790. Today it’s used mostly in industry.

What’s the number one supplement you need for your bones?

Most people I talk to will say calcium, of course. In fact, more than half of women over 60 take calcium supplements. I get it. They don’t want to break a bone. And they don’t want to have osteoporosis.

But instead of getting harder bones, they may be getting hardened arteries.

More recently, this kitchen staple has been shunned in favor of olive oil and canola oil. But here’s why we should reserve a place at the table for good old-fashioned butter. (more…)

Music Of The Plants

Before venturing to Damanhur, an ecovillage and spiritual community located in the Piedmont region of northern Italy, where I was joined by 17 seekers who’s goals were to deepen their inner life and to study “Music of the Plants”

…….there was much going on.

My life and my bones were stressed.

PBS had just released “Stronger Bones – Longer Life” to 157 stations.
