Host Debi Robinson on Why She Became a Bone Specialist

One of the things that excites me about working in the bone health space…

Is digging deep into the root causes of bone loss.

Because it’s not quite as cut and dry as we may think!

And one of the ways I unravel the mysteries as to why you’re losing more bone than you’re building…

Is through functional lab testing.

Functional labs help me look at the “whole picture” of your body — so I can get to the bottom of what’s at the root of your diagnosis.

You see, osteoporosis is the result of how your body is (not) working like it should.

And finding out what’s preventing your body from building bone like it did before is the key to slowing, stopping, or reversing bone loss.

After running thousands of functional labs on women all over the world…

I’ve discovered certain trends.

Trends that give me clues and tell me exactly why one woman is losing bone differently than another.

In episode 47 of the Stronger Bones Lifestyle Podcast  I want to share with you what I look for in functional tests and how these clues can steer you on the right path to unbreakable bones.

Here’s what’s in store this week:

  • Why being on supplements and eating a “healthy” diet may not be enough to build stronger bones
  • How gut immunity impacts how well you absorb nutrients from food (and what I look for in functional labs to see if this is happening)
  • What’s actually stopping bone building (HINT: you might have trillions of these in your gut…)
  • Why interpreting a functional lab is the key to getting the results you want
    How the “mineral status” of your body influences your bone growth

"There is so much information out there and we are all trying to do the best we can." [12:05]

"Because without a healthy guy you cannot have healthy bones." [17:24]

"If you are triggering inflammation with food then lets stop bringing that food in and stop that inflammation because that is one of the factors behind your bone loss." [21:25]

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Yoga can stimulate bone growth in your 20’s and can reverse bone loss in your 60’s. Yoga creates stronger bones because it has 10-20 times greater pressure than gravity.
In addition to bone growth, Yoga improves balance, anxiety, and posture.
The osteocytes in your legs govern your appetite, which is why Yoga promotes weight loss.
Rotation is completely safe for women suffering from osteoporosis or osteopenia. Safe spinal rotation involves having proper length and extension in the thoracic curve.
