Reclaiming Health with Functional Medicine: Dr. Inna's Journey to Overcoming Osteoporosis

In Episode 59 of the Stronger Bones Lifestyle Podcast, host Debi Robinson welcomes physician  Dr. Inna Lozinskaya, to explore the limitations of conventional medical approaches when it comes to thriving, rather than just surviving

Dr. Inna is a functional medicine expert who helps her patients restore energy, sleep, weight, optimize hormones, turn back biological clock, and feel like best selves again. Today she  shares her own journey of health challenges that traditional medicine couldn’t resolve. With fatigue and memory issues clouding her day-to-day life, Dr. Inna turned to functional medicine to reclaim her health and vitality.

Listen today as we dive into why your gut health, nutrition, lifestyle choices, and mental well-being are all pivotal elements that play a role in the development and treatment of osteoporosis. Hormonal balance is critical, especially during menopause, and Dr. Inna will discuss the potential role of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, but also why it’s not a silver bullet unless the body’s foundation is solid.

"Everything in the body is connected" [7:20]

"If you want to survive than traditional medicine is perfect, it won’t let you die but if you want to thrive, it has to be a different approach." [26:04]

"You really have to love yourself enough to trust yourself more than you trust the system." [27:19]

"I like that root, and not even just one root cause, because when it comes to bones or really any aspect in the body, it's multifaceted. So then it becomes root causes." [35:35]

BHRT can potentially reverse tissue damage if started within six to ten years of menopause, according to Dr. Inna. However, if started later, it may only stop or slightly improve the damage. For patients with osteoporosis who are 12 years past menopause, BHRT may still offer benefits, though its effectiveness can vary.

Dr. Inna advocates for a lifestyle-based approach, which includes managing stress physiology, adrenal function, and addressing hormone imbalances through nutrition, gut health, and lifestyle modifications. Bio identical hormones or hormone replacement therapy can also be important for addressing hormonal deficiencies.

Yes, Dr. Inna states that bone loss is reversible and that they have seen people reverse severe osteoporosis within a year or two by addressing the root causes and implementing appropriate lifestyle and medical interventions.
