Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Dr. Inna emphasizes that the gut is the first place to begin when addressing osteoporosis or any health issues because gut health is crucial for overall well-being. Nutrition plays a significant role as it directly affects gut health.

Nutrition determines gut health, which in turn influences how hormones function and how effectively the body can detoxify and absorb nutrients. Poor nutrition can lead to toxins building up in the body, negatively impacting health, including bone strength.


According to Dr. Inna, proper gut health and balanced nutrition might eliminate the need for hormone replacement therapy, as the body could naturally produce adequate hormone levels if it’s functioning optimally.

Dr. Inna suggests that broccoli is a superior source of calcium compared to milk, which can create acidity and inflammation in the body, thereby affecting bone health negatively.

Gluten can cause the gut lining to inflame and swell, leading to gaps between cells that should be tightly joined. This allows particles that should not be absorbed into the bloodstream to pass through, leading to inflammation and other health issues.
