Today, I am sharing why I am so dedicated to helping women understand the root cause of their bone loss. Many women think their diagnosis is the end but wIth the right diet, sleep, and exercise, it is possible to stop, slow down, or even reverse bone loss.
After I was told my hip joint collapsed I felt delicate and weak. I was afraid of further injuring my hip and consequently stopped exercising which only worsened my condition. By healing my body as a whole and committing to a strengthening yoga routine, I not only regained flexibility but I no longer feel fragile.
I know what broken feels like, which is why I am equipping you with the tools to strengthen your bones or hopefully avoid bone loss altogether. Bone remodeling is a metabolic process which is why your diet, exercise, and lifestyle heavily influence the health of your bones. With simple lifestyle changes you can heal your gut and invigorate your bones again. I created this podcast to educate and inspire you because there is hope for a stronger, healthier, and more flexible tomorrow.
