I use a lot of their knowledge in my new video “Tips for building bone health during early post-menopause”, which includes a combination of the following strategies:
• Taking care of yourself
• Exercising with an eye toward building bone mass
• Reinforcing your nutrition and supplement program
I also give you ideas for incorporating each strategy to prevent excessive bone loss in early post-menopause, the time when accelerated bone loss takes place.
More information about natural options for strong bones and reducing your risk of osteoporosis are part of my Personal Program for Better Bones.
We created the Better Bones blog as our forum to express opinions and educate the public about natural means of supporting and improving bone health and overall wellness. As part of this forum, we sometimes discuss medical issues and medications, and their effects on bone health in general. However, we cannot advise readers about specific medical issues in this forum. If you wish to obtain advice from Susan E. Brown, PhD, about your specific bone health and nutritional concerns, please visit our Consultations page. Other specific medical questions should be referred to your healthcare provider.
