As a bone health nutritionist, I describe my job as a cross between scientist, detective, coach, teacher and personal assistant — along with nutritionist.
That’s because much of my work involves researching and determining the true causes of osteopenia, osteoporosis, bone weakness and low trauma fractures.
Of course, it also includes informing and guiding my patients on their paths to lifelong natural bone health.
One of my most important roles is to help you address specific concerns about your own individual bone health, such as:
• What do the results of your bone density test really mean?
• Is diet-related acid eating your bones?
• Which of your nutritional and lifestyle patterns promote bone health and which ones damage bone?
• What is the best exercise program for you?
• Are there hidden medical causes of your bone loss?
I also help you monitor the success of your program and so you can make adjustments as needed. This all helps you understand that by working with a bone health nutritionist, you can move from being confused and worried about your bone health to being proactive and empowered. See how you can achieve optimal bone health. Book a personal consultation with me.
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.
