Whether it’s a 9-hour car ride or a quick trip up the elevator, I make the most of these precious bits of extra time to build better bones: breathing deeply, shaking off stress, or doing a quick Qi Gong meridian stretch.
Now I’m adding “listening to podcasts” to my list of do-anywhere activities that help promote bone health. And you can too, by downloading my Better Bones podcasts, now available on iTunes.
These episodes are easy ways for you to get key information about maximizing your bone health during the menopause transition. I give useful tips, and chat with Joan, a real woman who asks “why do I have to pay attention to bone health when I have all these menopause symptoms to deal with?” Joan is also quite honest about her lifestyle — such as her lack of vegetable-eating — and we discuss good, realistic steps to get her started on healthy changes.
To listen to the podcasts simply go to iTunes and search for the Women to Women channel. If you don’t already listen to iTunes, there’s a free download, along with instructions on how to use it. Then, tune into the podcasts now available:
• Best natural ways to stop bone loss and support bone health during menopause (featuring my conversation with Joan)
• How to stay vibrant at the prime of your life — the fascinating side of menopause
• How to reduce bone loss and build new bone mass in post menopause
• How to prevent severe vitamin D deficiency after menopause
We’ll be adding other topics soon. To make sure you don’t miss anything, you can subscribe to receive all the podcasts for free. Please feel free to leave feedback for any of the episodes.
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.
