I find it interesting how some of our most meaningful activities begin with a simple thought, this thought takes on a life of its own, and then something grand happens!
In this case, the simple thought was meeting my client Lynn while on one of my frequent trips to Myrtle Beach. But thanks to Lynn’s amazing energy and organizing powers, our “meeting” turned into an opportunity to talk with dozens of women about Better Bones. And I think I learned just as much as they did.
I was struck by the personal stories and notable sincerity of these health-seeking women. As I listened, I wondered what I could do better to share more information. I found myself setting new goals for the coming year based on their top questions and concerns, which were:
- Autoimmune disease and steroid–induced osteoporosis. A full 20% of all osteoporosis in this country is caused by the use of corticosteroids such as prednisone. This doesn’t have to be, as there are excellent natural approaches to recovery from auto-immune disease .
- Bone health for breast cancer survivors. Many breast cancer treatments lead to bone loss and there is a terrific need for strong, natural bone-preservation programs, as well as nutritional and lifestyle immunity-enhancement programs.
- How worry and nervous system upset damage bone and lead to osteoporosis. For over a decade, I have noted that worry plays a big role in excess bone loss. At the same time scientists are uncovering even more ways the nervous system interacts with bone. Many of my clients fall into the “thin and worried” category and it is to them that I will dedicate this new segment of my work.
You’ll be hearing more about all of these topics in the New Year. Let me know if you have particular concerns or areas of interest, and I’ll be happy to answer your questions.
Oh yes, and to the gracious Lynn Krippel, I send a special note of thanks for arranging the wonderful Myrtle Beach event.
