Knowledge has organizing power. I am here as your advocate to help you understand the real state of your bone health and guide you in organizing a step-by-step program to build bone strength naturally, the way nature intended.

Why the Better Bones Better Body® Program is unique

Our program is time-tested evolving from 3 decades of clinical practice with a sustained focus on rethinking osteoporosis and osteopenia. We are thought leaders in the field and maintain our unwavering focus on the evolving science of natural bone health.

We champion the concept that our bones are meant to last a lifetime and all excessive bone weakening has a cause. The first step in any bone health program is to search for hidden causes of bone loss. We can help you uncover the underlying causes of bone weaknesses and help you seek the path to reduce these burdens.

Our program is holistic and comprehensive covering all the important elements of a natural bone building program. Guidance in understanding the causes of your bone loss, the development of bone-sparing Alkaline for Life Diet®, optimal nutritional supplementation, digestion and detoxification enhancement, exercise, stress reduction, emotional well-being enhancement and testing for success are all important parts of our program.

In the Better Bones Program you are taught to take charge of your bone health; you need no longer live in fear of osteoporosis. Over time you will master the key steps to rebuilding bone strength while at the same time increasing overall health, fitness and joy of life.

The Six Steps of the Better Bones, Better Body® Program

In your first appointment with Dr. Brown you will cover the following:

  • 1. Personalized Case Assessment

    Is your bone loss normal or excessive? What does your bone density tests really tell you? Are you losing excessive bone right now?  Are you at risk of needless osteoporotic fracture? If so, what are the reasons for any existing bone weakening? Have you been given a good medical workup looking for the hidden causes of bone loss? Should you consider bone drugs? These are all items Dr. Brown will help you asses in your first appointment.

  • 2. Develop An Alkaline Diet

    pH balance is a well documented factor highly influencing aging bone loss. In the Better Bones, Better Body® Program  Dr. Brown will  teach you how to assess your acid-base balance and how to develop a bone and muscle preserving alkaline diet.  Our Better Bones Support Kit makes it easy for you to understand the importance of pH balance and to successfully alkalize.

  • 3. Individualized Nutritional Supplementation

    Dozens of nutrients are essential for optimal bone health, and most of these we seriously under-consume. Maximization of all key bone-building nutrients is essential, as is the correct balance between nutrients and the proper, alkalizing form of each nutrient. In your new client appointment Dr. Brown will give you and personalized supplement protocol to help you begin to rebuild your bones naturally. 

  • 4. Enhance digestion and detoxification

    Our amazing body is formed from the foods we eat, digest and assimilate. Strong digestion is essential for delivering the nutrients and energy essential to maintain and build bone.  Toxins such as heavy metals, pesticides, plasticizers, petrochemicals and the like each have their own way of interfering with cellular functioning and utilization of our nutrients. In the Better Bones, Better Body® Program in partnership with Dr. Brown’s recommendations you will begin to build digestive strength and detoxify the body.

  • 5. Exercise into bone health

    Science documents that our bones respond to the load put upon them and that exercise builds bone and muscle strength while enhancing balance and preventing falls. In the Better Bones, Better Body® Program we guide you in the development of a personalized exercise program.  Also you will learn specific exercises targeted to strengthen the spine, hip and entire skeleton.

  • 6. Stress, worry reduction and the nourishing of emotional resilience

    Dr. Brown was warning women of the stress-osteoporosis link long before scientists noted that stress damages bone. For many years we have helped women understand that worry, anxiety and stress directly deplete bone. This damage occurs largely via the sympathetic nervous system and the adrenal hormones of distress, Better Bones, Better Body® Program will help you develop a step-by-step program for reducing anxiety and creating emotional resilience, mindfulness and peace of mind.
