  • All about strengthening our beautiful bones

About

This blog is about bones …. specifically, about my journey to increased bone strength after surgery for a broken hip.  I’ve known for awhile that I needed to be more serious about increasing my commitment to diet, exercise and supplements that could make a difference.  I would like to record the process and hence these daily musings.  I do invite others to share their experience of broken bones.  It would not only help me but others who may be on a similar quest.

  1. This is such a needed subject in our hustle and bustle world. I am 49 years old, and to date have had 31 broken bones.

    Fortunately for me, I started doing something about my brittle bones during my pregnancy with my only daughter 24 years ago. It was fear that I would pass along my bone density and brittleness… I wouldn’t be able to deliver her with breaking every bone in her body that got me moving in the right direction.

    I shudder to think how many more bones would have broken if I hadn’t started on high doses of calcium, magnesium and vitamin D.

    I look forward to reading more about your research and discoveries.

    • Wow, that has to be a record, Cenay. I thought my four broken bones were a lot to contend with!

      May I ask if the high doses of calcium, magnesium and Vitamin D have been enough to change bone density? Do you continue them to this day? Do you do anything else to strengthen your bones?

      Really do appreciate your comment. I am just starting out and your encouragement is heart-warming!
