– Quantitative three-pronged program to improve bone and total body health –
ASHBURN, Va., Sept. 16, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Osteoporosis is a complex and multifactorial disorder that is growing in prevalence. More than half of Medicare-aged women and more than a fifth of comparable age men have one or more osteoporotic fractures confirmed during their lifetime. Recovery from large bone fractures is slow and leads to a more sedentary and less engaged life with greater morbidity and accelerated mortality.
“Natural Bone Health: A Practitioner’s Guide to Healthy Bone, Joints and Muscles” is now available for purchase.
Thought-leading scientist and integrative healthcare pioneer, Russell Jaffe, MD, PhD, and natural bone health expert Susan Brown, PhD, CNS, with contributors Jayashree Mani, MS, CCN and Marcy Jaffe, MPA, MBA, explore the components of bone health – from submolecular to macromolecular – and offer a quantitative approach to epigenetic factors, providing simple clinically-useful integrative tests and a targeted action plan that includes diet, hydration, supplementation and lifestyle recommendations that will protect bone, joint and muscle health as we age.
The book covers an “Alkaline Way” approach to bone and body health consisting of:
Measuring and Correcting Net Acid Excess
Measuring and Reducing Inflammation and Oxidative Stress
Evaluating Neurohormone Status
Dr. Brown notes, “While the average woman loses roughly 45% of her bone density between the ages of 35 and 85, we see clients stabilize bone mass quickly, with bone mass gains over the longer term being more the rule than the exception. Those who diligently work through the steps of our program put control back into their control systems, gain bone strength, and reduce fracture risk.”
