Well Balanced DietOften times in life we find difficult situations are really a blessing in disguise.  Find out how our expert contributor, Irma Jennings, turned her struggle with bone health into a passionate business that helped her – and now others!

Learn what symptoms to look for and how to treat osteoporosis naturally using the following tips:

My diagnosis of osteopenia was delivered in 2005. Guess what? My diagnosis did not develop into the full blown osteoporosis. Why not? Because of the steps I implemented resisting my doctors advice to take the bone building drugs laced with side effects.

Good News! My diagnosis catapulted me into niching my health coaching business to that of Holistic Bone Coach with my company; Food for Healthy Bones.

Symptoms for osteoporosis:
*Receding gums
*Difficulty in rising from a seated position.
*Difficulty in opening jars

Here’s my 3 B.E.T(s) Bone Empowering Tips – Simple Steps

1) DAILY: A cup of warm water with the juice of a whole lemon every morning. This simple step alkalizes the body. When the body is leaning towards a position of acidity by consuming animal protein and processed sugar in the form of muffins, pasta, breads, bagels, white rice, and alcohol, to name a few, the body needs to return to balance. How does it do that? It leaches calcium from the bones to balance the acid/alkaline relationship.

2) Eat whole grains. Many grains are full of the essential vitamins and minerals the bones need – yes bones need more than just calcium! Whole grains need to be soaked overnight to remove the natural phytic acid which prevents mineral absorption.

This is truly a simple step.

Before you go to bed, immerse a cup of organic oats, or any other grains in water (cover the grains completely). Go to sleep and in the morning dump the soaked grains into a strainer allowing the soaked water to be removed.  Place grains in the fridge until your ready to cook them. They’ll cook faster once they’ve been soaked. A great online source for organic grains is Shiloh Farms.

3) Eat your veggies especially green leafy veggies. Really? Yep! How often do we need to hear this? To make consumption easier, I suggest my clients make green smoothies. A Vitamix blender is best as it’s high speeds breaks down the cell walls
of the veggies for easier assimilation.

Don’t really like veggies?
Here’s a bone recipe co-created with my fellow health counselor, Vicki Sarnoff that will chase away the “I hate veggies”.
