5 Tips for Improving Bone Health
Relieving  Osteoporosis
"Osteoporosis is a disease that lowers bone mass and weakens bone tissue," explains Debra Spatz, DO, an osteopathic orthopedic physician. "While it's often considered an older person's disease, it can strike at any age."
Happy Couple
The most common injuries from the disease include hip, spine and wrist fractures. However, many of the contributing factors to this disease are preventable. Proper nutrition and weight bearing exercise can prevent and improve Osteoporosis.

The Practitioners of Alternative Therapy Can Help you 
Avoid, Treat and Reverse 
Symptoms of Osteoporosis.

Andrzej Strzalkowski, RPT 
Andrzej Strzalkowski is an Osteopathic physical therapist.  In contrast to traditional physical therapists, Andrzej brings specialized training in the body's musculo-skeletal system to his practice.  This indept knowledge provides insight to how illness or injury in one part of the body has profound effects on other, seemingly non-related areas of the body.

Andrzej's highly refined diagnostic capabilities will find "non-skeletal" areas of the body affected by osteoporosis, that may not be experiencing pain, but are adversely affected.  His gentle, hands-on manipulation will reduce stress on the joints which will improve structural weaknesses.  Additionally, his craniosacral manipulation will re-energize the body, reducing overall stress.   By releasing tension and realigning the body,  blood flow is improved, the joints are aligned, pain is relieved and your body's healing force is released.

Mend and Strengthen: 
How Yoga Improves Bone Mass 
Exercise has long been recommended as a means to prevent osteoporosis.  However, high impact workouts such as running, aerobics and even the effects of free weight lifting can cause pain to arthritis sufferers and in some cases facilitate bone loss.

Yoga is the answer.  The simple, low impact practice of yoga strengthens the muscles that support the bones. 

Better yet, the contractions of the muscles against the bone applies a structurally safe force that, over time, actually spurs growth.  
This growth improves bone strength and density.  Makes sense!  Think of it like kneading air out of dough.  

Yoga will improve your posture, prevent and often reverse bone loss and provide an incredible feeling of peace!

A 15 year practitioner, Brook Longobardi, structures her classes to the nTriangleeeds of the students.  Inflexibility, pain and weak muscles are reasons to try Yoga, not avoid it!  Try a class and see how your body and mind respond.

Enjoy better posture, health and 
a renewed sense of calm!

Try Yoga! Your Bones will  be glad you did!

5 Tips for Improving Bone Health


Get walking; studies show that weight bearing exercise encourage bone growth. Walking, jogging, tai chi, help your circulation AND helps your body to build more bone.




2. Pump some iron, lift weights.  

The tugging action of muscles as they work against resistance helps encourage bone growth. For more click here



3. Get out in the sun, but not too much. Low Vitamin D levels have been linked to cancer and heart disease. Getting the right amount of sun to get your body to make enough vitamin D is an art. Too much sun and you increase your risk for skin cancer.


Take in early morning and evening sun to reduce the skin cancer risk.


4. Take Vitamin D supplementation.  Vitamin D3 or cholecalciferol is a natural form of Vitamin D and the recommended type.  Cataplex D by Standard Process contains Vit D3 as well as Calcium and Vitamin A which are essential for Vitamin D's assimilation.  

Cataplex D and other bone health

products can be ordered through Ellen Teeter, AP at Alternative Therapy.


5. Consider Traditional Chinese Medicine for improving your bone strength.  The vitality of the body declines as we age due to blood not moving well, weakening digestion and factors of our genetic inheritance that predispose us to certain conditions.  The Traditional Chinese Medical system is natural, safe and effective in improving the body's function and vitality.


Acupuncture improves blood flow, reduces inflammation and combined with herbs can increase vitality and energy. 


Consult Ellen Teeter, AP, Acupuncture Physician and Herbalist to learn how Traditional Chinese Medicine can improve your health and vitality.
