Do our Bones Influence our Minds?

“After twenty years of treating osteoporosis, I believe that it is a
completely preventable lifestyle disease.

— Mark Hyman, MD

Author of UltraMetabolism and medical director of the UltraWellness Center
(Lenox, Massachusetts) in his foreward to The Whole-Food Guide to Strong Bones

“The FDA approved the drugs . . . based on studies
showing that they increased bone mineral density.
However, no studies have definitely shown that
higher density actually reduces bone fractures.”

Matthew Perone, AP Health Writer

“Keeping bones strong involves eating a clean, whole foods diet,
promoting an alkaline body environment, supporting digestion,
taking supplements as necessary, staying active, and decreasing stress.”

— Kathleen Bundy, MS RD CLT

“Weight-bearing exercise does not mean using weights or resistance training,
but carrying your body weight in a weight-bearing fashion. You want to build bone density?
Get your hips over your ankles and your torso over your hips. And then walk around a lot.
Walking in alignment is the most natural osteogenic (bone-building) thing you can do!

— Katy Bowman, MS

“Activities that involve impacts with the earth, such as running and jumping,
are the most effective way to improve bone health.”

— Dr. John Tobias

Professor of Rheumatology at the University of Bristol
