Happy Bones, Happy Life

Apr 2, 2024

Osteoporosis is a silent disease, meaning it often has no symptoms. People only get tested after they've had a fall and broken some bones. 


Everyone’s bones become weaker as they age, but this process happens too quickly in some people. Women usually lose bone rapidly when they reach menopausal age. 


So when should you see a doctor? How is Osteoporosis diagnosed and treated? What are the critical steps to take after an Osteoporosis diagnosis? 


In this episode, my guest, Dr. Lani Simpson, and I discuss this and other information about bone health. 


Dr. Lani is a chiropractic doctor and a Certified Clinical (bone) Densitometrist (CCD). A riveting, seasoned, professional speaker, Dr. Lani expounds and astounds audiences with the fascinating world of bones, bone health, and Osteoporosis. She is the author of the No-Nonsense Bone Health Guide

“For me, you have to think about bone density as one part of the information, and then you think about the TBS as at least as much, if not more, information. That bone quality is very, very important. So, keep in mind that I have people with normal bone density who are fracturing easily. That's because their bone quality is not good.” - Dr. Lani Simpson
