With 50% of women and 20% of men over the age of 50 years expected to break a bone (Royal Osteoporosis Society 2021), everyone wants to support good bone health – and especially if you’re perimenopausal or menopausal, which tend to speed up unwanted bone loss, increasing the risk of osteopenia and osteoporosis.
We are experts in optimizing bone health through diet, lifestyle and, where necessary, nutritional supplementation. There is a huge amount of mis-information written and broadcast about osteopenia and osteoporosis. Our aim to support you in identifying the underlying factors that could be compromising your bone health, and then recommending interventions to improve both the density and the quality of your skeleton. And you can be reassured that our recommendations are based on evidence published in the scientific literature – which we scrutinize regularly, so that you don’t have to!
We look deeply into your case history and we recommend laboratory testing in some cases, in order to create interventions that are personalized to your individual needs.
Have you ever thought, for example, about how your gastrointestinal health, your protein intake, your blood sugar balance and any inflammatory processes may be affecting your bones? We help you to find out, so that your personalized programme pushes bone building-cells (osteoblasts) to work harder, and curbs unwanted activity from the bone-dissolving cells (osteoclasts).
Note that the service offered in no way replaces that provided by medical experts. Lorraine is not a doctor. Rather, she is a registered nutritionist and nutritional therapist, and thus her work complements, rather than replaces, medical advice. If you suspect you may have signs and symptoms of an underlying disease process, you should see your doctor for medical investigations.
