Curious Connection, Part 2: Calcification & K2 to the Rescue
In my previous blog, I began the discussion around the curious connection between heart disease and osteoporosis. Oddly enough there are many incidences that show these conditions often occur together. There are certainly many shared risk factors like smoking, lack of...
The Curious Connection: Heart disease and osteoporosis
February is American Heart Month. A great time of the year to focus on caring for your heart. Did you know that caring for your heart may also help care for your bones? Interestingly, studies have shown that people with heart disease are more likely to break a bone...
Can’t Kick those Cravings? It’s not your fault!
We are 4 weeks into 2021, and if you are like most you are finding it difficult to keep your New Year’s resolutions alive. Your enthusiasm for eating clean and exercising daily is fading. You are falling back into your old pattern. You are finding it harder and harder...
My personal story and what it means to you.
I suffered from GI symptoms for years. I had ongoing stomach pain, heartburn, bloating, and excessive gas that left me feeling miserable, and my stomach distended day after day. When I sought medical treatment, I was first diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome and...
No doubt you have seen those commercials for medications when the announcer speeds through the list of side effects at the very end. Or opened up the package insert that comes along with an over-the-counter or prescription drug and saw a long list of possible side...
What Does Your Poo Say About You?
Last week I had a client who thought it was completely normal that she only had 2 bowel movements a week! She said she has had only 2 weekly bowel movements a week for most of her adult life and considers that normal for her. And not to dive too deep here, but she...
Initially, I went to Susan Brady because my family doctor told me to take a holiday from the prescription bone density medicine that I had been taking it for many years. I avoid dairy since I am lactose intolerant and sensitive to dairy protein. I was confident that Susan could recommend a superior quality calcium, balanced with other supplements that would help provide the nutrients I needed for bone health. In addition to recommendations for supplements, she has evaluated my diet and my exercise regimen, making suggestions as needed. With guidance from Susan I have been able to maintain bone health without additional bone density medicine for several years now. ~K.N.
Alkaline Based Diet
While providing rehabilitation after my two hip surgeries, Susan also educated me in the importance of proper nutrition for strengthening my bones and improving my bone density. She encouraged me to eat an alkaline-based diet and to eliminate the junk food I was so fond of. Not only did I heal quickly, but also the doctors were amazed by the rapid bone growth as noted on my x-rays. I continue to include chia and pumpkin seeds in my diet, as well as other foods that are alkaline based. I honestly have Susan to thank for this complete transformation in my diet which has allowed me to go back to wearing heels which I thought I would never be able to do again. Nutrition matters — I am a perfect example of good bones from good food! ~R.G.
Guess who no longer has osteoporosis in her spine?? DEXA says now -2.4 osteopenia where was -3.2 before. HUGE improvement. No medication, just exercise and nutrition. I still have a ways to go with my hips and femoral neck, but this is really great news for me! ~D.S.
Proper Exercise and Nutrition
“Susan Brady is very knowledgeable about osteoporosis. In 2016, I was diagnosed with osteoporosis in my lower back. Through proper exercise and nutrition, Susan was able to guide me towards a regimen that would in turn almost reverse my symptoms. Because of her method, I have been able to curb my bone loss, gain strength, and improve my overall health. I feel that I am on the road to a happier, healthier lifestyle thanks to Susan.”~ B.L.

After being diagnosed with osteoporosis, I began sifting through all the information available on nutrition and osteoporosis, but it was confusing and time consuming. Even though I thought my diet was good, Susan gave me advice on how to make it even better! I benefited very much from Susan’s nutritional advice and guidance for safe and effective exercises. My recent bone scan showed improvements in both my hip and my spine, so I am encouraged that all the changes that I have made are working! ~ M.R.
