The 6 Steps to the Better Bones, Better Body Program

Step 1: Asses What is Really Going on

It is very difficult to solve a problem you don’t understand. The first step in the Better Bones, Better Body Program is to assess your individual case.

  • Are you currently losing bone?
  • Is your bone loss excessive?
  • What type of osteoporosis or osteopenia do you have?
  • Have you had all the medical tests that are necessary to determine any hidden causes of your bone loss?

We offer many free and paid tools to help you understand what is your real risk and what you should do next! Free Tool -- Our Bone Health Assessment.

Step 2: Slight Dietary Tweaks

Much of the success we have had with the Better Bones, Better Body program comes from our appreciation of the importance of pH balance. Gaining and maintaining a slightly alkaline balance is essential maximizing lifelong bone health. Your first-morning urine measurement can provide great insights into your mineral adequacy. A first-morning urine pH reading of less than 6.5 is an indirect sign of low mineral reserves.


Step 3: Boost Your Nutrient Intake

Dr. Brown has researched over the past 30 years that there is at least 20 nutrients that are critical to rebuilding and maintaining bone strength as we age.

Step 4: Weight-Bearing & Mindful Exercise

It is well documented that bone grows in strength according to the load put upon it. It is also clear that muscles and bone form one single unit and as we build muscle we build bone. All this is to say that a serious exercise program is an essential component in the Better Bones Program. Many types of exercise help build bone, and we provide a variety of possible exercise programs and tools for you to chose from.

Step 5: Increase Digestion & Detoxification

There is no getting around the fact that we are what we eat. While our body is formed by the food we eat, this food is of little value if not digested and assimilated properly. Over the decades I have seen poor digestion again and again linked to declining bone strength. Uncovering any digestive weakness and strengthening digestion is a “must-do” for all the other steps of the program to work harmoniously

Step 6: Breathe

Here’s a secret about bone health . . . our emotions are key overlooked players. In particular, the hormones of distress directly damage bone. Learning how to ease a worried mind and create emotional resilience helps promote stronger bones and greater happiness. Unfortunately, even the way modern medicine speaks about osteoporosis causes stress and anxiety. As I like to say “Don’t let them scare you.” Take heart and take action . . . you have the potential to heal and grow stronger.
