Healthy Bones – Preventing and Reversing Osteoporosis


body form running

Ahhh…the Skeletal System; what a masterpiece! The human adult body contains 206 bones with, surprisingly, more than half in the hands and feet. Keeping our bones healthy is crucial for anyone who likes to walk, sit, stand or run – or do anything for this matter!

What is required to create and maintain a healthy skeleton and to ward off osteoporosis? Must we—as the dairy, pharmaceutical and medical industries advocate—drink milk, swallow copious amounts of calcium tablets and fill ourselves with vitamin D? Why is low bone density so rampant in our modern-day society—and apparently increasing in our population?

In this webinar, Dr. Klaper explores the amazing, secret life of your bones and what it takes to keep them strong throughout life. This is a webinar that you will want to run to!

After his initial 49-minute presentation, Dr. Klaper devotes the rest of this 76-minute webinar to answering questions from attendees. Discussion includes bone and muscle strength, DEXA (bone density) scans, calcium (in food and supplements), salt, sugar, sunshine, hormones, inflammation, and the use of weight vests.
