The two years prior to this scan I started following Better Bones Better Body.
Congratulations on your bone mineral density (BMD) improvements! You’re an inspiration! Thank you for describing your regimen. It sounds doable.
I poked around on Amazon.com and found the book you followed (written by Susan Brown). I’ll go ahead and buy it. (Just wish she had a Kindle version.)
Thanks, too, for providing the links to those two papers. My goodness, the correlation between low BMD and ApoE4 (and ApoE2) in that one study is disturbing. Anecdotally, my 3/3 sister has strong bones. She’ll never even get osteopenia. Here I am, 4/4, with osteoporosis in my hips and spine.
I tested my urine pH a few years ago when I did Summer Bock’s Probiotic Power Cleanse course. I was clearly acidic and didn’t even attempt the deep phase of the cleanse. I’ve been dealing with mold toxicity for a long time, so I suspect that’s been a factor in my case.
I can’t thank you enough!
P.S. I’m sorry to hear about your technical issues. If my only computer was my phone, I’d be in big trouble.
