The Essential Thryroid Cookbook

Did you know your thyroid can make or break your bones?

Chances are you know someone with an underactive thyroid. Maybe it’s you…

I’m not surprised. Hypothyroidism has become an epidemic. It’s estimated to occur in up to 6.5 percent of people. It’s twice as likely to hit you if you’re a woman and three times more likely if you’re white.[i]

In a minute, I’ll share with you a great new resource Skelly and I have found for making sure your thyroid is always in tip top shape – naturally.

Build Healthy Bones While You Sleep

Bones need sleep

At the end of a long day I am bone tired. But when my head hits the pillow, my Skelly still has lots of work to do. Here’s what I mean…

Your bones have a daily cycle just like the rest of your body.

They are built up by special cells called osteoblasts that work mostly during the daytime. But come nighttime your bones are broken down by other cells called osteoclasts. They clear out old cells and make way for the new osteoblasts that come during the day.

Top 4 Bone-Building Supplements

By: | Posted in: Blog, Featured | Tuesday, Aug 22, 2017 - 8:56pm

When it comes to bones, I’m all about feeding my Skelly bone-building foods.

It’s always the first step in my bone health program.

You see, you can’t just pop a pill and keep poisoning your bones with bad food. But I do think that supplements can play an important role in boosting the nutrients that your bones need.

Maybe you don’t digest your food very well so you aren’t getting the nutrients your bones need. Or maybe you’re trying to eat right, but you’re not hitting your goals at every meal. I get that…

Now, I’m no expert on supplements. But I thought I’d share with you today the four supplements that I take to make sure my bones are getting the most important vitamins and minerals they need.

And before I get started, I’ll mention the one “bone” supplement that I DON’T take.

Go Nuts for Your Bones

Bone Loving Almonds

Nothing I like more than a handful of crunchy nuts for a snack. And Skelly’s with me on this.

You see, nuts are full of healthy fats, protein, and fiber that fill you up. But they are also a treasure box of minerals that build strong bones.

Maybe you have a favorite nut that you keep on hand. But I want you to think about rotating your nuts or eating lots of mixed nuts. That’s because each type of nut offers something special for your bones. If you stick to just one you’re missing out.

Here are the nuts I like best and what they do for your bones:

Salt: Deadliest Ingredient In Your Pantry?

By: | Posted in: Blog, Featured | Tuesday, Mar 28, 2017 - 6:15pm

Salt has been called the “single deadliest ingredient in the food supply.” But science doesn’t back up the claim.  In fact, it is essential for good health especially for menopausal women.

According to the Center for Science in the Public Interest, salt is so closely related to heart attack and stroke that if we just cut its use in half, we could save 150,000 lives each year.  They claim it’s the “single deadliest ingredient in the food supply.”

Others consider it essential to human life and even a superfood.

Which is it?

Strontium Is No Quick Fix For Your Bones

By: | Posted in: Blog, Featured | Wednesday, Dec 21, 2016 - 5:11pm

 

A lot of people are excited about a new “magic pill” for bones. But my Skelly is a little skeptical. I’m talking about strontium.

Most people have never heard of this mineral.   It’s named after Strontian, a village in Scotland where it was discovered in 1790. Today it’s used mostly in industry.

Calcium Supplements: A Deadly Mistake?

By: | Posted in: Blog, Featured | Tuesday, Nov 1, 2016 - 1:06am

 

What’s the number one supplement you need for your bones?

Most people I talk to will say calcium, of course. In fact, more than half of women over 60 take calcium supplements. I get it. They don’t want to break a bone. And they don’t want to have osteoporosis.

But instead of getting harder bones, they may be getting hardened arteries.
