"How could this be?"
I eat right.
You’re feeling a bit blindsided.
Because you pride yourself on being well-informed.
Maybe you’ve tried all that you’ve been told to do:
Take your calcium, vitamin D3, vitamin k2 and magnesium supplements.
Yet there is that darn diagnosis....
And this diagnosis is bringing on anxiety and doubt.
Feelings of isolation with all the decisions that are before you.
You know that food is an important component
But you don't like to cook.
Or you feel intimidated and not organized in the kitchen.
Your food budget is tight.
You question if eating organic is necessary.
You live alone and don’t like cooking for one.
Or your husband has a different palate than your bones need.
…..And you just don’t know which foods have calcium.
I know these feelings.
I felt the same way when I was diagnosed with osteopenia in 2005.
Overwhelmed and extremely isolated.
There is hope.
What if instead you….
Knew exactly what to reach for at the grocery store for easy bone-building meals….
Foods that support your bones with every bite you take…
Your husband and children compliment you on how delicious dinner is….
You feel empowered and confident.
Let me introduce myself.
I'm Irma Jennings, Holistic Bone Coach
I Wanted Help with
A Non-Traditional Approach
I joined the bones tribe to help in healing my osteoporosis with a more non traditional approach. I wanted to take a more active role in helping my bones get stronger. What I found in being a part of Irma's tribe is mind, body & spirit support, treating the WHOLE person. I can't say enough good things about Irma and her commitment to her tribe and our bones.
Irma does the research and is on top of the latest ways to heal. She brings them back to the group, were we can make informed decisions for healing our bones. She respects everyone individuality, has intuitive listening skills and in a gentle, supportive way helps me figure out my best choices to heal. I LOVE my bones tribe and Irma.

Wonderful Resource Answering Questions Beyond Nutrition
While Irma’s expertise and focus with Bone Tribe members is that of nutrition for good bone health, I’ve also found her to be a wonderful resource in response to the many questions that arise from group coaching calls and posts made by members to the Bones Tribe Facebook page. I appreciate Irma’s knowledgeable guidance.
That she does it with wit and compassion.

"My very good friend, Irma Jennings, went from the board room on Wall Street to the cutting board in her kitchen. Irma and I met because of our love of bones. The reason I love what she does is because she is teaching people the heart of bone health - teaching us how to feed our bones.

What is on the end of our fork has become one of the most empowering medicines of our time. Hippocrates was so wise when he said, "let food be your medicine, and medicine be your food.

Bones Tribe Helps Minimize The Isolation
Hearing from Irma on a regular basis, getting her feedback, suggestions and encouragement is helping me to make subtle changes for my bone health.
Also being part of the Bones Tribe helps to minimize the isolation I have felt having osteoporosis.

I Was Scared and Did Not Want To Take Bone Meds
Two years ago, I was diagnosed with borderline osteoporosis with a T score of -2.5.
I was scared and did not want to take bone meds.
I consulted Holistic Bone Coach Irma Jennings and she put me on the right track.
I joined her Bones Tribe and my osteoporosis education continued. Through Irma, I consulted with Dr. Keith McCormack and Dr. Lani Simpson.
I took Dr. McCormack’s Osteo Naturals supplements, followed a bone healthy diet, and weight trained. Now two years later, my recent Dexa scan showed that I have maintained rather than lost bone and that is huge. Irma Jennings and her Bones Tribe provided me with invaluable information.
Thank you, Irma.
Referring Bone Doctors
Bones Tribe Member, Shelly, challenged by continued and severe bone loss has this to say:
After reading Dr. McCormick’s book a year prior she was thrilled to learn he was doing a zoom call on supplementing and osteoporosis with Irma. Immediately after the call, Shelly realized how important it would be to her treatment to have a one on one with Dr. McCormick.
During their session, he concurred the current thought that she had a parathyroid tumor and suggested she go down to the Norman Clinic. Up to that point, although her endocrinologist felt strongly she had hyperparathyroidism, NYC surgeons did not.
One month later, she had two tumors removed and looks forward to restoring her health with the help of her doctors, including Dr. McCormick and the support of the Bones Tribe.

About Irma Jennings by Dr. Keith McCormick
As the founder of Food For Healthy Bones Irma is a great resource for anyone in need of help in designing and sticking to a bone-healthy diet. Irma is one of those bright (literally!) stars in our field. An x-Wall Street heavy, Irma had an epiphany one day and got out of Dodge (NY City) in search of healthier ways. Her story is both endearing and up-lifting...and one that I would like to share with you.
When Irma joined her son's 5th grade class for a week-long stay on an organic biodynamic farm, she was struck by the peace and harmony of the early morning farm routines. She says, "It was as though farmers and animals were in a timeless dance of joy." Many of us have important events that change the directions of our lives and this day certainly interjected an abrupt 90 degree turn in hers.
"It was an ah-ha moment for me," she says. "It gave me a deep belief in the power of Nature's rhythms and food to affect your body, mind, and spirit. Now I know that food is more than just fuel. What you put in your mouth becomes your bones, your blood, and your brain."
Shortly after "seeing the light" as the barn doors (metaphorically speaking) opened, Irma split Wall Street and began studies at the Institute For Integrative Nutrition. And when she was diagnosed with osteopenia she knew she wasn't interested in the script her doctor handed her but instead wanted to use food as her medicine. Her diagnosis prompted Irma to establish Food For Healthy Bones where she offers an "Optimal Bone Health Program" of 5 modules including the importance of good digestion, optimal foods, bone healthy recipes, and more about Food for Healthy bones.
Irma blogs monthly to her community of 4,500 readers.
