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.
Treating the WHOLE person
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 in Response to My Many Questions
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 my 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 is icing on the cake.
Lynn Hughes, OR
"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.

"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.

Make Subtle Changes For My Bone Health
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 a group helps to minimize the isolation I have felt having osteoporosis.
Maureen Romano, PA.
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 the Bones Tribe. 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
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.
By Dr. Keith McCormick
"I have been learning from Irma for many years. She first taught me what it meant to cook organic, clean, healthy foods with recipes that were a snap to create. I have been following her as she has developed her Calcium program and I am thrilled to be taking care of myself in a more holistic way."
Jenny Griffith, RN - MA
"I knew of Irma's Optimal Bone Health Program for a few years but I always managed to convince myself that I was too busy and I couldn't possibly find the time. Do yourself a favor and don't postpone it, or at least not as long as I did!
Irma's classes gently proposed small changes to my life-style and added knowledge one little piece at a time. They effortlessly introduced new healthy habits to my life that also positively affected my family."
Ivan Pelligrin, IBM Business Partner, InfoSpere Specialist, Brussels, Belgium
"Irma's Bone Health I learned so much simple and straight-forward, helpful advice about bone health. I will definitely be taking more classes with Irma!"
Susanne Karch, Owner, Estate Services, CA
"Irma continues to educate in accessible and stimulating ways."
Toni Elizabeth Kurasch, RN, NYC, NY
"I completed the "Optimal Bone Health" program with Holistic Bone Coach Irma Jennings and found it to be enormously enriching. I have been engaged in my own process of reversing osteoporosis for some time and Irma's program was a very help next step. Irma present in a clear and thorough manner, blending her extensive knowledge of the benefits and how-to's of whole foods with a friendly and engaging manner. As we say in Australia Irma is 'the real deal' and I would certainly highly recommend her program to anyone who is serious about building healthy bones."
Persia Wildwood, Musician and Astrologist, Australia
"What we eat has as much a greater influence on how we are in the world than most of us realize. Irma has a way of inviting focus on this that engages the mind, body and even the spirit. Until I started working with her, I never thought I could get so much joy from integrating food into my life and into my bones."
Steven Skyles-Mulligan, Executive Director, Evoke Strategies, NYC, NY
"Irma's clients learn simply but profound ways to do a much better job of feeding and caring for themselves in an overarching way. She approaches each client with flexibility, kindness, concerns and a knowledge of alternative methods to foster optimum health. When I faced my diagnosis of arthritis and osteopenia and felt unsure how to proceed, I found Irma's guidance to be of enormous help."
Milly Dawson, Journalist/Author, FL
"Irma cleaned up my diet, eliminating processed/diet foods, soda, and added many more healthy foods to my family's diet and to mine while potentially building my bones. Four years later, those changes are now ingrained habits! We have two greens every night at dinner with a variety of whole grains and we continue to have a trans fat-free household. These were excellent changes that Irma encouraged me to make through her skills of listening, empathy, acceptance and friendly accountability, making her the ideal 'coach'!"
Nan Huson, Personal Trainer, NYC
"I have taken classes with Irma in the past, and I know she always exceeds my expectations, so I am open to what other wonderful results are created that I haven't imagined yet. My past experiences with Irma are what brought me here; learning about bone health. And I really trust that whatever Irma has to teach will be beneficial to me."
Susanne Miller, Masters in Public Health, Licensed Massage Therapist
"I am most pleased to recommend Irma Jennings. I participated in her nutritional bone health tele-class and found the session informative, inspiring and helpful in moving me forward to make healthier choices. Irma is grounded in her knowledge of nutrition and people skills-presenting information in understandable dialogue."
Diana Salter, Owner, Griffin Asset Management, NYC
"Irma Jennings is one of the those rare professionals who has traveled from Wall Street's boardrooms to the cutting board of the kitchen. Having worked with her on a number of projects, I've experienced her passion for whole foods and wholesome living. She offers clients, both men and women, individually and in groups, her expertise and a wide range of knowledge, fostering a new relationship to their health and wellness, with a special focus on bone health and osteoporosis prevention. A natural teacher, she writes an informative newsletter presenting a handful of useful ideas to chew on and assimilate. If you want to learn more about health and the joy of food, you'd do well to consult with Irma."
