Lynn Hummel underwent a routine bone density screening when she was 51 and received distressing news: Her bone density was lower than normal, enough to indicate a symptomless condition called osteopenia.
Osteopenia is a risk factor for later developing a dangerous disease called osteoporosis – when bones become more fragile and prone to fractures.
“My doctor said I really needed to do something to improve my bone density and wanted to put me on FOSAMAX®,” she shares. “I told them, I don’t want drugs.”
Lynn has a family history of osteoporosis and didn’t want her bones to continue to weaken. Although she resisted taking medication often prescribed for osteopenia and osteoporosis, she decided to take action in another way.
She enrolled in a revolutionary program called OsteoStrong that helps build bone through once-a-week sessions on specialized equipment. The sessions take less than fifteen minutes, and Lynn fit them into her lunch hours on Fridays.
Six months later, Lynn returned to her doctor for a repeat bone density screening. This time, the test showed results that were dramatically different from her first screening.
Lynn was amazed at the increase in her bone density.
“My bone density had gone up ten percent!” she exclaims. “They couldn’t believe the difference.”
Bones are made of tissue that is constantly broken down and replaced. But when new bone creation does not keep up with degeneration, osteopenia and osteoporosis can occur.
“Osteoporosis is a silent disease that most people are unaware they have until they fracture a bone,” educates Stacie Brower, owner of OsteoStrong Chardon and Bainbridge. “It’s caused by bone loss.”
Statistically, one in two women and one in four men over age fifty will have an osteoporosis-related fracture in their lifetime.
People who have osteoporosis can reverse the harmful effects of the disease.
“We utilize a concept called osteogenic loading, a fifteen-minute, once-a-week, resistance-based session that increases bone density, prevents fractures, strengthens muscle tissue and improves balance.”
OsteoStrong, an effective, natural solution for all age groups, ranging from age 8 up to 97.
“The machine we use applies pressure through short, acute activities that stimulate the body’s natural impulse to rebuild bone and tissue loss. This amazing concept culminated after twelve years of research.”
Sessions are deliberately scheduled once a week.
“Unlike most things you hear about in life where more is better, that’s not the case at OsteoStrong,” explains Stacie. “Empirical testing and hundreds of case studies found that doing an OsteoStrong session more than once a week doesn’t promote any additional improvement. The body simply cannot respond any faster.”
It takes only about ten minutes to complete a session but in that period of time, a response occurs that is nothing short of amazing. And the best part is that it’s completely measurable.
“On average, studies found that OsteoStrong over the course of a year, improved people’s bone density by about fourteen percent and their strength by about seventy-three percent, ” Stacie said.
The effects of OsteoStrong for increasing strength and balance can improve daily physical functioning, help prevent falls and enhance quality of life.
Positive Effects of OsteoStrong Sessions
“After a little while, I realized, Oh man, I don’t hurt like I used to. My knees stopped hurting like they usually did.”
“My balance improved – I’ve not always had a good center of balance, and I could really tell the difference – and my strength went up dramatically.”
“The difference OsteoStrong sessions made for me was amazing. I’ve stayed away from developing osteoporosis, and I’d really like to keep it that way.”
“In addition to improving my bone density, I noticed aches and pains that were part of her life seemed to disappear.”
“Most of all, I appreciates how OsteoStrong helped increase my bone density – without having to take any medication.”
