I also continue to fill my diet with calcium rich foods and trace minerals that nourish and battle the bone density loss. It is with much joy that I say my recent bone scan showed only 6/10ths of a percent of bone loss in one hip, with no change in the other and a 1/10th INCREASE, yes, I said increase, in the lumbar spine. This is a long way from the 2.6 percent of loss that showed just a year before. I am not claiming victory, but I am more inspired than ever to keep on course.
I do not consume any type of synthetic or prescribed medication at this time. I opted for my own self care and take in hydroxyappatite (natures purest calcium) along with a daily regimen of minerals and vitamins. No, I don't have handfuls of pills to choke down, the vitamins are not so overwhelming that they ever fill a handful. Even if they did, I would still make it happen.
It's about my future, my daughters future and my quality of life. I plan on riding and performing for years to come and vow to never be a burden to anyone, especially those I love the most.
