Susan Raphael - Olympia, WA
Hi, my name is Susan and I'm 71, I first became aware of my worsening bone density about 12 years ago.
I undoubtedly inherited this condition from my mother, who was taking medication and still suffered two fractures in her vertebrae. I've always been good about taking my calcium, and vitamin D3, and vitamin K2, and doing my exercises. I even included prunes every day, since the research says that they help bone strength because of their boron. I eat a lot of vegetables and fruit, and I drink milk every day. None of what I was doing seemed to be making much of a positive difference for me. I was even more skeptical about calcium supplements after the reports of clogged arteries a couple of years ago. Calcium from ground-up limestone or seashells never made a whole lot of sense to me either. How was my body gonna do anything productive with that? But I kept taking it since I didn't see any alternative. After five worsening bone scans over the past decade, I was getting very discouraged and quite worried. And then I came across AlgaeCal on the internet. The fact that there is supporting research convinced me that I had found what I was looking for. That was in June of 2018, one month after a bone scan had left me in tears. I've faithfully taken AlgaeCal and Strontium Boost since then.
I bought my doctor a copy of "My Bones" and she was happy to order a follow-up scan for me after only 15 months, at Kaiser the norm is two years. A couple of weeks later, she was super happy to email me my improved T-scores. I'm so happy and so relieved by my progress. My T-score on my lumbar spine went from -3.3 to -2.3. My femoral neck's T-score went from -2.7 to -2.3, and my left hip went from -2.5 to -2.4. I know that this is just the beginning of my improved bone health, and I'm beyond happy about how this is going. Now I take every opportunity I can to tell anybody who might need the information about AlgaeCal. It's a wonderful product and I think it'll be helpful for you.
Thank you for listening, bye-bye.
