Molly Kurland - Santa Rosa, California
Hi, I'm Molly. And I'm really happy to be part of the AlgaeCal community.
I first had a bone scan when I was in my fifties, and I was studying medical imaging, and I was learning how to do bone scans. So just for fun, I had one done to see what my bones were like. And it came back that I had great bones. My doctor said you have the bones of a 30 year old. So I was very happy and I felt strong. And therefore I was very surprised when I turned 65 and had another bone density scan, and it came back that I had some bone issues, that I had some deterioration in my bones. That really surprised me because I live a very healthy lifestyle. I'm a massage therapist, which means that I work on my feet, so that's weight-bearing activity. And I also go for long walks every day, just for my health and metabolism and good state of mind but that's also more a weight-bearing activity. So the only thing that I could come up with was I had been taking an anti-acid, and, when I was doing research, I learned that anti-acids cause you to not absorb minerals like calcium. So even though I was taking calcium, I may not have been absorbing it. And I was taking the anti-acid for a cough, from a tickle in my throat that the doctor thought was reflux, but I really didn't have reflux, and my cough never went away. So I just stopped taking the anti-acids. I also learned about AlgaeCal while I was doing the research, and I decided to try it because everything I read about it made a lot of sense. So I started taking the AlgaeCal, and I was invited to join their Facebook community which I did, which was great, because lots of people ask questions and there's a lot you can learn just by reading the discussions. So that was really helpful. And they also send you bone healthy recipes in email, and lots of good tips for exercise, and different things you can do to stay strong. So that's what I did. I just practiced all these good things for two years. Two years seem like a really long time to wait, but then finally three days ago I got another bone scan and boom, my bones had improved a great deal. All of this had worked, and I am thrilled. I am so happy to have found this product, and to have found this wonderful community of people that are so supportive.
So I'm very grateful. Thank you.
