Holly Dean - Glen Allen, Virginia
Hi, my name is Holly Dean. I'm 67 years old.
And I've been on AlgaeCal for possibly, I think around two and a half, going on three years. I began taking AlgaeCal when I got a bone density test that showed that my bone density was in a range of about, or well exactly negative 2.6. So in my situation, it was further complicated by a fluctuating thyroid which was going from hyperthyroidism to hypothyroidism. But luckily, that's all under control with medication now. So that's normal. But once I got that bone density test. So I called my good friend Carol Wood who was a member of this community, and very successful with AlgaeCal, and she was nice enough to sit down and show me everything she's been doing with AlgaeCal, as well as supplements that she's taking, and her lifestyle, eating, all of that. But she really stressed you need to find what works for you. So I started doing lots of research. I joined the AlgaeCal community. I started asking lots of questions and I really found out, figured out what works for me. So it's really about four things. Number one, I make sure I take my AlgaeCal Plus, my Strontium Boost, and my Triple Power religiously and daily. Secondly, I'm taking very high quality supplements, a very good multivitamin, one recommended by Lara, as well as other really good quality supplements. Thirdly, I really changed to a almost completely organic, plant-based diet. I do eat fish, but I eat a lot of vegetables, and I make sure I get the adequate amount of protein everyday, as well as calcium. And the fourth thing I did was I stepped up my exercise. I do weight-bearing exercises. I do Pilates and Barre online, little online classes. And I walk two miles a day and with my FitBit tracker, I make sure I get at least close to 10,000 steps a day. So I was very happy to see results from doing all those four things. My results now, my femoral neck of my hip went from -1.9 to a -1.3. My spine went from a -1.1 to a -0.3, which is in the normal range. And my total overall T-score went from a -2.6 to a -2.0. So I'm thrilled with the results. I plan on staying on the AlgaeCal program for life, at least the AlgaeCal Plus and the Triple Power. And I'll probably be able to cut back on Strontium as soon as my numbers are completely in the normal range. So I hope that works for you. Or I hope you find what works for you. This is what works for me and I hope it helps, thanks.
