Every woman worries about becoming old and frail, has shuddered to think they might experience that fall that changes everything when we break a hip.
The way conventional wisdom says we should measure bone density is with a Dexa scan. And yes we should all get them at 50 for a baseline. But there's a new test in town and my guest Irma Jennings is going to tell you what it is and what it does.

What else contributes to bone health? Irma and I talk food, community, tooth and gum health, and lots of what Irma teaches her clients and those in her bone health community.
