Hi Pam, Just to let you know, I have been wearing the weight vest since the day I got it and I love it. I started with 4 lbs. and up to 10lbs. now.
Along with taking a small dosage of strontium and calcium, eating lots of vegetables & fruits and excercise which consist of an 8lb medicine ball, walking, floor excercise and wearing the weight vest for 1 hr every morning for 5 days a week, I have gained 4.2% density in my spine. I was a hair away from having osteoporosis.
My results showed a mild case of osteopenia in my spine and my hip was normal. I was so excited about my results, I have been beyond myself. My doctor says he wants to repeat the test in 2 years and for me to continue what I am doing. I have had a bone density test for the last 7 years every year as I have been losing density.
I am 66 years old, small weighing 110 lbs and have been told by my physician because of my age and size my bones would not absorb calcium. I told him I was not willing to accept that and I would go the alternative way and through prayer and faith in God, he has been proven wrong. No matter what size or how old a person is, it can be reversed and without Fosamax, Boniva or any of those chemicals. I tried them all and could not take them. This is a more natural and healthier way which I love.
Thank you so much for sharing your research about osteoporosis. Name on file
