Episode 179: Protecting Your Bones
with Margie Bissinger, MS, PT, CHC
Bone health can be one of those things that we overlook or figure we can put off worrying about until we’re older. Margie Bissinger joins this conversation to share why it’s actually something that everyone at every age should be working on.
In a really interesting congruency with Chinese Medicine, Margie’s research and experience illustrates just how interwoven our bone health is with all kinds of other parts of our lives, even as far as our happiness. Taking care of our bones early on in our life can help us to align with being powerful and feel like the victor rather than the victim as we work with other aspects of our health.
