I’m right here with Kevin Ellis who’s often called the Bone Coach. And he’s an authorized integrative diet coach, a podcaster, YouTuber, bone well being advocate, and the founding father of


And his story started with an osteoporosis identified in his early 30s. And this started a journey for him of each his personal therapeutic and serving to plenty of different individuals as effectively. And immediately, he’s not solely reworked his personal well being, however he’s devoted his life to serving to others with the identical drawback.

The highest issues we are able to do for our children to assist them truly attain their peak bone mass round age 30.


Extra causes to keep away from extra sugar consumption, the best way issues like fluoride and environmental chemical substances can have an effect on bone well being, the precise vitamins that you just want on your bones. They go far past simply calcium and vitamin D. The universally helpful and dangerous meals for the bones, and far, rather more. Even when that is one thing that you just don’t assume you’ve a possible problem with, there’s plenty of actually nice preventative recommendation in right here. And to his level, you would possibly truly be stunned to know that you’ve got among the danger components, and that early scans can assist you avoiding any precise issues. So I discovered lots. And with none additional delay, let’s leap in. Kevin, welcome. Thanks for being right here.


Kevin: Hey, thanks, Katie, for having me. Tremendous nice to be right here.


Katie: I’m excited to speak with you and we’re gonna speak all issues bone well being, which you’re an knowledgeable in, however earlier than we do, I’ve a observe in my present notes that you’ve got a purpose to mentor one million children who don’t have good function fashions. And I might simply love to listen to among the cause for the motivation behind that.



Kevin: Yeah. For me, you understand, after I was a younger child…my father handed away after I was tremendous younger, after I was about two months outdated and, you understand, had a dramatic affect on my life. I grew up, I had an abusive stepfather you understand, some irritating challenges in my childhood and I by no means actually had a father determine that I may look to that I felt like was instructing me the values, the teachings, the morals, all of the issues like that, that I actually needed to have and really feel after I was a child. And, you understand, as I received older, I spotted there are plenty of children, you understand, going via that now. And that’s type of one thing that I wish to be a mentor, anyone who can train them the values, how will you be sort contributing member to society from a extremely younger age? And ultimately, I’d like to get that to the purpose the place, you understand, these children may have an internship or one thing like that in a purpose-driven group like ours.


Katie: That’s stunning. I feel we positively want extra of that. And, sadly, that is, such as you mentioned, one thing that impacts plenty of children and I feel assets like which might be gonna be so useful sooner or later for…and I feel that creates ripples as effectively. Like, while you assist a toddler at a younger age, it creates ripples for future generations. And that’s a lot the identical cause I’ve at all times cherished working with mothers as a result of I really feel like if I can assist mothers, then that creates ripples for his or her children and for generations past that as effectively.


Kevin: Completely.


Katie: Properly, I do know that you just’re additionally an knowledgeable in all issues bone well being, and it looks as if this got here from a spot of type of private expertise for you as effectively. I’ve usually heard from individuals on this podcast and myself as effectively, plenty of us get into the well being and wellness world making an attempt to unravel our personal issues. So I might love to begin broad and listen to the story of how you bought began on this journey within the first place.


Kevin: Yeah. And a part of that, you understand, begins with my father’s passing. You understand, he handed away when he was 35, at a extremely younger age, and my complete life, I had this concern that I used to be gonna comply with in his footsteps to an early grave and never have the chance to look at my children develop up and expertise the fun of being a father. And after I was identified with osteoporosis at 31 at a time after I nonetheless had all these different well being points to resolve, I assumed my destiny was destined to be the identical. You understand, I had a younger daughter, son in the best way, I used to be devastated. And I bear in mind the day the physician sat down with me and confirmed that I had osteoporosis, and it wasn’t similar to a letter within the mail, like truly sat down with me and her precise phrases had been, “That is going to be a problem for you.” Bone medication and fracture had been my future. And I walked out of that workplace afraid.


And for the individuals who know me effectively, they know I’m usually not essentially the most emotional individual, and there are only a few issues which might be gonna strike concern in my coronary heart, however that did it. And after I received dwelling that night time, I used to be laying on the sofa throughout my spouse. My daughter was upstairs sleeping and I regarded up, I noticed my favourite image of her on the wall. She was slightly over 1-year-old sporting this cute polka dot gown standing in entrance of a white picket fence, blonde hair, blue eyes, harmless and candy as might be. And I simply broke down crying. And I cried arduous. It was the type to cry that empties the sum of life’s burdens. And after I used to be completed, I regarded over at my spouse and mentioned, “I simply wanna dance with my daughter on her wedding ceremony day.” She wanted her daddy and I questioned whether or not I’d even be alive to be there for. And for these first couple of days and weeks, I used to be offended, upset, overwhelmed. I used to be scared. I had no concept the place to begin. I simply needed to know all the things was gonna be okay and the way I used to be gonna even work out how one can enhance my well being and my bones.


And after an excessive amount of studying, analysis, working with docs, consulting with individuals, my mindset began to shift. And as soon as I received to the purpose the place I began making use of the issues I had been studying, was truly making enhancements in my well being and my bones, that’s after I realized simply how difficult it may be for the common individual, principally the common girl who’s identified with osteopenia and osteoporosis, usually not, you understand, the younger man, to determine what they should do to handle bone loss, construct bone energy, and stop fracture. As a result of the prescription for 90% of girls who’re identified is calcium, vitamin D, strolling, and a bone drug, and that’s woefully insufficient. And it’s actually that cause why I began BoneCoach and


Katie: And that in all probability needed to be fairly the shock so that you can be 31, and such as you mentioned, a man, which isn’t the traditional danger demographic and possibly in excellent well being. I learn that you just had been a Marine earlier than that, it wasn’t from lack of motion. It wasn’t from…you understand, such as you had been doing plenty of the issues that ought to have doubtlessly not put you in danger. In order that needed to be fairly a shock to search out out. And I’m curious at that age, like how do you know that you just had it and the way would another person who perhaps has the early danger components know that they could have it as effectively?


Kevin: Yeah. So for me, though, you understand, being a Marine, realizing how one can work out, being bodily energetic, all these sorts of issues, I had that. And I had a basis of weightlifting and issues like that after I was youthful, however on the identical time, I had celiac illness, malabsorption of vitamins for a lot of, a few years. A slew of digestive points, low vitality, poor sleep. You understand, I clearly in all probability wasn’t absorbing my vitamins. There have been simply plenty of various things. Whereas I used to be within the Marines, I smoked for 5 years. You understand, there was some consuming and issues like that that took half throughout that point too. All this stuff can contribute and work towards us. Sometimes, you’re not gonna be getting a DEXA scan, a bone density scan, and we’ll speak about these in a minute while you’re youthful. However for me, as a result of I had celiac illness, that’s one of many issues that we ended up pushing for. And we initially thought I used to be simply gonna be checking the field, however turned out…came upon we had osteoporosis. In order that was type of an entire shock for me at the moment.


Katie: Gotcha. In order that was the impetus for you, like entering into and getting examined at that time was…


Kevin: Yep. Yep. Completely.


Katie: And so I’m assuming these are all additionally then danger components. If somebody already has celiac illness or actually have some type of intestine dysbiosis, that may be a possible danger issue for bone points.


Kevin: They completely can. They completely might be danger components for that. And by way of like…I didn’t even know after I was identified what osteoporosis was. So osteoporosis actually means porous bone. It’s characterised by both not sufficient bone formation, extreme bone loss, or a mixture of all. In osteoporosis, each your bone density and your bone high quality are decreased, and that’s gonna improve your danger of fracture. And I had simply talked about a bone density scan. In order that’s type of the gold normal of discovering out how you’ve osteoporosis is the dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry. It’s a painless check, type of like an X-ray, however very low ranges of radiation. You lay down on a machine, the machine does a scan. It tells you your bone mineral density, the precise mineral content material of your bone. After which it generates a rating. And the rating is named a T-score. And a T-score is telling you the way a lot your bone mass differs from the bone mass of a mean wholesome 30-year-old grownup.


So a rating of zero means your bone density is the same as the norm for a wholesome younger grownup. Rating plus one, minus one, thought of regular and wholesome, however a T-score of between adverse one and adverse 2.5, that signifies you’ve low bone mass, oftentimes referred to as osteopenia, which is sort of a precursor to osteoporosis. After which a T-score of adverse 2.5 or decrease signifies you’ve osteoporosis. The higher that adverse quantity is, so adverse 2.5, adverse 2.6, adverse 2.7, the extra extreme the osteoporosis. Most girls are getting these scans completed by the point they’re of their 50s and 60s as a examine within the field. Their docs are gonna organize them, however that’s too late for my part. If you happen to haven’t had one but, and also you’re in your 30s, your 40s, your 50s, go get one. It’s a good suggestion to get a baseline. And we don’t wanna keep away from doing one thing too simply because the reply is probably not one thing we don’t wanna hear, proper? You’ll be able to’t handle one thing additionally till you’re conscious of it. In order that’s a extremely necessary observe there that I prefer to make is let’s be on the facet of prevention, get a baseline. And that method, we don’t essentially simply react afterward in life.


Katie: Yeah. That’s an ideal level. I bear in mind discovering out after I first came upon I had Hashimotos and it was in some methods a reduction as a result of at the least then I knew and I may begin addressing it. And also you’re proper, I don’t assume lots of people assume to get that. I haven’t ever gotten a DEXA scan and I’m in my 30s. However it is smart, and I do know there’s plenty of different info that may come from that as effectively. So it looks as if an ideal baseline check. I’m guessing it’s multifactorial, however what do we predict causes osteopenia or osteoporosis?


Kevin: Nice query. And I attempt to get individuals to consider imagining their physique as like a…think about you’ve a bucket of water, okay? The bucket represents your physique. The water throughout the bucket represents your bone mineral density, the measure of how a lot bone you’ve. And picture that bucket has a small gap in it with a really tiny leak. And over time, over years and years, that water stage will get decrease and decrease and decrease till at some point you go get that bone density scan, you understand your water is low. You will have osteopenia and osteoporosis. And also you’re shocked. I assumed my bucket was stuffed with water. And normally, the explanations are as a result of both you’ve a bunch of well being points like I did, and that’s what led you to go get a DEXA scan otherwise you’re on the other finish of the spectrum.


You’re employed out, you assume you’re maintaining a healthy diet, you’re doing all the things proper, you get a DEXA scan as a examine within the field, you discover out you’ve osteoporosis. In both of these situations, you’ve this response of how do I repair this proper now? And typically individuals make fast drastic choices, together with taking a bone drug usually influenced by our docs to instantly plug the opening and fill our buckets again up with water. And we do that earlier than figuring out the place the opening is, what prompted it, or if there was even a gap within the first place as a result of your bucket could not have ever been stuffed with water to start with. So let’s speak concerning the first one. Is there a gap in your bucket? Are you actively shedding bone? A single bone density scan won’t inform you that. And you want to know the reply to that earlier than you make different choices as a result of one thing might be inflicting that loss, might be a number of issues.


So the check we wanna use right here is named a serum CTX check or a CT low PET sort check. This can be a bone turnover marker check, and it’s trying on the stage of bone breakdown that’s happening within the physique, okay? It’s measuring these collagen bone protein fragments. If that stage is elevated or actually excessive, that may be an indicator of energetic bone loss. In order that’s one of many methods to inform in between DEXA scans if you happen to’re nonetheless actively shedding bone. Then the query turns into, what prompted the opening? And that is main extra into your query of what contributes or may have contributed to the bone loss and osteoporosis. And lots of people don’t know this, however there are a number of varieties of osteoporosis. There’s major osteoporosis, which is usually associated to a lower in estrogen in post-menopausal girls.


Estrogen has a protecting impact on bone. When estrogen ranges lower as they do throughout menopause, it’s gonna trigger a rise within the exercise stage of cells that break down bone. However then there’s a complete different reason behind osteoporosis. That’s secondary osteoporosis. This can be a class I fell into. And that is the place osteoporosis happens because of, you understand, behaviors, circumstances, ailments, problems, drugs, number of these various things. Most people who find themselves unexpectedly identified of their 30s, or 40s, or 50s and 60s, they’ve or had a secondary trigger, okay? And that’s what we’ve to go and discover and work out. After which the final half is, and that is necessary for youths, too. Did you simply not begin with a full bucket? Did you simply not obtain peak bone mass? As a result of what’s necessary to remember, if you’re identified with osteoporosis, it doesn’t mechanically imply that you just’re actively shedding bone. Chances are you’ll simply not have constructed up sufficient bone in your youthful years.


As much as 90% of your bone mass is acquired by age 18, and it peaks by the point you flip 30. So by the point you flip 30, your bucket is about as full because it’s going to be. So if while you’re youthful you had an consuming dysfunction, poor diet, low calcium and vitamin D consumption, if you happen to smoked or drank excessively, if you happen to led a sedentary life-style, or if you happen to took sure drugs, these all may have prevented you from attaining peak bone mass and beginning with a full bucket.


Katie: So many instructions to go from there. I feel the primary being in order mother and father, what can we concentrate on to verify hopefully our children do attain that full bone mass from an early age? Like, what are the components we wanna be actually cautious about?


Kevin: Yeah. Particularly with younger children, too, get them energetic, get them outside taking part in, get them taking part in sports activities. Any of these actions after they’re youthful which might be gonna shock their bones. We wish to, you understand, soccer, bone density within the legs of soccer gamers is normally nice as a result of it’s multidirectional. They’re altering course actually fast. There are these quick, intense bouts after which they’re off. In order that’s nice. Resistance coaching is nice. Getting them energetic and strolling and shifting, all implausible. One factor I might say for youths, too, is sugar. We gotta take note of sugar, okay? We don’t wanna be consuming plenty of completely different sugar. Extreme sugar consumption may exacerbate vitamin D deficiency. Analysis have truly discovered {that a} excessive consumption of fructose is gonna improve the expression of an enzyme liable for degrading vitamin D. And that’s additionally going to lower the expression of an enzyme that helps synthesize vitamin D too.


So it’s gonna cut back our inside absorption of calcium. It’s gonna improve our urinary excretion of calcium and magnesium. These are necessary minerals for our bones. So it’s not simply, you understand, I do know we hear on a regular basis to not eat sugar and to not be giving our children a bunch of cookies and muffins and candies and all these issues, however there’s good cause for it too for the well being of our skeleton. So these are some necessary issues. Chemical compounds, taking note of chemical substances after we’re youthful, too. I might say, and I’m positive that is about the commonest recommendation on the market and one of many best low-hanging fruit that we are able to do is making an attempt to shift to consuming natural produce and issues like that as potential.


That method, we’re not getting issues like glyphosphate and, you understand, among the different damaging chemical substances and issues like that on the market. We don’t wanna be consuming these issues for our children. After which even your private care merchandise. To concentrate to the issues that you just’re utilizing there. You understand, I’ll even simply say, you understand, after I first began saying that you just had fluoride-free toothpaste and issues like that got here out, we jumped on that instantly like in our home. We had been utilizing another manufacturers and issues like that, however fluoride can truly not be the perfect factor long-term on your intestine well being, on your bone well being, particularly in case your children are swallowing that stuff long-term as an alternative of spitting it out within the sink, in all probability not gonna be the perfect factor there both. So these are some things from a child’s perspective too that I might think about incorporating.


Katie: After which for adults as effectively, you mentioned age 30 is type of while you’re optimally gonna hit your peak bone mass. And ideally that’s when it’s gonna be actually good. For individuals who perhaps get a DEXA scan or begin noticing a few of these signs and discover out their bone mass isn’t best and perhaps they’re of their 30s or 40s, I might assume from listening to your story that that doesn’t imply all is misplaced and a few of that injury can’t be undone. However what does that course of appear like, if somebody will get comparable information or simply finds out they might be or have a few of these danger components or type of on that path?


Kevin: Yeah, completely. So primary, no, it doesn’t imply you’re completely fragile, proper, if you happen to get a analysis of osteoporosis. And this doesn’t imply, you understand, it doesn’t matter what age you’re. You’ll be able to construct bone energy within the age, it simply turns into tougher. The older you get and the extra bone you lose, there are fewer cells concerned within the course of, that course of turns into much less environment friendly. So we wish individuals to wanna be on the facet of prevention and never response. So let’s say you discover this out, your 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s even, you’re nonetheless gonna comply with the identical course of. Step one needs to be you must establish and handle all these root trigger problems with bone loss and bone injury, proper? If there are issues working towards you actively, you must handle these issues first.


You gotta know what assessments you want to order and get completed. It’s a must to know how one can perceive your outcomes. You gotta be your personal finest advocate. And that is with any well being situation, not simply osteoporosis. You’ll be able to’t simply put all of your religion into one individual and count on them to do all the things for you, after which make it possible for that’s gonna get you your finest well being. You continue to should be type of guiding and directing that course of.


The second a part of that is nourish. It’s worthwhile to restore the uncooked supplies and vitamins that you just want for stronger, more healthy bones via weight-reduction plan, via digestion, via absorption. It’s worthwhile to be sure to have the best inputs to provide stronger outputs as a result of you possibly can’t rebuild one thing that’s not there, proper? And that’s gonna occur on three layers. Are you taking in the best vitamins in the correct amount? Are you truly absorbing these vitamins? If in case you have digestive points, these digestive points can truly be a supply of irritation that contributes to bone breakdown within the physique. After which are these vitamins truly making it to the cell stage?


And plenty of occasions, you understand, persons are simply informed, take your calcium, take your vitamin D, however there are different nutrient which might be necessary past simply that, magnesium. Magnesium is unbelievably necessary, not only for our bones, however for our total well being. One of many major capabilities of magnesium is that we want it to make proteins in our physique. So while you eat proteins in your weight-reduction plan, be it from animals, eggs, fish, dairy, beans, peas, brown rice, no matter, via the method of digestion, you break these proteins down. And as soon as we soak up these amino acids, we are able to then rebuild them in our our bodies into numerous proteins, however you want magnesium to do that. And nearly all the things within the physique is a protein or is made by proteins. You understand, bones are 50% protein by quantity.


One other necessary nutrient that’s usually neglected is vitamin Okay, okay? There are two varieties of vitamin Okay. Or, effectively, at the least for the sake of this dialog, let’s simply say Okay-1 and Okay-2. Okay-1 might be transformed to Okay-2, however not effectively. Okay-2 is what’s most necessary for bone well being. There are some main varieties, there’s MK-4, there’s MK-7. However vitamin Okay-2 is gonna help in bone mineralization. And that’s tremendous necessary too. So it’s extra than simply calcium and vitamin D. After which the final a part of that is…I might say the final a part of this course of could be construct. It’s worthwhile to construct energy, the physique energy, the thoughts energy, the bone, you want to cut back your stress, enhance your sleep, get an train plan in place that’s gonna enable you to truly construct bone energy, and do these issues in a method that’s gonna stop, you understand, fracture and damage and issues like that. In order that’s the excessive stage, and that’s just about the identical throughout the board for individuals irrespective of how outdated you’re.


Katie: Yeah. And it looks as if nice recommendation throughout the board, such as you mentioned, even for youths beginning at a younger age to verify they’ve these vitamins optimized and so they’re getting a different weight-reduction plan. It looks as if you’ve talked about the absorption piece a few occasions. And I feel that’s a factor that’s not talked about sufficient in trendy society just isn’t solely is our weight-reduction plan nutrient-depleted in comparison with what it was a few generations in the past, however we’re probably not absorbing issues practically as effectively due to the entire different issues which might be inputs in our our bodies and the chemical substances we’re uncovered to. It additionally looks as if there’s a very direct connection right here between bone loss and intestine points. So are you able to speak extra about that and type of what to pay attention to associated to intestine well being and if that may be a part of the issue?


Kevin: Completely, sure. Main connection between intestine well being and bone well being. So I do know I used to be speaking a few bucket earlier, however let’s neglect concerning the bucket for a second. Let’s simply say…you understand, we’re gonna use a very completely different metaphor. Consider our our bodies and our bones as being like crops. In an effort to develop, they want vitamins and the best circumstances, proper? So most individuals focus a lot on the vitamins, the salads, the smoothies, the dietary supplements that they fail to think about the soil. Our intestine is just like the soil. We soak up virtually all the things right here. So after we soak up meals or dietary supplements, we begin to break them down into smaller items in our mouth. That meals makes its method into our abdomen, the place it’s turned within the acidic combine to interrupt it down even additional. Then it makes its strategy to our small gut, our soil. And that is the place our vitamins are damaged right down to their smallest kind to be absorbed by us, the crops.


However with a purpose to soak up something, we want roots in our soil, proper? Our roots are referred to as villi. These tiny little hair-like projections cowl our small gut and are liable for absorbing vitamins. They soak up the vitamins from the meals you eat after which shuttle these vitamins into your bloodstream to allow them to journey to the place they’re wanted within the physique, whether or not that’s for therapeutic a lower in your hand, rising your hair or fingernails, or rebuilding stronger bones. The job of our roots, our villi, is so necessary that the overall floor space they use to soak up vitamins is the scale of a soccer area. How wonderful is that, proper? However when we’ve poor digestion and our intestine well being isn’t optimum, we are able to’t correctly break down our meals. And after we can’t correctly break down our meals, vitamins gained’t be accessible. And if vitamins aren’t accessible, the villi gained’t be capable of soak up them. And the physique gained’t have the uncooked supplies and assets wanted for stronger, more healthy bones.


So the place do we’ve to begin? What we have to begin with, are vitamins making it to your soil. If in case you have bloating, belching, burping, extreme fuel, even diarrhea after meals, otherwise you really feel like meals simply sits in your abdomen and stagnates for a very long time, there’s probability you’ve low abdomen acid. Age, stress, nutrient deficiencies, intestine infections are all contributors. And surprisingly, you understand, the most effective indicators of low abdomen acid is reflux, which is stunning, proper? And when individuals have reflux, what do they take for? The identical factor I took for numerous years, tums and proton pump inhibitors like Prilosec, Prevacid, Nexium, Omeprazole. Like most individuals who take PPIs, I mistakenly thought I had an excessive amount of abdomen acid and I ended up suppressing what little abdomen acid I did have.


And the explanation that’s an issue is as a result of we want abdomen acid to correctly break down and extract vitamins from our meals like amino acids, the constructing blocks of protein. I discussed earlier, our bones are 50% protein by quantity. They want amino acids. Calcium is the first mineral constituent of our bones. Low abdomen acid reduces its absorption. Magnesium, iron, B12, in case you have low abdomen acid, your soil will probably be starved of those vitamins and others. The subsequent query about, you understand, intestine well being, does your soil have the best steadiness of bugs? Different issues are gonna rise in case your soil has the incorrect steadiness of bugs, dysbiosis, the presence of unhealthy bugs, intestine infections, and even good bugs within the incorrect place, SIBO like small intestinal bacterial overgrowth. These bugs make up our microbiome.


When that is out of steadiness, it’s gonna negatively have an effect on your physique’s means to soak up vitamins and it’s gonna contribute to leaky intestine systemic irritation, each of that are unhealthy on your physique and your bones. So, once more, how have you learnt in case your bugs should not balanced? You would possibly expertise the bloating, the belching, the extreme fuel, the heartburn, the constipation, diarrhea, even fatigue. These can all be indicators. After which the final a part of the digestive well being image type of ties into one of many explanation why I developed osteoporosis, you understand, at a youthful age is there are a number of circumstances and ailments that have an effect on your physique’s means to soak up vitamins. So are your roots even working correctly? Celiac illness is one in every of them and it’s the first cause for my osteoporosis. How does that contribute to nutrient malabsorption bone loss? Whenever you ingest gluten, these villi, our roots turn out to be blunted to the purpose the place they’ll’t do their job.


And so for me, my roots successfully grew to become broken. My physique was starved with key bone-healthy vitamins like calcium, phosphorus, and vitamin D. These are normally absorbed slightly greater up within the small gut the place that injury is extra prone to happen. And this went on for years, had no concept calcium was being raked for my bones to serve different functions. And, you understand, there’s probability that that may be a contributing consider osteoporosis. So we want to verify if you’re nonetheless consuming gluten, you understand, the tTg-IgA is a good check to assist with that. After which additionally the overall serum IgA can be a useful check there too.


Katie: That’s tremendous useful. I used to be taking notes. And I’m curious how your bone well being is now after like occurring this journey and what your progress has regarded like.


Kevin: Yeah, completely. Been capable of make progress alongside the best way and enhancements alongside the best way. And, you understand, we took that, we took all the things that I had discovered, but it surely wasn’t simply me, it was principally taking the analysis and all of the issues and we made it actionable for different individuals now, too. That’s in all probability crucial factor is now we even have been capable of assist individuals in over 1,500 cities all over the world at this level placing a plan in place, strolling them via a three-step course of, and placing them in entrance of extremely credentialed group members and consultants that alongside my… In my very own journey, I spotted it’s actually arduous while you put all of your eggs into one individual. Generally you want to coordinate with plenty of completely different individuals. And that’s one of many issues we’ve capable of do is put individuals in entrance of all of the individuals that may assist them get solutions alongside the best way. So is admittedly one of many tougher elements of the journey.


Katie: And I’m glad you introduced up the magnesium connection too, as a result of that is one thing I’ve been speaking about for years and realizing it’s so depleted within the trendy weight-reduction plan and it’s wanted much more than we’re getting usually and infrequently there’s a spot for supplementation. I’m curious if you happen to can simply kinda stroll us via, I do know you even have this all as a full method on-line for individuals who really want to enter the main points, however simply type of an outline of what an optimum weight-reduction plan complement train plan would possibly appear like, perhaps even at completely different ages for bone well being?


Kevin: Yeah, completely. So you understand, let’s even simply begin with weight-reduction plan and diet as a starting place. Clearly, you understand, we wanna make certain we’re getting the best meals, the best vitamins. If we don’t have the issues there to assist us construct bone, we’re not truly gonna be capable of rebuild our bones and we’re not gonna be capable of stop bone loss. One thing I wanna level out although with weight-reduction plan and diet is each time you eat, you’ve the chance to present your physique all the things it must heal and rebuild itself. However it’s about much more than simply drink a bunch of milk and alkalize your physique with inexperienced greens. And folks ask me on a regular basis, what’s the right weight-reduction plan, and so they hate my response. It relies upon, proper? We’re all biochemically and genetically distinctive people. We reply to completely different meals and dietary approaches in a different way, which is why no dietary method could be thought of a inflexible framework with zero flexibility.


It’s additionally why while you see somebody saying, everybody ought to eat this particular superfood as a result of it’s assured to be good on your physique and your bones, make observe of it, however understand it may not be just right for you as a result of irrespective of how a lot of a superfood or well being meals somebody claims one thing is, or how nice they are saying it’s on your bones, if it creates irritation in your physique, it’s not a well being meals for you. And likewise the place you’re in your well being journey is gonna be one other necessary consideration. So if you happen to’re working to beat digestive points or bacterial overgrowth, candida, or put autoimmune illness in remission, your dietary method will differ considerably from those that should not. Basic rule of thumb, anti-inflammatory weight-reduction plan. You understand, if anyone doesn’t have plenty of completely different well being points and issues like that, place to begin may doubtlessly be a Mediterranean-ish-type method.


If anyone is coming in and so they’ve received, you understand, autoimmune circumstances and issues like that, we’re in all probability gonna at the least, you understand, begin them someplace round a paleo-type method or one thing like that. Paleo AIP is clearly gonna be necessary too, however particularly on the extra restrictive plans. So if you happen to’re on AIP or another weight-reduction plan for intestine well being particularly, you’re not gonna be staying on these issues ideally, you understand, indefinitely or as a long run method as a result of if not, you might be creating nutrient deficiencies and issues like that long-term there too, if you happen to’re not paying consideration. Then particular meals I might say, some common meals that we may begin incorporating now which might be good for lots of people. I might say small-boned fish. So issues like salmon, anchovies, sardines, herring, mackerel, these sorts of fish with the bone in. You may get these in cans. Important Selection is a good place to go get these.


And people have, you understand, nice supply of protein, all of the minerals that you want to help your personal wholesome bones, and you then’ve received the omega 3s there too. So these are nice issues if we are able to incorporate these. You understand, do these each probability you get. Coconut oil, one other one is nice. It’s thought of one of many healthiest meals on the planet, but it surely’s nice on your bones too, okay? So virgin coconut oil is nice. It’s not solely been proven to assist with defending towards bone loss, however truly within the enchancment of bone construction. In order that’s one other one which might be useful. After which additionally arugula. Arugula is a good leafy inexperienced, identical cruciferous household of greens as broccoli and kale, but it surely’s decrease oxalate, okay? And spinach is a standard inexperienced that lots of people devour, however what they don’t perceive is that even if you happen to take a look at a container of spinach and it says, it’s received plenty of calcium there, most of that calcium just isn’t bioavailable. It’s certain up with oxalate.


So arugula is a good one to swap for that. And likewise, you understand, if anyone has points with oxalates, they might have kidney stones, arthritis, joint ache, issues like that, these could also be indicators. They may have a tough time breaking down and degrading that oxalate. So arugula might be swap there too. After which vitamin C-rich meals. These are nice as a result of vitamin C isn’t just key on your physique well being, it’s additionally necessary on your bone well being. Bones are made up of this collagen protein matrix upon which minerals are laid. Vitamin C stimulates pro-collagen. It enhances collagen synthesis, and it stimulates one thing referred to as alkaline phosphatase exercise, which is gonna assist with bone-building cell formation. So you will get that out of your citrus fruits, Kakadu plums, acerola cherries, strawberries. These are nice fruit sources.


After which, you understand, by way of vitamin C-rich greens, pink and yellow bell peppers, you understand, dino kale,  kale, steamed broccoli, Brussels sprouts, these are some nice choices by way of meals to get began.


After which simply by way of train, being energetic, incorporating resistance coaching. You wanna be sure to’ve received two various kinds of stimuli going by way of constructing your train plan, muscle pulling on bone and affect, okay? These are the best interventions for train. Muscle’s gonna pull on bone to make them stronger. That mechanical sign is gonna ship a chemical sign to inform the bone principally to turn out to be stronger. Influence workout routines, they’re welcome addition too. Swimmers and long-distance operating, they don’t present that different packed. So long-term, these shouldn’t be the one supply of train that somebody is getting. Actually necessary to stipulate that too. After which if we’re doing resistance coaching, research are gonna present that the best reality, the extra intense the train in that 5 to 10 rep vary, that’s what’s gonna be finest for exciting muscle and bone development.


Katie: Tremendous useful. I took plenty of notes. I really like that you just introduced up issues like canned sardines. I’ve been saying that for years of it being principally a multivitamin and I get pushback from individuals saying, “It’s so gross”. And I’m like, I promise you possibly can be taught to like it. Possibly put some pickles with it or mustard or no matter helps you with the style, but it surely’s like the most affordable pure supply of plenty of these issues that you would be able to get and also you’re actually getting bones. So it is smart that that might help your bones.

I additionally love that you just introduced up oxalates. As a result of I really feel like that is one other space that’s not talked about after we speak about, you understand, greens are nice for you, have tons and plenty of greens is that there’s such a spread there. And infrequently I’ve discovered simply genetically lots of people don’t do nice with a complete lot of leafy greens, particularly uncooked. And you’ll verify this. My understanding is that issues like cooking it may well truly cut back the oxalate and make it extra bioavailable. Another ideas for that? I really like the arugula one. I didn’t truly know that. So I’ll put that within the present notes as effectively.


Kevin: Yeah. Boiling is gonna have the best discount in oxalates, but additionally with that, you understand, you cut back among the different vitamins there too. However the discount just isn’t gonna be an entire discount, too. So if anyone is already…you understand, in the event that they’re coming to us and so they have already got digestive points, and kidney stones, and arthritis, and joint ache, we’re gonna, ideally, it’s not like you possibly can remove…or it’s difficult to remove each single meals that incorporates oxalate, however you can also make some wholesome alternate options and swaps, and arugula is simply a straightforward one to try this. And likewise plenty of occasions if individuals have taken antibiotics for a very long time or, you understand, they’ve completed some issues to degrade their intestine micro organism, one of many precise intestine micro organism that breaks down and degrade oxalates, oxalobacter formigenes, that might be a problem too, proper> Folks could not even have that intestine micro organism to assist break down and degrade the oxalate.


Katie: And also you additionally talked about bones being like type of a collagen matrix construction. Definitely like dietary dietary supplements of collagen have gotten actually well-liked within the final couple of years. Do you counsel these or is there a greater strategy to get that?


Kevin: Collagen dietary supplements can completely be useful, proper? Since you’re nonetheless getting the amino acids. The one factor to remember is that collagen just isn’t an entire protein, proper? It’s lacking tryptophan, you continue to should be positive you’re getting full proteins in your weight-reduction plan, however it may be an ideal addition. And it’s a straightforward addition for lots of people too. One other different for upping your protein consumption, which is tremendous necessary. You understand, ensuring you’re hitting your protein wants is tremendous necessary. Whey protein might be an possibility if anyone can truly tolerate that, that’s an necessary observe additionally. After which, you understand, entire meals, precise entire meals, canned sardines, issues like that. And also you don’t at all times need to eat the canned model of issues simply to get the bones. Sure, you possibly can nonetheless eat the opposite cooked salmon or baked salmon or rooster or, you understand, no matter it’s that you just’re incorporating, however incorporating that animal protein is completely one thing that, you understand, I feel is necessary to be doing in your weight-reduction plan.


Katie: Yeah. And I do know that there are plenty of additionally hormonal causes that ladies usually are extra affected by this than males, however among the factors you simply introduced up made me assume, particularly for ladies, there’s two actually necessary issues I needed to focus on that you just mentioned. One being about hitting protein targets as a result of I’ve had previous podcast visitors after which seen firsthand in my very own life that many ladies drastically under-eat and beneath devour sufficient protein. And this was actually pivotal for me after I truly began mapping out how a lot protein I used to be consuming after which ensuring to sufficient protein, I spotted I used to be method beneath what I wanted to get earlier than. And it grew to become a lot simpler to construct muscle and really reduce weight even by consuming extra meals after I received that protein in goal, which it’s nice to know additionally advantages my bones, however I really feel like usually for no matter cause, girls should not as inspired to eat as a lot protein. And that perhaps is an space of deficiency for lots of girls, together with the varieties of train that you just talked about.


I really feel like these affect and muscle versus bone actions are ones that on common, usually, guys are likely to do extra usually. And we see girls extra in like lessons or light cardio or swimming, however that’s not giving the identical results. So I’d love to only speak slightly bit extra about each of these, perhaps some specifics on protein targets and the way a lot is that train threshold as a result of like I mentioned, I noticed massive adjustments in my life from upping my protein after which doing issues like sprinting, like speedy sprints, after which weightlifting actually modified my physique fairly drastically. So I’d love to speak slightly bit extra about these.


Kevin: Yeah. So protein targets, I might look extra towards being at the least, on the very least, you understand, if you happen to’re 0.545 occasions your physique weight in kilos could be concerning the variety of grams of protein that you’d need. So let’s say you’re, you understand, 100-pound feminine, 0.545 occasions your physique weight and kilos could be about 55 grams of protein, minimal, completely minimal that you just’re gonna wanna be getting. And you’ll clearly go up from there to assist, particularly if you happen to’ve received that extra intense train and also you’re truly lifting and doing the resistance and issues like that, you wish to have the gasoline there and the vitamins there to supply that muscle development too. As a result of bear in mind what I mentioned, while you’re truly constructing muscle, that’s gonna assist construct bone too. So resisting coaching is tremendous necessary.


Lots of occasions too what I see with train is persons are doing…perhaps they’re long-distance cyclers or they’re long-distance runners and so they simply depend the operating. Possibly they run plenty of marathons or they’re clocking 5, 6, 7 miles each single day, however they don’t have another different train. Primary, you’re not getting the numerous affect if you happen to’re simply, you understand, operating the identical course. There’s no variation within the affect, that may have a adverse impact in your bones long-term. After which additionally if you happen to’re not truly lifting weights, constructing muscle energy, that’s actually solely working, you understand, for essentially the most half, the decrease half of your physique, however we’ve received different bones in elements of our skeleton that we simply can’t chalk that up if the one exercise that we’re doing for our decrease half. In order that’s after we wish to be incorporating among the bigger compound actions, the overhead presses, the deadlifts, the squats, these sorts of actions that have interaction essentially the most muscle and which might be truly, you understand, we’re doing them at the least within the 5 to 10 rep vary. That’s what’s gonna be most useful for exciting muscle and bone development.


I say that with an asterisk is that if you happen to don’t have a background in weightlifting, don’t simply leap on YouTube, watch a video of anyone deadlifting, after which go leap on the market to attempt to try this by yourself. That might result in potential damage. However if you happen to get some steerage, you get assured in this stuff, particularly on the youthful teams. If you happen to’re 20s, 30s, 40s, if you happen to can develop a ardour for this younger and also you get the best kind and physique mechanics down now, that’s gonna do wonders for you afterward in life. And lots of people don’t…the people who I work with plenty of occasions too, in the event that they’re of their 50s, 60s, particularly after they get to their 70s, they’ve received daughters, I hear this day by day, proper? They need they might’ve completed extra to be on the facet of prevention. And if you happen to’re in that age vary of 20, 30, 40s, maintain your bone well being in thoughts. Do this stuff now which might be gonna set you up for an energetic future.


Katie: Yeah. I noticed a extremely fascinating graphic on that one time of evaluating girls who had lifelong weightlifting passion or apply, and exhibiting that even girls of their 80s side-by-side of 1 who constantly, and it’s not like hours a day, we’re speaking small quantities of weightlifting and ate sufficient protein. And so they regarded 30 years aside in age. It was actually, actually drastic. In order a facet profit, this stuff additionally appear to have a fairly robust anti-aging impact.


Kevin: Completely, completely.


Katie: And also you talked about, individuals as they become older, and I do know that that’s a way more widespread demographic for bone loss, and we’re seeing that from the statistics, I’ve seen that’s on the rise proper now, fairly drastically as effectively. For individuals listening who’re both in that age bracket or have perhaps mother and father or relations who’re, I do know I’ve an prolonged member of the family who has been identified with bone loss, what are among the issues they’ll do, are they destined to only getting fractures, or can a few of these issues nonetheless assist type of enhance that trajectory for them?


Kevin: I imply, irrespective of the place somebody is at, you possibly can construct bone energy at any age. If you happen to bear in mind what I used to be saying earlier, you understand, it simply turns into tougher. You will have much less bone cells concerned within the course of as you become older. As you lose extra bone, the method of rebuilding turns into much less environment friendly. So the sooner you are able to do one thing the higher, however irrespective of while you begin, if you happen to… You understand, the start line, if we’re it as figuring out and addressing root trigger problems with bone loss, nourishing your physique and absorbing vitamins, and constructing energy, the physique, thoughts, and bone, you are able to do these issues at any age. So if you happen to’ve received root trigger points. I might encourage individuals in case you have a mother or father, proper, that perhaps you understand has bone well being points and so they’re simply type of ignoring it or placing it off or not taking note of it, encourage them to make assumptions, or not make assumptions and make goal choices, proper?


Encourage them to be their very own finest advocate and to verify they’ve all the information info they should make educated, knowledgeable choices shifting ahead with a drugs, proper? That’s at all times gonna be proposed by their physicians, however they’ll do one thing else first to see if that’s truly the route that they want even to go as a result of plenty of occasions it’s not. And simply determining the foundation trigger points, getting their diet plan in place, doing the best issues for workout routines are all tremendous, tremendous necessary.


Katie: Superior. I’ve received plenty of notes for you, guys, listening, I’m placing all of them there together with hyperlinks to be taught extra about all of those. For anybody listening who perhaps doesn’t have an acute drawback however desires to verify this isn’t going to turn out to be an issue, you’ve talked about some testing, however perhaps simply give us type of a blueprint for which explicit testing at what age is an efficient level to begin.


Kevin: So primary, DEXA scan. There’s additionally one other check on the market proper now referred to as the REMS check. And this check truly appears to be like at your bone high quality and your bone density on the identical time, okay? And that’s Radiofrequency Echographic Multi Spectrometry expertise. And what it does is it’s gonna inform your bone density, after which it’s gonna offer you a five-year main osteo product fracture danger. And it’s gonna additionally inform you your bone high quality, bone density, bone high quality mixed to create bone energy. So you might get that as a baseline. It’s extra prevalent in Europe, not a lot right here, but it surely’s gonna make its method, I feel extra into the U.S. right here actual quickly. After which additionally, the CTX check, the bone turnover markers that I talked about earlier, you will get a serum CT low peptide check to only perceive what the extent of your bone breakdown is earlier on.


That method, afterward in life, you type of have a benchmark. After which among the different ones, vitamin D, that’s a brilliant necessary check that we wanna make certain we’re getting. Take a look at the 25 hydroxyvitamin D. Once more, that vary is admittedly extensive. Usually, if you happen to’re within the U.S., 30 to 100 ng/ml, lots of people are on the decrease finish of that vary. We wanna bump that up. We wanna bump that up slightly bit extra. After which, clearly, the celiac check, checking your intestine well being. You understand, if you happen to’ve been consuming gluten for 30 days and also you’ve received these antibodies current, the tTg-IgA check, that’s gonna be a useful check to assist establish in case you have celiac illness.


After which additionally you will get your thyroid testing completed. So you are able to do a TSH. You’ll be able to take a look at your different thyroid markers, together with your ferritin too. You wanna take a look at your ferritin. Complete metabolic panel, CBC, after which your PTH, your parathyroid hormone, okay? That is gonna…your PTH, you wanna take a look at that in relation to your vitamin D and your blood calcium ranges simply to be sure to don’t have a parathyroid tumor, which might be raking calcium out of your bones. These are among the basic fundamental assessments. There are much more than that the place you possibly can dig, you understand, particularly deeper into sure areas primarily based on what these outcomes flip up, however that’s place to begin.


Katie: Superior. And I do know you’ve plenty of assets about this. The place can individuals discover you in the event that they wanna be taught extra about any of those specifics, or they’ve an acute drawback and wanna begin engaged on it?


Kevin: Yeah, completely. You’ll be able to at all times discover me over at That’s the simplest place. We even have a YouTube channel, Fb, Instagram, Pinterest, all the most important channels and a podcast too. So you possibly can at all times discover me @BoneCoach.


Katie: And people will probably be linked to you guys as effectively at, so you could find them. After which a few final questions that I like to ask on the finish of interviews, the primary being, if there’s a ebook or numerous books which have had a profound affect in your life? And in that case, what they’re and why?


Kevin: I might say for me, which might be an uncommon reply, “Little Blue Truck,” which if you happen to’ve received mothers, you understand, hearken to this, I’m positive they is perhaps conversant in that ebook. And actually all the opposite books that I learn to my children, proper? For me, it’s not a lot, I learn management and growth books and enterprise books and well being books, and issues like that on a regular basis. There are plenty of nice ones on the market, however by way of the books I truly care essentially the most about it could be those that I learn to my children at night time. It’s as a result of I didn’t have that with my dad after I was youthful. And actually for me, I really feel blessed to have that chance to be the daddy that mine didn’t get an opportunity to be for me. So these are the perfect books for me.


Katie: I really like that. That could be a new advice. I’ll make it possible for’s linked as effectively. I perceive what you imply about these are among the most particular books. Not that I discovered essentially the most from, however that I had essentially the most recollections from.


Kevin: For positive.


Katie: Are there another issues that folks don’t know or misunderstand about bone well being that we haven’t already coated immediately?


Kevin: I don’t know. Lots of occasions I get questions on, you understand, excessive issues by way of like, ought to I by no means do that once more, or ought to I… You understand, one of the crucial widespread ones I get is espresso and caffeine, for instance. Like, do I have to fully cease consuming espresso? Caffeine very barely will increase calcium excretion and reduces GI calcium absorption. Most individuals don’t have to fully keep away from espresso. And I usually spotlight that as like drink much less. So caffeine intakes higher than 300-milligram a day, so a cup of espresso normally has what, 100 to 250 milligrams, that will increase the quantity of calcium excretion the urine and the chance for osteoporosis-related fractures, however solely in those that weren’t assembly ample each day calcium consumption. In order that’s tremendous necessary, proper? I feel among the different ones, you understand, individuals at all times ask me about dairy.


You understand, it’s a wealthy supply of calcium. That could be a reality. Somewhat over 30% of calcium in dairy is absorbed. Ideally, that calcium must be coming…you understand, if we’re consuming cultured and fermented dairies, so your kefirs, your yogurts, these might be useful additions. However on the identical time, in case your dietary method, like, in case you have an autoimmune illness, for instance, and also you’re working making an attempt to place that into remission, dairy’s in all probability not gonna be integrated into that method. So, once more, it comes right down to variations for each single individual. There are many different methods to get calcium although with out utilizing dairy. Edible bones. Like we simply talked about earlier in sardines, that’s a good way. Cruciferous greens, the absorbability of calcium there’s fairly excessive, 40% to 60% about. After which it’s lots much less as you get into issues like Spinach, actually poor absorbability. Yeah, I might say these are among the larger questions that I get. You understand, ought to I incorporate dairy? No, it shouldn’t be your solely primary supply. For growing children, I feel it might be useful.


Katie: I feel lots of people will probably be relieved to know that espresso doesn’t need to go away fully. And it appears like we are able to popularize sardines and low for breakfast and clear up these issues.


Kevin: Oh, I’m all about that.


Katie: After which lastly, any parting recommendation, might be associated to bone well being or not?


Kevin: Yeah. I might simply say, you understand, be sort to your self. If you happen to’ve ever been on a well being journey in any respect, you understand that it may be irritating. It may be difficult. You attempt, you understand, plenty of the various things. They don’t work out. You pursue a special path. You make investments your time, your vitality, you understand, all this stuff into it and it may not work. Be sort to your self, be affected person. You understand, progress isn’t excellent, but it surely’s at all times potential. It’s worthwhile to intention for progress. That might be my factor.


Katie: I really like that. I feel that’s an ideal place to wrap up. And thanks a lot on your time immediately. This has been a extremely enjoyable deep dive. I do know I discovered lots, and hopefully, our listeners did as effectively. Thanks for being right here.
