The science behind Superman and bone density contains more truth than one might expect. That truth can now be applied through a new, breakthrough technology, explained by inventor and guest author, Dr. John Jaquish. When I speak to medical practitioners about treating osteoporosis with heavy, multiples of bodyweight loading, I am often asked about research to support … [Read more...]

The Arthritis and Bone Density Relationship

Arthritis and bone density degradation have a relationship. When pain is sensed in a joint your body can limit loading on bone in that given area. There is often a vicious cycle of deconditioning associated with aging. It starts with pain in joints, which limits the ability for muscles to contract to their full potential. When muscles cannot engage, they shrink, … [Read more...]
