Get Ready for Our New Guided Imagery for Osteoporosis!
Osteoporosis, which literally means “porous bones,” happens when your body can no longer make new bone tissue fast enough to replace the old. Your bones silently get weaker and more brittle until one day something snaps when you fall – or cough, or get out of a chair. Yikes!
Osteoporosis affects 1 in 3 women and 1 in 5 men over 50 worldwide. That said, you’re a lot more likely to have it if you’re female.
Of the 10 million Americans with osteoporosis, 80% are women. Another Yikes!
Other things that increase your risk include being white or Asian, having a thin frame, smoking, using steroids, not getting enough vitamin D, being exposed to medications for breast cancer, and having a history of broken bones as an adult, especially hip fractures.
Of course, not all of these things are under your control, but there’s lots you can do to prevent bone loss and strengthen weak bones. Medication, a healthy diet, and weight-bearing exercise all help. So does guided imagery and meditation – and we’re excited to offer our new meditation to help support the body’s own , built-in, natural power to replace and repair bone tissue.
The Masterful Maestro of Meditation himself, Emmett Miller, has created accurate, science-based imagery – both at the physiological, cellular, emotional and metaphoric level. His instantly identifiable voice guides listeners to imagine, in an open, receptive way, the body’s built-in brilliance at directing cellular activity that repairs weakened bone tissue, as well as the work of cells that prevent overgrowth.
By listening daily to this simple but powerful immersive experience, listeners can support and increase the process of repair that occurs naturally, while augmenting strength, resilience, and motivation for wellness. There’s also a separate track of brief affirmations that are safe and convenient to use while driving or on the go.
Good News for app subscribers! You get pre-release access to all our new guided meditations, several weeks before they're available for purchase on the website. So that means you can log in and listen to the Emmett Miller's imagery for osteoporosis right now.
