Heavy Metals & Osteoporosis. Turn Your Health Around Safely w/ Dr. Christine Schaffner

The Bone Coach Podcast | Osteoporosis & Bone Health | Dr Christine Schaffner Naturopathic Medicine and Heavy Metals

In my interview with Dr. Christine Schaffner we discuss heavy metals, osteoporosis detoxification, lyme disease and so much more. 

Heavy metals are known to cause and contribute to a wide range of health issues including osteoporosis… and they’re found in a lot of different places… in our air, our water, industrial pollution, automobile exhaust, our food supply, cooking products, toys, dental fillings,  and a lot of other places. Unlike organic pollutants, heavy metals are nonbiodegradable and have tendency to accumulate in living beings. Most heavy metals are known to be potential carcinogens, that, as I said before, can contribute to many different health issues. 

So if you want to learn about the impact heavy metals can be having on your body and your bones… you’re going to want to stay tuned for the episode.
