Aunt Henrietta’s Birthday

This weekend is Aunt Henrietta’s 90th birthday.  I have just the right gift for her, Adora Premium Chocolates.  My Aunt Henrietta has been our posterchild since the beginning of Cedar Valley Bone Health Institute of Iowa.  Her adventures are well chronicled.

First, she broke one wrist when she was thrown down by a throw rug.  Then she broke the other wrist when her bifocals did her in.  Then she broke her shoulder when she thought all the ice had melted.  I had to tell her Endocrinologist about the Anabolic, Forteo.  She agreed to give herself a daily shot.  Then she proved that treatment had worked by falling down the stairs and not breaking anything.  Finally she locked in the gains of Forteo by starting the Antiresorptive that gets along with her severe GERD and aging kidneys, Prolia.

She can live alone in her own home because she Took Control of her bone health, with Calcium, Vitamin D3, Protein, Multiple Vitamins and Minerals, and Osteoporosis Medications.  They are all necessary.

Happy Birthday Aunt Henrietta!

“I Fall All the Time, But I Don’t Break Anything”

Aunt Henrietta looked like half a raccoon with her entire left eye blackened.  She dismissed her looks as not a problem saying, “I fall all the time, but I don’t break anything.”  This is a change on both counts.  Five years ago, falls were infrequent.  Even so, she broke one wrist, then the other wrist, then her shoulder.

Two wrists, one shoulder, and half a dozen vertebral fragility fractures indicated Very Severe Osteoporosis.  That was before she took the Anabolic, Forteo, for 2 years.  She was the ideal patient for serious measures to stop her fractures.  And it has worked!!

Happy Birthday Aunt Henrietta

Aunt Henrietta is celebrating her 89th birthday, and 4 1/2 years without a fracture!  This is a major victory for her.  She is one of our many stars!

Despite starting on enough calcium and enough vitamin D over 6 years ago, Henrietta broke one wrist, then the other wrist, and finally a shoulder.  Finally she added osteoporosis medications.  Despite falling all the way down the attic stairs, she has not broken anything since.

Give Calcium for the Holidays – in Premium Chocolates!

Aunt Henrietta will be getting delicious, premium dark chocolate for Christmas again this year.  She gets the same for Easter and her August birthday.  Not often that an 88 year old gets something she desires and needs as a gift.  Because of her lactose intolerance and intolerance of all calcium pills, she needs this gift.

Henrietta needs to get enough Calcium if she is to Take Control Naturally.  That is very challenging with her sensitivities to milk, soy milk, cheses, calcium carbonate pills, calcium citrate, calcium maleate, calcium gluconate, etc.  Adora works.

Adora Premium Chocolate Calcium Supplement often works where others have not.  It is delicious!  The calcium is so finely ground that is undetectable.  So finely ground that Aunt Henrietta digests it despite her Nexium.  It is dessert in just 30 calories.
