Are You at Risk for Osteosarcopenia? How to Know
Are You at Risk for Osteosarcopenia? How to Know What a mouthful, osteosarcopenia. This condition that refers to bone and muscle losses is relatively new. There is a lack of consensus among researchers on what to call it (sarco-osteopenia, sarco-osteoporosis, osteosarcopenia). No matter what they name it, for you and I this is a topic we need to unpack. Before we dive into this week’s episode … a shout out to listener mlg114 who left this comment in iTunes: “You and Figs might have saved my marriage. My husband and I have been in the “me exercise you not” pattern for a few years! We’ve been hurting each other unintentionally on this very subject! Result has been severe resentment though we’re about to celebrate 25 years married! You have spread your mission of kindness to us successfully! Thank you with all my heart for this valuable, intelligent podcast!” So thank you to mlg114 this made my day and I shared it with Figs, too.I’d love it if you’d leave a rating in iTunes too. I have been reading these regularly and want to start sharing them with you. I’ll link to iTunes in today’s show notes at flippingfifty.com/osteosarcopenia and to the episode about how to encourage healthy habits without nagging. So let’s get into it. I’ve got a lot to cover here. You’ll notice this episode is potentially longer than most. It’s a big topic. There’s a lot of controversy at first glance and that’s resulting in a lot of confusion. I want to clear it all up for you. Osteosarcopenia is the new term given to the combination of osteopenia/osteoporosis and sarcopenia. I’ve got to cover some vocabulary first. Osteoporosis is the low bone mineral density (BMD) that is statistically 2.5 standard deviations from the ideal of a young woman. Meaning, it’s significantly lower than ideal bone density. Osteopenia is the space between that ideal bone mineral density and 2.5 standard deviations from ideal. You’re not good any longer, you’re not quite bad enough to diagnose as having osteoporosis. But it’s not going in the right direction. Sarcopenia is pronounced muscle and strength loss. It can be in spite of normal weight or obesity – that when coupled is termed “sarcobesity.” It’s characterized by low grip strength, a poor chair stand test (say you can’t do more than 5 rises from a chair in 15 seconds), low muscle measured by a DXA scan, and low performance of a battery of tests like an up and go test and a timed 400 meter walk, to name a couple. The combination of both low bone density and low muscle mass is what I’m referring to today as osteosarcopenia. This Episode Non-pharmacological strategies to help prevent, reverse, or treat (by way of exercise and lifestyle habits) to improve both conditions independently and the combined condition osteosarcopenia are the topic for this episode.

Which Infrared Sauna Benefits Do I Love Most?
Which Infrared Sauna Benefits Do I Love Most? For me, infrared sauna was a health investment, but it was mostly for relaxing and recovery. I loved the idea of natural detox and increased metabolism. But it wasn’t until I was exposed to months of mold in the house I rented that I realized how fortunate I was to already have it right there in my home. I invited my friend Alicia Botryruis from Sunlighten to share some news during Sunlighten’s anniversary. I saw her recently at a conference and they’ve got a new toy! It makes it easy to enjoy infrared sauna benefits on a budget of any size! So I wanted you to hear about it! Alicia has been a health and wellness advocate for over 25 years. She is passionate about sharing the full-spectrum of a vibrant lifestyle, which empowers people to live a healthier, happier and more colorful life. Alicia believes wellness is equal parts nurture, perseverance and listening to your intuition.

Exercise in Hormone Balance: Easy Moves, Amazing Results
Exercise in Hormone Balance: more than going for a walk Exercise influences hormones. Hormones influence exercise. You, already know this. I’ve said it before here at Flipping 50. But you already know because there are days you don’t feel like exercising, or you feel like the mirror isn’t reflecting the consistent hard work you’ve done. And it feels relative to hormone changes. Whether you knew you were in perimenopause or not– that period of time lasting up to 10 years for some women, you realize that other things were changing too. Your skin seemed to be thinning, maybe showing more signs of wrinkles or more cellulite than you had before. You may deal with both breakouts and fine lines during this time. You notice more hair loss in the shower. So is the answer hormone replacement? What if you are and you’re still not feeling 100%? It doesn’t do all the heavy lifting, or shouldn’t. And you’ve got a lot more control than we ever might have known. The foods you eat, or don’t, the sleep habits you have, or don’t, the way you handle stress or don’t, and exercise type and timing play a factor.
