For overall skeletal health, bone density is important, of course. But bone quality is just as important."
Prof. Hans is an award-winning clinician and researcher. His area of expertise is measuring bone density and bone quality. The latter of which his company pioneered with the groundbreaking TBS iNsight software that builds on a standard DEXA scan to assess bone macro- and microarchitecture.
Prof. Hans has authored 270+ articles and serves as Head of Research and Development in the Bone and Joint Department at the Centre for Bone Diseases at the prestigious Lausanne University Hospital in Switzerland. He also sits on the International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF)’s Committee of Scientific Advisors.
Dr. Loren Fishman
Dr. Fishman is the authority on yoga for bone health. After spending a year in India studying under B.K.S. Iyengar, the yoga teacher who helped introduce yoga to the Western world, Dr. Fishman began to notice the profound effect yoga can have on the skeletal system.
The common thinking at the time was that it was too dangerous to teach yoga to people with low bone density. But Dr. Fishman saw yoga as the perfect exercise to help stimulate bone growth.
His dedication and scientific research led to the “Fishman Method” ––12 yoga poses that several studies show can complement bone building–– and the best-selling book, Yoga for Osteoporosis.
Dr. Carole McArthur
Dr. McArthur teaches immunology and directs research at the University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC). She holds a PhD in the field of immunology with a minor in biochemistry from the University of Otago in New Zealand.
Dr. McArthur has written extensively about the key role the immune system plays in bone loss and how immune cells, which originate from the bone marrow, can influence bone resorption. She also directs humanitarian efforts in Africa and has established several research clinics to provide treatment for locals.
Dr. Liz Lipski
Dr. Lipski has spent over 30 years researching–– and educating people about–– the connection between digestive health and chronic diseases, including osteoporosis. As Dr. Lipski puts it, “if digestion isn’t working, then nothing is working.”
She's authored several books, including the comprehensive Digestive Wellness and its online companion course, The Art of Digestive Wellness.
