“Marodyne LiV is a really positive way to boost my health and sets me up for the day”
Diana Moran BEM – aka the ‘Green Goddess’ – was diagnosed with osteopenia aged 74. Diana admits she was both surprised and disappointed with her diagnosis as she has kept fit all her life and always done lots of weight-bearing exercise, “I rather thought I wouldn’t be one of those people who would get osteopenia or osteoporosis, but have subsequently learned that by their late 60s, many women are likely to have osteopenia.”
In characteristic style, Diana vowed to fight the disease; now in her 80s, she remains fit and well. She favours natural solutions to health issues and so enjoys using Marodyne LiV everyday as part of her bone health regime.
“I love the way Marodyne LiV stimulates the body’s cells in a wholly natural way,” says Diana who uses the device daily, often while working at her standing desk. She finds it very easy to use. “There is no need to input data, weigh yourself or work out calculations – it does all that for you! I love that you just plug it in, turn it on and stand on it. It really is that easy.”
Diana loves feeling the soothing sensation of the vibrations going right the way up through her body, “I find the sensation pleasant and relaxing: the vibrations are very gentle, like the purring of my cat!”
As well as building bone, she uses the device to improve her muscle strength and help ease her occasional back pain.
“Marodyne LiV energises me and sets me up for the day,” says Diana who uses the device every day to boost her health. Diana has recently also had a bad back – partly as a result of a fall – and was pretty uncomfortable. “I needed to stand up quite a lot and found using Marodyne LiV really helped with the pain.”
Diana recommends Marodyne LiV to her friends and peers with confidence because – unlike many osteoporosis drugs – it has no side-effects or contraindications and can be used alongside other medications.
Many of her friends of a similar age have knee or hip problems and Diana is quick to tell them that Marodyne LiV not only builds bone but can also help post-operatively for aches and pains.
We can’t ignore the damaging impact osteoporosis has on women’s lives
Up to 80% of us will experience osteoporosis in our lifetime
To protect patients and healthcare providers, we need to focus on preventing the causes of osteoporosis, not treating the outcomes
We are working together with Menohealth to create a society free from osteoporosis. Julie Robinson, founder of Menohealth, shares our ethos that prevention is better than ‘cure’ when managing menopause symptoms and actively encourages women to take control of their bodies at this time of their life.
“I’m reassured by the fact Marodyne LiV is clinically approved to prevent and combat osteoporosis and the science backing its effectiveness looks strong,” says Julie. “As a 100% natural way to boost bone health, Marodyne LiV sits well alongside our stance here at Menohealth of taking a holistic approach to healthcare. I have no hesitation in recommending women look at using Marodyne LiV alongside making healthy diet and lifestyle choices during menopause.”
