Inspiring Conversations with Sarah Glicken of OsteoStrong Mar Vista

Today we’d like to introduce you to Sarah Glicken.

Hi Sarah, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I was born and raised in Santa Fe, NM to NYC hippie transplants. They loved life and loved health. I learned the importance of being healthy from a very young age and was taught how we must look at ALL of our bodies – physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. I was fortunate to be exposed to alternative forms of medicine while also understanding the value of western allopathic doctors. I always knew I wanted to make big impact on the world and do good for the world by impacting people’s health, but I wasn’t sure how that would happen. After university, I went into the corporate world. In 2008 my mom died and my world went dark and was changed forever. It took several years for me to come back to the light. When I did, my dad was also diagnosed with cancer and subsequently died. When he died in 2017, I knew that I needed to make a bigger impact in the world and made a commitment to open my own business so I could do good and help people. I realized that we are living in a world of “sick care”, not “health care” and I wanted to be part of the solution, not the problem.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
I’ve more death in my life than most people my age, which has been incredibly challenging but has also taught me the value of this one life we have and the importance of living. Coming back to the light after the death of my parents was very difficult. Author Isabel Allende said it best in her book Aphrodite: “After the death of my daughter, Paula, I spent three years trying to exorcise my sadness with futile rituals. Those years were three centuries filled with the sensation that the world had lost its color and that a universal grayness had spread inexorably over every surface. I cannot pinpoint the moment when I saw the first brush strokes of color, but when my dreams about food began, I knew that I was reaching the end of a long tunnel of mourning and finally coming out the other end, into the light, with a tremendous desire to eat and cuddle once again.”

How do you think about luck?
I think that passion, intention, and joy-seeking have played larger roles in my life than luck. I do believe that I’m guided and am always looking for the synchronicities that take me in new directions where I’m certain I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be. I believe that every experience, even the challenging ones, are opportunities for growth. In November 2017, I wound up at. a Tony Robbins conference that I wasn’t meant to go to for another year. It was that event that shifted the focus of my and my fiance’s life. Six months later, we opened OsteoStrong.
