Editor's Review:

You Can Fight-and Even Reverse-Bone Loss
How strong are your bones? At 35, a woman's battle against bone loss begins. And, it intensifies with menopause and beyond. Conventional medicine has offered such controversial therapies as estrogen replacement, a treatment that is potentially dangerous and only partially effective. Now, Dr. Gaby, one of the foremost authorities on nutritional and natural medicine, offers practical advice on osteoporosis that substantially increases a woman's chances for maintainting and even regaining normal bone mass. Inside you'll learn:
·How diet can help or hurt your bones
·How food allergies contribute to osteoporosis
·Which types of exercise are beneficial
·Why vitamin K is as important for bones as calcium
·And much more!
"A breakthrough approach to the successful treatment and/or prevention of osteoporosis."
-Health News & Review
"Clear and practical. This book will help thousands of women create healthy bones. And for those who already have osteoporosis, it provides solutions and hope." -Christiane Northrup, M.D., F.A.C.O.G., bestselling author, Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom

Reader Reviews:

This book is excellent and has surpassed my expectations of information, not only on osteoporosis, but many other aspects of health care. In fact, I am so pleased with it that I have bought a total of 4 copies, 3 being for my children. Two of them are in health care, and the third will also benefit immensely from the knowledge this book provides. Thank you, Dr. Gaby, for writing this book and sharing your knowledge and research with those of us with osteoporosis, and those who can head off its devastating effects. This was copyrighted in the early 1990s and there has been a lot of new information about bone density/HRT since that time. It does have thorough, clearly written information about a nutritional approach to preserving bone density. Of course nutrition is most important and I absorbed a lot of the information about vitamins and minerals needed. He went into so many side issues on womens' health (such as Toxemia during pregnancy) rather than being specific to osteoporosis, which is my main concern right now. I have osteoporosis and am not thinking about getting pregnant at this age. I thought he'd be more direct about exercise and advice along those lines. Doctors speak immediately about Fosamax and I wanted his opinion on that. When the book ended, I felt unsatisified.The essential ingredients for preventing and reversing osteoporosis are nutrition and exercise. But far too many people are led to believe that the only nutrient required is calcium. In this excellent book Dr. Gaby -- a highly-regarded nutritional expert -- points out the importance of other nutrients including magnesium, boron, vitamin D and other vitamins and minerals. If you are serious about preventing or reversing osteoporosis I beg you to read this book and follow Dr. Gaby's advice.This book offers advice that you won't hear from the average doctor. Every patient with osteoporosis has already heard the advice "take more calcium and excercise more", but this author suggests that in addition to adhering to that advice, folks should also take additional mineral supplements (including strontium, boron, and several others, many of which the author documents to be at least as important as calcium in building bone density). The author also explains exactly why progesterone (not progestin) is a good thing to take and documents its lack of side effects (which I'm happy to report has been my experience). No one had ever told me there are natural compounds other than calcium which are important (perhaps crucial!) to building and maintaining strong bones. I am so grateful I stumbled upon this book.

I found out at age 28 that I had osteoporosis. Within a couple of years of reading this book and following its advice, my bones have actually become denser and I have had no fractures. I am happy to say that thanks to this author I have been able to avoid taking bone-building drugs, many of which can have strong side effects.

Your bones will thank you for reading this book!!
