PublicationsYour Bones: How You Can Prevent Osteoporosis & Have Strong Bones for Life Naturally Book synopsis: When in her mid-forties, the author, now 63, was diagnosed with osteopenia--a loss of bone density that is the precursor to osteoporosis. Today, by following the recommendations discussed in this book, she has strong, healthy bones and will be the first woman in generations in her family not to die from osteoporosis. The bisphosphonate drugs prescribed for osteoporosis—eg Fosamax, Boniva -- should be your last choice: not only do they have numerous nasty side effects, they cause retention of old, brittle bone instead of creating new, healthy bone and actually promote fractures! Your Bones will teach you how to identify those factors in your life that are putting your bones at risk and will arm you with the cutting edge information you need to have healthy bones for life, naturally—relying on diet, exercise and supplements. Every statement this book is backed up with peer-reviewed medical research. Your Bones is an essential handbook for anyone wanting to prevent osteoporosis in later life. Available on Amazon
