Twelve years ago when I was diagnosed with severe osteoporosis I knew that simply taking osteoporosis medications to harden my skeleton was not the answer. I was in search of a natural solution to my osteoporosis, one that made them healthy and not just denser.

Each book or article and website I found claimed to have the “answer” to “cure” my osteoporosis, but all I found was the same thing, over and over again: eat better, take calcium, vitamin D, and exercise. Well, these are all very important–and I certainly did them all faithfully–but I continued to loose bone density.

Running past some “Skeleton” cactus (Teddybear Cholla) in Hell Hole Canyon, Anza Borrego, CA

It took me over 5 years, and 12 fractures, but my continued research paid off. I was finally able to find the right combination of natural compounds that really could improve the health of my bones and STOP (not just reduce) my state of constantly breaking bones. (That’s why I can do things now like run through Hell Hole Canyon and enjoy the skeleton cactus’…and not just worry about my own skeleton!)

My book, The Whole-Body Approach to Osteoporosis, outlines this natural approach to osteoporosis. It includes the benefits of eating better, and taking calcium and vitamin D, and engaging in exercise…but there is MUCH more! If you or someone you care for has been diagnosed with osteopenia or osteoporosis, take advantage of a proven approach to turning that diagnosis around.
