On a personal level Dr. McCormick has always been active in sports and competitive events, so receiving a diagnosis of severe osteoporosis in 1999 and being told he had the bones of a 100 year old woman, was a lifechanging shift. During five dismal years when he sustained 12 fractures, he saw numerous specialists. After several bone density examinations, MRIs, bone scans, xrays, extensive lab work, and a bone biopsy he was told to take bisphosphonate medications to harden his skeleton and a thiazide drug to reduce the calcium loss in his urine. But Dr. McCormick wasn’t interested in medications, he wanted to find out why he had bone loss, fix it, and make his skeleton healthier and more resistant to breaking. Bisphosphonates, he knew, would only make his bones denser, not healthier. Through research of his own disease, Dr. McCormick realized that there was very little offered in the way of nutritional support by the typical supplements found on most health store shelves. He wanted a much higher quality than what was available. After 10 years of process and development, Dr. McCormick created what he thought to be the best product available. Since then, OsteoNaturals has had countless success stories making positive impacts on customers all over the globe.
