No pill will cure you of osteoporosis. While medication can sometimes help, it won’t fully address the underlying causes of your osteoporosis or osteopenia. To restore bone health, you’ll need a targeted program combining the best bone-building strategies from traditional and holistic medicine. The Whole-Body Approach to Osteoporosis distills these complex strategies into a whole-body plan you can begin today to dramatically improve your bone strength and overall vitality.

This comprehensive guide includes information on:

  • What to eat for stronger bones
  • Choosing bone-building supplements and osteoporosis medications
  • Foods and medications that may be contributing to bone loss
  • Signs and symptoms that can help you monitor your bone health
  • How lab tests can help you personalize your plan

  1. Richard L. Gerstein, MD, chief medical officer at Baystate Mary Lane Hospital in Ware, MA

    Keith McCormick is a brilliant, courageous pioneer who, in this long-awaited guide, has torn away the curtain from the mystery of osteoporosis. Anyone seeking to renew their bone health will find the information presented in this meticulously researched handbook totally accessible, eminently usable, inspiring, and life-changing. This is a seminal work that will transform the way osteoporosis is treated in this country and will be referenced for years to come both by physicians and the general public.

  2. JJ Virgin, Ph.D., CNS, CHFI, nutritionist, fitness expert, and author of The Art of Losing It

    To build better bones, you’ll need to do way more than pop calcium pills and take walks. Now you can get inside information from the bone health guru. If you are planning on living a long life, you will need great bones. Don’t hesitate—grab this book and take action!

  3. David Abram, author of The Spell of the Sensuous

    A savvy and practical self-help approach to osteoporosis. This necessary manual is crafted by a healer keenly attuned to the subtle interdependencies between bone health and exuberant, whole-body health.

    I ordered this book from Amazon because Amazon suggested because I bought other Osteoporosis books.
    This is by far the best Osteoporosis book on the market. I exhausted myself doing so much research before I read this book. Everyone has so much conflicting information.
    But the author is a doctor who had osteoporosis.
    When I say “had” I say that because he went from being in a wheel chair to doing iron man.
    To tell you the truth I am glad he had Osteoporosis because he is a man and it is considered a woman’s disease which I think is the main reason why the drugs are so horrible!
    He also has a blog with updated information since he wrote the book in 2009. A few years ago he came out with a supplement line for Osteoporosis. He suggested supplement companies to look into in the book but then he came out with his own line and they have all of the ingredients that he suggests in the book and some new ones. The products are called Osteonaturals and they get 5 starts on Amazon.
    Some people complain that you have to read the whole book. I understand how hard it is to sit up for a long time reading with spine problems.
    So if you don’t want to read the whole book skip to page 184 he says if you can only do a few things do these things.
    And then go to the Appendix on page 189 and he condenses it all quite nicely.
    He discusses every subject and answers every question you could possibly have in the book so if you have Osteoporosis or just Osteopenia and you want to prevent getting Osteoporosis this book will help you do that!
    This book gave me hope for recovery!

    I’m postmenopausal, losing bone density but not quite at osteoporosis. McCormick’s book is one of several I have read on the subject and by far the most valuable in understanding why one might develop osteoporosis and excellent tools in fighting it, even though the book and therefore the information is several years old. I read it as a library book and now have one of my own because I want it as a reference.

    What was most jaw dropping for me was how clearly McCormick explained how and why chronic inflammation, from any source, can develop and then lead to osteoporosis as well as many other chronic conditions. In other words, a book I wish all my friends would read whether or not they believe they’re at risk of bone issues. Because frankly, as a result of their lifestyles they probably are. Lowering bone density is something you want to catch early, and what helps your bones probably helps you in many other ways too.

    Avoiding fractures isn’t just about preserving bone density, which is a measure of bone quantity and doesn’t say much about quality which is at least as important and an area that might be more productive to work on than trying to increase bone density. A benchmark for me in books like this is whether the author understands the role of Vitamin K2. McCormick basically does which greatly increases his credibility in my opinion as to nutritional recommendations. He gives the basics on exercise but you’ll need to explore elsewhere for specifics.

    Excellent, clear and complete way to heal osteoporosis

    A book that results from a personal experience is very enriching . When the book is written by a health professional’s illness experience, has no price. There is no one book that focus the osteoporosis problem with an integral approach, where a system view is the guide.This book is unique by the method that analyzes this complex alteration of our body.
    The subject is complex, but the author has performed an impeccable task to transform the difficult to explain in some clear understanding.
    Equipped with the information and analysis of the book, we can select the best therapy for us.
    The use of medication is very specific and may be for short period of time, until the risk of fracture decreases, of course the whole problem as desribed in this book is not solved by medications only.
    Doctor McCormick suffered many fractures before he was diagnosed by this condition and after integrating his new and intelligent approach, he solved this complex riddle, with the same vision that share with us, diligently.
    This material should be read in all schools of medicine.

    Must-read for anyone fighting osteoporosis

    This is an important read for anyone fighting osteoporosis – Dr. McCormick’s story is so compelling!! especially for those of us who have always been health- and fitness-minded and suddenly found ourselves diagnosed with very thin bones. He goes into the causes of osteoporosis, the diagnostic tests, real-life case studies and what-you-need-to-do to put together the most effective opposition to and recovery from osteoporosis.

    I learned a lot from this great book. And the fact that Dr. McCormick has come back to compete at the highest athletic levels is so inspirational, especially when conventional medicine whips out an Rx pad and says here, take this pill – see ya in a year.

    Both this book and the Companion “ Yoga for Osteoporosis “ are right on target for having variations of poses to accommodate anyones area of “ flexibility “ and detail instructions to accommodate each one. For those of us who want more flexibility of time and choice of poses.

    Excellent source of information on how to understand and battle this disease.

    Wow! What an informative and well researched book. As a physical therapist, looking for answers regarding my own battle with osteoporosis, this book is proving invaluable for working toward a solution of this issue. It is a bit heady in parts as it examines the physiology of bone health, integrating this knowledge with diagnostic testing , nutrition, and lifestyle changes. If you are looking for a path towards getting to the root of this issue in your life or for a loved one and not just blindly taking supplements and prescribed osteoporotic medications, this is the book.
