Synopsis

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."
