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."
--Richard L. Gerstein, MD, chief medical officer at Baystate Mary Lane Hospital in Ware, MA
"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!"
--JJ Virgin, Ph.D., CNS, CHFI, nutritionist, fitness expert, and author of The Art of Losing It
"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."
--David Abram, author of The Spell of the Sensuous
"Who would have thought that a reference guide on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of osteoporosis could be such a page-turner? This delightful gem of a book is truly a masterfully crafted, informative, and deeply satisfying read. It is most certainly destined to become a classic in the field of bone health."

"Faced with severe osteoporosis and multiple fractures at age 45, Keith McCormick, a chiropractor and athlete, undertook the formidable task of understanding the complex nature of bone weakness and its healing. This book provides the public with the most updated, advanced, and comprehensive approach to bone health regeneration available today."
--Susan E. Brown, Ph.D., author of Better Bones, Better Body and director of the Center for Better Bones in East Syracuse, NY
"McCormick has done a masterful job at informing the reader about the 'big picture' of maintaining optimal bone health. Control of the osteoporosis epidemic will require more than reflexive prescribing of osteoporosis medications and calcium supplements. His recommendations, including advice on medications, nutritional supplements, diet, and lifestyle, are right on the money."
--David M. Brady, ND, DC, CCN, DACBN, director of the Human Nutrition Institute and associate professor of clinical sciences at the University of Bridgeport in Bridgeport, CT
"Having traversed the wilderness of osteoporosis himself, McCormick now provides us with an invaluable guidebook in a very accessible format. I have no doubt many individuals with osteoporosis and their clinicians will benefit greatly from the wisdom presented here."

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!
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.
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.
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.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR SHARING WITH US YOUR WISE KNOWLEDGE.
