Building Bone Vitality

A Revolutionary Diet Plan to Prevent Bone Loss and Reverse Osteoporosis

After reviewing over 1,200 research articles, authors give their insights on osteoporosis prevention. Our typical diet leads to a chronic state of metabolic acidosis that leaches calcium from bone. Curiously, the countries with the highest calcium intakes have the highest rates of osteoporosis.

Anne B. Simons, MD “I'm a family practitioner and I found this book refreshingly thought-provoking… I was shocked by the sheer number of studies cited…that challenge the conventional wisdom on bone health.”

Why we chose this book

This book was referred to me by a dietitian who read it and felt it fit our topic profile. I agreed and here's the course. I feel it's important to look at this nutrition-related problem that is not resolving with our present nutrition therapies and ways of thinking.
