Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“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.”
—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.”
—Martha Stark, MD, clinical instructor in psychiatry at Harvard Medical School

“McCormick has written a clear and concise guide to achieving optimal bone health. You will come away with a deep understanding of the complex causes of osteoporosis. Most importantly, the wide variety of practical tools and solutions he provides will empower you to live your very best life.”
—Liz O’Dair, MD, MPH, integrative medicine physician at Northampton Wellness Associates in Northampton, MA

“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.”
—Kara Fitzgerald, ND, clinician, Advanced Diagnostic, Yale-New Haven at Longwharf; consultant at Metametrix Institute

“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
