Dr. Laura Kelly and her mother, Helen Bryman Kelly, thoroughly explain why osteoporosis is most often due to deficiency, not disease, and how and why to prepare traditional foods for bone health as well as overall gut health. They debunk many of the myths touted in today’s food culture and demonstrate how to have an integrated and empowering conversation with your doctor. This is a must-read for those looking to treat osteoporosis and for anyone looking to understand nutrition, eat traditionally, and thrive.

Calcium supplements and drugs are not the answer to preventing or treating osteoporosis. The Healthy Bones Nutrition Plan and Cookbook has the answers that conventional medicine keeps missing. I highly recommend this terrific book.

The Healthy Bones Nutrition Plan and Cookbook is such an important source of valuable information about eating right to avoid bone loss. Every woman needs a copy in her library.

The HEALTHY BONES Book
Despite the millions consumers spend on calcium pills and the number of prescriptions for bone loss drugs they fill, worldwide there is an osteoporotic fracture every three seconds. Clearly, calcium pills and pharmaceuticals aren’t enough to keep bones healthy - but the science is right: diet can. Eating the right foods in the right nutrient combinations can help you build bone reserves before menopause, control bone loss after it, and arrest bone loss if not restore it at any time of life. We know this firsthand because some of the recipes in this book were Helen Kelly’s starting point for arresting severe osteoporotic bone loss at age 70.
