Osteoporosis is a worldwide epidemic. You might not even know you've got it until you fracture a bone. But it doesn't need to happen to you - osteoporosis is treatable and preventable, and this book will show you how. Find out why there aren't any symptoms, how to tell if you've got it, how to avoid it and how to boost bone health. Dr Marilyn Glenville looks at why some women are more at risk than others and discusses how to test for osteoporosis. Using the latest research and clinical practice, she then looks at the optimum treatment approach and the importance of nutrition and exercise. She offers help and guidance that combines natural alternatives with conventional treatments. Whatever your worries, this book will arm you with the facts you need to protect yourself.
