Bone Boosters: Natural Ways to Prevent Osteoporosis by Diana Moran
Co-written by television's Green Goddess, this is a layperson's guide to what osteoporosis is, what treatments are available to combat it, and how, through exercise, it can be prevented. Specialized exercises are outlined, focusing on the bones vulnerable to crippling and painful fractures in later life. A section is devoted to those who suffer from osteoporosis and have limited mobility, and there are other exercises for anyone between 19 and 90. The book also discusses the most relevant sports and activities to aid the bones, the best foods to eat and those best avoided, and recent developments in drug treatments and what alternative medicines can offer. A list of contacts is provided for those who suffer from the disease or want to be screened.
