Whole-Food Guide to Strong Bones: A Holistic Approach

Whole-Food Guide to Strong Bones: A Holistic Approach Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As our population ages, the loss of bone density and other effects of osteoporosis will be among our most serious health concerns. In fact, the natural regeneration of bone mass that keeps our bones strong and supple dramatically slows as we grow older, and nearly a third of the women in their postmenopausal years will become seriously affected by osteoporosis. In this new book by well-known food educator and author Annemarie Colbin, the reader will discover the latest research and findings on how to create stronger, fracture-resistant bones with whole foods. This book gives readers a complete lifestyle program, including some 100 delicious and satisfying recipes, that can strengthen bones and prevent osteoporosis. Readers will also discover new information about why too much calcium can actually increase their risk of fracture, how they can dramatically improve the health of their bones through the kinds of food they eat, how to rebuild bone mass naturally, which foods weaken the bones, and more. Also covered are strategies for tapping into the body's own healing potential and understanding the spiritual aspects of aging and health.

Book News Annotation:

Health educator Colbin runs the National Gourmet Institute for Health and Culinary Arts in New York City. When she reached menopause, she began researching how her long devotion to healthy natural foods could help slow the otherwise progressive deterioration of bone in older people, especially women. She reviews the entire complex topic of bone health, focusing on how food affects the skeleton, which foods weaken it, and how smart food choices can strengthen it and prevent fragility fractures. She also presents recipes. There is no index. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
