A guide to understanding and reversing osteoporosis with a 12-week plan featuring diet, lifestyle, and supplement adjustments to achieve micronutrient sufficiency and rebuild stronger bones
Mira and Jayson Calton know all about building strong bones; Mira developed advanced osteoporosis at the age of 30 and, with Jayson's help, reversed her disease through micronutrient therapy. Readers will be shocked to learn that their so-called "healthy" diets may actually be contributing to their micronutrient deficiencies and ultimately their osteoporosis. In fact, the majority of the foods many of us eat are micronutrient-poor, filled with what the Caltons call "naked calories"--foods that have been stripped of their essential, health-promoting micronutrients. Our diets are also filled with antinutrients--naturally occurring substances in certain foods that can reduce the body's ability to absorb micronutrients. In Mira's case, she was getting plenty of these naked calories and antinutrients, but very few of the vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, and amino acids her body needed to maintain strong bones.
In Rebuild Your Bones, the Caltons reveal how our lifestyle habits may be depleting essential micronutrients in our bodies. They provide an easy-to-follow prescriptive plan to reverse these effects, including recipes and meal plans that will appeal to all readers (including keto, paleo, low-carb, vegan, and low-fat options), exercise advice, supplement plans, and checklists. This is the go-to guide for anyone who wants to safely and naturally reverse or stave off osteoporosis, without drugs.
