Osteoporosis is a weakening of the bone structure that results in a slow, insidious loss of calcium. It is a degenerative disease that starts slowly for some in childhood and for others in adulthood. In women, it can accelerate after menopause, and in men, it accelerates after age 65. In the United Stotes, osteoporosis has reached epidemic proportions. Consider the statistics:
- One out of every three women develops osteoporosis by the age of 60.
- One out of every ten men deveiops osteoporosis by the oge of 60.
- After the age of 65, 90% of all fractures are due to osteoporosis.
Up until now, there has been only one overall preventive measure that scientists have come up with in their war against osteoporosis-to increase our daily intake of calcium. The problem is that the results of increasing daily calcium intake have not proven to be all that effective.
In this startling new book, Dr. Nancy Appleton has uncovered a way to prevent osteoporosis without costly drugs, extensive supplements, and expensive treatments. Her theory is remarkably simple. Instead of treating the symptom-a loss of calcium-she looks at the cause-why calcium is drawn from the bone in the first place. By understanding the principle of body chemistry balance, Dr. Appleton shows us what we do to bring on calcium loss and what we can do to correct the problem.
