Approximately 65% of women over 40 years old living in the West are diagnosed with osteoporosis and osteopenia and are told they need drugs. Naturally, with the demands of pregnancy and breastfeeding, women require large stores of calcium in their bones. After menopause there is no need for these large deposits of calcium and the bones appear less dense upon testing (BMD) – this is normal, not sickness. There are a few women who do have seriously diseased bones, but drug therapy provides minimal benefits with the potential for very serious side effects. Real osteoporosis is caused by the excess acid and protein content of the Western diet. The McDougall Program corrects the metabolic imbalances that cause bone loss and the bones regain their strength.

For more details, read McDougall’s Medicine–A Challenging Second Opinion. This book challenges the currently accepted treatments for the most commonly diagnosed diseases. Learn why medical care is ineffective for cancer, osteoporosis, heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, arthritis, kidney disease and more. Patients should not only refuse ineffective treatments, but they should pursue real solutions provided by changes in their diet and lifestyle.
