"I was diagnosed and treated for thyroid cancer in May 2000… after surgery the doctors told me they had to touch my parathyroid and put it back in… basically saying that with a hope and a prayer, it would still manage my calcium levels for me. Since 2000 my bone density has dropped into osteopenia and getting close to osteoporosis… allegedly.
"I have really enjoyed reading your in-depth research and it confirms my intuition about calcium supplementing. I was also interested to read about the bone density machines…
"This book is so good that I am going to re-read it carefully and create a strategy for moving forward to keep my bones well into my old age. Congratulations on a great job!!"
"Shirley, thank you for your book, The Truth About Osteoporosis. Coming from a background in traditional medicine, I have never looked at osteoporosis in the way you describe it. It has been a real eye-opener!
"The section on the root causes of Osteoporosis (according to Dr. Shallenberger) made so much more sense than the usual ‘lack of calcium’ explanation. My doctor has recommended that I go for a bone scan just to establish a baseline for my bone density. After reading this section in your book I really don’t see the need, as it won’t tell me anything about the strength of my bones!
"I recommend this book as an invaluable resource for any woman approaching that time in her life where being well informed about her health is vital to maintaining great quality of life."
If you (or someone you care about) have been diagnosed with bone loss (osteoporosis or osteopenia) this guidebook is a must-read for you!
Save yourself hours of research looking for answers to your questions as I reveal the secrets I have learned! Here’s what you are about to discover …
Have you been frightened by the “statistics” published about osteoporosis? Unfortunately osteoporosis knows no age boundaries. Even people in the prime of life have been diagnosed with this life-limiting condition!
I know of people who live their lives in fear because of these scary statistics! Instead of looking forward to their golden years, they are dreading them.
You don’t have to say ‘goodbye’ to your favorite activities for fear of spontaneous fractures! Living a life filled with fear is not my idea of a quality life.
“My goal was to achieve optimum health… and to do it naturally.” Shirley Alsop
My name is Shirley Alsop, author of The Truth About Osteoporosis. I wrote this guidebook for YOU! You were drawn to this title either because:

I’m probably the least likely person to ever write a book! But I had the extreme distress of witnessing both my parents suffer with devastating diseases in their waning years of life – my father with multiple sclerosis, my mum with osteoporosis and alzheimer’s. I would not wish this horrendous experience on anyone!
The worst part was that I realized the medical world had nothing to offer us in these terrible situations. It angered and frustrated me. (As a conventional-medicine oriented nurse and midwife, this was a radical paradigm shift for me!)
So when I was diagnosed with osteopenia myself, I was highly motivated to research and learn all… Read more…
