Many years ago Dr. Susan E. Brown, PhD began to “rethink” osteoporosis — its nature, causes, prevention, and treatment — starting a revolution in bone health that continues to this day.
Dr. Brown first became interested in bone health when she lost her grandmother, at the age of 102, to complications from a hip fracture. Dr. Brown couldn’t help wondering, how much longer might this alert and active woman have lived had she not fractured her hip? Her interest grew into a compulsion as she sought to understand why the disease existed and what we could do about it.
As an anthropologist using a cross-cultural perspective, Dr. Brown discovered that the nature of osteoporosis is very different than commonly believed. She found that cultures with the highest calcium intake also have the highest osteoporosis rates, despite conventional wisdom that calcium levels dictate bone health. Dr. Brown’s research found that though people in many countries have lower bone density than we do in the United States, their fracture rates are significantly lower. Her research led her to a startling conclusion: the disease of osteoporosis is a preventable disorder created by our lifestyles and eating habits.
Dr. Brown’s “rethinking” has led to Better Bones — a comprehensive, whole-body approach to bone health that reaches beyond the estrogen and calcium myths to truly support healthy bone growth and regeneration through nutrition and lifestyle.
Through more than 20 years of research, Dr. Brown has learned that our bones need a variety of nutrients in addition to calcium to repair themselves, and that the body needs to maintain a balanced pH to prevent further loss of bone.

ugar is in the news a lot these day and it’s clear that the consumption of sugar is one of the biggest global health concerns today. What most don’t understand, however, is how a diet full of sugar and carbohydrates can be linked to severe, life-threatening diseases such as heart disease, Alzheimer’s, MS, and cancer. Dr. Jacoby’s goal is to correct this. In SUGAR CRUSH, Dr. Jacoby puts forth the groundbreaking argument that Carbohydrates (sugar) + Trauma = Nerve Damage, Pain, and Dysfunction. This is the sugar crush, and it happens when too much sugar in the blood triggers nerve compression, causing chronic inflammation in the nerves. Inflamed and damaged nerves cause reduced blood flow and the disruption of important messaging between the brain and organs. Simply put, damaged nerves cause damage to the organs they connect, meaning sugar is the potential root cause of a wide host of diseases

The Suppers model slashes through tired assumptions and conventional wisdom about how to get healthy and prizes personal experimentation with food, exercise and behavioral change.
