--Mehmet C. Oz, MD, coauthor of YOU: The Owner's Manual and YOU: Staying Young

"Annemarie Colbin is a long-time mentor of mine. The Whole-Food Guide to Strong Bones combines her wisdom with much common sense."
--Christiane Northrup, MD, author of Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause

"The Whole-Food Guide to Strong Bones gives readers the recipe for maintaining bone health without medication. It is a must-read for anyone interested in preserving or restoring the health of their bones."
--Joel M. Evans, MD, assistant clinical professor at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, founder and director of the Center for Women's Health in Stamford, CT, and author of The Whole Pregnancy Handbook

"The Whole-Food Guide to Strong Bones provides the knowledge and inspiration for maintaining a lifelong healthy skeleton. This brilliantly written book is a must-read, especially for those who may be at risk for osteoporosis."
--Carol Ellis, MD, medical director of Natural Medicine and Rehabilitation in Branchburg, NJ

"This book by Annemarie Colbin, one of America's most respected food therapists, gives us a definitive guide to maximizing bone health as nature intended -- with a balanced diet and lifestyle. Her evidence-based approach (replete with discussions of hundreds of published clinical studies) makes this book an important reference for both consumers and healthcare professionals. Plus, the recipes are fabulous."
--Woodson Merrell, MD, chairman of the Department of Integrative Medicine at Beth Israel Medical Center in New York City, author of The Source

"Annemarie Colbin is a brilliant nutritionist who has once again shown that optimal well-being can be found through living a naturally healthy lifestyle. At a time when our healthcare specialists rely too much on medications, she presents a program that relies on whole foods, exercise, and spiritual understanding. I'm happy to prescribe this book first for anyone wishing to keep their bones strong and live long."
--Stephan Rechtschaffen, MD, cofounder and chairman of the Omega Institute for Holistic Studies in Rhinebeck, NY, author of Time Shifting, and coauthor of The Omega Vitality and Wellness Book

"Movement and exercise are necessary to healthy living. But exercise is difficult if you do not have a healthy, strong bone structure to support muscle function. I look forward to giving my patients Annemarie Colbin's newest book, The Whole-Food Guide to Strong Bones, as it presents the most comprehensive yet understandable approach to bone health that I have encountered."
--Nancy L. Shaw, MA, MTPT, director of the Myofascial Pain Treatment Center in Washington, DC, founder of the National Association of Myofascial Trigger Point Therapists and the Shaw Myotherapy Institute

"Another classic from the mother of whole food eating, who influenced so many of us with her book Food and Healing over twenty years ago. Her sage advice in The Whole-Food Guide to Strong Bones is essential for everyone concerned about bone loss and what to do about it."
--Frank Lipman, MD, author, Spent: End Exhaustion and Feel Great Again

Online Reviews

"I found Colbin's book to be extremely informative without being preachy and written in a manner that one is able to immediately comprehend. Colbin looks at the whole picture and breaks her book down into three detailed and informative parts with an impressive reference section. I truly believe one is never too old nor too young to take care of one's bones and this book is an excellent way to begin."
"I found it filled with many important facts about bone strength. It details the risk of osteoporosis, the causes and who can get it. There is a very informative chapter about what we need in addition to calcium for our bones. A lot of this information I never knew. I found it very interesting."
--One 2 Try

"The best thing that Colbin accomplishes with this book is to show you that all's not as cut and dry as your doc or drug makers might have you believe. It's certainly not a bad book to have around when you're planning meals. Plus, it's not just a book for women. Men suffer from bone fractures too!"

"This book is great for anyone wanting to know more about osteoporosis or fractures. There is a great deal of information here on causes and risk."
--Scraps of Life

"This book outlines what the correct balances are to strive for, and includes over 80 pages of recipes to provide us with the right blend of nutrients . . . I agree that whole foods are the most important component of dietary health. I would highly recommend this book for anyone who worries when she sees the list of 'warning signs of osteoporosis'"
