Updated on May 5, 2020

One of the most common health concerns that I receive questions on is how to prevent osteoporosis. I routinely review bone scan test results and food diaries of people who diligently follow conventional recommendations on calcium intake and are discouraged by worsening test results.

Sunflower Dill Sauce

I almost never eat dairy products, but like a lot of people who follow a dairy-free diet, I find myself craving different types of cheese from time to time.
