After reading her book, I feel she has an incredible wealth of knowledge about how to help rebuild bone density with proper nutrition and exercise. On Betterbones.com, it shows you can consult with her ($325). It sounds like she will look at an individual's test results, review tests that have been done, discuss others that could be done, and provide insight and recommendations based on a person's unique situation.

I would recommend you "Bone Health Guide" by Lani Simpson, DC, CCD. Really a good book, lots of information about all the osteoporosis's medicines, needed dietary changes, calcium supplements, nutrition, excercise, very informativ. (amazon)
BrendaS I have not had a consultation with her but I did call and talk to one of her representatives at length. I decided against the consultation. I've read her books and have been following her advice for years. I have done extensive testing. The consultant was not clear on how I would benefit from a consultation. Reading Keith McCormack's Whole Body Approach to Osteoporosis and going to an interpretive doctor of medicine who specializes in osteoporosis also influenced my decision. Your situation is different and you may come to a different conclusion. I suggest you call and talk to Dr. Brown's representative and then decide what is best for you.
I have taken ibrondronate (like Boniva )for 5 years. Off of it for about 6 months. Improved ever so slightly the first year and then nothing. I originally tried Better Bones but didn’t get much help with that however I wasn’t consistent with taking the pills. I have celiac disease and figure that’s where all the damage came from. No family history of osteoporosis.
I had my first prolio shot in sept after having kyphoplasty for three fractures. The kyphoplasty helped a lot and have no side effects so far with the prolio.
