skeletonWhen I was diagnosed with severe osteoporosis at the age of 52, the nurse practioner urged me to take Fosamax. She said I was in danger of fractures at any moment. Shaken, I went home and researched the benefits and side effects of Fosamax, and I refused the treatment. Instead, I opted to see a naturopathic physician, Dr. Steven D’Antonio.

Using computer (LSA) technology, Dr. D’Antonio pinpointed nutritional deficits and prescribed supplements that improved my physical health and emotional outlook. I felt better and slept better than before.  He also suggested that I switch to an alkaline diet, but when I read the alkaline cookbooks on bookstore shelves, the recipes didn’t appeal to me.  I made some changes in my diet, such as giving up Diet Coke, but not much else.

However, my next yearly Dexascan revealed that the osteoporosis had worsened. Desolate and desperate, I prepared to leave my position as a middle school math teacher and decided, against my better judgment, to take Fosamax. It was then that a colleague of mine at school told me about Dr. Robert Rogers, an M.D. in Longwood, Florida, who had literally saved his life.  What I learned from Dr. Rogers about the effect of diet on the body set my life in a new direction!  Continuing to work with both Dr. D’Antonio and Dr. Rogers, I lost 30 pounds in 5 months, weighing 112 (down from 142). I feel wonderful, peaceful, healthy, and strong.

I want to share with you what I have learned so that you, too, may enjoy good health and live in peace! For more information, including menus, recipes, medical information, and inspirational reflections, please visit If you have questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to let me know.
