Basically she is trying to sell a product rather than give women guidelines on what supplements to take to build better bones. There are some good tips here, such as proper ph is critical to bones, but she forgot to mention important supplements such as strontium, or a magnesium that does not have a laxative effect - mag malate.

This booklet has some good information. It also addresses the serious dangers of drugs like Fosamax. The FDA has known about these dangers for some time but is very slow in addressing the problem.
Surprising amount of helpful information in a very small book

I read several full-length books on osteoporosis and was nearly overwhelmed. This book takes the core information one needs to know about diagnosis and treatment options and concisely but sufficiently informs the reader.
Well-written advert for Peter Gillham's OsteoCalm

This is a very well-written essay summarizing alternative dietary wisdom on osteoporosis. To wit: Magnesium equal to Calcium, D3, A, C and especially K2. Trace minerals too. Warnings against conventional osteo-drugs. See OsteoCalm in iHerb's storefront and read the ingredient list if the book's no longer available.

I was disappointed because this pamphlet was mostly just blatant advertising for a specific product.

I knew a lot about bone strengthening, but after I read this booklet I realized, that I knew not so much at all, I never learned much about other nutrients, beside calcium, vitamin D, so now I have much better understanding, highly recommend for everyone, even for those, who think they know everything about bone strength =)
Very useful information
