Doctor’s statement…”

“Your history of osteoporosis: While I am not surprised that you have tackled this and won, with a combination of your vitamin D and your wonderful weightbearing exercise, the CoreAlign, Pilates, and the way that you eat, the osteoporosis is better without any prescription medications.
