Message from Professor Moira O’Brien
Professor Moira O’Brien was asked if she would ever endorse treating bone loss alternatively. She stated “I entered medical school when I was turning 16, I set up the first Osteoporosis clinic in Ireland and I have extensive experience in this area, I personally would NEVER recommend a person treat Osteoporosis alternatively.
Osteoporosis is a disease and should be treated by prescribed medications that have had extensive clinical research done on them to prove they work.
The majority of people do not need multiple supplements, eating a healthy diet is far more important, yet many people are spending excessive amounts of money on them.
Many people in Ireland are lacking in Vitamin D as very few foods contain it, therefore in general a Vitamin D supplement is often recommended”.
